shifting from solely reproductive issues and biological factors, to an expanded
perception that women’s health encompasses biological, familial, cultural, economic,

s of this writing , there have
been 169 laboratory-conﬁrmed human cases of H5N1 inﬂuenza – avian ﬂu–and 91 of those people have died. It is impossible to know whether this particular strain of ﬂu will mutate in such a way as to be easily transmissible between people and whether the virus will remain as lethal as it currently is. But if those things happen and a pandemic ensues, then, “in the best of circumstances,” the World Health Organization says, it would kill 2 million to 7.4 million people. In a worst-case scenario, more than 100 million would die, several times...

The use of fibre optic sensors in structural health monitoring has rapidly accelerated in recent years. By embedding fibre optic sensors in structures (e.g. buildings, bridges and pipelines) it is possible to obtain real time data on structural changes such as stress or strain. Engineers use monitoring data to detect deviations from a structure’s original design performance in order to optimise the operation, repair and maintenance of a structure over time.

Globalization exerts positive and negative impacts on health and has
been linked to reduced government expenditures on health, education,
and social programs, and restructured workplace and home life. Globalization
is altering gender roles and relationships and influencing health
determinants. Asymmetric rights and responsibilities, labor market segregation,
consumption patterns, and discrimination are influenced differently
by globalization and affect men and women’s health in distinct ways.
This chapter provides a brief overview of the history of
women’s health and the array of factors that have played
a central role in shaping it. First, it presents a background
describing gender-based disparities in health care. It then
discusses the cultural context in which women have
been perceived by society, their representation in the
health care workforce, and the development of the medical
specialty of obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), as
well as social, economic, and political forces that have
shaped the medical care provided to women....
Acknowledging the tremendous changes in the health care system, this book offers a current and fresh perspective on nursing in the 21st century. A departure from the "medical model", its emphasis on client education, shifting delivery of care, and a collaborative approach fosters a practical view of the challenges the student will encounter in the workplace. Core content areas are covered in detail, including pathophysiology, normal and high-risk pregnancy, and women's health across the life-span.
Psychiatrists and diverse other mental health and broader healthcare professionals
are faced with many challenges in effectively evaluating and treating
persons with psychiatric illnesses and substance use disorders. Resources are
often stretched thin, especially for those with the most serious and disabling
conditions, and many people who would benefit from treatment are untreated,
undertreated, or treated only after extended delays for complex reasons.
Clinicians clearly have difficulties and barriers in their efforts to provide
comprehensive, efficacious, and timely treatment.
