News and information from the Judge Ben C. Green Law Library
Prevention Magazine recognized the Case Western Reserve University School of Engineering for having developed one of "The 10 Most Incredible Medical Breakthroughs of 2018" in their December 6, 2018 issue.


Ignoring patient questions and sensitivities may come at a high price.

On October 23, 2018,, a popular website for those interested in law-medicine developments, ran an article entitled, "An MD/Attorney Reveals: 5 Top Reasons Patients Sue Doctors," by Lee S. Goldsmith, MD, LLB.  Goldsmith's New York City law firm has represented both plaintiffs and defendants for over 30 years. Referrals to Goldsmith's law firm average over 40 per month from those who wish to initiate a lawsuit.  However, of those 40 potential malpractice suits, there may be only one viable case.    
In her Journal of Community Practice article, Notes from the Field: Learning Cultural Humility Through Critical Incidents and Central Challenges in Community-Based Participatory Research, Prof. Laurie Ross states, "Experiential forms of teaching and learning, including service learning and community-based research, can potentially be transformative for both students and communities."  Prof. Ross states that cultural humility has three foci: knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Using Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) as a framework, community development professionals have identified Cultural Humility as a subset of competence that challenges the practitioners' beliefs and attitudes about people who are different.  Cultural humility results from developing forms of knowledge about:

1.  Health Disparities:  awareness of the scope the ways in which health disparities are the result of social, political and economic dynamics that have resulted in beliefs and behaviors within communities;

2.  Attitudes and Behaviors:  Practitioners' need to be aware of their own subconscious and conscious bias and stereotyping;

3.  Culturally Humble Skills:  These include nonauthoritarian communication, cross-cultural communication fluidity and the ability to engage in participatory decision-making with community partners.

In its March 2018 newsletter, The Center for Community Solutions raised concerns about a proposed waiver that "largely waives employment and community engagement requirements in 26 overwhelmingly white Ohio counties because of their high unemployment rates [while failing] to exempt other communities with unemployment rates equally high or higher."
