Say Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction with Tadalafil

Erectile dysfunction, abbreviated ED, and otherwise known as impotence in men, is the failure of a man to obtain and maintain an erection which is direly needed for engaging in sexual intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that is very common in much older men.  It has been estimated that about half of all men who are within the bracket age of 40 to 70 may have ED at a certain degree.  Depending on the circumstances and on the individual himself, erectile dysfunction can also affect those who are younger, even if they are just around the age of 25 or more.

Why does ED Occur in some Men?  Erectile dysfunction causes actually vary, and they can be physically related or psychologically related.  Physical causes of ED may include hormonal issues, surgery or injury, tightening of the blood vessels that lead towards the penis which is usually linked to high cholesterol, hypertension, or diabetes.  Psychological (mental) causes of ED may include depression, anxiety or problems with relationships.

What do the CMA's members want?

Yesterday's CMA Members' Hour was closed to media so Canadian Medicine can't provide you with any special insight about the debates on following list of topics that the CMA says were discussed, but here's the list nonetheless:

  • the financial deficit at CMAJ
  • doctors who lose their medical association benefits because they move to a new jurisdiction
  • the need to seek patient involvement and support when the CMA is seeking changes within the health care system, perhaps via a patient advisory board
  • the development of a pension plan for physicians
  • the lack of a remuneration for physicians who take on teaching duties
  • steps the CMA is taking to help physicians use electronic medical records
  • the need for the CMA to continue promoting physician health.
What Canadian Medicine can assure you of is that none of these topics are going to disappear in coming years, and will likely be revisited today during General Council motions or in coming years.

    "Span of control" :

    Moses had thousands to "govern". He placed 10 over 10....and he only ever had to confer with 10.

    "Associations" are doing this " in reverse"( thousands of bodies with one speaking head)

    Most "associations" do not understand the looseness of the term/function "association".

    It is only a "governance" group (for the sake of many) to announce guidelines and apply membership standards which validate said membership with the user client /payor.
    All other internal activity intent on "improving" membership status outside the group needs to be clearly defined.

    According to the topics outlined for discussion it appears to want a larger "governance" role with it's own members.
    If that is the case and it intends to have an advisory board it better do two things.
    1. develop a master plan that embraces matrix grouping for it's organizational structure. This way certain types of administration can be ad hoc.
    2. place the appropriate advisory function "horizontally" ( not vertically)at the end of each project line ( because in some discussion items on the list "para" groups linked to the association TMT need to be positioned with guidance.
    Some of them won't be cheap.
