Product Description


The style of the book ensures its readability. It is written in a pithy "note form" style with the book's mascot - the crash-helmeted bike rider - presiding over important "need to know" stuff...the stuff that virtually every doctor will eventually need. Dr Jeremy Sager, Univadis

The curriculum coverage is comprehensive and the level of detail throughout is impressive. This book is delightfully easy to read and logically arranged.

I really enjoyed reading this book and it will come in handy in some of my teaching.

Dr Steven De Wilde, GP Trainer and Academic, Tooting, South London

Format: Paperback
Medical Ethics and Sociology covers the key topics included in undergraduate medical ethics. I found the style of writing to be very clear and concise and readable. I appreciated the fact that the background to the legal system was explained early on in the book as this was useful information that helps to appreciate the Articles relevant to Medicine.

The layout of the book makes it a good resource for revision as the chapters are very clearly set out so that it is easy to dip into the book when revising a particular topic. The figures used as very effective as many of them are laid out in table format such as `How to write an ethics essay' and `Comparisons of ethical theories'. The tables are easy to remember and complement the information included in the bulk of the text.

In addition to the medical ethics chapters, there are chapters covering public health issues such as impact of social class on health, gender and ethnicity differences as well as a whole chapter dedicated to Clinical Governance. These chapters are useful to read for revision purposes but I will read a Public Health text to learn about the topics in greater detail.

Overall, I think that this book is a useful revision tool and feel that it is pitched at the correct level to consolidate understanding of ethics. Having covered the material in depth during previous years of my course, I am finding this book useful in the preparation for Finals exams.
