    in Health

    Join Doctor-Attorney Mayer Eisenstein, Vaccine Rights Attorney Alan Phillips, and special guest Dr. Paul King, Ph.D., analytical chemist, as they discuss a nurse's criticism of vitamin D; the reliability (or lack thereof) of the Institutes of Medicine (IOM) and other agencies; Jon Rappoport's criticism of the CDC's claim of 62,034 deaths from influenza in 2001--and how close scrutiny of that figure reveals that there was not a single confirmed case of a flu death that year; how vaccines cause chronic disease; the rapidly growing percentage of children in the U.S. who develop what will become a lifetime chronic disease; how to tell vaccinated children from unvaccinated children without testing; medical research revealing that repeated vaccination with annual flu vaccines poses an ever increasing risk of autoimmune disease; the pointlessness of continuing to vaccinate children for diphtheria when there have been virtually no cases for decades; why a tetanus shot won't help you if you get it shortly after being exposed to tetanus; why doctors stopped giving the tetanus antitoxin; how pertussis was successfully treated in the 1920's and 30's prior to the pertussis vaccine; why the healthcare system is really a disease management system; how CDC officials came to the conclusion that vaccines don't cause autism; and more!

    Dr. Fred interviews Julia Hallisy

    in Health

    Dr. Julia Hallisy is a practicing dentist in San Francisco, California. In 1989, Dr. Hallisy’s late daughter, Katherine, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with Kate’s life-threatening diagnosis marked the beginning of a 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.


    The many lessons she learned during Kate’s life became the foundation for her book, The Empowered Patient: Hundreds of life-saving facts, action steps and strategies you need to know.  Dr. Hallisy works at The Empowered Patient Coalition non-profit organization and has worked with the California Nurses Association, the IOM Initiative on the Future of Nursing and is a member of the leadership council for the California Regional Coalition working to implement the IOM recommendations.

    The Second Victim
    Since the release of the 1999 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report to Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health system, much attention has been focused on medical errors.  This report estimated that up to 98,000 deaths from medical errors occur annually in the United States. Also gaining more attention and emphasis in recent years is the impact that medical errors have on health care providers, deemed the “second victim.”  It is said that health care professionals involved in medical errors oftentimes are greatly affected both emotionally and personally.  Feelings of isolation, shame, guilt, anger, loss of confidence, loss of empathy, and depression are all possible responses.  As I read the several articles about second victims it was clear that the medical industry wanted people to feel sorry for them. No one suggested the same issues they were feeling the first victim was too.  What happens when there isn’t a feeling of shame of the doctor?  What about the first victim? As I look at this there are hurts between both parties, but if the upper management has nothing on their mind but money how can anyone be safe? Is this really hurt or is it cover-up?
    Dr. Fred Southwick once doctor now a victim will be the guest who can answer some of these questions we want to know.  Is this really a two-fold problem?
    Phil Hall CEO of docnosis.com will also be a guest who can tell you the facts about the doctors who may claim to be second victims.
    Tune in Thursday 5:00 PM (CST)

    Treating Distress Facilitates Healing

    in Health

    In 2007 the Institute of Medicine (IOM; 2007) issued a report Cancer Care for theWhole Patient: Meeting Psychosocial Health Needs. This report focused on ways to increase the quality of care provided to cancer patients.  The challenge they issued was to devise methods to screen patients to determine their level of distress and to provide intervention as needed.
    In 2011 the Commission on Cancer issued guidelines for screening cancer patients for a new aspect of their condition: Distress.  Since the issuance of this Screening method there has been considerable discussion among oncology social workers (OSW's) of the processes of implementation of distress screening in cancer centers, screening policies and protocols, screening tool choice, and oncology social worker professional identity.
    Professor Mary Ann Burg of the University of Central Florida analyzed the postings of OSW's to a professional listserv and published her results.  Joyce and Mike speak with Dr. Burg about her findings.
    The article: Mary Ann Burg PhD, MSW, LCSW, Gail Adorno PhD, MSW, LCSW & Jorge Hidalgo BA (2012): An Analysis of Social Work Oncology Network Listserv Postings on the Commission of Cancer's Distress Screening Guidelines, Journal of Psychosocial Oncology, 30:6, 636-651 To link to this article: http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/07347332.2012.721484
