EHR Individual - Group: Aggregator

People probably look at Hodges' model and see something that is simplistic. There is a great power, however, in the scenarios that the structure of Hodges' model can readily encompass. Not just in the hospital, but across all care contexts.

"Where is the great value promised by the transition to EHR [Electronic Health Record]? Where is the huge surplus from all those lives saved? Without an actor who can find it, and deploy it to shift the doctors into surplus, nothing will happen. 
If the ecosystem* includes just the five traditional players, EHR will remain an academic dream. The answer, then, requires introducing a new player - an aggregator. Because the odds of mistakes are so low, the benefits of EHR are invisible to the individual patient. They become material only when we aggregate outcomes over a large enough number of patients. We need to find an actor whose surplus is affected by patients not as individuals but as a group, and who is able to both capture and distribute this benefit; insurers, health-care systems, and governments all fit the bill. And the larger the group, the larger the surplus." p.130.

*The ecosystem illustrated by Adner is simplified and includes:
Payer/ Insurer, IT Provider, Hospital Administration, Hospital Department, Doctor, Nurse, Patient

Universal Health Coverage Day 2017 - 12 December



Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day is Tuesday, 12 December – five years after the United Nations unanimously endorsed UHC for the first time. Since then, voices declaring UHC morally right, economically smart and urgently needed have grown louder than ever before. But progress has not followed at an equal pace. Like any political goal, the right to health will not be guaranteed until people everywhere decide to fight for it.

Join us this UHC Day [http://universalhealthcoverageday.org/] as we “Rise for Our Right” to health and demand courageous political action in every country. We will celebrate local change-makers and inspire our communities to join our cause. We will partner with fellow advocates for equity and shared prosperity. And we expect a record number of marches, rallies and events to amplify the growing people’s movement for UHC.

On behalf of the Universal Health Coverage Coalition – 1000+ organizations in 120+ countries calling for quality health care without financial hardship – we encourage you to explore our social media toolkit [http://universalhealthcoverageday.org/toolkit/] and interactive map of global events [http://universalhealthcoverageday.org/global-events/]. You can also follow us on Twitter [https://twitter.com/UHC_Day] and Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/UHCDay/] to participate in the #HealthForAll conversation.

Beyond 12.12 itself, stay tuned for updates from the historic UHC Forum in Tokyo, Japan (12 to 15 December), which will feature the launch of the new WHO/World Bank Global Monitoring Report on Universal Health Coverage, with new financial protection data from 132 countries. http://universalhealthcoverageday.org/forum/

Together, we can work toward stronger, more equitable health systems.

In solidarity,
Secretariat of the Universal Health Coverage Coalition

Is Hodges' model a selection machine?

Sober (1984) Child's toy
"It is gratifying to find these biological ideas already enshrined in the ordinary meaning of 'selection for' and 'selection of'. My young son has a toy which takes all the mystery out of this distinction. Plastic discs with circles cut out of them are stacked with spaces in between in a closed cylinder. Top-most disc contains very big holes, and the holes decrease in size as one moves down from disc to disc. At the top of the cylinder are found balls of different sizes. A good shaking will distribute the balls to their respective levels. The smallest balls end up arrayed at the bottom. The next smallest sized balls settle at the next level up, and so on. It happens that the balls of the same size also happen to have the same color. Shaking sends the black balls to the bottom, the pink to the next level up, and so on. The whole cylinder (plus paternal administered shaking) is a selection machine. The device selects for small balls (these are the ones which pass to the bottom). It does not select for black balls (even though these are the ones that pass to the bottom). But when we ask after a shaking what was selected, it is equally correct to say that the black balls were selected and that the small ones were. 'Selection for' focuses on causes; 'selection of' picks out effects." p.50-51.

SOCIAL MOBILITY


SOCIAL MOBILITY COMMISSION



Please see (for context):

BBC News

Social mobility board quits over lack of progress
"Mr Milburn, a former health secretary, took up his role at the commission in July 2012, under the coalition government led by David Cameron and Nick Clegg.Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, he said divisions in Britain were becoming wider - pointing to the ongoing squeeze on wages.
The government lacked the "bandwidth" to tackle social division while also dealing with Brexit, he said, describing his task as being like "pushing water uphill".
[My emphasis]

As can be seen, in broad terms, above, Hodges' model can help to promote awareness of holistic bandwidth, facilitating reflective practice, critical and transdisciplinary thinking and person-centeredness. Social mobility is clearly sociopolitical.

What to do next:

• try to find out more about the situation and speak to the person alone and in private
• reassure them that it is safe for them to speak
• only ask non-judgmental relevant questions
• allow the person time to tell you their experiences do not make promises you cannot keep
• do not let concerns you may have about challenging cultural beliefs stand in the way of
making informed assessments about the safety of a child, young person or adult
• speak to your manager, colleagues or local safeguarding leads for advice.

Signs of trafficking

If the person:
• is accompanied by someone who appears controlling, who insists on giving information and speaking for them
• is withdrawn and submissive, seems afraid to speak to anyone in authority
• provides vague and inconsistent explanations of where they live, employment or schooling
• has old or serious injuries left untreated
• provides vague information, is reluctant to explain how the injury occurred or reluctant to provide a medical history
• is not registered with a GP, nursery or school
• has experienced being moved locally, regionally, nationally or internationally

Data, Information, Knowledge defined c/o McGonigle & Mastrian

Graves and Corcoran (1989) drew from Blum (1986) to define the three concepts as follows: (1) data are discrete entities described objectively without interpretation; (2) information is data that are interpreted, organised, or structured; and (3) knowledge is information that is synthesized so that relationships are identified and formalized. Drawing on this work, Nelson (1982, 2002) defined wisdom as the appropriate application of knowledge to the management and solution of human problems.  
Data, which are processed to create information and then knowledge, may be obtained from individuals, familes, communities, and populations and the environment in which they exist. Data, information, knowledge, and wisdom are of concern to nurses in all areas of practice. For example, data derived from direct care of an individual may then be compiled across persons and aggregated for decision making by nurses, nurse administrators, or other health professionals. Further aggregation may address communities and populations. Nurse educators may create case studies using these data, and nurse researchers may access aggregated data for systematic study. pp.97-98.

"There is no such thing as society." 
Margaret Thatcher

"In the article to which my first article was a response you dwelt at length on the practical difficulty of making the ICC [International Criminal Court] work, and the related likelihood that its existence will reduce the US willingness to police the world. ... in essence your argument is that there is no such a thing as an 'international community', and therefore only an historically evolved practice of law-governedness in tribal, ethnic or national settings can work. And because there is no 'international community' the assumptions and hopes of human rights advocates are bound to fail, based as they are on what you take to be the false idea that humankind can be holistically viewed as a nation or tribe writ large."

Gagné nine events in E-learning

In checking through more books, I revisited Khan and Ally's International Handbook of E-Learning. Chapter 10 by Florence Martin includes several models for instructional design. My in-situ pencil notes from 2015 reminded me of Figure 10.1 "Adaptation of Gagné's nine events" (Gagné and Driscoll, 1988).

I found a version on Pinterest:

Gagné's nine events


Martin and others refer to "Present Stimulus" as "Present the Content" and this is what stands out. If Hodges' model was realised within an online reflective workbench then the student would be engaged in creating the content. The student becomes the stimulus, generating the content.

Pinterest provides another version which sums up quite nicely the potential of Hodges' model. It was brainstorming and developments in mind-mapping that prompted my interest. Structure can gain attention. Structure might also invite interaction. Hodges' model presents a space in which the contents might be manipulated? The initial blank space might also indicate an objective. A series of care or knowledge domains may also invite reflection on a practical experience, a patient or carer encounter.

Gagné's nine events

What follows from Present the content in Gagné's nine events remains a challenge, but if you understand what Hodges' model is and its application then you may also see its potential.

Barefoot Thinking

As Leadbeater described through Illich in the previous post we need a transformation from healthcare supplied as a service to individual personal responsibility for health and wellbeing. How can this be brought about though?

The power of grassroots, social movements is well established, even if since 2009 the idealism of the Internet as a force for positive change and democracy has been somewhat undermined.

As a force for positive change and exposing the thinking and skills of the poor, Leadbeater also highlights the creation of the Barefoot College by Bunker Roy and barefoot thinking. The poor do have skills and knowledge that can effect change and community growth.

Situated and capable across all contexts, Hodges' model can help facilitate personal responsibility and self-care. In addition to supporting the learning of health and social care professionals, Hodges' model can also provide a conceptual scaffold as barefoot thinkers redefine professionalism.

Personal Responsibility





Service



We have been schooled to regard health as a service delivered to us, when it should primarily be a responsibility we all exercise. In The Limits to Medicine Ivan Illich described a health system based on personal responsibility rather than service.
"Success in this personal task is in large part the result of the self-awareness, self-discipline, and inner resources by which each person regulates his own daily rhythm and actions, his diet and sexual activity... The level of public health corresponds to the degree to which the means and responsibility for coping with illness are distributed among the population."

Dear SSMJ Reader,

We are pleased to announce that the November 2017 issue of the South Sudan Medical Journal is now on our website - South Sudan Medical Journal. This issue means the journal has now been published for 10 years – we thank the many people who have made this possible: the SSMJ Editorial Board, the editing, IT and reviewing teams, and everyone who has submitted articles.

You can download this issue as a PDF or the individual articles listed below:

EDITORIAL
SSMJ marks ten years of continuous quarterly publication
With this issue in November 2017, the South Sudan Medical Journal marks its tenth anniversary of continuous uninterrupted quarterly publication since the first issue in February 2008.

ORIGINAL RESEARCH
Midwives’ knowledge and use of partographs at Juba Teaching Hospital, South Sudan 
The study found that despite good knowledge of the partograph, about half of the providers do not use them. We recommend training and recruitment of more qualified midwives.

Frequency and causes of ocular trauma among children attending Mulago Hospital Eye Department
The frequency of ocular trauma amongst children attending Mulago Hospital is high, one in every five children seen at the eye clinics had ocular trauma.

MAIN ARTICLE
Multi-disciplinary stroke care in developing countries – lessons from the Wessex-Ghana Stroke Partnership 
Stroke care is multifaceted and complex, and therefore any approach to developing specialised stroke care must take the various facets into account.

CASE STUDY
Facial and eye injury following a fridge cylinder gas explosion 
Gas cylinder explosions may result in life threatening and severe ocular injury if not properly managed. Early presentation and effective management resulted in good facial healing and vision in this patient.

SHORT ITEMS
The health of South Sudanese refugees: one million and counting.

Call for Evidence: Outdoor Recreation, Families and Wellbeing

Dear all,

Please find below the call for evidence for the Culture and Sport evidence programme's review on outdoor recreation, families and wellbeing. Please do share with your networks - either by forwarding this email or sending people this link <https://www.whatworkswellbeing.org/blog/call-for-evidence-outdoor-recreation-families-and-wellbeing/>.

The deadline for submissions is 13 Dec 2017.


CALL FOR EVIDENCE: OUTDOOR RECREATION, FAMILIES AND WELLBEING
HOW DO OUTDOOR RECREATION ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES AFFECT WELLBEING? DO YOU HAVE EVIDENCE FROM YOUR ORGANISATION?
The What Works Centre for Wellbeing is reviewing the evidence on how participating in outdoor recreation can affect the wellbeing of families.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

There is evidence being outdoors in the natural environment- whether ‘green’ (land-based) or ‘blue’ (water-based)- benefits our physical and mental health, and wellbeing. It has been shown to improve mood and self-esteem, reduce anxiety and depression, and impact positively on social relations.

Evidence also suggests that an adult or child’s physical activity and engagement in outdoor environments is impacted by whether their family encourages or resists these pursuits.

The aim of this systematic review is to assess the self-reported wellbeing outcomes of outdoor recreation in family contexts and examine the processes by which these wellbeing outcomes are achieved.

WHAT WILL OUR REVIEW LOOK AT?
  • What? We will look at participation in recreational outdoor activities (in which family members are watching or taking part) and where the intervention is designed to enhance wellbeing.
  • Who? Families – whether they live in the same household or not. This will include any group of 2 or more people who are in a relationship or related to each other – whether they are siblings, parents/children, or other members of family networks.
  • How? The review will also look at examples of the process by which wellbeing outcomes are achieved.
  • Types of activities may include: games, exercise, outdoor adventure and recreation, walking & hiking, cycling, riding, skating, picnics, surfing, swimming, bird watching, camping, angling, sailing, geocaching, etc.
  • Outdoor spaces may include: streets, parks, mountains, beaches, allotments, rivers & canals, and other ‘green’ or ‘blue’ spaces, etc.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

We are looking for good quality evidence that can help us answer these questions, in particular ‘grey literature’.

By grey literature we mean “literature that is not formally published in sources such as books or journal articles.” This may be produced by charities, governments, businesses, community groups and others; and may include reports, theses or dissertations, trials, and more.

In this instance we are looking for evaluation reports.

We are looking for evidence that meets the following criteria:
  • submissions must be evaluation reports only
  • reports submitted must be completed in the past 10 years (2007-2017) and include author details (individuals, groups or organisations). We can only accept evidence which can be made publicly available.
  • evaluation methods may be qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods
  • the central report objective must be the measurement of wellbeing outcomes and/or evaluation of the processes by which wellbeing outcomes are achieved
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EVIDENCE

Please send your submissions electronically to the What Works Centre for Wellbeing
evidence AT whatworkswellbeing.org
- with the subject line Call for evidence: families and outdoor recreation.

All submissions should be received by 13 December 2017.

Please note that evidence can only be reviewed for inclusion in the work of the Culture and Sport programme if submitted through this call. Evidence submitted to individual researchers in the programme cannot be considered. If you have previously sent documents to the culture and sport team please re-submit through this call.

RESEARCH PROTOCOL

You can find the full research protocol for this review on PROSPERO<https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=80429>, at this link: https://tinyurl.com/y8xcqewb

social graph portability

& care graph portability

care graph portability


Of course, social graph portability and care graph portability do not bear comparison. Social graph portability is still contested as the media reveals. But 'care graph portability' is stretching it...

In this post I wish to point out the internal transactions (conceptual portability - facets - patterns) that are needed to achieve person centred and holistic care at the individual level. This can then be integrated. Throughout an individual episode of care, to recovery and staying well this 'care graph portability' can be said to be achieved through reflective practice that also engages the patient and carer(s) to facilitate self-care and health literacy. This is true portability in the care context.
