I disagree with the line that physician training focuses on "disease diagnosis and treatment, the nursing model emphasizes disease prevention and health promotion." It's sloppily written: "disease prevention and health promotion" are the same exact thing...but I guess that makes it sounds like nurses are doing more. And calling nurses more holistic is inaccurate too. I know plenty of doctors who recommend meditation, exercise, and various supplements instead of medications. Not that I agree with all of that. The old line is "What do you call holistic medicine that is proved to work....you call it medicine." These are just talking points of the nurse agenda. First, physicians have more training than nurse practitioners across the board, and get training in disease prevention/health maintenance. Second, saying that nurses have a more "holistic" approach is plain bogus.
Agree with the point that modern healthcare centre design plays a vital role in protecting the safety of facility inhabitants. Hospitals usually have morgues, autopsy rooms, laboratories etc. that needs safe and secure environment.
Not only the structure, but the usage of modern equipments that you can see at http://www.ilexmedical.com/ and other sites become the critical part for any health care center to become specialized in their work. Patient always wish to have experience doctors, safe and secure environment while taking a treatment.

I"m going to enter each 'self care' item in my calendar as an appt., whether it's meditation, writing or exercise & protect that time.
I got balloons for my sons to play with in an obstacle course they'll build so I can maybe write something while they play instaed of refereeing constantly. And I'm determined to do at least 15 minutes of exercise today even though they think me being on the floor is a cue for tackling.
Acupuncture. It's awesome because not only is it good for my pain management, it is also like a mini retreat. I really relax and it just "clears the deck" so to speak.
so would having a Father.
You forgot to include the very popular app www.CharityMiles.org where every mile run raises money for charity
I have been teaching DO and MD medical students for many years, and I also have noticed no differences between these two groups of very special young women and men with respect to character, intelligence, enthusiasm, desire to serve others, and love of medicine and its challenges. The only difference I can see is that the osteopathic medical students and osteopathic physicians are trained to practice hands on manual techniques that help many patients, that the MD students and MD physicians are not taught to perform. It has been a privilege to have been able to help teach these exceptional future physicians.
This statement made me pause to think
"But without the concentrations on specialities and subspecialties, an osteopathic school is able to focus on basics: "We don't need 15 pathologists in order to run an osteopathic medical school," Gevitz says".
The reality is that it is very difficult for Osteopathic medical schools to get and keep academic pathologists who are needed to help with medical education in the preclinical years. Even with curriculum innovations that result in integrating classroom education, medical students must understand the pathophysiology of diseases before they head out into the clinical years. The reasons why it is so hard has to do with the lack of infrastructure in Osteopathic schools available for meaningful research as well as the difficulty of finding pathologists willing to juggle both clinical workload and academic workload.
Also of note: DOs throughout the United States are for all licensing purposes, the same as MDs. DOs train and become neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, general surgeons, trauma surgeons, intesivists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, emergency medicine physicians, OBGYNs, pediatricians, and family practitioners. The education and opportunity is for all intensive purposes, the same.
This article makes a great point about osteopathic medicine. One edit I'd suggest is that DO stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Doctors of Osteopathy are what you'd find in many European countries and they are different then what we have in America. Therefore they are osteopathic physicians and not osteopaths who attended osteopathic medical school not osteopathic school. Thank you for the wonderful article!
That's great. Donate socks to UGM, but if you're donating clothing (jeans, coats, shoes), I would suggest taking them to the House of Charity. While they don't operate a dedicated clothing room at this time, the chances of a person in need receiving those items are greater. In my experience, anything that has any quality at all that is donated to UGM winds up at their thrift store rather than their clothing room. It can be argued that a homeless person should be grateful for anything that they receive, but if you're trying to keep a fairly clean appearance while looking for work, the stained and threadbare things that are commonly the only things available at UGM aren't really conducive to putting forth a favorable impression to a potential employer.
I have never had to wait for more than a week for a doctor. I do all my medical needs with Rockwood.
I was just there to celebrate my birthday as I am every year. I love Mizuna for making high-end, vegan food and having dishes my meating-eating family can enjoy. I was disappointed that the meat-eaters raved about there dishes while there were no genuine vegan entrees, only vegetarian dishes that could have ingredients omitted and none of these dishes were inspired. I am hopeful that the chef will be impressing those of us with a strictly plant-based diet soon.
Right on! We cannot go forward if we don't accept who we are and what we have chosen and we will not continue on if we set ourselves up with totally unrealistic goals. This one should be printed again right before we all make our new years resolutions! Thanks Coach Carla!

Very nice article. It is so hard to recognize when we need to take a momentary pill, but feels so much better after we do!
