Renowned Physician Interventional Cardiologist Endorses One Health Concept

 

The One Health Concept: How Multidisciplinary Training and Collaboration Leads to Major Advances in Health Care

A One Health endorsement message from Gary S. Roubin, BVSc. (Hons.), MB, BS., PhD, MD, FRACP, FACC, FAHA, FSCAI

Cardiovascular Associates of the Southeast Birmingham, Alabama

Please see http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/The%20One%20Health%20concept%20is%20a%20worldwide%20strategy%20for%20expanding%20interdisciplinary%20collaborations%20and%20communications%20in%20all%20aspects%20of%20health%20care%20for%20humans.pdf or https://goo.gl/cZ61UE.

 

“The One Health, One Medicine philosophy of multidisciplinary collaboration has the extraordinary potential to expand scientific knowledge and innovation in health care. This collaboration can improve the longevity and quality of life for millions of patients. There is marked synergy between animal and human health. The way scientific collaboration between the Veterinary and the Medical community can improve patient care is well illustrated by the development of the First Balloon Expandable Coronary Stent. *

The writer was fortunate to have completed a 5-year Veterinary Medical Degree followed 1-year later by a 5-year Medical Degree at the University of Queensland, Australia. Following clinical training that culminated in specialist qualifications in Cardiovascular Diseases, he completed his education with a PhD in Cardiac Hemodynamics at Sydney University, Australia.

A National Heart Foundation Fellowship took him to Emory University in Atlanta Georgia USA to work with Professor Andreas Gruentzig – the pioneer of Coronary Balloon Angioplasty. Coronary angioplasty was plagued by the shortcoming abrupt vessel collapse and closure complicating this potentially valuable procedure.

The writer’s multidisciplinary skills facilitated successful research in multiple animal species and disease models. He collaborated closely with fellow veterinarians at Emory University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

 

This work culminated in the development of the first balloon expandable coronary stent and first FDA approved coronary stent in 1994. The innovative, early clinical work and the scientific foundation of the preclinical animal studies was the underpinning for a medical procedure that has been used in hundreds of millions of patients since its introduction.

 

Coronary stenting revolutionized coronary intervention - saving lives in patients with unstable coronary syndromes and improving quality of life in countless others.

Utilizing his multidisciplinary Veterinary and Medical skills the writer has gone on to develop devices for stenting of the carotid artery, embolic protection filters for the brain and devices for closing large bore access punctures in arteries.

There can be no doubt about the unique potential for the One Health Model for Multidisciplinary Training and Collaboration.”

Salmonella outbreaks linked to backyard poultry [Requires One Health approach]

 

“In a collaborative effort, the CDC, multiple states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service are investigating the outbreaks, which span 48 states and the District of Columbia (see map). Dates of illness so far include Jan. 4 to June 20, 2017. Of the 580 people with available data, 174 were hospitalized; there were no deaths. As of June 1, 36% of cases were children younger than 5 years of age. ...”

 

“... Backyard flocks highlight the need to implement an important public health measure referred to as the One Health Initiative (www.onehealthinitiative.com). This initiative requires collaborative efforts among multiple disciplines (physicians, veterinarians and other health care professionals) at different levels to improve the health of children, adults, animals and the environment. ...”

A world-renowned group of ten experts http://deohs.washington.edu/cohr/cohere-expert-review-group contributed to the design of the newly-reported Checklist for One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence (COHERE), recently published by the journal One Health http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352771417300022.  This tool consists of a set of 19 standards for components that should be included in the conduct and reporting of One Health studies that use observational or interventional epidemiological designs.  It also aims to promote the concept that One Health studies should integrate data from humans, animals, and their environment.  Therefore, experts were included to represent aspects of all three of these domains.

“The expert participants' perspectives enriched the tool by the very nature of addressing their experiences across disciplines,” noted Dr. Lisa A. Conti https://goo.gl/MLVRk1, a veterinarian member of the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono team www.onehealthinitiative.com, the 2017 recipient of the prestigious American Veterinary Epidemiology Society’s (AVES) KF Meyer/James H. Steele Gold Headed Cane Award https://goo.gl/3yaCpK, and internationally recognized One Health leader, who was a co-author on the manuscript.   Dr. Conti added, “...their thoughtful consideration of a unified approach was critical to refining the tool.”  Inclusion of many experts in the process was essential to make the tool flexible to researchers who represent a wide variety of professions and disciplines.

The authors of the manuscript and the expert review group agreed that COHERE should be a living document—one that could be amended to respond to the inclusion of new disciplines, technologies, and ideas. They encourage editors, reviewers, authors, and readers of the One Health literature to contact the COHERE team with suggestions.
