I want to put a 🙌 out to #MedTwitter

I may not tweet a lot but I do follow and gain quite a bit so I want to share how it has changed the way I carry myself and provide care.

It’s a thread.
Patient asks the case manager when the doctor is going to see him

I spent 30 minutes updating him earlier that day 🤔

Pre-twitter: ok
Post-twitter: Sir, I’m in charge of your care, tell me a bit more about why you didn’t think I was your doctor.

Overhear the nurses talking about a patient who made a veiled but serious threat to them during the course of care.

Pre-twitter: I’m sorry.
Post-twitter: 😠 that’s not OK. How can I support you?

#MedTwitter #NurseTwitter
Young patient with substance abuse problem w/medical complications requiring hospitalization.

Pre-twitter: ok, tx, social work
Post-twitter: let’s talk SDOH and maintenance tx. We can figure out plan to address your trauma and your illness.

#SDOH #medtwitter
Busy day on service with multiple meetings and deadlines.

Pre-twitter: ok, push through
Post-twitter: ok, what can I prioritize and delegate and accept help on

#burnout #MedTwitter
Have a poster presentation at national conference

Pre-twitter: use same old format and stress about the figures endlessly
Post-twitter: #BetterPoster my way to an awesome poster session

#MedEd #MedTwitter
Wow, that person/group is doing cool stuff (research, teaching, advocacy)

Pre-twitter: look up pubs
Post-twitter: follow and learn


@CincyIM @DrDanSchumacher @alvinseattle @JulieSilverMD @aoglasser @dr_uche_bee @meganranney @choo_ek
Someone suggests tramadol for acute pain

Pre-twitter: ok, not my typical go to but let’s see
Post-twitter: pull up and share the @DavidJuurlink #tweetorial on tramadol

Have a patient with opportunity for team to learn EBM

Pre-twitter: uptodate, pubmed articles to share with learners

Post-twitter: find @tony_breu tweetorial or #TWDFNR article from @JHospMedicine or recommend @thecurbsiders podcast on topic
Obviously there are additional factors that have led to my growth.

But there are so many more examples of impact.

The #medtwitter community is pretty awesome and with the right follows cultivates #growthmindset and #humility and #curiosity

🙏 to all who contribute
And of course, 🙌 to @carolinemilneMD for convincing me to join.

I look forward to recruiting more residents into #MedTwitter (already set up @seanbernfeld!)
