<b><i>"This detailed, practical guide to reflective practice has relevance to all healthcare practitioners. Taylor offers readers her REFLECT model to guide them through the process of reflection... Throughout she uses a wide variety of techniques to explain and illustrate what to expect and how to adapt and accommodate to different circumstances and preferences... This book has such depth and detail and yet at the same time is practical and written in plain language. There is literally something for everyone...”</i></b><br /><br />Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, April 2011 78(2)<p><b>"Taylor reveals how reflection and contemplation creatively welds the everyday working day world to a myriad of cultural, ethical, moral and managerial challenges. This book offers the beginning practitioner a broad understanding of why conscious awareness of one's thinking matters. Taylor's insight reveals her deep thoughtfulness as a meticulous researcher, supervisor and mentor and her guidelines will ground you in shaping your own development as a researcher in practice."</b><br /><br />Dr Margaret Martin, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand</p><br /><br /><p> <b>"Reflection, as a process of critical self-evaluation, continues to grow and be recognised as a successful,approach to improving, changing and managing healthcare practice. This latest text by Taylor is a welcome addition to the increasing body of knowledge on the subject.

Highlighting the importance of ordinary human communication for all healthcare professionals, Taylor's text and presence is anything but ordinary."</b><br /><br />Professor Dawn Freshwater, University of Leeds, UK</p><br /><br /><p> <b>"This book is about more than reflection, it is about a philosophy of nursing that Taylor has espoused throughout her career, and it makes a connection with the reader in a way that many books do not.This is a must-have book for all who wish to move their practice forwards."</b><br /><br />Joanne Pike, Senior Lecturer, NEWI, North Wales</p><br /><br /><p> This popular book provides practical guidance for healthcare professionals wishing to reflect on their work and improve the way they undertake clinical procedures, interact with other people at work and deal with power issues. The new edition has been broadened in focus from nurses and midwives exclusively, to include all healthcare professionals.</p><br /><br /><p> Practice stories by a variety of healthcare professionals are interweaved throughout the book to illustrate reflective practice and 'author's reflections' boxes are used to illustrate the author's experience of reflective practice.</p><br /><br /><p> The book contains a clear and comprehensive description of:</p><br /><br /><ul> <li> The fundamentals of reflective practice and how and why it is embraced in healthcare professions</li><br /><br /><li> Strategies for effective reflection</li><br /><br /><li> Systematic approaches to technical, practical and emancipatory reflection</li><br /><br /><li> A step-by-step guide to applying the Taylor REFLECT model</li><br /><br /></ul><br /><br /><p> This edition also introduces the concept of 'ordinariness' in health care, which used consciously with the reflective practice processes in this book should increase the likelihood that patients receiving healthcare will feel acknowledged, heard and comforted as intelligent human beings.</p>

<P>Forensic imaging with multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and other cross-sectional imaging modalities is a rapidly evolving field. Understanding the pathological basis of disease and death is fundamental to the interpretation of radiologic images. Forming a bridge between these distinct disciplines, <STRONG>Essentials of Forensic Imaging: A Text-Atlas</STRONG> brings the long tradition of radiologic pathologic correlation to forensic radiology and autopsy.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Providing readers with a technical and interpretive foundation for applying modern cross-sectional imaging to forensic autopsy, the book integrates more than 300 color autopsy photographs with postmortem MDCT and radiography in a topical format. Organized by cause of death, the rich pictorial display of case material that accompanies the text establishes a contextual understanding. Readers can learn the diagnostic value of imaging applied to forensic autopsy by correlating specific causes of death with their respective forensic and radiologic principles. Causes of death covered in this practical volume include:</P><br /><P></P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>Gunshot wounds</LI><br /><LI>Blunt force injury</LI><br /><LI>Fire and burn injury</LI><br /><LI>Blast injury</LI><br /><LI>Drowning and other deaths in water</LI><br /><LI>Suicide</LI><br /><LI>Natural causes</LI><br /><LI>Asphyxia</LI><br /><LI>Electrocution</LI><br /><P></P></UL><br /><P></P><br /><P>As forensic imaging becomes more advanced, the possibilities for its use in autopsy continue to grow, as do the opportunities for application in related areas. In the final chapter, these expert authors also discuss the use of MDCT in the assessment of medical intervention, exhumation and second autopsy, and anthropology. </P>
