Kinderkrebsspezialisten wollen mehr über Komplementärmedizin lernen

Kinderkrebsspezialisten in Deutschland wünschen sich eine bessere Ausbildung über medizinische Methoden und Heilmittel außerhalb der Schulmedizin, schon allein, um die Eltern ihrer Patienten umfassender und kompetenter beraten zu können. Das ist ein Ergebnis der ersten Umfrage unter Kinderonkologen zu diesem Thema durch Mediziner und Wissenschaftler des Gemeinschaftskrankenhauses Herdecke und der Universität Witten/Herdecke.

Sie wollten erfahren, wie die Einstellung von deutschen Kinderkrebsspezialisten gegenüber Komplementärmedizin und Alternativmedizin (CAM) ist.

Auch bei der Therapie von krebskranken Kindern wird in steigendem Maße, ergänzend oder alternativ zur Schulmedizin, anthroposophische Medizin, Homöopathie und Akupunktur eingesetzt.

Die Wissenschaftler verschickten an fast 700 deutsche Kinderkrebsspezialisten einen vierteiligen Fragebogen. Sie erhielten von 175 Angeschriebenen eine korrekte Antwort.

Die ganze Kette beruht auf der Pressemitteilung der Universität Witten/Herdecke.

Die Brights bedienen sich beim Juraforum, das Juraforum beim IDW, und das IDW wird versorgt von der Pressestelle der Universität Witten/Herdecke. Und der Text ist sowieso Quark. Wenn ich das hier irgendwo richtig gelesen habe, war der Seifert, den wir hier auch in den Akten haben, nicht bloß an dieser Umfrage beteiligt, sondern hat anscheinend auch eine Disseration oder anderen Blödsinn daraus gezimmert. Die "akademischen Würden" der Ärzte sind entsetzlich albern.

[*QUOTE*]
——————————————–
I found it hard to decide whether to cry or to laugh while reading this paper.

Experience in anthroposophic paediatric medicine does not make anyone an expert in anything other than BS.

Expert consensus and clinical guidelines are not conducted by assembling a few people who all are in favour of a certain therapy while ignoring the scientific evidence.

AM for acute tonsillitis in children is nonsense, whatever these pseudo-experts claim.

Imagine we run a Delphi process with a few long-standing members of ‘the flat earth society’ and ask them to tell us about the shape of the earth …

…I rest my case.

Abstract

Background

Medical guidelines are an important basis for qualitative and cost-effective patient care. However, there is a lack of clinical recommendations in anthroposophic medicine (AM), an integrative medicine approach frequently practised in Europe. Acute tonsillitis, which includes tonsillopharyngitis, is a common childhood disease. that is mostly caused by a viral infection. Symptomatic treatment is therefore of high importance, and AM can offer several therapy options.

Methods

53 physicians from Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, and Hungary with at least one year of experience in anthroposophic paediatric medicine were invited to participate in an online Delphi process. The process comprises five survey rounds starting with open-ended questions and ending with final statements, which need 75% agreement of experts to reach consensus. Expert answers were evaluated by two independent reviewers using MAXQDA and Excel.

Results

Response rate was between 28% and 45%. The developed recommendation included 15 subtopics. These covered clinical, diagnostic, therapeutic and psychosocial aspects of acute tonsillitis. Six subtopics achieved a high consensus (>90%) and nine subtopics achieved consensus (75–90%).

Conclusion

The clinical recommendation for acute tonsillitis in children aims to simplify everyday patient care and provide decision-making support when considering and prescribing anthroposophic therapies. Moreover, the recommendation makes AM more transparent for physicians, parents, and maybe political stakeholders as well.

Consensus-based clinical recommendation

1. Introduction

Acute tonsillitis (including acute tonsillopharyngitis, acute pharyngitis) is common in childhood and is therefore a common reason for acute medical consultation.1, 2, 3 In most cases, it is caused by virally induced inflammation of the palatine tonsil.4 In the case of a bacterial genesis, the most commonly bacteria are group A Streptococcus (GABHS).4 Characteristic symptoms are sudden onset of sore throat with or without difficulty swallowing, fever and malaise. Clinical symptoms include enlargement of tonsils with presence of plaque and hyperemia as well as enlargement of cervical lymph nodes.3, 5

Despite the mostly viral etiology of acute tonsillitis, in which symptomatic treatment is indicated, prescription of antibiotics is frequent. This unnecessary prescription of antibiotics is particularly problematic because antibiotic resistance due to overprescription is an important issue.3, 6, 7 Moreover, repeated antibiotic use have negative effects on the intestinal microbiota causing inter alia obesity.8

Complementary, alternative and/or integrative medicine (CAIM) includes therapeutic approaches that are used in addition to or instead of conventional medicine.9, 10 A relevant percentage of parents want CAIM therapy for their children.11, 12 Different CAIM therapies for the treatment of acute tonsillitis can be found in the literature. Herbal medicine in particular has been repeatedly examined in the context of childhood tonsillitis therapy.11, 13, 14 Use of anthroposophic medicine for acute tonsillitis was investigated in a prospective observational comparison study including pediatric patients with acute respiratory or ear infection by Hamre et al. The authors demonstrated a significant reduced prescription of antibiotics and fewer analgesics while showing quicker symptom resolution and higher caregiver satisfaction.15

Anthroposophic medicine (AM) is a frequently practiced CAIM therapy which is used particularly in Central Europe, mostly in Germany and Switzerland.16 It was introduced in 1920 by Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Dr. Ita Wegmann and aims to expand and supplement conventional medicine. Utilizing a holistic treatment approach, AM aims to consider the whole person with their physical, living, mental and spiritual dimensions as well as their personal biography.17 In Germany and Switzerland, some AM treatments are reimbursed by health insurances. The German hospitals Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Herdecke and the Filderklinik (Filderstadt) have departments for paediatric integrative medicine that practice AM.18 These two pediatric departments treat an average of 3000 pediatric inpatients per year 19.

Clinical recommendations and guidelines are a valuable support of clinical work - this also applies to AM. The clinical experience of the treating physician serves as the basis for the application of AM. Such experiences are summarized in the Vademecum of anthroposophic medicine. Herein indication, recommendation and other important information for more than 600 anthroposophic medicine products are described. The information based on questionnaires (experience reports) that physicians can fill on their own initiative or analysis of experience reports.20 Evidence- or consensus-based recommendations, especially for children, are still missing. Therefore, we developed an expert consensus-based clinical recommendation for an integrative anthroposophic treatment of acute tonsillitis in childhood with the goal of making AM more transparent for parents, physicians and stakeholders.

2. Methods

The aim of the project was to consult anthroposophic physicians, guide them through an online-based Delphi process and generate clinical recommendations for AM treatment of acute tonsillitis in children.21, 22

2.1. Pool of experts

The pool of experts was made up of 53 physicians with at least one year of experience in pediatric AM. German physicians from the pediatric departments of the Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Herdecke (GKH; n = 11), the Filderklinik (n = 11) as well as practicing paediatricians (n = 25) were invited. Some German-speaking physicians from other European countries were also contacted (Spain n = 1, Austria n = 1, Switzerland n = 2, Hungary n = 1, Netherlands n = 1).

2.2. Delphi Process

The Delphi process was developed in 1963 and is a systematic, multi-stage survey procedure with the goal of developing a consensus-based opinion of experts.23, 24 To create the recommendation presented here, a Delphi process with five survey rounds was carried out, starting with open-ended questions and ending with consensus-scoring (Fig. 1). The UniPark online survey tool (www.unipark.com

) was used for the anonymous expert questioning.

Fig. 1. Development process of the consensus-based treatment guideline using the Delphi process.

In the first round, experts received a questionnaire with six open-ended questions that covered the following subsections:

    1.    Disease course
    2.    Pathogenesis
    3.    Diagnostics
    4.    Therapies
    5.    Chances and risks
    6.    Interaction between the physicians, children and parents

The data was qualitatively analysed, and answers were thematically clustered according to the following topics:

    1.    Important factors in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis
    2.    Spectrum of pathogens
    3.    Symptoms of tonsillitis
    4.    Accompanying symptoms of tonsillitis
    5.    Inspection and physical examination
    6.    Relevant diagnostic procedures
    7.    Disease course
    8.    The most important principles in anthroposophic extended therapy
    9.    Anthroposophic therapies for external use
    10.   Anthroposophic gargle therapies
    11.   Anthroposophic medication
    12.   Antibiotic therapy
    13.   Possible positive aspects of tonsillitis
    14.   Risks of tonsillitis
    15.   Aspects of interaction and counselling between physician and the child’s parents during consultation

In addition to the main topics mentioned above and all answers given in the first round, a second round of questions was sent to the experts. The experts were required to rank the statements that best represented their clinical opinion by a drag-and-drop function.

The resulting data was quantitatively analyzed and only answers chosen by > 50% of physicians were used for the expert clinical recommendation.

In the third round, the experts received a first draft of the recommendation. They were then required to agree or disagree on the individual topics. Topics which did not receive > 75% agreement were revised and sent out again for another round of voting, which constituted the 4th and 5th round of the Delphi process.

2.3. Consensus assessment

The consensus was evaluated according to the ESPEN (European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism) classification for strength of consensus (Table 1).25 If a section received ≤ 75% approval, it was modified based on the justifications for disagreement given by the experts and then sent out again. This process was repeated until a consensus of > 75% was reached (Table 1). Therefore, at the end of the survey, all experts agreed with each of the sub-items with a consensus of > 75%. The German Association of the Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) has developed a system of guidelines that classifies guideline development into four levels and ranks them from S1 to S3, with S3 being the highest quality level of the development methodology. Based on this ranking, our guideline can classified as an S2k guideline, since it contains experts who were involved in the development of the guideline, it is based on a Delphi process, and it was subject to a structured consensus finding.26

Table 1. ESPEN classification for the strength of consensus (Table modified from25).
Agreement of experts   Assessment
> 90%   Strong consensus
> 75–90%   Consensus
> 50–75%   Majority agreement
< 50%   No consensus

2.4. Data analysis

After the first round, expert answers to open-ended questions were analysed by two independent reviewers using MAXQDA, a software for qualitative data analysis.

If different ratings were given by the two independent reviewers, a third reviewer was consulted. The answers to drag-and-drop questions were evaluated quantitatively using Excel.

2.5. Ethical approval

The ethics application for this survey was approved by the ethics commission of the University of Witten/Herdecke (179/2016).

3. Results

3.1. Response rate

Of the 53 contacted experts, 36% (N = 21) took part in the first round. Expert participation in the second round was 28% (N = 16) and 40% (N = 23) experts responded in the third round. The fourth (29%; N = 17) and fifth (45%; N = 26) round were used for re-consensus voting on diagnostic, disease progression, antibiotic therapy. In each round, the same cohort of 53 experts was contacted.

3.2. Development of treatment recommendation

Five survey rounds were required to create a clinical treatment recommendation with 15 subsections, which are shown in Fig. 2. A strong consensus (>90%) was reached for 40% of the topics (N = 6) and consensus (>75%) was received for the remaining 60% (N = 9) of topics. All experts agreed on the topics regarding antibiotic therapy and possible positive aspects of tonsillitis in childhood. A strong consensus was also observed for the following categories: “the spectrum of pathogens” (91% consensus), “relevant diagnostic procedures at physician's consultation” (93% consensus), “anthroposophic gargle therapies” (91% consensus) and “aspects of interaction and counselling between physician and child’s parents during consultation” (96% consensus). The remaining topics reached a consensus of > 75–90% and are as follows: “important factors in the genesis of tonsillitis”, “specific symptoms of tonsillitis”, attendant / secondary symptoms of tonsillitis, inspection and physical examination, disease progression, the most important principles of anthroposophic therapy, anthroposophic therapies for external use, anthroposophic medication, risks of tonsillitis in childhood.

    1.    Fever to strengthen the immune system
    2.    Self-healing processes are activated by the disease
    3.    Rest can increase reconvalescence

    1.    Recurrent courses
    2.    Peritonsillar abscess
    3.    Missing an Ebstein-Barr infection
    4.    If antibiotics are used frequently, the risk of recurrence is high

Aspects of interaction and counselling between physician and child’s parents during consultation (96% consensus):

    1.    It is important to treat parents and children with respect and to be friendly
    2.    As the treating physician, project confidence in dealing with the disease
    3.    Communicate the importance of rest for the child to the parents
    4.    Communicate that recovery without antibiotic therapy is possible even with a feverish disease course and that the risk of recurrence is reduced as a result
    5.    Inform parents about the usually mild clinical picture
    6.    Discuss how to deal with illness, fever and malaise experienced as a result of the acute tonsillitis

4. Discussion

Guidelines are an important tool used in medicine, including in paediatrics, since they can improve the quality of patient care and reduce costs. A variety of guidelines are available in paediatrics in Germany.27 To use AM in paediatrics in a scientifically sound manner and to create more transparency for parents and health insurance companies, it is of great importance to create guidelines in anthroposophic paediatrics. Even though there is high patient demand, trials or official guidelines on AM therapy for tonsillitis in children are missing. AM therapies are used in Germany both in an outpatient and an inpatient setting in the departments for paediatrics of the German anthroposophic hospitals Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Herdecke and Filderklinik,.11 It still presents a common problem that patients actively using CAIM often do not talk with their treating physician about CAIM options.11, 28 On the other side physicians are not able to adequately advise patients about CAIM.29 This underscores the urgency of treatment recommendations for physicians to improve patient counseling and education about CAIM.

The aim of this study was to create a clinical recommendation for the AM treatment of tonsillitis in children. Since there are no trials on this treatment, it was not possible to create an evidence-based guideline. A multistep, online expert survey (Delphi process) was therefore used to establish consensus-based recommendations for the AM treatment of tonsillitis in children.

These recommendations are intended not to replace but to complement the existing conventional treatment regimens and is aimed at both anthroposophic and non-anthroposophic physicians who work in hospitals or outpatient care in pediatrics.

Our recommendation also contains facts about disease characteristics, diagnostic and conventional treatment to present a complete overview of the disease. These facts are consistent with data of existing guidelines, as expected. Spectrum of pathogens are also in line with epidemiological data.2, 4

Especially in AM, the individual is of great importance and so the guideline should not replace the individual therapy decision of the treating physicians. Nevertheless, since the survey resulted in high consensus values (a strong consensus (>90%) was reached for 40% of the topics), the clinical recommendation can serve as a basis for decisions in anthroposophic treatment in everyday practice. Clinical recommendations for childhood gastroenteritis and bronchitis have already been drawn up, and are currently being implemented and prospectively evaluated.30, 31 These studies are underway in the children's department of the Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus in Herdecke and the same implementation is also intended for the guidelines presented here regarding the therapy of acute tonsillitis in childhood. The clinical implementation and the prospective evaluation of the existing recommendations for bronchitis and gastroenteritis underscore the applicability of the treatment recommendation.

The experts found a consensus on the cause, diagnostics, therapy, aspects of interaction and counselling between physician and child’s parents and anthroposophic aspects of tonsillitis in children with five rounds of online surveys. Of the 53 invited experts, a minimum of 28% (N = 16) and a maximum of 45% (N = 26) of the experts took part in these rounds. They found a consensus for more than 83% of presented therapies (remedies, external application, and gargle therapies).

All medications recommended in this guideline are authorized by the federal institute for drugs and medical devices (BfArm) in Germany and can be prescribed by every physician. This makes our recommendation highly applicable in everyday clinical practice.

In summary, the guideline presented here contributes to the scientific elaboration of AM in pediatrics and makes the approach of AM physicians more transparent for parents, stakeholders and physicians.

Nevertheless, further studies on anthroposophic therapy for tonsillitis in childhood, especially controlled clinical trials, are needed, to develop a guideline with a higher evidence-level.

5. Limitations

The Delphi process has also same limitation. The assessments and the statements reflect the knowledge and opinions of a selected group of physicians. For example, two experts disagree to the statement “Tonsillitis is caused by viruses, group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (Streptococcus pyogenes) or other bacteria” which is scientifically correct. One expert did not comment its disagreement and the other one stated that bacteria are not the trigger but aggravated the disease. The statement "If antibiotics are used frequently, the risk of recurrence is high", which 87% of the experts agreed with, cannot be proven by scientific studies. The qualitative analysis of the answers and the summarizing of the expert information by our reviewers be biased. A software tool (MAXQDA) was used to qualitatively analyse the data and counteract this bias and two independent reviewers were included in the evaluation. The low participation rate of the surveyed cohort (maximum N = 26) must also be mentioned as a limitation. Moreover, some of the experts are also from the same department and therefore might use similar therapy regimes. Due to anonymity of the Delphi process, it was also not possible to determine the number of participating experts outside of Germany. Although the guideline is intended to be applied internationally, it must be noted that it represents the opinion of predominantly German physicians and may not be implemented in all regions of the world. We are also aware that anthroposophic medicines are not always available, especially in developing countries.

Das bedeutet dann ja ganz offensichtlich, daß es Datamining gibt. Das wußten wir schon. Aber daß es dafür Lizenzen gibt, daß Jemand mit einem Spider die Texte und Bilder klauen darf, das ist neu.

Wieder ein Beweisstück mehr für die unfaßbare, lebensgefährliche Dämlichkeit deutscher "Medien". Zuerst der garantiert ungekürzte Text. Es soll doch nicht heißen, daß wir aus dem Zusammenhang reißen.  Das dicke Ende ist das dicke Ende.

Geständnis vor Gericht
Russischer Influencer lässt Baby verhungern, weil er es nur mit Licht ernähren wollte
Eine Statue der Justitia steht mit Waage und Schwert in der Hand.

Der russische Influencer Maxim Lyutyi versuchte, sein neugeborenes Baby mit Prana-Ernährung großzuziehen – einer umstrittenen Praxis, bei der Menschen sich „von der Sonne ernähren“. Das Baby verhungerte – dafür musste sich Lyutyi nun vor Gericht verantworten.

Der russische Rohkost-Influencer und Lifestyle-Blogger Maxim Lyutyi hat vor Gericht zugegeben, für den Tod seines Babys verantwortlich zu sein, weil es nichts zu essen bekommen hat. Stattdessen habe der 44-jährige Vater versucht, sein Kind nur mit Sonnenlicht zu „füttern“. Das berichten internationale Medien, darunter der britische „Mirror“.

Demnach wog das Baby zum Zeitpunkt seines Todes lediglich 1,5 Kilogramm. Die offizielle Todesursache lautete „Lungenentzündung und Abmagerung“. Lyutyi und seine 34-jährige Partnerin hatten das Baby namens Kosmos nicht ausreichend ernährt. Jetzt drohen dem Influencer acht Jahre Gefängnis. Seine Partnerin wurde bereits zu zwei Jahren „Strafarbeit“ verurteilt.

Gefährliche „Ernährungsweise“

Zuvor hatte Lyutyi noch versucht, seine Partnerin für den Tod des Babys verantwortlich zu machen. Nun gestand er in einem letzten Gerichtsauftritt vor der Urteilsverkündung diese Woche in Sotschi seine Schuld ein.

Zuvor war bekannt geworden, dass Lyutyi die sogenannte Prana-Ernährung bei seinem Kind ausprobiert habe. Prana kommt aus dem Hinduismus und bedeutet Lebensenergie. Anhänger der Lichtnahrung behaupten, dass das Sonnenlicht sie mit Energie, Mineralstoffen und Vitaminen versorge und sie somit auf Wasser und feste Nahrung verzichten können. Wissenschaftliche Belege, dass sich Menschen ausschließlich von Sonnenlicht ernähren können, gibt es nicht.

Es gibt keine "Lichtnahrung". Zu behaupten, daß es sie gäbe, ist lebensgefährlicher Mist.

Aber "Journalisten" sind ja sowas von "ausgewogen", daß sie das nicht sagen, sondern ganz "neutral" "berichten":

"Wissenschaftliche Belege, dass sich Menschen ausschließlich von Sonnenlicht ernähren können, gibt es nicht."

Wie kann man nur so eine Scheiße schreiben!?

Selbstverständlich gibt es keine Beweise dafür. Aber es gibt Milliarden Beweise, daß Menschen, die nichts essen hungern, und deswegen sterben. Wie kann ein Mensch so verblödet sein, TROTZDEM so zu tun, als ob doch etwas dran sein könnte, daß es funktioniert!?
