The Minister of Health, Alban Sumana Bagbin, has expressed worry about the alleged extortion of money by some unscrupulous healthcare workers from patients before rendering legitimate services.

Mr. Bagbin consequently charged healthcare personnel to refrain from the practice which according to him is an impediment to quality healthcare delivery as well as an indictment on their reputation.

The Health Minister said this during the launch of the National Diabetes Awareness Week in Sunyani. The focus of this year’s celebration is “Self motivation; the key for survival”.

World First: Islet Transplant Into Man Using Sernova's Cell Pouch(TM) for Treatment of Diabetes

World First: Islet Transplant Into Man Using Sernov...

..."The Sernova Cell Pouch™ implantation and transplantation processes are simple, rapid minimally invasive procedures, conducted on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia," said Dr. Shapiro. "This offers substantial potential benefit over the Edmonton protocol and the ease of use provides an opportunity for the Cell Pouch™ to become the standard of care for people with diabetes if it proves to be effective in these initial trials."
The objectives of the human clinical trial are to assess the safety and efficacy of the Cell Pouch™ with transplanted islets in up to 20 patients with Type-1 diabetes. The study is sponsored by Sernova Corp and the University of Alberta. In the study, patients who have met the enrolment criteria and provided informed consent are implanted with the Cell Pouch™ prior to transplantation of donor human islets. To prevent islet graft rejection, patients in this study are treated with the best in class standard of care immunosuppression protocol. Interim analysis of the data from this clinical study is expected during H1, 2013. Further information on the trial may be found at www.clinicaltrials.gov (Identifier: NCT01652911)....

Safe At School? Outrage in Education is More Like It! | Scott's Diabetes

Safe At School? Outrage in Education is More Like It! | Scott's Diabetes | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
Diabetes care in today's school systems is unacceptable and life-threatening. Take Action! Help keep kids safe at school.

Outrage in Education

Keeping a Child Safe at School – Diabetes Forecast, August 2012
I’d like you to read this story about Latesha Taylor and her daughter, Loretta, just published in Diabetes Forecast.

It is a story of nearly constant lack of care from the school, and a seemingly nonchalant attitude about it. Latesha regularly drops everything she’s doing (work included) to rush to school to care for her daughter when the nurse is absent.

It’s a horrifying tale of discrimination that denies diabetes care to students across the D.C. school system.

The whole thing is a mess, and it is literally destroying this family, one missed paycheck at a time.

It’s just one example of struggles with schools happening all over the nation, and none of it is acceptable.
