Nowhere is patient education more important than in the pediatric setting. Proper education ensures that patients, parents, and caregivers remain active participants in a child's ongoing care. The Pediatric Patient Education Manual provides the pediatric health care professional with patient and practitioner reference materials spanning infancy to adolescence. With the help of an editorial advisory board, materials have been collected from hospitals, individual and group pediatric practices, health departments, home care agencies, and academic settings, as well as extracted from the pediatric literature. The manual contains guidelines, instructions, checklists, and other tools to facilitate pediatric patient education. All chapters are prefaced by a detailed table of contents, separated by tabbed dividers, and comprised of large-print, uncluttered handouts that highlight major concepts and simplify patient teaching.

Wie sich unser Gehirn selbst repariert
Author: Norman Doidge
Publisher: Campus Verlag
Die erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten unseres Gehirns Unser Gehirn ist nicht - wie lange angenommen - eine unveränderliche Hardware. Es kann sich vielmehr auf verblüffende Weise umgestalten und sogar selbst reparieren - und das bis ins hohe Alter. Diese Erkenntnis ist die wohl sensationellste Entdeckung der Neurowissenschaften. "Dr. Doidge, ein hervorragender Psychiater und Forscher, erkundet die Neuroplastizität in Begegnungen mit Pionieren der Forschung und mit Patienten, die von den neuen Möglichkeiten der Rehabilitation profitiert haben. ... Das Buch ist ein absolut außergewöhnliches und hoffnungsvolles Zeugnis der Möglichkeiten des menschlichen Gehirns." Oliver Sacks "...ein faszinierender Abriss der jüngsten Revolution in den Neurowissenschaften!" The New York Times "Das Gehirn ist kein fertig verdrahteter Denkapparat, der im Laufe des Lebens immer weiter verschleißt. Es kann sich umorganisieren, umformen und manchmal kann es sogar wachsen. Der Psychologe Norman Doidge erklärt neueste Ergebnisse der Hirnforschung: Durch einfühlsam geschilderte Beispiele macht er sie für jedermann verständlich und nachvollziehbar." Deutschlandfunk
