I just lost 20 minutes in my EMR to prescribe a grape popsicle for a patient.

Yes, I have to prescribe popsicles.

Yes, they are in EMR.

Yes, I can prescribe different routes for the popsicle (including intraocular).

With health as a common good, and care as a human achievement, healthcare data and the means to draw knowledge from it must be public goods; no entity should be allowed to privatize these, limit access, and create false scarcities for their own profit.

First #Ebola vaccine approved in #Europe today. Meanwhile in #Congo #DRC the Ebola epidemic goes on: more than of 3000 cases, more than 2000 deaths. What is going wrong?

Come contrastare, anche tramite l’ascolto, fuga da terapie salvavita verso ciarlatani e improvvisatori della c.d. medicina alternativa. Esiste una sola #medicina, basata su evidenze scientifiche, giudizio del curante e valori del paziente

Great to see Andy Oxman present on the amazing work he and others are doing to teach kids to spot dubious health claims.

“Simple blood test for early detection of breast cancer”? Not so simple. Not so fast. @mcjaklevic & sources dismantle preliminary hype.

Medical publishing awash in fake journals producing big profits publishing fake papers. Nothing more absurd/cynical than Elsevier starting new fake journal “Biomarkers in Psychiatry” when 40 yrs intense research haven’t found any. Each new journal degrades noise/signal ratio.

Early interventions for people at risk of developing psychosis | Cochrane - “no high-quality evidence to suggest that any type of treatment is effective, and no firm conclusions can be made.”

“On balance, the EMR is vastly superior to the paper chart, but the EMR has decisively realigned how doctors and patients connect. The twosome is now a threesome. As with any ménage-à-trois, there are always consequences...”

Dall’inizio dell’anno quasi 60 agenti delle forze dell’ordine si sono suicidati: è un massacro silenzioso che racconta la situazione di malessere di decine di migliaia di agenti che 99 volte su 100 ogni giorno sono vicini ai cittadini in momenti di tensione e stress.

Canada has some medical marketing for fringe stuff; ie: “facelift medicine” or “executive checkups” but you won’t see hospitals, cancer care centres or anything essential being advertised here. There is no ‘market’ to market for anything lifesaving...

700 docs wew paid >1 million; 2500 paid >500k by drug & device companies. It’s not a badge of honor to say “we work with many companies & therefore we have COI.” Say No to significant COI.
