Examining Tuskegee : the infamous syphilis study and its legacy by Susan M Reverby( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 2,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forty year "Tuskegee" Syphilis Study has become the American metaphor for medical racism, government malfeasance, and physician arrogance. The subject of histories, films, rumors, and political slogans, it received an official federal apology from President Bill Clinton in a White House ceremony. The author offers an analysis of the notorious study of untreated syphilis, which took place in and around Tuskegee, Alabama, from the 1930s through the 1970s. The study involved hundreds of African American men, most of whom were told by doctors from the U.S. Public Health Service that they were being treated, not just watched, for their late stage syphilis. She examines the study and its aftermath from multiple perspectives to explain what happened and why the study has such power in our collective memory. She follows the study's repercussions in facts and fictions. She highlights the many uncertainties that dogged the study during its four decades and explores the newly available medical records. She uncovers the different ways it was understood by the men, their families, and health care professionals, ultimately revising conventional wisdom on the study. This work illuminates the events and aftermath of the study and sheds light on the complex knot of trust, betrayal, and belief that keeps this study alive in our cultural and political lives

America's working women : a documentary history, 1600 to the present( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark work when it appeared in 1976, America's Working Women helped form the field of women's studies and transform labor history. Now the authors have enlarged the dimensions of this important anthology; more than half the selections and all the introductory material are new. Spanning the years from 1600 to the present, selections from diaries, popular magazines, historical works, oral histories, letters, songs, poetry, and fiction show women's creativity in supporting themselves, their families, and organizations or associations. Slave women recall their field work, family work, and sabotage. We see Indian women farming, and we also see the white culture coercing Indian women to give up farming. We see women in industry playing a central part in the union movement while facing the particular hazards of women's jobs and working conditions. New selections show the historical origins of today's important issues: sexual harassment, equal pay, "sex work," work in the underground economy, work in the home, and shift work. With an expanded focus on women from all racial and ethnic backgrounds and regions, America's Working Women grounds us in the battles women have fought and the ones they are in the process of winning
Ordered to care : the dilemma of American nursing, 1850-1945 by Susan M Reverby( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An engaging study of the dilemmas faced by American nursing, which examines the ideology, practice, and efforts at reform of both trained and untrained nurses in the years between 1850 and 1945. Ordered to Care provides an overall history of nursing's development and places that growth within the context of new questions raised by women's history and the social history of health care. Building upon extensive use of primary and quantitative data, the author creates a collective portrait of nursing, from the work of the individual nurse to the political efforts of its organizations. Dr. Reverby contends that nursing's contemporary difficulties are caused by its historical obligation to care in a society that refuses to value caring. She examines the historical consequences of this critical dilemma and concludes with a discussion of why nursing will have to move beyond its obligation to care, and what the implications of this change would be for all of us

Health care in America : essays in social history( Book )

10 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection have been written by a new generation of social historians who seek to ground the internal developments in medicine and health care in a political, social, and cultural matrix. Drawing upon the methodology of the new social history, the authors use oral history, hospital records, city directories, rank and file writings, as well as more traditional historical sources to examine the groups, institutions, and social movements which brought about changes in the American health system at particular historical moments. The essays in this volume address three themes of central concern to the health field: the shifting boundaries between professional and lay control over the definition of health and disease; the social and economic consequences of the changing focus of health care delivery; and the complex relationship between workers, professionals, and health care institutions. -- from Book Jacket

In this documentary film, nurses in a variety of care settings confront serious ethical dilemmas which affect their patients. The film's four sequences involve the ethical principles of beneficence, autonomy, justice and fidelity. In Case 1 (Children's Hospital Medical Center, Boston, Mass.), the Primary Nurse and her associates in the nursery face conflicts regarding the proper care of a hydranecephalic newborn. In Case 2 (Eastwood Pines Nursing Home, Gardner, Mass.), the Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses staffing a rural nursing home must weigh the ethical considerations involved in applying mechanical and chemical restraints against the wishes of their patients. Case 3 (University of California Medical Center, San Francisco, Calif.), takes place in a busy general intensive care unit, where the Charge Nurse and other health team members debate their reasons for choosing to give more or less nursing care to particular patients. In Case 4 (University of California Medical Center, San Francisco, Calif.), a nurse reflects on the difficulties of caring for a dying woman and on the conflict between her loyalties to the patient and the patient's family.

"Recently unearthed documents show around 700 Guatemalan soldiers, prisoners, prostitutes and mental patients were infected as part of a study into the effects of penicillin. It's unclear if the patients were ever cured of the diseases or even given treatment. Hours after the findings were revealed, President Obama apologized to Guatemalan President Álvaro Colom, who called the experiments a "crime against humanity." We speak to Susan Reverby, the medical historian who discovered the Guatemala study. Medical historian Susan Reverby, author of Examining Tuskegee: The Infamous Syphilis Study and its Legacy, discusses the history of medical experimentation at home and abroad. We also play excerpts of the documentary Deadly Deception: The Tuskegee Study"--DemocracyNow website, Nov. 20, 2012
