Pesticides. Comment ignorer ce que l'on sait
(Pesticides. How can what is known still be ignored?)

Pesticides. Comment ignorer ce que l'on sait Jouzel JN "Pesticides. Comment ignorer ce que l'on sait"
SciencesPo Les Presses, Paris 2019: 262 pages, €21.
Sociologist Jean-Noël Jouzel carried out an investigation in France and in the U.S.A. to find out what leads the regulatory agencies responsible for authorising the marketing of certain pesticides to wilfully ignore certain scientific data when these data have not been generated according to official toxicological norms. This rich and well-documented book describes the reasons why certain information is quashed while other information is taken into account. In France, promotion of pesticides by the Ministry of Agriculture and farmers' associations has also caused pesticides to be perceived as modern products which improve productivity, rather than as dangers to occupational health and safety. > Learn more (in French)

Prendre soin des patients en toute sécurité (Caring for patients safely)

Prendre soin des patients en toute sécuritéChanelière M "Prendre soin des patients en toute sécurité"
Le Coudrier, Brignais 2019: 172 pages, €29.50.

Marc Chanelière has been studying medical error ever since he wrote his 2005 medical school thesis on the impact of adverse events on the practice of general practitioners. In the interim, this instructor in general medicine has been exploring and enriching this area of research, including the analysis of serious adverse events related to ambulatory care. "Caring for patients safely" is a practical guide based on the author's experience, aimed at healthcare professionals practicing in the community, at teachers, and at their students, who are faced with this topic very early on during their practical training with patients. > Learn more (in French)

Lulu va être opérée ! (Lulu is having an operation!)

Lulu va être opérée ! Réseau-Lucioles "Lulu va être opérée ! Handicap, grande dépendance : des outils et des conseils pour réussir un parcours chirurgical complexe" 2021: 132 pages. Available for free download on the website:, or for order online at the same site for €20 plus delivery.
Lulu is a young woman with a significant disability. She doesn't walk, doesn't feed herself, doesn't speak. Lulu is in hospital for a surgical intervention and it's not an easy thing to live with: not for her, nor for her family, nor for the people who normally care for her, nor for the healthcare practitioners. "Lulu va être opérée !" is aimed at all of them. There are currently very few critical evaluations available on the themes covered in this book. The book contains numerous concrete, practical suggestions to improve the patient's hospital experience. Most of the suggestions are very far ahead of what the healthcare system usually offers, or is able to provide for complex patients. > Learn more (in French)
