Le cure palliative nel territorio: la SAMOT a Caltanissetta

@ VOL 2 ON JUL 19, 2018

The reference to the themes of humanization and the appropriateness of the treatments lead to palliative care as a concrete possibility for the treatment of the person who is in a terminal phase of illness. Palliative care underpins a carefree paradigm at all, entering the field when medicine seems to have to surrender to its limit and the finiteness of the human condition. Yet if the horizon of reference is not the pathology to be fought but rather a human being to be treated, this approach of medicine deploys its full potential.

L’accenno ai temi della umanizzazione e della appropriatezza dei trattamenti conducono alle cure palliative quale possibilità di concreta riposta alla cura della persona che si trova in una fase terminale di malattia. Le cure palliative sottendono un paradigma assistenziale affatto scontato, entrando in campo quando la medicina sembra dover arrendersi al proprio limite e alla finitezza della condizione umana. Eppure se l'orizzonte di riferimento non è la patologia da combattere ma piuttosto un essere umano da curare, questo approccio della medicina dispiega tutta la sua potenzialità.

PKN Posters: Nantes Vol. 5

The western France city of Nantes has another exciting event planned for next Tuesday, April 9. Organizer Marie-Neige Roux has this to say about PKN Nantes Vol. 5: "...all the speakers will have this theme in common: “Green”, due to the fact that Nantes is the 2013 European Green Capital city!" And on the cool poster from French graphic design studio Acetone Graphik, Yohann Morvan has this to say: "I see PechaKucha like a big mass of creativity. Each presenter speaks like a 'moralizer' to convince a say 'believe in my idea.'" ... "This poster is composed by impossible type forms and icons, a form of propaganda message ? My treatment in two-color process try to purify for a better and simple read and call back the posters of church concerts in the 50's."

The Future of Cancer Care

“With all these innovations, we’re left with a larger rate of cancer survivors.” Due to considerable progress in cancer treatment and survival rates, the population of cancer survivors can be anticipated to keep expanding in the foreseeable future. Though these patients may be cured of their original disease, survivors often have a to deal with a compromised quality of life.

Hands with Hope

“There are stories after stories of young children who are already missing permanent teeth because their moms had pulled them because the excruciating pain was too much to bear. ” Restless in her day-to-day profession of dental hygienist, Annie Nardone found a way to create more meaningful work for herself while still using her expertise in dentistry. In PechaKucha Night Batavia’s 1st volume, she discusses how she created Hands with Hope, a not-for-profit foundation, to deliver training, dental treatment, equipment, and supplies to impoverished communities in Central America. Currently, Hands with Hope maintains and supports three fully functioning dental clinics in Honduras and Guatemala, which are run and operated by locally trained individuals eager to serve their communities.
