My book, Rethinking Health Care Ethics—co-authored with Kasia Kozlowska, a child/adolescent psychiatrist from the University of Sydney—has just been published by Palgrave Macmillan. We have made it available open access, as a free download, in order to reach a broad audience of health professionals, not just bioethicists. In the book, we present a psychologically grounded approach to clinical ethics that is oriented specifically toward students/trainees, teachers, and clinicians, with a particular emphasis on learning and teaching. I hope you will download the book, take a look, and also forward the link to others who may be interested (individuals but also groups).

Here is a link to the free download:

The book will also be available on a print-on-demand basis (low cost; free shipping) sometime around the end of August. You can use the above link for that purpose, too. Note that if you want a print copy, order it from Springer (above link). No online bookseller will be any cheaper (many will be more expensive), and the publisher provides free worldwide shipping.
