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." (...)

The individual kits are small enough and have convenient packaging, enabling them to be handled by one or two people. All boxes are clearly marked on the outside with the kit number, a distinct color for each kit, as well as a description of contents, consignee and other relevant information.

Por cada 2 horas de TV se incrementa 20% el riesgo de diabetes y 13% el riesgo de muerte

Por cada 2 horas de TV se incrementa 20% el riesgo de diabetes y 13% el riesgo de muerte | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Un trabajo de investigación realizado por Anders Grøntved y Frank B. Hu, publicado en la revista JAMA demostró que por cada dos horas de televisión todos los días, el riesgo de diabetes tipo 2 aumentó en un 20%, el riesgo de enfermedad cardiovascular en un 15%, y el riesgo de mortalidad por cualquier causa el aumento en un 13%, demostrándose una relación directa entre el tiempo que las personas pasan viendo televisión y el riesgo de dichas enfermedades.
Mariano Fernandez S.'s insight:

Ver la televisión por prolongados períodos de tiempo es la conducta sedentaria más frecuente y generalizada en los países industrializados y se ha asociado con morbilidad y mortalidad. Es incluso peor que otras actividades sedentarias, ya que es muy pasiva y el gasto de energía es menor en comparación con la conducción de vehículos, leer o trabajar en una computadora.

Los resultados de esta investigación, publicada el martes en la revista especializada JAMA (de la asociación médica estadounidense), confirman lo que ya muchos otros estudios del mismo tipo han estado validando desde hace 15 años.

Here’s why healthcare professionals should be on social media

Here’s why healthcare professionals should be on social media | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

I asked a physician in the Philippines why he is not on social media (as a physician). This physician has a huge private practice and is a consultant in some well known healthcare institutions in a city. He answered me this:

“I don’t want to be known as a physician on social media. I’m pretty scared of what get posted on my profile.  It might backfire on me. Anybody can throw malicious comments on me, or hack my account and wreak havoc on my profile!  My healthcare institution also forbid us to post anything related to work without clearing it from them first. Healthcare is my work so I need to ask them first every time I post on social media! That’s crazy! Besides, I was quite successful with my practice without social media, why would I need one now?”
