Health Information for All in a Language of their Choosing[уреди извор]
The English Wikiproject Medicine in collaboration with Translators Without Borders has launched an effort to improve key medical content in English followed by translation into as many other languages as possible. We are wondering if people from this project would be interested in getting involved? A list of topics this effort is planning on covering can be found here Book:Health care. A full description of the project is here. Feel free to drop me a note on my talk page on the English Wikipedia User talk:Doc James if you wish more details or have questions. --Jmh649 (разговор) 22:13, 20 март 2012 (CET)
Medicine Thematic Organization[уреди извор]
Discussion is currently taking place on meta about forming a thematic organization related to medicine. All who are interested are invited to participate. This organization will have a number of goals, one of which is to help develop partnerships with other organizations to improve the quality of medical content on Wikipedia and its sister projects in all languages. If this sounds like fun please join. Like most things within Wikimedia activities and direction will primarily be determined by the volunteers.

Hi. I'm currently a post-doctoral fellow with Lilly's Clinical Open Innovation team and am working on a project to help bring region (country) specific disease state information to the main article page. The goal of the project is to determine the standards of care for treating different disease states in different regions of the world. For instance, how a disease state managed in a certain country can be quite different in another country.
You can read the discussion thread of this project in WikiProject Medicine (Eng) here. I am looking to recruit at least 1 to 2 people from each country who can help me lead this effort. I have started with the disease state, hypertension, and have already inputed information from the region of Scotland in a sandbox. They can be found here: Epidemiology of Hypertension, Diagnosis of Hypertension, and Management of Hypertension. The goal is to fill in the information for the other countries as well.
Again, I'm looking for at least 1 to 2 people from each country who can help me launch this effort. For those interested, please reply back on my talk page in your language or in English (whichever is easier for you) and indicate which country you will be representing. Once enough people have been recruited, I will discuss the plan I have in place to carry this forward. I highly value your participation in this effort. The information we collectively put together could result in a standards of care knowledge map that could eventually look similar to the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, but on a global scale, in Wikipedia. Thank you for your time. GT67 (разговор) 23:50, 21 февруари 2013 (CET)
