Hospice Voices: Lessons for Living at the End of Life Nuevo esta semana

Hits: 1
Valoración: 0.00 (0 votos)

Categoría: a) Fundamentación de la bioética
Autor: Eric Lindner
Edición: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2015
ISBN: 978-1442247895
Precio: 12,71€


As a part-time hospice volunteer, Eric Lindner provides companion care to dying strangers. They’re chatterboxes and recluses, religious and irreligious, battered by cancer, congestive heart failure, Alzheimer’s, old age. Some cling to life amazingly. Most pass as they expected.
In telling his story, Lindner reveals the thoughts, fears, and lessons of those living the ends of their lives in the care of others, having exhausted their medical options or ceased treatment for their illnesses. In each chapter, Lindner not only reveals the lessons of lives explored in their final days, but zeroes in on how working for hospice can be incredibly fulfilling.



La guarda de hecho de las personas mayores Nuevo esta semana

Autor: Ascensión Leciñena Ibarra
Edición: Civitas, 2015
ISBN:9788447049646
Precio: 32€


En el marco de la realidad asistencial actual la importancia de la guarda de hecho como figura tuitiva de las personas mayores es un hecho incuestionable. Se erige en una clara alternativa a la modificación judicial de la capacidad, presentándose como una medida de apoyo, capaz de satisfacer la exigencia de la Convención de los Derechos de las Personas con Discapacidad.
En un contexto de creciente aumento de la esperanza de vida y de pérdida progresiva de la autonomía personal de nuestros mayores, la obra aborda el estudio de la guarda de hecho en el contexto de la realidad asistencial actual: tanto el examen de la figura tal como viene perfilada en el CC como la utilización judicial del potencial de la misma como instrumento de protección de personas mayores, en un claro intento de aproximarla a la condición de cargo tutelar.

Se busca familia para un niño: perspectivas psico-jurídicas sobre la adoptabilidad Nuevo esta semana

Edición: Dykinson, 2015
ISBN:9788490852651
Precio:16€


Entender la adopción desde la necesidad de todo niño de encontrar una familia, frente al deseo de las familias de conseguir hijos, supone poner el inicio y fundamento de la adopción en el concepto de adoptabilidad, tal y como intenta hacer en este libro.
Para ello, se parte del concepto de huérfano, francamente anticuado, en desuso y no muy bien recibido en el mundo de la adopción, para matizarlo y completarlo hasta llegar al concepto moderno de menor adoptable.
En la trayectoria del texto se habla de los niños adoptables como aquellos cuyos vínculos con la familia de origen están legalmente listos para romperse (“huérfanos jurídicos”), que no deberían ser niños cuyas familias quieren y pueden, o podrían, cuidar (“falsos huérfanos”), especialmente mientras existen, al mismo tiempo, niños adoptables que no encuentran familia (“huérfanos en espera”), o niños cuya adoptabilidad sería necesaria pero nunca es declarada (“huérfanos para siempre”). Se estudian especialmente los casos de kafala, entre aquellos respecto de los cuales la declaración de adoptabilidad en el país de origen no es posible.
Finalmente se trata el caso de los niños que son huérfanos jurídicos pero no están listos para vincularse a una nueva familia (“huérfanos por dentro”), tratando de evitar la ruptura de la adopción y, con ella, el retorno de los niños al sistema de protección de menores (“huérfanos de nuevo”).
Con este juego de palabras este libro aborda la enorme complejidad de la adoptabilidad, como punto de partida y medida de la legalidad y legitimidad de todo proceso de adopción, y de todo buen sistema de protección de menores.

Editor: Catriona Mackenzie, Wendy Rogers, Susan Dodds
Edición: Oxford University Press, 2013
ISBN: ASIN: B00HFPV4KS
Precio: 23,60€


The aim of this volume is to open up reflection on the nature of vulnerability, the responsibilities owed to the vulnerable, who bears these responsibilities, and how they are best fulfilled. In canvassing responses to these questions, the contributors engage with a range of ethical traditions and with issues in contemporary political philosophy and bioethics. Some essays in the volume explore the connections between vulnerability, autonomy, dignity, and justice. Other essays engage with a feminist ethics of care to articulate the relationship between vulnerability, dependence, and care. These theoretical approaches are complemented by detailed examination of vulnerability in specific contexts, including disability; responsibilities to children; intergenerational justice; and care of the elderly. The essays thus address fundamental questions concerning our moral duties to each other as individuals and as citizens. Contributing significantly to the development of an ethics of vulnerability, this volume opens up promising avenues for future research in feminist philosophy, moral and political philosophy, and bioethics.

Precio: 47,45€


The Joint Commission (TJC) accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health care organizations in the United States, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home care agencies. Each organization must have a standing health care ethics committee to maintain its status. These interdisciplinary committees are composed of physicians, nurses, attorneys, ethicists, administrators, and interested citizens. Their main function is to review and provide resolutions for specific, individual patient care problems. Many of these committees are well meaning but may lack the information, experience, skills, and formal background in bioethics needed to adequately negotiate the complex ethical issues that arise in clinical and organizational settings.

Handbook for Health Care Ethics Committees was the first book of its kind to address the myriad responsibilities faced by ethics committees, including education, case consultation, and policy development. Adopting an accessible tone and using a case study format, the authors explore serious issues involving informed consent and refusal, decision making and decisional capacity, truth telling, the end of life, palliative care, justice in and access to health care services, and organizational ethics.

No hay seguridad jurídica preventiva sin documentos notariales perfectos, los registros públicos son eficaces en la medida que los documentos que publican tengan la mayor perfección posible, si ello no ocurre, los registros podrán estar publicando realidades inexactas, con el gran daño que ello causa a la persona y a la sociedad.



Government paternalism: nanny state or helpful friend? Nuevo esta semana

Autor: Julian Le Grand, Bill New
Edición: Princeton University Press, 2015
ISBN: 9780691164373
Precio: 30,36€


Should governments save people from themselves? Do governments have the right to influence citizens' behavior related to smoking tobacco, eating too much, not saving enough, drinking alcohol, or taking marijuana-or does this create a nanny state, leading to infantilization, demotivation, and breaches in individual autonomy? Looking at examples from both sides of the Atlantic and around the world, Government Paternalism examines the justifications for, and the prevalence of, government involvement and considers when intervention might or might not be acceptable. Building on developments in philosophy, behavioral economics, and psychology, Julian Le Grand and Bill New explore the roles, boundaries, and responsibilities of the government and its citizens. Le Grand and New investigate specific policy areas, including smoking, saving for pensions, and assisted suicide. They discuss legal restrictions on risky behavior, taxation of harmful activities, and subsidies for beneficial activities. And they pay particular attention to "nudge" or libertarian paternalist proposals that try to change the context in which individuals make decisions so that they make the right ones. Le Grand and New argue that individuals often display "reasoning failure": an inability to achieve the ends that they set themselves. Such instances are ideal for paternalistic interventions-for though such interventions might impinge on autonomy, the impact can be outweighed by an improvement in well-being. Government Paternalism rigorously considers whether the state should guide citizen decision making in positive ways and if so, how this should be achieved.

Precio: 22,44€


People with dementia need increasingly specialised support as they approach the end of life, and so too do their families and the professionals working with them. This book describes not only what can be done to ensure maximum quality of life for those in the final stages of the illness, but also how best to support those involved in caring for them. Emphasising the importance of being attuned to the experiences and needs of the person with dementia, the authors explain why and how they should be included in decisions relating to their end of life care. Practical strategies for ensuring physical and emotional wellbeing are provided, drawing on useful examples from practice and providing solutions to potential challenges that carers and family members will face. Dilemmas surrounding end of life care are explored in detail, including the moral dilemma of medical intervention, and the authors suggest ways of supporting family members through the process in terms of providing information, helping them adjust to change and loss, and involving them in their relative's care, and at how care staff can be supported through appropriate education and training, team building and information-giving. This is an essential resource for anyone who wishes to provide compassionate, person-centred care for a person with dementia as they approach the end of life, including care staff, nurses, social workers and related professionals.

Este libro aborda la sempiterna y problemática cuestión del mal, pero lo hace de un modo novedoso: repasa anteriores argumentos al respecto para tratar de dar cuenta de ese tipo de mal que se concreta en la injusticia, no como un hecho conclusivo sino como un proceso de ideación. Un aspecto que por lo general ha sido desatendido en este tipo escritos en los que antes parece que se prefiera dar cabida a nociones como la de desgracia y, con ello, al consentimiento de ciertos males que no tienen carácter de inevitabilidad.

Precio: 23€


El tráfico de órganos y tejidos humanos es una triste realidad en nuestros días. La pobreza extrema en países menos desarrollados, unida a la escasez de órganos humanos para trasplante, a la corrupción y a los vacíos legales en esta materia, han abonado la existencia de un comercio ilícito de órganos humanos, fundamentalmente a través de las "donaciones" entre personas vivas, pero también de la venta de órganos y tejidos de cadáveres.

El presente trabajo ofrece un análisis sobre la prohibición de dicho comercio, en el que se consideran no solo los textos internacionales en los que esta se funda, sino también las últimas posiciones en favor de la legalización de dicho comercio. El trabajo culmina con el estudio del nuevo delito sobre tráfico de órganos humanos y comercio de trasplantes del arto 156 bis CP, en el que, partiendo de la normativa española de trasplantes, se abordan los problemas de bien jurídico, del consentimiento del donante, de la sanción del receptor del órgano o de su relación con los delitos de lesiones o de trata de seres humanos. Todo ello sin olvidar la perspectiva de Derecho Comparado, que ofrece diversas soluciones legislativas en la tutela penal en esta materia.

Según la Biblia, hace unos cuantos miles de años la serpiente prometió a nuestros padres que, si comían una fruta, serían como dioses, conocedores del bien y del mal. La historia, ya sabemos, acabó en desgracia, pero las ganas de saber y la curiosidad por lo que nos rodea siguen tentándonos. Todavía hoy, abriendo ese libro, uno puede caer en preguntarse... ¿esto del gigante Goliat podría haber sido verdad? ¿Y el diluvio universal? ¿Y las siete plagas? O, ya puestos, ¿qué tomó san Juan antes de escribir el Apocalipsis?
Así, leyendo la Biblia con microscopio, el genetista y biólogo Steve Jones aplica la ciencia moderna a los relatos bíblicos, y el resultado es un libro profundamente esclarecedor, lleno de curiosidades humanas y científicas. Una obra que no enfrenta la ciencia y la creencia, sino que las sitúa como modos distintos de analizar la realidad, el pasado, lo que nos rodea, lo que sabemos y lo que no sabemos.



Biomedicine and Beatitude: An Introduction to Catholic Bioethics Nuevo esta semana

Edición: The Catholic University of America Press, 2011
ISBN: 978-0813218823
Precio:22,46€


How are the patient, the physician, the nurse, and the scientist called to grow in holiness in their particular vocations? This introductory text, written from within the Catholic moral tradition, narrates a bioethics that emphasizes the pursuit of beatitude in the lives of those who are confronted by moral questions raised by biomedicine and the other life sciences.

The Catholic moral vision that informs this volume is rooted in the moral life described by the Lord Jesus Christ in his Sermon on the Mount. As Pope John Paul II taught in his moral encyclical, Veritatis splendor, we imitate Christ by seeking, with God's grace, to perfect ourselves through our actions and the virtues they engender. In this way, Catholic bioethics differs from other contemporary approaches to bioethics that focus on either the outcomes of human acts or the procedures that protect the autonomy of the human agent.

Besides ethical questions raised at the beginning and the end of life, Nicanor Austriaco, O.P., discusses the ethics of the clinical encounter, human procreation, organ donation and transplantation, and biomedical research. Finally, the text discusses the realities faced by citizens of faith living in a free and democratic society that is at the same time postmodern, secular, and liberal.

Precio:12€


Hans Jonas es un exegeta de la filosofía. En efecto, la ontología acuñada por lonas no es únicamente el resultado de una apreciación y crítica de la filosofía de Heidegger, sino un análisis y una crítica de la tradición de la filosofía occidental, considerando algunos hitos fundamentales en la historia del pensamiento: Aristóteles, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant, Nietzsche, entre otros. La originalidad y actualidad de la ontología de Jonas radica en que él estudió al ser no sólo como ente, sino también como ser viviente que tiene un valor ético tal que debe ser objeto de responsabilidad por parte del ser humano. Así, pues, la tradición ética de la filosofía occidental deja de ser antropocéntrica y sitúa al ser humano junto a los otros seres vivos en la naturaleza como un ser responsable de la vida en el mundo, dado el poder que ha adquirido en la actual civilización tecnológica.

Precio: 28,45€


In 2001, scientists were finally able to determine the full human genome sequence, and with the discovery began a genomic voyage back in time. Since then, we have sequenced the full genomes of many of mankind's primitive relatives at a remarkable rate. The genome of the common chimpanzee (2005), macaque (2007) and orangutan (2011) have already been identified, and the identification of other primate genomes is underway, including the bonobo, gorilla, and baboon. Researchers are beginning to unravel our full genetic history, comparing it with closely related species to answer age old questions about how and when we evolved. For the first time, we are finding our own ancestors in our genome and are thereby gleaning new information about our evolutionary past. In Ancestors in Our Genome, geneticist Eugene Harris presents us with the complete and up-to-date account of the evolution of the human genome. Written from the perspective of population genetics, the book traces human origins back to their earliest source among our earliest human ancestors, and explains some of the challenging questions that scientists are currently attempting to answer. For example, what does the high level of discordance among the gene trees of humans and the African great apes tell us about our respective separations from our common ancestor? Was this process fast or slow, and when and why did it occur? How can we explain the fact that evolutionary relationships among copies of specific genes from individual primate species can differ from the evolutionary relationships of the species themselves? Harris draws upon extensive experience researching primate evolution in order to deliver a lively and thorough history of human evolution. Ancestors in Our Genome is the most complete discussion of our current understanding of the human genome available.

The amount of published literature can be overwhelming for scientists and researchers moving from a broad disciplinary research area to a more specialized one, particularly in fields that use information from more than one discipline. Without a focused inquiry, the researcher may find too little information or may be overcome by too much. Striking the correct balance of information is the focus of Literature Search Strategies for Interdisciplinary Research.

This useful reference tool studies diverse interdisciplinary areas revealing the general and individual qualities that dictate the strategies of successful searches. Beginning with a bare-bones search strategy for finding primary research in interdisciplinary areas, the book then goes on to provide hints for research in specific disciplines, as the unique traits of the individual fields compound the difficulties in interdisciplinary research. Individual chapters, written by experts in that particular area, address ten research fields in depth, disclosing the common qualities of interdisciplinary research. The study areas covered include Paleontology, Crystallography, Quaternary Research, Human Factors Engineering, Nanotechnology, Atmospheric Chemistry, Bioethics, Computational Biology, Engineering Entrepreneurship, and Machine Learning. For scientists and engineers new to their fields, as well as librarians whose responsibilities include collecting library materials for newly-emerging interdisciplinary research areas, Linda Ackerson's guide provides all that is needed to develop a successful search strategy.

Traditionally, neuroscience has considered the nervous system as an isolated entity and largely ignored influences of the social environments in which humans and many animal species live. However, there is mounting evidence that the social environment affects behavior across species, from microbes to humans.
This volume brings together scholars who work with animal and human models of social behavior to discuss the challenges and opportunities in this interdisciplinary academic field.

Despite the growing use of genomic applications in clinical practice, health professional knowledge about genomic information and confidence in using it have not kept pace. Genetic influences on health are ubiquitous and multifaceted, which can make it difficult to use this information in a typical health care visit. Many health care providers do not have either the knowledge or the tools they need in order to apply genetic information in their day-to-day practices. This lack of support is contributing to a substantial delay in the translation of genetic research findings, when appropriate, into improvement in patient outcomes within the health care system. The objective of the workshop was to examine the potential and the challenges of providing genetics education, to review promising and innovative approaches to providing education to both graduate health professional students and practicing health professionals, and to identify potential next steps for achieving effective genetics education.



Human Subjects Research Regulation: Perspectives on the Future

The current framework for the regulation of human subjects research emerged largely in reaction to the horrors of Nazi human experimentation, revealed at the Nuremburg trials, and the Tuskegee syphilis study, conducted by U.S. government researchers from 1932 to 1972. This framework, combining elements of paternalism with efforts to preserve individual autonomy, has remained fundamentally unchanged for decades. Yet, as this book documents, it has significant flaws—including its potential to burden important research, overprotect some subjects and inadequately protect others, generate inconsistent results, and lag behind developments in how research is conducted. Invigorated by the U.S. government’s first steps toward change in over twenty years, Human Subjects Research Regulation brings together the leading thinkers in this field from ethics, law, medicine, and public policy to discuss how to make the system better. The result is a collection of novel ideas—some incremental, some radical—for the future of research oversight and human subject protection.

After reviewing the history of U.S. research regulations, the contributors consider such topics as risk-based regulation; research involving vulnerable populations (including military personnel, children, and prisoners); the relationships among subjects, investigators, sponsors, and institutional review boards; privacy, especially regarding biospecimens and tissue banking; and the possibility of fundamental paradigm shifts.

A Pobres joves grassos ens preguntem com i per què certes pràctiques alimentàries i corporals han esdevingut, en les darreres dècades, problemes de salut pública amb implicacions socials, culturals i polítiques. En aquest sentit, la nostra recerca és la continuació de més de deu anys de treballs sobre els trastorns de la conducta alimentària (TCA) —eating disorders—, amb un interès ara centrat en l’estudi sociocultural de l’obesitat. Mitjançant una aproximació etnogràfica en l’àmbit assistencial i a través d’internet, analitzem experiències i representacions d’estar i sentir-se gras entre la joventut catalana. El nostre objectiu principal consisteix en esbrinar si la grassor ha condicionat les seves trajectòries personals i socials i si, concretament, afavoreix formes específiques de discriminació en l’àmbit formatiu, familiar o lúdic.

Participatory research is a relatively new method of researching practice especially within palliative care. It differs from other methodologies in that there is an expectation of action within the research process. The values that underpin participatory research are collaboration, empowerment, and reflection. In the current climate of collaboration and working with people in healthcare, participatory research methods are gaining increasing interest when there is a desire to bring about change. Organisational change is becoming an important focus as we look at ways of not only reducing costs but at the same time improving quality of care.

While palliative care puts the patient and family at the centre, Participatory Research in Palliative Care discusses a new research methodology that puts practitioners at the heart of the research process as collaborators who work together with researchers to resolve problems in practice.

Divided into three sections, it provides theoretical groundings of action research, a greater focus on exemplars from studies within palliative care, and discusses prominent issues when using such a methodology. All three sections are illustrated by an action research study undertaken by the author within a palliative care setting.

Participatory Research in Palliative Care is written by international, multi-disciplinary authors who explore a collaborative approach to embark on research. It will appeal to health and social care professionals, academics undertaking research within palliative care, and the management of organisations where people with end of life care needs are cared for, including long-term care homes.
Readership: Suitable for health and social care professionals caring for people and their families at the end of life, as well as academics undertaking research within palliative care, and the management of organisations where people with end of life care needs are cared for, including long term care homes.

This book comprises eleven chapters which engage with, or take their point of departure from, the influential work in moral and political philosophy of Bernard Williams (1929–2003). Various themes of Williams's work are explored and taken in new directions. The chapters are all concerned with Williams's work on the viability or wisdom of systematic moral theory, and his criticism, in particular, of moral theory's preoccupation with impartiality. Some chapters address Williams's work on moral luck, and his insistence that moral appraisals bear a disquieting sensitivity to various kinds of luck. One chapter makes further connections between moral luck and the ‘non-identity problem’ in reproductive ethics. Other chapters investigate Williams's defence of ‘internalism’ about reasons for action, which makes our reasons for action a function of our desires, projects, and psychological dispositions. One chapter attempts to plug a gap in Williams's theory which is created by Williams's deference to imagination, while another chapter connects these issues to Williams's accommodation of ‘thick’ ethical concepts as a source of knowledge and action-guidingness. A further chapter examines Williams's less-known work on the other central normative concept, ‘ought’. Another chapter takes a look at Williams's work on moral epistemology and intuitionism, comparing and contrasting his work with that of John McDowell, and Gerald Lang explores Williams's work on equality, discrimination, and interspecies relations in order to reach the conclusion, similar to Williams's, theory that ‘speciesism’ is very unlike racism or sexism.

En las comunidades rurales de la costa y sierra de Oaxaca, cada vez es más frecuente encontrarse una mujer como cabeza de familia, cumpliendo funciones clave dentro del grupo doméstico. A las mujeres se las puede ver trabajando en la casa, cultivando el huerto, criando aves de corral, cosechando café, trayendo leña y/o agua o elaborando artesanías. A esto, hay que sumar el cuidado de los y las hijas y la responsabilidad de todo el proceso alimentario. Ante la necesidad de mejorar su situación socioeconómica, muchas de ellas se han apuntado a programas que promueven actividades emancipadoras, aunque eso haya supuesto aumentar su carga de trabajo dentro y fuera de casa.

People have searched for the fountain of youth everywhere from Bimini to St. Augustine. But for a steadfast group of scientists, the secret to a long life lies elsewhere: in the lowly lab worm. By suppressing the function of just a few key genes, these scientists were able to lengthen worms’ lifespans up to tenfold, while also controlling the onset of many of the physical problems that beset old age. As the global population ages, the potential impact of this discovery on society is vast—as is the potential for profit.
With The Longevity Seekers, science writer Ted Anton takes readers inside this tale that began with worms and branched out to snare innovative minds from California to Crete, investments from big biotech, and endorsements from TV personalities like Oprah and Dr. Oz. Some of the research was remarkable, such as the discovery of an enzyme in humans that stops cells from aging. And some, like an oft-cited study touting the compound resveratrol, found in red wine—proved highly controversial, igniting a science war over truth, credit, and potential profit. As the pace of discovery accelerated, so too did powerful personal rivalries and public fascination, driven by the hope that a longer, healthier life was right around the corner
