Case one: A little girl goes missing in the night. Case two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. Case three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape. Thirty years after the first incident, as private investigator Jackson Brodie begins investigating all three cases, startling connections and discoveries emerge . . .
This volume contains chapters spanning from the role of geochemistry in the environment in general to specific investigations on site characterization (sampling strategy, analytical procedures and problems). Specific articles deal with health problems related to environment pollution, waste disposal, data base management, and provide illustrations of specific case histories of site characterization and remediation of brownfield sites. * Comprehensive analysis providing background information ranging from geochemistry in general to specific investigations * Provides practical insight through case study material * Informs and updates students and practitioners on hot topics, latest trends and developments
The call for case histories was announced in 2014 and 60 submissions were received, describing on an outline basis what was achieved with these ap-plications of e-Learning. There were 36 interesting examples described in these abstracts which were invited to forward a completed case history. The panel of experts then chose 12 case history finalists who were invited to present their work at the 14th annual European Conference on e-Learning at the University of Hertfordshire at Hatfield in the UK in October, 2015. As can be seen from the Contents page, the topics presented range widely, as was expected when working with a subject like e-Learning. It may also be observed that the entrants come from many different parts of the world. The competition requires the 3 best to be chosen and it is clear that the judges will have a challenging task to select the winners.
Case Histories in Business Ethics illustrates and extends the role of case histories in the teaching and study of business ethics. Typically, case histories are used to illustrate assertions or arguments, or to stimulate debate about an issue within business ethics. This volume examines that role, illustrating the link between case histories and more general theoretical approaches to business ethics. It also discusses the role of case histories in engaging the wider cognitive and affective capacities of the student and therefore the development of character.
This volume contains 19 substantial case histories in surface exploration methods used in the oil industry as these have been carried out worldwide. An introductory chapter by Ronald W. Klusman (chemistry, geochemistry, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colo.) describes the interpretation and display of surface geochemical data. The case studies th
Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy is a succinct guide that facilitates a case-based learning approach to cardiopulmonary care. This one-of-a-kind text combines evidence-based assessment and management skills and well-thought-out cases of typical presentations of pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions. This combined approach helps students and clinicians learn meaningful skills in a clinically relevant manner. Two primary components present in Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy are notes on cardiopulmonary assessment and management, and case histories involving respiratory and cardiovascular conditions commonly viewed by physical therapists. Accompanying the notes are thought-provoking questions and problems that enable the reader to establish a foundation of core concepts. The presentation of case histories further facilitates the development of integral skills and enables the reader to integrate those core concepts into a clinical setting. Also, question and answer guides accompany the patient profiles. The two-fold evidence and case based learning approach used by authors W. Darlene Reid, BMR(PT), PhD and Frank Chung, BSc(PT), MSc allows for a more engaging experience. Students are able to learn and develop skills to prepare them for their professional transition while clinicians can use the text as a reference tool. A Few of the Cardiopulmonary Assessment Topics: Physical Examinations Chest Radiology Pulmonary Function Testing EKG Interpretation A Few of the Cardiopulmonary Management Topics: Clinical Decision Making and Setting Treatment Goals Mobilization and Exercise Training Breathing Exercises Medical and Surgical Interventions Case Histories Include: Brief history Description of physical presentation Arterial blood values, chest x-rays, EKG results and/or pulmonary function report

Oxford Case Histories in Oncology contains 30 well-structured cases from clinical practice, giving a comprehensive coverage of the diagnostic and management dilemmas in oncology. The cases cover a wide spectrum of oncology including rare presentations and clinical problems of common cancers. Each case comprises a brief clinical history with relevant clinical examination findings. Questions are based on clinical investigations and aspects of management. Detailed answers are based on the best available evidence from the latest research, systematic reviews, meta-analysis and guidelines from national and international academic bodies. The text is complimented by over 50 illustrations, including radiographic images and radiotherapy treatment plans. The format of this book is thought provoking, and it helps to improve critical thinking and interpretative skills. It is a perfect self-assessment tool for oncology and palliative medicine trainees and consultants, and will be useful for those preparing for exit examinations in oncology. It will also be of interest to non-specialist readers who wish to improve their skills in the diagnosis and management of a broad range of cancers.
Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees, Oxford Case Histories in Anaesthesia contains over 60 clinical cases compiled by expert consultants. The cases comprehensively cover all sub-specialties and a broad range of variations that occur in normal and abnormal physiology, pharmacology and pathology, as well as patient age. The cases have been selected with reference to the revised Curriculum for a Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Each case begins with clear learning outcomes and is mapped to the CCT matrix, greatly aiding those revising for the Final FRCA examination. The cases are presented with a background to the subject area, and a summary of the history and examination findings with relevant investigation results. This is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the case with answers and detailed discussion, particularly of the differential management options. Further reading at the end of each case aids future study. As well as those preparing for the Final FRCA, this book will also be of interest for post-fellowship trainees on specialty attachments and those who occasionally have to anaesthetize out with their normal field of practice, for example in subspecialty emergencies or whilst awaiting retrieval teams to arrive for transfer to tertiary care centres.
