Now that all of the Canadian networks have unveiled their primetime schedules for next season, can we talk about how utterly disappointing it is to see so few scripted Canadian TV originals on the schedules?
Other than @CBC, there are absolutely ZERO scripted Canadian originals this fall. CTV is holding both the new drama @TransplantCTV and hit series @CardinalCTV until midseason. Same for Corus with the upcoming #Nurses.
One thing I've learned covering #Cdntv over the past few years is how MUCH talent exists BTS in this industry. There are so many great voices and ideas out there just waiting to be tapped. I really wish networks would invest in that because it all has a trickle down effect too.

*THREAD* As many of you now by know, last week a sitting FG #MEP & candidate in #MidlandsNorthWest (name is disclosed this time) tried to publicly dismiss the data I presented re: our health system. I've thought about this a lot & am now asking people to #refute or #clarify ⬇️
2/ I said: "Ireland statistically has the WORST #waitinglists in Europe."
(Said MEP suggested waiting lists numbers were high because patients don't attend appointments - and that the technology to collect data could be wrong)...
3/ Throughout the meeting I said:

⛔️500,000 + people are on #waitinglists for #appointments
⛔️70,000 + await #daycase and inpatient #procedures
⛔️80,000 + women await smear test results
⛔️10,000 + patients left on #trollies incl. elderly, and children...

Citation counts come from OTHER RESEARCHERS. They are important, yes.

But, sharing #science on #SoMe=broad & instantaneous dissemination to those who focus their time AT THE BEDSIDE. Which may surprise some- but is MOST OF MEDICINE especially....#anesthesiology.(Thread) #AUA2019
A metric like the “Kardashian Index” *MAY* be relevant in genome biology where the proportion of basic/translational science is significantly higher and no immediate bedside application for a general practitioner is there. (and I’m making an assumption here) #medtwitter #aua2019
When your #research is relevant primarily to other #scientists who are also writing research papers then citation counts do more wholly reflect the paper’s impact. But in clinical research, it’s different. Bedside clinicians are looking to the literature for guidance & new ideas.

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

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

*Thread* Was at a husting today AND when I highlighted the actual #waitinglist statistics for access to #healthcare #consultants and lack of #frontlinestaff #nurses & #GPs a sitting MEP & member of one our main political parties aimed to DISMISS the data... 1/
The data I presented was not compiled by me but by many prestigious organisations who represent #nurses #doctors #midwives #consultants #pharmacists #paramedics #carers #physios #OTs (tag anyone you wish here) 2/
The response I (and the audience got) was along the lines of “with technology data can be wrong” and “people don’t turn up to appointments”. I had no hestitation in finding an example and explained just how bloody difficult it can be for the #elderly to attend clinics... 3/

I'm a nurse. I once sat with an old woman while a consultant told her she had a large suspicious mass on her kidney. I robbed desserts from another ward and made her and her daughter tea and closed the curtain around their bed when they cried together.

I once bought a dressing gown, socks and pyjamas for an elderly man with end stage dementia admitted from a nursing home. He had no family and I couldn't stand to see him day in and day out with only a hospital gown to his name.

I sat and cried with a young mother dying from cancer. She had lost her hair and she was skin and bone. Her daughter wouldnt visit her. She told me her little girl was terrified of her and wanted her old mother back. My heart broke that night and all I could do was hold her.

A friendly reminder of what an ICU (BSc RGN/ PgD ICU/ PgD CCU) nurse's near top of the scale wages looks like for 2 weeks. And if I work weekends and nights away from my child & partner I might make an extra €100.
