There will always be a need for professionals to work collaboratively if they are to provide the highest standard of care. Interprofessional working encourages practitioners to understand the roles of other professionals and to learn from each other, as well as from service users and carers, to ensure the full benefit of this collaboration is realised. It is an essential element of both education and practice for today's professionals. Interprofessional Working in Health and Social Care discusses the rationale, skills and conditions required for interprofessional working. In addition, it provides an overview of the roles and perspectives of different health professionals across a broad range of expertise: education, housing, medicine, midwifery, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, police, probation, radiography, social work and youth work. The second edition: • Offers a broad variety of case studies from a range of fi elds and settings. • Includes a new chapter dedicated to interprofessional working with service users and carers. • Looks forward, offering brand new content on new and emerging roles such as specialist paramedics and approved mental health practitioners. This book is a valuable tool for students and practitioners across the health and social care discipline, employing engaging case studies and reflective activities to support learning about interprofessional and interagency collaboration. Erratum: please note the term 'Approved Mental Health Practitioner' has been used in error, instead of 'Approved Mental Health Professional'. This will be corrected as soon as possible on the next reprint and the e-book version has been corrected.

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

What to do when treatment becomes trauma Of increasing concern to all health professionals is the mental and emotional trauma that can result from adverse medical experiences ranging from life-threatening events to even routine medical procedures. This groundbreaking book is the first to conceptualize the psychological aspects of medical trauma and provide mental health and health care professionals with models they can use to intervene when treatment becomes trauma. The book delivers systems-level strategies for supporting patients and their families who experience distress in the medical setting or as a result of life-threatening or life-altering diagnoses and procedures. Reflecting the growing trend toward interprofessional practice and training in health care and initiatives toward patient-centered care, the book also describes models that promote the seamless integration of mental health professionals into the health care team. The book reflects the PPACA mandate to integrate mental health services into health care in order to both ensure the psychological and emotional well-being of patients and to provide support and guidance to health care professionals. Using an inclusive model of medical trauma, the book examines the effects and complexity of the trauma experience within the medical setting; addresses patient, medical staff, and procedural risk factors regarding specific level 1, 2, and 3 traumas; discusses the effects of environment and medical staff interactions; and covers intervention and prevention. The book also highlights examples of health care systems and organizations that have successfully applied innovative ideas for treating the whole person. Extensive case studies addressing the three levels of medical trauma illustrate its effects and how they could have been better managed. Key Features: Addresses psychological trauma resulting from adverse medical experiences—the first book to do so Provides effective models for addressing trauma in health care based on maternal health protocols from NCSWH Includes effective new models, protocols, and best practices for all mental health and health care professionals Presents extensive case examples of levels 1, 2, and three medical trauma Disseminates valuable resources and screening and measurement tools
