Why doesn't my groin pain go away? When someone is an athlete, you must understand what regions of the body are challenged with their sport. With soccer, you think of the thorax, foot, hip, and pelvis from the get-go. Listen in as Erica discusses the movement she and her patient chose to assess and what they discovered. Short-term treatment of someone's symptomatic region may help in the short term, but getting them back in the game is another matter entirely. When a person has an issue with a long lever movement like kicking a soccer ball, recognize and respect the length-tension relationships of the muscles involved in the movement, like how someone's lack of adductor power can stem from an overactive posterior tibialis muscle.

We all know it too well: that sinking feeling when we see the golden retriever scheduled for “check lumps on neck.” But we can do more than ever to treat canine lymphoma with a novel drug. In this episode of Clinician's Brief Partner Podcast, host Dr. Beth Molleson sits down with Dr. Sue “Cancer Vet” Ettinger to discuss canine lymphoma and a novel treatment option to overcome hurdles regarding access to care, including affordability and convenience. Dr. Ettinger shares her “investigate before you tell” approach to conversations with pet owners, why you shouldn't start a lymphoma patient on prednisone if they are being referred to an oncologist, and where this novel drug can fit in for a general practitioner.

Around 1 billion people around the world suffer from a mysterious neurological condition called migraine. Far more than just a headache, migraine is abnormal processing of the world around us that can have symptoms like loss of sight and speech, dizziness, nausea and extreme fatigue.There are drugs which can help those struggling with the condition like anti-depressants and anti-convulsants. However, they weren't developed specifically for migraine and can come with quite a lot of side effects or simply not work.For a long time migraine medication has been a process of trial and error. But a new class of drugs called anti-CGRPs are being hailed as a breakthrough migraine medication. Anti-CGRPs have a small side effect profile and were designed specifically to target migraine. They work by blocking CGRP (Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide) from building up in the body and triggering a receptor in the brain which turns on a head pain pathway causing the migraine attack.Earlier this year the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence - or NICE – in England cleared the use of an anti-CGRP called Rimegepant to use as both a preventive and acute treatment. Clinicians are hoping this will massively improve the lives of those living with the condition.So this week on The Inquiry were asking ‘Have we reached a turning point with migraine medication?'Contributors: Dr. Amaal Starling, neurologist and headache specialist at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, in the US state of Arizona.

You've joined us for a very special episode! Our team at Carolina did some research and pulled together leaders from the Nursing Institute for Healthcare Design (NIHD) to discuss how clinicians and designers are partnering to create better healthcare environments. We also discuss the impact of spaces on burnout, emerging research, and new opportunities for clinicians interested in healthcare design.So, how can we integrate clinicians into the design process? It starts at the beginning. One common mistake is bringing clinicians in when it's "too late." Including nurses and clinicians early in the process ultimately saves money in the long run. Designing a space correctly from the start is much cheaper than redesigning spaces later.Another issue that can be solved by design is clinician burnout. Providing quiet spaces for respite, incorporating nature into stairwells, and using daylighting inside are all examples of needed design solutions to help clinicians combat burnout. Spaces affect emotions more than you know and there's research to prove it. In this episode, we talk about the innovative approaches like AI and biometrics that are being used to understand spaces and how they affect you. If you're a clinician and you want to get involved, start now. Whether the project is big or small, get involved and contribute your voice in any way you can. There's more and more potential for new careers that blend nursing and design. NIHD is passionate about its mission and committed to advocating for clinical input in healthcare design.Learn more about NIHD and Carolina.Watch the full video.Meet our guests below:Elizabeth Johnson, Montana State UniversityAnthony Mistretta, Perkins+WillKristina Krail, Krail AdvisoryLynn Aguilera, Stanford Medicine Children's HealthFollow Doug on LinkedIn.Click here to get your FREE copy of the Imagine a Place journalFollow Imagine a Place on LinkedIn.

For all too many people living with HIV in the U.S., the prospect of facing incarceration because of their status is not an abstraction: It is a real and present danger. And in many states, it has nothing to do with science. This month, Juan Michael Porter II speaks with Joseph Cherabie, M.D., M.Sc., about why it's so important for clinicians to educate themselves about HIV criminalization laws in their state -- and then work to support and empower their patients while pushing to get these laws removed.

https://swiy.co/WhatAreYourThoughtsIn a heartfelt conversation, host Dr. Lia Gaggino is joined by Julius Towers, a remarkable father and advocate who opens up about his personal journey raising twins with autism. From highlighting the importance of early testing to addressing equity and stigma, this episode sheds light on the realities faced by families of children with special needs. It's clear that the journey of parenting a child with autism is filled with challenges and uncertainties. Pediatricians have a crucial role to play in supporting families dealing with autism. By providing clear and compassionate communication, offering guidance and resources, and advocating for their patients, they can make a lasting impact on the lives of these children and their families. Together, we can build a world that celebrates neurodiversity. Let us remember that every child deserves access to early intervention and support, and it is up to each one of us to ensure that no child with autism is left behind. [00:33 -19:47] Early Identification is Key for Child DevelopmentEarly identification allows for timely access to necessary resources and therapies.Parents should be encouraged to observe their child's developmental milestones and seek professional guidance if any concerns arise.Early intervention services can significantly improve a child's overall development and future outcomes.Building awareness about the importance of early identification can lead to better support systems for children and their families.[19:48 - 30:02] Challenges Faced by Minoritized Populations Underdiagnosis issues in minoritized populationsReasons for missed or dismissed diagnosesImpact of underdiagnosis on health outcomesAddressing disparities in healthcare through awareness and education[30:03 - 43:26] Managing overwhelming emotionsAcknowledge the emotional whirlwind that comes with seeking servicesTry not to get caught up in thinking too far ahead into the futureEstablish some emotional boundaries to prevent feeling overwhelmedSeek out counseling or support groups to help navigate the journey[43:26 - 59:24] Steps for Early Diagnosis and Support Screen for developmental delays or disorders in children.Provide prompt referral to early intervention programs and specialized services.Educate parents and caregivers about available resources and support networks.Continuously monitor and track progress to ensure appropriate interventions.[59:25 - 1:05:48] Closing segment TakeawayYou can reach Julius TowersEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgLinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/juliustowersLinks to resources mentioned on the showAutism Speaks Parent Guide: https://www.autismspeaks.org/tool-kit/parents-guide-autismCDC ADDM Network Community Report : https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/addm-community-report/index.htmlAutistic Self Advocacy Network parent guide:

Show Notes If you're a continuing medical education provider, do you ever feel as though your approach to outcomes measures could use some spice? Do you wonder what are we missing when we don't include process measures in outcomes evaluation? Or when you are working on outcomes measurement, analysis, and crucially, writing that outcomes report, do you find yourself wondering how to use confidence as an indicator of behavior change, or where self-efficacy fits into the outcomes mix? That's our focus today with Katie Lucero PhD, Vice President, Audience, Analytics, Outcomes & Insights at Medscape. We're also talking about frameworks for behavior change, user experience in learning, and the meaning of confidence and self-efficacy as education outcome measures. Today's episode is the first in a 2-part series of episodes that focus on outcomes evaluation that dig into questions like the significance of self-reported confidence, competence, intent or commitment to change, the value of using claims data and digital footprint to study practice change at scale, and asking open-ended questions for qualitative data.

Dr. Avgi Saketopoulou is a New York-based psychoanalyst and therapist with extensive experience with trauma, queerness, gender diversity, and the nuances of consent. In her latest book, “Sexuality Beyond Consent: Risk, Race, Traumatophilia,” Dr. Saketopoulou argues that we have become culturally obsessed with healing trauma and points to the ways traumatized people synthesize their pain. In her book, she also makes an important distinction between limit and affirmative consent, which we dissect as concepts through art and creative expression at large. This leads to an enriching conversation about the evolution of self, coming out whole after trauma, how trauma brings us into a new awareness and chances who we are fundamentally, and the ever-important question… is trauma ever healed? We also pull apart the crossover between eroticism and consent, the erotics of racism, and how through traumatic experiences we can unlock our potential as these encounters are not about guarding the self but about risking experience. In this episode, I have a truly fascinating conversation with Dr. Saketopoulou that begs us each to look at the traumas we've experienced, how we can relate to these events, not pathologize them and use them not to master trauma but to rub up against it so it opens us up to encounters with opacity.

Leveling an E/M visit can be considered very subjective. Clinicians and auditors alike can come to one conclusion or another. It is important that when you take online advice, you also consider “best practices” and payer-published guidance before you do only the minimum (or what is “technically” correct). Terry makes this clear distinction in today's […] The post E/M Leveling with MDM: Right or Wrong? appeared first on Terry Fletcher Consulting, Inc..

Clinician-led healthcare AI company Harrison.ai has built an AI system that serves as “spell checker” for radiologists — flagging critical findings to improve the speed and accuracy of radiology image analysis, reducing misdiagnoses. In the latest episode of NVIDIA's AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz spoke with Harrison.ai CEO and cofounder Aengus Tran about the company's mission to scale global healthcare capacity with autonomous AI systems. Harrison.ai's initial product, annalise.ai, is an AI tool that automates radiology image analysis to enable faster, more accurate diagnoses. It can produce 124-130 different possible diagnoses and flag key findings to aid radiologists in their final diagnosis. Currently, annalise.ai works for chest X-rays and brain CT scans. While an AI designed for categorizing traffic lights, for example, doesn't need perfection, medical tools must be highly accurate — any oversight could be fatal. To overcome this challenge, annalise.ai was trained on millions of meticulously annotated images — some were annotated three to five times over before being used for training. Harrison.ai is also developing Franklin.ai, a sibling AI tool aimed to accelerate and improve the accuracy of histopathology diagnosis — in which a clinician performs a biopsy and inspects the tissue for the presence of cancerous cells. Similarly to annalise.ai, Franklin.ai flags critical findings to assist pathologists in speeding and increasing the accuracy of diagnoses. Ethical concerns about AI use are ever-rising, but for Tran, the concern is less about whether it's ethical to use AI for medical diagnosis but “actually the converse: Is it ethical to not use AI for medical diagnosis,” especially if “humans using those AI systems simply pick up more misdiagnosis, pick up more cancer and conditions?” Tran also talked about the future of AI systems and suggested that the focus is dual: first, focus on improving preexisting systems and then think of new cutting-edge solutions. And for those looking to break into careers in AI and healthcare, Tran says that the “first step is to decide upfront what problems you're willing to spend a huge part of your time solving first, before the AI part,” emphasizing that the “first thing is actually to fall in love with some problem.”

Prompted by a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2019, Dr. Omolara transitioned from her career as a professor, researcher & pediatrician to co-founder of Strong Children Wellness — a multi-practice healthcare network that partners with communities to provide tech-enabled physical health, mental health, and social care for Medicaid-eligible & uninsured children and families, including those impacted by poverty, trauma and immigration inequities. As a social entrepreneur, she has secured over $1,000,000 in funding in less than 2 years, without loans or investors. This prompted her to create Melanin & Medicine, a healthcare consulting firm that supports mission-driven healthcare organizations serving communities of color to secure grants, contracts & alternative payments to help them scale and make greater impact. Dr. Uwemedimo is a noted speaker on social entrepreneurship, funding strategies in healthcare, community-based healthcare for under-resourced communities and clinical & advocacy approaches to supporting anti-poverty health policies, including access to safety net programs, such as Medicaid, SNAP & TANF. She has been an invited speaker for several conferences & organizations including American Academy of Pediatrics, American Women's Medical Association, Health Tech 4 Medicaid, Center for Law and Social Policy, Immigration Advocates Network, United Hospital Fund & Greater NY Hospital Association.
While chronic kidney disease diagnosis is rare in children, its effects are profound. Furthermore, there's so much scientists don't know about kidney function. Keia Sanderson is hoping to change that. She specializes in chronic kidney disease treatment in pediatric patients and discusses avenues to advance treatment and prevention. This podcast gives her the perfect platform to explain How kidney disease is especially challenging to identity in children because chronic kidney disease stages are often asymptomatic in pediatric patients, Why preterm babies are vulnerable to certain conditions because of the development timing of the nephrons, and Why it's important to identity intervention measures before dialysis and kidney transplantation provide the only recourse. Keia Sanderson, MD, is an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Her job is a mix of teaching, clinical work, and research. In her clinical work, she takes care of children with kidney disease at all stages, including kids who receive transplants. Her current research is focused on kidney outcomes in children with complex medical histories, in particular children who've been born prematurely. She says that the challenge is oftentimes the asymptomatic nature of kidney disease in children. Therefore, she and other clinicians are often meeting kids with disease states that are irreversible and are turning toward dialysis treatment and transplantation. Dr. Sanderson gives listeners a special focus on the risks from preterm birth. Because preterm babies tend to have less nephron development, the nephrons that are present have to work overtime and are subject to hyper filtration. But because doctors have been able to identify this as a critical time, they are looking at ways to better manage preterm infant treatment. For example, what medications are they receiving that could affect kidney development? How are we feeding infants in this active development stage? How are we handling their oxygenation? While a clear pathway is not yet evident, she is hopeful she and other researches will find one. Currently, she's hoping to develop mathematical models to make better predications about the risk levels for different babies.
