The Ethical Practice of Psychology in Organizations

The Ethical Practice of Psychology in Organizations Lowest new price: $8.25
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $19.95

This ethics casebook for industrial/organizational psychology is a substantially revised and updated version of a book first published by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology in 1985. Since then, I/O psychology has become a far more complex, technically advanced and widely used discipline, and is practiced in an increasingly litigious environment. This casebook reflects those new realities and is intended to stimulate the process of thinking ethically about I/O psychology. "The Ethical Practice of Psychology in Organziations" provides a wide variety of examples of the kinds of circumstances that both practitioners and researchers can and do encounter. The cases, based on real-life examples, cover dilemmas in the areas of personnel selection, organizational diagnosis and intervention, managing consulting relationships, research and academic issues, professional training and certification, billing and marketing, and the ethics of professional behaviour. Each case is presented in a four-tier format that (1) describes a problem, (2) cites the relevant sections of the APA Ethics Code Standards, (3) interprets the case and (4) discusses implications.

Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia (Monograph Published Simultaneously As the Journal of Pharmaceutical Care in Pain & Symptom Control , Vol 3&4, No 1-4)

Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia (Monograph Published Simultaneously As the Journal of Pharmaceutical Care in Pain & Symptom Control , Vol 3&4, No 1-4) Lowest new price: $20.00
Lowest used price: $4.92
List price: $39.95
Author: Arthur G Lipman
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia brings to the foreground of the controversy over euthanasia and assisted suicide not only the moral and legal issues, but also regulatory and empirical issues, issues of prudent public policy, and choice of drugs. You'll witness candid accounts of current practice, legal and extralegal, of drug use in assisted suicide and euthanasia, and be encouraged to objectively reexamine the issues that are at stake. With this book, you'll acquire a solid understanding of the array and complexity of the social questions faced by terminally ill patients, their physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia was chosen as one of Doody's “250 Best Health Sciences Books” for 1996!

Much of the focus of Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia is on patient decisionmaking and the factors leading to a patient’s choice to hasten death. Readers learn from different medical perspectives, the key psychiatric, medical, and social factors that require assessment when terminally ill patients, such as those with AIDS or cancer, express the desire to die immediately. Readers are also introduced to issues about depression, pain, psychological distress, anxiety, organic mental disorders, and a variety of demographic and social variables. Among the important topics readers learn about are:

  • nursing perspectives on assisted suicide and euthanasia
  • end of life issues in patients with AIDS
  • Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act
  • current law on physician-assisted suicide
  • euthanasia and euthanizing drugs in the Netherlands
  • toxicological issues with drugs used to end life
  • when drugs fail to end life

    Because euthanasia and assisted suicide do occur worldwide, it is crucial that the most appropriate, most expedient drugs be used and administered properly. This book dispels the myth, quite common in the United States, that morphine and benzodiazepines are the best drugs for ending life and points out the urgent need for research on drugs to be used for this purpose. Currently, as this book illustrates, there exists little reliable scientific data for identifying the fatal dose of a drug in humans, yet drugs are used daily to induce death, both successfully and unsuccessfully. Readers learn the many factors that can affect the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of a drug, and so intensify or reduce its toxicity.

    Drug Use in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia acts as a guide for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, persons suffering from fatal diseases, and their families and friends as they struggle with the moral, religious, and legal issues that accompany the idea of ending a life of suffering. The authors, who come from a wide variety of backgrounds, gather the facts, issues, and arguments to allow those involved in the controversy, either publicly or privately, to make the most informed decision possible.

The Visible Human Project: Informatic Bodies and Posthuman Medicine

The Visible Human Project: Informatic Bodies and Posthuman Medicine Lowest new price: $33.60
Lowest used price: $4.50
List price: $41.95
Author: Catherine Waldby

The Visible Human Project is a critical investigation of the spectacular, three-dimensional recordings of real human bodies - dissected, photographed and converted into visual data files - made by the US National Library of Medicine in Baltimore. Catherine Waldby uses new ideas from cultural studies, science studies and social studies of the computer to situate the Visible Human Project in its historical and cultural context, and to consider the meanings such an object has within a computerised culture.
In this fascinating and important book, Catherine Waldby explores how advances in medical technologies have changed the way we view and study the human body, and places the VHP within the history of technologies such as the X-ray and CT-scan, which allow us to view the human interior.
Bringing together medical conceptions of the human body with theories of visual culture from Foucault to Donna Haraway, Waldby links the VHP to a range of other biomedical projects, such as the Human Genome Project and cloning, which approach living bodies as data sources. She argues that the VHP is an example of the increasingly blurred distinction between `living' and 'dead' human bodies, as the bodies it uses are digitally preserved as a resource for living bodies, and considers how computer-based biotechnologies affect both medical and non-medical meanings of the body's life and death, its location and its limits.

Research Ethics in Exercise, Health and Sports Sciences puts ethics at the centre of research in these rapidly expanding fields of knowledge.
