Despite diagnosis being the key feature of a physician's clinical performance, this is the first book that deals specifically with the topic. In recent years, however, considerable interest has been shown in this area and significant developments have occurred in two main areas: a) an awareness and increasing understanding of the critical role of clinical decision making in the process of diagnosis, and of the multiple factors that impact it, and b) a similar appreciation of the role of the healthcare system in supporting clinicians in their efforts to make accurate diagnoses. Although medicine has seen major gains in knowledge and technology over the last few decades, there is a consensus that the diagnostic failure rate remains in the order of 10-15%. This book provides an overview of the major issues in this area, in particular focusing on where the diagnostic process fails, and where improvements might be made.

Why the view from Here "is essential reading for every engineering student or young graduate.”<br />You’re studying engineering at college or a newly graduated engineer ready to give it your all but you have way more questions than answers. You’re not interested in war stories or another speech about ‘back in the day’ but you are<br />looking to a respected colleague for advice presented in such a way that you can take action. You’re looking for a mentor who is close enough in age to be connected to you but who’s senior enough to have demonstrated success in the<br />past by practicing what they preach. You’re looking for guidance that speaks to the challenges you face; in entering the workforce, in making sense of engineering and understanding what it takes to get ahead… Look no further as your search is over. The View From Here is a book written with all of these issues and more<br />in mind.<br /><br />Young Engineer of the Year Reece Lumsden offers frank guidance on navigating the early years of your engineering career through a combination<br />of personal accounts and meticulously researched facts. Written in an open and conversational style that is action oriented and easy to understand, Reece approaches engineering holistically and from a variety of vantage points rather than through a single, technically focused myopia. With over 70 quick and easy exercises that help you build your skills, you can start using what you learn right away!<br /><br />If you are looking to optimize your engineering career today, this very instant, then The View From Here is indispensable.

In the quest of designing the society to maximize wealth creation from the dynamics of Technology, Innovation and Policy, this publication is a compilation of opinion articles on pertinent issues. Although most of the articles have reference to Bangladesh and other developing nations, but views shared on issues have broader applicability across the world. <br /><br />Creating new wealth out of technology and innovation has been the only opportunity for us to create growing wealth out of depleting resources of this planet--to meet the increasing consumption of fellow human beings. Although we admire innovators and inventors for the success of innovation, but hardly we analyze diverse policies issues, apart from the policy of S&T education and R&D investment, affecting the innovation journey. Technology and Innovation do not work in isolation of broader underlying policies, guiding the society at various levels--eventually shaping the possibility of wealth creation and growth. Rather there is a strong interdependent dynamics between them, determining our new wealth creation ability through technology and innovation. This publication shares views on technology, innovation and policy issues to create new possibilities to address the development agenda faced by the human race, particularly developing nations. These views are outcomes of a long journey--in the quest of knowing answers of some critical questions, baffling many bright minds--to figure out the interplay between technology, innovation and policy issues for creating new wealth—particularly within the context of developing economies.<br /><br />We believe in the strategic, flexible, participatory and evolving research-based approach of highlighting issues, analyzing policy options, raising public awareness, and enlightening change agents, which will likely create intellectual capital catalyzing the growth of development entrepreneurs and formation of coalition, in each major segment of the society, who will progressively gain the confidence of stakeholders to drive forward the reform process—to create increasing wealth from technology and innovation for sustainable development.<br />

Product Description

<p>This book describes the current state of the art in the retrofit of existing distillation processes using advanced distillation techniques. Highlighting concept and practical application rather than theory, it emphasizes the use of advanced process integration and intensification techniques, such as multi-effect distillation, heat pump assisted distillation, thermally coupled distillation, dividing wall column, reactive distillation, and innovative hybrid systems.</p><p>As a thermal separation method, distillation is one of the most important and widely used technologies in the chemical process industry. While it has many advantages, one major drawback is its large energy requirement, which can significantly influence overall plant profitability. The increasing cost of energy has forced industry to reduce its energy requirement, but simultaneously there has been a need to increase capacity and output due to heightened demand. To accomplish this, the retrofit of distillation processes to increase efficiency and output has become a crucial issue. This book describes the use of advanced process integration and process intensification techniques to carry out effective distillation retrofit.</p><p>Written by leading researchers in distillation process, process integration, process intensification, and process retrofit, the book presents a comprehensive review of contemporary advanced distillation techniques which can be employed in grass-root systems and retrofit. It is a valuable source of information for undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemical engineering, practicing process designers and chemical engineers.</p>

<EM><br /><P>Business as an Instrument for Societal Change: In Conversation with the Dalai Lama </EM>is the result of two decades of research and dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other leaders in business, government, science and education. Author Sander Tideman, a lawyer and banker who has maintained a friendship with the Dalai Lama over all these years, presents a practical framework and methodology to develop a new kind of leadership - one fit to repurpose the business world and tackle escalating social, economic and environmental needs.</P><br /><P>The Dalai Lama rarely speaks directly on the topics of business, leadership and economics. Yet in the dialogues recounted here, his wisdom - combined with key insights from business and public leaders -creates a unified shift towards a consciousness of interconnectedness, offering profound insights for practitioners and general readers alike.</P><br /><P>Tideman unites the scientific worldviews of physics, neuroscience and economics with the positive psychology of human relationships, and ancient spiritual wisdom, to formulate practical business leadership solutions. While recognizing the need for change in external structures and governance, Tideman highlights the importance of opening our minds, and connecting inner and outer spirituality. At the same time, he focuses on concrete practices for winning the hearts and minds of employees, customers, communities, and society at large, while addressing deep-rooted problems such as extreme social inequality and continued financial collapses.</P><br /><P>At the heart of this book lies the journey to discover our shared purpose. This ignites new sources of value creation for the organisation, customers and society, which Tideman terms 'triple value'. We can achieve triple value by aligning societal and business needs, based on the fundamental reality of interconnection.</P><EM><br /><P>Business as an Instrument for Societal Change: In Conversation with the Dalai Lama</EM> is a readable and intelligent exploration of how leaders can actually help to shape a sustainable global economy by embracing innate human and humane behaviour. It is also Tideman's fascinating personal journey, which brought him to question the underlying motivations and goals of business leadership and to seek a new paradigm for a more sustainable approach. Reflecting Tideman's sharp perceptions and infused with the Dalai Lama's unmistakable joy, this book has the power to change your way of thinking. </P>
