Nurses are faced with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Healthcare delivery models are transforming that require adaptive and flexible nurses. The primary role of the frontline nurse is providing patient care. To be successful in this role it requires numerous competencies supported by evidence-based data. Frontline bedside nurses are fundamental to the success of value-based care delivery models. These transformational models rely on robust nursing contributions for success. Most frontline nurses don't understand value-based care models and their role in promoting positive outcomes for reimbursement. This issue is a tool kit to empower our frontline nurses for challenges they are facing with transformations occurring at their bedside practice site. The articles will be a best practice handbook for frontline nurses by providing resources to develop clinical skills to provide safe, quality, and accountable patient care needed for new healthcare delivery models.

Ein bemerkenswertes B?chlein; flott zu lesen, hochaktuell und trotzdem unterhaltsam. Gerhard Gottschalk, einer der prominentesten zeitgen?ssischen Mikrobiologen erkl?rt hier die Hintergr?nde der EHEC und MRSA Epidemien. Trotz des ernsten Themas liest sich das Buch leicht und man sp?rt keinen erhobenen Zeigefinger. Daf?r lernt man erstaunliches, z.B. dass das EHEC zu Grunde liegende -harmlose- Darmbakterium Escherichia Coli schon sehr lange auf der Erde existiert und ein vielfaches l?nger in den Ged?rmen von Dinosauriern als denen von Menschen hauste. Auch ?ber MRSA, ein Bakterium mit dem mittlerweile eine erschreckend hohe Anzahl von Patienten in Kliniken konfrontiert wird, erf?hrt der Leser einiges, vor allem wie sich dieser urspr?nglich ebenfalls relativ harmlose Keim zu so einem gef?hrlichen Dauerbewohner in vielen Krankenh?usern entwickeln konnte, und warum wir solche Schwierigkeiten haben, das Problem in den Griff zu bekommen. Last but not least ist dieses Buch ein sch?nes Beispiel daf?r, dass Evolution kein abstrakter Vorgang in ferner Vergangenheit ist, sondern 'live` unser allt?gliches Leben tiefgreifender beeinflussen kann als uns das zuweilen lieb ist.

Ein Buch über das Sterben, das das Leben lehrt Die Medizin scheint über Krankheit und Tod zu triumphieren, doch sterben wir so trostlos wie nie zuvor. Der Bestsellerautor und renommierte Arzt Atul Gawande schreibt in seinem beeindruckenden Buch über das, was am Ende unseres Lebens wirklich zählt. Ungewöhnlich offen spricht er darüber, was es bedeutet, alt zu werden, wie man mit Gebrechen und Krankheiten umgehen kann und was wir an unserem System ändern müssen, um unser Leben würdevoll zu Ende zu bringen. Ein mutiges und weises Buch eines großartigen Autors, voller Geschichten und eigener Erfahrungen, das uns hilft, die Geschichte unseres Lebens gut zu Ende zu erzählen. »Dieses Buch ist nicht nur weise und sehr bewegend, sondern gerade in unserer Zeit unbedingt notwendig und sehr aufschlussreich.« Oliver Sacks »Die medizinische Betreuung ist mehr auf Heilung ausgelegt als auf das Sterben. Dies ist Atuls Gawandes stärkstes und bewegendstes Buch.« Malcolm Gladwell

Patients with intellectual disability (ID) can benefit from the full range of mental health services. To ensure that psychiatric assessment, diagnosis and treatment interventions are relevant and effective; individuals with ID should be evaluated and treated within the context of their developmental framework. Behavior should be viewed as a form of communication. Individuals with ID often present with behavioral symptoms complicated by limited expressive language skills and undiagnosed medical conditions. Many training programs do not include focused study of individuals with ID, despite the fact that patients with ID will be seen by virtually every mental health practitioner. In this book, the authors present a framework for competent assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in individuals with ID. Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability is a resource guide for psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and other prescribers treating patients with ID. It is a supplemental text for psychiatry residents, medical students, psychology graduate students, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, behavior support specialists and nurses. To assist the practicing clinician the book includes: Clinical vignettes Clinical pearls Charts for quick reference Issues concerning medications and poly-pharmacy Altered diagnostic criteria specific for use with individuals with ID There are no evidence-based principles dedicated to psychotropic medication use in ID, but consensus guidelines address the high prevalence of poly-pharmacy. Altered diagnostic criteria have been published which accommodate less self-report and incorporate collateral information; this book reviews the literature on psychotropic medications, consensus guidelines, and population-specific diagnostic criteria sets. Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability also includes: Interviewing techniques and assessment tips for all levels of communicative ability as well as for nonverbal individuals Assessment of aggression to determine etiology and formulate a treatment plan Overview of types of psychotherapy and suggested alterations for each to increase efficacy Relevant legal issues for caregivers and treatment providers The detective work involved in mental health assessment of individuals with ID is challenging yet rewarding. The highest quality mental health treatment limits hospital days, improves quality of life and often allows individuals to live in the least restrictive environments. Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability is a must have resource for clinicians treating the ID population.

Essentials of Personality Disorders draws on core material from The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Personality Disorders, covering the essentials of the topic in an abridged version and including the recent growth of knowledge in the neurosciences and new technologies being used to tackle the treatment of complex psychiatric disorders. In this volume, 35 international authorities -- all contributors to the parent text -- offer a balance of theory, research, and treatment geared toward ready application to a busy practice. Essentials of Personality Disorders provides half of the chapters found in the larger work, with a focus on material that is both up-to-date and useful to practicing clinicians. It first reviews the evolution of the personality disorders component in successive editions of DSM, along with major theories that have influenced thinking about their nature. A succinct guide to clinical evaluation then presents the defining features of DSM-IV-TR personality disorders, complementary approaches to clinical assessment, patterns of Axis I and Axis II disorder comorbidity, and clinical courses and outcomes. Chapters on etiology reflect the most recent data on epidemiology, progress in understanding underlying neurobiology, a developmental perspective on recognizing early patterns of behavior suggestive of future disorders, and the relevance of childhood experiences -- particularly stress -- to the development of maladaptive personality traits. Eleven chapters on treatment then offer guidelines for determining the appropriate intensity of treatment for patients, followed by a presentation of therapeutic options and considerations ranging from group treatment to boundary issues. Included in this section: A chapter on the application of mentalization-based therapy in treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder that offers an approach to attachment via a model that views this disorder as dysfunction in self-regulation. Core elements of dialectical behavior therapy, including both individual and group interventions to address parasuicidal behaviors. Emphasis on the necessity of explicitly considering alliance building across all treatment modalities. Recommendations for negotiating collaborative treatments, taking into account patients engaged in several modalities at the same time. Evidence of the association of suicidal behavior and personality disorders, examining risk factors and discussing clinical approaches to management. In a concluding chapter, the volume editors and experts in this field summarize current controversies, look ahead to DSM-V, and speculate about future directions. Presenting the essentials of a definitive text, Essentials of Personality Disorders is a practical volume that puts critical information on these vexing conditions at your fingertips.

Wir alle haben schon gespendet. Doch geht es uns dabei wirklich um die Hilfe für andere? Oder wollen wir eher unser Gewissen beruhigen, ein wohliges Gefühl verspüren oder spendabel wirken? Millionäre lassen Kunstmuseen errichten, statt Verhungernden zu helfen, und Normalbürger geben Beträge, die nicht einmal die Bearbeitungsgebühren decken. Wer dagegen so viel Gutes wie möglich tun will, sollte besser auf seinen Verstand hören als auf seinen Bauch. Diese simple Idee ist Ausgangspunkt einer neuen sozialen Bewegung – des effektiven Altruismus. Peter Singer, einer ihrer Gründerväter, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie effektives Spenden möglich und warum es richtig ist. Gestützt auf harte Fakten und neue wissenschaftliche Methoden, können wir heute in vielen Fällen sagen, welcher gute Zweck der bessere ist. Gleiches gilt für die Wahl der Mittel: Auch hier orientieren sich effektive Altruisten daran, was den größten Nutzen verspricht. Um mehr spenden zu können, beschränken sich manche von ihnen auf das Allernötigste, andere geben gar freiwillig einen Teil ihrer selbst, etwa eine Niere. Effektive Altruisten sind aber weder Heilige noch Masochisten: Man darf sie sich als glückliche Menschen vorstellen. Singers Buch ist ein Aufruf zu einem in doppelter Hinsicht gelungenen Leben: Indem man für andere das Bestmögliche tut, gibt man dem eigenen Leben Sinn.
