When I set out to write about the diagnostic process, I envisioned a text
that could both complement classroom teaching and provide a guide for independent
study. That was before I undertook a completely unscientific
survey of practicing health care professionals, to learn how they had
learned about mental health diagnosis. What I found surprised me.
For most of the practitioners I surveyed, training in the refined art of
diagnosis was—well, no training at all.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Evidence based physical diagnosis" has contents: What is evidence based physical diagnosis, diagnostic accuracy of physical findings, using the tables in this book, reliability of physical findings, mental status examination, stance and gait, jaundice,...and other contents.
Coma: a state of unconsciousness from which the patient cannot be aroused, even by powerful stimuli. Traumatic brain injuries are the most frequent cause; other causes include severe uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, liver disease, kidney disease, and neurologic conditions
Dementia: a general loss of mental abilities, including impairment of memory and often impairments in speech, coordination, ability to understand sensory stimuli, and other mental faculties.
The general physical examination in a delirious patient should include a careful screening for signs of infection such as fever, tachypnea, pulmonary consolidation, heart murmur, or stiff neck. The patient's fluid status should be assessed; both dehydration and fluid overload with resultant hypoxia have been associated with delirium, and each is usually easily rectified. The appearance of the skin can be helpful, showing jaundice in hepatic encephalopathy, cyanosis in hypoxia, or needle tracks in patients using intravenous drugs.

Respondents were also asked about the importance of religion for them and about their religious practices.
Results are shown in Table 10 for Buddhists and Moslems. Given the small number of Moslems in the
sample, caution is appropriate when interpreting the results. Clearly religion is very important for a
substantial majority of Cambodian elders. Three fourths of Buddhists and over 90% of Moslems in our
sample indicated that religion was very important for them. This varied very little across gender and
Despite the theoretical advantages of identifying individuals with
cognitive impairment, there is no evidence to indicate whether this
leads to a net benefit or risk to the individual. Although pharmaceutica
agents are able to produce measurable changes in cognitive
performance in people with Alzheimer’s disease, none has been shown
to result consistently in clinically significant improvement. The high
cost of investigation to exclude reversible causes of dementia, and the
negative effects of labelling are examples of potential harm.
The pattern of health care provision is changing in Britain, due to the increasing focus on
primary care. This is exemplified by the policies of the Labour government (elected in
1997) that stipulated that the majority of health care should eventually be provided in a
primary care setting. As a reflection of this trend, undergraduate medical education is
now based more in the community rather than in the hospital. These changes in medical
education will influence the priorities and expertise of future doctors and elevate the
status of primary care medicine....
Prologue Alright, I'm sure someone will take exception to my negative view of A.A. and it's clones, such as NA/CA/EA/SA/etc. But let me say I see nothing at all wrong with the idea of it. However the application is one of the most horrid ones I've ever seen. Any contact I've had with A.A.'s have been almost exclusively negative. As a group A.A.'s are closed minded and willfully ignorant because the organization has a classic cult mentality. My first serious contact with the organization was when I went seeking information on addiction. Now, years later, I'm still waiting for them...

Medical rehabilitation is underfunded and short-staffed, and access to
services is subject to substantial regional disparities. Long-term care is
provided by both the health and the social sectors. Local governments are
responsible for providing social care, which takes the form of cash and in-kind
benefits provided mostly to impoverished individuals and those with disabilities.
Palliative care is still in its infancy. The importance of informal carers, who in
some cases are eligible for financial assistance, has been recognized.
The Office of Clinician Support provides a safe place for physicians to discuss and resolve a wide range of work place and personal issues. The OCS provides a blend of services ranging from creating awareness of work-engendered stresses, to discussions about work-related and personal concerns, to mental health assessments,
to crisis interventions. All clinicians are seen at no charge with referrals to outside professionals as needed. OCS staff will make arrangements to meet at a convenient time, usually within 24-48 hours.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Fundamentals of case management practice - Skills for the human services" has contents: Bringing up difficult issues, addressing and disarming anger, the effective combination of skills, documenting initial inquiries, the first interview, social histories and assessment forms, the mental status examination,...and other contents.
Women who are abused have poorer mental and
physical health, more injuries, and a greater need for
medical resources than non-abused women.
Multi-Country Study on Women’s Health and Domestic
Violence found that abused women in Brazil, Japan, and
Peru are almost twice as likely as non-abused women to
report their current health status as poor or very poor.
The impact of gender-based abuse on physical health
can be immediate and long-term. Women who are abused
rarely seek medical care for acute trauma, however.
The population of disabled elderly in the United States is
growing rapidly. The number of Americans who will suffer
functional disability due to arthritis, stroke, diabetes,
coronary artery disease, cancer, or cognitive impairment is
expected to increase at least 300 percent by 2049.1
Although people tend to develop chronic conditions as they
age, growing old does not have to mean becoming disabled.
