Did you miss this week's #WASHDriversHangout with @Temple_Oraeki? No worries. Here are the highlights.
A Society is only as healthy as it's most vulnerable member. Access to water in unequal, yet we're all vulnerable @NGRPresident @sanwatforall @ClimateWed
#COVID19 #PTFCOVID19
According to @WaterAidNigeria, over 50 million Nigerians lack access to clean water. #handwashing is an impossible task for majority these. @Temple_Oraeki shared some #palliative measures to make water a priority. #WASHDriversHangout #coronavirus #Sdg6 #leavenoonebehind
#Covid_19, especially the emphasis on hand washing, is offering developing countries an opportunity to restore/invest in public water systems. This is a huge project, but NOW is the time to ACT. #EndWaterPoverty #ClaimYourWaterRight #COVID19Response #SDGs #Sdg6 #Water

Wrote this piece with the help of a great team including @DrKevinHill. Below I'll share some of my thoughts about #opioids and opioid use disorder and how they present in #hpm and #palliative care, plus why we need to do a better job of addressing #addiction at end of life. 1/x
2/x Training in #KY gave me a front row seat to the #opioidcrisis. With an interest in #hpm I kept wondering what would happen to these individuals who developed an OUD and years later were prescribed opioids. How would I keep those patients safe and manage their pain?
3/x I continue to think that our field will struggle in years to come when survivors of the #opioidcrisis age, develop serious illness, and develop pain. Thinking about this, and reading @jeff_deeney article in @TheAtlantic theatlantic.com/health/archive… made me want to do more.

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

1/ There’s no debate- #palliativecare doesn’t hasten death, in fact for cancer pts it prolongs life. Even #palliative sedation doesn’t hasten death! The myth that a palliative approach shortens life (e.g. via opioid use) and is “giving up” is something we combat everyday.
2/ These “palliphobias” can lead to delayed symptom management, prognostication and advance care planning- this problem is very dangerous and pervasive, whether the patient wishes to die via #MAID or not. Not at all against #MAID at all but it does differ in intent.
3/ Anecdotally- have had several cases where well-meaning specialists didn’t recognize #palliative needs early. By the time we saw it was too late to request MAID, pt had lost capacity and had suffered greatly. No one had talked about EOL planning before me! #hpm
