Oy Canada! Trade's Non-Solution To "The Problem" Of U.S. Drug Prices, Daniel Gilman Aug 2006

Oy Canada! Trade's Non-Solution To "The Problem" Of U.S. Drug Prices, Daniel Gilman

Faculty Scholarship

Price disparities—price “differentiation” or “discrimination”—in pharmaceuticals markets have, in recent years, been the subject of much discussion. Price sensitivity should come as no surprise: Medicines play an increasingly important role in healthcare, while pharmaceuticals prices continue to rise. When prices vary greatly within markets or between neighboring markets, the pressure towards arbitrage is clear. This paper considers the question whether the re-importation of medicines from Canada or the EU is well advised and argues that it is not. First, we might reasonably question the extent to which we wish, as a matter of policy, to manage pharmaceuticals pricing ...

Federal Regulation Of Hospital Resident Work Hours: Enforcement With Real Teeth, Clark J. Lee Jun 2006

Federal Regulation Of Hospital Resident Work Hours: Enforcement With Real Teeth, Clark J. Lee

Student Articles and Papers

In recent years, there has been an increase in the public’s awareness of medical errors committed by sleep-deprived and overworked hospital residents. This awareness has resulted in increased public concern regarding patient safety in teaching hospitals across the United States, as well as increased concerns regarding the safety and education of hospital residents themselves. To address these concerns, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) appointed the Work Group on Resident Duty Hours and the Learning Environment in September 2001 to establish guidelines for appropriate resident work hours. At about the same time, bills establishing federal statutory restrictions ...

The Scarlet Gene: Behavioral Genetics, Criminal Law, And Racial And Ethnic Stigma, Karen H. Rothenberg, Alice Wang

Faculty Scholarship

Imagine that a scientist from the state university asks you and your family to participate in a study on a particular gene variant associated with alcoholism. The project focuses on your ethnic group, the Tracy Islanders, who have a higher incidence of alcoholism, as well as a higher incidence of the gene variant, than the general population. You will not be informed whether you have the gene variant, but your participation in the study might help scientists develop drugs to help individuals control their addiction to alcohol. You have a family history of alcoholism, and you are concerned that your ...


Autonomy Suspended: Using Female Patients To Teach Intimate Exams Without Their Consent, Robin Fretwell Wilson Feb 2006

Autonomy Suspended: Using Female Patients To Teach Intimate Exams Without Their Consent, Robin Fretwell Wilson

Faculty Scholarship

Recent reports of medical students performing pelvic exams for training purposes on anesthetized women without their consent have produced a firestorm of controversy. Peter Ubel and colleagues found that 90% of medical students performed such exams during their obstetrics/gynecology rotations. A series of 2003 reports focused a white-hot spotlight on this teaching practice and resulted in Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice hearings and action by the American Association of Medical Colleges and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. In this article, Professor Wilson examines the merits of the defenses and justifications for using female patients for ...
