Abstract 

The hospital in Pitigliano (Tuscany) is the first hospital in Italy to put into practice a model of Integrated Medicine. This clinical setting caters for the use of complementary medicine (homeopathy and acupuncture (針灸 zhēn jiǔ)) alongside orthodox therapies (conventional medicine). The therapeutic model implicates doctors who are experts in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM; 補充與替代醫學 bǔ chōng yǔ tì dài yī xué) and the rest of the hospital personnel working together as equals. This contribution explains the difficulties, critical aspects and potential of this innovative setting.

L’esordio del concetto di stress

Alcmeone (500 a.C.) era un pitagorico, ragionava in termini di armonia, di equilibrio, di “isonomia”, delle forze che consentono la vita.

Una variazione, un predominio di un elemento su un altro, una “monarchia”, come scrive, danno origine a disarmonia, a malattia.

La salute, in questo modello, è il ripristino dell’equilibrio.

ABSTRACT [The hospital in Pitigliano (Tuscany) is the first hospital in Italy to put into practice a model of Integrated Medicine. This clinical setting caters for the use of complementary medicine (homeopathy and acupuncture (針灸 zhen ji ǔ)) alongside orthodox therapies (conventional medicine). The therapeutic model implicates doctors who are experts in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM; 補充與替代醫學 bǔ chong y ǔ tì dcontribution explains the difficulties, critical aspects and potential of this innovative setting. The clinical setting for Integrated Medicine was evaluated in part through observation and in part through the analysis of approval questionnaires. The writers of the questionnaires were the orthodo medical personnel and the hospital patients.

The project is still evolving today in spite of the initial partial contrariety of some doctors in the hospital and some external doctors in the area. However, it can already be considered a positive expe-rience, as confirmed by the high approval gained from many health workers and most of the hospital patients. Moreover, the follow-up carried out through specific surgeries dedicated to CAM is extremely positive.

Up to now 532 inpatients suffering from acute illnesses, relapse of a chronic illness or neurological or orthopaedic rehabilitation following strokes, brain haemorrhage, neurological illness or limb prosthesis operations have been treated. This work has tried to illustrate the innovative and positive experience for the Italian public health authorities so that it may also be useful to anyone who would like to promote similar initiatives within its public health Institution.

Cronic Care Model e integrazione delle cure, l'efficacia delle cure integrate in oncologia.

Una CAM è medicina “complementare” quando sia utilizzata in maniera aggiuntiva a quella classica come elemento di supporto al fine di controllare i sintomi e produrre il benessere ai fini del trattamento globale del paziente.
Una medicina è “alternativa ” quando si offre al posto di quella classica come opzione terapeutica praticabile. Quest’ultima scelta può risultare particolarmente problematica nei pazienti affetti da cancro perché potrebbe causare un ritardo nell’utilizzo delle cure appropriate.
