Beraten Informieren und Schulen in der Pflege

Author: Tanja Segmüller
Publisher: Mabuse-Verlag
ISBN: 9783863212698
Release Date: 2016-06-28
Genre: Medical

Zur Bewältigung einer Erkrankung sind Austausch und Weitergabe von gesundheitsbezogenem Wissen an PatientInnen und Angehörige essenziell. Pflegende haben den engsten Kontakt zu den Kranken – eine bessere Gesprächskultur würde die Versorgungsqualität enorm erhöhen. Stattdessen finden Gespräche zwischen Pflegenden und PatientInnen kaum noch statt. Dieses Buch setzt dieser Entwicklung etwas entgegen: Es stellt Konzepte zur Verbesserung der pflegerischen Interaktionsarbeit vor, die in den letzten Jahren im Umfeld des Netzwerks Patienten- und Familienedukation in der Pflege e.V. und am Department Pflegewissenschaft der Universität Witten/Herdecke entwickelt wurden. Anhand kurzer Fallbeispiele wird die gesamte Bandbreite an Problemen in der Folge einer Krankheit oder einer Pflegebedürftigkeit veranschaulicht.

Release Date: 2013-03-05
Genre: Medical

Pflegeoasen sind Mehrpersonenräume zur Versorgung von Menschen mit schwerer Demenz in der Langzeitpflege. Die Einschätzungen zu diesem neuen Versorgungskonzept sind geteilt. Die einen halten es für eine kostensparende Gruppenversorgung alter und schwer pflegebedürftiger Menschen, die anderen sehen darin eine innovative und bedürfnisgerechte Versorgungsform. Eine sachliche, auf wissenschaftlichern Ergebnissen aufbauende Diskussion, ist erforderlich. Dieses Buch liefert einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Versachlichung der Diskussion und nähert sich der Thematik aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven - u.a. Soziologie, Ethik, Medizin - an. Dabei bietet es Fakten statt Meinungen!

Release Date: 2003
Genre: Medical

I am most excited and impressed with the scope and focus of this work. As I began to read it, I had trouble putting it down. It is highly readable, engaging, all-inclusive, and most informative. Jean Watson, RN, PhD, HNC, FAAN I am honored and delighted to recommend this text for all nurses who cared for and care about patients. from the Foreword by May Wykle, RN, PhD, FAAN This book places comfort at the forefront of nursing care, by presenting a carefully researched theory of comfort that nurses can use as a framework for practice. Engagingly written, the book combines a first-person account of the development of the theory with supporting research, and practical information for its application. Kolcaba analyzes the concept of comfort; describes its physical, psychospiritual, environmental and sociocultural components; evaluates its meaning in the many different contexts in which health care occurs; and describes how it can be measured. The appendix includes comfort care questionnaires that can be used with patients in many settings, and a comfort scale that can be used with patients for a quick assessment of comfort. Clinicians, researchers, educators, and students will find this holistic approach helpful in setting priorities and parameters for patient care.

Lebensqualit t im Alter

Author: Michael Coors
Publisher: Kohlhammer Verlag
ISBN: 9783170271609
Release Date: 2013-11-07
Genre: Religion

In den ethischen Diskursen über das gelingende Alter(n) rücken Fragen nach dem guten Leben und einer entsprechenden Lebensqualität ins Zentrum des Interesses. Die interdisziplinäre gerontologische Forschung untersucht, wie in gesellschaftlichen Kommunikationsprozessen sowohl breit akzeptierte als auch kontrovers diskutierte Leitbilder und Bewertungen des Lebens im Alter entstehen. Diese Vorstellungen von Lebensqualität im Alter haben jedoch auch Einfluss auf die Bearbeitung ethischer Konflikte in Medizin und Pflege. Deshalb bezieht dieser Band die gerontologischen und medizinethischen Fragestellungen aufeinander und vertieft diese Verschränkung exemplarisch am Beispiel des Umgangs mit Demenz.

Meister Eckhart s Book of the Heart

Author: Jon M. Sweeney
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
ISBN: 9781571747648
Release Date: 2017-01-01
Genre: Christian poetry, American

Meister Eckhart (1260 -1328) was a priest, a mystic, and nearly a heretic (he died before the Church court's verdict). In the 20th century, the Roman Catholic Church rehabilitated him and the late Pope John Paul II spoke of his work with fondness. However, what makes him of particular interest is the fact that he has influenced a wide range of spiritual teachers and mystics both inside and outside the Christian tradition. Erich Fromm, Eckhart Tolle, Richard Rohr, D. T. Suzuki, and Rudolf Steiner have all credited Eckhart as being an important influence on their thought. In addition, his work has influenced the development of 20th century American Buddhism and the Theosophical tradition. Eckhart wrote at a time - much like our own - when society appeared to be coming apart at the seams. In the midst of all that chaos and uncertainty, he captured the many forms and stages of the love of God, the mystic path, and the journey of transformation - in language so startling that he, too, was often accused of heresy. Now, seven centuries later, this fresh, stunning rendering of his work translates the essence of one of Christianity's greatest poetic and spiritual voices. Here is a book that conveys the heart of Eckhart's teaching on what it means to love God and embark on an authentic spiritual journey - a journey that is characterized by mystery, paradox, and an embrace of the unknown.

The photomontages of Hannah H ch

Author: Hannah Höch
Publisher:
ISBN: 0935640525
Release Date: 1996
Genre: Art

A pioneer in the medium of photomontage, Hannah Hoch (1889-1978) was the sole female member of the Berlin Dada movement and continued to produce innovative works well into the 1970s. In the decade and a half since her death, a new generation of scholars has focused its attention on her elegant dissection of the representation of women in the mass media during the Weimar era. Here, in the first comprehensive survey of her work by an American museum, authors Peter Boswell, Maria Makela, and Carolyn Lanchner survey the full scope of Hoch's half-century of experimentation in photomontage - from her politically charged early works and intimate psychological portraits of the Weimar era to her later forays into surrealism and abstraction. This beautifully designed catalogue presents more than l00 color plates and offers new insights into the life and career of this extraordinary artist.
