Developed with leading experts in infectious disease, this guide is intended to help support institutions in their plans for antifungal stewardship. The guide examines the rationale for, potential benefits of, and potential elements of an antifungal stewardship program, and suggests practical approaches for establishing a program.

6 Topgrading, 3rd Edition - Bradford D. Smart, Ph.D.
Auteur : Bradford D. Smart, Ph.D.
Genre : Management & Leadership
Great companies, large and small, rise or fall because of their talent; the more high performers on your team, the more successful your organization will be. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Research shows that only about 25% of all new hires turn out to be high performers.

But companies that have used Brad Smart’s Topgrading system over the past two decades have boosted their hiring success rates dramatically—sometimes even to 90%.

Three huge problems account for the typical poor results in hiring: dishonesty (via deceptive résumés), incomplete information (via shallow interviews), and lack of verifiability (via biased references). Topgrading shows how to solve all three problems. Instead of hir­ing by your gut reactions to résumés and inter

Auteur : Theresa Perry, Claude Steele & Asa Hilliard, III

“An important and powerful book” that radically reframes the debates swirling around the academic achievement of African-American students (Boston Review)

In three separate but allied essays, African-American scholars Theresa Perry, Claude Steele, and Asa Hilliard examine the alleged ‘achievement gap’ between Black and white students. Each author addresses how the unique social and cultural position Black students occupy—in a society which often devalues and stereotypes African-American identity—fundamentally shapes students' experience of school and sets up unique obstacles. Young, Gifted and Black provides an understanding of how these forces work, opening the door to practical, powerful methods for promoting high achievement at all levels.

In the first piece, Theresa Perry argues that the dilemmas African-Ameri

16 Weird Ideas That Work - Robert I. Sutton
Auteur : Robert I. Sutton
Genre : Management & Leadership
A breakthrough in management thinking, “weird ideas” can help every organization achieve a balance between sustaining performance and fostering new ideas. To succeed, you need to be both conventional and counterintuitive.

Creativity, new ideas, innovation—in any age they are keys to success. Yet, as Stanford professor Robert Sutton explains, the standard rules of business behavior and management are precisely the opposite of what it takes to build an innovative company. We are told to hire people who will fit in; to train them extensively; and to work to instill a corporate culture in every employee. In fact, in order to foster creativity, we should hire misfits, goad them to fight, and pay them to defy convention and undermine the prevailing culture. Weird Ideas That Work codifies these and other proven counterintuitive ideas to help you turn your workplace from

17 Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools - Howard Stevenson
Auteur : Howard Stevenson
Genre : Education
Based on extensive research, this provocative volume explores how schools are places where racial conflicts often remain hidden at the expense of a healthy school climate and the well-being of students of color. Most schools fail to act on racial microaggressions because the stress of negotiating such conflicts is extremely high due to fears of incompetence, public exposure, and accusation. Instead of facing these conflicts head on, schools perpetuate a set of avoidance or coping strategies. The author of this much-needed book uncovers how racial stress undermines student achievement. Students, educators, and social service support staff will find workable strategies to improve their racial literacy skills to read, recast, and resolve racially stressful encounters when they happen.

Book Features:
A model that applies culturally relevant behavioral stress management strate

25 The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission - John Dickson
Auteur : John Dickson
Genre : Christianity
This book comes out of years of reflection, failures, and some successes in the task of reaching out to others with the gospel. Many Christians think of the task of mission as an entirely verbal activity, when perhaps the best kept secret of New Testament teaching about mission is that it involves a whole range of activities that explicitly promote Christ to the world and draw others to him, and only a few of them involve speaking. Without diminishing or downplaying the importance of speaking the gospel, John Dickson shows that, on the other hand, downplaying the range of activities that promote Christ to the world has its own set of problems. It can make those who are not confident about speaking—of anything, let alone Jesus—feel inadequate and self-conscious in the task of reaching out to others. Equally, it can make those who do have a flair for speaking feel as though they are fu

On Christmas Day 1989, Ceausescu was executed by his own people at the end of a trial whose accusations came almost word-for-word out of Red Horizons.Today, still living undercover in the United States, the man credited by the CIA as the only person in the Western world who single-handedly demolished an entire enemy espionage service--the one he himself managed--takes aim at an even bigger target: the exotic, widely misunderstood but still as

45 Promoting Academic Engagement Through Insistence: Being a Warm Demander. - Childhood Education
Auteur : Childhood Education
Genre : Education
If educators are to bridge the black/white achievement gap, they must find a way to engage low-income and minority youth in academic learning. While ample evidence indicates that some teachers are highly effective in engaging students (e.g., Bempechat, 1998; Corbett, Wilson, & Williams, 2002; Irvine, 2002; Ladson-Billings, 1994), the persistence of the achievement gap suggests that most are far less effective at engaging African American students. A positive psychological environment characterized by respectful interactions, a calm tone, minimal student resistance, and a clear academic focus (Patrick, Turner, Meyer, & Midgley, 2003) will help achieve increased student engagement and decreased task avoidance. One key strategy in creating a positive psychological environment is the teacher's capacity to "insist" that the students meet established academic and behavioral standards.

46 Late-Stage Dementia - Michael Gordon, MD
Auteur : Michael Gordon, MD
Genre : Health & Fitness
I want to provide the best care possible. The suffering has gone on for a long time, and I want to be sure the end stage is as comfortable as possible. This common sentiment is expressed by both health care professionals responsible for caring for frail elders experiencing the later stages of dementia and family members trying to ensure the most compassionate care for their loved ones. Health care providers and family members often struggle with painful decisions when confronting the inevitable while providing love, compassion, and care. Modern medicine may offer seemingly promising treatments, but eventually, the impact of Alzheimers disease and other causes of dementia can cause profound deterioration in the patients quality of life. The focus must eventually shift to compassionate end-of-life care. This guidebook reflects Dr. Gordons extensive experience with health care professional

47 Promoting Health and Academic Success - David A. Birch
Auteur : David A. Birch
Genre : Education
There is increasing evidence that health and academic success go hand in hand. Now educators and health professionals have a new model—the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) approach—to use in promoting health and learning in the schools. This new approach, developed by leaders in education and health, is a transition from the coordinated school health (CSH) model that was introduced in 1987.

Promoting Health and Academic Success is a new resource for the transition from CSH to WSCC. Written by national leaders in education and school health, some of whom were involved in the development of WSCC, this book provides direction for education and school health professionals interested in promoting student health. It is valuable for individuals and groups interested in advocating fo

48 Defense Is From Mars, State Is From Venus: Improving Communications and Promoting National Security - Covering Peacekeeping, Foreign Policy, and the Character Traits of Military Officers and Diplomats - Progressive Management
Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Military
This excellent report, widely referenced in the military community, has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction.

Unprecedented challenge and change are the only consistent characteristics of a post Cold War world rapidly approaching the end of the millennium. Today we have a world in which sophisticated weapons, information technology, and global communications are available on the open market, the contrast between rich and poor nation states is increasingly sharp, and the ability of terrorists organizations to directly threaten United States interests in increasing daily.

Two pillars of our national security strategy-Department of State (diplomacy), and the Department of Defense (military)-are increasingly thrust together in peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and humanitarian missions such as Bosnia, Haiti, and Somalia to de

49 The Social Roots of Risk - Kathleen Tierney
Auteur : Kathleen Tierney
Genre : Sociology
The first decade of the 21st century saw a remarkable number of large-scale disasters. Earthquakes in Haiti and Sumatra underscored the serious economic consequences that catastrophic events can have on developing countries, while 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina showed that first world nations remain vulnerable. The Social Roots of Risk argues against the widespread notion that cataclysmic occurrences are singular events, driven by forces beyond our control. Instead, Kathleen Tierney contends that disasters of all types—be they natural, technological, or economic—are rooted in common social and institutional sources. Put another way, risks and disasters are produced by the social order itself—by governing bodies, organizations, and groups that push for economic growth, oppose risk-reducing regulation, and escape responsibility for tremendous losses when they occur. Considering

50 Collective Trauma, Collective Healing - Jack Saul
Auteur : Jack Saul
Genre : Psychology
Collective Trauma, Collective Healing is a guide for mental health professionals working in response to large-scale political violence or natural disaster. It provides a framework that practitioners can use to develop their own community based, collective approach to treating trauma and providing clinical services that are both culturally and contextually appropriate. Clinicians will come away from the book with a solid understanding of new roles that health and mental health professionals play in disasters—roles that encourage them to recognize and enhance the resilience and coping skills in families, organizations, and the community at large.

The book draws on experience working with survivors, their families, and communities in the Holocaust, postwar Kosovo, the Liberian civil wars, and post-9/11 lower Manhattan. It tracks the development of community programs and proje
