National expenditures for medical care in the months and days preceding death are enormous. But we do not know whether that money is buying good quality care or optimizing the quality of life of those dying, or whether the situation is getting better or worse over time. The information that exists “describing death” at a national level – though some of it is very informative – is fragmentary. This report recommends ways to fill the information gaps by better use of existing nationally-representative data, and through some new measures, in particular, a new, ongoing National Mortality Followback Survey. The aim is to allow us to benchmark where we are today as a society, and what goals we can set to minimize pain and suffering and maximize the quality of life of all of us who will die in the years to come.

The crucial interdependence between humans and their environment is explored and illuminated in this revealing overview of the major environmental issues facing society in the twenty-first century. With attention to detail and cogent language, the author describes how human health and well-being are inextricably bound up in the web of interrelationships that characterize life on this planet. The presentation combines an overall ecological concern with specific elements related to personal and community health, giving readers a clear sense of how todays environmental issues directly impact their own lives. New to the seventh edition is a chapter on clean energy alternatives that evaluates the long-term potential of the most promising renewable energy technologies as well as short-term strategies to increase energy efficiency. The discussion of global climate change has been significantly updated to reflect the latest assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with regard to evidence of global warming, mitigation strategies, and adaptation measures, as well as an up-to-date summary of ongoing international efforts to negotiate binding treaties that would produce meaningful reductions in greenhouse gases. Our Global Environment is widely praised by students and faculty for its clear, compelling presentation. Abundant photographs and illustrations highlight salient issues and clarify trends, while boxed inserts in every chapter contain timely examples of general concepts presented in the chapters.

This book describes the authors’ standard or ‘best’ practices used in writing regul- ed clinical documents for the drug and biologics industry. The fundamental premise of this book is that the end (documents submitted to a health authority) is dep- dent on the beginning (the planning and strategy that go into organizing written documentation). Each regulatory document inherently exists within a constellation of related documents. This book attempts to show the relationships between and among these documents and suggests strategies for organizing and writing these documents to maximize ef?ciency while developing clear and concise text. At all times, and irrespective of applicable laws and guidelines, good communication skills and a sense of balance are essential to adequately, accurately, and clearly describe a product’s characteristics. At no time should the reader perceive these suggestions to be the only viable solution to writing regulatory documents nor should the reader expect that these suggestions guarantee product success. The audience for this book is the novice medical writer, or those who would like to explore or enhance regulatory-writing skills. We assume the reader will have a basic understanding of written communication, but little experience in applying this skill to the task of regulatory writing. Extensive knowledge of science, clinical me- cine, mathematics, or regulatory affairs law is not required to use the best practices described in this book.
