Text or Call 988: SAMHSA – Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

By Staff Reporters

988, a New National Suicide Hotline, Launched on July 16th, 2022

**

***

A new national suicide hotline, 988, becomes operational nationwide on July 16th. People experiencing a mental health emergency, such as suicidal thoughts, a substance-use crisis, or any other emotionally distressing event, will be able to call during times of crisis, but operators will also be available via text and online chat (at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat), according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The 988 hotline will essentially replace the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK); however, the previous hotline will not be discontinued when 988 is rolled out, and callers will be directed to the same services offered via 988. Mental health experts say the new hotline will provide necessary updates to the services currently provided by the 1-800 number, chief among them a focus on sending trained experts to respond to mental health emergencies rather than law enforcement who are unfamiliar with protocols when approaching suicidal individuals.

FIGHTING Inflation!

By Staff Reporters

Fed Official Says Inflation Fight Will Take Time, Despite Signs of Progress

Bringing inflation down from 40-year highs is likely to take time and will require a slowdown in economic growth and reduced demand for workers by employers, a Federal Reserve official said yesterday.

Those efforts are showing tentative signs of progress, said Fed governor Philip Jefferson, in his first public remarks since taking office in May. But Mr. Jefferson also said he remains concerned that higher prices could change consumer expectations around inflation in a way that makes further price increases self-fulfilling.

On Cultural Sensitivity in Education and Medicine

Join Our Mailing List

A Modern Integral Component of Healthcare Training

[By Render S. Davis MHA CHE]

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA]

***

While America has often been called a “nation of immigrants,” it has never been more true than today. Consequently, the challenge for physicians and other health care providers, in both large cities and small communities, is meeting the health care needs of increasingly diverse and multi-cultural populations who speak different languages and have social norms, traditions, and values that may substantially differ from their own. Problems arise when clinicians expect, even demand, that patients and their families discard their cultural foundations and adhere to the health care provider’s view of the care and decision-making process.

Instead, the health care team should be more aware of and sensitive to the values and beliefs of patients who come from other cultures; working within to assure that the patient’s individual rights are supported and wishes honored to the fullest extent possible.

In her award-winning book, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, Ann Fadiman chronicled this tragic clash of two cultures in medical care for a child of the traditional Hmong people of Laos, transplanted to California after the Vietnam War.

In the book, Fadiman recounts a conversation with Professor Arthur Kleinman of Harvard University, a highly regarded expert in multicultural relations and conflict, who noted that “If you cannot see that your own culture has its own set of interests, emotions, and biases, how can you expect to deal successfully with someone else’s culture?”

Former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., now Director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse College of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, helped develop a special curriculum designed to foster greater cultural competence among physicians and health care providers.

Called the “CRASH Course,” the program emphasizes:

  1. Cultural Awareness. Acknowledging the diversity and legitimacy of the many cultures that make up the fabric of American Society;
  2. Respect. Valuing other cultural norms, even if they differ or conflict with your own;
  3. Assess and affirm. Understanding the points of both congruence and difference among cultural approaches to decision-making; learning how to achieve the best outcomes within the cultural framework of the patient and family unit;
  4. Sensitivity and self awareness. Being secure in your own values; while willing to be flexible in working through cultural differences with others;
  5. Humility. Recognizing that every culture has legitimacy and that no one is an expert in what is best for others; being willing to subordinate your values for those of another to achieve the goals of treatment.

There is little doubt that multi-cultural sensitivity will continue to grow as an increasingly integral component of medical education and risk management in health care practice.

“Small- and medium-sized businesses with two to 200 employees suffered the most attacks during the period, accounting for 46%, or 2,300 ransomware attacks total, according to the report.” That’s us, Doc. Patterson and Schein won’t admit it, but if you don’t put patients’ information on a computer, you and your patients are completely safe from ransomware.

“US organizations hit by almost half of all ransomware since 2020 – American exceptionalism extends to ransomware as organizations based in the U.S. suffered the greatest number of attacks, ahead of Canada and the U.K.

By Matt Kapko: Cybersecurity Dive, Sept. 28, 2022.

PODCAST: The Real Secret About Why Corporate Mergers Fail

AN AUDIO PRESENTATION

 

By Vitaliy Katsenelson CFA

***

Corporate acquisitions often fail for one simple reason: the buyer pays too much. An old Wall Street adage comes to mind: Price is what you pay, value is what you get.

It all starts with a control premium

When we purchase shares of a stock, we pay a price that is within pennies of the last trade. When a company is acquired, the purchase price is negotiated during long dinners at fine restaurants and comes with a control premium that is higher than the latest stock quotation.

How much above?
