Pilot Mental Health Assessment and Support

Genre: FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS

The presentation of mental illness at work has different implications and consequences depending on the specific nature of the job, work context, regulatory framework and risks for the employee, organisation and society. Naturally there are certain occupational groups where human factors and/or mental illness could impair safety and mental acuity, and with potentially devastating consequences. For pilots, the medical criteria for crew licensing are stipulated by regulatory aviation authorities worldwide, and these include specific mental illness exclusions. The challenge of assessment for mental health problems is, however, complex and the responsibility for psychological screening and testing falls to a range of different specialists and groups including AMEs (authorised aviation medical examiners), GPs and physicians, airline human resources departments, psychologists, human factor specialists and pilots themselves. Extending and developing the ideas of Aviation Mental Health (2006), which described a range of psychological issues and problems that may affect pilots and the consequences of these, this book presents an authoritative, comprehensive and practical guide to modern, evidence-based practice in the field of mental health assessment, treatment and care. It features contributions from experts in the field drawn from several countries, professions and representing a range of aviation-related organisations, displaying a range of different skills and methods that can be used for the clinical assessment of pilots and in relation to specific mental-health problems and syndromes.

It is also recommended reading for those with a wider interest in the medical problems of professional or recreational flying, air transport and the aviation industry.

Die fabelhafte Welt der Leichen

Author: Mary Roach
Publisher: Riva Verlag
ISBN: 9783864132285
Release Date: 2012-07-06
Genre: Political Science

Mit dem Tod ist keinesfalls alles vorbei. Leichen sind auf vielfältige Weise nützlich, indem sie Forschung und Wissenschaft zur Verfügung stehen. Sie helfen dabei, Autos sicherer zu machen, dienen als Anschauungs- und Übungsobjekte für angehende Ärzte und geben Gerichtsmedizinern wichtige Hinweise, mit denen Verbrechen aufgeklärt werden können. Sie wurden ins All geschossen, haben die ersten Guillotinen und sogar die Echtheit des Turiner Grabtuchs getestet. Mary Roach hat die vielfältigen postmortalen Verwendungsformen recherchiert und mit Ärzten, Wissenschaftlern und Leichenbestattern darüber gesprochen, was man mit Leichen alles anfangen kann. Daraus ist ein überaus unterhaltsames, faszinierendes und skurriles Buch entstanden, auch wenn die Hauptakteure in Anatomiesälen, Laboratorien und Krematorien zu finden sind.
