Medici di famiglia introvabili, le cause?

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 5 novembre 2019

«La crisi demografica della medicina generale è un effetto del ritrarsi del servizio sanitario nazionale e non di errori di programmazione: è più facile capirlo nelle grandi città. A Milano, anche se avessimo molti giovani per sostituire chi va via, resterebbe arduo trovare chi vada a coprire zone carenti. I motivi economici si sommano a quelli di sicurezza, assicurativi, di mancata gratificazione». Roberto Carlo Rossi presidente dell’Ordine dei Medici meneghino prova a spiegare perché a Milano città manchino 106 medici di famiglia e altri 140 se ne cerchino nell’hinterland. Tra 10 anni, fra i 14 milioni di italiani sprovvisti di curante, ci saranno soprattutto milanesi. Certo, la metropoli è un caso particolare, ma rappresenta un Belpaese dove -per arginare gli esodi- il decreto Calabria ha aperto i bandi a medici ancora iscritti alle scuole di formazione e ha consentito un massimale più alto a chi partecipi ad aggregazioni e case della salute.Le strutture più complesse che sanno minimizzare i costi si prestano tra l’altro meglio ad ospitare giovani medici. Forse presto, il milanese avrà prima di altri meno studi sotto casa e più ospedaletti. Intanto, a Milano, Brescia, Bologna, sono arrivati i primi studi di medicina generale aperti da un centro privato. Per Rossi nel Servizio sanitario nazionale si è rotto qualcosa. «Fa impressione constatare come i cittadini si rivolgano a strutture a pagamento per avere un servizio, il medico di famiglia, che la sanità pubblica offre gratuitamente. Del resto, fa altrettanta impressione leggere oggi un coordinatore degli assessori che lamenta il costo del medico convenzionato rispetto ad altri sanitari non medici, e personalità di governo che danno questo medico per finito. Sui media sistematici attacchi di opinion leader osservano come il medico di famiglia sia superato, anche se poi gli insuccessi dei bandi ci dicono che così facili da sostituire non siamo. Per fortuna ogni tanto ci sono interventi come la presa di posizione di Pier Mannuccio Mannucci pro-medicina generale o la lettera aperta dell’arcivescovo di Milano».Oggi all’aumento delle cause, al rapporto deteriorato con i pazienti (di cui poco si dice di quanto facciano le spese i nostri assistenti) alle incompatibilità che impediscono di crescere non solo a noi ma anche alla sanità pubblica si aggiunge il dato economico, una Milano dove le spese di studio prendono più della metà dello stipendio di un massimalista. Spingere tirocinanti riluttanti in questo contesto lavorativo non è una soluzione. Anzi, sortisce all’esterno l’effetto di far pensare che la preparazione da medico di famiglia sia meno strutturata che in altre specialità, ed allontana ulteriormente i giovani medici dallo scegliere questa importantissima professione. Per aprire la strada ai giovani si dovrebbe sottolineare ovunque l’importanza del nostro lavoro, smetterla con la stupidaggine che guadagniamo di più, tutelare il servizio sanitario pubblico misurando le parole. Ma al contrario si insiste con gli attacchi; i quali spianano la strada a un rapporto medico-paziente parallelo nel privato e, a lungo termine, a una sanità all’americana dove chi non ha soldi non accede alle cure».By Mauro Miserendino fonte Doctor33)

Christie’s Important Jewels Auction To Star Jewels From Eugénie

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 5 novembre 2019

London Christie’s Important Jewels auction on 27 November in London will present historic jewels formerly in the collection of Eugénie, The Last Empress Of France. Offered at auction will be an important pair of 19th century natural pearl earrings (estimate: £60,000-80,000), alongside a mid-19th century ruby and diamond heart locket pendant, circa 1850-60, (estimate: £10,000-15,000). The locket was included in the 2008 exhibition, Le Musée Chaumet, Le Grand Frisson – Bijoux de Sentiment, de la Renaissance à nos jours, in Paris. Adorned with circular-cut rubies and old and rose-cut diamonds, a glazed compartment on the reverse of the pendant contains a lock of hair reputedly belonging to Napoleon Ill. Married to Napoleon III, Eugénie de Montijo (1826-1920) was a woman of great elegance, beauty and charm. Born in Granada, Spain, she was educated at the fashionable convent of the Sacré-Coeur in Paris, and contributed immensely to the grandeur of the French court. From the beginning of her reign in 1853, Empress Eugénie did much to enhance the reputation of French haute joaillerie, which at that time inspired the whole of Europe. Her love of jewellery being legendary, she had many Crown jewels remounted to suit her personal taste and also commissioned new pieces from the most famous jewellers in Paris including Bapst and Chaumet.

Acerus Provides Update on Temporary Unavailability of Natesto in Canada and South Korea

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 5 novembre 2019

Acerus Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX:ASP, OTCQB:ASPCF) today provided an update on the temporary unavailability of NATESTO® in Canada and South Korea, following the previous announcement of the voluntary replacement of certain NATESTO® lots released on the Canadian and South Korean markets.Acerus made minor modifications to the manufacturing process that appear to have resolved the previously identified issues and has produced a batch of NATESTO® (the “Revised Batch”). While Acerus believed the changes would have been classified by Health Canada as level III, thereby requiring only an annual notification update to Health Canada and allowing for product to be released in Q4-2019, Health Canada, after much deliberation, classified the modifications as level I, requiring the submission of a Supplemental New Drug Submission (“SNDS”) prior to the release of the Revised Batch in the Canadian market. In the event that Health Canada utilizes the full regulatory allotted time for reviewing a SNDS, Acerus would expect the Revised Batch to be released in the Canadian Market in Q1-2021. Acerus continues to work with Health Canada to facilitate an expeditious review of the SNDS and minimize market disruptions.At this time, the current supply of NATESTO® to the United States is not affected by this situation. Acerus is working with its South Korean partner to determine whether the Revised Batch can be released in the South Korean market and, if so, under what timeframes.
