How to Discourage a Doctor

The official unofficial playbook:

“Make health care incomprehensible to physicians. It is no easy task to baffle the most intelligent people in the organization, but it can be done.”
“For example, make physicians increasingly dependent on complex systems outside their domain of expertise, such as information technology and coding and billing software.”
“Promote a sense of insecurity among medical staff. A comfortable physician is a confident physician, + a confident physician usually proves difficult to control. To undermine confidence, let it be known that their jobs are in jeopardy + their compensation is likely to decline.”

Brain imaging confirms what your grandmother told you: overworrying makes you feel worse. Treating #anxiety can often ease the burden of #ChronicPain.

Thread: comparing tests that screen for anxiety with & without physical symptoms threadreaderapp.com/thread/1270853…

By contrast, 40% of the items on the 4 Dimensional Symptoms Questionnaire ask about specific physical symptoms, every 1 of which can be indicate #migraine. semanticscholar.org/paper/The-Four…

#Doctors and #Medicine need an #AI update.
Bold and convincing book.

@EricTopol
#ArtificialIntelligence has the ability to bring the fourth industrial revolution. Healthcare is deemed to be an industry which can get transformed the most.

#DeepMedicine
@EricTopol is a #cardiologist, historian of the present and a #MedicalFuturist.
He believes that the way we practice medicine now ( #ShallowMedicine ) relies too heavily on human inputs and is thus plagued by human biases and imperfections.

#Thread: "Are dentists doctors?"

This question comes up time and again, directly or indirectly. I don't know why but it does.

So I posted this poll and the results surprised me. The popular joke was that there were more dentists voting given the results!

#dentist #doctors
I am a dentist. BY CHOICE. I got into Mechanical Engineering but moved to dentistry by choice. Could have gotten into a government medical college but was never interested in Medicine.

I studied in an amazing institute here and in the US, was able to practice and teach there.
Now back in Pune. And I LOVE my profession.

Which brings us to the basic question "Are dentists doctors?"

And the answer is Yes AND No! and it does not end with being a doctor. We are much more than just that. Let's see how.

#Taiwan says @WHO failed to act on #coronavirus transmission warning ~ @primroseriordan @KatrinaManson @KathrinHille @clivecookson

Taiwan said its #doctors had heard from #mainland colleagues that medical staff were getting ill — a sign of human-to-human #transmission. 1/n
#Taipei officials said they reported this to both International Health Regulations (#IHR), a @WHO framework for exchange of #epidemic prevention and response data between 196 countries, and #Chinese health authorities on December 31. 2/n

#CCP_is_terrorist #CCPvirus #ChineseVirus
“While the #IHR’s internal website provides a platform for all countries to share information on the #epidemic and their response, none of the information shared by our country’s [@Taiwan_CDC] is being put up there,” said Chen Chien-jen, #Taiwan’s vice-president. 3/n

The world leadership has failed!
Yes failed!
Closing of Shops, Malls, Cinemas, Schools, Colleges, Businesses effectively endorsing Leaders don't trust on #Science, #Hospitals, #Doctors #Therapies.
Don't trust #China, they cured patients because they bio-engineer #COVID19 @POTUS
If World Leaders close all, how will people know that once closure is undone, virus will not attack or some other bio-war will not attack, what will you do then, close again?
If trust science, leaders have to face this bio-war not in close doors but with open mind, @BorisJohnson
If closing of borders is a solution then #Italy will have less patient,
No, Don't close borders, let people interact, know each other, find & try alternative therapies, closing of borders, closing of businesses means closing of economy.
@narendramodi who will suffer?
People..

Dear @JennyMikakos : thanks for presser. Just wanted to comment about you being "flabbergasted" that the doctor worked. Agree that it's not good but wanted to tell you why. There is no sick leave cover for most doctors. 1/n
2/n If I am sick, I usually still work unless I am physically unable to get there because all my outpatients will get cancelled OR my colleague has to see double. Doing double work is hard. Even less chance of getting lunch than usual. No chance of leaving on time.
3/n patients are angry with you because you are running late (remember, seeing double the booked patients.) You do things faster. You might make an error. You probably finish 2 or 3 hours late and your overtime is not paid of course cos overtime is never paid.

THREAD:#TransHealthEthicsProject interviews w/#trans folks are "thick" examples of barriers to care described generically in surveys. #doctors & #nurses often say "those patterns are terrible, but how can I know if I am doing it?" #narrativematters #bioethics #TransAwarenessWeek
I used a standardized array of interview questions across 15 hours of interviews with trans folks regarding their experiences seeking health care in the United States, both POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE, to give providers #narrative examples/guidelines on what not to do, AND what to do.
I did the interviews and my research assistants (@BreanneRBurton, Ren Czachor, Jake Richardson, and Harry Silvey) transcribed them so that no unknown persons would have access to the audio. While some participants gave permission to share audio, all permit sharing transcripts.

“Finding doctors who will treat, will prescribe, & will even look at you like a human being rather than a thing has been problematic. Have been denied care by doctors & major hospitals so much that... I never reveal my gender history.” — Survey Respondent 2/n
Nearly 1 in 5 trans folks surveyed (19 percent) reported being refused health care care outright because they were transgender or gender non-conforming.

REIHELD NOTE: this is consistent across studies, & across US and Canada. Access to care is about bias, not just systems. 3/n

#Burnout among #doctors & #nurses appears to be at epidemic proportions these days, with concomitant prescriptions for wellness and resilience. But in reality, most are not burned out: most love taking care of patients and want nothing more than to be able to do just that.
#Resilience? The medical folks I see are among the most resilient people in existence. That they manage to soldier on and not walk out en masse—that’s resilience!

#Wellness? That’s like a kindly offer of an ice pack from a mafioso after he’s kneecapped you with a baseball bat.
The corporatization of medicine has profoundly changed the tenor of medical practice. Somewhere along the line, the medical profession was ceded to the health care industry.

Many of us no longer recognize the profession we entered.

Insurance Companies frequently send letters out informing patients that they will not any longer cover medications that I prescribe. It appears that they are targeting #Independent #Doctors that they cannot #Control.
Are there any other doctors that see this pattern? Why on Earth would I remove meds from patients that are doing so well & have no side effects? It would be against my medical oath of "do no harm."
Read the letter they sent to me. CVS writes: " CVS Caremark wants to help your patients stay adherent to their medication therapy." Really? So you discontinue coverage for patients that are doing so well & make them pay for it completely themselves, & you claim you wish to help?

As a medical practitioner, what is your first call of action?
#Doctors
2)Do you know the universal sign to differentiate between Cardiac arrest and heart attack?

Are you confident about what to do at this point?
