International Handbook of Career Guidance

The International Handbook of Career Guidance represents a project of inter- tional professional cooperation. It is intended as a catalyst for reform and was designed to support the development of career guidance in the years to come. Working for over four years from Belgium and Australia we had the privilege to collaborate with over 50 colleagues throughout the world to produce this Handbook. In every instance we selected key researchers who have an established reputation in the field of career development. They agreed to be involved and we are grateful for their support in this major effort. In this handbook we have tried to bring together a collection that summarises the diverse aspects of career guidance. It is a synthesis of the domain of career and vo- tional guidance firstly for an international readership and secondly it is designed to act as a reference for academics, researchers and professionals in the expanding field of career development. For this reason the Handbook includes coverage of the ba- ground and history of guidance right through to poignant issues relating to careers in the modern world of work. Policy issues relating to the provision of careers services as well as professional issues relating to career education, career counselling, career assessment, program evaluation and research methodologies are covered.



A severe shortage of nurses is being experienced. Part of the problems is connected to the relentless practices of the so-called healthcare organisations including medical groups and hospitals which often insist on 16 hour days with little or no notice. Another part of the problem rests with doctors who continue to offput more and more medical decisions to nurses leading to patient neglect. Finally, the nurses themselves feel exploited and underpaid compared to the workloads and responsibilities being passed on them. This bibliography presents carefully selected review citations to the nursing literature which are then indexes by subject, title and author.
