OBJECTIVE: Social media, web and mobile technologies are increasingly used in healthcare and directly support patientcentered care. Patients benefit from disease self-management tools, contact to others, and closer monitoring. Researchers study drug efficiency, or recruit patients for clinical studies via these technologies. However, low communication barriers in socialmedia, limited privacy and security issues lead to problems from an ethical perspective. This paper summarizes the ethical issues to be considered when social media is exploited in healthcare contexts...

Fibromyalgia or fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a complex chronic pain disorder of unknown causation frequently associated with debilitating fatigue, unrefreshing sleep, cognitive and affective symptoms. A fibromyalgia-type suffering was possibly described in the Book of Job. Analogous symptomatic conditions have been medically recognized since the early 1900s, when initially labeled as "fibrositis". Since the early 1980s, FMS has evolved and differentiated after its characterization in a controlled study. Since then, research has focused on multiple aspects of this disorder, including characterization and management of symptoms, psychophysiology, neuroendocrine-immune pathophysiology, including central sensitization mechanisms...

This issue of the NCMJ describes the impact that genomics has had on the practice of medicine in the decade since the full sequencing of the human genome was completed in 2003. Specifically, it reports on how genomics is affecting health care delivery, describes the concept of personalized health care, and discusses the role that genomics plays in such care. The commentaries and sidebars that follow highlight the opportunities and challenges of bringing genomics into clinical practice. Reading these articles will hopefully give clinicians and others a better understanding of the benefits and limitations of genomic technologies...

Group therapists are in a unique position to be effective as change consultants to medical practices and hospital departments that wish to transition to patientcentered care (PCC) and patient- and family-centered care (PFCC). Medical groups are under increasing pressure to adopt PCC because it has been shown to be an important component of substantial improvements in health care delivery, including cost containment. The establishment of patient-centered care requires sensitive, repeated group-based interventions to be successful; group therapists have a deep understanding of such interventions...

Relatives of critically ill patients were able to identify their needs during the intensive care phase of hospitalization. The universal need identified as very important was the need for hope. Other important needs were concerned with receiving adequate and honest information and feeling that the hospital staff members were concerned about the patient. Although several of the needs appeared to be of great concern to relatives, all the needs were considered very important by at least one relative. The majority of needs were perceived as being met consistently...
