Why Use Fluconazole Treatment

One of the nastiest types of infection is fungal infection.  Although they are more likely to grow on the skin, there are more serious ones though that develops in the respiratory system and infect not just the lungs, but also the blood and other parts of the body’s internal structure.  When you develop a fungal infection, it is vital that you treat the infection as soon as possible to prevent further growth, development, and spread of the infection.  Failure to do so may mean longer and costlier treatment.  Fluconazole treatment is needed for treating fungal infection.  Fluconazole treatment is an antifungal medication treatment that you take orally.

Most antifungals are applied on the skin directly to where the infection has developed.  However, if the infection has buried further or deeper in to the skin, or the infection has developed inside of the body, such topical type of antifungal will not work on such.  For cases like this, fluconazole treatment is necessary as fluconazole treatment comes in pill form which you take orally.  The treatment process in using fluconazole treatment is the purging of the infection from the inside of your body.  This effectively gets rid of the infection from your system.

For antifungal fluconazole treatment, it is necessary that you use fluconazole treatment for a course of several days.  The number of days you need to use fluconazole treatment depends on the type of infection that you have developed and the severity that it has.  Course treatment is necessary in completely getting rid of an infection from the body.  This is the very reason why doctors prescribe patients with several days of use of fluconazole treatment when they have a fungal infection.  By completing the course of fluconazole treatment, you will be able to completely purge the fungal infection out of the body.

Vacation denied: 29% of MDs can't find locums

The Canadian Medical Association has reported some new numbers on locum use from the 2007 National Physician Survey.

According to the survey, 29% of doctors wanted to get a locum to come in and cover their practices for a time but were unable to find someone willing to do so. Unsurprisingly, therefore, nearly half of physicians said they were dissatisfied with the availability of locums.

"As a profession we should be worried about that," said CMA president Dr Robert Ouellet.

One solution, proposed by the CMA in 2003 but still not achieved, is to create a licence to practise for locums that would enable them to move from province to province without regulatory hassles.

You can read the CMA's full release here.

Want to know where to look to try to track down one of those elusive locums? Earlier this year Parkhurst Exchange published an article I wrote called "Help! I can't find a locum!" that might give you some ideas.

    If you want to "catch" something you have to have "bait".

    Bait is not describing what fantastic fishing equipment you have.....

    Bait is something the "catch" is already hunting for......

    Q-What are "locums" hunting for?

    All of the ones I have ever met had a " personal" reason for their choice:

    +relocation scan (keenest)
    +money ( poorest patient-centred performers )
    +access to "new" experience (casual)

    I think some thought should be given to adding some "evaluation" power to the experience that enhances their professional status

    let's forecast:
    ( which is what "proactive" really means in a strategic plan )
    A new thrust for enhancing their exposure to" collaborative practice"......

    ...... versus "family practice" placement alone

    Q- will this be the next funded model?

    (excerpt from an evaluation framework)

    'new partnerships, structures, curricula, communications, and resources are needed to support interprofessional education and practice'

    Now all we have to do is two things:

    1.find out how to get the bait " on a hook"

    2.get the "catch" to recognize the "bait".....
