This document, waiting for and Assessing health and wellbeing Care expertise, is the 1st document from the STG fee on wellbeing and fitness Care know-how. The STG (Stuurgroep Toekomstscenario's Gezondheidzorg) used to be verified in 1983 as an self sustaining advisory workforce to the nation Secretary for Welfare, Public well-being, and Cultural Affairs (WVC) to help in long-range overall healthiness making plans efforts. to date, STG commissions have tested heart problems, melanoma, getting older, and existence types as problems with value to the wellbeing and fitness of the Dutch inhabitants sooner or later. evidently, future health care expertise is of significant obstacle to the govt. at the one hand, expertise is without doubt one of the significant instruments to advertise a fit inhabitants. nevertheless, the prices of health and wellbeing care were emerging at an alarming price in recent times. It was once those evidence, besides the social effects of yes applied sciences equivalent to genetic screening, that led the STG to set up the fee on health Care know-how in 1985. the eu workplace of the area future health association (EURO) cosponsored the venture. The future health Council (Gezondheidsraad) agreed to cooperate with the venture by way of furnishing house and highbrow and logistical aid. The objective of the Commission's paintings is to enhance enough details on destiny technological advancements in overall healthiness and wellbeing and fitness care to help making plans for his or her outcomes. next stories will provide extra element on overall healthiness care applied sciences and may offer in-depth exams on a number of particular technological areas.

Sample text

This is a speculative type of assessment that is concerned primarily with social effects of the technology. In this project, seven technological areas were examined prospectively: neurosciences, lasers, vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, digitalization of medical imaging, home care technologies, and genetic screening. 2. Assessments for efficacy and safety early in the life cycle. At present, only drugs and biologics are systematically examined in this way. Many technologies come into widespread use without such assessments.

These considerations playa role in the recent trend towards a growth of alternative systems of care and the growth of self-care. Technological change in health as a whole, but also some specific technologies, are linked with profound social and ethical implications (106;170). The most discussed case is probably the definition of death, with acceptance of brain death as the criterion. The contraceptive pill, and its association with emancipation of women and the sexual revolution, is another example.

In other cases, only a few studies to demonstrate efficacy and safety might be necessary. The number and type of studies would be determined by the importance of the technological decisions to be made and by the resources available for assessment. Such assessments should be done without preconceptions. The technology might be encouraged; the assessment might show that it is valuable enough to be diffused very rapidly. The technology might be discouraged. Or it might be left alone to diffuse without active policy intervention.
