Overview

Determine what organizations have issued position statements on a specific subject!

A position document establishes the view of an organization based on its knowledge on the subject at that specific time. Biomedical Organizations: A Worldwide Guide to Position Documents puts the results of a survey of hundreds of global medical organizations and their position statements at your fingertips. This comprehensive reference not only analyzes and discusses the history and characteristics of the creation and development of the organizational position statement, but also lists medical organizations and their Web site addresses, and presents an alphabetical index of their position statements. Indexed according to subject as well as by organization, this one-of-a-kind source allows readers to determine what organizations have issued position documents on a specific subject such as alcoholism or HIV, as well as providing an appendix listing biomedical organizations without position documents.

Over several years the author compiled this extensive index, which is designed to help physicians, fellows, residents, interns, medical students, and paramedical personnel to drastically cut their research time. Information can be found with ease quickly, as the index lists organizations by country, medical practice areas, and the core areas of interest of each organization. Ideally suited as a hands-on reference text in clinics, hospitals, and medical libraries, this reference cuts through the overwhelming mountain of information to give medical professionals exactly the information they are searching for while providing a historical account of position documents, their growth, their continued use, and their efficacy.

Biomedical Organizations: A Worldwide Guide to Position Documents reveals the organizations with position statements on a wide variety of subjects, such as:


  • abortion

  • AIDS

  • cancer

  • diabetes

  • homosexuality

  • immunization

  • long-term care

  • midwives

  • malpractice

  • nutrition

  • ozone

  • the Persian Gulf war

Biomedical Organizations: A Worldwide Guide to Position Documents is a timesaving reference helpful to medical professionals, students, educators, and professional medical organizations.
