Abstract

At present citizens are more aware of their health and care rights and more literate about their disease. Furthermore the continuous development of technological and bio-medical solutions are alimenting the expectation for longer and better life expectancy, even despite the diagnosis. Patients require to be higher involved in the decision making about their care and are willing to deeply entangle all the possible treatment options, their advantages, and their risks. In other terms, citizens today want to be treated not only as “client” but mainly as partners of the medical action and as co-authors of the success of their healthcare pathway.Due to this socio-psychological change in patients’ attitude, healthcare systems today are claimed to a deep revision of their practices and organizational models in order to become better responsive to patients’ expectation and more sustainable and effective in the management of their services.Patient participation and engagement in healthcare management, indeed, is today acknowledged by policy makers and healthcare experts as a valuable option to orient changes and actions of the healthcare systems. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the positive outcomes of a participatory care approach at the clinical, psychosocial, and economic levels. Patient Engagement, thus, appears today not only an ethical but also a pragmatic imperative for the innovation and the improvement of healthcare system. Moving from these premises, this e-book collects first research experiences, conceptual contribution and review of good practices in the area of Patient Engagement promotion. The e-book also discusses the relevance and the theoretical linkages between the concept of Patient Engagement and that one of Patient Centered Medicine.

Abstract

To summarise our findings, the Hippocratic Epidemics case reports is an example of a text whose intended audiences, despite the ambiguities and historical uncertainties about the texts’ composition and transmission, were very firmly delimited as professional and medical. Such closure defines this phase of ancient medicine as particularly territorial and “technical”, on the one hand – no literary pretence, nor broader intellectual appeal of the kind shown by Galen is on the horizon of these writers, nor any explicit attempt to win over lay audiences, at least in the Epidemics.77 Also, it tells us something about the epistemology and didactics at work in the Hippocratic handling of patients, which we can summarise as follows: non-theoretical, observation-based and data-centred; self-standing, i.e. not relying on a system of knowledge or a “syllabus” (compare Galen’s frequent recommendation on which of his books one should read first, which are for beginners, what should follow, etc.), but needing to “support itself” by insuring the memorisation of the repertoires of observations, procedures, risks and mistakes; lack of a synthesis of the empirical data, such as a form of diagnosis, or of the “epistemological extension” that might turn the observed case into an “experiment”.78 The Hippocratic use of individual evidence – the patient case – remained in this early stage a communication of pure data. Individual memory, in conclusion, the reception of an individual intellect – a future student, a training doctor – characterises the audience of these texts, motivates and even determines, concretely, their very existence.

Abstract

This book recounts some experiences of young Australians with catastrophic brain injuries, their families and the medical system which they encountered. Whilst most of the events described occurred two to three decades ago they raise questions relevant to contemporary medical practice. The patients whose stories are told were deemed to be ‘unsuitable for rehabilitation’ and their early placement in nursing homes was recommended. In 2013, it is time to acknowledge that the adage of ‘one size fits all’ has no place in rehabilitation in response to severe brain injury. Domiciliary rehabilitation, when practicable, may be optimal with the alternative of slow stream rehabilitation designed to facilitate re-entry into the community. Patients’ families were impelled to undertake heroic carers’ commitments as a reaction to nihilistic medical prognoses. It is time for the Australian health care system to acknowledge those commitments, and the budgetary burden which they lift from the system by providing family members with support to retrieve career opportunities, most notably in education and employment, which have been foregone in caring. Medical attendants repeatedly issued negative prognoses which were often confounded by the patient’s long term progress. Hopefully, those undertaking the acute care of young people with severe brain injury will strive to acquire an open mind and recognise that a prognosis based on a snapshot observation of the patient, without any longer term contact provides a flawed basis for a prognosis. The story of these patients and of Dr Ted Freeman has wider implications.

Abstract

In addition to the risk of treatment failure, the liability for elucidation errors forms the second pillar of medical care. An elucidation error occurs when the physician has not given the patient the necessary self-determination information. The self-determination investigation is intended to enable the patient to decide on his own responsibility whether he wants to undergo a specific procedure. The consent of the patient to a medical procedure is only effective if he has received a proper self-determination information beforehand. The doctor must prove that the patient has received a proper self-determination. Self-determination elucidation must be distinguished from the therapeutic elucidation. The therapeutic elucidation aims to avoid self-harming the patient and to lead him a therapy-friendly behavior. Therapeutic elucidation is assigned to the area of medical treatment, with all the consequences of evidence. Thus, inadequate or omitted therapeutic elucidation represents a treatment defect, which must in principle be proven by the patient. Against this background, the relationship between self-determination elucidation and therapeutic elucidation is becoming increasingly important.

Abstract

Patient organizations today play a major role in the scientific, economic and political arenas. They have become the quasi-obliged partners of researchers, industrialists and political authorities. This book investigates this quite recent configuration by offering an in-depth exploration of three thematic issues: To what social and political stakes are patient organizations confronted as regards the transformation, production, circulation, and governance of knowledge? The involvement of patie...

Abstract

Les contributions réunies dans le présent ouvrage ont été présentées lors d'une journée d'étude et de séances de recyclages organisées les 11, 18, 25 mai et 1er juin 1984 par la Faculté de droit des Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis. L'ensemble de ces manifestations a été essentiellement conçu à la suite de deux questions qui, pour l'instant, sous-tendent le rapport droit-psychiatrie : le dialogue entre juristes et psychiatres est-il possible ; quelle réforme apporter au droit des malades et déficients mentaux ? Les auteurs ont tenté, au niveau tant théorique que pratique, de fournir les éléments d'information et de réflexion susceptibles de contribuer à une meilleure compréhension d'un débat assurément difficile et qui demeure d'une grande actualité.

Abstract

De l'œuvre très riche de Bernard Mandeville, la postérité n'a guère retenu que la très controversée Fable des abeilles, qui lui vaut encore aujourd'hui de passer pour l'apôtre du libéralisme le plus cynique. Son Traité des passions hypocondriaques et hystériques, seul ouvrage médical de ce médecin philosophe, fait partie de ses œuvres les moins connues en Grande-Bretagne comme en France. Il mérite cependant d'être lu à plus d'un titre, car Mandeville y fait entendre un discours pragmatique étonnamment moderne sur la relation entre le malade et le patient. La parole et le récit de soi sont au centre du processus de guérison, et annoncent la cure par la parole théorisée par la psychanalyse. La forme du dialogue n'y est pas une simple stratégie didactique, elle est le véhicule de la cure et la cure elle-même. Le Traité de Mandeville s'inscrit également dans une tradition de réflexion sur la mélancolie qui remonte à l'antiquité mais qui affirme son actualité au xviie siècle avec la parution de l'œuvre majeure de Robert Burton (The Anatomy of Melancholy) en 1621, et devient ce « mal anglais » que décrira George Cheyne un siècle plus tard (The English Malady), en 1733, soit trois ans seulement après la seconde édition révisée et augmentée du Traité de Mandeville.

Abstract

Auf den Märkten für medizinische Leistungen und in der Beziehung zwischen Arzt und Patient existieren Informationsasymmetrien in einer Vielzahl, wie sie in kaum einem anderen Bereich einer Ökonomie anzutreffen sind. In der Arbeit wird die beidseitige Informationsasymmetrie zwischen Arzt und Patient untersucht. Zum einen geschieht dies hinsichtlich des Einflusses von Änderungen der Vertragsparameter auf die medizinische Leistung und das Verhalten des Patienten. Zum anderen betrifft dies die Wahl der Versicherungs- und Vergütungsparameter. Ergänzend wird die Arzt-Patient-Beziehung mittels einer empirischen Analyse untersucht. In deren Mittelpunkt stehen die Determinanten der Gesundheitszufriedenheit des Patienten und dabei insbesondere die Inanspruchnahme medizinischer Leistungen.

Abstract

The history of early modern medicine often makes for depressing reading. It implies that people fell ill, took ineffective remedies, and died. This book seeks to rebalance and brighten our overall picture of early modern health by focusing on the neglected subject of recovery from illness in England, c.1580–1720. Drawing on an array of archival and printed materials, Misery to Mirth shows that recovery did exist conceptually at this time, and that it was a widely reported phenomenon. The book takes three main perspectives: the first is physiological or medical, asking what doctors and laypeople meant by recovery, and how they thought it occurred. This includes a discussion of convalescent care, a special branch of medicine designed to restore strength to the patient’s fragile body after illness. Secondly, the book adopts the viewpoint of patients themselves: it investigates how they reacted to the escape from death, the abatement of pain and suffering, and the return to normal life and work. At the heart of getting better was contrast—from ‘paine to ease, sadnesse to mirth, prison to liberty, and death to life’. The third perspective concerns the patient’s loved ones; it shows that family and friends usually shared the feelings of patients, undergoing a dramatic transformation from anguish to elation. This mirroring of experiences, known as ‘fellow-feeling’, reveals the depth of love between many individuals. Through these discussions, the book opens a window onto some of the most profound, as well as the more prosaic, aspects of early modern existence, from attitudes to life and death, to details of what convalescents ate for supper and wore in bed.
