Culture and healthcare: When medicine and culture intersect

This video from The Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) provides advice and key learnings on culture and physician care.

Culture incorporates a mix of beliefs and behaviours that define the values of communities and social groups. All physicians have their own cultural background, and most doctors practising in Canada are accustomed to providing care to patients from different backgrounds. Moreover, physicians are increasingly aware of the way in which culture can shape the practice of healthcare and influence health outcomes.

While it is common to speak of cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity, physicians and other providers are increasingly recognizing the importance of cultural competence and providing cultural safety to patients.

Bringing mindfulness to healthcare | Bob McClure | TEDxSanDiegoSalon

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The digital medicine revolution is a convergence of information technology, medical research, and the practice of medicine. It will personalize healthcare and create incredible new tools for wellness, but it also will add a layer of complexity and technological challenge to receive care and practice medicine.

Drawing from contemplative traditions and recent scientific research, secular mindfulness and compassion skills are tools that allow us figuratively to reach inside ourselves. In a sense these tools are mirror images of the technology that shapes our everyday lives.

Robert McClure LCSW, CEAP, is the manager for the Employee Assistance Program for Sharp HealthCare, San Diego CA., an integrated healthcare system with seven hospitals and 15,000 employees. Mr. McClure was trained by Stanford University’s Center for Compassion, Altruism, Research and Education (CCARE) in its Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program, which he teaches to employees as part of Sharp’s mission to transform health care.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care

Listen to the full episode here: http://www.ihi.org/resources/Pages/AudioandVideo/WIHI-The-Digital-Transformation-How-Technology-is-Helping-and-Hurting-Health-Care-.aspx

Look to your left. Now look to your right. Chances are, you just saw a computer. Probably more than one.

Technology is everywhere in health care — and for many reasons, that’s a good thing. It’s fast, it’s efficient, and it can reduce errors. What’s not to love?

Well, a lot. Technology is not a cure-all. It can make people complacent, introduce new errors, and get in the way of meaningful face-to-face interactions.

Still, love it or loathe it, technology is here to stay and we need to learn how to get the most value from the digital world that health care increasingly relies upon. That will be the focus of our conversation on the June 1 WIHI, The Digital Transformation: How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care. World-renowned patient safety experts Bob Wachter and Tejal Gandhi will share what they’re learning about technology’s impact (both positive and negative) on our industry.

The Empowered You: How Healthcare Is Evolving With Technology | Daniel Kraft | TEDxBeaconStreetSalon

Daniel Kraft has a vision of a healthcare system that trusts the patient to be involved with their own care. Through technology that can track everything from your heart rate to your blood pressure and hormonal levels, we have the power to know more about our bodies than ever before. What will it be like to have minute-by-minute information on our bodies? How would it change our habits? How will it change our healthcare system? Watch Daniel’s talk to learn about the medical care of the future!

Daniel Kraft is a Stanford & Harvard trained physician-scientist and innovator. Daniel has served as faculty chair Medicine at Singularity University since its inception, and is founder and curator of Exponential Medicine, a program exploring the impact and potential of rapidly developing technologies to reshape health and biomedicine. After undergrad at Brown, and medical school at Stanford, Daniel completed the combined Harvard Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency training at the MGH and Boston Children’s Hospital, and fellowships in hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford. His academic research focused on stem cell and regenerative medicine and branched into medical devices and digital health. Daniel is founder of RegenMed Systems (see his TED Talk on his invention the ‘MarrowMiner’) and more recently, IntelliMedicine, and advises many healthcare companies.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Embracing big data – the future of healthcare | Willem Herter & Wouter Kroese | TEDxSaxionUniversity

Embracing big data for the future of healthcare, a radical transformation in the way patients receive treatment.
When you, as a patient, sit in front of a doctor, the doctor does not have access to the right information what treatment works for you. Digitization of the world gives us the opportunity to make health care smarter and much much better. With the use of big data Wouter and Willem support docters in choosing the right medicine for the right person. They radically transformed the way we learn what treatment will help you when you get sick.

Willem Herter studied Theoretical Physics at the University of Amsterdam. During this period, Willem has founded a company in education helping high school students. Furthermore, Willem was a member of the voluntary board of the Dutch Cancer Society and has worked as data scientist for THNK: School for Creative Leadership.

Sarokaar – India’s healthcare challenges

Every year, 7th of April is celebrated as the World Health Day. In this edition of Sarokaar we try to explore the various health related concerns faced in India and how have we fared in tackling public healthcare.

A cursory look at the available data regarding healthcare suggests that a lot still needs to be done. A worrying rate of infant/maternal mortality, the swine flu outbreak, casualties due to Japanese Encephalitis, deaths from vaccine preventable diseases, poor or lack of medical equipment, etc. draws our attention to the reality which leaves a lot yet to be covered in terms of healthcare.

Public healthcare in India is still riddled with problem areas which need to be looked upon before it can be effective and available to all. Large population in our country is still deprived of quality and affordable healthcare.

Watch Sarokaar with eminent panellists bringing out various facets of the issue.

Guests: Shailaja Chandra (Former Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare) ; Prof. K Srinath Reddy (President, PHFI) ; Dr. Vandana Prasad (National Convener, Public Health Resource Network) ; Nitin Sethi (Associate Editor, Business Standard) ; Kanwar Singh Tanwar (MP, BJP & Member, Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare)

Anchor: Amrita Rai
