Hanf als Heilmittel

Author: Christian Rätsch
Publisher: Nachtschatten Verlag
ISBN: 9783037885116
Release Date: 2016-08-31
Genre: Health & Fitness

Seit mindestens 6000 Jahren wird Hanf als Faserlieferant, als Nahrung und Genussmittel kulturell genutzt, aber auch seine vielseitigen medizinischen Qualitäten wurden früh entdeckt. Er hatte seinen festen Platz in der pharaonischen, der assyrischen, der antiken, der islamischen und der mittelalterlichen Medizin. In der chinesischen und tibetischen Medizin werden seine euphorisierenden, antidepressiven Eigenschaften geschätzt, im Ayurveda wird er als Allheilmittel und Aphrodisiakum gepriesen. Doch auch unsere germanisch-keltischen Ahnen haben die Pflanze medizinisch genutzt. Hildegard von Bingen gebrauchte sie genauso wie Samuel Hahnemann, der Begründer der Homöopathie. In der modernen medizinischen und pharmakologischen Forschung werden nun die früheren und die ethnobotanischen Anwendungen der Hanfpflanze getestet und grösstenteils bestätigt. Dieses Buch zeichnet die Geschichte und die Bedeutung des Hanfs in den verschiedenen medizinischen Systemen und Lehren nach und gibt eine Fülle von praktischen Anwendungen und Rezepten. Mit einem Vorwort von Dr. med. Franjo Grotenhermen.

Integrating Evidence into Practice for Impact An Issue of Nursing Clinics of North America

Author: Debra Mark
Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
ISBN: 9780323323345
Release Date: 2014-07-31
Genre: Medical

This issue begins with an overview that distinguishes evidence-based practice (EBP) and translation science, followed by a description of Hawaii’s statewide EBP program that uses active and multifaceted translation science strategies to facilitate the rate and extent of adoption of EBP changes. With one exception, the remaining articles describe individual EBP projects from five different health care facilities that used the Iowa Model to guide their work. Each article includes an evidence summary, a description of implementation strategies, an evaluation of the innovation, and lessons learned. These completed projects were initiated between 2009 and 2012, address a variety of topical nursing issues, and, for the most part, focus on preventing complications (ie, blood sugar elevations, increased lengths of stay, extubation failures, noise-related injury, pain, surgical site infections, pneumonia, restraint use, delirium, and fever). An additional article describes the use of evidence to inform simulation-based learning, a possible strategy for ensuring competencies in and compliance with EBP interventions. Nursing leaders will come away with solid information about utilizing EBP to improve patient outcomes. The Hawaii program demonstrates that health care quality can be realized by employing the best available evidence and empowering the nursing workforce. It also offers a glimpse of the care that the future nursing workforce could provide to create a health system that provides accessible, affordable and quality care to everyone in the United States.
