Description : Care for the elderly, disabled and mentally-ill within and by the community forms a vital part of current social policy. Martin Bulmer argues that this policy is inadequately thought out and rests on a series of poorly founded sociological assumptions. As a result there is a vacuum at the heart of government's social care policy which is likely to lead to ineffective or deteriorating provision for those in need. This book, first published in 1987, will be essential reading for all those concerned with the organization and delivery of social care, whether as students, practitioners or teachers. It will be particularly useful for courses dealing with social policy, the personal social services and the social context of social work.

Description : The author, Steven Lewis, in superb life-long health, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a “ripple effect” that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously. Virtually all of us, at some point, will experience extreme life difficulties involving circumstances such as severe illness, injuries, accidents, divorce or natural disasters. A positive attitude can help us think clearly, be solution oriented and ultimately prevail. Whether Steven physically survived or not, an attitude of complaint and negativity would have shattered his emotional life and that of his family. Steven’s choice was to stay positive and upbeat in spite of his situation. What would you have done?

Description : 2020 Victorian Community History Award Winner Larundel Psychiatric Hospital was ‘the madhouse on the edge of town’ – until the 1990s, a Melbourne cultural icon shrouded in mystery in the outer suburb of Bundoora. What was it really like inside this madhouse? This story takes us into the heart of Larundel through the voices of former inmates and staff, exposing the best and worst aspects of the mental institutions of the times. It shows the shifts in psychiatric treatments, the social forces at play, and changes driving mental health policy. It explores what de-institutionalisation and ‘care in the community’ actually meant for those suffering mental illness, as well as for those treating, and caring for them. What did we lose with Larundel’s closure in 1999 and the move to acute psychiatric wards in general hospitals? The notion of asylum? Is the more recent notion of ‘recovery’ a hopeful signpost towards a brave new world for mental health? The authors are Sandy Jeffs, a former inmate of Larundel, who became an advocate for her ‘mad’ comrades and is now a poet of distinction; and Margaret Leggatt, sociologist, occupational therapist and activist for the friends and families of mentally ill people. ‘A significant and lively contribution to the history of mental health services in Australia, offering vital insights for the progress we must work for.’ – Jack Heath, CEO, SANE Australia

Description : Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award for 2009! "[This] book offers a coherent, theoretical, and research-guided framework for quality nursing caring in practice, education, and leadership; a foundational, timeless, yet transformative framework of substanceÖ." Jean Watson, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN College of Nursing, University of Colorado, Denver Dedicated time spent with patients and families in clinical settings is often limited, rushed, and impersonal. How can nurses develop more positive, caring relationships with their patients, and help to improve the quality of patient care at large? This book addresses this critical question by presenting Joanne R. Duffy's Quality-Caring Model©-the result of 35 years of clinical experience and educational acumen. This values-based model will bring caring back into the foreground of nursing practice by providing revised curricula for educational programs, and outlining the core caring principles for nurse administrators. Key Features: Establishes "Relationship-Centered Caring," with discussions on how to care for the self, patients and families, each other, and communities Offers multiple case examples, and includes reflective questions and applications for use in educational programs, workshops, conferences, and clinical practice Demonstrates how the Quality-Caring Model© can be implemented in clinical practice, nursing education, research, and nursing leadership settings Includes appendices that discuss how caring can improve patient safety, outline course objectives, and explain how to assess and measure caring in your facility Written in clear, accessible language, this book will be an invaluable resource to nursing students, nursing scholars, clinical nurses, nurse educators, nurse researchers, and nurse leaders. Duffy's approach will help create a redesigned patient care delivery system focused on the primacy of caring relationships.

Description : This text draws on feminist literature and research into community care policy and practice to provide an overview of the influence of, and attention to, gender. In documenting changes in social work and social care practice brought about by community care policies, it questions what understandings these provide of both community and caring. It explores how policies have impacted differently on women and men as users of social work and community care services, and concludes with an examination of how the experiences of those providing and receiving care contribute to constructions of gender.

Description : Recent community care changes have raised fundamental issues about the changing role of the public, voluntary and informal sectors in the provision of social care to older people. They have also raised issues about the health and social care interface, the extent to which services should be rationed and the respective roles of residential care and care at home. From Poor Law to community care sets these debates in the context of the historical growth of welfare services from the outbreak of the Second World War through to the establishment of social services departments in 1971. Based on extensive research on primary sources, such as the Public Records Office and interviews with key actors, the book considers the changing perceptions of the needs of elderly people, the extent to which they have been a priority for resources and the possibilities for a policy which combines respect for elderly people with an avoidance of the exploitation of relatives. This is an updated second edition of The development of welfare services for elderly people, first published by Croom Helm, 1985. It is essential reading for practitioners and policy makers interested in gerontology, policy studies, community care and postgraduate students studying and training in a range of health and social care related professions.

Description : Historically, community health nursing has responded to the changing health care needs of the community and continues to meet those needs in a variety of diverse roles and settings. Community Health Nursing: Caring for the Public's Health reflects this response and is representative of what communities signify in the United States--a unified society made up of many different populations and unique health perspectives. This text provides an emphasis on population-based nursing directed toward health promotion and primary prevention in the community. It is both community-based and community-focused, reflecting the current dynamics of the health care system.This is the textbook you've been waiting for: an undergraduate community health nursing text that is reader friendly, yet sophisticated; one that addresses communities, target populations, and individuals, and clearly draws the distinctions between each. It prepares students for addressing the problems of target populations in the community, as well as those of communities as a whole.Community Health Nursing provides unique coverage on the following topics:- health policy, including coverage of economics and managed care- nursing informatics, addressing telehealth implications, global health issues, and the fully-participating client of today- holistic health, including coverage of complementary and alternative, non-Western health practices and hospice
