A Singapore Bioethics Casebook
In Two Volumes

This casebook aims to support you in your practice, by helping you to recognise and respond to situations in your work that may feature ethical uncertainty, in which it is unclear how to ‘do the right thing.’ It has been developed by physicians and other healthcare and community care professionals, with support from ethics and legal scholars in Singapore and other countries. It aims to reflect the reality of providing care in Singapore today.
