This book offers mental health guidelines for all medical professionals facing the emerging challenges presented by an aging population worldwide. The text acknowledges that as the geriatric demographic grows, limited resources and infrastructures demand quality protocols to deliver inpatient geriatric psychiatric care, and that many physicians may not be trained to address these specific needs. This text fills this gap with guidelines assessing, diagnosing, and treating aging patients as they present in the emergency room and other settings. Unlike any other text, this book focuses on how to optimize the use of the inpatient setting by recommending evaluations and treatments, and offering flow-charts and figures of key points, to guide both general workup and continued evaluation and treatment. This approach aims to minimize instances of premature release or readmissions and to improve outcomes. Chapters cover the various issues that clinicians face when working with an older patient, including legal topics, limitations to treatment, prescription-related complications, patients struggling with substance abuse, and various behavioral concerns. Written by experts in the field, the text takes a multidisciplinary approach to deliver high-quality care as needs of the aging population evolve. Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry is a vital resource for all clinicians working with an aging population, including geriatricians, psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care providers, hospitalists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, emergency room and geriatric nurses, social workers, and trainees.
Box set featuring all three 'From Dusk Till Dawn' movies. In the first Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney play Richard and Seth Gecko, a pair of brothers on the run together after a prison break. The brothers have kidnapped a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his children and hidden out in an isolated nightclub. However, the club is full of bloodthirsty types, and the captors and convicts soon team up to preserve their skins. In 'From Dusk Till Dawn 2' a gang of murderous bank-robbers head down to Mexico with the plans for the perfect heist. Unfortunately, en route, they stop at the wrong bar, and end up confronted by a host of vampires. As the robbers begin to develop a strong taste for blood, it is up to the last human gang member (Robert Patrick) and a Texan sheriff (Bo Hopkins) to thwart their vampiric desires and escape. Finally, 'From Dusk Till Dawn 3 - The Hangman's Daughter' goes back to the time when the whole saga began. Johnny Madrid, on the run after kidnapping the beautiful Esmeralda, daughter of the man who tried to hang him, takes shelter in an isolated inn. Unfortunately however, the inn is run by vampires and Esmeralda is in fact their long-awaited princess, the legendary half-human, half-vampire Santanico Pandemonium. This means it will probably be a sleepless night for most concerned.

Art is a universal language. This could be the motto of Martial Raysse, the French master of Pop Art and Nouveau Realism for whom the term pop is as apt as it is for Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the US, Sigmar Polke in Germany and David Hockney in Britain. Over 350 works, covering all the fields explored by this visionary artist (painting, sculpture, video, photography and drawing), allow us to follow and appreciate the singular and independent course taken by Raysse, always on the margins of the main artistic trends of the last fifty years.
The Middle English romance has elicited throughout the centuries a curious mixture of indifference, hostile apprehension, and contempt that perhaps no other literature--except its most likely offspring, modern best-sellers--has provoked.
In the course of her artistic career, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) dealt with a variety of different materials and techniques for the purpose of lending direct expression to her emotions. With her tapestries she pursued an act of atonement-in the literal as well as in the metaphorical sense. She sewed scraps of fabric together, engendering new sculptural forms. The practices of weaving, sewing, as well as mending are deeply rooted in Bourgeois's childhood, whose mother ran a workshop for the restoration of old wall hangings. Nowhere else does the artist so intensely deal with the complex relationship between a mother and child as in her tapestries. Besides numerous archive photographs and facsimiles in the possession of the artist's family, the reprint of the coveted Hauser & Wirth gallery edition also includes exclusive excerpts from Bourgeois's psychoanalytical writings.
In this updated second edition, Debating Health Care Ethics explores contemporary moral challenges in health care, providing students with the essential tools to understand and critically evaluate the leading arguments in the field and to develop their own arguments on important moral problems in health care. Written in a clear and concise way, the textbook's first three chapters explore the nature of arguments and ethical theories, while the remaining chapters introduce students to moral problems in health care through case studies and dramas that feature complex scenarios involving patients, family members, and health care providers. Each case study and drama is followed by a lively debate where the authors defend their unique approaches to the dilemma. This new edition now includes more gender inclusive dramas, an expanded discussion of feminist ethics, a case study on euthanasia that highlights changes to Canadian law, and an update on fetal consciousness that informs the debate on abortion. Emphasizing critical issues in health care from a Canadian perspective, this essential textbook will benefit students in philosophy, nursing, and health studies.

This book presents case-based descriptions of models for the inclusive, multispecialty and multidisciplinary clinical care of complex cases. Cases range from primary care patients with complex systemic medical and psychiatric comorbidity, to those requiring specialty care, to those with potentially terminal illnesses. While each category and case has its unique requirements often necessitating different models of care, the commonalities in approaching complex clinical situations is underscored. Extended case narratives written by the treating physicians, summarizing both the course of clinical care and physicians' reflections on the challenges of managing complex patients, comprise the bulk of the book. Five additional chapters on systems issues associated with care of complex patients, together with a chapter on end of life considerations, a narrative analysis of the physicians reflections about complex patients, and a concluding chapter are prominently included to anchor the case narratives. Written by experts in the field, these descriptions form unique models for assessing and treating complex cases. Integrated Care for Complex Patients is a useful guide for all health practitioners and health administrators who are responsible for clinically complex cases, including physicians in primary care and psychiatry, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, and psychologists.
Accrochage brings together about seventy works from the Pinault Collection produced by thirty artists since the 1970s.

Cervantes's Don Quixote, recently chosen the world's best book by well-known authors from fifty-four countries, has from its publication in 1605 been widely translated and imitated. Throughout the world "quixotic" and "tilting at windmills" are commonplaces, and the thin knight-errant and his plump squire Sancho Panza familiar icons. Critics regard Cervantes as the inventor of fiction, author of the first novel. Consistently judged too long and complex to be read in its entirety, Don Quixote, has always inspired abbreviations and adaptations. Major and now forgotten writers were deeply influenced by the Spanish author; in English they wrote chapbooks, satiric verses, essays, plays, and novels. Cervantes's post chivalric romance inspired by the Counter Reformation in Spain became a classic for Protestant England that condemned Catholic medieval romances. Don Quixote, as children's literature, informed by adult renderings, is a major but neglected part of this remarkable tradition. In extravagant Edwardian books, collections, home libraries, and schoolbooks, words and pictures by distinguished artists retold adventures both noble and "mad." Recent adaptations-including comics and graphic novels-express current difference but also support the knight-errant's affinity to children and lasting influence.
Albert Oehlen has established himself as one of the leading figures in contemporary painting thanks to a continually evolving practice that focuses more on overcoming formal limitations and on experimentation than on the subject of the work. Music has played a central part in the artist s output, serving as a metaphor for his method of working in which fusion and rhythm, improvisation and repetition, and density and harmony of sounds are turned into pictorial gestures. This monograph maps out a route through the whole of Albert Oehlen s production, from his best-known works to less familiar ones and from the 1980s to the present day, with reproductions of paintings in the Pinault Collection and other major private collections and international museums
