1.Theres a lot of debate today in the LBP field specifically & musculoskeletal pain in general about manual therapy vs exercise. Motor control vs strength training. The role of patient education, etc.
2. The issue of client preferences is a no brainer to me as I’m in the trenches & validate my clients #livedexperience. I seek interaction & collaboration. @MyCuppaJo
3. This way I’m able to guide by the side & be an Alfred rather than a “fix it” Batman Superhero for them. @jasonsilvernail @MKargelaDPT…

Important to keep in mind that #AI is made by humans. Our flaws and biases get encoded and amplified. We need the right diversity of people at the table to design and implement #ArtificialIntelliegence and #ML. #humancentereddesign for all of humanity. #design
Who determines definitions, labels of #data cut offs? Too often we get all nerdy on which variables & factors in the model. But are we even using the right data? #tech #technology types might consider reading Maya Angelou & Toni Morrison and others to think outside the box
Example: many people are interested in #SDoH #socialdeterminantsofhealth & #data for it.
Who has existing large #databases?
Banks are traditionally risk averse, block/exclude those who are labeled high risk
So can their data improve health equity?…

This is definitely a problem. There are many divides. Digital divide. Then not everyone had a credit card. Not everyone has a bank account.
22% of Americans are unbanked or underbanked.

“The events of recent months relating to COVID-19 ..have brought increased attention to the digital economy that runs on the assumption that individuals have full access to traditional banking”…
“the unbanked and underbanked ..less education or to be in a racial or ethnic minority group, according to the Fed data. Put all of these characteristics together.. those who are unbanked and underbanked... who may have historically felt shut out of traditional banking”

1/ A very compelling story about how #Women's #Pain & especially #Black women's pain is dismissed and disregarded by the healthcare system.…
2/ The story begins with a woman with sickle cell & her horrifying experience in the hospital. It also discusses pain from syndrome's unique to women, like endometriosis or fibroids.
3/ Pain is a feminist issue. #PainToo must be believed. First, there is the dismissal of women's accounts of their own bodies, tracing to a history of dismissal of symptoms due to absurd misconceived views of #Hysteria in women. Trans folks get the same treatment, or worse.

Each specialty needs a DEI Officer. One that analyzes data for bias & engages in strategic planning to augment practices to include a health equity lens. There needs to be accountability of such efforts w/ standardized metrics for providers & depts alike. Time to fix the broken.
We KNOW the problems. We’ve reported the same death rates & disparities for generations on end. We don’t need to hear more numbers. We need to implement solutions. Every single physician, nurse, & provider should have a report card giving outcomes along lines of race & gender.
The department should also have the same report card of their collective averages of those same metrics. Compare them nationally. Every quarter there should be a review. Identifications of strengths and weaknesses of the individual providers and flaws of the system.
