  • Child maltreatment constitutes a social problem that affects all societies of the world. A recent study by the World Health Organisation points out that millions of children suffer some form of maltreatment and require medical and social attention. It should be noted that around 53,000 children are murdered every year; the prevalence of sexual abuse is 73 million (7%) and 150 million (14%) in boys and girls, respectively, under 18 years of age; and between 25% and 50% of the children inform that they have been physically abused....

  • I’ve been thinking about putting this book together for several years. During two de cades of writing about nursing, I’ve read many inspirational books, articles, and essays that offer up the literary equivalent of comfort food for RNs. The authors invariably mean to be helpful to the nursing profession by lifting the spirits of its practitioners at a time when so many are feeling tired, stressed out, dispirited, or unappreciated.

  • A frank discussion alone with the patient before the examination provides op- portunity to discuss any sexual symptoms or concerns without another person present. Common reasons for fearing or avoiding pelvic examinations include embarrassment, lack of information, cultural or language barriers, pain with previous examinations, or post-traumatic stress related to sexual abuse. Each of these circumstances requires additional sensitivity and efforts to minimize emotional or physical discomfort. Often, given an opportunity, patients can articulate ways to decrease personal discomfort.

  • Public health is emerging as one of the most important drivers in midwifery, and yet there are few textbooks that address the midwife’s role in public health. This book summarises the important developments in public health over recent years and will relate the recommendations to midwifery practice in a clear and easily understood manner. It highlights issues around health inequalities pertinent to maternity services and promotes individualised, non-judgmental approaches to care.

  • The absorption of midwifery into medical practice is a recent process, a development linked in many western countries with the diminishing role of midwives, the increased involvement of the man-midwife, the general practitioner and the obstetrician in the birthing process and, in the twentieth century, the increased hospitalization of childbirth.

  • The care of a woman and her baby in the immediate hours, days and weeks following birth can make an enormous difference to their longterm health and well-being. The content and timing of postnatal care led by midwives was formalised in the United Kingdom following a statutory legislation that was first introduced in England in 1902. Then there were concerns that too many women were dying following birth.

  • This is an exciting and timely book. It describes how nurses are pioneering complementary therapies within the medical system to give comfort and healing to their patients. It is 40 years since I graduated from general nursing training at Prince Henry’s Hospital Melbourne with deep disappointment about the medical model of 1960. Perhaps my greatest concern was that nurses had insufficient opportunity and resources to give true caring to their patients.

  • No one is immune from the risk of abuse. The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that 818,000 elderly Americans were victims of domestic abuse in 1994. 16, 17 There are far fewer data on lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual (LGTB) victimization. However, the available literature suggests similarly high rates for LGTB adolescent and adult populations 18, 19 with higher rates in male same-sex relationships than female.

  • Women who are abused have poorer mental and physical health, more injuries, and a greater need for medical resources than non-abused women. 4 The WHO Multi-Country Study on Women’s Health and Domestic Violence found that abused women in Brazil, Japan, and Peru are almost twice as likely as non-abused women to report their current health status as poor or very poor. 5 The impact of gender-based abuse on physical health can be immediate and long-term. Women who are abused rarely seek medical care for acute trauma, however.

  • Including urinary issues in the gynecologic evaluation is helpful. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common reasons to seek medical care and are sometimes triggered by sexual activity. Urinary incontinence is an increasingly recognized health problem (see Chapter 10). Finally, because domestic violence is common (2), screening for current or previous physical, emotional, or sexual abuse is an important part of the pa- tient’s history and in some states is mandatory.

  • Early researchers in the field played down individual personality disturbances as causal agents of family violence in favour of social and cultural factors (27). More recently, though, research on family violence has shown that abusers who are physically aggressive are more likely to have personality disorders and alcohol-related problems than the general population (28).

  • Most of the early work on abuse of the elderly was limited to domestic settings and carried out in developed countries. In seeking explanations for elder abuse, researchers drew from the literature in the fields of psychology, sociology, gerontology and the study of family violence. To accommodate the complexity of elder abuse and the many factors associated with it, researchers have turned to the ecological model, which was first applied to the study of child abuse and neglect (24) and has been applied more recently to elder abuse (25, 26).

  • The abuse of older people by family members dates back to ancient times. Until the advent of initiatives to address child abuse and domestic violence in the last quarter of the 20th century, it remained a private matter, hidden from public view. Initially seen as a social welfare issue and subsequently a problem of ageing, abuse of the elderly, like other forms of family violence, has developed into a public health and criminal justice concern.

  • According to the focus group study in South Africa mentioned earlier, much of the abuse – and particularly domestic violence – occurred as a result of social disorder, exacerbated by crime, alcohol and drugs. Similar conclusions came from an exercise conducted by seven male community leaders of the Tamaho squatter camp in Katlehong, South Africa (15).

  • Courts are now required to notify all domestic violence offenders of the two federal domestic violence-related gun prohibitions. Courts must inform all domestic violence offenders that they may be subject to federal firearm prohibition(s). The notification should also inform the abuser of applicable state, tribal, or territorial laws that may limit purchase or possession of firearms and ammunition. It is important that offenders are aware of these prohibitions.

  • To plan and conduct their attack, the 9/11 plotters spent somewhere between $400,000 and $500,000, the vast majority of which was provided by al Qaeda. Although the origin of the funds remains unknown, extensive investigation has revealed quite a bit about the financial transactions that supported the 9/11 plot. The hijackers and their financial facilitators used the anonymity provided by the huge international and domestic financial system to move and store their money through a series of unremarkable transactions.

  • In 1999, in collaboration with an expert advisory committee, the FVPF published Preventing Domestic Violence: Clinical Guidelines on Routine Screening. This document endorsed a set of national guidelines on screening for abuse and offered recommendations on whom to screen, how often and in what settings. As inquiry for domestic violence becomes more widespread, the need to expand these guidelines to include guidance regarding assessment and response has become apparent.
