A generation at risk : the global impact of HIV/AIDS on orphans and vulnerable children by Geoff Foster( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a Foreword by Desmond Tutu, Generation at Risk brings insightful perspectives from experienced practitioners and researchers on how a better future can be secured for the millions of children who are being orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. The current situation of these children is grim, and while there has been significant action by governments, international organizations, religious bodies, and non-governmental organizations, the vast majority of children made vulnerable by AIDS have not benefited from any assistance beyond their own extended family and community. A Generation at Risk explains in straightforward terms what is required to fill this gap. The book addresses what needs to be done in the areas of education, community mobilization and capacity building, economic strengthening at household and community levels, psychosocial support, and the protection of children and the fulfilment of their rights

Cases in bioethics : from the Hastings Center report by Carol Levine( Book )

20 editions published between 1982 and 1989 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies of ethical issues based on real events are followed by comments illustrating how people from various ethical traditions and frameworks and from different academic and professional disciplines analyze the issues and work toward a resolution of the conflict posed. The cases are intended to help the public and professional persons pursue reflective, well-thought-out solutions to real human moral dilemmas, using a systematic ethical analysis. There are seven chapters. The case studies in chapter 1, on issues in reproduction, treat abortion, population programs, risk taking and birth defects, sterilization, and rape. Chapter 2, on patient-physician relationships, examines homosexuality, choosing a therapy when doctors disagree, and faith healing for childhood leukemia. Mental health and medical interventions are the topics of the third chapter. Euthanasia, nurturing a defective newborn, organ donation, and family wishes and patient autonomy are examples of topics treated in chapter 4 on death and dying. Chapters 5 and 6 examine human subjects research and the allocation of scarce (health) resources. The concluding chapter deals with public policy and includes cases on laetrile, baby making, anti-aging drugs, drinking on the job, and state legislation regarding child passenger protection. (Rm)

Always on call : when illness turns families into caregivers by Carol Levine( Book )

"First published in 2000 and now substantially updated, Always on Call provides an intimate look at the world of family caregiving. The compelling narratives by caregivers capture the intensity of the caregiving experience, while chapters by noted health care professionals, many of whom speak of their own experiences, analyze the impact of caregiving, urge more professional advocacy on behalf of caregivers, and offer insightful suggestions for building partnerships for change and fostering improvement." "Designed for family caregivers, health professionals, administrators, pastoral care providers, policymakers, patient and caregiver advocates, and human resource professionals, Always on Call is an essential book for understanding the current realities of family caregiving. Equally important, it builds a compelling case for change."--Jacket

Family caregivers on the job : moving beyond ADLs and IADLs( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 27 million Americans care for a seriously ill or aging relative at home. Yet neither health care professionals nor policymakers have the tools necessary to describe the tasks family caregivers perform, the first step toward developing supportive services and policies. Instead, they have relied on Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), measures developed to assess care recipients' functional deficits, to assess the realities of the lives of their care providers. The authors of this book seek to redress the gap.--Cover. p. 4
