Description : From reviews of the previous volume: "This volume should be quite useful to the target audience. It provides a good foundation for evidence-based practice and further research (4 stars)." --Doody's Book Review Service The nursing community is continually challenged with expanding the empirical knowledge base that informs rural nursing practice. This volume of the prestigious Annual Review of Nursing Research, Focus on Rural Health, addresses this challenge. Contributors have developed creative and effective strategies to identify relevant research and present them in the context of the rural delivery system. Topics include: Nursing Research to Meet Health Care Needs of Rural Populations Improving Systems, Quality of Care & Patient Safety Improving Cultural Relevance of Rural Nursing Research: Methodological Issues, Constraints, and Opportunities Also included: Contents of Previous 10 Volumes The contributors, all noted nurse scientists, discuss the key problems they deal with on a daily basis, utilizing recent rural and general health policy reports. This approach allows readers to learn new techniques and strategies for rural nursing practice that are firmly grounded in the evidence. While the primary examples are drawn from American contexts, a special chapter on global perspectives highlights analogous problems and issues that rural nursing research raises across countries, particularly the availability of resources. About the Editors This volume is edited by Elizabeth Merwin, Associate Dean, Research and the Director of the Rural Health Care Research Center at the University of Virginia School of Nursing. The series editor is Joyce J. Fitzpatrick, who has received numerous honors and awards including the American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year Award 18 times, and is the Elizabeth Brooks Ford Professor of Nursing, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University.

Description : Research Methodology remains a vital issue at the heart of all scholarly activity. Without a proper appreciation of Research Methodology and its correct application academic progress is not possible. One of the problems which Research Methodology offers the learner is the very wide range of options which are frequently available with which to answer a research question and this high level of choice can lead to indecision and sometimes confusion. This book is a compilation of a number of important papers on this subject selected by two leaders in this field of study. A wide range of topic have been chosen which lead the reader through some of the more important considerations in the field. The book is designed to help with this type of problem and the the current selection of papers which highlight a variety of research questions, problems and issues and an accompanying range of research methods and methodological discussions. Their authors have stated the research positions they have adopted and respective levels of justification and knowledge forms have been presented. These range from those forms of knowledge that might be found of use to practitioners to those that are more philosophically or academically inclined. A certain level of research impact is either implied or overtly presented in the selected papers. This book is an important text for academics, researchers and students as well as those interested in using research from a commercial point of view.

Description : CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, Ninth Edition, provides comprehensive coverage and the latest information on a full spectrum of substance use disorders and the compounds commonly abused. Topics include the abuse of and addiction to alcohol; how the active agent in marijuana, THC, affects neural growth and development; the emerging body of evidence suggesting a relationship between marijuana abuse and psychotic disorders; the emerging body of evidence suggesting that marijuana is not as benign as it was thought to be a few years ago; and the abuse of cough syrups. Adding to the book's usefulness and relevance, Doweiko also covers topics not usually discussed in other substance abuse texts, including abuse of anabolic steroids, inhalants, infectious diseases associated with substance abuse, how the “war on drugs” has actually contributed to the problem of substance abuse/addiction in this country, and the “medical marijuana” debate. This edition includes new information on synthetic marijuana, mephredone, and dextromethorphan, among other substances; updates reflecting the new DSM-5; and a new chapter on the Biopsychosocial Model of Addiction. Students report that they appreciate the author's balanced approach, which allows them to form their own opinions, in contrast to some books that “preach” that “drugs are bad for you.” Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Description : In traditional business circles, wisdom is viewed with a certain scepticism, which is in part due to its historical associations with wisdom traditions and spiritual cultures. However, in business today, wisdom is emerging not only as a viable but also a necessary organizational and management practice. In particular, practical wisdom is being updated and retranslated for today’s issues and concerns in organizations. In recent years, leadership and organizational studies have initiated important changes in the way in which business-as-usual is conducted. In response to the increasingly complex and uncertain conditions of our international business environment, a growing community of ‘scholar-practitioners’ are pushing the boundaries of traditional organizational and leadership thinking and acting, making inroads into processes and applications of practical wisdom and ways of wise leading and managing. Given the unprecedented levels of challenges, dynamics and uncertainties that today’s organizations are exposed to, there is a need for a more integrative and sustainable approach to managing. Following the need for a reconsideration and revival of the meaning of wisdom, the editors explore vitalizing possibilities for the learning of wise practices in organizing and leading. This expansive range of domains where wisdom is currently being explored suggests a promising number of perspectives and possibilities for future inquiries and explorations into the nexus of wisdom and organization, leadership/management education and learning that benefits from cross-disciplinary synergies. This book will be of interest to those seeking to understand the growing significance of wisdom in relation to learning and teaching, especially in business and management education.

Description : Whistleblowing is often about disclosing wrongdoings by members of organisations to persons or organisations that may be able to effect action. Media would at times publish stories of whistleblowers who engage in ‘heroic’ acts of exposing wrongdoings at work, but the whistlebowers often face significant negative consequences of their whistleblowing efforts. This book examines effects of national and organisational cultures on the whistleblowing decisions of employees. The book provides empirical evidence of association between organisational culture and whistleblowing and there appears to be a lower likelihood of whistleblowing in organisations that focus more on the cultural dimensions of respect for people, innovation and stability. It also illustrates how remaining silent or blowing the whistle in response to observed wrongdoings affects employees’ key work-related attitudes. This book would interest those wish to gain better understanding of the relationship between culture and whistleblowing in organisations.

Description : "This collection is a timely and excellent contribution to the study of resilience and the field of gerontology."--Anthropology and Aging Quarterly This state-of-the science, multidisciplinary Annual Review of Gerontology and Geriatrics provides a comprehensive examination of critical issues on resilience in a variety of life domains central to the well-being of older persons. It examines the role of resilience in determining adjustment and function in the domains of health, grief and bereavement, physical activity and functioning, spirituality, work, retirement, intellectual/cognitive functioning, coping with life events, care giving, and mental health interventions. The first section of the book addresses such domains of resilience as immunological function, stress and mood disorders, emotional and cognitive resilience, adjustment to cultural and environmental changes, and spirituality.

Description : Community music as a field of practice, pedagogy, and research is swiftly coming of age. The past decade has witnessed an exponential growth in practices, courses, programs, and research, both in classrooms and within the organizations dedicated to the subject. The Oxford Handbook of Community Music gives an authoritative and comprehensive review of what has been achieved in the field to date and what might be expected in the future. This Handbook addresses community music through five focused lenses: contexts, politics, interdisciplinary approaches, education and training, and research and evaluation. It not only captures the vibrant, dynamic, and divergent approaches that now characterize the field, but also charts the new and emerging contexts, practices, pedagogies, and research approaches which will define it in the coming decades. The contributors to this volume outline community music's common values that center on social justice, human rights, cultural democracy, participation, and hospitality from a range of different cultural contexts and perspectives. As such, The Oxford Handbook of Community Music provides a snapshot of what has become a truly global phenomenon.
