Public health nursing--with its focus on compassionate, holistic care and service to the poor, the aged, those suffering from social injustice, and those without adequate health facilities--had its origins over a century ago with the founding of the Henry Street Settlement in New York City. Embracing the same foundational principles, Nurse-Led Health Clinics is the first book to describe innovative, nurse-managed solutions for improving health care today. It addresses the key business, policy, medical, financial, and operational considerations necessary for successfully opening and operating nurse-led health facilities. With the mission to dramatically expand access to primary and preventative health care, these clinics provide a full range of services, including primary care, health promotion, disease prevention, and behavioral health care to residents of underserved communities throughout the U.S.

Wir werden immer älter. Gleichzeitig gibt es zunehmend Menschen, die mit Demenz altern und nur noch versorgt werden. Klar ist: Wir brauchen Alternativen zu den eingefahrenen Umgangsweisen. Was tun wir, um Orte zu schaffen, an denen wir im Leben bleiben können - statt nur am Leben? Wie können wir das Lebensumfeld von Menschen mit und ohne Demenz zu »menschenwärmenden Orten« machen? In Deutschland sind zahlreiche Initiativen im Aufbruch: Engagierte Menschen aus Politik, Kultur und Kirche sind auf kreative Weise unterwegs zu Demenzfreundlichen Kommunen. Die drei Autor/innen, eng vertraut mit dem Thema, zeigen Suchbewegungen, Stolpersteine und erste Lösungsansätze auf.

Prävention lässt sich am besten mit vorausschauender Problemvermeidung übersetzen. Seit der Ottawa-Charta der Weltgesundheitsorganisation gelten Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung als die geeignetsten Instrumente, dem Kostenanstieg im Gesundheitswesen durch Vermeidung des Sozialversicherungsfalls entgegenzuwirken; mit andern Worten: durch Vermeidung von Bedarf an Behandlung, Rehabilitation und Pflege. Die lange politische Missachtung des Präventionsansatzes und seine kaum mehr nennenswerte öffentliche Förderung haben zu einer völligen Unterentwicklung hierzulande beigetragen. Der 1. Nationale Präventionskongress will einen Neuanfang in Sachen Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung, und er will in diesem Zusammenhang eine zukünftig stärkere Zusammenarbeit zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis anstoßen.

Wenn Männer mir die Welt erklären

»Das beste Buch des Jahres.« Lena Dunham Rebecca Solnit ist eine der wichtigsten feministischen Denkerinnen unserer Zeit. Ihr Essay Wenn Männer mir die Welt erklären hat weltweit für Furore gesorgt: Scharfsinnig analysiert Solnit männliche Arroganz, die die Kommunikation zwischen Männern und Frauen erschwert. Voller Biss, Komik und stilistischer Eleganz widmet sie sich in ihren Essays dem augenblicklichen Zustand der Geschlechterverhältnisse. Ein Mann, der mit seinem Wissen prahlt, in der Annahme, dass seine Gesprächspartnerin ohnehin keine Ahnung hat - jede Frau hat diese Situation schon einmal erlebt. Rebecca Solnit untersucht dieses Phänomen und weitere Mechanismen von Sexismus. Sie deckt Missstände auf, die meist gar nicht als solche erkannt werden, weil Übergriffe auf Frauen akzeptiert sind, als normal gelten. Dabei befasst sich die Autorin mit der Kernfamilie als Institution genauso wie mit Gewalt gegen Frauen, französischen Sex-Skandalen, Virginia Woolf oder postkolonialen Machtverhältnissen. Leidenschaftlich, präzise und mit einem radikal neuen Blick zeigt Rebecca Solnit auf, was längst noch nicht selbstverständlich ist: Für die Gleichberechtigung von Frauen und Männern gilt es, die Stimme zu erheben.
