    Sanofi's Mission T1D for Children with Type 1 Diabetes


    Pharmaguy interviews Becky Reeve, Head of Professional Relations, Diabetes Franchise Sanofi UK & Ireland.  We talk about Mission T1D, a new gaming app for children with type 1 diabetes in the UK. Mission T1D aims to support a serious message through gaming and play to encourage children with T1D (and their family, teachers and friends) to learn more about how to live with diabetes.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    Please tell us more about Mission T1D; specifically describe the game, how it is meant to be played, by whom and in what settings.
    Is Mission T1D an example of what is often called "gamification?" In general, what role do you see for "gamification" in pharma promotion and patient support?
    Obviously, this is an educational game. How do you incorporate education into the game. How do you ensure that kids will not abandon the game if it is "too educational" and not fun?
    This is not the first diabetes mobile app created by Sanofi Diabetes for kids in the UK. What is the value proposition for Sanofi to develop these apps?
    Are there plans to introduce this game to the U.S. market?

    Pharma to Dharma: Pharmaceuticals vs Hypnotherapy

    in Health

    Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will be continuing the discussion on "Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature" as it applies to the use of Hypnotherapy in place of, or to minimize the use of pharmaceuticals. The Wetsern model of quick fix medicine is just not working, for doctors and patients alike. Patients are finally realizing that the "quick fix" really isn't giving them the desired result or cure that they are looking for, and doctors are starting to feel that this is not the way to truly practice medicine so that healing on all levels can be invited to occur.  Learn how hypnotherapy can be a very viable and safe approach to changing our consciousness to break thinking patterns that do not serve us. 


    Adverse Drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death and pharmaceutical companies still continue to rake in billions by marketing and selling disease.  How do they do that?  By creating new diagnoses that fit into the effects of the drug that is already on the market, but that is usually close to patent expiration. This occurs particularly with psychotropics - drugs for anxiety, insomnia, depression and a variety of other psychiatric illnesses. Many people do not realize that sometimes the side effects of these drugs are exactly that which they are designed to treat.  Find out how hypnotherapy can be used alone or to augment any other modality of healing in what promises to be a very interesting discussion. 


    Pharma to Dharma 4-hour Workshops on 17th & 21st May 2015 and will be offered regularly. See more on the Kalyana Centre homepage. Find us always at www.thekalyanacentre.com or Dr. Joanna at www.drjoannacarmichael.com or 484-412-8815.

    The Solar Storm: David Gahary - Big Pharma

    in Politics

    David Gahary returns to the show to discuss Dr. John Virapen's work in exposing big pharma and his recent death. John spent nearly four decades plying his trade: helping to gain approval for infamous drugs like Prozac, sweet-talking doctors and their staff to accept his free samples of the latest concoction from his company, bribing opinion leaders and regulatory authority employees, all to get more drugs into the hands of patients, some drugs that came with deadly side effects.

    Use of Gaming Mechanics & Mobile Technology to Boost Pharma Sales Performance

    in Business

    Pharmaguy interviews Duncan Lennox is CEO and Co-founder of Qstream, a mobile sales performance platform for igniting high-performing teams, about the use of gaming and mobile technologies to increase the effectiveness of pharma sales teams.


    Questions & Topics Covered:



    Why is game mechanics playing a larger role in pharma companies’ mobile-first sales strategy? What industry factors are behind this change(s)?
    What is the difference between game mechanics and gamification? Why is that important to know?
    Studies show that reps – even those with extensive market and product training – will forget up to 79% of new information within days and months. Can you explain this “forgetting curve?”  How does game mechanics solve this challenge?
    We’ve been talking about how game mechanics-based sales performance methodologies can help sales reps – what about their managers? What kinds of data do sales managers have access to?
    Explain how game mechanics might help a typical pharma salesforce?

    Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature

    in Health

    Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will be talking about her initiative called, "Pharma to Dharma: From Pharmaceuticals Back to Nature." The Wetsern model of quick fix medicine is just not working, for doctors and patients alike.  Patients are finally realizing that the "quick fix" really isn't giving them the desired result or cure that they are looking for, and doctors are starting to feel that this is not the way to truly practice medicine so that healing on all levels can be invited to occur.  


    Adverse Drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death and pharmaceutical companies still continue to rake in billions by marketing and selling disease.  How do they do that?  By creating new diagnoses that fit into the effects of the drug that is already on the market, but that is usually close to patent expiration. This occurs particularly with psychotropics - drugs for anxiety, insomnia, depression and a variety of other psychiatric illnesses. Many people do not realize that sometimes the side effects of these drugs are exactly that which they are designed to treat.  


    How does the food industry fit in to all of this?  And it's supposedly monitored by the FDA.  But there's a reason it's called the F D A. 


    So what can we do as healthcare practitioners and consumers of medical care to combat the collusion amongst big pharma, medicine, the mainstream media, and the food industry to keep us fat, sick and dying? Find out in what promises to be a very interesting discussion.


    Pharma to Dharma 4-hour Workshops on 17th & 21st May 2015 and will be offered regularly. See more on the Kalyana Centre homepage.

    Big Data & Big Pharma: How Analytics Might Save Your Life

    in Technology

    Long before the tech sector christened almost every type of analytics as big data, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were heavily reliant on analytics to develop new, safer drugs, and to produce those drugs more efficiently. Big data plays a key role in building upon what we have learned about the human genome, in managing effective clinical trials, in long-term monitoring of drug applicability in real-world healthcare, and in managing the manufacturing process.


    Consider what the use of big data in pharma and biotech companies means to you as a consumer. It means getting the right drug to the right patient at the right time for the right condition. Now, consider what you can learn as a business person -- no matter what industry you are in -- from the analytics techniques, and the data management and data mining concepts pioneered by big pharma.


    Jim Baxter, head of the life sciences practice at Collaborative Consulting, joins All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, May 19, at 2 pm EDT, for a discussion of how pharma and biotech companies finding benefits in big data analytics.


    In this show you will learn:



    How use of big data analytics have evolved in the drug and medical device industries
    What types of benefits life sciences companies are finding through use of analytics
    What big data in pharma means to you as a possible patient
    What the future holds for use of analytics in life sciences
    What lessons big pharma can teach analytics professionals and decision makers about use of big data in their own business environments

    A natural cure for chronic diseases would shut off all that cash flow to PHARMA

    in Health

    A cure is a one-time deal. It could never amount to the consistent revenue of lifelong refills for prescription drugs. And if it's natural, Big Pharma can't patent it. That's why Big Pharma actively blocks the science and research for natural cures by renting the FDA, who are their profit protectors.


    It's why they spend $180 million annually on lobbyists to push through legislation on their behalf. And it's why they leverage their control over the FDA to guarantee no disease-curing anything gets to market. If even one slipped through, it would dry up their cash flow and put their entire industry at risk.
