Physical Assessment of the Newborn: A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination
The newly revised, 25th Anniversary Edition of this definitive publication on neonatal care continues to illustrate how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a tremendous range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment. Many problems in the neonate can be noticed early by an astute nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician with honed assessment skills, long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them. Physical Assessment of the Newborn, Sixth Edition addresses the physical, physiologic, neurologic, and behavioral implications of a thorough assessment, and explains how healthcare providers can reduce the risks associated with the transition to extrauterine life and the neonatal period. Grounded with a scientific basis and rationale, each system assessment represents the most up-to-date clinical content. Because assessment skills are such an integral aspect of practice, many individuals take them for granted, yet all health professionals who perform newborn examinations, including nurses, neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physicians, and therapists can benefit from the essential content presented in this book, as well as students preparing for advanced practice roles in neonatal care. New to the Sixth Edition: Provides clinical updates throughout Presents an Enhanced Art Program Offers an all-new chapter on the Opioid-Dependent Neonate Includes an Image Bank and Power Points Key Features: Addresses all key aspects of newborn assessment Provides a well-organized evaluation of individual body systems Assist practitioners in identifying infant state, behavioral clues, and signs of pain Examines the tremendous range of variation among newborns of different gestational ages Provides Antepartum Tests and Intrapartum Monitoring Written in an easy-to-read, user-friendly style Contains tables, figures, and numerous full color photos and illustrations

Ethics in Participatory Research for Health and Social Well-Being: Cases and Commentaries
Participatory research is well-established as an approach involving people with a direct interest in, or experience of, the issue being studied in carrying out research. However, it raises unique and challenging ethical issues. Traditional concerns with respect for the rights to confidentiality, consent, privacy and protection of `research informants' do not translate easily into participatory research. Boundaries between researchers and those researched are often blurred; research trajectories may be emergent and unpredictable; and major ethical issues revolve around partnership, power, equality and respect for diverse knowledges. The book introduces the key ethical issues in participatory research, drawing on ethical theory and relevant literature before presenting seven substantive chapters, each on a different theme, such as power, ownership, confidentiality and boundaries. The chapters feature an introductory overview of the topic with reference to the literature, followed by four real-life case examples written by participatory researchers and short commentaries on each case. Drawn from around the world (from Denmark to Tanzania), the cases illustrate a range of ethical issues, outlining how they were handled and the reflections and feelings of the contributors. Focusing on developing ethical awareness, confidence and courage to act in ethically challenging situations in everyday research practice, this book is an invaluable resource for all participatory researchers.

The History of Nursing and Nurses of Long Ago
Medicine in ancient times was associated with magic and the supernatural, but it was within monastic hospitals that nursing as we know it today really began. With the Reformation, nursing became increasingly secularised, and was generally considered a low-status job until high standards of professional nursing were established by Florence Nightingale. Nursing continued to advance with the work of many other nursing pioneers and reformers, and their stories will continue to inspire the nurses of today and of the future.
