Bioethics and the Law takes a multidisciplinary approach that combines legal discussion with jurisprudential, philosophical, and sociological materials. Strong expressions of different points of view highlight debates about bioethical issues. The text underscores the need to mediate between the law's focus on broad rules and the bioethicist's concern with context and detail. Students are required to consider the ethical implications of health care as a business, face the shifting parameters of the provider/patient relationship in healthcare, and understand the role of government in designing and implementing healthcare programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Bioethics and the Law supplements the traditional focus of bioethics on the interest of the individual with a second focus on the socio-economic developments that shape healthcare. Connecting broad public healthcare issues to concerns of the individual patient/healthcare consumer, the text promotes understanding of unsettling and complex situations and shows the implications of bioethical developments for understandings of personhood. A helpful glossary defines basic terms and several short appendices summarize recent developments in science and technology. The Third Edition offers in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists. Separate sections are devoted to issues related to individuals and those related primarily to communities. A significantly expanded discussion of access to health care explores the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the debate about its constitutionality as well as new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics. A new chapter on privacy and essentialism focuses on bioethical questions occasioned by genetic information and neuroimaging. There is new consideration of discrimination in health care as well as new material on its business aspects. Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents: in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists separate sections on issues related to individuals and those related to communities significantly expanded discussion of access to health care the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and debate about its constitutionality new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics , a new chapter on privacy and essentialism, focusing on bioethical questions around genetic information and neuroimaging consideration of discrimination in health care new material on the business aspects of health care

The Aspen Institute, a premier non-profit, research organization for corporate social responsibility, offers the first comprehensive guide to the world’s leading global MBA programs in CSR—an indispensable guide for prospective students, universities, hiring companies, and libraries. This guide provides an overview of how global MBA programs bring social impact management into their curricular and extracurricular programs. Social impact management, which includes environmental, ethical, and corporate governance issues, is the field of inquiry at the intersection of business needs and wider societal concerns that reflects their complex interdependency. Without an understanding of this interdependency, neither business nor the society in which it operates can thrive. Each year business schools from around the world strive to differentiate themselves and attract the best and the brightest future business leaders, while prospective MBAs are looking for a program that will provide effective management skills to succeed in the changing face of business. The bottom line is no longer exclusively dedicated to financial returns. Rather, business leaders must also consider the environmental and social impacts of their decisions in order to compete in today’s marketplace. The MBA schools that participate in the Aspen Institute’s survey, and are therefore highlighted in the Aspen Institute Guide for Socially Responsible MBA Programs: 2008-2009, are leaders in integrating these issues into their MBA curricula.

Sustainable Operations and Closed Loop Supply Chains

This book was written for any company or organization that needs detailed guidance on the journey towards sustainability, starting from zero. And if your firm wants to be sustainable, you know you have to consider the triple bottom line when making decisions: economic (profit), environmental (planet), and social (people). By focusing on the triple bottom line (3Ps), your firm can be assured of a steady supply of inputs such as raw materials and labor. Author Souza carefully explains the first step towards sustainability, which is aimed at reducing waste in operations, with the help of such tools as lean and Six Sigma. He will also help guide your firm through a “life cycle assessment” (LCA) for each of the main products and processes. LCA is a methodology designed to assess the environmental impact (such as energy consumption, and toxicity) of a product or process through its life cycle: raw material extraction, transportation, manufacturing, packaging and distribution, use by consumers, and end-of-life. The final step in the journey towards sustainability is to close the loop. To close the loop, you’ll learn about designing efficient packaging, designing products for multiple life cycles (as in design for remanufacturing), or designing products according to a Cradle to Cradle® philosophy, which ensures no use of toxic materials, ease of disassembly, and 100% up-cyclability. The book concludes with the “final P” of sustainability—people, with some examples of firms that invest heavily in the social bottom line.
