CONCLUSION: For the majority of the physicians surveyed, psychiatry represented a public health priority, and their prioritising provides a probable explanation for their positive perception of their role in the management of mental disorders. However, we went on to observe that a number of difficulties constituted obstacles to their role in management of mental disorders and induced them to refer their patients to psychiatrists. Our analysis highlighted the impact of continuing education on physicians' attitudes and the interest of collaboration between practitioners. Efforts in university teaching and continuous educatio...

Authors: Alderfer J, Isturiz RE, Srivastava A Abstract College students in the United States are at an increased risk for meningococcal serogroup B disease or MenB, which causes the majority of invasive meningococcal disease in the country among adolescents and young adults (62%) and also across all age groups (36%) as of 2018. Approximately one-third of MenB cases among college students occur during campus outbreaks, which trigger substantial public health concern and costs associated with conducting rapid mass vaccination campaigns in an emergency setting. Eleven US college outbreaks of MenB disease have occurred...

CONCLUSIONS: Existing evidence on the safety and effectiveness of MMR/MMRV vaccines support their use for mass immunisation. Campaigns aimed at global eradication should assess epidemiological and socioeconomic situations of the countries as well as the capacity to achieve high vaccination coverage. More evidence is needed to assess whether the protective effect of MMR/MMRV could wane with time since immunisation. PMID: 32309885 [PubMed - in process]

New evidence published in the Cochrane Library today finds MMR, MMRV and MMR+V vaccines are effective and that they are not associated with increased risk of autism. Measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (also known as chickenpox) are infectious diseases caused by viruses. They are most common in children and young adults, and can lead to potentially fatal illnesses, disabilities and death. Measles remains one of the leading causes of childhood death around the globe. Rubella is also dangerous for pregnant women, as it can cause miscarriage or harm to unborn babies. The MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) is a combined...

The rise of vaccine-preventable illnesses, such as measles and hepatitis, in the United States and around the globe has been alarming in recent years. For women — especially those hoping to become pregnant, as well as women who are pregnant or have recently had a baby — vaccines can be a worrisome topic. There are many misconceptions about vaccine safety in and around pregnancy that can lead to confusion and unnecessary fear of a lifesaving medical tool. As a practicing ob/gyn, I often discuss vaccines with my patients and help them sort out fears versus facts. Which vaccines should you consider before concepti...

Conclusion The mumps outbreak at Harvard medical school among vaccinated students is not shocking news. Informed readers know that vaccines do not provide safe, effective, lasting immunity against diseases. Merck’s own employees have accused their colleagues of falsifying data to promote their vaccine as a highly effective method of preventing the spread of mumps, a claim that is untrue. Meanwhile, Harvard and other institutions who receive funding from vaccine makers claim a disease is highly contagious, rather than blaming a vaccine that doesn’t work. References:

Shocked by the growing number of children who die from vaccine-preventable diseases in Italy -- as well as stories of parents who refuse to vaccinate their kids -- a professor of microbiology and virology has decided to take on anti-vaxxers where they spread misinformation: on Facebook. For the more than 20,000 followers of his Facebook page, Dr. Roberto Burioni, a professor at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, Italy, explains the science behind vaccines and uses scientific data to refute rumors about their dangers. When he is not citing scientific studies, he pegs hi...

Conclusion Will Governor Jerry Brown think twice and really risk the wrath of the black community? Will he even read Mrs. Sullivan’s letter or care about the many religious groups opposing vaccinations due to their ingredients? It appears that more governments worldwide are mandating vaccinations on a daily basis and parents are completely powerless to stop them. Who are these people who make all the decisions, and what right do they have to impose their largely unproven theories that ALL vaccinations are safe and effective for ALL children? Let’s face it, it does make you wonder what their real agenda is, does...
