Abstract
This open access book offers essential information on values-based practice (VBP): the clinical skills involved, teamwork and person-centered care, links between values and evidence, and the importance of partnerships in shared decision-making. Different cultures have different values; for example, partnership in decision-making looks very different, from the highly individualized perspective of European and North American cultures to the collective and family-oriented perspectives common in South East Asia. In turn, African cultures offer yet another perspective, one that falls between these two extremes (called batho pele). The book will benefit everyone concerned with the practical challenges of delivering mental health services. Accordingly, all contributions are developed on the basis of case vignettes, and cover a range of situations in which values underlie tensions or uncertainties regarding how to proceed in clinical practice. Examples include the patient’s autonomy and best interest, the physician’s commitment to establishing high standards of clinical governance, clinical versus community best interest, institutional versus clinical interests, patients insisting on medically unsound but legal treatments etc. Thus far, VBP publications have mainly dealt with clinical scenarios involving individual values (of clinicians and patients). Our objective with this book is to develop a model of VBP that is culturally much broader in scope. As such, it offers a vital resource for mental health stakeholders in an increasingly inter-connected world. It also offers opportunities for cross-learning in values-based practice between cultures with very different clinical care traditions.

Abstract
Implementing safety practices in healthcare saves lives and improves the quality of care: it is therefore vital to apply good clinical practices, such as the WHO surgical checklist, to adopt the most appropriate measures for the prevention of assistance-related risks, and to identify the potential ones using tools such as reporting & learning systems. The culture of safety in the care environment and of human factors influencing it should be developed from the beginning of medical studies and in the first years of professional practice, in order to have the maximum impact on clinicians' and nurses' behavior. Medical errors tend to vary with the level of proficiency and experience, and this must be taken into account in adverse events prevention. Human factors assume a decisive importance in resilient organizations, and an understanding of risk control and containment is fundamental for all medical and surgical specialties. This open access book offers recommendations and examples of how to improve patient safety by changing practices, introducing organizational and technological innovations, and creating effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable care systems, in order to spread the quality and patient safety culture among the new generation of healthcare professionals, and is intended for residents and young professionals in different clinical specialties.

Abstract
Now in its second edition, this popular text remains a comprehensive study and review aid for the radiation oncology trainee and practicing radiation oncologist. The updated Radiation Oncology Study Guide, 2e maintains its robust Q&A format, and has been comprehensively updated to include the latest staging information and treatment methods. Answer rationales have been modified to a more readable, high yield bulleted format. Each chapter covers a major disease site and is divided into two main parts: Questions & Answers and Rationale. Questions review the scope of clinical practice, spanning from initial presentation to complications of treatment. General content and work-up questions emphasize “pearls” of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, clinical presentation, and staging. Treatment content questions not only review evidence-based data guiding treatment recommendations, but also practical aspects of radiation treatment planning, pertinent radiobiology and physics, and complications of treatment. This book is an ideal resource for physicians-in-training to prepare for initial written and oral exams and physicians in practice to maintain their skills and prepare for maintenance of certification longitudinal and written exams.

Abstract
This book presents cutting-edge surgical techniques and the new operating rooms supporting them, as well as their future developments. In recent years, with the advances in surgical medicine, surgical techniques have undergone great changes. However, safety and reliability are still the major requirements of the operating room, and these are closely linked to the patients’ wellbeing. The new medical instruments and medical materials being developed to perform surgery more safely, reliably and efficiently are vital technologies supporting this. “New techniques” involve the introduction of innovative medical instruments and medical materials, and these, too, are increasing in terms of performance and size every year. Surgery and Operating Room Innovation discusses these issues from the perspective of various professionals involved with operating rooms.

Abstract
The aim of this book is to educate and train practitioners in the safe and professional use of diagnostic ultrasound imaging in the visualization and interpretation of various cerebral conditions not only in neurointensive care, but also in the operating room and, in general, cardiothoracic and neurocritical care settings. It is chiefly intended for anaesthetists and intensivists with a basic knowledge of ultrasound physics, but also for neurosurgeons and neurologists. All chapters were coordinated by the Editors, with experiences in hands-on courses on Echography and Doppler of the Brain, and prepared by international experts. The book covers from basic principles to estimation of intracranial pressure and cerebral perfusion. The topics cover emergency department and prehospital brain US as part of POCUS and US multiorgan evaluation to general intensive care, neurointensive care and anesthesia, including special populations as pregnant and children and setting as LMIC. Clinical scenarios complete the book. An innovative and unique guide that equips readers to perform bedside and non-invasive assessments for a range of cerebrovascular diseases.

Abstract
In an era of high demand for aesthetic procedures, this text provides a practical and comprehensive look at facial cosmetic surgery to ensure practitioners have the best information available for treating their patients. The editors have extensive academic experience and have authored multiple scientific publications, while the contributions included in the text have been written by experts and leaders in the field. Applied Head and Neck Anatomy for the Facial Cosmetic Surgeon is for a multi-disciplinary audience including oral & maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, cosmetic surgeons, and dentists. Divided into three distinct sections for ease of use, the first section focuses exclusively on localized anesthesia for each region of the head and neck. Chapters focus on the techniques that best affect these regions with a chapter closing the first section, on managing potential anesthetic complications. The second section covers the regional anatomy of the face by offering high definition photos of cadaver dissections and anatomic illustrations to highlight pertinent muscle and bone structures. The third and final section combines the skills detailed in the first two sections and applies them to a variety of surgical, cosmetic procedures. .

This book discusses disorders affecting the hip joint as well as its related structures, to help orthopedists develop an integrated way of thinking, and improve their decision-making strategies and treatment skills. The specific anatomy of the hip joint and the related structures provides vital motor functions. It also presents a challenge for orthopedists in terms of early diagnosis of disorders, which is essential for appropriate and effective treatment. The first part of the book provides a step-by-step introduction to intra-articular and abarticular hip disorders in both adults and children. It then describes the techniques and practicalities of managing various conditions in detail, presenting stereoscopic chromatic line drawings along with intraoperative illustrated figures. By demonstrating the regional anatomy, pathophysiology and related disorders in hip region, this book helps readers gain an understanding based on basic science and clinical research. It also offers instructive guidance to learners at different levels, including orthopedists, general practitioners and rehabilitation practitioners.
