Legal And Ethical Issues For Health Professionals

George D. Pozgar Jones & Bartlett Learning

Legal and Ethical Issues for Health Professionals, 6th Edition, has been designed to assist the reader in a more comfortable transition from the didactics of the classroom to the practical application in the workplace. The 6th Edition provides the reader with a clearer understanding of how the law and ethics are intertwined as they relate to health care dilemmas. The 6th Edition, as with previous editions, has been designed to introduce the reader to various ethical-legal issues and should not be considered an in-depth or comprehensive review of a particular ethical-legal issue. The book is a call to arms to do good things, to stand out from the crowd, because acts of caring, compassion, and kindness often go unnoticed.

Policy Practice For Social Workers

Linda K Cummins Taylor & Francis

The second edition of Policy Practice for Social Workers expands the concept of policy practice in social work settings and illustrates how significant policy change may be achieved at a local, community, state, and national level. Guided by an ethic of care approach, this textbook is intended to raise readers’ awareness about policy practice and its fundamental relationship with the aims of the social work profession, offers a foundation for key skill development, and contextualizes the work of policy practitioners in the larger political-economic settings in which they work. This textbook is divided into two parts. First, readers will expand their understanding of policy practice, its beginnings and development over the course of social welfare history, and the political, economic, and social drivers that affect policy decisions and undergird the U.S. political system. Readers will also learn about the ethic of care framework and the value-based lens it contributes to the policymaking process. Later, in the book’s second part, readers will explore the essential skills and values in policy work. Detailed coverage and vivid examples offer valuable insight into specific advocacy skills including lobbying, community organizing, mobilizing advocacy publics, coalition building, campaigning, problem analysis, policy analysis, and policy evaluation. Within its comprehensive overview of policy practice and advocacy, the new edition of this text extols a value-laden perspective to identify and assess unmet needs and promote a more socially just environment for all. Combining these dual aims, Policy Practice for Social Workers is an excellent cornerstone of policy and policy work for undergraduate and graduate students in social work.

Praxisbasiertes Technologiedesign F R Die Alternde Gesellschaft

Claudia Müller BoD – Books on Demand

Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien diffundieren immer stärker in alltägliche Lebensumgebungen. Fragestellungen danach, wie neue Technologien eine eigenständige Lebensführung und die Ermöglichung sozialer Teilhabe an der Gesellschaft bis ins hohe Alter zu unterstützen vermögen, sind leitend für viele IT-Projekte im Feld Ambient Assisted Living. Die Gestaltung von IT-Artefakten für Anwendungsfelder, die bisher nur in geringem Maße technisch unterstützt werden, stellt allerdings eine erhebliche methodische Herausforderung für die angewandte Informatik dar. Dies gilt insbesondere für IT Entwicklungen für die alternde Gesellschaft, wenn sich Lebensbedingungen von älteren Menschen verändern und keine oder wenig Erfahrung mit neuen Medien vorliegt. So erschwert die hohe Heterogenität der Zielgruppe 60+ mit höchst diversen Interessen, (IT-)Kompetenzen und Lebenskonzepten feingranulare und praxistaugliche Anforderungsformulierungen. Der zu unterstützende Lebensalltag ist nämlich oft widersprüchlich, diffus und von Ängsten, Sorgen und Wünschen getragen, die häufig nicht unmittelbar artikulierbar und damit im Rahmen einer strukturierten Anforderungserhebung identifizierbar sind. Dennoch benötigen Entwickler konkrete Anforderungen in der Produktgestaltung. Damit neue Technologien einen sinnstiftenden Sitz im Lebensalltag älterer Menschen finden können, bedarf es daher neuartiger Gestaltungstechniken, die nah an den Lebenspraktiken der jeweiligen Zielgruppen ansetzen und gleichzeitig Operationalisierungen für konkrete Designschritte erarbeiten. Die vorliegende Arbeit, die an der Schnittstelle zwischen Sozialwissenschaft und Wirtschaftsinformatik positioniert ist, erarbeitet anhand von drei Designfallstudien den Vorschlag, die Gestaltung anwendungsbezogener IT-Systeme mit sozialwissenschaftlicher Fundierung und gestaltungswissenschaftlicher Theoriebildung zu verbinden.
