    Feelings, Not Facts: The Rise of the Global Anti-Vax Movement (And How the Medical Profession Has Unwittingly Fuelled its Growth)

    Feelings, Not Facts: The Rise of the Global Anti-Vax Movement (And How the Medical Profession Has Unwittingly Fuelled its Growth)

    In January of 2019, the World Health Organization declared vaccine hesitancy to be one of the top ten existential threats to the human race, yet since that declaration, and despite millions of dollars being ploughed into combatting the flow of vaccine misinformation, the online presence of the anti-vax community has grown by an incredible 500% over the last 12 months. So what-the-Edward-Jenner is going on? In this episode, I’m going to examine the reasons behind this exponential rise of anti-vax sentiment, how the medical profession itself has inadvertently provided the fuel for its growth, and how this is pushing us at supersonic speed towards a global healthcare disaster.

    We Really Need to Talk About Aged Care ... (But We Won't)

    We Really Need to Talk About Aged Care ... (But We Won't)

    Over the past 23 years, there have been 19 major inquiries, investigations and reviews into aged care services in Australia, culminating in the current Royal Commission. Every one of those has told us – as future inquiries, investigations and reviews will continue to tell us - that we really, really need to talk about aged care. But we don’t. And we won’t. And we probably never will. In this episode, Darren Wake talks about just how dysfunctional residential aged care is in Australia and why there is one elephant in the room that everyone is too embarrassed to confront. It’s an issue that, by itself, creates the largest single barrier to a constructive and productive dialogue about aged care services across the country, both now, and in the future. And if you’ve worked in aged care, you already know what it is. The Handover, brought to you by Ausmed. For more information and healthcare resources, visit www.ausmed.com.au.
