  • Mental health care is an essential but often forgotten component of health care. Nurses are core health-care providers and they need to be able to contribute effectively to mental health care. In reality, however, most low and middle income countries do not have adequate numbers of nurses, and the education and training of nurses in these countries provide little of the knowledge and skills necessary for good mental health care. The result is poor or no mental health care for those who need it.

  • 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.

  • The pattern of health care provision is changing in Britain, due to the increasing focus on primary care. This is exemplified by the policies of the Labour government (elected in 1997) that stipulated that the majority of health care should eventually be provided in a primary care setting. As a reflection of this trend, undergraduate medical education is now based more in the community rather than in the hospital. These changes in medical education will influence the priorities and expertise of future doctors and elevate the status of primary care medicine....

  • Patients provide valid informed consent to a treatment or a diagnostic procedure if they have sufficient capacity, have been given appropriate information, and give consent freely without coercion or undue influence. When a patient’s capacity for treatment consent is in doubt, a clinician must determine whether the patient indeed has the capacity. It is a common reason behind requests for psychiatric consultations in a general hospital (Appelbaum, 2007).

  • 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.

  • At some point, one in five children and adolescents in the UK will suffer distress or disorganisation of their behaviour sufficient to be considered ‘disordered’ (Office for National Statistics, 2005). Much of this ‘disorder’ will be dealt with informally and resolve or persist at a low level, accumulating over time to present at a later stage. Some children and adolescents will be dealt with by various professionals in various capacities – teachers, school nurses, general practitioners (GPs), social workers – and never come to the attention of ‘specialists’.

  • During the past twenty-five years I have been engaged in the practical work of ministering to the needs of the insane. This work has resulted in a gradual development of that form of treatment which has been designated as "The Hospital Idea". In other words, the asylum has given place to the hospital in the protection and restoration of mental invalids. The fact is now generally recognized that the insane man is a sick man, and needs for his comfort and cure the application of such means as are ordinarily used for the benefit of the sick in a modern general hospital. Acting under this...

  • Overall, the strength of evidence for specific design features in these interventions was low or insufficient. This is attributable, in large part, to differences in the types of interventions and, subsequently, in the mix of results. Looking closely within categories of design features, however, the following specific design features seemed to improve comprehension for low-health-literacy populations in one or a few studies: (1) presenting essential information by itself (i.e.

  • Many psychiatric institutions, general hospitals and social care homes in countries continue to use caged beds routinely to restrain patients with mental disorders and mental retardation. Caged beds are beds with netting or, in some cases, metal bars, which serve to physically restrain the patients. Patients are often kept in caged beds for extended periods, sometimes even years. This type of restraint is often used when staff levels or training are inadequate, and sometimes as a form of punishment or threat of punishment.

Modest, ancient inns and primeval resorts have given way to our complex hospitality society of small bed and breakfasts, budget motels, mega resorts, lavish boutique hotels and everything in between.
