Having spent the last couple of weeks discussing composite & surrogate outcomes, I was reminded this week of the importance of thoughtful planning on the choice of outcomes in the first place 1/6
In particular I was reminded of the fundamental work of #Donabedian to conceptualise what is important to measure to assess quality of (and improvement in) health care. Although developed decades ago, it remains just as relevant today 2/6…
When we seek to assess the impact of a new intervention on care, the Donabedian model suggests there are 3 elements that may be impacted - the #structure the #process and the #outcome of care 3/6

Giving #Paracetamol in cases of mild #Viral #fever may be harmful
1. It is a common practice to give paracetamol (acetaminophen) to children or adults suffering from viral fever. Research evidence shows that we may be causing more harm than good by this practice.
2. Fever is not a disease; it is a symptom of viral infection. Paracetamol can not kill the virus.
Acute infections, including those due to Corona virus and other viruses, often stimulate a febrile response.
3. A mild fever appears to improve #outcome; as it diminishes viral replication by several mechanisms, including virion entry into host cells and genome transcription, and improving host defense mechanisms against the pathogen.

We’re EVMs used here ? Or paper ballot ?
Let me provide a background

I did an analysis of the 2014 and 2019 constituency analysis. It takes just a switch of 2.5% of votes from one candidate to another candidate implying a 5% DELTA which changes a Minority Party to a Majority Party.
I have a fundamental mistrust of anything Digital especially EVMs #regardless of the Vote #outcome

Why ? (1) I used to be a high end communication tech engineer. (2) Precisely why countries that had EVMs went back to Paper Ballot.

For the professional athlete, there IS a key difference between process and results, though.

The best summary I have read about this nuance comes from Dr. Bob Rotella in "Golf is Not a Game of Perfect."

And I want to share it with you.

A thread 🧵
"The trusting mentality is essential for getting ready to play competitively. If you want to be able to trust your swing on the golf course, you have to spend time doing it on the practice tee. Human beings are creatures of habit. They cannot, as a general rule, spend all ...
...all of their practice time in the training mentality and then switch to the trusting mentality for competition. Under pressure, an athlete’s dominant habit will emerge. ..

#Neuroscientists worldwide are increasingly studying #myelin and its amazing impact on rapid #learning, mastery, and neuroplasticity. So keep your circuits strong with deep, focused practice, but remember: #myelination requires quality versus quantity.
What Is #Myelination?
Myelination is the process of “insulating” a new neural pathway to strengthen it and to forge new default #behaviors. Heavily myelinated neural pathways are up to 300 times faster.
They’ve been optimized for speed and #efficiency. Increasing #myelination via intentional #practice helps us become more emotionally agile.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.
