    The new edition of Clinical Nursing Practices reflects the many changes in nurse education and practice. A team of clinical and education experts has updated the core practices contained within this text, while to ensure continuity the previous editors have acted as consultants in the development of this edition.

    To reflect the continuing evolution of nursing and nursing practice, this new 6th edition emphasizes the importance of evidence-based practice, values-based care, person centred care, health and social care integration and interprofessional education.

    To encourage reflective practice, self-assessment questions remain at the end of each chapter for some of the practices. Where appropriate, certain practices are evidenced mainly by National Guidelines and Standards such as Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, Infection Control and Blood Transfusion; consequently, the presentation of the skill or procedure reflects this.

    The updated text addresses the wider issues which impact on everyday nursing and healthcare practice and is specially written to meet the needs of nurses today. The core philosophy of book, however, remains the same: to encourage its readers to deliver the highest quality care to each individual patient, safely and effectively.


    • Simple and straightforward step-by-step account of the key clinical procedures with clear learning outcomes.
    • For nurses learning procedures for the first time, for newly qualified nurses needing to check their knowledge or for nurses returning to work needing an update or refresher.
    • Equips readers to deliver high quality, safe and effective care to patients.

    New To This Edition:

    • References the new NMC standards of proficiency
    • Updates to all chapters and skills
    • New Action-Rationale format - clearly shows the reasons for performing each procedure.

    The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Medicine is designed to provide concise information on rehabilitation aspects of long-term medical conditions affecting adults. The book has two sections, one on clinical symptom-specific approaches and another on condition-specific approaches. The clinical approach section outlines the management of common symptoms encountered in rehabilitation settings. The section on specific conditions provides information that will enable the reader to put the symptoms in context with the condition and provide direct management in a comprehensive and holistic manner. As the practice in rehabilitation goes beyond dealing with condition specific symptoms and is more focused on problem solving, the handbook provides a solid grounding in managing common practical problems in functions such as mobility, cognition, sex, relationships and work productivity. The conditions covered include neurological, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiac, pulmonary, cancer, vascular, trauma and burns. The latest advances from the field of orthotics, prosthesis, wheelchairs, technical aids and rehabilitation technology are included. The content and layout within each chapter and handbook as a whole attempt to capture all the aspects of WHO ICF biopsychosocial model for health conditions. This Handbook, although aimed at medical doctors in the specialist area of Rehabilitation Medicine (also known as Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine in some countries), will prove useful to other members of the multidisciplinary rehabilitation team such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, psychologists, speech and language therapists, dieticians, support workers and any other allied healthcare professionals working in rehabilitation of chronic conditions. The Handbook will also appeal to doctors in the related specialties like Neurology, Orthopaedics and Trauma, Palliative Medicine, Geriatrics, Pain Medicine and Sports and Exercise Medicine.

    This well-illustrated book presents the latest diagnostic concepts and management techniques in the rapidly expanding subspecialty of pediatric oculofacial plastic surgery. Covering all aspects of the field and taking into account numerous surgical innovations and exciting new medical treatment concepts that have emerged since publication of the previous edition in 2002, Pediatric Oculoplastic Surgery, 2nd Edition will prove to be an invaluable resource for both the comprehensive ophthalmologist and the subspecialist with a particular interest in pediatric disorders of the eyelids, orbit, and nasolacrimal system. 


    Topics discussed, in addition to clearly illustrated basic oculoplastic procedures, include surgical innovations ranging from the Sonopet system for safer removal of bone in lacrimal surgery to the development of complex image guidance technology for sinus and orbital surgery. Detailed discussion of syndromic and non-syndromic congenital anomalies explore a variety of surgical techniques and the nuances of applying these approaches in the management of various structural abnormalites. Further important advances include new analytic laboratory techniques, which can illuminate the genetic basis of many pediatric oculoplastic disorders, various medical management advances such as the role of beta blockers in the treatment of  facial and orbital hemangiomas, and the development of biologic pathway blockers inhibiting tumor growth which offer real potential for reducing the necessity of surgical intervention.

    There are nearly 24,000 ophthalmologists in the United States, with 500 physicians newly entering the ophthalmology field each year and approximately half of those being women. Although women now represent approximately half of all ophthalmologists, gender disparities remain when it comes to certain subspecialties (e.g., surgical retina), leadership roles (e.g., department chairs), industry involvement (e.g., consultancy and advisory board positions), and even academic publications. There has been a recently heightened interest in female representation in this field which has manifested in several ways (e.g., conferences geared towards women in ophthalmology, non-peer-reviewed publications about women in ophthalmology, and mentorship programs specifically for women). This book is the first of its kind in procuring and disseminating information—pertaining to both career and life—in an organized, concrete, and enduring way.  Women in Ophthalmology is a comprehensive collection of chapters primarily written by women in the field of ophthalmology. The book aims to guide others through milestones and challenges women may face during their careers, and shares sound insights into how to deal with unique issues both inside and outside the workplace. Topics that are widely applicable to all who work in ophthalmology are included, such as finding mentors, collaborating within industry, handling work-life balance, and seeking out leadership opportunities. Each chapter combines personal anecdotes with knowledge from leaders in the field which both men and women will find highly valuable.

    This book is intended to provide a quick guide to the field of pediatric retina. It has been long accepted that retinal disorders in children differ from those in adults. Although there are plenty of published books on retinal diseases, most of them only cover adult retinal disorders. Therefore, information on pediatric retinal diseases is urgently needed. The book combines comprehensive information with rich illustrations to offer readers an in-depth understanding of the two main themes: retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and other pediatric vitreoretinal disorders. World-renowned pediatric retina experts share their insights and research findings in areas such as ROP, familiar exudative vitreoretinopathy, Coats disease, retinoblastoma, congenital x-linked retinoschisis and hereditary retinal diseases. Topics concerning modern and future medicine such as tele-screening for ROP, E-learning for ROP, and deep learning for ROP are also included. Designed to help readers understand the contents as quickly as possible, the book includes many useful tips and pearls, as well as easy-to-follow figures. It covers the majority of pediatric retinal diseases and offers essential information on their diagnosis and management. In addition, relevant and up-to-date references are provided for those who want to explore the topics in more depth. As such, the book offers an excellent reference guide to caring for these young patients.

    Die junge Emilienne ist dem Bürgerkrieg in Ruanda entkommen und hat in London ein neues Leben begonnen. Die grausamen Erinnerungen an ihre Heimat versucht sie zu verdrangen. Vera hat in jungen Jahren einen Fehltritt begangen und mochte ein guter und moralischer Mensch sein - wenn nur ihre qualenden Schuldgefühle nicht waren und die Unmoglichkeit, ihrem Verlobten davon zu erzahlen. Und die 56-jahrige Lynn ist schwer erkrankt und rechnet schonungslos mit den verpassten Chancen ihres Lebens ab. Alle drei Frauen werden von dunklen Geheimnissen und seelischen Verletzungen geplagt, doch auf sich allein gestellt, gelingt es ihnen nicht, die Damonen ihrer Vergangenheit zu verscheuchen. Erst als sich ihre Wege eines kalten Winters kreuzen, bewegt sich etwas in ihnen - und langsam, ganz langsam, beginnen sie, einander zu stützen und für die Zukunft zu starken.

    Um ihre Welt zu retten, müssen sich Pegasus, Einhörner, Zentauren, Kelpies und Menschen miteinander verbünden. Nur dann haben eine Chance gegen den machthungrigen Dromego!
    Während die Clans brüchige Allianzen formen, erfährt ganz Cavallon von einer Verschwörung: Die Zentauren haben die Clans seit hundert Jahren belogen!
    Doch den Clans bleibt nicht viel Zeit, um ihre Feindschaften zu begraben, denn Dromego setzt zu einem Angriff auf die Freie Stadt an. Ist das Bündnis der Clans stark genug, um ihn endgültig zu besiegen?

    Das große Cavallon-Finale: episch, filmreif - sagenhaft! Tauch ein in eine Tierfantasy-Welt der Extraklasse. Für alle Tierfantasy-Leser ab 10. Von den Machern der "Warrior Cats".

    Die Bücher der Reihe "Clans von Cavallon":
    Band 1 "Der Zorn des Pegasus"
    Band 2 "Der Fluch des Ozeans"
    Band 3 "Im Bann des Einhorns"
    Band 4 "Das Vermächtnis der Zentauren"

    Die Clans von Cavallon:

    Menschen wohnen im gebirgigen Norden von Cavallon und in der Freien Stadt. Dort ist der Rat von Cavallon angesiedelt, in dem alle fünf Clans repräsentiert sind. Menschen spezialisieren sich darauf, Werkzeuge und Schmuck herzustellen und damit zu handeln. In der Freien Stadt leben die Clans friedlich zusammen. Im Rest des Landes jedoch bestimmen teilweise noch immer uralte Feindschaften und Aberglaube das Leben der Menschen.

    Einhörner haben die Schwarzhornwälder im Osten Cavallons als ihr Territorium erkoren. Sie leben nach dem Recht des Stärkeren und sind geschickte Jäger und Krieger, die sich Menschen als Sklaven halten. Der Legende nach soll in früheren Zeiten einmal ein außergewöhnliches Band zwischen Menschen und Einhörnern bestanden haben, doch seit dem Krieg von Cavallon schürt diese Vorstellung unter Einhörnern große Angst.

    Den Pegasus wird für den Krieg von Cavallon die Schuld gegeben. Sie gelten als extrem selten und sind als rachsüchtige Kriegstreiber gefürchtet. Nach der Unterzeichnung des Friedenspakts zog sich die einzig verbliebene Pegasusherde ins Wolkengebirge im Nordosten des Landes zurück. Ihre Federn werden auf dem Schwarzmarkt gehandelt. Pegasus sind äußerst misstrauisch allen anderen Clans gegenüber.

    Kelpies leben in der Kalten See im Nordwesten und sind vielerorts gefürchtet. Denn sie ziehen Menschen unter Wasser und töten sie - so heißt es. Tatsächlich sehen Wasserpferde mit ihren spitzen Zähnen und kräftigen Fischschwänzen gruselig aus. Sie jagen jedoch nur Fische und ernähren sich von Algen. Nach dem Friedenspakt haben sich die Kelpies in die Unterwasserhöhlen rund um die Festungsinsel zurückgezogen.

    Zentauren leben in Corlandia, im Süden von Cavallon an der Warmen See. Sie gelten als die Gelehrten von Cavallon und die übrigen Clans erweisen ihnen höchsten Respekt. Ihre Hauptstadt ist Coropolis, dort horten die zentaurischen Chronisten alles Wissen des Landes. Sie können als einziger Clan lesen und schreiben, Menschen arbeiten für sie als analphabetische Schreiblehrlinge. Doch die Zentauren haben einen grauenhaften Pakt geschlossen und hüten ein Geheimnis, das ganz Cavallon erschüttern wird ...

    The only evidence-based book to approach viral liver disease by focusing exclusively on the clinical dilemmas encountered by hepatologists and their medical teams

    Although viral hepatitis is a growing public health risk around the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) views the elimination of hepatitis infection over the next several as an achievable goal. Effective pharmaceutical therapies are now available, yet medical teams caring for patients with viral hepatitis are challenged when looking for answers to specific questions in the current medical literature. The second edition of Clinical Dilemmas in Viral Liver Disease provides evidence-based guidance for medical teams involved in diagnosing, treating, and managing patients with viral liver disease.
