Choice & Coercion

In August 2003, North Carolina became the first U.S. state to offer restitution to victims of state-ordered sterilizations carried out by its eugenics program between 1929 and 1975. The decision was prompted by newspaper stories based on the research of Johanna Schoen, who was granted unique access to summaries of 7,500 case histories and the papers of the North Carolina Eugenics Board. In this book, Schoen situates the state's reproductive politics in a national and global context. Widening her focus to include birth control, sterilization, and abortion policies across the nation, she demonstrates how each method for limiting unwanted pregnancies had the potential both to expand and to limi...

Lower Limb Amputation

Limb loss can occur due to trauma, infection, diabetes, vascular disease, cancer, and other diseases. Regardless of the cause, it often has a profound impact on a person's life. Many amputees experience feelings of loss and grief, frustration in learning to walk with an artificial limb, and difficulty adjusting to a new and challenging lifestyle. This book provides the practical knowledge needed to cope with the many changes caused by lower limb amputation. In clear, accessible language, it covers the medical, physical, and psychosocial issues and answers crucial questions such as: How do I cope emotionally with the loss of a limb? What steps can I take to prevent additional amputations? How do I treat and care for my post-surgery wound? What are the best prostheses for my particular needs? Can I play sports and exercise with a prosthesis? And much more! This unique resource aims to educate those with lower limb amputation so that they can better care for themselves and maximize their independence. The practical advice, tips, and extensive references within its pages will help individuals meet the challenges of leading full and fruitful lives.

Disaster Planning for the Clinical Practice

Most clinical practices are not prepared for a disaster, and failure to prepare for a disaster can have devastating consequences on a medical practice, the physicians, and the patients. Disaster Planning for the Clinical Practice describes the types of disasters that can affect medical practices, suggests steps for disaster planning, and identifies the necessary procedures for restarting the practice after a disaster has occurred. Natural disasters are not the most common casue of practice failure - man-made disasters such as computer crashes, power outages, and loss of electronic data are more likely to impact a medical practice. This book offers suggestions on the preparation of a disaster...

Behavioural Phenotypes in Clinical Practice

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 157 Clinicians, educators and other specialists who work with young people with intellectual disabilities are increasingly aware of the extent to which their clients' behaviours are shaped by the respective causal syndrome. This book is a practical response to the need for interventions and ongoing care programmes to take account of this within the context of coordinated multimodal case planning. An international team of experts drawn from child health, special education, psychology, psychiatry and related disciplines explores general principles of case management, in addition to giving consideration to a large number of individual syndromes, resulting in a comprehensive review of the subject. All of the authors have been involved in original research on the themes explored, and in the development of coherent service responses to the challenges posed by behavioural phenotypes. This will be essential reading for all professionals engaged in the care and management of people with intellectual disabilities.

Acute Leukemias IV

The rates of acute leukemia cure have gradually improved over the last decade. Clinical study results reflect the impact of chemotherapy intensity and duration, the role of prolonged maintenance, intensified consolidation or very early intensification. Further progress has also been achieved in bone marrow trans plantation, and recent prospective studies and meta-analyses have contributed comparisons of the high antileukemic efficacy of bone marrow transplantation to that of improved chemotherapy. This allows a more successful combining of the two forms of treatment. New prognostic factors have emerged from both cytogenetic and molecular genetic research. Thus, the Philadelphia chromosome tr...
