Drug and alcohol abuse the perils

Drug and alcohol abuse is perhaps the most common and the gravest problems facing the younger generation. The world over, youths are getting addicted to drugs and alcohol and becoming victims for various illnesses. Tobacco consumption is rated to be the primary cause of preventive deaths in the world. Tobacco-related illnesses can be fatal not just for the person consuming tobacco but for all others around him or her too. This is the reason why tobacco abuse is considered to be most dangerous. But that is not the only problem. Alcoholism can be as serious too and then there is drug abuse with prescription drug abuse being the most common.

Drug and alcohol abuse – the problems associated

Substance abuse can cause more problems than those visible to the eyes. This is one issue that the society is facing since times immemorial however, the impact of substance abuse has only aggravated in the current times. While drug and alcohol abuse is predominantly a health issue, in recent times, it has become more of a social problem as it does not just affect that individual who is addicted but also several others associated to him personally and professionally. With governments of most countries enacting laws and legislations that are geared at addressing the problem, more and more people are coming out with their grievances. Most health experts vouch for the fact that alcohol and substance abuse affects the society to a large extent.

Effects on the family:

By far, it is the family of the addict who is worst affected. People who abuse drugs or alcohol become negligent of their responsibilities towards their family members. If they are the forerunners in the family, it further aggravates the problem as lives of all other dependent members of the family are negatively impacted. Moreover, children who grow in families that have elders who abuse drugs and alcohol are more likely to become dependent on these substances as they grow. Read More...

Risk Management in Healthcare Sector

Improvements in the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry has shown a great deal of improvement in recent years. The introduction of new technology has meant that effective means of treatment are being discovered each day. Diseases and medical conditions that were once considered fatal can now be easily managed using new drugs and medicines that have recently been developed. However, all this progress still hasn’t helped when it comes to patient safety. Even with all the high tech equipment and advanced machines present in hospitals, medical errors are still the norm. A number of patients have lost their lives because of errors that could have been prevented if proper steps had been taken to avoid their risk.

How Can Healthcare Risk Management Help?

Managing risks is a great way of ensuring that an error can be prevented even before it can occur. After all, errors occur if there is a potential risk involved. For instance, if there is a risk that a machine going off can kill a patient then managing it beforehand would ensure that no patient dies because of accidental closure of that machine. This is the reason why healthcare risk management is being seen as the way forward to bring an end to deaths caused due to machine glitches or medical miscalculations. The following are some ways through which healthcare risk management is helping in this regard.

Patient Incident Reporting

The first and foremost requirement for managing risk in the healthcare environment is detection of the risk. Finding out possible instances of risk would require hospitals to invest in some form of software that is capable of recording patient incident reports. Datix is the market leader in the healthcare risk management industry whose aim is to ensure patient safety in the healthcare sector. The company has come up with a patient incident reporting system for the healthcare industry. This system of theirs can record patient complaints and incident reports. It is already helping in providing risk managers the chance to view the incident reports and then find out the potential risks that caused the incident to happen.  Read More...

How to Treat Common Foot Conditions With Orthotics

The overall posture of the skeletal body is primarily determined by the biomechanics of the foot and ankle. If there is a slight problem in the biomechanics of the foot, it leads to numerous musculoskeletal problems in the ankle, knees, hips and the back, thereby affecting general body functionality.

Most of the posture and musculoskeletal issues can be effectively handled by enhancing foot motions. This is where orthoses come in to provide control, support, shock absorption, stability and pressure relief on sore and uncomfortable areas. Therapy with foot orthotics is on the increase as it has proven its effectiveness in correcting foot problems, leading to healthier lifestyles. Read More...

Who makes the technical decisions for you?

Tech solutions for health

The advancements of medicine have always been pushed forwards, and backed up, by the development of science and technology. Human beings felt curious about their own bodies, how they worked, what diseases were, and of course how to fight them and shield themselves from them. This instinct of investigation and the search for physical and mental relief, in order to protect their lives and their capacities, has been behind all further developments in the medical science. Once a matter of religion or superstition, even an organic part of a spiritual corpus of belief, now health and healing advance onto the shoulders of empiric research and technological breakthroughs.

Over the course of the centuries and even today, we face health challenges, from epidemical outbreaks to administrative flaws in our health systems. Both companies and public services try to battle these problems every day in order to provide health services to the population. It does take knowledge and resources to do so, and technology allows us to face greater and greater threats with an increasing rate of success and less suffering for the patients. Read More...
