Book DescriptionAs shown in the Preface, numerous surveys have concluded that most heart bypass surgery is unnecessary Supported by hospital records, this is one patients story of how it happened to him The book includes a detailed record of the experience from the day he fell on his chest in a touch-football game to the day he was given a fraudulent озтдр consent form to sign, to the day the surgeon wrote an entry in which he claimed the surgery was done because the patient wanted it It goes on to reveal what a house of mirrors consent regulations and law are in one state Recommendations by the American Hospital Association are the only rules that protect a patient from unnecessary or unwanted surgery and other treatment, but they are not legally enforceable It reveals that the Patient Bill of Rights is mostly fluff, and the prime example is the point that gives a patient the right to know his doctors name, but nothing about his education, license, resume or medical record. 2004 г 77 стр ISBN 1413734715.

The Mismanagement of Talent: Employability And Jobs In The Knowledge Economy артикул 404e.
Book DescriptionThis book lifts the veneer of 'employability', to expose serious problems in the way that future workers are trying to manage their employability in the competition for tough-entry jobs in the knowledge economy; in how companies understand their human resource strategies and endeavor to recruit the managers and leaders of the озтдш future; and in the government failure to come to terms with the realities of the knowledge-based economy The demand for high-skilled, high waged jobs, has been exaggerated But it is something that governments want to believe because it distracts attention from thorny political issues around equality, opportunity, and redistribution If it is assumed that there are plenty of good jobs for people with the appropriate credentials then the issue of who gets the best jobs loses its political sting But if good jobs are in limited supply, how the competition for a livelihood is organized assumes paramount importance This issue, is not lost on the middle classes, given that they depend on academic achievement to maintain, if not advance the occupational and social status of family members The reality is that increasing congestion in the market for knowledge workers has led to growing middle class anxieties about how their off-spring are going to meet the rising threshold of employability that now has to be achieved to stand any realistic chance of finding interesting and rewarding employment The result is a bare-knuckle struggle for access to elite schools, colleges, universities and jobs This book examines whether employability policies are flawed because they ignore the realities of 'positional' conflict in the competition for a livelihood, especially as the rise of mass higher education has arguably done littleto increase the employability of students for tough-entry jobs It will be of interest to anyone looking to understand the way knowledge-based firms recruit and how this is influenced by government policy, be they Researchers, Academics and Students of Business and Management, Industrial Relations, Human Resource Management, Politics or Sociology; Human Resource Management or Recruitment Professionals; or job candidates. 2004 г ISBN 0199269548.
