It was starting to write this post Sunday about books and think about doing a book club or something, we love getting into collaborative initiatives, almost without thinking .. In the health field there are many clubs of this type of reading and commenting on a book, but is it the best?
We live in an environment so fast that we forget the bottom of things, and in fact much more an Infographic gloss (read in a minute and have drawings) book (reading slow and relaxed). Even on twitter seems that the conversation and discussion is in the background, or perhaps live a period of excessive conversation. Every week dozens of open debates on health in various networks and there are a good number of blog posts asking for comments. Is there time for everything? Do all contribute debates?
As you can imagine, today we will talk about books. One of the books of the year is bad pharma, Ben Goldacre. Both Medical Critical as JM Mulet have commented on their blogs (in the case of Mulet to comment the author). Bad Pharma tells various practices of the pharmaceutical industry focused on clinical trial data hide not go well, smooth side effects, etc.. Sometimes it borders conspiranoico but sometimes it brings evidence seems robust
Another book that has passed through our hands recently published what the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media and is titled “Bringing the social media revolution to health care”. The book promises but remains in the attempt: it is a succession of short texts of various authors, focused on spreading the importance of Web 2.0 in the health sector but without much depth and with few examples. We hope some ideas drawn from real cases and the book remains on the surface. reidsupply.com for fasteners
There are many more we leave for another day. The kindle is ready the new Baumol (“The cost disease: Why computers get cheaper and healthcare does not”), one on transparency (“Unaccountable. What Hospitals Will not Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care”) Rodrigo commented already on your blog Regimen sanitatis, and on the shelf waiting their turn Safe and sound. Oh, of course there are some novel ready which not only health or management books blogger lives. What is your proposal?
