The Catholic University of America Press
This book contains 15 chapters for medical practitioners by practicing medical professionals, theologians, bioethicists, and philosophers from the US, Italy, and Australia, who address critical issues they encounter in medical practice and Catholic responses to them. They detail foundational elements of Catholic care, namely scripture, moral philosophy, theology, anthropology, and pastoral care; the practice of authentic Catholic medical care in various medical disciplines (reproductive health and gynecology, fertility, pediatrics, caring for older adults, caring for the critically ill, surgery, rehabilitation medicine, psychology, and pharmacy); and medical education, research, and practice.
