Medical Ethics in Health Care Chaplaincy


Edited by: Walter Moczynski, Hille Haker, Katrin Bentele

Medical Ethics in Health Care Chaplaincy is a response to the new challenges spiritual care providers are confronted with in a profession that has faced dramatic change in function and scope over the last few decades. The rich collection of essays brings together the experience, approaches and research of many US and German scholars in the area of ethics, medicine, theology, psychology and spiritual care. This is an invaluable resource addressing the many spiritual, religious and ethical issues in providing care to the sick and dying for hospital chaplains, clergy, health care professionals, teachers, academics, ethics committee members and students in medical ethics, theology and/or religious studies.
