    Empowered Patient Coalition

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Dr. Julia Hallisy about The Empowered Patient Coalition: providing healthcare improvement and patient safety tools directly to consumers.


    http://empoweredpatientcoalition.org


    About Dr. Hallisy:


    Dr. Julia Hallisy obtained her BS in Biological Science from the University of San Francisco in 1984 and a second Bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Dental Sciences. In 1988, Dr. Hallisy received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry. Since that time, she has been a full-time practicing San Francisco dentist.

    Her second child, Katherine Eileen, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.
      
    Dr. Hallisy began to research the topic of patient safety in 1998. She has lobbied for health care reform in Washington, DC with Consumer’s Union.

    Dr. Hallisy is committed to and passionate about the subjects of patient safety, health care reform and medical error reduction. She is the founder and president of The Empowered Patient Coalition.

    Dr. Hallisy was born and raised in San Francisco, where she lives with her husband, John Hallisy, and their two sons, Daniel and Kevin. The Hallisy’s ten-year old daughter, Kate, lost her life-long battle with cancer in February 2000.

    Healing with Dr Daniels- Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?

    in Health

    Please join Dr Jennifer Daniels on February 24, 2015 at 6pm EDT for the Healing with Dr Daniels Show.


    Today's topic is: Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?


    The FDA has just approved a genetic test for consumers to use at home without a Doctor’s permission.  Patients can now freely purchase this genetic test and get the results.  Is this an advance in patient autonomy?  Or is there something more sinister?   Dr Daniels reviews the accuracy of the test, the purpose of the test and how you can sidestep this plan to ensnare you in the Standard of Care. Tune in.  Think Happens.


    What’s Hot, What’s Not. Tune as Dr Daniels gives her best picks as to the up coming trends in Healing, self - care, health care and healing. You heard it first here. Think Happens..

    Re-forming Summative Assessments: Blurring the line between learning and testing


    We will explore the following questions:



    What does a learning environment look like where learning and assessment are seamlessly integrated?
    What are the benefits and issues with this approach?
    Does this require technology or are there strategies that transcend the use of technology?
    How does this integration fit in a world of high stakes assessment?
    How can a content developer take advantage of this strategy to improve their existing and new products?


    Guests at the table:



    Elizabeth Greninger,  Managing Associate and Teacher Quality Specialist at edCount, LLC
    Stuart Kahl, Founding Principal and former CEO of Measured Progress
    Shawn Morgan, District Data Coordinator at CNY Regional Information Center

    Developmental Delays and 5p-

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Laura Castillo, Executive Director of FivePMinus.org, helping families affected by Cri du Chat (Cat Cry) Syndrome (CdCs).


    Babies born with CdCs are characterized at birth by a high-pitched cry, low birth weight, poor muscle tone, microcephaly, and potential medical complications.  "5p-" is a term used by geneticists to describe a portion of the short arm of chromosome number five that is missing in these individuals.  Some of the facial characteristics include:



    Round "moon shaped" face
    Small upturned nose at birth
    Small or low set chin (micrognathis)
    Low positioned ears
    Downward slanting of the eyes
    Wide spaced eyes
    Extra skin fold at the inner corner of one or both eyes (epicanthal fold)


    These facial features usually elongate as the child enters adulthood.  Children with CdCs are often also diagnosed with autism since many of the developmental issues are similar.


    There is a great deal of good information on this syndrome on their website.  See especially http://www.fivepminus.org/Development


    Laura shares with us the origins of the 5p- Society, the national family support group for individuals with Cri du Chat Syndrome.  They group shares expeerience and provides support to individuals and families affected by CdCs, sharing strategies for managing the syndrome and supporting their children in achieving his or her maximum potential  Children with Cri du Chat Syndrome can lead full and meaningful lives with love and support.
