Case Studies in Global Health: Millions Saved

Ruth Levine
©2007
ISBN: 978-0-7637-4620-9

One of the greatest human accomplishments has been the spectacular improvement in health since 1950, particularly in developing countries. With death rates falling steadily, more progress was made in the health of populations in the past half-century than in many earlier millennia. A careful look at that success can yield important lessons about how to tackle the challenges of HIV/AIDS, child health, and global health inequities in the future. This series of twenty case studies illustrates real-life proven, large-scale success stories in global public health. Drawing from a rich evidence base, the accessible case write-ups highlight experiences in scale-up of health technologies, strengthening of health systems, and the use of health education and policy change to achieve impressive reductions in disease and disability, even in the poorest countries.

Modernization and globalization are spreading many homogenizing sets of institutions and cultural codes across the world’s societies in almost all domains of life including law and justice. As a result of modernization and globalization, there has been emerging a global perspective on organizing the world’s polities and shaping the nature of their law, justice, and governance. Similar visions are emerging across the world’s societies for developing a system of criminal justice that is compatible with modernity.

Written for the undergraduate comparative criminal justice course, Comparative Criminal Justice: Global and Local Perspectives combines theoretical and methodological issues of comparison with historical and cultural analysis of crime and criminal justice in varying countries and cultures. Using a topical approach, it compares different systems of crime and justice in terms of their differences from and similarities to the laws and institutions of modern criminal justice, focusing on the United States as a standard of comparison. By examining different criminal justice systems in terms of their local peculiarities and understanding their change and continuity through the eyes of modernity, students will gain a well-rounded international perspective of the world's varying systems of criminal justice.

Death Investigations

ISBN: 978-1-4496-2674-7

Death Investigations is the first installment of the new Jones & Bartlett Learning Guides to Law Enforcement Investigation series! Many texts on criminal investigation present the same investigative process for all types of crime. However, each crime type requires a unique approach with distinct steps. An investigation involving a death is no different. All incidents of death should be processed as a homicide until it can be proven otherwise. In order to do so correctly, all investigative procedures specifically related to death investigation should be applied. Death Investigations is the first installment of the new Jones & Bartlett Learning Guides to Law Enforcement Investigation Series and presents the specific functions and processes necessary to accurately assess and document cases involving a death. It is critical for students preparing for a career in law enforcement and investigation to have a complete understanding of all death types (homicides, suicide, accident, natural, and undetermined), not simply homicides. Without delving too deep into the forensics or medico-legal aspects of death (i.e. gunshot wounds, sharp force injuries, etc.), this resource provides readers with the information necessary to accurately resolve the cases involving a death assigned to them as police officers and law enforcement personnel.

Glenn D. Walters
©2014
ISBN: 978-1-284-02117-2

Surveys administered to high school students, studies carried out on jail and prison inmates, and interviews conducted with substance abusers undergoing treatment all point to the same conclusion: drugs and crime are strongly connected. Why they are connected is less well understood, however. Written for middle to upper-level undergraduate courses on drugs and crime or substance abuse and crime, this book examines the drug-crime connection in a systematic and comprehensive way. Drugs, Crime, and Their Relationships covers the entire drug-crime spectrum, starting with a review of drug and crime terminology, classification and theory, and ending with policy implications for prevention, harm reduction, and macro-level management of the drug-crime problem. The opening chapters discuss drugs and crime separately for the purpose of setting the stage for later discussions on drug-crime relationships. As the book proceeds, the boundaries between drugs and crime blur, thus revealing the complex and intimate relationship that links these two behaviors.

Since some disease affect more than one body system, I have tried to match diseases with the more likely body system affected. The 16 anatomical units can be used with any text. Each unit begins with Background material. Then, the relationship between Signs and Symptoms and the body part affected is indicated in a body system illustration. The important section on Pathogenesis describes the cause, development, and effects of an infectious disease. Each unit ends with a brief synopsis of Treatment options for the infection.

The text proactively addresses challenges that span specialty areas well as issues unique to these areas of practice. This is the only resource available that addresses the range of ethical problems that advanced practice nurses face. Advanced practice nurses (APNs) share the same professional responsibilities that other practicing nurses do, however, given their expanded scope of practice they assume a role with greater responsibility. Advanced practice nurses are often the primary care givers for their patients but even when they are not, they assume total responsibility for some critical aspect of the patient's care. For example, nurse anesthetists are accountable for the safe induction and recovery of their patients (this includes understanding the unique nature of individuals), and diabetic clinical nurse specialists are responsible for the education and management of their especially vulnerable population and for educating others.

Pediatric Case Studies for the Paramedic

Stephen Rahm
©2006
ISBN: 978-0-7637-2582-2

Children are not simply adults. They commonly present with unique problems that are typically not encountered in older patients. These unique problems require the paramedic to alter, to some degree, his or her approach to the sick or injured child. Because a relatively small percentage of EMS calls involve a critically ill or injured child, it is common for the paramedic to experience anxiety when such a call is received. Pediatric Case Studies for the Paramedic contains 20 case studies representing a variety of pediatric emergencies that paramedics may encounter in the field. Pediatric Case Studies for the Paramedic is intended to reinforce the importance of a systematic patient assessment and management approach to paramedic students by presenting them with emergencies that they are likely to encounter while treating pediatric patients. A superb supplement to classroom and textbook learning, this book allows the reader to practice applying knowledge to cases before actually going on an emergency call.

XiaoHu Wang
©2010
ISBN: 978-0-7637-5106-7

Performance Analysis for Public and Nonprofit Organizations provides a step-by-step guide on how to conduct applied performance analysis to improve performance for public and nonprofit organizations. It is designed as a how-to-do manual for public and nonprofit managers who want to know how to conduct performance analysis. It features a practical case-study approach, and includes plentiful exercises and examples with easy-to-use demonstrations of Microsoft Excel. The book focuses on application of performance analysis tools, not the theory of performance management. This text is an effective learning tool for students in analytical technique courses in public administration and policy programs. With other texts, students may learn about a statistical concept and calculation, but still don't understand the managerial context where the statistical tool applies. Consequently, they often fail to understand the managerial importance of statistical tools they learn, and worse, fail to recognize the correct tool to use when a managerial issue rises. This book corrects this problem by providing a managerial context that bridges statistical concepts and the managerial reality. The managerial context is performance management, in which performance data are presented, monitored, and analyzed. It is in this performance management context that the usefulness and applicability of statistical tools are illuminated for the learner. Thoroughly classroom-tested, the book is designed as a textbook for courses of analytical and statistical techniques in public administration and nonprofit management. Each chapter starts with a discussion of tools and related concepts with examples, then presents a factual case study to demonstrate the use of the tools, and ends with a list of practice questions. Equipped with the latest research, the book is also designed for public and nonprofit managers on how to use performance information to improve organizational performance.

ISBN: 978-1-4496-5273-9

Provides a primer to understand pharmacogenetics (the study of genetic factors that influence how a drug works) in the applied context of pharmacokinetics (how the body handles a drug) and pharmacodynamics (the effects of a drug on the body). This valuable foundation illuminates how these principles and scientific advances can create optimal individual patient care, that is, “personalized medicine.” Through specific drug examples, this resource explores how the genetic constitution of an individual may lead to the need for an altered dose or in some cases alternative drug therapy. Real-world cases highlight the specific relationships between genetics, drug action, and the body’s response as well as adverse drug reactions, altered metabolism, and drug efficacy. Ethical issues concerning pharmacogenomics and study design are also discussed in this concise overview.
