How do diseases and disorders affect the design of massage treatment plans? What precautions are needed? When is massage contraindicated? Develop the knowledge you need to evaluate a client based on how diseases and disorders affect the systems of the body and the critical-thinking skills to apply that knowledge in practice. "A 'functional approach' to pathophysiology fosters understanding of the inter-relationship between body systems and human function. Clients are concerned about how a disorder affects their quality of life and ability to function. My goal for this book is to guide readers to use clinical reasoning to create client-specific, outcome-based massage treatment plans from this vital information--signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and client functional concerns."--Virginia S.

"Transitioning to rural practice can be daunting for both experienced nurses and new graduates who have an urban orientation and are accustomed to specialized practice with abundant health care resources. Since most nursing education programs and practicing nurses are located in urban settings, programs are needed to prepare nurses who choose rural practice. In their book, Dr. Molinari and Dr. Bushy provide excellent examples of practice models from North America, New Zealand, and Australia with curricula that address transition issues. The text makes a significant contribution to the discussion about how to best prepare nurses for rural practice and will be of interest to administrators, educators, and clinicians. From the Foreward by Charlene A. Winters, PhD, APRN, ACNS-BC Associate Professor Montana State University College of Nursing This is the only volume to address the pressing need for practical information about transitioning from an urban-based nursing education or practice to a rural health care environment. It provides successful strategies that nurses in rural settings can use to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative programs that will meet the needs of individual rural communities. The book details current rural nursing transition-to-practice trends and issues, national standards, and evidence-based model programs worldwide. Rural practice culture is described along with professional education issues, competency, patient care, and safety. Chapters are presented in easy-to-access formats that offer ready solutions for problems commonly encountered in rural practice such as nurse recruitment and retention. In addition to health care delivery issues for specific rural populations, the book presents program descriptions from local to state levels, including locally developed education programs, urban hospital systems outreach to rural facilities, universities collaborating with rural businesses, city-based workshops, statewide competencies tracked by employers, and a distance education program customized by rural agencies. Case studies demonstrate how rural facilities-even the smallest and most isolated-are advancing health care through nurse support. The text will be of value to rural nursing staff developers, critical access hospitals and community clinic administrators, rural professional organizations, small urban health facilities, continuing education providers, nursing workforce centers, and graduate programs. Key Features: The first transition from academia-to-practice guide for rural nursing Charts evidence-based successes and offers model programs in different rural settings Provides rural-specific information to facilitate statewide health mandates Features residency program development processes, with tips and tools that work

Leadership vs. Followership: Durch welche fachlichen Kompetenzen und personlichen Eigenschaften sich eine Fuhrungspersonlichkeit auszeichnen sollte, um den Anforderungen des jeweiligen Jobs gerecht zu werden, wurde in der Literatur hinlanglich beleuchtet. Dabei ist es vollig irrelevant ob der Vorgesetzte die Position des Chefs, des Managers oder eines "einfachen" Abteilungsleiters einnimmt. Es gibt aber noch andere Fragen, die es zu beantworten gilt: Was wollen die Fuhrenden von ihren Mitarbeitern? Was glauben die Mitarbeiter wird von Ihnen erwartet? Welche Eigenschaften wunschen sich die Vorgesetzten von ihren Mitarbeitern? Wie schatzen die Mitarbeiter sich selbst ein? Was versteht ein Fuhrender unter einem "guten Mitarbeiter"? Dieses Buch stellt auf Grundlage einer empirischen Analyse deutscher Unternehmen die bisherige Betrachtungsweise auf den Kopf und fragt erstmals nicht nach den Kompetenzen des Fuhrenden, sondern nach denen der Gefuhrten. Der Autor schafft dem Leser mit diesem wissenschaftlichen Werk einen neuen Blickwinkel. Er zeigt sehr schnell, worauf es den Vorgesetzen ankommt und in welchen Bereichen die Mitarbeiter sich selbst falsch einschatzen. Der Leser kommt schliesslich in den Genuss zu erfahren, was die Fuhrenden unter einem "guten Mitarbeiter" verstehen und kann sich am Ende die Frage beantworten: Was verlangt mein Vorgesetzter wirklich von mir?

Designated a Doody's Core Title! At the intersection of health care delivery and practice there lies a large area of patient care with no manual: how to provide the best care to patients who have a critically low level of comprehension and literacy. Because all patients play a central role in the outcome of their own health care, competent health care becomes almost impossible for caregivers when the boundary of low literary skills is present. In a concise and well-written format you will learn: Common myths about low literacy Examples of low health care literacy How to recognize patients with low literacy Strategies to help patients with low literacy and reduce medical errors Cultural issues in health literacy Ways to create a patient-friendly office environment How to improve patient communication Guidelines to target and overcome common problems practitioners encounter This clear, well written book is packed with examples and tips and will serve as a much needed guide for primary care providers, nurse practitioners, hospital administrators, and others who are looking for ways to improve their communication with patients and provide the most beneficial health care to their low-literacy patients.
