Navigating "assisted dying" by Harvey Schipper( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Carter is a bellwether decision, an adjudication on a narrow point of law whose implications are vast across society, and whose impact may not be realized for years. Coupled with Quebec's Act Respecting End-of-life Care it has sharply changed the legal landscape with respect to actively ending a person's life...having opened the Pandora's Box, the question becomes one of navigating a tolerable societal path. The author believes it is possible to achieve a workable solution based on the core principle that 'medically assisted dying' should be a very rarely employed last option, subject to transparent ongoing review, specifically as to why it was deemed necessary."

Un modelo regulador para el cancer: la evidencia y las estrategias a seguir by Carlos M Galmarini( )

1 edition published in 2001 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

+Que es el cancer? +Como podemos prevenirlo? +Como podemos minimizar su morbilidad y mortalidad?. Nuestro acercamiento a estas preguntas depende de como nosotros conceptualizamos el cancer. Por mas de cien anos, nosotros pensamos que las celulas tumorales estan irreversiblemente fuera de control, matando inevitablemente al huesped a menos de que fueran totalmente erradicadas. Desde 1970, los Estados Unidos de Norteamerica declararon la guerra contra el cancer. Como una real guerra, la posibilidad de batir el cancer dependera del poder de nuestro armamentario quimico. La premisa central de este modelo asesino es: es necesario luchar nas para matar mas, siendo la completa desaparicion del tumor la unica posibilidad de lograr la cura. Regimenes con intensificacion de dosis son usados para matar la ultima celula. Pero hoy en dia, nosotros sabemos que aunque tenemos poderosas armas, nosotros perderemos la guerra en la mayoria de nuestros pacientes. Es tiempo de parar la guerra y cambiar el paradigma del cancer. Nosotros necesitamos comprender que el cancer es un proceso dinamico, la consecuencia clinica de los sistemas regulatorios normales parcialmente fuera de control. Este proceso esta caracterizado por un desequilibrio regulatorio y este desequilibrio es potencialmente reversible. Esto significa que la cura funcional no requiere una remision completa. Ademas, las estrategias asesinas pueden ser contraproducentes. Nuevas tendencias en el diagnostico y tratamiento y sus resultados dependeran de este nuevo modelo regulatorio. El modelo regulatorio cambia la manera aunque nosotros investigamos, prevenimos y tratamos el cancer. Le atrae la proxima gran aventura en oncologia. (AU)
