An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
The fluid excreted by the SWEAT GLANDS. It consists of water containing sodium chloride, phosphate, urea, ammonia, and other waste products.
A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)

An educational process that provides information and advice to individuals or families about a genetic condition that may affect them. The purpose is to help individuals make informed decisions about marriage, reproduction, and other health management issues based on information about the genetic disease, the available diagnostic tests, and management programs. Psychosocial support is usually offered.
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
Thin, filamentous protein structures, including proteinaceous capsular antigens (fimbrial antigens), that mediate adhesion of E. coli to surfaces and play a role in pathogenesis. They have a high affinity for various epithelial cells.
Thin, hairlike appendages, 1 to 20 microns in length and often occurring in large numbers, present on the cells of gram-negative bacteria, particularly Enterobacteriaceae and Neisseria. Unlike flagella, they do not possess motility, but being protein (pilin) in nature, they possess antigenic and hemagglutinating properties. They are of medical importance because some fimbriae mediate the attachment of bacteria to cells via adhesins (ADHESINS, BACTERIAL). Bacterial fimbriae refer to common pili, to be distinguished from the preferred use of "pili", which is confined to sex pili (PILI, SEX).

Selecting subjects for participation in clinical research: one sphere of justice. (1/531)

Recent guidelines from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) mandate the inclusion of adequate numbers of women in clinical trials. Ought such standards to apply internationally? Walzer's theory of justice is brought to bear on the problem, the first use of the theory in research ethics, and it argues for broad application of the principle of adequate representation. A number of practical conclusions for research ethics committees (RECs) are outlined. Eligibility criteria in clinical trials ought to be justified by trial designers. Research ethics committees ought to question criteria that seem to exclude unnecessarily women from research participation. The issue of adequate representation should be construed broadly, so as to include consideration of the representation of the elderly, persons with HIV, mental illness and substance abuse disorders in clinical research.  (+info)

To tell the truth: disclosing the incentives and limits of managed care. (3/531)

As managed care becomes more prevalent in the United States, concerns have arisen over the business practices of managed care companies. A particular concern is whether patients should be made aware of the financial incentives and treatment limits of their healthcare plan. At present, managed care organizations are not legally required to make such disclosures. However, such disclosures would be advisable for reasons of ethical fidelity, contractual clarity, and practical prudence. Physicians themselves may also have a fiduciary responsibility to discuss incentives and limits with their patients. Once the decision to disclose has been made, the managed care organization must draft a document that explains, clearly and honestly, limits of care in the plan and physician incentives that might restrict the care a patient receives.  (+info)

Health outcomes and managed care: discussing the hidden issues. (4/531)

Too often the debate over health outcomes and managed care has glossed over a series of complex social, political, and ethical issues. Exciting advances in outcomes research have raised hopes for logical medical reform. However, science alone will not optimize our patients' health, since value judgements are necessary and integral parts of attempts to improve health outcomes within managed care organizations. Therefore, to form healthcare policy that is both fair and efficient, we must examine the fundamental values and ethical concerns that are imbedded in our efforts to shape care. We must openly discuss the hidden issues including: (1) trade-offs between standardization of care and provider-patient autonomy; (2) effects of financial incentives on physicians' professionalism; (3) opportunity costs inherent in the design of insurance plans; (4) responsibilities of managed care plans for the health of the public; (5) judicious and valid uses of data systems; and (6) the politics of uncertainty.  (+info)

Physician characteristics and the physician-patient relationship. Impact of sex, year of graduation, and specialty. (5/531)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of physician sex, medical specialty, and year of graduation from medical school with attitudes and behaviours that define physician-patient relationships. Hypotheses tested are that women physicians, family physicians, and recent graduates spend more time discussing lifestyle and general health issues during patients' first visits; are more likely to report behaviours that are empathetic and that encourage communication with patients; are less likely to view their role as directive and problem-oriented; and are more supportive of patients' rights to information and participation in decision making. DESIGN: A survey was mailed to a stratified random sample of physicians between February and June 1996. SETTING: Physician practices in Ontario. PARTICIPANTS: Of 714 practising Ontario physicians, 405 (57%) responded. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportion of time and actual time spent discussing a patient's lifestyle during a first visit, communication style, attitudes regarding a directive approach to care, and attitudes regarding patients' rights. RESULTS: Women physicians and family physicians spent significantly more time discussing lifestyle during a first visit. Women, family physicians, and recent graduates were significantly more likely to report an empathetic communication style. Women and recent graduates were significantly less likely to have a directive, problem-oriented approach to care. Family physicians were significantly less supportive of patients' rights than medical and surgical specialists were. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians in this study reported empathetic communication styles and attitudes that support information sharing and patients' rights.  (+info)

Genetic privacy: orthodoxy or oxymoron? (6/531)

In this paper we question whether the concept of "genetic privacy" is a contradiction in terms. And, if so, whether the implications of such a conclusion, inevitably impact on how society comes to perceive privacy and responsibility generally. Current law and ethical discourse place a high value on self-determination and the rights of individuals. In the medical sphere, the recognition of patient "rights" has resulted in health professionals being given clear duties of candour and frankness. Dilemmas arise, however, when patients decline to know relevant information or, knowing it, refuse to share it with others who may also need to know. This paper considers the notions of interconnectedness and responsibility to others which are brought to the fore in the genetic sphere and which challenge the primacy afforded to personal autonomy. It also explores the extent to which an individual's perceived moral obligations can or should be enforced.  (+info)

Genetic testing: a conceptual exploration. (7/531)

This paper attempts to explore a number of conceptual issues surrounding genetic testing. It looks at the meaning of the terms, genetic information and genetic testing in relation to the definition set out by the Advisory Committee on Genetic Testing in the UK, and by the Task Force on Genetic Testing in the USA. It argues that the special arrangements that may be required for the regulation of genetic tests should not be determined by reference to the nature or technology of the test, but by considering those morally relevant features that justify regulation. Failure to do so will lead to the regulation of genetic tests that need not be regulated, and would fail to cover other tests which should be regulated. The paper also argues that there is little in the nature of the properties of gene tests, using DNA or chromosomes, that in itself justifies a special approach.  (+info)

Cross-border alliances in health care: international co-operation between health insurers and providers in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. (8/531)

On behalf of the European Commission, a Cross-Border Health Care Project was undertaken to explore how citizens living in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine can obtain improved access to health services in the Member States concerned: Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands. Main attention of the project is focused on practical issues of cross-border health care. The first results have shown that the new cross-border health alliances resulted in improved possibilities for patients to access more health care facilities than before. The creation of health care alliances could also be an example for future collaboration between the countries in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. This paper also analyses the rights of patients on cross-border care in the Euregion.  (+info)

Patient advocacy is an area of specialization in health care concerned with advocacy for patients, survivors and caregivers.^. The patient advocate may be an individual or an organization. The terms patient advocate and patient advocacy can refer both to individual advocates providing services, and to organizations whose functions extend to individual patients. Some patient advocates work for the institutions that are directly responsible for the patients care. Others work independently.. The Patient Advocate Foundation describes the role of the patient advocate in this way: Patient Services provide patients with arbitration, mediation and negotiation to settle issues with access to care, medical debt, and job retention related to their illness.. ...
As treatment options in the United States become more complex and plentiful, patient advocacy groups play a vital role in educating patients about new therapies and medical breakthroughs.

The patient advocacy agenda covers every aspect of cancer treatment and care. This inevitably means that this review covers almost everything that patient advocates are involved with, whether locally, nationally or across national borders. Over more than 15 years of working as an advocate I have been involved in representation and/or discussion about almost all the topics which follow. I have broken this review into five main sections and have identified within each an advocacy priority. This is then supported by a number of further areas of advocacy activity. The review starts with a look at what advocacy is and closes with a short discussion on how sarcoma advocacy is structured internationally. The five sections are: (i) Clinical challenges, (ii) Challenges for healthcare systems, (iii) The cross-border challenges, (iv) Keeping up to date, (v) Research. The five priority challenges, one within each area above, are listed respectively in order with the above: (i) Earlier accurate diagnosis and primary

PATIENT ADVOCATES. The concept of Patient Advocates has different expectations under varying circumstances for different people. We are using it here to describe our view of the relationship and potential responsibility that a Neurosurgeon may have regarding Patient Advocacy for his/her patients.. Hippocrates left a legacy of scientific curiosity and personal integrity, part of which is reflected in the Hippocratic Oath. In his magnum opus Epidemics, Book I, Section XI, he wrote: As to diseases, make a habit of two things to help, or at least to do no harm.. Subsequently, the Roman physician Galen, translated this phrase into Latin as Primum non nocere, the translation of which is First, Do No Harm. This statement defines a way of thinking which places the welfare of the patient above other concerns. This principle applies in the modern environment as well as it did centuries ago when the concept was initiated into practice.. Todays practice of medicine is far more complicated than ...

Washington (May 1, 2017) - On behalf of more than one hundred million Americans battling chronic and other major health conditions, a coalition of 10 patient organizations remains united in its opposition to the American Health Care Act (AHCA). In March, our patient advocacy organizations collectively urged Congress to ensure that any changes made to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) provide affordable, accessible and adequate coverage and do not result in a loss of coverage for any Americans. The AHCA would do the opposite, causing at least 24 million Americans to lose health insurance, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. As introduced, the bill would profoundly reduce coverage for millions of Americans-including many low-income and disabled individuals who rely on Medicaid-and increase out-of-pocket costs for the sickest and oldest among us. We are alarmed by recent harmful changes to the AHCA, including provisions that will weaken key consumer ...

According to Wikipedia, a patient advocacy organization is, an area of specialization in health care concerned with advocacy for patients, survivors, and carers. The patient advocate may be an individual or an organization, often, though not always, concerned with one specific group of disorders.. Im an active member of two patient advocacy organizations. One of them had their annual patient conference last week in San Francisco. The conference location changes each year to provide opportunities for families to attend that may not have the resources to fly across the country. It was either the 8th or 9th annual conference and Ive attended nearly all of them. Each year the conference draws more researchers and pharmaceutical companys involvement but, thankfully, the heart of the conference remains with the patients..

For years, Purdue Pharma has maintained that it cant be blamed for the overdose crisis that unfolded after its introduction of OxyContin-but a trove of new evidence suggests that the company was instrumental in laying the groundwork for the opioid epidemic.. As early as 2000, Purdue collaborated with pain patient advocacy groups and professional pain management organizations to create what former president Richard Sackler called a pain movement. The company also allegedly worked with competitor and opioid maker Johnson & Johnson, which was recently found liable for contributing to the opioid crisis in Oklahoma, in an effort to create a pain management franchise. In addition, company executives appear to have met with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to discuss possible collaborations.. These revelations come from new exhibits in the federal litigation bundling roughly 2,000 cases against opioid makers and distributors that is set to go to trial in October. The plaintiffs allege that the ...

Our website creates an unbiased and honest one-stop shop for information on spine health. If youve been told you need to have neck or back surgery, we are the place you can turn to for truthful answers, says Dr Rita Roy, CEO of the Spine Health Foundation.. Increasingly, doctors have limited time to spend with patients. It is really helpful to have a trusted, independent foundation that I can direct patients to when they have more questions than I have time to answer, notes Dr Tom Schuler, spine surgeon and President of Spine Health Foundation Board.. In the past, patients were not the deciders of their spine health treatment, but with an increasingly internet-savvy population of digital natives and a demand for consumer marketing, they want to drive their treatment in a shared decision-making model. There has not been an unbiased non-profit dedicated to patient advocacy until now, Roy adds.. [Source(s): National Spine Health Foundation, PR Newswire]. ...

Proving retaliation can be difficult and the burden of proof is on the nurse alleging the retaliation or discrimination. This difficulty is addressed by item (e)(1) which outlines a rebuttable presumption that if the retaliation took place within 60 days of the patient advocacy activities it is presumed to be retaliation. The rebuttable presumption prevents the defendant from simply denying the allegation and requires the defendant to present opposing evidence that it was not retaliation. Once the defendant presents their evidence, it can be evaluated and challenged by the nurse. If you are thinking this all sounds very legal, youre right. These protections are in statute but they arent automatic. Nurses must hire a lawyer and file a claim. The statute of limitations on retaliation claims is not specified in the Nurse Practice Act. In a San Antonio case, the federal court found that the Texas Nursing Practice Act is most analogous to the cause of action provided by Texas Health & Safety Code ...
