  • The Law of Healthcare Administration is intended to give readers some appreciation of the role law plays in the everyday operation of our healthcare system. The book was first published in 1988, when the late Arthur F. Southwick was a guiding light in our field. It was the first to capture the essence of health law from management’s perspective. I have been privileged to carry Professor Southwick’s legacy through the third and fourth editions, and now it is time for the fifth.

  • Herbs and traditional medicines are being extensively used for healthcare in almost all the countries since times immemorial. Ancient religious texts are replete with references on the use of natural products with medicinal properties. Because of local beliefs and practices and also from cost considerations herbal medicines remain a popular mode of treatment in the developing countries. Even in the industrialised society the rising cost of prescription drugs and ensuing side effects of the treatment make it highly attractive to use the traditional medicine particularly for minor ailments....

  • IN THIS DAY and age of professionalism, many careers that years ago didn’t require much expertise now require not only formal training, but also some type of recognized certification.

  • This article begins with the premiss that we are in the midst of an epochal transformation from the modern to the postmodern era. Although this is a premiss and therefore need not be dwelt on at length, we believe a short introduction to the concept of postmodernity is necessary because of the intellectual controversy surrounding it and the relatively sparse discussion of postmodernity in marketing and business literatures (for exceptions see[1,2]). The bulk of this article, however, focuses on the relationship between marketing and postmodernity.

  • A recovery is on the horizon, but it will be a long and stony road before the EU economy reaches sustained growth. Following the escalation of the sovereign-debt crisis in the second half of 2011, the EU economy has entered a shallow recession in the fourth quarter. Since then, we have seen tentative signs of stabilisation. Yet, as the outlook for the EU economy is slowly improving, the situation remains extraordinarily fragile, and the risk of a renewed aggravation of the crisis is still present. The ebbing of the greatest financial market stress creates the...

  • From a theoretic economic perspective, the effect of taxes on private saving is ambiguous. If taxes are reduced, the after-tax return on saving is larger; consequently, individuals may be able to maintain a target level of wealth and save less (wealth will grow due to the higher after-tax returns). This is the income effect and has lower taxes leading to less saving. However, the reduced after-tax return changes the relative price of consuming now (saving less) and future consumption (saving more) in favor of future consumption.

  • Non-adherence should not be seen as the patient’s problem. It represents a fundamental limitation in the delivery of healthcare, often because of a failure to fully agree the prescription in the first place or to identify and provide the support that patients need later on. Addressing non-adherence is not about getting patients to take more medicines per se. Rather, it starts with an exploration of patients’ perspectives of medicines and the reasons why they may not want or are unable to use them.
