The Politics of the Opioid Epidemic

The Politics of the Opioid Epidemic

Author: Susan L. Moffitt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/03/2020

In The Politics of the Opioid Epidemic, leading political scientists from diverse theoretical traditions provide new insights into the enduring features of American policy and practice that have influenced state-level and national responses to the ongoing opioid crisis. Key among these features is the persistent power of race in shaping public opinion of the opioid crisis, influencing the development of punitive and treatment-oriented legislation, and impacting media portrayal of opioids and the communities they affect. Other factors include the development of the conservative welfare state and the challenges of delivering information and services to affected communities through existing, dysfunctional systems. Analyzing the manifold politics that have contributed to the current situation, contributors explain the depth of the current opioid epidemic and highlight the need for structural change to produce durable, effective policies. Contributors. Amanda Abraham, Christina M. Andrews, Clifford S. Bersamira, Andrea Louise Campbell, Sarah E. Gollust, Colleen M. Grogan, Gali Katznelson, Jin Woo Kim, Miriam Laugesen, Joanne M. Miller, Susan L. Moffitt, Evan Morgan, Brendan Nyhan, Eric M. Patashnik, Elizabeth Perez-Chiques, Harold A. Pollack, Marie Schenk, Carmel Shachar, Phillip M.

American Fix Inside the Opioid Addiction Crisis - and How to End it

Author: Ryan Hampton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/03/2020

Nearly every American knows someone who has been affected by the opioid crisis. Addiction is a trans-partisan issue that impacts individuals from every walk of life. Millions of Americans, tired of watching their loved ones die while politicians ignore this issue. Where is the solution? Where is the hope? Where's the outrage? Ryan Hampton is a young man who has made addiction and recovery reform his life's mission. Through the wildly successful non-profit organisation Facing Addiction, Hampton has been rocketed to the center of America's rising recovery movement - quickly emerging as the de facto leader of the national conversation on addiction. He understands first hand how easy it is to develop a dependency on opioids, and how destructive it can quickly become. Now, he is waging a permanent campaign to change our way of thinking about and addressing addiction in this country. In American Fix, Hampton describes his personal struggle with addiction, outlines the challenges that the recovery movement currently faces, and offers a concrete, comprehensive plan of action towards making America's addiction crisis a thing of the past.

Clinical Practice and the Law A legal primer for clinicians

Clinical Practice and the Law A legal primer for clinicians

Author: Giles Eyre Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/10/2018

In a professional context where, more than ever before, the daily work of clinicians is subjected to intense scrutiny, this essential guide to medicine and the law addresses the fundamentals of how the law, lawyers and the legal system affect clinical practice. Medicine and the law are intricately linked through statutes, regulations and the common law. Yet, very few clinicians have more than a fuzzy understanding of the law and understand even less about how lawyers will approach medical matters when it is alleged that treatment has fallen short of what is reasonably to be expected of treating clinicians. The text explores: the common law principles that provide the context for clinical practice the importance of high-quality medical communication skills the need for explanatory medical notes and records the differences between evidence of fact and expert evidence essential legal knowledge in key-areas of clinical practice, including: patient confidentiality consenting patients mental capacity emergency detention of patients police investigations and the treatment of prisoners whistle-blowing and the duty of candour investigating incidents producing investigation reports and witness statements attending inquests fitness to practise proceedings criminal proceedings and civil claims for damages. Clinicians who integrate the basic legal principles explored in the text into their practice will not only develop a more robust approach to clinical practice, but are also likely to become better clinicians in the process. Giles Eyre is a barrister (now retired) who has spent a career working with clinicians in the context of litigation and other disputes and brings to this book not only his knowledge of the law but also of the practicalities of a clinician's work at its interface with the law. It is Giles Eyre's direct experience in the practice of these areas of the law, and his gift for clear and uncomplicated exposition, which makes this book so useful. It vitally fills a gap for clinicians. Those in established clinical practice would do well to consult it as a matter of course, and it deserves to become a basis for study for those in training. James Badenoch Q.C. This introductory guide provides information of importance for those anxious about the boundaries between medical practice and the law, and who wish to equip themselves better for a career in medicine.
