Publisher's Summary

This book exposes some of the hardest decisions to be made in a profession in which bodies are vulnerable and souls are laid bare. Doctors on the Edge is the true account of doctors who are faced with wrenching moral dilemmas, thrust upon them uninvited and unexpected. Sometimes complementary and sometimes conflicting, law, medicine, and morality intrude on the daily practice of medicine. In gripping stories that often include life-and-death decisions, doctors maneuver through ambiguities, subjectivity, and the essential principles of medical ethics.

Critic Reviews

"Step aside John Grisham and Robin Cook! With an artistic skill exceeding popular novelists, Fredrick R. Abrams, M.D. illustrates the mysterious truth that life is more surprising than fiction. Prioritizing patients over rigid rules, Abrams probes critical medical dilemmas, encouraging doctors to struggle with the ambiguities of humane health care in the 21st century. Doctors on the Edge pushes readers and practitioners beyond knee-jerk reactive moral judgments to reflective ethical decision-making." (Donald E. Messer, Executive Director, Center for the Church and Global AIDS)

This was not appropriate for me.

Unfortunately this book concerned USA and as I am in UK I found it was not helpful or interesting in my case.
