Crisis And Chaos

Jerome M. Adams Simon and Schuster

Hard truths and surprising insights about our COVID-19 response from America’s former top doctor. When COVID-19 began spreading rapidly, the world was taken by surprise. As the ensuing pandemic raged, we faced one constant—a lack of consistent, scientifically sound, and trusted information about dangers, risks, and mitigation strategies that the average person could understand and put into practice to keep themselves and their families safe. Politicians, opportunists, and agenda-driven media personalities spread misinformation for an array of purposes, leaving most of the public scratching their heads, wondering what was true and what wasn’t. Now, the former Surgeon General of the United States—freed from the many constraints he worked under in public office—reveals critical lessons learned from both mistakes and successes overlooked during the pandemic. He explains what we need to know to create a safer environment for individuals, families, and communities, how we can respond better to the next threat, why we keep making the same mistakes, and why we must promote health equity for all. As Dr. Adams explains, the best public health policies are the ones that begin at home and come about as people in local communities work together to find solutions that fit their specific priorities and needs. Only through this bottom-up, community-driven approach will we be able to turn down the volume on the distracting noise, finally make our way out of and recover from a once-in-a-century pandemic, and prepare ourselves for inevitable future health crises.

Suzanne Waddill-Goad Sigma Theta Tau

“This book came at the perfect time… The information is very helpful, and it’s just nice to know so many others have similar challenges.” Trenda Ray, PhD, RN, NEA-BC Chief Nursing Officer Associate Vice Chancellor for Patient Care Services Clinical Assistant Professor, UAMS College of Nursing “Another edition of renewable energy reminding us to be our best! This book takes us on a journey through stress, burnout, and post-traumatic stress and sparks innovative solutions.” Kristin Christophersen, DNP, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, CENP, CPHQ, CLSSGB, FACHE Healthcare Executive and Owner, VitalNow LLC “Beyond Burnout is timely, relevant, and critical to understanding the stressors that plague healthcare today.” Cindi M. Warburton, DNP, FNP Executive Director, Northwest Organization of Nurse Leaders Healthcare professions typically attract those who give deeply of themselves to make a positive difference in others’ lives. But that giving can come at a significant price: burnout. While the healthcare vocation offers myriad options in work settings and career paths, it can also involve tremendous amounts of stress because of long shifts, mental and physical exhaustion, patient challenges, and regulatory changes. When stress and fatigue overtake a healthcare provider’s ability to adequately cope with physically and emotionally taxing circumstances, burnout is often the result, potentially leading to compromises in quality and patient safety. Since the publication of the first edition of this book, the COVID-19 pandemic has only added dramatically to nurses’ and other healthcare providers’ stress, exacerbating existing problems with strained resources and labor shortages. In Beyond Burnout, Second Edition, author Suzanne Waddill-Goad adds new strategies and up-to-date, data-driven information for building hardiness and resilience so that nurses and other healthcare workers can successfully navigate their increasingly challenging environment while reducing stress and preventing burnout.

Kriegspropaganda Und Medienmanipulation

Christian Hardinghaus Europa Verlag

"Das erste Opfer des Krieges ist die Wahrheit" Diese Erkenntnis aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg ist bis heute gültig, denn immer wieder haben seither Kriegsanlasslügen zu militärischen Konflikten geführt. Zielgruppenspezifisch ausgearbeitete Propaganda sorgt stets dafür, dass sie während der Dauer eines Krieges gar nicht erst erkannt werden. Während früher den Menschen Information vorenthalten wurde, ist es heute paradoxerweise das massive Überangebot, das ihnen die Wahrheitsfindung erschwert, wie sich nach dem Angriff Russlands auf die Ukraine wieder deutlich zeigt. Diesen Umstand nutzen Machthaber beteiligter Kriegsparteien gekonnt aus, um nicht nur die eigene Bevölkerung und die des Gegners zu manipulieren, sondern die gesamte Weltbevölkerung auf ihre Seite zu ziehen. Den Anforderungen zur Aufklärung von Massenmanipulation innerhalb moderner Informationskriege scheinen Medien neutraler Staaten nicht gewachsen zu sein, die je nach eigener politischer Agenda Propagandainhalte übernehmen oder nicht entlarven. Christian Hardinghaus klärt umfassend über die immer gleichen Strategien und Prinzipien medialer Manipulation in der Berichterstattung vergangener und heutiger Kriege auf und zeigt, dass die entsprechenden Propagandamethoden auch in Friedenszeiten zum Alltagsgeschäft von Politikern gehören. Dank der präzisen Erläuterung von über 75 gängigen Manipulationsmethoden soll es Ihnen gelingen, Propaganda selbst aufzudecken.

S3 Leitlinie Nationale Versorgungsleitlinie Unipolare Depression

Frank Schneider Springer-Verlag

Die Leitlinien zur Unipolaren Depression beruhen auf empirischer Evidenz und Expertenkonsens und stellen damit einen Handlungsrahmen für Ärztinnen und Ärzte dar, um Diagnostik und Therapie nach den Regeln der Kunst zu gestalten. Auf der einen Seite sollen sie Ärztinnen und Ärzte nicht binden, auf der anderen Seite drücken Leitlinien aber doch eine gewisse Verbindlichkeit aus. Zu den Aufgaben der medizinisch-wissenschaftlichen Fachgesellschaften gehört es nicht nur Leitlinien zu entwickeln, sondern auch ihren Praxistransfer zu gewährleisten.
