Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Medizin und Gesundheit, notice: 1,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, a hundred and five Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der Sozialstaat ist gegenwärtig in vielerlei Hinsicht ein Thema hitziger Debatten. Ob es nun um die Verarmung durch Hartz IV geht, die soziale Filterfunktion von Studiengebühren oder die Reform des Gesundheitssystems , stets vermag der Umbau staatlicher Sicherungssysteme ein erhebliches Kritikpotential zu aktivieren (vgl. Manske 2005, Butterwegge 2005/2007, Dingeldey/Gottschall 2001). Auffällig sind dabei vor allem zwei Gesichtspunkte: Zum einen geht es um den Zwang zur Kostenreduktion in nahezu allen Bereichen staatlicher Sozialleistungen, zum anderen um die damit verknüpfte, unter dem Label des Neoliberalismus firmierende Forderung nach vermehrter Selbstverantwortung und Leistungsbereitschaft (vgl. Nolte 2006, Dingeldey 2006). So formulierte Edmund Stoiber im Jahr 2003 auf dem Kongress der Akademien für Gesundheit, Ernährung und Verbraucherschutz: "Um Gesundheitsgefahren und künftigen Kostenbelastungen effektiver begegnen zu können, muss die Bereitschaft des Einzelnen gestärkt werden, selbst mehr Verantwortung für seine Gesundheit zu übernehmen" (zitiert nach Klinik Heute AG).
Besonders das Gesundheitssystem ist seit mehreren Jahrzehnten unter dem Schlagwort der „Kostenexplosion“ Gegenstand diverser wirtschaftlicher Konsolidierungsversuche. Deutlich geworden ist dies beispielsweise an der Krise der Krankenhäuser und den daraus resultierenden Versuchen eben jener, dem challenge knapper Ressourcen mit aus der Wirtschaft entlehnten Managementkonzepten beizukommen (vgl. Bauch 1996, Simon 2001) sowie den wirtschaftlichen Horrorszenarien, die als Folge der Ausbreitung chronischer Krankheiten zu zeichnen gepflegt werden (vgl. Penzel 2005, Lindner 2003).

  • Accumulate wisdom and event for bettering present methodologies

    Using a number of members from either the medical and engineering aspects of the fields pointed out above, this e-book stands aside by means of emphasizing a necessity for the customarily missing process that integrates those both very important elements.

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Medizin - Gesundheitswesen, Public future health, word: 1,5, Deutsche Hochschule für Prävention und Gesundheitsmanagement GmbH, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Heutzutage weisen Rückenschmerzen und Wirbelsäulenerkrankungen nicht nur eine epidemiologische und medizinische, sondern auch eine gesundheitsökonomische Bedeutung auf (Robert-Koch-Institut, 2012, S. 7). Aufgrund des Rückenleidens kommt es bei den Deutschen zu einer vermehrten Inanspruchnahme des medizinischen Versorgungssystems, zu einer höheren Arbeitsunfähigkeit und zu einer früheren Rente, wegen teilweiser oder sogar voller Erwerbsminderung (Robert-Koch-Institut, 2012, S. 7). So lag 2010 das Muskel-Skelett-System mit 37 % auf Platz 1 der medizinischen Rehabilitation bei Erwachsenen (Techniker Krankenkasse, 2012 S.98). Nicht nur das Muskel-Skelett-System, sondern auch die Erkrankungen mit den längsten Arbeitsunfähigkeitszeiten bei den AOK- Pflichmitgliedern liegen mit Rückenschmerzen im Jahr 2008 mit 14,2 Millionen Arbeitsunfähigkeitstagen (AU-Tage) auf Platz 1, darunter 5,0 Millionen Frauen und 9,2 Millionen Männer (Wissenschaftliches Institut der AOK, 2011). Daneben sind bei Frühberentungen, die Krankheiten, die das Muskel-Skelett-System betreffen, mit knapp 24.000 Rentenzugängen, auf Platz 2 (Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund, 2012).
    Im Jahr 2008 führte Ingo Froböse eine der größten Rückenstudien durch. Die Ergebnisse zeigten, dass die häufigsten Rückenschmerzen zwischen dem forty. und forty nine. Lebensjahr gefolgt von der Altersklasse 30 bis 39 Jahre auftreten. Diese zwei Lebensphasen weisen bei den meisten Menschen eine hohe berufliche oder familiäre Belastung auf. Sogar eighty, eight % hatten im Zeitraum der Befragung akute Rückenschmerzen. Nach den Angaben der Probanden dauerte die Länge der Rückenschmerzepisoden im Durchschnitt 5,88 Wochen. Von den etwa 60.000 Befragten bezeichneten 76,2 % sich selbst als inaktiv und würden nix aktives für ihre Rückengesundheit tun (Froböse, 2008). Weiter fanden Latza, U., Kohlmann, T., Deck, R. & Raspe, H. (2000, S. 1395) heraus, dass das Risiko für schwere Rückenschmerzen bei Personen mit Hauptschulabschluss sogar etwa dreimal höher ist, als im Vergleich zu Personen mit Abitur. Daraus resultiert, dass Personen, die einen niedrigen Bildungsstatus haben, viel häufiger an Rückenschmerzen leiden, als im Vergleich zu Personen mit einem hohen Bildungsstatus. Tabelle 1 zeigt die wahrscheinlichen und unwahrscheinlichen Risikofaktoren für unspezifische Rückenschmerzen bei Erwachsenen auf:
