Bioethics Mediation: A Guide to Shaping Shared Solutions
Bioethics Mediation: A Guide to Shaping Shared Solutions provides the conceptual framework supporting the need for mediation in the medical context, then provides real-world case studies and analyses detailing the "how-to’s" for effective bioethics mediations:
how bioethics mediation differs from both traditional mediation and traditional bioethics consultation
how to apply mediation skills and techniques to health care disputes
how to implement a mediation program in a hospital or other health care setting.
Working from the assumption that bioethics disputes are essentially conflicts in need of skilled dispute mediators, this hands-on guide is designed to teach mediation skills in order to clarify and address the underlying issues.
