Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 1405139129
Category: Medical
Page: 223
View: 8421
Following the GMC's call for greater social and behavioural science input into undergraduate medical education, this brand new title in the Lecture Notes series provides an understanding of how education, social class, family, economics and occupational circumstances, as well as cultural and ethnic influences, shape patients and health professionals alike. A deeper appreciation and understanding of these issues can have a positive effect on clinical diagnosis and practice. Emphasising clinical relevance at all times, the book features photographs and line drawings to illustrate key points, and case studies that provide real-life illustrations of the points discussed. It also contains 'points of view' boxes which encourage critical thinking and challenge the reader to come up with their own explanations for the phenomena described. Lecture Notes: The Social Basis of Medicine provides information and materials useful not only for undergraduate medical students, but also for recently graduated and practising doctors who wish to have a greater understanding of, and to develop their skills in, this area.

View: 1652
As a healthcare practitioner, you will face a broad range of professional dilemmas in your everyday practice. From seeking consent to upholding patient confidentiality, you'll rely on your knowledge of ethics, the law and professional codes of conduct to guide your actions. Balancing these three strands can be difficult, but with detailed scenarios and accessible discussion, this book guides you through the complexities of practice. Taking a practice-based approach, the text explores the combination of ethical, legal and professional issues which characterise the field of healthcare. A range of experienced contributors come together to provide: ■ detailed analysis of confidentiality, accountability, consent, capacity and justice, all grounded within the daily practice context; ■ authoritative guidance through discussion of legal cases, excerpts from statutes and extracts from professional guidelines; ■ realistic scenarios drawn from a range of health settings, unravelling and illustrating the guidelines, statutes and policies which influence practice; ■ advice on balancing the conflicting pressures of the modern healthcare context, from facing time limitations to challenging the unprofessional practice of others. Ethics, Law and Professional Issues puts you at the centre of some of a practitioner's most difficult decisions. It is therefore an essential resource for any student of healthcare looking to develop an ethically, legally and professionally sound approach to practice.

Biological Warfare Against Crops


Author: S. Whitby
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 0230514642
Category: Political Science
Page: 271
View: 3198
Until now little attention has been paid to the development of military capabilities designed to target food crops with biological warfare agents. This book represents the first substantive study of state-run activities in this field. It shows that all biological warfare programmes have included a component concerned with the development of anti-crop biological warfare agents and munitions. Current concern over the proliferation of biological weapons is placed in the context of the initiative to strengthen the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The book concludes by arguing that the risks posed by this form of warfare can be minimised, but that this would depend largely on the effective and efficient implementation of regimes concerning the peaceful use and control of plant pathogens that pose a risk to human health and the environment.
