Rapid Diagnostic Testing for SARS-CoV-2 by P.K. Drain

A 38-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes has a telemedicine visit after learning that a person with whom she had close contact at an indoor wedding 3 days earlier has tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The woman reports that she is asymptomatic and received a second vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 approximately 9 months ago but has not received a booster vaccination. She attended the wedding with her husband, who has also received two vaccinations, and her two unvaccinated children, who are 5 and 8 years of age. Her husband had mild nasal congestion and a cough the evening before her appointment. She had previously purchased rapid diagnostic tests that received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for home-based SARS-CoV-2 testing and wonders whether using these tests would be appropriate. What would you advise? Full-text recordings of Clinical Practice articles may be found at NEJM.org.

The Use of Arts in Healing and Medicine: Christopher Bailey from WHO

Medicine is a mix of science and art. The art may be obscured by elegant science and spectacular use of technology, but it is there. However, we are seeing increased interest of the use of arts to promote health and healing Far from being distinct realms, art and science intertwine in unexpected ways to promote health and healing. It is this amalgam that we will explore in today’s episode of SoundPractice. We will be talking with Christopher Bailey, Art and Health Lead for the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization (WHO)  helped host a symposium at the Metropolitan Museum of Art focused upon this topic. Join us for a discussion of evidence-based use of the arts to promote health and healing and social prescribing.
