Primary health care in the making by Ulrich Laaser( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the historieal conference held in Alma Ata in 1978, it has been possible to observe a reorientation of the medical profession. More and more, issues of health enter the stage and curative medicine is not just loosing ground but some interest. 'How effective is health education?' and 'Whose task is primary pre vention?' are questions which stimulate great concern and public debate. It seems also to be the first time since the last decades of the 19th century that the social dimension of health receives adequate consideration. Thus the reeent publication of the so-called Black Report on Inequalities in Health (Penguin 1982) led to a heated discussion in Great Britain, certainly of relevance to many other countries. The 6 years since 1978 are much too short a time to proceed far towards 'Health for All', as the slogan of the World Health Organization puts it, but the concepts are spelled out, vaguely but convincing to many of us. It is the right time to discuss first experiences and to move from philosophy to empiri eal work. This work - as it relates to the process evolving since Alma Ata - is characterized by participation, cooperation and prevention: Participation, because 'disease' concerns only the individual patient, his or her family and immediate social environment, while 'health' concerns everyone and should involve everyone. It is a task of the whole of society rather than the domaine of a single profession or party

Chronic heart failure by Herbert Viefhues( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with two essential aspects in chronic heart failure: The quality of life of chronic heart failure pa- tients and nitrate therapy. In the first part the quality of life of patients suffering from chronic heart failure is for the first time addressed on an interdisciplinary level. These patients' physical, mental-emotional, and social conditions are being approached from numerous and diverse points of view, including among others those of (a) the patient himself, (b) the patient's family, (c) the general practitioner, (d) the cardiologists, (e) the heart surgeon, (f) the hospital resident, (g) the epidemiologists, and (h) the health economist. All these aspects aretreated by prominent experts of the different disciplines concerned. One of the conclusions suggested is that quality of life considerations should be given greater scope when planning the development of new drugs for these patients. The second part of the book covers new aspects of nitrate therapy in heart failure and acute myocardial infarction pointing out the importance of remodelling as a mechanism after acute myocardial infarction and treatment with nitra- tes as a possible prevention of chronic heart failure play- ing arole in early remodelling of the heart

As a result of the policy to alleviate work permit restrictions within the European Community, the quantitative and qualitative distribution of doctors in the E.C. is of growing importance in health politics. Particularly under discussion are future training programs for doctors and the role doctors have to play in the health economy under very different types of health systems. This monograph is divided into two parts. The first descriptive section presents, analyzes and discusses the various statistical data and trends as well as the legal positions in the following countries: U.K., Belgium, Federal Republic of Germany, Greece, Denmark, Ireland and Italy. The second part then provides a comprehensive survey of models for solving problems and predicting developments and possible demands for the future
