    Abstract

    Determining proper medical treatment and whether to treat and how to treat child cancer patients calls for a consideration of ethical, familial, and human values, as well as an appreciation of the laws that govern medical practice and define protections afforded patients. This book focuses on the human values involved in decision making about the care and treatment of child cancer patients. The volume consists of a series of essays by 16 medical and legal professionals, organized in 2 parts. Part 1 deals with issues in clinical research and Part 2, which comprises the bulk of the book, addresses issues in patient care. Succinct and well written, the book is recommended not only for medical and legal professionals, but also for parents confronted with medical choices for a child suffering with cancer.
