Abstract
The aim of this book is to show how feminist perspectives can extend and advance the field of nursing ethics. It engages in the broader nursing ethics project of critiquing existing ethical frameworks as well as constructing and developing alternative understandings, concepts, and methodologies. All of the contributors draw attention to the operations of power inherent in moral relationships at individual, institutional, cultural, and socio-political levels. The early essays chart the development of feminist perspectives in the field of nursing ethics from the late 19th century to the present day and consider the impact of gender roles and gendered understandings on the moral lives of nurses, patients and families. They also consider the transformative potential of feminist perspectives to widen the scope of nursing and midwifery practices to include the social, economic, cultural and political dimensions of moral decision-making in health care settings. The second half of the book draws on feminist insights to critically discuss the role of nurses and midwives in leadership, healthcare organisations, and research as well as the provision of particular forms of care e.g. care in the home and abortion care.

Abstract
This atlas provides a comprehensive, state of the art review of the use of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) for the imaging of prostate cancer, covering aspects from diagnosis and loco-regional staging through to the role of the technique after treatment and follow-up. The book contains a wealth of high-resolution images, many of them in color, and displays the anatomical-MRI pathological correlation whenever appropriate. Readers will find a helpful overview on the current standardized method for reading and reporting on mpMRI, the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS), version 2. Dedicated chapters focus on differential diagnosis and imaging pitfalls, and the inclusion of helpful diagrams and algorithms will further assist in image interpretation, enabling readers to ease and improve their use of mpMRI. Edited and written by very experienced radiologists, pathologists, and urologists; the Atlas of Multiparametric Prostate MRI will serve as a unique source of clinically relevant information and an aid to disease management for radiologists, urologists, pathologists, radiotherapists, and oncologists.

Abstract
This book provides a broad overview of quality health care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). It focuses on providing the reader a practical approach to dealing with the health and well-being of people with IDD in general terms as well as in dealing with specific conditions. In addition, it offers the reader a perspective from many different points of view in the health care delivery system as well as in different parts of the world. This is the 3rd, and much expanded edition, of a text that was first published by Rubin and Crocker in 1989 (Lea and Fibiger). The second edition was published by Rubin and Crocker in 2006 (Paul Brookes) and has been used as a formal required text in training programs for physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners as well as by administrators who are responsible for programs serving people with IDD. This book is considered the "Bible" in the field of health care for people with IDD since 1989 when the first edition came out.

Abstract
This book provides a bold and honest description of the current state of electronic health record (EHR) technologies in acute and primary care settings, and looks at the future through the lens of emerging new technologies, changes in care delivery models and reimbursement policies. This 4th Edition of Healthcare Information Management Systems: Cases, Strategies, and Solutions has been thoroughly updated, as concepts such as Meaningful Use (MU), interoperability, personalized medicine and health IT have had a considerable impact on patient safety and health outcomes. It outlines the issues of EHR adoption under MU and, as anticipated gains in efficiency, quality and costs have not always been seen, it also provides a framework within which solutions to the frustration, dissatisfaction, and growing concerns can be found. Many suggest that a technology sea change is needed with a second generation of EHRs developed on 21st century architectures that more closely match the flexibility and power of mobile and web-based applications available in the general marketplace. Building on the success of its previous three editions, this book will guide healthcare professionals as they confront the technical, organizational, and management issues related to the selection, implementation, and management of healthcare information systems. It will contribute to taking us into a healthcare system that delivers value, is a pleasure to work within, and relieves the taxpayers' burden.

Several chapters focus on the major types of endophthalmitis such as postoperative, post-intravitreal injection, bleb-related, exogenous fungal, chronic, and endogenous endophthalmitis. Other chapters describe endophthalmitis in special populations such as diabetic or immunocompromised hosts or those with a glaucoma drainage device, keratoprosthesis, or other artificial implant. Also included are chapters that provide an overview of endophthalmitis as seen around the world, summarize current understanding of endophthalmitis pathogenesis, describe the latest microbiologic and molecular diagnostic techniques, and discuss emerging problems such as multidrug-resistant pathogens. A final chapter offers recommendations for ways to prevent this devastating eye infection.

Abstract
The Schema Therapy Clinician’s Guide is a complete clinical resource for psychotherapists implementing schema therapy, group schema therapy or a combination of both in a structured, cost-effective way. The authors provide ready-made individual and group sessions with patient hand-outs. A unique resource providing ready-made individual and group schema therapy sessions, linked across schema modes, allowing clinicians to pick and choose what they need or adopt a full integrated individual and group program which can be delivered over a range of treatment lengths from a six week intensive program to a one year outpatient treatment. Approaches treatment by targeting maladaptive Schema Modes rather than specific disorders, thus increasing clinical flexibility and ensuring shelf life through changes in diagnostic classification. Provides step-by-step instructions and tips for therapists, along with a wealth of unique clinical resources including sample scripts, handouts, session exercises, assignment forms and patient materials.

Abstract
This introduction to sports injuries in children and adolescents is written in a user-friendly format and takes into account the fact that sports injuries in the pediatric population are not an easy topic for non-pediatric orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians, and non-pediatric radiologists. The book is divided into five chapters on musculoskeletal particularities in children, head and spine trauma, muscle strains and avulsion injuries, bone fractures, overuse injuries, and miscellanea. Each of these chapters comprises ten cases, and each case study includes up to four figures, a description of the clinical case, a review of the pathophysiology of the condition described in the case, and a final section on imaging findings. Sports Injuries in Children and Adolescents is a case-based book aimed at pediatricians, pediatric orthopedic surgeons, and radiologists.

Abstract
The ACL-Deficient Knee: A Problem Solving Approach, focuses on problem analysis and problem solving, as well as analyzing the possibility of prevention. In each chapter, the biomechanics, anatomy, etc. that are relevant to the topic are reviewed. There are chapters where highly specialized surgical techniques are presented (v. gr. double bundle reconstruction or meniscal transplant), as well as developing areas such as ACL tears in children, where we are finding a growing number of injuries due to the increase of sports at early ages. These chapters are written by internationally renowned specialists who are pioneers in the topics analyzed. To further enhance the educational content, there is a collection of online step by step surgical technique videos that will allow the knee specialist to perform the techniques presented in this book.

As knowledge of the biomechanical and physiological function of the knee has advanced, meniscal transplantation has become an accepted treatment approach in defined categories of patient with knee pain. In particular, it is an attractive option in the younger patient with incapacitating pain who has previously undergone a total meniscectomy and has an adequately aligned lower limb. When appropriately performed, meniscal transplantation can reduce pain, slow cartilage degeneration, and improve b…

Abstract
As knowledge of the biomechanical and physiological function of the knee has advanced, meniscal transplantation has become an accepted treatment approach in defined categories of patient with knee pain. In particular, it is an attractive option in the younger patient with incapacitating pain who has previously undergone a total meniscectomy and has an adequately aligned lower limb. When appropriately performed, meniscal transplantation can reduce pain, slow cartilage degeneration, and improve biomechanics. In this book, acknowledged experts in the field discuss all aspects of meniscal transplantation, covering the use of both allografts and meniscal substitutes, including collagen and polyurethane implants. The relevant basic science is reviewed, indications are explained, and surgical techniques are clearly described, with presentation of the results achieved to date. All the material is up to date, with information on new implants, new techniques, and new surgical approaches. Future trends in the treatment of meniscal lesions are also discussed as we move towards the application of regenerative strategies to restore meniscus function.

Abstract
Psychiatric nursing practice has changed dramatically over the past decades to accommodate vast changes in our health care system. The patients who now meet the level of care standards for an acute care setting have to be very ill and typically exhibit considerable behavioral impairments and multiple safety issues. This handbook for psychiatric nurses and nursing students reflects these changes and focuses on four particularly challenging aspects of acute psychiatric nursing practice: keeping the patient safe, stabilizing symptoms, promoting engagement in treatment, and discharge planning. In a systematic, easy-to-access format, the book offers proven, clinically useful interventions designed to modify and manage disruptive patient behavior. Also included is a chapter on overcoming one's own barriers to effective nursing in the difficult psychiatric environment.
