Edgeryders as an engine of collective intelligence | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

We in Edgeryders do a great many things with technology, lifestyle, politics and just plain fun.  But where does it all go? Since we have no hierarchy and no formalized goals, it is not clear in which direction our activities and interactions are taking us. I am seeing a pattern. I think we are on our way to becoming the first-ever community to develop its own collective intelligence based on a proper data strategy. Let me unpack this statement.

Doc, the Internet says I have cancer

Doc, the Internet says I have cancer | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The Internet is creating new-age hypochondriacs, an all-India doctors’ survey reveals


A recent survey, conducted across 27 cities including Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad revealed that doctors have been struggling to deal with patients who use the internet to find out what ails them.

Making matters worse are hundreds of thousands of online forums where people discuss their ailments and symptoms, which often result in patients indulging in self-medication, and also end up arguing with doctors upon being told that their ailmentisnotevenclosetotheworsediseasestheyhad imagined, said majority of the 650 doctors who participated in the survey.

The doctors, including specialists and super specialists, termed people's increasing dependence on the internet to find medical cures and search for symptoms as a "major strain on the doctor-patient relationship".

Overloaded with information 
Forty-four per cent of the 650 doctors surveyed said that most of their patients were "overloaded with information", while 37 per cent doctors were of the opinion that their patients considered themselves "medical experts" after reading about the ailments on the internet.

As many as 38 per cent of the doctors surveyed said that majority of their patients who participated in online forums to discuss their ailments were "grossly misinformed" about the symptoms.

Dr Pratit Samdani, a general physician at the Breach Candy Hospital said he often comes across patients who imagine the worst after an online search of the ailments.

"One of my patients, a woman in her 30s, was convinced she was suffering from lung cancer. She had been coughing incessantly, and obviously the internet search said it was the most basic symptom of lung cancer. She assumed the worst, but it turned out to be a very minor infection," he said.

Dr Bharat Shivdasani, a cardiologist at Jaslok Hospital, said that it becomes difficult to convince patients who are loaded with "internet information". He said,"A few weeks ago,a man in his 40s visited me for consultation. He was convinced that he suffered from a heart ailment only because he was experiencing pain in left arm. When I told him that was not the case, he ended up arguing with me."

Samdani termed the internet a "medical menace", saying the woman who had assumed she was suffering from cancer insisted on undergoing a series of tests. "I spent an hour trying to convince her that she didn't need to undergo the tests. Internet cannot diagnose ailments or treat anyone," he said.

The survey, conducted by Ipsos Healthcare and Ruder Finn, an international public relations firm, aims to educate people on the dangers of 'over-information' when it comes to ailments. One such victim of medical overload, Dahisar resident Vikas Vyas, said he recently spent sleepless nights assuming the worst of diseases after searching the causes of throat pain on the internet.

The curse of internet 
Out of the 650 doctors surveyed, 44% said their patients were "overloaded with medical info gathered online". Thirty-seven per cent doctors said that many of their patients think of themselves as medical experts.

Fifty per cent of the doctors surveyed said internet has made their interaction with patients "difficult".

Evidence based medicine: a movement in crisis?

Evidence based medicine: a movement in crisis? | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
  •  Evidence based medicine: a movement in crisis?

I have three criticisms of Greenhalgh et al’s interesting article (1).

First, it conflates two issues in an unhelpful way. The first is their main topic, EBM and the many pitfalls which make it difficult for clinicians both to get high-quality evidence and to use it in discussions with patients. The second issue is the whole enterprise of prevention or risk reduction, which began decades before EBM was invented, in a shift to ‘surveillance medicine’(2, 3) which extended medicine’s remit to include people who feel well . It is this enterprise which is often in tension with a patient-centred focus (4, 5), not the evidence which nowadays underpins it.

The limits of palliative care -Graham Winyard - bmj

Patients wanting the sort of open discussion about their impending death that Boyd and Murray advocate will have one topic denied them; taking their own life should palliative care prove ineffective.1 This option is important because the medical literature demonstrates clearly the limits of even the best palliative care.2 The medical and religious establishments accept this but contend that the suffering of a small number of individuals is a necessary price to pay to protect the vulnerable.

The science and art of combining evidence with opinion - Marchildon et al. 18 (5): 161 - Evidence-Based Medicine

Abstract

In the policy environment, the news media play a powerful and influential role, determining not only what issues are on the broad policy agenda, but also how the public and politicians perceive these issues. Ensuring that reporters and editors have access to information, that is, credible and evidence-based is critical for stimulating healthy public discourse and constructive political debates. EvidenceNetwork.ca is a non-partisan web-based project that makes the latest evidence on controversial health-policy issues available to the Canadian news media. This article introduces EvidenceNetwork.ca, the benefits it offers to journalists and researchers, and the important niche it occupies in working with the news media to build a more productive dialogue around healthcare.

The End of 'Genius' - New York Times | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

But the lone genius is a myth that has outlived its usefulness. Fortunately, a more truthful model is emerging: the creative network, as with the crowd-sourced Wikipedia or the writer’s room at “The Daily Show” or — the real heart of creativity — the intimate exchange of the creative pair, such as John Lennon and Paul McCartney and myriad other examples with which we’ve yet to fully reckon.

Why Communicating With Patients Using Social Media is a Good Idea

Why Communicating With Patients Using Social Media is a Good Idea | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Most companies have a Facebook or twitter page; medical practices should also communicate with their patients using social media. The medical field has been less proactive when it comes to maintaining a social media presence. It’s an effective way to make sure your practice is branded in your specific field of expertise. Don’t overlook social media as a great way to communicate with your patients. People are looking for doctors who care and take time to get know their patients, this is where social media can shine.

Communicating with patients using social media creates a personal connection without having an appointment. Create a discussion on your facebook page where people can go to get answers to common questions regarding scheduling or areas of expertise within your practice. The way you respond to questions or complaints can carry a lot of weight; if people see that you take concerns seriously and respond in a timely fashion to requests it shows you care.

Social media is an easy way to get a message out to your patients. Post reminders about flu shots or sports physicals, whatever your specialty might be. Show your support for the local charities and fund drives you participate in. Ask your followers to fill out a patient survey, introduce new staff, link to beneficial health articles. Utilize social media as a new way to get important information to your patients. It’s a fast and free way to get important information and news to your patients.

Having a good social media presence will draw new patients in. It makes you easier to find and many potential new clients do their research for medical recommendations online. The reputation of a medical practice can be influenced by social media which is a good reason to learn how to manage yours.

Doctors should consult patients before imposing non-resuscitation notices unless it would cause harm, Court of Appeal rules

An NHS trust breached a patient’s human rights when doctors placed a “do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation” (DNACPR) notice on her records without her knowledge, the Court of Appeal has ruled.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust violated Janet Tracey’s right to respect for her private life in not discussing the decision with her, declared three senior judges headed by the Master of the Rolls, Lord Dyson.

“A DNACPR decision is one which will potentially deprive the patient of lifesaving treatment,” said Dyson. “There need to be convincing reasons not to involve the patient.”

The BMJ is wrong: doctor assisted dying would overmedicalise death

The BMJ has decided to support the Assisted Dying Bill.1 This is a mistake.

Medicine wields at once too much power and too little. We are rather impotent, for example, around social inequalities.2 Despite evidence that financial gradients make health worse, we lack the clout to influence government policy to tackle them. Yet, on the flipside, medical power can be exerted firmly in places where a much lighter touch would have been far better.
