While I am crossing two paths, such as medicine and technology, I see that there are often barriers to understanding the two, but I want to know from the researchers who deal with both what challenges still exist.
Relevant answer
Answer
I am not a researcher, but dealing with policy formulation and strategy design in the context of digital transformation of health systems. Among what I have observed almost consistently over time, there is a lot of naivety: on site of technocrats as it concerns the complexity and "maturity" of the health care delivery system, on side of health professionals the expectation, technology would fix their problems ..., compounded by a lack of patience of politicians, policy makers and the industry.
Understanding 'maturity' of health systems for applying digital technologies is a key factor for designing systems that work. See for example:
Carvalho, J. V., Rocha, Á., van de Wetering, R., & Abreu, A. (2019). A Maturity model for hospital information systems. Journal of Business Research, 94, 388–399. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jbusres.2017.12.012

Hola, estimado colega, saludos cordiales. Que bueno es encontrar personas que hagan psicoterapia y con las que se puede compartir. Trataré de responder, con mi modesta opinión, las tres preguntas implícitas en su escrito.
Cada día surgen en el mundo, más y nuevas técnicas de psicoterapia y una de ellas es a la que usted se ha adscrito. Sin importar la técnica de psicoterapia que un terapeuta aplique, siempre encontraremos un objetivo común, que no es otro que calmar o hacer desaparecer la ansiedad de nuestros casos. Cualquiera que sea el camino que siga, la escuela que siga, la corriente que siga, la técnica que siga, su objetivo va a ser siempre el mismo.
Además, nuestros pacientes acuden demandando ayuda porque se sienten agobiados por la ansiedad, que en su caso es paralizante y no les permite satisfacer las demandas de la vida, por tanto frente al miedo, aparecerán los mecanismos de evitación o enfrentamiento patológico a lo temido o a la situación que ocasiona miedo y frente a ese miedo, lo primero que harán es huir, huir de lo temido, en segundo lugar buscarán apoyo y en tercer lugar necesitan patológicamente también, reafirmación social, estas tres predisposiciones patológicas mantienen al sujeto atado a sus miedos, porque actúan como reforzadores negativos, que lo “calman por breve plazo”, para nuevamente aparecer la ansiedad o miedo que los mantiene sumergidos en su drama personal como un círculo vicioso.
Por otra parte, en la actualidad por vivir en un mundo tan convulso, donde los problemas superan a los tradicionalmente observados a lo largo de la historia, se aconseja para todos los psicoterapeutas, prepararse y conocer todas las escuelas de psicoterapia que han existido a lo largo de la historia de la humanidad, conocer, por su gran cantidad de técnicas, las más practicadas a lo largo de los años; se trata de que el profesional tenga una vasta formación en psicoterapia, que sea un experto conocedor de las estrategias en psicoterapia, recursos en psicoterapia y técnicas en psicoterapia, que sea un gran conocedor del manejo de los momentos en una psicoterapia y, por supuesto, que sea un gran conocedor de la técnica a la cual se adscribe. ¿Por qué?
Porque los problemas que se enfrentan hoy en la práctica médica psiquiátrica, nada tienen que ver con los problemas que se enfrentaban años atrás, desbordan la especialidad y desbordan, metafóricamente hablando, las ciencias médicas y, por tanto el abordaje que se exige hoy para el afrontamiento de fenómenos causales complejos, exige el uso de técnicas multimodales, abordarlo desde diferentes aristas, desde diferentes ángulos y, para no ser eclécticos en psicoterapia sino ser integrativos y manejar la conducta del paciente con la estrategia, método y técnica en psicoterapia que él necesita, debemos estar adscritos a una técnica en psicoterapia la cual debemos conocer hasta la saciedad y, por sobre todas las cosas, durante todo el proceso de tratamiento no podemos perder el basamento teórico de la técnica de psicoterapia que estoy aplicando (de donde viene el VRET y conocer las demás psicoterapias de la escuela conductista y neo conductista, cuáles son sus momentos, es decir no perder la razón que le da sustento a la técnica VRET por quien la aportó, bajo ningún concepto). Esto es lo que le permite ser integrativo en psicoterapia y darle a cada paciente lo que necesita y no caer en el eclecticismo de conveniencia tan frecuente en nuestros tiempos.
Muy mal el ejemplo desde mí, pero por ética no puedo hacerlo con otro. Por ejemplo, yo practico hace años una técnica cognitiva, publicada en Research Gate, sin perder el basamento teórico de esta psicoterapia, que es la elevación de la ansiedad hasta el máximo tolerable para el paciente, grupo, pareja, familia y, hasta que no vea que muchos han roto la barrera emotivo racional en el grupo, no comienzo con el manejo en la sesión de las tres predisposiciones que aparecen frente al miedo (la huida, la búsqueda de apoyo y la necesidad de reafirmación social o necesidad de reconocimiento social), ya una vez logrado un clima emocional donde muchos hayan hecho su experiencia emocional correctiva dentro de la sesión, comienzo a integrar técnicas, recursos y estrategias de otras psicoterapias y escuelas como la de Albert Ellis, del análisis transaccional de Eric Berne, de la neurolingüística, de Beck, la escuela Gestáltica, de la centrada en el cliente, entre muchas más, SIN PERDER EL BASAMENTO TEÓRICO DE LA PSICOTERAPIA DE MULTIEMPUJE QUE HAGO; para luego del cierre, hacer una relajación autógena de Shultz, de Jacobnson, una visualización curativa o una hipnosis ligera colectiva durante media hora, para calmar la ansiedad y que puedan continuar reflexionando y enfrentar el resto de las tareas del día. Como puedes apreciar, mi fuerte es la psicoterapia de multiempuje y en dependencia a lo que necesite cada uno, con lo que necesite cada persona en la psicoterapia es que hago valer como enfoque integrativo. No es lo que yo quiera que él vea, es lo que él necesita.
Como puedes apreciar, ahora estoy en condiciones de responder tu primera interrogante, aunque todas están parcialmente resueltas. Yo no diría que esa técnica está diseñada para utilizar como complemento y para ayudar a las personas que necesitan rehabilitación, sería una visión muy reduccionista, todo depende del ingenio del psicoterapeuta. Esta técnica como todas las que vienen de la escuela conductista, me recuerda a la desensibilización progresiva de Wolpe, al modelado de acercamiento gradual tan utilizado en psicoterapias para tratar disfunciones sexuales y los miedos en los niños; pero el alcance se hace mayor, en la medida que puedas verla como una modalidad de psicoterapia y, como en todas, dentro de las variables implicadas en el proceso, esta la personalidad del terapeuta, la suya (incluyo su conocimiento de psicoterapia), pues hacer psicoterapia es arte que no todos podemos hacer. En cuanto a si sirve solo para el trastorno de estrés postraumático y las fobias, nada más, lo pongo en duda, todo está en el conocimiento del terapeuta y de las habilidades que ha adquirido en el tiempo.
Otro cuestionamiento es si esta técnica tiene sus contraindicaciones, yo soy del criterio que la práctica te enseña quien debe tratarse con esta técnica o no y, por lo general muchas técnicas tienen contraindicaciones, fíjate en la que hacemos en mi centro como tiene contraindicaciones, eso no demerita la técnica, todo lo contrario, la valoriza porque cuidas al paciente.
Por lo que dices, en el último párrafo, veo que has analizado como quieres introducirle una serie de técnicas que te garanticen una mayor resiliencia del sujeto; soy del criterio que toda psicoterapia habilita en resiliencia a toda persona. Sugiero valores el entrenamiento en habilidades sociales como el manejo de lo tácito y lo asertivo.
Hasta aquí mi respuesta, espero satisfacer tus expectativas y desearte éxitos profesionales. Intuyo que eres una persona joven, en franco proceso de desarrollo como psicoterapeuta, con muchas inquietudes y con una mente abierta al diálogo. Decirte que, en lo que te pueda ayudar, cuenta conmigo, es por eso, por lo que le está pasando, que en mi país se supervisa a diario al psicoterapeuta hasta que pueda correr solo.
TODA PSICOTERAPIA ES BUENA Y TODAS AYUDAN AL PACIENTE, SOLO DEPENDE DE SU BUENA PRÁCTICA, CONOCIMIENTO Y HABILIDADES DEL EQUIPO, HAY QUE RECORDAR QUE EN PSICOTERAPIA UNA PALABRA, BIEN O MAL DICHA, CURA O MATA.
Si en algo te ayudé, me sentiré satisfecho, saludos cordiales colega, continúa así.

Question

I am trying to figure out the best way to move forward, career-wise. I feel there are two large parts of me that need to be satisfied. The first is my curious nature and enjoyment of knowledge. The second is my desire to help people (directly). I joined a PhD program because of my curiosity, it was basically a default decision/obvious next step. Thinking generally, this PhD program allows me the time to develop the skills to ask and answer scientific questions (ie explore my curiosity): finding the appropriate questions to ask and how to answer them with literature reading, hypothesis generation, experimental design, benchwork, and scientific communication. However, I definitely feel I am missing the other major part of me, the desire to help people. I am currently working on cancer biology, which is very interesting and important, but to me it only helps people indirectly (advance the field, provide theoretical targets, etc.). I feel I am missing a humanitarian, human to human connection. If the action is to explore my curiosity, then the motivation is to help people (I am not sure if this will make sense to anyone). Right now it feels as though I am only able to focus on being curious. I also feel that a PhD will only allow me to be curious and not allow me to help people individually. Please excuse my ignorance of the health field, but I think the inverse of this feeling is encapsulated by being a nurse. Where I would only be helping people and not able to also explore my curiosities as freely. This is why I think I am drawn to a MD/PhD. In my extremely limited mind, and knowledge of both fields (research/healthcare), it feels like having the trade skills of helping/treating people (MD) as well as the skills of exploration/curiosity (PhD) are what will be required for me to approach satisfaction. Granted I have no idea what is available, career-wise, for a PhD that allows direct helping of people (other than mentoring/teaching - which I am also interested in), and this is why I pose this question to everyone. I understand how little I know about the research field, as well as the healthcare field, and I am open to all points of view.

SPSS or STATA? Python or R? Jamovi or JASP?
Relevant answer
Answer
R is a language, so you will find a lot of your early weeks (months!) spent learning how the language works and trying to remember your vocabulary. If you are also trying to learn data analysis at the same time, this results in constant interference between the task of language learning and the task of learning data analysis.
For these reasons I would recommend jamovi. The interface is transparently simple, and it encourages good data analysis habits. You can perform quite complex (and some very advanced) analyses in jamovi, and the library of modules is growing all the time.
For data manipulation and meta-data, Stata is remarkably powerful. Labelling variables, values, and datasets, merging, cleaning, consistency-checking are unrivalled. I know people who pre-process their data in Stata before moving it to R because of these strengths.
Both jamovi and Stata have excellent videos, and the Stata manuals are comprehensive, with every command illustrated with worked examples. You can learn a lot of stats from them!
One big plus to jamovi, of course, is that it's free!
Given that you are doing a masters, I would not recommend R. By the time you get up to speed, it may be time to go!

Answer
Hello, I don't mean to be discouraging, but I feel some constructive criticism could help you obtain better data from your survey. When asking about the years of experience, make sure that the ranges do not overlap (your survey has 0-2, 2-5 etc., but it should be 0-2, 3-5 ...), as this can be confusing. Additionally, if you want data that is as accurate as possible, you should employ the services of an English language editor, as some of the questions are, at least to me, somewhat confusingly formed. Good luck with your research and best wishes :) !

The idea is to find out what tools and platforms would be useful across different projects, and then integrate them into a shared "sandbox" that could save time for researchers, and make collaboration between project teams easier. Our long-term goals is to help accelerate development of advanced telehealth applications, in order to improve healthcare access and equity.
If you are or have been involved in related projects, we'd like to ask you a few question (on phone or via email) to get your feedback on the concept.
Send me a message if you'd be willing to correspond, and please refer us to others you think might be interested.

Great point, Shafagat Mahmudova and great reference.
We are definitely envisioning this as a support for prototyping, or perhaps pre-prototyping, when you are just testing various approaches or various components of the idea. And it would be pre-patient, before we need to deal with privacy and consent issues.
We're assuming that, if you prove out some of your early architecture decisions and build out a business case, you will start to move towards a first-draft operational model. At that point, there will be a variety of options, both for a secure data platform as well as AI tool platform.
One strategy in accelerating innovation is to lower friction at very early stages, e.g. reduce the cost of trying something out. That's what we're imagining, and why we're asking for feedback. What specific features / functions would be useful at that stage?

Burnout is a psychological syndrome, characterized by high emotional exhaustion and depersonalization and low professional accomplishment (see Maslach's definition and MBI scale for measuring it), which is very common among medical residents. In literature, work factors that contribute to physician burnout include excessive workloads, long working hours, specialty choice, frequent call duties, high emotional demands, workplace violence, bullying, bad management and many others. Is burnout a serious concern and what are the main determinants or risk factors for healthcare worker's burnout syndrome in your country?
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes, burnout among physicians is very common. The main determinants in my setting are inadequate numbers of doctors, excessive work loads, poor remuneration in the main stream workplace forcing healthcare workers to add on locums in order to bridge the salary gap. This ultimately ends up with excessive fatigue and some psychosomatic symptoms.

Question

Operations research techniques are used widely in the scientific literature to support decision-making problems in healthcare. However, such methods are rarely applied in practice? What are the obstacles? What could be the solution?
Relevant answer
Answer
Indeed, operations research (OR) and management science (MS) methods are not consistently used in practice for healthcare management decision-making. A report published by National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine (Reid et al, 2005) states in an unusually blunt way, “In fact, relatively few health care professionals or administrators are equipped to think analytically about health care delivery as a system or to appreciate the relevance of engineering tools. Even fewer are equipped to work with engineers to apply these tools.”
Thus, it is often difficult for many administrators to appreciate the role of MS and OR methodology in the healthcare delivery process. A wide gap exists between the OR and MS publications that urge the use of this methodology in healthcare settings but provide few or no practical examples, and the publications with examples that are too specialized and complex for digesting by a typical hospital administrator. This gap is probably one of the reasons why too many administrators still have a vague idea of the practical value of healthcare OR and MS methodology. Many of them simply do not see ‘what’s in it for me’.
On the other hand, OR and MS professionals/engineers do not always have enough knowledge of healthcare or the role of physicians in making not only clinical but also management decisions. Healthcare has a culture of rigid division of labor. This functional division does not effectively support the methodology that crosses the functional areas, especially if it assumes significant change in traditional relationships.
Nonetheless, to address the challenge of transforming the system of care delivery in practice, some leading healthcare organizations have adopted this area as a strategic priority. For example, the Mayo Clinic, one of the largest integrated medical centers in the USA, has defined the Science of Healthcare Delivery as one of its four strategic directions. The others are Quality, Individualized Medicine, and Integration (Fowler et al, 2011). The Mayo Clinic has also created the Center for the Science of Healthcare Delivery, a new initiative that will focus on creating improved approaches to how healthcare is delivered (Mayo Clinic, 2011).
The bottom line: physicians and healthcare administrators are not supposed to have the knowledge of the OR/MS methods. They are too busy with other problems. Rather, they are supposed to understand why traditional management approaches and education guess are usually not accurate, short-lived or unsustainable; which quantitative technique is more appropriate for addressing a particular managerial problem; what can be expected from a particular technique and what are its strengths and limitations. For example, is queuing analytic theory (QAT) or discrete event simulation (DES) appropriate methodology for addressing a particular problem? What are the caveats in Linear Optimization for staffing and scheduling? What technique is the most appropriate for making a particular forecast type and why? What is the best approach to the fair cost (savings) allocation? And so on…Collaboration and trust between the healthcare/physicians leaders and OR/MS professionals is the key to progress in this area.

Since, it is qualitative, the data that you have already got, I mean qualitative data, you can categorize based on some themes and sub-themes linking to you objectives/research questions. You need to have persuasive writing by strengthening you analysis with the words (quotation) from research participants. You can follow book of Creswell.

The first step to improving the quality of care at your organization is to analyze your existing data to understand where opportunities exist. You should analyze both your patient population and your organizational operations to identify areas for improvement.Once you’ve analyzed your patient population data to understand their risk and studied your practice operations to identify areas for improvement, it’s time to prioritize those areas and set goals.

When I see government responses to crises such as the corona virus, I see a non-systematic response that in the end is more painful for the economy and society.
.
Other things being equal, If governments took proactive responsibility and had a policy of given every citizen a minimum income per months for three months to cover at least rent and basic needs so they stay home at the beginning of the outbreak when people are healthy, they would save money as the number of sick people and therefore, the healthcare cost would be minimal. Proactive responsibility brings social, economic and environmental stability increasing the sustainability of the system during the crisis.
.
But governments seems to love reactive responsibility causing unnecessary economic and social pain as more people get sick trying to make a living during the crisis and the health care cost goes to the maximum. This is happening all over the world right now.
.
Which leads to the theoretical question from the sustainability angle, Is Corona virus response a classic case of lack of proactive government responsibility? I think yes, what do you think?
Relevant answer
Answer
The lockdowns introduced to specific industries and sectors of the economy, mainly to enterprises and companies operating in the tourist services sector, were aimed at slowing down the development of the pandemic, i.e. social transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus, reducing the scale of the number of infections of citizens with Coronavirus and reducing the number of people seriously ill with Covid-19 disease. In this way, the risk of failure of health care institutions was reduced, i.e. the risk of a situation in which there would be a shortage of beds in hospitals, ventilators, oxygen, etc., was reduced. On the other hand, the lockdowns introduced significantly increased the scale of the recession in the economy, which occurred to the greatest extent in the 2nd quarter of 2020. In addition, as part of the nationwide quarantine and the implementation of various anti-pandemic measures and instruments, certain restrictions were imposed chaotically without thorough research and analysis of the impact of specific anti-pandemic security instruments on the scale of the pandemic development. For example, during the first wave of the pandemic, i.e. in April 2020, together with other anti-pandemic safety measures and instruments, as part of crisis management during the first national quarantine, a ban was also introduced to enter city parks and forests. Citizens very quickly criticized such a solution on social networks, pointing out that instead of improving the pandemic situation, such a solution may have the opposite effect, i.e. a decrease in the overall resistance of the body to various external factors in a situation of long-term stay at home without the possibility of active rest and / or physical activity outdoors, including in city parks and / or forests. Due to strong criticism of this type of government actions by citizens, such anti-pandemic restrictions were quickly lifted. Criticism from citizens appeared mainly on social networks. It was a substantive, sarcastic and mocking criticism, and consequently effective. However, on the other hand, the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic on the scale of 2020 appeared for the first time. At the beginning of the 1st wave of the pandemic, it was not known what the scale of the global economy recession would be. The first forecasts of a decline in the economic growth rate, which appeared at that time, forecasted a recession of a dozen or so percent in the economy for 2020. Therefore, in the framework of the first such large-scale instruments of anti-pandemic security and crisis management, errors could occur, which were usually not repeated during subsequent anti-pandemic restrictions introduced during subsequent national quarantines introduced during subsequent pandemic waves.

Right now, most medical students in the UK are presented with research opportunities through their med school research societies, which compile projects for them once or twice a year. At Leicester Med School, the amazing student leaders managed to compile 25 research roles, and had over 200 applications within a short 3 weeks. That means that there are 10 applicants for every 1 research project. Medics are hungry to help with research!
Without these fantastic research societies, it would be 25 less students with research roles for their CV. But what happens now to the many who weren't successful? They'll have to wait another half a year to a year for yet another cycle of research projects to be compiled for them.
But is this manual process really the most optimal way of getting medical students the experience they need?

We are looking for the datasets that can be used for evaluating fairness models in machine learning on real data. Could you recommend a labeled dataset in which the labeling reveals some unfair decision process. E.g., unfair decisions in hiring, courts, healthcare etc.
Relevant answer
Answer
I would recommend trying a disruptive approach, which follows the human process against unfair decisions:
-identify worst cases you could think of, with bias, discrimination, unfair decisions observed and documented.
-identify steps which led to such decisions
You can perform machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning to get to a bad systematically unfair "automated decision agent".
You can define a similarity measure between the "automated decision agent" you are trying to build, and these negative reference scenarios embedded in the unfair "automated decision agents" you have gathered.
As the learning system progresses towards the target "automated decision agent" you can iterate similarity measure computations with the bad unfair references, and when you get too close, an alarm is raised.
There are many ways to address reducing this risk at the next learning batch: introduce a repulsive gradient along the negative reference(s), build a Lagragian driving you away from it, etc...
Does it help you build a robust algorithm?

Health care and health service priorities are complex - particularly at the global level. Different countries and different communities (national and international) have different resources, different political systems, and different priorities. Which are the most important?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr Dean Whitehead , health promotion is extremely critical in the current global COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 clearly shows that health is a personal issue, and there is an urgent need to equip the general folks, especially the old people with the right health knowledge, so that they can take their own responsibility to keep themselves healthy and fit. Without the involvement and prompt action of the general people in maintaining their own health, little can be done by the medical professors, doctors, hospitals, communities, government health promotion organizations and the countries at all.
In the COVID-19 disease, the main issue is not the virial infection caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus, but is our bodies' excessive immunological response to the infected organs - the cytokine storm. This cytokine storm destroys all cells near the focus of infection and kills the respiratory system. Because of this, the old people with underlying health problems are the most vulnerable people to COVID-19. Yet, most of the modern civilization diseases like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer's disease and many more, are caused by over nutrition:
These civilization diseases can only be solved by food intake restriction, which is the personal responsibility of our own as patients. If we don't take our own responsibility to make the change in lifestyle, there is little the doctors can do to alleviate the situation, as the source of the problem, over nutrition, is still persisting. In this regard, we can say that the best physician in this world is actually the patient himself, as clearly stated by Luigi Cornaro in his book “The Art of Living Long”:
"Therefore, I say again, from all these reasons it follows that it is impossible for anyone to be a perfect physician of another. Since, then, a man can have no better doctor than himself, and no better medicine than a temperate life, he should by all means embrace that life."

Inconsistent medical data have grave effects on proper planning of health care system. How can the problems of inconsistency in medical data be tackled, in various health institutions?
Relevant answer
Answer
The question becomes the degree to which national economies are affected by disease burdens when the nature of that burden is unclear because of different standards of reportage. Similarly, if you mean data on supply--for instance ventilators or certain medications--if unreliable the limits of those records will result in a lack of resources at treatment sites. The effect on the economy in the first will involve the cost of unanticipated disease incidence or the expansion of diseases (for example in epidemic cases) that might have been anticipated, with better records, and thus better prepared for. Similarly, if it's about supply of equipments or pharmaceuticals the shortages that result from inconsistent records will mean either higher costs for emergency purchase or higher mortality/morbidity in the absence of necessary equipment or pharmaceuticals. If the numbers are sufficient--for instance provision of vaccines, or undercounting of those with critical conditions requiring extensive medication, the effect may be broadly economic as well as clnical.

Obesity should be defined by a person's health - not just their weight, says a new Canadian clinical guideline.
It also advises doctors to go beyond simply recommending diet and exercise.
Instead, they should focus on the root causes of weight gain and take a holistic approach to health.
The guideline, which was published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal on Tuesday, specifically admonished weight-related stigma against patients in the health system.
"The dominant cultural narrative regarding obesity fuels assumptions about personal irresponsibility and lack of willpower and casts blame and shame upon people living with obesity," the guideline, which is intended to be used by primary care physicians in diagnosing and treating obesity in their daily practice, states.
Ximena Ramos-Salas, the director of research and policy at Obesity Canada and one of the guideline's authors, said research shows many doctors discriminate against obese patients, and that can lead to worse health outcomes irrespective of their weight.
"Weight bias is not just about believing the wrong thing about obesity," she told the BBC. "Weight bias actually has an effect on the behavior of healthcare practitioners."
