Intergrative medicine

Shu-jiao Qian, Hong-chang Lai
Evidence-based medicine was defined as the intergration of best available research evidence, individual clinical expertise and patients' expectations in making decisions about the care of patients. This problem-centered concept should be introduced into the education of oral implantology, so as to develop the critical thinking and lifelong learning habit for students. Supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (81470782) and "973" Program (2012CB933600).

Articular osteocartilage injury caused by trauma or bone disease is very common in clinical practices,the proportion of cartilage defects reached 40.31%. As the low self healing abilities of articular cartilage, the technology of tissue engineering becomes a new method to treat articular cartilage injuries with regenerative medicine. Scaffolds can be divided into preformed and hydrogel scaffolds according to properties. The traditional graft of pre-formed scaffold will bring the secondary injury to the cartilage around the defect, and the loose graft intergration with the defect surface is still a problem...

This article summarizes the discussions of the emergency medical services (EMS) breakout session at the June 2010 Academic Emergency Medicine consensus conference "Beyond Regionalization: Integrated Networks of Emergency Care." The group focused on prehospital issues such as the identification of patients by EMS personnel, protocol-driven destination selection, bypassing closer nondesignated centers to transport patients directly to more distant designated specialty centers, and the modes of transport to be used as they relate to the regionalization of emergency care...

In 2006, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) advanced the concept of "coordinated, regionalized, and accountable emergency care systems" to address significant problems with the delivery of emergency medical care in the United States. Achieving this vision requires the thoughtful implementation of well-aligned, system-level structures and processes that enhance access to emergency care and improve patient outcomes at a sustainable cost. Currently, the delivery of emergency medical care is supported by numerous administrative systems, including economic; reimbursement; legal and regulatory structures; licensure, credentialing, and accreditation processes; medicolegal systems; and quality reporting mechanisms...

The participants of the Electronic Collaboration working group of the 2010 Academic Emergency Medicine consensus conference developed recommendations and research questions for improving regional quality of care through the use of electronic collaboration. A writing group devised a working draft prior to the meeting and presented this to the breakout session at the consensus conference for input and approval. The recommendations include: 1) patient health information should be available electronically across the entire health care delivery system from the 9-1-1 call to the emergency department (ED) visit through hospitalization and outpatient care, 2) relevant patient health information should be shared electronically across the entire health care delivery system, 3) Web-based collaborative technologies should be employed to facilitate patient transfer and timely access to specialists, 4) personal health record adoption should be considered as a way to improve patient health, and 5) any comprehensive reform of regionalization in emergency care must include telemedicine...

The demands on emergency services have grown relentlessly, and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) has asserted the need for "regionalized, coordinated, and accountable emergency care systems throughout the country." There are large gaps in the evidence base needed to fix the problem of how emergency care is organized and delivered, and science is urgently needed to define and measure success in the emerging network of emergency care. In 2010, Academic Emergency Medicine convened a consensus conference entitled "Beyond Regionalization: Integrated Networks of Emergency Care...

The provision of emergency care in the United States, regionalized or not, depends on an adequate workforce. Adequate must be defined both qualitatively and quantitatively. There is currently a shortage of emergency care providers, one that will exist for the foreseeable future. This article discusses what is known about the current emergency medicine (EM) and non-EM workforce, future trends, and research opportunities.

The Inter-hospital Communications and Transport workgroup was charged with exploring the current status, barriers, and data necessary to optimize the initial destination and subsequent transfer of patients between and among acute care settings. The subtitle, "Turning Funnels Into Two-way Networks," is descriptive of the approach that the workgroup took by exploring how and when smaller facilities in suburban, rural, and frontier areas can contribute to the daily business of caring for emergency patients across the lower-acuity spectrum-in some instances with consultant support from academic medical centers...

The Integrated Clinical Experience (ICE) at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine is a required, two-year course of study for first- and second-year students. It provides early clinical experiences in primary care settings in metropolitan and rural areas, and related instruction in the social, behavioral, and ethical foundations of medicine. The authors describe the course goals, teaching format, topics, and evaluation of students and faculty. ICE is based on the assumptions that medicine is an applied behavioral science as well as an applied biological science, that critical reflection is important in professional education, and that early exposure to primary care will promote interest in primary care careers...

Health sciences in Central Europe have been established in recent years as the academic complement to public health. Unlike the situation outside Europe the link between academia, administration and practical application has become a distinct characteristic of this European philosophy. In this article the two questions are posed: 1. as to which structural problems characterize research into health and illness today and 2. how far can the establishment of an interdisciplinary sphere of "health sciences" provide adequate solutions? The authors also sketch the outlines of the new health sciences as an intergrating and "trans-paradigmatical" teaching and research field and they consider the relationships of health sciences to practice in general, and their relevance to the health services in particular...

Homeostasis of cardiac output is maintained by a complex intergration of many physiologic responses, both central and peripheral, including pulse,the contractile state of the ventricle, and pre-and after load. In the abnormal ventricle at rest, any or all of the measurable parameters that define left ventricular function may be normal. However, in disease states, exercise can provoke abnormalities in these parameters indicating a reduction in myocardial reserve. Regional asynergy occurs in patients with significant ischemic heart disease during exercise reflecting a local supply-demand mismatch...

The on-line integrated library system is a relatively simple and logical concept. The perception that many library functions can be incorporated within one system, using a single data base, has led a number of practitioners to independently develop such systems. This paper describes the Bibliographic Access and Control System (BACS), developed by the Washington University School of Medicine Library, and identifies some of the underlying principles, components, and capabilities of this system from the vantage point of operational experience over one year...
