3/ Culture. "I still don’t think that the prospect of being sexually assaulted was as bad as watching the next generation of sexual harassers being formed. I think that was the worst part for me." (Nontenure-track faculty) #MeToo#MeTooSTEM#womeinmedicine#MedEd#heforshe
2/ Title IX. This article is missing information about federally mandated reporting processes and protections that legally protect medical students (and all students in the U.S.).
3/Anecdotal beliefs perpetuate harms. A physician expert states “the trainee must amass allies before lodging this complaint…” This is legally incorrect, a single report is enough to trigger Title IX and this reinforces the notion that single reports will not be believed.
In commemoration of 3 years of emailing hundreds of papers/ resources to my @OHSUIMRes ward teams & thanks to the amazing educators here and on #medtwitter#meded
My 10 greatest hits based on learner feedback:
10/ AGC “Approach to abnormal LFT” guidelines - for all those times when it’s not acute liver failure, but those LFT’s look like they need some investigating - ht Dr Jou gi.org/guideline/eval…
9/ “Normotensive ischemic acute renal failure” - can’t tell you how many times this has come in handy where I’ve slipped this to my resident, antihypertensives were backed down and a mysterious AKI disappeared; ht Dr Chiovaro nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…
This is my commentary on #twitter#movements. Before I go I want to preface this with a statement: I love humans. We're amazing creative & powerful beings. I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the hidden motivations underlying our basic need to belong. 1/
I've observed some movements taking off on Twitter. Some for #MedEd, raising awareness, knowledge sharing, inspiration and sharing failings, wounds & triumphs. Generally they support creative expression in 280 characters. Awesome! 2/
As these movements gain momentum, more people want to join in b/c #belonging. I'm seeing a disturbing trend of sharing experiences of patients/clients to promote how deep & human they are. Some are purely intended, some not. 3/
Francisomycin, my new natural anti-atherosclerotic antibiotic, has now been published in NEJM to reduce atherosclerosis by 173 arbitrary units (p=0.03).
I am really, really pleased with the result and the fact that I have the patent on this magical stuff.
What does p=0.03 mean?
A. 3% of pts had reduced atherosclerosis?
B. 97% of pts had reduced atherosclerosis?
C. If a drug is ineffective, 3% chance that it produces an effect this extreme.
D. 3% probability that THIS drug is ineffective, i.e. that these results occurred by chance
