An astonishing number of people believe "we" have good to excellent healthcare in the United States.

Let's talk about (and look at) lots of ways this isn't true.

And hopefully, after some of this, you'll be more motivated to support improvements to our #healthcare
Analysis of a 2015 report from the Commonwealth Fund:

"In sum, the U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world, but Americans continue to live relatively unhealthier and shorter lives than peers in other high-income countries."…
Report Highlight:
"The U.S. spends more on health care as a share of the economy — nearly twice as much as the average OECD country — yet has the lowest life expectancy and highest suicide rates among the 11 nations."

Attristés par la nouvelle de ce jour: la mort du célèbre acteur Chadwick Boseman d’un cancer du côlon,a secoué le monde
Dans notre plan quinquennal (2017-2021), nous mettons un accent particulier sur ce type de cancer.
Retour sur les infos sur le cancer du côlon ⤵️

#Thread #RDC
Le côlon est la partie de l’intestin qui fait suite à l’intestin grêle.
C’est dans le côlon que les matières fécales sont concentrées après réabsorption de l’eau et du sel, puis acheminées jusqu’à l’ampoule rectale qui assure un rôle de réservoir.

Le cancer colorectal représente, par sa fréquence, le troisième cancer chez l’homme et le deuxième chez la femme. Sa fréquence augmente après 45 ans. Il est découvert dans 73 % des cas au niveau du côlon et de la région recto-sigmoïdienne, et dans 27 % des cas dans le rectum.

We need to start talking about the real problem with #AlbertaHealthcare and why @shandro and @jkenney plans will not work, will harm patients, and will cost the system more while delivering less. MDs leaving (and they are) is not the primary problem. 1/x
The biggest issue, is that we started with too few.
I have worked all over this province, and from day one there has been a massive shortage of MDs. Where I work (rural and remote AB) the problem is most apparent. Large % of people unable to get a FM doc. 2/x
Many others driving upwards of 4 hours to see one. Those that are lucky enough to have one? Wait lists are up to 7 MONTHS. The incredible rural docs serving these communities work tirelessly. Routinely > 100 hours a week. But they are human, and can only do so much. 3/x

10 facts & myth busters!

#1 Social Distancing is not restrictive of social gatherings like malls and movies. We have expanded that to almost any contact outside of family. Each infected person infecting 3 others TIMES 15 will be close to a million infected in 2 wks.
#2 #Handwashing vs #Sanitizer
Precautions are important. The best evidenced based precaution is #Handwashing. Virus can last in surfaces and clothing upto several hours. Also hand washing, done properly is as good or better than hand sanitizers.
#3 #Highrisk groups such as health care workers should protect themselves and their families too. So, please have your own quarantine protocols at home. #Covid is the greatest leveler of mankind, and hurts everyone equally. Stay home, and if not, stay safe!

Watching #Pandemic on @CNN right now - produced in 2017 about #SARS #MERS #H1N1 #HIV & other infectious diseases...and our failure to learn from previous pandemics is concerning. #unseenenemy
Some very interesting points about the #ethics of forcible #vaccination (done in order to eradicate smallpox), the role of rumors undermining authorities, especially in the age of social media & the immediate leap to close borders after the + diagnosis of 1st #ebola case in #US.
With the 2014-6 #Ebola outbreak, I wonder what combination of the 90% mortality rate or the point of origin played in the lack of resistance to enforced quarantine for those returning from abroad?

#Covid_19 1/n: I hear the ppl with heated emotions, even if some of these tweets are no longer available. Let me clarify things. Once. Firstly, I am not from 🇨🇳. I came from a country that the WHO holds up as a gold standard for containing #COIVD19. Singapore. Why gold-standard?
#Covid_19 2/n:Because S’pore gov’t base their policies on science. One (!) case... and the entire gov’t went into action. It was the very first country to ban travelers & even TRANSITs from China in Jan. @SingaporeAir also proactively said it won’t fly to major internat’l hubs...
#Covid_19 3/n: when only a couple dozen cases have been detected. 1 dozen=12. This is responsible world citizenship.

Did China try suppressing info on the outbreak in the early days? Absolutely. This is a matter of public record. Should trade in wild-life be banned. Absolutely.

Aujourd’hui, histoire de légende à la SNCF.

Un petit lot d’anecdotes que l’on se raconte entre cheminots le soir au coin du feux.

THREAD ⤵️⤵️⤵️
Disclaimer : Tout d’abord je tiens à préciser que ces histoires ne sont pas 100% garanties.
Je les ai pas vécu personnellement. Et je ne connais pas ceux qui ont vécu la situation.
Histoire 1)

Un petit couple de vieux prends le TGV pour la capitale.
Arrivé à Paris, papi se met en quête d’un chariot porte bagage, pendant que mamie récupère la valise à l’espace « rangement » du train .
La valise est lourde, mamie a du mal.

A few words on #prevention.
When I rail against prevention, some assume I am not interested in preventing disease.
This is not true. I am.
I found this paper from @JuanGrvas et al that helps explain my tension about prevention.…
This article discusses the precautionary principle as it relates to screening and prevention of disease. Here you have 2 concepts--additive preventive measures and reductive preventive measures--taken from G Rose.
I love reductive measures. Avoidance of bad stuff--smoking, donuts, French fries, driving a car too much etc. @nntaleb calls this via negativa…

Let's remove barriers so that #PharmacyTechnicians in the UK can be trained to vaccinate, and support attainment of community immunity

Now's the time to produce a training programme & PSDs to support the delivery of this year's flu prevention plan

#vaccines #InfectionPrevention
We need to adopt QI methodology to address this #publichealth concern

The drivers are clear - this is about ⬆️ #patientsafety via #prevention

It should not be about inter-professional competition; there is enough work for everyone
It's important to #vaccinate as many people as possible to protect those who're vulnerable

Although UK flu activity levels were not high last year, impact on 2°care was high due to hospitlisation & ICU admissions

This year looks set to ⬆️ so let's be innovative w/ healthcare WF

USA: Research indicates one quarter of 12-14 year olds who died by suicide were LGBT, which is very alarming.

Suicide disparity was shown to be greater for LGBT youth at younger ages.

What can we do to reduce risk?
#LGBTQ #Youth #Suicide #Prevention
LGBT youth who died by suicide were more likely to have mental health concerns, prior suicidality, and family problems contributing to their death.

These risk factors are often related to minority stress, which show how homophobia & transphobia create hostile environments.
Lack of social support can increase LGBT youth feeling that others do not care about them.

Homophobic & transphobic victimization can make LGBT youth feel like a burden to those around them.

Hey Matt:
1. Your govt cut £700m from public health budgets, so>
2. NHS weight loss & stop smoking clinics scrapped/replaced with “apps”.
3. Biggest causes of ill health=inequality, poverty, over-work, late/inappropriate treatment. All of which your govt is worsening.
Plus your govt has singularly failed to properly regulate any of the industries that get rich off making us unhealthy, from food to road transport. It might be convenient to blame patients, especially those poor ones, for their ‘choices’, but it’s also deeply flawed, @MattHancock
Remember this, from a month or so ago? Nearly half of families can't AFFORD to follow the government's healthy eating recommendations.…

Something to consider about this bill.
“The law criminalizes misrepresentation of a caregiver's experiences and qualifications to help ensure children
are in safe hands."
This fact, all too often, will only be found out after the fact, the damage will be done.

As it is, I would think parents do reference checks before hiring a nanny, if the person has lied before, they will again.
This is yet another reason why we need
a violent felon registry, this puts the power in the hands of the people, for their safety and for the safety of their children.
Too often in #domesticviolence cases, children are involved.
According to the Childhood Domestic Violence Assoc. 5 million children witness
