Abstract: The last few years have seen a rapid growth in sociological research on health movements. This developing field of study brings together insights from medical sociology, sociology of science, and social movements to understand the social processes of contestation over health and illness concerns. While providing insights related to authority and expertise, health movements research tends to focus on national organizations, and has yet to consider how issues become organized at an international or global level. In this conference paper, I seek to advance health movements research through the case of international patient safety advocacy conducted by the World Health Organization’s World Alliance for Patient Safety. With the goal of promoting patient safety globally, the Alliance has set forth a variety of campaigns that ultimately seek international safety standardization in healthcare, while at the same time attempting to include the patient perspective in the development of standards. It is through this dual process of international standardization and patient inclusion that the World Alliance makes patient safety global, and can thus be an example of a global health movement.

Abstract: Open-ended interviews explore patients’ perceptions of the original hospice mission’s wholistic care approach. Responses reflected that patients are unaware of all the services offered through hospice. Using relational dialectics as an interpretive lens, patients’ nonreceipt of comprehensive care and struggle between openness and closedness, autonomy and connectedness, and uncertainty and certainty discourses, are demonstrated as they attempt to create and maintain interdependence with IDTs and social support.

Abstract: The deterioration of medic-patient relation in China raises the question about its impact on patients’ adherence to medical instructions. This study focuses on how the quantity and quality of medic-patient communication influences their relationship, and how the relationship at individual level, institution level and society level influences patients’ medication adherence. The results of a survey (N=421) show that consulting time is positively associated with patients’ relationship with individual doctors and the whole medical system, as well as their satisfaction with hospital. Unpleasant experiences such as bribing the doctors or having disputes with medical workers, are negatively associated with the medic-patient relationship in a hospital and the whole society. The doctor-patient relationship plays a fundamental role in affecting patients’ unconditional adherence. Satisfaction with hospital is positively linked with conditional adherence.

Abstract: In this paper we engage the study of medication safety, as a point in case in discussing the interstices between patient safety, design and STS. The backdrop of the paper is an ethnographically informed inquiry into medication practices involving toxic drug compounds with a high focus on patient safety, which are also potentially harmful to personnel through accidental exposure during preparation and dispensing the drugs. A patient safety focus solely on ‘the proper medicine, in the proper dosage, at the proper time, and to the proper patient’ neither encompasses the collective and distributed character of what heterogeneous interlinkages and tensions medicating patients’ entails, nor of doing so ‘safely’. A query into safety ‘for and by whom’, ‘where and when’, and ‘how’, opens up for a diverse array of issues which impinge upon, and potentially displace, patient safety as an isolated event and focus, towards issues of domestication, across multiple settings, i.e. within as well as beyond the confines of the concrete setting of the medication practice.

Through an examination of the design, procurement and use-practices of a particular ‘single-use’ medication dispensing device in the preparation and administration of cancer drugs and antibiotics, the paper addresses how heterogeneous issues feed into, and qualify the articulation of medication safety in situ. Our paper aims, hereby, to contribute to the discussion of medical practice through which to scope and frame (patient) safety as part and parcel of issues such as knowledge, accountability and repertoires of practice, and thus suggest alternative strategies for enhancing patient safety.

Abstract: People with chronic health conditions face a wide range of complex and confusing choices on what are the best evidence-based treatments for them.Although traditional medical research has made great strides in improving health care, it is often done without the input of people affected by a particular condition or the people who care for them. In addition, representation by racial and ethnic minorities in this research is usually lacking. The Chicago Area Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Network (CAPriCORN) is a Chicago-wide collaboration between more than 30 hospitals, research and voluntary health organizations, focusing on patient centered comparative effectiveness research.In this session, representatives from CAPriCORN’s PCAC will teach session participants about the process of recruitment and training members of the PCAC, a framework for proposal review and prioritization and preliminary plans for the tailored dissemination of research findings to community audiences.
