In the next of our podcasts dedicated to the USA’s multibillion investment in the fight against AIDS, Ben and Yvette catch up with Emily Bass, author of To End A Plague - the definitive history of PEPFAR, to discuss how PEPFAR, the pride of US bipartisanship, has become yet another victim of congressional mischief-making. PEPFAR saves lives: it also reinforces US soft power abroad. So why would politicians want to scupper it?

If you are a medical writer my guess is that you occasionally struggle to engage your target audience. Health professionals have less time and shorter attention spans, making it critical for medical writers to master storytelling techniques that get their audiences interested and engaged with content, whether we’re talking about slide decks, manuscripts, or omni-channel content.
My guest in episode 102 is Eleanor Steele, also known as MedComms Mentor, who shares how she transitioned from agency work to running a successful freelance business in medical communications. Join us to learn more about the gaps Eleanor identified in the market for specialized training and development and get practical advice from Eleanor about:
Storytelling frameworks that support a logical flow of information and answer audience questions
How to frame content around audience needs and interests
The skills you need to write "bite-sized" short-form content optimized for different formats
This conversation with Eleanor is part of our first Friday series, which profiles medical writers and how they have broken into the field. It's also the last episode of season 7.

Looking at HR or Blood Pressure alone as determinants of how stable the patient is can lead us astray. The Shock Index allows us to detect when patients are declining… while they are still compensating. Shock Index = HR/SBP… but how can we use this tool? A patient’s vital signs can appear normal, meanwhile they’re on the brink of shock. This was exactly the case of Mr. Fields, a patient admitted to the ER after falling off his tractor. Initially, his vitals didn't raise alarms but there were signs pointing to a more serious situation — including a shock index of greater than one.In this episode, host Sarah Lorenzini dives into the critical role shock index plays in determining how sick patients are and improving their outcomes, especially in emergency settings. She breaks down the calculation of shock index, its limitations in screening for all types of shock, and practical applications in patient care.Tune in now to explore how you can apply this vital tool in the assessment and treatment of patients!Topics discussed in this episode:The case study of Mr. FieldsUnderstanding shock indexHow to calculate shock index… the easy wayClinical applications of shock indexLimitations of shock indexLearn more about shock index: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6698590/#:~:text=Shock%20index%20(SI)%20is%20defined,sepsis%2C%20and%20ruptured%20ectopic%20pregnancyMentioned in this episode:Rapid Response Academy LinkWanna check out Rapid Response Academy: The Heart and Science of Caring for the Sick?
