Background: Breaking bad news to cancer patients is one of the important responsibilities in the oncology setting. The purpose of this study is develop and validate a new theoretically based tool for measurement of attitude and practice of physicians toward breaking bad news.. Methods: The psychometric properties of the scale were established by following the guidelines of Clark and Watson. In the first phase, a literature review was performed to create items; then items were assessed for content validity through individual interview (n = 12) and construct validity was assessed by using factor analysis. Reliability was evaluated by Cronbachs alpha. Research data was gathered from physicians working in breast cancer setting. Results: A total of 12 expert reviews concluded that a large amount of items of attitude and practice questionnaires were important and essential (Content Validity Ratio , 0.73). The exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses for a sample of physicians (n = 200) indicated ...
We want our services to support an open, timely and consistent approach to communicating with service users and their families when things go wrong in healthcare. This is called open disclosure.. An open disclosure programme was piloted at two hospitals, the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin and Cork University Hospital from October 2010 until October 2012.. Utilising the learning from the pilot programme the HSE has developed, in conjunction with the State Claims Agency, a national policy and national guidelines on open disclosure with supporting documents which include a patient information leaflet, a staff support booklet and a staff briefing guide.. The HSE and State Claims Agency launched these documents on 12th November, 2013.. Work is now ongoing across all health and social care services in relation to the implementation of the national open disclosure policy and guidelines. Additional resources have been developed to assist services in the implementation of open ...

Although Anti Retroviral Therapy (ART) is the single most important management of HIV infection, success in decreasing viral load depends on adherence to a strict regimen that requires taking the prescribed drugs daily at the specified times. Failure to daily intake of Anti Retrovirals (ARV) not only prevents treatment failure but may also lead to viral development of resistance to the drugs. The fact that HIV is mainly sexually transmitted means that it is associated with socially unaccepted practices such as premarital and extramarital as well as multiple sexual partners. Fear of such stigma related to these practices may thus prevent HIV status disclosure and deny the patient social support that may be important ...
I met a traveller from an antique land who said: `two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert. near them, on the sand, half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, and wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, tell that its sculptor well those passions read which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, the hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. and on the pedestal these words appear. My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!" nothing beside remains. round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare the lone and level sands stretch far away ...
There is currently no Standard of Care in the South African DoH addressing the issue of parental disclosure of HIV status to HIV-uninfected children, beyond a recommendation to counsel to disclose.. Therefore, for women who are randomized to the control group, we will ensure a Standard of Care for all mothers including a one-hour counselling session, focused specifically on disclosure, delivered at the primary health care facility as part of the HIV Programme.. We will orientate all health professionals in the enrolment clinic, including nurses, counsellors and community health care workers, on parental HIV disclosure, and provide a one-day training workshop (including training manual, role-plays and competency testing. ...

People with learning disabilities are now enjoying a longer life expectancy than ever before as a result of enhanced medical and social interventions and improved quality of life. Some, particularly individuals with Downs syndrome, are susceptible to dementia at a significantly younger age than the average age of onset in the rest of the population. Currently, there is limited guidance on how to talk to people with learning disabilities about dementia and, until such information is shared, individuals cannot be positioned as an authority on their own condition. The new model presented here suggests a way of supporting staff and families to have enabling conversations about dementia that centre on the persons current situation, level of understanding and capacity.Read More:http://journals.rcni.com/doi/abs/10.7748/ldp.18.7.16.e1672.

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., June 4, 2008 - The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of 21 of the worlds leading cancer centers, will expand its current disclosure process and make public all potential conflicts of interest of all individual expert panel members by the end of 2008. This information will begin to appear online at www.nccn.org in July. The NCCN began to expand its disclosure procedures for its NCCN Drugs and Biologics Compendium™ and its NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology™ in January 2008 with development of a new Identification and Disclosure of Relationships with External Entities Form and a new Policy on Disclosure of Relationships with External Entities. These documents were filed in February 2008 as part of NCCNs request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for recognition of the NCCN Drugs and Biologics Compendium™. "Historically, the NCCN has disclosed the names of companies with whom there are relationships," said Dr. William ...
If the television shows I watched this week really reflected reality, many of the characters would be talking about the Breaking Bad finale, with some catching up on Netflix and the AMC marathon. Breaking Bad has done what few shows can do in increasing interest, and ratings, as it approached its finale. Breaking Bad has succeeded against its rivals the same way that Walters blue meth has-being superior to the competition. The show has also become as addictive as blue meth. This is primarily due to basics such as high quality acting and writing, but Breaking Bad has also been assisted by modern technology. The ability of many people to catch up at no additional cost on streaming services such as Netflix has helped increase the audience over past years. High definition big screen televisions are necessary to fully appreciate the camera work.. Things appeared to be as bad as possible for Walt and Jesse at the end of Ozymandias. Matters got even worse in Granite State. Walt lived alone in ...

This article reports on what is at work during individual supervision of medical students in the context of teaching breaking bad news (BBN). Surprisingly, there is a relative lack of research and report on the topic of supervision, even though it is regularly used in medical training. Building on our research and teaching experience on BBN at the undergraduate level, as well as interviews of supervisors, the following key elements have been identified: learning objectives (e.g., raising student awareness of structural elements of the interview, emotion (patients and students) handling), pedagogical approach (being centered on students needs and supportive to promote already existing competences), essentials (e ...
The trial judge went on to say he found neither party to be credible. However, on the basis of a note of D.C.s doctor made seven years earlier referring to a broken condom, the judge concluded that D.C. had lied to her doctor, and inferred that no condom had been worn. On those speculative grounds he convicted D.C. The Court of Appeal went on to concluded that the trial judges reasoning as to whether a condom was used was a reasonable inference, but set aside the convictions on the ground that even without condom use, the requirement of a significant risk of serious bodily harm was not met. It is only at the SCC level, that the underlying premise that D.C. was recognized as speculative and insufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, leaving important questions about whether stigma and preconceptions about HIV positive people, not just biology, is impacting when non-disclosure of HIV positive status results in a criminal conviction.. ...

For such a complex and massively successful show, it would be expected to have a treasure trove of juicy tidbits and secrets. And there are!
The book is organized around a flowchart comprising 16 key questions concerning truth, ranging from Is truth a property? to Is truth epistemically constrained?. It expounds and engages with the ideas of many thinkers, from Aristotle and the Stoics, to Continental analytic philosophers like Bolzano, Brentano, Frege, and Kotarbinski, to such leading figures in contemporary debates as Dummett, Putnam, Wright, and Horwich. In the course of this discussion, many important distinctions (between varieties of correspondence, for example, between different readings of making true, between various kinds of eternalism and temporalism) are emphasized that have so far been neglected in the literature.According to our workaday concept of truth, what we think is true if and only if things are as we think they are. A modest account of truth‐apt thinkables and of truth, in terms of higher‐order quantification over propositions, can spell out this platitude without invoking notions like correspondence, fact,

More loose ends are tied in episode two of season five (say it with me!) part one, the delightfully Mike-heavy "Madrigal." We find out right fucking quick that no, that flash forward from last week will not be a running thing a la season twos more vague series of flash forward cold opens. Instead of a possibly fifty-two-turning Walt doing shit with a fucking machine gun we get some German dude named Schuler tasting new sauces with all the joy of that shithead food critic from Ratatouille. (The "Franch" sounded good to me but Im a dumb American.) Turns out hes the guy that connects the major corporation Madrigal to Gus Frings chicken chain. Guy gets word the cops have arrived and kills himself in a science-y way that Walt probably would have admired.. Hank hasnt decided to call it quits at Gus Fring, flying in a bunch of Madrigal execs from Germany in for questioning. Whether those Germans will become a major aspect to the story from here on out seems doubtful because, you know, how many of ...

About 3 weeks I get bad news from my mom who was in the hospital because she broke her hip. She made it thru surgery and was doing well until they did more tests and found cancer in her liver and it was possibly in her lungs and bones. She was given a week to 3 months without doing chemo. She agreed to chemo but hadnt started it yet when she went to a rehab facility. She was doing good there except for some breathing issues and apparently she caught hospital acquired pneumonia. That is the worst kind to get, she ended up back in the hospital Tuesday and yesterday she passed away suddenly. Its killing me if she could have held on just one week her last ggrandson would have been here.
