SANJIV KAKAR Medical Developments and Patient Unrest in the Leprosy Asylum, 1860 to 1940 Introduction Organized protest by handicapped persons which includes leprosy patients with developed deformities is not uncommon nowadays. Protest can take various forms, such as petitioning the state for initiating or implementing rehabilitation programmes in Salem district leprosy patients with deformities have a lobby of their own ; more assertive forms include demonstration in public places and courting arrest. Such efforts aim at social reintegration of the handicapped. In the case of leprosy, such visible and public demonstrations would have been unthinkable in the past, because of strong public prejudice regarding leprosy, also because of low morale of patients, many of whom internalized age-old myths about leprosy. A brief medical description is useful here. With the introduction of the Multi-Drug therapy in India since the...

Thousands of human beings, mostly poor, have lost their lives. The tragedy has brought to the fore several issues : those on which immediate action is needed by the government to cope up with the situation created by the disaster in Bhopal and those aspects which arc general in nature and would have to be addressed by revamping existing executive measures and legislation to prevent and manage the disasters like the one which occured in Bhopal. The tragedy also highlights the need for strengthening of institutions concerned with research, monitoring and control of delayed effects and second order impacts, monitoring and regulation of environmental pollution and occupational/industrial health hazards. All these issues require concerted action A DSF team visited Bhopal from 9th to llth December, 1984. It met several disaster victims ...

OBITUARY Krishna Bharadwaj 21 August 1935 - 8 March 1992 Krishna Bharadwaj was bom on 21 August 1935 in Karwar, Kamataka, the youngest child of M.S. Chandavarkar, a teacher in the local college, and Shantabai. The family shifted in 1939 to Belgaum after he joined Belgaum College, so it was in Belgaum that Krishna had her schooling. Belgaum was then, and remains today, a famous centre of classical music; from about six years of age onwards Krishna took regular lessons in singing. Her proficiency was evident very early, and her talent in Hindustani classical vocal won her trophies in major competitions by the time she was fifteen. For a time Krishna did in fact seriously think in terms of a musical career, but a persistent throat infection forced her to give up the idea. What the world of classical music lost, the world of classical political economy gained, for academic brilliance no less than musical talent was to characterise her career. A combination of...

... a Library. Social Scientist. 198-99 Nov-Dec 1989 p. BRAHMA NAND* Some Problems Relating to Horizontal and Vertical Expansion in Colonial Agriculture in Western India The problem of underdevelopment in colonial agriculture has been a subject of much controversy. Dutt remarked that the land tax levied by the British government was not only excessive but it was also fluctuating and uncertain. This uncertainty of the land tax paralysed agriculture, prevented savings and kept the tiller of the soil in a state of poverty and indebtedness. The criticism was directed especially against the governments of Bombay and Madras which absorbed approximately the whole of the surplus leaving the cultivators little beyond the wages of their labour and the profits of their agricultural stock.1 The colonial government recorded an emphatic dissent. It was argued that in the Bombay Presidency in the 40 years ending in 1895-96, cultivation had increased from 14.75 to 23.33 million acres or about 60 per cent acreage expansion, a...

*  Does Social Science Deserve Public Funding?
Does Social Science Deserve Public Funding. February 8. February 26. February 45. February 38. February 6. John Sides notes that the Congressional Republicans have resumed their attack on federal funding of social science. There is an appropriate and necessary role for the federal government to ensure funding for basic medical research. Funds currently spent by the government on social science including on politics of all things would be better spent helping find cures to diseases. Cantor's argument is not that social science has no merit; it is that other policy goals should have priority. If 'A' is medical research and 'B' is social science research, it might make sense to prioritize the medical research. Many people believe that the US is not spending nearly enough on infrastructure, health care for all, education, alternative energy programs, public transportation systems, and biomedical research. Cantor has laid down a challenge: can the social sciences demonstrate that their work is a better investment ...

An even larger proportion of scientists actively working in climate change have similar views: 97 percent of them believe human-caused global warming is under way, although there is plenty of disagreement about the details see related article, Page A15.

How sociologists and other social scientists can use Pinterest. I have recently discovered Pinterest, a social media platform which has recently become very popular. Because of its emphasis on the visual, it is most relevant for the purposes of curating and displaying images that are related to the subject matter one is researching or teaching about. Pinterest boards can be used by sociologists for the following purposes:. To display images which are related to the topic of a book or research article you have published. To display images of book covers written by others on topics related to your boards that you have found especially useful or interesting. Giving your students access to a set of images that are related to the unit subject are teaching. For example, the third edition of one of my books, Medicine as Culture: Illness, Disease and the Body,  was recently published. The book discusses the ways in which medicine, health and illness are understood, represented and experienced via social and cultura...

*  Microbiome meets big social science: What's the potential?
October 16, 2013 Microbiome meets big social science: What's the potential. "We're recognizing that the biosphere is run by microbes at every level," notes UW-Madison Professor of Medical Microbiology and Immunology Margaret McFall-Ngai. The new understanding of the role of microbial communities in human health, and the growing community of researchers studying the microbiome—the totality of microbes and their genomes in a given environment—could soon begin to emerge in the large longitudinal studies that have long been a hallmark of the social sciences at UW-Madison. A September workshop sponsored by the Center for the Demography and Health and Aging and the Center for Demography and Ecology, sought to bring UW-Madison biologists and social scientists together to explore the microbial dimensions of human health. "We want to see if we can push things beyond small projects by linking to these larger population studies." UW-Madison is home to half a dozen very large longitudinal population health studies, inclu...

Abstract This paper outlines the findings of the psychosocial and psychological literature on the impact of mothers and primary caregivers’ HIV infection on maternal well-being, childcare and child adjustment. Some of the key findings that emerge from the literature are that children of HIV positive mothers are at greater risk for emotional and psychological problems than children of uninfected mothers, especially internalising problems such as depression.

... To create a fossil fuel alternative we must find an energy source that is cheaper, easier, and better than fossil fuel. Private resources, such as time and expertise, were focused on making ethanol work in order to procure government money. If there had been no government money in ethanol research, engineers and scientists in the energy industry would have had a greater incentive to look elsewhere for a good alternative. But when the government creates a market there is no need to look elsewhere. I hoped that such obtuseness was confined to the social scientists but now that I have shifted my attention to health related science and climate related science, I find the same impermeability to facts and logic. Since my academic background is in the social sciences, it is reasonable to ask what a social scientist is doing talking about global warming. And from a philosophy of science viewpoint, far from being "the science", Warmism is not even an attempt at a factual statement, let alone being science. To mak...

Today in Your Health, we asked NPR's science correspondent Shankar Vedantam to come by to talk about how tragedies shape our perceptions of risk. SHANKAR VEDANTAM, BYLINE: Good morning, David. GREENE: So tell us what we know from school shootings of the past. VEDANTAM: Well, David, if the history of these mass shootings is any guide, many parents are going to wake up this morning being fearful about sending their kids to school. VEDANTAM: Well, I think with kids, the picture is slightly different, because kids are going to be all over the place. There's some kids who are going to know a lot about what happened on Friday, and there are other kids who are going to know very, very little. But again, if the history ...

When Heat Kills: Global Warming As Public Health Threat. When Heat Kills: Global Warming As Public Health Threat By. Luber and his colleagues may not wade into the contentious issue about the role that human beings play in warming up the planet, "but when we show the evidence that a changing climate does affect their health, people become very concerned and believe it ought to be addressed." In the past few years, social scientists have been exploring this issue. "Not only does it lead to emotionally engaging responses among a broad cross section of Americans, it also helps to localize the issue for people and to view the issue as more personally relevant," Nisbet says. I don't want to hear there's going to be more malaria, there's going to be more West Nile virus, or worse ozone or there's going to be more asthma,' or any connection you might be able to make for climate change." He says people will respond to ideas that help them personally, help their families, and help their communities. So, some social sc...

Shedding further light on the wider open access debate, Martin Eve calls for a more precise terminology for the variety of Gold OA business models that currently exist to help correct the false assumption in many academics minds that Gold OA necessarily requires an Article Processing Charge APC. A common misunderstanding is that all OA journals use an “author pays” business model. In fact, most OA journals 70% charge no author-side fees at all. Moreover, most conventional or non-OA journals 75% do charge author-side fees. When OA journals do charge fees, the fees are often paid by author-sponsors employers or funders or waived, not paid by autho...

« “Communication is a central task of statistics, and ideally a state-of-the-art data analysis can have state-of-the-art displays to match”. Social scientists who use medical analogies to explain causal inference are, I think, implicitly trying to borrow some of the scientific and cultural authority of that field for our own purposes ». Real rothko, fake rothko. One day a painting is worth $8.3 million; the next day, the same painting – same quality, same capacity to give aesthetic pleasure or do whatever it is that art does – is “worthless.”* Art forgery also makes me wonder about the buyer’s motive. If the buyer wanted only to have and to gaze upon something beautiful, something with artistic merit, then a fake Rothko is no different than a real Rothko.

How an argument for offering Bayesian decision analysis to intended subjects of genetic screening can be derived from medical and social scientists’ views Recommendation to distribute more genetic and related information The point of departure for my analysis in the rest of this chapter is the premise that there prevails a certain agreement among the geneticists and some of those Finnish social scientists who have studied genetics-related phenomena. The agreement is expressed not only by Aula and Leisti 1994 and Hietala 1998, but also by Jallinoja et al. For instance, regarding knowledge gaps, five of the twenty-five women who were found to be carriers of the AGU gene mutation and who responded to the questionnaire thought that they had not got enough information before the test Hietala et al. Possibilities to improve the information distributed to subjects of the AGU screening Mothers who were the intended subjects of the AGU pilot screening were told about the matter during their first visit to a maternity ...

Interactive Classification and Practice in the Social Sciences. Hacking’s claim is that social scientific classificatory work is interactive, while natural scientific classificatory work is indifferent. When the natural scientist articulates a new category or classification, she does not change anything about the object or objects under study. By contrast, social scientific ways of classifying interact with their objects in a two-way process that Hacking terms the ‘looping effects’ of human kinds. The classifications of the social sciences are available to be known and understood by their human objects of classification. Hacking’s standard response to this type of case is to point to the fact that the object of classification in these cases is not aware of the ways in which it is classified. The social sciences, on the other hand, study objects that are aware in this way. Hacking wants to hold autism as an example of a social scientific interactive kind at work Hacking 1999, pp. The classifications of the soc...

(1/130) Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism?

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

(2/130) How can statistical mechanics contribute to social science?

A model of interdependent decision making has been developed to understand group differences in socioeconomic behavior such as nonmarital fertility, school attendance, and drug use. The statistical mechanical structure of the model illustrates how the physical sciences contain useful tools for the study of socioeconomic phenomena.  (+info)

(3/130) How will we know "good" qualitative research when we see it? Beginning the dialogue in health services research.

OBJECTIVE: To lay the foundation for an explicit review and dialogue concerning the criteria that should be used to evaluate qualitative health services research. Clear criteria are critical for the discipline because they provide a benchmark against which research can be assessed. DATA SOURCES: Existing literature in the social sciences and health services research, particularly in primary care and medicine. PRINCIPAL FINDING: Traditional criteria for evaluating qualitative research are rooted in the philosophical perspective (positivism) most closely associated with quantitative research and methods. As a result, qualitative research and methods may not be used as frequently as they can be and research results generated from qualitative studies may not be disseminated as widely as possible. However, alternative criteria for evaluating qualitative research have been proposed that reflect a different philosophical perspective (post-positivism). Moreover, these criteria are tailored to the unique purposes for which qualitative research is used and the research designs traditionally employed. While criteria based on these two different philosophical perspectives have much in common, some important differences exist. CONCLUSION: The field of health services research must engage in a collective, "qualitative" process to determine which criteria to adopt (positivist or post-positivist), or whether some combination of the two is most appropriate. Greater clarity about the criteria used to evaluate qualitative research will strengthen the discipline by fostering a more appropriate and improved use of qualitative methods, a greater willingness to fund and publish "good" qualitative research, and the development of more informed consumers of qualitative research results.  (+info)

(4/130) Understanding life-style and food use: contributions from the social sciences.

The contribution of social sciences to the study of life-style and food use in Britain is illustrated by drawing on recent evidence of purchasing patterns, reports of the organisation of meals, snacks, eating out and images of the origins of food. Work discussed underlines a considerable degree of empirical complexity, demonstrates that the supply side as well as demand should be taken into account, and illustrates the manner in which even supposedly highly voluntaristic spheres of consumption activity may none the less be circumscribed. The article is prefaced by briefly contrasting the approach to 'life-style' adopted by market researchers, public health professionals and social theorists. It concludes with the proposal that in order to understand the complexity surrounding human food use, we may be advised to consider ensuring that the descriptive and conceptual tools being used can capture that complexity.  (+info)

(5/130) Toward an informatics research agenda: key people and organizational issues.

As we have advanced in medical informatics and created many impressive innovations, we also have learned that technologic developments are not sufficient to bring the value of computer and information technologies to health care systems. This paper proposes a model for improving how we develop and deploy information technology. The authors focus on trends in people, organizational, and social issues (POI/OSI), which are becoming more complex as both health care institutions and information technologies are changing rapidly. They outline key issues and suggest high-priority research areas. One dimension of the model concerns different organizational levels at which informatics applications are used. The other dimension draws on social science disciplines for their approaches to studying implications of POI/OSI in informatics. By drawing on a wide variety of research approaches and asking questions based in social science disciplines, the authors propose a research agenda for high-priority issues, so that the challenges they see ahead for informatics may be met better.  (+info)

(6/130) The utility of social capital in research on health determinants.

Social capital has become a popular subject in the literature on determinants of health. The concept of social capital has been used in the sociological, political science, and economic development literatures, as well as in the health inequalities literature. Analysis of its use in the health inequalities literature suggests that each theoretical tradition has conceptualized social capital differently. Health researchers have employed a wide range of social capital measures, borrowing from several theoretical traditions. Given the wide variation in these measures and an apparent lack of consistent theoretical or empirical justification for their use, conclusions about the likely role of "social capital" on population health may be overstated or even misleading. Elements of a research agenda are proposed to further elucidate the potential role of factors currently subsumed under the rubric of "social capital."  (+info)

(7/130) Occupational health and social resources.

There is a relationship between the changes in work-related diseases and the following factors: the transformation of the organization of work, organizational development, as well as human and social changes in the work environment. These factors also influence the maintenance of industrial health and safety standards at work. Safety technology will continue to be important, but will be reduced in significance compared to the so-called soft factors, that is, all dimensions and parameters affecting people's health and social environment at the work place. It seems that in the future the relationship between the social resource development and work protection will become more relevant. Social resource development influences the quality of work performance and motivation, the quality of work and work protection, the likelihood of accidents and breakdowns, and the level of self-control and capacity of change. The consequences of work protection research will be discussed in this article with a focus on the contribution of social sciences.  (+info)

(8/130) Attitudes of Hungarian students and nurses to physician assisted suicide.

In Hungary, which has one of the highest rates of suicide in the world, physician assisted suicide (PAS) and euthanasia are punishable criminal acts. Attitudes towards self destruction and assisted suicide are, however, very controversial. We investigated the attitudes of medical students, nurses and social science students in Hungary towards PAS, using a twelve item scale: the total number of participants was 242. Our results indicate a particular and controversial relationship between attitudes towards assisted suicide in Hungary and experience with terminally ill people. The social science students, who had the fewest personal experiences with terminally ill patients, are characterised by the most permissive attitudes towards assisted suicide. Nurses, who had everyday contact and experience with these patients, were the most conservative, being least supportive of assisted suicide. The attitudes of medical students, the would be physicians, are somewhere between those of nurses and social science students.  (+info)


What is the starting salary for Medical Assistant with no experiences(I am a social science major, Not a RN)?


I recently got an offer from a SMALL doctor's clinic as a medical assistant. (doing front desk work, processing insurance, etc)

I practically do all the front desk/receptionist work including paperwork etc. and help out with the back office work (i.e getting patient ready, operating visual test etc)

It is a small practice. 
What should be my salary expectation?

I am a social science major.
----------

probably 20-30K a year, depending on how often you work.


How are all social sciences related? 10 POINTS BEST ANSWER?


I think its has something to do with the fact that all social sciences revolve around human life, activity, and history. 

If you have more  info, or a better reason that would help too! =)
Its for my homework

sorry, i know this is the wrong catagory but u get the most answers here

I'd say your answer pretty much sums it up! All social sciences deal with human beings in one way.


How does in tackle a problem with ADD and concentration problems in school?


I have had this problem since middle school. I recently have learned to force myself to focus in easier classes like the social sciences, however it's still very much a problem in more denser and challenging classes. Things like math really kill me. Once I feel the slightest bit of self doubt or confusion, class cascades into a huge daydream for me. It's not as much of a problem in classes like biology, because if I do wander off I can always just read the book at home. Math kills me because it heavily relies on being sharp and understanding the material being taught. I was wondering if I should seek out an herbal supplement that could help me focus, or maybe homeopathic remedies? Oh, and my apathy and daydreaming occur more frequently early in the morning. Has anyone gone through a similar experience? What did you do to solve it?
----------

I was the same way and to some extent still am.  I never took medication and wouldn't want to.  Math can be brutal and I found that I learned better on my own anyway so spacing out in class didn't hold me back.  I would say as long as you can make yourself focus if you have to you'll be fine without meds.


What are the chances that I'd face discrimination in the job market in Europe if I have a nose piercing?

----------

It's not descrimination, you'd get. It's "if you want to work here take it out." descrimination is when you can't help the thing. in this case, it would be stipulation, which you might very well face. But, I couldn't be sure.


What's a really good way to gain experience in the field of public health during the summer?


I would like to pursue my education in public health. I'm from a social science/international development background. I am mostly interested in injuries, violence, mental health and women's health. I'm volunteering at the Sexual Assault Center but I'm sure there's something else I could do during the summer.
----------

You can also try volunteering at any state run facility for the mentally handicapped. There you will find mental,physical, and aggressive behavior patients all at one facility. You will probably have to go through a 2 week safety training session for both the safety of yourself and the people there. You might also try to volunteer at a place for women that have been in a physically abusive relationship. I would imagine you might have to go though the state or county for that because of the safety issues. Good luck and God Bless. This is a very hard career to work in. I actually did most of my nursing in a state facility. People like yourself are desperately needed and I'm sure you'll find that there are so many rewards that you'll be glad you did. It's a very hard job, but your will be gratified in the care of the people that you come in contact with.


Is there someone that has aspergers or a family member with aspergers?

The prudish approach to sexual education in this country leads to a huge amount of problems: rising numbers of teen pregnancies and children in danger of STDs.
There is no "too early" if it comes to sexual education and the right time is when your child asks you a question. "This goes for everything: from where do babies come from?" to "Mummy, where can you can you buy those funny balloons?" By doing this you take the fascination of "everything forbidden" from sex, teach your child a responsible attitude towards sex and in the long run you might save your kid from pregnancy aged 13 or contracting HIV aged 15 1/2.
