Nurse educators and managers of nursing schools function within the dynamics of a kaleidoscope of environments - in their schools, within the parameters of professional and higher education policies and legislation, and, in South Africa, in an extremely diverse society. Since they are part of the global nursing community, the realities of international standards compound their responsibilities. Nurse educators' guide to management acknowledges these challenges and aims to empower nurse educators and managers of nursing schools by creating awareness of areas that need to be explored and embraced to function effectively. Nurse educators' guide to management has been thoroughly revised to ensure relevance and currency. Two new chapters have been included - one on the essential technological environment and its management in the education of nurses, and the other on the management environment and its dynamics in a nursing school today. Nurse educators' guide to management also addresses the philosophical and socio-cultural, professional and ethical, leadership and quality challenges that a nursing school has to face as well as the healthcare, regulatory and educational environments in which a nursing school in South Africa functions. The mission of a nursing school in society and how it empowers through alliances and networking are extensively explored. This book is aimed at educators, managers of nursing schools and students preparing themselves for a career in nursing education. The authors of the book are experienced nursing professionals with a special interest in the education of nurses and the advancement of the structures, processes and outcomes of nursing education at institutional and national levels.

Take a look at the people around you. Now look closer. Is the middle-aged man in front of you right to be worried about the twinge in his chest? Why is the little girl coughing? Hayfever? Asthma? Or something more serious? And what about you? What are you carrying with you? Doctors know our deepest secrets, our private worries and our most vulnerable moments. We ask so much of them—to heal, to trust, to care, to listen—and under their gaze we are all equally worthy of help. 34 Patients is the breathtaking and uplifting memoir of a doctor who dares to look closer at a crowded waiting room, and value each soul and story he encounters. Through stories of the patients he has helped, lost, and those who have changed him forever, Dr Tom Templeton weaves a profound and moving portrait of humanity, asking us to treat all with compassion.

'Delightfully horrifying.'--Popular Science
One of Mental Floss's Best Books of 2018
One of Science Friday's Best Science Books of 2018

· A mysterious epidemic of dental explosions…
· A teenage boy who got his wick stuck in a candlestick...
· A remarkable woman who, like a human fountain, spurted urine from virtually every orifice...

These are just a few of the anecdotal gems that have until now lain undiscovered in medical journals for centuries. This fascinating collection of historical curiosities explores some of the strangest cases that have perplexed doctors across the world.

From seventeenth-century Holland to Tsarist Russia, from rural Canada to a whaler in the Pacific, many are monuments to human stupidity - such as the sailor who swallowed dozens of penknives to amuse his shipmates, or the chemistry student who in 1850 arrived at a hospital in New York with his penis trapped inside a bottle, having unwisely decided to relieve himself into a vessel containing highly reactive potassium. Others demonstrate exceptional surgical ingenuity long before the advent of anaesthesia - such as a daring nineteenth-century operation to remove a metal fragment from beneath a conscious patient's heart. We also hear of the weird, often hilarious remedies employed by physicians of yore - from crow's vomit to port-wine enemas - the hazards of such everyday objects as cucumbers and false teeth, and miraculous recovery from apparently terminal injuries.

Blending fascinating history with lacerating wit, The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth will take you on a tour of some of the funniest, strangest and most wince-inducing corners of medical history.

Little has been said about South Africa's current administrative transformation. This title addresses the changes from a predominantly white bureaucracy to a democratic one, and provides a basic guide to the new public administration system in South Africa. The authors have steered away from a theoretical, unintelligible academic style, and have used simple language and informative diagrams. The title is intended for practitioners, students and laypersons alike.

Primary health care in South Africa is mainly delivered by clinical nurse practitioners with the support of family physicians. South African clinical nurse practitioner's manual, an adaptation of South African family practice manual, focuses on practical skills that clinical nurse practitioners should obtain during their training and will use in their professional practice. South African clinical nurse practitioner's manual deals with aspects of clinical examination and common procedures, as well as key proficiencies in areas of communication, occupational health, research, teaching and health care administration. It provides the theory and the practical steps of routine skills as well as emergency care over a full spectrum of primary care - from the newborn to the elderly. It also looks at topical issues in the South African context, including community-orientated primary care. Contents include the following: General assessment and physical examination; consultation and communication; interpretation of laboratory results; algorithms for emergencies; community-based interventions; developing clinical guidelines; writing articles for publication. Owing to the fact that clinical nurse practitioner training is becoming more formalised in all provinces, this manual forms an integral part of these training programmes, and should prove invaluable to this field of nursing.

A Financial Times Best Book of the Year
The most timely and informative history book you will read this year, tracing a century of pandemics, with a new chapter on COVID-19.
Ever since the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic, scientists have dreamed of preventing catastrophic outbreaks of infectious disease. Yet, despite a century of medical progress, viral and bacterial disasters continue to take us by surprise, inciting panic and dominating news cycles. From the Spanish flu and the 1924 outbreak of pneumonic plague in Los Angeles, to the 1930 'parrot fever' pandemic and the more recent SARS, Ebola, Zika and - now - COVID-19 epidemics, the last 100 years have been marked by a succession of unanticipated pandemic alarms.
In The Pandemic Century, Mark Honigsbaum chronicles 100 years of history in 10 outbreaks. Bringing us right up-to-date with a new chapter on COVID-19, this fast-paced, critically-acclaimed book combines science history, medical sociology and thrilling front-line reportage to deliver the story of our times.
As we meet dedicated disease detectives, obstructive public health officials, and gifted scientists often blinded by their own expertise, we come face-to-face with the brilliance and medical hubris shaping both the frontier of science - and the future of humanity's survival.

Ethics and the dental team uses case studies to demonstrate how to identify, analyse and apply ethical, moral and value concepts to scenarios that are encountered on a daily basis.

In Living the Life Unexpected, Jody Day addresses the experience of involuntary childlessness and provides a powerful, practical guide to help those negotiating a future without children come to terms with their grief; a grief that is only just beginning to be recognised by society.

This friendly, practical, humorous and honest guide from one of the world's most respected names in childless support offers compassion and understanding and shows how it's possible to move towards a creative, happy, meaningful and fulfilling future - even if it's not the one you had planned.

Millions of people are now living a life without children, almost double that of a generation ago and the numbers are rising still. Although some are childfree by choice, many others are childless due to infertility or circumstance and are struggling to come to terms with their uncertain future. Although most people think that those without children either 'couldn't' or 'didn't want' to be parents, the truth is much more complex.

Jody Day was forty-four when she realized that her quest to be a mother was at an end. She presumed that she was through the toughest part, but over the next couple of years she was hit by waves of grief, despair and isolation. Eventually she found her way and in 2011 created Gateway Women, the global friendship and support network for childless women which has now helped almost two million people worldwide.

This edition, previously titled Rocking the Life Unexpected, has been extensively revised and updated, with significant additional content and case studies from forty involuntarily childless people (mostly women) from around the world.
