There is an understandable tendency or desire to attribute blame when patients are harmed by their own healthcare. However, many cases of iatrogenic harm involve little or no moral culpability. Even when blame is justified, an undue focus on one individual often deflects attention from other important factors within the inherent complexity of modern healthcare. This revised second edition advocates a rethinking of accountability in healthcare based on science, the principles of a just culture, and novel therapeutic legal processes. Updated to include many recent relevant events, including the Keystone Project in the USA and the Mid Staffordshire scandal in the UK, this book considers how the concepts of a just culture have been successfully implemented so far, and makes recommendations for best practice. This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with patient safety, medical law and the regulation of healthcare.

This e-book contains the complete text of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The edition also includes the latest data on health coverage and health care expenses, as well as the Republicans' counter arguments and their proposed bill. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, is a United States federal statute which, at the same time, represents the complete reform of the American health care system conducted by the former president Barack Obama. The main goal of this act was to drive better health outcomes, lower costs, and improve accessibility to health services. The whole system was designed to increase health insurance quality and affordability, lower the uninsured rate by expanding insurance coverage and reduce the costs of healthcare. In March 2017 the Republican Party, which opposed Obamacare, released its plan to replace it.

The Family in Law provides a jurisprudential analysis of current family law, connecting doctrinal discourse with sociological, historical and economic analyses of the institution of family. The law's focus on the nuclear family as the default model is central to the book's discourse, which contains in-depth discussions of the key areas of family law - marriage, divorce, children and property matters. Written for Australian legal actors - whether students, academics or professionals - readers are encouraged to question current frameworks, critique well-known cases and make informed conclusions on whether changes could be made to engender a fairer and more equitable society. In developing doctrinal analysis within a theoretical framework, The Family in Law challenges the conventional boundaries of family law, providing readers with both a solid foundation and a multi-layered perspective to their understanding of the topic.

東京都町田市で開業しております、司法書士の栗原庸介です。<br /> 本書をお読みいただき、真にありがとうございます。<br /><br /> 「女と男の法律学」シリーズも、番外篇も数えるとこれで11冊目となります。<br /> 既に、離婚だけで8冊もの電子書籍を上梓しております。<br /> 離婚事件はそれだけ奥が深いということでしょうか。<br /><br /> さて本書では、面会交流の問題を取り上げます。<br /><br /> 離婚の際には、父母のどちらが「親権者」になるかを決めることになります。<br /> 親権者にはならず、子を膝下において子の監護をすることができない親が、子どもと直接に会って話したり、間接に手紙・電話・メール等によるやりとり、写真やビデオレターの送付、子の通知表の送付等の方法で交流したりすることを総称して「面会交流」といいます。<br /><br /> 離婚時のみならず、別居中の夫婦においても、面会交流の在り方が問題となります。<br /><br /> 平成23年5月に、民法766条が改正され、父母が協議上の離婚をするときは、「父又は母と子との面会及びその他の交流」「子の監護に要する費用の分担」(いわゆる養育費)を、「子の利益を最も優先して考慮し」ながら協議で定めると規定されました。<br /><br /> 平成24年4月からの施行に伴って、法務省は協議離婚届出書の書式を変更。未成年の子がいる場合、面会交流や養育費について取り決めをしているか否かをチェックする欄が設けられました。当事者間の取り決めを促す目的です。ただし、チェックがなくても離婚届は受理される扱いです。<br /><br /> 法務省の調査によれば、少し古いデータで恐縮ですが、法施行から1年間で、未成年者の子どものいる夫婦の離婚の届出は13万1254件あり、このうち面会交流の取り決めをしたのは55%、養育費の取り決めをしたのは56%に留まっています(平成25年8月19日読売新聞より)。法の趣旨から考えると非常に低い数字だという感想を持ちます。<br /><br /> 一方、面会交流についての協議が調わないことを理由とした調停申立ては激増しています。平成11年ではわずか2000件足らずだったものが平成17年には5000件になり、平成25年に初めて1万件を突破。見事な右肩上がりのグラフとなっています。<br /><br /> 離婚の際、または別居の際、起こり得る紛争で最も熾烈を極めるものが、子どもの奪い合いだと言って過言ではないでしょう。<br /><br /> 離婚後に親権者とならなかった親、または別居時に子どもと引き離されてしまった側の親は、子に対する監護権を(別居の場合は事実上)失いますから、面会交流が円滑に行われないと、恰も親たることを否定されたにも等しい状況になってしまいます。<br /><br /> もっとも、面会交流は本来親の権利としてではなく子の権利として捉えられるべき問題です。民法も明文で子の福祉を最優先することを求めています。面会交流が円滑に実施されることは、子が心身ともに健やかに成長する上で非常に重要なのです。(もちろんDV・虐待事案等は除きます。)子にとっては、たとえ両親が離婚しても、どちらも実の親なのです。親権者は、非親権者側の親にも会いたいと思う子どもの気持ちに寄り添い、尊重することが求められます。その意味で、フレンドリー・ペアレント・ルールを正面から採用した千葉家庭裁判所の判決は注目に値します。<br /><br /> 本書で、面会交流を中心に離婚に伴う子どもの問題を見ていきましょう!

She’s on the run and has nobody else to turn to.<br /><br />If everything the girl is saying is true, some of the largest players in the Missoula community are involved. Armed only with his own trepidations and the loyalty of those around him, Drake must find a way to save his friend and his own growing skepticism before it’s too late.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK • </b><i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing—and failing to change—the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America’s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It’s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing<i> Time</i> magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. <br />  <br /> But by chance <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> ends up being much more—because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney—and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Praise for <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i> </b><br />  <br /> “An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’ ”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “A sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.”<b>—<i>The Daily Beast</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “One of the most important books of our time.”<b>—Walter Isaacson</b><br />  <br /> “Superb . . . Brill has achieved the seemingly impossible—written an exciting book about the American health system.”<b>—<i>The</i> <i>New York Review of Books</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
