It's Only Blood: Shattering the Taboo of Menstruation
For women and girls around the world, menstruation has become a mark of shame. They are told that it is not to be discussed in public, that their tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In parts of the developing world, the taboo around menstruation has had grave consequences, with girls deterred from going to school, women from work, and with infections often left untreated. In such societies, poverty, culture and religion all collide to create a stifling atmosphere of stigma and silence. In It's Only Blood, journalist Anna Dahlqvist offers a global perspective on our attitudes to menstruation, as told through the experiences of women in countries ranging from Sweden and the United States to Uganda, India and Bangladesh. Dahlqvist reveals how women around the world are being denied their basic human rights, through the denial of access to menstrual hygiene products, adequate toilets, and education about their bodies. Through conversations with activists and experts, Dahlqvist also shows how women are starting to fight back against the climate of shame, and how what was once unspeakable has become a key struggle in the global movement for women's rights.

CMSA's Integrated Case Management: A Manual For Case Managers by Case Managers
Written by case managers for case managers, this reference manual for nurses and other health professionals presents a CMSA tested approach towards systematically integrating physical and mental health case management principles and assessment tools. Since the health care field has undergone major changes such as the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Mental Health Parity, Transition of Care & Chronic Care Management and the Medicare Act and CHIP Authorization Act (MACRA), health care workers must competently know how to integrate those new regulations, describe alternative payment options, and implement requirements for greater patient and family assessment, care planning, and care coordination in their practice.CMSA's Integrated Case Management delves into the role of the case manager and unpacks how case managers assess and treat complex patients. These are patients who may be challenged with medical and behavioral conditions, poor access to care services, as well as chronic illnesses and disabilities, and require multidisciplinary care to regain health and function. With a wealth of information on regulatory requirements, new models of care, integration of services, digital and telemedicine, and new performance measures that are clearly defined for nurses in nursing terminology, chapters outline the steps needed to begin, implement, and use the interventions of the Integrated Case Management approach. All content aligns with the newly revised 2017 Model Care Act, CMSA Standards of Practice 2016 as well as the CMSA Core Curriculum for Case Management Third Edition.

In Shock: From Doctor to Patient - What I Learned About Medicine's Inhumanity
At seven months pregnant, intensive care doctor Rana Awdish suffered a catastrophic medical event, haemorrhaging nearly all of her blood volume and losing her unborn first child. She spent months fighting for her life in her own hospital, enduring multiple major surgeries and a series of organ failures. Every step of the way, Awdish was faced with something even more unexpected and shocking than her battle to survive: her fellow doctors' inability to see and acknowledge the pain of loss and human suffering, the result of a self-protective barrier hard-wired in medical training. In Shock is Rana Awdish's searing account of her extraordinary journey from doctor to patient. From a unique perspective, she sees for the first time the dysfunction of her profession's disconnection from patients and the flaws in her own past practice as a doctor. Shatteringly personal yet wholly universal, it is both a brave roadmap for anyone navigating illness and a call to arms for doctors to see each patient not as a diagnosis but as a human being.

Florence Nightingale, Nursing, and Health Care Today
Contributes new insights to Nightingale's relevance for nursing today.This in-depth analysis of Nightingale's legacy goes beyond established scholarship to examine her lesser known-and arguably even more important-writings beyond Notes on Nursing. The book demonstrates afresh her unparalleled and ongoing influence on professional nursing, on the core concepts of health, disease, and access to care as we understand them today. It introduces readers to the real Florence Nightingale - who pioneered evidence-based health care, campaigned for hospital safety, promoted economic opportunities for women, and mentored two generations of nursing leaders.The first part of the book focuses on Nightingale's core nursing concepts: gender and women's issues, education, health promotion, infection control, professional ethics, pediatrics, and palliative care, and how they have transcended time to influence professional nursing today. The author draws on comments from current nursing and medical literature to demonstrate the ongoing relevance of Nightingale's work. In the second part of the book, the author presents key writings by Nightingale, including the little-known background work that shaped her iconic Notes on Nursing. It goes on to cover key later writings, which show how her ideas evolved with advances in medical science and nursing practice.Key Features:Expands on established scholarship to reveal Nightingale's contributions to theory, science, and policy in greater breadth and depthDemonstrates the remarkable relevance of her work to nursing issues todayNightingale's core nursing concepts of health promotion, disease prevention, and access to careDisseminates Nightingale writing especially relevant to nursing leaders and policy advocates.
