Abortion Care as Moral Work

Johanna Schoen

This anthology brings together the voices of abortion providers, counselors, clinic owners, neonatologists, bioethicists, and historians. Authors address the motivations that lead them to offer abortion care, discuss how anti-abortion regulations have made it increasingly difficult to offer feminist-inspired services, and ponder the ethical frameworks supporting abortion care and fetal research.

Importing Care, Faithful Service

Stephen M. Cherry

Drawing on rich ethnographic and survey data, this study explores the role Catholicism plays in shaping the professional and community lives of foreign-born Filipino and Indian American nurses in the face of these challenges, while working at a Veterans hospital. Seeing nursing as a religious calling, they care for their patients with a sense of divine purpose but must also confront the cultural tensions and disconnects between how they were raised and trained in another country and the legal separation of church and state. How they cope with and engage these tensions plays an important role in not only shaping how they see themselves as Catholic nurses, but their place in the new American story.

Work of Hospitals

William C. Olsen

The Work of Hospitals, a volume on hospitals as clinical and social institutions, foregrounds the tensions inherent in efforts to sustain functional health services in resource-poor states. Global ethnographic research shows how clinicians and patients struggle, without adequate supplies and personnel, in times of financial austerity.  The chapters document a vast gulf worldwide between the idealized mission of the hospital and the implementation of this mission in everyday practice.

Carrying On

Brittany Cowgill

Unlike traditional pregnancy guidebooks that offer recommendations, Carrying On investigates prenatal health norms by exploring the origin stories for issues at the center of pregnancy, ranging from morning sickness and weight gain to ultrasounds and induction. In a world of information overload, Carrying On helps expecting parents make sense of the overwhelming amount of counsel by shedding light on where it all came from: how and why did such confusing and contradictory guidance on pregnancy come to exist?

Cyberchondria, Health Literacy, and the Role of Media on Society's Perception in Medical Information

Hacer Aker

Cyberchondria has been defined as searching for health-related information online in an excessive or repetitive way that is driven by the need to reduce distress or anxiety about health but results in a worsening outcome. This condition, the level of education of the individual, and the reputation of the medical information sources can affect the ability and technological knowledge. This feeling causes a loss of confidence in modern medicine in some individuals and makes others excessively use healthcare and increase health-related labor and costs. Cyberchondria, Health Literacy, and the Role of Media on Society's Perception in Medical Information addresses the concept of cyberchondria through an interdisciplinary approach. This initiative, which combines social, humanities, and science on a horizontal plane, allows the meeting of different perspectives on the concept of cyberchondria at the international level. Covering topics such as digital literacy, knowledge gap, and internet usage, this book is an excellent resource for academicians, researchers, students, industry researchers, non-government organizations, professors, and government organizations.

Quality of Healthcare in the Aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Anastasius Moumtzoglou

The COVID-19 pandemic has put massive stress on healthcare professionals' formal training, their creed to do no harm, and the patient safety movement. COVID-19 affects all aspects of daily life and healthcare's organizational culture and values. Healthcare institutions experience absenteeism, change in commerce patterns, and interrupted supply/delivery in this context. It has also revealed the extensive amounts of data needed for population health management, as well as the opportunities afforded by mainstreaming telehealth and virtual care capabilities, thus making the implementation of health IT essential in the post-pandemic era. Quality of Healthcare in the Aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic clarifies how healthcare professionals might provide their services differently than treating a patient through its vicinity with multiple providers. It examines the notion that healthcare education requires a pack of healthcare workers from varied educational backgrounds and training levels for the nuances of a disease. Covering topics such as blockchain technology, power density analysis, and supply chain, this book is a valuable resource for undergraduate and extended degree program students, graduate students of healthcare quality and health services management, healthcare managers, health professionals, researchers, professors, and academicians.
