Oral health care professionals are becoming increasingly aware that almost every clinical consultation raises scientific, ethical and legal challenges. While scientific challenges may be resolved using evidence-based medicine (EBM) approach, moral complexity must be resolved using ethical theory to justify decision making in the face of ethical conflict. Ethics and the dental team, the first title of its kind in South Africa, provides the theoretical background necessary for the resolution of ethical dilemmas. Ethics and the dental team uses case studies to demonstrate how to identify, analyse and apply ethical, moral and value concepts to scenarios that are encountered on a daily basis.

Many of the diseases people suffer from today are chronic and degenerative (e.g. cardiovascular disease, adult-onset diabetes or HIV/AIDS), and bring with them a range of psychological and social issues. Health care practitioners do not cure these diseases but take care of their patients by helping them understand and live with their conditions. Health, illness and disability: psychosocial approaches address the need for health care practitioners to be as skilled in working with and supporting people as in applying the assessment, therapy and/or treatment techniques for which they have been trained. Health, illness and disability emphasise a multidisciplinary team approach. Relevant aspects of the text have been illustrated with examples of indigenous South African situations as well as those of other cultures. Discussion questions, classroom exercises and/or home assignments have been provided to facilitate learning and application of the material covered.
Contents include the following: Emotional reactions to a disabling condition or disorder; counselling, family-focused interventions, group work and community work; psychosocial issues in TB, HIV/AIDS, cardiovascular disease and stroke; psychosocial issues in chemical dependency; dying, death and bereavement; the patient-practitioner relationship; multiculturalism, ethics and psychosocial issues in stuttering, cerebral palsy and autismpsychosocial issues in stuttering, cerebral palsy autism. Health, illness and disability is intended as an academic text for student health care practitioners, as well as teachers of children with special educational needs, such as deaf learners. It is also intended as a ready reference for qualified practitioners and anyone interested in psychosocial approaches to health, illness and disability.

A beautifully written and compelling memoir of a largely unexplored area of medicine: transplant surgery. Leading transplant surgeon Dr Joshua Mezrich creates life from loss, moving organs from one body to another. In this intimate, profoundly moving work, he examines more than one hundred years of remarkable medical breakthroughs, connecting this fascinating history with the stories of his own patients. Gripping and evocative, How Death Becomes Life takes us inside the operating room and presents the stark dilemmas that transplant surgeons must face daily: How much risk should a healthy person be allowed to take to save someone she loves? Should a patient suffering from alcoholism receive a healthy liver? The human story behind the most exceptional medicine of our time, Mezrich's riveting book is a poignant reminder that a life lost can also offer the hope of a new beginning.

In Living the Life Unexpected, Jody Day addresses the experience of involuntary childlessness and provides a powerful, practical guide to help those negotiating a future without children come to terms with their grief; a grief that is only just beginning to be recognised by society.

This friendly, practical, humorous and honest guide from one of the world's most respected names in childless support offers compassion and understanding and shows how it's possible to move towards a creative, happy, meaningful and fulfilling future - even if it's not the one you had planned.

Millions of people are now living a life without children, almost double that of a generation ago and the numbers are rising still. Although some are childfree by choice, many others are childless due to infertility or circumstance and are struggling to come to terms with their uncertain future. Although most people think that those without children either 'couldn't' or 'didn't want' to be parents, the truth is much more complex.

Jody Day was forty-four when she realized that her quest to be a mother was at an end. She presumed that she was through the toughest part, but over the next couple of years she was hit by waves of grief, despair and isolation. Eventually she found her way and in 2011 created Gateway Women, the global friendship and support network for childless women which has now helped almost two million people worldwide.

This edition, previously titled Rocking the Life Unexpected, has been extensively revised and updated, with significant additional content and case studies from forty involuntarily childless people (mostly women) from around the world.

Despite the fact that more than 80 percent of mental health care users make use of African indigenous practitioners, previous texts on mental health care in Africa have focused predominantly on sharpening Western-based competence, while paying scant attention to local African practices. A more holistic view is needed to reconnect mental health practitioners with the African community where value systems are rooted and transmitted, and thus allow them to provide better care. Mental health care in Africa is an evidence-based practice and research book focusing equally on Western and African indigenous mental health care practices so that the best can be taken from both. Mental health care in Africa starts to exert the African epistemology and ways of practice, without undermining the contribution of Western health care. Including African indigenous knowledge systems (AIKS) allows for broader dialogue and encourages original debate on concepts such as self-determination, informed consent, appropriate and relevant assessment, and care in the mental health arena. Contents include the following: Review of Western psychoeducation and findings in the African indigenous context; Planning and conducting therapeutic groups; Therapeutic interaction in HIV and AIDS care: an African approach; Management of aggressive and violent mental health care users; Sensory stimulation in mental health care users with dementia; Medicinal management; Substance rehabilitation and primary mental health care. Mental health care in Africa is aimed at mental health care practitioners and undergraduate students at universities and nursing colleges.

Nurse educators and managers of nursing schools function within the dynamics of a kaleidoscope of environments - in their schools, within the parameters of professional and higher education policies and legislation, and, in South Africa, in an extremely diverse society. Since they are part of the global nursing community, the realities of international standards compound their responsibilities. Nurse educators' guide to management acknowledges these challenges and aims to empower nurse educators and managers of nursing schools by creating awareness of areas that need to be explored and embraced to function effectively. Nurse educators' guide to management has been thoroughly revised to ensure relevance and currency. Two new chapters have been included - one on the essential technological environment and its management in the education of nurses, and the other on the management environment and its dynamics in a nursing school today. Nurse educators' guide to management also addresses the philosophical and socio-cultural, professional and ethical, leadership and quality challenges that a nursing school has to face as well as the healthcare, regulatory and educational environments in which a nursing school in South Africa functions. The mission of a nursing school in society and how it empowers through alliances and networking are extensively explored. This book is aimed at educators, managers of nursing schools and students preparing themselves for a career in nursing education. The authors of the book are experienced nursing professionals with a special interest in the education of nurses and the advancement of the structures, processes and outcomes of nursing education at institutional and national levels.
