The Reality of Today’s Long-Term Medical Missions

By Harold P. Adolph, MD, FACS / November 1, 2012 /

Perhaps our concept of a career missionary doctorā€™s family might sound similar to this . . . a poor missionary surgeon and his family give up a ā€œgood American doctorā€™s family lifeā€ to live in endless poverty. They suffer through a hand-to-mouth existence in an African country full of intrigue, Satan worship, witchcraft, fear, poisonings, arson, coups, Marxist takeovers, massive killings and persecution of Christians. Their children are forced to be homeschooled by their parents. They have jobs at the mission hospital from a very young age. Their future education and life is tenuous at best. They canā€™t possibly amount to anything and will probably die early of some terrible tropical disease that is yet to be unearthed.

Facing the Virus Overseas

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / June 21, 2021 /

When COVID-19 began sweeping around the globe in early 2020, career healthcare missionaries were faced with the option of staying in their countries of service to weather the storm or evacuating back to the United States before the borders closed. Without sufficient quantities of protective equipment for staff members, would rural mission hospitals be able to survive the pandemic? In countries where the medical infrastructure is limited at best, would there be enough resources? What about food and other supplies to help to meet the day-to-day needs if the airports closed?

The Dr. John Patrick Bioethics Column: How do we push back on the hubris of secularism?

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / June 21, 2021 /

You have never seen and will never see a multi-cultural patient. Every patient inhabits a cultural story of meaning, even though they are often unaware of this fact. The blue-collar neighborhood where I grew up lived by Judeo-Christian ethics. Though almost no one went to church, they did send their children to Sunday school as a kind of visceral acknowledgement of needing something more. Many of you remember when a blue-collar argument on morals would end when someone said, ā€œThe Bible saysā€¦.ā€ That doesnā€™t happen anymore, and that is the triumph of secular power.

Artificial Intelligence and the Christian Physician

By William P. Cheshire, Jr., MD / June 1, 2020 /

To speak of artificial intelligence (AI) conjures dazzling images of an electronically reconfigured future managed, if not dominated, by calculating, thinking, autonomous machines. Realistically, AI has the potential to deliver numerous useful benefits to medical practice, especially as progress in medical science and healthcare delivery rely increasingly on digital technologies to store and analyze huge data sets. The health information in the human genome and the scientific content of medical journals, for example, exceed the capacity of the human brain to recall, interpret or keep up with exponential advances. AI promises to bridge that gap. Proponents are calling AI the fourth technological revolution following the neolithic transition to agriculture, the industrial revolution utilizing mechanized production and new sources of power, and the digital revolution based on computer processing of digital information.

Healthcare has changed dramatically over the past fifty years. Theories abound as to the various causes and their effects ā€“ with managed care, the Generation X work ethic, and increased numbers of women in medicine being three commonly cited reasons for the decline of the traditional ā€œfamily docā€ who made house-calls and whose work hours were 24/7 as needed and the steep increase in the ā€œphysician shift workerā€ who figuratively clocks in and out and leaves his pager behind when he is off duty. Managed care brought financial pressures to bear on physicians in solo practice. Generation X brought a tide of newly graduated physicians whose definition of balance was quite different from that of their parentsā€™ generation.

George MacDonald, mentor to C. S.

Few professions have the myriad of obstacles facing a vibrant marriage that a medical career brings. At the same time, medicine is a vocation with great potential benefitsā€”both to the couple and the lives they touchā€”as God works through their union. How crucial it is for us to focus on helping each other be all God has intended for us to be as individuals and as a couple.

CPR in the Times of COVID-19

By Christine C. Toevs, MD / April 7, 2020 /

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is universally applied in cardiac standstill, unless a physician order is given to Do Not Resuscitate (DNR). CPR is the only procedure that can be performed without a physician order; a nurse cannot give aspirin, start an IV or feed a patient without an order. However, CPR is the automatic default when the heart stops. This universal application has created several ethical issues, and the current pandemic now has us questioning if CPR should be the automatic default.

Vaccines and Conscience Protection

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / March 2, 2021 /

It has been over a year since the first diagnosis of COVID-19 in the United States. Due to this pandemic’s effects, our society has experienced limitations in personal freedoms to a level we have never known. Social interactions and work environments have been changed by social distancing, masks, hospital and nursing home visitation restrictions and working from home. Freedom of movement about our communities and the nation has been limited by “stay-at-home orders” and mass travel restrictions. The availability of vaccines provides a sliver of hope but also raises many questions. Issues our society must address include prioritizing equitable vaccine distribution and the potential for coercive mandates on vaccine use.

But God: Finding the Silver Lining

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / June 21, 2021 /

I remember early on hearing in the news about a virus causing problems in China. It wasnā€™t long before we heard news of it spreading. As it began to spread, we were busy planning for March, our busiest month of mission trips. We send the most teams in the month of March, which gives mission opportunities for various schools during the annual spring break period. We sent our first two teams out before countries began closing their borders. While these two teams were still out of the country, we began cancelling our remaining trips. First it was for the month, then it became two and on through the summer. Before we knew it, we had cancelled every single remaining mission trip scheduled throughout the remainder of 2020ā€”all as a result of COVID-19.
