PTSD and TBI Programs for Veterans and Civilians

Bradly Lecture Post-Combat PTSD
Bradly Lecture Post-Combat PTSD

IMCRA is changing the focus of its Community Cyberspace program to concentrate exclusively on the scourge of post-traumatic mental disorders and the devastaing effect they have on daily life.

The unfortunate reality of 2014 is that we live in parlous times. Multiple small wars are now raging all over the globe. Violence by and against civilians is epidemic in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, the USA and elsewhere. Climate change has increased the incidence of dangerous weather conditions, and hurricanes and tornadoes are frighteningly more frequent. Soldiers, firemen and peace officers return from duty psychologically crushed by the horrors they have seen and participated in. Innocent citizens live shattered lives in the shadow of great natural and man-made catastrophes. 

IMCRA has recently joined forces with a number of organizations, most recently the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (in process), to organize a series of interactive educational modules on the identification and long-term treatment of multiple post-traumatic mental disorders under the umbrella term PTSD.

These modules have been recorded by world-renowned experts in PTSD, TBI, and long-term trauma care. They are 100% interactive so both medical professionals and lay caregivers can access the system freely via an internet portal as well as by smartphone and mobile systems.

In August and September we are upgrading our delivery system to load more modules Among the advantages of the IMCRA system; it provides multi-level resources in the native language of the impacted populations and their caregivers, is anonymously accessed and used, allows download of further diagnostic and reference materials and provides a sequential pathway for psychological and psychosocial intervention at the level of the patient, family, physician and healthcare system.  

Your kind help will speed this process and help in recruiting more medical experts.

IMCRA Joins UNFPA Every Woman Every Child Program

Dr. Bac - IMCRA Perinatal Program in Vietnam
Dr. Bac - IMCRA Perinatal Program in Vietnam

Dear Friends,

In late July of this year IMCRA was contacted by representatives of the United Nations Foundation with an invitation to join the Every Woman Every Child initiative.  This program is spearheaded by the UN's Secretary General Mr. Ban-Ki Moon and aims to mobilize and intensify global action to improve the health of woman and children around the world.

Since IMCRA has a particular and growing focus on early childhood and perinatal health in China, Vietnam and Indonesia we were selected to expand our offerings to address particular medical issues impacting pregnancy, childbirth and the the first year or two afterward.

Among the issues determined by the United Nations to be seriously in need of remediation are: a) poor clinical practice by doctors seeing pregnant women, b) cultural and personal behaviors deleterious to successful childbirth and child rearing such as smoking, poor diet and overwork, c) use of commercial formulas rather than breastfeeding.

IMCRA is committed to providing healthcare workers with updated, native-language expert advice on best clinical practice for pregnant women, recently-delivered women, and their young children.   Although joining the UNFPA team officially on 25 September improves our reach and effectiveness, it is your financial help that will enable us to both revamp our website appropriately and successfully recruit and utilize expert faculty to deliver the messages that are so badly needed globally. 

Your help in this very important work with even a small donation will go far.

Sincerely,

George and the IMCRA Team

spearheaded by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, to mobilize and intensify global action to improve the health of women and children around the world. - See more at: http://www.everywomaneverychild.org/#sthash.EfmCuX2k.dpuf

Help Guarantee Advanced Medical Access - The New IMCRA App

Bac Ha Market, Vietnam
Bac Ha Market, Vietnam

IMCRA is launching an important new technology and we need your help to make it successful!   Worldwide, the immediate aftermath of disaster most often includes disrupted communications.   This can make access to online medical resources via laptop or desktop difficult to impossible even with good WiFi signal availability.  Further, in remote locations with limited wired or WiFi connections the celphone is often the only tool available for electronic communications in all cases.

To meet the need for universal accessibility to free medical resources our Community Cyberspace program is now pioneering a system for access to the IMCRA interactive medical systems via handheld smartphones including Android and i-Phone.  This program, under Dr. Noma's direction, will give system users access to IMCRA's expert faculty via an interactive hand-held application which will continue to operate within a 30 mile radius of any functioning celphone tower.

As shown in the figures below we are extending access to this system to patients as well as to caregivers.   Finally, in emergency situations where handheld access may not permit digital manipulation of a screen or keyboard we are including multi-language voice-recognition software to enable users to navigate screens and access the desired modules with a minimum of manipulation.  The programming and implementation expenses for this are not insignificant so every contribution to these efforts will have a very real and positive impact on many lives.  Thanks!
