Since the first edition of HIV and AIDS Education, Care and Counselling was published almost 20 years ago, it has become the standard handbook in Africa for thousands of HIV and AIDS practitioners. However, ongoing HIV and AIDS research requires regular revisions to the handbook for it to remain current with developments in prevention and treatment. Consequently, this new edition has been updated with input from two new specialist co-authors. This has strengthened the multicultural and multidisciplinary approach of this edition to Africa's unique challenges. Key features: A new design that improves readability and accessibility; In situ definitions and explanations of key terms and concepts; An updated glossary of important HIV and AIDS terminology; and Terminology, Frequently Asked Questions and Enrichment boxes that provide insight into specific aspects of HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment. Key updates: This edition includes a wealth of new information for healthcare practitioners on nursing care principles covering co-infections and complications of HIV infection and ART; infection control; and management of TB, drug-resistant TB, STIs and comorbidities. Specifically, the sixth edition includes: The latest ARV protocols in South Africa; The WHO's best practice suggestions; ART treatment as prevention; HIV, TB and STI prevention and management for schoolchildren, aligned with the Department of Basic Education's Life Skills and Life Orientation criteria; Development of children and adolescents from traditional, communal or collectivistic backgrounds; and The Dual Process Model (DPM), focusing on the latest research in bereavement counselling.

Departmentalising medicine has produced many specialities. This development is both essential and inevitable if progress is pursued. In the surgical field, at least ten disciplines have developed. Although these disciplines are very different in nature and practice, a large common ground binds them together: this title is about these common basic principles, which should form the core knowledge of all surgeons regardless of speciality. As in the past, the subjects covered in the intermediate examinations of the College of medicine of South Africa and the Universities offering Master in Surgery Degrees (Mmed) are represented. This material covers the principles of managing emergency situations across the different surgical disciplines, including intensive care, infections and trauma.

Psychiatric disorders are important causes of disability and in developing countries healthcare workers at the primary level are increasingly required to deal with a wide range of psychological problems and psychiatric disorders. Primary Care Psychiatry aims to equip these workers with the basic information they need to identify and manage most of these problems, and offers guidelines on when and how to refer to more specialised levels of care. Now in its second edition, this well-respected text has been updated to include the latest diagnostic criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5 (TM)). The text follows a problem-based approach, is intended to be practical and accessible, and avoids academic jargon as much as possible. Ample use is made of case vignettes, personal accounts, tables, algorithms and summaries. It enables the reader to quickly grasp the core features of the problem and the priorities of management. The emphasis is on what is relevant to primary healthcare psychiatry in the southern African context, addressing the particular challenges faced by a developing and transforming society with limited financial resources.

    'You, the reader, whoever you are, are not a complete novice in ethics. You understand the meaning of 'good' and 'bad' and 'right' and 'wrong' and you know that some actions are right while others are wrong and that some things are good while others are bad. These aspects are precisely what ethics as a subject of systematic study deals with' (Ewing: 1995). Ethics in Healthcare approaches the topic of ethics from the perspective of the nurse and offers a viewpoint on the many ethical questions he or she has to deal with every day. This established and accessible text takes a fresh look at the question of cultural diversity and explains why the profession of nursing has to adhere to a common value system. A brand new chapter covering the teaching of ethics has been added to explore the question of the moral development of the student.

    Sociology will always remain a dynamic and living science due to its roots in the study of the human condition with reference to human action and interaction. Nursing sociology aims to under¬stand society and how individuals function within it, within the health sector and specifically within the current nursing scenario, in order to provide holistic patient care.

    Nursing sociology is written from a multicultural perspective, reflecting on South Africa’s diversity and explaining complex sociological ideas in a way that is easy to follow. In this 6th edition, substantial attention has been given to aspects of socialisation, social interaction, structure and relationships, social stratification, group dynamics, institutions, organisations and social problems encountered in nursing practice.

    Pertinent examples of the manifestation of sociology in the nursing profession and its practice as currently experienced in South Africa are also included. Activities allow students to debate issues arising from sociology in the nursing context in group format in order to promote creative thinking and comprehension.

    Nursing sociology provides students with a clear, easy-to-understand sociological text specifically oriented towards nursing, that emphasises specific aspects and creativity within the nursing environment.

    Supervision is a critical aspect of a nurse’s training: nurses must be supervised to ensure that they practise within their legal, ethical and professional framework. The supervisor therefore plays a major role in overseeing quality nursing care and maintaining professional conduct.

    Key features:

    • The role of the nurse supervisor is clearly defined so that disciplinary action can be avoided.
    • Case studies give examples of some of the potential pitfalls in nursing supervision, so that the supervisor can learn from the experience of others.
    • Includes well-designed checklists that can be used in practice so that essential supervisory details are not forgotten.
    Every nurse practitioner can play a significant role in ensuring quality service delivery. This requires continuous professional development so that practitioners remain up-to-date with relevant legislation and trends.

    This well-written text should become every supervisor’s handbook.
