From the womb to the tomb by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"The United States, the richest country in the world, currently ranks 27th in the health of its citizens. Lagging behind not only most of the rich countries, but a few poor ones as well. Fifty years ago, the US was among the top five. What happened in the past five decades to cause this decline? Bezruchka explains that an increasing stratification between the rich and the poor plays a major role. Life spans and infant mortality rates depend very much on the hierarchal structure of a society. And new research shows that half of what influences our health as adults is largely determined before the age of five. What can we learn from other countries whose citizens live longer and healthier lives?"--Publisher
Health & wealth by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )

"Health and longevity are based upon factors we can all acknowledge: genetics, lifestyle and luck among them. They are also largely taken for granted. But as Stephen Bezruchka explains, social class has a far more profound effect in the U.S. than we realize, in ways we wouldn't guess, even for the many of us who consider ourselves middle class."--Publisher
Is America driving you crazy? by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"The number of Americans suffering from mental illness has nearly doubled since 1987. That's when Prozac, the first of the "wonder drugs" was introduced. Mental disorders are reported in more than 25% of returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan. And more than 1 in 4 college students are now on anti-depressants. With all the new drugs available for treatment, depression and anxiety disorders continue to rise. Is our drug-based system of care fueling this epidemic? With an unstable future and fewer family and community ties to help deal with problems, anxiety is also heightened by other factors related to modern society, such as war, global warming, advanced technology and globalization. What can we do to create a healthier society and treat those afflicted with mental illness in a more effective way?"--Alternative Radio website

Damaged care by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"The most enduring and quoted tradition in medicine is the Hippocratic Oath. It states, "As to diseases, make a habit of two things, to help, or at least, to do no harm." Yet, the U.S., which spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world and is known for its medical schools and state of the art treatment, has a higher rate of infant mortality, heart disease, cancer and depression than most other rich nations. In fact, it is often the treatment that is making patients ill. A recent report indicates that tens of thousands of people die in American hospitals every year from medical errors. Although healthcare providers, insurance and drug companies are partly to blame, the structure of the healthcare system plays a bigger role. Healthier societies recognize that the primary causes of disease are social and economic, therefore, the remedies must be social and economic as well. "--Publisher

The social determinants as part of the medical school curriculum an exploratory analysis of domestic and international medical schools by Dunia Faulx( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The social determinants of health (SDOH) are increasingly recognized as an important topic however it is only recently that the American medical focus has incorporated anything other than biological pathways to health. An ideological shift from our current practice of 'disease-care' to a framework that includes the socio-economic environment is challenging. As education is an effective way to influence change it is important to know what American medical students are learning about the SDOH and, more importantly, what are they not learning when compared to medical students outside of the US. To assess the emphasis placed on the social determinants of health in medical education, the curricula of 26 universities were analyzed for key terms to ascertain the presence of the SDOH. Results indicate that American medical students overall have less exposure to the SDOH throughout their required course work when compared to schools outside of the United States. Canadian medical schools in particular integrate these concepts into the majority of a students' coursework. By looking at a snapshot of medical curricula we can understand where medical education in the United States currently stands as well as where it has room to expand. Identifying what gaps exist in medical education will enable curriculum committees to address these gaps to ensure a more holistic medical education for future physicians
