Clinical Skills for Healthcare Assistants is an accessible, easy to read guide, outlining the fundamental and core skills integral to clinical practice. Divided into three sections, the first looks at fundamental skills applicable to all staff, such as accountability, communication and record keeping. Section two explores core clinical skills for example respiratory care, pulse, blood glucose management, catheter care, and fluid balance. Section three outlines complex clinical skills that require more in-depth training and may be restricted to specialist areas of practice, such as medication, and intravenous cannulation. Each chapter follows the same easy to use structure, starting with the aims and objectives of the chapter, followed by the explanation of why the skill is performed, relevant anatomy and physiology, related aspects and terminology, how to perform the skill and common problems. Aimed primarily at healthcare assistants, this will also be a useful resource for newly qualified practitioners and students in health and social care.

Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene stehen Veränderungen, die in der Therapie angegangen werden sollen, oftmals ambivalent und zweifelnd gegenüber. Fehlende Gesprächsbereitschaft oder Abwehrhaltung sind die Folgen. Naar-King und Suarez erläutern anhand vieler Beispiele das Prinzip und die konkrete Umsetzung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. Es geht darum, den jungen Klienten die Diskrepanzen aufzuzeigen, die zwischen ihren eigentlichen Werten und Zielen und ihrem tatsächlichen Verhalten bestehen. Dadurch verstärkt sich der Wunsch der Jugendlichen, mit Hilfe des Therapeuten am eigenen Verhalten zu arbeiten. Die notwendigen Kommunikationsstrategien werden anschaulich im Buch vermittelt. Aus dem Inhalt: I Grundlagen:1 Einleitung. 2 Pubertät und junges Erwachsenenalter. 3 Die Grundhaltung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. 4 Personenzentrierte Beratungsqualitäten. 5 Auf Widerstand reagieren. 6 Change Talk. 7 Commitment. 8.

It is vital for NPs and PAs to be highly skilled in EKG interpretation to correctly identify high-risk patients and to make appropriate clinical decisions. This reference book is the first to present a comprehensive, multifaceted approach to EKG interpretation, covering all major topics required for expertise in this area.
