2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program discusses nursing in terms of the rehabilitation of the neurologically disabled patient. Coping with a severe physical disability and the re-integration into family and community living following brain damage and trauma and spinal cord injury is discussed. Through individual relating of personal experiences a variety of patients, including a quadriplegic, paraplegic and hemiplegic, are depicted in various injury stages. Support for the family, anxieties, withdrawal, financial problems, role reversals, transportation, housing, redevelopment of identity, societal barriers, and the importance of goals are covered. Although the pace is slow and the narration monotonous, the patient interview format is interesting. This overview of the problems encountered by a disabled person upon re-entering the community is recommended for professional staff who are working with the disabled for the first time, or for nurses, physicians, OTs, PTsand speech pathologists
The Neurologically disabled patient( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Activities of daily living, skin and joint integrity( Visual )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program, part of a series from the American Journal of Nursing Company, reviews care of the neurologically disabled patient during the rehabilitative stage. Skin problems and protection, extremity positioning, education for self-care, physical therapy, and exercises are discussed. Self-esteem, re-integration difficulties, and the need for humanity and communication in a rehabilitation program are emphasized and related to the nurse's role. The disabilities and nursing interventions of two patients, one with spinal cord injury, and one a stroke victim, are paralleled. Although clear and concise, this module requires the presence of a knowledgable instructor, and it is suggested that the series be used as a unit. It is recommended for nurse practitioners in rehabilitation, neurology, neurosurgery, general medical/surgical, and for graduates or students in Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy
Critical care( Visual )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This module, one in a series on the neurologically disabled patient, discusses four major problems of the acutely ill neurological patient: respiratory failure, aspiration, infections, and increased intra-cranial pressure. Preventive and therapeutic interventions are demonstrated including clapping, vibrating, and suctioning procedures. More emphasis is placed on techniques than on principles or the etiology of problems and clinical changes associated with the therapeutic interventions. A critical component in the technique of turning the quadriplegic patient was not observable. Charts illustrating the relationship of intracranial pressure and various factors were not explained. This clear, well-designed program is recommended with reservations for baccalaureate nursing students and staff nurses
Preparation for home care( Visual )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program, part of a series from the American Journal of Nursing Company, discusses care of the neurologically disabled patient during the rehabilitation stage. Preparation for home care is outlined. Reinforcement of patient/family teaching needs, the rehabilitation process, the importance of self-care, and sexual adjustment and instruction are emphasized. Readjustment, emotional support, grieving and mourning, and the necessary patient reevaluation of goals and environment are discussed. Two patients, one with spinal cord injury and the other a stroke victim, are paralleled as far as the disabilities and nursing interventions. The program should be used in conjunction with a knowledgable instructor and with the rest of the series. It is clear and concise, and highly recommended for nurse practitioners in rehabilitation, neurology, neurosurgery, general medical/surgical, as well as occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech therapists
Supportive care( Visual )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This module, part of a series on the neurologically disabled patient. Reviews patient outcomes of acute care nursing, namely intact skin, normal range of joint motion, maintenance of adequate weight, skin turgor, and output, prevention of fecal impaction, and adequate sleep and rest. There are excellent demonstrations of body positioning, range of motion exercises, and patient feeding techniques. Two nurse-patient interactions illustrate effective approaches to managing hostile and aggressive patient behavior. An excellent segment describes the criteria for transfer of a patient to a rehabilitation setting, and a nurse-patient-wife conference regarding the preparation for such a transfer. This clear, well designed program is highly recommended for use

(Critical) This module, one in a series on the neurologically disabled patient, discusses the procedure for admission of an aphasic patient to a rehabilitation setting. An admission interview conducted by a nurse with an aphasic patient and his wife illustrates important principles and techniques of communication and recognition of patient control of his care program. The problem of memory loss associated with brain damage is illustrated, reaction to changes in rehabilitative vs. acute care setting is featured, and therapeutic suggestions are made. A conference between nurse, social worker and speech therapist elaborates the concept of anxiety as central in physical disability.

The causes, pathophysiology, nature, and prognosis of neurological disabilities are discussed, and the reflex arc, pyramidal system, sensory pathways, and the lobes of the brain are explained. The program is clear, concise, and stimulates discussion, but it should be used under the auspices of a knowledgable instructor, and it is suggested the series is presented as a unit.

The strategic value of business method patents in information systems by Nancy L Martin( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of information systems (IS) and information technology (IT) as strategic business tools has been widely acknowledged by both practitioners and academics. In fact, IT has become ubiquitous in today's business environment to the point that IT applications are viewed as strategic necessities (Barua & Lee, 1997; Clemons, 1986; Clemons & Kimbrough, 1986). Hence, researchers have long been interested in the business value of IT and its influence on gaining and sustaining competitive advantage. Many claim that IT is subject to easy duplication and lack of protection (Clemons & Row, 1991; Mata, Fuerst, & Barney, 1995; Sethi & King, 1994) and therefore sustained competitive advantage from IT is not a reality. However, other researchers have been able to show that the strategic use of IT applications can lead to longer term superior performance (Brown, Gatian, & Hicks Jr., 1995; Kettinger, Grover, Guha, & Segars, 1994; Santhanam & Hartono, 2003). A recent call for research (Mykytyn, Mykytyn Jr., Bordoloi, McKinney, & Bandyopadhyay, 2002) brought to light the possibility that business method software patents could be the missing link between the strategic use of IT and sustained competitive advantage. Software patents have become much more valuable and enforceable in recent years providing protection for the patent owner that has not been considered by academicians. In this study, 48 patenting firms were matched with 48 nonpatenting competitors and their performance was compared through a variety of measures and methods in order to explore patent-protected IT-enabled sustained competitive advantage. The ownership of business method patents was not found to be a significant contributor to competitive advantage. However, patent owning firms that were able to gain an initial performance improvement were more likely to maintain that advantage over time. This study extends the current theory of IS-enabled competitive advantage by introducing business method patents to the existing body of knowledge. In addition to its contribution to IS research, this study also benefits practitioners. The results may cause firms to question the strategic value of business method patents and the tradeoffs that are made in the process of obtaining such patents
