WMA advises physicians about working in the United Arab Emirates
COA
The World Medical Association will alert all physicians about the risks of working in the United Arab Emirates, following the case of Professor Cyril Karabus, the retired paediatric oncologist, who remains on bail in the UAE despite being absolved of manslaughter charges against him.

At their Council meeting in Bali, WMA delegates expressed their extreme concern that Prof. Karabus, who was arrested in August last year in relation to the death of a child under his care in the UAE in 2002, is awaiting a further court hearing next week.

They passed a resolution saying that Prof. Karabus is believed to have been treated in a manner "which fails to meet international fair trial standards and he should be allowed to return home immediately."

The meeting also decided that in the light of this experience, the WMA will publish an advisory notice in the World Medical Journal and on the WMA web site advising doctors thinking of working in the UAE to note the working conditions and the legal risks of employment there.

Digital hospitals put control in patients' hands
CBC News
From the moment patients enter the new Humber River Hospital, slated to open in Toronto in 2015, they will have the power to change the room temperature, control the lighting, video chat with their nurse and read their medical charts on a bedside monitor. "The control of their environment and the participation in their care" will be the biggest changes for a patient entering the fully digital, 656-bed hospital, said Barb Collins, Humber River's chief operating officer and lead of the redevelopment project.

Les infirmières veulent faire des prescriptions
Radio-Canada
L'Ordre des infirmières du Québec propose une solution visant à améliorer l'accès aux soins de santé qui, à son avis, ne coûterait pas un sou et serait simple à implanter, mais qui risque de se heurter à la résistance des médecins qui pourraient y voir une intrusion dans leur chasse gardée. L'Ordre demande que ses membres puissent prescrire certaines analyses de laboratoire, des radiographies et d'autres tests, ainsi que certains médicaments à caractère préventif, tels des contraceptifs ou des aides à la cessation tabagique, ou des traitements pour des troubles mineurs.
