#TOTW (x10) ‘#AnatomyWeek’

Hey hey hey!

Long time no see! I’ve been away on me jollies so not had a #TOTW for a while! I know right!? Anyways, I thought i’d kick the new school year off with another of my theme weeks (even though i’ve graduated now and am no longer at school!). In previous weeks i’ve covered CPD, addiction, assisted dying, the Society of Radiographers and the NHS. This week I chose to shine the light on and have an #AnatomyWeek. As per, with my theme weeks, below is a summary of all my #AnatomyWeek tweets for your delectation:

  • anatomy
  • #FollowFriday for #AnatomyWeek is @Irr_Anatomist. A great resource for #anatomy via #histmed & #MedicalIllustration @SCoRMembersFrom ‘Tabulae Anatomicae’ by Bartholomeo Eustachi, 1783.  @Irr_Anatomisthistmed
  • Just happened across this and had ta share. It’s sort of relevant to #AnatomyWeek! 😂 @SCoRMembers Not every day one gets a card from students with such a thoughtful and witty personalised anatomical message. Moved. @DocMatthanseminal
  • Other websites are available, but this seems particularly good & it’s *FREE*  http://www.anatomyzone.com/
  • How many @SCoRMembers know about muscle types, points of origin & insertion? Do we need to know? Should we know? #anatomy #CPD #AnatomyWeek

muscleanatomy

pelvis

cervical

  • Interested in #anatomy? You’d do well to follow @PastMedHistory to receive Regular doses of #GraysAnatomy 👍 Avit! #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers of the skull from 1918 edition of Gray’s Anatomy by Henry Vandyke Carter skull
  • It’s back to work for me tomorrow & time for another theme week so I have decided upon #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers

books

I hope you enjoyed the latest of my theme weeks, as I certainly enjoyed putting it together! In future theme weeks I will probably take a more in-depth look at some body parts/systems. Ah well, something for the future!

Take care and have fun learning! #ReadLearnShare

#TOTW from 11-08-16 ‘#itsoktotalk’

Ciao!

Well, what a week last week was with the Olympics?! Most of my tweets were Rio-related, but one that wasn’t, got lost, so here it is again:

“Try to talk, it’s not weak whatsoever to talk.” https://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/aug/10/luke-ambler-itsokaytotalk-halve-male-suicides

“On average, 12 men killed themselves every day in 2014. Ambler believes that many had nowhere to speak about their issues without fear of being chastised or judged for having mental health problems.”

This is a truly horrific statistic.

This week’s message is simple. Guys…#itsoktotalk, so please do! Remember, “Try to talk, it’s not weak whatsoever to talk.”

#TOTW from 20-07-16 ‘#BreastCancer symptoms’

Ciao!

This week I would like to use my #TOTW to highlight the following:

“…while 90 per cent of breast lumps are not cancerous it is always advisable to have them checked.”  http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/woman-shares-photo-of-dimple-to-raise-awareness-of-breast-cancer-symptoms-a7134226.htmlbreast-cancer

Please read it and share it amongst your friends on social media. If just one person checks themselves that wouldn’t have done so then it will be worth it. Simple as that.

#TOTW from 22-06-16 ‘#Alzheimers and #Diabetes’

Ciao!

After a week off for my birthday i’m back with #TOTW, for which this week I have chosen:

I wasn’t aware of the link between and until I read this article – interesting http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/21/drugs-used-to-treat-diabetes-could-cure-alzheimers-experts-say/

“Scientists believe that the two conditions are so similar that medications already used to control levels of glucose and regulate diabetes could also halt the onset of dementia.”

I wasn’t aware of the link between the two, either way, before I read this article. Interesting. It just goes to show that there is so much research going on that most of us probably have no knowledge of. Hopefully by me sharing the articles and stories that I do there may be a few more people at least that get to find out about some of these interesting developments!

#TOTW from 08-06-16 ‘Addiction – is it a disease?’

Ciao!

Well, what a great week this has been. #UKRC2016 was brilliant. Not just just an opportunity to meet up with fellow #SoMe types, but also it got me re-enthused about the possibilities for future research in radiography. There will be a blog to follow in the next week or so on that matter!

As for this week, i’ve already blogged about #UKRC2016 which was my highlight, but there was a tweet that I think didn’t get seen by many and i’d like to give it another chance, so my #TOTW is :

“the disease label continues to simplify our conceptualization of an extremely messy issue.”  http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/07/addiction-not-disease-science-stigma

I don’t know enough about the subject to give a reasoned opinion, but by sharing this again I hope that more people will get to read it and gain a greater understanding about addiction.

Over to you!

#TOTW from 03-6-16 ‘#LGBTI+’

Ciao!

Good week? Weekend? Hope so! Now I popped this tweet out on Friday afternoon and I don’t think it was seen by as many people as I think it should be seen by – hence my choice for #TOTW is:

Know what they mean?

As I said in my reply to the tweet, a lot of people may not feel that this is important and fair enough, each to their own. I however, would respectfully disagree. It *IS* important if you are one of the minority groups that is trying to get your message out there and to educate others as to who you are and how you feel.

The link above takes you to a really good webpage that explains the whole abbreviation thing and how it has evolved. I too used to think that we should stop at ‘LGBT’ and the other minority groups would come under that umbrella. However, as I have learnt more about the issues of equality and diversity, I feel that it is important to represent the ever-growing number of individuals that do not feel they are either lesbian, gay, bi, transgender or intersex. This we can most easily and fairly do I believe, by adding either a ‘+’ or a ‘*’ after the the abbreviation LGBTI – hence giving you the title of this blog!

It would be great if we lived in a world where a person’s gender and or sexuality wasn’t an issue. However, we don’t, and so it is important that people of a minority group feel suitably represented. Agree or disagree, but thanks for taking the time to read it 🙂
