Use of mindfulness-based stress reduction for chronic low back pain

Among adults with chronic low back pain, both mindfulness-based stress reduction and cognitive behavioral therapy resulted in greater improvement in back pain and functional limitations when compared with usual care, according to a study appearing in the March 22/29 issue of JAMA.

Low back pain is a leading cause of disability in the United States. There is need for treatments with demonstrated effectiveness that are low risk and have potential for widespread availability. Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) focuses on increasing awareness and acceptance of moment-to-moment experiences including physical discomfort and difficult emotions. Only 1 large randomized clinical trial has evaluated MBSR for chronic low back pain, and that trial was limited to older adults.

Future of young people in hands of eHealth, says health leader

The chief executive of UK health and social care provider, Turning Point, ended his keynote address at UK e-Health Week this week with a warning to eHealth “not to fail the next generation” by failing to reach “those that need it the most”.

Lord Victor Adebowale, whose organisation represents 100,000 people across 230 locations in England and Wales, said that, to date, those people who needed health and social care the most “tended to get it the least”. And technology, he said, held a key.

Data Security and why we made ClinicJot HIPAA compliant

When we were designing the new version of ClinicJot as a cloud based system we were very conscious that the safety and security of your data had to be in the forefront of our development effort.

But we were faced with a problem. ClinicJot is available in virtually every country of the world, however there is no international convention governing the storage of medical/clinic data.

In the United Kingdom there is the Data Protection Act 1998, shortly to be replaced by the pan European EU General Data Protection Regulations, in Canada the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and in Australia the Privacy Act. They all adopt a similar approach to the safeguarding of data in its broadest form.

Welcome to new ClinicJot

We’ve created this new version of ClinicJot using not only the latest technology but, more importantly, the feed-back, help and advice from some of the alternative, complimentary and conventional practitioners who were users of the original ClinicJot app.

The technical work on the engine that drives ClinicJot was directed by Michael Anderson backed by his team at Appino. Both Jane and Mike are directors of Jotfiles Limited, the company behind ClinicJot.
