Genetic testing: Could there be unintended consequences?

"Both clinical and direct-to-consumer genetic testing have become significantly less costly and more common, providing people with access to a wealth of information about everything from their ethnicity and family lineage to their risk for certain diseases and how they will respond to medications such as blood thinners and antidepressants. But before you decide to take the plunge into your gene pool, there are a number of issues you should carefully consider. Genetic testing can have unintended consequences, both personal and medical, so it’s wise to weigh the value of any information you may gain against the potential issues that the testing may raise." Miles J. Varn is chief executive officer, PinnacleCare, and can be reached on LinkedIn. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Genetic testing: Could there be unintended consequences?" (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/04/genetic-testing-could-there-be-unintended-consequences.html)

Sensing Health

Across the globe, millions of people are experiencing the challenges, complexities, and costs of caring for elderly family members—these challenges have been amplified and complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. AARP recently reported that 48 million Americans, mostly women, care for another adult and now, checking in on our elder loved ones in a physically distanced manner requires even greater creativity and innovation. In this episode, we meet nurse innovator Joshua Littlejohn MPH, MSN, RN, and entrepreneur Gabriela Sabaté, MBA, MHCI, who are experimenting and innovating with technologies that connect data to transform how we not only provide care remotely, but also how we approach and use hackathons as a way to crowdsource ideas and introduce new innovations.  For more additional resources visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com  Contact us at [email protected]

Locum tenens contracts: Maximize opportunities and minimize risks

"Locum tenens means 'to hold the place of, to substitute for' and locum tenens contracts are a common form of agreement for physicians who provide temporary medical services in place of full-time physicians. Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, increased demand puts physicians in a better position to negotiate their locum tenens contracts. However, too many practitioners sign them without fully understanding their implications. This is a mistake. A well-drafted locum tenens contract (a) protects the physician’s interests beyond compensation, (b) anticipates and addresses disputes, and (c) limits risks." Jack A. Gordon and Andrew E. Sarti are attorneys, Kent, Beatty, & Gordon, LLP. They share their story and discuss the KevinMD article that they co-wrote, "Anatomy of locum tenens contracts: a physician’s guide to understanding contractual provisions to maximize opportunities and minimize risks."

Bridging the COVID-19 health recommendations divide

"Misinformation about COVID-19, if propagated, can be deadly. The stakes are high. Physicians need to have a voice in this discussion and work towards impacting policy in a positive way. Physician-led groups such as IMPACT aim to advocate for evidence-based solutions for the protection of communities and serve an advisory role to those in charge of public policies. As physicians, our primary purpose is the well-being of our patients. We owe it to them to share not only information about sinus infections and sore throat, but how to protect themselves from COVID-19. We must share what we know. We can and should begin to reintegrate into society, but as physicians, our responsibility to the community is to educate and protect. We should not shy away from sharing our expertise with others. This may include uncomfortable conversations with friends and family whose views differ from our own, but if we come from a place of respect and understanding, we can and will get through this together." Inna Husain is an otolaryngologist. She shares her story and discusses the KevinMD article that she co-wrote, "Physicians’ role in bridging the COVID-19 health recommendations divide."

A sleep expert shares her best tips for nurses

What is the ideal interval between shift rotations? Does splitting sleep work? How long is the ideal nap? What’s the difference between a power nap and a restorative nap?  On this episode of The Handoff, Dan is joined by Washington State University Professor Lois James, who is an expert on the role of sleep in performance. She and Dan speak about the ways in which the culture of nursing is often in conflict with good sleep habits. She shares some very practical fatigue countermeasures, as well as strategies that hospitals and nurse leaders can take to optimize shift lengths for their staff.  Dr. James’s other research interest is racism and implicit bias in healthcare, and she also speaks about the dangers of implicit bias in nursing, how those biases are formed and strategies for overcoming them.  Links to recommended reading:  https://nursing.wsu.edu/  https://dailyevergreen.com/8362/news/sleep-and-racial-bias-affect-police-officer-judgement/ https://www.researchgate.net/publication/290437363_The_Reverse_Racism_Effect_Are_Cops_More_Hesitant_to_Shoot_Black_Than_White_Suspects https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=QW-xUh4AAAAJ&hl=en https://news.wsu.edu/2014/09/02/deadly-force-lab-finds-racial-disparities-in-shootings/ https://www.trustedhealth.com/blog/sickness-sleep-nurses-nightshift  https://www.trustedhealth.com/blog/nurse-stress-sleep-not-anymore  The full transcript for this episode can be found here:  www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/lois-james

COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 51: Mayo Clinic Q&A – Bringing COVID-19 Vaccines to the Public

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded on September 14, 2020. To claim credit visit: https://ce.mayo.edu/covid19podcast Guest:  Gregory A. Poland, M.D. (@drgregpoland) Host: Danielle Stiepan Once a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 is approved, there will be logistics to consider. For example, who will receive the vaccine first, and how can the supply chain safely deliver the vaccine to 330 million Americans and potentially more than 7 billion people worldwide? In addition, multiple vaccines may be brought to market within weeks to months of each other, confusing consumers. On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, explains the challenges of rolling out a COVID-19 vaccine. AskMayoExpert COVID-19 Resources: https://askmayoexpert.mayoclinic.org/navigator/COVID-19 Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at https://ce.mayo.edu/ or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.
