Mental illness and public health care( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the involuntary commitment of the mentally ill morally proper? How can we determine proper psychiatric care in a managed health care system? And can a mental health professional violate a patient's confidentiality when they believe that patient is a threat to someone? These are the ethical, legal, and medical questions at the heart of the nineteenth annual volume of Biomedical Ethics Reviews, Mental Illness and Public Health Care. In six nonideological essays, leading bioethicists, including one with practical experience in medical administration, search for clear moral and legal guidelines for dealing with the complex issues presented when treating mentally ill patients. Regarding involuntary commitment, Theodore Benditt and Gerard Elfstrom take radically different approaches, but come to quite similar conclusions against the practice. David Malloy, Thomas Hadjistravopoulos, and Wade Robison all stress the need to incorporate ethical values into the operation of managed health care systems in order to ensure that patients will receive the most beneficial treatment. Mark Meaney confirms this approach with an actual case of a public sector managed behavioral health care corporation using the services of an ethics center to implement a system-wide corporate ethics program. Finally, Pam Sailors examines the deficiencies of, and proposes modifications to, the so-called Tarasoff laws requiring psychotherapists to break patient confidentiality under certain circumstances. Objective and readily understandable, Mental Illness and Public Health Care illuminates for the educated reader some of the key ethical issues facing mental health care professionals and provides convincing practical conclusions with real moral import

Explosive growth in the number of biological reagents available for sale to the research community has significantly complicated the process of finding a particular chemical or locating a suitable replacement for one that is no longer sold. Building on the success of their SourceBook of Enzymes, John and Dorothy Chong White have assembled an exhaustive catalog of over 26,000 commercially available proteins, peptides, and amino acids, all arranged alphabetically and by sequence for fast access, and each replete with technical details and vendor information. Compounds can be easily located by either directly searching the appropriate section by chemical name, or by consulting the general index by name, synonym, or derivative formula. Peptides with known sequences may be found alphabetically by basic sequence (no modification) or by consulting the Sequences Index. A Glossary of Abbreviations and Acronyms makes it possible to quickly find compounds by their common names. Once the desired compound is located, the selection of the right product for an application is facilitated by presenting its specific technical data in an easy-to-use format that permits comparison across sources. These valuable data cover sequence, sequence modification, chemical derivatives, preparation form, purity, composition, activity, functionality, temperature/pH optima, as well as product notes that list known applications, compound importance, and literature references. The selected compound may then be ordered by using the catalog number provided and the Reagent Suppliers Index. Comprehensive, reliable, and user-friendly, Proteins, Peptides and Amino Acids SourceBook will save busy investigators hours of wasted research time searching through product data bulletins and catalogs. By providing systematic and ample information about each compound from a global range of suppliers, this exceptional reference tool ensures finding not only the reagent most suited to your application, but also its nearest geographical supplier
