Bioethics and the law by Janet L Dolgin( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2019 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bioethics and the Law, Second Edition connects broad public healthcare issues with the concerns of the individual, and draws clear distinctions between policy, law, and ethical considerations. Offering more than just landmark cases, Dolgin and Shepherd present a revealing survey of the full range of contemporary healthcare issues, along with the various conflicts and confluences that surround them."--BOOK JACKET

Aging Populations and Public Health Ethics by Lois L Shepherd( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This chapter examines three primary public health goals relating to elderly populations: promoting healthy aging (including aging in place), reducing health inequities, and extending life spans. It then considers the ways in which programs or policies to advance population-wide goals are challenged to meet ethical responsibilities to protect older adults from harm, respect their autonomy and dignity, and treat them fairly or justly when resources are limited. Lastly, by looking at a difficult situation commonly faced in hospitals -- the discharge of an elderly patient who may not be able to safely return home -- the chapter introduces questions about the relationship between public health ethics, clinical ethics, and social justice, and about the future role of public health as a field of inquiry and action

If that ever happens to me making life and death decisions after Terri Schiavo by Lois L Shepherd( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Every day, thousands of people quietly face decisions as agonizing as those made famous in the Terri Schiavo case. Throughout that controversy, all kinds of people--politicians, religious leaders, legal and medical experts--made emphatic statements about the facts and offered even more certain opinions about what should be done. To many, courts were either ordering Terri's death by starvation or vindicating her constitutional rights. Both sides called for simple answers. If That Ever Happens to Me details why these simple answers were not right for Terri Schiavo and why they are not rig
Health-related quality of life parameters as prognostic factors in a nonmestatic breast cancer population: an international multicenter study( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Purpose The purpose of this research was to evaluate whether baseline health-related quality of life (HRQOL) parameters are prognostic factors for survival in locally advanced breast cancer patients. Although the literature highlights the important role of HRQOL parameters in predicting survival in advanced metastatic disease, little evidence exists for earlier stages. Patients and Methods The overall sample consisted of 448 patients randomfy assigned to receive cyclophosphamide, epirubicin, and fluorouracil versus epirubicin, cyclophosphamide, and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor. Patients were enrolled in 12 countries. HRQOL baseline scores were assessed using the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Ouality of Life Questionnaire C30. The Cox proportional hazards regression model was used for both univariate and multivariate analyses of survival. In addition, abootstrap resampling technique was used to assess the stability of the outcomes. Bootstrap results were then applied for model averaging purposes as a means to account for the observed model selection uncertainty. Results The final multivariate model retained inflammatory breast cancer (T4d) as the onlyfactor predicting overall survival (OS) with a hazard ratio of 1.375 (95% CI, 1.027 to 1.840; P = .03). The presence of inflammatory breast cancer lowers the median survival time from 6.6 to 4.2 years (36% reduction). None ofthe preselected HRQOL variables were prognostic for OS or disease-free survival, in either the univariate or multivariate analysis. Conclusion Our findings suggest that baseline HRQOL parameters have no prognostic value in a nonmetastatic breast cancer population
Defining Breast Cancer Intrinsic Subtypes by Quantitative Receptor Expression( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose: To determine intrinsic breast cancer subtypes represented within categories defined by quantitative hormone receptor (HR) and HER2 expression. Methods: We merged 1, 557 cases from three randomized phase III trials into a single data set. These breast tumors were centrally reviewed in each trial for quantitative ER, PR, and HER2 expression by immunohistochemistry (IHC) stain and by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR), with intrinsic subtyping by research-based PAM50 RT-qPCR assay. Results: Among 283 HER2-negative tumors with <1% HR expression by IHC, 207 (73%) were basal-like; other subtypes, particularly HER2-enriched (48, 17%), were present. Among the 1, 298 HER2-negative tumors, borderline HR (1%-9% staining) was uncommon (n = 39), and these tumors were heterogeneous: 17 (44%) luminal A/B, 12 (31%) HER2-enriched, and only 7 (18%) basal-like. Including them in the definition of triple-negative breast cancer significantly diminished enrichment for basal-like cancer (p <.05). Among 106 HER2-positive tumors with <1% HR expression by IHC, the HER2-enriched subtype was the most frequent (87, 82%), whereas among 127 HER2-positive tumors with strong HR (>10%) expression, only 69 (54%) were HER2-enriched and 55 (43%) were luminal (39 luminal B, 16 luminal A). Quantitative HR expression by RT-qPCR gave similar results. Regardless of methodology, basal-like cases seldom expressed ER/ ESR1 or PR/ PGR and were associated with the lowest expression level of HER2/ ERBB2 relative to other subtypes. Conclusion: Significant discordance remains between clinical assay-defined subsets and intrinsic subtype. For identifying basal-like breast cancer, the optimal HR IHC cut point was <1%, matching the American Society of Clinical Oncology and College of American Pathologists guidelines. Tumors with borderline HR staining are molecularly diverse and may require additional assays to clarify underlying biology. Abstract : This study compared centrally performed clinical assays of quantitative ER, PR, and HER2 expression with molecular intrinsic subtypes identified by an open-source, centroid-based, subtype predictor in tumors collected across three phase III randomized clinical trials and determined the molecular populations within strongly hormone receptor-positive tumors, borderline tumors, and triple-negative tumors
Are we misunderstanding advance directives in end-of-life care?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Leslie J. Blackhall, M.D., M.T.S. (Associate Professor of Internal Medicine and Medical Education, Division of General Medicine, Geriatrics and Palliative Care, University of Virginia School of Medicine) outlined a brief history of advance care directives and how CPR practice and code teams evolved in United States hospitals. Dr. Blackhall also addressed legal and ethical questions concerning extraordinary treatment, patient autonomy rights, patient capacity, and ongoing legal controversies. Lois L. Shepherd, J.D. (Associate Professor of Public Health Sciences, Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities, and Professor of Law, University of Virginia) addressed the trends and trajectories she has observed regarding advance care planning which includes: patient autonomy, understanding advance directives versus wills, appointing agents or surrogates for advance directives, physician orders for advance directives, etc
