Six questions to ask when searching for online health information

Six questions to ask when searching for online health information | Safety Database Hosting | Scoop.it

Nearly 60% of U.S. adults look for health information online, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in Washington. And one-quarter of U.S. adults have read someone else’s writing about their medical issues in a blog or on a website.

 

More than 95 million Americans visited websites related to health, fitness and nutrition in June, according to Nielsen. That’s more than two out of five people who were active online that month. WebMD Health Network led the way with 24.6 million unique U.S. users, followed by Everyday Health, Yahoo! Health sites, Livestrong.com and About.com Health, Nielsen found.

 

Here are six questions to ask yourself when searching for online health information:

 

1. Are you going to multiple sites and not just stopping at one commercial site, such as the drug manufacturer’s website, for your information?

 

2. Do you winnow your printed material down to a manageable load before you present it to your doctor?

 

3. Are you working with a doctor or clinical team that’s open to discussing what you find online?

 

4. Have you browsed the websites of national nonprofit organizations dedicated to your condition?

 

5. Have you overlooked patients’ experience close to home in favor of online groups?

 

6. Are you using the buddy system?

When surfing the net always ask yourself "Who is paying for this website, and what is their agenda?"

Look for heathcare sites that are HON-certified (look for the HON logo). "Health on the Net" has 8 patient-protection principles that a site must adhere to before they are certified. (Read about HON on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_On_the_Net_Foundation)

Organizations That Perform Contract Research For Clinical Trials And Studies Are Key To Success

New products that are developed for medical use can be tested by contract research organizations that specialize in conducting clinical trials. Small patient-number trials are conducted by experts who are dedicated to performing this service to test emerging biotechnologies, gene therapy, plasma products, as well as other biologics and various products. Recruiting individuals to participate is a small part of what needs to be accomplished in order to perform a clinical study. In order for a contract research organization to be successful it must consist of extremely knowledgeable professionals who are very well credentialed from various research disciplines and are also very well trained to perform customer service that is superior. The key to successful trials and research is locating a team that always thinks ahead and is prepared to respond quickly to emergent circumstances and changing needs, and associates who listen carefully and communicate clearly and honestly at all times. You can be confident that data integrity is maintained and patient ethics are protected along with complete maximization of your research dollars when your study is conducted by highly trained project managers who work closely with the clinical research associates. The nature of clinical research is usually difficult and often unpredictable, so costs involved are occasionally a concern. Fixed price contracts eliminate the requirement for hourly billing, which allows the study team to focus on managing the trial rather than worrying about the budget making it a good choice. Contract research can be best conducted by well-trained professionals who have gone through a structured professional development program that stresses customer service, good clinical practice and regulatory standards. Customer service is an important part of clinical research and requires monitors and project managers to be well trained and knowledgeable while at the same time attentive and responsive to the clinical trial participants. Promising products and therapies can become a reality in a timely manner and within an allotted budget through the help of clinical trial management services. Some of the most difficult and challenging problems that face research today are solved by a joint effort of professionals who are dedicated and passionate about the work and the people who are involved. This could not be achieved without staff who are knowledgeable, dedicated, listen carefully and communicate honestly to respond promptly as they think ahead at all times with a superior work ethic. All of those attributes are imperative in order to properly oversee the participants whose lives are on the line and in the hands of those skillful clinical trial management teams. If there are aspects you need to clarify you can always follow clinical trial management or simply click here .

Mindfulness Means Nothing

Mindfulness Means Nothing | Safety Database Hosting | Scoop.it

I am on my way to a Mets game and my friend Ken asks, “What is mindfulness?”   It’s not an uncommon question for me.  It’s in my writing, my medical practice, the classes I lead, and my everyday life.   So you’d think I’d have a pithy answer that perhaps would last less than the hour we’ll be stuck in ballpark traffic, but I don’t.   Mindfulness has become harder and harder for me to define the more I know about it.

Food, drink industries undermine health policy, study finds

Food, drink industries undermine health policy, study finds | Safety Database Hosting | Scoop.it

Multinational food, drink and alcohol companies are using strategies similar to those employed by the tobacco industry to undermine public health policies, health experts said on Tuesday.

 

In an international analysis of involvement by so-called "unhealthy commodity" companies in health policy-making, researchers from Australia, Britain, Brazil and elsewhere said self-regulation was failing and it was time the industry was regulated more stringently from outside.

 

The researchers said that through the aggressive marketing of ultra-processed food and drink, multinational companies were now major drivers of the world's growing epidemic of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

 

Writing in The Lancet medical journal, the researchers cited industry documents they said revealed how companies seek to shape health legislation and avoid regulation.
