Résumé :

In this volume leading ethicists and clinicians from the United States and Europe explore ethical and scientific concerns about the diagnosis and prognosis of Alzheimer disease. The contributors examine the challenges of applying palliative procedures, key philosophical and theological concepts central to end-of-life decisions, and the changing patterns of relevant medical, social, and economic policies. Cross-cultural, multidisciplinary, and state-of-the-art, this volume is an important resource for bioethicists, clinicians, and policy makers.
