Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

If you see patients in an urgent care center, minor injury unit or other acute care setting, this new clinically-focused guide will help you avoid high-risk pitfalls and achieve optimal outcomes.

This must-have resource covers a wide range of emergencies that may be encountered in an urgent care setting, focusing on those that can occur with the most commonly-encountered complaints and conditions, including:

• Genitourinary complaints

• Common infections

• Orthopedic injuries

• Wounds

• Back pain

• Dermatologic complaints

The book also includes chapters on common pitfalls during the HEENT examination, effective patient communications, urgent care pharmacology pitfalls, special issues in the care of pediatric and geriatric patients, and more. Each chapter is authored by an experienced acute care clinician and includes clinical pearls that you can apply directly to the care of your own patients.

The urgent care center can be a challenging and fast-paced environment, and pitfalls, especially those encountered during emergencies, can have serious consequences for patients’ immediate well-being, their recovery time, and possibly their long-term prognosis. More than ever, you need a resource you can trust that has been tailored specifically to the needs of providers in the low-acuity setting.

Emergency Urology

 Emergency, Urology  Comments Off on Emergency Urology
Jun 132018
 

Urology is a speciality that notoriously receives little attention in medical school, yet it makes up a sizeable portion of the workload in emergency departments and also in primary care. Urological emergencies can often be managed simply but require the appropriate knowledge and skills. Emergency urology is often covered very superficially alongside general surgery or in excessive detail within voluminous urology textbooks. This book is different: it will consist of concise, well-structured chapters, with an accessible and easily digestible style. The content will be clinically-based and will include a number of clinical photographs and radiological investigations. This book will appeal to all doctors, including those rotating through surgical and emergency medicine specialities, and those clinicians approaching professional examinations worldwide. Medial students on urology or emergency medicine placements, who are studying for their exams will also find it invaluable. In addition, primary care doctors, speciality nurses in urology and nurses in emergency department may also appreciate the clinically relevant content of the book. The authors are all dedicated to education and teaching, and have published extensively. In addition, they run a successful emergency urology course in Cambridge, popular with clinicians and senior students alike

Ambulance Services: Leadership and Management Perspectives

 Emergency  Comments Off on Ambulance Services: Leadership and Management Perspectives
May 312018
 

This volume provides fresh insights and management understanding of the changing role of the ambulance services against the backdrop of massive cuts in health budgets around the world and the changing context of pre-hospital care within the wider healthcare networks. The challenges of funding, training and cultural transformation are now felt globally. The need to learn and adapt from suitable models of ambulance service delivery have never been greater. The book offers critical insights into the theory and practice of strategic and operational management of ambulance services and the leadership needs for the service. One of the highlight of this volume is to bring together scholarship using experts- academics, practitioners and professionals in the field, to each of the chosen topics. The chapters are based in the practical experiences of the authors and are written in a way that is accessible and suitable for a range of audiences. We are confident that this book will cater to a wider audience to inform policy and practice, both in the UK and internationally.

Endorsements
“This unique and valuable publication, charts the history and development of the ambulance service in England over the last hundred years or so. The role of this key emergency service has always been important, and arguably never more so than today. The contributing authors have not only provided the reader with great insights into where the service has come from and the leadership challenges it has, and continues to face; it also gives examples of how the future could look as our journey of transformation continues.”
Peter Bradley CBE, MBA (and author of Taking Healthcare to the Patient 2005), Chief Executive Officer. St John National Headquarters, New Zealand
“With a year on year increase in demand for emergency ambulances and over 9 million calls annually, the UK Ambulance Service must change from its emergency care and transport focus model. With the increase in professionalism of paramedics and an uplift in assessment and clinical skills the modern paramedic is increasingly able to treat at home, direct patients with alternative care pathways and avoid transportation to overburdened Emergency Departments. Whilst there is some historical and cultural resistance to change there is a need for further development in clinical skills and a new perspective for the future Ambulance Service. This book brings together practitioners, managers, academics and provides a broad understanding of the major management issues in the UK Ambulance Service. It includes the history of the Ambulance Service, quality and risk management issues, commissioning, leadership, intra-operability and shape of the future ambulance service. The content will be of interest to students, practitioners and academics”.
Sir Keith Porter, Professor of Clinical Traumatology, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom
