There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The new 2017 Edition of Business Torts: A Fifty-State Guide helps you quickly assess the merits and pitfalls of litigation in any given jurisdiction allowing you to make the best decisions for your clients. In addition to the very significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant differences include: Some states have not recognized a cause of action for negligent interference with an economic advantage. Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against persons in the business of supplying information to others. One state recognizes a cause of action for "strict responsibility misrepresentation." Another state recognizes claims of "prima facie tort" for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories. And these are only a few examples of the more significant differences.

With its unrivaled scope, easy readability, and outstanding clinical relevance, Complementary and Integrative Treatments in Psychiatric Practice is an indispensable resource for psychiatric and other health care professionals. It is also well suited for individuals with mental disorders and their family members who are seeking updated, practical information on complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine (CAIM).

This guide offers advice on how to best tailor treatments to individual patient needs; combine and integrate treatments for optimal patient outcomes; identify high-quality products; administer appropriate doses; and deal with concerns about liability, safety, and herb-drug interactions. Treatments discussed include: Nutrients and neutraceuticals Plant-based medicines Mind-body practices -- breathing techniques, yoga, qigong, tai chi, and meditation Art therapy and equine therapy for children and adolescents Neurotherapy, neurostimulation, and other technologies Psychiatrists and other physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, psychologists, nurses, and other clinicians will benefit from guidelines for decision making, prioritizing, and combining CAIM treatments, as well as safely integrating CAIM with standard approaches. That the treatments considered in this clinician's guide are applied to five of the major DSM-5 categories -- depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma- and stressor-related disorders, bipolar and related disorders, and schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders -- ensures its applicability, timeliness and timelessness.

This dictionary defines various terms typically used in pharmaceutical medicine. A new, 4th edition includes adaptations of the text to the steadily increasing regulatory requirements, particularly in the area of genetics/gene therapy, product quality (e.g., protection against falsified medicines) and of product safety (pharmacovigilance). Further evolving areas that are covered by the 4th edition are typical “grey zones” (health effects often borderline to medicinal products) such as cosmetics and dietary supplements where misleading information is prohibited on one hand but where any health claims need formal authorisation on the other. These but also other areas are reviewed and presented in an updated and – if justified – in an enlarged form.

Doing Business 2017

Equal Opportunity for All

ISBN: 1464809844

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 352

Fourteenth in a series of annual reports comparing business regulation in 190 economies, Doing Business 2017 measures aspects of regulation affecting 10 areas of everyday business activity: • Starting a business • Dealing with construction permits • Getting electricity • Registering property • Getting credit • Protecting minority investors • Paying taxes • Trading across borders • Enforcing contracts • Resolving insolvency These areas are included in the distance to frontier score and ease of doing business ranking. Doing Business also measures features of labor market regulation, which is not included in these two measures. This year’s report introduces major improvements by expanding the paying taxes indicators to cover postfiling processes—tax audits, tax refunds and tax appeals—and presents analysis of pilot data on selling to the government which measures public procurement regulations. Also for the first time this year Doing Business collects data on Somalia, bringing the total number of economies covered to 190. Using the data originally developed by Women, Business and the Law, this year for the first time Doing Business adds a gender component to three indicators—starting a business, registering property, and enforcing contracts—and finds that those economies which limit women’s access in these areas have fewer women working in the private sector both as employers and employees. The report updates all indicators as of June 1, 2016, ranks economies on their overall “ease of doing business†?, and analyzes reforms to business regulation †“ identifying which economies are strengthening their business environment the most. Doing Business illustrates how reforms in business regulations are being used to analyze economic outcomes for domestic entrepreneurs and for the wider economy. It is a flagship product produced in partnership by the World Bank Group that garners worldwide attention on regulatory barriers to entrepreneurship. More than 137 economies have used the Doing Business indicators to shape reform agendas and monitor improvements on the ground. In addition, the Doing Business data has generated over 2,182 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals since its inception.
