Just about everyone in the world has experienced something that can be characterized as a trauma. Humans are resilient, and most people recover on their own and function well. Some continue to be affected by trauma long after the fact, and it is not always easy to identify who that may be and how a history of adversity may impact our interactions. There is a difference between trauma-specific care (such as Cognitive Processing Therapy or Prolonged Exposure therapy) and trauma-informed care. Join us and our amazing guest, Dr. Lydia Bartholow, as we discuss trauma-informed care and how we can reorient from a “What's wrong with you?” to a “What happened to you?” approach and implement psychological “universal precautions” to transform our systems to acknowledge a history of adversity.Lydia Bartholow, DNP, PMHNP, CARN-AP, is a doctorally prepared psychiatric nurse practitioner specializing in addiction medicine and trauma-informed care. She currently staffs and directs a trauma-informed urgent substance withdrawal management center. She is on faculty at UCSF, where she teaches in the psychiatric nurse practitioner program. She speaks nationally on topics such as co-occurring disorders, harm reduction, and substance use disorder care system improvement. She focuses all parts of her practice on radical public health, harm reduction, and anti-oppression work.

In this episode of the Speaking Out of Place podcast, Professor David Palumbo-Liu and Azeezah Kanji talk with Hedi Viterbo and Dr. Jess Ghannam. This episode was recorded on Saturday the 18th of November, 2023, as Israel's massive attack on Gaza passed the 40-day mark. Almost immediately after the deadly October 7 Hamas attack, the image of the child, both Israeli and Palestinian, began to dominate the media's coverage, and appeals to international humanitarian law were made to “save the children.” Azeezah Kanji and I decided to create this podcast to coincide with November 20, International Children's Day, in order to take a deeper look at why such appeals to the law must be contextualized both historically and politically.Hedi Viterbo is an associate professor of law at Queen Mary University of London in the UK. His research examines legal issues concerning childhood, state violence, and sexuality from an interdisciplinary and global perspective. His latest book is Problematizing Law, Rights, and Childhood in Israel/Palestine (Cambridge University Press, 2021).Dr. Jess Ghannam is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Global Health Sciences in the School of Medicine at UCSF. His research areas include evaluating the long-term health consequences of war on displaced communities and the psychological and psychiatric effects of armed conflict on children. Dr. Ghannam has developed community health clinics in the Middle East that focus on developing community-based treatment programs for families in crisis. He is also a consultant with the Center for Constitutional Rights, Reprieve and other international NGO's that work with torture survivors. Locally he works to promote and enhance the health and wellness of refugee, displaced, and immigrant populations from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia and has established a community-based Mental Health Treatment Programs to support these communities.https://www.qmul.ac.uk/law/people/academic-staff/items/viterbo.htmlhttps://www.cambridge.org/us/universitypress/subjects/law/human-rights/problematizing-law-rights-and-childhood-israelpalestinewww.palumbo-liu.com https://speakingoutofplace.comhttps://twitter.com/palumboliu?s=20

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is associated with early stages of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and other dementias. Many people living with dementia cite symptoms of MCI as an early sign. Yet, there's lots of confusion with what might be “normal” memory loss that comes with aging or a sign to see a doctor. UCSF's Emily Paolillo, PhD, joins Being Patient Live Talks to explain MCI and what goes into diagnosis. As an Assistant Professor at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, her clinical work includes providing neuropsychological evaluations to aid in diagnosis and treatment of patients with possible neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, her research focuses on evaluating digital health tools for early detection and monitoring of neurobehavioral changes in Alzheimer's disease, as well as understanding how lifestyle behaviors can grant risk and resilience to dementia. RSVP to this live talk to learn more about MCI and what to keep in mind about diagnosis.

Introverts often find themselves navigating the extroverted seas of academic medicine, where networking events, presentations, and social interactions seem to be everywhere. In the latest episode of the Faculty Factory Podcast, Drs. Margot Cohen and Andrew Orr join our show to share valuable insights on how introverts can excel in a field that often values extroverted qualities. In June 2023, Drs. Cohen and Orr, along with Aditi Kalotra, MD, authored the article, “Twelve Tips for Excelling as an Introvert in Academic Medicine.” It caught our attention here at the Faculty Factory in the best way possible. Dr. Cohen is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Hospital Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Medicine). Dr. Orr, formerly of Penn Medicine, currently serves as Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF in the San Francisco Veterans Administration. Here is the link to the article that was the foundation of this interview, "Twelve Tips for Excelling as an Introvert in Academic Medicine": https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0142159X.2023.2216357 Other resources mentioned in this podcast include: "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain: https://www.amazon.com/Quiet-Power-Introverts-World-Talking/dp/0307352153 "Knowing Your Personal Brand: What Academics Can Learn From Marketing 101": https://journals.lww.com/academicmedicine/fulltext/2019/09000/knowing_your_personal_brand__what_academics_can.15.aspx Success in academic medicine is not limited to extroverted individuals. By embracing introverted qualities, structuring self-promotion, flexing the extrovert muscle when necessary, and prioritizing self-care, introverts can navigate the academic medicine landscape with confidence. As academic medicine continues to evolve, recognizing and celebrating the diversity of personalities within the field will contribute to a more inclusive and supportive environment for all professionals.

Coaching is in. During the later stages of the pandemic, it seemed every other person, and particularly the junior faculty in our Division, were either being coached, in training to coach, or coaching others. When I was a junior faculty, coaching wasn't a thing. Sure, Atul Gawande wrote about coaching in surgery - having someone observe you and coach you on your technical skills- but that's a far cry from the coaching programs focused on empowerment that are exploding around the country today. Today we learn more about coaching from 3 coaches: Greg Pawlson, coach and former president of the American Geriatrics Society, Vicky Tang, geriatrician-researcher at UCSF and coach, and Beth Griffiths, primary care internist at UCSF and coach. We address: What is coaching? How does it differ from therapy? How does it differ from mentoring What is typically covered in coaching sessions? What is the evidence (see many links below, sent by Beth) What are the standards for becoming a coach? Who is coaching for? My take: coaching has tremendous potential. There seems to be a gender story here as well - coaching may be of particular benefit to women who are at higher risk for burnout. Note, for example, the hot off the press JAMA Network Open trial which demonstrated modest benefits across a range of outcomes was conducted exclusively in female resident physicians. Kemi Doll, a physician-researcher and coach, has a terrific podcast I highly recommend everyone listen to, though it is targeted at women of color in academic medicine. On the other hand, there is a concerning side, described in this Guardian article titled, I'm a life coach, you're a life coach: rise of an unregulated industry. See also the long list of disclosures in the JAMA Network Open study. Our guests note, rightly, that the same profit motive and concerns are true about colleges. Still, I remain concerned when I see that the Life Coach School costs $21K; when the founder of the Life Coach School's goal is to grow a $100 million/year business; and when my spidey sense tells me there's something cultish about the empowerment industry. So, I see the potential of coaching, particularly for groups that face challenges in academic medicine; and I worry about the injection of profit-motives and the goals of industry leaders pushing the meteoric rise of the life coach industry. -@AlexSmithMD 1. Hot off the presses RCT in JAMA October 2023: Study that looks at 1000 female resident physicians at 26 sites that showed that coaching improved each outcome assessed (burnout, moral injury, imposter syndrome, self-compassion, and flourishing). https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2810135 2. An RCT for female residents published in JAMA May 2022: This was the initial pilot single institution study by the same team as above. Their findings concluded that it was feasible to implement an online coaching program for female residents and that coaching improved emotional exhaustion, imposter syndrome and self-compassion. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2791968?fbclid=IwAR0taY5CGpUa5eyfleNIl7RfXLT7qVt0GakKPGlT9ESIPLn0yCKWG9obrZo 3.

What does the founder of NextSense, a former Google X director, have to share about the fascinating world of consciousness and the mind-body connection? Jonathan (JB) Berent – an avid practitioner of polyphasic sleep, lucid dreaming enthusiast, and someone deeply interested in altered states of consciousness – takes us through his journey in this enlightening conversation. We unpack his fascination for the interplay between subjective experiences and science, touching upon his spiritual practices and unique sleep routine.Our conversation takes a deep dive into the world of altered states of consciousness, not just from a theoretical standpoint but from Jonathan's own experiences and observations. We also discuss the scientific measurements of these states and how they are clinically oriented around wake and sleep states. From Jonathan's personal experiences, we get an intriguing insight into the concept of flow and how it can bridge the subjective with the objective. We also touch upon the physiological processes that our brain undergoes during these states and how we can observe and comprehend what's happening.In the latter part of our conversation, we examine the role of ego in entrepreneurship and how to mindfully manage it. Using his own experiences, Jonathan illustrates the power of dreams and the delicate balance between ambition and surrender. He also shares how the teachings of Saad Guru, a renowned yogi and visionary, have shaped his journey and helped him make better decisions. So, sit back and join us on this mind-expanding exploration of consciousness, science, and much more.A bit about JB:Jonathan "JB" Berent is a visionary leader who is passionate about exploring human consciousness and unlocking its full potential.

So, for right now, I am pleased to present to you Dr. Charles Raison.
Nearly four years have passed since COVID swept the globe, infecting millions and bringing society to a grinding halt. The ensuing months saw strict mask mandates, revolutionary vaccines, new viral strains, and—finally—a return to some sort of normal. With the end of the public health emergency and a sudden disappearance of the once-ubiquitous masks, it's easy to feel like the pandemic is, well, over. But some would strongly disagree with that prognosis—and one group in particular: people suffering from the lasting effects of long COVID. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kim Rhoads, a Berkeley grad and associate professor at UCSF, about the challenge of diagnosing this post-viral illness, its wide-ranging and often mysterious symptoms, and why you might not want to throw out your mask just yet.

The kidney may be one of the most underestimated organs: it's incredibly complex, and responsible for five to seven key functions in the body. In addition to producing urine and removing toxins from the blood, it regulates blood pressure, produces hormones, protects the body's immune system, and controls blood pH levels. When kidneys fail, all of these functions are lost. Press play to discover: How an organoid differs from a bioartificial organ like the kidney being developed as part of The Kidney Project In what ways the approach taken by The Kidney Project fundamentally differs from other approaches to the treatment of kidney failure What's needed in order to get this artificial kidney in clinical trials, and when it might be available to patients Shuvo Roy is a professor of bioengineering at UCSF whose work is centered around the development of a surgically implantable bioartificial kidney capable of providing constant treatment to patients who are currently on dialysis, and eventually performing all of the functions of a natural kidney. Roy's work is part of The Kidney Project, which is a national effort to improve the lives of those with kidney failure. While dialysis can act as a proxy for the kidney in filtering the blood, it does not provide the other functions nearly as well as a natural kidney. To date, no one has been able to replicate a human kidney capable of performing all of the functions of a natural kidney, but that's the goal of Roy's work. First, the artificial kidney will combine a mechanical filter made from silicon wafers, and cadaver kidney cells to provide mechanical filtration, produce important hormones, and perform other key functions of the proximal tubule, such as salt and water reabsorption. This will liberate people from the necessity of going to a dialysis center multiple times a week, allow them to eat and drink freely, and enhance the overall quality of their lives. As the device enters the clinical realm, the technology will be further refined to eventually capture all of the functions of a natural kidney. Roy dives into the details of all this and more, including the specific benefits of artificial organs, microfabrication technology and applications, and the manufacturing and engineering processes of medical devices like the artificial kidney.

Often podcasts meet clinical reality. That's why we do this podcast- to address real world issues in palliative care, geriatrics, and bioethics. But rarely does the podcast and clinical reality meet in the same day. Within hours of recording this podcast, I joined a family meeting of an older patient who had multiple medical problems including cancer, and a slow but inexorable decline in function, weight, and cognition. Physical therapy had walked with him that day and noted improvement compared to previous walks, suggesting that he should be discharged to a skilled nursing facility for rehabilitation on discharge. The patient's capacity to make decisions was marginal, and his sons were shouldering much of the responsibility. The sons were very focused on rehabilitation, and the patient gave his assent. In the meeting, I used the language suggested by Sarguni Singh, “I worry that going to SNF for rehab may not result in your being independent.” We additionally discussed hospice care as an option for care that might follow the trial of rehabilitation. Today we talk with Sarguni Singh, hospitalist-researcher at the University of Colorado, Ann Henshaw, Occupational Therapist who teaches at George Washington and works clinically at Georgetown, and Tamra Keeney, Physical Therapist-researcher at Mass General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Lynn Flint, author of the NEJM perspective titled, “Rehabbed to Death,” joins Eric and I as co-host. We cover a lot of ground in this podcast, including an evidence based toolkit to promote collaboration between therapy fields and palliative care, outcomes of rehabilitation for people with advanced cancer (hint: not much hospice, lots of re-hospitalization), and a JAGS study on use of post-acute care among patients with heart failure. We also heard from Tamra about her opinion piece in which she laments, “The role of rehabilitation is often myopically constrained to facilitation of efficient discharge planning.” Therapists are so much more. At the end of the day, I lamented that physical, occupational, and speech therapists aren't more tightly integrated with palliative care teams. As Lynn says at the end of the podcast, to paraphrase, “Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy - all this therapy for older frail patients is a core part of good palliative care.” And our guests sing along with “Sweet Caroline” - so good, so good, so good! -@AlexSmithMD This episode of the GeriPal Podcast is sponsored by UCSF's Division of Palliative Medicine, an amazing group doing world class palliative care.

Welcome to another episode of Superhumanize, the podcast that dives deep into the realms of health, wellness, and longevity. I'm your host, Ariane Sommer, and today we are journeying into the microscopic landscape of our biology, specifically zeroing in on the secrets of female reproductive aging. This episode is not just for women, but for anyone interested in the complex dance between aging and vitality, and how the body's smallest components can have grand ramifications on our overall well-being.My guest is an illustrious figure in the field of aging research, Dr. Jennifer Garrison. She's an Assistant Professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, the world's first institution dedicated solely to unlocking the mysteries of aging. Her groundbreaking work also extends to her roles as Assistant Professor in Residence in Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology at UCSF, and Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at USC.In her laboratory—aptly named the Garrison Lab—Jennifer and her team explore cutting-edge topics like Neuropeptide Signaling, the role of Neuropeptides in Aging, and particularly for today's conversation, the Role of the Brain in Ovarian Aging. Their work brings a whole new dimension to how we perceive and understand menopause, essentially shifting the paradigm and pointing to the brain as the epicenter of this life-altering transition.Now, why should you care? Because this research could redefine the way we look at aging, not just for women, but for everyone. From the rapid aging of ovaries to the global effects that menopause has on bone health, cognitive functions, and even cardiovascular well-being; Jennifer's work has profound implications.So if you've ever wondered why reproductive longevity is crucial, what menopause may signal about your overall lifespan, or how future research might completely eliminate the need for things like IVF and egg freezing, then buckle up. We'll also delve into the controversial topic of hormone replacement therapy, discuss the potential risks and benefits of having or not having children, and envision a future where anti-fibrotic drugs and high-quality oocytes could redefine what aging means for women.Get ready to have your mind expanded and your perceptions about aging and vitality redefined. This is a conversation that pushes the boundaries of what we know, and ventures into what could be possible.

Michael Peluso M.D., an HIV and infectious disease specialist at UCSF, has been studying Long Covid patients since April 2020 (LIINC Study). This, along with his history of working with HIV and other viruses, has given him the knowledge and methods to make some break-throughs into Long Covid pathogenesis, effects and, potentially, treatments. He, along with his team, has established that Long Covid causes T-cell and immune dysregulation and he has used multimodal molecular imaging to reveal that viral RNA reservoirs are persistent in Long Covid patients. With the aim of clearing this viral debris, Peluso is now leading a clinical trial using a monoclonal antibody infusion.Living with Long Covid?

This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ . Radiology found itself in the crosshairs of the debate about AI automating jobs when in 2016 AI expert Geoffrey Hinton said that AI would do just that to radiologists. That hasn't happened - but will it? To get to the bottom of this, I talked with Matthew Lungren, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer at Nuance Communications, a Microsoft company applying AI to healthcare workflows, and the name that comes at the top of the list when you look up #radiology and #AI. He also has a pediatric radiology practice at UCSF and previously led the Stanford [University] Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging. More recently he served as Principal for Clinical AI/ML at Amazon Web Services in World Wide Public Sector Healthcare. He has an impressive oeuvre of over 100 publications, including work on multi-modal data fusion models for healthcare applications, and new computer vision and natural language processing approaches for healthcare-specific domains. In this interview conclusion, we talk about the details of how AI including large language models can be an effective part of a radiologist's workflow how decisions about integrating AI into medicine can be made, and where we might be going with it in the future. All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines. Transcript and URLs referenced at HumanCusp Blog.
