Sustainable healthcare is good for staff
Ooops! If you listened to episode 3 when it first came out you may have realised that the title didn't quite match the content. We've just updated the title and the show notes below, and stay tuned for when we'll be soon releasing an episode on how sustainable healthcare can be good for patients. In a system where healthcare workers are continually described as overworked and burnt out, how can we expect them to find the time to act on the climate? In this episode we turn that assumption on its head, and, in fact, show how acting to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare can help staff find joy in their work agai...

Planet centred care - It ’s all about working together
Healthcare is a complex system, and if we want to make changes such as those needed for sustainable healthcare, we need to work across multiple teams, and make sure we hear everyone’s voice, including our patients’. In this episode we’ll discuss how we can communicate and work with those different groups, and some novel ways of getting the message across from T-rexes worth of plastic gloves to art made out of surgical waste. Guests for this episode: Nicola Wilson, lead clinical educator Great Ormond Street Children’s hospital and Maria Koijck, artist and former patient. Read more about the Gloves are Off ...

Interventions for preventing and reducing the use of physical restraints in all long-term care settings
Several Cochrane reviews look at the evidence on interventions that might be used for older people in long-term care settings and these include reviews on ways to prevent or reduce the use of interventions that might do more harm than good. Among these, the review of interventions for preventing and reducing the use of physical restraints was updated in July 2023. We asked lead author, Ralph M öhler of the University Hospital Düsseldorf in Germany, to tell us about physical restraints and the latest findings of the review in this podcast.

The Costs of Quality Reporting
US hospitals report data on numerous quality metrics to government and independent rating organizations, but the cost of doing so is not well known. JAMA Associate Editor Karen E. Joynt Maddox, MD, discusses a new study that examines just how many quality metrics hospitals have to report, and attempts to quantify how much data collection and reporting costs in hours and dollars, with corresponding author Stephen A. Berry MD, PhD, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. Related Content: The Volume and Cost of Quality Metric Reporting (Source: JAMA Author Interviews)

Pride in healthcare
We're in pride month, and this year the celebration of LGBT+ people seems to be increasingly contentious. Healthcare's treatment of queer people has improved hugely since the days when being gay was considered a mental disorder, and would end a doctor's career - but that doesn't mean that everything is equal. In this episode of Doctor Informed, we're hearing from two doctors who are out and proud at work, about what it's been like to be queer in medicine, and what good allyship looks like. Our Guests Michael Farqhuar is consultant in sleep medicine at the Evelina London Children's Hospital, he also helped set up the NH...
