A book based on decades of occupational health experience in the industrial clinic setting This book focuses on the development and administration of independent facilities or departments devoted to the injured worker. Until recently, this area was a largely ignored aspect of occupational health. Now, solo practitioners, partnerships, small and large multispecialty groups, HMOs, and hospitals are showing tremendous interest in developing single purpose facilities or divisions related to this type of practice. Basic Occupational Medicine: A Guide to Developing Delivery Systems addresses the critical need for a guide that explains startup considerations, maintaining the operation, and caring for patients. Topics discussed include proper reporting and charting; the nature of examinations and screening; the role of the Physician's Assistant; working with in-plant nurses; and maintaining relationships with physicians in other departments and the community. A special section is devoted to starting up and operating a facility, including critical information such as advertising and marketing, staffing, equipment, and site location. The book also contains an index with samples of types of forms needed for this business. Basic Occupational Medicine: A Guide to Developing Delivery Systems will benefit administrators, hospital directors, group medical directors, urgent care center directors, physician's assistants, occupational health nurses, insurance carriers, and employers involved with industrial health clinics.

Religion ohne Gott

Das Zentrum wahrer Religiosität, so der bekennende Atheist Albert Einstein, sei die Ehrfurcht vor den Mysterien des Universums, »deren höchste Weisheit und strahlende Schönheit wir mit unseren matten Erkenntnisvermögen nur rudimentär begreifen können«. In diesem Sinne sei er, Einstein, ein tiefreligiöser Mensch. Aber was ist religiös an einer solchen Haltung, in der Gott offensichtlich keine Rolle spielt? Mit dieser Frage beschäftigte sich Ronald Dworkin in seinen Einstein-Vorlesungen, die er bis kurz vor seinem Tod zu diesem Buch ausgearbeitet hat. Religion, so seine Antwort, bezeichnet eine Sicht auf die Welt, die von einem tiefen Glauben an objektive Werte getragen wird – etwa daran, dass Geschöpfe eine Würde haben, dass ein Leben erfüllt oder verfehlt sein kann oder dass Schönheit, die uns den Atem raubt, sich nicht als pures Produkt unserer Sinnesorgane erklären lässt. Auch Theisten teilen diese Werte, meinen aber, sie seien gottgegeben. Für Dworkin verhält es sich genau umgekehrt: Die Idee eines Gottes rührt daher, dass es diese Werte wirklich gibt. Und an Gott (oder Götter) zu glauben ist eine Weise, dies auszudrücken, aber nicht die einzige. Von der Physik über die Politik bis hin zum Recht erkundet »Religion ohne Gott« den Perspektivwechsel, der mit einem solchen gottlosen Verständnis von Religion verbunden ist. Das Buch, das mit einer eindrucksvollen Reflexion über Tod und Unsterblichkeit schließt, ist das Vermächtnis eines bekennenden religiösen Atheisten. Es weitet den Blick für das, was wichtig ist.
