27. RADIXers, for the last time this is @akgungor_c. So, when a disaster happens, society looks for #leadership and an efficient #response. While issues related to #crisismanagement & response usually seem to be the primary reason for public outrage in the first moments,
28...it doesn’t take long for a louder contestation to emerge, this one being about causes and responsibilities: How it happened; why it happened;
what could have been done in order to prevent it, and, if it wasn’t prevented, then who is responsible?
29. Clearly, #catastrophe is a legitimacy test for the political elite, as it is for the public administration. Leaders certainly prefer avoiding such debates about their presumed irresponsibility, indifference, or lethargy but for many others, starting with victims & journalists

1/14 🆕 🚨Accelerated article on #breastcancer just out in @nature! #bcsm

We asked:
1️⃣ What drives response to #chemotherapy in #breast #cancer
2️⃣ Can we use #machinelearning to predict response to chemotherapy❓

Link: nature.com/articles/s4158…

A 🧵👇👇👇 @OncoAlert
2/14 We are unable to #predict #response to treatment in clinic…

✅Good response ➡️treatment very effective ➡️better survival
❌Poorer response ➡️treatment less effective ➡️worse survival

Being able to forecast response would be a landmark advance!
3/14 We ran a study in women with #breastcancer @CUH_NHS+@CRUK_CI:
1️⃣who had a #cancer biopsy (which we analysed)
2️⃣received 18 weeks of chemo+/-targeted therapy
3️⃣had surgery (and we measured how much cancer remained)

We associated PRE-therapy profiles↔️POST-therapy response👇

1/ We already know that nature is relentless. But it is also true that #technology can help to alleviate the most serious consequences of its onslaught
2/ That's why we don't quite agree when this @dwnews article argues that early warning systems are not valid for some phenomena such as #flashfloods dw.com/en/opinion-ger…
3/ Satellite observations such as those of @CopernicusEMS provide invaluable information, but at Arantec we believe that #earlywarningsystems gain in efficiency when the most problematic rivers are also monitored in real time

(1/12) I don’t even know where to start, but I sincerely hope @Marriott @MarriottBonvoy will listen.

Let’s begin at the beginning…🧵

March 2021, UN: "the disruption to #health services provision & access & the rising #food insecurity could lead to additional 253,500 – 1,157,000 #child #deaths & 12,200 – 56,700 #maternal deaths, globally."

"As a result of these disruptions in South Asia, #child #mortality could potentially increase by 18–40% & maternal mortality by 14–52%, over the next year."

1996, Albright: "We think the price is worth it."

2021, #Bourgeoisie, #together: "We think the price is worth it." Image
"Across #SouthAsia [], an estimated 89,434 additional #stillbirths are anticipated as a result of reduced coverage of essential *SRMNCH services.

...unsafe abortions are also expected to increase [] by more than 50%."

Two thoughts: (1) any system where information *for care* does not flow along #CarePathways is fundamentally broken. Once that DOES work properly, abstracting useful/necessary #statistics for planning & #response becomes far more possible/likely...
(2) As #COVID19 has shown, any '#MinimumCareDataset' MUST contain #operational as well as #health data - and must distinguish #health & #care too. Also, focusing just on '#datasets' is too many layers up the #stack; what about the #dictionary?
#Investment in #SocialCare as an #InformationSystem (which every complex system basically is) lags health & the NHS by 3 - 4 DECADES.

If that's not an opportunity for massive #innovation, #transformation and *avoiding past errors* then tell me what is. Allowing #BigTech et al...

Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Our letter @thetimes requesting government share scientific evidence behind #COVID19 #publichealth response to retain scientific/healthcare community, and public’s understanding, cooperation and trust @richardhorton1 @Dr2NisreenAlwan @devisridhar @PWGTennant @drannewilson 1/4
“It is imperative to #delay and ‘flatten’ the epidemic curve to ensure the #NHS can cope. This is particularly essential for the UK which according to OECD data, has 2.5 hospital beds per 1000 population- behind Italy (3.2), France (6.0) and the USA (2.8) #FlattenTheCurve 2/4

#OSHO

The moment you #renounce #responsibilities you also renounce #freedom. These are the complexities of life: freedom and responsibilities remain and go away together.

More you love freedom, more you will be ready to #accept responsibilities.
But outside the world, outside the #society, there is no possibility of any #responsibility. And it has to be remembered that all that we learn, we learn through being #responsible.
#Escaping to the #forest and the #mountains, you are simply escaping from a learning situation.

In a cave in the Himalayas you won’t have any responsibility, but remember, without #responsibility you cannot #grow; your #consciousness will remain #stuck.
