1/ #Facebook released their #Libra #cryptocurrency whitepaper today. This is a stable coin governed by a Foundation that is comprised of a handful of the world’s largest corporations
2/ The currency will run on the Libra #blockchain and coins will be backed by assets consisting of bank deposits and government securities that will be issued by the Libra Reserve whose members each invested a minimum of $10M to run a validator node
3/ This pseudo #decentralization is not being brought into the world to ‘empower billions of people’ or ‘help people everywhere live better lives’ as Facebook suggest

1/ There’s no debate- #palliativecare doesn’t hasten death, in fact for cancer pts it prolongs life. Even #palliative sedation doesn’t hasten death! The myth that a palliative approach shortens life (e.g. via opioid use) and is “giving up” is something we combat everyday.
2/ These “palliphobias” can lead to delayed symptom management, prognostication and advance care planning- this problem is very dangerous and pervasive, whether the patient wishes to die via #MAID or not. Not at all against #MAID at all but it does differ in intent.
3/ Anecdotally- have had several cases where well-meaning specialists didn’t recognize #palliative needs early. By the time we saw it was too late to request MAID, pt had lost capacity and had suffered greatly. No one had talked about EOL planning before me! #hpm
