🚀New Publication📚We examined the effect of telehealth expansion on counseling service-seeking intention via DiD analysis, providing support for #telehealth. We also highlighted worsened racial disparities in mental health. #TherapistTwitter…
thread (1/8) Image
Results from DiD show the shift to telehealth wasn't associated with a change in counseling service-seeking intentions among clients, both for racial/ethnic minorities and White individuals. (2/8) #MentalHealthServices #Access Image
Implication 1: no evidence suggests declines in counseling service-seeking intentions after the universal shift to telehealth around March 15, 2020. Current policies tied to telehealth should continue beyond the pandemic. @CounselingViews @ACA_CTOnline #TelehealthPolicy (3/8)

My friend @GitaPensaMD just published this brilliant piece in @TIME about the unspoken fear that is driving many docs, nurses, & other #healthcare providers out of clinical care. It’s not what you think. Take a read.…
In tandem, I learned that UCSF nurses are protesting exactly the same conditions that Gita describes: overcrowding, insufficient staffing, a place in which it is IMPOSSIBLE to provide high quality care.…
And last night I had a conversation with a non-medical friend who is experiencing the misery of emergency department overcrowding, first-hand.

I have published more case reports than most, and I get people asking me about how to do it all the time.

Here’s how to get a high quality case report published for others to see: 🧵
1.) First of all, I love these. Especially as a new clinician they helped me see the reasoning process and how care was delivered over time, which is especially helpful when you haven’t seen many patients. I’m going to focus on descriptive case reports.
2.) But what’s interesting to most? This is the crux of deciding whether to pursue publication. Sure you can present cases to others (like in our FB group or in school programs) but to get something published, it usually needs to fit in a few boxes ⬇️

Aug 2021: "#cancer care disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to 21,247 more cancer deaths in Canada in 2020-2030, assuming treatment capacity is recovered to 2019 pre-pandemic levels in 2021."

#Canada, Nov 30 2021: Lockdown measures led to 4000+ excess deaths (Deloitte/#CMA) & 500,000+ fewer surgeries (CIHI).

Not about saving lives.
"4,000 excess deaths not related to COVID19 infections" is artificially low as # is based on 5-month period (Aug-Dec 2020).

Long-term care deaths with covid as of Dec 22,2020 represented 10,247 (72%) of all deaths in Canada with Covid (14,291).

3/5 set up systems to triage,&safely see or direct pts with symptoms of covid for testing and care, train your staff, in order to keep your practice going, your staff and patients safe and try not to miss all the other stuff that people could have.

Great Service 👍🏼
One slide had me pondering,
#realDonaldTrump image flew by.
He was constructing a Wall. A Barrier where Non Americans walk into USA. No Fence, No Customs, No Declaration, No #Covid Questions.
Canada Border Closed.
I just watched this video by #realDonaldTrump which explains a lot. He talks Regulatory Reform, Property Rights, Stepping up Ventilator manufacturing and sharing with less fortunate countries. He called #COVID19 the China Virus. At the time he was mocked for this by #MSM
#Telehealth in speech #realDonaldTrump Covid-19 necessitated Distance Assessment and management of Patients by Medical Staff. No credit by #MSM . In Fact @Twitter banned him for “inciting a riot”. He did not. Why was Nancy Pelosi’s elevator unlocked? Capitol police stood back.

1/ Report on #telehealth from GAO has reasonable methods but draws the wrong, negatively skewed conclusion toward telehealth reimbursement that compromises health equity. Below is an elaboration…
2/ First, the researchers methods are reasonable. They primarily rely on CMS reports, which have limited utility given lack of granularity of those data, especially around disparities. But the researchers did supplement with interviews with providers, consumers, state leaders.
3/ Report appropriately finds that Medicare telehealth waivers resulted in increased utilization of telehealth services & provided beneficiaries access to services that would not have otherwise been available during the early days of the #COVID19. That was the point of waivers.

The folks who are anti-diversity need to update their tired playbook.

Sharing space for win-wins is not the same as hating people in a space.

Violating professional ethics by trying to diagnose via Twitter only damages own professional reputation by displaying poor judgment.
The time to have diagnosed by Twitter was here - instead of holding leadership accountable, people scrambled to put guardrails and install people to be "adults" in the room to reassure the public.

Actually don't be reassured.
Do something.…
This was time to raise alarm, not "reassure"

All of you who distribute pacifiers and those eager to be pacified killed Americans

Plus, there was utterly bad and WRONG advice from a #physician and #publichealth #leader that "no need" to think about DNRs.

Last weekend, I made a threat on the ongoing #SocialMedia shutdown in Uganda and some implications on the future of #internet & Uganda's #digital agenda.

The thread attracted a lot of engagement and questions. Tonight, I will share some final thoughts on the subject. (1)
Conceptually, social media sites are the largest on-boarding platforms for internet users in Uganda. Notably, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat attract the highest internet traffic- which drives demand for other platform services e.g Google and Zoom recently.
So- when we talk about an "open internet", we mean the FULL resources of the internet. Any encumberance on selected applications has ripple effects across the entire network thus jeorpadizing standardization of internet/data transmission which is essential for innovation & growth
