Storytelling is a powerful part of human culture as clearly evidenced by the power of podcasts particularly this one, which focuses on medical anecdotes to both entertain & inform. However, the emotional response of anecdotes can be used to spread misinformation & create harm when used to contradict evidence based medicine by anti-vaccine or so called “alternative medicine” advocates.

Lucky for us, Dr. Jonathon Howard, a neurologist & psychiatrist, who has written a book on critical thinking & cognitive biases in medicine joins the podcast this week to explain why are brains like stories & how that can be used against us.

Primary care is one of the least glamorous areas of medicine a provider can go into prompting many doctors, physician assistants, & nurse practitioners to opt for specialties that come with higher salaries, greater recognition, & more esteem. However, primary care providers are often the first call & biggest advocate for their patients in the complex world of medicine resulting in long lasting relationships that can hardly be found elsewhere.

 

Dr. Jeff, a doctorally prepared nurse practitioner, describes his crucial role providing such care in a rural Midwest community.

 

Warning: Please be advised sensitive subjects are discussed as always, but this episode contains a case about suicide which may be particularly troubling for some listeners.

Episode 19 is packed with more stories from EMS this week. A married Firefighter/ paramedic couple share what it’s like working together as partners in an urban 911 system, moving to a rural department, parenting a Type 1 diabetic & working in a profession that they describe as a kaleidoscope of human joy and trauma. 

 
One of the calls they reflect on truly epitomizes the brief glimpse EMS gets into the lives of strangers with the bittersweet finding of note from a husband to his wife of many decades written before he passed in his sleep in the next room. The note simply said, “The donuts are in the fridge, love”, but will never be forgotten by his wife or the paramedics on scene that day.
