The Hematology, Oncology and Nephrology service at the IWK recognizes that the journey of a life-threatening illness is a hard one, with many challenges and adjustments along the way. Because of this, the team has an ‘End of Treatment’ bell. The bell is there for children and youth to ring at milestone moments. Ringing the bell means that a child or youth has finished their course of treatment and is ready for the next chapter of their life.

Abstract
Written for pediatric dermatologists, fellows, dermatology residents and medical students rotating in pediatric dermatology, this book covers topics ranging from atopic dermatitis, drug eruptions, neonatal inpatient dermatology, abuse, and skin signs of other systemic diseases. Inpatient Pediatric Dermatology is an emerging subspecialty of Pediatric Dermatology, yet little has been written for the practicing physician treating these young patients in the hospital. Case-based Inpatient Pediatric Dermatology fills that void and uses case-based examples to highlight common and uncommon presentations of dermatologic disease in the hospitalized pediatric patient. Complete with useful color illustrations and photographs, this book is the go-to guide for clinicians treating hospitalized pediatric dermatology patients.

Abstract
This innovative and important book describes a practical and clinically-relevant approach to the 'difficult' psychiatric consultation. The authors systematically examine psychodynamic theories, family systems theories, and legal and ethical aspects of these consultations. Difficult Psychiatric Consultations: An Integrated Approach is unique compared to most psychiatric texts, in that it weaves traditional concepts in understanding a person and their family with contemporary developmental and relational concepts. The importance of these concepts, when applied to the study of the complexities and the interplay between patients, treatment teams and patients' families in today's medical centers, is brought to life through rich, real-life clinical examples. These powerful clinical vignettes allow the reader to put himself in the psychiatric consultant's shoes as he navigates practical interventions to improve the outcomes of 'difficult' consultations. To that end, the authors provide tables to outline pre and post diagnosis observable patterns of the parties involved in the psychiatric consultation. This book has much to offer to general psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, psychologists, nurse practitioners and social workers.

Abstract
This timely study analyzes social, economic, political, provider, and patient factors shaping collective patient involvement in European health care from the postwar period to the present day. Examining representative countries England, the Netherlands, Germany, and Sweden, it documents the roles of providers and legislatures in facilitating consumer involvement, and the varied forms of patient input into hospital operations. These findings are compared and contrasted against the intent and ideals behind patient involvement to assess the effectiveness of implementation policy, strengths and drawbacks of patient participation, and patient satisfaction and outcomes. The book's conclusions identify emerging forms of patient participation andápredict the impact of health policy on the future of European collective patient involvement. Included in the coverage: Patient involvement: who, what for, and in what way? The Netherlands: the legislative process to collective patient involvement England: formal means of public involvement'a continuous story of discontinuity Germany: Joint Federal Committee'the "Little Legislator" Sweden: reasons for a late emergence of patient involvement Lessons to be learned from implementing patient involvement. The Evolution and Everyday Practice of Collective Patient Involvement in Europe will interest and inspire scholars and researchers in diverse fields, including social policy, sociology, political sciences, and nursing studies, as well as patient organizations, policymakers, and healthcare providers. .

Abstract
Inpatient Dermatology is a concise and portable resource that synthesizes the most essential material to help physicians with recognition, differential diagnosis, work-up, and treatment of dermatologic issues in the hospitalized patient. Complete with hundreds of clinical and pathologic images, this volume is both an inpatient dermatology atlas and a practical guide to day-one, initial work-up, and management plan for common and rare skin diseases that occur in the inpatient setting. Each chapter is a bulleted, easy-to-read reference that focuses on one specific inpatient dermatologic condition, with carefully curated clinical photographs and corresponding histopathologic images to aid readers in developing clinical-pathologic correlation for the dermatologic diseases encountered in the hospital. Before each subsection the editors share diagnostic pearls, explaining their approach to these challenging conditions. This book is structured to be useful to physicians, residents, and medical students. It spans dermatology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, infectious disease, and rheumatology. Inpatient Dermatology is the go-to guide for hospital-based skin diseases, making even the most complex inpatient dermatologic issues approachable and understandable for any clinician.

Abstract
This book offers mental health guidelines for all medical professionals facing the emerging challenges presented by an aging population worldwide. The text acknowledges that as the geriatric demographic grows, limited resources and infrastructures demand quality protocols to deliver inpatient geriatric psychiatric care, and that many physicians may not be trained to address these specific needs. This text fills this gap with guidelines assessing, diagnosing, and treating aging patients as they present in the emergency room and other settings. Unlike any other text, this book focuses on how to optimize the use of the inpatient setting by recommending evaluations and treatments, and offering flow-charts and figures of key points, to guide both general workup and continued evaluation and treatment. This approach aims to minimize instances of premature release or readmissions and to improve outcomes. Chapters cover the various issues that clinicians face when working with an older patient, including legal topics, limitations to treatment, prescription-related complications, patients struggling with substance abuse, and various behavioral concerns. Written by experts in the field, the text takes a multidisciplinary approach to deliver high-quality care as needs of the aging population evolve. Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry is a vital resource for all clinicians working with an aging population, including geriatricians, psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care providers, hospitalists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, emergency room and geriatric nurses, social workers, and trainees.

Foundations of Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry -- Essential medical work-up and rule-outs -- Neuropsychological assessment -- Pharmacological overview in geriatrics: pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, laboratory -- Interdisciplinary roles and interface -- Legal aspects of inpatient geriatric psychiatry -- Part II.
