After our systematic review about the definition of Health 2.0, one of our next steps will be sorting out what “the crowd” thinks that has to be part of a definition of Health 2.0. For this purpose we’ve set up a little questionnaire that you could fill in below.
To make the crowd as big a s possible, we have also made it available to put on your own blog or website. We would encourage you to do this and inspire others to do the same. To do just that copy & past the html code below in the first comment on this blogpost, into your website or blog. Because Posterous translates HTML code nicely and automatic in a great page, i had to put it in a commentfield 😉
The results will be published in a peer-reviewed article.
Teaservideo Medicine 2.0 Maastricht.
For the Medicine 2.0 conference November 29 & 30, 2010 we’ve made a teaser video :
Teaser Medicine 2.0 ’10 Maastricht from UMC St Radboud on Vimeo.
And now something completely different, sometimes you’ve got to show you’re fatherly pride ;-).
Our daughter (@melindaengelen) made it with her team through the Dutch Open Championship up until the third place. Great huh !
So now they’ve qualified for the World Championship 2010 in Blackpool (UK), organized by United Dance Organisation August 28th.
They want to raise as many money themselves, so they don’t have to ask their parents a lot of money, NICE ;-)))
So Melinda (the girl in the right pointing to their award) asked me if i could help them with making a little video-clip and lend some other hands.
Melting for her charms (as always) we’ve made a Dutch Website and a video clip for her team Un-Restricted aswell as for the team of her danceschool-teacher and owner of School of Dance The Big Experience named N-sanity.
This team also qualified for a chance to show up in the movie Step-Up 3D, so may be you give them a little help and vote for the last video. (the one with the team in the blue lights)
So, have a look at the Teaser video i’ve made for both of the teams : (exit father-mode 😉
And also we’ve made a clip of this whole dance-act.(one of the many they’ve got).
Great statement of Esther Dyson at Health 2.0 in DC
A day like this makes you grateful of what you got and who you are. Also it makes you makes you realize how grateful you should to be able to live in good health.
The day started with the announcement of @mautje1975 and her husband @vanmaanen who lost their dear friend Dion this night.
Next i received a lovely tender mail of @ragnaja about how things are, who suffered a stroke some weeks ago.
And in one and a half hour (14:00 CEST) @ontmaagding will stop living this world, because of cancer. (see his blog in a Google translation )
And this is only in my little network on twitter.
Days like this makes you silent, REthinking the things you do, and be lucky, live the days and help others. We only have little time, in this life, on this place.
This is a Google Translation of this page
Starting this month, patients themselves how a guideline for health care providers should look like. Freya, the patient for couples with fertility problems, and the UMC St Radboud have jointly developed a website (press here for Google translation of website)with recommendations for proper care for these couples. Patients can self new recommendations to add or change existing recommendations. They can also assign a score to the recommendations.The recommendations that patients consider most important are new and used directly for updating guidelines.
The developed system is also useful guidelines for other areas of concern.
For the treatment of virtually all medical problems are guidelines and protocols. There are now thousands. They are developed and managed by national and international health organizations, medical associations and umbrella organizations. The direct involvement of this patient has so far been minimal. There is now changed. Members of patient Freya, together with fertility experts from the UMC St Radboud developed a method for making recommendations for patient guidelines. These are for the entire network of professionals involved in fertility issues involved. So, not only for IVF doctors or gynecologists, but also for general practitioners, urologists, psychologists and educators. The recommendations thus have been established, can be found on a website www.freyawiki.nl , which launched this month.
Patients at the helm.
Patients themselves at the helm in developing the new website. They design and functions put forward. The website is divided into seven phases of care: general care, physician, obstetrician / fertility doctor, urologist, laboratory, and other emotional support.
Patients with fertility problems in different care stages add recommendations and indicate how important they find the recommendations. Per care phase, the five recommendations the highest score, will become part of the guidelines. Guidelines remain current and ongoing security of patient participation is guaranteed.
The development of the website is made possible by a grant from ZonMw.
