Medical Innovations:  An Analysis of Characteristics 



Daniella E.C.C.O.H. Kingsley-Godwin


Constant reforms  and innovations have been occurring in medical practice and education globally for the past decades.   These have been as a result of advances in medical practice worldwide.  In addition, patients have become more informed about their health, and these have resulted in an increase in demands and expectations, thereby bringing about the changing roles of the doctors and healthcare workers in society1,2.  There is now a need for healthcare workers to be more involved in teaching and research, as well as in patient care. In addition, people are living longer in society with chronic diseases, and surviving for decades, due to advances in medicine and new technology. 


Likewise, people with genetic disorders are surviving more than before and life expectancy for people with different forms of cancers are improving over the past years.  In this editorial, we will explore some medical innovations that are being used to transform the ways we fight various diseases.
