AMA Code of Medical Ethics

The Librarians' Internet Index (LII, 3/2/2006) reminds
us that the AMA Code of Medical Ethics, with related updates
and opinions, can be read online or downloaded to PDAs.
The code covers social policy issues (such as abortion, capital
punishment, cloning, and end-of-life care), patient-physician
relationships, confidentiality, and other ethical issues. The "CEJA
Reports" include papers on topics such as medical testimony and
organ donation. You can also find a history of the AMA principles
of medical ethics on the site.
