1. Always remember basics of infection control

2. Keep a daily diary of your experiences (if you haven’t already)

1/
The Basics

- keep hair short and tied back
- be clean shaven
- don’t wear any jewellery
- wear nothing below your elbows
- keep fingernails very short
- meticulous hand washing/cleaning

2/
- stay home if you are unwell(for any reason not just COVID19 symptoms)
- maintain physical distance at work
- talk less, be a bit quieter than usual
- maintain your energy - get enough sleep, food, rest, replenishing activity if you can
- try to smile a bit more (tough ask)

Good morning everyone, it’s @SDonatta on the account today, talking all things #research and #researchnurses alongside @HeatherB18 and @Sammycad77 join us @WeStudentNurse @WeNurses @UHBResearch #HCPnetwork #whywedoresearch
But first #tea . What’s your brew of choice?
My first job in #research was as a #clinicaltrialsassistant during my uni years and I quickly learnt it was different from the research taught at university as part of #nursing curriculum #HCPnetwork

Shared with permission.
The year: 2011. A young #Pharmacist, career-focussed, is part of a thriving business. She stands on her own two feet.

The encouragement & support from her parents is all she needs. They've always supported her. Nothing can shake her resolve. Can it?
1/
One Saturday morning she rushes down the stairs to get ready for work.

The sound hits her first.

It’s guttural. Choking. Someone can’t breathe.

She’s bleary-eyed from the long workdays, 6 days a week.

She’s not complaining. It’s necessary

2/
She steps into the bathroom & that’s where her brain tries to correlate the image with sounds.

‘Is she gargling? Is she choking?

What is her mum drinking out of a 2-litre bottle at 5am?

Why is the mouth frothy?

No answers avail themselves.

Thread for #NurseTwitter - At this point in the year, I am normally attending pinning ceremonies and welcoming new #nurses into the profession. I am often giving speeches and fighting back tears of joy as I look at the graduates on the stage. 1/4
I choke up as tears roll down my face because I know the barriers these new nurses overcame to be here at this moment. Some of them have pushed past incredible challenges. I understand that they are entering the workforce with a heart for nursing and a desire to serve others. 2/4
I will miss pinning graduates this weekend., but I do not have to miss welcoming them to the nursing profession. #NurseTwitter will you please help me congratulate our new colleagues an add some words of love, advice, and encouragement? 3/4

#medtwitter and everyone. Pls read this thread. I want ppl to know what those in #nursinghomes and #PALTC med are doing, without the recognition. For every person u save from #COVID inpatient, please know, we're working non-stop to help you, and it's taking its toll. 1/
As early as 3/1 we've shut down visitors, tried to mitigate spread. But we're not the hospital and have less resources. And hospitals rely on us to d/c patients who can't go home. We're taking your pts, knowing full well they may bee carriers of #COVID but testing was not done.2/
Simultaneously we've been forcing the hard conversations, trying to get patients/surrogates to understand the futility in #fullcode status + even hospitalization right now. Meanwhile families have not been allowed to visit in 4 wks +. Despite r efforts, #COVID is in our own 3/

1/ I have been spending most of the last 6 weeks working on population-level #covid19 response in my state.

But the days on the clinical wards are what really keep me true to the work at hand.

You have to know who you are fighting for to know what you are fighting for.
2/ Since the day I started my career as a doctor, I was struck by what really drove me back to work each day

You form a bond with your patients- & the fight you fight ends up being for those people.

You show up every day for them

That's the promise you make- the oath you take
2.5/ The stakes feel different when it is someone else's life on the line.

Someone who trusts you to do right by them- to show them compassion, to give them 110%, to treat them with kindness

These things might sound simple, but they can be easily forgotten in a fast-paced world

I do not have a big following, nor do I desire one. This needs to be widely read. Please share.

Social psychologist Dr Erich Fromm first used the term “malignant narcissism” (MN) in 1964 describing it as a severe mental disorder. He called it “the quintessence of evil."
Dr Otto Kernberg introduced the concept to psychoanalytic literature in 1984. Keep in mind as you read this, that it ALL predates the #Trump presidency and none of it is discussing him directly. Compare what you see in his behaviour. Does it comport with what is written?
Dr Robert Hare devised a test to help psychiatrists, psychologists, and physicians diagnose psychopathologies, including MN, prior to 2000. He writes:

#Collaterals In The Time of #COVID19: Perspectives from a #medstudent on her #ICU rotation. 1/8
Collateral formation is one of the more beautiful feats of the human body: when an arterial occlusion grows chronically over time, the body responds by forming collaterals, allowing the end organ to remain perfused. 2/8
This is the opposite of a blown levee or an overflowed dam, which are symptoms of insufficient preparation in the face of a massive onslaught of pressure.
#COVID19 is that pressure, and our health system can choose to build a dam or to build collaterals. 3/8

I dove into the FEC data, and it's pretty clear:

Grassroots health professional donors far prefer Sanders and Warren to Biden and Buttigieg. 1/
For doctors, donations went mostly to Warren and Sanders, with Sanders slightly receiving more.

Buttigieg received a substantial portion.

Biden received very little.

#MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter
@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie To me this corroborates the polls which show that while medical trade groups/guilds/professional societies might not support policies like #MedicareForAll, grassroots doctors feel differently. 3/

This opinion article by Douglas Makinnon is both troubling and groundbreaking. First, no one should ever condone #fatshaming - as it has been proven to be detrimental to individual struggles with #obesity and does not lead to resolution. 1/
The publication of this opinion, which “calls out” the #US government for a “waste of energy” during an #obesity crisis - #obesityepidemic is one of the few times a political publication has addressed the lack of action on resolution of this chronic diesease. @ObesityAction 2/
Despite the accusations in the article that #Physcians are NOT addressing the issue, there is a strong effort from #baraitric #surgeons and #medical #baritricians as well as advocates #RD #nurses @ObesityAction @obsmchat @ObesitySociety @OMAsocial among scores of others 3/

Some key points on party commitments on #healthcare #highereducation as indicated in their manifestos.
First, a reminder of @councilofdeans asks:
Growing #nursing workforce is central to @Conservatives :
Aside from the commitment to 50,000 more nurses that has been heavily commented on, plans include:
1. £5-8k annual maintenance grants for students
2. 14,000 new undergraduate nursing students
Still @Conservatives
3. 5,000 new nursing degree apprenticeships
4. 7,500 extra nursing associates
5. Increase NHS funding by 29% by 2023
6. No reduction of tuition fees but focus on interest rates to reduce burden on students

This is an email I received.
I have many problems with it. /thread

1. HOW IS THIS JOURNALISM?
2. WRITING A STORY AND THEN FINDING THE NEWS TO FIT IT IS NOT JOURNALISM, ITS PROPAGANDA
3. That is appalling. Secondly, a four-day week is most likely BENEFICIAL to the NHS.
- nurses already work 3/4 12 hour shifts a week, so reducing the hours would mean doing 3 a week instead of 4.

Welcome to the #Pennsylvania Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending 11/24/19.

This is where you'll find all the votes and quotes from our 18 House members as well as @SenBobCasey and @SenToomey.

And we collect all of that for our 20 PA MoCs all in one place for you.

@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics We averted a #Shutdown this week, but did so by having Congress pass a continuing resolution, aka "kicking the can down the road until the week before Christmas"
...when MoCs always make great decisions, right? (cough, #GOPTaxScam)

THREAD:#TransHealthEthicsProject interviews w/#trans folks are "thick" examples of barriers to care described generically in surveys. #doctors & #nurses often say "those patterns are terrible, but how can I know if I am doing it?" #narrativematters #bioethics #TransAwarenessWeek
I used a standardized array of interview questions across 15 hours of interviews with trans folks regarding their experiences seeking health care in the United States, both POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE, to give providers #narrative examples/guidelines on what not to do, AND what to do.
I did the interviews and my research assistants (@BreanneRBurton, Ren Czachor, Jake Richardson, and Harry Silvey) transcribed them so that no unknown persons would have access to the audio. While some participants gave permission to share audio, all permit sharing transcripts.

“Finding doctors who will treat, will prescribe, & will even look at you like a human being rather than a thing has been problematic. Have been denied care by doctors & major hospitals so much that... I never reveal my gender history.” — Survey Respondent 2/n
Nearly 1 in 5 trans folks surveyed (19 percent) reported being refused health care care outright because they were transgender or gender non-conforming.

REIHELD NOTE: this is consistent across studies, & across US and Canada. Access to care is about bias, not just systems. 3/n
