Table of Contents

The study discusses the increases in the population of the Kingdom of Poland in the period after the abolition of serfdom and enfranchisement of peasants, launched by the Tsar in 1864, until the First World War (1914–18). The proposed analysis of the increase/decrease trends, distribution, ethnic/confessional distribution and professional structure is preceded by a description of other related important problems.

First, we present the territory of the Kingdom in the context of historical and geographic divisions of Polish lands. We sought to show the ways in which the Partitions of Poland-Lithuania tore up the historical territory of Poland and how in a small part of it a new autonomous unit, independent in certain respects, which resisted an ‘organic’ incorporation into Russia, in spite of the unifying tendencies after 1864. The other issue to be outlined here is the conditions of economic and social development — a description that is meant to form the background for a discussion of certain selected population-related problems in the Kingdom of Poland.

As a question of special importance, a dedicated chapter deals with assessment of statistical materials used in this study. The bibliography/list of references mentions the studies used in our text as well as those which have not been directly used but contributed to the development of a general view of the issues in question. With a limited statistical foundation at our disposal, we have avoided proposing any categorical forms of inference.

Witold Pruss (1943–2005) — historian, Varsavianist, educator and social activist associated with the University of Warsaw. He specialized in the economic history of the 19th century.

Jakość usług medycznych

Możliwości modelowania i dostosowania do oczekiwań pacjenta

== Monografia w dwóch tomach ==


Współczesne działania w opiece zdrowotnej koncentrują się na jakości, która jest priorytetowa. Oznacza to, że placówki medyczne muszą dążyć do zadowolenia pacjenta, uwzględniać jego potrzeby oraz podnosić stale jakość dostarczanych usług.

Jednym z priorytetów współczesnych systemów ochrony zdrowia są jakość i bezpieczeństwo pacjenta. Krajowe oraz międzynarodowe dokumenty zwracają uwagę na konieczność rozwoju zrównoważonej opieki zdrowotnej, świadczącej usługi medyczne wysokiej jakości. Realizowanie efektywnych procesów zarządzania jakością, właściwa alokacja doświadczenia i kompetencji pracowników, procesy certy kowania jakości, nowe rozwiązania informatyzacji zdrowia oraz budowanie trwałych relacji z pacjentem to tylko niektóre elementy świadczące o modelowaniu i doskonaleniu jakości usług medycznych.

Between Cultures, Between Languages

Essays in Honour of Professor Aniela Korzeniowska

Edited by Izabela Szymańska and Agnieszka Piskorska

Scholar, author and translator, Professor Aniela Korzeniowska has carried out her professional activities and lived a celebrated life between cultures and languages in the literal and symbolic sense. As a mark of our deep appreciation of her achievements and contributions, not to men on the warmth of her persona and the friendship which she has bestowed upon so many, we are honoured to contribute our works to this volume, published on the occasion of her jubilee.

Born in Britain to a Scottish mother and a Polish father, Aniela Korzeniowska spent her early life in Scotland, moving to Poland with her parents in the 1970s. She studied at the University of Warsaw, in the Institute of English Studies, and other graduating she became a lecturer there, teaching English for Academic Purposes and translation. Then, with the evolution of curricula, she gradually extended the scope of her courses, to include the topics of translation theory, translation ethics, language variation in translation, and very importantly, Scottish literature and culture.

This volume combines thematically and methodologically diverse papers from the fields of translation studies, literary studies, cultural studies and applied linguistics, which are linked by the fact that they explore, in one way or another, multicultural and multilingual situations and contexts; highlighting overlaps, interfaces, exchanges and meetings that bridge the linguistic and cultural divides.
