Straight-forward and comprehensive guide for learning to be a do-it-yourself, at-home doctor When a catastrophic event overwhelms the medical infrastructure—whether it's a natural disaster, civil unrest, pandemic, or societal collapse—life-saving care may not be available for days, months, or ever. Fortunately, this guide gives easy-to-understand treatments that ordinary people can use on everything from stabilizing injuries and preventing shock to setting broken bones and treating major illnesses. Even relatively minor injuries can be fatal without proper care, so this book carefully explains exactly what to do when a loved one needs help. Featuring detailed information on assembling a medical supply kit, assessing needs and choosing the best treatment, this is the ultimate guide to being a self-sufficient survivor. Written by a trusted doctor and survival expert, When Help Is NOT on the Way is not a replacement for a doctor or hospital visit, but when the situation gets so bad that those are not available, readers will be thankful for the information in this life-saving book.

The sixth edition of an educational handbook revised and updated in 1992 that has become a standard text for training teachers in the health sciences. Unorthodox in its approach, the book challenges teachers to increase their skills so as to make learning easier for students. To this end, readers are given a task-oriented exercise in self-learning that can help them rethink attitudes, reorient teaching objectives, and then master the appropriate skills. The importance of producing graduates who are able to respond to community and individual health needs is repeatedly emphasized. The book features five main chapters covering educational objectives, evaluation planning, program construction, test and measurement techniques, and the organization of an educational workshop. Within each chapter, theoretical information is presented and followed wherever appropriate by exercise sheets. Such a format makes it possible for the reader to skip and select, test, and choose according to his individual interests. Though most practical examples pertain to the medical and nursing professions, the handbook has also enjoyed wide use in teacher training for the dentistry, pharmacy, and sanitary engineering professions.
