- Child and adolescent behavioral health : a resource for advanced practice psychiatric and primary care practitioners in nursing2012 Wileyeditors, Edilma L. Yearwood, Geraldine S. Pearson, Jamesetta A. Newland."As an increasing number of children and adolescents with psychiatric symptoms go unrecognized in our current healthcare system, the ability to identify and treat these issues in multiple healthcare settings has become vitally important.

Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health provides a practical reference to aid in this endeavour. Written and reviewed by over 70 nurse experts, it is a must-have reference for all practitioners caring for children and adolescents."

- Fostering nurse-led care : professional practice for the bedside leader from Massachusetts General Hospital2013 ebrary[edited by] Jeanette Ives Erickson, Dorothy A. Jones, Marianne Ditomassi."Nurse leaders exist at every level--from the bedside to the boardroom. But these days, nurse leaders and managers face major changes in health care delivery models that pressure them to improve patient care but at the same time improve efficiency and lower costs. Add to this the demand to provide nursing education and improve retentions, and the pressure can mount and create additional problems for your organization. The solution? Fostering Nurse-Led Care--from three of Massachusettes General Hospital's top nurse executives--tells nurse leaders and care providers the secrets of the professional practice model that has improved system outcomes and increased patient, family, and staff satisfaction for nearly 20 years. The book provides details including developing, implementing, and evaluating a professional practice environment; optimizing quality standards; implementing patient safety measurements and balancing cost with quality; building an effective learning environment; and resolving conflicts and ethical dilemmas"--Page 4 of cover.

- 2015 SpringerAllen J. Taylor, Editor.The foundation of this handbook lies in the supremacy of careful, clinical observation in medicine. The science and application of auscultation, albeit not without its imperfections, represent a learnable, tangible, personal approach to assessment of the heart and remains crucial in medical practice. Today's medicine tends towards the high tech, discarding simple approaches that can and should steer clinicians towards when to utilize expensive testing, and at the most can, potentially, outperform technology for accurate cardiovascular diagnosis. Within a cost conscious, personalized approach to medicine, the art of clinical examination of the heart could never be more alive, or more important. Technology needs a clinically informed platform upon which to provide benefits to patients with careful clinical observation providing proper identification of patients in need of additional testing and avoiding unnecessary expensive testing. Learning Cardiac Auscultation: From Essentials to Expert Clinical Interpretation provides a clinically-oriented approach to the astute observation of heart sounds and other aspects of the cardiovascular examination. It describes key clinical and auscultation features, and clinical clues to the diagnosis. More importantly, auscultation of the heart should not just end with a simple diagnosis, but an unearthing of nuances of the diagnosis, for example, describing the possible severity or diagnostic implications of the auscultation findings.

- 2014 Springerby Alan Bleakley.The recent history of medicine is one of great biological and technological advances. Diagnoses are being made earlier, diseases caught sooner, patients living longer. And yet there is one area that lags behind the rest of the field: despite the efforts of graduate courses and training manuals, too many doctors still find communication a challenge. In Patient-Centered Medicine in Transition, the focus is not on skills or tools but on context to improve communication not only with patients, but between colleagues, with management, and within and across teams. Rigorous and readable, this timely manifesto presents new models of team process in patient-centered care, emphasizing their value in reducing harmful medical errors and improving patient care, safety, and outcomes. Further, the author provides significant research evidence supporting democratic approaches to communication in medicine while also addressing vital questions of ethics, empathy, gender dynamics, and physician self-care. Included in the coverage: The epidemic of communication hypocompetence. Patient-centeredness without a center. How doctors think can be judged from how they listen and speak. Working and learning in teams in the new era of health care. Blunting Occam's Razor: team process and complexity theory. Building a collaborative community in medical education research. Patient-Centered Medicine in Transition offers a bold new reconceptualization of an important topic and a roadmap to new frontiers in practice to be read and discussed by researchers and practitioners in medical education.

- 2014 CRCnetBASEedited by Suzanne Henwood."Preface This book is part of a journey--a personal journey of development and discovery, where through excellent teachers and challenging life and work lessons, I have, over time, developed a real passion for leadership. But not any leadership, leadership which is authentic and sincere, focused on a way forward; leadership which is ethical and compassionate, which comes from a place of integrity, and which has within it a genuine desire for growth and positive change for all those involved, be that for ourselves, the colleagues we work with or the patients we serve. It is a leadership that is prepared to put personal ego aside to ensure the greater good of others and the service we work within. It is a leadership that wants to make a real difference and will do what it takes to ensure that the goal is reached within an ethical and compassionate framework. To bring others along on that journey, this book introduces people with whom I have connected over the last few years, who have inspired me and shown me what this real, authentic and compassionate leadership is all about. The authors here have all shown real leadership in their own walks of professional life, are all passionate about what they do for others and are generous enough to share their learning to assist others in their ongoing leadership development. The focus of the book is twofold: firstly, to assist personal leadership development, for personal satisfaction and growth, and secondly, to improve healthcare delivery to patients, through excellence in personal practice. I believe that it is through the passion, ability and drive of individuals (you and me) that we will change and challenge practices to ensure that patients get the best possible care in all healthcare contexts"--Provided by publisher.
