Psst!  It’s at the end!!



Before you start 

PLEASE NOTE: That myself and fellow FibroFlutters are patients leading a patient support group and a patient led social media network for our advocacy, networking and support services, we are not medical professionals.

Please can you read our ‘Disclaimer’ & ‘Privacy’ notes and if you have a problem we are always open to discussion, just e-mail Carole   fibroflutters@gmail.com 




 

The message I have for you all today is naturally in connection to #BoneJointWeek and the week long campaign via the Arthritis & Musculoskeletal (MSK) Alliance (ARMA).

You know!, there are over 300 undertermined MSK conditions which is reason enough to campaign for awareness, and progression, within this area of health advocacy.  The fact that there are already hundreds of determined conditions on top of that then the scale of MSK within the medical healthcare industry becomes a harsh reality.

It is true, and sad to state, that we cost healthcare systems a vast amount of money no matter where in World we live. Whether it be for the pain medications; persistent medical consultations ~ for life ~; medical devices / support aids; drug delivery systems; Digital Apps for monitoring aspects of our healthcare; treatments and surgeries; emergency care; support care and even journalling tools.

Finding easier and more economical ways of doing all of these things has become a necessity so let’s hope that this week we can all work together to highlight the World of #Arthritis and #MSK and the great need for progression.

Thankyou, and please share #BoneJointWeek and the following from below this week and help ARMA get their messages out there and be noticed. 

We begin this with #WorldArthritisDay 12th October which is of course TODAY!

The Sixth Lumbar Vertebrae: The Anatomy Behind the Rare Extra Bone
Zawn Villines | Spinal Cord | November 02, 2015

Visit Spinal Cord website:  www.spinalcord.com


When I was diagnosed with this ‘rare’ anomoly it was at the same time as the ‘spina bifida occulta’ and the GP told me he’d never heard of a case during his career where someone actually had both conditions.  This was over 20 years ago and ‘I’, sadly, still don’t know a great deal about either condition.

#WorldSpineDay is on 16th October 2018

Are you a #DisabilityGameChanger?

Scope | The fight for equality |  11 October 2018

Being a person with varying debilitating problems I am classed as being disabled.  I don’t look particularly disabled and I have the capacity to get on my feet and move around.  However, the excessive level of joint hypermobility, dreadful balance and coordination and vertigo make me a bit of a liability when walking around.  I use walking stick sometimes one, sometimes two, or I have my electric power chair for getting around town in.

There is never a time when I go out that I don’t come across some form of discouraging and negative incidence, whether it is just a simple sneer from someone when they see me stand up, or climb out of the wheelchair to walk to the Ladies bathroom, to the people who just plain and simply can’t accept that not all people who are disabled are paralysed.  I’m not bad-mouthing those who are paralysed because they come under just as much unfairness and scrutiny which is why this campaign by SCOPE is so important.

It is time that we were experiencing better fairness and equality, in fact it is well overdue, yes, naturally I’m biased about that but at least I can acknowledge the problem and stand up and fight for the cause.  Not just for myself but for all the FibroFlutter followers and supporters out there who also need this to happen.

Workplaces need to be better equipped, employers need to be educated, but most of all the Government shouldn’t just recognise our issues but start doing something about them.

Please join me and 5000 others, sign up to become a #|DisabilityGameChanger and help SCOPE to fight inequality for the disabled

FibroFlutters supporting eyeforpharma as #PatientAdvocates  #PatientVoice

Look out for our report following our jaunt to the eyeforpharma Patient Summit next week 16-17th October to read all about the conferences and our experiences:

Patient Summit Europe  incl. ‘Im-patient’ | use the hashtags ~  #impatientconf & #efppatient 

8th AnnualMarketing and Customer Innovation Europe


Wow!

It is all getting nerve-wracking and exciting all at the same time now as I prepare everything I need to take to London next week.  Even the packing of the suitcase is making me smile, however that could be because I haven’t actually left the NE UK, since going to Barcleona in March!

LOL, no really!  I am not that lucky to get away very often because health, or lack of pennies, have their way of causing cancellations and re-scheduling, ask my friends… 

Anyhoo!  this is one trip that I shan’t be cancelling due to it’s importance in our World of ‘patient’, ‘health’ & ‘research’ advocacy in connection to pharma, and the medical healthcare industries. 

Getting your valuable messages out to them is necessary, the things we have all discussed within our #chronicillness communities regarding patient support progarams (PSP’s) and patient-engagement programs within pharma and how they can help to incorporate us as patients into their supply chains in manners that benefit them, but also us as patients.  Okay, it may seem a bit raw to say ‘supply-chains’ but in the world of business management and organisational structure that is exactly what it is!  I won’t dress it up!!

We as patient’s are aware of this which is why these Patient Summits are so valuable, to both sides.  The fact that pharma has softened a little and is beginning to make the changes so that patients are more humanised within their supply-chains proves that efforts are being made.

Our trip to London will teach us to what extent they are doing this, but also what measures companies are willing to go to in order to win our trust back so that relationship building can begin.  What type of relationship? well that will solely depend on the company. I don’t think there can be a universal decision made on that aspect of this due to the many different types of pharma / healthcare companies, it is down to the company as an individual component to assess themselves to find out which routes would suit them best.

Naturally this is only one aspect up for discussion, there are many more, equally as important as this.

Well I can tell you that my Fellow Founding Five Flutter Sonia and I are really looking forward to going, and to also meeting many fellow patient voices / advocates that we only know online, and also to meeting up with those that we met in Barcelona and I can imagine there will not be enough time for us all to tell each other what we’ve been up to because there has been a lot of work going on between us all right across the Globe.

Looking forward to telling you all about it when we get back

Wishing you all wellness ~ Carole

The ultimate driver for the pharmaceutical industry’s health is meeting the needs of patients, otherwise it will cease to matter.

What It’s Really Like Living With an Invisible Illness | Pain Resource | 9 October 2018


Opening lines:

When you’re living with an invisible illness, you can look perfectly fine on the outside. The inside though is often a dramatically different story. Those of us who face this battle day in and day out live with burdensome conditions such as fibromyalgiaarthritismigrainesEhlers-Danlos syndromeautoimmune disordersSjogren’s syndromebipolar disorder and depression. The list doesn’t end there.

Only 3 weeks to go and we’ll be packing our little cases and boarding the train to London, will you be there?

I can’t believe how time has flown past and the conference is only a few weeks away.  It is really exciting to be involved and helping to collaboratively bring about changes within the world of medical healthcare. 

Helping to close the gap between pharma and patients and increase relations, encourage collaborations and stave off the ideas that patients can be manipulated.

Thanks to eyeforpharma’s regard towards Patients, Patients Included, and giving us a platform to share our patient voices, and our input during roundtables and panel discussions at their pharma conferences we can help pharma improve the products and services they make.  Help improve patient engagement programs / or, PSP’s Patient support programs between pharma and patients in ways that improve service design, product and service quality using collaborative methods and utilising all stakeholders to produce end results.

  • Will patient-centricity win-over pharma in London, how are companies becoming patientcentric, which companies are trying to be patientcentric?

  • Is patient- engagement working for pharma, what isn’t working? It can’t all be perfect!?

  • How is the concept of ‘Patient-engagement’ progressing is it proving to be useful, or does it need to be reassessed as a tool?


Innovation is also hot-topic as new ways of producing things have developed, including the use of AR, VR, AI, 3D printing and robotics to help improve surgical procedures, general medication delivery systems and even new bones and not that long ago even skin tisue, for a few examples.

Also, the different new ways that innovation is assisting clinical research and especially biopharma, health education videos for hospitals and HCP’s, and much more from the world of digital. Will we see some of that in London within the innovation, science and technology sector of the conference?


Of course aside from the World of Medical Affairs is the Impatient Conference and the part of the journey where we really do hope to make a difference.  It really has been designed by patients and the hope is that we can help bring patients and pharma closer together at this Pharma & Patient Co-creation event. 

  • How are pharma increasing patient relations, are they rebulding our trust yet?

  • How will we as patients convince pharma to make the necessary changes required to rebuild their pharma-patient relations?

  • What does pharma believe it should do? Do we as patients agree with pharma? If not, how do we compromise so that solutions can be formed and progression can continue.  Otherwise this time next year we will still be discussing it!

It’s time for pharma to stop ‘saying’ and start ‘doing’, be more proactive and begin to move forwards.

(Opinions are my own)

Our mission is to make pharma more open and valued
The ultimate driver for the pharmaceutical industry’s health is meeting the needs of patients, otherwise it will cease to matter. For healthcare to be as good as it could be, the strength, skills and resources of our industry need to be fully integrated into health outcomes and we need pharma experience at the decision-making table.
We believe the industry must focus on a business model combining service with product, with patients at the center.

Every morning and evening I was posting several links to a variety of online newspapers and thought that maybe I could post from here via newsletters, our website/blog,  instead.

This is to ensure that all the news and stories go out to everyone that follows us across the social media platforms that we have profiles/accounts.

There’s a few links to my favourite online newspapers for finding a variety of health related news from other Chronic Illness Bloggers & Warriors, for up to date news about health conditions such as latest research papers or people sharing hints and tips about how they cope day-to-day.

Let us help them by showing our support by sharing the news and stories that they share.

If you publish a health related paper.li or other health news magazine/paper that isn’t listed and you would like it to be, please contact me – Carole Sian at fibroflutters@gmail.com or use the form below and let me know, always happy to help 🙂




FibroFlutters continuously

Advocating for a Multi-Disciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare. With a model approach using all the ‘stakeholders’ I’ve designed a patient’s perspective of what patient-centred care, patient-included, patient-involved, patient-centric should look like and involve, that’s everyone by the way! 

You all need to pitch in!!




Please note that I have opted-in to receive all the newsletters that I post from and also please remember to read the privacy policies.

Also, due to the excessive amount of newsletters landing in my inbox, and my haphazard sleep cycle, not all will get updated daily!

If you like what you read PLEASE remember to share and opt-in
