Experts in literature, clinical medicine, and comics art create an original collection that serves equally well as an excellent introduction to medical ethics and as “case studies” that spark rich discussion among students, practitioners and general readers already familiar with the basics. Each comic focuses on a particular issue in medical ethics: patient autonomy, informed consent, unconscious bias, mandated reporting of suspected abuse, confidentiality, medical mistakes and truth-telling, surrogate decision-making, and futility. Following each story, a brief essay explains the basics of the ethical issue at hand and illuminates how it plays out among the patients, family members and healthcare providers in the particular comic.
