New chapters cover robotic arthroplasty and strategies in total knee arthroplasty, along with a collection of more unusual cases, enabling the reader to develop their confidence in dealing with a range of clinical scenarios.

It represents a timely and valuable resource for both trainee orthopaedic specialists, and practising surgeons who seek to develop a deeper understanding of how to approach treating their patients.

Digital Health Promotion A Critical Introduction

Digital Health Promotion A Critical Introduction

Author: Ivy O'Neil Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/08/2019

Searching the internet for health information or using health apps on mobile devices has become part of our daily routine, yet can be just as disempowering as empowering. This engaging overview critically examines the theoretical underpinning of digital health promotion and the use of digital tools and strategies to promote health. Ivy O'Neil investigates how modern technologies can enhance health services provision and increase the accessibility and efficiency of health communication and promotion. She also looks at the challenges they bring to the social model of health: while eHealth initiatives and your health app may be useful tools, they often focus on the individual and neglect the many social, environmental and economic determinants of health. Digital technologies, O'Neil argues, can have negative as well as positive implications and may be contributing to the ever-widening health inequality gap, thereby failing to be compatible with health promotion principles and values. Offering critical, practical and thoughtful overview of the application and usefulness of digital technology in promoting health and reducing the health inequality gap, this book will appeal to students of public health and health promotion, communication and policy.

The Unofficial Guide to Getting Into Medical School

The Unofficial Guide to Getting Into Medical School

Author: Bogdan Chiva Giurca Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/07/2019

Medicine is arguably the most competitive university degree to apply for, with up to 20 applications per place, and that's only counting those that think they are good enough, not the 100s more that want to apply but don't know how. This book is unique in that it is based on real data from over 300 surveys and focus groups of successful medical students from over 32 medical schools, as well as live data from those currently applying for medical school, encapsulating their current anxieties and top tips (first book of its kind). The book starts by exploring motivations for entering medicine, so that the potential applicant is aware of the reality of the rewards and drawbacks of the profession. We then go on to describe essential concepts and knowledge required to understand the profession and appear knowledgeable in the interview. Next, an in depth focus on the application process, including work experience, personal statements, entrance exams, and interviews. Finally, we provide additional guidance for international students, mature students, and those applying having not been successful the first time. This is all part of the award winning Unofficial Guide to Medicine series, where over 50,000 books are used worldwide to help students through medical school, with recognition from the British Medical Association, the Association for the Study of Medical Education, and the Academy of Medical Education and other leading institutions.
