  • Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition: DSM-5
Product Description:

This new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research.

The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings—inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care. New features and enhancements make DSM-5 easier to use across all settings: 

  • The chapter organization reflects a lifespan approach, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood (such as neurodevelopmental disorders) at the beginning of the manual, and those more typical of older adults (such as neurocognitive disorders) placed at the end. Also included are age-related factors specific to diagnosis.
  • The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations.
  • The revised organizational structure recognizes symptoms that span multiple diagnostic categories, providing new clinical insight in diagnosis.
  • Specific criteria have been streamlined, consolidated, or clarified to be consistent with clinical practice (including the consolidation of autism disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder into autism spectrum disorder, the streamlined classification of bipolar and depressive disorders, the restructuring of substance use disorders for consistency and clarity, and the enhanced specificity for major and mild neurocognitive disorders).
  • Dimensional assessments for research and validation of clinical results have been provided.
  • Both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes are included for each disorder, and the organizational structure is consistent with the new ICD-11 in development.

 The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists

Your Last Nursing Class: How to Land Your First Nursing Job: The ultimate guide to landing your first nursing job...and your next !
 
Product Description:

Becoming a nurse is a big responsibility. Patients will rely on you to provide them with excellent and professional care. You may be so focused on taking care of others that you forget to take care of yourself.



Nursing professional-development specialist Beth Hawkes noticed this happening with recent nursing graduates. They may have been at the top of their class, but they neglected learning the skills needed to advocate for themselves during the job hunt.



You may have an encyclopedic memory when it comes to medicine, but do you know how to write a catchy cover letter or ace an important interview?



Hawkes will show you how! She covers how to




  • write a professional resume,

  • create an “elevator speech” for taking advantage of an unexpected opportunity,

  • compile application materials when you have no working experience,

  • dodge trick questions in interviews,

  • craft a narrative to show potential employers your unique story,

  • stand out throughout the hiring process, and

  • read a hiring manager’s mind!



Entering the professional world seems like a daunting prospect, but Hawkes uses simple steps to break your job hunt up into manageable milestones. Speak up for yourself, and land the job of your dreams!

    Product Description:

    In his latest bestseller, Atul Gawande shows what the simple idea of the checklist reveals about the complexity of our lives and how we can deal with it.

    The modern world has given us stupendous know-how. Yet avoidable failures continue to plague us in health care, government, the law, the financial industry—in almost every realm of organized activity. And the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of knowledge today has exceeded our ability as individuals to properly deliver it to people—consistently, correctly, safely. We train longer, specialize more, use ever-advancing technologies, and still we fail. Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument that we can do better, using the simplest of methods: the checklist. In riveting stories, he reveals what checklists can do, what they can’t, and how they could bring about striking improvements in a variety of fields, from medicine and disaster recovery to professions and businesses of all kinds. And the insights are making a difference. Already, a simple surgical checklist from the World Health Organization designed by following the ideas described here has been adopted in more than twenty countries as a standard for care and has been heralded as “the biggest clinical invention in thirty years” (The Independent).

    The most trusted source of leadership wisdom, updated to address today's realities

    The Leadership Challenge is the gold-standard manual for effective leadership, grounded in research and written by the premier authorities in the field. With deep insight into the complex interpersonal dynamics of the workplace, this book positions leadership both as a skill to be learned, and as a relationship that must be nurtured to reach its full potential. This new sixth edition has been revised to address current challenges, and includes more international examples and a laser focus on business issues; you'll learn how extraordinary leaders accomplish extraordinary things, and how to develop your leadership skills and style to deliver quality results every time. Engaging stories delve into the fundamental roles that great leaders fulfill, and simple frameworks provide a primer for those who seek continuous improvement; by internalizing key insights and putting concepts into action, you'll become a more effective, more impactful leader.

    A good leader gets things done; a great leader aspires, inspires, and achieves more. This book highlights the differences between good and great, and shows you how to bridge the chasm between getting things done and making things happen.

    • Gain deep insight into leadership's critical role in organizational health
    • Navigate the shift toward team-oriented work relationships
    • Motivate and inspire to break through the pervasive new cynicism
    • Leverage the electronic global village to deliver better results

    Business is evolving at an increasingly rapid rate, and leaders must keep pace with the changes or risk stagnation. People work differently, are motivated differently, and have different expectations today—business as usual is quickly losing its effectiveness. The Leadership Challenge helps you stay current, relevant, and effective in the modern workplace.
