Press Release | Ethic of Canadian Nursing Practice

 

ethics of care

 

BENTHAM SCIENCE PUBLISHERS

There is an increased use of technology and informatics, heavier workloads and constant changes in the way in which disease processes are managed. Yet, when compared with other health professionals, nurses still spend a great deal of time in direct contact with patients and clients

The Ethic of Care: A Moral Compass for Canadian Nursing Practice motivates the nurses in achieving accountability and sustainability in healthcare systems around Canada with great emphasis to overcome social biases. Encourages in the development of skills and compassion in order to leave the patient with better impression. Nurses should be the ethical leaders at client, community as well as global level.

This book is unique from other nursing ethics textbooks in several key ways. The book adds a heightened dimension to the already rich knowledge in the field of applied nursing ethics and the ethic of care. The author argues that the ethic of care, or the moral imperative to act justly, be the guiding compass for everything that nurses do. It is with passion and conviction that nurses are encouraged to embody the ethic of care as a “lived virtue.” Nurses are also inspired to be the leaders of tomorrow by working toward achieving accountability and sustainability in the Canadian publicly funded health care system and by effectively addressing social inequities. At the end of each chapter the author conveys real life case studies, as derived from her experiences as a critical care nurse, psychiatric nurse clinician and former Coroner. These vignettes bring the subject to life and serve as a means for applying newly acquired ethical knowledge. The aim of this book is to inspire nurses to be as skillful, and compassionate as they can be so that they will leave every encounter with their clients, better than when they first arrived. The book attempts to inspire nurses to be ethical leaders for social change at the patient/client, community and global level. This revised edition of the book includes additional information about trauma-informed care to combat systemic racism and improve the health outcomes for Indigenous people; ethics, gender and sexual orientation is dealt with in an inclusive and sensitive way, and a new Code of Conduct has been included.

Current Perspectives on Anti-Infective Agents

Book Series: Frontiers in Anti-Infective Agents

Volume 1

BY

K. TAMREIHAO, SAIKAT MUKHERJEE, DEBANANDA S. NINGTHOUJAM

 

Current Perspectives on Anti-Infective Agents

The volume is a comprehensive documentation on major infectious diseases from tropical countries which pose a serious threat to global healthcare programs. These include diseases such as tuberculosis, AIDS, leishmaniasis (kala-azar), elephantiasis, malaria, leprosy, various fungal disorders, and emergent viral diseases. Due to the widespread use of antibiotics, there is an emergence of drug-resistant pathogens in many regions. Hence, there is a need to search for novel, cost-effective bioactive compounds that demonstrate high efficacy and low toxicity in human cells from unexplored ecosystems to combat emerging drug-resistant pathogens. Chapters of this volume focus on the pathogenesis and etiology of each of the mentioned diseases, updated WHO reports wherever applicable, conventional drugs and their pharmacokinetics as well as new approaches to develop anti-infective agents.

The authors also present a detailed report on ‘superbugs’ (multi-drug resistant pathogens) and new measures being taken up to eradicate them. Information about new antimicrobials (bioactive peptides and silk protein sericin) and the approaches taken by scientists and healthcare professionals for successful targeting of these molecules for human medicine. This volume is essential for general readers, healthcare professionals, researchers, and academicians actively involved in research on infectious diseases and anti-infective therapeutic drugs.

New eBook Announcement | Cutting Edge Techniques in Biophysics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology: From Principle to Applications

Biomedical research is gaining prime attention as it is directly affecting human health. Biophysical, biochemical and cellular techniques are the backbone of biomedical sciences; a pre-requisite towards the understanding and treatment of human diseases. In the recent years, biomedical research has provided solutions for several problems faced by human beings. It is an integrated approach that includes various disciplines viz. biochemistry, microbiology, genetics and biochemical engineering. After some time, it has been integrated rapidly with new branches of science like molecular and cellular biology, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and nanotechnology. Biomedical research involves fundamental scientific principles applied to preclinical understanding of problems to clinical solutions. This book titled ‘Cutting Edge Techniques in Biophysics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology: From Principle to Applications’, presents a broad overview regarding the basic applications of sophisticated and analytical techniques used in biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology. This book has covers the following areas: in vitro cell culture assay, real-time PCR, flow cytometry, and X-ray crystallography, discussed by authors who have quality publications in their proposed chapter area. Additionally each chapter includes application of techniques in specific areas like cells sorting by FACS, disease diagnosis by Real-time PCR, disease modeling under in vitro culture and many more. This will help students understand the importance of techniques in biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology research which will set a benchmark for further research.

As a biotechnology scientist, I am happy to recommend this book to the students of universities, both as a text and reference book. The section on technique will be used as textbook and the application section as reference. This book has been written in a way so that it is student-friendly with clean diagrams and protocols of specific techniques. I sincerely believe that the book has been prepared with the scientific skills and will serve as a useful document for the graduate and undergraduate students. Read out the full version here
