Author: Donald B. Feldman

This laboratory guidebook provides step-by-step procedures that will aid in the dissection and collection of major organs and tissues of the most common species of small animals used in biomedical research. Through extensive use of photographs and illustrations, the dissector is guided through a complete necropsy of each species for the purpose of collecting the organs and tissues routinely examined by pathologists. The techniques described will enable the technician to perform necropsies on almost any mammal in a precise and logical sequence, and to properly collect tissue in order to avoid diagnostic errors. Morphological differences among the various species are discussed.

Author: Thomas G. Gutheil
Brand: Thomas G Gutheil

What do you do when you run into a patient in a public place? How do you respond when a patient suddenly hugs you at the end of a session? Do you accept a gift that a patient brings to make up for causing you some inconvenience? Questions like these—which virtually all clinicians face at one time or another—have serious clinical, ethical, and legal implications. This authoritative, practical book uses compelling case vignettes to show how a wide range of boundary questions arise and can be responsibly resolved as part of the process of therapy. Coverage includes role reversal, gifts, self-disclosure, out-of-office encounters, physical contact, and sexual misconduct.

Moral Development in the Professions: Psychology and Applied Ethics

Moral Development in the Professions: Psychology and Applied Ethics Lowest new price: $33.18
Lowest used price: $16.86
List price: $58.95
Brand: Brand: Psychology Press

Every year in this country, some 10,000 college and university courses are taught in applied ethics. And many professional organizations now have their own codes of ethics. Yet social science has had little impact upon applied ethics. This book promises to change that trend by illustrating how social science can make a contribution to applied ethics.

The text reports psychological studies relevant to applied ethics for many professionals, including accountants, college students and teachers, counselors, dentists, doctors, journalists, nurses, school teachers, athletes, and veterinarians. Each chapter begins with the research base of the cognitive-developmental approach--especially linked to Kohlberg and Rest's Defining Issues Test. Finally, the book summarizes recent research on the following issues:
* moral judgment scores within and between professions,
* pre- and post-test evaluations of ethics education programs,
* moral judgment and moral behavior,
* models of professional ethics education, and
* models for developing new assessment tools.

Researchers in different professional fields investigate different questions, develop different research strategies, and report different findings. Typically researchers of one professional field are not aware of research in other fields. An important aim of the present book is to bring this diverse research together so that cross-fertilization can occur and ideas from one field can transfer to another.

Inclusion: The Politics of Difference in Medical Research (Chicago Studies in Practices of Meaning)

Inclusion: The Politics of Difference in Medical Research (Chicago Studies in Practices of Meaning) Lowest new price: $20.00
Lowest used price: $8.71
List price: $52.00
Author: Steven Epstein

With Inclusion, Steven Epstein argues that strategies to achieve diversity in medical research mask deeper problems, ones that might require a different approach and different solutions.

Formal concern with this issue, Epstein shows, is a fairly recent phenomenon. Until the mid-1980s, scientists often studied groups of white, middle-aged men—and assumed that conclusions drawn from studying them would apply to the rest of the population. But struggles involving advocacy groups, experts, and Congress led to reforms that forced researchers to diversify the population from which they drew for clinical research. While the prominence of these inclusive practices has offered hope to traditionally underserved groups, Epstein argues that it has drawn attention away from the tremendous inequalities in health that are rooted not in biology but in society.

“Epstein’s use of theory to demonstrate how public policies in the health profession are shaped makes this book relevant for many academic disciplines. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice

“A masterful comprehensive overview of a wide terrain.”—Troy Duster, Biosocieties

The Drug Lords: America's Pharmaceutical Cartel

The Drug Lords: America's Pharmaceutical Cartel Lowest new price: $66.99
Lowest used price: $6.00
List price: $12.95
Author: Tonda R. Bian
Brand: Brand: No Barriers Publishing

The Drug Lords...America's Pharmaceutical Cartel shoots a critical look at our over-prescribed, over-medicated society and the role the pharmaceutical industry plays in keeping us there. In just 17 years, the per capita expenditure on legal drugs has increased more than 400%, yet the fact is with more people taking more drugs than ever before, the health of this country continues to decline. The blame for this travesty falls largely on the broad shoulders of the pharmaceutical industry, an industry that reaps huge profits by maintaining a sick and dying society.

The Drug Lords...America's Pharmaceutical Cartel also accuses medicine of breaking anti-trust laws, of preventing other avenues of health care from fairly competing with established medicine all for the sake of money and all with the full approval and cooperation of the United States government.
