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.

Maybe you’ve heard about patients discussing breast cancer or other diseases on “chats” in social media. 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.

The growth of renewable energy continued strongly in 2014 despite the dramatic fall in the price of oil in the second half of the year, with 59% of all new power generated around the world coming from renewable sources.

The latest report from REN21, the global renewable energy policy network, shows that renewables made up an estimated 27.7% of the world’s power generating capacity at the end of 2014.

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.

ASCO proposes cancer drug scorecard, with some scary examples for Big Pharma

ASCO proposes cancer drug scorecard, with some scary examples for Big Pharma | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The American Society of Clinical Oncology promised a rating scale for cancer drugs--and now, it has delivered. Let the blowback begin.

The drug scorecard, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, is designed to simplify decision-making by boiling down available data--on survival benefits in specific types of cancer, as well as side effects--into one number. It rates treatment regimens on a 0-to-100 scale--0-to-130 in some cases, with bonus points--and the physicians' group hasn't been shy about awarding low scores.

A lung cancer cocktail that includes Eli Lilly & Co.'s ($LLYAlimta, for instance, got a big fat goose egg. A treatment combo with Roche's ($RHHBYAvastin won just 16 points in the same disease. A prostate cancer combo that incorporates Sanofi's ($SNYJevtana also racked up just 16 points.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, June 24, 12:07 PM

Una recensione del saggio di Edgar Morin "Insegnare a vivere" (2015), scritta da Mario Porro e recentemente comparsa su doppiozero. Si tratta dell'ultimo saggio che completa la trilogia dedicata da Morin all'educazione dopo:

- I sette saperi necessari all'educazione del futuro (2001)

- La testa ben fatta (2000)

Tutti pubblicati da Cortina

 

La recensione

Porro non si limita a presentare il libro ma propone un percorso attraverso la proposta educativa di Morin così come è ricavabile dalla sua triolgia partendo dal presupposto interpretativo che non si tratti di una proposta per riformare il sistema educativo e scolastico, ma di un tentativo per un radicale superamento di ersso incentrato su due questioni:

1. Che pianeta lasceremo ai nostri figli? (Jonas)

2. A quali figli lasceremo questo pianeta? (Semprùn)

 

I temi

Elenco i vari nodi e le varie problematiche toccate dall'articolo di Porro

# necessità di un connubio che superi l'ottusa contrapposizione tra scienze della natura e scienze umane e che sia fondato su una visione evolutiva

# finalità dell'educazione è avere "teste ben fatte" (Montaigne) e non piene di nozioni e saperi specialistici, capaci di affrontare in modo globale e trasversale i problemi

# rifiuto dee saperi semplificatori e dei paradigmi binari e manichei per un approccio sistemico alla complessità

# elogio dell'errore e del metodo contro ogni illusoria pretesa verità che si ponga in modo totalizzante

# sostituire alla ratio scientifica la metis e a Prometeo suo fratello Epimeteo

# assumere come fondamento della pedagogia il "Grande racconto" della scienza

# muovere verso un'etica della "comprensione umana" caratterizzata dall'apertura verso l'altro

# connettere i saperi all'esigenza di una "vita buona" nel senso di Rousseau ma anche, aggiungo io, di Socrate per cui per vivere bene non si può non filosofare

# elogio dell'eros, il sapere come oggetto di desiderio che muova dalla curiosità per aprire l'orizzonte personale

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.

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.

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.

Prescribing the right apps to the right patients | mHealthNews | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Prescriptions aren't just for medications any more.  An increasing number of doctors are prescribing apps for their patients.

But picking from a database of more than 160,000 apps – and growing – is a challenge for the time-constrained doctor.

That's where IMS Health comes in. Two years ago, the Danbury, Conn.-based mHealth developer launchedAppScript, which collates and curates the apps that doctors are most interested in prescribing. And in a deal announced last month, that platform is now available to the 225,000+ physicians on the QuantiaMD Physician Engagement Platform, giving them a means of choosing and delivering a digital prescription to a patient's mobile device within seconds.

Essere uomo o donna influenza lo sviluppo e l'impatto di certe malattie e la risposta alle cure. Eppure le donne continuano ad essere poco rappresentate nei trial clinici e nelle sperimentazioni sui farmaci. Un gap che mette a rischio la salute di tutti.
Sono le grandi escluse dalla ricerca biomedica. Assenti del tutto, o quasi, dai trial clinici, dagli studi epidemiologici, dalle sperimentazione dei nuovi farmaci. Le donne scontano un'assenza cronica in tutte le fasi della ricerca nel campo della salute.

The Architect of Germany's Third Industrial Revolution: an Interview with Jeremy Rifkin

The Architect of Germany's Third Industrial Revolution: an Interview with Jeremy Rifkin | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

On May 11 of this year, 74% of Germany’s electricity was produced from a combination of solar and wind power, driving electricity prices into the negative for much of the afternoon.

Meanwhile, in the United States, fossil fuels accounted for 67% of this country’s electricity. In the US, the chief arguments against renewable energy include: a) green energy is bad for the economy; b) green energy kills jobs; and c) green energy is expensive compared with fossil fuels.

Despite its apparent green energy handicap, Germany’s economy is still standing. With a quarter of the US population, Germany’s economy is the world’s fourth largest in terms of GDP.

The architect of Germany’s energy revolution, economist Jeremy Rifkin, argues that green energy critics have it backwards when it comes to the impact of renewable energy on economic growth. Far from annihilating the German economy, Mr. Rifkin argues that renewable energy is an essential component of a third industrial revolution that will potentially triple productivity, while slashing marginal costs. According to Mr. Rifkin, the resulting “Internet of Things” and “Collaborative Commons” that emerges from the German third industrial revolution will propel Germany’s economy well beyond countries like the United States that rely on sunset fossil fuel energies and reject investment in modern communications, energy and logistics infrastructure
