Abstract
Properly run group visit programs offer patient-centered care that can improve access, quality, outcomes, productivity, revenues, and both patient and physician satisfaction. The ABCs of Group Visits is a concise implementation manual that guides readers through a 10-week pipeline to design and launch a successful customized group visit program in any practice, large or small. The group visit model is highly adaptable and has been used to great success for follow-up visits, physical examinations, new patient intakes, and chronic disease management (among other applications) and can offer hope to beleaguered primary and specialty care physicians, Medicare, and Medicaid. Ideal for physicians, healthcare administrators and executive leaders alike, The ABCs of Group Visits contains all the vital information to help solve many of the problems facing busy, backlogged physicians and bring joy back into the practice of medicine. "Group visits are just the type of 'win-win' innovation that healthcare needs today'improving outcomes, enhancing service, and at their best, reducing costs and burden on both clinicians and those they serve."á Don Berwick, MD, former President and CEO of IHI "Group visits offer an innovation to healthcare that can drive improvements to quality, outcomes, service, and productivity in all spheres in medicine'plus, as demonstrated in our substantial experience with them at Cleveland Clinic, yield high levels of patient and physician satisfaction in a wide variety of specialties." David L. Bronson, MD, FACP, President and CEO, Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals; Professor of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Abstract
Alcohol, Nutrition, and Health Consequences provides practical, data-driven resources to help the reader understand the basics, treatments and preventive strategies that are involved in the understanding of how alcohol may affect healthy individuals as well as those with chronic alcohol use with or without relevant infectious diseases, obesity, diabetes and/or neurocognitive declines. It will also help the clinician define the causes and types of nutritional changes due to alcohol use and also explain how nutrition can be used to ameliorate its consequences. Chapters present the application of current nutritional knowledge by physicians and dietitians. Specific areas involving alcohol-related damage due to nutritional changes are reviewed, including heart disease, obesity, digestive tract cancers, lactation, brain function, and liver disease. In addition, alcohol's effects on absorption of minerals and nutrients, a key role in causing damage are treated. The importance of diet in modifying alcohol and its metabolite damage is also explained. Alcohol, Nutrition, and Health Consequences is essential reading for alcohol therapists and researchers as well as primary care physicians and dietitians and is an easy reference to help the clinician, student, and dietitian comprehend the complex changes caused by direct and indirect effects of ethanol at the cellular level via its nutritional modification.

Abstract
This volume provides fresh insights and management understanding of the changing role of the ambulance services against the backdrop of massive cuts in health budgets around the world and the changing context of pre-hospital care within the wider healthcare networks. The challenges of funding, training and cultural transformation are now felt globally. The book offers critical insights into the theory and practice of strategic and operational management of ambulance services and the leadership needs for the service. One of the highlight of this volume is to bring together scholarship using experts--academics, practitioners and professionals in the field, to each of the chosen topics. The chapters are based in the practical experiences of the authors and are written in a way that is accessible and suitable for a range of audiences. We are confident that this book will cater to a wider audience to inform policy and practice, both in the UK and internationally. Paresh Wankhade is Professor of Leadership and Management at Edge Hill University, UK Kevin Mackway-Jones is the Medical Director at North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, UK. This unique and valuable publication, charts the history and development of the ambulance service in England over the last hundred years or so. The role of this key emergency service has always been important, and arguably never more so than today. The contributing authors have not only provided the reader with great insights into where the service has come from and the leadership challenges it has, and continues to face; it also gives examples of how the future could look as our journey of transformation continues. Peter Bradley CBE, MBA (and author of Taking Healthcare to the Patient 2005), Chief Executive Officer. St John National Headquarters, New Zealand "With a year on year increase in demand for emergency ambulances and over 9 million calls annually, the UK Ambulance Service must change from its emergency care and transport focus model. Whilst there is some historical and cultural resistance to change there is a need for further development in clinical skills and a new perspective for the future Ambulance Service. This book brings together practitioners, managers, academics and provides a broad understanding of the major management issues in the UK Ambulance Service. It includes the history of the Ambulance Service, quality and risk management issues, commissioning, leadership, intra-operability and shape of the future ambulance service. The content will be of interest to students, practitioners and academics". Sir Keith Porter, Professor of Clinical Traumatology, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom.
