Physician-assisted suicide( )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MED This collection of essays by noted academics provides compelling arguments for and against physician-assisted suicide. As in the Report of the Committee on Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia (Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v. 26, suppl., 1996), Weir (director of the Program in Medical Ethics and Medical Humanities, Univ. of Iowa Coll. of Medicine) takes no position on physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia but emphasizes the need for further research and education. The essays presented here examine historical interpretations, ethical positions, medical practices and perspectives, considerations for vulnerable patients, and public policy, all of which influence judicial deliberations. Although they represent a range of positions, all the essays advocate a cautionary approach to policy formation. The U.S. Supreme Court is currently examining physician-assisted suicide in the case of Compassion in Dying v. State of Washington (U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, 1996 WL 94848 [Wash.]) and is expected to hand down a decision by the fall. This book is a timely and valuable contribution to the debate. Highly recommended for academic collections. Mary Hemmings, Univ. of Calgary Law Lib., Alberta-
The stored tissue issue : biomedical research, ethics, and law in the era of genomic medicine by Robert F Weir( )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genetics research with stored human tissues provides many benefits and holds much promise. Yet how this critical research is conducted sometimes raises serious ethical, legal, and social concerns, and it is difficult to balance the promise of biomedical research with our time-honored commitments to individual choice in such fundamental matters as control over personal health information and the disposition of our bodily tissues." "Weir and Olick provide a analysis of this critical phase in the era of genomic medicine. While strongly supportive of the biomedical research enterprise, they develop a critique of many common research practices with banked tissues, DNA, and genetic data. Noting numerous examples of beneficial human tissue research, they focus on problematic research practices, controversial cases, and federal and institutional policies that limit the informed choices of patients and research participants. The authors offer a series of recommendations intended to limit the risk of inadequate informed consent to research for individuals, families, and groups, and to strengthen the bonds of trust between the research enterprise and the public upon which biomedical progress depends." "This book offers information plus recommendations that will be of keen interest to geneticists, other biomedical scientists, research institutions, policy makers, students, and others. It will serve as a clarion call to move beyond traditional policies and practices toward a richer understanding of partnership between patients and research participants and the biomedical research enterprise - a partnership for the benefit of all."--Jacket

Ethical issues in death and dying by Robert F Weir( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 1986 in English and held by 1,734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of this book was published in 1977. At that time the field of thanatology, the study of death and dying, was still reasonably new and was dominated by research done by psychiatrists and social scientists. The most notable person in the field at the time was Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, who was widely credited with having brought thanatology into public view with the 1969 publication of her book On Death and Dying. Two research centers on death and dying were gaining national reputations: The Foundation of Thanatology in New York (Austin Kutscher, director), and the Center for Death Education and Research (Robert Fulton, director) at the University of Minnesota

The Beginning of human life by Fritz K Beller( Book )

Progress in biomedical science has called for an international discussion of the medical, ethical, and legal problems that confront physicians, medical researchers, infertile couples, pregnant women, and parents of premature or disabled infants. In addition, the unprecedented technological developments in obstetrical, perinatal, and neonatal medicine in recent years have indicated a need for an international forum for interdisciplinary dialogue regarding the definition of early human life, the neurological development of early human life, the value of early human life, the obligations for its protection and prolongation, and the limits to these obligations

Pop culture matters : proceedings of the 39th Conference of the Northeast Popular Culture Association by Conference of the Northeast Popular Culture Association( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We immerse ourselves daily in expressions of popular culture-YouTube videos, hip hop music, movies, adverts, greeting cards, videogames, and comics, to name just a few possibilities-and far too often we pay only scant critical attention to them. The essays in this collection redress this situation by probing a wide range of topics within the field of popular culture studies. Written in engaging and jargon-free prose, contributions critically examine various offerings in film, television, social media, music, literature, sports, and related areas. Moreover, they often pay special attention to the ways in which these pop culture artefacts intersect with issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, and ability. Providing a rich mixture of broad perspectives and intriguing case studies, the essays form a compelling mosaic of findings and viewpoints on popular culture. Exploring everything from toxic masculinity in twenty-first century television programmes to gendered greeting cards and adult colouring books, this provocative volume is essential reading for anyone interested in that fabricated and all-pervasive environment we call popular culture
