Bioethics and the Law

Author: Janet Dolgin,Lois L. Shepherd

Publisher: Wolters Kluwer Law & Business

ISBN: 1454832576

Category: Law

Page: 1032

View: 991

Bioethics and the Law takes a multidisciplinary approach that combines legal discussion with jurisprudential, philosophical, and sociological materials. Strong expressions of different points of view highlight debates about bioethical issues. The text underscores the need to mediate between the law's focus on broad rules and the bioethicist's concern with context and detail. Students are required to consider the ethical implications of health care as a business, face the shifting parameters of the provider/patient relationship in healthcare, and understand the role of government in designing and implementing healthcare programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Bioethics and the Law supplements the traditional focus of bioethics on the interest of the individual with a second focus on the socio-economic developments that shape healthcare. Connecting broad public healthcare issues to concerns of the individual patient/healthcare consumer, the text promotes understanding of unsettling and complex situations and shows the implications of bioethical developments for understandings of personhood. A helpful glossary defines basic terms and several short appendices summarize recent developments in science and technology. The Third Edition offers in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists. Separate sections are devoted to issues related to individuals and those related primarily to communities. A significantly expanded discussion of access to health care explores the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the debate about its constitutionality as well as new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics. A new chapter on privacy and essentialism focuses on bioethical questions occasioned by genetic information and neuroimaging. There is new consideration of discrimination in health care as well as new material on its business aspects. Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents: in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists separate sections on issues related to individuals and those related to communities significantly expanded discussion of access to health care the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and debate about its constitutionality new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics , a new chapter on privacy and essentialism, focusing on bioethical questions around genetic information and neuroimaging consideration of discrimination in health care new material on the business aspects of health care

Pocket Notes on Neonatology

Author: Mark Davies,David Cartwright

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0729578321

Category: Medical

Page: 182

View: 4977

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Neonatology is a sub-speciality of paediatrics devoted to the care of the newborn infant. The wider care of the newborn infant includes not only the sick neonate but also the well newborn infant. The practice of neonatology is generally limited to specialist neonatal units and nurseries – ranging from those nurseries that deal with the well newborn infant to neonatal intensive care units. The care of the newborn infant is delivered by full time neonatologists, visiting medical officer neonatologists, paediatric registrars, senior house officers, nurses holding neonatal certificates, midwives and JMO’s. The book has been specifically written, formatted and designed to be carried whilst on duty, and contains information that staff in neonatal units will need during the course of their day – especially that information required often, but not yet committed to memory. This information requires continual reinforcement and in a busy unit there is no time to consult other references such as textbooks or computer based information. Portable clinical reference Covers procedures such as peripheral IV, umbilical arterial and venous catheter insertion, central venous line insertion and peripheral IA line insertion Coverage of standard infusions of dopamine, dobutamine, morphine and midazolam, insulin and PGE1 Ready Reckoner table, by infant birthweight, for size of ETTs and umbilical lines (usage and insertion), and common drug and infusion dosages Resuscitation and infection algorithms included
