This book focuses on a unique body of knowledge known as population health management (
PHM). Population health, an approach closely aligned with many public health strategies, enjoys strong general awareness and popularity among health professionals. Although population health books are abundant, a smaller number of population health management texts exist, and these vary considerably depending on the writers’ background, field of expertise, and perspective. It is not easy to bridge concepts from community, public, and global health, and then align them with the essential applications of health management. Combining these interrelated perspectives is the primary goal for the textbook. By melding together fundamental strategies, approaches, and tools from these diverse health-related disciplines, students learn to provide quality care, efficient health services, and produce successful outcomes that are sensitive to the needs of diverse populations. The book is divided into four sections and each section integrates a scaffolding framework that begins with PHMfundamentals and introductions to innovative strategies/tools, moves to problem-based applications, and culminates with integrated skill outcomes. Written by experts in their respective disciplines, each chapter is relatable for students from diverse health related programs such as health management, public health, social work, clinical degrees, and other health professions. As major Population Health Management transformations continue to evolve in the workplace, health management educators recognize the immediate need to design curriculums, introduce new skill-building approaches and tools, and enhance student competencies to meet the challenges and find solutions for a future healthscape that achieves the quadruple aim of access, cost, quality, and patient experience. The book provides students with the knowledge, skills, intentional mind-set to jettison the past in order to transition successfully for today and transform the future of population health management.
A Clinical Guide to Treating Behavioral Addictions:Conceptualizations, Assessments, and Clinical Strategies
The growing prevalence of behavioral addictions makes it clear that the majority of counselors (if not all) will work with clients with addictive behaviors. This book is the culmination of 18 months of investigation into the most current information related to behavioral addictions. In each chapter, the author answers what she thought would be the most meaningful questions for clinical practice: How do I conceptualize it?, How do I identify it?, How do I assess it?, How do I treat it?, and How do I learn more? The books covers eleven behavioral addictions, including: internet gaming addiction, social media addiction, sex addiction, pornography and cybersex addiction, love addiction, gambling addiction, nonsuicidal self-injury, food addiction, exercise addiction, work addiction, and shopping addiction. Although not exhaustive, this list includes many of the most widely accepted behavioral addictions and those that the majority of counselors will encounter in their clinical practice. Along with describing each behavioral addiction in detail, the book also addresses important issues related to the addictive behaviors, such as distinguishing between gaming enthusiasts and those with internet gaming addiction, the association between social media addiction and cyberbullying, ethical considerations when clients disclose viewing illegal pornography, considerations related to adolescent sexting, the relationship between love addiction and codependence, the difference between sex addiction and sexual offending, the effects of legalized sports betting on gambling rates, distinguishing between nonsuicidal self-injury and a suicide attempt, the relationship between shopping addiction and hoarding disorder, the potential impact of neuromarketing, cultural considerations of work and study addiction, and conceptualizing exercise addiction with and without an eating disorder. Additionally, each chapter has a section devoted to the current state of neuroscience related to the behavioral addiction.

The book includes updated learning activities and exercises to enhance understanding.
Many nurses fear the arrival of a child in acute distress or one who requires emergent life-saving care. Children often present for emergency care at settings other than designated pediatric emergency department (
EDs). Safely caring for children requires specialized knowledge and skill which may not be provided to the nurse during orientation or through ongoing education. Historically, limited resources have been available when information was rapidly needed to care for children experiencing an emergency. This book is a concise pocket-sized resource that provides quick access to the nurse working in a variety of settings. This resource is intended for any nurse who cares for pediatric patients in an environment that may require emergency intervention; staff in EDs, urgent care centers, clinics, schools, detention centers, and summer camps, among others, will find value. The book provides nurses, regardless of the setting, with foundation from which to practice. Guidance for how to best incorporate the resource into practice is provided followed by pediatric developmental stages, growth and development, and how to communicate effectively with the child and caregiver. Disease pathology and recognition according to body system are covered in addition to red flag presentations, triage tips, perils and pitfalls of pediatric emergency care, and anatomy and physiology. The book addresses psycho-social considerations (e.g., child maltreatment, human trafficking), behavioral health, trauma, and congenital cardiac anomalies. It covers pediatric procedures and medication administration giving the user a quick reference during those rare situations. The chapter includes a resource number list in addition to quick access to resuscitation medications and blank notes pages to customize the book to meet personal needs. The author hopes that reader uses this guide in their daily practice, adding essential need-to-know content as new insights arise, and that soon one will own a guide that is customized just for them.
Botulinum toxin (
BoNT) therapy involves as much art as it does science. Prescription and injection of a BoNTproduct requires that clinicians be familiar with the unique properties of each product, including its dosage range for a seemingly ever-expanding list of approved or published medical indications. This quick reference guide provides detailed dosage information for the four BoNTproducts available in the USA(abobotulinumtoxinA, incobotulinumtoxinA, onabotulinumtoxinA, and rimabotulinumtoxinB) which are approved for both cosmetic and medical indications. Included in this abbreviated manual are updated regulatory agency approved medical indications for both adults and children and recommended dosage ranges in the USA(Food and Drug Administration), Canada (Health Canada), the United Kingdom (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), and the European Union (European Medicines Agency). Detailed BoNTdosage information for each of these BoNTproducts is presented in an easy-to-navigate table format. The tables are organized by clinical indication along with each agency-approved dosage where available and the published dosage ranges per treatment session and per structure injected. Providing this information in a single reference manual allows clinicians to quickly calculate the dosage of a given BoNTproduct for a given indication and/or structure. The anatomical illustrations provided in this manual serve as a reference guide for clinicians to enhance the localization of muscles and other target structures during the injection planning process. The authors hope this information will be useful for clinicians and for the patients to whom they provide care.
The third edition of this book is for primary care providers and any providers who encounter electrocardiograms (
EKG) in their practices. It takes a clinical focus for the interpretation of EKGs, enhancing the understanding of complex conditions while providing a logical, practical application. It discusses and explains the pathophysiology of the conditions, which facilitates understanding rather than memorization. Throughout the book is useful clinical information that can be immediately applied to practice, as well as case studies with 12-lead EKGstrips, which help to refine the reader’s EKGinterpretation skills. This third edition is exceptional, with the inclusion of helpful tables that summarize complex information and useful illustrations to aid in visualization. Each end-of-chapter quiz features review questions designed to reinforce and enhance the learning objectives. The culmination of each chapter quizzes the reader’s mind and intuition with review questions to reinforce the learning objectives. The book delivers a compilation of narrative, diagrams, tables, actual patient EKGs, and case studies, which provides a complete yet succinct learning experience for the student and clinician. Providers are instrumental in identifying abnormalities on EKGsfor further evaluation and treatment leading to life-saving measures. As the population ages, the incidence of abnormalities expressed on an EKGgrows significantly, which poses a challenge to providers. Whether one is a nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or physician, the book is concise, to the point, and an absolute asset to one’s practice. It is an indispensable resource regardless of the experience level and whether one is learning for the first time or extending their knowledge and experience in the interpretation of an EKG.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (
EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic approach. However, without the proper training and consultation, an untrained clinician (and this includes very experienced clinicians) could put their clients at risk. This Primer’s goal is to target those clinicians who have completed the EMDRtherapy two-part basic training, 10 hours of supervised consultation, and have read Dr. Shapiro’s basic text (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 3rd ed.) and Getting Past Your Past, but still want additional information on using it skillfully. The Primer will encourage and raise the confidence levels of those trained but wanting to increase their ability to use EMDRtherapy with consistent success. The primary intention of the Primer is to supplement Dr. Shapiro’s explanation of EMDRtherapy. It is not meant to be a substitute for her training or previous writings. The reader is urged to read and study them all. The book adds case histories and extensive examples of successful EMDRreprocessing sessions. The cases represent composite or conglomerate portraits of the many clients with whom the author has utilized EMDRtherapy over the past 20 years. The text is a Primer and presents the writing, examples, and illustrations in a less formal and more personal manner. The Primer has been written from a practical, learning-focused approach so that the clinicians who read it can become more familiar with the principles, protocols, and procedures of EMDRtherapy. An attempt is made to take the clinician through complete and incomplete EMDRtherapy sessions, explaining treatment rationale at given points. The book offers a Primer that can facilitate the process of mental health professionals becoming more confident and experienced clinicians in EMDRtherapy. The process has been simplified as much as possible with diagrams, tables, and other illustrations.
