#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.

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.

Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

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

#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

“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?

Dear IPS, ask Indian state to lift the communication blackout so people and media can talk to local psychiatriss. Supporting state policies seriously shadows your credibility for blind nationaism. #StandwithKashmir thehindu.com/news/cities/mu…
I am a Kashmiri psychiatrist and sadly member of IPS. I have worked & researched in #kashmir. There are 💯 of papers documenting the trauma and torture of local population. Sadly you stand with psychiatrists like the ones in Nazi Germany who put ethics behind. #StandwithKashmir
It would be good to know if you have spoken to any of your member in Kashmir chapter of IPS? Probably you don't care as it's about national interest and blind faith in propaganda news. You even planned to troll @TheLancet

Today's article in @TheKenWeb contemplates "what ails" Indian #ECG Companies and concludes "Plenty as it turns out, starting with #healthcare providers themselves."

the-ken.com/story/what-ai-…

I have heard these sort of comments a lot in various flavours from different #HealthIT
What usually happens is a group of highly skilled, honest, hardworking Engineers or Management Graduates #Startups develop a product or service, test it and find it successfull but when they want to market is doctors don't buy
So
They start blaming doctors, directly or indirectly saying that this is a magic solution which will revolutionalise health and save 20 crores people per year, but this dull headed docs are not able to see the potential and / or afraid of technology

I've been hearing a lot of resignation in people's voices and tweets, in the face of the latest tragedy at #PowaySynagogueShooting. People are giving up hope that we can ever bend the curve on our #gunviolence epidemic.

--This thread is dedicated to destroying that despair.—
6 years ago, we watched those babies walk out of #SandyHook - & were torn apart, as a nation, by the memory of those who didn't make it.

Many of us had been told that we "couldn't" talk about guns.

But after Sandy Hook, many of us said "no more; we will not be silent."
A few bravely started talking and writing about why #gunviolence was a #publichealth issue. Those few, turned into a wave. The groundwork was slowly laid.
