bad arguments

Re: Doctors face compulsory system to declare gifts and hospitality from drug companies

“Los hechos, los hechos,…”

[ . . . ] “El poder de afrontar hechos incómodos”, así definía Christopher Hitchens el heroísmo de George Orwell. En los debates sobre nuestro sistema de salud, los hechos incómodos no son enfrentados. Más bien, son omitidos deliberadamente. Las discusiones parecen ocurrir en un vacío empírico. Los argumentos son reemplazados por estribillos gastados. Los hechos sustituidos por opiniones rotundas.” [ . . . ] — Alejandro Gaviria

No creo que nadie pueda cerrar el sitio de práctica a los estudiantes de la Universidad del Valle.

Mucho menos creo que los estudiantes y profesores se dejen sacar de allí tan fácil…

La enfermedad siempre existirá entre nosotros (siempre habrán pacientes – así no queramos serlo!).

Y siempre existirán los hospitales, con profesores y médicos en formación.

Ahora, en cuanto al Hospital Psiquiátrico Valle (aka San Isidro) y la Unidad de Salud Mental del HUV:

“Imagine, [Kriezler] said, that you enter a large, somewhat crumbling hall that echoes with the sounds of people mumbling and talking repetitively to themselves. All around you these people fall into prostrate positions, some of them weeping. Where are you? Sara’s answer was immediate: in an asylum. Perhaps, Kreizler answered, but you could also be in a church. In the one place the behavior would be considered mad; in the other, not only sane, but as respectable as any human activity can be.”
Caleb Carr, The Alienist

What about the people who work in the asylums?

Some Remedial Suggestions for Psychiatry

Here are my suggestions for any psychiatrist who is genuinely concerned about the stigmatization of his/her profession:

      • Repudiate the spurious medicalization of non-medical problems;
      • Acknowledge the destructive and disempowering nature of the “treatments”;
      • Apologize to all concerned;
      • Find honest work.

No amount of mental gymnastics or PR can address psychiatry’s fundamental flaws.
