1/ Thread: This morning I gave Dept of Medicine #GrandRounds @OHSUSOM @OHSUNews. In #medtwitter’s spirit of sharing & learning, here is my first #Tweetorial summarizing highlights & crediting #hcsm’s incredible contributors & source material
2/ 4 months ago EBM & cardiology expert Dr. Milton Packer published a blog post detailing how he found Twitter uninformative and emotion/opinion driven
Is this the reality of #medtwitter??
3/ #SoMe is digitally based mediums that helps us
60% of physicians say their most popular activity on #hcsm = Following what colleagues are sharing and discussing
Channel the “look at me” negative stereotype of #SoMe into “look at THIS” learning etc...
4/ @MotherinMed et al highlight the value of ACCESS and VOICE for medical students on #medtwitter in this 2015 @JournalGIM article --> but that applies to so many on #hcsm, shaking up & creating new dynamics
5/ @EMARIANOMD talks about the value of lifelong learning, search optimization, research dissemination & exposure, practice change, global interaction
6/ recently @OHSUNews @OHSUSOM interviewed several of my colleagues on how they use twitter, with common themes:
* Share
* Enage
* Learn across disciplines
* Teach
* Advocate
* Build community
* Share pride in colleagues and trainees
7/ we’ve moved past flipping through journal pages! HT @wraycharles & interview @GeriPalBlog @AlexSmithMD @EWidera
Find articles from journals you don’t subscribe to, SAVE time via “crowdsourcing”, listen to others’ voices about new publications
8/ #medtwitter has shaken up how research is disseminated/engaged, leading to ⬆️article views/downloads, ~ leading to increased future citation
But it’s not just dissemination for its own sake or sensationalism, it’s for learning and communication
9/ #medtwitter’s use of #VirtualAbstract to communicate research via visual cues has taken off, with creator @AndrewMIbrahim et al work in @AnnalsofSurgery demonstrating positive effect
9/ Nephrology dominates medicine subspecialty #medtwitter presence w folks like @kidney_boy & @nephro_sparks, learning innovations like @RenalFellowNtwk #NephJC & #NephMadness (PS—I’m promised Dr. Sparks I would quote this tweet!)
10/ so back to Dr. Packer. @Doctor_V’s @33charts rebuttal was spot on, highlighting #medtwitter’s ability to help curate reputable content & provide a collaborative exchange platform.
11/ @WrayCharles @ADAuerbachMD @Futuredoc @journalhospmed just published their work on #JHMchat impact and reach
12/ can #medtwitter fact-check itself? Take this example of a MKSAP error being accelerated to @ACPInternists—shared with me via Twitter moment by @kidney_boy while I was chatting with @WrayCharles about that new publication
13/ #medtwitter extends our boundaries and professional networks, flattening hierarchies across time in practice and (sub)specialties, providing ACCESS to leaders, and leaders LISTENING to trainees
14/ #medtwitter DOES result in “real collaborations” and real friendships, extending boundaries, get us out of our bubbles, esp outside of “conference season”
@TomVargheseJr @Admiral_Chester @RJmdphilly @gretchendeimer @laxswamy @dinkjardine
15/ #medtwitter’s place in #meded can also be explained by a Modified Bloom’s Taxonomy which @Rjmdphilly @gretchendeimer and I presented in #ChiefChat #ChiefCamp #AIMW18 @AAIMonline, analogous to @tomvargheseJr I^4
16/ @greenQoDay is a stellar example of an education account at @JeffersonUniv @JeffIMclerkship @JeffIMchiefs being utilized to flip the classroom on inpatient wards, including increasing attending/learner accountability for followup teaching
17/#Tweetorials from @vinayprasadmd @tony_breu & @OHSUIMRes alumnus @adamrodman provide active, interaction learning extending beyond one 280-character tweet
18/ and I’ve seen a wave of inpatient attending tweets/threads bringing real-time learning pearls (esp #postitpearls) to #medwitter. HT to the @NU_IntMed group including @margMchapman @melbreggs @brhenschen @mangarone23 @metheodorou @devans_at_NUmed
19/ but does #medtwitter “work”? HOW does it work? HT @thecurbsiders episode 103 w @Gurpreet2015 provides a great framework for adult learning techniques that apply to how we interface with #medtwitter --> which I apply to the examples I already shared
20/ #medtwitter also provides a platform to BUILD COMMUNITY--to bond over stories, sharing, resilience, burnout, humanism, with hashtag driven content like #TipsforNewsDocs

21/ and even the teachers on #medtwitter can discuss how we’re more engaged by our patient care + teaching responsibilities by utilizing #medtwitter in real-time

22/ in addition to providing acccess & voice while we create/share/participate #medtwitter helps us flatten hierarchies by championing learners in novel ways, not just learners pushing themselves up but mentors giving them boosts
23/ here's a late breaking example from last night-how to share your successes without bragging & credit trainees
(PS--@DavidWienerMD was by 4th yr Sub-I attending @JeffersonAlumni-and we reconnected on #Medtwitter recently)
24/ which is why #OHSUscholarship celebrations have been a critical part of @OHSUIMRes, akin to the content tweeted by fellowship program accounts @OHSUPulmCCM @OHSU_ID in addition to educational and community building content
25/ and #medtwitter on campus @OHSUSOM @OHSUNews has let me (and others) see colleagues’ enthusiasm for working with learners, multidisciplinary staff, and patients. this kind of learner support is CONTAGIOUS
26/ so in a nutshell 👇👇👇
27/ in final conclusion, and since I’ve made it this far into this #tweetorial without mentioning @adamcifu, why you should be on #medtwitter

Thank you so much to @PlenarySessShow @Plenary_Session for having me on episode 4 to talk about the benefits of #medtwitter! It was great to find another venue (ie not typing in < 280 characters) to discuss its role in learning, patient care, advocacy, & professional development
shout out to @ReneeDversdal (about a minute after my segment starts ~24:30) and another podcast (wink, wink, nudge, nudge @thecurbsiders)
HT also to my closest #medtwitter network, who I've gotten to collaborate with after meeting on twitter, one of the benefits discussed, with subtle nods to past and current projects!

from the 2014 ACC/AHA guidelines on pre-op EKG
this is reference 140:
Conclusions: Bundle branch blocks identified on the preoperative
ECG were related to POMI and death but did not improve prediction
beyond risk factors identified on patient history.

THREAD Friday mini #tweetorial! Despite having a learner w me in #periopmedicine clinic the last two days, I neglected to tweet any #postitpearls (though lots of great learning + pt care!). BUT had 2 back-to-back cases raising questions of weight we place on self-reported pt info
2/ will be intentionally vague to protect PHI without diluting learning value...for all the talk re #EHR clutter, EHRs helping propagate accurate info but also "chart lore" false info, #backtobedside, #patientsbeforepaperwork...when can you "take a pt's word for it" in preop?
3/ pt A-early 50s, elective ortho surgery (though pain affecting QOL & activity levels), VERY vague "MI" and "CAD" history in chart from decade ago, no immediately available records, some risk factors for premature CAD (tobacco) but no interval events...

1/n #Tweetorial: As an Assistant PD for @OHSUIMRes focused on scholarship, #medtwitter, & #hcsm (health care social media), I’m often guide residents and colleagues on how to best use Twitter for academics, networking, learning, etc...
2/n recently, while welcoming newbies (esp students) and “onboarding” them to #medtwitter & #hcsm, I was asked to put together advice for IM applicants on how to best use social media during application/interview season. I think this advice is applicable beyond IM, too.
3/n First, tell me about yourself:
