Science, evolution, and creationism by National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a group of experts assembled by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine explain the fundamental methods of science, document the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, and evaluate the alternative perspectives offered by advocates of various kinds of creationism, including "intelligent design." Science, Evolution, and Creationism explores the many fascinating inquiries being pursued that put the science of evolution to work in preventing and treating human disease, developing new agricultural products, and fostering industrial innovations. The book also presents the scientific and legal reasons for not teaching creationist ideas in public school science classes." "Mindful of school board battles and recent court decisions, Science, Evolution, and Creationism shows that science and religion should be viewed as different ways of understanding the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other and that the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policymakers, and parents who seek to understand the basis of evolutionary science, this publication will be an essential resource."--Jacket

In her own right : the Institute of Medicine's guide to women's health issues by Beryl Lieff Benderly( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Use of laboratory animals in biomedical and behavioral research by National Research Council( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of animals in scientific research has been a controversial issue for over a hundred years. Research with animals has saved human lives, lessened human suffering, and advanced scientific understanding, yet that same research can cause pain and distress for the animals involved and may result in their death. It is hardly surprising that animal experimentation raises complex questions and generates strong emotions. The recognition that animals are essential in scientific research is critical in making decisions about their use, but these decisions are also made in the broad context of social and ethical values. This report addresses these issues and examines how and why animals are used in research and how society oversees that research. Specifically discussed in this volume are animal use patterns, benefits from the use of animals, alternative research methods, and the use of pound animals. The appendixes include the 1896 statement on this subject by the National Academy of Sciences. Commission and committee members are listed in this report. (Cw)
Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is meant to assist mentors and advisors in understanding how they might help students identify and respond to the challenges of becoming scientists or engineers. The guide--intended for faculty members, teachers, administrators, and others who advise and mentor students of science and engineering--attempts to summarize features that are common to successful mentoring relationships. The goal is to encourage mentoring habits that are in the best interests of both parties in the relationship. The chapters define mentoring, explain the different roles the mentor plays with students (faculty advisor, career advisor, skills consultant, role model), makes recommendations for improving the quality of mentoring, and provides resources. Within each chapter, the text contains steps to improve mentoring, examples of poor and good mentoring, the context of mentoring, a sample of nonacademic careers in science and engineering, and chapter summaries. (Contains 50 references.) (Ask)

Scientific criteria to ensure safe food by Committee on the Review of the Use of Scientific Criteria and Performance Standards for Safe Food( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Food safety regulators face a daunting task. They must craft food safety performance standards and systems that use the best available science to protect the health of the American public--while working within an increasingly antiquated and fragmented regulatory framework. Current food safety standards have been set over a period of years and under diverse circumstances, based on a host of scientific, legal, and practical constraints. "Scientific Criteria to Ensure Safe Food lays the groundwork for creating new regulations that are consistent, reliable, and ensure the best protection for the health of American consumers. This timely, compelling, and invaluable book addresses the biggest concerns in food safety--including microbial disease surveillance plans, tools for establishing food safety criteria, and issues specific to meat, dairy, poultry, seafood, and produce. It provides a candid analysis of the problems with the current system, and outlines the major components of the task at hand: creating workable, streamlined food safety standards and practices

Confronting commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors in the United States by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors in the United States are frequently overlooked, misunderstood, and unaddressed domestic problems. In the past decade, they have received increasing attention from advocates, the media, academics, and policy makers. However, much of this attention has focused internationally. This international focus has overshadowed the reality that commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors also occur every day within the United States. Commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors not only are illegal activities, but also result in immediate and long-term physical, mental, and emotional harm to victims and survivors. A nation that is unaware of these problems or disengaged from solving them unwittingly contributes to the ongoing abuse of minors and all but ensures that these crimes will remain marginalized and misunderstood. The 2013 Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council report Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States increases awareness and understanding of the crucial problem of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors in the United States. By examining emerging strategies for preventing and identifying these crimes, for assisting and supporting victims and survivors, and for addressing exploiters and traffickers, that report offers a path forward through recommendations designed to increase awareness and understanding and to support efforts to prevent, identify, and respond to these crimes. Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States: A Guide for Providers of Victim and Support Services offers a more concise and focused perspective on the problem and emerging solutions for providers of victim and support services for children and adolescents. These service providers include policy makers, leaders, practitioners, organizations, and programs at the local, state, and federal levels. This guide will be a valuable resource for them, and for child welfare and child protective services, other agencies and programs within the state and federal governments (e.g., the U.S. Department of Justice's Office for Victims of Crime), and nongovernmental organizations
Countering bioterrorism : the role of science and technology by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11 and the release of anthrax spores revealed enormous vulnerabilities in the U.S. public-health infrastructure and suggested similar vulnerabilities in the agricultural infrastructure as well. The traditional public health response--surveillance (intelligence), prevention, detection, response, recovery, and attribution--is the paradigm for the national response not only to all forms of terrorism but also to emerging infectious diseases. Thus, investments in research on bioterrorism will have enormous potential for application in the detection, prevention, and treatment of emerging infectious diseases that also are unpredictable and against which we must be prepared. The deciphering of the human genome sequence and the complete elucidation of numerous pathogen genomes, our rapidly increasing understanding of the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis and of immune responses, and new strategies for designing drugs and vaccines all offer unprecedented opportunities to use science to counter bioterrorist threats. But these same developments also allow science to be misused to create new agents of mass destruction. Hence the effort to confront bioterrorism must be a global one. Countering Bioterrorism makes the following recommendations: 1. All agencies with responsibility for homeland security should work together to establish stronger and more meaningful working ties between the intelligence, S&T, and public health communities; 2. Federal agencies should work cooperatively and in collaboration with industry to develop and evaluate rapid, sensitive, and specific early-detection technologies; 3. Create a global network for detection and surveillance, making use of computerized methods for real-time reporting and analysis to rapidly detect new patterns of disease locally, nationally, and ultimately-- internationally. The use of high-throughput methodologies that are being increasingly utilized in modern biological research should be an important component of this expanded and highly automated surveillance strategy; 4. Use knowledge of complex biological patterns and high-throughput laboratory automation to classify and diagnose infections in patients in primary care settings; 5. USDA should create an agency for control and prevention of plant disease. This agency should have the capabilities necessary to deal effectively with biothreats

Exploring complementary and alternative medicine by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complementary and alternative medical (CAM) therapies encompass a broad spectrum of practices and beliefs. The NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) defines CAM as "healthcare practices outside the realm of conventional medicine, which are yet to be validated using scientific methods." Integrative medicine refers to ongoing efforts to combine the best of conventional and evidence-based complementary therapies while emphasizing the primacy of the patient-provider relationship and the importance of patient participation in health promotion, disease prevention, and medical management. The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) defines dietary supplements as products (other than tobacco) intended to supplement the diet that bear or contain one or more of the following dietary ingredients: a vitamin, mineral, amino acid, herb or other botanical; or a dietary substance for use to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake; or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combination of any ingredient described above; and intended for ingestion in the form of a capsule, powder, soft gel, or gelcap, and not represented as a conventional food or as a sole item of a meal or the diet
Improving palliative care : we can take better care of people with cancer( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a society, we have made amazing gains in being able to detect and treat cancer. Even so, about half the people who are told by their doctors that they have cancer will die within a few years. This means that every year about one million people find out that they have cancer and are treated, and about one-half million people die of cancer nationwide. So far, most cancer research and treatment has focused on trying to cure cancer. There hasn't been much attention paid to other important issues, such as pain control and taking care of other troubling symptoms. Now more and more people are aware that there are cancer care needs beyond just trying to cure it. Attention is now being paid to helping people with cancer cope better with the problems that may arise when people are being treated or as they approach death
