🚨Oregon Habeas Press Task Force Conference Happening Right Now 🚨 Families of folks who are incarcerated sharing their loved one's stories. The conditions in Oregon's prisons are horrific and inhumane. facebook.com/ORPrisonVoices.
Folks don't have access to their meds. Someone had a seizure yesterday. People are sleeping on the floor. Being advised to vomit in their socks. Women don't have access to feminine products and bleeding through their clothes. These are just a few horrible examples.
There is serious concern for a superspreader COVID-19 event because of all of the evacuations and combining the prison populations. #MedTwitter
How you can take action? Write or call @OregonGovBrown to ask her to release the 817 medically vulnerable folks who are non-violent offenders who are due to be released within the next 6 months.

1/ #medtwitter if you care about #metoostem #meded #equity #burnout please follow along. Gender violence is pervasive in medical training.


#sciencetoo #meded #medtwitter #medtoo #timesup #beethical #heforshe #timesup
2/ “…we may hear and intimately know the experiences of gender violence, but we are unable to share. Our voices are trapped and silenced, exacerbated by the hierarchical and apprentice-based training environment.." bit.ly/2FBkNGG
3/ Over 50% of medical students experience sexual harassment from faculty and staff. The people who are entrusted to teach us how to be physicians.

1/This is an excellent example of WHY @NIH needs to change their gender violence policies. Not only was this researcher found to be responsible by civil legal standards for sexually harassing a post-doc, the uni. found him resp. for creating a hostile environment. #metoostem
2/Literally the DAY the sexual harassment settlement was reached on September 17, 2018 the university publishes a letter lauding this researcher for obtaining a $20 million grant from @NIH: bit.ly/2P97QsW #MeTooSTEM
3/ What happened to this researcher? He has to take a training on sexual harassment and might have a letter put into his HR file. He is still the director of an institute. What happened to the post-doc? She has left the university and her research has not been published.

1/ Content warning: sexual harassment and assault. The @theNASEM released a report on sexual harassment in medicine. Disturbing quotes by #womeinmedicine from the report are in this thread (17). #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #heforshe @womeninmedchat @physcianwomen bit.ly/2JzUunm
2/ Residency. "But, the thing is about residency training is everyone is having human rights violations. So, it’s just like tolerable sexual harassment." (Nontenure-track faculty) #believewomen #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #metoophd #metoomed #MedEd #sheforshe #heforshe
3/ Culture. "I still don’t think that the prospect of being sexually assaulted was as bad as watching the next generation of sexual harassers being formed. I think that was the worst part for me." (Nontenure-track faculty) #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #MedEd #heforshe

1/Yes. Thanks @LeoBeletsky and @liebschutz for the periodic reminder!

So what are some of the policy barriers and levers…
2/Although CMS requires Part D formularies to include OUD treatment, and mandate Part C Medicare Advantage to cover behav health services related to addiction services, the only FDA approved OAT meeting the Part D definition is bupe/naloxone
3/Further, if bupe/naloxone is administered in an OTP it will not be reimbursed, because an OTP is not a pharmacy, a reimbursement requirement for Part D. Same issue for methadone. Methadone is required to be OTP administered (42 CFR 8.12) it is not a qualified Part D product.

1/This article highlights an urgent need for training faculty and administrators on issues related to gender violence and discrimination in #meded. We have five concerns with the article. #metoo #meded #womeninmedicine #sheforshe #heforshe @caroline_a_king @womeninmedchat
2/ Title IX. This article is missing information about federally mandated reporting processes and protections that legally protect medical students (and all students in the U.S.).
3/Anecdotal beliefs perpetuate harms. A physician expert states “the trainee must amass allies before lodging this complaint…” This is legally incorrect, a single report is enough to trigger Title IX and this reinforces the notion that single reports will not be believed.
