"Two choices for a free, informative booklet and DVD. Hey, Dr Lederman, we're back. We're back. We just talked about a woman who had two years of chemo. Don't work surgery didn't were cancer's back. And then this Doctor. The chemo doctor didn't have the strength or the fortitude to tell the patient the truth that the chemo didn't work. So why are these hospitals and doctors giving so much chemo? Why are they doing it? Well, there's a whole Siri's of exposes now, though. New York Times Very prestigious paper, written by Katie Thomas T H O M A S and Charles Ornstein o R, and S T E i n Over the last weeks on DH. I think if you had doubts before you can open up the paper, you could see the medical director the chief medical officer, the doctors in charge of all the doctors and the medical care. One of these big hospitals has now been exposed. There's a doctor already is making you make it a million and a half dollars a year. He's on the board of six. Pharmaceutical companies. Remember when you sit on the board of a company? First of all you're paying. So you got $3 million just to sit on the boards of those companies, but also to sit on the boards of a company means you're responsible for the finances of the company personally responsible. So there's a doctor whose chief medical officer at one of the biggest hospitals responsible for all the care and the doctors. And he's on the board of six pharmaceutical companies making $3 million and radiation company in other companies, and why's it exposed Now we know it's been going on. We've been talking about on the radio for years, I've been telling you about the nature between industry and the big hospitals, chemo doctors and why they love to give all this chemo Now you could get us understanding. Of these doctors who are financially responsible for these pharmaceutical companies sit on the board, and then they go back to the hospital. And what do they do So seems like you wonder whether they do. Where's her loyalty is their loyalty to sitting on the board of the Big pharmaceutical companies were they make millions or is their job where they make millions? Or is it taking care of you as a patient where their loyalties and when you see all these patients getting chemo on came on came on. Came on chemo endlessly, even when it's not working. You kind of have an idea. Well, this doctor why was he exposed while he was exposed? Not because he was taking the money, not because he was on the board. Not because he was saying, Oh, drug acts is a good drug. When the company that was making drug X stop production of the drug has it wasn't working. How could a doctor promote a drug that wasn't working for a company where he sits on the board? Where is his loyalty? Where is it? And then you find out that the chief CEO of the super duper Big Hospital also sits on the board of a big drug company. Where the loyalties why can't a doctor work for The patient. And that's what we do at 30 for Broadway. That's what we're talking about. We're independent cancer treatment center. We work for one person. We work for you or your loved one or your neighbor and we're not getting kickbacks from the drug companies and sitting on the boards. No, there's no mixed loyalty here. It's all for the patient. You could read about it yourself. And now this week another expose the super duper Big Hospital has a vice president who oversees. Remember these hospitals are charity hospitals or non profit hospitals. Well, the super duper big hospital as a doctor that oversees this is quote from The New York Times Overseas Hospital Ventures with For profit companies, so they're pushing out. They want to have relationships with for profit companies have a vice president. A doctor was only responsible for this and this doctor. Who was working for the hospital to have relationships with these companies made last week, a million and a half dollars. In one of his deals he invested, he got stock options himself. While he was working for the hospital to establish relationships between the hospital and these pharmaceutical industries. Other places bar their employees from such deals in New York. The super duper big places they employ was making it a million and a half hours in one week, and they said the vice president overseas hospital ventures with for profit companies. As compensation for representing the hospital on the biotech boards. This doctor received stock options whose value Zord when the start starts up, went public a week ago. He's been involved with multiple startups. He signed a deal with his super duper big hospital. Stock options were worth $675,000. Other stock options were worth another $616,000. And he had other shares.

Can Victoria get it done in three more weeks?
"Sino Men People Victoria had been working really hard for weeks and weeks now to try to get the numbers down there and they've gone from seven hundred ish new cases of Covid Day Dan to two hundred in about three weeks. I'm sorry there's another three weeks before those restrictions are due to the stage four restrictions. How likely is that going to be able to go back to a normal way of life at that time? There are a lot of variables I think is highly unlikely that people will be going back to a normal way of life in Victoria for a long time to come, for example, mandatory mass to be out there for a long time to come what's a long time I don't know the answer to that question. But really for quite awhile, and certainly it's going to be a help to have mandatory masks when they do start relieving restrictions I think we're going to be very nervous about lifting restrictions with anything more than zero spreads. So that's what they're expected expecting but I think that's Unlikely, in three weeks and people getting tired in D., H. S.. So you've got some incredibly hard workers who the contact tracing the testing who are running teams and they're getting really tired. It's emotionally difficult for them. They're they're doing incredible work as indeed are victorians under this lockdown you'd have to say so an since which those teams hold together manage to actually go the distance themselves and then are those teams really being held by the system. So you've got h care that still a problem Victoria it's not at all clear the extent to which you've got healthcare worker problems in hospitals. They were very late telling us about the role Melbourne break. There were probably late telling us about the Franks hospital. If to save face or political problems, they're not telling us about hospital outbreaks and those continue and they're being spread to patients. I don't know whether they are not one here's anecdotes, but if they don't get in there and solve those very specific problems of high risk workplaces like food, processing storage, and so on. And each care and hospitals then they could continue to be sources of outbreaks moving forward. So has the department got the capacity to get in there and just as a matter of interest for you the that's not the responsibility of Brett Sutton chief health officer. There are other by teen structure in Victoria, and they have a chief medical officer who's in charge of safety and quality in healthcare and the and the bureaucrats obviously have a major responsibility here. So let's hope that they can get on top of that to control the epidemic. What's Christmas look in Victoria look they could be zero spread certainly by Christmas we. Should be zero spread well before that but it's this ability to actually get in there and deal with that and deal with it transparency transparently and shine a light on where the problems and admit to it because admitting to it is not just taking flak in the press. This is about actually the whole system being organized around with our full who points of the outbreak, and we know that there are focal points already and just telling us what their efforts are in those areas and their strategy because at the moment I suspect some daughter are being hidden from us and we don't know and I don't think they're going to get zero spreading unless they can sort that out. Well, we've got some. Feedback and some clarifications from audience and thank you all so much for talking to us and letting us know what you're thinking about when you're listening. I'm recalling clarification corner that's right and so the first clarification to clarify is that we asked you guys to send in how long it was taking tests to come back where you live and we said that remote parts of Australia it was taking twenty four to forty eight hours and then in Melbourne in Victoria it was taking about five days and people saying that Nar, lots of friends and family getting Melvin test results back in twenty four to forty eight hours. True. So maybe there was a bit of a self selecting bias there as a health. And Science report is we should be on that but thanks for keeping us on ties with that one you guys ended no defense. We did say it was anecdotal, but that's not us being defensive. We should have probably emphasized that and I have another question for clarification, which comes from our episode where she can go back and find which is why vaccines mandatory and we talked about their research, which showed the suggested what the order of symptoms where which started with fever went to cough and so on and quite rightly people have written in and saying that is not to be taken as Gospel absolutely is right. The any of the symptoms that you get in any order it doesn't you don't. Have to fever go and get tested. So Muscle sore throat that sort of thing get tested fevers essential and another thing that we're getting a lot from you guys on is questions about vaccine. So we thought we would do a quick fire Monday on vaccines and just try to cover up as many of your questions as possible. So Norman you ready to answer some vaccine questions off too deep breath ready to go. Now, how is an unvaccinated person a threat to a vaccinated person? So I take it this comes from comments at government level where people are saying well, if you're not immunized, you won't get on a train or you want to go to an office situation and what have you What's the problem with that? If everybody else is vaccinated well. The fact of the matter is that. This issue of Herod Immunity. and. The more people who are immunized the less circulating ours you've got and the less have spreading it. So a big reason why you want ninety five percent of kids in their first year of life to be immunized and a lot of the rest of us to be reunited as well as so there's not much around. So kids who are vulnerable in the first three or four months of life don't catch hooping cough. So in a sense you, we are trying to remove the burden of disease in the community how they distributed, but it's Unclear but I would imagine through general patches through pharmacies and also targeted immunization programs to healthcare workers and heath care centers, and so on. It would be very silver to try and create a whole new process. For this, we've got recognize immunizing the public and that's what we should use. In this case just make sure it was just the right place because you're going to maintain a call chain. So the viruses are active and effective when when you get to the point of delivering is there enough evidence to suggest that it's safe not yet. Which is why those phase three trials. So important, it doesn't take that many cases to actually find out whether it works and human beings. Maybe four hundred people need to be infected with covid nineteen in vaccine experiment so that the two hundred, the placebo two, hundred in the active group to find out whether it works but you gotTa do it maybe thirty thousand people to find out that it's safe just to be sure that rare side effects don't emerge. The answer is no particular question on pregnant women will it be safe? Pregnant women? The answer is unknown at this stage. It's known that the influenza vaccine is safe is very safe in pregnant women, and in fact, pregnant women must be immunized for influence because you do not want to catch influence when you're pregnant. And you don't want to be to catch it two straight after birth. So pregnancies. A really important question to be asked. So pregnancy and children and immuno-compromised those are the groups of people where you are going to have to test it and be sure it's likely. It will be safe from past experience. But some of these vaccines are very new technologies that haven't been properly tested in all groups. In the community we do know that the Oxford style vaccine which is the chimpanzee virus has been tested. In children in with other viruses it's been around for a while that technology and it was safe and children and effective with other viruses. I can't quit you homegrown in my head at the moment but says some experience there but the Mr Vaccine from the United States or Germany those we are yet to be tasted in those groups will get the vaccine I while they say that what who get it are. People who are older people complicated medical problems, healthcare workers, and high risk environments. Those sorts of situations which will be is I, but here's the problem. If you don't immunize the poll population as quickly as possible, the virus is mutating all the time and that if you vaccinate if you immunize than mutations of the virus which are not covered by the vaccine could escape. And multiply if you don't get in there, do it quickly and that's one of the problems of Mexico or wherever is taking up the Russian vaccine some countries trying out in a couple of thousand people. You could actually get mutations of the virus surviving in countries like that and seaways antibody resistance, and we could be creating a nightmare for herself by ourselves by another country. Just little bits of immunization and we get viral resistance. Well, that's a real nice note to end on. Thanks everyone for your vaccine questions and let us know if you lock these quickfire rounds and if so what you'd like us to talk about next time

"medical officer" Discussed on Daily Coronavirus Update
"Grade School questions, and a million dollars to give away. Are you smarter than a fifth grader? Let's go. Get Ready. One of the most popular game shows of all time is coming to audio up as a podcast. Are you smarter than a fifth grader, listen on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts? It's Wednesday August twelfth. I'm Ramirez from the daily dive podcast in Los Angeles, and this is reopening America. As companies to resume operations while the pandemic continues to endure, many are hiring new executives as chief medical officers in industries, where they normally would not be Tyson Foods and Royal Caribbean cruises recently made the appointments because they need expert medical advice on how to keep employees and consumers safe Patrick Thomas reporter at the wall. Street Journal joins US for more. Thanks for joining US Patrick. Thank you for having me. As companies return back to sort of normal operations, I guess that I know a lot of big companies are still doing work from home, but there's transitioning over other places like meat packing plants that have continued to work throughout the pandemic. Is kind of changing the need to keep your workers safe and healthy is so important right now, a lot of companies are elevating a new type of executive, even more the chief medical officer. They're creating this position in places where they normally wouldn't be. So Patrick us a little bit about the chief medical officer and how they're playing a large role in a lot of companies right now. For context chief medical officer in past years is very common with hospitals, healthcare companies, pharmaceutical companies. It's not so much a term that you would find at a food processor or other non healthcare companies. It just wasn't that type of career, but lately, we've started to see company like Tyson Royal. Caribbean cruise lines, food processors, like you said that have a central workers back in the workplace in more confined quarters, Beth band, the factory floor if you remember. Remember back to March. Some of the early outbreaks where in food processing plants in rural areas, there are some outbreaks in early March and the cruise ships. So these are places where they felt like they needed a chief medical officer to bring medical advice. How can we bring back our worker safely on the factory floor? How can we keep our cruise ship employees? Say, Tyson also said that CMO is going to oversee some of their testing protocols they pointed. Pointed tests, workers at all their facilities. In the case of Caribbean, they want their CMO to work with one of the rival cruise lines on a panel to develop policies of what's it. GonNa look like to have consumers back on their ships and keep the crews workers safe. So there's a variety of different reasons why these kind of companies, WanNa, bring in a CMO and it's so important and you just nailed it. Why was you know taking the cruise? Cruise lines. As an example, they took a big hit with consumer confidence. In this last round, they've always had random problems with norovirus people getting sick. But when the pandemic started, we're hearing stories about people being trapped on cruise ships getting sick, and then workers were stranded on cruise ships months on end, and they really need to build that reputation back. So the role of the CMO in this I mean it's going to be hugely important for them. Yeah, absolutely, and like I said, they're gonNA. have their CMO on a panel with one of their rivals. Norwegian cruise line and Companies WanNa, bring in a chief medical officer, not only to bring in a medical expert, but it does give the public perception that they are taking a step. You know not suggesting that it's just a PR shut, but also it does in sometimes crisis like as we say, the story in twenty seventeen, the NFL added a chief medical officer. We've seen sports, teams, achy medical officers before for this reason whenever concerns come up at chief medical officers, kind of their voice. So they're expert they kind of. Of Give to the public to say, here's what we're doing and health policy in a way, Royal Caribbeans, kind of taken the same step in terms of having that figure to show consumers, we are doing something about it and it's not just for this for coronavirus. Specifically, you know some of the CMO's traditional roles are taking on new dimensions, mental health issues, I, think he profiled salesforce and their CMO, their how to help people's mental health situation when they're working from home and all that. So even the traditional role of it and the traditional things that they would tasks, they would be doing are kind of changing as well. That was one of the more interesting things I thought about. This was that a company like salesforce, and maybe some more like Silicon Valley type companies that make a variety of tech product. salesforce makes a bunch of different types of software products and they use the chief medical officer to develop certain kind of products. Know CMO is a medical expert who can bring expertise on dealing with regulations, the variety of legal hoops to jump through when you're. You're making something that organizers patient data you need to have someone developing that that knows what's legal and what doctors one, what they wanna see what's helpful to them, kind of their adviser on certain projects. Right. And in this case now that we're going to pandemic their CMO IS GONNA, she described it as doing double pack, right? She's got two roles. Now, it's not only the traditional role, but now you're also counseling your company in terms of. The experts that can bring in how can we bring people back workplace safely? Are there products that we've been developing that we can use to help our own employees or working from home? That sort of thing? Yeah. It's going to be interesting to see as things continue to develop and we work through the health crisis right now. If there's an outbreak in another meat processing plant Tyson, let's say for example, we're going to be hearing from the CMO on things that they did and didn't do and how the readjusting to it. So these are the people that you're going to be hearing from as well as we continue to go through. So just a more important role for more than ever right now, Patrick Thomas. Reporter for the wall.

Evolving Care and Closing the Access Gap to Addiction Treatment
"I'm your host William Moyers today I'm proud to introduce our guest president and CEO mark. MIC welcome mark thank you. You well I'm glad to be glad you're here too hard to believe. You've been the presidency now for twelve years. It's amazing time flies when you're having a good time. And of course we look back on retrospective, but we want to look forward here in the future of of addiction treatment and here we are at the Betty Ford Center in the winter of two, thousand and twenty. And this podcast, hopefully we'll have a nice long shelf life, so we'll have to look out even further than just the next couple of weeks. But what do you see in the years ahead? When when it relates to what we at Hazelton? Betty, Ford, we'll be delivering in terms of treatment. Well it. It's a great question There will be I. think tremendous changes coming in the field. In the clinical model in the way we deliver care and I think we're GONNA. See A lot of change has to do with virtual care and telehealth now virtual care are telehealth spin around for many many years, and it's been delivered in a lot of different settings. What hasn't happened, though is the treatment world the treatment of substance use disorders hasn't. Hasn't really grabbed onto. It the way it's going to happen. In the future the the population that's coming up the young, the young men and women who will be moving into work will be suffering from substance use disorders in the future have a very different way of approaching the world than when I do. They use their phones they. They user devices. They are comfortable on them, and so how we meet them meter patients where they're at in the future part of that has to be that we are very good at and understand what parts of the care that we deliver can be delivered virtually what parts of the care that we deliver can be delivered over a telephone How can our? Our patients access content access lectures on demand. That's going to be really critically important going forward so that so that's one thing that's going to happen the second thing that's going to happen. Is that I really do believe we're in a stage now where we're gonNA, have a real shaking out of the field I think that because of the. Requirements to invest in Electronics Isla chronic health record to invest in virtual care to upgrade your facilities to participate in health insurance. A lot of the treatments centers out. There won't be able to do that. They don't have the capital to do it. They don't have the the expertise to be able to move into the insurance world and so I. Think we're going to see A. A lot of centers that are going to close or merge with that'll do for us is GonNa to put even a heavier demand for our services. We are going to see as we're seeing today. a continued escalation of people coming to us for Karen, service, so this organization going to need to invest in of all things, bricks and mortar. There's no question about it. and And we've got a plan here. For the Betty Ford Center we've got plants throughout the Organization for the next five years, but looking well into the future people attending treatment in person is not going away. It's the preferred modality you know. Addiction is a disease of isolation, so people need whenever possible the Common Person and so there'll be a high demand on our on our sites to be able to provide more and more care, no question about it. One of the things that's happened in the evolution of the way we deliver cares. There has been a surge under your leadership in outpatient. Can you talk more about the role? That outpatient will play in the future? Sure our our chief medical officer Dr Marvin. Sepla told me when I first. First started here that ninety percent of the people who get care for a substance use disorder do it on an outpatient basis. And at that time we really had no outpatient services. So I'm pleased to say. Today's sitting here this morning. About of four patients three of them are getting services on an outpatient basis in the organization in one out of four are getting on A. A residential basis, and that's the way that it should be so outpatient is critically important for access for people to be able to Get Care in their neighborhoods where they live for an affordable price, and that's what outpatient patient allows us to do.

It's coaches. It's the people working in facilities whether it be food service, or are otherwise what sort of directives or measures are being taken around that other sort of that distinct group, but a different group who aren't going to be on the field competing. Yeah No, it's a great question and I think certainly we're trying to identify and make sure that we do identify any any individual that would be considered high risk individuals that the the CDC considered high risk. And so he would certainly handle them differently if they were to test positive end or if they were to be a close contact with somebody that that tests positive. And you know I, think certainly working with with Disney in the the the Swan, the dolphin resorts and Dave kind of like stepped up their their game enhanced. They're cleaning of all their of all their venues Their staff is going to be going through some self monitoring and sue questionnaires as well just to make sure that they are also staying home. If they're sick and minimizing the contact, there we are trying to put in place some other types of hygiene methods like limiting the number of people in the gyms, limiting the number of people in in elevators pools. The cleaning is going to be an you know. Really, important and then also you know trying to do things simple things like leaving the doors open were. A jar so that people don't have to use the DOORKNOB. and. All all individuals that are that will be down. There will be in single rooms So you know there's that that will peace?

"You know in Tennessee. I guess the one thing we can say that the spore is a pretty used to a day before tournament start injury withdrawals or retirement through illness or things like that so at least it's something that tennis is accustomed to in a way in. We'll have those hopefully have those lucky losers lined up but who knows if how are go down the line in terms of Quarantining lucky losers are testing. All healers. Yeah that'd be no and it's If I'm in the locker room in the even in the players lounge and I hear a player pulled out because she had a sore hamstring. It's one thing if I find out. A colleague pulled out because of a positive cova test. It's affects me in a different way but no I mean I. I think there's this is sort of a there's A. There's a think piece if not a book to be written here but I think the role of sports in this whole pandemic is is really interesting to me and we usually think of sports as having like duck handling said I mean it. Has this real ability to bind us. It's this source diversion. It's it's unification there's life lessons I mean all of these kind of mushy ideas about why we love sports in all of those in a Lotta ways are under attack. I mean somebody saying somebody said. There's there's a pandemic ripping through the world. Hey here's what we're GONNA do. We're going to get seven hundred thousand fans in a confined area. We're going to have athletes come in from all over the world and share one locker room you could. You could scarcely script less conducive scenario than the Olympics the US Open or the Super Bowl. His sports are not only not being able to be played. They are almost singularly ill suited for this pandemic. So I I think we're all sort of rethinking how we're GONNA stage sports but also what sports mean in the social fabric and how we can keep that when obviously like you say Jamie I mean the the idea of seven hundred thousand people going to one site that just so happens to be ground zero for this whole global pandemic in Queens New York but how hundreds of thousands of fans going to one site to watch. Athletes who've flown in from all over. The world are now sharing a locker room. How are we going to be? I mean that's that's clearly going to be precluded for years. But how are we going to be able to enjoy sports? And how are we going to be able to alter sports and reassess sports and sort of keep the goodness while recognizing that? There's a lot about sports that are really inconsistent with the best practices in the age of cove in terms of coming back. I mean the you have C. announced that they would hold this fight I guess a pretty long time ago they did give the players the opportunity to obviously train and get ready And they knew that they were on deck for this past weekend. How long do you think the US Open will give players to notify? How soon are we going to see a decision? I mean there's there's an early June gate that's been circulated of look. We're GONNA make the call by then. I mean I do think. A lot of these players I don't think players are sitting at home Guzzling beer in on twitch. I mean I just saw video nick. Cheerios without practicing and Canberra Nick curious practicing looking reasonably fit. You can be sure that You know dominant team and it's very as well If anything you have seen one of the harder sports where you've got to actually got in the you really have to be in literally in fighting shape. I think a turn the switch today. I mean right now at noon. We're GonNa have a tournament tomorrow. I think the majority of players would would be ready at least is IT I. I think we're and one thing we. I was glad Dr Hoenlein address us. I think one area. That's been a little short changed as just the mental health component to all of this and you're an elite athlete and you're competing is what you do. I mean that is a form of self assessment. It's a form of self identity all of a sudden. You're no longer competing. I mean niddle has been very outspoken about this essentially in so many words saying I'm just not and this isn't a doll of people saying I'm not necessarily in the state of mind to be competing but from a physical standpoint. These plan and I thought you know the level of play that exhibition. I referenced in Florida the four-man Exhibition with Appel Cop. Paul and I to me was indistinguishable from the level of play at this review. Told me this was the first round of Australia would have said Yeah. That's about right so I think the one thing I I think players muscle memory. I think the players will come back without too much of a perceptible difference but emotionally whether or not all these players are ready to resume like you say spent two weeks in quarantine before major is not a drill. Any of them have done before. That's a really interesting point about about a dollar. You know it gets me thinking in previous tournaments in previous grand slams. Think a lot of what we always talk about is that that one it factor that one thing that is going to separate you know player from player be especially in the finals in a lot of times especially when we talk about the big three is is their mentality is how they approach the game and it's that that mindset that somehow you just see them all the sudden turn it on or just take it to another level that you you didn't think was there That's a really interesting perspective. You know is someone like dollar federal in mind said to compete in that way you know. I think it's one thing to say. Yeah we can. Have you know this this match tournament? That looks like a the first Australia. But once he gets to the later rounds. How how strong is that competition going to be going to be good tennis? Is that or do? Do we care And how much does that affect the the winner of that year? You know to say well. You are people going to say well. You didn't compete against the best or you didn't compete against you know everyone that could have been there because maybe some people couldn't or decided not to not to come so. I was talking to one player who said I was talking to a player The days all run together by the way but it must have been last week. Who Essentially said they. They wanted to just to get back in the swing of competition and that people don't realize that that's a muscle to and it wasn't about whether I can make a few thousand bucks playing in some exhibition. It's about sort of getting back in the swing of competing and testing myself and being in a situation where it's it's four thirty all and it's something that You know we. We don't necessarily have statistics for it. It's something that doesn't isn't necessarily manifest when we watch tennis on TV but getting in this competition mindset is really part of the job in players haven't had a chance to do that since February and if playing backyard tournament there was event Tracy Austin mentioned in southern California. Sam Query is going to be on by believes Taylor. Fritz or son for some Brandon Savita. I'm blogging but it's you know a six man competition backyard but you're still going to be playing world-class practitioners you're still going to be facing Sam. Queries serve at four all and for a tennis player. There's there's something to be said for that so strange times all around but I think this is You know honestly Jamie this. This to me is the equivalent of the restaurant. That's now doing you know. We're we're all improvising and it would be great if that restaurant were doing full business and had table service and we were all having leisurely meals. But it's better than nothing so that's I sort of see tennis and very much. The same place better than nothing. Open House that slogan all right that will usually usually we are podcast.

"Tennis podcast. Hope everyone is new. And Okay wherever you are yesterday Dr. Brian. Hey Line he is the chief medical officer for the Ncaa College Sports for our international audience. He's also the chief medical officer for the US Open and the USDA and has been since the early nineties. He is also a former college tennis player. So today's discussion is a lot about what it will take for sports to come back what we make of this closed-door scenario and then we talk specifically tennis. What are the unique challenges tennis bases and whether the twenty twenty? Us Open can happen. If so under what circumstances so Thought after a lot of speculation from lay people who was time we consulted someone who had real expertise so here does a great job is Dr Brian Halen. I I've seen you quoted a number of times and I feel like everyone has become an instant expert on sports science and And Virology these days. But I figured we've talked to a real expert and let's let's just start. Generally I mean what? What are you seeing out there? And what's going to be the biggest challenge for sports to restart I think the Two biggest challenges are really having surveillance. That's firmly in place and and really really good testing. So you can imagine and you know resocialised and you can't imagine re socializing in sport if you don't have both of those you know once we start opening up where no longer saying. We're just trying to flatten the curb or or were trying to really make certain. Our healthcare systems are not overwhelmed him so New York City which is a great example of that. The healthcare system were ninety percent of the hospital were devoted to taking care of patients who had colds and were in respiratory failure. We're now opening up. Doing procedures elective procedures. Insult going forward. If this is GonNa work you have to be able to test large segments of society and especially in sport and you have to do contact tracing and do what's right when there's a positive so it really does fundamentally rest on those two principles and you're just to be clear. You're talking about testing testing. And not just the temperature checks that's correct. And and it's two types of testing the indoor being you know even good advances and even in the last week so The rapid diagnostic testing shifting to what we may call point of care testing where you can even have on your your own kit in. And that's two of. That's going to be evolving in two ways. One is on looking for the virus particles so the PC artas to to see if you really are wait on infectious and even the serology testing if there wolves out properly and we really get good out. There's two ways to look at serology. One is to see if you have immunity but also when you first are infected with a virus your immune system kicks in right away. What's it's called? Gm and that may even evolve as as a screening tool for for seeing someone has accused effect infection so I think bolts are going to really advance in the next month and then were GonNa be strategies for how to work with teams without and you think testing is available and sufficient. I mean I don't know if you saw the UFC card that they held Saturday night and Florida. They went through. I think was twelve hundred tests for one. Sporting event and people eyebrows raised over that you think we have enough test to pull the saw. I think we're going to get there so so we had a a meeting. We meaning the chief medical officers of sport on so I was representing amateurs or Z. A. And then you had the chief medical officers of the NFL NBA Major League Baseball. H Own. We're all meeting with Dr Birch's office in the White House and we emphasize we said. We can't do this if we don't have adequate tests so you know the White House response is the usual response. Were were increasing them substantially but. I think what's happening in ups obscene. This happened as a least at university levels. They're either working with a hospital or university lab so they can take care of their whole campus but the private companies have have really been rubbing up as well and you know that's challenging and on on the one hand you WanNa make certain Dutch. You aren't testing for one segment of society while the rest of the state is still prioritizing test and they only have enough so but I I think the way the private companies and and and even with you know I just saw another. Fda approval reverse serology. Tusk come in our yesterday. So it is starting to substantially increase where. I think we're going to be moving into a different APP testing on we. We keep talking about the possibility of sports returning but I wonder how granular you get to what extent UC distinctions between sports and the benchmark for football is GONNA be much different than the benchmark for golf no absolutely so So so you know aside from the event Florida this past weekend so the PGA tour will be hosting event and in Texas the first week of June and on and they happen. You know a really cool without getting into too much detail but you know you. Essentially we have to create what's called an inner bubble and then you have outer bubbles out in the inner bubble was who would be really going to be around the athletes. So it's the athletes the core of athletics. Sam personnel the coaches. And you have to make sure that they're sort of walled off and really well-protected. I mean in these first early events like that you know when we look at the NCAA and the false or so ranges from cross country to And Soccer and field hockey and then of course. There's there is football insults. It's a little easier to imagine pulling off cross country than than it is onto to pull off off on but even across country meet the logistics of it are not straightforward and on. You know when you're starting off across country event. You're pretty close to a lot of people at the end. You're pretty close when you're trying to pay someone you know it's a The elbows are flying. And so you have to make sure that done might too and so we are actually getting a very granular levels. Were at the NCAA. We we have these committees that are our staff and members of committees working in conjunction with other. And we're developing basically all of the what if scenarios that we can think of and the other thing is we're building off of the core principles of resocialization document that we put together and were beginning very granular in terms of general guidance. For what needs to happen in a lock of what needs to happen in in the gym. What needs to happen. You know for showers and and you know the whole old idea of just kinda show up in the training room was actually sort of a choice for athletes to hang out. I mean it's going to be by appointment so it's really going to be staggered and I think it'll be easy in the first couple of phases but the tricky part is going to be when you start having contact what what does need. I'm thinking about tennis. What were you've got you know? A hundred and twenty eight singles draw from fifty countries. What what does need to happen in the locker room was hope you think of China's to be thinking of something like the US opened on you. Would you help to really make certain that when people are in the Locker Room? You have a staged presence in other words. You can't just come into the locker room when you want so it really all has to be orchestrated and hold out. You know if you if you've ever been in the US Open Locker Room. You know their their lockers right next to each other. Right above each other and The the training tables are are one after the other. The athletic trainer is going from one person to the next you know doing infectious disease control. But that would be much different Would you would you would have to control the timing. The inflow the outflow and and the standardisation procedures have to be exceptional. What else are you looking at sport to sport? It seems like indoor outdoor would be an obvious distinction and contacts sport. Even yeah we just had you have see so you don't get much more contact than that. But what else are you looking for when you're determining sport by sport so you're thinking about safe football If you're going to be rolling that out. So there's there's going to be protocols I think one protocol for the inner circle and you have to find the inner circle at the level to you know. They're they're really a code of honor and you can take the compliance even beyond that And where everyone's GonNa have sort of a symptom checklist if you will and a temperature and if you have anything. That's positive on that checklist where you have a temperature. You just don't show up so that's a general screen. It's certainly not foolproof especially in college age students. You know as we advance in any of the sports the ball works or even basketball for their baptist in the summer is that can define when people you want to test them and they should all be tested and that those are the protocols that even schools are working abroad or students and then you WANNA have a protocol regular testing that still being worked out in the modeling. How often do you need to test so as a minimum? When we're looking at all of the sports as you're going from phase one to phase two you task before you move to phase two and then the question is when you have a positive test. What do you do? And that has to be worked out with the local on health officials as well and this is where they have to have the capacity contact tracing and I'm sure are GONNA be imaginable. Apps in the next couple of months that are going to help without to on but then the question is do quarantine everyone for two weeks. It was in close contact. Or is there another paradigm where you can do testing on days? One three and five and you just a five day quarantine. Those are the models that are still being worked out didn't football. Let's take the the the you know the most contact collision sport in the fall. There is on you. Imagine a protocol of something like at least once weekly testing but then before a game the only player is a play in the game and the only people who are really in close contact test negative. So it's ends up being resource dependent as a lot of test. Yeah and You know you can. You can do the math and you end up. You know did it. Depends on how how much you could easily be a thousand dollars a player when you when you when you do. The math could be more now about the cost of an old LEICA. Salman and I don't think we need to have four or five helmets per player on but but it it's a cost in and the question is who who who is going to take care of that cost because it's you know you can think about a society where you believe sports important schools important will out to that sort of a federal expensive about doesn't happen in our country and I don't think the states have the money for that but you know a lot of schools don't either and the NCAA as you know. Took a a a a a big hit budget too so on? It's it's problematic at heart. I mean when you make these assessments. How do you divorce the finances or or do you divorced to finance of the minute? You know you're right. College sports are GONNA look radically different. If there's football this fall or not the USDA's budget is gonNA look radically different if there's a US Open or not. How do you sort of consider the finances? It's it's a big part of it so you have to. I make the court a Susan and say well. What's the one thing that can't be sacrificed? And they'll tell them safety on. And then you and then you build out from there you know you've seen you know even the PAC twelve their announcement that they may just be playing conference only games this year and I think a lot of schools are looking very closely at travel. We haven't come out with travel guidelines yet. I think it's still too early because you know you look at what's happening around the world so I mean I got kind of a firsthand. Look at this so Mike. My Wife's father Died suddenly last week so she flew to France and it was Really Eerie to be Kennedy Airport. I wasn't allowed him but it was like a ghost town but when she came back when she arrived on Sunday night they weren't allowed off the jeopardize unless they had a screening which included temperature chuck and for those screen. You know positive. They were directed to a different part of the airport and You know you look at Emirates airline. They actually do a A point of care tests before you're allowed to fly so you think of that and then you think about an event like us open where you have a you know a lot of international players you know. Do we work with one airline that we know they're going to be actually doing the screening? It's it's valid screen and and on the people on that flight of just tested negative. So you know that's the thing we're testing you know. At the moment that you're negative you could be positive the next day but So I think it's going through scenarios like that but certainly in this country we're not at that level of sophistication for travel and I think a lot of schools are going to be looking more local travel. What we're talking about athletes. What do you think of this this no fan scenario that.

"This is an ABC podcast. Hello this is corona cost a podcast all about the corona virus. I'm health reported taken Tyler opposition journalists to Norman Swan. It's Wednesday the twenty second of April so as promised we have with us today. Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly. We've been asking questions that you want us to put to him. Am I gonNA try to get through as many as we can today? Thanks for joining us. Poll Oh you're welcome. Sorry tiny's asking about mosques. He's wondering why the federal government is still not recommending mosques for everyone who goes out in public and also he's asking why the federal government isn't supporting the states actions on school clashes firstly unmasks We look at the evidence As well and and as quickly as we can emerge in relation to masks and people would know nothing. Norman's mentioned it on this program in recent days in the US The Centers for Disease Control have recommended mask us in public certainly in the US situation and their epidemiology with way more cases in the general community perhaps make sense but for us firstly very few cases secondly masks not great protection. If you don't know how to wear them masks that are not made in the prescribe way will not be effective in Avenue in relation to stopping the spread of the virus or indeed protecting. How the so so. That's the reason we we haven't recommended masks at the moment in previous times. There was a shortage. Of course we wanting master remain for our frontline. Health Workers That's been relieved in in recent times with an increase in supply. So that's That's no longer a raisin so just on master moment. I mean people recognize that it this is about. Acm dramatic spreads. If you've got and you don't know what you might reduce the spread. How how bad with the epidemic to get an Australia for the small benefit to be worth it. You think in masks if you had the resources if there were enough masks around a lot worse than what it is now Norman I think would be the short answer and as as an epidemiologist of course I would always say depends but certainly if there was widespread community transmission could at that point be reviewed sped at the moment. We don't believe it's the right way. And what about twenty second question one on school closures in the State sections here? Yeah so the school closures is an interesting one Certainly the Strang Health Protection Committee has been very clear from the beginning In our advice to the national cabinet but the national cabinet is made up of nine. Different states in different states have to make their own decisions to the elected governments. And they're the ones that run the school system so So some have gone further than others. So the N. T. For example. They haven't closed schools in South Australia. In other places they've directly and specifically asked kids to stay at home in New South Wales Somewhere in between the suggesting that children should start coming back one day a week. I think there's a couple of issues here firstly in our current situation. Not Not a lot of Transmission in society and so that would be the same in schools. We know that transmission amongst children is not strong and children themselves. Do not get severe illness. We know that pretty strongly now including in Australia indictor Australian investigations of of our brakes. There is the question of course in a very valid question about teachers and their safety and all of the brakes. We've looked at has tended to start with a teacher or appearance and spread amongst teachers so the staffroom is actually the most dangerous place rather than the schoolroom room or the school yard in terms of of teachers. So Carrie asks on schools. Why are we reopening schools when social distance is so important and supposed to add onto? Kelly's question I'd ask as well. How'd you socially distance when you've got fourteen year olds in the playground very difficult and I understand that my my my sister effective of my sisters a teachers one of them currently working as the school's Comeback in New South Wales? So of course these things are challenging. And I think the the point is you can do as best you can. In terms of social distancing is certainly a lot you can do about hygiene around the school. Kids go to school. But they're not allowed to play on public playgrounds. Yeah well that's that's a challenge. Some of these things. I can certainly say how it's it's difficult to maintain those two conflicting pieces of advice. I'd I'd say this so at least in schools we do know who's on the school playground and and there is some ability within the school environment to increase those hygiene messages and cleaning for example public playgrounds a bit less of a controlled environment. More open to others coming in so I think that's part of it but look I think as as we go forward it's been we've been so successful in dampening down the curve flattening the curve and so few cases that in the next month. We'll be saying the relaxation of many of those things that have been introduced. So we've got some questions on strategy and a radical roll up the three questions and just tell you what they are because the overlap Margaret ask Kuby covered nineteen from our shores. And she says if so. Why aren't we apparently not doing so? Henry asks wise the federal government not moving towards a covered nineteen limitation strategy. Luciana asks why would we even consider stopping the current measures diminishing the spread of the virus before complete eradication so three questions on the theme yes so the theme of strategy so that was made much more explicit last week by the Prime Minister and the chief medical officer Brennan Murphy was just outlines what we have indeed been doing all along but making it more explicit and that's about a suppression strategy. So that's in between the let it rip or herd immunity strategy that some countries are going along. Which if you do that you end up with a lot of lot of infections. And some of those will be severe about twenty percent of them And people die and so that is not a strategy. That we're looking for brought at the other end is of course. Lock everything down and look for ratification. that's New Zealand Strategy Now. New Zealand quite interestingly has announced they're starting to pull back from that That lockdown phase. And they'll be much closer to where we are in terms of handling this forest more Into the future we've ended up in the same place. Interestingly and we've had more cases than New Zealand but not a lot more in recent the recent weak very few cases and virtually non yesterday outside of Tasmania and New South while so So I think we're getting to a similar place of through that suppression strategy. I think is it possible to actually eradicate this forest altogether from Australia? It might be certainly eliminating it as a public. Health problem. Appears to be where we're heading at the moment with `sufficient strategy. So just how long would you wait before? You're fairly sure. In other words you talk starting at Tenneco the reproductive cycles of the vars. So let's say new. South Wales is the challenge here because they've had more cases than any other state. They are working hard at doing. A Lotta tasting so. This is not a criticism New South Wales but it is the challenge. But let's assume we get down to zero in all states. How many days in a row before you think? We're actually in a pretty good shape here and we can let the break off albeit slowly but we can let the break off this. Call a Chris Crystal Ball Question Norman. And that's always a difficult one but no not a biological question. Isn't it because you reproductive cycles of the virus and once she washed through for a couple of weeks surely you can be pretty sure? Yeah you would be short but it depends on a house it and now you the people are coming to get the testing the so called passive surveillance strategy which is what we've had at the moment. And most countries that have been far worse affected than us in in Europe and North America and and so many other countries. Now that passive surveillance depends on people. Coming recognizing that they're sick with the virus and getting this right test and that that is proving positive and flowing on their to public health but our challenge now is okay. That's seems to be drying up but will there may be other people in the communities to slowly brewing small outbreaks. We've seen that exactly playing out in North Western. Tasmania where Tasmania pull up the drawbridge and they went on that strategy of isolation but then several weeks later at some point there was someone that had the virus which led to other people having the virus and now they have eighty so can can change rather quickly and brings us to our border controls to at the moment the borders are essentially shadow there trillions continuing to come home we will continue to get a trickle of cases only needs a few of those two to get out into the community so so. I think declaring this over is going to be a very difficult thing to do but I think the other side is is balancing up the the other effects of locking down we've done and digressing business social interactions and all of the other things made for Iran wellbeing as well as that of the economy. So I'm going to take the privilege of being coarseness my own question here Paul. Kelly given that it's possible that as you say you get a few cases trickling through and as a Cuban saying there was one point of the end of November. There was just one person in the whole wide world with what would come to be known as covered nineteen and look where we are now with well over two million cases and over one hundred thousand deaths and we could get a second wave so this question is relevant because we could come to a second wave necessarily which might be worse than the first looking back and it's only four and a half months. What if anything would you do differently? If you again and I'm not talking about the second wave I'm talking about. Let's go back in time. And what would you do differently? I remember very clearly the first time I heard about this forest so there was It's as you say. Probably sometime in November. There was something happening in Hubei Province. We weren't absolutely clear about that. In fact there was no sort of external reports about that until the first of January was actually the time when we were first notified through World Health Organization contexts Aww forty-three cases of an unusual happening in Wuhan. We look very closely at that and and and decided that this was something we should keep a close eye on so we immediately had had a meeting about that To decide what we should do. And we put some information out to the states and territories and through them A carnival a alert. Not Alarmed message to our emergency department. So we were onto this very quickly by mid January. We decided that things hadn't really changed much in China at least officially and then all hell broke loose as we know from From reports that came out of Wuhan and then rapidly other parts of China. Just interrupt so you give yourself ten ten here or I think if we'd known a bit more more quickly about what was happening in China than That might have might have changed Something's but by by on the twenty first of January. We'd already relies that. This actually had some was a disease pandemic potential and we moved to a higher Higher level at that point so the the question is whether whether we could or should have done things more quickly I think after that on the first February we got modeling that demonstrated that China was possibly. The rest of John was was heading towards being the Siamese Wuhan And on that same day was when we put in the restrictions about people coming from China or other than Australian Citizens and residents so and things escalated quickly like that and through much in particular Things moved very rapidly. Could we have gone a bit more quickly? Perhaps but in the end of the day you were in such a good situation now It's hard to see where we could have could have done other things but you know we learn from these things. These these are the best exercises we can do to test our preparedness and our reaction to these things and so we will be more prepared for a second wife if it comes because we've gone through a first wife Freshman Kelly.

Why is what's in the future that way yeah so they changed a lot of rules <hes> the year if if you follow across it and so like this year for the games they only had fourteen teens go whereas normally they were probably about fifty so the chances of getting to the games. It's just getting smaller and smaller i am. I'm twenty nine right now and i'll always do like some form of cross fit but if i move out to hawaii okay then i probably won't be with as competitive gyms as <hes>. I've gotten the chance to be back atmosphere their mea it is i know and i might you know might try looking in. I might do more divy recreational diving out there trying learn how to surf in.

It's called wada palooza next year. It's just like a big party. If that makes any sense so i'll still like as still compete <hes> when i can but <hes> yeah probably going into the game is in as much of a goal as it used to be. I was a team out of hawaii. Eastern regionals are the games they did yeah across it eight. Oh wait a they follow. Invicta sits programming there last time they sent sent team was when it was a six person team <hes> and i have dropped in there so i mean potentially it's it's more the challenge challenge of traveling to compete as much to get like a whole like for people to travel to iceland or south africa africa like chase the sanctional around <hes>. That's yeah it gets expensive and so i'll probably do local competitions in hawaii but <hes> y'all definitely keep an eye on cross the l. a.

The army is kind of leaned towards <hes> during around more weight for other fitness tests. Do you think the navy is gonna follow <hes>. I hope they do by <hes>. I yet i've seen the armenians means new is at their c._f. T yeah <hes> with the the heck's bar <hes> judd left and and <hes> yeah it does look way more functional and <hes>. I think it is more appropriate like per job to have <hes> <hes> specific movements that you should be able to do. I'm hoping the navy dies but <hes> it's hard to say because i feel i feel like they usually follow suit with what the army dies on but i'm like because everybody thinks that we don't lead the way a thank you so much for saying so you know what's interesting about that is that it is supposed to be tailored more to the things that <hes> soldier is going to backdoor see in a combat environment. You know you are going to have to climb over a wall or lifting body or drag something or you know whatever those types of situations are are in so this is supposed to mir those situations and get you better prepared rather than just pushups situps two mile run and so i think if the navy adapt apted something it doesn't necessarily have to follow exactly to the t- what the army has done but i think it does benefit to your point. All military branch is trying to identify in our service. What is the need and what are people going through. What are they challenged by and everything from a physical.

Imos are just because has there the biggest group compared to the navy divers and spec ops <hes> they have you imos at buds medical who take care of the buds candidates who are are going through hell week so it's any physician that has passed internship. <hes> has their own medical license and then also completed died school themselves so they they've really kept it a tradition to make it so that we have to go to dive school so we really understand the challenges of being a diver <hes> and then we take a course on hyperbaric medicine as well to learn how to treat free diving injuries basically the bends and a whole variety of <hes> like overpressurization or pulmonary over inflation syndrome syndrome <hes> types of injuries that you can see with more the intense diving in the navy so <hes> the you know the divers that are doing the welding and the deep sea divers and stuff. Did you have to go to that segment. As well or is it just the breeders and those types of things or is it all <hes> yeah we do scuba and then we also do surface supply so that's with the mark fives and the umbilical coming off of his ship. We didn't do any welding which i'm honestly glad i didn't do that. I don't think i'd be good at that <hes> but we still go through pool week which every like to check one check class goes through but then we like we all have those same initial three or four weeks and then because at dive school wall you'll have like yoga classes in the c._b.'s and p._j.'s there so there's all these like very specific groups and then we kind of all split off and you <music> this other training that down in where'd you go to panama city or city. Okay i thought so and then once you get into that then i know at one point. You were describing some of your career path there. I mean you were evaluating buds candidates and individuals schedules that are going within the soft community. You've done some of those things that you mentioned <hes> but you know on a daily basis kenneth tickets through the life of what you do now is a underwater water medical officer. I mean is it still more of just the evaluations for people who are looking at coming in the community or is it. Is it more of really dealing with people with a hyperbaric burke chamber and those types of things yeah so my job <hes>. I actually got pretty lucky because i thought it was going to be very administrative initially but it turns out. I got a pretty good mix. I'm so i'm at the peace at the pressurized submarine escape trainer in groton connecticut <hes> which is the biggest submarine base and so all of the <hes> best students which is an acronym for basic enlisted submarine in school they come through the trainer and we're it's a high risk trainer where reteaching the students how to escape a submarine in a pressurized pressurized suit in case. There's ever a chance there is a disabled submarine. How far is that suit good for because when i think about a submarine that's not doing well that me just a couple of miles down be enough. <hes> you know a diver myself. I get to thinking <hes> that's not good. You know there's there's there's nothing good from that especially. When you're talking the bins yeah yeah. It's <hes> it's supposed to be for. I'm not sure the exact number but <hes> i mean dr tank is thirty-seven feats. That's what we train at but <hes> i don't want to give specific numbers how many hundreds of feet but they they would be looking looking at hundreds escaping from hundreds of feet below surface. Oh yeah yeah it's a very the specific scenario if it were to happen but the navy.

"Or you. M._o.'s or dive school they were the ones who worked out the most the basic <hes> and they were the ones <hes> it was the smallest community out of g._m._o.'s <hes>. It was the most challenging so <hes> i i they had that seed planted early on <hes> that i wanted to do that after internship to have any females are in that community right now are physicians yeah good question <hes> i i would estimate <hes> like from lieutenant to probably captain may be twenty to thirty in my class alone. We had six at dive school and that was the highest number of females they've ever had in a dive school class in history of dive school and that was in two thousand seventeen so <hes> their p._e._o. <unk> get interviewed for a little article so but that <hes> <hes> that's what volumes to me and just looking around and i was like okay. The six of us like i guess is the really big number for now. How large was the class so six <unk> out of how many i think we had thirteen so we are half the class. Oh in all six ended up passing and everything is well yeah yeah. Yes just great yeah so our class. <hes> we are all doctors all so we're called you mocks or you mo- candidates <hes> so most device came straight from insurance ship but there were a couple of people who are already board certified <hes> <hes> we had one pediatrician one e._r. Doc doc the two off my head so <hes> but they're a bit older they're in their mid twenties and they're they're going to dive school school <hes> but i know right now in terms of just navy diving. There's only seven there seven or eight navy female l. navy divers so <hes> in the navy diving community. It's a very small and actually the number of <hes> female you a house. I think bumps up that that number quite significantly so tell everybody who may not know what an underwater medical officer is as with this because it's not one of those career fields that i've ever really honestly heard of until nikki goes oh. She's an underwater medical offices circle. Yeah sure yeah yeah became my friend sounds like we perform surgery underwater not so we take care of the mariners divers special operators <hes> those are the three the types of units will be with <hes>. We do a lot of physical so anyone who is coming through the pipeline. <hes> there's a very rigid rigid criteria in the manual the navy manual of medicine you have to be physically qualified for so <hes> the first time you might encounter wine is in boot camp if you're trying to go to any of those special communities <hes> health wise we look through your record into physical to make sure you.

"Community retirees active duty returning from combat. What a tremendous exposure. It seems yeah yeah unfortunately <hes> so because there's so many medical coal students at uses we can't all stay at walter reed and yeah and i was one of the single ones so i was ready to pack my bags and but it was great because i went to army hospitals air force hospitals i went to tacoma madigan jacksonville florida and then i tried to get san diego as much as i could <hes> because i just love san diego and i had r._o._t._c. friends who were there so i i still did get a wide experience with all three services <hes> but walter he did. They did have a <hes> certain unlike patients who were potentially senators president obama. I i remember one time being in the library and he he was coming to the wounded warrior <hes> floor and because of that you know all the security had to come through and all of a sudden there is all the secret service like in the library region really they shut they shut the school down like we couldn't leave the base really sure and he landed on the baseball fields next to use this and then went to walter reed <hes> next door so there's still like like some cool glimpses <hes> like that where i gotta be exposed system of that interesting that you started off your career. You went down onto their recruiter. Any actually guided you to go r._o._t._c. because <hes> you know at least when i was on recruiting duty most of my experience. If you had a college education or not and you were talking about going r._o._t._c. or going there route i'd probably talk you into going into an enlistment and going sark or something of that nature. You know much much more like you know nikki here. You're did in instead of going the route of going and getting your education because i lose out possibly on enlistment. You might change your mind as you go down the path. You know what i mean you. You may not finish shot. You're not see commitment signed the contract. You know those types of yeah yeah now. I think i honestly don't remember that the interaction that much i just remember being like looking for scholarships and honestly looking back. I'm like i didn't know what i was getting myself into like most people when you went through medical school did you know what kind of doctor are you wanted to be or there's gonna be my question is well. It's funny you said yeah so definitely changed. Ally initially wanted to do e r <hes> and i liked at uses because it's a military medical school. They really emphasize like deploying deploying <hes> like we did all the t- triple c. We did <hes> some live tissue labs that were really eye opening like some of the the best training i've ever had <hes> we even our fourth year we do this thing called bushmaster where the fourth years are <hes> we act battalion surgeons and then the first year is are all they have mulaj diane and they're acting as their patients in we are are there pretty much putting on mass casualties for us on this army base in indiana i think <hes> but at at that time i i was so gung ho and like really wanted to do e. R. i really liked ultrasound <hes> oddly enough <hes> just because of how quick you could figure things out <hes> so i really was into that for a while however i ended up matching in with internal medicine instead in san diego matching with this means that the needs of the navy matching on yeah a take the needs of <hes> just the hospital in general <hes> you'll see that on the civilian side to in terms of of people really needing primary care <hes> in e r is a it's. It's just a funny thing 'cause they're all like we need e._r. Docs and and they make it extremely competitive <hes> to get those spots and i think it's only getting more competitive <hes> but yeah internal medicine in his more. You're doing ward work <hes>. I still did a couple e._r. Rotations but internal medicine is <hes> really taking care of older folks who <hes> like almost none of their organs are working. They have heart failure kidney failure failure liberty failure and they're extremely complicated <hes> so it's not as high speed but i learned a a lot just a time from my attending..

"Military the jury dot com slash display <hes> an the military. I want to know a little bit about your background background so that the audience gets a chance to understand who you are because you've got a degree in microbiology chemistry chemistry. I'm sorry and and then from there you ended up going on the position strack and becoming a doctor yeah so i mean i wanted. I knew i wanted to be a doctor are in high school. Maybe even middle school <hes> growing up and <hes> i knew that one of the best ways to do that was through the military and <hes> i was looking for scholarships in high school and i came across a recruiter's office and <hes> <hes> they really emphasize r._o._t._c. actually for me. <hes> and my dad did air force r._o._t._c. So when i came home he was like pleasantly surprised that i wanted to do <hes> navy r._o._t._c. and so i ended up actually starting at boston austin university my first year with the consortium the boston consortium which has six schools be u._b. Tufts and harvard m._i._t. <hes> missing one northeastern <hes> so i started majoring in biochemistry in actually in during r._o._t._c. time <hes> i wasn't getting a lot of feedback that i could go the medical route r._o._t._c. really emphasizes <hes> unrestricted line officers so i was honestly really worried <hes> and that i wasn't gonna be able to go to medical school. Even if i got an even if my grades were really good <hes> and i you did a lot of like searching on forums online and i knew that there were spots out there about fifteen across the nation for r._t._c. or the academy. I'm not sure if that's together. If that's separate <hes> so i knew it was possible. I just had to figure out how in luckily one of my <unk> the instructors he was considering going to medical school himself and he told me about usas the uniform services university you of health sciences at walter reed <hes> so he really told me he made a timeline for me. He's like okay. You know you've worked really liaison with your grade so far. You're majoring in biochemistry. You have one chance to take the mcat. If you don't then <hes> you know we're you're going to want you to pay off your time either as a surface warfare officer potentially a pilot potential and and that was actually the first year they were recruiting recruiting women for submarines so if you had a science or engineering background they were like you should come join. The submarine community and one of my summer cruises was actually on the u._s._s. Alaska <hes> i think with ten other female image shipman at that point already was taking the new. I want to go to medical school but <hes> i figured out that if i could get into medical school improved to eighty that i could get in then they would probably <hes>. Let me go so. I still apply probably applied to fifteen or twenty medical schools. <hes> started getting into some of them and i actually really liked usas. When i went to go visit <hes> <hes> they really just like they really liked. I already did r._o._t._c. that. Had some leadership experience in there is as the is committed to the navy. I had some idea of what the military was like. Compared to <hes> some college students who go go straight from college to the navy or the commission <hes> right after <hes> so then i got in and went straight from commissioning <hes> and went straight to medical school <hes> so i i went to boston college graduated from boston college and went to to washington d._c. In let's see those two thousand eleven and graduated in two thousand fifteen. How was it getting all that experience at walter author read. I mean because you see a number of different types of you know medical conditions and everything else whether it's from the veteran community retirees active duty returning from combat. What a tremendous exposure. It seems yeah yeah unfortunately <hes>.
"medical officer" Discussed on Outcomes Rocket
"And once you do that, you put them in positions of authority. And essentially allow them to fly. So those are some of the things we're trying to build structure around, and it's been a really interesting cast. So that's excellent in a sharing that finding that raw talent and letting the patient experience rain and win in in. So you've had a fruitful career are in you've been director. You you've been partner you've been chief medical officer through your career. What can you share with the listeners? Maybe an example of how you've done something differently to create results like improve outcomes or are increase efficiency by doing things differently. Sure. Sure. Well, I can tell you that the first example that comes to mind is a project that had to do with a subject that's near and dear to mine and probably every other internists heart in that is medication accuracy. And we've recognized that substantial of. Medication events are directly tied to transitions of care. And the accuracy of medication lists cross. Handoffs care, we recognized in the emergency room that I worked in previously bevaqua center health system. That's the original task of obtaining a medication list from a patient in the emergency room was fought with hazard, and that was largely related to the fact that it was tasked on to a very busy very capable emergency room nurse that would unfortunately be hold in many different directions at once right on four emergency room nurse who are the unsung heroes of the e r you know, who've been taught to manage bleeding that you could hear an actively drag people back from the brink of death round paper bag full of medications only looks like one thing and that is a black hole. Whole time suck. And so we recognized that there were some opportunities to make that process better. We instituted a time ocean study and also asked our pharmacy departments to calculate in ARA ROY that would be related to reducing the number of errors associated with medication reconciliation numeracy room with that we were able to justify the placement of a pharmacist clinical, pharmacists, or a pharmacy tech on T four seven to manage the task of medicine reconciliation, and we were able to see substantial improvements not only in throughput food emergency room, but a substantial reduction in almere MRs and actual medication errors as a result of the placement of that individual out. My background is internal medicine in clinical informatics. And this largely came from the fact that our medicine reconciliation tool that was being touted by our e r. Our vendor at the time really just was not up to scratch in terms of respecting the workflow of ED nurse or the admitting physician. And so it was a big wake up. Call for me to recognize that the solution. Here was not a ninety solution largely process and a staffing solution. Once we had that in place were set up for better outcomes. And so that's one of my favorite examples of recognizing that despite the fact that the tool is in place, unless you have solid process an engaged group of individuals that want to make that process successful. You will not achieve the success that nor secret that's a great story. And and just, you know, having the right team in place in in making sure that you have the right processes, not really just relying on technology or a widget to make it happen. Also, that's true way. Finding and so that's. One side of the coin. Now, let's flip it on the other side. What can you share with the listeners of of a setback? You know, I feel like sometimes we learn more from our setbacks than our successes, and you share something that's happened in your career as a leader that you've learned a lot and has really kind of just shifted the way that you provide healthcare and leadership. Yeah, I think I could comfortably share with you the.
