Liaison mental health nursing is emerging as a significant role encompassing core skills which can be developed within a range of different settings with different client groups. This is the first book which attempts to clarify the role itself and the core skills which it requires, as well as exploring how it has developed within different acute and general settings.The contents are organised into three sections: The theoretical foundation (Section 1); Generic approaches and skills of the role (Section 2); and, Cognitive Behavioural approaches (Section 3). Each section contains chapters contributed by practitioners working in a number of different settings and each chapter emphasises core skills while providing examples from practice of how the role can develop and innovate in different ways. Specifically, each chapter contains sections on: relevant research; assessment; therapeutic approaches; practice guidelines and suggestions for referral. The presentation will include case examples and practical suggestions for individual case management and where appropriate a section on information and help for user and carers.
'This is an ambitious contribution to the ever-growing market for research textbooks. The book concludes with an excellent appendix on sources of literature...useful for postgraduate students and staff wishing to fill gaps and/or double-check their facts' - Physiotherapy 'In lieu of serving up the usual fare of methods and applications to be chosen from at whim, it concentrates on clinicians with limited time who wish to evaluate research rather than necessarily do it themselves...If you already have a book on research methods...this book will still fine-tune your antennae to the good, the bad and the cant' - The British Journal of Healthcare Computing and Information Management 'Recommended reading' - Oxford Brookes University, Oxford Practitioners across the caring professions increasingly need to know where evidence can be found and to evaluate different forms of evidence with a critical eye. This invaluable collection includes exemplars of a wide range of research techniques and provides a critical commentary for each. The commentary is designed to tackle jargon and demystify the text, highlighting the compromises that need to be made in real world research designs and the complexity of controlling relevant variables. The book seeks to underline the challenges of interpreting and generalising results both for the researchers and for those who fund their work. This is a set book for the Open University course K302 Critical Practice in Health and Social Care.
GIVE YOUR BABY THE BEST START IN LIFE In my years of experience, I have developed a holistic way of assisting couples with their pregnancies. My treatments and advice combine Eastern and Western medical knowledge as well as traditional and complementary health techniques. With this in mind, I have formulated an 'A to Z' with solutions for common pregnancy complaints and some fundamental pregnancy and childbirth information. This book will help you make informed choices, allowing you to play an active role in your pregnancy and labour. It is packed with wonderful self-help advice, is easy to use, and is a vital resource for both pregnant women and their caregivers. Proceeds from this book are going towards financing a clinic for pregnant mothers and young babies in rural South Africa. This will create a place where rural women can receive essential advice and support for healthier pregnancies and safer childbirth.
