Essential Community Medicine:(including relevant social services)
Mintzberg begins in part one by confronting myths about health care, including: We have a system of health care Health care institutions can be fixed with more heroic leadership The health care system can be fixed by more administrative engineering The health care system can be fixed by more categorizing and commodifying to facilitate more calculating The health care system can be fixed with increased competition Health care organizations can be fixed by running them more like businesses Part two examines how health care is organized, in relation to what we know about differentiation, separation, and integration in organizations and systems in general. Mintzberg shows that in health care the inclination has been to do an awful lot more differentiating than integrating. This has resulted in all sorts of excessive separations: curtains across the specialties, sheets over the patients, and walls and floors between the administrators. The favored form of organizing health care - the professional organization - is the source of its great strength as well as its debilitating weakness. Part three then offers guidelines to reframe the core components of health care: strategy, organization, scale, ownership, management, and the ´´system´´ itself. For example, managing has to be about care more than cure, and organizing has to favor communityship over leadership, collaboration over competition. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Social and Community Medicine for Students: Una MacLean
John R. Brinkley (July 8, 1885-May 26, 1942) became nationally known as the ´´goat gland doctor´´ for his controversial medical practice that promised virility for his male patients. He was a pioneer in radio broadcasting and advertising, as he promoted his services to his large listening audience. Despite detractors and critics in the medical community thoroughly discrediting his methods, Brinkley operated clinics and hospitals in several states for two decades. When opposition from the organized medical community resulted in the revocation of his radio and medical licenses he turned to politics, with two failed runs for the governorship of Kansas. Brinkley´s rise to fame and fortune was as precipitous and was his eventual fall. At the height of his career, he had amassed millions of dollars, yet he died sick and nearly penniless as a result of a number of malpractice, wrongful death, and fraud suits brought against him.

Jean Watson´s first edition of Nursing, now considered a classic, introduced the science of human caring and quickly became one of the most widely used and respected sources of conceptual models for nursing. This completely new edition offers a contemporary update and the most current perspectives on the evolution of the original philosophy and science of caring from the field´s founding scholar. A core concept for nurses and the professional and non-professional people they interact with, ´´care´´ is one of the field´s least understood terms, enshrouded in conflicting expectations and meanings. Although its usages vary among cultures, caring is universal and timeless at the human level, transcending societies, religions, belief systems, and geographic boundaries, moving from Self to Other to community and beyond, affecting all of life. This new edition reflects on the universal effects of caring and connects caring with love as the primordial moral basis both for the philosophy and science of caring practices and for healing itself. The book is published by University Press of Colorado. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Ann M. Richardson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/redw/000140de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

Chronic pain has become an international epidemic - an estimated one billion people across the globe suffer every day. And, what Dr. Mitchell Yass has found over his 20-year career is that many of these people suffer needlessly. While the current medical model for treating pain isn´t helping, there is hope - and that´s what this program is about. In The Pain Cure Rx, Dr. Mitchell Yass presents the Yass Method, an alternative model of treatment that can resolve pain quickly and effectively without surgery or medication. While working with more than 14,000 patients, Dr. Yass realized that many cases of chronic pain are the result of misdiagnosis and thus improper treatment. In the medical community today, most chronic pain is attributed to a structural problem, such as a herniated disc, stenosis, a meniscal tear, or arthritis. But Dr. Yass has found that in about 90 percent of these cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance - a condition that´s easy to treat on your own with very little equipment. The Yass Method focuses on getting the proper diagnosis - finding the true source of the pain - and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief. In this recording, Dr. Yass looks at the most common areas where people experience pain - the neck, low back, mid-back, gluteal region, knee, shoulder, and hip - and lays out simple tests that examine things like range of motion, flexibility, walking patterns, and posture that listeners can do in the comfort of their own homes. He teaches them how to use this information, along with an analysis of their symptoms, to identify if their pain is in fact muscular rather than structural. If it is structural, they can choose surgery, knowing that the outcome will likely be good. But if the pain is muscular, they can use the easy, step-by-step exercises and routines referenced in this program - and shown in videos on his website - to get the pain resolution they´re searching for.

Approximately 730,000 first-ever strokes occur in the United States each year. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and in most Western countries. However, approximately 80-90% of patients survive their stroke, often with substantial motor dysfunction that compromises their ability to perform valued activities. Stroke is the most frequent cause of permanent disability in adults worldwide. Average survival following stroke is eight years in the United States. This calculates to a stroke survivor prevalence of 5.7 million persons. A recent review of randomized controlled trials in treatment alternatives (in over 1,000 stroke patients), indicates that rehabilitation provides improvement in function, when compared to no treatment or control. Yet, superiority of one type of therapy over another could not be distinguished, and therefore the specific choice of therapy was difficult to justify over another type of treatment. Consequently, there are reservations in the medical community concerning the benefit of various types of therapy. So, although we have progressed from ´´do nothing´´ to ´´do something´´ is the solution to ´´do anything´´?Despite evidence suggesting that therapy may be useful in brain restoration and in the rehabilitation of patients with stroke, there is little information available describing the precise nature of interventions provided by therapists. Little evidence determines which patients with stroke should receive motor therapy, what elements those therapies should contain, or when they should be implemented. In addition, results are limited, and functional gains after stroke are often minimal. Thus, identifying interventions that can improve motor function remains a priority. This book will provide an overview of the current understanding of modern rehabilitation therapies and the effects on plasticity and recovery of motor function in stroke. ungekürzt.
