The purpose of this book is to help nurses, midwives and healthprofessionals to better understand how the work of clinicallaboratories contributes to patient care. It answers thefollowing questions: Why is this test being ordered on my patient? What sort of sample is required? How is that sample obtained? And most importantly: What is the significance of the test result for mypatient? Retaining its accessible and user-friendly style, the aim ofthis book remains the same: to provide nurses with as much relevantinformation as possible about the most commonly requestedlaboratory rests. This is not a book about laboratory technique -its focus is on the clinical significance of test results, andtherefore the patient. The third edition is morecomprehensive in terms of the number of testsdiscussed, incorporates colour to aid the accessibility,and includes more paediatric content.

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is a well-known text that provides guidelines for over 40 common nursing procedures carried out by carers in a variety of settings. The development of competence in these practices is one of the most important aspects of pre-registration programmes, and this is one of the few UK-based texts that takes an educational approach to these practices as opposed to a purely procedure-driven approach. As in previous editions, the emphasis is on a holistic approach with the recognition that each patient is a unique individual. Each procedure contains rationale and information for patient education in addition to step by step guidance. Skills explained step by step to facilitate learning The comprehensive range of procedures including advanced practices will give readers confidence when they begin clinical work Relevance to hospital and community settings makes it applicable to a wide audience The rationale sections link to the evidence-base thereby ensuring best practice

Wie können Unternehmen mit unerwarteten Situationen umgehen? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, untersuchen die Autoren sogenannte High Reliability Organizations (HROs) - Organisationen, die absolut zuverlässig arbeiten müssen, wie z. B. Fluglotsen oder Feuerwehrmannschaften. An ihren spezifischen Handlungsabläufen kann sich jede Organisation orientieren, um unerwartete Ereignisse und Entwicklungen besser zu verstehen und zu bewältigen. Wie die Methoden der HROs sich in der Unternehmenspraxis umsetzen lassen, zeigt der lösungsorientierte Managementansatz.

Studierende und Forscher verschiedener Disziplinen, die am Entwickeln einer Theorie interessiert sind, stellen sich nach der Datenerhebung oft die Frage: Wie komme ich zu einer Theorie, die sich auf die empirische Realität gründet? Die Autoren beantworten diese und andere Fragen, die sich bei der qualitativen Interpretation von Daten ergeben. Auf klare und einfache Art geschrieben vermittelt das Buch Schritt für Schritt die grundlegenden Kenntnisse und Verfahrensweisen der "grounded theory" (datenbasierte Theorie), so daß es besonders für Personen interessant ist, die sich zum ersten Mal mit der Theorienbildung anhand qualitativer Datenanalyse beschäftigen. Das Buch gliedert sich in drei Teile. Teil I bietet einen Überblick über die Denkweise, die der "grounded theory" zugrunde liegt. Teil II stellt die speziellen Techniken und Verfahrensweisen genau dar, wie z.B. verschiedene Kodierungsarten. In Teil III werden zusätzliche Verfahrensweisen erklärt und Evaluationskriterien genannt.

In sub-Saharan Africa female infertility is a major public health problem as well as a human rights issue, with far-reaching consequences for the individual, the couple and, to a lesser extent, the health system. Although infertility is a traumatic experience in the lives of nearly all women who are confronted with it, this health problem is often neglected in reproductive health programs. This neglect is due partly to the lack of adequate treatment interventions and partly to the orientation of many programs towards population growth. This study of the levels, trends, causes and consequences of female infertility cuts through a range of disciplines. Infertility is discussed from the standpoint of demography, clinical medicine, epidemiology, anthropology and public health. The linkages of infertility to sexual and marital behaviour, to sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS, to maternal health and family planning are discussed.
