    Patients Included Charter

    in Business

    A Roadmap for Patient-Centric Conferences

    Pharmaguy interviews Casey Quinlan, Co-Founder at Patients for Clinical Research, journalist, author, ePatient and patient advocate, about Patients Included: A Charter for Conferences and how the pharmaceutical industry can help ensure more patients are able to attend and participate in patient-relevant healthcare conferences.

    "Patient centricity" is all the rage these days among pharmaceutical industry conference attendees and speakers. It is even becoming more common for actual patients to be part of the faculty/speakers and/or attendees of these conferences. 

    Questions/Topics of Discussion

    The discussion focused on the following Charter clauses copied from the patientsincluded.org site:

    Patients or caregivers with experience relevant to the conference's central theme actively participate in the design and planning of the event, including the selection of themes, topics and speakers.
    Patients or caregivers with experience of the issues addressed by the event participate in its delivery, and appear in its physical audience.
    Travel and accommodation expenses for patients or carers participating in the advertised programme are paid in full, in advance.
    Scholarships are provided by the conference organisers to allow patients or carers affected by the relevant issues to attend as delegates.
    The disability requirements of participants are accommodated. All applicable sessions, breakouts, ancillary meetings, and other programme elements are open to patient delegates.
    Access for virtual participants is facilitated, with free streaming video provided online wherever possible.

  • Difficult Patients and Difficult Decisions: Give Me A Break

    in Health


    Are you a therapist, nurse or other Health Care Professional feeling overworked and underappreciated?    
     Do you sometimes have difficulty setting boundaries with patients or their families?  
    Are you frustrated by patients who cannot or will not follow through with recommendations?      

    If  you answered "yes" to the above questions, you will want to join me and my guest, Clinical Pscyhologist,     Dr. Angelo Domingo.

    Over the course of his clinical career, Dr. Domingo has gained an awareness for the ways in which mental and physical illness, and environmental stressors combine to impact an entire family. Individualized treatment plans may include: stress management, psycho-education, relaxation, meditation, and traditional talk therapy based on each patient or family's individual needs.

    With an active psychology practice at Parkinson Place, in Sarasota, Florida, Dr. Domingo has also developed a skill for helping other health care professionals set healthy boundaries with patients and families. When memory problems or dementia impact a patient's participation in treatment, he can help therapists develop behavior modification strategies which may improve patient adherence.  

    Face it, we wouldn’t be working in health care if we didn’t care about people, but, sometimes,we need a little self-care. 

    So, grab your lunch, and join the discussion.

    Patients and Physicians Network about Kidney Cancer

    in Health

    The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida.  It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.

    This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix.  In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing.  This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.

    Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception.  He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org  In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong.  The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage.  For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems.  Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.

    in Health

    With practices in two separate locations and a world wide patient base, facial plastic surgeon James Newman, M.D. of Palo Alto, CA understands the need to quickly communicate with his patients from anywhere in the world at the push of a button.
