What About the Family?

Practices of Responsibility in Care

Edited by Hilde Lindemann, Janice McLaughlin, and Marian A. Verkerk

  • Puts forward, uniquely, an ethic centered on the family as it pertains to health care, an ethic that is distinct from health care ethics, feminist ethics, or an ethic of care
  • Comprises contributions from bioethicists, as well as scholars from fields as diverse as sociology, philosophy, medical sciences, and nursing
  • Builds on previous work in bioethics through its interdisciplinarity and its focus on the practices of responsibility at work in familial and professional care of patients
