Restorative Gardens: The Healing Landscape

Restorative Gardens: The Healing Landscape Lowest new price: $39.02
Lowest used price: $2.51
List price: $50.00
Author: Ms. Nancy Gerlach-Spriggs

Restorative gardens for the sick, which were a vital part of the healing process from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century, provided ordered settings in which patients could begin to heal, both physically and mentally. In this book, a landscape architect, a physician and a historian examine the history and role of restorative gardens to show why it is important to again integrate nature into the institutional - and largely factorylike - settings of modern health care facilities. The authors present the history of restorative gardens and studies six American health care centers that cherish the role of their gardens in the therapeutic process. These institutions are examined in detail: community hospitals in Wasau, Wisconisn, and Monterey, California; a full-care mental institution in Philadelphia; a nursing home in Queens; a facility for rehabilitative medicine in New York City; and a hospice in Houston. In their comprehensive review the authors suggest that contemporary scientific understanding clearly recognizes the beneficial physiological effects of garden environments on patients' well-being. The book ends with a plea to make gardens - rather than the shopping mall atria so often seen in newly renovated hospitals - a vital part of the medical milieu.

Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor

Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor Lowest new price: $13.77
Lowest used price: $2.50
List price: $18.95
Author: James A. Feinstein
Brand: Brand: iUniverse Star, Inc.

Most people will, at some point or another, either find themselves dressed in a tiny hospital gown or staring at someone else dressed in a tiny hospital gown. Whether from the perspective of a patient, a family member, or a medical professional, we all have a significant stake in the process of medical education. While numerous memoirs recount physicians' grueling experiences during residency, few focus on the even more formative portion of medical training: the third year of medical school-the clinical year. Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor is the disarmingly honest, yet endearing and sometimes funny account of a medical student's humbling initiation into the world of patient care.

Written during his third year of medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, James Feinstein's Short White Coat uses a series of engaging narrative essays to illustrate the universal life lessons that his very first patients teach him. He gracefully examines some of the most common issues and feelings that medical students encounter while learning how to meet, talk with, touch, and care for their patients. Along the way, he learns from his own mistakes before discovering the answer to the question that plagues every medical student: "Do I have what it takes to become a doctor?"

Inclusion: The Politics of Difference in Medical Research (Chicago Studies in Practices of Meaning)

Inclusion: The Politics of Difference in Medical Research (Chicago Studies in Practices of Meaning) Lowest new price: $20.00
Lowest used price: $9.49
List price: $52.00
Author: Steven Epstein

With Inclusion, Steven Epstein argues that strategies to achieve diversity in medical research mask deeper problems, ones that might require a different approach and different solutions.

Formal concern with this issue, Epstein shows, is a fairly recent phenomenon. Until the mid-1980s, scientists often studied groups of white, middle-aged men—and assumed that conclusions drawn from studying them would apply to the rest of the population. But struggles involving advocacy groups, experts, and Congress led to reforms that forced researchers to diversify the population from which they drew for clinical research. While the prominence of these inclusive practices has offered hope to traditionally underserved groups, Epstein argues that it has drawn attention away from the tremendous inequalities in health that are rooted not in biology but in society.

“Epstein’s use of theory to demonstrate how public policies in the health profession are shaped makes this book relevant for many academic disciplines. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice

“A masterful comprehensive overview of a wide terrain.”—Troy Duster, Biosocieties

The author, Dr. Joseph Fins, pragmatically blends ethical theory and clinical practice, presenting readers with theoretical and historical considerations about end of life care and offering practical wisdom about the care of dying patients and their families. A Palliative Ethic of Care employs the ground-breaking Goals of Care Assessment Tool (GCAT) as a framework of knowledge that links practical considerations about patient care with more theoretical concerns to provide deeper insights into why end-of-life care is so challenging and to help foster necessary reform in how people die.
