This chapter provides you with an example of the nursing care that a patient with pulmonary TB might require. The case study has been written by a TB nurse specialist and provides you with a patient profile to enable you to understand the context of the patient. The case study aims to guide you through the assessment, nursing action and evaluation of a patient with pulmonary TB together with the rationale for care. In Chapter 1 you were asked to revise the normal anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system see Montague et al and a brief definition of TB was given. Before reading the case study below, find out how pulmonary TB would affect the respiratory system and what symptoms a patient with TB might present with. William VG

Violence against women VAW has been a serious social, cultural and economic problem in Bangladesh, where nearly two out of three women have experienced gender-based violence during their lifetime, and domestic violence is a common, though largely underreported, occurrence. The Programme encouraged the adoption and implementation of policies for preventing violence and supporting survivors by enhancing the capacities of the government, improving information and providing support to NGOs and civil society. It also invested in changing the attitudes and behaviour of men, women, boys and girls to reduce VAW and discriminatory practices such as dowry, early marriage and trafficking. In addition, it supported the extension of services for survivors of gender-based violence with immediate care, relief and rehabilitation through a comprehensive package including the expansion, renovation and improvement of the existing shelter system in select programme intervention sites. When the Programme began, organizations responsible for ensuring access to services were inactive: the Union Parishad standing committees UP-SC on Women and Child Welfare, Culture and Sports, the smallest rural administrative and local government units in Bangladesh.
