Now more than ever, ethical management in healthcare requires more than just a commitment to "doing the right thing." It requires the ability to analyze highly complex situations in a volatile environment, to address the myriad needs and concerns of patients and other stakeholders, to thoughtfully evaluate diverse courses of action, and ultimately to choose the right path when the moral "rules" are not always clear. The Tracks We Leave: Ethics and Management Dilemmas in Healthcare, now in its third edition, provides guidance for current and future healthcare managers as they confront the ethical challenges of their day-to-day work. Structured around a series of real-life cases, the book explores the ethical implications of such topics as: Medical errors Conflicts of interest Sexual harassment and gender discrimination Physician impairment Emergency preparedness Workforce reductions End-of-life decisions Through a host of relevant, timely scenarios and thought-provoking essays, the book examines ethics as a leadership imperative, describes organizational policies and infrastructure components that support an ethical culture, and presents a framework for ethical analysis that is both comprehensive and pragmatic.
