That’s Hysterical: A Short History of Sexism in Medicine—And Hope for the Future | Narrative Health | Scoop.it
Full disclosure: I’m partial to female physicians, at least when it comes to women’s health. After all, would you go to an ear doctor who doesn’t have ears? Some of my bias stems from the fact that, historically, male doctors have doubted everything from PMS to the pain of childbirth, going so far as to…

Life Sciences Discovery Fund

Dena Rosko's insight:

Excerpt | The Life Sciences Discovery Fund supports innovative research in Washington state to promote life sciences competitiveness, enhance economic vitality, and improve health and health care.


Action | The WA Senate sent the wrong message when they voted to eliminate the Life Sciences Discovery Fund (LSDF) in their supplemental budget proposal. Cutting millions of research dollars across the state – including an $11 million cut to the UW – is bad for our state, our citizens and our economy.

Click here (http://bit.ly/Nteg2e) to send a message to your legislators TODAY - it takes just 30 seconds, no password required. Urge the Legislature to pass a budget that restores funding to the LSDF.

Since 2005, LSDF grants have:

Resulted in $450 million in additional research dollars flowing into the state.Saved an estimated $67 million in unneeded health care costs – resulting in a seven-fold return on the original LSDF investment.Created over 3,000 jobs and one billion dollars in economic activity.Lead to some 33 startup companies.

patient-centered communications
Dena Rosko's insight:

Excerpt | "Effective communication is critical to the successful delivery of health care services. The Joint Commission supports a number of efforts to improve communication between health care professionals and patients. It’s been estimated that there are more than 300 languages spoken in the United States and more than 90 million Americans have low health literacy, meaning they have difficulty understanding and using health information. The Joint Commission recommends an approach to communicating health information that encompasses language needs, individual understanding, and cultural and other barriers..."

The HIV/AIDS epidemic created a new context for the pharmaceutical

Dena Rosko's insight:

Excerpt | "Initiating and maintaining continuous change in an organization requires a foundation of stability. Understanding that paradoxical statement is crucial. Put another way, managing continuous change is not the same as managing a project or an individual change program; it is a capacity that gets built into organizations over the long term, allowing them to deal on an ongoing basis with environmental shifts, new competitors and disruptive technologies. To establish such a foundation, companies must provide the necessary conditions for each of the four roles —evangelist, autocrat, architect and educator — to flourish..."

Dena Rosko's insight:

Excerpt | "PRINCETON, N.J.—A new culture of health care has been ushered in by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) but, for some, it may be even more complicated than some reports suggest. Americans with income fluctuations, such as those with multiple part-time jobs, may experience shifts in coverage, requiring them to "churn" between Medicaid and private insurance, potentially affecting affordability and continuous access to care."
