Communication and Medical Practice: Social Relations in the Clinic

February 24, 2009 | Comments Off on Communication and Medical Practice: Social Relations in the Clinic

The importance of the doctor-patient interaction in medical practice has become the focus of much recent study and debate. “Patient-centered medicine” has become a new conventional wisdom in medical practice. The power relations involved in doctor-patient interaction have been stressed by recent feminist and critical work in medical sociology. Silverman’s important new volume provides a carefully researched and analytically sensitive view of how doctors and patients in fact relate. Among the key themes of the book are the way in which doctor-patient conversation varies according to the patient’s medical history and method of payment; the problems implicit in pediatric medicine when parents and children are viewed as social actors with psychological propensities; and the difficulties intrinsic to reformist medical practice and patient-centered medicine. This book is essential reading for scholars and students in the fields of medical sociology, medical social work, and professional medical training. “This book confirms David Silverman’s place at the cutting edge of current sociology. It fuses the latest ideas from Europe and the USA with the moral and practical concerns of the British tradition. As a study of medical practice, it will also appeal to reflective practitioners throughout the health professions.” –Robert Dingwall, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford “This is fascinating sociology. It goes beyond traditional theories–for instance, concerning the significance of social class and language differences in lay-professional encounters–while lucidly exposing more subtle interactional complexities. It develops theory while acknowledging practicalities. Research methods and problems are carefully discussed. This is a clearly organized text with indexes and references.” –Nursing Times “This book has much to offer. Sociologists unfamiliar with the sociolinguistics will find an accessible (i.e., not tediously technical) introduction that shows how discourse analysis can contribute to an understanding of the operation of power. Sociolinguists will appreciate the validation it gives their claim that discourse analysis reveals the substance of social life. Medical sociologists will find sophisticated insights into doctor-patient interaction and professional dominance.” –Contemporary Sociology “I would recommend this book to all those engaged in the practice or study of encounters between patients and health professionals. It is thought provoking, and will fuel many lively debates covering ideology, policy, and clinical practice.” –British Journal of Medical Psychology “David Silverman’s book is perhaps the most substantial and impressive British study yet published in this genre.” –International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy “A particularly refreshing book. . . . A fascinating glimpse of the relationship between professionals in the medical world and their clients. It will strike a particular cord with mental health workers who are a part of perhaps the most intrusive discipline of all.” –Behaviour, Research & Therapy “The analytic style in handling the data makes this work fascinating. . . . In sum, this is a rich work in the sociology of language and communication. . . . This is an important contribution to understanding patient-physician interactions. The emphasis on social forms and deft dismantling of ideological arguments about the nature of medical practice are outstanding contributions.” –Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

Medical Massage Care’s Therapeutic Massage National Certification Practice Exams

February 23, 2009 | Comments Off on Medical Massage Care’s Therapeutic Massage National Certification Practice Exams

Designed to help massage students pass the National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage (NCETM) and the National Certification Examination for Massage and Bodywork (NCETMB), the publication includes 1,600 questions, the equivalent of ten complete 160-question national certification exams.

Customer Review: Helpful resource…

I purchased this book back in June because I was taking the NCTM exam in September and I wanted a resource that would provide me with lots of sample questions. I started out using it in conjunction with my own review, working with the guide purchased through NCBTMB. Basically it is a book with just multiple choice questions divided into 10 exams of 160 questions each. It claims to mimic the NCTM exam. I used it to test my knowledge and to find out what areas I needed to spend more time on. I would take one exam a week (since I made full use of my 12 week preparation time). The advantage of this resource is that after completing 4 or 5 exams you get a sense of how long it takes you to answer that many questions and also it teaches you to build up the mental stamina to tackle that many questions. Along the way I identified several other books that I needed to really get a grasp of the questions…these included; A massage therapists guide to pathology (Werner)(although this reference was frustratingly incomplete and I needed to look elsewhere for descriptions of what many pathologies were), Muscles (Kendall), clinically orientated Anatomy (Moore, Dalley), Principles of anatomy and physiology (tortora). Most of all my own notes from school were an important resource. This book falls short of 5 stars because there were some notable errors to some question keys (about 2 questions per exam) which was very frustrating because it made you question other answers. Some questions were repeated in different ways between each sample exam (a lot of ‘right handed/ left handed effects’ on posture are used in the assessment sections, but did not show up at all on the real exam). Also, the actual exam itself is computerised, not on paper, so it maybe more useful to have this in a CD ROM form to practice an actual exam format. Just prior to the exam I also purchased a copy of Plain and simple Guide tp therapeutic massage and bodywork certification (Laura Allen) which was really good for a last minute review and has questions for additional practice.
Having completed all 10 practice exams I was ready for the real thing…and I passed with high scores in all categories.

Medical-Surgical Nursing: Foundations for Clinical Practice

February 19, 2009 | Comments Off on Medical-Surgical Nursing: Foundations for Clinical Practice

Customer Review: Great Medical-Surgical Book for Nurses!

This is a great basic medical-surgical book for nursing students and nurses. Almost every disease mentioned in the book are given nursing diagnoses and care planning guides. It gives basic knowledge on diseases that are out there, sign and symptoms, medical and surgical treatment, and what nurses can do for their patients. I used the first edition in nursing school (the author was our nursing school chairperson) and used the 2nd edition towards the end of nursing school. I even brought the copy to my job – it is very helpful especially when I have to write a care plan for my newly admitted patients. I just look up my patient’s diagnosis and voila, the care plan is there – I use it for reference. My co-workers are even thankful that I brought it with me, they said that the book is very easy to use.
