Orthograndrounds.com
COA


Greetings again colleagues! Orthograndrounds.com is preparing to launch at the COA. Come and visit our booth #1013 and see what this free, exclusive web site is all about. Our purpose is to promote dialogue between members in our community, but also to broker dialogue between members of our community and our industry partners.

There are 2 sides to this social media website. On one side, a unique model ensures ethical interaction with industry at arm's length, finally recovering some of the collaborative relationship between surgeon and industry lost in this post-Christie era, yet preserving the ability for the surgeons to dictate the terms of their contact with industry. On the other side, wide-ranging forums will be available, from wide open chat rooms to fully confidential invited groups, where member surgeons can converse.


Share your experiences, find answers to your questions, and enlighten one another. It's time to realize the Power of Conversation, and the Strength of Community.

'Weekend effect' hospital risk found in Canadian study
CBC News
Some people who are admitted to hospital on the weekend for emergency or surgical care face a slightly higher risk of death than if they came to hospital during a weekday, but the effect is so small that it shouldn't detract from seeking care, Canadian doctors say. The "weekend effect" — slightly higher odds of dying for weekend hospital admissions — has been documented for some patients in hospitals in Canada, the U.S., U.K., Denmark, Australia and South Korea.

Le 'syndrome post-hôpital' serait fréquent
Psycho Média
Le terme "syndrome post-hôpital" a été introduit en 2013 par le Dr Harlan Krumholz, professeur de médecine et de santé publique à l'Université Yale. Il a décrit un syndrome apparaissant dans les jours et les semaines suivant un séjour à l'hôpital: "les systèmes physiologiques sont affaiblis, les réserves sont épuisées, et le corps ne peut éviter ou atténuer efficacement les menaces pour la santé ". Il a appelé cette période de vulnérabilité le syndrome post-hôpital."

Les infections ne font pas peur
Journal de Montréal
Malgré des efforts constants des milieux hospitaliers pour limiter le risque d'infections et de propagation de bactéries, plusieurs professionnels de la santé entrent et sortent des hôpitaux de la ville, en portant leur uniforme, a constaté Le Journal. En dépit des recommandations de l'Ordre des infirmiers et infirmières du Québec (OIIQ) de limiter le port de l'uniforme au milieu de travail, aucun règlement ne force ses membres à le faire, notamment au Centre hospitalier de l'Université Laval (CHUL), situé sur le boulevard Laurier.

The Globe and Mail
The Canadian Medical Association is calling for the creation of a national palliative-care strategy to ensure people across the country have access to a high-quality, dignified end-of-life experience. The CMA is also warning that strong safeguards must be put in place if physician-assisted dying is legalized in Canada. Recently, Quebec became the first province to allow physician-assisted death.

Scientists: Trust your doctor, not Wikipedia
BBC News
Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, contains errors in nine out of 10 of its health entries, and should be treated with caution, a study has said. Scientists in the US compared entries about conditions such as heart disease, lung cancer, depression and diabetes with peer-reviewed medical research. They said most articles in Wikipedia contained "many errors". Wikimedia UK, its British arm, said it was "crucial" that people with health concerns spoke to their GP first.

Survey: Communication breakdown between health benefit plan sponsors, providers
Canadian HR Reporter
Workplace health benefit plan sponsors are ill-equipped to develop strategic health benefit plans to respond to the future needs of employees, according to the 2014 edition of The Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey. There appears to be a few problems in the communications between health benefit plan sponsors and providers. For one, only one-third (36 per cent) of sponsors said they regularly receive an analysis of claims data from their plan providers (insurance company or advisor) to better understand the use of their plan.
