Textbook of Community Psychiatry

G. J. Thornicroft, George Szmukler

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 600

In recent years the practice of psychiatry has changed fundamentally. Mentally ill people have been moved out of the large institutions, with their clear structures and hierarchies, and into the community. This shift has required the development of new service structures, new facilities, new attitudes and new professional relationships. This book provides the first authoritative, international review of community psychiatry, taking into consideration theoretical as well as clinical issues. The key aim of the book is to review the status of community psychiatry throughout the developed world, presenting a comprehensive and critical exposition of the achievements, limitations and dilemmas in the theoretical base and the practical implementation of a community-based strategy. The book covers the available evidence base, gaps in that evidence base and describes, where possible, best practice for treatment and care. Current areas of theoretical and professional conflict are also covered. There are two main sections of the book; the first describes psychiatry for the community, in which the population needs for psychiatric care are considered. The second major section examines psychiatry in the community, describing how the service systems are designed to meet these needs. The final section of the book examines ethical issues and dilemmas. With 46 chapters from the leading international experts in the field, this book will be essential reading for all those working with the mentally ill in the 21st century.

Differential Diagnosis in Neuro-oncology

J. Jerzy Hildebrand, Michael Brada

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 310

Most neurological lesions in cancer patients are progressive, have a profound influence on the quality of life and can be fatal. Management of the situation requires rapid identification of the nature and location of the problem as the treatment outcome depends as much on the speed of diagnosis as on the subsequent therapy. While modern neuroimages provides invaluable clues to the diagnosis, they need to be interpreted in the light of clinical data. The clinical examination remains the cornerstone of the differential diagnosis of neurological lesions affecting the cancer patient. Neurological disorders are a consequence not only of primary tumours of the central and peripheral nervous system but also of systemic malignancy. One in five patients with disseminated malignancy develop neurological complications other than neurogenic pain. The majority of neurological problems are a direct consequence of metastatic disease or the result of metabolic disorders. However, some disorders are due to anti-neoplastic treatments or the administration of drugs. The incidence of CNS infections and vascular lesions is also increased in malignant disease, and a small proportion of neurological disorders are paraneoplastic, resulting from a remote effect of cancer on the nervous system. This book, written by a neurologist and an oncologist, aims to help the clinician to identify and locate the underlying neurological lesion in a cancer patient, and to make a quick therapeutic decision. Diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms are included with an emphasis on the more common and potentially treatable conditions. It should be read by neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation therapists, neurosurgeons and all those involved in the management of cancer patients.

Magnetism in Condensed Matter

Blundell Stephen

editore: Oxford University Press

An understanding of the quantum mechanical nature of magnetism has led to the development of new magnetic materials which are used as permanent magnets, sensors, and information storage. Behind these practical applications lie a range of fundamental ideas, including symmetry breaking, order parameters, excitations, frustration, and reduced dimensionality. This superb new textbook presents a logical account of these ideas, staring from basic concepts in electromagnetsim and quantum mechanics. It outlines the origin of magnetic moments in atoms and how these moments can be affected by their local environment inside a crystal. The different types of interactions which can be present between magnetic moments are described. The final chapters of the book are devoted to the magnetic properties of metals, and to the complex behaviour which can occur when competing magnetic interactions are present and/or the system has a reduced dimensionality. Throughout the text, the theorectical principles are applied to real systems. There is substantial discussion of experimental techniques and current reserach topics. The book is copiously illustrated and contains detailed appendices which cover the fundamental principles.

Monoclonal Antibodies

A Practical Approach

Christopher Dean, Phil S. Shepherd

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 510

Monoclonal Antibodies: A Practical Approach covers the preparation, testing, derivation, and applications of monoclonal antibodies. New immunological techniques incorporating tried and tested methodologies are described, making the book of interest to established and inexperienced immunologists. Both the standard somatic hybridization technique and recombinant techniques, including the use of phage libraries, for the preparation of rodent and human monoclonal antibodies are described. Protocols for both the small and large scale production are detailed, as well as purification and labelling (with both radioisotopes and non-radioisotopes) methods. The applications of monoclonal antibodies in immunoblotting, enzyme linked immunoassays, immunofluorescence, and FACS analysis are all covered in detail. Finally protocols are given for the use of monoclonal antibodies in rheumatoid arthritis, tissue typing, detecting DNA modified during chemotherapy, and in the clinical analysis of transplantation samples for malignancy. This book will therefore be an invaluable laboratory companion to anyone using monoclonal antibodies in their research.

Clinical Judgement

Evidence in Practice

Jane Macnaughton, Robin Downie

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 212

There is a widespread view that modern medicine is primarily a scientific enterprise and that the decisions of clinicians follow from evidence-based science. In terms of this view the need for clinical judgement is minimal. The aims of this book are to make a case for the centrality and irreplaceability of clinical judgement, to identify the elements of good clinical judgement, and to suggest how these might be developed by using the humanities in medical undergraduate and postgraduate education. The authors argue that good clinical judgement requires both technical evidence and a humane attitude. But technical evidence is not always quantifiable or even scientific; it can be like that of the detective or the literary scholar. A humane attitude involves ethical sensitivity, but also a broad educated perspective which can be derived from the arts. The authors illustrate their argument by examining decisions made by doctors in clinical situations, in public health, and (in a chapter contributed by a hospital consultant) in resource management. About the authors: Robert S. Downie is Professor of Moral Philosophy at Glasgow University since 1969. He is a member of the BMA Ethics Committee and co-editor of the Journal of Medical Ethics. He has published extensively in the field of medical ethics. Jane MacNaughton has recently taken the position of Director of Centre for Arts, Humanities, Health and Medicine at the University of Durham. Previously she was Clinical Lecturer in General Practice at Glasgow University and a part-time GP.

Curran's Atlas of Histopathology

John Crocker, R. C. Curran

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 288

For this fourth edition of Professor Curran's colour atlas of histopathology, the text has been completely revised and there have been additional immunohistological images added to the 804 colour illustrations. The general arrangement of the contents has been retained, with a chapter on each of the main systems or organs of the body. There is an introductory chapter of a general nature which demonstrates the more important reactions of the tissues in disease and at the same time teaches the student the basic language of histopathology, thereby enabling him or her to read and assess the significance of changes in the tissue as revealed by microscopy. Most of the conditions are common or fairly common diseases, but occasional rare lesions are included. The book is primarily an atlas, the primary purpose of which is to convey information in visual form. It is meant to complement existing textbooks. A new comprehensive index has been prepared for this edition. This book is intended for primarily intended for undergraduate medical students but as with its predecessors, likely to prove useful to postgraduate students in training in pathology or other clinical disciplines.

Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology

Alex M. Davison, Christopher Q. Winearls
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 3166

The first edition of the "Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology" established itself as a clinical reference text for practising nephrologists worldwide. The second edition comes five years later, during which time there have been significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of renal disease and advances in therapy. The text argues that placing existing treatment on a firm scientific basis or stopping ineffective or dangerous treatment is as important as introducing proven new therapies, and all the contributors have taken this fully into account.

Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Health Care Programmes

Bernie J. O'Brien, George Torrance
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 316

Since its publication in 1987, Methods for the economic evaluation of health care programmes has become the standard textbook in this field world-wide Over the past ten years, the field of economic evaluation in health care has expanded considerably, with a rapid rise in the number of published studies, and wider recognition of their use in health care decision-making. Developments in economic evaluation have also led to the publication of several guidelines for study methodology, most recently those proposed by the United States Public Health Services Panel. The new edition of Methods for the economic evaluation of health care programmes follows the same basic structure as the first edition. The key methodological principles are outlined using a critical appraisal checklist that can be applied to any published study. The methodological features of the basic forms of analysis (cost analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-utility analysis, and cost-benefit analysis) are then explained in more detail. The book has been greatly revised and enlarged, especially with respect to cost-utility and cost- benefit analysis, where major methodological developments have taken place. New to this edition are chapters on collecting and analysing data, and presenting and using economic evaluation results. The new edition will be required reading for anyone commissioning, undertaking, or using economic evaluations in health care, and will be popular with health service professionals, health economists, and health-care decision makers.

Primary Surgery

James Cairns, Jim Thornton
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 656

The four Primary Surgery volumes are manuals written for the non-specialist doctor and medical students. Two other volumes Trauma and Primary Anaesthesia have already been published and a fourth, Primary Mother Care is in preparation. The manuals describe what a doctor can do if s/he cannot refer a patient, both in emergency and for 'cold surgery'. Surgery has become fragmented into many specialties, and these manuals select methods of which the generalist can make good use. Although common problems such as Caesarean section, the resection of dead gut, and the release of pus from infected bones are highlighted, it is recognized that rare problems are fairly common, and thus the manuals aim to be comprehensive. The organization and equipment found within an operating theatre is described, and an extensive equipment list is provided. The previous volumes have been well-received, as a reader from Africa testifies: "With the volume on Trauma (which never leaves the theatre) open, my colleagues and I have done several operations successfully, which we previously knew nothing about. I was especially impressed with the descriptions of how to make burr holes for intracranial bleeding. Following the instructions, a patient who had been unconscious for 10 days woke up after the evacuation of bilateral subdural haematosas."
