If you find mathematics a struggle, or if mathematics makes you panic - whether you're a student preparing for a calculations test, or a qualified healthcare professional - this is the book for you. Its focus is first and foremost on helping you develop a proper and lasting understanding of mathematical concepts and processes in a healthcare context, with an emphasis on developing mental strategies to reinforce your feeling for number and numerical relationships. Clear, accessible chapters take you step-by-step through specific sets of objectives, and once you feel you have fully mastered a particular mathematical process, you're encouraged to practise your skills through a range of practical examples. Each chapter also contains a 'Spot the Errors' feature designed to reflect the busy, pressurised healthcare environment. Written by Derek Haylock, a best-selling mathematics educator, and Paul Warburton, co-ordinator of the Non-Medical Prescribing programme at Edge Hill University, the book is directly linked to the NMC's competencies and will give you the confidence to perform the safe, error-free calculations required of all healthcare professionals.

"Business Schools Face Test of Faith." "Is It Time to Retrain B-Schools?" As these headlines make clear, business education is at a major crossroads. For decades, MBA graduates from top-tier schools set the standard for cutting-edge business knowledge and skills. Now the business world has changed, say the authors of Rethinking the MBA, and MBA programs must change with it. Increasingly, managers and recruiters are questioning conventional business education. Their concerns? Among other things, MBA programs aren't giving students the heightened cultural awareness and global perspectives they need. Newly minted MBAs lack essential leadership skills. Creative and critical thinking demand far more attention. In this compelling and authoritative new book, the authors: · Document a rising chorus of concerns about business schools gleaned from extensive interviews with deans and executives, and from a detailed analysis of current curricula and emerging trends in graduate business education · Provide case studies showing how leading MBA programs have begun reinventing themselves for the better · Offer concrete ideas for how business schools can surmount the challenges that come with reinvention, including securing faculty with new skills and experimenting with new pedagogies Rich with examples and thoroughly researched, Rethinking the MBA reveals why and how business schools must define a better pathway for the future.

Changing Values in Medical and Healthcare Decision-Making

The growing emphasis on the ethical dimensions of medical care is leading to increased interest among doctors and health care professionals in the applications of ethics to clinical decision making. Recent advances in biomedicine have brought about a situation where there is often a variety of treatment plans open to the clinician; the discipline of clinical ethics strives to provide principles and methods for determining which treatments should be pursued. Changing Values in Medical and Health Care Decision Making charts the progress of changing values in medical and health care decision making, particularly as a result of economic and financial pressures. It evaluates concepts such as risk and need, whose values are relevant to which decisions, the changing emphasis of medicine and the relevance of value judgements in clinical decisions. This is looked at from a number of different perspectives, disciplines and nationalities, to give a cross-disciplinary, international approach; and in addition to medical aspects, philosophical, legal and economic issues are discussed, providing a focus and stimulus for debate.
