The administration of drug treatments in hospitals has become increasingly complex. It sometimes involves potent drugs that may be fatal if administered incorrectly. The ability to perform drug calculations accurately is therefore paramount to prevent placing patients at risk.

It provides step-by-step guidance to carry out accurate drug calculations, with units and drug strengths clearly explained. This bestselling pocket-size book begins with the basic mathematical skills required to perform calculations, including tips on estimating answers.

Two separate chapters focus on children and the elderly, addressing specific challenges encountered in these populations. Helpful worked examples, key points, and objectives are included in every chapter. Useful tables with common prescription abbreviations, estimation of renal function, and body surface area estimates are easily accessible through the appendices.

"Das Buch bietet eine exzellente Ergänzung zu den beiden Büchern von Kaplan und Norton. Es werden die Details und Prozesse erklärt, welche Projektmanager beachten sollten, wenn sie die Mess- und Managementsysteme für die Balanced Scorecard in ihre Organisation einführen." Aus dem Vorwort von Robert S. Kaplan Balanced Scorecard ist das effektivste und verbreitetste Managementsystem, um auf der Basis von Finanzkennzahlen strategische Entscheidungen zu treffen. Dieses bewährte Kennzahlen-System ermöglicht die Messung der Performance und die Steuerung des Unternehmens. Sehr praxisorientiert und topaktuell wird von Paul Niven diese ausgereifte Methode präsentiert. Der Autor zeigt Schritt für Schritt, wie Balanced Scorecard eingeführt und in das bestehende Managementsystem implementiert wird: Wie erfasse ich ideelle Werte, wie intellektuelles Kapital oder Kundenbeziehungen? Wie verbinde ich aktuelle Finanzzahlen mit zukünftigem Wachstumspotenzial? Und wie nutze ich Balanced Scorecard, um die Unternehmensorganisation neu auszurichten? Einen Schwerpunkt des Buches bildet das Updating, das heißt die kontinuierliche Aktualisierung und Verbesserung der Balanced Scorecard. Da sich Unternehmen und Märkte dynamisch entwickeln, ist diese niemals abgeschlossen. Ständig müssen die Kennzahlen überprüft, die Ziele neu definiert beziehungsweise die Strategie angepasst werden. Das Buch zeigt auch, wie diese Prozesse zur bestmöglichen Nutzung von Balanced Scorecard automatisiert werden können.

Classroom tested and reviewed, the second Canadian edition draws upon the strengths of a successful first Canadian edition and eight US editions that have together helped over 600,000 faculty and students allay math anxiety and more confidently perform accurate calculations. This text is directed at the student or professional who feels uncomfortable with mathematics and wants to improve their ability to perform accurate drug dosage calculations. As a pioneer Canadian text in the topic of medication calculations, the authors have transcended provincial practices to provide a nation-wide perspective on dosage calculations. The International System (SI) of units is used almost exclusively and medication dosages and drug labels have been vetted with the current Canadian drug data base, so that you, as a beginning professional, will be able to recognize and interpret drug labels and dosages. The importance of avoiding medication errors is also highlighted by the incorporation of applied critical thinking skills, to prepare you for real-life nursing practice situations. This winning combination of Canadian labels, life-size photos and an easy-to-follow three-Step approach to Dosage Calculations, makes this text is a must-have for all Canadian nursing students.

Der Staat / Politeia

Mit seinem Werk Politeia ("Der Staat") wurde Platon zum Begründer einer neuen literarischen Gattung: der politisch-philosophischen Utopie. Schon im Altertum versuchten eine Reihe von Autoren ihm nachzueifern (Theopompos, Euhemeros, Iambulos, parodistisch auch Lukian), und nachdem Thomas Morus mit dem namengebenden Werk "Utopia" (1516) die Gattung gleichsam neu belebt hatte, entstand eine nicht mehr zu überblickende Flut utopischer Entwürfe. Doch nicht nur durch die hier entfaltete Staatslehre erwies sich die "Politeia" als grundlegendes und richtungsweisendes Werk: Platons Ausführungen zu solch verschiedenen philosophischen Gebieten wie der Theorie der Erziehung, der Theorie der Dichtung, der Ethik und Tugendlehre, der Seelenlehre haben die Diskussion bis in unsere Tage beeinflusst. Platon ist aber auch ein Sprachkünstler, der seine Werke als Dialog-"Dramen" meisterhaft gestaltete. Dabei weiß er sich souverän von dem Medium Schrift zu distanzieren, das drei Hauptmängel aufweist: Sie sagt immer dasselbe, kann auf Fragen nicht antworten; sie wendet sich unterschiedslos an alle, weiß nicht, zu wem sie reden und zu wem sie schweigen soll; und wird sie angegriffen, so kann sie sich nicht selbst zur Hilfe kommen. Dass der Kern der platonischen Ideenlehre nicht in dafür ungeeignete Köpfe "gepflanzt" werden kann, beweist das Erste Buch: Das aufgezwungene Gespräch über die Gerechtigkeit mit Polemarchos und dem Sophisten Thrasymachos endet in einer Aporie (so wie Platons Versuche, seine politische Theorie in die Praxis umzusetzen, an der mangelnden Eignung des jungen Herrschers von Syrakus, Dionysios II., scheitern mussten). Erst als Platon (von Buch II an) mit seinen Brüdern Glaukon und Adeimantos das Gesprächsthema wieder aufgreift, kann der Funken der Erkenntnis überspringen, und "Einsicht leuchtet auf".
