Vaccination in America: medical science and children's welfare
Altenbaugh, Richard J., author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, 2018

Part 4 Line up and roll up your sleeves : "Operation needle" -- The complexities of mass immunization culture. Part 5 Intellectual authority? : A little knowledge is a dangerous thing -- What is science? Bibliography -- Index.
The success of the polio vaccine was a remarkable breakthrough for medical science, effectively eradicating a dreaded childhood disease. it was also the largest medical experiment to use American schoolchildren. The author examines an uneasy conundrum in the history of vaccination: even as vaccines greatly mitigate the harm that infectious disease causes children, the process of developing these vaccines put children at great risk as research subjects in the first half of the twentieth century, in the face of widespread resistance to vaccines, public health officials gradually medicalized American culture through mass media, public health campaigns, and the public education system. Schools supplied tens of thousands of young human subjects to researcher, school buildings became the main dispensaries of the polio antigen, and the mass immunization campaign that followed changed American public health policy in profound ways. Tapping links between bioethics, education, public health, and medical research, this book raises fundamental questions about child welfare and the tension between private and public responsibility that still fuel anxieties around vaccination today.

Somebody that I used to know
Mitchell, Wendy, author
London Bloomsbury, 
When Wendy Mitchell was diagnosed with dementia at the age of fifty-eight, she had to say goodbye to the woman she once was. Her career in the NHS, her ability to drive, cook and run the various shades of her independence were suddenly gone. Yet Wendy was determined not to give in. She was, and still is, propelled by a need to live in the moment, never knowing which version of herself might surface tomorrow. In this phenomenal memoir the first of its kind Wendy grapples with questions most of us have never had to consider. What do you value when loss of memory reframes what you have, how you have lived and what you stand to lose? What happens when you can no longer recognise your own daughters, or even, on the foggiest of days, yourself? Philosophical, intensely personal and ultimately hopeful, Somebody I Used to Know gets to the very heart of what it means to be human. It is both a heartrending tribute to the woman Wendy used to be, and a brave affirmation of the woman dementia has seen her become.

In-vitro fertilization the pioneers' history
edited by Gabor Kovacs, Peter Brinsden, Alan Decherney
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
"Preface: The 40th anniversary of the birth of Louise Brown, the first baby in the world to be born after conception in vitro, seemed to us and to Nick Dunton at Cambridge University Press, to be the ideal time to produce a book on the history of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) worldwide. Our aim has been to invite friends and colleagues from many different countries to write their own personal views on how IVF developed in their own countries or regions. Other authors were asked to review the stories behind other topics, like the early history leading up to human IVF, scientific and pharmaceutical developments, ethical and legal challenges, and how parents and children have fared after treatment by IVF"--Provided by publisher.

Physicianship and the rebirth of medical education
Boudreau, J. Donald, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 
Health, illness and disease -- Functioning -- The goals of physicians -- Person-centeredness -- The doctor-patient relationship -- The "good doctor" -- The clinical method and subjectivity in medicine -- Medical education : highlights of the past two centuries -- Competency-based education -- The rise and fall of clinical teaching -- Teaching a clinical method adapted to contemporary medicine -- Building on past experience -- Theory -- Educational blueprint: phases I to IV -- Phase I: the person -- Phase II: sick persons -- Phases III and IV: doctoring.
This book re imagines the education of medical students in its entire scope, from first year to graduation. The educational blueprint presented here rests on a new definition of sickness, one focused on impairments of function as the primary issue of concern for both patients and their care givers. This perspective avoids the common shift of medical attention from persons to diseases, and thus provides the basis for an authentic and robust patient-centered mindset.

"Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (PAG) is now a recognized sub speciality which encompasses a spectrum of conditions affecting gynecological health from birth through to adulthood. Serious and life threatening diseases may be relatively rare, but problems such as atypical development of the genital tract are highly complex. The development of specialist centers is important for appropriate and timely referral. For conditions that affect fertility, sexuality, health and wellbeing, multi-disciplinary care is the gold standard. In addition, for conditions requiring life-long care, the development of methodical transition from pediatric to adolescent and adult services is necessary. Collaborative clinical networks not only promote quality and consistency in care delivery, they also improve professional learning and raise the standard of research"--Provided by publisher.

Nuturing Indonesia : medicine and decolonisation in the Dutch East Indies
Pols, Hans, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Hans Pols proposes a new perspective on the history of colonial medicine from the viewpoint of indigenous physicians. The Indonesian medical profession in the Dutch East Indies actively participated in political affairs by joining and leading nationalist associations, by publishing in newspapers and magazines, and by becoming members of city councils and the colonial parliament. Indonesian physicians were motivated by their medical training, their experiences as physicians, and their subordinate position within the colonial health care system to organise, lead, and join social, cultural, and political associations. Opening with the founding of Indonesia's first political association in 1908 and continuing with the initiatives of the Association of Indonesian Physicians, Pols describes how the Rockefeller Foundation's projects inspired the formulation of a nationalist health programme. Tracing the story through the Japanese annexation, the war of independence, and independent Indonesia, Pols reveals the relationship between medicine and decolonisation, and the role of physicians in Asian history.
