For All Seasons

Fall is in the air, and it smells of new and exiting documentaries!

Of all seasons I like the fall the best. It has not only to do with the change in the air and the crispness of the morning sky. It has also to do with the beginning of a new cycle at the Ida Institute. Our new topic for the up-coming seminar series is drafted, the seminar series faculty of subject matter experts is nearly formed, and for me the endeavor of making a new fresh series of ethnographic films starts.

It is just as exciting every time

This time is a bit different though, since I do not have my usual Ida co-anthropologist assisting me with the interviews. That is a challenge, but an exciting one because this time I will use “local” ethnographic interviewers.

So where am I right now?

Well, I am part of the team creating the framework of the new topic. Every new topic – I can only reveal that it has to do with patient-centered care - is being put together by creating an understanding of the dilemmas and challenges it poses.

Ethnographic documentary films are essential

We have found out that the ethnographic documentary films are essential in understanding the topics we explore. The reflective nature of the Ida Institute's seminar series helps us pose important questions and identify needs that might not yet been expressed. To be able to pose these questions it is imperative that the films mirror real clinical situations with real audiologists and patients.

Observations of the real world turned into tangible tools

Firsthand understanding and real world experiences provide us with informed insights that are able to transform experiences into a tangible tool format. The new seminar series will help us through that innovative co-creative process. And if the process goes as planned, we will be able to exchange your experiences to a new tool.

But, before we get there, a lot of planning has to be done. This is for sure a collaborative endeavor and I am already very much indebted to extremely helpful colleagues in Tampa, Florida, and the United Kingdom.

Stay tuned for new films

As you might sense, I am looking very much forward to go on this year’s fieldwork with my camera. During the next months I will frequently give you insights to how my work is progressing. And of course I will bring you snippets’ of film footage as well.

  3. Staying with Herpes is as easy as you think,but getting the cured seems confusing. I'm so happy because I'm free now from Herpes. I was very unhappy after the checkup and was diagnosed HSV 2 of which I know fully well I can't be cured with the Antibiotics, he prescribed for me the acyclovir(Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), andvalacyclovir (Valtrex). These are all taken in pill form. Severe cases may be treated with the intravenous I refuse to try it and went to another clinic for test and it still shows positive. I told the doctor about it and he said it's only by miracle and the prescribed he knows can't cure the virus by only keep fighting so it doesn't replenish always. I wasn't comfortable since I needed the cure.
    I was in a very sad moon,then I came back in two weeks and still shows the same. I tell you,does who knows understand what I'm saying.
    I'm saying this now because my believe leads me to understand that There's a CURE for HERPES.
    Of All English medicine you should know God gives us power over all living and non living creatures, don't feel bad now because I know being an Herpes patient for 3 years must have lost hope ,you can still get cure to CANCER, HPV,DIABETES, LOW SPARM COUNT,IRREGULAR OR PAINFUL MENSTRUATION, AND LOSTS HE WILL SHOW YOU AND YOU WILL FEEL THE WAY I DO NOW
    IT'S ALL I CAN DO TO HELP IF YOU LOVE TO KNOW

  5. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Afrid Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
