In order to demonstrate to potential for the use of the framework, an experiment, The Pain Opioid Epidemic Project will be suggested and the readers invited to take part in order to manifest an experiment in citizen engagement to address one of our current “national emergencies”. Using the Medical Case Presentation for deliberative dialogue to address the challenges facing the United States body politic. Putting the Pain Opioid Medical Case Presentation into Practice Article is an abbreviated presentation of The Pain Opioid Epidemic Case Presentation An experiment in Citizen Engagement. It is our goal to have an ongoing crowdsourced case conference that addresses the ongoing challenges associated with the pain opioid epidemic. To learn more about the project, our strategic plan, plan for further activities contact us.
The Medical Case Presentation: The Pain Opioid Epidemic (The Opioid Case) builds on an understanding of the complexity of the political ecosystem that has evolved from the constitutional DNA. It will particularly focus on exploring various political, social and other institutions and processes from the citizen perspective. More specifically, keeping with the medical case presentation framework, the article suggests a citizen based tool box to engage with the relevant stakeholders that are relevant to the the emergence and evolving devastation of the opioid epidemic. Suggestions are made to utilize the process and these tools to address other complex problems facing out country.
The role of the citizen within the pain opioid epidemic is than used as a case study to better understand the complexity of the ecosystem and to introduce a framework for citizen engagement.
An understanding of the complexity of the political ecosystem that has evolved from the constitutional DNA is essential for the exploration of the various political, social and other institutions and processes from the citizen perspective. The role of the citizen within the pain opioid epidemic is then used as a case study to better understand the complexity of the ecosystem and to introduce a framework for citizen engagement. More specifically, keeping with the medical case presentation framework, the article suggests a citizen-based tool box to engage with the relevant stakeholders that are central to the emergence and evolving devastation of the opioid epidemic. The role and utilizing digital technology as a toxin as well as potential treatment are made. Specific remedies for the reality of citizenship participation in the political process are reviewed. Suggestions are made to utilize the process and these tools to address other complex problems facing out country.
The opioid epidemic continues to have a devastating impact on many individuals and communities throughout the United States. The statistics are overwhelming. The personal stories are heartbreaking. The financial cost staggering. In many ways the opioid epidemic has come to highlight and act as a symptoms for many underlying challenges faced by the United states. We believe that the symptoms associated with opioid use and the societal response to the challenge offer a focused but complex issue that can provide a way to explore the political system, its limitations and most importantly, examine the potential for citizen involvement in their ecosystem. The Opioid Case serves to test the proposition that with the proper framework and easy to use citizen-oriented tools, we can more effectively collaborate to address complex problems.
The epidemic has been attributed to many of the social challenges facing Americans and lead to marginalization, alienation, despair and sense of hopelessness. It has often been stated and research appears to bear out that a major driver of the epidemic are societal changes, alienation and hopelessness experienced by many citizens. Rates of opioid abuse, addiction, and fatal overdose rise along with unemployment and other social determinants.In this medical case presentation we use the complexity of the opioid epidemic to highlight the potential for the use of the medical case presentation to inform citizens and provide tools to engage within the political ecosystem.
The Putting the Pain Opioid Medical Case Presentation into Practice
The medical case presentation is an essential framework for a focused disciplined approach to addressing medical problems. Healthcare professionals use the medical case presentation to identify, analyze, develop, implement and monitor a solution based “treatment plan” for medical problems. When used effectively, it allows healthcare professionals to communicate and share information among varied clinical disciplines to develop testable hypotheses for simple and complex problems. The framework allows for clearly identifying problems and providing objective data to support the diagnosis and “treatment plan.” The Medical Case Presentation is uniquely positioned to address systematic changes over time. Through progress notes addressing specific problems, we’ll be able to adapt to new issues to clearly identify problems and potential solutions.
