Abstract

This book was written to encourage nurses to become involved in the political process- by running for office, seeking appointments, or becoming active on some level in local government. The authors interviewed 46 nurses who hold or have run for public office- from Members of Congress to local aldermen. Theses nurses share their experiences on everything from getting informed on the issues, getting involved in a political party, presenting the right image, to fundraising. A chapter on nurses who have made use of the public arena in the past includes figures such as Lillian Wald, Lavinia Dock, and Margaret Sanger. Nurses have inside knowledge of health issues and the trust of the public. Here is a handbook that can help nurses realize their leadership potential.

Abstract

De ziekte van Aizheimer, is een, wat zijn oorzaken betreft, nog grotendeels onopgehelderde aandoening. Eenvoudig gezegd betreft zij een geleidelijk in gebreke blijven van de hersenen, waarbij niet de vitale centra voor ademhaling en bloedsomloop worden aangetast, maar de geestelijke functies. De ziekte van Alzheimer leidt tot een toenemende ontregeling van het herinneringsvermogen alsook tot een verarming aan ideeën, gedachten en begrip en stoornissen van bij voorbeeld spraak- en oriënteringsvermogen. Zij is de belangrijkste vorm van seniele dementie (geheugenverlies op latere leeftijd).Over de hele wereld is de ziekte van Alzheimer de laatste jaren in betekenis toegenomen, vooral als gevolg van de al tientallen jaren hoger wordende gemiddelde leeftijd in de westerse landen. Zij manifesteert zich immers met name op latere leeftijd. Soms wordt daarom ook al gesproken van een 'stille epidemie'of zelfs van 'de ziekte van de eeuw'.Omtrent de ziekte van Alzheimer behandelt dit boek vragen als:Wat is bekend over oorzaken van de ziekte van Alzheimer?Waarin wijkt zij af van het normale ouder worden van de hersenen?Welke behandelingsmogelijkheden zijn er tegenwoordig?Wat kan men zelf doen?Hoe zou de verpleging en verzorging moeten zijn?Welke problemen doen zich voor met betrekking tot de rechtspositie bij de Alzheimer-patiënt?De ziekte van Alzheimer wil op deze wijze een beter begrip en een positieve benadering mogelijk maken van de zware belasting, die het verlies van geestelijke vermogens voor alle betrokkenen inhoudt.

Abstract

"To Do No Harm is a study of the ways people experience serious and life-threatening illnesses, the types of suffering they endure, and how we can come to understand their lives. Alan C. Mermann describes a course at the Yale School of Medicine that uses patients as teachers for students, helping them learn the impact of disease upon the whole person. He covers suffering in body, mind, and spirit. The book also discusses the hopes and means for a fully realized life for the professional healthcare provider through compassionate care of the sick."--Jacket.

Abstract

Described as one of the foremost medical editorialists of our time, Sylvan Wcinberg, MD has authored this collection of highly acclaimed essays about the current state of modern American healthcare -- a paradoxical combination of the best and the worst -- hence the title, The Golden Age of Medical Science and the Dark Age of Healthcare Delivery. The last decades of the 20th century have seen spectacular progress in the science of medicine. In the field of cardiology, heart attacks that meant certain death only a short time ago can now be treated, enabling people to live active lives for many years. New discoveries in molecular biology and genetics will soon allow us to diagnose and treat patients in ways that only yesterday were the stuff of science fiction. However, paralleling these brilliant advances, there has been an equally dramatic deterioration in the delivery of healthcare to millions of Americans, caused in large part by the advent of the managed care health insurance industry.In an effort to control rising healthcare costs, the managed care-insurance complex has imposed harsh measures on hospitals, doctors, patients and university medical centers. The results have had a depressing and chilling effect on every aspect of American healthcare. Doctor's autonomy in making medical decisions has been abrogated. Doctor-patient relationships have been shattered. Many patients have lost access to specialists and to the doctors of their choice. Nursing and ancillary staffs and the length of hospital stays have been reduced, often to the detriment of patient care. Relationships between doctors and hospitals have become adversarial.These are the highly charged issues that SylvanWeinberg addresses in this important new addition to the medical literature and to the public dialogue. With his unique ability to cut to the core and frame critical questions, Dr. Weinberg-blends discussions of contemporary medical progress with incisive commentaries on the philosophic, political and socioeconomic forces that have changed not only medical practice, education and research but how every person in this country receives medical care.This new book will be important reading for doctors, patients, medical educators, hospital administrators, health insurance executives and everyone else who is concerned with bringing medical science and patient care into balance in the 21st century.
