May 2021 report by the #WEF, "How to Build #Trust in #Vaccines seeks to understand how these online conversations can influence our #beliefs around vaccines. [] in partnership w/ the Vaccine Confidence Project, researchers used #AI tools to analyse online discussions." #Biotech
"The report finds that above all, we need to encourage #language that breeds #trust. The researchers say, “trust in the individuals, #institutions & overall #system that together discover, develop & deliver vaccines is fundamental to vaccine confidence.

1/🧵Is my LIFE WORTH MORE than yours if I get #VACCINATED & you don’t? Or if I’m a COVID nurse?

ECMO is advanced life support in short supply that can save lives in extreme #Covid19.

Q 1 of 4:
If a #DeltaVariant surge creates too much demand…WHO GETS MY LAST ECMO MACHINE?
2/ How about essential worker status?

Q 2 of 4: Two #Covid19 patients are admitted on the same day & the virus has destroyed their lungs equally. You only have 8 ECMO machines & 7 are already in use. If forced to choose, WHO DO YOU PRIORITIZE?
3/ THE TWIST:

Q 3 or 4: Two #Covid19 patients are admitted on the same day & the virus has destroyed their lungs equally. You only have 8 ECMO machines & 7 are in use. If forced to choose, WHO DO YOU PRIORITIZE?

I am perplexed how #RogerChou can not only sit on the #CDCOWG but is a lead author. He recused himself at the #CDC meeting due to #COIs bc of his work as ‘expert witness’ in Purdue litigation but is lead author 🤷🏻‍♀️ @CDCDirector @CDCInjury could you explain how this is ethical? 1/
Listening to the #CDCOWG from perspective of #caregiver & advocate was disheartening. For me @CDCDirector assurances that #patients voices were heard was meaningless. She may say that we’ve been heard but then how are so many feeling as we haven’t been? Why are the #legislation 2
of these guidelines continuing? Why are those who have benefitted from #opioid #pain medications being removed, shamed & stigmatized? Why is care not individualized? It’s very clear our #voices have not been heard. There is nothing that was said that eased my concern for 3/

Thread: Thoughts on #valuebased & #patientcenteredcare

Within #healthcare & #advocacy there seems to be a great deal of discussion on both #valuebased care & #PCC. #Healthcare costs have skyrocketed’ & thus a need to #reduce. I am not an #economist but as a #caregiver I 1/
definitely have seen ‘waste’. From my POV costs will continue to skyrocket even if #valuebased care is implemented. One reason (again not an economist) is the vulture ‘istic’ aspect of industries profiting from our system. The other reason is that our system is not centered 2/
around the #patient or patients needs. Thus, if the value based metric is reduced hospital admissions, this, on the face seems straight forth, however if the patients needs are not taken into account but only focused on established metric, costs could (& I will argue often r) 3/

I can’t remember who said this, so I apologize, but the app -lication of #healthcare is not the answer to magically transforming the system. So many applications, portals, surveys…. They can assist but first a true cultural shift must be made in #healthcare. For this to be 1/

I strongly urge all #scientists to return to their laboratories and conduct thorough #research on the topics within their purview.

#Health policy and #restriction decisions are the responsibility of the government and must consider multiple factors. 🇬🇧

In my opinion, Lancet did very poorly to publish the document accessible from the link: thelancet.com/journals/lance…

This is undue political pressure on the #UK government to try to prevent a return to normal life.

I posted this yesterday with parents permission. I wanted to expand on this video a bit.

1st, a big part of me feels very uncomfortable with posting. Just like a big part of me felt uncomfortable about posting about my kids experience (w permission). It feels exploitive. 1/
Yet, when I share experiences of #caregivers & or #patients (who had given me permission to share) those experiences were/are often questioned or I’ve been excused of exaggerating. Or like many others called a #shill for #Pharmaceutical companies. I am a mother, who 2/
witnessed first hand the harms of pain ignored, not treated, under treated or labeled as #psychosomatic. I remember very vividly how my kids would arch their backs in pain & scream. How helpless I felt. I have seen the repercussions of this #harm & am absolutely obsessed 3/

I wanted to share some comments by #parents whose children have #pancreatitis. As I have shared before, the #pain care for these kids is NOT adequate. Their #pain is often not being addressed. I have asked parents to start writing up their stories to share. When #pain is not 1/
addressed it causes trauma, not only for the child/youth but parents. We know unaddressed #pain can lead to #chronicpain. I absolutely believe in #biopyschosocial approach but what we are seeing is a #psychosocial approach being utilized and #bio aspect missing. This leaves 2/
#parents and #patients feeling angry & abandoned. One of the reasons I started getting involved in #advocacy is that my kids #pain was dismissed, they were labeled. This leads to #trauma, #chronicpain & distrust of #physician. What HCP need to understand is that when this is 3/

Using the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare’s Statewise Covid Hospital Report, we found that the ratio of hospital beds to patients in Delhi is approximately 1 bed for 190 people, and is one of the highest ratios amongst all states.
Despite that, we saw the severe scarcity of hospital beds and medical infrastructure during the second wave of COVID- 19.

What about our other states and villages that have even lesser medical resources? How are they placed to protect themselves against the #COVID19Pandemic?
In view of the catastrophic second wave in #MadhyaPradesh, it is crucial to zoom into health infrastructure to gauge its preparedness - even as cases slowly decline.

We found that the ratio of #hospitalbeds to patients in Madhya Pradesh is approximately 1 bed for 640 people.

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

To review #COVIDisAirborne as in it can be in the air WE breathe BUT we can’t see it or smell it.

Think of it like 🚬💨Studies show 🦠can hang around in air in some rooms a long while (up to 16hrs in studies)like 🚬💨in a bar/pub/hotel room.

That means #BewareTheAir 1/
We all need to understand WHAT #airborne means & what we can do.
Chalk dust 👇🏼is another thing to think of like 🚬💨

#WashYourHands & deep cleaning are still relevant but they will NOT clean the air!

We need to know how to clean air AND avoid breathing in contaminated air 2/
To avoid breathing in contaminated air maintain #physicaldistancing especially indoors & places with poor ventilation.

That’s because if there’s poor air flow there’s less dilution of the air & if there’s 🦠there it can hang around longer waiting for you to breathe it in.

It’s interesting I’m being told how long is ideal in #NHS for Clinical Consultations in Outpatients by ‘management’, who can hold as many meetings of undefined purpose and length as they wish at short notice & expect my participation @djnicholl @PeteGordon68 @vincentconnolly
The most important Meetings in #Healthcare are between Patient and Clinician but are not the ones valued and prioritised by management

dropbox.com/s/vd7fybw50ml9…
Imagine if management’s meetings were subject to same rules as outpatients?
Schedule 6 weeks in advance
New Agenda items 30 mins max, Reviews 15 mins. Extra items can be added by anyone but all items must still be discussed. Items for other meetings can be added in Willy Nilly

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

Some thoughts about #Apple's latest #WWDC21 and #privacy. A thread 👇
The good:

There's no question that Apple has brought some exciting new features for privacy lately. The possibility for users to block some #data collection, one's #email blocking trackers, the chance to use email aliases for interactions with companies...
#Safari hiding internet traffic from your internet service provider... all fantastic, and hugely important.

Apple is showing that #privacy is a competitive advantage. And their #security is much better than that of competitors

But before we get too complacent...

Super excited to see our paper on #Covid19 #Fiscal Support and its Effectiveness, with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed & @mraissi80 @IMFNews, out in Economics Letters. You can read it (free access) from here: authors.elsevier.com/c/1dDlMbZedt0om #TGVAR 1/n Image
With new variants/waves & reimposition of restrictions in some regions, governments around the world are calling for a careful assessment of the effectiveness of the adopted #Covid19 #fiscal measures before they embark on further easing or tailoring of measures 2/n

I was grateful for the opportunity to discuss the impact of #ExtremeHeat on behavior & #MentalHealth with @kare11 on behalf of @HennepinHC on Friday.

A brief #tweetorial on some other important details that weren’t able to be included in the segment.🧵

My perspective @ETHealthWorld

1. “SDG1, which calls to “end poverty in all its forms everywhere” could be in peril without UHC, as almost 90 million people are impoverished by health expenses every year.”
2. In India, we run a higher risk of impoverishing our people as more than 50% of healthcare expenditure is met by families.., with 60% of rural and 40% of urban families are having to borrow, sell assets or ask for contributions from family & friends to meet hospitalization exp.
