Links between Twitter and medicine grow closer

MDs role in addressing health equity (Links between Twitter and medicine grow closer http://t.co/upKCjhHE ¦ CMA (HT @cmaer) #hcsmeu...)...

 

When did Twitter start to enter the medical mainstream?

 

An argument can be made that the moment came in September during the 5th World Congress on Social Media, Mobile Apps, Internet/Web 2.0 at Harvard Medical School, when two of the most active and cited tweeters were MDs. This was no mean feat, given that the conference, which attracted 500 delegates from 36 countries and produced several thousand tweets (#med), trended as one of the top subjects of interest worldwide Sept. 15 and 16.

In addition to tweeting nonstop during the conference, Dr. Alex Djuricich (@medpedsdoctor), associate dean of continuing medical education at Indiana University, and Dr. Ryan Madanick (@RyanMadanickMD), a gastroenterologist at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, participated actively in live discussions.

 

Djuricich described his use of Twitter during grand rounds, while Madanick participated in a panel discussion on the value of Twitter in medical education and as a life-long learning tool. "The collaborations that have emerged as a result of Twitter and Medicine 2.0 will be priceless," Madanick wrote later in his blog.

 

Twitter also has its share of skeptics within the medical community, although Dr. Ronan Kavanagh, an Irish rheumatologist and active blogger and tweeter, was quick to challenge them. "As someone who spends a lot of his time on Twitter, it hurts to think that the majority of my colleagues might think I am wasting my time," he wrote.

 

That comment was prompted by a tweet from the conference, which noted that an audience member said a survey of his large medical practice found that 86% of physicians feel participating in social media is a waste of time.

 

"Engaging in health-related activities on social media channels is the most important thing I have done for my medical life since completing my specialist training," Kavanagh responded. "It has renewed my fascination for health care in a way I haven't felt since I was a medical student, and doing so has undoubtedly quelled a mid-life ennui with my career.

 

"It has transformed the way I learn - I had all but stopped learning - and introduced me to new and interesting friends." (...)

Childhood adversity and risk of suicide: cohort study of 548 721 adolescents and young adults in Sweden

Childhood adversity and risk of suicide: cohort study of 548 721 adolescents and young adults in Sweden | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Objective  To examine the relation between childhood adversity, the role of school performance, and childhood psychopathology and the risk of suicide.

Design  Cohort study of register based indicators of childhood adversity (at ages 0-14) including death in the family (suicide analysed separately), parental substance abuse, parental psychiatric disorder, substantial parental criminality, parental separation/single parent household, receipt of public assistance, and residential instability.

Setting  Swedish medical birth register and various Swedish population based registers.

Participants  548 721 individuals born 1987-91.

Main outcome measures  Estimates of suicide risk at ages 15-24 calculated as incidence rate ratios adjusted for time at risk and confounders.

Results  Adjusted incidence rate ratios for the relation between childhood adversity and suicide during adolescence and young adulthood ranged from 1.6 (95% confidence interval 1.1 to 2.4) for residential instability to 2.9 (1.4 to 5.9) for suicide in the family. There was a dose-response relation between accumulating childhood adversity and risk: 1.1 (0.9 to 1.4) for those exposed to one adversity and 1.9 (1.4 to 2.5) and 2.6 (1.9 to 3.4) for those exposed to two and three or more adversities, respectively. The association with increased risk of suicide remained even after adjustment for school performance and childhood psychopathology.

Conclusion  Childhood adversity is a risk factor for suicide in adolescence and young adulthood, particularly accumulated adversity. These results emphasise the importance of understanding the social mechanisms of suicide and the need for effective interventions early in life, aiming to alleviate the risk in disadvantaged children.

Breastfeeding, Cognitive and Noncognitive Development in Early Childhood: A Population Study

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There is mixed evidence from correlational studies that breastfeeding impacts children’s development. Propensity score matching with large samples can be an effective tool to remove potential bias from observed confounders in correlational studies. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of breastfeeding on children’s cognitive and noncognitive development at 3 and 5 years of age.

METHODS: Participants included ∼8000 families from the Growing Up in Ireland longitudinal infant cohort, who were identified from the Child Benefit Register and randomly selected to participate. Parent and teacher reports and standardized assessments were used to collect information on children’s problem behaviors, expressive vocabulary, and cognitive abilities at age 3 and 5 years. Breastfeeding information was collected via maternal report. Propensity score matching was used to compare the average treatment effects on those who were breastfed.

RESULTS: Before matching, breastfeeding was associated with better development on almost every outcome. After matching and adjustment for multiple testing, only 1 of the 13 outcomes remained statistically significant: children’s hyperactivity (difference score, –0.84; 95% confidence interval, –1.33 to –0.35) at age 3 years for children who were breastfed for at least 6 months. No statistically significant differences were observed postmatching on any outcome at age 5 years.

CONCLUSIONS: Although 1 positive benefit of breastfeeding was found by using propensity score matching, the effect size was modest in practical terms. No support was found for statistically significant gains at age 5 years, suggesting that the earlier observed benefit from breastfeeding may not be maintained once children enter school.
