Espiritualidad y salud integral Popular

Categoría: a) Fundamentación de la bioética

Precio:18€


Desde hace décadas el concepto de salud de la OMS está siendo criticado por ser parcial y limitado, ya que en el mismo se omite la dimensión espiritual, como elemento que puede formar parte de la salud integral del ser humano. Por otra parte son cada vez más las publicaciones e investigaciones científicas que se están ocupando de las relaciones de la salud física y la mental con la espiritualidad, habiendo en este sentido hallazgos contradictorios (en unos casos se encuentra que la espiritualidad se asocia a una mejor salud y en otros con lo contrario).
Por estos motivos, hemos decidido revisar, desde diferentes puntos de vista el papel de la espiritualidad en la salud, mediante las aportaciones de los diversos profesionales que han participado en el IV Congreso de Antropología, Psicología y Espiritualidad, dedicado en esta ocasión al tema-Espiritualidad y Salud Integral-.
En el presente libro se recogen las ponencias de dicho congreso. En las mismas se van planteando diversas conexiones entre la salud y la espiritualidad, con varias pregunta básicas de fondo: ¿Aporta algo la espiritualidad a la salud? ¿Hay relaciones entre la salud y la espiritualidad? ¿Qué nos dice la investigación científica sobre esto?, Etc.

Precio: 23,75€


Nombre de « scandales éthiques » ont émaillé l'actualité de la recherche clinique dans les pays du Sud. L'objet de cet ouvrage est de soutenir que l'éthique de la recherche peut et doit être replacée dans son contexte mais que cette contextualisation ne passe pas par la conception de « standards éthiques » moins exigeants dans les pays du Sud, mais par un « acclimatement » à ceux-ci.

En mayo de 2003, en Cancún, México, con la participación y apoyo decisivos de la UNESCO, se fundó la Red Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Bioética (Redbioética) – www.redlacbioetica.org -, compuesta por distinguidos investigadores e intelectuales de la bioética en la región.
Bajo la coordinación académica del presidente de su Consejo Director, profesor Volnei Garrafa (Universidad de Brasilia) y del profesor Miguel Kottow (Universidad de Chile), la Red organizó en Montevideo, Uruguay, del 8 al 9 de noviembre de 2004, una reunión científica para discutir lo que se llamó Estatuto Epistemológico de la Bioética. En otras palabras, la finalidad del encuentro consistió en analizar –a partir de la realidad de los países latinoamericanos y caribeños- las bases conceptuales de sustentación de la propia bioética.
Este libro recoge los contenidos de dicho encuentro poniéndolos al alcance de todos los lectores interesados.

ISBN: 9788449331022
Precio: 24€


Esto cambia todo es una brillante explicación de las razones por las que la crisis climática nos desafía a abandonar definitivamente la ideología de «libre mercado», a reestructurar la economía global y a rehacer nuestros sistemas políticos.
En este libro, Naomi Klein sostiene que el cambio climático es una alerta que nos obliga a replantearnos nuestro actual modelo económico, ya fracasado en muchos aspectos, y defiende que la reducción masiva de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero es la única oportunidad de acortar las enormes desigualdades económicas, replantear nuestras democracias fracturadas y reconstruir las economías locales.
Con el estilo directo al que nos tiene acostumbrados, la autora desafía nuestras conciencias con esta obra provocativa que pone el cambio climático en el centro de la política.

Precio:18,90 €


En formas de entrada de diario, los textos aquí recogidos no son solamente una reflexión personal, sino también un intento de captar el signo de nuestros tiempos a través de los acontecimientos que se producían cotidianamente: una posibilidad en el inicio, en una fase en los que apenas eran perceptibles y, en cualquier caso, antes de convertirse en parte de esos temas demasiado manidos y banales que pronto caen en el olvido.Algunos de estos acontecimientos formarán parte de nuestras vidas durante mucho tiempo, otros se desvanecerán antes de poder ser observados y estudiados en profundidad. En este mundo cambiante, proteico y caleidoscópico, es muy complicado predecir el curso de los acontecimientos y decidir de antemano cuáles de ellos lograrán gran proyección e importancia y cuales pasarán desapercibidos.El autor, siguiendo la máxima de William Blake, se propone“contemplar el universo a partir de un grano de arena”y, a partir de ahí, alertarnos de aquello que nos sucederá, o puede sucedernos, en nuestras vidas privadas, formas de solidaridad, perspectivas compartidas, las maneras en que percibimos a los demás y nos relacionamos con ellos, las fuerzas que configuran nuestras vidas, oportunidades e itinerarios, y las formas en las que tratamos de controlar, o cuando menos influir o incluso reformar para mejor alguna de estas dimensiones de nuestra existencia.Estas oportunas meditaciones por parte de uno de los pensadores sociales más clarividentes de nuestra época despertarán, sin duda, el interés de un amplio abanico de lectores.



Estudios sobre la responsabilidad sanitaria Un análisis interdisciplinar Popular

Autor: Eugenio Llamas Pombo
Edición: La Ley, 2014
ISBN: 978-84-9020-300-2
Precio: 55€


En esta obra se recogen los trabajos de un grupo de investigadores que afrontan los temas más acuciantes que hoy afectan a la responsabilidad sanitaria, desde la perspectiva del Derecho civil, penal, constitucional, administrativo, procesal y médico-legal. Se han seleccionado aquellas cuestiones que, tanto desde el punto de vista del profesional del Derecho, como desde la perspectiva científica, presentan una mayor dificultad o venían reclamando un estudio más profundo.

Cuando se produce una negligencia médica, son distintas las jurisdicciones implicadas y las responsabilidades que se pueden generar, lo que también hace complejo el ejercicio de la pertinente acción reclamatoria ante los Tribunales.

Como ejemplo, debe recordarse que en el ámbito civil la responsabilidad, que tradicionalmente ha venido partiendo del concepto de culpa, se ha acabado objetivando de forma paulatina como consecuencia de la necesidad de proteger al damnificado frente al detrimento patrimonial sufrido, y ya no sólo por la tendencia a extender al máximo la cobertura de las relaciones dañosas de la actividad humana. Por ello, la culpa civil ya no se concibe como la omisión de la diligencia exigible, sino que se configura como un amplísimo paraguas que abarca tanto comportamientos producidos con negligencia pero sin antijuridicidad, como aquellos otros que son diligentes y lícitos en su origen, pero que merecen un reproche social por su resultado.

La responsabilidad civil, administrativa y penal médico-sanitaria es un tema de indudable actualidad, que preocupa tanto a juristas como a profesionales de la medicina, puesto que las negligencias médicas suponen cada año multitud de contiendas a dirimir en los juzgados, lo que arrastra a una "judicialización" de la sanidad, que conduce a los facultativos a practicar una medicina defensiva. Se hace por ello preciso profundizar en los aspectos legales de esta materia y mejorar la comunicación entre médico y paciente, ya que la mayor parte de reclamaciones se deben a la falta de información o a vicios en el consentimiento informado.



Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs Popular

ISBN: 978-0-309-21813-9
Precio: 55$


An estimated 48 percent of the population takes at least one prescription drug in a given month. Drugs provide great benefits to society by saving or improving lives. Many drugs are also associated with side effects or adverse events, some serious and some discovered only after the drug is on the market. The discovery of new adverse events in the postmarketing setting is part of the normal natural history of approved drugs, and timely identification and warning about drug risks are central to the mission of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not all risks associated with a drug are known at the time of approval, because safety data are collected from studies that involve a relatively small number of human subjects during a relatively short period.

Written in response to a request by the FDA, Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs discusses ethical and informed consent issues in conducting studies in the postmarketing setting. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to generate evidence about safety questions, and makes recommendations for appropriate followup studies and randomized clinical trials. The book provides guidance to the FDA on how it should factor in different kinds of evidence in its regulatory decisions.

In the past 30 years, the population of prisoners in the United States has expanded almost 5-fold, correctional facilities are increasingly overcrowded, and more of the country's disadvantaged populations—racial minorities, women, people with mental illness, and people with communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis—are under correctional supervision.
Because prisoners face restrictions on liberty and autonomy, have limited privacy, and often receive inadequate health care, they require specific protections when involved in research, particularly in today's correctional settings. Given these issues, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Human Research Protections commissioned the Institute of Medicine to review the ethical considerations regarding research involving prisoners.

Is it ethical to treat a death row inmate only to stabilize him or her for eventual execution? What happens when a military provider receives highly sensitive intelligence from a client? How can clinicians refuse costly gifts from clients without damaging the therapeutic relationship? Should a therapist disclose a client's suicidal intent to the authorities?

In Ethical Conundrums, Quandaries and Predicaments in Mental Health Practice, these and other real-life scenarios constitute a comprehensive and definitive ethics casebook for mental health professionals. Inspired by the many difficult situations they themselves have faced, an eminent group of accomplished mental health clinicians provide first-hand accounts of ethical problems that defy boilerplate solutions. Each chapter begins with a compelling and ethically complex case followed by an illustrative yet succinct analysis of the key ethical issues present and a personal reflection on the case itself, along with the process of ethical reasoning used to arrive at a final decision. Every case concludes with key recommendations for promoting ethical practice within an often challenging work setting. Highlighting the human aspect of ethics in mental health practice through the use of mesmerizing narratives while also provoking the reader to reflect upon what is the "right" thing to do, Ethical Conundrums, Quandaries and Predicaments in Mental Health Practice offers trainees and seasoned professionals alike invaluable informative models for dealing with ethical dilemmas, as well as the inspiration to confront seemingly insurmountable clinical problems.

Most neonates who now survive intensive care would have died 50 years ago, and “nature” would have decided the outcomes, making ethical discussions about initiating or withholding resuscitation irrelevant. Medical developments in neonatology have changed the way we respond to diseases of neonates, to their illness, and to their parents. Not only as physicians, but also as a society.

Decisions on when to start, withhold, or withdraw life-saving interventions in critically ill neonates are among the most difficult decisions in pediatric practice. These decisions are fraught with ethical dilemmas, for example deciding whether withholding intensive care –leading to death- is superior to uncertain survival with a risk of disability and the additional burden of intensive care. This book covers important ethical questions that arise in neonatal intensive care units. Questions such as, whether to intervene medically and whether we are good at predicting the outcome of fragile neonates; whether a medical intervention should be withheld or withdrawn, and who should be primarily responsible for these decisions and how?

Knowledge of the genetic basis of human diseases is growing rapidly, with important implications for pre-conceptional, prenatal, and predictive testing. While new genetic testing offers better insight into the causes of and susceptibility for heritable diseases, not all inherited diseases that can be predicted on the basis of genetic information can be treated or cured. Should we test everyone who wants to know his or her genetic status, even when there are no possibilities for treatment? What is the role of the "right-not-to-know?" Do we test children for adult onset disorders because the parents just "have to know" or do we respect the children's right to choose when they are older? Do we allow commercial companies to offer genetic tests directly to consumers without the proper oversight regarding what the test results will mean?

University researchers in the United States seeking to observe, survey, or interview people are required first to complete ethical training courses and to submit their proposals to an institutional review board (IRB). Under current rules, IRBs have the power to deny funding, degrees, or promotion if their recommended modifications to scholars’ proposals are not followed. This volume explains how this system of regulation arose and discusses its chilling effects on research in the social sciences and humanities.</P><P>Zachary M. Schrag draws on original research and interviews with the key shapers of the institutional review board regime to raise important points about the effect of the IRB process on scholarship. He explores the origins and the application of these regulations and analyzes how the rules—initially crafted to protect the health and privacy of the human subjects of medical experiments—can limit even casual scholarly interactions such as a humanist interviewing a poet about his or her writing. In assessing the issue, Schrag argues that biomedical researchers and bioethicists repeatedly excluded social scientists from rule making and ignored the existing ethical traditions in nonmedical fields. Ultimately, he contends, IRBs not only threaten to polarize medical and social scientists, they also create an atmosphere wherein certain types of academics can impede and even silence others. </P><P>The first work to document the troubled emergence of today's system of regulating scholarly research, <I>Ethical Imperialism</I> illuminates the problems caused by simple, universal rule making in academic and professional research. This short, smart analysis will engage scholars across academia.

This book is a set of recommendations from the Bioethics Commission in response to a request from President Obama to review the ethical issues associated with the conduct and implications of neuroscience research; and President Obama’s request related to the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. Specifically the President asked the Bioethics Commission to "identify proactively a set of core ethical standards – both to guide neuroscience research and to address some of the ethical dilemmas that may be raised by the application of neuroscience research findings." This book focuses on the integration of ethics into neuroscience research across the life of a research endeavor; and on the analysis of three particularly controversial topics that illustrate the ethical tensions and societal implications of advancing neuroscience and technology: cognitive enhancement, consent capacity, and neuroscience and the legal system. The book seeks to clarify the scientific landscape, identify common ground, and recommend ethical paths forward. (Imprint: Nova)

They touch upon social, political, economic, cultural, and environmental aspects of ethical decision making, emphasizing the importance of intellectual clarity and moral integrity in the process. The book is divided into three parts, each focusing on a specific aspect of ethical leadership. In the first section the theoretical and philosophical issues pertaining to the foundations of ethical leadership are explored, whereas the second and third sections bring out the practical and contemporary challenges regarding the manifestation of ethical leadership.

Edición: Columbia University Press, 2015
ISBN: 9780231538732
Precio:55$


Ethical loneliness is the experience of being abandoned by humanity, compounded by the cruelty of wrongs not being heard. It is the result of multiple lapses on the part of human beings and political institutions that, in failing to listen well to survivors, deny them redress by negating their testimony and thwarting their claims for justice.
Jill Stauffer examines the root causes of ethical loneliness and how those in power revise history to serve their own ends rather than the needs of the abandoned. Out of this discussion, difficult truths about the desire and potential for political forgiveness, transitional justice, and political reconciliation emerge. Moving beyond a singular focus on truth commissions and legal trials, she considers more closely what is lost in the wake of oppression and violence, how selves and worlds are built and demolished, and who is responsible for re-creating lives after they are destroyed.

Ethical Problems and Genetics Practice provides a rich, case-based account of the ethical issues arising in the genetics clinic and laboratory. By analysing a wide range of evocative and often arresting cases from practice, Michael Parker provides a compelling insight into the complex moral world of the contemporary genetics professional and the challenges they face in the care of patients and their families. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the ethical issues arising in everyday genetics practice. Ethical Problems and Genetics Practice is also a sustained engagement with the relationships between bioethics and social science. In proposing and exemplifying a new approach to bioethics, it makes a significant contribution to debates on methods and interdisciplinarity and will therefore also appeal to all those concerned with theoretical and methodological approaches to bioethics and social science.

Health care injustices of race, class and gender inequality have plagued American medicine for centuries. Few African American bioethicists have critiqued these issues effectively through case study analysis of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and other related studies. However, Obiora N. Anekwe confronts these ethical challenges upfront without hesitation. He discusses how unethical actions have negatively affected the medical treatment of the most vulnerable. Anekwe not only brings these issues to the forefront, but he also offers tangible solutions to our most pressing ethical challenges. In his most recent book, Ethically Speaking: Essays and Other Writings on Race, Class and Justice in Health Care and Medicine, Anekwe discusses race, class, gender, and other related issues from a multilayered and diverse perspective. He also confronts other relevant ethical issues that continue to plague the universal black race such as global colorism and skin bleaching.

The Ebola epidemic in western Africa has demonstrated that public health, and public health ethics, is global and not merely local. Recognizing that public health preparedness requires ethics preparedness, the Bioethics Commission sought to create recommendations that support policies and practices that enable a proactive response to public health epidemics. In Ethics and Ebola the Bioethics Commission offers seven pointed recommendations related to engagement, infrastructure, communications, and integration; specifically, the Commission considers what lessons the U.S. response to the epidemic in western Africa has for ethics preparedness for future public health emergencies, and examines ethical dimensions of restrictive public health measures, the use of placebos for treatment and vaccine trials, and collecting and sharing biospecimens for future research. Ethics and Ebola is a Commission-directed project.

For most of political science's history, discussions about professional ethics had nothing to do with human subjects. Professional ethics involved integrity in the classroom, fair tenure and promotion rule, and the careful avoidance of plagiarism. As most research was observational, there was little need for attention to how scholarly activities might directly affect the subjects of our work. Times have changed. The dramatic growth in the use of experiments in social science, especially overseas, is generating unexpected ethical controversies. The purpose of this volume is to identify, debate, and propose practical solutions to the most critical of these new ethical issues.

A leading team of internationally distinguished political science scholars presents the first examination of the practical and ethical challenges of research with human subjects in social science and policy studies.

Part 1 examines contextual challenges provided by experiments conducted overseas - questions of culture, religion, security, and poverty.

Part 2 examines questions of legal constraints on research, focusing on questions of foreign review of international experiments.

Part 3 tackles the critical issues in field experiments, including deception and consent, impact on elections and careers, the boundaries of the public officials' exemption, and the use of partner organizations to avoid Institutional Review Body (IRB) review.

Part 4 considers strategies for the future, including training and education, IRB reform, institutional changes, and norm development.

Who owns your genes? What does climate science imply for policy? Do corporations conduct honest research? Should we teach intelligent design? Humans are creating a new world through science. The kind of world we are creating will not simply be decided by expanding scientific knowledge, but will depend on views about good and bad, right and wrong. These visions, in turn, depend on critical thinking, cogent argument and informed judgement. In this book, Adam Briggle and Carl Mitcham help readers to cultivate these skills. They first introduce ethics and the normative structure of science and then consider the 'society of science' and its norms for the responsible conduct of research and the treatment of human and animal research subjects. Later chapters examine 'science in society' - exploring ethical issues at the interfaces of science, policy, religion, culture and technology. Each chapter features case studies and research questions to stimulate further reflection.

Whether it is nuclear power, geo-engineering or genetically modified foods, the development of new technologies can be fraught with complex ethical challenges and political controversy which defy simple resolution. In the past two decades there has been a shift towards processes of Participatory Technology Assessment designed to build channels of two-way communication between technical specialists and non-expert citizens, and to incorporate multiple stakeholder perspectives in the governance of contentious technology programmes. This participatory turn has spurred a need for new tools and techniques to encourage group deliberation and capture public values, moral and choices. This book specifically examines the ethical dimensions of controversial technologies, and discusses how these can be evaluated in a philosophically robust manner when the ones doing the deliberating are not ethicists, legal or technical experts. Grounded in philosophical pragmatism and drawing upon empirical work in partnership with citizen-stakeholders, this book presents a model called “Reflective Ethical Mapping” - a new meta-ethical framework and toolbox of techniques to facilitate citizen engagement with technology ethics.

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have focused new attention on a perennial problem: how to end wars well. What ethical considerations should guide war's settlement and its aftermath? In cases of protracted conflicts, recurring war, failed or failing states, or genocide and war crimes, is there a framework for establishing an enduring peace that is pragmatic and moral?

Ethics Beyond War's End provides answers to these questions from the just war tradition. Just war thinking engages the difficult decisions of going to war and how war is fought. But from this point forward just war theory must also take into account what happens after war ends, and the critical issues that follow: establishing an enduring order, employing political forms of justice, and cultivating collective forms of conciliation. Top thinkers in the field—including Michael Walzer, Jean Bethke Elshtain, James Turner Johnson, and Brian Orend—offer powerful contributions to our understanding of the vital issues associated with late- and post conflict in tough, real-world scenarios that range from the US Civil War to contemporary quagmires in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and the Congo.

The fourth edition sees this structure blended with a phases of life approach, which explores ethics from the beginning of life through to the end of life, and includes a new chapter on 'Midlife and Health Care Challenges'.

Exercises, case studies and a number of other pedagogical devices continue to be woven throughout the text, which help students think about particular ethical issues or standards. This fourth edition includes 'From Theory to Practice' boxes, which are insights, exercises or tips from lecturers and clinicians working within health care.

This comprehensive textbook analyzes the ethical issues of health and health care in global perspective. Ideal for students of public health, medicine, nursing and allied health professions, public policy, and ethics, the book helps students in all these areas to develop important competencies in their chosen fields. Applying a comparative, or multicultural, approach, the book compares different perspectives on ethical issues in various countries and cultures, such as informed consent, withholding or withdrawing treatment, physician-assisted suicide, reproductive health issues, research with human subjects, the right to health care, rationing of limited resources, and health system reform. Applying a transnational, or cross-border, approach, the book analyzes ethical issues that arise from the movement of patients and health professionals across national borders, such as medical tourism and transplant tourism, ethical obligations to provide care for undocumented aliens, and the “brain drain” of health professionals from developing countries.
Comprehensive in scope, the book includes selected readings which provide diverse perspectives of people from different countries and cultures in their own words. Each chapter contains an introductory section centered on a specific topic and explores the different ways in which the topic is viewed around the globe.

Ethics in Health Services and Policy is designed to promote student participation and offers methods of activity-based learning, including factual scenarios for analysis and discussion of specific ethical issues.



Ethics in lights of childhood Popular

Childhood faces humanity with its own deepest and most perplexing questions. An ethics that truly includes the world's childhoods would transcend pre-modern traditional communities and modern rational autonomy with a postmodern aim of growing responsibility. It would understand human relations in a poetic rather than universalistic sense as openly and interdependently creative. As a consequence, it would produce new understandings of moral being, time, and otherness, as well as of religion, rights, narrative, families, obligation, and power.

Ethics in Light of Childhood fundamentally reimagines ethical thought and practice in light of the experiences of the third of humanity who are children. Much like humanism, feminism, womanism, and environmentalism, Wall argues, a new childism is required that transforms moral thinking, relations, and societies in fundamental ways. Wall explores childhood's varied impacts on ethical thinking throughout history, advances the emerging interdisciplinary field of childhood studies, and reexamines basic assumptions in contemporary moral theory and practice.

In the process, he does not just apply ethics to childhood but applies childhood to ethics—in order to imagine a more expansive humanity. - See more at: http://press.georgetown.edu/book/georgetown/ethics-light-childhood#sthash.Su1Cz7kj.dpuf
