This will be an issue at a GA review, so handeling now will spare you the headache later. I can say for near certainty there will not be any at milhist, but that may not be true over at WP:Sociology. Those at the GA review will come down hard on this as a result of shifting standards at FAC I found this out the hard way, as it was a major hangup for the Montana class battleship article during its FAC bid If at all possible try to figure out a way of getting the military sociology line in ahead of the definition of military and sociology; as it stands this formatting in the intro is ackward. Keep up the good work. TomStar81 Talk 02:20, 22 July 2008 UTC. I would suggest stating that MilSociology is the use of the discipline in the military context, then define the discipline and what is meant by military, with sources. I do recall that the Mil...

*  Unwarranted variation
... Health Dialog was built to directly address unwarranted variation in healthcare: the overuse, underuse and misuse of medical care. Wennberg and his colleagues further concluded that if unwarranted variation in the healthcare system could be reduced, the quality of care would go up and healthcare costs would go down. Studies have shown that if unwarranted variation could be reduced in the Medicare population, quality of care would rise dramatically and costs could be lowered by as much as 30%. Inspired by the work of Jack Wennberg, the first NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare was published in November 2010 by the Department of Health QIPP Right Care programme. A two-fold variation among strategic health authorities in the incidence of major amputations per 1000 patients with registered Type 2 diabetes and a five-fold variation in the percentage of people with diabetes receiving the NICE recommended nine key care processes A four-fold variation in directly standardised rate of elective admissions in pers...

*  Healthism
The term ‘healthism’ was most likely first used by the political economist Robert Crawford, whose article ‘Healthism and the medicalization of everyday life’ Robert Crawford, 'Healthism and the medicalization of everyday life'. In this article Crawford describes how the new political ideology, which emerged in the US during the 1970s, " the problem of health and disease at the level of the individual." The term is also known for its use in the 1994 book 'The Death of Humane Medicine and the Rise of Coercive Healthism' by Petr Skrabanek. Skrabanek: the threat of health fascism Nikolas Rose: a Foucauldian view See also References. In Skrabanek's view, "healthism" goes hand in hand with what he calls "lifestylism", another neologism, which Skrabanek uses to describe the view that most diseases are the result of unhealthy habits or behaviour. But since according to Skrabanek this message would lead to a fatalistic rejection of the lifestyle doctrine, it must be recast to be socially and politically acceptable, qu...

*  Biopsychosocial model
The biopsychosocial paradigm is also a technical term for the popular concept of the "mind–body connection", which addresses more philosophical arguments between the biopsychosocial and biomedical models, rather than their empirical exploration and clinical application. However a closer reading of Engel's seminal paper in the American Journal of Psychiatry 1980 embeds the biopsychosocial model far more closely into patient care. it is not just about causation but about how any clinical condition medical, surgical or psychiatric can either be seen narrowly as just biological or more widely as a condition with psychological and social components, which will impinge on a patient's understanding of her condition and will affect the clinical course of that condition. The biopsychosocial model of health is based in part on social cognitive theory. The biopsychosocial model implies that treatment of disease processes, for example type two diabetes and cancer, requires that the health care team address biological, ps...

School and Allergies, Asthma. Food Allergy Backlash Boards the Bus. From the Allergic Living archives; this popular article was published in the magazine in 2009. One single peanut is noticed on the floor of a school bus and the 10-year-old riders are all told to get out immediately, because of food allergy risks. Nicholas Christakis, a professor of medical sociology at Harvard Medical School, and published last December in the British Medical Journal. Food allergy groups and parents of kids living with the risk of anaphylaxis were put on the defensive, while leading allergists only got to add their brief comments on the media debate as responses to Christakis’s statements. Yet in writing of needless hysteria, Christakis in fact increased the anxiety within the food allergy community. The widespread attention has had a polarizing effect on those on either side of the school accommodations issue, and now, after many advances have been won to protect students at risk of anaphylaxis, at least one major newsp...

See post here at orgtheory, with the full sociology top 10 listed in the comments.

*  Isomorphism (sociology)
In sociology, an 'isomorphism' is a similarity of the processes or structure of one organization to those of another, be it the result of imitation or independent development under similar constraints. There are three main types of institutional isomorphism: normative, coercive and mimetic. The development that these three types of isomorphism promote can also create isomorphic paradoxes that hinder such development. The concept appears in their classical paper ' The iron cage revisited: institutional isomorphism and collective rationality in organizational fields ' from 1983. As it is emphasized by realist theories the heterogeneity of economic and political resource or local cultural origins by the micro-phenomenological theories, many ideas suggest that there are diversity existing in political units around the world of trajectories of change. Isomorphic developments of same conclusion are reported from nay nation-states' features, that is, constitutional forms highlighting both state power and individual ...

*  Branches of Sociology
Sociology is a fairly broad realm of scientific study and is divided into several different types of sociology, or branches of sociology. When you choose to pursue a sociology degree, you can minor in a particular type of sociology or take a series of elective courses in various branches of sociology. All in all, sociologists study human behavior and interactions, and how different events, institutions and influences make certain people behave in a certain way. Some types of sociology focus more on environmental influences while others hone in on groups and how people and organizations tend to self-organize. They are all focused on studying cultural and social phenomena, and the sociologist may use scientific data to draw conclusions and develop theories about why people behave in a certain way. The main types of sociology can be defined as follows: Social organization - this is the study of different institutions, such as educational institutions, the institution of marriage, social stratification and even t...

Work by Craig Humphrey and Frederick Buttel 2002 traces the linkages between Darwin's work on natural selection, human ecological sociology, and environmental sociology. Neo-Marxist ideas of conflict sociology were applied to capital/state/labor/ environmental conflicts instead of only labor/capital/state conflicts over production. So "Eco-Marxism" was based on using Neo-Marxist conflict sociology concepts of the relative autonomy of the state applied to environmental conflict.

(1/169) Reflexivity--a strategy for a patient-centred approach in general practice.

Reflexivity as a strategy in general practice can be used to implement a patient-centred approach in the consultation. General practice has long represented a tradition attempting to integrate both illness and disease. For the GP, it is natural to focus on the patient's whole situation, and the GP's experience with patients is often based on a long-term relationship. Reflexivity implies having a self-conscious account of the production of knowledge as it is being produced. We believe that GPs can gain access to additional knowledge by consciously using reflexivity as a strategy in the consultation. In the present article, we discuss reflexivity in relation to the notions of empathy, personal experience and self-knowledge. By using reflexivity in order to rely on personal experience, the GP can gain access to patients' understanding of their health. Reflexivity can be a valuable concept for the GP in patient-centred medicine and can contribute to bridging the gap between the patient's perspective and the doctor's understanding of the patient's health.  (+info)

(2/169) Organisational sources of safety and danger: sociological contributions to the study of adverse events.

Organisational sociology has long accepted that mistakes of all kinds are a common, even normal, part of work. Medical work may be particularly prone to error because of its complexity and technological sophistication. The results can be tragic for individuals and families. This paper describes four intrinsic characteristics of organisations that are relevant to the level of risk and danger in healthcare settings--namely, the division of labour and "structural secrecy" in complex organisations; the homophile principle and social structural barriers to communication; diffusion of responsibility and the "problem of many hands"; and environmental or other pressures leading to goal displacement when organisations take their "eyes off the ball". The paper argues that each of these four intrinsic characteristics invokes specific mechanisms that increase danger in healthcare organisations but also offer the possibility of devising strategies and behaviours to increase patient safety. Stated as hypotheses, these ideas could be tested empirically, thus adding to the evidence on which the avoidance of adverse events in healthcare settings is based and contributing to the development of theory in this important area.  (+info)

(3/169) Power and influence in clinical effectiveness and evidence-based medicine.

BACKGROUND: The need to base clinical interventions on valid findings of research has been a dominant theme in clinical practice during the last quarter of a century. However, there is much evidence showing that research evidence reaches everyday practice slowly. Solutions to this problem include evidence-based practice and implementation by guidelines and audit. Studies of these methods have included surveys of clinicians' views, implementation projects and evaluations of educational interventions, but they have not examined their implications for the power structure of clinical organizations. This is surprising, given the emphasis placed on medical power in sociological studies of health care. METHODS: A framework derived from management theory defines and summarizes theories of power and influence under the headings: sources of power, overt methods of influence, unseen or covert methods of influence and individual response to influence. This framework is then used to analyse the power and influence possessed and exerted by general practitioners (GPs) and hospital consultants and how these are affected by evidence-based practice and guidelines and audit programmes. OUTCOMES: GPs are seen as having less expert power than consultants and to be more compliant with externally managed guidelines and audit programmes. It is pointed out that compliance with guidelines and audit programmes helps GPs to meet their contractual requirement to be involved in clinical audit activities. Evidence-based practice, which directly challenges the authority of expert opinion is seen as a threat to the power of consultants, but a potential opportunity for GPs and other clinicians whose status is traditionally lower.  (+info)

(4/169) The ultimate curse: the doctor as patient.

Doctors may be thrust into the difficult situation of treating friends and colleagues. A doctor's response to this situation is strongly influenced by his or her emotions and by medical tradition. Such patients may be treated as 'special cases' but the 'special' treatment can backfire and lead to an adverse outcome. Why does this happen and can doctors avoid it happening? These issues are discussed in this commentary on Dr. Crisci's paper, 'The ultimate curse.'  (+info)

(5/169) Accumulated labour market disadvantage and limiting long-term illness: data from the 1971-1991 Office for National Statistics' Longitudinal Study.

BACKGROUND: Both social class and unemployment have been shown in many studies to be related to ill health. Recent work in social epidemiology has demonstrated the importance of examining the accumulation of disadvantage over the life course. This paper therefore uses a large longitudinal data set to examine the accumulation of both disadvantaged class and unemployment over a 20-year period in a representative sample of the male working population of England and Wales. METHODS: Logistic regression. RESULTS: Both membership of semi- or unskilled social class and unemployment in 1971 were related to limiting long-term illness (LLTI) in 1991 independently of each other, and of subsequent social class and unemployment. Any occurrence of disadvantaged social class or of unemployment added significantly to the risk of LLTI. A labour market disadvantage score comprising the number of occasions on which a study member had been either in a disadvantaged social class or unemployed showed a clear and graded relationship to illness, with odds of 4 to 1 in the worst-scoring group. CONCLUSION: The experiences of disadvantaged social class or unemployment at any time during this period contributed independently to an increased risk of chronic limiting illness up to 20 years later in the life course. Whereas improvements in social conditions at any one time will lessen the long-term combined impact of accumulated labour market disadvantage on health, it may not prove easy to obtain short term improvements in health inequality.  (+info)

(6/169) Socioeconomic status in childhood and the lifetime risk of major depression.

BACKGROUND: Major depression occurs more frequently among people of lower socioeconomic status (SES) and among females. Although the focus of considerable investigation, the development of SES and sex differences in depression remains to be fully explained. In this study, we test the hypotheses that low childhood SES predicts an increased risk of adult depression and contributes to a higher risk of depression among females. METHODS: Participants were 1132 adult offspring of mothers enrolled in the Providence, Rhode Island site of the US National Collaborative Perinatal Project between 1959 and 1966. Childhood SES, indexed by parental occupation, was assessed at the time of participants' birth and seventh year. A lifetime history and age at onset of major depressive episode were ascertained via structured interviews according to diagnostic criteria. Survival analyses were used to model the likelihood of first depression onset as a function of childhood SES. RESULTS: Participants from lower SES backgrounds had nearly a twofold increase in risk for major depression compared to those from the highest SES background independent of childhood sociodemographic factors, family history of mental illness, and adult SES. Analyses of sex differences in the effect of childhood SES on adult depression provided modest support for the hypothesis that childhood SES contributes to adult sex differences in depression. CONCLUSIONS: Low SES in childhood is related to a higher risk of major depression in adults. Social inequalities in depression likely originate early in life. Further research is needed to identify the pathways linking childhood conditions to SES differences in the incidence of major depression.  (+info)

(7/169) A population-based case-control study for examining early life influences on geographical variation in adult mortality in England and Wales using stomach cancer and stroke as examples.

BACKGROUND: Geographical variation in mortality is influenced by factors operating in early life and in adulthood. The relative contributions of these factors may be examined by comparing the extent to which adult mortality is related to places of residence in early life and at death. We describe a population-based case-control design, in which all deaths are used as cases and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Longitudinal Study (LS) survivors are used as controls. METHODS: Cases were all deaths from stomach cancer and stroke in England and Wales 1993-1995 amongst people born between January 1930 and September 1939 and for whom place of enumeration in 1939 could be imputed from the first three characters of their National Health Service number. Controls were all LS members born in the same period, enumerated in the 1991 census, resident in England and Wales in mid-1994 and for whom place of enumeration in 1939 could be similarly imputed. Logistic regression was used, adjusting for birth year, sex and social class. A previous mapping exercise by ONS generated comparable geographical units (counties) for 1939 enumeration and area of residence in 1991 or at death. 'Non-migrant' (i.e. 1939 'county' the same as county in 1991 or at death) case:control ratios were calculated to indicate background mortality risk in counties, with adjustment for imprecision using Bayesian smoothing methods. These ratios were then used in modelling risk for inter-county migrants. RESULTS: There were 2590 stomach cancer and 7778 stroke deaths and 28,400 men and 28,180 women as controls. For men, 64%, 61% and 67% of stomach cancer deaths, stroke deaths and controls respectively could be assigned a county of enumeration in 1939. The corresponding percentages for women were 76%, 72% and 75%. For stomach cancer, after adjustment for county of enumeration in 1939, a significant association with the non-migrant case:control ratio for county of residence in 1991 or at death was observed (P= 0.010), indicating an association between current area of residence and stomach cancer mortality. There was no evidence of an independent effect of county of enumeration in 1939. For stroke, there was a highly significant trend in relation to 1939 county (P = 0.0004)and a less significant association with county of residence in 1991 or at death(P = 0.016). CONCLUSIONS: The method described is able to detect the effect of place of residence in early life on geographical variation in adult mortality and will be useful for investigating specific characteristics of areas of enumeration in 1939 in relation to subsequent risk of mortality from a range of diseases.  (+info)

(8/169) Leg and trunk length at 43 years in relation to childhood health, diet and family circumstances; evidence from the 1946 national birth cohort.

BACKGROUND: This is a study of the associations of adult leg and trunk length with early life height and weight, diet, socioeconomic circumstances, and health, and parental height, divorce and death. METHOD: The data used were collected in a longitudinal study of the health, development and ageing of a British national birth cohort (N = 2879 in this analysis) studied since birth in 1946. Multiple regression models were used to investigate the relationships. RESULTS: Adult leg and trunk length were each positively associated with parental height, birthweight, and weight at 4 years. Leg length was associated positively with breastfeeding and energy intake at 4 years. Trunk length was associated negatively with serious illness in childhood and possibly also parental divorce, but not with the dietary data. CONCLUSION: Adult leg length is particularly sensitive to environmental factors and diet in early childhood because that is the period of most rapid leg growth. Trunk growth is faster than leg growth after infancy and before puberty, and may be associated with the effects of serious illness and parental separation because of the child's growing sensitivity to stressful circumstances, as well as the result of the biological effects of illness.  (+info)


How is medical marijuana working out in the states that have legalized it?


I'm doing a speech for school about medical marijuana. I know it's legal in several states. What I don't know is how well these programs are working out. I'm hoping to find the most successful examples of medical marijuana use. My goal is to find the best way to implement such a program in my state, Arkansas, where it is illegal to use marijuana for any reason. I'd like to hear about problems that have come up and what was done to correct them. I am a member of a group of 5 people doing the speech, which is pro legalization of medical marijuana. My portion is 'visualization', where I must speak for about 5 minutes about what it would be like if medical marijuana use were legalized in Arkansas.
----------

The state that is probably the most advanced in this area is California. There are several cities and other localities in California that have more or less officially sanctioned medical marijuana and allow "compassion clubs" to operate. These are dispensaries that sell or give marijuana to people who have the proper permits.

There have been some reported problems with these clubs. One is that they are sometimes not well-received by the local officials who are using any kind of excuse they can think of to shut them down. In many cases, they get the DEA to raid the places. In other places, such as the Oaksterdam area of Oakland, the facilities receive the support of the local community and were a large part of the reason that a former "war zone" area of Oakland has experienced a rebirth. See http://www.oaksterdamnews.com/ for more info on that.

Local officials in some places have lodged complaints against the places such as that they are selling to people who aren't apparently sick. The state law, of course, does not require that people be visibly sick and no one can be diagnosed with anything simply by seeing them on the street. 

There have also been complaints that the compassion clubs occasionally get robbed. This is the same as complaining about convenience stores because they get robbed -- it is not really the fault of the person getting robbed and the solution is not to punish the victims of robbery.

Another complaint is that they bring undesireable elements to the area or that they patrons take their purchased marijuana and sell it on the street. While these kinds of things may occur in some places that are not well-run, they are by no means universal. It depends largely on the management and local regulation of the individual clubs. In the places where they are properly regulated and have the support of the local officials, these problems are not significant. 

A better question is why marijuana use should be punished at all -- regardless of whether it is for medical purposes or "personal use" (non-medical).  Every major study of the subject in the past 100 years has concluded that the marijuana laws were the product of racism, ignorance, and nonsense, and that they should have been repealed long ago because they do more harm than good.

How do i obtain my medical records for when i was in a psychiatric hospital?


Im interested in reviewing my medical records for when i was in the hospital for reasons of my diagnoses, notes they kept of me, symptoms i showed my reactions to things, just everything from when i was in. I know i would have to call the hospital but would i have to go in person to sign for them? What exactly do i ask for?
Someone told me in my other post about the same question, that psychiatric records are way different to try getting than a regular medical record. Is this true and if so, why?
----------

You just need to call them and request a copy of your complete medical file (or records) while you were under the services of their facility.  You might ask if you need to individually contact each physician that worked with you... Sometimes they require the request in writing, or they require that you come personally (with I.D.) to sign for your records, and don't be surprised if they ask you to pay for a copy of your records.  Unfortunately, a lot of facilities and private practices request a fee for the release of your records.  Good luck!


How soon after a medical abortion did you have your next period?


I had a medical abortion 6 weeks ago today. I still haven't had a normal period and there are no signs of it coming. I'm just curious about when it came back for most other women. I don't think I'm pregnant, so I'm not worried about that. I'd just like for my cycles to get back to normal so I can get on with my life. Thanks.
----------

Wow, since no one has actually bothered to answer this question, I'm going to be the first (I really don't understand why people have to use this as a forum for their pro-life nonsense.)
After my abortion, I had my first "period" about 2 weeks afterwards (although the nurses after the operation said it would be about 3-4 weeks before this would happen so I guess it's different for every woman.) I was later told that this wasn't a period but instead it was normal bleeding that occurs after the procedure. It hurts a LOT.
Then about 5-6 weeks after that, my nomal period resumed. 
So you should be fine but if you're still worried, see a doctor. It's very unlikely that you could still be pregnant after a medical abortion as there is so little room for error but you never can be too careful. Or maybe it's the stress of the whole situation you've just been through that's preventing your period coming back.


Is there any doctors or medical institutions who can help me start a medical transcription company ?


I want to start 10 seater medical transcription company in india and i m looking for a break. I can provide the services at a very competitive cost (10 cents per line) and can produce 800 lines per seat per day.
----------

Medical transcription is becoming a big trend in todays medical field.  Especially with smaller MD offices.  They do not have the staff to do this task.  So usually, one would have several MD offices on contract to do their tanscriptions.  Good money too.  Local community colleges offer a course.  In just a short time you could be certified.  Check your local community college or look in the free ADs paper, like "thirty nickel", or "green sheet" there is usually ads in them that could help you.  Good Luck

if i HAD a medical marijuana card can still i become a firefighter?


okay so im looking into getting a medical marijuana card and im a freshman in college right now. i want to later eventually, hopefully became a firefighter and i was just wondering if anyone knows if they would care if i had it. i wouldnt renew it, i was just planning on letting it expire after a year. thanks!
----------

In order to get a medical marijuana card you must have a debilitating condition. Now if you have a debilitating medical condition, how can you possibly  be in good enough shape to handle what is one of the most physically demanding jobs in the world? If you put this on your record you will exempt yourself from many employment opportunities.  I use marijuana as a medicine. I don't need it to survive, but since I'm over 50, broke up from years in the Army and the oilfield, it's undeniable that I can receive "Palliative Relief" (as our state law defines it) with the use of marijuana, and I enjoy is effects. Look man, my heart goes out to you, but if you want a career in public service, do not do this. If you want to use marijuana socially, you must be discreet-I spent many years in the Army indulging from time to time. We're only a few years away from total legalization. Until then you've got to play the game. Be smart and KISS.


What does a medical license entitle a doctor to practice in Michigan?


What I'm looking for is:

     With a medical license, does that give a doctor free reign over any field and any practice? Does a person NEED to have a license in order to perform a surgery, etc...?

Sources would be amazing :) This is for trail evidence in school and websites are being very vague.
----------

In theory, a medical license gives someone legal permission to do just about anything he/she wants, medically. Kinda stupid, but true.

In reality, this is, of course, is not the case. There are restraints, such as the terms of malpractice insurance, threats of a lawsuit, peer pressure, hospital privilege limitations, personal integrity and commons sense.

Occasionally the restraints fail, and patients suffer the consequences. Usually, the only damage to the doctor is higher malpractice costs.


Is medical assitant a way to start in the medical field?


I was wondering if i made the right choice to start off in the medical field which is Medical Assistant.  I heard from some people who had graduated from the program that it is hard to find a job.
----------

What exactly do you want to do or be?  To be a nurse, you would need more schooling.  But being a medical assistant alone, is a wonderful job. You could become the Head Med. Assistant, which would mean more $$.  Talk to the office manager.  She might have some ideas for you.

Be aware of working with a lot of women.  Women ten to get pretty B****y! So stay out of gossiping and back-stabbing, and just do your job!!  :)
