Details of 3 Pillar Self-Care
Our submission focuses on the reciprocal responsibilities of the individual and the community in health care; care of the body and the mind.
3. Opportunity: Which pillar of well-being, and which aspect of that particular pillar, are being addressed by the idea? In what way does it influence a pillar? What type of individual and community would benefit from the idea?
The idea that the individual's demonstration of efforts towards self-care should be reciprocated by the community's continued investment in the individual should benefit both the body and the mind of the individual.
If the efforts demonstrated by the individual result in improved health, in conjunction with the community's investment in the individual through medical services, then the community benefits by learning methods and practices which might benefit others in the community.
4. Innovation: Why is your idea unique, novel, and/or impactful? What will the future look like if we’re successful in bringing your idea to life? How does the proposed solution differ from existing solutions addressing human well-being?
Preexisting ideas of health advancements involved so level of cruelty to test subject.
The reprecussion were lack of trust in the medical system, and a whole army of test subjects who came to believe that the mission in existence was death itself.
I would reference the animal rights group PETA (also included in the movie 'Twelve Monkeys'); also experiments in torture by Stanley Milgram.
5. Action Plan: Please justify and briefly describe the major steps needed to make this idea a reality. Does the technology and understanding exist now? Is it likely to exist in the next 3-5 years?
1. The medical profession need to adopt 'Do No Harm' healthcare.
2. Testing of new pharmaceuticals must involve all relevant person's within the heal are system, not just a select few.
3. Healthcare workers need to be trained as equal participants in the medical system; each both members of the community, and consumers of healthcare services.
4. Social life must transition away from rules prohibiting interaction between any two or more people in a personal way for any reason, enhancing point 3 above.
5. We must recognize that the only two classes of people are those who wish to live, and those who wish to die; and to the latter we should make every compassionate effort towards life.
