Meth Mouth

More About Meth Mouth and Teeth [MMT]

By Anonymous DEA Agent

Meth Mouth Teeth is severe tooth decay and tooth loss, as well as tooth fracture, acid erosion, and other oral problems, potentially symptomatic of extended use of the drug methamphetamine. The condition is thought to be caused by a combination of side effects of the drug and lifestyle factors, which may be present in long-term users.

However, the legitimacy of meth mouth as a unique condition has been questioned because of the similar effects of some other drugs on teeth. Images of diseased mouths are often used in anti-drug campaigns.

 ******

EDITOR’S NOTE: I do not know if this is a legitimate picture or not. But, I do suggest that we all “Just Say No to Drugs”. And; as a dental school drop out, I have an affinity for all pro-dentite colleagues.

ABOUT: e-Podiatry Consent Forms™

untitledhttp://www.ePodiatryConsentForms.com

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBBS DPM FACFAS MBA MEd

CUSTOMIZABLE CMS & AGENCY FOR HEALTHCARE RESEARCH AND QUALITY STYLED PROTOCOLS, CHECKLISTS AND TEMPLATES 

… Specifically for Podiatrists …    

e-Podiatry Consent Forms™ is an innovative new suite of software programs from the Institute of Medical Business Advisors [iMBA, Inc]. Our products solve your informed consent problems and enhance the education, discussion and documentation of the informed consent process for all podiatrists performing foot, ankle and leg reconstructive surgical procedures.

THE PROBLEM

All podiatrists are being pressured by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS], the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations [JCAHO], liability carriers and private insurance payers to make their consent process more patient-friendly, informed and easily understood. And, the pressure to standardize and comply is great.

Most recently, based on the need to make healthcare even safer, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) undertook a major study to identify patient safety issues and develop recommendations for “best practices”.

The AHRQ Evidence Report

The AHRQ report identified the challenge of addressing shortcomings such as missed, incomplete or not fully comprehended informed consent, as a significant patient safety issue and opportunity for improvement.

The authors of the AHRQ report hypothesized that better informed patients:

“are less likely to experience errors by acting as another layer of protection.”

And, the AHRQ study ranked a “more interactive informed consent process” among the top 11 practices supporting more widespread implementation; especially for surgical consent forms.

THE SOLUTION

Why Us: https://epodiatryconsentforms.com/why-us/

One answer to the modern risk-management problem of “informed consent interactivity” may be e-Podiatry Consent Forms™  We license two core interactive surgical products, and a reference library, with related concepts and products in development:

  • Forefoot, Mid-Foot and Simple Rear-Foot Version
  • Complex Rear-Foot, Ankle and Lower Leg Version
  • Comprehensive content library for extreme customization.

Each e-Podiatry Consent Forms™ CD-ROM [secure email delivery is now available] is increasingly trusted as the simple solution to standardized communications across the entire office-enterprise; from managing-risk, informing-patients and complying with modern regulatory requirements through enhanced patient-centric informed consent encounters.

Thus, by improving the consistency, details, documentation and effectiveness of the informed consent process, e-Podiatry Consent Forms™ equips all podiatric surgeons with the tools needed to augment quality standards, reduce litigation potential and improve patient outcomes and safety.

Efficient V. Effective V. Affective

Understand and Know the Difference

[By staff reporters] 

Efficient – Performing or functioning in the best possible manner with the least waste of time and effort. The difference between effectiveness and efficiency can be summed up shortly, sweetly and succinctly right.

Effective – Produces the results you want. And that’s a very appropriate way to define effective, because we get the adjective from the noun effect—a result. It’s not too hard to remember the difference between affective and effective. You just have to use a small upside-down mnemonic device—when it comes to affective and effective, a is for emotion, and e is for action.

AFFECTIVE – Relating to moods, feelings, and attitudes.

Assessment In taking into consideration resource consumption furthermore, Effectiveness is only about the output while Efficiency is about the outcome. In other words, to be effective is to “do the right things” while to be efficient is to “do things right.”.
