RA395.M159.1 - Are We Playing In The Right Ballgame?
M.J. McKeown, MD, FACOG, FACS
None of this is healthcare it is sickness care. A huge international industry has arisen as wonderful new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are developed. Immense international companies depend on the economics of people being sick.

RA407.M159.2 - Statistics: A Tool, A Puzzle, A Diversion - Part 1
M.J. McKeown, MD, FACOG, FACS
At times there seems to be more than one true and correct answer. Here is where the use of this Statistical Analysis becomes needed, real and trusted. This means that the analysis system and its rules need to produce an answer that can be defined as near to absolute truth as possible and one that we can trust to guide us in our life decisions

RA407.S537.1 - Beyond Statistics: Getting to the Long Tail
David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PHD
I discovered in my own brain scanning experiment that I had brain cancer. The question is not what the median outcome is, but what we can do to help ourselves. Combine the best of conventional treatments with a new way of living through which we begin to nourish every aspect of health within our bodies.

RA645.3.R68.1 - Before Hospital Discharge -- Evaluating Your Homecare Needs
Ernest H. Rosenbaum, MD, Isadora R. Rosenbaum, MA, Diane Craig, RN, ONC, BSHS, and Carol S. Viele, RN, MS
Discharge from the hospital represents a crucial move and a progressive step in your rehabilitation. Many patients become more alert and better oriented after returning home. You will need to participate in planning your home care by providing information regarding the physical setup at your home - stairs, bathroom facilities - the availability of people to help you and whether special equipment can be accomodated.

RA645.3.R68.2 - Going Home from the Hospital
Ernest H. Rosenbaum, MD, Irene Harrison, LCSW, Joan Keane, BSN, Barbara Penney, PHN, MS, and Harold Brownstein, MD
Going home from the hospital is an emotional experience. Illness touches off old thoughts, feelings and fears and creates disruptions. Planning ahead can improve the quality of life at home, reduce fear, and enhance the confidence of families, friends, and patients. Those who are most involved in their hospital plan of care will make the easiest transition to home care.
