A renowned cardiologist and Harvard professor spells out  the future digital shift of medicine — and how it will impact the lives not only of patients and health care professionals but of all humans.

Future care is virtual care: sensor-aided, digitally enabled, and powered by predictive analytics. Like most facets of modern life, human organs, too, are being digitally monitored. Sensors are well on their way to helping us proactively capture the information needed to predict and prevent disease. Paired with the medical world’s growing emphasis on wellness and prevention, the digital revolution will help us effectively monitor and address the chronic diseases that have been the Achilles’ heel of the health care system to date. This large-scale transition is not only going to reshape the patient-physician relationship but also dramatically change how hospitals and the business of medicine operate.

Dr. Singh explores the upswell of virtual care, the evolving role of sensors, and the impact of artificial intelligence in medicine and health care through cutting-edge science, big idea projections, and patient stories. Using anecdotes from his own COVID-19 illness and medical practice, Dr. Singh shows that the success of the digital revolution in medicine is dependent on our ability to understand and adapt to this changing landscape. 

Future Care provides fascinating insights into how health care can become sensible, affordable, and practical and why everyone needs to become a part of the solution. It is an important and timely contribution to the ongoing and increasingly urgent conversation about medicine, technology, and health care.

This book provides primary care physicians and their medical teams with the detailed information they need to offer a full range of women’s health procedures to their patients. Many primary care providers offer women’s health procedures in an office setting for a variety of reasons, from the value placed on continuity of care to the lack of access to specialty care that patients may experience in rural areas. Each chapter in this book is written by a primary care physician and outlines one women’s health procedure and its background information, indications, contraindications, complications, equipment, procedure steps, an office note, patient instructions and a patient handout. Tricks, helpful hints, key points, discussion questions, algorithms, and a wealth of illustrations are included through the book. This second edition is fully updated with the latest procedures and guidelines, ICD 10 coding information, and three new chapters on population health, contraceptive choice, and insertable contraceptive removal. Primary Care Procedures in Women’s Health, Second Edition, is an ideal reference for all providers?including family physicians, general internists, residents, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives and physicians assistants?to be competent and comfortable performing a spectrum of office-based, women’s health procedures.

This book provides primary care clinicians, researchers, and educators with a guide that helps facilitate comprehensive, evidenced-based healthcare of women and gender diverse populations. Many primary care training programs in the United States lack formalized training in women’s health, or if they do, the allotted time for teaching is sparse. This book addresses this learning gap with a solid framework for any program or individual interested in learning about or teaching women’s health.

It can serve as a quick in-the-clinic reference between patients, or be used to steer curricular efforts in medical training programs, particularly tailored to internal medicine, family medicine, gynecology, nursing, and advanced practice provider programs. Organized to cover essential topics in women’s health and gender based care, this text is divided into eight sections: Foundations of Women's Health and Gender Based Medicine, Gynecologic Health and Disease, Breast Health and Disease, Common Medical Conditions, Chronic Pain Disorders, Mental Health and Trauma, Care of Selected Populations (care of female veterans and gender diverse patients), and Obstetric Medicine. Using the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and American Board of Internal Medicine blueprints for examination development, authors provide evidence-based reviews with several challenge questions and annotated answers at the end of each chapter. The epidemiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of all disease processes are detailed in each chapter. Learning objectives, summary points, certain exam techniques, clinical pearls, diagrams, and images are added to enhance reader’s engagement and understanding of the material.

Written by experts in the field, Sex and Gender-Based Women's Health is designed to guide all providers, regardless of training discipline or seniority, through comprehensive outpatient women’s health and gender diverse care.

Автор: Maria Pollard; ISBN-10: 1032252405; ISBN-13: 978-1032252407; Edition: 3rd

Mapped to the UNICEF Baby Friendly Learning Outcomes, this new edition of Pollard’s essential textbook ensures readers are equipped with the essential knowledge and skills to eff ectively promote and support breastfeeding mothers.

Breastfeeding is a major public health issue. Not only does breastmilk provide all the nutrients a baby needs for their fi rst six months, but research shows it also helps to protect infants from infection and reduce obesity, as well as helping to protect mothers from some diseases in later life. Although many women want to breastfeed, rates drop rapidly in the fi rst days and weeks after giving birth. Women need the support of their midwives and health visitors when establishing breastfeeding and throughout their children’s infancy. This comprehensive and accessible text covers:

  • anatomy and physiology
  • building relationships
  • essential skills and good practice guidance
  • dealing with common problems
  • public health considerations
  • mothers needing additional support
  • babies with special needs; and
  • complementary feeding and weaning.

Suitable for midwifery and nursing students, as well as practitioners undertaking continuing professional development, Evidence-based Care for Breastfeeding Mothers is designed to aid learning. Each chapter begins with specific learning outcomes linked to the Baby Friendly Learning Outcomes, key fact boxes, clinical scenarios and activities.

Автор: Jennifer Block; Length: 0738211664; Language: 978-0738211664
In the United States, more than half the women who give birth are given drugs to induce or speed up labor; for nearly a third of mothers, childbirth is major surgery -- the cesarean section. For women who want an alternative, choice is often unavailable: Midwives are sometimes inaccessible; in eleven states they are illegal. In one of those states, even birthing centers are outlawed.When did birth become an emergency instead of an emergence? Since when is normal, physiological birth a crime? A groundbreaking journalistic narrative, Pushed presents the complete picture of maternity care in America. Crisscrossing the country to report what women really experience during childbirth, Jennifer Block witnessed several births - from a planned cesarean to an underground home birth. Against this backdrop, Block investigates whether routine C-sections, inductions, and epidurals equal medical progress. She examines childbirth as a reproductive rights issue: Do women have the right to an optimal birth experience? If so, is that right being upheld? Block's research and experience reveal in vivid detail that while emergency obstetric care is essential, there is compelling evidence that we are overusing medical technology at the expense of maternal and infant health: Either women's bodies are failing, or the system is failing women.
