The elderly represent the fastest growing segment of the population in developed countries, reflected in the patient population presenting to EDs and hospitals. These patients more often than not have greater co-morbidities, more complicated workups and utilize more laboratory and radiologic services. This text is designed to teach emergency physicians how best to care for this specific demographic of patients. It addresses physiologic changes, high-risk conditions, and atypical presentations associated with elderly patients in the ED that result in frequent misdiagnosis or delays in diagnosis. It instructs the readers how best to care for elderly patients in order to minimize morbidity and mortality, addressing some of the difficult psychosocial issues that confront health care providers that care for elderly patients, such as psychiatric disease and end-of-life care. The utility of this text is not limited to emergency physicians, but it should be useful to all health care providers involved in the treatment of elderly patients with acute medical or surgical conditions.

Marks Chitaka Coping Strategies for the elderly looking after Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in rural Zimbabwe

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, grade: 2:2, National University of Science & Technology Zimbabwe (National University of Science and Technology), course: Masters Degree in Disaster Management, language: English, abstract: This study was carried out against the background of HIV/AIDS having caused an orphan care crisis in Zimbabwe, with the brunt of care falling on the elderly who are themselves weak and frail due to age and socio-economic challenges. This burden fell on mainly the grandmothers who have had to bear the burden of caring for large numbers of orphaned grandchildren, with little or no support from the surviving members of the extended family or other sections of the community and government. They faced a lot of challenges in their new care giving role which included lack of food, lack of money to pay for school fees for the orphans, etc, these challenges added on top of the health problems that the elderly caregivers were enduring with which were age related like BP, Back ache, Arthritis, diminished eye sight etc. Against this background the study sought to determine the major causes of orphanage care, to identify the major challenges faced by these elderly caregivers in taking care of the orphans, and also to establish the coping strategies used by these elderly caregivers in upbringing the orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) under their care. The study also determined the role played by Government and other...

ANKUR BARUA, M.A. BASILIO MENTAL HEALTH OF ELDERLY

Mental health is an integral component of health that helps a person to realize his or her own relational abilities using the psychomotor, affective and cognitive domains. A high prevalence of mental disorders is seen in old age and predominant among these is depression. The community-based mental health studies have revealed that the point prevalence of depressive disorders among the geriatric population in India varies between 13 and 25 per cent. Another common mental health problem of the elderly is dementia. The total prevalence of dementia rises sharply above age 75. Individuals with dementia have reduced survival. The prevalence of cognitive impairment has been estimated between 11% (cognitive impairment- no dementia: ages 65-74) and 98% (memory impairment on at least one objective test). The financial burden including medications, care giving and institutional care; increases with the severity. This book explores the mental health status of the elderly Indian population. It also evaluates the National Mental Health Programme in India and identifies the scope of improvement in the mental health care delivery systems for the elderly.

Starter cultures have great significance in the food industry due to their vital role in the manufacture, flavour, and texture development of fermented foods. Once mainly used in the dairy industry, nowadays starter cultures are applied across a variety of food products, including meat, sourdough, vegetables, wine and fish. New data on the potential health benefits of these organisms has led to additional interest in starter bacteria. Starter Cultures in Food Production details the most recent insights into starter cultures. Opening with a brief description of the current selection protocols and industrial production of starter cultures, the book then focuses on the innovative research aspects of starter cultures in food production. Case studies for the selection of new starter cultures for different food products (sourdough and cereal based foods, table olives and vegetables, dairy and meat products, fish and wine) are presented before chapters devoted to the role of lactic acid bacteria in alkaline fermentations and ethnic fermented foods. This book will provide food producers, researchers and students with a tentative answer to the emerging issues of how to use starter cultures and how microorganisms could play a significant role in the complex process of food innovation.

Kandappu Mylvaganam The Ethical Case for Clinical Ethics Committees

Modern health care increasingly faces ethical problems in relation to new technologies, costs and rationing and changing social values. An ageing population and an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases have led to difficult choices in allocation of limited resources. There is greater public awareness of ethical issues through media reporting and a greater demand for public accountability of health care professionals. Health care professionals need not only strive to give the best possible clinical care, but also have to consider the ethical dimensions of the care they provide. To ensure high ethical standards in patient care, individual health care professionals and health care institutions need support and advice.The author argues that clinical ethics committees serve that purpose.

2013 Reprint of 1959 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is the publication of the influential 1959 Rede Lecture by British scientist and novelist C. P. Snow. Its thesis was that "the intellectual life of the whole of western society" was split into the titular two cultures - namely the sciences and the humanities - and that this was a major hindrance to solving the world's problems. Published in book form, Snow's lecture was widely read and discussed on both sides of the Atlantic, leading him to write a 1963 follow-up, "The Two Cultures: And a Second Look: An Expanded Version of The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution."

Many countries are now extremely multi-ethnic. People from numerous overseas countries have made their homes in other countries, but they often have very little contact with Christians, and minimal understanding of the gospel. This book is about helping Christians and churches to understand the WHY, WHAT, HOW and WHEN of vibrant cross-cultural ministries, and to get involved.“Changing Lanes, Crossing Cultures. Equipping Christians and churches for ministry in a culturally diverse society” is a very practical guide to cross-cultural ministry. Its three authors, Choon-Hwa Lim, Andrew Schachtel and Mike Wilson are all cross-cultural practitioners in Australia, with many years of experience between them. Although the book is written from an Australian background, the authors believe that much of it is applicable in a wide range of countries and situations.Why “Changing Lanes”? There’s an urgent need for Christians and churches to learn appropriate and effective new skills, and to change approaches and directions in how we do ministry. This book will help them to undertake the crucial, challenging but very rewarding process of changing lanes in an increasingly multicultural environment.Changing Lanes, Crossing Cultures includes an examination of the biblical motivation for cross-cultural ministry, steps to overcome obstacles, practical information on how to get involved and many helpful anecdotes and case studies.

Espingardeiro Antonio Social Assistive Robots, a Roboethics Framework for Elderly Care

Over the coming decades we will require assistive technologies capable of providing, care, human dignity and quality of life through the aging process. Social Assistive Robots (SARs) start to demonstrate a high potential for being used in the areas of social and healthcare. Such close Human Robotics Interactions (HRIs) are likely to involve ethical scenarios that need to be addressed during the development and progressive introduction of SARs. In this book I investigate the current state of the art of HRI benchmarks for guiding the development and introduction of SARs with vulnerable groups. The benchmarks are reviewed based on a qualitative study drawing on the ethical principles of beneficence, non-maleficence, justice, autonomy and incorporating a social care ethos. The study, which examined the issues involved in practical HRIs was conducted in social care settings with elderly groups. As a result an extension of HRI benchmarks is proposed to create a Roboethics framework for the development and introduction of SARs.

Perhaps in your old culture, as in some non-Western cultures, the life of the individual is regarded as precious. Some cultures even seem to endow a person’s life with a certain measure of sanctity. In these other cultures, such person-oriented features are often played out loudly and visibly. And in the process of living according to the precepts of these features, the neighbors preach their benefits and the children sing the attributes, often in folkloric renditions of appreciation for the exceptional quality of their cultural tenets.

In such institutions optimal medical care and nutrition service should be provided.What is going wrong in community nutrition?How can you improve the situation?In the beginning they were only offering four meals per day.

Gerhard Kubik Angola in the Black Cultural Expressions of Brazil

The transplantation of African musical cultures to the Americas was a multi-track and multi-time process. In the past many historical studies of African diaspora music, dance and other aspects of expressive culture concentrated on events in the Americas. What happened before the American trauma and simultaneously in Africa was often looked at unhistorically. In this book, world-renowned ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik considers African music and dance forms as the products of people living in various African cultures which have changed continuously in history, absorbing and processing elements from inside and outside the continent, creating new styles and fashions all the time. African diaspora music then appears as a consequent and creative extension overseas of African musical cultures that have existed in the period between the sixteenth and the twentieth century. From this perspective African diaspora music cannot be described adequately in terms of "retentions" and "survivals," as if African cultures in the Americas were doomed from the outset and perhaps only by some act of mercy permitted to "retain" certain elements. Using field research and documentary sources, Kubik tracks down some aspects of the Angolan dimension in the panorama of African music and dance cultures in Brazil, and also addresses methodology applicable in the wider context of African diaspora cultural studies.

He was the named inventor, and recognition as the leader in tree science."The Tree Doctor" (1901) discussed Davey’s inventions and laid the groundwork for future patents (included in this edition: Patent #890,968 (1908) Process of Treating and Dressing a Bruise or Wound in the Trunk or Live Branch of a Live Tree, Patent #890,967 (1908) Means for Tying Tree Branches Together). He analogized tree surgery to physician care, effectively changing attitudes and perceptions. If you needed surgery, you visited the surgeon, not the local butcher.

Chris Gilleard, Paul Higgs Ageing, Corporeality and Embodiment

'Ageing, Corporeality and Embodiment' outlines and develops an argument about the emergence of a 'new ageing' during the second half of the twentieth century and its realisation through the processes of 'embodiment'. The authors argue that ageing as a unitary social process and agedness as a distinct social location have lost much of their purchase on the social imagination. Instead, this work asserts that later life has become as much a field for 'not becoming old' as of 'old age'. The volume locates the origins of this transformation in the cultural ferment of the 1960s, when new forms of embodiment concerned with identity and the care of the self arose as mass phenomena. Over time, these new forms of embodiment have been extended, changing the traditional relationship between body, age and society by making struggles over the care of the self central to the cultures of later life.

Nathan R Large, Laine M Lundquist Empyrean Stories. Short Tales of Empyrean Dreams

Our Empyrean Dreams are stories from a future civilization, where Humankind is only one of several star-faring cultures struggling to coexist in a shared galaxy. The most powerful of these cultures are joined together in a treaty organization known as the Collective. Commerce and self-interest are the binding principles of the Collective: member states hold standing to the degree their culture proves its economic power and value to the whole. The ruling cultures of the Collective distinguish themselves by their unique innovations and capabilities; the Humans of Terra were fortunate to possess talents sufficient to earn membership. Outside of the Collective’s elite, many more sentient species exist, either tolerating this authority as members or rejecting the Collective entirely. An uneasy peace holds both within and without this interstellar civilization. Most intelligent beings are more interested in pursuing their personal lives and goals and less concerned about galactic politics. They study, work, build, fight, and love as best they can within their own cultures and worlds. A few sentients find themselves drawn across borders: across cultures, across star systems, or even across realities. Scholars catch glimpses of how old, complex, and strange the Universe really is. Diplomats encounter the frayed threads of alliance and must decide whether to bind or cut them. Explorers traverse the tangled webs of civilization and navigation. Criminals seek advantage in the cracks of ...

Noa Mbunya Nursing Care Plans

Documenting nursing care provided to patients is an essential component of the nursing profession and it is best achieved through a nursing care plan. A nursing care plan is used to document and communicate nursing care. In the care of patients, each patient is regarded as unique. Therefore, a care plan demonstrates individualized patient care that is, care based upon changing and revised patient needs and coping abilities reflected in diagnoses, goals and interventions in the physical, psychological and socio-cultural areas of functioning. Furthermore, it helps professional nursing staffs to refine their understanding of nursing diagnoses and charting skills, to identify nursing problems in need of care and propose appropriate care plans. Despite the aforesaid advantages, nursing care plans remain largely unutilized by nurses in many healthcare institutions. This study sought to identify those factors (nursing work characteristics, nurse' characteristics, nursing administration characteristics, and care plan characteristics) that hinder nurses from using nursing care plans. This will help the nursing fraternity to improve documenting care in nursing care plans.

Fay Chou Memoir of Half a Banana

Born in Taiwan but gone to a junior high school in America, then back to Taiwan for college, and immigrated to America again, the author paints vivid pictures of postwar Taiwan and America in the sixties, and compares the Chinese and American cultures through education systems, the business world, and life in general. The author touches on growing pains; disillusionment; the wear and tear of marriage, parenting, and relationships; challenges and betrayal in the business world; finding herself at fifty-five; and her extraordinary and otherworldly encounters. She reveals complicated Chinese cultural traditions and recounts the Second Sino-Japanese War through her father's recollections. From working at a Buddhist organization and from taking care of her father, she comes to understand birth, aging, sickness, and death. The author considers herself "half a banana"-yellow on the outside but a bit white on the inside. Having lived in the States for forty-three years, she understands both Chinese and American cultures well and shows how the two cultures, especially the fundamental difference between them, have molded her life. Dotted with well-known Chinese sayings and anecdotes, Memoir of Half a Banana offers an interesting and truthful glimpse into the Chinese people and ideology.

In The Patient Revolution, author Krisa Tailor—a noted expert in health care innovation and management—explores, through the lens of design thinking, how information technology will take health care into the experience economy. In the experience economy, patients will shift to being empowered consumers who are active participants in their own care. Tailor explores this shift by creating a vision for a newly designed health care system that's focused on both sickness and wellness, and is driven by data and analytics. The new system seamlessly integrates health into our daily lives, and delivers care so uniquely personalized that no two people are provided identical treatments. Connected through data, everyone across the health care ecosystem, including clinicians, insurers, and researchers, will be able to meet individuals wherever they are in their health journey to reach the ultimate goal of keeping people healthy. The patient revolution has just begun and an exciting journey awaits us. Praise for the patient revolution «A full 50% of the US population has at least one chronic disease that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment. Our current health care system is woefully inadequate in providing these individuals with the treatment and support they need. This disparity can only be addressed through empowering patients to better care for themselves and giving providers better tools to care for their patients. Both of those solutions will require the development and application of novel technologies. In Krisa Tailor's book The Patient Revolution, a blueprint is articulated for how this could be achieved, culminating in a vision for a learning health system within 10 years.» —Ricky Bloomfield, MD, Director, Mobile Technology Strategy; Assistant Professor, Duke Medicine «In The Patient Revolution, Krisa Tailor astutely points out that 80% of health is impacted by factors outside of the health care system. Amazon unfortunately knows more about our patients than we do. The prescriptive analytics she describes will allow health care providers to use big data to optimize interventions at the level of the individual patient. The use of analytics will allow providers to improve quality, shape care coordination, and contain costs. Advanced analytics will lead to personalized care and ultimately empowered patients!» —Linda Butler, MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs/Chief Medical Officer/Chief Medical Information Officer, Rex Healthcare «The Patient Revolution provides a practical roadmap on how the industry can capture value by making health and care more personalized, anticipatory, and intuitive to patient needs.» —Ash Damle, CEO, Lumiata «Excellent read. For me, health care represents a unique economy—one focused on technology, but requiring a deep understanding of humanity. Ms. Tailor begins the exploration of how we provide care via the concepts of design thinking, asking how we might redesign care with an eye toward changing the experience. She does an excellent job deconstructing this from the patient experience. I look forward to a hopeful follow-up directed at changing the provider culture.» —Alan Pitt, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Avizia «Whether you're a health care provider looking to gain an understanding of the health care landscape, a health data scientist, or a seasoned business pro, you'll come away with a deeper, nuanced understanding of today's evolving health care system with this book. Krisa Tailor ties together—in a comprehensive, unique way—the worlds of health care administration, clinical practice, design thinking, and business strategy and innovation.» —Steven Chan, MD, MBA, University of California, Davis

Franz Gosch Ambient Assisted Living for the Elderly - Solutions to master the demographic change

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 8,4, Maastricht University (Faculty for Health, Medicine and Life Sciences), language: English, abstract: According to Eurostat statistics, the proportion of elderly people in Europe is increasing immensely. While fewer children are born, death is prolonged and people become older. This scenario of demographic changes in the western world raises questions to which answers are rather unclear, as for instance: Who will care for the elderly and how will this look like?The answer to this question may be ambient assisted living (AAL), a branch of information and communication technologies (ICT) aiming at keeping elderly persons as independent as possible in their familiar surroundings in order to postpone hospitalization.The EU plays a major role in developing AAL solutions and enhancing research in the area of ICT, as depicted by the 6th framework programme 2002-2006 or the EU's e-inclusion policy featuring the Digital Agenda 2010, just to name examples (European Commission, 2002; 2007; 2010). However, it remains questionable which challenges AAL - seen as an innovation - faces.The aim of the research in this thesis is to present the field of AAL with relation to home care. Furthermore, the work of the European Union (EU) in the field of AAL is presented, as the EU is a major key player in enhancing research on AAL solutions that help meeting the demands of the future. Moreover, a categorizatio...

Ajay Kumar Interdisciplinary oral care for hospitalized older people

The average length of life has risen from 47 to 73 years in this century, but the maximum life span has not increased. Older people commonly have multiple medical, physical and psychosocial problems impacting on their health. In a hospital setting where care tends to focus on the main medical reason for admission, many of these other problems can remain undetected and, hence, untreated. Oral health is an important component of overall health and well-being, for institutionalized elders. As people get older, the need for oral care increases. Older people are keeping their teeth longer and this trend will continue.Oral health, although rarely life-threatening, plays an essential role in the quality of life, management of medical problems, nutrition, and social interaction of the elderly. This book contains information to assist medical professionals,dentist,and service providers to improve the oral health of older people in their care and it can be applied for the assessment of older people in ambulatory, community and residential care settings.

At present, elderly people are surfing from dementia and Alzheimer's disease across the world. The aged population has been increasing and continues in the coming decades. Those elderly who are suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease require continuous attention. Therefore, these people need a responsible person (either a nurse or a family caretaker) to look after and provide support in any case of emergency. The number of these patients is dramatically increasing. This is difficult to care for them all by hiring a personal caretaker for each patient. Consequently, with the help of electronics and computer technology, scientists currently develop efficient and user-friendly devices that can help look after a patient easily or even remotely. Hence, it is possible to look after not only a single patient but also monitor a number of patients at the same time.

Theresia Nahsang Fokum The Potential of Faith-based organisations for social change. Contribution of Christian organisations to Elderly and Dementia care

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2013 in the subject Social Pedagogy / Social Work, University of Bonn (The Faculty of Protestant Theology), course: Ecumenical Studies, language: English, abstract: In this paper, I will explore the capabilities that Faith-Based Organisations have to change; behaviours, beliefs and the environment, especially regarding care of (elderly) and people with dementia in Cameroon. As far as taking care of the needy and the marginalized is concerned, Faith-Based Organisations in most parts of the world are very instrumental. Reason behind their interest in caring for the needy and marginalized I suggest, is the preservation of human dignity and promotion of well-being which is an idea supported by their different doctrines. FBOs have collaborated with governments, CSOs and CBOs to provide material and immaterial support and services geared towards addressing problems plaguing individual, families and communities, thereby contributing to, and promoting well-being through a change in their behaviours, environment, and beliefs. This social change goes a long way to enhance human dignity, giving people the opportunity to live a better life. FBOs are endowed with spiritual potentials as religious institutions, which give them credibility and legitimacy as an altruistic institution, and makes it easy for them to hire volunteers and win the hearts of donors who donate generously to support their projects, knowing that their donations will be judiciously used.

A trailblazing approach to choosing executives who both match the needs and fit the cultures of the organizations they will lead Leadership failures damage or even destroy companies every day. To reduce the costs of leadership failure, the author has developed a revolutionary process for selecting executives based on his years of consulting for some of America's largest corporations. The Right Leader details this new approach and how it eliminates the leadership failures that plague so many companies around the world today. When executives don't address the right needs, or can't lead the organization because of a poor fit with the corporation's cultures, the company loses competitive advantage, talented people, and momentum. The Right Leader introduces the revolutionary Match-Fit Model and explains how it reduces the risks and costs of executive failure by changing the factors that are considered and by taking into account the cultural dynamics at play in any organization. Nat Stoddard (New York, NY) is Chairman of Crenshaw Associates, a New York-based consulting firm specializing in career and transition management for senior executives.

In The Patient Revolution, author Krisa Tailor—a noted expert in health care innovation and management—explores, through the lens of design thinking, how information technology will take health care into the experience economy. In the experience economy, patients will shift to being empowered consumers who are active participants in their own care. Tailor explores this shift by creating a vision for a newly designed health care system that's focused on both sickness and wellness, and is driven by data and analytics. The new system seamlessly integrates health into our daily lives, and delivers care so uniquely personalized that no two people are provided identical treatments. Connected through data, everyone across the health care ecosystem, including clinicians, insurers, and researchers, will be able to meet individuals wherever they are in their health journey to reach the ultimate goal of keeping people healthy. The patient revolution has just begun and an exciting journey awaits us. Praise for the patient revolution «A full 50% of the US population has at least one chronic disease that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment. Our current health care system is woefully inadequate in providing these individuals with the treatment and support they need. This disparity can only be addressed through empowering patients to better care for themselves and giving providers better tools to care for their patients. Both of those solutions will require the development and application of novel technologies. In Krisa Tailor's book The Patient Revolution, a blueprint is articulated for how this could be achieved, culminating in a vision for a learning health system within 10 years.» —Ricky Bloomfield, MD, Director, Mobile Technology Strategy; Assistant Professor, Duke Medicine «In The Patient Revolution, Krisa Tailor astutely points out that 80% of health is impacted by factors outside of the health care system. Amazon unfortunately knows more about our patients than we do. The prescriptive analytics she describes will allow health care providers to use big data to optimize interventions at the level of the individual patient. The use of analytics will allow providers to improve quality, shape care coordination, and contain costs. Advanced analytics will lead to personalized care and ultimately empowered patients!» —Linda Butler, MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs/Chief Medical Officer/Chief Medical Information Officer, Rex Healthcare «The Patient Revolution provides a practical roadmap on how the industry can capture value by making health and care more personalized, anticipatory, and intuitive to patient needs.» —Ash Damle, CEO, Lumiata «Excellent read. For me, health care represents a unique economy—one focused on technology, but requiring a deep understanding of humanity. Ms. Tailor begins the exploration of how we provide care via the concepts of design thinking, asking how we might redesign care with an eye toward changing the experience. She does an excellent job deconstructing this from the patient experience. I look forward to a hopeful follow-up directed at changing the provider culture.» —Alan Pitt, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Avizia «Whether you're a health care provider looking to gain an understanding of the health care landscape, a health data scientist, or a seasoned business pro, you'll come away with a deeper, nuanced understanding of today's evolving health care system with this book. Krisa Tailor ties together—in a comprehensive, unique way—the worlds of health care administration, clinical practice, design thinking, and business strategy and innovation.» —Steven Chan, MD, MBA, University of California, Davis
