Note This book discusses feature films that enrich our understanding of doctor-patient dilemmas. The book comprises general clinical ethics themes and principles and is written in accessible language. Each theme is discussed and eliminated in various chapters that are each devoted to a particular film. Chapters start with a discussion of the film itself, which shares details behind the making of the film; box-office and critical reception; casting, and other facts about production. The chapter then situates the film in a history of medicine and medical sociology context before it delves into the clinical ethics issues in the film, addressing how/why the film is considered can throw light on clinical ethics, and how to use it as a teaching aid for clinical ethics; where does it mirror, and where does it depart, from reality; and did the film help to bring certain issues to the public's attention? The book is a perfect instructor's guide for anyone teaching bioethics, healthcare ethics, medical sociology, medical history, healthcare systems narrative medicine, or nursing ethics
