Invincible microbe : tuberculosis and the never-ending search for a cure by Jim Murphy( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a killer that has been stalking and doing away with people for thousands of years: Tuberculosis. For centuries, TB in many forms was treated with everything from poultices and potions to the king's touch. The microorganism that causes the disease was eventually identified, more effective treatments were developed, and the cure for TB was thought to be within reach. But the TB germ simply will not die; drug-resistant varieties continue to plague and panic the human race. This biography of the deadly germ, an account of the diagnosis, treatment, and "cure" of the disease over time, and its social history, is woven together with archival prints and photographs

'It's not just about the money' : the meaning of work for people with severe and enduring mental health problems : an interpretative phenomenological analysis by Alison Blank( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"It's not just about the money": the meaning of work for people with severe and enduring mental health problems - an interpretative phenomenological analysis. Aim - to explore the meaning of work for people living with severe and enduring mental health problems. Method - Ten participants were recruited and interviewed initially; eight at six months; four at eighteen months. A longitudinal approach was chosen to facilitate capturing changes in the participants' life worlds. The method used was interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA). Findings - Three overarching themes were identified. Building and maintaining an occupational identity expressed the ways in which participants used occupations as the building blocks of an evolving identity; some viewed work as a socially valued way of doing this. Most of the participants had aspirations towards work, and occupation in a broad sense was seen as an essential component of recovery from mental ill health. Work, and other ways of belonging encapsulated the need to feel connected to others. Many of the participants envisaged working as a way of achieving this. Others had experienced work as isolating and excluding, and had found leaving or changing work roles to be liberating. Work values, personal values; the need for accord reflected the attitudes that participants held about the role of work in their lives, and in society. These views reflected ambivalent feelings about working which often seemed to stem from distressing experiences of work. The longitudinal nature of the study facilitated engagement with the developing narratives and exploration of the changes and consistencies in the participants' meaning making about work. Conclusion - work may contribute to recovery, as can other forms of occupational engagement. Attention to identity building and fostering a sense of belonging is important. Implications relate to the need for service providers to utilise a flexible approach to occupational participation
