Before I go on my annual leave, I thought I'd drop a line. Last week I did my first shift in a little private hospital in my hometown. When I arrived on the ward, I called in at the Sister's office. As I headed towards her door, I realised I was the only nurse wearing a mask. I was still in my civilian clothes, and as I said, my mask was... Read more

I have lymphoma. Is that my problem or that of my physician? Or perhaps the problem of research and industry? It is indeed my problem and I need my physician badly. She can only do her work when good science is being done and when the healthcare industry provides her with the right treatments. There is a lot of work and cooperation that needs to happen,...

It’s 2022 and public health is undergoing an unprecedented digital transformation.

If you are in a business in the healthcare industry , you probably feel the pressure to provide or use technology that works... Read more

My dear readers, It is time for thoughts from the island again. It’s time for the nurse’s thoughts! I wanted to share with you all that, as a staff nurse, I still work on COVID-19 wards. I risked it and flew to the Canary Islands in March for sunshine and switching-off time. I needed the urge of summer like a sunflower. I thought in my ‘naïve’... Read more

When Inspire2Live organised its first Annual Congress in 2011, José Baselga was one of the speakers, and he opened his speech with the following statement: “We are not meant to be here for 1- or 2-months’ life extension. We can do better!” It was a powerful statement for patients and oncology researchers alike. For patients, because we all... Read more

Because the prevalence of NCSE among neurological patients can reach up to 60%, and because it becomes increasingly... Read more
