List price: $43.99
Author: Peter S. Uzelac
Brand: Brand: Lippincott Williams Wilkins

SOAP for Obstetrics and Gynecology features over 60 clinical problems with each case presented in an easy-to-read 2-page layout. Each step presents information on how that case would likely be handled. Questions under each category teach the students important steps in clinical care.

The SOAP series is a unique resource that also provides a step-by-step guide to learning how to properly document patient care. Covering the problems most commonly encountered on the wards, the text uses the familiar "SOAP" note format to record important clinical information and guide patient care. SOAP format puts the emphasis back on the patient's clinical problem, not the diagnosis.

This series is a practical learning tool for proper clinical care, improving communication between physicians, and accurate documentation. The books not only teach students what to do, but also help them understand why. Students will find these books a "must-have" to keep in their white coat pockets for wards and clinics.

The Medicalization of Society: On the Transformation of Human Conditions into Treatable Disorders

The Medicalization of Society: On the Transformation of Human Conditions into Treatable Disorders Lowest new price: $8.30
Lowest used price: $7.02
List price: $27.00
Author: Peter Conrad
Brand: imusti

Over the past half-century, the social terrain of health and illness has been transformed. What were once considered normal human events and common human problems―birth, aging, menopause, alcoholism, and obesity―are now viewed as medical conditions. For better or worse, medicine increasingly permeates aspects of daily life.

Building on more than three decades of research, Peter Conrad explores the changing forces behind this trend with case studies of short stature, social anxiety, "male menopause," erectile dysfunction, adult ADHD, and sexual orientation. He examines the emergence of and changes in medicalization, the consequences of the expanding medical domain, and the implications for health and society. He finds in recent developments―such as the growing number of possible diagnoses and biomedical enhancements―the future direction of medicalization.

Conrad contends that the impact of medical professionals on medicalization has diminished. Instead, the pharmaceutical and biotechnical industries, insurance companies and HMOs, and the patient as consumer have become the major forces promoting medicalization. This thought-provoking study offers valuable insight into not only how medicalization got to this point but also how it may continue to evolve.

Little Sugar Addicts: End the Mood Swings, Meltdowns, Tantrums, and Low Self-Esteem in Your Child Today

Author: Kathleen DesMaisons

Sugar Is Not Love

Do you have a smart, creative, loving child who is also cranky, inattentive, and sometimes downright obnoxious? If you’ve written off this negative behavior as “typical” for your child’s age—whether toddler or teen—stop and think: Does your child have a taste for soda, sugary breakfast cereals, and treats like candy and cookies? Does she eat regularly scheduled meals or skip them? What, exactly, does he drink and snack on throughout the day?

Your child’s behavior may be linked to diet—specifically to the sugar in obvious sources like sweets and soda and to hidden sugars that lurk in many foods, fruit-based drinks, and “healthy” snacks like granola bars. And if your son or daughter is sugar sensitive, misbehavior and moodiness can be aggravated by missed or late meals and junk foods.

Now, bestselling author Kathleen DesMaisons offers you a workable solution for getting back your child by changing his diet—without creating a sense of deprivation, without setting unrealistic goals, and without turning sugar into “forbidden fruit.” This book offers:

• A step-by-step program, backed by years of research, for gradually improving the food your child eats—you and your whole family will benefit!
• Tips for navigating the sugar-laden world of birthday parties, holidays, and school cafeterias
• Ways to incorporate healthy snacking and regular mealtimes into your child’s day, including suggestions for meals and snacks, plus recipes

Little Sugar Addicts isn’t about strange foods, dramatic lifestyle changes, or complicated menus—just support, guidance, and real-life suggestions from other parents that work. It will help you make the connection between the addictive qualities of sugar and negative behavior and offer a healthy solution you and your whole family can live with.

Electronic Record Keeping: Achieving and Maintaining Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164

Electronic Record Keeping: Achieving and Maintaining Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164 Lowest new price: $136.36
Lowest used price: $197.17
List price: $165.00
Author: David Nettleton

The current revolution in software, and the regulations that have evolved to address it, have increasingly caused companies to turn to off-the-shelf software for electronic record keeping. Data captured in computerized systems must be as reliable, if not more so, than data on paper. Electronic Record Keeping: Achieving Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164 explores how to evaluate, select, implement, and document an e-system that will keep your organization in compliance.

Covering Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 11 and the parallel, recently passed Title 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164 of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), this book provides guidance for selecting, purchasing, installing, validating, and managing commercial off-the-shelf software for data collection and retention. It takes a number of years for industry standards for a new regulation to develop from dialog between companies and the regulating agency. These standards are in place for Part 11, which was passed into law in 1997. Healthcare providers who must implement electronic record keeping can learn how to best do it by understanding the parallel between the new HIPAA regulations and the industry standards for Part 11. Further, certain FDA-driven activities, such as patient record keeping in clinical trials, now must comply with the new HIPAA regs as well. To help companies achieve and maintain compliance, the authors cover audit trails, validation, documentation, training, and security and accountability. They discuss what the regulations say and what they mean.

Compliance may be mandatory, but it also makes good business sense. Companies that are compliant will always be poised to move forward, and they will avoid the grief that comes from poor or faulty record keeping and documentation. This book gives you the tools you need to keep your company both compliant and competitive.
