Dr Joan Louwrens was always drawn to wild places, which were balm to her soul. When her husband died, leaving her alone with two small daughters to raise, she threw herself wholeheartedly into ‘adventure medicine’, seeking out the world’s most remote corners – on land and at sea – to practise her healing, both her own and others.

Working in wild places from the Kruger Park to the Australian Outback, the Atlantic Ocean islands, and both the south and north poles, ‘Doctor Joan’ dealt with a vast range of medical issues, from rabies to deep-vein thrombosis, childbirth to wisdom-tooth extraction, catatonia to depression.

Showing an eagerness to learn and a humility that isn’t always a given in her profession, and with a wry eye and a sympathetic outlook, Joan Louwrens has written a memoir that’s a poignant and often funny story of a life lived to the full

Bo Kyeong Seo
R1,647 Discovery Miles 16 470 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In 2001, Thailand introduced universal health care reforms that have become some of the most celebrated in the world, providing almost its entire population with health protection coverage. However, this remarkable implementation of health policy is not without its weaknesses. Drawing on two years of fieldwork at a district hospital in northern Thailand, Bo Kyeong Seo examines how people in marginal and dependent social positions negotiate the process of obtaining care. Using the broader concept of elicitation, Seo analyzes the social encounters and forces that shape caregivers. These dynamics challenge dichotomies of subjugation and resistance, consent and coercion, and dependence and autonomy. The intimate and moving stories at the core of Eliciting Care from patients and providers draw attention to a broader, critically important phenomenon at the hospital level. Seo's poignant ethnography engages with feminist theory on the ethics of care, and in so doing, makes a significant contribution to emerging work in the field of health policy and politics.

Siekte is ’n natuurlike verskynsel sonder betekenis – potensieel ernstig, ja, maar bloot deel van menswees. Teen hierdie agtergrond ondersoek Hoop, heling & harmonie hoe siekte en behandeling ons liggame, gees en menswees aantas. Die doel van geneeskunde is om ons lewens positief te beďnvloed – in die woorde van Hippokrates, om soms te genees, dikwels te behandel, altyd te troos – maar die positiewe is nie noodwendig onvoorwaardelik nie: ons kan té wetenskaplik wees, die persoon agter die siekte miskyk.

’n Terugblik na die verlede plaas die huidige in perspektief; die boek analiseer onder andere die taal van siekte en geneeskunde, die rol van emosies, ideologie en politiek in siekte, hoe ons teen die risiko’s van behandeling en navorsing beskerm word, einde-van-dielewe- besluite ... en bereik dan die hoogtepunt: Hoop, Heling en Harmonie. Sonder hoop is die toekoms duister, sonder heling is daar geen genesing nie, en sonder harmonie in die uiteenlopende aandrange van siekte kan daar geen vrede in die gemoed wees nie. Hierdie onderwerpe word dikwels in die media bespreek.

Covid-19 is vir almal ’n skrikwekkende nuwe ervaring wat beklemtoon hoe broos die mensdom is. Hoop, heling & harmonie is ’n tydige publikasie wat die besondere eise van die tyd vernuwend aanspreek. Die boek is uniek en sistematies, die teks en styl is toeganklik met heelwat toeligting; nogtans word die leser uitgedaag om opnuut oor siekte-ervaring na te dink.

The world's leading expert on near-death experiences reveals his journey toward rethinking the nature of death, life, and the continuity of consciousness. What happens when we die? 10% of people whose hearts stop report near-death experiences (NDEs). Stories of lights, tunnels and loved ones have been relayed - and dismissed - since ancient times. But when Dr Bruce Greyson's patients started describing events that he could not just dismiss, he began to investigate. As a physician without a religious belief system, he approached NDEs from a scientific perspective. In After, he shares the transformative lessons he has learned over four decades of research. Our culture has tended to view dying as the end of our consciousness, the end of our existence - a dreaded prospect that for many people evokes fear and anxiety. But Dr Greyson shows how scientific revelations about the dying process can support an alternative theory. Dying could be the threshold between one form of consciousness and another, not an ending but a transition. This new perspective on the nature of death can transform the fear of dying that pervades our culture into a healthy view of it as one more milestone in the course of our lives. After challenges us to reconsider these experiences and what they can teach us about the relationship between our brain and our mind, expanding our understanding of consciousness, and of what it means to be human.
