Trafficking

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / December 10, 2018 / Comments Off on Trafficking

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Human trafficking is most commonly defined as:

Sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age
The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage or slavery.
A victim does not need to be physically transported from one location to another in order for the crime to fall within these definitions.
There are several types of human trafficking including forced labor, sex trafficking, forced child labor, bonded labor, involuntary domestic servitude, debt bondage among migrant laborers and child soldiers. Human trafficking occurs in every part of the world, from less developed countries to more developed countries. As such, it is a crime under U.S. and international law. Victims can be any age, any gender and from any economic standing in life.

CMDA offers continuing education for healthcare professionals to learn more about human trafficking and how to provide healthcare to victims. To get started, visit www.cmda.org/tip.

Physician as Employee: Is This What I Signed Up For?

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / September 1, 2008 /

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.

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.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING: Common Psychiatric Consequences of Human Trafficking on Children and Adolescents and Their Medical Management

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / March 15, 2021 /

Human Trafficking affects numerous children and teens throughout the world. One of the significant health consequences of this are mental health problems. Of note are high rates of anxiety, depression, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) identified in multiple studies of trafficked children. Full medical care of these individuals therefore will entail screening for the symptoms of mental health disorders. Treatment should involve therapy as much is available in the areas where they are recovering and learning to return to normal life. Medications can be considered for these mental health diagnoses as well with care taken in prescribing for children and teenagers. This article gives a framework for primary care professionals to establish mental healthcare as part of their management of children and adolescents who have been through human trafficking.

Group letter to Alex M. Azar II, Secretary, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / January 9, 2020 / Comments Off on Group letter to Alex M. Azar II, Secretary, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

As you know, several U.S. jurisdictions have passed legislation giving doctors immunity from civil and criminal liability for assisting the suicide of persons diagnosed with terminal disabilities. Tragically, in these jurisdictions and for this class of persons, and for them alone, suicides are now facilitated by physicians, usually with no psychological assessment or other medical treatment, typically with no consultation with family and loved ones, and in every case without the interventions and protections provided as a matter of course to all other suicidal persons.

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA / April 1, 2016 /

She is not alone in her dissatisfaction with some aspects of medical practice and her search for an alternative career path. Many physicians at varying stages of life are finding themselves considering alternative career pathsā€”often, much to their own surprise.

Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / November 19, 2019 / Comments Off on Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019

As members of the Commission on Human Trafficking of the Christian Medical Association, we are writing to protest the attempt to decriminalize commercial sex with the “Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019”. This attempt to decriminalize the degradation of mostly women and girls in commercial sex as well as the sex buyer is morally and ethically wrong.

Growth Spurt

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / December 8, 2020 /

Sometimes reality is far more awe-inspiring than anything even the most imaginative of writers could dream up. Decades ago, the idea that a woman could become pregnant with her adopted child seemed like science fiction. However, reproductive medicine has long since crossed biological boundaries in ways that once seemed impossible, creating complex problems that require morally sound, technology-driven solutions. Since 2003, the Knoxville, Tennessee-based National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) has been the national leader for one such solution: embryo donation/embryo adoption (ED/EA). The NEDC specializes in honoring life in its very earliest stages and facilitating pregnancies for women who want to carry their adopted children. And these days, the ministry is busier than ever, adding new initiatives and team members to expand the quality and scope of its life-affirming work.

Spiritual Assessment in Clinical Care [Part 2] – The LORD’s LAP

By Walt Larimore, MD / September 1, 2015 /

Iā€™ve used this assessment with hundreds and hundreds of new patients over the last 25 years; however, this spiritual assessment tool, like most described in the medical literature, fails to inquire about a critical item involving spiritual health: religious struggle.

Feed My Sheep

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / December 8, 2020 /

As Christians in healthcare, we are called to take our faith into the workplace, whether it be in a clinic, in a hospital or in academia. My journey in medicine led me from the clinic into academia. I actually consider myself an accidental academician who never meant to end up in charge of training a portion of the physician assistant workforce. This, however, is exactly why I am writing this story, to encourage my colleagues and help them understand who the sheep are, why they need feeding, how to feed them and when to stop feeding them.

National Institute of Family & Life Advocates v. Becerra

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / January 18, 2018 /

The freedom of speech is a bedrock principle of our nation, enshrined in the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment. The right to speak or not to speak, however, is not unlimited. There are certain narrow exceptions when the government can, in fact, compel speech, including in the commercial or professional context. But the disclosure required by the California Reproductive FACT Act is neither commercial speech nor professional speech. See Pet. Br. Part II.Aā€“B. Nor does the Act regulate informed consent by any medical standard. See id. Part II.C.

Outside the Box: Doctors in Nontraditional Careers

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / August 27, 2018 /

My favorite part of medicine is the moments I spend in direct patient care and in talking with specialists about patients. All the rest of it I find pretty unsatisfying. I feel limited by my inefficiency as well as pretty painful hand arthritis, so I had mixed feelings about the prospect of increasing my hours doing medicine after my kids were launched.

As I entered ā€œMs. Vā€™sā€ room, I could see her neck and leg braces, and as I came around the dental chair to greet her, I could see pain in her face. Two days before, she was hit by a car while crossing the road and her two front teeth were broken all the way to the nerve. It was obvious her entire body hurt, but she said the pain from her teeth was simply unbearable.

Twenty years ago, God called me to return to Cuba, the country where I was raised by my parents before it was overtaken by a communist regime that vehemently opposed my belief in Christ and severely discriminated against people of faith.

Anxious? Me, Too. How To Lean On God When Feelings Donā€™t Cooperate

Iā€™ve been a family doctor in the same location for 30 years, so many of my patients have been with me a decadeā€¦or twoā€¦or three. Following people through their life stages has been a joy. Weā€™ve grown older together. Iā€™ve been acutely aware of this in the last two weeks as Iā€™ve called patients to reschedule them. Iā€™ve wanted to call them myself to make sure they donā€™t need anything, because Iā€™d rather they avoid any medical facility for the next six months.

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.
