Based on these elements, the 12th edition was awarded first prize in the 2012 British Medical Association Book Awards in the Internal Medicine category. Sherlock's Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System begins by introducing the anatomy and function of the liver to readers, continuing then with in-depth coverage of liver biopsy techniques and interpretation, and fibrogenesis and its assessment. There are then chapters on all aspects of liver and biliary disease including acute liver failure, cirrhosis, portal hypertension, hepatic encephalopathy, ascites, hepatitis B and C, alcohol and the liver, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, drug related liver reactions, cholestatic, autoimmune and genetic liver diseases, benign and malignant tumours and not least liver transplantation. There are also chapters on the liver in pregnancy, in the neonate, infancy and childhood, in systemic diseases and in infections. This new edition also features four new individual chapters focusing on coagulation, non-invasive assessment of fibrosis and cirrhosis; vascular diseases of the liver and portal vein thrombosis, and nutrition in liver disease.

Ntoumanis and Myers have done sport and exercise science researchers and students a tremendous service in producing An Introduction to Intermediate and Advanced Statistical Analyses for Sport and Exercise Scientists. This book has an outstanding compilation of comprehensible chapters dealing with the important concepts and technical minutia of the statistical analyses that sport and exercise science scholars use (or should be using!) in their efforts to conduct meaningful research in the field. It is a resource that all sport and exercise scientists and their students should have on their book shelves. Robert Eklund, School of Sport, University of Stirling, UK Motivating, to have a statistics text devoted to enabling researchers studying sport and exercise science to apply the most sophisticated analytical techniques to their data. Authors hit the mark between using technical language as necessary and user-friendly terms or translations to keep users encouraged. Text covers traditional and well-used tools but also less common and more complex tools, but always with familiar examples to make their explanations come alive. As a dynamic systems theorist and developmentalist, I would love to see more researchers in my area create study designs that would enable the use of tools outlined here, such as multilevel structural equation modeling (MSEM) or mediation & moderation analyses, to uncover cascades of relations among subsystems contributing to motor performance, over time. This text can facilitate that outcome. Beverly D. Ulrich, School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan, USA The domain of quantitative methods is constantly evolving and expanding. This means that there is tremendous pressure on researchers to stay current, both in terms of best practices and improvements in more traditional methods as well as increasingly complex new methods. With this volume Ntoumanis and Myers present a nice cross-section of both, helping sport and exercise science researchers to address old questions in better ways, and, even more excitingly, to address new questions entirely. I have no doubt that this volume will quickly become a lovingly dog-eared companion for students and researchers, helping them to continue to move the field forward. Gregory R.

R650 R610 Discovery Miles 6 100 Save R40 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This short textbook of ethics and law is aimed at doctors in training and in practice. Medical ethics and law are now firmly embedded in the curricula of medical schools. The ability to make clinical decisions on the basis of critical reasoning is a skill that is rightly presumed as necessary in today's doctors. Medical decisions involve not only scientific understanding but also ethical values and legal analysis. The belief that it is ethically right to act in one way rather than another should be based on good reasons: it is not enough to follow what doctors have always done, nor what experienced doctors now do. The third edition has been revised and updated to reflect changes in the core curriculum for students, developments in the law as well as advances in medicine and technology. It includes a new 'extensions' section, providing an outline of important developing areas in medical ethics. The first part of the book covers general topics in ethics and law in the context of medicine. The second part covers specific core topics that are essential for health professionals to understand. The third section of the book includes new chapters on cutting edge topics that will be crucial for the doctors and health professionals of tomorrow: Neuroethics, Genethics, Information ethics and Public Health ethics. The re-named first part on Foundations will be updated with a more concise, up-to-date list of further reading for students who wish to extend their learning in medical ethics and law. The re-named second part on Core topics will include chapters that relate to sections in the Institute of Medical Ethics curriculum. Each chapter will be introduced with a new short case example to identify the key ethical questions; the majority of these will be based upon real legal cases. Two additional chapters address topics that were not included in the IME curriculum, but are without doubt core topics for medical ethics teaching. The new third part on Extensions contains short chapters which will build on the core material to identify and analyse novel and emerging issues of broad interest and relevance to future doctors.

From insulin comas and lobotomy to incarceration and exile, those who suffer bipolar disorder endured dangerous, ineffective treatments for centuries until a momentous breakthrough in the 1950s offered salvation. Lithium's astonishing efficacy at both ending and preventing manic depressive episodes was discovered by Dr John Cade, whose years running a psychiatric ward as a World War II prisoner of war sparked a hunch that put him on the path to revelation. The miraculous metal has since salvaged an untold number of lives, but even after its healing power was discovered, it would be decades before the medical community-not to mention the general public-could be convinced that lithium, no longer stigmatized, was not only safe, but utterly lifesaving. Walter A. Brown, a renowned psychiatrist and academic, has crafted a compelling work of medical history, revealing just how close we came to missing out on this extraordinary drug, and showcasing the limitless possibilities of scientific curiosity.

From time to time in the field of healthcare, an exciting new development emerges to challenge and potentially transform thinking and behaviour. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and its framework is undoubtedly one of these transformative resources and is increasingly widely used in the field of childhood disability. This accessible handbook introduces the ICF to professionals working with children with disabilities and their families. It contains an overview of the elements of the ICF but focusses on practical applications, including how the ICF framework can be used with children, families and carers to formulate health and management goals. The Appendices contain case studies for individuals and interdisciplinary teams to work through and discuss, alongside other resources, and a copy of an ICF code set for children and youth is available to download online. Importantly, the book includes a chapter written by a parent of a child with impairments, illustrating the potential diverse applications of the ICF framework. The ICF's relationship with patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and future alternatives to the current ICF framework are also examined. Clinicians, paediatricians and other healthcare providers in neurodisability, community-based health professionals, policy makers and the families and carers of children with disabilities will find this title an indispensable resource.
