Every summer my heart is heavy with memories of a time when I even came close to leaving #medicine-when career & motherhood collided and I didn’t ask for help.

I want to share that story in case it helps even 1 person.(Thread) #medtwitter #meded #womeninmedicine #TipsForNewDocs
I share this now because July is full of #tipsfornewdocs but August comes & we all get swallowed up in the hustle & bustle of heavy clinical loads- when orientation ends and the real work begins.
I had just finished #pediatric residency and started #anesthesia residency with a 6 month old baby. Orientation was over & we were deployed to do our first cases in the OR without an attending always in the room with us.

The #UKGovernment #Torture Report. Instead of addressing it, they keep trying to frame us. We want answers! @10DowningStreet

The short outline version is as below in this thread. It's still quite long because it started in 2006 & the UK Authorities, mainly the #MetPolice, have invested a lot of time & resources in trying to get rid of this problem by hook or by crook
#bbcnews #royalfamily
It started with the #MetPolice being caught out falsifying paperwork - a search warrant. When caught out they tried to frame me for a crime I did not commit. #bbcnews #royalfamily #Metpoliceuk

(01/42) Glad to be a part of #HCTwitterConf19 today! Hi, I'm Sherri Helwig - @CanadianAAAE President, faculty at the University of Toronto Scarborough @UTSC @UofT and Queen's University @queensu - here to expound a bit about better connecting academia and practice in my field.
(02/42) My field is arts management (aka arts admin, cultural mgt, etc.), a relatively young area of study about work that was "professionalized" only in the last 3/4 century or so - though I suspect and hope the ideas here are relevant and applicable in many areas of #HigherEd.
(03/42) In other professional disciplines (#law, #medicine) there is a rich tradition of sharing innovations across the divide. In #business there are academic journals, practice-based materials, & important resources that span them like The Harvard Business Review @HarvardBiz.

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

SHARE AND BE PROUD.
1)Let's talk about #Mathematics 1st
i)"0" :- one of the most important inventions of all time. Aryabhata invited the "0" 1st.The concept of zero and its integration into the place-value system also enabled one to write numbers, no matter how large, by using only ten symbols.
2)ii) Decimal System:- Hindus gave Decimal system. This system made the uses of arithmetic in practical inventions much faster and easier.

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.”

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

1/15
2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

On a serious note:
Tuesday is my father's 2nd yahrzeit
Sunday 4/21 was the 2y anniversary of his death.

In reflecting back, I have some thoughts for #medtwitter, #Jews and the general public...
1/

#death #dying #grief #PalliativeCare #medicine
1. Condolence notes just need to say, "I am thinking of you" or "I was sorry to hear your news" or "I am sorry for your loss."

Don't overthink it, and don't offer false platitudes. Send your note or make your call, and the person who is #mourning knows you care.
2/
2. Show up.
For #shiva, for #kaddish. The first week, there's a lot of people around in a #Jewish house of mourning. Then everyone goes home, and we are left alone.
Offer to go to lunch. Bring dinner. Take a walk.
Join us in shul. Kaddish that first time in services was hard.

I’m LJ, a UK Respiratory doctor & medical education enthusiast. I’m here to share my experience of creating respnetlondon.com #RespEd #RespisBest #MedEd #FOAMed #PressEdConf19 /1
UK medical doctors in training must navigate a complex landscape of changing accreditation requirements. Vital information is often dispersed across multiple emails & websites e.g. JRCPTB & PGMDE #RespEd #MedEd #PressEdConf19 /2
I built Respnet as a practical way to centralise information, but also to inspire #trainees & create a sense of belonging. Belonging, connection & community are important for motivation, fulfilment & #wellness, & help prevent #burnout. #RespEd #MedEd #PressEdConf19 /3

"This free AI reads X-rays as well as doctors."
No, it doesn't! The first image I uploaded was an image of an apical pneumothorax from the web, and it completely missed it. This isn't something you want to miss.
snip.ly/quakd3 @FastCompany #radiology #AI
The creator's intention is a good one, but this type of headline is both inaccurate and dangerous. #DeepLearning has a lot of great potential in #medicine, but we have to be careful not to overhype #AI. Oh, btw, this patient does not have cardiomegaly. #radiology #ImagingAI
To be fair, the authors in the original article (arxiv.org/pdf/1901.11210…) do not claim to be as good as or better than radiologists but rather to "augment" or "assist" them. Good: they show potential for an #AI solution with minimal computational cost while preserving pt privacy.

Relevant context: In the April 1910 issue of the journal @sciencemagazine, the #American #historian of #medicine Fielding Hudson Garrison writes: "Kircher's "Scrutinium pestis," one of the acknowledged landmarks in medical #progress, was published in #Rome in 1658, at least

.. seventeen years before #Leeuwenhoek's discovery of the #infusoria (1675) and twenty-five years before his #RoyalSociety paper on the #microorganisms found on the teeth (September 17, 1683); so that making every allowance for the skill and proficiency of #seventeenthcentury

.. #opticians in grinding and polishing #lenses, the question whether #Kircher's lenses were better or worse than #Leeuwenhoek's is one of those "improbable problems" that each one can settle according to his personal preferences. No one will deny that Kircher saw some minute

Former @SyracuseU faculty member Julia Ganson thinks we should teach our kids about the "good work of #Hamas."
At the same event, @AvaCarmeli suggests violence against innocent people could be a legitimate response to #Zionism.
Pat Carmeli, member of @SyracuseU's Peace Council, quotes terrorist apologist @normfinkelstein -- "Palestinians have the right to use violence... #Israel has no right to use violence."

@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz Set up ways to continue dialogue with @NIHDirector & committee–ongoing conversation & input. Action plan before you leave. Also make clear any further delays are unacceptable. Action plans, strong regulations/policies must be instituted immediately. Petition is excellent example.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector 1- Many excellent thoughts/suggestions in thread. We thought a list of comments/support/urgency from many sectors may be useful. Concerning that @NIHDirector has not made clear, active efforts to stop #SexualHarassment by @NIH grant holders while @NSF & other orgs have.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector @NIH @NSF 2- Why isn’t #SexualHarassment a top #NIH priority. Why the resistance to actively creating strong policies against #SexualHarassment to protect #WomenInMedicine #WomenInScience #WomenInSTEM #WomeninEngineering, even when called out repeatedly by many. What’s the real issue here?

@RichDuszak 1- MT @Aiims1742 “This @katekelly article reads like a paid infomercial for EPIC (in fact, I actually looked for the “This is an advertisement” disclaimer). Would have been nice to have interviewed one or two end users of the chocolate factory product.”

@RichDuszak @Aiims1742 @katekelly 2- Nice digs, clever marketing spin, BUT Epic highly disliked by users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships w #patients, #ptexp, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @JackMurtha hcanews.com/news/ehrs-are-… @BarbaraMcAneny @meggerber

OK. So there's a piece (no paywall) on @JAMA_current today by Freddy Abnousi (head of #healthcare @facebook), @hmkyale, +@DrJRums "Social Determinants of Health in the Digital Age: Determining the Source Code for Nurture." jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… #cyberwoke /1
Before you think this is any kind of good news, remember that @Facebook has successfully incinerated democracy in several places, in the process turning all of us into meat puppet data cash machines (we don't get the cash) and now ... #cyberwoke /2
In addition to knowing where we are, who we're with, what we like, and what we think, they want our health data? How big of a FUCK NO, NO WAY, OMFG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EVERLOVIN' MIND will we have to raise to kill this? #cyberwoke /3
