Essentials for Nursing Practice, 9th Edition combines everything you need from your fundamentals course and streamlines it into a format that’s perfect for busy nursing students. The ninth edition retains many classic features, including chapter case studies, procedural guidelines, and special considerations for various age groups, along with new content including a chapter on Complementary and Alternative Therapies, interactive clinical case studies on Evolve, a new Reflective Learning section, and QSEN activities to encourage active learning. Thoroughly reviewed by nursing clinical experts and educators, this new edition ensures you learn nursing Essentials with the most accurate, up-to-date, and easy-to-understand book on the market. Progressive case studies are introduced at the beginning of the chapter and are then used to tie together the care plan, concept map, and clinical decision-making exercises. Focused Patient Assessment tables include actual questions to help you learn how to effectively phrase questions to patients as well as target physical assessment techniques. Nursing skills at the end of each chapter feature full-bleed coloring on the edge of the page to make them easy to locate. Safety guidelines for nursing skills sections precede each skills section to help you focus on safe and effective skills performance. Detailed care plans in the text and on Evolve demonstrate the application of the 5-step nursing process to individual patient problems to help you understand how a plan is developed and how to evaluate care. Unexpected outcomes and related interventions for skills alert you to possible problems and appropriate nursing action. Patient Teaching boxes help you plan effective teaching by first identifying an outcome, then developing strategies on how to teach, and finally, implementing measures to evaluate learning. Care of the Older Adult boxes highlight key aspects of nursing assessment and care for this growing population. Key points neatly summarize the most important content for each chapter to help you review and evaluate learning. Evidence-Based Practice boxes include a PICO question, summary of the results of a research study, and a F description of how the study has affected nursing practice — in every chapter. Patient-Centered Care boxes address racial and ethnic diversity along with the cultural differences that impact socioeconomic status, values, geography, and religion. 65 Skills and procedural guidelines provide clear, step-by-step instructions for providing safe nursing care. 5-step nursing process provides a consistent framework for clinical chapters. Concept maps visually demonstrate planning care for patients with multiple diagnoses. NOC outcomes, NIC interventions, and NANDA diagnoses are incorporated in care plans to reflect the standard used by institutions nationwide.

In the UK some 11.5m people already live with a recognised disability and more than a fifth of them experience some difficulty when using transport networks. So it's essential that the Department for Transport delivers an ambitious Accessibility Action Plan. Changes made ahead of the 2012 Paralympic Games delivered access for disabled people to significantly more parts of the public transport network for the first time and highlighted the immense value of such improvements for all. Yet a year later, there is a risk that some of the momentum from London 2012 is being lost because further key accessibility improvements planned have been watered-down or abandoned. The Committee's recommendations include: imposing penalties on bus operators who claim to offer accessible routes but then fail to provide accessible buses; the phased introduction of audio-visual information systems on all buses over the next ten years; phasing out the need for disabled travellers having to book organised assistance in advance; financial incentives to encourage investment in fully accessible vehicles by taxi and private care hire vehicle operators; and a change to EU rules so that in future airlines are required to allow carers to travel free of charge when the airline judges a disabled person incapable of travelling independently. The Cabinet Office should convene a working group of ministers and officials to improve cross-government working on accessibility in order to secure the full benefits to be gained from widening disabled people's access to employment and training, healthcare and wider participation in all parts of society

It has been known for quite some time that ICT can directly improve corporate performance if it is employed in an appropriate way. There are many stories of how organisations have been transformed by the use of this technology. However it is also known that it is not a simple task to employ ICT effectively. Many organisations have spent considerable sums of money and had only very modest returns. This book addresses the issues of how to deliver significant improvements in corporate performance through the use of ICT and it offers different models which can be of assistance to organisational leaders in this respect. These models are brought to life by analysing a series of real life case studies encompassing both successes and failures in the adoption of ICT, from which deep insights on how to apply this technology for competitive advantage are extracted. The book is suitable for both ICT professionals and for members of senior management including CEOs. It has been written in an accessible way so that it will also be of value to academics who offer courses in ICT strategy and implementation. It will expose their students to the dilemmas of management decisions concerning the different uses of ICT and its role in value creation. 260 Pages

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.
