In addition, ethical issues in neuropsychological research and test development are examined. The text also includes chapters on emerging and particularly challenging aspects of neuropsychological practice, such as the assessment of response validity, and the use of information technology and telecommunications. Through the use of case illustrations, the authors examine ethical issues in neuropsychology and the new Ethics Code, offering a practical approach for understanding and promoting ethical neuropsychological practice.

This case book is the ideal text for Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs), as well as student ODPs and nurses preparing to work in perioperative care. Delivering individualised, holistic and evidence-based care can be challenging in the perioperative setting, requiring the practitioner to apply specialist clinical knowledge to each individual patient. This text presents 20 interactive case studies that will support the reader in assimilating a wide range of professional knowledge in order to develop a comprehensive plan of care for patients they encounter. The practical cases: • Demonstrate how care will vary depending on the patient’s physiological assessment and their personal, social, cultural and emotional needs • Will consolidate the reader’s learning around pathophysiology, pharmacology, assessment skills and clinical skills • Include common clinical procedures as well as those that are more complex and require a deeper analysis of the evidence in order to improve patient care. • Use “Stop and Think” boxes to encourage readers to reflect on key points within the case study, in order to develop their own knowledge and assist in their CPD This text will support all learners, at both pre- and post-registration level as they develop their knowledge of perioperative care. Its goal is to help the practitioner deliver excellent and confident care in perioperative practice and in other healthcare settings. “Although clearly targeted at the student Operating Department Practitioner, Abbott and Wordsworth have produced a learning resource that any learner in the perioperative environment will find both informative and a useful learning aid. The editors have set out the twenty patient case studies in a sequence that allows the student to work through them as their course and competence progresses, although students can dip into the case studies in any order that supports their current clinical placement. The section introducing perioperative care is essential reading for any perioperative practitioner, with an up-to-date introduction to the latest concepts of teamwork and human factors in patient safety. Coupled with the patient-centred focus of the case studies this provides any reader with an understanding of the changing approach to patient care in the perioperative environment.” Bill Kilvington, President, College of Operating Department Practitioners, UK “I have read this book several times and found that the chapter contents are excellent. This book will be useful for ODPs and theatre nurses, it will enhance their knowledge and skills and may also enhance their abilities to work in operating departments and care well for patients. The book covers preoperative care, intraoperative care and postoperative care which is essential for all practitioners working in operating departments. The content of this book is very informative and will be of great use to both students and qualified practitioners. I find it very impressive and I envisage it to be very useful to all theatre practitioners!” Paul Wicker, formerly Head of Perioperative Studies, Edge Hill University, UK and Visiting Professor, Nanjing University, China.

Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology features actual clinical neuropsychological cases drawn from leading experts' files. Each chapter represents a different case completed by a different expert. Cases cover the lifespan from child, to adult, to geriatric, and the types of cases will represent a broad spectrum of prototypical cases of well-known and well-documented disorders as well as some rarer disorders. Chapter authors were specifically chosen for their expertise with particular disorders. When a practitioner is going to see a child or an adult with "X" problem, they can turn to the "case" and find up to date critical information to help them understand the issues related to the diagnosis, a brief synopsis of the literature, the patient's symptom presentation, the evaluation including neuropsychological test results and other results from consultants, along with treatments and recommendations. Clinical cases represent a long-established tradition as a teaching vehicle in the clinical sciences, most prominently in medicine and psychology. Case studies provide the student with actual clinical material - data in the form of observations of the patient, examination/test data, relevant history, and related test results - all of which must be integrated into a diagnostic conclusion and ultimately provide the patient with appropriate recommendations. Critical to this educational/heuristic process is the opportunity for the reader to view the thought processes of the clinician that resulted in the conclusions and recommendations offered. With the science of the disorder as the foundation of this process, readers learn how the integration of multiple sources of data furthers critical thinking skills.
