Lessons for the NHS when dealing with dementia patients

My experience of my mother living with dementia for five years has given me an insight as to what we as carers need to do differently. The first point is that hospital is not a good place for people with dementia. The other important lessons are:

•Look beyond prescribing to mange aggressive behaviour•Help carers understand it’s not memory, but the architecture of memory that gets forgotten•Evolve extra care to incorporate dementia care•Pay carers more than the minimum wage
•If home is the best place for care, make it work

New framework “to revolutionise” care for elderly patients | Integrated Care Today

New framework “to revolutionise” care for elderly patients | Integrated Care Today | Smart Healthcare | Scoop.it

New research from Northumbria University could revolutionise the way nurses care for the elderly, claims a leading nurse professional.

Funded by Health Education England, researchers have developed a National Career Framework to ensure that nursing staff have the skills and expertise they need to care for older people with complex needs.

Led by Pauline Pearson, Professor of Nursing at Northumbria, the research team used a survey of healthcare experts, case studies and focus groups to find out which skills were required for nurses working predominantly with older people.

From this, they developed the framework which covers a wide range of areas, including values and behaviour, end of life care, clinical skills and safeguarding.

Professor Pearson explained: “The balance of people we look after has changed in nursing. We are caring for more older people than ever before and the reality is that these patients often have multiple conditions which require different types of care.

“We wanted to ensure that nurses are equipped with the skills they need to deal with this, and to do so we needed to think about this problem systematically. By using the framework, we can find out which departments need which skills most and identify units who do not have access to the expertise they need.”

The report – entitled ‘The design and development of a National Career Framework for nurses caring for older people with complex needs in England’ – will now be piloted in two hospitals – one in the North East

Jobs provide health insurance benefits or, at the very least, enough income for an individual to afford insurance through an ACA exchange. This is borne out by the increasing numbers of people obtaining ACA insurance in our state. For example, 472,697 people enrolled in such plans in Pennsylvania during the 2015 open enrollment period, 15% higher than anticipated! Of these, 41% were new enrollees.

Nanotube-packed pills could target cancer directly

Nanotube-packed pills could target cancer directly | Smart Healthcare | Scoop.it
Chemotherapy could one day be replaced by high-tech pills that directly target cancerous cells. New research into nanotechnology is looking to tackle huge problems on a tiny scale.

Sonia Trigueros, co-director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Nanotechnology at Oxford University, has been working with a team of chemists, physicists and engineers to coat nanotubes in drugs, wrap them in protective DNA and use them to kill cancer. Trigueros' work has been inspired by taking on cancer at its own nano scale. "All of the targets for the medicine are at the nano level," she explains.

"The aim of the project, that maybe happens in 20 years, is to [take] a pill made of these carbon nanotubes every year," Trigueros tells the audience at WIRED Health 2015. "As soon as you have one or two cancer cells these nanotubes target them. This kills the cancer before it gets to the tumour level."
CharlieY's insight:

Technology use because it's exciting and offer's potential, but doens't offer a sustainable model - a short-term innovation perhaps that will experience the life span of CDs?

The new surgeon general's 4 rules for health

"One is to eat healthy. I tend to avoid salt, added sugar, and processed foods whenever possible, and try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables as part of all my meals whenever possible.

"Second is to stay physically active. That means not just going to gym but incorporating activity into whatever I do, whether that’s taking the stairs or converting sitting meetings to walking meetings whenever possible.

"Third is making sure I’m focusing on my emotional and mental well-being. For me, an important part of that is the meditation practice that I do every morning. It’s a chance for me to center myself, a chance for me to remember who I want to be every day.

"The fourth thing is I remind myself to stay away from toxic substances like tobacco and drugs."
