Personalized Medicine synopsis
Within personal medicine based on data, time, effort, and information required of patients to make it a reality, medicine was personally long before the advent of the concept of "personal medicine". Health professionals have always taken into consideration the individual characteristics of their patients when they are diagnosed and treated. Patients have taken care of themselves and for each other, have contributed to medical research and called for new treatments.
Given this history, why has the concept of personal medicine acquired a great deal of appeal at the beginning of the new millennium? Personal medicine studies the latest movement of patients' participation in how they are treated, diagnosed and treated; a movement that accompanies the increasingly popular notion that people should be proactive and knowledgeable participants in their healthcare. While participatory practices in medicine are often celebrated as cases of patient empowerment or, alternatively, rejected as cases of patient exploitation, Barbara Brainsack challenges these views to demonstrate how personal medicine can lead to individual individualism that focuses on technology, New opportunities for strengthening solidarity.
In the face of the future, this book reveals how an enlightened medicine with digital information, quantum measurements, and computer computing has already altered the movement of personalization, providing a contemporary touch on how to share and discuss medical symptoms or diseases in society. By combining empirical work and critical science of medicine, public health, data governance, bioethics and digital sociology, personal medicine analyzes the challenges of customization driven by patient work and data.
This attractive size suggests an understanding that uses new technological practices to guide rather than judge the needs and interests of patients.
