The economics of health reconsidered by Thomas H Rice( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to reconsider the economics of health. It does so by examining the assumptions on which the superiority of competitive approaches are based, and how, if they are not met, this affects health policy choices. Although each chapter provides numerous applications, the book is really more about theory - both its use and misuse. The book will attempt to show that economic theory provides no support for the belief that competition in healthcare will lead to superior social outcomes. The book is divided into six chapters. Chapters 2 through 4 deal with the three central themes of microeconomic theory: market competition, demand theory, and supply theory. Chapter 5 explore the final assumption, equity and redistribution, a topic of tremendous importance to policy but one that has been given insufficient attention by health economists. The conclusion, offers some final thoughts concerning the role of competition in the health area

Fundamentals of the physical therapy examination : patient interview and tests & measures by Stacie J Fruth( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forlagets beskrivelse: Fundamentals of the Physical Therapy Examination: Patient Interview and Tests & Measures introduces physical therapy students to essential screening and examination techniques that form the foundation of their practice, across all body systems. It then builds on the foundational knowledge and helps students develop clinical decision-making skills. Experienced clinicians make numerous and rapid decisions about what questions to ask during a patient interview, what systems need to be screened for problems that lie outside the scope of physical therapy, and what tests and measures must be performed during an initial patient examination. Physical therapy students and some new graduates often struggle with this decision-making process and answering the "why" questions. This text provides the reader with fundamental, step-by-step approach to the subjective and objective portions of the examination process for a broad spectrum of patients within the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary, and cardiopulmonary realms (according to the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice). Ample rationale is provided for why a test/measure would or would not be selected based on the patient's diagnosis or presentation. In addition to rationale to help with the clinical decision-making process, case examples and sample documentation will also be provided. The text also includes access to an extensive array of online videos demonstrating the "how to" for a wide variety of fundamental physical therapy tests and measures, such as gross strength testing, various sensory tests, reflex assessment, and examples of a number of abnormal gait patterns. Also included in the videos are two complete patient examinations (interview and tests/measures), one musculoskeletal and one neurological. Key Features: Clinical decision-making flow charts, Key point callouts, Clinical challenge questions, Rationales, Case examples, Documentation examples, Hundreds of full-color photographs, Videos (an online access code accompanies each new print textbook), Key Topics, Patient interview techniques and communication tools, including sample interview questions, Review of body systems, Overview of physical screening tests and measures as outlined by the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Descriptions, rationales, and case scenarios for each test and measure, The step-by-step approach, Types of tests and measures: Observation, mental status, and functional assessment - Musculoskeletal screening - Neurological screening - Integumentary screening.
