Ada To Re-evaluate Tweet Ban After Backlash

Ada To Re-evaluate Tweet Ban After Backlash

ADA to re-evaluate tweet ban after backlash The American Diabetes Association says itwill re-evaluateits policy ofbanning photos and tweets of slides during presentations, afterabacklash at its annual congress. The #2017ADA and#ADA2017hashtags showsangerat thestrong arm tactics,whichhas overshadowed many of the discussions at the conference. ADA says the measures are meant to prevent unauthorised sharing of copyrighted and (in some cases)as-yet unpublished medical data. But critics say the policy is hopelessly outdated in the age of social media, andblocks all the benefits of rapid, open sharing of data. ADA went as far as having members of staff on hand during presentations to enforce the rules, which more or less banned photos or tweets containing slides at the conference without accreditation. In ADAs defence, other major healthcare conferences have introduced similar policies and there was also a work-around available whereby members of the press could apply, several weeks in advance, for photo accreditation. But this did not stop widespread anger from those attending who advocate sharing of knowledge and ideas on social media, with many threatening to take photos of slides, or retweet them, in protest. Unprecedented tweetstorm by the medical community against information sharing policy by @AmDiabetesAssn #2017ADA Insulin Nation (@InsulinNation) June 9, 2017 In its Photography and Audiovisual Recording Policy, the ADA states: Taking photos of or recordingthe content of meeting room slides, poster presentations, and supporting materials is prohibited, considered intellectualpiracy, and unethical. Attendees who ignore this policy will be at risk of losing their badge credentials. Journalists attending are also allowed to use voice recorders to assist with reporting, Continue reading >>

American Diabetes Association Celebrates Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program Launch

American Diabetes Association Celebrates Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program Launch

American Diabetes Association Celebrates Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program Launch Evidence-based community program is now available to Medicare beneficiaries ARLINGTON, Va. (April 2, 2018) Today, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) celebrates the launch of the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP). For more than a decade, the ADA has worked tirelessly to ensure that evidence-based community prevention programs like the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) are accessible and affordable for all Americans who need them. Americas seniors (65 years of age) are at greatly increased risk for type 2 diabetes with more than one in four people over the age of 60 living with diabetes. Additionally, nearly 50 percent of seniors in Medicare have prediabetes. As reported in our recent Economic Costs of Diabetes in the U.S. in 2017 study, diagnosed diabetes costs the United States an estimated $327 billion annually, posing a significant threat to our nations health care system. By offering the MDPP to Medicare beneficiaries starting today, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have taken a momentous step in preventing diabetes, improving seniors health, and tackling growing federal health care costs. It has been estimated that this evidence-based program could save $2,650 in health care costs per enrollee for the first five quarters of the program. Over time, as the MDPP gets underway, more seniors across the country will gain access to this successful, evidence-based community intervention. The ADA is eager to see the incidence of type 2 diabetes among seniors shrink and recognizes that progress will be gradual as community-based providers learn to navigate the Medicare system. Important factors, such as the technical assistance offered by CMS, wil Continue reading >>

Tweet Revenge: Twitter Erupts As Diabetes Forum Tries To Lock Down Photo Sharing

Tweet Revenge: Twitter Erupts As Diabetes Forum Tries To Lock Down Photo Sharing

Tweet Revenge: Twitter Erupts As Diabetes Forum Tries To Lock Down Photo Sharing Attendees at the American Diabetes Associations Scientific Sessions in San Diego this year many of them young researchers who are active on social media were surprised to be greeted with the following: Thanks for joining us at #2017ADA! Photography isnt allowed during presentations wed appreciate it if youd delete this tweet. For many, the essence of gathering at conferences is the sharing of scientific information, a peek at interesting research in progress. The policy, unusual for scientific conferences, is the most public manifestation yet of the tension between the drug and medical device companies that help sponsor the ADAs flagship programs on one side and researchers and patients on the other. The New England Journal of Medicine doesnt consider this a problem. Some researchers on Twitter pointed to NEJM guidelines that state online posting of an audio or video recording of an oral presentation at a medical meeting, with selected slides from the presentation, is not considered prior publication, according to Medscape . This KHN story also ran in U.S. News & World Report . It can be republished for free ( details ). The #2017ADA hashtag on 10 million peoples feeds, and growing has been dominated by negative feedback, according to Symplur, a health care social media analytics platform. Each year, academic and industry researchers present cutting-edge and sometimes unpublished data at the ADAs Scientific Sessions. Many of these researchers accept research grants or consulting contracts from insulin makers and other pharmaceutical companies, according to disclosures made on the conferences website. The nonprofits website shows it accepted corporate sponsorships of up to $135,000 for the Continue reading >>

Connecting decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas, Bloomberg quickly and accurately delivers business and financial information, news and insight around the world. Can a Bunch of Doctors Keep an $8 Billion Secret? Not on Twitter Novo Nordisks Victoza study details leaked at medical meeting Diabetes group asked attendees to hold results in confidence In New Orleans Monday, a major medical organization attempted a feat perhaps as hard as treating the disease doctors were there to discuss. They asked a packed convention hall of attendees not to tweet the confidential, market-moving data they had flown in to see. In an unusual arrangement, the American Diabetes Association let hundreds, if not thousands, of in-person attendees see new data on Novo Nordisk A/Ss blockbuster diabetes treatment Victoza more than an hour before its official release to the public and the markets. Thats atypical for such sensitive data, which are usually shared only with journalists and researchers who have agreed to abide by strict terms, under threat of losing future access. As the Monday afternoon presentation neared, attendees posted on Twitter pictures of the packed hall, of the crowds waiting to get in, and of the projection screens touting the trials name: LEADER. After warning attendees not to share the information they were about to post, presenters in the hall put up slides showing thatBagsvaerd, Denmark-based Novos drug cut heart attacks and Continue reading >>

Adventure Roundup: David C. Schultz

Adventure Roundup: David C. Schultz

Diabetes: Diagnosed with type 1 at age 13 in 1970 Seeing It All: Knowing that blindness is a possible diabetes-related complication, David Schultz decided as a teenager to see as much of the world as he could, and as soon as possible. On one of his cross-country road trips, he met a professional photographer who inspired his career as a landscape photographer. Nature As Muse: After a brief foray into fashion photography, Schultz was called back to nature while working on a resort brochure in Utah. Within a month, he had closed his old shop in Dallas and moved to Utah, which he says has too many beautiful landmarks to pick a favorite. He can be at any one of 10 national parks, with mountains or red rock formations, in five to six hours from where he lives. Even with such spectacular options, hes strategic about where and when he travels, as heat and cold can take a toll on diabetes and insulin. Three months ago, he was in Antarcticawhich he says is surprisingly warmer than some winter trips to Yellowstone National Parkand kept his insulin and meter supplies in an interior pocket to avoid freezing. He also visits photo locations when the weather is most temperate. All Hands on Deck: When Schultz is hired to shoot photos in exotic locations, he has a team of people who can help him in diabetes emergencies. Whenever I travel, I am with other people, an expedition doctor and such, and they all know my medical history, he says. He also visits his endocrinologist for a routine checkup before a trip, just in case. But with more than 40 years of diabetes management under his belt, Schultz says he understands his body and its signs of highs and lows. His CGM helps, too. Its giving me an idea of not [only] where my glucose is right now, but which direction its heading, he says. I Continue reading >>
