Ask Amy: Cousin considers helping relatives in poor health  The Washington Post

Dear Amy: I am the youngest first cousin in a very large family. I grew up in a different state but visited the family frequently until my father's death in 1986. I intentionally strayed away from my relatives because our views drastically differ. Many of them are high school dropouts with multiple children from many relationships. They also rely heavily on public assistance as a means of support. I do not condone this, especially when an individual is capable of employment. My spouse and I are married for 28 years with two grown children. They are both college graduates going on to pursue ...

New AFL plans to deal with mental health  The Age

The AFL will devote up to $3 million a year from 2020 into a new and systematic approach to mental health which will prioritise the well-being of players, coaches and football club staff. The league’s football boss Steve Hocking, who has led the game’s mental health review with players chief Paul Marsh, said AFL clubs would ‘‘look a lot different’’ in five years' time as they evolve into better athlete-servicing models with a new set of priorities. The reforms will be unveiled in a football year that began with Majak Daw’s fall from near the Bolte Bridge. The mental health red flags have co...

What's Doctor Burnout Costing America?  NPR

Doctor burnout is costing the U.S. health care system a lot — roughly $4.6 billion a year, according to a study published this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine. "Everybody who goes into medicine knows that it's a stressful career and that it's a lot of hard work," says Lotte Dyrbye, a physician and professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., who co-authored the study. She says the medical profession now carries an increasing load of paperwork and bureaucracy, adding stress to doctor's lives. "We want to be able to deliver good quality care to our patients, and our s...

Health costs will test Morrison - The Australian

Health costs will test Morrison  The Australian

As our population ages, we all have to work out how to stay healthy. Part of that equation is figuring how much we will have to pay to stay healthy. Health costs go up; they never go down. Every new drug costs a fortune to put on the PBS and, with inflation practically non-existent, we are still seeing health costs overall running at an 8 per cent increase and more every year. There is no way that in a first-world country the government could deny to Australians drugs that save lives or make living bearable because they cost too much. It is a big ask to put to the medical profession to ease...

Concerns over exaggerated health claims prompt FDA hearing on effects of CBD products  CNN

Cannabis-related products have flooded the market, making health claims about pain relief, immune function and anxiety and depression. But the US Food and Drug Administration says there is little known about how effective they are. On Friday, the FDA held its first hearing to assess the safety and efficacy of CBD products. In opening the hearing Dr. Ned Sharpless, acting commissioner of the FDA, said despite the widespread use of such products "critical questions remain about the safety" of these items. Products touting CBD and THC -- two of the active ingredients in cannabis -- can be foun...
