HST.939 Designing and Sustaining Technology Innovation for Global Health Practice (MIT) HST.939 Designing and Sustaining Technology Innovation for Global Health Practice (MIT)

Description

Innovation in global health practice requires leaders who are trained to think and act like entrepreneurs. Whether at a hospital bedside or in a remote village, global healthcare leaders must understand both the business of running a social venture as well as how to plan for and provide access to life saving medicines and essential health services. Each week, the course features a lecture and skills-based tutorial session led by industry, non-profit foundation, technology, and academic leaders to think outside the box in tackling and solving problems in innovation for global health practice through the rationale design of technology and service solutions. The lectures provide the foundation for faculty-mentored pilot project from MOH, students, or non-profit sponsors that may involve creat Innovation in global health practice requires leaders who are trained to think and act like entrepreneurs.

Description

Content Type:  Resource “Exercise is a complex behavior that is regulated by a complex system”. In this talk, Prof Noakes seeks to include the brain as a factor in exercise physiology. He starts with the classical teachings in exercise physiology and continues by looking at various models such as the A.V. Hill model and the peripheral model. According to Noakes, not enough people are looking at the bigger picture – that the body does not function in discrete and unconnected apartments. He argues that too much of exercise physiology concentrates on the body’s reflexive automatic response to stimuli of shutting down close to the point of collapse. The main point of his argument is that the brain is in Content Type:  Resource “Exercise is a complex behavior that is regulated by a complex system”.

Beyond the VO2 max: The role of self-belief in elite athletic performance Beyond the VO2 max: The role of self-belief in elite athletic performance

Description

Content Type:  Resource This lecture explores how success in sports ranging from extreme cold water swimming to World Cup rugby are linked by a common thread - the role of self-belief. In the past Prof. Tim Noakes was convinced that physiology could explain performance. After 38 years of studying the human body, he now believes that the mind, and the role of self-belief, are crucial factors in human athletic feats. In January 2008, Noakes presented this lecture entitled “Beyond the VO2 max: The role of self-belief in elite athletic performance” at Croke Park Stadium, Dublin. Authors: Timothy Noakes Institutions: University of Cape Town Content Type:  Resource This lecture explores how success in sports ranging from extreme cold water swimming to World Cup rugby are linked by a common thread - the role of self-belief.

Exercising advocacy: Some personal ideas and experiences Exercising advocacy: Some personal ideas and experiences

Description

Content Type:  Resource This video lecture can be used by self learners or as a supplement to sports science course material. This talk was delivered to UCT alumni in London at South Africa House on 10 October 2007 and recorded a few weeks later in Cape Town. It describes how the University influenced my early career and led me to study two of the important intellectual challenges of my life – exercise-associated hyponatraemia and the central governor model of exercise. It then discusses the role of science in assisting the rise of South African cricket under the coaching of Bob Woolmer and of South African ascent to winning the 2007 Rugby World Cup under Jake White. It ends with the story of UCT graduate Lewis Gordo Content Type:  Resource This video lecture can be used by self learners or as a supplement to sports science course material.

Health economics in the policy fray: insights from US healthcare reform

Description

Professor Richard G Frank, Margaret T Morris Professor of Health Economics, Harvard Medical School gives a lecture on health policy in the US. The lecture addresses the political and budgetary constraints within which policy choices about the design of US health reform were and are being made. The lecture contrasts the way in which economic thinking and analysis is used in the US relative to that used in the European healthcare context, and presents some concrete examples from the debate and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
