The implementation of National registration requires Australian and New Zealand Nurses and Midwives to perform annual Continuing Professional Development. They must also document evidence of skills acquisition, activities, reflection, identification and prioritisation of their learning needs in a portfolio. With the global trend towards e-Portfolios, many higher education institutions encourage the use of e-Portfolios as a tool to enhance learning and demonstrate career development. Nursing and Midwifery Portfolios: evidence of continuing competence 2e has been thoroughly revised with a focus on e-Portfolios to provide tools to structure, reflect, plan, develop and communicate professional achievements for nurses and midwives. A new chapter on Reflection highlights the value of including reflection within portfolios as a critical element towards addressing learning needs for individuals. Australian and New Zealand regulatory frameworks: By providing direct application to the local regulatory context, including applied examples, this book gives the reader the opportunity to understand the perspective of their local regulator – thus assisting them in producing a product that addresses the needs of the regulator. A range of portfolio approaches: Through understanding a range of portfolio approaches, the reader can gauge which approach best meets their needs. Examination of the nature and role of evidence: This assists the reader to understand the need for a range of evidence and how the different types of evidence contribute specific aspects necessary to substantiate the broader argument of competence. Through the use of quality evidence, the reader can compile a more compact but effective portfolio. Performance and career planning: The direct link made in this book between portfolios, performance and career planning means that the value of this book extends beyond being a tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Rather this text is designed to assist a range of clinicians and managers, in assisting them either plan their own careers, or influence others in developing careers inline with the future needs of their organisation. Primary market: Undergraduate Nursing and Midwifery students Secondary markets: Practicing Registered Nurses and Midwives. Also applicable to other health science students undertaking courses leading to regulated health professions.

Portfolio risk forecasting has been and continues to be an active research field for both academics and practitioners. Almost all institutional investment management firms use quantitative models for their portfolio forecasting, and researchers have explored models' econometric foundations, relative performance, and implications for capital market behavior and asset pricing equilibrium. Portfolio Risk Analysis provides an insightful and thorough overview of financial risk modeling, with an emphasis on practical applications, empirical reality, and historical perspective. Beginning with mean-variance analysis and the capital asset pricing model, the authors give a comprehensive and detailed account of factor models, which are the key to successful risk analysis in every economic climate. Topics range from the relative merits of fundamental, statistical, and macroeconomic models, to GARCH and other time series models, to the properties of the VIX volatility index. The book covers both mainstream and alternative asset classes, and includes in-depth treatments of model integration and evaluation. Credit and liquidity risk and the uncertainty of extreme events are examined in an intuitive and rigorous way. An extensive literature review accompanies each topic. The authors complement basic modeling techniques with references to applications, empirical studies, and advanced mathematical texts. This book is essential for financial practitioners, researchers, scholars, and students who want to understand the nature of financial markets or work toward improving them.

The Handbook of Islamic Banking comprises 25 studies by leading international experts on Islamic banking and finance specially commissioned to analyse the various debates and the current state of play in the field. From its origins thirty years ago, Islamic banking has expanded rapidly to become a distinctive and fast growing segment of the international banking and capital markets. Despite this expansion, Islamic banking still remains poorly understood in many parts of the Muslim world and continues to be a mystery in much of the West. This comprehensive Handbook provides a succinct analysis of the workings of Islamic banking and finance, accessible to a wide range of readers. At the same time, it seeks to bring the current research agenda and the main issues on Islamic banking before a wider audience. Islamic banking offers, as an alternative to conventional interest-based financing methods, a wide variety of financial instruments and investment vehicles based on profit-and-loss sharing arrangements. These are all explored in detail along with other subjects such as governance and risk management, securities and investment, structured financing, accounting and regulation, economic development and globalization. M. Kabir Hassan, Mervyn Lewis and the other contributors have created an authoritative and original reference work, which will contribute to a wider understanding of Islamic banking as well as provoking further discussion and research. It will be invaluable to all scholars, researchers and policymakers with an interest in this subject.

In Asset Management: A Systematic Approach to Factor Investing, Professor Andrew Ang presents a comprehensive, new approach to the age-old problem of where to put your money. Years of experience as a finance professor and a consultant have led him to see that what matters aren't asset class labels, but instead the bundles of overlapping risks they represent. Factor risks must be the focus of our attention if we are to weather market turmoil and receive the rewards that come with doing so. Clearly written yet full of the latest research and data, Asset Management is indispensable reading for trustees, professional money managers, smart private investors, and business students who want to understand the economics behind factor risk premiums, to harvest them efficiently in their portfolios, and to embark on the search for true alpha.

The International Conference for Robust Statistics 2003, ICORS 2003, took place at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, from July 13-18. The conference was intended to be a forum where all aspects of robust statistics could be discussed. As such the scientific program included a wide range of talks on new developments and practice of robust statistics, with applications to finance, chemistry, engineering, and other fields. Of equal interest were interactions between robustness and other fields of statistics, and science in general. This volume offers a wide range of papers that were presented at the conference. Several articles primarily contain new methods and theoretical results, while others investigate empirical properties, discuss computational aspects, or emphasize applications of robust methods. Many contributions contain links to other fields, such as computer vision, computational geometry, chemometrics and finance. Intended for both researchers and practitioners, this book will be a valuable resource for studying and applying recent robust statistical methods.
