South Africa's hospitality industry has to cater for extremely diverse nutritional needs - those of foreign tourists, as well as South Africans from all cultural and religious sectors. Eating patterns and trends are constantly changing and it is a challenge to ensure that healthy and nutritional meals are planned and prepared - whether cooking for hundreds of guests, customers or for families at home. Nutrition principles, dietary guidelines and ideas on how to fully utilise South African food resources are explored in this practical and interactive hospitality industry handbook and it concludes with a detailed section on menus and menu planning activities.
Juta's counselling handbook for healthcare professionals will help health professionals apply practical counselling principles to a range of healthcare situations in a South African context. Given the shortage of qualified counsellors and other mental health professionals in South Africa, healthcare workers without specialist knowledge are often called upon to counsel clients. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for many of the issues discussed. However, we hope that this handbook will enable readers to design an appropriate counselling intervention that is helpful to clients and their families.
Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in the workplace is not only a strategic priority in terms of moral or social responsibility, it is also an obligation regulated and governed by law. A well-designed manufacturing process (the operations system) must be both productive and safe, without potential physical, emotional and mental health risks. OSH management has become a very complex multi-functional science within operations management and total quality management (TQM). It focuses on a non-legalistic approach whereby the organisational culture fosters spontaneous OSH and a high quality of work life. This is done by using a TQM approach, based on a functional TQM model.
Early recognition of the signs of deterioration in a patient has a significant impact on the rates of admission to ICU. Clear clinical warning signals become evident 6–8 hours prior to cardiac arrest.
Acute Care: Clinical Assessment and Treatment of Acutely ill Patients details a system that identifies the patient at risk and outlines appropriate interventions to either avert admission to ICU or ensure the patient receives optimal care prior to being transferred to ICU.
Acute Care will be invaluable for nurses working in the general ward looking after the acutely ill patient, or nurses wishing to refresh their knowledge of ICU principles.
It is also recommended for nurses in healthcare facilities that do not have an ICU.
Story telling is not only for children. It is a powerful way to relay a message because it evokes visual imagery in both the mind and the emotions, and this helps others to connect with the message and its content. Nursing records are nothing other than an informational story that needs to be told so that the whole medical team can obtain a similar understanding of the healthcare user and his or her health status. Record keeping is the first in a series of books aimed primarily at the registered nurse wishing to continue with his/her professional development (CPD). Each title covers one important topic, and has been written by a specialist in that field. The series follows a consistent format and covers issues such as key ethical and legal considerations, relevant legislation, case studies, and practical applications. Record keeping includes: Why do we need to keep records?; nursing records; writing incident reports; legislation; ethics and record keeping; record keeping as a communication tool.

Clinical Ophthalmology Companion is a comprehensive reference book for all healthcare practitioners who are working in ophthalmology and optometry. It is written as a quick reference guide, rather than as a lavishly illustrated text. It has been written to accompany other illustrated texts and is intended to facilitate use during consultation.

Res Ipsa Loquitur and Medical Negligence: A Comparative Survey analyses the application of the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur ('it speaks for itself') to medical negligence cases. The book aims to establish conclusively that the approach of the South African courts, that the doctrine should never find application in medical negligence cases, is untenable and out of touch with modern approaches adopted in other countries. Constitutional principles such as procedural equality, access to courts, access to health care, access to information, post-constitutional legislation, medical ethics and policy considerations are also discussed.
The book further provides a theoretical and practical legal framework for the application of the doctrine to medical negligence cases in South Africa in future. The authors argue for the application of the doctrine, not only in medical negligence cases, but also to related legal procedures that follow a medical accident such as medical inquests, criminal prosecutions and disciplinary inquiries instituted by the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
Res Ipsa Loquitur and Medical Negligence includes a comprehensive comparison of the practical application of the doctrine to medical negligence cases in South Africa, England and the United States of America.

The discipline of disaster medicine is the study and collaborative application of various health sciences towards the prevention of, preparation for, response to and recovery from health problems arising from a disaster.
Because disasters can strike anywhere in the world and can have devastating effects on the community, it is vitally important that the different agencies, government departments and medical disciplines work together to draw up adequate mitigation plans. It is also crucial that each agency is aware of its responsibilities and understands the chain of command in a disaster situation.
In a clear and concise manner Disaster Medicine covers all the critical aspects necessary to deal with any type of man-made or natural disaster.
Global public health has improved vastly during the past 25 years, and especially in the survival of infants and young children. However, many of these children, particularly in Africa, continue to live in poverty and in unhealthy, unsupportive environments, and will not be able to meet their developmental potential. In other words, they will survive but not thrive. The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stress sustainable development, not just survival and disease reduction, and the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health proposes a Survive (end preventable deaths), Thrive (ensure health and wellbeing) and Transform (expand enabling environments) agenda. For children to thrive they must make good developmental progress from birth until the end of adolescence.
Addressing the social determinants of developmental problems, this volume offers a broad, contextualised understanding of the factors that impact on children and adolescents in Africa. Unlike other works on the subject it is Africa-wide in its scope, with case studies in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Africa. Covering mental health as well as physical and social development, it looks at policies and practice, culture and priorities for research, identifying challenges and proposing solutions.
Recommended for academics, students and practitioners in psychology, including developmental psychology, child clinical psychology, developmental psychopathology, psychiatry, human ecology, and in schools of education. It will also be of interest to nurses and paediatricians, health workers and those interested in early childhood development.
