Euthanasia in Veterinary Medicine

Offering a candid behind-the-scenes look at small-animal veterinary practices, Blue Juice explores the emotional and ethical conflicts involved in providing a "good death" for companion animals. Patricia Morris presents a nuanced ethnographic account of how veterinarians manage patient care and client relations when their responsibility shifts from saving an animal's life to negotiating a decision to end it. Using her own experiences and observations in veterinary settings as well as the voices of seasoned and novice vets, Morris reveals how veterinarians think about euthanasia and why this "dirty work" often precipitates "burnout," moral quandaries, and even tense or emotional interactions with clients. Closely observing these interactions, Morris illuminates the ways in which euthanasia reflects deep and unresolved tension in human-animal relationships. Blue Juice seeks to understand how practitioners, charged with the difficult task of balancing the interests of animals and their humans, deal with the responsibility of ending their patients' lives.

Unsere Beziehung zu den »anderen« Tieren gewinnt nicht bloß mehr und mehr an gesellschaftlicher Bedeutung, sie ist auch für die Wissenschaften wieder zum Thema geworden. Mit diesem Band widmet sich zum ersten Mal ein Lexikon umfassend den Mensch-Tier-Beziehungen. Im Gegensatz zu traditionellen Einführungen in die Tierethik beschränkt sich das groß angelegte Werk aber nicht auf moralphilosophische Themen, sondern beleuchtet die Mensch-Tier-Beziehungen u.a. auch aus historischer, soziologischer, ethologischer und kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive.

Medical articles are one of the main vehicles of knowledge translation and evidence communication in the health sciences. Their correct structure and style alone are no longer enough to convey a clear understanding of the intended message. Readers must be able to understand the very essence of the article message. That is the purpose of this book. Writing, Reading, and Understanding in Modern Health Sciences: Medical Articles and Other Forms of Communication will help the authors of medical articles communicate more effectively in today's practice and health research environment. It explores the most effective practices for communicating using three main medical literature formats: through scientific articles, articles where the subject is not based on the practice of the scientific method, and business reports. Describing how to think beyond the prevailing IMRAD article format, this book focuses on the nature, content, domains of thought, and meanings of medical articles. The ideas and underlying propositions in this book are complementary to specific requirements appropriate for each type of medical journal. After reading this book you will better understand: How to write what is considered the most important type of medical article, the research-based medical article How to write an evidence-based argumentative medical article The challenges of clinical case reporting The general framework of medical and research ethics Classification of medical articles and their underlying studies from the causal standpoint Supplying you with the understanding required to write more effective medical articles, the book includes details about essay-type articles, research-based articles, thesis as introduction sections, definitions as part of the material and methods sections, modern argumentation and critical thinking underlying results and their discussion and conclusions about them. It also examines qualitative research and case study methodologies from other domains. A must-read for all writers, readers, and users of medical articles, this book supplies the tools you need to write compelling medical reports that can help to improve the practice, research, and quality of healthcare at all levels.

In den letzten Jahren hat die Online-Befragung als Forschungsmethode deutlich an Beliebtheit gewonnen. Es hat nicht zuletzt mit den offenkundigen Vorteilen dieses Erhebungsmodus gegenüber den etablierten Modi zu tun, dass vor allem Unternehmen und private Forschungsinstitute, aber auch Universitäten immer stärker davon Gebrauch machen. Allerdings ist das Portfolio an Einsatzmöglichkeiten derzeit noch beschränkt und die Fehleranfälligkeit hoch. Vor diesem Hintergrund geben die Beiträge dieses Bandes einen Überblick über den aktuellen Stand der Online-Umfrageforschung als Instrument im Methodeninventar der Sozialwissenschaften. Dabei stehen zwei Perspektiven im Mittelpunkt, die auch die Gliederung des Bandes vorgeben: erstens die Methodologie der Online-Befragung bzw. des Befragungsexperiments und zweitens die forschungspraktische Anwendung. Der Band enthält daher einerseits Beiträge, die generell methodische Fragen (z.B. Stichprobenziehung, Fragebogenkonstruktion, Online-Implementation, Kontakt-Strategien) thematisieren und die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen dieses Erhebungsmodus ausloten. Andererseits werden Fallbeispiele dokumentiert, die das Design und die Befunde von Studien über Populationen vorstellen, die für diese Methode besonders geeignet sind.

Der Geschmack von Laub und Erde

Wie ich versuchte, als Tier zu leben

Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.
