Abstract
In Risk Prevention in Ophthalmology, many of the questions surrounding medical malpractice are answered clearly, concisely and pragmatically for physicians, by physicians. Written with an emphasis on clinical matters, this book shows ophthalmologists how to avoid lawsuits in the first place. What does "risk assessment" mean in the real world? How truly informed are your patients after signing your consent forms? Do your patients have reasonable expectations regarding outcomes? Are your history-taking and record keeping habits leaving you exposed? Are you sufficiently careful with documentation? What is quality assurance? Covering the legal issues for all of the areas of subspeciality in ophthalmology, Risk Prevention in Ophthalmology provides the busy clinician with the tools necessary to reduce not only the risk of potential lawsuits, but also insights for coping with actual ones.

Abstract
The Middle East represents the next growth market for the global biopharmaceutical industry but to date there has been limited information about the regulatory review processes employed in these countries. A thorough examination of the strategies currently being implemented by the Gulf States is considered critical to the future regulatory environment in this region. This book compares national and centralised procedure practices and key performance metrics, including current approval times, review practices and pharmacovigilance standards, in the seven Gulf States. Opportunities for an improved regulatory system are identified, which, if fully implemented, could have a significant impact on patients' access to new medicines. Pharmaceutical Regulatory Environment: Challenges & Opportunities in the Gulf Region is a must read for those interested in pharmaceutical regulation in the Gulf region.
