General Practitioners are usually the first medical point of contact for elderly people, but
some doctors may fail to diagnose alcohol misuse in a population where there are other
urgent medical matters and some believe that it may be better for the individual to
continue in their established pattern of drinking as altering it could be harmful. Elderly
patients may show reluctance at disclosing their alcohol intake and relatives may wish to
hide the evidence of the misuse of alcohol and deny the existence of the problem.
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
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.
Even after I got through tampering with it, it was still a tiny thing, a barely tarnished gem. Seven rules of usage, eleven principles of composition, a few matters of form, and a list of words and expressions commonly misused — that was the sum and substance of Professor Strunk's work.
This stability provided reassurance that we could calculate an average rate for each age cohort
from across the five AHS periods (i.e., 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, and 2003). We then applied
these calculated rates to the Census population projections. The result is a reasonable set of
projections for the number of householders, within each age group, through 2030.
One of our research goals was to extend this to projections of tenure status (i.e., owning vs.
renting) for each age group. In order to do this, we used a method similar to that used to
Rarely does education seek to measure its health initiatives by assessing health outcomes such as biometrics
related to obesity, levels of disease transmission or the prevalence of substance use/misuse.
Meanwhile the health sector, not surprisingly sees its role to reduce levels of morbidity and mortality in the
community and to access the 5 to 17 year old population group with interventions (a term alien to the
education system). These interventions would often be based on information transfer to achieve these goals.
