Safe and effective prescribing is one of the pillars of medical practice but is much more complicated than it seems. Many new prescribers find prescribing extremely challenging, and a plethora of independent, multidisciplinary prescribers are also seeking guidance. However, pharmacology textbooks are rarely practical. They warn to 'take care when prescribing erythromycin to a patient on warfarin, as the INR may rise'. But what should the prescriber actually do? Surviving Prescribing fulfils an important need by offering practical advice for real-world prescribing problems. The book complements existing educational resources but adds a new perspective. Written by experienced contributors from a variety of professional backgrounds, the content speaks directly to the problems routinely seen in hospital prescribing. And all in one, pocket-sized volume. Whether revising for the national Prescribing Safety Assessment, preparing for starting on the wards, or looking for a quick reference guide, this book is an essential companion.

The higher education policies across the globe emphasised the need for strong leadership and good governance, significant investments, public-private partnerships, and industry cooperation to achieve economic growth and a competitive edge. The book brings together overviews and country-level work on six major economic and institutional challenges to policy makers: (1) governance of health education organisations and systems, (2) approaches to financing the education of health workers, (3) the special nature of capital investment in expanding the capacity of health education institutions; (4) equity in accessing health education, with a special focus on issues arising fin private approaches to health worker education; (5) public-private partnerships, and (6) the role of technology as a game changer in health worker education and possibilities for leapfrogging. Based on World Bank research, the book provides an assessment of the resource envelope likely to be available to the health and education sectors by 2015 in Sub-Saharan Africa. Also discussed are some of the international regional efforts to align, transregional standards and to raise the quality of higher education to fill contemporary needs. The authors discuss new or overlooked issues related to scaling up health education such as capital investment, health education financing, and the role of the private sector. In many countries, the binding constraint to scaling up health education is not only the sector's limited absorptive capacity to hire the trained personnel but also its limited resources to devote to training and needed capital investments to expand of institutional capacity to train more graduates. In a number of countries, the cost of educating the additional health workforce would outstrip the annual higher education budgets of the Ministries of Education. Furthermore, many countries trying to scale up health education also need to consider parallel measures to ensure that the secondary education system produces enough graduates to feed a scaling up of health education. The authors present in-depth case studies of five Sub-Saharan countries' health human resources strategies with a focus on education.
Recent surveys of medical students reveal stark conditions: more than a quarter have experienced episodes of depression during their medical school and residency careers, a figure much higher than that of the general population. Compounded by long hours of intellectually challenging, physically taxing, and emotionally exhausting work, medical school has been called one of the most harrowing experiences a student can encounter. Plumbing the diaries, memoirs, and blogs of physicians-in-training, Suzanne Poirier's Doctors in the Making illuminates not just the process by which students become doctors but also the physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences of the process. Through close readings of these accounts, Poirier draws attention to the complex nature of power in medicine, the rewards and hazards of professional and interpersonal relationships in all aspects of physicians' lives, and the benefits to and threats from the vulnerability that medical students and residents experience. Although most students emerge from medical education as well-trained, well-prepared professionals, few of them will claim that they survived the process unscathed. The authors of these accounts document - for better or for worse - the ways in which they have been changed. Based on their stories, Poirier recommends that medical education should make room for the central importance of personal relationships, the profound sense of isolation and powerlessness that can threaten the wellbeing of patients and physicians alike, and the physical and moral vulnerability that are part of every physician's life.
