    Discusses "houses of healing" established during the Seljuk and Ottoman eras which were visited by the authors. Evaluates these charitable institutions from the perspective of the history of medicine, the history of art, and cultural history. Presents medicine as practiced in the Anatolian Seljuk and Ottoman Empires, was well as their hospitals, followed by coverage of each facility (about 20, of which only two continue as hospitals).

    "This book presents the first evidence-based casebook for hospitalists and other hospital-based physicians, associated staff, and trainees. Each clinical chapter concludes with practical "pearls" for application to the user's own practice, while a free CD contains all images and case summaries in PowerPoint files. Based on and expanded from the wildly popular Clinical Care Conundrum (CCC) series in the Journal of Hospital Medicine, this attractive new volume combines high-quality images and text to form an indispensable reference and study text for the wards or the classroom"--Provided by publisher.

    "When physicians complete their training, they are given a title of "attending" and given full authority to care for patients. Many researchers assume their training process is complete. However, through a sociological ethnographic study of first-year attending at a prestigious pediatric hospital, many unresolved issues emerge: developing a style of doctoring, acquiring an authoritative role, dealing with professional uncertainty, malpractice, balancing work and family life. Understanding the first-year attending's socialization process can help medical educators expand their body of knowledge and improve patient care."

    "Healthcare leaders are facing major change in how healthcare is delivered as we move from fee-for-service payment models to pay for value. Physicians and hospitals are evolving from separate financial entities (with relationships varying from customers/workshops to competitors) to unified systems. Government policy maker, payers, and hordes of consultants advise hospitals to increase physician leadership in all parts of the system. However, few have proposed how this can be done when the gaps between hospitals and physicians are so wide. Physicians do not trust healthcare leaders, lack leadership and teamwork skills, and have little knowledge of how systems work. Some hospital leaders are working to overcome these gaps by setting up dyad leadership teams, consisting of a physician and an experienced manager/leader. The physician member of the team helps with the first gap; the nurse or other dyad partner is important to manage the other gaps. Until now, with the publication of Dyad Clinical Leadership, there has not been a source to help clinical dyad partners learn and understand how to work together in this emerging management model. Kathleen D. Sanford, DBA, RN, CENP, FACHE, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), builds on CHI's success with this unique playbook for the model"--Provided by publisher.

    Here the author, a physician and reporter provides a landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, and a suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice. She reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amid chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several health professionals faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. She unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, of a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing. In this book, she exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are in America for the impact of large-scale disasters, and how we can do better.

    Between birth and death, many of life's most critical moments occur in hospital, and they deserve to take place in surroundings that match their significance. In this spirit, from the early renaissance through to the modern period, artists have made immensely powerful work in hospitals across the western world, enhancing the environments where patients and medical staff strive towards better health.

    The art of medicine becomes science when supported by evidence. The recommended practices of infection prevention are based on scientific and epidemiologic evidence. However,most health care professionals see them as mandates and fail to incorporate them into their routine patient care activities. Thecore goal of this publication is to link the practices to theprinciples they are based on. The expectation is that understanding ofthe principles willchange thepractices from mandates to "should do" in the minds of health care professionals. This will lead to improvement inhealth care by preventing unintended harm to patients, co-workers and the communities at large. At the same time, the text provides a comprehensive, thorough and up to date information on all aspects of infection prevention in a reader-friendly manner and therefore, will serve as a valuable reference.

    Making Computerized Provider Order Entry Work is neither a scientific reference guide into medical informatics nor a book on theory or a summary of research studies in the field, but rather it is a practical guide to visioning and executing successful automation of physician workflow in the hospital environment. This adaptation of workflow is the work of a team, with leadership, clear vision, dedication, commitment, external drivers, experience, and the tireless work of those before us in this industry, who have paved the way with both successes and failure.Throughout the book, the author shares hard lessons-learned and guides the reader through the early warning signs that will help avoid the pitfalls. As systems progress, and the regulatory environments change, there will be new challenges and opportunities that will confront those setting up automated physician workflows. However, this book highlights and discusses all of the principles involved such as vision, leadership, project management and change management, which will always need to be incorporated to ensure project success. As such this book will be an important reference for anyone involved in the setting up or use of such systems from the physicians and medical professionals themselves through the medical informaticist to health system executives and other decision makers.
