They were driven by a vision of a society based on welfare and altruism, rather than warfare and competition. Ann Oakley, a leading sociologist, undertook extensive research to uncover this previously hidden cast of forgotten characters. She uses the women¡¦s stories to bring together the histories of social reform, social science, welfare and pacifism. Her fascinating account reveals how their efforts, connected through thriving transnational networks, lie behind many features of modern welfare states and reminds us of their powerful vision of a more humane way of living ¡V a vision that remains relevant today.

Repealing the 8th: Reforming Irish Abortion Law
  Fiona de Londras/ 9781447347514/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
Book Cover Irish law currently permits abortion only where the life of the pregnant woman is at risk. Since 1983, the 8th Amendment to the Constitution has recognised the ¡§unborn¡¨ as having a right to life equal to that of the ¡§mother¡¨. Consequently, most people in Ireland who wish to bring their pregnancies to an end either import the abortion pill illegally, travel abroad to access abortion, or continue with the pregnancy against their will. Now, however, there are signs of change. A constitutional referendum will be held in 2018, after which it will be possible to reimagine, redesign, and reform the law on abortion. Written by experts in the field, this book draws on experience from other countries, as well as experiences of maternal medical care in Ireland, to call for a feminist, woman-centered, and rights-based radical new approach to abortion law in Ireland. Directly challenging grounds-based abortion law, this accessible guide brings together feminist analysis, comparative research, human rights law, and political awareness to propose a new constitutional and legislative settlement on reproductive autonomy in Ireland. It offers practical proposals for policymakers and advocates, including model legislation, making it an essential campaigning tool leading up to the referendum.

SM05-467 Epidemiology in Public Health Practice.
  Haveman-nies, A./ 9789086863051/ Price:EUR 53.00
 
Book Cover Over the past decades, epidemiology has made a relevant contribution to public health by identifying health problems and analysing their determinants. Recent developments call for new and applied methods to support the planning, implementation and evaluation of public health policies and programmes. This book presents an integrated overview of such epidemiological methods, to be used within the joined working process of several public health disciplines. It provides relevant theories, concepts and tools, illustrated with practical examples in order to empower epidemiologists in public health. The first part of this book describes epidemiological history in a nutshell and explains the relationship with the public health domain. It closes with the presentation of a joint work cycle for policy, practice and research: the public health cycle. Part two presents seven steps epidemiologists should follow to strengthen their contribution to the public health cycle: conduct a needs assessment, support priority setting, formulate aims and objectives, construct a logic model, develop an evaluation plan, perform quality control, and analyse processes and outcomes. Part three illustrates the institutional architecture of public health and describes the professional fields of policy and health promotion as knowledge of these major fields facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration in each stage of the public health cycle. This book is intended for students and epidemiologists in public health practice. It was written by 20 Dutch authors with either longstanding experience or fresh enthusiasm. The editors are all affiliated with Academic Collaborative Centres for Public Health in the Netherlands, which aim to bridge the gap between policy, practice and research.
   
SM05-467 Healthcare in Transition: Understanding Key Ideas and Tensions in Contemporary Health Policy.
  Cribb, Alan/ 9781447323228/ Price:¢G 21.99
 
Book Cover Health policy thinking must change. This book explores the fundamental currents and tensions that lie behind recent trends such as shared decision-making, co-production, and personalisation. These are often discussed in relation to an epidemiological transition but this text argues that they embody a philosophical transition ¡V a change in our conceptions of healthcare and of appropriate forms of knowledge and analysis. As clinical concerns are increasingly nested within social concerns then policy analysis must engage with the multiple philosophical tensions that are now centre stage. This focus on key underlying ideas and tensions in healthcare couldn¡¦t have come at a better time. With international relevance, the book¡¦s arguments help fuel a shift away from a ¡¥delivery¡¦ model towards a more deliberative model of healthcare.

  Hunter, David J./ 9781447301318/ Price:¢G 26.99
 
Book Cover The UK government¡¦s reforms of the NHS and public health system require partnerships if they are to succeed.

Partnership working in public health presents the findings from a detailed study of public health partnerships in England. The lessons from the research are used to explore the government¡¦s changes in public health now being implemented, most of which centre on new partnerships called Health and Wellbeing Boards which have been established to work differently from their predecessors. The book assesses their likely impact and the implications for the future of public health partnerships. Drawing on systems thinking, it argues that partnerships can only succeed if they work in quite different ways. The book will therefore appeal to the public health community and students of health policy.

SM05-402 Epidemiology in Public Health Practice.
  Haveman-Nies, A./ 9789086861408/ Price:EUR 53.00
 
Over the past decades, epidemiology has made a relevant contribution to public health by identifying health problems and analysing their determinants. However, recent developments call for new and applied methods to support the planning, implementation and evaluation of public health policies and programmes. This book presents an integrated overview of such epidemiological methods, to be used within the joint working process of several public health disciplines. It provides relevant theories, concepts and tools, illustrated with practical examples in order to empower epidemiologists in public health. The first part of this book describes epidemiological history in a nutshell and explains the relationship with the public health domain. It closes with the presentation of a joint work cycle for policy, practice and research: the public health cycle. Part II presents seven steps for epidemiologists to strengthen their contribution to the public health cycle: conduct a needs assessment, support priority setting, formulate aims and objectives, construct a logic model, develop an evaluation plan, perform quality control and analyse processes and outcomes. Part III is dedicated to successful collaboration of epidemiology with other public health disciplines such as health promotion, policy making and primary health care. This book is meant for students and epidemiologists in public health practice. It was written by 19 Dutch authors with either longstanding experience or fresh enthusiasm. The editors are all active in the recently established Academic Collaborative Centres Public Health in the Netherlands, which aim to bridge the gap between policy, practice and research.
   
SM05-401 Gender, AIDS and Food Security: Culture and Vulnerability in Rural Cote d'Ivoire.
  Maiga, Mariame/ 9789086861590/ Price:EUR 45.00
 
This book is about the effects of AIDS on women and food security in Co^te d'Ivoire, West Africa. AIDS is more than a health problem. Rural households and women in particular have to cope with the lack of labour in agriculture which threatens their food security. For the matrilineal Agni women land ownership appears to be an unexpected burden, rather than a safeguard from poverty. Culture matters, but not in similar ways everywhere. Matrilineal or patrilineal kinship organisation, gender inequality, and norms about sexual relationships very much influence the differences in Agni and migrant women's vulnerability to AIDS. African women are often seen as victims of AIDS. This study shows that women may also use their creativity and social networks to battle and to be resilient against the effects of the illness in their everyday household activities. Using a combination of quantitative statistical data and qualitative methods, this research questions the effectiveness of mainstream AIDS policy and interventions in Co^te d'Ivoire. Victimising the poor does not help. Instead, multi-sector policy intervention can mitigate the social effects of AIDS by improving household food security and by changing cultural practices through local leaders who have historical legitimacy and power.

SM05-397 The Political Economy of Health Care: Where the NHS Came from and Where It Could Lead.
  Hart, Julian T./ 9781847427823/ Price:¢G 19.99
 
Drawing on clinical experience dating from the birth of the NHS in 1948, Julian Tudor Hart, a politically active GP in a Welsh coal mining community, charts the progress of the NHS from its 19th century origins in workers' mutual aid societies, to its current forced return to the market. His starting point is a detailed analysis of how clinical decisions are made. He explores the changing social relationships in the NHS as a gift economy, how these may be affected by reducing care to commodity status, and the new directions they might take if the NHS resumed progress independently from the market.This new edition of this bestselling book has been entirely rewritten with two new chapters, and includes new material on resistance to that world-wide process. The essential principle in the book is that patients need to develop as active citizens and co-producers of health gain in a humanising society and the author's aim is to promote it wherever people recognise that pursuit of profit may be a brake on rational progress.

  Valverde, J. L./ 9781607500551/ Price:EUR 120.00
 
This publication provides an international overview of issues relating to rare plasma related disorders. Unlike many rare diseases, which cannot be diagnosed or appropriately treated, most rare plasma related disorders are treatable, but unacceptable diagnosis rates or misdiagnosis often means that treatment begins too late, or not at all. In addition, information on treatment options, symptoms, diagnosis and access to treatment is not optimal, leading to unnecessary related costs. Rare diseases have been identified as one of the ongoing priorities in the EU Public Health Programme. Cooperation and collaboration among Member States will facilitate the bringing together of scarce and fragmented resources from across the EU and enable patients and professionals to share and coordinate expertise and information. This volume features contributions by leading specialists and key stakeholders. They serve to highlight the priorities pertaining to this community and to identify the solutions and actions necessary to ensure that patients affected by rare plasma related disorders receive appropriate treatment in a timely manner to help them lead normal, happy and productive lives. Some of the conditions discussed include: Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency; C1 inhibitor deficiency; Guillain-Barre' syndrome; Haemophilia; Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura and Primary Immunodeficiencies. The political, regulatory and legislative framework are also explored. The book will provide a valuable resource for anyone seeking a better understanding of the priorities for patients affected by rare plasma related disorders and will contribute to a better awareness of this important public health issue.
   
SM05-380 Public Health Ethics and Practice.
  Peckham, Stephen/ 9781847421029/ Price:¢G 22.99
 
Ethical dilemmas are not new in the area of health care and policy making, but in recent years, their frequency and diversity have grown considerably. All health professionals now have to consider the ethical implications of an increasing array of treatments, interventions and health promotion activities on an almost daily basis. This goes hand in hand with increasing medical knowledge, and the growth of new and innovative medical technologies and pharmaceuticals. In addition, the same technology and knowledge is increasing professional and public awareness of new potential public health threats (e.g. pandemic influenza). At the level of public policy, concerns over the rising costs of health care have led to a more explicit focus on 'health promotion', and the surveillance of both 'patients' and the so-called 'worried well'. Health professionals and policy makers also have to consider the implications of managing these risks, for example restricting individual liberty through enforced quarantine (in the wake of SARS and more recently swine flu) and the more general distribution of harms and benefits. Balancing the rights and responsibilities of individuals and wider populations is becoming more complex and problematic. This book will play a key role in opening out a discussion of public health ethics. It examines the principles and values that support an ethical approach to public health practice and provides examples of some of the complex areas which those practising, analysing and planning the health of populations have to navigate. It will therefore be essential reading for current practitioners, those involved in public health research and a valuable aid for anyone interested in examining the tensions within and the development of public health.

Introduction to Public Health for Chiropractors.
  Haneline, Michael T./ 9780763758226/ Price:US$ 147.95
 
Public health is of concern to practicing chiropractors, as well as chiropractic students. The vast majority of chiropractors utilize public health concepts every day as an integral part of patient care. For instance, they give advice on risk factors that should be avoided and protective factors to be added by their patients to enhance healing and prevent illness. Pubic health is also part of the curriculum at all chiropractic colleges and is tested by the National Board. No public health textbooks are available that are specifically designed for the chiropractor. Consequently, college instructors are forced to make-do with class notes and generic texts that do not address the specific issues relevant to chiropractic. This book will not only be of interest to chiropractic students, but also practicing chiropractors because it will provide information they can utilize to provide better care by positively intervening with their patients and their communities regarding public health matters.

SM05-345 Essentials of Infectious Disease Epidemiology.
  Magnus, Manya/ 9780763734442/ Price:US$ 112.95
 
In recent years, there has been a dramatic and serious increase in infectious diseases. In addition to emerging diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, SARS, Lyme disease, Hantavirus, and Ebola, we have diseases once cured that have become resistant to our treatments, such as tuberculosis and streptococcus. We have increasingly harmful foodborne contagions, such as E. coli, and sexually transmitted diseases, such as Chlamydia, in epidemic proportions worldwide. In the wings, we have diseases such as Avian flu, on the brink of causing a threat to global health even as we seek methods of control and risk reduction. As WHO Director-General Nakajima says of infectious disease, ¡§No country is safe from them.¡¨ As public health education grows, so, too will the need for methodologic skills in infectious disease epidemiology. Without these crucial skills, there will be insufficient resources to improve the health of the public, both domestically and globally. Essentials of Infectious Disease Epidemiology is one of the few texts devoted specifically to the methods required to study infectious disease, making the perfect introduction to the field for undergraduate and introductory masters-level public health students. It will provide students with the requisite skills to conduct, evaluate, and understand the field of infectious disease epidemiology.

SM05-353 Osteoarthritis, Inflammation and Degradation: A Continuum.
  Buckwalter, J./ 9781586037734/ Price:EUR 115.00
 
Osteoarthritis is a major public health issue due to its impact in term of handicap. Moreover, Ageing of the world population and outbreak of obesity in industrialized and non-industrialized countries will dramatically increase its incidence in the next years. Regarded as a multi-factorial disease, today mechanistic and inflammatory theories are no more opposed but, on the contrary, are framed within the same continuum: osteoarthritis, inflammation and degeneration. In order to collect major information in a benchmark book on the fundamental aspects of this disease, internationally well-known authors, from multiple specialties, gathered to analyse, dissect and finally try to understand the secrets of a disease which should no more be regarded as the common and relentless result of ageing or of passive wear but much more as an active disease able to benefit from the best targeted pharmacological (anti-cytokines, inhibitors of signalling pathways, inhibitors of proteases, etc.) and non-pharmacological (cellular therapy, gene therapy, cartilage engineering etc.) therapies, current and future.

VA05-197 Mixed Methods, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bryman, Alan/ 9781412911634/ Price:¢G 645.00
 
Mixed methods research has become one of the major areas of growth in social research methodology in the last 10 years. The divisions between quantitative and qualitative research have increasingly given way to imaginative ways of combining the two approaches and a growing acceptance of adopting a multi-method approach. Much of the literature on mixed-methods research is highly dispersed in a wide variety of journals and other publications. A great deal of it is not well known and quite a lot of it is inaccessible. Alan Bryman, widely recognized as an authority on the subject, brings together the key articles in this important field to form a definitive resource collection. Volume I outlinines the epistemological and ontological issues relating to the debate about quantitative and qualitative research and how these have an impact on the possibility of mixing methods. Volume II is concerned with the combination of different methods within quantitative research and within qualitative research. Volume III addresses the methodological issues involved in combining quantitative and qualitative research - the different ways in which mixed-methods research is actually accomplished. Volume IV continues the kinds of material used in Volume III but will also include some examples of combining quantitative and qualitative research.
   
SM05-326 Public Health in Action: Practicing in the Real world.

From a wealth of experience, the author draws on real examples with a "behind the scenes" look at the strategy and action that must be undertaken to make public health really work.
   
Prison Health: A guide for health care practitioners in prisons.
  Pont, Jorg/ 9781856423137/ Price:¢G 9.99
 
Prisons exist to enforce the requirements of the courts for custodial sentences. In so doing, a balance must be struck between safety and security on the one hand, and respect for human dignity on the other. An important aspect of this is the right to health care and medical services, the principles of which are set out in various United Nations and European covenants, recommendations, and declarations. Health care practitioners working in prisons should be familiar with these statements and this guide discusses them and gives clear references for further reading. Translating these principles into the practice of health care within the prison environment can, however, present complex ethical dilemmas to prison healthcare practitioners when conflicting demands are made upon them. This short guide is an attempt to guide practitioners through some of these situations with clear practical advice based upon medical ethics and international covenants. The prison health care practitioner faces extraordinary challenges peculiar to their work. They encounter a significantly high number of cases of drug abuse, the communicable diseases of AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and tuberculosis, and cases of psychiatric disorders, all of which are adversely affected by the overcrowded conditions in many prisons. This guide contains concise information on the main diseases and disorders affecting the prisoner¡¦s health which the practitioner must be familiar with.

SM05-317 Doctors' Errors and Mistakes of Medicine: Must Health Care Deteriorate?
  Wolman, Moshe/ 9781586034030/ Price:EUR 94.00
 
During the last decades, healthcare in the various industrialized countries has been deteriorating steadily. The enormous progress of medicine in the same period could only partly compensate for the loss. This book describes the deterioration of healthcare that increases continually. It analyses its causes and outlines the measures that might prevent or at least slow the change. The deterioration of healthcare, variable in different fields, progressing at different paces in the various industrialized countries, is produced mainly by two types of causes. Minor ones, resulting from lack of knowledge, or by inadequate equipment or procedures, can be corrected by relatively simple means, such as education and technical or procedural improvements. The major causes for the deterioration involve general policy whose effects are the steady decrease in monitoring health care and the change of healthcare into profit-seeking service. The data collected and its analysis is based on over 300 articles in major medical and nursing journals. It has three parts: part 1 deals with individual doctors' errors, part 2 with errors of the medical establishment, and part 3 is devoted to more theoretical and philosophical discussions concerning medical practice as a clinical science.
   
SM05-317 Global Health Informatics Education.
  Hovenga, E. J. S./ 9781586034542/ Price:EUR 142.00
 
Throughout the world, healthcare professionals often lack knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of systematically processing data, information and knowledge and of the resulting impact on quality decision-making. They are often asked to use information technologies of which they have limited appreciation, in order to enhance their practices through better use of information resources. However, for systematically processing data, information and knowledge in medicine and in healthcare, healthcare professionals who are well-trained in medical informatics or health informatics are needed. It will only be through improved education of healthcare professionals and through an increase in the number of well-trained workers in health and medical informatics that this lack of knowledge and associated skills can begin to be reversed. Although we can recognize further progress in educating health and a considerable number of educational programs for health informatics / medical informatics specialists have been set up, there is still a need to enhance these educational activities world wide, considering global developments as well as new curricular concepts and technological opportunities. IMIA and in particular its working group on health and medical informatics education is the leading international society stimulating such educational activities in various ways. This book will especially be helpful for educators in the field of health / medical informatics.
   
SM05-317 MEDINFO 2004: Proceedings of the 11th World Congress on Medical Informatics, 2-Vols/Set.
  Fieschi, Marius/ 9781586034443/ Price:EUR 319.00
 
A fundamental challenge for medical informatics is to develop and apply better ways of understanding how information technologies and methods can help support the best care for every patient every day given available medical knowledge and resources. In order to provide the most effective healthcare possible, the activities of teams of health professionals have to be coordinated through well-designed processes centered on the needs of patients. For information systems to be accepted and used in such an environment, they must balance standardization based on shared medical knowledge with the flexibility required for customization to the individual patient. Developing innovative approaches to design and build evidence-based careflow management systems is essential for providing the knowledge management infrastructure of health care organizations that seeks to increase performance in delivering high quality care services by efficiently exploiting available resources. Parallel challenges arise in the organization of research at the biological and clinical levels, where the focus on systematically organizing and supporting processes of scientific inquiry by novel informatics methods and databases are in their very early stages. These Proceedings of Medinfo 2004 demonstrate the base of knowledge medical informatics professionals will collectively draw upon in the years ahead to meet these challenges and realize opportunities.

VM01-38 Handbook of Social Studies in Health and Medicine, The.
  Albrecht, Gary L./ 9780761956174/ Price:¢G 120.00
 
This is the first international and inter-disciplinary social science Handbook on health and medicine. Five years in the making, and building on the insights and advice of an international editorial board, the book brings together world-class figures to provide an indispensable, comprehensive resource book on social science, health and medicine. Pinpointing the focal issues of research and debate in one volume, the material is organized into three sections: social and cultural frameworks of analysis; the experience of health and illness; and health care systems and practices. Each section consists of specially commissioned chapters designed to examine the vital conceptual and methodological practice and policy issues. Readers receive not only a complete survey of social science, health and medicine in one volume, they are further provided with an authoritative guide to methodologies, key concepts, central theoretical traditions and an agenda for future research and practice. The Handbook answers the need, expressed by social scientists and medical practitioners, for an authoritative, inter-disciplinary study which demonstrates the contribution and promise of social science disciplines in the crucial and rapidly changing field of health and medicine. The book will also be of interest to nurses, students in physical therapy, occupational therapy, epidemology, primary care and public health. The Handbook signals the coming of age of the social sciences in the arenas of medicine and health studies
