Use of new synthetic drugs among adolescents has emerged as a phenomenon of the Internet age. New designer drugs produced in clandestine laboratories are labeled as household products and are deceptively marketed as “legal highs” over the World Wide Web.

May 20, 2014

The story of two doctors, a father and son, who practiced in very different times and the evolution of the ethics that profoundly influence health care. As a practicing physician and longtime member of his hospital's ethics committee, Dr. Barron Lerner thought he had heard it all. But in the mid-1990s, his father, an infectious diseases physician, told him a stunning story: he had physically placed his body over an end-stage patient who had stopped breathing, preventing his colleagues from performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, even though CPR was the ethically and legally accepted thing to do. Over the next few years, the senior Dr. Lerner tried to speed the deaths of his seriously ill mother and mother-in-law to spare them further suffering.

The care for Americans with a psychiatric illness is currently undergoing a crisis that affects not only those people in need of care, but the economics and effectiveness of the entire health care system . Our failure to effectively identify and treat mental illness is showing up in the violent actions of troubled adolescents, the huge economic cost in lost earnings estimated at $193 billion, the cost of maintaining large prison populations.

March 25, 2014

A 1965 book, Intern, by “Doctor X,” set a precedent for exposing difficult realities underlying medical education. The stories of the behind-the-scenes world of the hospital put this book on the best-seller list for weeks.  But the motivation was not to write a “tell-all,” but rather to change the medical training regimen for the better. This talk will explore not only what these narratives said about the education of doctors, but also why the authors wrote when they did, at a time when social change, and rights movements in particular, transformed the American medical profession in the late 20th century.

March 24, 2014

Innovation and reform are sweeping health care.  Becoming patient-centered is among the most profoundly important and the least understood of these imperatives.  Yet many agree on one cornerstone--that patient-centeredness begins with the patient’s experience of health care.  Increasingly it will determine how hospitals, health centers and physicians are rated, paid and used.  How do you measure patient experience?  How good are our measures?  What are the most important factors affecting a patient’s experience?  And how do you start to improve it? 

March 19, 2014

March 6, 2014

In 2008, patients and pharmacies across North America began reporting more severe shortages affecting more numerous drugs: some injectables; some pills; all older, cheaper, off-patent remedies, called “generics.” Using media reports, scientific articles, interviews, government documents, and the evidence of previous shortages from as early as World War II, this paper will trace the history of the current drug shortage crisis. It will also delve deeper into the pharmaceutical past to identify potential causes.

March 4, 2014

It is hosted every other year by a select institution from around the globe and this year will be held for the first time on UK soil when it comes to Manchester in March 2014.

February 20, 2014

Although the London Bills of Mortality are generally seen as part of the Scientific Revolution, the City of London had begun collecting parish-by-parish mortality data in the mid-sixteenth century. During the politically rocky period between the death of Henry VIII and the accession of Elizabeth I, Reformation London gathered detailed weekly reports for use not just during plagues but to support a broad range of community-based health efforts. This talk will show how that strategy arose from the City’s exceptionally strong charter and the close ties among its guild system, City officials, and the established church.

December 4, 2013

The library world is now an electronic world. However, issues of access to information have, ironically, been exacerbated by the growth of digital journals. In particular, questions of expense have dogged discussions of electronic access. Libraries, universities, and research institutions are all exploring different responses to the challenge of free and ready exchange of research findings. Open Access (OA) has become a key response. Yet, issues of quality, authority, and review have threatened the promise of OA journals.

The topic of mandatory flu vaccinations for healthcare workers has been a subject of some controversy for many years.

Please join us for the 2013 Alison Norris Nephrology Symposium on the topic of "Kidney Transplantation: Psychosocial and Ethical Issues."

October 22, 2013

Addiction to legal sedatives, stimulants, and narcotics has consistently dwarfed street drug use throughout the 20th century, yet drug-war historians (like anti-drug warriors) typically ignore them in favor of heroin, cocaine, or marijuana. Ironically, such scholarship can unintentionally reinforce the historical association of drug problems with urban racial minorities. David Herzberg’s talk examines the long history of prescription drug abuse—a mostly “white” and often rural story—in an effort to paint a broader picture of the experience of addiction in America, and to explore a lost laboratory of less racially charged drug policies.

October 8, 2013

By current consensus definitions, "hypertension", or high blood pressure, affects a third of all adults in the United States, and well over half of all people aged over 60. But despite the fact that it is the most common chronic condition treated by clinicians, big questions still remain. At what level of blood pressure should we diagnose hypertension and how aggressively should we treat it?

October 5, 2013

Carbon dust is a technique perfected by medical artist Max Brodel, at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, in the late 19th century.
