  • In the past decade there has been a dramatic increase in the utilization of the Internet all over the world.
    There needs to be more efforts to utilize Internet for the purpose of prevention
    “The industrial development has been developed by the hydro-mechanical power, steam engine power, and the electrical power.  - Today our industry relies on the Internet and the Internet infrastructure. This has as much impact as the previous industrial infrastructures”- Vint Cerf, quote from Supercourse lecture http://www.pitt.edu/~super1/lecture/lec1351/002.htm
  • During the past 5 years the Lingua Franca of health research and science has become PowerPoint. Most of our current scientific knowledge has been assembled in PowerPoint lectures. Moreover the growth of PowerPoint on the net has been astonishing. In 1994 there were few lectures, now there are over 5 million. If we could establish a global system to make the academic lectures freely accessible in a virtual Library of lectures we could markedly improve the sharing of our prevention knowledge.
    Supercourse is the global library of lectures shared for free by 10000 faculty members from 152 countries of the world. It was originally funded by NASA and currently funded by the National Library of Medicine, NIH, USA
    www.pitt.edu/~super1
  • Negli ultimi 5 anni PowerPoint è diventato la Lingua Franca della ricerca e della scienza nel campo sanitario. La maggior parte delle nostre conoscenze attuali è stata organizzata in forma di presentazioni in PowerPoint. Inoltre la crescita di PowerPoint nella rete è stata stupefacente. Nel 1994 c’erano poche presentazioni, oggi ce ne sono oltre 5 milioni.
    Se noi potessimo istituire un sistema mondiale per rendere le lezioni accademiche liberamente accessibili in una biblioteca virtuale di lezioni, potremmo migliorare in modo netto la condivisione delle nostre conoscenze sulla prevenzione.
    Supercourse è la biblioteca mondiale di lezioni messe in comune gratis da 10.000 docenti di 152 Paesi di tutto il mondo. È stato finanziato dapprima dalla NASA e adesso è sostenuto dalla National Library of Medicine, NIH, USA.
    www.pitt.edu/~super1
  • We must differentiate telepreventive medicine from telemedicine. Telemedicine is designed to “cure” and it is expensive, it is unlikely that telemedicine can have any effect on global health. In contrast with telepreventive medicine we can reach millions with the prevention message. We have the potential to continue to improve global health. Supercourse is one of the examples of how important telepreventive medicine is at reaching big numbers of people with low costs.
    Golden lecture is a perfect tool for distribution of important information through the systems of telepreventive medicine. It utilizes inexpensive low bandwidth systems to reach millions of people.
  • We have been successful in obtaining outstanding lectures. Overall there are over 1200 lectures available.
    Supercourse currently has almost 10000 faculty members from 150 countries of the world
    E-mail Supercourse developers at super1@pitt.edu if you would like to obtain a free CD with 1038 lectures on prevention and public health

    10. 10. But putting matters more simply… Slide 10 The use of computers and the Internet should be enjoyable, practical, and productive. Web, email, chat resources should be easy to create. If you need help we are there to provide assistance. You can send us questions at the “contact us” link on www.cybernephrology.org or at the following Email addresses: Janice McDonald Michele Hales Kim Solez, M.D. jm5@ ualberta.ca Michele.Hales@ UAlberta.CA Kim.Solez@ UAlberta.CA We can help you create Internet resources specific to the local language and culture of your own
    11. 11. Slide 11 Out In Front! Remarkable Considering Nephrology’s size vs. all of Medicine  There are more than 800,000 physicians in the US and only about 5,000 are practicing renal medicine, so nephrologists represents only about 0.6% of total US physicians.  On the other hand, the cost of end stage kidney disease care is very high: 18 billion US dollars per annum in public and private money (source USRDS). This is nearly 2% of the 1 trillion dollar total annual health care budget of the US and rising rapidly.
    12. 12. Slide 12 Unique Resources for Patients Not Found In other Specialties  NEPHKIDS - For parents of children with renal disease, moderated by pediatric nephrologist.  KIDNEYDISEASE - For adult patients with kidney disease, moderated by 10 nephrologists all over the world! 18 Email discussion groups in all connecting more than 3000 health professionals and patients.
    13. 13. Email Discussion Groups Slide 13
    14. 14. Evidence-Based Medicine Sir Austin Bradford Hill, British Researcher: "All scientific work is incomplete- whether it be observational or experimental. All scientific work is liable to be upset or modified by advancing knowledge. This does not confer upon a freedom to ignore the knowledge we already have, or to postpone the action that it appears to demand at a given time. Who knows, asked Robert Browning, but that the world may end tonight? True, but on available evidence most of us make ready to commute on the 8:30 next day."
