Ethical rational, facts, and center techniques for choosing kidney donors all in one volume. This is the first book of its kind, devoted solely to preoperative issues for living kidney donors and those who counsel them. The eight chapters are devoted to vital areas that are comprehensively addressed by experienced professionals. The book presents a unified ethical and factual approach that is essential for all transplant centers to understand. It is a readable and understandable ethical foundation for living kidney donation that is free of jargon. It includes balanced, hard to find factual summaries that are essential for acceptable kidney donor counseling. As transplant centers increasingly turn to living kidney donors, this book is an essential step forward in the field.
The book will appeal to transplant physicians and surgeons, transplant coordinators and social workers, nephrologists who have patients on dialysis or who evaluate potential living kidney donors and to potential living kidney donors and their recipients. As a practical application of medical ethics to an important field, it will be of interest to medical ethicists as well.
