              The 2020 outbreak of coronavirus has terrified the world - and revealed how unprepared we are for the next outbreak of an infectious disease. Somewhere in nature, a killer virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a bird, bat, monkey, or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. T...his not-yet-detected germ has the potential to wipe out millions of lives over a matter of weeks or months. That risk makes the threat posed by ISIS, a ground war, a massive climate event, or even the dropping of a nuclear bomb on a major city pale in comparison. In The End of Epidemics, Duke Global Health Institute faculty member and past Chair of the Global Health Council Dr. Jonathan D. Quick examines the eradication of smallpox and devastating effects of influenza, AIDS, SARS, Ebola, and other viral diseases . Analysing local and global efforts to contain these diseases and citing firsthand accounts of failure and success, Dr. Quick proposes a new set of actions which he has coined The Power of Seven, to end epidemics before they can begin. These actions include- - Spending prudently to prevent disease before an epidemic strikes, rather than spending too little, too late - Ensuring prompt, open, and accurate communication between nations and aid agencies, instead of secrecy and territorial disputes - Fighting disease and preventing panic with innovation and good science Practical and urgent, The End of Epidemics is crucial reading for citizens, health professionals, and policymakers alike. 'Pragmatic, insightful and research-rich, this is a key volume for the policymaker's shelf.' -Nature 'Dr. Quick's urgent message makes one hope that this book will reach a huge audience and that its exhortations will be acted on everywhere.' -The Wall Street Journal 'In The End of Epidemics, Quick and co-author Bronwyn Fryer spell out the seven biggest things we need to stop those outbreaks becoming epidemics. It is an impressive wish list ... We could certainly use some of the advocacy for public heal

              Preventive Stress Management in Organizations, Second Edition offers a comprehensive framework for creating healthy workplaces. It begins by presenting the transactional relationship between individual and organisational stress. Each individual brings a peculiar pattern of respon...ding to inevitable and necessary demands of work, and many experience psychological, behavioural, and medical forms of stress because of factors related to their work. Individuals and organisations can implement practices to reverse unhealthy stress (distress) and promote eustress, which stimulates growth and vitality. Chapters examine individual and organisational sources of stress and their consequences; methods and instruments for diagnosing organisational and individual stress; ways to redesign work and improve professional relationships; and methods for managing demands and stressors. New findings from positive psychology are woven in. Methods designed to proactively enhance health and performance at work while averting the costs and discomfort of distress are explored and illustrated by examples drawn from healthy organisations. Preventive stress management is a philosophy and set of principles grounded in public health, which organisational leaders and consultants can use to help their organisation operate to its fullest potential. The approaches outlined in this book may be implemented by leaders in any organisation.

              Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World (Hardback)

              The Black Death. Cholera. Spanish flu. Swine flu. HIV/AIDS. COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2. Each of these pandemics has made (or, is making) a lasting impact on humanity. From the immediate mental image of the beaked masks worn in the Middle Ages (bubonic plague) and the birth of epidemiolo...gy (cholera) to recognizing the benefits of social distancing (1918 flu) and the harm of prejudice and misinformation (HIV/AIDS), pandemics have shown us how to survive infectious disease, as long as we heed their lessons. Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World, edited by Christine Crudo Blackburn, brings together experts on pandemic preparedness and biosecurity to explore areas of weakness in pandemic prevention, preparedness, detection, and response. Even as COVID-19 makes its way around the world, leaders and policymakers are tasked with thinking ahead and preparing to effectively respond to the next such event - which experience shows us to be a matter of 'when', not 'if'. Inside, chapters are divided into sections on the lessons learned from the 1918 influenza pandemic, the application of the One Health concept, and the role of the private sector in responding to potentially devastating disease outbreaks. A chapter on the impacts of supply chain disruption - in light of COVID-19 - and an epilogue that discusses the current outbreak make Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World a timely and accessibly written compilation on pandemic prevention, preparedness, detection, and response.
