Ronald W. Scott

Legal Aspects Of Documenting Patient Care For Rehabilitation Professionals, 3rd edition, Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 2006.


KF3827.R4S385 2006

Since 1991, when a panel of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) found that U.S. import restrictions on tuna from countries with high dolphin mortality violated GATT’s trade rules, an entire field of law has emerged called “Trade and the Environment.” This book provides a thorough and balanced assessment of this developing area of law that affects consumer, regulatory and trade policy choices for governments around the world. It encompasses trade agreements and the evolving jurisprudence, from the 1991 tuna-dolphin case up to actions on agricultural subsidies in late 2004.

Because communication among health care professionals can mean the difference between patient life and death, clear and effective patient care documentation is as important as the delivery of care itself. The rehabilitation professional faces formidable documentation responsibilities. Patient care documentation created by the rehabilitation professional must be accurate, comprehensive, concise, objective, and timely. In an interdisciplinary health care environment, documentation must also be expeditiously communicated to other professionals on the health care team.

Legal Aspects of Documenting Patient Care for Rehabilitation Professionals, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of legal issues related to everyday patient care clinical documentation. This text presents extensive coverage of the electronic medical record, the HIPAA Privacy Rule and incident reporting, among other focused topics

Life Science Inventions: The Hurdles Of Law, Iustus Forlag, 2004.


K1519.B54W47 2004

Life science inventions - this question not only challenges patent law, but also involves other disciplines of law closely connected to patent law. Lately, patent rights to life science inventions have been in focus in the debate.

However, several related legal issues in the complex content of research and development of pharmaceuticals, and the following commercialization of these drugs, challenge the law. By examining the various aspects of inventions in this field, the author shows the complexity and develops a comprehensive understanding of legal issues affecting the players in the life sciences field.

The text explores modern patent law issues with a focus on the patentability of stem cells and research tools in Europe and the U.S. The book then adds an understanding of ethics within the European patent law and the access issues surrounding these kinds of inventions.

Other questions include the unfair competition and antitrust claims that recently have come into play in this context and ownership of biological material. The book ends with the various aspects surrounding market authorization with respect to infringement and unfair competition and sums up with a comprehensive analysis of the stem cell and research tool issues.
