Issues Behind Choosing Alternative Measures to Cancer Care & Cure

Review article of International Research Journal of Health Education Issues Behind Choosing Alternative Measures to Cancer Care & Cure Abdul Kader Mohiuddin Dr. M. Nasirullah Memorial Trust, Tejgaon, Dhaka Regardless of extraordinary development, regular therapy misses the mark in cancer the board. There are two noteworthy obstacles in anticancer drug development: dose-limiting poisonous symptoms that diminish either drug viability or the QoL of patients and convoluted drug development forms that are exorbitant and tedious. Cancer patients are progressively searching out alternative medicine and may be hesitant to uncover its utilization to their oncology treatment doctors. Be that as it may, there is constrained accessible data on examples of use and viability of alternative medicine for patients with cancer. The cost of delivering cancer treatment is estimated to rise globally with a projected total spending of $458 billion by 2030 [1]. However, the financial burden stems from employment loss, cost of care even when patients don't require chemotherapy, out of pocket costs' opportunity costs of informal care time and can continue long after the death of the patient. As adjuvant therapy, numerous conventional medicines demonstrated adequacy against mind, head and neck, skin, bosom, liver, pancreas, kidney, bladder, prostate, colon and blood cancers. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are still generally customary methodologies for treatment of patients harboring propelled cancer. Customary chemotherapy likewise connected with neuropathic pain, fatigue and sleep aggravation, anxiety and depression, mouth sores, nausea and vomiting, early satiety, alopecia, bone and muscle squandering. Worldwide, some 60%-80% people depend on alternative medicines, which is also true for nearly 40% to 70% European, 50% Italian, 40% Korean, 30% British and up to 87% of Australian cancer patients [2]. Use of unapproved/unlabeled/wrong herbal treatment is not uncommon and also drug interactions reported phyto-therapeutics in oncology. Futile medicine use reported in one-fifth of terminally ill ...

DEVELOPMENT OF THE CLINICAL REACTION FROM THE USE OF THE PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING: EXPERIENCE REPORT OF THE UFPE MEDICAL CLINIC LEAGUE

Research article of International Research Journal of Health Education DEVELOPMENT OF THE CLINICAL REACTION FROM THE USE OF THE PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING: EXPERIENCE REPORT OF THE UFPE MEDICAL CLINIC LEAGUE Maria Vanessa Dias da Silva Introduction: Medical knowledge has evolved greatly over time, both in relation to the pathophysiological knowledge of diseases, as the available therapeutic and prophetic arsenal. Despite this, clinical practice is still very much dependent on the medical ability to make a correct diagnosis and, from this, define the best conduct. In this scenario, medical schools have the challenge of facilitating the acquisition of this competence by students, as it is one of the greatest attributes to be developed during the medical course. Objectives: To describe the relevance of the mentoring activities of the medical clinic academic league (LACM-UFPE) for medical education. Methodology: We found 657 articles published from 2013 to 2018, in Portuguese and English. The Health Sciences Descriptors (DeCS) used were Problem-Based Learning and Education, Medical to search the PubMed database. Of this total, 7 articles fit the objectives of this study, serving as the basis for its composition. Results: The process of constructing clinical reasoning has been the focus of numerous investigations, which gave rise to two theoretical approaches: procedural and structural theory. LACM-UFPE uses the structural method, that is, it believes that the clinical reasoning depends on the acquired knowledge, which produces diagnostic hypotheses. Biomedical knowledge would be stored in memory composing this structural basis and thus the diagnostic competence would be determined by the professional’s ability to process these structures in memory. In Problem-Based Learning (PBL), used in LACM-UFPE tutorials, learning starts from problems or situations that aim to generate doubts, imbalances or intellectual disturbances. This method contains strong practical motivation and cognitive stimulation to generate creative solutions. The elaboration of good problems ...

These projects allow participating students the contact and experience with the social reality and development of competencies that favor a better professional performance in real scenarios. Methodology: Experience report.

This project happened in distinct wards of a reference hospital in Recife, Pernambuco. It has made it possible for students to exercise their role as citizens by offering a humanized strategy by telling stories to patients in different age groups. In addition, it enabled the development of professional competence such as: planning and decision making, at the time that will be decided what to do each trip to the wards, the books that will be taken; interpersonal communication, when they need to approach the patient, family and nursing professionals, when they will tell the story; problem solving, when unexpected situations arise, such as refusal to participate, or unexpected cries; autonomy, when directed the actual account and creativity when narrating history and arouse ...
