Eliminate collateral damage: bring personalized medicine to mass vaccinations

Mandating vaccines for health care workers appears to be a convenient way to limit spread of infection. However, these techniques, especially in flu vaccination, can lead to a false sense of security. They can overshadow and replace other very effective practices to control spread of infection. Mandated vaccines have the potential to cause serious adverse health effects for individuals, and alienate employees from their employment.
This presentation will challenge the medical community to apply the principles of personalized medicine to help avoid and even eliminate “collateral damage” in vaccination campaigns.

Proactive design of a quality control program regarding the patient-therapist-relationship

The European Region of the World Confederation of Physiotherapy presented 2002/3 Core Standards for Physiotherapy Practice (CS) with their Patient Feedback questionnaire (PFQ). Inter alia, these standards were developed as tools to analyze the interaction between physiotherapist and patient.

Engaging Urban Aboriginal Australians in Health Care-A Person-Centered Primary Health

Care-A Person-Centered Primary Health Care Response.In this presentation I will highlight the importance of a person-centered approach in engaging vulnerable urban Australian Aboriginal patients in primary health care. I will draw on my experience as a general practitioner working within a team in a Multidisciplinary Community Health Service which serves a relatively high proportion of urban Aboriginal Australians in its catchment area. Many of the challenges faced can be seen to relate to globalisation- the human story of migration over the millennia, and in the Australian context over the past 250 years- with its continuing impact on the local indigenous peoples.

The medical prescription guides drug utilization and, hence, should contain as much information as possible to avoid doubts at the time of medication administration.

The Role of Primary Care

The Role of Primary CareLondon 2012 was home to the thirtieth summer Olympic Games. One July evening like millions of others all over the globe I watched the spectacular opening ceremony. At this ceremony, the hosting country showcases what it considers to be its pride and joy – a gem to show off to the whole planet. At a certain point during that glitzy evening, a bevy of beds appeared in the stadium. Pyjama-clad children jumped on them while “nurses” and “doctors” danced cheerily around. It portrayed Great Ormond Street Hospital and was a tribute to the NHS – the National Health Service.

Padua

PaduaProbably better known as the city of St. Anthony or as the economic capital of Veneto, Padua is one of the most important art cities in Italy. An ancient legend goes that the Greek hero Antenor was the founder of the town. The historical Padua was actually founded over 3000 years ago, during the Paleoveneti age, in a loop of the river Brenta. In the 4th century b.C. it became the most important centre of the ancient Veneti people. Allied to the Romans against the Gauls and since 49 b.C. a municipium, Patavium was one of the most flourishing towns of the Roman Empire.
