This 2008-2009 edition of an ethics guide for physicians addresses about 200 ethical issues in medicine, covering patient issues such as genetics counseling and testing, as well as professional issues such as relationships with industry representatives, dealing with impaired colleagues, hospital-medical staff relations, and the use of e-mail and health-related online sites. In addition to containing the American Medical Association's nine Principles of Medical Ethics, the book incorporates new and recently revised Opinions, such as the patenting of medical procedures and physician preparation in interrogation. Each Opinion is followed by one or more Roman numerals to identify the Principle from which the opinion is derived. Most Opinions are explained by background reports, which provide a detailed analysis of the salient ethical considerations, as well as the rationale behind the Council's recommendations. These reports are referenced at the end of the Opinions. Finally, each Opinion is followed by a list of annotations reflecting citations to the Opinion in judicial rulings and the medical, ethical, and legal literature. Also included are a table of cases and a table of articles for easy reference. The book will be useful for physicians and other medical professionals and attorneys.(4) Attending promotional activities put on by industry or their designees is not unethical as long as the conference ... connection to a particular commercial firm or product, should be disclosed by faculty members to the activitya#39;s sponsor and toanbsp;...
