Approximately one-third of the population in Western societies experiences regular dyspepsia, although more than half selfmedicate with over-the-counter antacid preparations and do not seek medical advice. Up to 50% of those who do will have demonstrable pathology, most commonly gastro-oesophageal reflux or peptic ulceration. The remainder, in whom no abnormality is found, are diagnosed as having nonulcer dyspepsia.The pathophysiology and treatment differ for each of these three conditions.
In the following pages, we aim to take Emerson’s advice. This text is a serious examination
of clinical interviewing as a professional activity; it includes the “grammar, writing,
reading, and arithmetic” of professional interviewing. But in the spirit of Emerson,
we have also smuggled in some contraband, and we encourage you to do the same. For
our part, we include occasional humor, the practical application of fantasy through
skill-building activities, and stories of our own and our colleagues’ pitfalls and successes.
In the light of changes to health and safety law, and the continuing development of
best practice by the event industry, the guide has been reviewed and revised. The
advice in this publication has been tried and tested and lays down a firm foundation
on which to organise health and safety at music events. Many of the chapters can
be applied to other types of event which, although not necessarily having a musical
theme, share some of the common characteristics of music events.
This publication will enable event organisers, local authorities, the emergency
The developed world has an increasingly aging
population, with approximately 10% of the
population aged over 65 years. As the incidence
and prevalence of blood disorders increases with
age, these conditions are a heavy burden on
Blood Disorders in the Elderly will provide hematologists,
geriatricians, and all clinicians involved in
the care of patients with blood disorders with clear
clinical advice on the diagnosis and management

Services to implementing agencies. The limited capacity of
implementing agencies to mainstream gender-responsive approach-
es sometimes constrains the success of Bank projects and programs.
The Bank itself has a limited capacity to provide technical assistance
to implementing agencies, but one region has successfully estab-
lished technical service facilities that rely on part-time consultants to
advise these agencies on integrating gender-responsive approaches
into project implementation.
Because CHWs hold the esteem of their peers, they are effective in promoting change and challenging stigma
surrounding HIV/AIDS, harmful traditional practices, and prejudices against family planning. They are
motivated by a sense of duty to care for others around them and many were caring for others long before they
received Pathfinder’s training. The training enables them to offer a wider range of services, gives them confidence
that they are giving correct advice, and teaches them how to safely care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Management has clarified standards for conducting the CGAs,
and the Gender and Development Board will provide technical sup-
port and advice. In countries where the Bank has an active lending
program and where no CGA has recently been completed, an initial
CGA will be completed early in the program’s implementation peri-
Community palliative care clinical nurse specialists (commonly known
as Macmillan nurses) play an important role in specialist palliative care
(Skilbeck et al. 2002). They spend time with patients and their families,
helping them come to terms with an array of complex emotional
and practical problems, facilitating communication, giving information
and advice about treatments and also offering expertise in controlling
pain and other distressing symptoms. These nurses are equipped with
specialist skills to assess the complex palliative care needs of patients
referred to the service.

Work is underway to review and update the Bank’s policy state-
ments on investment and adjustment lending; these reviews will
provide the framework for considering appropriate integration of the
gender dimension into these policy statements.
Because analytical work and JSAs are central to this strategy, the
Bank’s Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network will
play an important role in implementation.
The genuine saving indicator marks a step forward by the Bank to move away from simple GDP
per capita calculations and introduce some human and environmental considerations into
mainstream national accounting. Because of its simple and striking nature it looks set to be a
major factor in key Bank documents and policy advice. Perhaps it will even become the figure
which represents the combined total of the two sides of the “national balance sheet” outlined in
Wolfensohn’s CDF proposal.
However, it suffers from flawed data and methodology.
We see this work as an opportunity to break new ground. In Health Care

worldwide. Its membership comprises national associations of nursing deans and schools of
nursing and is able to offer information, support, and advice to healthcare policy makers and

The purpose of this book is to provide the inexperienced scientist, notably
junior faculty, residents, and predoctoral clinical students, with practical
guidance on how to go about finding a research project and how to design
appropriate studies and then write up the results. In order to provide a
useful “how to” book, the approach is to give concrete advice and information
as well as show how a program of research work can be developed,
analyzed, and presented.
Food-Borne Botulism After ingestion of food containing toxin, illness varies from a mild condition for which no medical advice is sought to very severe disease that can
result in death within 24 h. The incubation period is usually 18–36 h but, depending on toxin dose, can range from a few hours to several days. Symmetric descending paralysis is characteristic and can lead to respiratory failure and death. Cranial nerve involvement, which almost always marks the onset of symptoms, usually produces diplopia, dysarthria, dysphonia, and/or dysphagia.
