Medical informatics has revolutionized healthcare in recent years, and one of the major challenges now faced by health professionals everywhere is the further improvement of healthcare by making more effective use of the data from biomedical informatics, not least for education and decision support. This book presents the 52 full papers (accepted from 95 initial submissions) delivered at the Special Topic Conference of the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI STC 2018), held in Zagreb, Croatia, on 15 and 16 October 2018. The EFMI STC is one of Europe`s leading conferences for the sharing of current professional and scientific knowledge in health informatics processes, and the topics covered here have been broadly divided into two sections; decision support and education. Offering an overview of current medical informatics research, this book will undoubtedly prove invaluable for the professional development of healthcare practitioners, as well as contributing to knowledge sustainability within the field of medical informatics.

This is the first book on resuscitation in the UK written for nurses that recognizes and explores their unique perspective. The European Resuscitation Council Guidelines of 1997 are used as the basis for the scientific aspects of the nursing role, and the book also addresses the art of nursing through exploration of the human consequences and the ethical and legal issues of resuscitation. All nurses should know how to resuscitate, as they may become involved in resuscitation attempts at any time. This book is an invaluable companion to nurses working in community hospitals and in primary care as well as to those practising in critical care units or the busy wards of acute hospitals.

It is a very special honour for me to be able to present this handbook of medical oncology, which under diverse headings and origins covers such a vast spectrum of experience. I be lieve the reader will be struck in particular by the impressive volume of information available, especially with regard to childhood tumours, which represent, today, an immense "lab oratory of hope". It is in this very field that we oncologists have been able to obtain the most consoling results in recent years. I feel sure that all those who read these chapters will find that their oncological competence is enriched and also in a certain sense that their wish to contribute to progress in can cer research and treatment has been renewed. In conclusion, my most heartfelt congratulations go to the authors for the excellent job they have done, as well as my ad miration for having been able to concentrate so much pre cious and innovative information into so little space. Umberto Veronesi Preface Since 1976, the VICC has been holding chemotherapy courses in all parts of the world, excluding North America and Australia. The Manual of Cancer Chemotherapy, origi nally devised as a didactic tool to be used by course partici pants, expanded itself in the successive editions to a compre hensive, although schematic, textbook of medical oncology.

The book includes terms that are the concern of all nurses and terms that are relevant to specific areas of practice. The focused nursing information is supplemented by the inclusion of some applied anatomy & physiology, important items from the medical and surgical specialties, and some basic psychology and sociology. Numerous in-depth entries explore issues rather than just provide a basic definition. There are, of course, a proportion of shorter definitions. The intentions are to use references in the in-depth entries and provide readers with other sources of information on the topic. Because the book does not attempt to cover other related areas the opportunity exists to provide comprehensive evidence-based information about important nursing issues. The style will is dictated by having an A-Z format but the intention is to highlight material in some of the in-depth entries. This is achieved with separate Practice application boxed items adjacent to the entry. Entries explore issues, rather than giving just a basic definition Pocket book format A quick reference covering a wide range of topics It is very nursing focused Generously illustrated Edited by an experienced nurse editor with a general, wide ranging knowledge of nursing Combines the best material from a range of proven Elsevier publications
