Now Hear This: Informed Patients Seek Doctors Who Listen

Now Hear This: Informed Patients Seek Doctors Who Listen | senior home care | Scoop.it

Are you a good listener?


These days, you better be for one simple reason. Given the amount of information aesthetic consumers now have access to, doctors who don’t listen to what patients have to say about their care may find their surgical schedules a lot quieter than they’d like.

As this infographic suggests, patients are not only bringing their own research into their meetings with their doctors, they’re actively seeking out providers who are willing and interested in discussing what they’ve found.


As healthcare advocate Katherine Hoffman, who created the infographic notes, the results came from a small sample of online respondents so they’re best considered a snapshot rather than a statistically significant study. Nevertheless, the following pair of respondent comments put the picture into exceedingly clear focus:

My physician is utterly dismissive of anything I say to them. I am now changing doctors.

I gather [information], doctor and I review together, doctor interprets, doctor makes recommendation. Serves a healthy doctor-patient relationship.

That dichotomy takes on even more significance when you consider that more and more people are chronicling their aesthetic journeys from start to finish. At RealSelf, we see it all the time as patients extol doctors who listen to them, reject ones who don’t, and share the details with millions of other potential patients.

As the say in the movie theater: The audience is listening. Are you?

Designing Good Together: Transforming Hospital Complaints Handling. Report from Parliamentary & Health Services Ombudsman

Designing Good Together: Transforming Hospital Complaints Handling. Report from Parliamentary & Health Services Ombudsman | senior home care | Scoop.it

For the overwhelming majority of people, their experience of care in the NHS is very positive and greatly valued. But things can go wrong. When this happens, how people and organisations deal with it determines whether the individual receives justice, and whether the organisation learns from what went wrong.

David Foord's curator insight, August 18, 2013 4:21 PM

The Parliamentary & Health Services Ombudsman has supported the review, led by Ann Clwyd MP & Professior Tricia Hart into complaints handling in the NHS following Sir Robert Francis's Inquiry into Mid Staffs, by carrying out three pieces of research. The first, The NHS hospital complaints system: A case for urgent treatment, analysed the evidence from our cases and explored the themes underlying patient’s experience of complaint handling. The second gathered evidence of how NHS trust boards use information from complaints to put things right and to learn. The third piece of research brought together patients, complainants, carers and NHS staff to participate in a two-day workshop on the NHS hospital complaints system.

Morphine available to just 1% cancer sufferers

Morphine available to just 1% cancer sufferers | senior home care | Scoop.it

 When the winter session of Parliament begins on December 5, millions of cancer patients hope lawmakers will clear a long-awaited amendment that will allow them easier access to morphine.

 

Morphine, one of the best known pain-control medicines, is available to barely 1% of all patients suffering from pain arising out of their cancer or HIV/AIDS infection, say experts. "India has 2.4 million cancer patients who need pain relief and another 2.5 million living with HIV. These patients sometimes suffer unbearable pain that is best relieved by morphine," said Thiruvananthapuram-based Dr M R Rajagopal, who is often referred to as the father of palliative care in India.

 

Last two sessions of the houses failed to take up the amendment to the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985. Dubbing its poor access as a human rights violation, Dr Rajagopal said, "We hope the amendment will be passed this time.''

 

Morphine is classified as a narcotic under the NDPS Act, resulting in tight restrictions to prevent misuse. The law states that anybody found with 250 grams of morphine without adequate licences could face up to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment.

❂Diabetes is on the rise, yet most cases are preventable with healthy lifestyle changes. Some can even be reversed.

 

❂it is a condition in which the glucose level in the blood rises considerably.

 

❂This is a situation where the pancreas doesn’t produce the insulin........Taking steps to prevent and control diabetes doesn’t mean living in deprivation.

 

❂While eating right is important, you don’t have to give up sweets entirely or resign yourself to a lifetime of bland “health food”.

Wireless system provides continuous health monitoring of elderly

Wireless system provides continuous health monitoring of elderly | senior home care | Scoop.it

Fraunhofer FIT has demonstrated a mobile wireless system that monitors the health of elderly people in their own homes with miniature sensors.

 

Such Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)systems continuously monitor the patients’ health in their homes and can help reduce the number of visits to the doctor. Miniaturised sensors integrated in mobile devices that are connected to medical centres can monitor and diagnose patients in their homes without reducing their quality of life.


In use, a nano potentiostat measures biochemical information in a patient’s assay, such as glucose, lactate or cholesterol levels.

 

A fluorescence sensor is used to detect colour-marked biomarkers whilst an SpO2 sensor monitors heart rate and arterial oxygen saturation.

 

A smartphone app then processes the data from the three sensors and transfers them to a server. For secure data communication, a Bluetooth connection with a specifically developed protocol is used.

 

As devices that measure biometrical data do not use standardised protocols, they developed a sensor platform that takes the data from the different sensors, processes them and sends them to a smartphone. The smartphone can then transmit the data to the patient’s physician.
