R1,117 Discovery Miles 11 170 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

This book prepares and guides individuals who are about to embark (or already have embarked) on a health/medical PhD journey, with a specific focus on Public Health. Based on the author's experience as a recently graduated Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) student, readers benefit from the knowledge imparted and lessons learned, including an analysis of the different aspects of a Public Health doctoral degree, and practical tips and guidance on how to go about this journey from the initial phase of choosing a research niche up until the oral examination (also called defence). All throughout the book, the author shares examples from her own journey to show that in spite of sacrifices and hurdles along the way, hard work, perseverance, and supportive resources can help see you through, eventually, to a hopefully positive outcome at the end. Using an informal style, the author provides a step-wise guide, from chapter to chapter, on the various essential aspects that need to be considered, including: The initial steps towards a PhD Proposal, permissions and funding The fieldwork The art of data analysis The hurdles along the way - a personal experience What comes after the completion of a PhD? Intended to be a compact go-to guide for students throughout their PhD journey, both from an academic and personal perspective, To Do or Not to Do a PhD? engages readers who are about to enroll in or who already have started a PhD, especially in public health, epidemiology, and health/medical fields of study. The brief also would appeal to postgraduate and undergraduate students who are interested in learning about how to write a research proposal, draft a scientific paper for publication in a journal, or prepare a thesis.

R2,246 Discovery Miles 22 460 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The central theme of the study is Christ as the sacrament of reconciliation of the human being with God. In light of this premise, the study is divided into two main parts. The first part concentrates on the human response to grace, thus personal justification. In this section different but related topics are studied: the human act and its limitations; the nature of sin in antithesis to the virtue of justice implanted in the human heart. The second part of the study takes care of the sacrament of reconciliation as understood in Catholic dogma. An historical survey of the sacrament brings into focus the teaching of the Fathers of the Church which was implemented by ecumenical and particular councils and codifications. The same historical survey prepares the reader for a better understanding of the canons on Penance. The canons of the Latin and of the astern Rite codes are presented with an explanation when necessary. Through the study of these canons it becomes clear that concern of the Church is to protect the sacredness and the dignity of the sacrament as well as the dignity of the penitent.

The second volume of Operative Manual of Endoscopic Surgery covers some of the operative endoscopic procedures which have been introduced into clinical practice since the publication of VoI. 1. In the general section, we have included an updated chapter on instrumentation and new chapters on anaesthetic manage ment of patients undergoing endoscopic surgery and on video image and record ing. Both topics are of importance to the practice of endoscopic surgery and have not been adequately covered in the reported literature. Volume 2 deals with endoscopic procedures)nthechest and abdomen. There have been significant advances in thoracoscopic surgery duririg the past 2 years; particular reference rs made to anatomical pulmonary resections and oesophageal resections. As far as the gastrointestinal trad is concerned, we have included gastric and allied operations but have not covered the colorectal region as we believe that more evaluation is needed before definitive accounts can be written on endoscopic colorectal resections, especially for cancer. For this reason, we have decided to defer this important topic to VoI. 3, which is in preparation. The same applies to laparoscopic repair of abdominal hernias. The same layout has been adopted as in VoI. 1 of the series, with heavy em phasis on illustrative representation of the operative steps and techniques. In the diagrams on sites of trocar/cannulae, we have indicated not only the site and size but also the functional role of each port.

During the past 9 years, reports of 'port-site' deposits following laparoscopic surgery for malignancy, especially laparoscopic resection of colonic cancer, have cast a shadow on the wisdom of the laparoscopic approach in the surgical man agement in patients with cancer. Those reports of port-site deposits, some 90 cases reported in the literature up to 1999, have opened a 'can of worms' and highlighted the scarcity of our knowledge on cancer cell migration from solid tu mors and the factors that underlie their successful implantation in surgical wounds both in the presence and absence of a positive pressure pneumoperito neum. The jury is out even in relation to the effect of the healing surgical access wound - do the biochemical and cellular repair processes and the associated growth factors enhance or prevent implantation of exfoliated viable tumor cells? Whatever the answer to this question, it is clear that tumor cells do implant in healing surgical wounds and the key question is whether this is facilitated by lap aroscopic surgery with CO pneumoperitoneum compared to the traditional 2 surgical exposure. It is known that tumors shed malignant cells into the blood stream, the peritoneal cavity and in the case of hollow organs, intraluminally. Equally there is good evidence that surgical and instrumental manipulation of tumors induce exfoliation of viable tumor cells.

In putting together this manual of endoscopic surgery, we have sought to cover the three essential components of the new surgical approach: the technological aspects, the basic endoscopic surgical skills, and the operative techniques. Visualization of the operative field, exposure and execution of remote manipulations are dependent on op timal function of the ancillary apparatus without which endoscopic surgery cannot be practised. Familiarity of the surgeon with the basic physical principles of the various de vices employed in this technology-dependent form of surgery ensures safe use, pro longed equipment life and smooth execution of surgical endoscopic interventions. Equally important is the acquisition of the basic skills of endoscopic surgical practice, since these differ in several important respects from those of conventional open surgery. Mastery of the craft of endoscopic surgery requires a determined commitment to training and is no easy option, but once acquired is rewarded by the extreme profes sional satisfaction experienced when one witnesses the remarkable progress of patients who have undergone major surgical interventions, with minimal discomfort and pain, lower morbidity and rapid return to gainful employment. The new approach has taken the "sting" out of surgical treatment and made it more acceptable to our patients. Quite apart from cost considerations, this aspect alone justifies the extra effort and invest ment needed for the further advancement of endoscopic surgery. Our task in compiling this operative manual was thus an ambitious one.

Essential Surgical Practice: Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery is an indispensable source of reference for the surgical trainee. This fifth volume is fully updated and caters for the needs of the senior trainee surgeon undertaking higher surgical training in general surgery, providing detailed information on those specialties which the general surgeon is required to have a working knowledge of, with a special emphasis on trauma and vascular surgery. Significant changes in surgical training have occurred over the past decade and Essential Surgical Practice reflects this by dividing the chapters into three distinct parts: general patient care; trauma; general surgical care. The text is structured to be highly patient-oriented in line with current thought and practice, with a firm underpinning of pathophysiology. Essential Surgical Practice: Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery will be an indispensable source of reference for all surgical trainees and can be used with confidence in association with local studies and distance learning courses. The content is consistent with the scope and level of information required for international postgraduate examinations.
