There is an "outcome gap" between the rich and poor that is most noticeable with expensive-to-treat diseases like AIDS and tuberculosis. The majority of medical resources and therapies are concentrated in the rich, low-incidence regions such as the West. On the other hand, countries in the developing world have high rates of HIV but lack the necessary resources to treat them. [15] Medical errors and overmedication and other forms of iatrogenesis (harms caused by medical treatment) are also the focus of complaints and negative coverage. Practitioners of human factors engineeringbelieve that there is much that medicine may usefully gain by emulating concepts in aviation safety, where it is recognized that it is dangerous to place too much responsibility on one "superhuman" individual and expect him or her not to make errors.
  • 2. Reporting systems and checking mechanisms are becoming more common in identifying sources of error and improving practice. Clinical versus statistical, algorithmicdiagnostic methods were famously examined in psychiatric practice in a 1954 book by Paul E. Meehl, which found statistical methods superior. [16] A 2000 meta-analysis comparing these methods in both psychology and medicine found that statistical or "mechanical" diagnostic methods were, in [16] general, although not always, superior. Disparities in quality of care given among local demographics are often an additional cause of controversy. [17] For example, elderly mentally ill patients received poorer care during hospitalization in a 2008 study. [18] Rural poor African-American men were used in an infamous study of syphilis that denied them basic medical care.     Dr. Alan Moelleken MD, Public Library Resource Library Alan_Moelleken,MD_Biography Alan Moelleken, MD Curriculum Vitae Back Pain defined - Spine and Orthopedic Center Santa Barbara CA Carpal tunnel syndrome defined - Spinal and Orthpedic Center Chronic pain - Dr Alan Moelleken Spine and Orthopedic Center Neck Pain Dr Allen Moelleken Spine and Orthopedic Center Sciatica Dr Alen Molleken Spine and Othorpedic Center Spondylolisthesis Dr Moelleken Spine Ortho Center WEBPAGES WITH MEDICAL TERMS Law, Medical, Anti-trust, Expert Witness, Lawsuits, Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara, Medical Legal Terms Spine Orthopedic Center: Alan Moelleken MD Bio – Dr Alan Moelleken Resume – Back Pain – Carpal tunnel syndrome – Chronic pain – Neck Pain – Spine and Orthopedic Medical Staff – Sciatic – Spinal Cord Development – Spinal Cord Motor organization – Spinal Cord Segments – Spinal Cord Somatosensory Organization – Spinal Cord – Spinal Cord Injury – Spinal Cord Spinocerebellar Tracts –Spondylolisthesis Spine Cord -
