When We Do Harm: A Doctor Confronts Medical Error Audiobook

When We Do Harm: A Doctor Confronts Medical Error

Author: Md Danielle Ofri Narrator: Ann M. Richardson Release Date: April 2020

Medical mistakes are more pervasive than we think. How can we improve outcomes? An acclaimed MD's rich stories and research explore patient safety. Patients enter the medical system with faith that they will receive the best care possible, so when things go wrong, it's a profound and painful breach. Medical science has made enormous strides in decreasing mortality and suffering, but there's no doubt that treatment can also cause harm, a significant portion of which is preventable. In When We Do Harm, practicing physician and acclaimed author Danielle Ofri places the issues of medical error and patient safety front and center in our national healthcare conversation. Drawing on current research, professional experience, and extensive interviews with nurses, physicians, administrators, researchers, patients, and families, Dr. Ofri explores the diagnostic, systemic, and cognitive causes of medical error. She advocates for strategic use of concrete safety interventions such as checklists and improvements to the electronic medical record, but focuses on the full-scale cultural and cognitive shifts required to make a meaningful dent in medical error. Woven throughout the book are the powerfully human stories that Dr. Ofri is renowned for. The errors she dissects range from the hardly noticeable missteps to the harrowing medical cataclysms. While our healthcare system is--and always will be--imperfect, Dr. Ofri argues that it is possible to minimize preventable harms, and that this should be the galvanizing issue of current medical discourse.

Administrations of Lunacy: Racism and the Haunting of American Psychiatry at the Milledgeville Asylu Audiobook

Administrations of Lunacy: Racism and the Haunting of American Psychiatry at the Milledgeville Asylu

Author: Mab Segrest Narrator: Hillary Huber Release Date: April 2020

Today, ninety percent of psychiatric beds are located in jails and prisons across the United States, institutions that confine disproportionate numbers of African Americans. After more than a decade of research, the celebrated scholar and activist Mab Segrest locates the deep historical roots of this startling fact, turning her sights on a long-forgotten cauldron of racial ideology: the state mental asylum system in which psychiatry was born and whose influences extend into our troubled present. In December 1841, the Georgia State Lunatic, Idiot, and Epileptic Asylum was founded. A hundred years later, it had become the largest insane asylum in the world with over ten thousand patients. Administrations of Lunacy tells the story of this iconic and infamous southern institution, a history that was all but erased from popular memory and within the psychiatric profession. Through riveting accounts of historical characters, Segrest reveals how modern psychiatric practice was forged in the traumas of slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Jim Crow. Deftly connecting this history to the modern era, Segrest then shows how a single asylum helped set the stage for the eugenics theories of the twentieth century and the persistent racial ideologies of our own times. She also traces the connections to today's dissident psychiatric practices that offer sanity and create justice. A landmark of scholarship, Administrations of Lunacy restores a vital thread between past and present, revealing the tangled racial roots of psychiatry in America.

Anxiety & Phobia Crushed: The Summarized Approach to Combat Anxiety and Regain your Life Audiobook

Anxiety & Phobia Crushed: The Summarized Approach to Combat Anxiety and Regain your Life

Author: Dr. Dale Pheragh Narrator: Michael Borge Release Date: April 2020

There’s a new and faster way for anxiety relief, but few have ever heard it. Most people are advised to either “manage” their anxiety or medicate it. If you’re tired of just managing your anxiety and want a powerful natural solution, then apply the strategies explained in Dr. Dale Pheragh's book. If you're seeking a lasting anxiety relief from out-of-control anxiety and panic, this is the book for you. It is grounded in cognitive behaviour therapy; the proven treatment approach developed and tested. The author Dr. Dale Pheragh put the tools and techniques of cognitive behaviour therapy at your fingertips in this counterintuitive guide. Learn practical strategies for identifying your anxiety attack triggers, challenging the thoughts and beliefs that lead to distress, safely facing the situations you fear, and truly loosening anxiety's grip--one manageable step at a time. Most people who suffer from anxiety and panic attacks are told by their well-meaning friends, doctors, therapists, and psychiatrists to 'manage' their anxiety. Some are prescribed pills to calm their anxiety down. Breathing techniques, mindfulness, and more many others. Anxiety and panic attacks require a different strategy, a counterintuitive and fail-proof one. Left uncontrolled, anxiety tends to grow more because our amygdala (the anxiety centre of our brain) becomes hyperactive and makes worried. This book will uncover science-based and counterintuitive techniques that are designed to end unwanted anxiety and to stop panic attacks. They have been tried and tested both by the author Dr. Dale Pheragh (who suffered from generalized anxiety and panic attacks for a few decades) and the thousands of people who suffered from anxiety he has helped ever since. This is a book like no other!

In a question-and-answer format, it unpacks the most complicated aspects of this issue, including: How antibiotics are used (and overused) in humans, plants, and livestock; the causes and consequences of bacterial resistance to antibiotics; how the globalized world enables antibiotic resistance to spread quickly; and the difficult decisions ahead for both medical care and the food system. Grounded in the latest scientific research and crafted for general readers, Antibiotics: What Everyone Needs to Know offers a clear-eyed overview of where we are, and what the future holds, as antibiotics lose their power.

Pale Rider: The Spanish Flu of 1918 and How it Changed the World Audiobook

Pale Rider: The Spanish Flu of 1918 and How it Changed the World

Author: Laura Spinney Narrator: Paul Hodgson Release Date: April 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. With a death toll of between 50 and 100 million people and a global reach, the Spanish flu of 1918–1920 was the greatest human disaster, not only of the twentieth century, but possibly in all of recorded history. And yet, in our popular conception it exists largely as a footnote to World War I. In Pale Rider, Laura Spinney recounts the story of an overlooked pandemic, tracing it from Alaska to Brazil, from Persia to Spain, and from South Africa to Odessa. She shows how the pandemic was shaped by the interaction of a virus and the humans it encountered; and how this devastating natural experiment put both the ingenuity and the vulnerability of humans to the test. Laura Spinney demonstrates that the Spanish flu was as significant – if not more so – as two world wars in shaping the modern world; in disrupting, and often permanently altering, global politics, race relations, family structures, and thinking across medicine, religion and the arts. 'Both a saga of tragedies and a detective story... Pale Rider is not just an excavation but a reimagining of the past' Guardian (C) Laura Spinney 2017 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
