Customer Reviews
In April 2015 I experienced a major Bipolar relapse, after suffering at the hands of bullies at work. At the time, I was working for the worlds largest charity and was unaware that my relapse, was due to their negligence, failure to follow Health and Safety rules and a disregard for the protection of members of staff. <br />Other employees were also suffering, all because of a sociopathic boss. I was taken out of work, to recover, in the Easter of 2015; a time I can’t really recall in great detail, because of medication I was prescribed. I decided to write a blog to explain to the world, what I was going through on a daily basis. It was my way of coming to terms, with the extraordinary events, that were the beginning, of a journey, I am still on today.

Care in emergency departments, is exposed to many threats under the short time that will account for making decisions that can endanger the life of patients. Overcrowding in emergency departments is an additional problem which we have to face every day in social care institutions in our country and that significantly increases the risk of technical errors. Errors in care medical diagnostics and treatments in México are very common, and in addition to generating human suffering, entail significant increase in the costs of care, in addition to a loss of confidence in institutions and a greater risk of medico legal problems. This takes special importance when we attend patients in the emergency room, where the errors can be fatal. Many of these errors can prevent when all the personal knows them processes and manages to secure the safety of the patient. In social care institutions in México, many of the errors in the care medical are latent type, it means that are not caused by the operators in services, without by inadequate facilities, lack of inputs, insufficient human resources, shortcomings in the systems, errors in designs and poor administrative decisions.1-3<br /><br />Emergency physicians, have to engage in the administrative process, with the intention to create interdisciplinary teams to improve care in our hospital emergency services. Knowledge of the technical aspects is indispensable and the physicians in charge of these services must have these skills, gain additional knowledge in relation to processes and tools of continuous improvement in quality, administrative tools basic, as well as aspects of patient safety. 1-3<br /><br />In the emergency department often received patients with peptic acid syndrome caused by drug-induced gastritis because of the indiscriminate use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), to prescribe medicines to inadequate doses, or whose selection is not appropriate due to age or previous pathology conditions of patients. In this sense, the article published in the present number “Gastric injury induced by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and therapeutic strategies for prevention”4, give us important information in relationship to the damage caused by the NSAIDs and some strategies of prevention this injury to the gastric mucosa. This prevention is one of the aspect most important to reduce the period of stay of patients in hospitals. 1-3 On the other hand, the following three articles interesting, “Dual diagnosis: a paradigm shift for addiction treatment by Gómez Benumea”, “Teenage pregnancy: a public health problem extensively studied but with no effective responses by González Espíndola and Paz Bautista” and finally “Maternal feeding and nutritional status of her children: A bibliographic review by Balderrama Díaz and Guzmán Saldaña” are published in the present number of the Journal. 5-7 All health professionals should be well-informed and up-to-date for a good performance of their daily activities. For this reason, we invite the scientific community to visit this Journal and read the publications. We also invite to the health professionals and scientists to contribute with us and submit articles for possible publication in the journal.

Ce livre repose sur la volonté des auteurs de diffuser les outils et les modèles de transformations du système de santé basés sur la théorie « Zero Marginal Cost » de Jeremy Rifkin.<br />Cette tentative ambitieuse de rendre disponible et utilisable un modèle collaboratif pour la santé, pour les maladies et les soins, répond à la nécessité de l’être humain de retrouver un lien avec lui-même et avec le monde qui l’entoure. Les politiques environnementales, économiques, sociales et technologiques devront être axées sur la protection de l’homme et de son environnement. Les inévitables répercussions sur la santé pourront être de plus en plus évitées grâce au nouveau paradigme de la communication, grâce à des choix responsables et au soutien essentiel d’internet. Le passage d’une médecine hiérarchique structurée à une médecine intégrée et développée, intègre l’être humain dans le rôle de responsable de lui-même, et la communauté axée sur la santé comme point d’arrivée, et non plus seulement comme un point de départ ni comme un devoir social bien avant d’être un droit fondamental.<br />Un élan visionnaire, probablement, mais, pour reprendre les mots de notre référence intellectuelle, « It’s already happening ».<br />
