 Emergency  Comments Off on Collaboration and Governance in the Emergency Services: Issues, Opportunities and Challenges
Sep 022019
 


“Globally, emergency services are witnessing a period of unprecedented uncertainty and change caused by pressure on their budgets, reduced manpower and changing patterns of demand and service delivery. Such challenges are also having huge implications on the workforce health and wellbeing. This book is a timely, well-researched addition to improve our understanding of the governance and collaboration issues in the emergency services.”
Steve McGuirk, Chairman, Warrington and Halton Hospitals Trust, Former Chief Fire Officer and CEO, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service

“Good governance, collaboration and sound leadership are easy qualities to take for granted in the Emergency Services. However, given the increasing complexity of the challenging political and operational environments these organisations work in, it is not reasonable to assume these qualities will always emerge as a natural phenomenon. This book is a welcome addition that provides invaluable, evidence-based insights for leaders who are seeking to raise the quality of their services for both the public and their workforce alike.”
Andy Newton, Immediate Past Chair, College of Paramedics and Former Paramedic Director, South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust (SECAmb)

This unique text provides fresh insights and understanding of the governance and collaboration issues between emergency services in a dynamic policy and organisational environment in a global world. The book offers critical insights into the theory and rationale behind the interoperability and collaboration between the emergency services and examines in detail, important themes around trust, leadership, workforce wellbeing and resilience and professional culture(s), each having great significance for the success of the interoperability and governance agenda. The chapters cover new materials, including the research conducted by the authors and are written in a style that is easily accessible. This book caters to a wide audience of researchers, academics, students, emergency services staff, leaders and public managers, both in the UK and internationally.

Fleisher and Ludwig’s 5-minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult

 Emergency, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Fleisher and Ludwig’s 5-minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult
Aug 022019
 

Fleisher and Ludwig’s 5-Minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult offers comprehensive, practical information on over 800 pediatric emergency issues in a fast-access two-page “5 Minute” outline format for easy emergency department use. The book focuses specifically on pediatric emergency medicine and is utterly distinct from Rosen and Barkin’s 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult, which focuses on adult management, with pediatrics as a distant “second”. This book is also distinct from The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult, which covers primary care issues but does not adequately address emergency concerns and management. Coverage includes clinical presentation, pre-hospital, diagnosis, treatment, disposition, ICD-10 coding, and pitfalls. Treatment recommendations are congruent with those of recognized, authoritative sources including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Emergency Medicine. The book includes pediatric medical, surgical, and environmental/poisoning emergencies, and contains reference information such as vital signs, resuscitation equipment sizes, and medication doses as well as instructions on common pediatric EM procedures.

Emergencies in Neurology: Volume I , 2 Edition

 Emergency, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Emergencies in Neurology: Volume I , 2 Edition
Jul 202019
 

This is the second edition (in two volumes) of a well-received book that reflects current practices in the management of neurological emergencies. It was written bearing in mind the needs of first-contact physicians, who may be neurology trainees, neurology consultants, or interns. Special attention has been paid to various aspects of managing patients at the emergency department, from taking a good clinical history, to completing a quick and focused clinical examination, to investigating and commencing treatment.
Neurological emergencies are unique in that they appear abruptly, generally follow a volatile course, and require a prompt yet balanced response. The management of neurological emergencies has been a major challenge in the past, and today, early and aggressive approaches are generally recommended. Exploring these and other aspects, the book offers a valuable asset for all practitioners seeking answers to the questions that inevitably arise while attempting to manage such critical situations.

Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, Second Edition

 Emergency  Comments Off on Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, Second Edition
Jun 302019
 

Provides a comprehensive examination of emergency management and offers concepts and strategies for creating effective programs

This book looks at the larger context within which emergency management response occurs, and stresses the development of a program to address a wide range of issues. Not limited to traditional emergency response to natural disasters, it addresses a conceptual model capable of integrating multiple disciplines and dealing with unexpected emergencies.

Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, Second Edition starts by focusing on the three pillars on which successful emergency management is based: an understanding of history, knowledge of social science research, and technical expertise in emergency management operations. It provides insight as to how emergency management has evolved and suggests reasons why the current method of response planning doesn’t work as well as it should. The book then goes on to discuss establishing and administering the emergency management program. It looks at the analysis of risk as the basis for strategy development, and considers both the traditional macro view of hazard identification and analysis as well as the micro view required for continuity planning. Strategy development is examined next, followed by coverage of planning process, techniques and methods. The book finishes with chapters on coordinating response, leading in crisis, and crisis management.

Features two new chapters on the development of national response strategy and leadership in a crisis
Incorporates the Principles of Emergency Management adopted by many emergency management professional associations and agencies
Encourages the development of an enterprise wide program to address a wide range of potential threats
Covers the various phases of comprehensive emergency management
Integrates academic research with practical experience and case studies

Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs is an important book that will benefit students, law enforcement, and state and local emergency managers and planners involved in emergency management.
