Raising alcohol prices may curb binging | The Gazette | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

A new study from the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse has three key recommendations to reduce risky drinking, including a minimum price for alcohol in Canada. The study recommended prices be based upon three principles—index alcohol prices to inflation, base prices on alcohol content to encourage lower strength products and focus on minimum prices to remove inexpensive sources preferred by youth.

The New Cancer Survivors

The New Cancer Survivors | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Extraordinary advances have turned cancer from an apparent death sentence into a manageable chronic illness for many. But what does it mean to live with a terminal disease...interminably?  Brad Slocum wasn’t too concerned when, at 46, he started noticing blood tainting his urine. He knew this was a common occurrence among athletes and other vigorous exercisers, and he had always been one of them. In high school and college he was a competitive wrestler.

How has nursing changed and what does the future hold?

How has nursing changed and what does the future hold? | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Edna Astbury-Ward, registered nurse and senior lecturer, University of Chester:The need for nurses today to be highly trained, well-educated, critical thinkers is a requirement enabling them to make complex clinical decisions that 50 years ago would almost certainly have been made by doctors.
Helen McCutcheon, Florence Nightingale school of nursing and midwifery, King’s College London: As the population’s healthcare needs have changed, so too has the scope of practice for nurses and midwives. This has required a change in education and training to ensure that nurses and midwives can take on new and complex roles.

Nabokov’s America - The New Yorker

Nabokov’s America - The New Yorker | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

On February 3, 1954, Vladimir Nabokov wrote to James Laughlin, the founder of New Directions, “Would you be interested in publishing a timebomb that I have just finished putting together? It is a novel of 459 typewritten pages.” The novel was “Lolita,” the tale of a middle-aged pedophile’s sexual exploitation of a twelve-year-old girl, and Nabokov’s description proved accurate. The book would not find an American publisher for almost five years, after threats of banning the book and imprisoning its author and publisher had abated. When “Lolita” finally did appear in America, in November, 1958, it indeed detonated like a time-delayed explosive: it drew an outraged review by the lead critic of theTimes, Orville Prescott, who called it “repulsive …highbrow pornography,” and became an instant best-seller, breaking the record for one-week sales set by “Gone with the Wind.

The university plans to charge employees who refuse to submit to health screenings an extra $100 a month for their health care benefits. But some employees object, saying the university should encourage workers to be healthy rather than penalize those who don't want to participate in the new program.

PowerPoint Design Tips | 5 Presentation Tools That Will Make Your Slides Stand Out | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Like an elegantly crafted ham sandwich, cheeseburger, or croque monsieur, a good PowerPoint presentation is filled with yummy details that accentuate your talking points and keep your audience perked up and salivating to learn more.

This is why it’s so important to consider not only the content of your presentation, but also the way in which it is presented. Ever endure a monochrome presentation at a conference before? Even if it was about an interesting topic, chances are that you probably felt bored within a couple minutes. A well-thought out presentation design will make a ton of difference in captivating your audience and ensure that you don’t hear snoring during your presentation.

As the Smart Cities initiative launches in India, local projects bridging new technologies and community voices will be especially important. 

In its bid to transform the country’s urban landscape, the Indian government will launch the 100 Smart Cities program this month, aiming to bring about efficient and reliable infrastructure and services, enhanced quality of urban life, and economic opportunities for residents in selected cities.

Information and communications technology solutions have inevitably emerged as key tools required for the transformation. And given the complexity of urban governance in many cities, local projects that bridge new technologies and community voices will be especially important.

Reading List: Using Social Media for Research Collaboration and Public Engagement

Reading List: Using Social Media for Research Collaboration and Public Engagement | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The bulk of discussion around why academics use social media primarily focuses on social media as a dissemination strategy to get more citations and views of scholarly articles. But social media has also opened up new and exciting ways for researchers to collaborate online. Following an exchange on Twitter, we volunteered to pull together a reading list of posts on how researchers are using social media for collaboration and public engagement purposes. Social media use in academia is a highly active and changing landscape. The posts we’ve compiled here fall under four main themes: why researchers are using social media, digital strategies for capturing the value of social media, critical engagement with the challenges emerging, and a list of our best social media how-to guides for professional development and collaboration.

Instead of dispensing chips and candy, vending machines at Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI) offer balanced meals.Employees say they taste great, but they are also helping lower health insurance premiums; making the initiative a win-win for LHI. Every day, Waterfront Restaurant Chefs chop, clean, mix and plate five star meals.

"Right now we have mustard and fennel crusted pork tenderloin, we also have a walnut chicken salad,” said Libby Spirer, the operating partner at the Waterfront Restaurant.

Being an abortion doctor has taught me a lot about life

Being an abortion doctor has taught me a lot about life | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

I’ve learned from the women I care for that it’s never an easy decision and I’m grateful I can help them at a difficult time. I slip out through the back door of the clinic, cut through the car park and cross to the far side of the road. I pick intently at the angry blisters emerging on the thumb and index finger of my operating hand, then shift my concentration to rummaging in my bag for my phone. Anything to avoid catching the eye of the protestors gathering on the opposite pavement, brandishing their gruesome placards of foetal parts.

Aspiring doctors at the University of Chicago are learning how to teach patients about healthy eating. Nutrition advocates say this kind of training is critical to fighting obesity and diabetes. 

When it comes to premature death and disease, what we eat ranks as the single most important factor, according to a study in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association. Yet few doctors say they feel properly trained to dispense dietary advice. One group, at least, is trying to fill that knowledge gap.

Don't Exercise With Co-Workers or Clients

Don't Exercise With Co-Workers or Clients | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

We e-mail from our beds, tote our laptops home for the holidays, and ensure the ski cabin has Wi-Fi. The only time we’re ever untethered is at the gym, when our smartphone’s in the locker and our mind’s consumed with not falling off the treadmill. Working out is our last respite from our colleagues, the one place we are truly alone.

It used to be, at least. Group fitness programs such as Physique 57, Barry’s Bootcamp, and CrossFit, not to mention countless peppy cycling studios, have outpaced the megagyms of the last decade, and their emphasis on community and team building has bled into the corporate sphere. “Salespeople have stopped winning clients with a four-course dinner or hours of drinks,” says Gabby Etrog Cohen, the director of marketing at SoulCycle spinning studios. “Instead, they just book a class.”

Patient engagement is in search of a definition

Patient engagement is in search of a definition | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Ask anyone connected with health care these days to provide a definition for patient engagement and you will likely receive as many answers as there are agendas surrounding the discipline.

While patient engagement has evolved as a critical strategy in support of the ultimate goal of creating improved health for a total population, you would think that a mandate for a unified definition would be embraced by all involved. Yet it is not.


Not unlike the lack of interoperability guidelines established for HITECH — six years and 29 billion dollars ago — patient engagement sits at a tipping point of being the next commercially controlled and competitively dysfunctional process in a health care system where patients, providers, and payers cannot afford another misstep.

Whether you are fluent in the language of Twitter or not, the thousands of people who meet on that social media platform on a weekly basis are an important trend. They don’t just talk about cancer, but diabetes, mental illness, and hundreds of other health issues.

11 Differences Between Busy People vs Productive People | atoz2u Blog

11 Differences Between Busy People vs Productive People | atoz2u Blog | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

5. Busy people keep all doors open. Productive people close doors
As a young person it is good to open options. It is good to want to travel, to learn languages, to climb mountains, to go to university, to work in tech, to live in another country. However, there comes a point in life where one must let go of most options and focus. If my goal this year is to learn spanish – I will speak spanish at the end of the year. If my goal this year is to speak spanish, earn 30% more, travel to 10 countries, get fit, find a girlfriend, go to all the concerts… I will not speak spanish at the end of this year.

9. Busy people respond quickly to emails. Productive people take their time
Email is a handy list of priorities. The problem: they are other people’s priorities, not yours. If you respond to every email, you are dividing up your life into a thousand tiny bits that serve other people’s priorities.

Plus d’un Français sur deux utilise Internet pour s’informer sur des questions de santé (1). Cet accès à l’information contribue à modifier profondément la relation médecin-patient, faisant désormais du patient un acteur à part entière. Aujourd’hui, les savoirs sont partagés, les patients davantage impliqués dans la prise en charge de leur santé et la relation soignant-soigné plus équilibrée. Une approche positive qui ouvre un espace d’échange et dans lequel un réel partenariat devient possible.  - See more at: http://www.lequotidiendumedecin.fr/actualites/article/2015/06/25/portrait-de-patients-internautes_762741#sthash.w832KsrI.dpuf
