A book such as this would not have been written twenty years ago.An awareness
of men as gendered is fairly new in health and social welfare. It took some years
after the early development of social scientific interest in the social construction
of masculinity for academics and practitioners to show an interest in practical
engagement with men as gendered – that is, in engaging with men in such a way
as to recognise how their identities and conduct are shaped by the way they are
raised as men.
This book has emerged from our experience in the education of allied health
professionals (AHPs), particularly student occupational therapists. As tutors we
were aware that students, especially as they neared qualification, struggled to
find a suitable textbook examining the key areas that contextualised their study
of profession-specific skills.

In its broadest sense, restraint is about preventing individuals from doing
something they wish to do, including placing limits on people’s will or
ability. There are a host of issues and perspectives to consider if we are to
have an intelligent debate about the use of restraint. The practice tends to
grab the media spotlight and it is not uncommon for coverage to centre on
the abuse of an individual or group of older people, typically living in care
or nursing homes, or during a stay in hospital. When we hear or read about
the restraint of older people strong feelings can be raised....
Diabetes-related cardiovascular complications often cause premature mortality,
as well as disabilities such as blindness, foot ulceration and amputation.
The health care and social care costs of managing these complications are
enormous, but new treatments, devices and clinical management protocols
are steadily improving the longer term outcomes for people with diabetes.

The world today is changing at a tremendous speed; advances in technology
and communication and changes in the political, economic, demographic
and social changes, all touch our lives. These changes also impact on health
care provision, and the delivery of health services. The aim of this book is to
empower would – be leaders of nursing and allied health professions to be
effective. Leadership in health care is a high priority in the UK and, at the
time of writing, is top of the list for the National Health Service Federation.
Chambers (1995) described the eight diminution of deprivation among the
elderly as poverty, social inferiority, social isolation, physical weakness, vulnerability,
seasonality, powerlessness and humiliation of the aged. The poverty is sought to be a major
risk of ageing in developing countries (Sen K1994) and study by world bank reveals that in
the most of developing countries the older people and dependent are poor and vulnerable
(world Bank 1994). The linkage between ageing and poverty and deprivation can have three
channels of relations.
How population growth damages the quality of life and the environment Why immigration is not a ‘fix’ for an ageing population Why an ageing society is inevitable for the UK and the rest of the world Why health care will be affordable in an ageing society Why we should welcome an ageing society Why Europe’s low fertility is set to bounce back up Why there are no labour shortages in Europe or the UK How immigration can lead to worse pay and conditions for native workers
The use of non-biomedical therapeutics and the management of cancer are
high profile issues in health internationally. They both generate, in their
own right, considerable debate amongst academics, practitioners and the
wider public. Increasingly, as non-biomedical approaches have become
more and more a feature of the range of therapeutic options available to
cancer patients, the two have become inextricably linked. This book is concerned
with that increasingly evident combination.
In 1978 the Conference of Alma Ata stated in Section VI: “Primary health care is essential
health care based on practical, scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and
technology made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community through
their full participation and at a cost that the community and country can afford to maintain at
every stage of their development in the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination.
Midwives’ unique contribution to public health is that they work
with women and their partners and families throughout pregnancy,
birth and the postnatal period to provide safe, holistic care. For
optimum effect, midwifery needs to be ﬁrmly rooted in the
community where women and their partners live their lives.
As nations seek to strengthen their health systems, they are increasingly looking to primary health care (PHC) to provide a clear and comprehensive sense of direction. The World Health Report 2008 analyzes how primary health care reforms, that embody the principles of universal access, equity and social justice, are an essential
The verification of care needs is the responsibility of the long-term care insurance funds. The
funds entrust the task of identifying, verifying and assessing the severity of care needs to the
Medical Review Board of the Statutory Health Insurance Funds, which is primarily made up
of doctors and nurses. The assessment takes place in the home of the insured person provided
they give their consent. If such an assessment is not performed the insurance funds are
entitled to refuse to pay benefits.
This text-book is intended for college and high-school classes. Most of the facts stated in it have become,
through the researches and publications of recent years, such commonplace knowledge that a reference to
authority in each case has not seemed necessary. Statements on more doubtful points, and such personal
opinions as I have had occasion to express, although not supported by references, are based on a somewhat
careful study of the sources. To each chapter is subjoined a bibliographical paragraph with the titles of the
most important secondary authorities.
This book is about change in the management of public services – how
much of it and what consequences. For over two decades the goal of
restructuring welfare provision has been at the heart of UK government
policy. Under the Conservatives the focus was on controlling expenditure
and re-organising services to make professionals more accountable
for resource decisions. In health, education and social care, the objective
was to install a system of managed provision heavily influenced by
the practices of private firms.
This book considers the broad range of support given to mothers including social, psychological and clinical. It also looks at the provision of this service and how different models have been set up internationally to fulfill this important function. It brings together the latest research findings, which examine the nature of care that is provided and consider what constitutes effective and efficient support.
This aspect of care is considered a crucial part of the increasing and expanding role of the midwife.
Early care and education (ECE) is an important industry in California, serving more than 850,000
California children and their families and bringing in gross receipts of at least $5.6 billion annually.
The industry not only benefits the children who receive care, but also strengthens the California
economy as a whole, which is especially important during this time in which California is struggling
with high unemployment and a weak economic recovery. This paper discusses the range of
economic benefits that the ECE industry brings to California. ...
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.
Study objectives: to describe and analyze the needs, supply and utilization status of health care services to Dao women on cultural, ethnic and social aspects in some communes in Bach Thong district, Bac Kan province.
