Clinical medicine, as a thinking discipline, is concerned not only with what clinicians do, but why. When physicians act in medicine they have some purpose or goal in mind. What they actually do and how they go about it is in the service of their purposes and their goals. Such goals cover a wide range of topics centering on patients, the doctor-patient relationship, the acts of doctoring patients, and the goals involved in being a physician among other physicians working within the institutions of medicine. The Nature of Clinical Medicine takes its direction from a catalog of goals of medicine that range from the expected diagnosis and treatment of diseases to wider concerns for patients, for physicians, and for medicine itself. The chapters are specific in teaching the kinds of knowledge that clinicians require in order to be able to achieve these goals. The central focus of the clinician and of this book is the patient. According to Eric Cassell, everything else, including the disease, is secondary. Using many examples from real-life medical practice, each chapter examines the different kinds of thought involved in caring for the patient. Cassell takes on a variety of difficult issues, from thinking about values to developing wisdom. The care of the dying, what thinking itself is, and finally, why would one want to do this exciting and rewarding but difficult work, come under discussion in this book.

Daß Stimmungsschwankungen die Beurteilungen des eigenen Lebens beeinflussen können, ist eine Alltagserfahrung. Eine fundierte Analyse zur Rolle emotionaler Zustände in der Urteilsbildung liegt jetzt vor: Der Autor hat verschiedene Ansätze zur Wechselwirkung von Emotion und Kognition gegenübergestellt und in Labor- sowie Feldexperimenten getestet. Die Befunde haben gezeigt, daß Personen bei der Beurteilung ihrer Lebenszufriedenheit ihre momentane Stimmung als Information berücksichtigen und in der gleichen Weise wie eine andere, externe Information verarbeiten. Aus diesem Ergebnis leitet sich ein theoretischer Ansatz für die Wechselwirkung von Kognition und Emotion ab, der die informative Funktion emotionaler Zustände hervorhebt und in die Entwicklung eines Urteilsmodells zum subjektiven Wohlbefinden eingeht. Dieser Band sollte in der Bibliothek von Psychologen, Soziologen und Meinungsforschern stehen.

Peripheral neuropathy affects at least 20 million people in the United States. Nearly 60% of all people with diabetes suffer from peripheral neuropathy. It can be associated with poor nutrition, a number of diseases, and pressure or trauma. Many people suffer from the disorder without ever identifying the cause. Peripheral neuropathy produces symptoms such as weakness, muscle cramps, twitching, pain, numbness, burning, and tingling (often in the feet and hands). Neuropathic pain is often worse at night, seriously disrupting sleep and adding to the emotional burden of sensory nerve damage.Neuropathy does not usually clear up unless the underlying problem is relieved or removed. Controlling a chronic condition may not eliminate neuropathy, but it can play a key role in managing it. Depending on the cause, neuropathy may be relieved by medications, vitamin supplements, physical or occupational therapy, splinting, or surgery.Dr. Babak Baravarian is a podiatric foot and ankle specialist. He is currently a member of UCLA Medical Group, chief of podiatric surgery at Santa Monica/UCLA medical center, and an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA School of Medicine. He also serves as co-director of The Foot and Ankle Institute.

I consider this the most essential of all chiropractic texts, one that all chiropractors should obtain."-- Doody's Review Service Developed as the core textbook for the chiropractic student and as a professional reference, this text presents theory, philosophy, and practice principles of chiropractic.
