Must have book “Health Care USA Seventh Edition to answer questions. Authors Harry A. Sulz and Kristina M. Young
Chpt 1. The first two questions must have a minimum of 200 words
- Dr. Sultz talks about the “tyranny of technology” in modern medicine. To what is he referring? How does this tyranny impact health care management, leadership, and planning? Have you experienced the tyranny yourself? Provide an example if possible.
- One of the most interesting topics in this course is the natural history of disease in humans, presented in detail by Dr. Sultz. This natural history can be applied to any disease process, and it also points out where we, as medical professionals, can intervene for the good. Provide an overview of this topic, tracing the natural history of disease, and including the prepathogenesis and pathogenesis periods.
Go to http://www.ama-assn.org, and search for “A prescription for health care system stakeholders.” Here Dr. Cecil Wilson, President of the American Medical Association, provides his “prescriptions” for key stakeholders in U.S. health care reform. Dr. Wilson’s 30+ years of medical leadership has given him a broad view of this topic.
Part 1: Discuss Dr. Wilson’s “prescription” for the private sector, business, and government. Do you concur with this prescription? Why, or why not?
Part 2: Discuss Dr. Wilson’s “prescription” for patients, medical students, and physicians. Do you concur with this prescription? Why, or why not?
