Medical, ethical and moral dilemmas are common in all medical fields, including Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM).
However, little attention is paid to these dilemmas in education of residents or in continuous medical education of specialists in PRM.
The European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (EARM) considers moral and ethical issues as an important aspect of its role in the international development of PRM.
Therefore, the EARM has taken the initiative to publish an exercise book that covers a range of clinical, ethical and research dilemmas.
We trust that this initiative will contribute to an increased awareness of the dilemma’s we face daily in our practice in PRM.
