The expanding field of bioethics has created a need in psychiatry for rapid access to the complex bioethics literature. This is especially true in consultation-liaison work. An annotated bibliography was created by a task force of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine charged with exploring how psychiatrists function on bioethics committees. The bibliography is organized into headings that reflect how bioethical problems came to the attention of psychiatrists. Introductory references allow the reader an overview of the history of bioethics and a selection of useful textbooks. References are provided explaining how ethical principles are used. References are also organized by areas of medical work frequently visited by consultation-liaison psychiatrists.
