Auch im Gesundheitssystem wird mehr und mehr ökonomisiert und es scheint, dass weniger der Patient mit seinem Leiden im Fokus des Betrachters steht als die Zahlen. Dieses Buch bildet dazu ein Gegengewicht und betont die Rückbesinnung auf den Patienten als ganzheitlichen Menschen, dem neben medizinischer und pflegerischer Fachkompetenz auch mit spiritueller Begleitung Linderung verschafft werden kann. Der Leidende mit seinen Ängsten, Hoffnungen und seiner Zuversicht und der Helfende mit seinem fachlichen Know-how und seinem menschlichen Handeln stehen im Blickfeld aller Beiträge. Sie geben Einblick in die unterschiedlichen Perspektiven der Disziplinen und versuchen herauszufinden, wie unter den gegebenen Umständen eine menschliche und allumfassende Versorgung von Kranken – im Sinne des Betroffenen – realisiert werden kann. Ausgehend vom biblischen Bild des guten Samariters, befassen sich die Autoren mit der Suche nach Antworten, wie einem Kranken unter den realen Gegebenheiten unseres Versorgungssystems bestmögliche Hilfe gewährt werden kann: Wie kann angesichts von Krankheit und Leid die interdisziplinäre Aufgabe des Heilens und Helfens gelingen? Welche Bedeutung haben religiöser Glaube und persönliche Spiritualität im Heilungsgeschehen? Ist eine derart umfassende Sorge ökonomisch-organisatorisch finanzier- und vertretbar? Für Pflegende, Ärzte, Soziale Dienste und Wissenschaftler der Fachgebiete. Aber auch interessierte Psychologen, Sozialarbeiter und Mitarbeiter im Krankenpastoral, für die Spiritualität ein Baustein in der Begleitung Kranker ist, finden hier Impulse für ihre Arbeit. „SALVIFICI DOLORIS - Dem Gutes tun, der leidet“ – unter diesem Motto trafen sich im Frühjahr 2013 auf der internationalen Tagung zum Welttag der Kranken Wissenschaftler und Praktiker aus den Professionen der Pflege, Medizin, Theologie, Seelsorge, Gesundheitswirtschaft, um sich auszutauschen und Handlungsanleitungen für die Zukunft der Krankenversorgung in unserer Gesellschaft zu entwickeln. Daraus entstand dieser Tagungsband, der mit seinen Beiträgen den Dialog von Wissenschaft und Praxis fördern möchte und aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln die aktuellen Gegebenheiten aus Forschung und den Handlungsfeldern der Akteure im Hilfenetzwerk, in einem kritisch-reflexiven Austausch, beleuchtet.

First published in 1959, Walford''s guide to reference material achieved international recognition as a leading bibliographic tool across all subject areas. But, in the 1990s, the web transformed the information universe; and so we have now transformed Walford. The New Walford (TNW) Volume 1: Science, Technology and Medicine is the first volume of a radically different guide. Published over 3 years, TNW will form the most substantial work of its kind in the English language. This book provides a pathway through the huge quantity of information now accessible via the web. The types of material cited have been greatly widened to reflect the revolution brought about by the use of networked information; but we have made sure that print resources are not ignored where these are still valuable. If you are approaching a subject for the first time, TNW will get you on your way, guiding you to the best starting points for your query. For the information professional, TNW''s new way of categorizing resources reflects the fundamental changes that have taken place in the scientific, business, political and social information landscapes. Who is it for This new reference book will be valuable for professionals worldwide who need to suggest resources to people who are relatively unfamiliar with the nuances of a topic and who need to know where to start. The focus is on resources that are most likely to be found and used within public, government, education or business information services. If you are an LIS professional responsible for developing and revising a reference collection, new to reference work, staffing an enquiry desk, a research worker or student, you''ll welcome publication of this new work - it''s your paper portal to the world of reference resources.

Die Analysis findet ihre Vollendung in der komplexen Funktionentheorie, die durch ihre Kraft, Eleganz und Geschlossenheit besticht. Manche Rätsel aus dem Reellen können damit aufgelöst werden, manch schwierige Integrationsaufgabe wird dank neuer, mächtiger Hilfsmittel zum Kinderspiel. Der „Grundkurs Funktionentheorie" präsentiert in seinen ersten drei Kapiteln (Holomorphe Funktionen, Integration im Komplexen und isolierte Singularitäten) ohne Umwege die wichtigsten Elemente der komplexen Analysis von einer Veränderlichen, vom Rechnen mit komplexen Zahlen über die Grundzüge der verblüffend wirkungsvollen Cauchy-Theorie bis hin zum Residuensatz. Ausgerüstet mit diesen Werkzeugen erfährt der Leser im vierten Kapitel, wie analytische Funktionen mit vorgegebenen Nullstellen und Polstellen konstruiert werden, als Beispiele dafür werden die Gamma-Funktion und die elliptischen Funktionen behandelt. Konforme Abbildungen werden schon sehr früh eingeführt und dann mit den immer perfekter werdenden Methoden weiter vertieft. Das abschließende fünfte Kapitel über geometrische Funktionentheorie stellt Zusammenhänge zwischen konformen Abbildungen und der Topologie ebener Gebiete her und zeigt, wie analytische Funktionen mit Hilfe des Spiegelungsprinzips auf immer größere Gebiete fortgesetzt werden können. Wie im Grundkurs Analysis wird viel Wert auf die didaktische Ausarbeitung gelegt, vor allem aber begleiten den Text von Anfang an Ausflüge in die Welt der Anwendungen. Zahlreiche Übungsaufgaben und Illustrationen runden das Bild ab. Das Buch wendet sich an Diplom-, Bachelor- und Masterstudierende in Mathematik, Naturwissenschaften und Informationstechnologie. Es ist geeignet zum Selbststudium, als Begleitlektüre und zur Prüfungsvorbereitung.
