Details

The book is divided into three sections. The first section examines issues in relation to corporate governance in the private sector, with emphasis being placed on issues such as “Board Decision-Making,” “’Earnings Management and Audit Committee Effectiveness” and “Corporate Governance Failures.” These contributions are complemented by the second section, which looks at governance and risk issues affecting the public sector, with a focus being placed on “Public-Private Sector Partnering” and the impact of regulatory reform on the life sciences. Section three focuses on societal risk management in relation to health safety and the environment. In this context, contributions are presented in relation to major debates surrounding the “Rising Trends in Cancer Cases” throughout the world; the dilemmas surrounding “Medical Self Help,” “Mental Health Policy” and the use of “Information Technology in Health Care.” I hope readers will find this edited volume useful and stimulating.
