Integrating East Asian Medicine into Contemporary Healthcare
Hugh Macpherson, Volker G. Scheid
editore: Churchill Livingstone
Traditional East Asian healthcare systems have moved rapidly from the fringes of healthcare systems in the West towards the centre over the past 50 years. This change of status for traditional medicines presents their practitioners with both opportunities and challenges as the focus shifts from one of opposition towards one of integration into biomedically dominated healthcare systems. "Integrating East Asian Medicine into Contemporary Healthcare" examines the opportunities and challenges of integrating East Asian medicine into Western healthcare systems from an interdisciplinary perspective. Volker Scheid and Hugh MacPherson bring together contributions from acknowledged experts from a number of different disciplines - including clinical researchers, Chinese Medicine practitioners, historians, medical anthropologists, experts in the social studies of science, technology and medicine - to examine and debate the impact of the evidence-based medicine movement on the ongoing modernization of East Asian medicines. This book considers the following questions: What are the values, goals and ethics implicit within traditional East Asian medical practices? What claims to effectiveness and safety are made by East Asian medical practices? What is at stake in subjecting these medical practices to biomedical models of evaluation? What constitutes best practice? How is it to be defined and measured? What are the ideologies and politics behind the process of integration of East Asian medical practices into modern health care systems? And what can we learn from a variety of models of integration into contemporary healthcare?

Public Health and Infectious Diseases
Davidson H. Hamer, James H. Maguiree altri
editore: Elsevier Science Publishing Co Inc
Emerging infectious diseases may be defined as diseases being caused by pathogens only recently recognized to exist. This group of diseases is important globally, and the experience of the last 30 years suggests that new emerging diseases are likely to bedevil us. As the global climate changes, so changes the environment, which can support not only the pathogens, but also their vectors of transmission. This expands the exposure and effects of infectious disease and, therefore, the importance of widespread understanding of the relationship between public health and infectious disease. This work brings together chapters that explain reasons for the emergence of these infectious diseases. These include the ecological context of human interactions with other humans, with animals that may host human pathogens, and with a changing agricultural and industrial environment, increasing resistance to antimicrobials, the ubiquity of global travel, and international commerce. * Features the latest discoveries related to influenza with a newly published article by Davidson Hamer and Jean van Seventer * Provides a listing of rare diseases that have become resurgent or spread their geographic distribution and are re-emergent * Highlights dengue and malaria, as well as agents such as West Nile and other arboviruses that have spread to new continents causing widespread concerns * Includes discussions of climate influencing the spread of infectious disease and political and societal aspects
