A thread about #whitewomen + #health
As a starting place, if you haven't seen it, catch the excellent bit by John Oliver + Wanda Sykes on "Bias in Medicine"
I love that he brought in Wanda Sykes to (again) make the point she does in her standup about "they give pain medicine to white people like they're Tic-Tacs." This is a true fact.

@drjudymelinek @choo_ek
Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

“Administrative tasks have become so burdensome ....only thirteen per cent (13%) of a physician’s day, on average, is spent on doctor-patient interaction” Dr. Topol

1. Public breakdown. It’s my mom’s 76th b-day Thurs. She’s my sole caregiver from a bad car accident resulting in a #TBI. R Home #Foreclosed from my #medical bills/crappy #insurance. All I wanted 2 tell her is I found #investors to charitably save our home.⤵️
2. I know accidents are called that for a reason but my mom’s my best friend & everyday/hour she’s helping care for me. After all she has done & years she’s lost taking care of me, she doesn’t deserve to lose her/our forever home in the last 1/4 of her life w/a #disabled daughter
3. How can I recover and find an #angelInvestor that can save such a wonderful mother/daughter duo? We’re in our home paying rent as ordered by the court until an appeal is over & we’ll be out w/nowhere to go, live, survive. No family. We only have each other & our 3 ‘lil pups.

1 - When you take up #responsibility, a cognitive shift happens in you. Your mental setup changes.
2 - For example, if you work eight hours in your office just following orders you will feel dull and tired. Instead, if you take up responsibility and #initiative, that same eight hours will become much easier and more enjoyable.

A GOVERNANCE HALF-LIFE* IN 25 TWEETS
‘Doing’ governance & (self indulgent) thoughts on #governance & #evidence & #health

I joined DFID on 9/11 (11/09/2001) as a Social Development Adviser.
Not drunk on the MDGs, but slightly merry.
I had never heard of governance. 1/25
I started work in 1993 in health research (Tz, malaria; drug prescribing), then disability inclusion (India) & consulting in health, WATSAN.
After 6 yrs in Kolkata I heard that DFID was recruiting regional specialists.
I fancied myself as a DFID South Asia specialist! 2/25
....DFID sent me to Malawi.
I hadn’t heard of ‘Governance’.
But slowly realised that I had worked on it – local govt, politics, rights in health; water tariffs, participation & transparency, health management.
So Governance in sectors, not Governance as a thing. 3/25

This week I looked at the Rule of Halves, what it means, and the first step to fixing our problems with chronic disease #epitwitter #health #healthcare link.medium.com/tdVlQTi9VW
The basic idea of the Rule of Halves is simple. Of the people who have a chronic disease:

~50% are diagnosed
~50% of diagnosed are treated
~50% of treated actually see a benefit
What this means is that only a small fraction of people who have a chronic disease actually get treated to the extent that we would like

And it's a huge problem for some diseases

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

@realDonaldTrump Crazy?
You also say Dems are "for crime," & "high taxes." THAT'S crazy. They're for border security THAT WORKS, & a FAIR taxation system.

Here's an Iowan who thinks you're wrong to say we're 'full.' Across Iowa and rural America, we need immigrants.
usatoday.com/story/opinion/…
@realDonaldTrump Here's what's crazy.

Experts say 1.1 million fewer people in the U.S. have #health coverage due to efforts to undermine the #ACA through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

Hopefully voters will see the light before 2020.

usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
@realDonaldTrump Here's what's crazy.
You said you wouldn't touch #SocialSecurity, #Medicaid, or #Medicare, but your 2020 budget proposal cuts all 3.

Your YUGE deficit gives an EXCUSE for what GOP has wanted to do all along - cut what they like to call "entitlements."

With the #abortion bills in the US effectively banning abortion in all circumstances, it is time we remember Henry #Morgentaler, a Canadian physician who challenged the #criminalization of abortion in Canada and went to prison for it.

[THREAD]

#law #medicine #obgyn
Dr. Morgentaler was born in Poland in 1923. He was imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. After the war, he immigrated to Canada to study and practice medicine. 2/25
From the beginning he had an interest in reproductive health, becoming one of the first physicians to perform vasectomies, place intrauterine devices (IUD, a form of birth control), and provide birth control pills to unmarried women. 3/25

1/ It’s been a week.

It’s well into Friday evening & I just got off the phone with a patient who had urgent radiology results. This was after spending > 40 min on the phone w another patient discussing the same this afternoon.

(18 more to come; stick with me.)
2/ I only got 2 items on today’s long “to do” list done — but that’s on me. I was finally able to sit down for a couple hours uninterrupted and dig deep into a few patient cases from the week.

(And I “don’t work” on Fridays.)
3/ As I hung up the phone, I reflected on how #directprimarycare has enabled me to get to the heart of medicine & the doctor-patient relationship.

During that call, my patient’s spouse broke down and — through sobs — simply said: “Thanks for being so kind.”
