The Most Effective and Responsible Clinical Training Techniques in Medicine

Alternative Types of Learning in Clinical Specialty-Interest Areas of Family-Practice Medicine

“If you believe that the broad aim of clinical instruction is about teaching medical procedures, you’re wrong. Whether an attending, a faculty member, or a another type of clinical instructor, believing this can hinder the learning process.”

Even though UMI published the first edition nearly two decades ago, Gary DePaul’s research findings and implications are even more relevant today.
From interviews with family-practice specialists from the Carle Clinic Association, Dr. DePaul discovered certain training techniques to be more effective at building specialty-interest area expertise while responsibly protecting patient safety and care. In addition, he discovered how a three-way, interlocking dilemma influences how specialists develop their specialty-interest area.

Hill's Heroes Vol 1 on Promocave

Hill's Heroes Vol 1 on Promocave | Writing | Scoop.it
Napoleon Hill’s iconic book ‘Think And Grow Rich continues to be read today. It’s a best seller of the most enduring kind. The secrets he distilled from the great men of his day still fascinate us even in our new technological age. A technological age that was in effect launched by several of the men in this book. Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb, without which there would not have been an electricity generating industry and by extension no need to invent all those electrical devices we so depend on now.

The Wright Brothers are here, pioneers of powered flight; where would we be without aircraft? Stuck at home or travelling rather more sedately is the answer. Pioneer of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell is here and Henry Ford who brought the motor car to the masses. The names of men like these are known to us, but in many cases their lives, their work and achievements, their personalities are not so familiar any more.

The Origin of F.O.R.C.E. on Promocave

The Origin of F.O.R.C.E. on Promocave | Writing | Scoop.it
The Chrysallaman mission was supposed to be simple, find a suitable planet for colonization. HG-281, otherwise known as Earth, seemed the perfect target. They left behind a broken ship, a dead crew and a young alien boy who would grow to become one of Earth’s greatest assets – and her greatest ally. Earth will need him because the Chrysallamans are angry, and they’re coming back!

Prologue

The scout ship, UurBereck, skimmed over the arid plain of Planet HG-281 at better than 700 miles per hour. The gravity drive was barely audible as no real effort was required to maintain the integrity of the anti-gravity pocket surrounding the space craft at such a low speed. Sitting in the command couch was DrrTrr Zennk, a ruthless officer of the Chrysallaman race, who had spent the last six months of his life trying to determine if HG-281 was suitable for colonization by his people. The ultimate decision was in the hands of the Emperor, but from everything Zennk had seen and heard, Planet HG-281 was a perfect prize. Excellent climate, gravity, fertile soil, and inhabited only by a primitive, animalistic culture so physically and technologically inferior they truly deserved to be annihilated to make room for the Chrysallamans. Zennk grinned to himself as he thought about the elevation in rank and privileges he would enjoy as a rewarded member of the exploration team that found the new world and claimed it in behalf of the Empire.
Standing beside him watching the view screen that covered nearly half the bulkhead in front of the ship’s main control panel was his son, WrrNrr Zennk. Bringing the 12-year old on the mission had been the decision of the kid’s mother who berated Zennk constantly, badgering him to agree to go on the exploratory mission and take their son with him. She had claimed the boy would gain valuable experience from the journey making him more apt to be selected in the future for military service. DrrTrr had finally agreed to take the kid with him. After all, agreement would stop her nagging, and HG-281 was 30 light years away from Chrysalis, the home planet of the Chrysallamans. DrrTrr and his son would sleep away the years in stasis while his horrid wife would continue to grow older. With a 60 year round trip and 6 months on the ground at HG-281, Zennk would return to a wife almost 61 years older than when he left. Fantastic! Maybe she would be dead by the time he got back. Wonderful!

Taking his eyes off the view screen and glancing at his son, DrrTrr Zennk was inwardly appalled at how much the boy looked and acted like his mother. All emotional and weak-minded. It was definitely for the best that he had spent the last 6 months with WrrNrr, teaching him respect for the power and dominance of the Chrysallaman military and its way of life.

“Father, why are we flying so slowly?”

“On this planet the speed of sound is 768 miles per hour. If we go over that speed our ship will create a shock wave audible to the animals on the ground. Flying silently gives us the advantage of stealth.”

“Are we almost ready to go home?” the youngster whined. “I’m getting tired of being cooped up in this metal can all the time.”

“Yes, our mission is virtually complete,” DrrTrr responded. “If you’re bored perhaps we can find something to stir up some excitement.”

Pointing his finger at a faint bluish glow on the left side of the view screen, Zennk said, “See that glowing indicator on the view screen?”

WrrNrr nodded his head and crossed his arms with childish impatience. “Father, I don’t want to do any more exploring. I just want to go home!”

“Yeah, yeah,” DrrTrr mumbled.

Pressing a stud on the comlink built into his combat vest, Zennk linked up with his onboard crew and announced, “All personnel. Prepare for capture of two animals. I want to stock up the larder. If we’re going to be heading home in the next week or so, I want to enjoy some fresh meat before we get stuck in stasis for another 30 years.”

A loud buzz suddenly sounded from the control board and Zennk looked up just in time to watch the ship’s automatic defenses use a cutter ray to blast a silvery object out of their flight path.

“Father, what do you think that floating silvery thing was?”

DrrTrr smiled at his son and said, “It matters not. There is nothing on this planet that can harm this ship.”

Turning his attention back to his control panel, Zennk swiveled the joystick that controlled the directional heat ray and locked its targeting sensor on the bluish image glowing now in the bottom center of the view screen. A look of smug confidence covered his face as he pushed the activation button.

Planting themselves in their terraformed biospheres, they intend to mine Magnum-4 down to its nickel core, keeping the planet’s wealth for themselves. To achieve their ends, they have created a “perfect” society ruled over by a vigilance committee that takes no prisoners.

Rehearsal Banquet on Promocave

Rehearsal Banquet on Promocave | Writing | Scoop.it
Rehearsal Banquet is a collection of poems on grief, love, break-up, environmental issues and comedy. The forty-four poems takes the reader through a series of lyrical verses that presents the world in a different perspective: a view between the surrealist and real. Small themes grow as the book progresses, into bigger, complicated ideas that riddles and plays with ambiguity. Like all poems, there are hidden truths, broken perspectives of the narrator, silent meanings that get better with each reading. It’s humorous, belligerently argumentative, and minimalist in presentation of its ideas. There are also two bonus short stories in the last five pages of the book, adding a pinch of heavy-reading after the lighthearted, contemporary poetry.

Pandora's Box on Promocave

Pandora's Box on Promocave | Writing | Scoop.it
Pandora’s Box

The opening of Pandora’s Box, which released the ‘evils of the world’ into existence, is perhaps one of the most well known of the Greek myths. However, much of the original meaning has been subject to cultural variations and scholarly interpretation. Myth is the language of the spirit, and a living reality in the present as long as we human beings are open to the romance and timeless profundity of life.

Pandora was the first woman in Greek mythology, created by Zeus, fashioned with beauty by Aphrodite and adorned with wisdom and artistry by certain other gods on mount Olympus. She was also bestowed, according to the myth, with less flattering attributes such as deceitfulness and cunning to better her status in the affairs of men. Zeus, still brooding and angry with Prometheus for stealing the secret of fire, arranged for Pandora to be given as a gift to Epimetheus, brother of Prometheus. Although warned not to accept gifts from the gods, Epimetheus was delighted to receive her. After a while, curious of a box (apparently a large jar used for storage of grain and sometimes a human body prior for burial), Pandora removed the lid, thereby releasing the diabolical contents and although she hastened to close it again, it was too late. The box was empty except for one thing remaining at the bottom: Elpis, the deity of hope, which also means ‘suffering’ in older translations of the myth.

The myths were created in the psyche in an era of human evolution when Man was in the process of becoming a self-conscious being. Pandora’s Box is symbolic of the body of mankind. In its pure state the box has nothing inside and is the purified space of love. It was not unlike the Arc of the Covenant, which was also emptied of any corruptive impurities. But as time and past began to build up in the psyche, blockages began to impede the flow of life. The pent-up psychic force reached a peak and penetrated the surface of the earth. This was the disease of time as an effect in existence which set in motion the long arduous descent into matter, and was the dawning of human nature.

The myth of Pandora’s Box, like all the great myths, is demonstrable in our ordinary living experience. The release of the ‘evils of the world’ is a familiar experience whenever there is an emotional outburst such as anger, hate, accusation or cruelty. When this happens, the reactionary self is a conduit for the degenerative effects of the human condition of unhappiness. Pandora’s Box is the body, the container of the essence of life. In the mythic consciousness, Zeus and the other gods had yet to fully externalise as physical beings. They could enter existence in physical form but were able to withdraw at will to the formless inner reality behind the appearance of the world.

Pandora has been largely misunderstood, just as Eve was blamed for the ills of mankind in the biblical myth of the Garden of Eden. Pandora is really the personification of love. It was ‘She’ in disguise, arising from the spirit of the earth, who valiantly unleashed the forces of existence to seemingly impose on humanity the most dreadful and heinous fate imaginable. But what must be endured as affliction and hardship is paradoxically the only way back for human beings to reclaim their original freedom. Until Pandora had opened the box, the state of immortal life had been the exclusive domain of the gods. The release of the evils of the world served to undermine the supremacy of the gods over mortal man. Thus was love the saviour of mankind.

The deity of hope was the only remnant in the box. But is there any hope in this world where everybody dies? Obviously not. But it’s a precious piece of propaganda that the human race clings to as comfort and avoidance of facing life as it is. Hope is the last thing that disappears when all is known to be lost and death is inevitable. Strangely, or miraculously, in that moment all fear vanishes and what remains is love. To me, the older translation of the word Elpis as ‘suffering’ is more appropriate, because to transcend hope while in the midst of living involves enormous self-sacrifice. Nobody has ever found God or freedom without undergoing tremendous inner turmoil and upheaval in external circumstances.

The spiritual task is to purify the inner space of the body through being emptied of negativity. Any moment when the unconscious force of self overwhelms the person, it releases the lid of Pandora’s box. Each of us is apportioned an individual box of karma, the past ignorance of humanity, to be faced as the difficulties in the living life. Suffering rightly is to have the knowledge of a higher purpose and to be willing to be disabused of the rational misconception of love and truth. The deeper the love of God, or the mystery of life, the more excruciating is the pain of detachment from the world. The highest truth demands the ultimate surrender, which Pandora in her wisdom knew would eventually triumph over adversity.
