This was one of those weeks where there were SO MANY hashtags supporting incredible conversations that I truly cannot choose just one. Included in this post are:

#CultureOfHealth
#FP2020Progress
#GatesSocial
#IWD2014
#TEDxMan
#EBNJC
#RWJF1stFri
#PatientChat
#MedX
#HCLDR
#HCSM

#CultureOfHealth

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently released a new initiative called “Culture Of Health“, complete with hashtag, video, “six word stories,” and more. The campaign has expanded beyond the original vision for it.

#FP2020Progress

The Family Planning Partnership, associated with the United Nations, has a goal of reaching 120 million more women with information to support reproductive healthcare decisionmaking. They are also using #FP2020 and #AskFP2020 to help spread awareness, information, and open dialog.

#GatesSocial

The Gates Foundation had an event in support of International Women’s Day which focused on family planning, reproductive equity and resources.

#IWD2014

Of course, then there was also the official International Women’s Day activities and hashtag.

#TEDxMan

I really really wanted to do a whole post on TEDxManhattan, which every year focuses on sustainable food and best nutrition practices.

#EBNJC

The EBNJC conversation last week was also completely worth an entire post. This chat was based on a BMJ blogpost by Marie Ennis-O’Connor, “How Online Patient Communities are Changing the Face of Cancer Care.” The chat took this topic and refocused it through the lens of evidence-based nursing.

#RWJF1stFri

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has a monthly “First Friday” Twitter chat, with last week’s topic being how to “flip the clinic,” parallel to the concept of flipped classrooms. The basic concept is the doctor as guide in support of personalized medicine and decisionmaking, with the responsibility for good health and good choices going to the patient. I may have oversimplified, but do please read the chat. They also used the hashtags #FliptheClinic and created midstream #FliptheWaitingRoom.

#PatientChat

Flipping the clinic was also a topic of conversation at the weekly patient chat.

#MedX

AND flipped clinic, patient engagement, and quantified self were also at the MedX hangout and Twitter chat.

#HCLDR

The Healthcare Leaders Twitter chat connected patient engagement with health literacy.

#HCSM

Last but not least comes the fabulous conversation in last night’s HCSM Twitter chat about the new nutrition labels, and how they intersect with both health literacy and design thinking in healthcare.
