Modern health care cannot exist without professional nurses. Throughout the twentieth century, there was seldom a sustained period when the supply of nurses was equal to demand. Nursing the Nation offers a historical analysis of the relationship between the development of nurse employment arrangements with patients and institutions and the appearance of nurse shortages from 1890 to 1950. The response to nursing supply and demand problems by health care institutions and policy-making organizations failed to address nurse workforce issues adequately, and this failure resulted in, at times, profound and lengthy nurse shortages. Nurses also lost the ability to control their own destiny within health care institutions while nevertheless establishing themselves as the most critical part of health care provision today.
Nursing has a not-so-secret problem. The profession is prone to—some would say thrives on—workplace conflict, incivility, bullying, and meanness. And while nurses observe and experience this conflict daily, too few have been trained in its resolution. Toxic Nursing aims to change that with strategies, tools, and techniques to help nurse leaders, managers, and administrators defuse conflict, turn around toxic situations, and create positive, healthy work environments.Written by Cheryl Dellasega—author of the groundbreaking books Surviving Ophelia and Mean Girls Grown Up—Toxic Nursing explores the reasons behind toxic behavior and its impact on not just the workplace but patient safety.
The work at hand deals with restorative dental materials that are being used for the treatment of the most common dental disease – dental caries (but for treatment of cuneiform erosions as well). The materials this work talks about are dental amalgams (metallic dental restorative material), dental resin composites, and glass-ionomer cements. This work looks at these materials from the perspective of their physical and chemical properties that influence the clinical efficiency of these materials (the quality of restorations).
