    Haptic feedback stimulates the skin and is useful for conveying information across the human body. Combining haptic feedback with movement sensing and computation in real-time can create a rich and diverse system for characterizing and retraining human movement. This thesis presents haptic gait retraining as a conservative treatment for individuals with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Wearable haptic feedback devices, which either vibrate or stretch the skin, are worn on the body and used to inform kinematic changes during walking. The focus of gait retraining is to shift loading away from the arthritic medial compartment of the knee by reducing the knee adduction moment - a clinically relevant measure that has been linked to pain, incidence, severity, and progression of medial compartment knee osteoathritis. Thus, training individuals with knee osteoarthritis to walk in a way that reduces the knee adduction moment has the potential to reduce knee pain, improve function, and slow osteoarthritis progression. Four experiments were conducted to explore the viability of haptic gait retraining. During all experiments, subjects walked on an instrumented treadmill while motion capture data was streamed in real-time and wearable haptic feedback was used to inform gait changes. In the first experiment, subjects received feedback of the knee adduction moment measurement and were given freedom to make kinematic changes to lower the knee adduction moment. All subjects demonstrated the ability to make gait modifications to acheive this goal, though some chose awkward gait patterns. In the second experiment, haptic feedback was used to inform changes to the foot progression angle as subjects were trained to ``toe-in'' more than they normally did. Toe-in gait proved to be an easy-to-learn gait pattern which reduced the knee adduction moment and looked natural. The purpose of the third experiment was to train simultaneous changes to multiple kinematic gait parameters. Subjects received haptic feedback for trunk sway, tibia, and foot progression angles to inform new gait patterns based on correlations between the knee adduction moment and each kinematic parameter. Subjects demonstrated large reductions in the knee adduction moment comparable to more invasive surgical interventions such as high tibial osteotomy. In the final experiment individuals with persistent knee pain and clinically diagnosed knee osteoarthritis participated in a six week gait retraining program to assess learning retention and symptom changes. Subjects demonstrated learning retention and at the end of the six weeks reported improvements in knee pain and function, which were significantly greater than from the expected placebo effect. This thesis shows that haptic gait retraining is a promising conservative treatment option for individuals suffering from medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Haptic gait retraining has the potential to alter walking patterns which could over time reduce knee pain, slow osteoarthritis progression, and ultimately improve quality of life.

    "Wallach's Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests, 10th Edition serves as a practical guide to the use of laboratory tests which aids physicians in using tests more effectively and efficiently by offering test outcomes, possible meanings, differential diagnosis, and summaries of tests available. The book is organized into 2 sections. The first section is devoted to disease states. Where appropriate, a patient's chief complaint and/or physical findings are initially presented with subsequent discussions focused on discrete disease states as they relate to a patient's chief complaint. The second section is devoted to an alphabetical listing of laboratory tests while stressing the integration of the clinical laboratory in the clinical decision making process. Test sensitivity, specific and possible and negative probabilities are included whenever appropriate. Microbiology tests are listed in a separate chapter"--Provided by publisher.

    In the relatively few decades since the introduction of HIV into the human population, variants of the virus have diverged to such an extent that, were the discussion about something other than viruses, said variants could easily be classified as different species. This book will consider these evolutionary variations, as well as the different and, at times, opposing theories attempting to explain them. It will compare and contrast the ways in which the immune system and drugs affect the virus's evolution, and the implications of these for vaccine development. The issue will be explored and explained through "ecological genetics," which postulates that all living organisms have, besides rivals, enemies. This is divergent from the more traditional school of "population genetics," which emphasizes that evolution occurs among rival species (or variants thereof) that compete for niches or resources in a fixed, unreactive environment. Both models will be formulated using mathematical models, which will be included in the book. Finally, it will consider the possibilities for designing a vaccine that blocks HIV from escaping the immune system.

    Wastewater analysis is a rapidly developing scientific discipline with the potential for monitoring real-time population-level trends in illicit drug use. Originally used in the 1990s to monitor the environmental impact of liquid household waste, the method has since been used to estimate illicit drug consumption in different cities (Daughton, 2001; Zuccato et al., 2008; van Nuijs et al., 2011). It involves sampling a source of wastewater, such as a sewage influent to a wastewater treatment plant. This allows scientists to estimate the quantity of drugs consumed in a community by measuring the levels of illicit drugs and their metabolites excreted in urine (Zuccato et al., 2008).

    "Diseases related to inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene are a huge burden in developing countries. It is estimated that 88% of diarrhoeal disease is caused by unsafe water supply, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2004c). Many schools serve communities that have a high prevalence of diseases related to inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene, and where child malnutrition and other underlying health problems are common. Schools, particularly those in rural areas, often completely lack drinking-water and sanitation and handwashing facilities; alternatively, where such facilities do exist they are often inadequate in both quality and quantity. Schools with poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, and intense levels of person-to-person contact, are high-risk environments for children and staff, and exacerbate children's particular susceptibility to environmental health hazards. Children's ability to learn may be affected by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in several ways. These include helminth infections (which affect hundreds of millions of school-age children), long-term exposure to chemical contaminants in water (e.g. lead and arsenic), diarrhoeal diseases and malaria infections, all of which force many schoolchildren to be absent from school. Poor environmental conditions in the classroom can also make both teaching and learning very difficult. Girls and boys are likely to be affected in different ways by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in schools, and this may contribute to unequal learning opportunities. Sometimes, girls and female teachers are more affected than boys because the lack of sanitary facilities means that they cannot attend school during menstruation. The international policy environment increasingly reflects these issues. Providing adequate levels of water supply, sanitation and hygiene in schools is of direct relevance to the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals of achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and reducing child mortality. It is also supportive of other goals, especially those on major diseases and infant mortality." - p. iii

    Irrigated agriculture, a vital component of general agriculture, supplies fruits, vegetables, and cereals consumed by humans and grains fed to animals. Consequently, agriculture is the largest user of fresh water globally, and irrigation practices in many parts of the world are biologically, economically, and socially unsustainable. Water management should balance the need for agricultural water and the need for a sustainable environment. Water-use efficiency is the prime challenge in worldwide farming practices where problems of water shortages are widespread. Currently, agriculture is undergoing significant changes in innovative irrigation, fertilizer technology, and agronomic expertise. These elements constitute a vital platform for sustainable agricultural success and for preventing environmental damage. This review presents several processes linked to environmental irrigation, balancing environmental protection with improved agricultural production.

    The goal of this study is to assist the increasing number of decision-makers in search of the ideal way to create and implement an effective obesity intervention. We carried out a review of systematic reviews of obesity prevention and reduction interventions. This review examined components of studies targeting weight loss to identify which components are most strongly associated with positive results. Understanding the effects of intervention components as well as the intervention as a whole allows program planners to best tailor their review to their environment and target population.

    "As women of childbearing age have become heavier, the trade-off between maternal and child health created by variation in gestational weight gain has become more difficult to reconcile. Weight Gain During Pregnancy responds to the need for a reexamination of the 1990 Institute of Medicine guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy. It builds on the conceptual framework that underscored the 1990 weight gain guidelines and addresses the need to update them through a comprehensive review of the literature and independent analyses of existing databases. The book explores relationships between weight gain during pregnancy and a variety of factors (e.g., the mother's weight and height before pregnancy) and places this in the context of the health of the infant and the mother, presenting specific, updated target ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and guidelines for proper measurement. New features of this book include a specific range of recommended gain for obese women. Weight Gain During Pregnancy is intended to assist practitioners who care for women of childbearing age, policy makers, educators, researchers, and the pregnant women themselves to understand the role of gestational weight gain and to provide them with the tools needed to promote optimal pregnancy outcomes."--Back cover.

    This book represents a daring and rarely attempted endeavor to bridge the gap between histopathology and molecular medicine in that cutting-edge molecular findings are seamlessly integrated into the key morphological features. This volume also includes discussions of short lists of organ-based benign lesions with concerning morphological features. Presented in the differential diagnosis section, they will not only serve as useful checklists for the surgical pathologist who is seriously contemplating a diagnosis of malignancy due to the observation of some cytological or histological atypia, but also help hone the key features of each malignant atypia. Well-Differentiated Malignancies: New Perspectives provides an innovative resource on the difficult topic of well-differentiated malignancies for pathology residents, fellows and for those already in clinical practice.

    This book brings together two bodies of knowledge - wellbeing and recovery. Wellbeing and 'positive' approaches are increasingly influencing many areas of society. Recovery in mental illness has a growing empirical evidence base. For the first time, overlaps and cross-fertilisation opportunities between the two bodies of knowledge are identified. International experts present innovations taking place within the mental health system, which include wellbeing-informed new therapies, e-health approaches and peer-led recovery communities. State-of-the-art applications of wellbeing to the wider community are also described, across education, employment, parenting and city planning. This book will be of interest to anyone connected with the mental health system, especially people using and working in services, and clinical and administrators leaders, and those interested in using research from the mental health system in the wider community.

    Axonal degeneration is a pivotal pathological event in most CNS and PNS diseases, but the molecular mechanisms that control this process remain unclear. Expression of the Wallerian degeneration slow (WldS) transgene robustly delays axon degeneration in various injury models and attenuate disease progression in many neurodegenerative conditions, indicating a common mechanism of axonal self-destruction in traumatic injuries and chronic degenerative events. In this thesis, I examined the mechanism of WldS axon protection as a window to understand the molecular events that orchestrate this axonal self-destruction program. In the first part of my thesis, I demonstrated that continuous, local WldS enzymatic activity in the axon, independent of nuclear gene transcription, is required to confer axonal protection. Furthermore, I showed that injured axons are not immediately committed to degeneration, but rather there is a critical period of 4-5hrs after injury in which the course of degeneration can be reversed. The presence of this latency period before the injured axons irreversibly commit to degeneration suggest that axonal degeneration can be attenuated or halted altogether even long after an injury has occurred. In the second part of the thesis, I investigated the signaling events and mechanisms that are responsible for translating WldS activity into axonal protection. I showed that NAD+, a metabolite of WldS enzymatic activity and a known redox cofactor in the mitochondria, is sufficient and specific to confer WldS-like axon protection. However, WldS axonal protection does not require the axonal mitochondria or involve changes in the bioenergy levels of the axon. I further demonstrated that independently increasing expression of Ca2+ buffering proteins in subcellular compartments is sufficient to delay axonal degeneration, suggesting that enhancement of Ca2+ buffering capacity in axonal subcellular compartments may be one mechanism by which WldS activity or NAD+ confers axonal protection. Finally, comparing the metabolomics profile of WT vs. WldS neurons reveals candidates in mediating NAD+ dependent regulation of intra-axonal Ca2+, and presents potential therapeutic targets to delay axon degeneration. In the third part of my thesis, I investigated the relationship between developmental axonal outgrowth, synaptic targeting and axon regeneration. Using retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) as a model system, I profiled the developmental expression of RGC genes from early embryonic to early postnatal development, a period that was previously shown to trigger a genetic switch to significantly slow the axonal growth rate. In particular, I showed that cyp1b1, a gene implicated in congenital glaucoma, is a potent source of retinoic acid during early RGC development and enhances RGC survival by sustaining retinoic acid production. In addition, several other genes from the expression profiling have been found by others to be involved in axonal regeneration after injury. Together, the findings provide a rich database for understanding the molecular signatures that control the development of retinal ganglion cells, and help uncover genetic factors that regulate axonal growth, targeting and regeneration.

    "Primary care has come into the limelight with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the unchecked and unsustainable rise in American health care expenditures, and the crest of Baby Boomers who are now Medicare-eligible and entering the most health care-intensive period of their lives. Yet how much is really known about primary care? What Matters in Medicine: Lessons from a Life in Primary Care is a look at the past, present, and future of general practice, which is not only the predecessor to the modern primary care movement, but its foundation. Through memoir and conversation, Dr. David Loxterkamp reflects on the heroes and role models who drew him to family medicine and on his many years in family practice in a rural Maine community, and provides a prescription for change in the way that doctors and patients approach their shared contract for good health and a happy life. This book will be useful to those on both sides of primary care, doctors and patients alike." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Being a patient is a unique interpersonal experience but it is also a universal human experience. The relationships formed when we are patients can also teach some of life's most important lessons, and these relationships provide a special window into ethics, especially the ethics of healthcare professionals. This book answers two basic questions: As patients see it, what things allow relationships with healthcare providers to become therapeutic? What can this teach us about healthcare ethics? This volume presents detailed descriptions and analyses of 50 interviews with 58 patients, representing a wide spectrum of illnesses and clinician specialties. The authors argue that the structure, rhythm, and horizon of routine patient care are ultimately grounded in patient vulnerability and clinician responsiveness. From the short interview segments, the longer vignettes and the full patient stories presented here emerge the neglected dimensions of healthcare and healthcare ethics. What becomes visible is an ethics of everyday interdependence, with mutual responsibilities that follow from this moral symbiosis. Both professional expressions of healthcare ethics and the field of bioethics need to be informed and reformed by this distinctive, more patient-centered, turn in how we understand both patient care as a whole and the ethics of care more specifically. The final chapters present revised codes of ethics for health professionals, as well as the implications for medical and health professions education.

    The purpose of this book is twofold: First, it provides an up-to-date overview of the field of surgical oncology for surgeons in training. Particular attention is devoted to the principles of surgery, but important aspects of radiation and medical oncology are also discussed. Furthermore, diagnostic, staging, and treatment algorithms are presented that will offer invaluable assistance in management decision making. The second aim of the book is to offer a comprehensive reference source on the role of surgery in curative and palliative management for medical and radiation oncologists (in practice and in training) and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of cancer patients. The full range of cancer types is covered in a practical, multidisciplinary approach, and additional chapters are devoted to pediatric malignancies, the role of new surgical technologies, and surgical emergencies.

    In this dissertation, I investigate when and why gender segregation occurs in the professions of medicine, law and teaching. Drawing on social psychological perspectives on gender and theories on career development, I posit that segregation patterns differ across these three occupational contexts due to differences in gender valence of jobs and structures of career process. Specifically, I argue that early career choices are more gender-segregated in the highly gendered context of medicine and teaching, while the extent of gender segregation may vary (and increase) more substantially over time in the less structured contexts of teaching and law. Using data from professional organizations and government sources, I analyzed careers of a cohort of doctors, lawyers and teachers from their entry into their professions in 1991-1994 to 10-17 years after entry. Consistent with my hypotheses, doctors and teachers displayed highly gender-different aspirations than lawyers, and whereas the level of gender segregation remained fairly constant for doctors, it fluctuated somewhat for teachers and increased substantially for lawyers, particularly after the first six years of work. Analysis of 39 in-depth interviews further suggests that job choices among doctors and teachers reflect deeply held gendered ideas about people and work, whereas job choices among lawyers are seen as series of adjustments to organizational contexts, adjustments that usually differ for women and men. In total, these findings make the case for a more detailed view of intra-occupational gender segregation, one that places gender processes within the occupational context. In proposing a context-driven paradigm for studying gender inequality, this study brings the occupation to the center of the investigation, and argues for a more expansive view of gender segregation that takes into account the meanings and structures that delineate career decision-making and the constraints on the process.

    In this dissertation I provide an empirically based account of the trajectory of right-to-health litigation in Colombia during the past twenty years (1991-2012). Focusing on several critical junctures of this trajectory and drawing from the results of multi sited fieldwork, I reconstruct how a set of stakeholders (policymakers, judges, litigants, activists and pharmaceutical companies) spurred the surge of right-to-health litigation in Colombia, which according to recent estimates is the highest among middle-income countries. Additionally, I explore how a set of structural judicial remedies handed down by the Colombian Constitutional Court in 2008--ruling T-760/08--addressed the institutional determinants of the surge of right-to-health litigation and nudged policymakers in the direction of health-care reform.

    Providing a balanced, evidence-based discussion of whiplash and its associated disorders, Whiplash: A Patient Centered Approach to Management compiles information from many sources into a single, definitive reference. It clearly delineates rationales and procedures, covering cervical spine anatomy, neurology, kinesiology, epidemiology, patient history and assessment, imaging, soft tissue injuries, articular lesions, rehabilitation, and prognosis. Using numerous full-color photos and illustrations, an expert author team led by Dr. Meridel Gatterman offers concrete guidelines for a patient-centered approach to care of whiplash and whiplash-related conditions -- one that recommends minimally invasive procedures and therapies whenever possible. A companion Evolve website includes video clips showing stretching exercises, printable patient handouts, and narrated PowerPoint slides. A patient-centered approach to care emphasizes working with patients as partners, with both preferring minimally invasive procedures and therapies where appropriate, in a way that promotes self-healing, a holistic approach to the patient, and a humanistic attitude with regard to the patient/practitioner relationship. An easy-to-follow organization helps you to clearly identify whiplash and plan a course of treatment, beginning with an in-depth description of whiplash and the various approaches to treatment and moving on to cover the anatomy of the cervical spine, the mechanism of injury, physical examination, and imaging, then continuing with the management of whiplash injuries and complications such as headaches and joint injuries. Full-color photos and illustrations clarify concepts and procedures. Evidence-based content is based on findings in current literature, and cited in chapter references. Coverage of both typical and less common types of whiplash injuries helps you accurately assess varied symptoms and avoid overlooking any related signs and symptoms. Detailed coverage of the relationship between the cervical spine and the cervical distribution of the autonomic nervous system helps you recognize the potential complications of whiplash and how nerve anatomy informs these complications. More than 20 tables and charts provide a quick reference to facilitate review of the material. A glossary provides definitions and pronunciations of terms related to whiplash. Expert author Meridel Gatterman, MA, DC, MEd, is one of the leading chiropractic academics in the U.S., has written several other chiropractic textbooks and many peer-reviewed journal articles, has served as both a Dean and Director for two different chiropractic schools, and currently acts as a Consultant to the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners. A companion Evolve website includes video clips of a chiropractor performing stretching exercises, plus an image collection, narrated PowerPoint slides, and printable patient handouts.

    The new edition of this book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of whiplash-associated disorders, focusing in particular on a functional approach to clinical and instrumental diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment. It fully reflects the changes in our understanding of whiplash injuries since the first edition, and in particular the increased awareness that whiplash is a whole-body trauma in which forces act progressively from the lumbar region to the brain, through the cervical spine. Detailed attention is paid to the functional connections between the sense organs of the inner ear, the sympathetic system, and the spine with a view to optimizing diagnosis and treatment. It is explained how various treatment options can be employed to best effect in patients with different symptoms, following, but updating, the well-known Quebec Task Force guidelines. Underestimated aspects such as positional vertigo, somatic tinnitus, temporomandibular disorders, and back pain are also considered. This book will be an invaluable tool in everyday clinical practice for all who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash injury.

    In the past two decades much has been published on whiplash injury, yet both the confusion regarding the condition and the medicolegal discussion surrounding it have increased. In this scenario, a guide to recent and current international research in the field is more necessary than ever. Especially functional imaging methods â" such as single-photon emission tomography, positron emission tomography, functional MRI, and hybrid techniques â" have demonstrated a variety of significant brain alterations. This book accordingly offers a critical approach to the challenging interpretation of the new research data obtained using functional neuroimaging in whiplash injury. It covers all aspects, including the imaging tools themselves and the different methods of image analysis. Whiplash Injury: New Methods of Functional Neuroimaging will hopefully help patients, their relatives and friends, physicians, and others to understand this condition as a disease.

    This book addresses all aspects of white coat hypertension? the phenomenon of raised blood pressure in a medical setting yet not elsewhere? from its history to its pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment. White coat hypertension is a common condition, accounting for 30?40% of the overall hypertensive population. While many studies have addressed this condition, controversy still exists over whether it causes an increased risk to sufferers and should be treated. In the volume neurogenic and non-neurogenic mechanisms are discussed and the significance of various predictive factors, evaluated. The association of white coat hypertension with dysmetabolic risk factors, new-onset diabetes and other conditions is carefully reviewed. Further chapters consider the occurrence of asymptomatic organ damage and cardiovascular outcomes in affected patients, and helpful guidance is also provided on the controversial issue of when to treat and when not to treat. White Coat Hypertension is based largely on work done during the past 30 years by renowned researchers working in Milan, who have made key contributions in improving knowledge of the condition and whose work is well known across the world.

    The first book to provide a systematic expert summary of normal white matter morphology as well as white matter injury following stroke and other CNS injuries. White matter injury can result from both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke as well as a host of other CNS diseases and conditions such as neonatal injuries, neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning, and drug or alcohol overdoses. The extent of white matter injury is extremely important to patient outcomes. Several recent technological developments including advanced neuroimaging and the breeding of new rodent models of white matter injury have provided growing insight into initial damage and repair after a stroke or other damaging event.

    Almost 3 billion people, in low- and middle-income countries mostly, still rely on solid fuels (wood, animal dung, charcoal, crop wastes and coal) burned in inefficient and highly polluting stoves for cooking and heating. In 2012 alone, no fewer than 4.3 million children and adults died prematurely from illnesses caused by such household air pollution, according to estimates by the World Health Organization. Together with widespread use of kerosene stoves, heaters and lamps, these practices also result in many serious injuries and deaths from scalds, burns and poisoning. These new indoor air quality guidelines for household fuel combustion aim to help public health policy-makers, as well as specialists working on energy, environmental and other issues understand best approaches to reducing household air pollution -- the greatest environmental health risk in the world today.

    Within the continuum of reproductive health care, antenatal care (ANC) provides a platform for important healthcare functions, including health promotion, screening and diagnosis, and disease prevention. It has been established that, by implementing timely and appropriate evidence-based practices, ANC can save lives. Endorsed, by the UN Secretary-General, this is a comprehensive WHO guideline on routine ANC for pregnant women and adolescent girls. It aims to complement existing WHO guidelines on the management of specific pregnancy-related complications. The guidance aims to capture the complex nature of the issues surrounding ANC health care practices and delivery, and to prioritize person-centred health and well-being, not only the prevention of death and morbidity, in accordance with a human rights-based approach.

    "The WHO Recommended Classification of Pesticides by Hazard was approved by the 28th World Health Assembly in 1975 and has since gained wide acceptance. ... Guidelines were first issued in 1978, and have since been revised and reissued every few years. Up until the present revision the original guidelines approved by the World Health Assembly in 1975 have been followed without amendment. In December, 2002 the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (UNCETDG/GHS) approved a document called 'The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals' with the intent to provide a globally-harmonized system1 (GHS) to address classification of chemicals, labels, and safety data sheets. ... For this revision of the Classification the WHO Hazard Classes have been aligned in an appropriate way with the GHS Acute Toxicity Hazard Categories for acute oral or dermal toxicity as the starting point for allocating pesticides to a WHO Hazard Class (with adjustments for individual pesticides where required). ... The GHS Acute Toxicity Hazard Category for each pesticide is now presented alongside the existing information." - p. 1.

    This report, the fifth in the series of WHO reports on the global tobacco epidemic, presents a country-level examination of the epidemic and identifies countries that have applied effective tobacco control measures. The number of people worldwide protected by effective tobacco control measures continues to grow, and countries that have adopted these measures at the highest level of achievement can be considered models for action for those countries that have yet to do so. The focus of this report is raising taxes on tobacco, the 'R' component of MPOWER. Time and again, increasing taxes on tobacco products to increase retail prices has been proven to be the most effective and efficient of the best-buy demand reduction measures to reduce tobacco use. And yet it is also the least widely implemented measure.

    This manual presents a large collection of clinical cases in oncology with accompanying whole-body FDG PET-CT scans. The aim is to promote an integrated approach to the use of PET-CT, and detailed attention is therefore paid to the clinical history and diagnostic question. A central aspect of every clinical case described in this manual is the guidance on the clinical report, which is the official tool for communicating with both the referring physician and the person undergoing the diagnostic test; for this reason it needs to be clear, understandable, and written in shared language. The advice regarding report preparation is strongly supported by informative PET, CT, and PET-CT fused images of each disease. The book is broadly structured according to anatomic region, and a wide range of common diseases likely to be imaged using PET-CT is covered. This book will be of value to all those training or working in the field of oncology who wish to ensure that they are best placed to contextualize, interpret, and report the findings obtained with PET-CT, which can have such a dramatic impact on prognosis, therapeutic choice, and quality of life.

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) Program to provide consumer-focused health insurance options. But the CO-OP experience to date reveals factors that limit market competition. This report considers the challenges that CO-OPs have faced through analysis of plan, pricing, and enrollment data for six CO-OPs. We also interviewed CO-OP executives and experts to better understand the market assumptions and strategies of these new companies. We describe how CO-OPs responded to the prohibition on using federal loans for marketing, problems associated with outsourcing health plan functions, CO-OP plan design and pricing strategies, dynamics of both high and low enrollment, and challenges related to the ACA's premium stabilization programs. We conclude by highlighting the role of federal and state policy decisions in adding to rather than reducing barriers to market entry for CO-OPs.

    This paper compares the most recent CMS forecast released in July 2015 to the 2010 ACA baseline forecast. The 2015 forecast incorporates actual spending data from 2013 and projects spending for 2014 through 2024. Importantly, the 2015 forecast also incorporates the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), passed in April 2015, that permanently eliminated the sustainable growth rate (SGR) system for setting physician payment rates in Medicare. The earlier work used the "current-law" forecasts for Medicare spending, which included the projected effects of large cuts to Medicare physician payments that were required by the SGR system at the time of each forecast.

    The term psychoneuroimmunology was originally coined to acknowledge the existence of functional interactions between the brain, the immune system and the endocrine system. As our understanding deepens regarding the interplay between the brain and the way bodies function, the field continues to grow in importance.

    "Sir William Richard Gowers was one of the pre-eminent clinical neurologists of the nineteenth century. He is best remembered for his discovery of the eponymous 'Gowers' sign', for his invention of the patella hammer, and for authoring the classic two-volume neurology textbook Manual of Diseases of the Nervous System. To date Dr Gowers has been the subject of only one published biography, while some aspects of Gowers' work have been chronicled in historical works regarding the history of neurology. This book goes into greater detail than ever, presenting the life story behind a great Victorian brain. Illustrated throughout with hundreds of family photographs and original sketches, the authors cover Gowers' early years, his clinical work at Queen Square, his accolades, and friendships with explorers and famous authors. Co-authored by an academic with special access to the Gowers family archives and two leading neurologists, this book is the first definitive reference work on the life of William Richard Gowers." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Presents a medical and social history of a devastating hereditary neurological disorder, Huntington's disease, once demonized as 'the witchcraft disease'. She explores the changing meanings of heredity, disability, stigma, and medical knowledge among ordinary people as well as scientists and physicians. This work presents a groundbreaking medical and social history of a devastating hereditary neurological disorder once demonized as 'the witchcraft disease'. When Phebe Hedges, a woman in East Hampton, New York, walked into the sea in 1806, she made visible the historical experience of a family affected by the dreaded disorder of movement, mind, and mood her neighbours called St. Vitus' dance. Doctors later spoke of Huntington's chorea, and today it is known as Huntington's disease. This book is the first history of Huntington's in America. Starting with the life of Phebe Hedges, Alice Wexler uses Huntington's as a lens to explore the changing meanings of heredity, disability, stigma, and medical knowledge among ordinary people as well as scientists and physicians.She addresses these themes through three overlapping stories: the lives of a nineteenth-century family once said to 'belong to the disease'; the emergence of Huntington's chorea as a clinical entity; and, the early-twentieth-century transformation of this disorder into a cautionary eugenics tale. In our own era of expanding genetic technologies, this history offers insights into the social contexts of medical and scientific knowledge, as well as the legacy of eugenics in shaping both the knowledge and the lived experience of this disease.--Publisher's summary.

    In their efforts to utilize their medical skills and training in the service of their country, women physicians fought not one but two male-dominated professional hierarchies: the medical and the military establishments. In the process, they also contended with powerful social pressures and constraints. Throughout Women Doctors in War, authors Judith Bellafaire and Mercedes Graf focus on the medical careers, aspirations, and struggles of individual women, using personal stories to illustrate the unique professional and personal challenges female military physicians have faced. Military and medical historians and scholars in women's studies will discover a wealth of new information in this book.

    Most women initially discuss health-related matters with a medical practitioner in a primary care setting, whether they have specific concerns or are seeking advice and guidance. This practical and comprehensive guide will help primary care practitioners to deliver holistic women's health care to patients throughout different life stages. Contraceptive choices, infertility, pregnancy, and menopause are covered, along with specific diseases such as ovarian cysts, breast conditions, and ovarian cancer. All of the authors are GPs, consultants and nurses with experience of the requirements for healthcare delivery in the primary care setting. Each chapter is written in a practical style, including a list of key points and using cases to illustrate the application of the content. This will be invaluable reading for GPs, doctors in training roles, and nurses with an interest in women's health. It will be particularly useful for candidates preparing for the DRCOG or MRCGP examinations.

    "The Work and Lives of Teachers offers a simple but original argument: that the cultural attitudes toward the teaching profession measurably influence how students perform. Cohen uses both ethnographic portraits and personal accounts from thirteen teachers - from Finland, Taiwan, Greece, Azerbaijan, France, Chile, South Africa, Siberia, Brazil, Romania, Philippines, Norway and the United States - to explore the meaning and value of teaching worldwide. This study includes the ways in which teachers in these countries are educated, recruited, compensated, and perceived by parents, students, administrators, and the culture at large. Teachers' voices, so rarely heard in international educational studies, are front and center here, highlighting the daily work in the classroom and the pleasures and struggles of engaging in the teaching profession in 2016. The lesson, briefly stated, is that societies are only as good as the people who teach in them"-- Provided by publisher.

    Psychologists have been trying to understand the factors that underpin children's success and failure in different education domains for many years. One psychological function that has been found to play an important role in educational achievement is working memory, the processes involved in the temporary maintenance and manipulation of information. This book provides the reader with an up-to-date review of the research that has identified how working memory relates to academic attainment in reading, reading comprehension, and arithmetic. It also looks at how children with difficulties relating to hearing impairment and attention deficits differ in terms of their working memory. Other chapters focus on how working memory is called upon in classroom settings, how working memory can be accessed, and approaches to remediation. The opening chapter of the book provides an account of working memory from the architect of the model that has dominated psychological theory for over two decades. This book is a valuable resource for psychogists, educators, and anyone seeking to understand more about the cognitive basis of education achievement in children.

    "Three core ideas are at the heart of this book: relational expertise, the capacity to interpret problems with others; common knowledge, which consists of knowing what matters for professionals in other practices; and relational agency, which involves using that common knowledge to take action with others. These ideas are based in cultural-historical approaches to learning and change, and give coherence to the arguments presented. This is not a recipe book; the ideas are offered as resources for reflecting on and developing professional and research practices, and the conditions in which they occur."--Provided by publisher.

    "Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) blight the lives of a billion people worldwide and threaten the health of millions more. These ancient companions of poverty weaken impoverished populations, frustrate the achievement of health in the Millennium Development Goals and impede global development outcomes. A more reliable evaluation of their significance to public health and economies has convinced governments, donors, the pharmaceutical industry and other agencies, including nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), to invest in preventing and controlling this diverse group of diseases. Global efforts to control "hidden" diseases, such as dracunculiasis (guinea-worm disease), leprosy, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis and yaws, have yielded progressive health gains including the imminent eradication of dracunculiasis. Since 1989 (when most endemic countries began reporting monthly from each endemic village), the number of new dracunculiasis cases has fallen from 892 055 in 12 endemic countries to 3190 in 4 countries in 2009, a decrease of more than 99%. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends five public-health strategies for the prevention and control of NTDs: preventive chemotherapy; intensified case-management; vector control; the provision of safe water, sanitation and hygiene; and veterinary public health (that is, applying veterinary sciences to ensure the health and well-being of humans). Although one approach may predominate for control of a specific disease or group of diseases, evidence suggests that more effective control results when all five approaches are combined and delivered locally." - p. vii

    "The World Malaria Report 2010 summarizes information received from 106 malaria-endemic countries and from malaria control partners. It highlights continued progress made towards reaching international targets for malaria control by 2010 and by 2015. International funds disbursed for malaria control increased from US$ 200 million in 2004 to US$ 1.5 billion in 2009. Since 2008, more than 289 million insecticide-treated mosquito nets have been delivered to sub-Saharan Africa, enough to protect three quarters of the 765 million people at risk of the disease. Over the last decade, 11 countries in the WHO African Region and 32 countries in other Regions have reported reductions of 50% or more in either confirmed malaria cases or malaria admissions and deaths. Malaria control is making an important contribution to attaining the health-related Millennium Development Goals"--P. [4] of cover.

The World report on ageing and health outlines a framework for action to foster Healthy Ageing built around the new concept of functional ability. This will require a transformation of health systems away from disease based curative models and towards the provision of older-person-centred and integrated care. It will require the development, sometimes from nothing, of comprehensive systems of long term care."--Page 4 of cover.

    "Child injuries have been neglected for many years, and are largely absent from child survival initiatives presently on the global agenda. Through this World report on child injury prevention, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children's Fund and many partners have set out to elevate child injury to a priority for the global public health and development communities. The knowledge and experience of nearly two hundred experts from all continents and various sectors were invaluable in grounding the report in the realities faced in many countries. This World report on child injury prevention should be seen as a complement to the UN Secretary-General's study on violence against children released in late 2006. That report addressed violence-related or intentional injuries. Both reports suggest that child injury and violence prevention programmes need to be integrated into child survival and other broad strategies focused on improving the lives of children. Evidence demonstrates the dramatic successes in child injury prevention in countries which have made a concerted effort. These results make a case for increasing investments in human resources and institutional capacities. This would permit the development, implementation and evaluation of programmes to stem the tide of child injury and enhance the health and well-being of children and their families the world over. Implementing proven interventions could save more than a thousand children's lives a day." - p. vii

    This fully revised and updated follow-up to Dr. William B. Geissler?s Wrist Arthroscopy has expanded its scope to include arthroscopy techniques of the elbow in addition to the wrist. This practical guide covers fundamental topics, such as arthroscopic anatomy, set-up and the proper evaluation of wrist and elbow pain, along with advanced discussions of electrothermal shrinkage, arthroscopy of the thumb and small joints of the hand, and specific diagnoses for an array of common injuries. Current minimally invasive procedures are described in detail, including management of carpal instability, arthroscopic proximal row carpectomy, arthroscopic knotless TFCC repair, arthroscopic SLIC screw for scapholunate instability, arthroscopic fixation of intra-articular fractures of the hand, arthroscopic partial wrist fusions, and innovative techniques in dry arthroscopy. Arthroscopic management of the elbow includes treatment for arthritis, contractures and instability. Selected chapters contain companion video as well, demonstrating surgical set-up and arthroscopic techniques. Written by a truly international cast and edited by an expert in arthroscopic hand and upper extremity surgery, Wrist and Elbow Arthroscopy is a practical guide to technique for orthopedic surgeons, hand surgeons, and sports medicine practitioners alike.

    "Today, information in a medical article must include not only research activities and findings, but also strategic, managerial, and administrative ones. It might include planning, political, cultural, spiritual and other social aspects as well as experience in healthcare, health protection, disease prevention, and health promotion. This book is designed to help the authors of medical articles communicate better in today's practice and health research environment. It explores the most effective practices for communicating using three medical literature formats: scientific articles, articles where the subject is not based on the scientific method, and business reports"--Provided by publisher.

    This book is organized as a practical guide to writing a biomedical research article. Hence, as you will see from the table of contents, chapters are arranged according to the sequence of tasks that we normally encounter in our writing. The book deals only with writing and submission of manuscripts; there are no directions concerning, for example, the preparation of figures or audiovisual presentations. Furthermore, every chapter is concise; we do not beat topics to death. Exemplars of highly prevalent expressions are given throughout, however the number of examples in the book is not excessive.

    "For more than 15 years, I have taught a graduate course on grant proposal writing for students in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. With their encouragement and suggestions, this textbook has come to be a reality. Competition for research funds has never been more intense and, at the same time, the grant application and review process at such agencies as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are undergoing significant transformation. Writing Dissertation and Grant Proposals: Epidemiology, Preventive Medicine, and Biostatistics is unique in representing an up-to-date textbook targeting effective grant proposal writing in this growing and important field. The text covers all aspects of the proposal-writing process from soup to nuts. Stepby- step tips address grant structure and style alongside broader strategies for developing a research funding portfolio. Throughout, concepts are illustrated with annotated examples from successfully funded proposals in the field. Strategies to avoid common errors and pitfalls (e.g., dos and don'ts) and summary checklists of guidelines are provided. Essentially, the text can be viewed as a virtual cookbook of the appropriate ingredients needed to construct a successful grant proposal. Therefore, this text is not only highly relevant for early-stage investigators including graduate students, medical students/residents, and postdoctoral fellows, but also valuable for more experienced faculty, clinicians, epidemiologists, and other health professionals who cannot seem to break the barrier to NIH-funded research"-- Provided by publisher.
