A Force For Good: The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and Healthwise Merge | Informed Medical Decisions Foundation

A Force For Good: The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and Healthwise Merge | Informed Medical Decisions Foundation | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:

he Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, the nonprofit with the world’s greatest experience in shared medical decision making, and Healthwise, the nonprofit with the world’s greatest reach in helping people make better health decisions are merging. The new organization, which will become official at closing in early April, will continue to help more than 160 million people each year to make better health decisions.

By joining forces we will help ever-increasing numbers of people become meaningfully involved in their health care decisions. Healthwise brings exceptionally strong expertise in patient engagement technologies and plain language, as well as nationwide policy leadership in health information technology. We bring equally strong expertise and leadership in clinical evidence, research and evaluation, and shared decision making policy. Our complementary strengths will provide an even stronger voice for the patient and together we will help bring about a health care system that is truly responsive to the patient’s voice.

The new Healthwise will be governed by a board of directors who bring incredible depth and breadth across health care and beyond. The 13-member board will be chaired by Peggy O’Kane, long-time CEO for the National Committee for Quality Assurance. See our full list of incoming board members.

The two organizations retain their names and areas of expertise but with a common mission—to help people make better health decisions. Don Kemper will remain CEO of Healthwsie. Michael Barry, MD, retains his title of president of the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and adds the title of chief science officer.

In the spirit of the Mayflower Compact, the two organizations signed a Compact that clearly sets the direction of the combined organization to:

inform and amplify each person’s voice,help people improve the care they provide for themselves and their families,help people set and reach health behavior goals,and advocate for public policy that supports these goals.

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are | Video on TED.com

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.
bacigalupe's insight:

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.

Dictator in the Dock | Skylight

Dictator in the Dock | Skylight | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:

Skylight filmed the entire genocide trial of Efraín Rios Montt and José Mauricio Rodríguez Sánchez from the day it started on March 19, 2013 to its conclusion on May 10, 2013.

Efraín Ríos Montt, was head of state in Guatemala for nearly seventeen months during 1982 and 1983, and José Mauricio Rodríguez Sánchez, was his chief of military intelligence.

The charges  of genocide and crimes against humanity arose from systematic massacres of the country’s indigenous population carried out by Guatemalan troops and paramilitary forces during Rios Montt’s rule during the country’s long and brutal armed conflict.

These 24 webisodes take you inside the courtroom to illuminate important highlights from this historic trial.  This is the first former head of state to face charges in a domestic court.

This trial was an important milestone in holding political and military leaders accountable for unspeakable crimes. The completion of this trial, along with the verdict and sentencing, contribute to the national acknowledgement of genocide and crimes committed against the nation’s indigenous people.

It is the first time that anyone has been tried and convicted for genocide of indigenous people, anywhere in the Americas.

In 2014 we will release a new documentary film “500 YEARS”, based on this trial. It will continue the story that began with When the Mountains Tremble in 1982, and continued with Granito: How to Nail a Dictator in 2011.

Is American Nonviolence Possible?

Is American Nonviolence Possible? | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
Facing ourselves squarely at this difficult moment might provide a better lesson for the future than allowing ourselves to once again give in to blind fury.
bacigalupe's insight:

This past week was of course a searing reminder: Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon and the ensuing manhunt that ended on Friday with the death of one suspect and the capture of another, his brother, dominated the news. But there were other troubling, if less traumatic reminders, too. On Tuesday, a 577-page report by the Constitution Project concluded that the United States had engaged in torture after the Sept. 11 attacks.  On Wednesday, a turning point in the heated national debate on gun control was reached when the United States Senate dropped consideration of some minimal restrictions on the sale and distribution of guns.  Looming above all this is the painful memory of the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Digital Dualism and the Fallacy of Web Objectivity » Cyborgology

Digital Dualism and the Fallacy of Web Objectivity » Cyborgology | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:

This brief essay attempts to link two conceptualizations of the important relationship of the on and offline. I will connect (1) my argument that we should abandon the digital dualist assumption that the on and offline are separate in favor of the view that they enmesh into an augmented reality and (2) the problematic view that the Internet transcends social structures to produce something “objective” (or “flat” to use Thomas Friedman’s term).

Analyzing Twitter Conversations from Healthcare Conferences

Analyzing Twitter Conversations from Healthcare Conferences | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:


So far this year, over 400 healthcare conferences have registered their hashtag with Symplur. It’s an amazing number! We’ve commented on the growth of Twitter use in healthcare conferences in the past, and we plan to publish some more healthcare social media analytics in the time to come. Conference organizers register their hashtags with us for several reasons, awareness in the healthcare social media community and access to some basic analytics and Twitter transcripts. Analytics are a lot of fun and we’ve observed much increased interest in what one can learn from these datasets that each conference leaves behind. From all the data we collect and analyze the question quickly becomes, “how can we present this data?” How to present the data is dependent on what questions you want answered and what story you want to tell, but the data is almost always presented in a visual form.

Coaching a Surgeon: What Makes Top Performers Better?

Coaching a Surgeon: What Makes Top Performers Better? | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
Online version of the weekly magazine, with current articles, cartoons, blogs, audio, video, slide shows, an archive of articles and abstracts back to 1925
bacigalupe's insight:

I’ve been a surgeon for eight years. For the past couple of them, my performance in the operating room has reached a plateau. I’d like to think it’s a good thing—I’ve arrived at my professional peak. But mainly it seems as if I’ve just stopped getting better.

During the first two or three years in practice, your skills seem to improve almost daily. It’s not about hand-eye coördination—you have that down halfway through your residency. As one of my professors once explained, doing surgery is no more physically difficult than writing in cursive. Surgical mastery is about familiarity and judgment. You learn the problems that can occur during a particular procedure or with a particular condition, and you learn how to either prevent or respond to those problems.

Say you’ve got a patient who needs surgery for appendicitis. These days, surgeons will typically do a laparoscopic appendectomy. You slide a small camera—a laparoscope—into the abdomen through a quarter-inch incision near the belly button, insert a long grasper through an incision beneath the waistline, and push a device for stapling and cutting through an incision in the left lower abdomen. Use the grasper to pick up the finger-size appendix, fire the stapler across its base and across the vessels feeding it, drop the severed organ into a plastic bag, and pull it out. Close up, and you’re done. That’s how you like it to go, anyway. But often it doesn’t.

Undocumented immigrant youth recount their challenges in new APA video

Undocumented immigrant youth recount their challenges in new APA video | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
In the “Undocumented Americans,” video, three youth share their experiences growing up as undocumented immigrants in the United States.
bacigalupe's insight:
Undocumented immigrant youth recount their challenges in new APA videoThree individuals who grew up as undocumented immigrants in the United States tell their personal stories in this documentary video that reinforces the need for attention to the mental health needs of immigrants.

In APA’s “Undocumented Americans,” three youths – Jong-Min, Pedro and Silvia – share their experiences as undocumented immigrants in the United States. Brought to this country at an early age by their parents, these children grew up to be American in every way, but they continue to face significant challenges due to their documentation status. APA Presidential Task Force on Immigration Chair Carola Suárez-Orozco, PhD, appears in the video to explain many of the psychological ramifications of undocumented status, such as isolation from American peers, stress in pursuing and financing higher education, fears of detention and deportation as well as the trauma of separation from family and loved ones.

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
Many people find it hard to distinguish between the two.
bacigalupe's insight:

To make strategy more interesting — and different from a budget — we need to break free of this obsession with planning. Strategy is not planning — it is the making of an integrated set of choices that collectively position the firm in its industry so as to create sustainable advantage relative to competition and deliver superior financial returns. I find that once this is made clear to line managers they recognize that strategy is not just fancily-worded budgeting and they get much more interested in it.

Obviously you can't execute a strategy without initiatives, investments, and budgeting. But what you need to get managers focused on before you start on those things is the strategy that will make these initiatives coherent. 

That strategy is a singular thing; there is one strategy for a given business — not a set of strategies. It is one integrated set of choices: what is our winning aspiration; where will we play; how will we win; what capabilities need to be in place; and what management systems must be instituted?
