Early warning : cases and ethical guidance for presymptomatic testing in genetic diseases( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents twenty-nine case studies that identify the most important ethical issues likely to emerge from new technologies of genetic testing and develops a series of guidelines based on the case studies. The authors believe that guideline formation is dependent on case analysis and that any statement of general guidelines must follow from concrete, practical discussion of specific situations. For these reasons, the guidelines presented are rooted in the case discussions and follow from the resolution of the cases. By providing the clinical origins and rationale behind each of its recommendations, the book aims to provide guidance for thinking through the ethical issues as well as a starting point for development of additional guidelines

The silicone breast implant story : communication and uncertainty by Marsha L Vanderford( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume examines a major issue in the field of women's health: breast implants. At the core of the silicone breast implant controversy is the need for people to act amid the uncertainty about the health risks involved. The attempts of patients, physicians, drug manufacturers, and the others to seek and provide both information and influence makes communication central to this issue. The study discussed in this volume reveals the interrelation of public information and private decisions and how closely media and interpersonal relationships fit. By tracing one medical issue, that of silicone breast implants, across interpersonal, organizational, public relations, and mediated forums, this work demonstrates the many ways those communication channels overlap and inform one another

"This is a valuable and fascinating book valuable because of the findings it presents, fascinating because of the way it presents them. The subject of Becoming Modern is the modernization process in six developing nations (Argentina, Chile, India, Israel, Nigeria, and Bangladesh). The method is to survey about a thousand men, aged 20-30, in each of these lands. The goal is to demonstrate that a modern man, identifiable by his attitudes toward different aspects of life, does indeed exist, and to find out what factors encourage the transformation from traditional to modern.-The New Leader Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc."--Http://external.worldbankimflib.org/uhtbin/cgisirsi/JmVHFWRv6c/JL/18260034/9 (March 2, 2011)
