The growth and diversity of careers and career pathways within medicine and health care can be confusing, yet it reflects the evolution of modern medicine which relies upon a myriad of different specialists each able to contribute their own particular skills to the care and wellbeing of the patient or client. Careers within the NHS are many and varied, with opportunities to train not only as nurses and doctors but also as dieticians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists. These are only a portion of the huge number of careers that are available to suit all tastes and abilities whether it is in medicine or support and technical staff there is something for everyone who is interested in health care. The use of rehabilitation in order to effect recovery and rebuild lives in a way that is meaningful to the client is foremost on the agenda for every therapist. But it also offers tremendous scope to the would-be practitioner, whether their interest lies in physical medicine or mental health, or a mixture of both. Occupational therapists for example, work in all sectors of the National Health Service including acute admission units; short and long stay units and community roles. Occupational therapy attracts mature students who may have had diverse backgrounds before choosing to study. An interest in psychology and communication may well be an incentive to study speech therapy. Speech and language specialists work in private practice as well as the NHS. Their work is varied with clients who might involve a child who has a cleft palate in the morning and then an adult suffering from Parkinson´s disease in the afternoon. Nursing and midwifery have always offered a varied career path, with options to train further in health visiting or district nursing, research, and specializations within medicine and psychiatric nursing. 1.

John R. Brinkley (July 8, 1885-May 26, 1942) became nationally known as the ´´goat gland doctor´´ for his controversial medical practice that promised virility for his male patients. He was a pioneer in radio broadcasting and advertising, as he promoted his services to his large listening audience. Despite detractors and critics in the medical community thoroughly discrediting his methods, Brinkley operated clinics and hospitals in several states for two decades. When opposition from the organized medical community resulted in the revocation of his radio and medical licenses he turned to politics, with two failed runs for the governorship of Kansas. Brinkley´s rise to fame and fortune was as precipitous and was his eventual fall. At the height of his career, he had amassed millions of dollars, yet he died sick and nearly penniless as a result of a number of malpractice, wrongful death, and fraud suits brought against him. 1.

With the world becoming increasingly dependent on technology, it is not surprise to anyone that IT projects are literally coming out of the woodwork. If that is not a big enough pill to swallow, IT projects, regardless of their particular industry, fail at a higher rate than infrastructure projects. All of this means that the project manager´s role is crucial, and is even more crucial when it comes to healthcare IT projects. Healthcare is a big business and is only continuing to grow. Because of this, technology must adapt and transform to meet the needs of the public. Failed healthcare IT projects are nothing new. However, they surely are something that can be learned from. In every failure is a lesson that can be used for a future project - a lesson that can help to save, or better, someone else´s life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paula Slade.
