For over forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into more than a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a "medical classic", it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG.

The education system in South Africa is struggling to help learners to develop their full potential, particularly those from poor and rural communities. Research has shown that a lack of communication skills has become a major challenge and a barrier to learning for many learners. The current situation in this country requires us to consider not only children who have specific communication impairments, but also those battling to develop communication skills when their situation places them at a severe disadvantage. Speech-language therapy in a school context is a much-needed academic text for training students in speech-language therapy and audiology to work effectively in an educational environment. Speech-language therapy in a school context promotes collaborative practices among professionals, including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, learning support therapists and teachers, while reinforcing the ethical principles and practices required by the Health Professions Council of South Africa. It provides theory and practical guidelines in line with the Revised National Curriculum Statement and is supported by interactive learning activities. Chapters include the following: Speech-language therapy in a multicultural context; Inclusive education in South Africa; Communication as a critical resource for everyday living, learning and earning; Institutional language policies: the South African Schools Act; Multilingualism and primary language impairment; Ensuring culture-fair assessment and intervention; Integrated classroom-based speech-language services; Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems; Educational psychology in South Africa. Speech-language therapy in a school context is aimed at students in speech-language therapy and audiology and is also a valuable foundational text for practicing therapists.

The nurse today faces many challenges, such as staff shortages and industrial action and must continuously assess his or her professional responsibilities. A new approach to Professional Practice provides sound advice on all relevant issues.

In this paradigm-shifting book from acclaimed Harvard Medical School doctor and one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people on earth, Dr. David Sinclair reveals that everything we think we know about ageing is wrong, and shares the surprising, scientifically-proven methods that can help readers live younger, longer. For decades, the medical community has looked to a variety of reasons for why we age, and the consensus is that no one dies of old age; they die of age-related diseases. That's because ageing is not a disease - it is inevitable. But what if everything you think you know about ageing is wrong? What if ageing is a disease? And that disease is curable. In THE EVOLUTION OF AGEING, Dr. David Sinclair, one of the world's foremost authorities on genetics and ageing, argues just that. He has dedicated his life's work to chasing more than a longer lifespan - he wants to enable people to live longer, healthier, and disease-free well into our hundreds. In this book, he reveals a bold new theory of ageing, one that pinpoints a root cause of ageing that lies in an ancient genetic survival circuit. This genetic trick - a circuit designed to halt reproduction in order to repair damage to the genome -has enabled earth's early microcosms to survive and evolve into more advanced organisms. But this same survival circuit is the reason we age: as genetic damage accumulates over our lifespans from UV rays, environmental toxins, and unhealthy diets, our genome is overwhelmed, causing gray hair, wrinkles, achy joints, heart issues, dementia, and, ultimately, death. But genes aren't our destiny; we have more control over them than we've been taught to believe. We can't change our DNA, but we can harness the power of the epigenome to realise the true potential of our genes. Drawing on his cutting-edge findings at the forefront of medical research, Dr. Sinclair will provide a scientifically-proven roadmap to reverse the genetic clock by activating our vitality genes, so we can live younger longer. Readers will discover how a few simple lifestyle changes - like intermittent fasting, avoiding too much animal protein, limiting sugar, avoiding x-rays, exercising with the right intensity, and even trying cold therapy - can activate our vitality genes. Dr. Sinclair ends the book with a look to the near future, exploring what the world might look like - and what will need to change - when we are all living well to 120 or more. Dr. Sinclair takes what we have long accepted as the limits of human potential and mortality and turns them into choices. THE EVOLUTION OF AGEING is destined to be the biggest book on genes, biology, and longevity of this decade.

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.
Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's The Spirit Level, now published in more than twenty languages, has been one of the most influential non-fiction books published in the last decade, showing conclusively how less equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across a whole range of social measures - health, education, levels of violence, life expectancy and child wellbeing - and initiating the enormous public attention now given to the impacts of inequality. Based on an equally impressive range of data and analysis, The Inner Level now shows the impact inequality has on individuals: how it affects us psychologically, makes social relations more stressful, undermines self-confidence and distorts natural differences in personal abilities. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of wellbeing than those based on excessive individualism, competitiveness and social aggression. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level will transform ideas of how we should organise the way we live together.
