    This book is the first major work that addresses a core question in biomedical research: the question of acceptable risk. The acceptable level of risks is regulated by the requirement of proportionality in biomedical research law, which state that the risk and burden to the participant must be in proportion to potential benefits to the participant, society or science. This investigation addresses research on healthy volunteers, children, vulnerable subjects, and includes placebo controlled clinical trials.
  • Active Shooter events are becoming increasingly more common, and while there have been recommendations on how to respond since 2008, these guidelines focused on schools, government, and business settings. In January of 2014, the HPH SCC released "Active Shooter Planning and Response in a Healthcare Setting". That draft document was the first comprehensive guidance written for healthcare facilities to prevent, respond to, and recover from an active shooter event. This updated document expands upon the initial draft document to include law enforcement tactics and integrated medical and mental health response.

    "Continuous sedation until death (sometimes referred to as terminal sedation or palliative sedation) is an increasingly common practice in end-of-life care. However, it raises numerous medical, ethical, emotional and legal concerns, such as the reducing or removing of consciousness (and thus potentially causing 'subjective death'), the withholding of artificial nutrition and hydration, the proportionality of the sedation to the symptoms, its adequacy in actually relieving symptoms rather than simply giving onlookers the impression that the patient is undergoing a painless 'natural' death, and the perception that it may be functionally equivalent to euthanasia. This book brings together contributions from clinicians, ethicists, lawyers and social scientists, and discusses guidelines as well as clinical, emotional and legal aspects of the practice. The chapters shine a critical spotlight on areas of concern and on the validity of the justifications given for the practice, including in particular the doctrine of double effect"-- Provided by publisher.

    The use of the criminal law to punish those who transmit disease is a topical and controversial issue. To date, the law (and the related academic literature) has largely focused on HIV transmission. With contributions from leading practitioners and international scholars from a variety of disciplines, this volume explores the broader question of if and when it is appropriate to criminalise the transmission of contagion. The scope and application of the laws in jurisdictions such as Canada, the United Kingdom and Norway are considered, historical comparisons are examined, and options for the further development of the law are proposed.

    This book explores a rapidly growing area of discussion in the health care industry, disruptive behavior in medical providers. The presence of disruptive behavior adversely impacts the providers of all disciplines: paraprofessional personnel, nurses, physicians and administrators. But more importantly, there may be a greater detrimental effect on quality and patient safety. This has led to mandated regulatory requirements that assist healthcare institutions in developing programs to address the problem. The book presents an evidence-based analysis of the disruptive provider behavior that defines the incidence, demographics, and profile of the behavior; discusses the specialties and work locations predisposed, as well as the interface with residents and nurses. The importance of patient safety, economic, and legal issues are addressed by a comprehensive, management strategy to effect positive, sustainable culture change in healthcare.

    In the years since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, or colloquially Obamacare), most of the discussion about it has been political. But as the politics fade and the law's many complex provisions take effect, a much more interesting question begins to emerge: How will the law affect the American healthcare regime in the coming years and decades? This book brings together fourteen leading scholars from the fields of law, economics, medicine, and public health to answer that question. Taking discipline-specific views, they offer their analyses and predictions for the future of healthcare reform. By turns thought-provoking, counterintuitive, and even contentious, the essays together cover the landscape of positions on the PPACA's prospects. Some see efficiency growth and moderating prices; others fear a strangling bureaucracy and spiraling costs. The result is a deeply informed, richly substantive discussion that will trouble settled positions and lay the groundwork for analysis and assessment as the law's effects become clear. -- from dust jacket.

    This volume assembles an interdisciplinary team of leading academics, industry figures, policymakers and NGOs to consider the legal, ethical and social issues that are raised by innovations in nanoscience and nanotechnology. By bringing together international experts from a diverse range of fields this volume addresses the implications and impact that nanotechnology has on society. Through the exploration of six key themes the contributors analyse both the impact of nanotechnology and the emergence of the concept of nanoethics. Each section includes authors from both sides of the political and scientific divide incorporating both positive and negative perspectives on nanotechnology, as well as including discussions of associated concepts such as converging technologies. The result provides for the widest and most balanced discussion of these issues to date.

    The recent years have seen a tremendous growth in research and developments in science and technology, and an emphasis in obtaining Intellectual Property (IP) protection for one's innovations. Information pertaining to IP for science and technology is siloed into many diverse sources and consists of laws, regulations, patents, court litigations, scientific publications, and more. Although a great deal of legal and scientific information is now available online, the scattered distribution of the information, combined with the enormous sizes and complexities, makes any attempt to gather relevant IP-related information on a specific technology a daunting task. In this thesis, we develop a knowledge-based software framework to facilitate retrieval of patents and related information across multiple diverse and uncoordinated information sources in the US patent system. The document corpus covers issued US patents, court litigations, scientific publications, and patent file wrappers in the biomedical technology domain. A document repository is to be populated with issued US patents, court cases, scientific publications, and file wrappers in XML format. Parsers are developed to automatically download documents from the information sources. Additionally, the parser also extracts metadata and textual content from the downloaded documents and populates the XML repository. A text index is built over the repository using Apache Lucene, to facilitate search and retrieval of documents. Based on the document repository, the underlying methodology to search across multiple information sources in the patent system is discussed. The methodology is divided into two major parts. First, we develop a knowledge-based query expansion methodology to tackle domain terminological inconsistencies in the documents. Relevant knowledge is retrieved from external sources such as domain ontologies. Since our goal is to retrieve a collection of relevant documents across multiple sources, we develop a patent system ontology to provide interoperability between the different types of documents and to facilitate information integration. We discuss the Information Retrieval (IR) framework which combines the knowledge-based query expansion methodology with the patent system ontology to provide a multi-domain search methodology. A visualization tool based on term co-occurrence is developed that can be used to browse the document repository through class hierarchies of domain ontologies. The knowledge-based query expansion methodology is evaluated through formal measures such as precision and recall. A simple term-based search is used as a baseline reference for comparison. Additionally, the results from related works are also used for comparison. A series of common questions asked during patent prior art searches and infringement analysis are generated to evaluate the patent system ontology. A summary of the results and analysis is provided.

    Technologies are developing faster and their impact is bigger than ever before. Synergies emerge between formerly independent technologies that trigger accelerated and unpredicted effects. Alongside these technological advances new ethical ideas and powerful moral ideologies have appeared which force us to consider the application of these emerging technologies. In attempting to navigate utopian and dystopian visions of the future, it becomes clear that technological progress and its moral quandaries call for new policies and legislative responses. Against this backdrop this new book series from Springer provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussion and normative analysis of emerging technologies that are likely to have a significant impact on the environment, society and/or humanity. These will include, but be no means limited to nanotechnology, neurotechnology, information technology, biotechnology, weapons and security technology, energy technology, and space-based technologies.

  • This report highlights three areas where political agendas have intruded into exam rooms in harmful ways: the clinical management of toxic exposures, reproductive health, and gun safety. The impact of these laws could not be more serious: Health care providers who violate them may be subject to professional sanctions, civil liability, or even criminal penalties.

    "In the early days of the United States, the special needs of juveniles were rarely considered as forefathers were constructing laws, policies, and legal procedures. In the early 1900s, the legal system began to adapt to account for the special needs of juveniles. Around the same time, psychological study revealed that juveniles' decision-making, behavior, and cognitions are different from those of adults. In the decades since, there has been much debate as to how the legal system does or should handle juveniles who come into contact with the legal system as offenders. Similarly, laws and procedures have been enacted to address the health and wellbeing of children whose parents are divorcing or are in prison. Further, legal actions have been adopted to protect the health of children and society in general. Research in this domain often involves studying legal actors, parents, community members, and juveniles. Such research often poses ethical, legal, and clinical dilemmas. The topics selected for this book are among the most current and hotly-debated topics in psychology and law as pertaining to children. Each chapter offers an empirical and/or legal analysis of a recent law, policy, and other legal action that affects children's wellbeing. In doing so, the book addresses how civil and criminal law has evolved to protect, and sometimes inadvertently neglect or harm, the wellbeing and development of children."

    Demands for the protection of social rights, and health rights in particular, have become a distinctive feature of judicialization in Latin American countries, including Argentina. Although a growing number of studies have begun to document the new relationship between the courts and health rights generated after almost two decades of litigation, little is yet empirically known about the versatile struggles undertaken in domestic courts and their consequences beyond the judgments. More specifically, given the scarcity of domestic empirical explorations, much remains to be discovered about legal mobilization experiences and courts' roles in the adjudication of conflicts regarding the intersection of health policies and rights. This dissertation takes a step toward filling that gap by exploring a set of conceptual, theoretical, and methodological questions that are critical to advancing current debates on health and the role of courts in bringing justice and expanding the rule of law in Argentina. With that aim in mind, this dissertation proceeds in two stages. First, it offers a basic assessment of the context and magnitude of the judicialization of health in the country, relying on multiple secondary sources and descriptive statistics obtained from databases of court decisions and dockets generated for this dissertation. Second, to complement the broader picture, the project proposes a qualitative study of strands of health rights litigation, offering a process-based observation of diverse patterns of judicialization while helping identify and compare the broader impacts of courts' roles in adjudicating health rights demands. Through these narrative studies, this dissertation tells the story of how once-dormant health rights clauses have come to life through the work of litigants, judges, and policy makers. It also shows how, in the process of unleashing health rights, courts have played contradictory roles throughout the nonlinear trajectories of different patterns of judicialization that can be located along a spectrum in which an atomistic and routinized style of judicialization is at one extreme, a bureaucratizing form of judicialization is in the middle, and a cooperative style of judicialization is at the other extreme. Ultimately, throughout these rich and variegated experiences of judicialization, courts' adjudication of right-to-health claims has sometimes reinforced ineffective or unequal arrangements, while at other times exhibiting potentially transformative capacities.

    In this dissertation I provide an empirically based account of the trajectory of right-to-health litigation in Colombia during the past twenty years (1991-2012). Focusing on several critical junctures of this trajectory and drawing from the results of multi sited fieldwork, I reconstruct how a set of stakeholders (policymakers, judges, litigants, activists and pharmaceutical companies) spurred the surge of right-to-health litigation in Colombia, which according to recent estimates is the highest among middle-income countries. Additionally, I explore how a set of structural judicial remedies handed down by the Colombian Constitutional Court in 2008--ruling T-760/08--addressed the institutional determinants of the surge of right-to-health litigation and nudged policymakers in the direction of health-care reform.
