• Dit boek focust op de integratie van kennis om het optimaal functioneren van mensen met dementie te bevorderen, geheel in de geest van het Deltaplan Dementie.Kernpunt is steeds: om de kwaliteit van het leven te optimaliseren zijn erkenning van de individuele behoeften, wensen en mogelijkheden een voorwaarde naast een maximum aan respect voor de persoon met dementie.
    In de eerste vier hoofdstukken: de diagnostiek, de symptomen en de medicamenteuze behandeling van de aandoening en de non-medicamenteuze behandeling.Vervolgens beschrijven vier hoofdstukken heel concreet welke zorg er mogelijk is vanuit functioneel perspectief: -     basiszorg, -     omgevingsstrategieën in de verschillende stadia van dementie, -     activeringsstrategieën, -     reactivering met en zonder technologische hulpmiddelen.Tenslotte komen in tien hoofdstukken alle mogelijke vormen van begeleiding aan de orde om te helpen leren omgaan met de gevolgen van dementie en emotioneel in evenwicht te blijven. De persoon met dementie moet alle steun krijgen bij het vinden van steeds een andere balans tussen behoud van regie en afhankelijkheid:- wat zijn nog zinvolle en haalbare bezigheden? - hoe help je hem/haar een positief zelfbeeld te behouden?- wat kan helpen om in contact te blijven met familie en vrienden?-      wat zijn wensen voor toekomstige behandeling bij voortschrijding van de ziekte?

  • « N´est-il pas sujet plus exaltant pour un homme que la femme? La femme admirée, crainte, observée, désirée, charmée?

  • - Max, Max, réponds nom d´un chien ! Johan appelait son pote plus pour se rassurer que dans l´attente d´une réponse et tentait ainsi de reculer le plus possible l´inéluctable réalité... Toujours pas de réponse. Ne restait plus qu´une pièce dont la porte était fermée. La chambre. Il hésita une fraction de seconde, se gratta la tête, puis sans plus attendre, décida qu´il était temps, quoi qu´il se tramât derrière cette porte, de l´ouvrir et de pénétrer dans la pièce. Il entra donc et ne fut pas surpris de trouver Max sur le lit, allongé sur le dos. Il paraissait dormir, mais à mieux y regarder, il constata qu´il ne respirait pas. Habillé comme s´il allait sortir, Max ne semblait pas avoir souffert lors de son dernier voyage... Au contraire, il avait l´air de quelqu´un voulant faire une dernière blague. Une blague un peu lourde comme il aimait les faire ; une de ces blagues qu´il affectionnait mais dont le principal défaut était de manquer de finesse, de subtilité... Max était parti, avec un petit sourire - un rictus ? - qui lui donnait l´air de dire à celui qui le découvrirait : « Je t´ai bien eu ! ». Appelé à enquêter sur la mort de Max, Rémi Dutel, inspecteur de police, est persuadé qu´il va boucler rapidement cette affaire qui lui semble somme toute banale. C´est sans compter sur la découverte d´un tueur en série dont les agissements ressemblent à s´y méprendre à ceux d´un justicier. Devancé à plusieurs reprises par le vengeur, Rémi parviendra-t-il enfin à stopper le tueur fou et à élucider du même coup la mort de Max ? Le coupable est-il toujours celui que l´on croit ?

  • Tinnitus - the perception of sound in the ear, in the absence of external sound - affects around 250 million people worldwide. It occurs in adults as well as in children, in war veterans and factory workers, in classical musicians, rockstars, and disc jockeys. Consequently, a history of recreational, occupational, and firearm noise exposure may all be associated with an increased likelihood of acquiring tinnitus.
    Being a subjective phenomenon, tinnitus is difficult to measure, though, in the past decade, it has become the subject of intensive scientific research. Research in neuroscience has revealed how tinnitus is generated by the brain when hearing loss occurs, and this research has played a part in helping us understand the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of this disorder.

    The Neuroscience of Tinnitus reviews our current knowledge of the neural substrates of tinnitus. It draws heavily on the author's own extensive work in this field, and is divided into two parts, the first focusing on human models, the second on animal models. The book describes the search for the neural mechanisms that underlie the amplification process resulting in tinnitus, and ways to manage its maladaptive side effects. Based on over 1000 references and the author's own experience, both of tinnitus and the research into its mechanisms, this book is the most comprehensive single-author book on the market. It is a valuable reference source for auditory neuroscientists, and also to those in the fields of audiology, psychology, neurology, and otolaryngology.

  • The concept of rationality is a common thread through the human and social sciences - from political science to philosophy, from economics to sociology, and from management science to decision analysis. But what counts as rational action and rational behavior?

    José Luis Bermùdez explores decision theory as a theory of rationality. Decision theory is the mathematical theory of choice and for many social scientists it makes the concept of rationality mathematically tractable and scientifically legitimate.

    Yet rationality is a concept with several dimensions and the theory of rationality has different roles to play. It plays an action-guiding role (prescribing what counts as a rational solution of a given decision problem). It plays a normative role (giving us the tools to pass judgment not just on how a decision problem was solved, but also on how it was set up in the first place). And it plays a predictive/explanatory role (telling us how rational agents will behave, or why they did what they did).

    This controversial but accessible book shows that decision theory cannot play all of these roles simultaneously. And yet, it argues, no theory of rationality can play one role without playing the other two. The conclusion is that there is no hope of taking decision theory as a theory of rationality.

  • At different stages of life, we approach work with varying levels of energy, drive and perspective.
    Many people feel unfulfilled in their work, or feel their work-life balance is hopelessly wrong. Jos van der Brug's readable and informal book helps the reader to understand why and how our working lives evolve at different ages and provides helpful tips for cooperation and leadership within a team of diverse members. In-depth case studies also offer insight into the impact our professional lives can have upon our personal lives, and vice versa.
    If both employees and employers could better understand the fluidity of our relationship to work throughout life, it would lead to improved work-life balance and personal fulfilment.

  • José L. Zalabardo presents a new account of central ideas in Wittgensteins Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus on the structure of reality and our representations of it in thought and language.

  • Auditory temporal processing determines our understanding of speech, our appreciation of music, our ability to localize a sound source, and even to listen to a person in a noisy crowd. Sound is dynamic and as such has temporal and spectral content. In disorders such as auditory neuropathy and MS, problems can occur with these temporal representations of sound, leading to a mismatch between auditory sensitivity and speech discrimination. In dyslexia, specific language impairment, and auditory processing disorders, similar problems occur early in life and set up additional cognitive speech processing problems. It has also been found that in disorders such as autism,schizophrenia and epilepsy, temporal processing deficits can occur.This book reviews comprehensively the mechanisms for temporal processing in the auditory system, looking at how these underlie specific clinical disorders, with implications for their treatment. Written by a prolific researcher in auditory neuroscience, this book is valuable for auditory neuroscientists, audiologist, neurologists, and speech language pathologists.

  • The first book was on "Theory and Practice" of antibiotic stewardship in its broadest sense -the how to do it and the do's and don'ts. The second, on "Controlling resistance" was very much on the relationships between use and resistance and beginning to home in on the hospital as the main generator of resistance, but mainly looking at it from a disease/clinical perspective. The last 3 chapters on MRSA, ended where the 3rd book will take off. "Controlling HAI " will concentrate on specific MDR organisms highlighting their roles in the current pandemic of HAI and emphasizing that the big issue is not so much infection control but antibiotic control, in the same way that antibiotic over-reliance/ over-use has caused the problem in the first place. Up 'till now the emphasis for controlling MRSA, C diff and all the other MDROs has very much been on IC, which clearly isn't working. This book will gather all the evidence for the increasingly popular view that much more must be done in the area of antibiotic policies/ stewardship, especially when we are in danger of a "post antibiotic" era, due to a real shortage of new agents in the pipeline.

  • Un homme de quatre-vingts ans parle et son petit-fils l'écoute. Il ne raconte pas sa vie de A à Z, il ne la déroule pas comme un fil. Pas d'attendrissement sur le passé. Mais il parle et s'inscrivent dans ses mots un espace, un pays, des hommes, leur travail, leurs rêves et leurs espoirs. Un espace : celui, immense, délimité par le fleuve Saint-Laurent : 20 kilomètres de large à cet endroit. Du village de Kamouraska, on voit, en face, la rive nord si nettement qu'on distingue un homme en train de labourer. A l'horizon la chaîne des Laurentides et le vieux plateau hercynien du Grand Nord qui commence. Le village vit au rythme des marées du fleuve et du cabotage de ses goélettes. Les terres fertiles, partagées au fur et à mesure des arrivées, en « rangs » de colonisation, s'adossent à la forêt. Derrière la forêt, au Sud, les Etats-Unis. Et l'hiver, la chape de neige, les froids de - 40° et le fleuve gelé. Les hommes : les « habitants », canadiens-français, Québécois, dont les ancêtres ont gagné rang par rang des terres qui pour la plupart d'entre eux ne peuvent suffire à les faire vivre. Monde paysan abandonné un jour de 1763 sur cette rive, qui se survit, avec sa culture propre, son économie propre, ses techniques propres, quitte à s'en inventer de nouvelles au besoin. Monde à l'écart de la société dominante anglophone, qui règne plus loin que Québec, vers Montréal, à des centaines de kilomètres. Monde étouffé par les castes sociales, par le paternalisme des dirigeants provinciaux, par la toute-puissance de l'Eglise, indispensable médiatrice et ultime recours. Paysans fascinés par l'appel du travail plus facile de l'autre côté de la frontière, aux Etats-Unis, plus tard attirés, comme Joseph Michaud, par les « shops » de Montréal, où il fait l'apprentissage du syndicalisme. Pas de folklore, donc, dans ce texte : ce que Jos-Phydime Michaud a confié à son petit-fils, Fernand Archambault, c'est la description sans complaisance d'une société écrasée par l'obsession de se survivre, qui y parvient envers et contre tout, la lutte d'hommes écartés de l'Histoire pendant deux siècles.
