Clinical Guidelines for Advanced Practice Nursing: An Interdisciplinary Approach, Third Edition is an accessible and practical reference designed to help nurses and students with daily clinical decision making. Written in collaboration with certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, pharmacists, and physicians, it fosters a team approach to health care. Divided into four areas—Pediatrics, Gynecology, Obstetrics, and, Adult General Medicine—and following a lifespan approach, it utilizes the S-O-A-P (Subjective-Objective-Assessment-Plan) format. Additionally, the authors explore complex chronic disease management, health promotion across the lifespan, and professional and legal issues such as reimbursement, billing, and the legal scope of practice. The Third Edition has a keen focus on gerontology to accommodate the AGNP specialty and to better assist the student or clinician in caring for the aging population. The authors follow the across the life span approach and focus on common complete disorders. Certain chapters have been revised and new chapters have been added which include:Health Maintenance for Older Adults; Frailty; Common Gerontology Syndromes; Cancer Survivorship; Lipid Disorders; Acne (pediatrics section). Please note that the 2016 CDC Guidelines for prescribing opioids for chronic pain in the United States were not yet available at the time the authors were updating the Third Edition. See the Instructor Resources tab to read a note from the authors about their recommendations for resources around these guidelines.

The current volume, featuring 28 contributions from cutting-edge researchers, emphasizes uses, purposes, origins, and consequences of nonverbal communication in the lives of individuals, dyads, and groups - in other words, the behaviour of human beings. As such, the volume as a whole is not just about communication systems per se nor the impact on humans of the physical environment, whether built or natural. Instead, the volume focuses on humans engaging in nonverbal communication and the communicative and psychological aspects of this behaviour. Nonverbal behaviour is an inclusive category and includes all emitted nonverbal behaviour that may be subject to interpretation by others, whether the behaviour is intentionally produced or not. This panoramic volume, edited by two of the world's leading authorities on nonverbal communication, contains 28 essays presenting the state of the art in the domain of nonverbal behaviour study.

Life of Christ
Author: Fulton J. Sheen
Widely proclaimed a classic work of Christian faith, Life of Christ has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton J. Sheen’s many books. The fruit of many years of reflection, prayer, and research, it is a dramatic and moving recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, and a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and most of all the Savior, whose promise has sustained humanity for two millennia. With his customary insight and reverance, Sheen interprets the scripture and describes Christ, not only in historical perspective, but also in exciting and contemporary terms, seeing in Christ’s life both modern parallels and timeless lessons. His thoughtful, probing analysis provides new insight into well-known Gospel events. An appealing blend of philosophy, history, and Biblical exegesis, from the best-known and most-loved American Catholic leader of the twentieth century, Life of Christ has long been a source of inspiration and guidance. For those seeking to better understand the message of Jesus Christ, this vivid retelling of the greatest story ever lived is a must read.

Problem-based learning is incresingly favoured for teaching and learning in medical schools: this thoroughly up-to-date text continues to address that need.
Como él mismo Mañach señala, Perfil de nuestras letras surgió de una sugerencia de la dirección del periódico, para que comenzase a redactar una serie de artículos en los cuales desarrollara algún tema continuo. Entre febrero de 1947 y octubre de 1948 publicó 34 trabajos, que siempre salían en la edición dominical y en la página de Opinión (esto último solo se alteró en una ocasión). Al cabo de casi ocho años, en mayo de 1956 decidió continuar la serie «por algún tiempo más». Lo hizo hasta comienzos de agosto de ese año. En esta segunda entrega, la serie mantuvo el espacio dominical hasta fines de junio, cuando pasó a salir indistintamente miércoles, jueves o viernes. Asimismo desde mayo redujo el nombre a Nuestras letras. Varios de los libros publicados en vida por Jorge Mañach (Sagua la Grande, Cuba, 1898-San Juan, Puerto Rico, 1961) fueron armados a partir de material periodístico: Glosario (1924), Estampas de San Cristóbal (1926), Pasado vigente (1939), Visitas españolas: Lugares, personas (1959). Fue esa la faceta con que se dio a conocer en 1923, en los periódicos El País y Diario de la Marina. También fue la que hizo de él un hombre no solo admirado y leído, sino también influyente en la esfera social. Ese oficio de escribir para el público día a día, solo lo aparcó durante los años en los cuales residió y trabajó como profesor en Estados Unidos (1935-1939) y, luego, al regresar a Cuba, en los primeros años de la década de los cuarenta, cuando «por idealismo», como él mismo reconoció, se incorporó a la actividad política. Pero a partir de 1945, volvió al diarismo en la Revista Bohemia y en el Diario de la Marina. En este último medio retomó su célebre columna Glosas, que después pasó a llamarse Relieves. En ambas publicaciones se mantuvo colaborando hasta fines de 1959. Es decir, prácticamente hasta su salida del país.
