Let’s talk #safetyculture

@TheIHI

It’s a framework for a harm reduction towards all: patients & families as well as all staff

Important:
growth mindset
instead of
fixed mindset

to have needed uncomfortable conversations

#MedTwitter #AcademicTwitter #MedEd #NurseTwitter
This framework has been applied to reducing harm, mostly through medication error (though intended to achieve population health)

Then was expanded to patient experience

Also, cost of care

More recently we have added clinician wellbeing

=quadruple aim

What has not been clearly stated in any of these #safety framework is disparities, structural inequity, or racism

The acute care side of the hospital - money maker - thinks of this as type of safety & #quality

but not #populationhealth

#Implicitbias elicits 🙄😡😴 response

Much debate on #SciComm. Little formal guidance exists. Those on academic committees that oversee ethics & professionalism are unfamiliar with social media. And now we are in a crisis and #pandemic of many levels. #publichealth very different from industry (1st vs rest).
In #publichealth one, the 1st points are be first & be right

There is an inherent tension between these two

With disrupted public health coordination, like cutting off from WHO, changing guidance from CDC (masks only for clinicians, no everyone wear them) how to be accurate?
In comparison, industry guidance #SoMe guidance. Industry has a lot more experience with this and uses it for marketing, market share, customer outreach, customer brand recognition, brand management. The focus is prestige, optics, reputation - there are monetizable traits.

A word to you ladies & femmes who are looking to advance equity:

Highly recommend studying cultures were women have historically held power, to understand use of power

I found this extremely informative, both on power & for my own cultural roots

A key attribute was that these women were daughters in tribal culture, therefore more trusted than an outsider

That can mean your university or company network, even religious group. For instance, Dr. Birx is evangelical as are current health advisors

You still have to be qualified.
But final cut: usually “in group” gets in + staying power

“Group” can be defined in various ways. Options for me: #publichealth, #pediatrician, #communityhealth etc.

Know which groups have internal competition & dysfunction (Doctors, Academics)

Love, LOVE @NicoleB_MD for doing this. Shout out to @DrToddWo & @DrJCoftheDC too for their savvy outreach to youth patients- am especially impressed with @DrJCoftheDC of @OHSUNews as a role model in communities of color. @AmerAcadPeds #TikTok #tweetiatrician #Pediatrics
*This* is what it means to create “safe space” - no shaming or judgement, only encouragement, kindness, affirmation from a #tweetiatrician who shares that she too was a #teenmom.
Meet patients where they are.
Be a role model.

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

(She loves this song)

#Healthcare is a fundamental human right. In 2018, our legislature helped to ensure that right by expanding Medicaid. As of today, nearly 250K Virginians have enrolled in the program and now have access to quality healthcare.
This is what happens when we elect Democrats who are tenacious and unwilling to accept the status quo. But we still have work to do. We still have an opioid epidemic that is devastating communities and major improvements that need to be made to our mental health care system.
Last week, I was happy to visit one of our local facilities and have a great discussion with physicians and staff about these issues; we even tackled the benefits of community health.

Democrats are simply asking for action on the broad set of bipartisan priorities before the Congress:/1 #ABetterDeal #DemPartyPlatform #Democrats #DemForce #DemPriorities
Keep government open: While Republicans control the House and the Senate, and President Trump said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ Democrats want to keep government open./2
#ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #Democrats
Raise the caps: Democrats want a strong national defense. We also need an equal increase in our domestic budget, which includes critical national security functions and commitments to hard working families. #ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #DemsWork4USA
