Administration Ethics

Executive Decisions in Canadian Healthcare

By Joseph Byrne


Administration Ethics explores the foundations, framework, and practice of ethical decision making in healthcare administration and considers the Healthcare Administrator’s role in ethical management and health policy development. Throughout the text, Joseph Byrne demonstrates the relationship between the foundational concepts of ethics theory, principles, codes, and rights. He positions each concept as a step in the Four-Stage Decision Model to assist students as they evaluate – and later participate in – exceptionally complex ethical decision making. The practical, case-based structure will appeal to graduate and upper-level graduate students in Health Administration, Health Studies, and health-related Philosophy programs as well as healthcare professionals involved in administration and management, or working within policy and health ethics committees.
