 Surgery  Comments Off on Retroperitoneal Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery: The Extraperitoneal Approach
Feb 292020
 

Retroperitoneal Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery provides urologists with an easy way to learn the extraperitoneal alternative when performing laparoscopic or robot assisted procedures. There are significant technical differences between intra-peritoneal and retroperitoneal surgery. There are occasions, particularly with a history of prior intra-abdominal surgeries, when the retroperitoneal route is not only less invasive, but provides an efficient and effective way of performing the operation.
Retroperitoneal Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery is a step-by-step guide of all extraperitoneal laparoscopic and robot assisted procedures. This book will support beginners in making the transition from open extraperitoneal to laparoscopic or robotic extraperitoneal procedures. It is also a valuable reference tool to further assist the intermediate and advanced laparoscopist to expand their skills working in the extraperitoneal space.

The Patient’s Brain: The neuroscience behind the doctor-patient relationship

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Patient’s Brain: The neuroscience behind the doctor-patient relationship
Feb 272020
 

There is a vast literature on what has often been called the doctor-patient relationship, patient-provider interaction, therapist-patient encounter, and such like. However, it is thanks to recent advances within neuroscience, that we now find ourselves in a much better position to be able to describe and discuss the biological mechanisms that underlie the doctor-patient relationship. For example, we now know that different physiological and biochemical mechanisms
take part in complex functions, like trust, hope, empathy and compassion, which are all key elements in the therapist-patient encounter. With this neuroscientific knowledge in their hands, health professionals will soon be able to directly see how their words, attitudes, and behaviours activate and
inactivate molecules, cortical areas, and sensory systems in the brains of their patients.

This revolutionary new book describes and explains how this new scientific knowledge can be put to great practical use. It shows how, from a neuroscientific perspective, the doctor-patient relationship can be subdivided into at least four steps: feeling sick, seeking relief, meeting the therapist, and receiving therapy. The main advantage to approaching the doctor-patient relationship from a neuroscientific perspective is that physicians, psychologists and health professionals can better
understand what kind of changes they can induce in their patients’ brains, further boosting the professional’s empathic and compassionate behaviour.

Written by the author of the critically acclaimed ‘Placebo Effects’, this book will lead to a better awareness of the potential power that the doctor’s behaviour may have on the patient’s behaviour and capacity for recovery from illness, as well as to better medical practice and social/communication skills. It will be required reading for physicians, psychotherapists, and neuroscientists.

Professional Practice for Podiatric Medicine

 Orthopedics  Comments Off on Professional Practice for Podiatric Medicine
Feb 272020
 

Professional practice for podiatric practitioners is not a new phenomenon; it has dominated the focus of educational discussion and debate on how best the scope and parameters of podiatric medicine can be developed for the majority of two decades. Much has focused on how traditional academic theoretical perspectives on professionalism can be translated into applied clinical practice at the front line of patient assessment, diagnosis and management. Written by a selection of dedicated practitioners and educators from the field of healthcare generally and podiatric medicine specifically, the overall aims of this book are to:
• raise an awareness of professional practice for podiatric practitioners through an engagement with the core clinical, intellectual and analytical skills required for healthcare generally and podiatric practice specifically;
• provide a resource for members of the podiatric practitioner community, which addresses the fundamental contributory factors of professional practice in key areas such as professional identity, clinical professional practice, management and leadership alongside education and continuing professional development;
• develop an approach which enhances the healthcare practitioner’s ability to engage with and build capacity between professions in an inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach to high quality healthcare provision.
