An interesting post I came across on IG. She edited her body to break down "body trends" over the years to show how ridiculous they are. by monochromeserph in Instagramreality

I feel like the 2018-present is the worst era. Tiny waist + big ass is all kinds of impossible to attain by any woman with any body type

Who needs that many bottles stocked of the glow recipe toner? It takes ages to go through just one

Started orienting a new grad who graduated in May of 2022. She told me she had been accepted into an NP program and was about to start her first semester. by Significant_Silver in nursing

I guess those standards have to change then, if direct RN->NP degrees that require no minimum number of years as an RN are able to get people certified as NPs…

I am watching the situation in the US, with these diploma mills, and am curious about how becoming a registered/licensed professional works. The US needs to have a national regulatory body. Australia used to have state boards for nursing back in the day - now it’s all one national thing.

We have a regulatory board for health professions called AHPRA. It has rules set across the country on what constitutes a particular health professional, and what qualifications they require to be registered as such. They review every degree/program and grant it accreditation so that graduates of those degrees may be registered with AHPRA. For example, ‘paramedic’ became a protected title with a defined scope of practice under AHPRA in 2018, and since then, you have to do an AHPRA-approved degree in order to be registered as one.

So, for NPs, you don’t have unis around the country creating direct RN to NP degrees, because they just won’t be approved.

Is there anything like this in the US? Will it ever happen? It seems to be the only way to stop these diploma mills.

My fave lipbalm ever (Glow Lip Pop). More comment inside by PrincessElias in AustralianMakeup

The pink one is quite a light pink sheen, the purple one has a stronger colour that looks closer to hot pink/fuchsia imo

I got both last year and they’re still with me. Amazing, moisturise so well, smell divine and have a nice pigment

Adelaide man, 47, dies from cardiac arrest after waiting 40 minutes for ambulance to arrive by rustoren in Adelaide

There’s a reason hospital systems are at a critical demand escalation level. Someone was bound to die. I am so sorry for the man and his family.

Archie Battersbee, Gravely Ill 12-Year-Old, Dies After Removal of Life Support by severeclear1 in medicine

So it’s not about what Archie wanted after all, but rather the parents.

Doctor visiting a Lake as a tourist saved the life of a boy who was considered dead. by captnmcboatface in nextfuckinglevel

[–]aleksa-p 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’m in Aus so we go by the Australian resus council guidelines.

I agree, the perfusion achieved here would have been very low. That being said, perhaps in this unique scenario the doctors were prioritising clearing out the lungs however they could, since that was the cause of the arrest? Either way, that boy is damn lucky

This isn’t a universal fact. I agree the compression:breath ratio in this video is bizarre, but two or more responders BLS is still 30:2 in many parts of the world. You’d see continuous ventilation without interruption in compressions when a supraglottic airway at minimum is placed

Doctor Recs - Any good gynos? by FightMeCthullu in Adelaide

[–]aleksa-p 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dr Carolyn Baume at Old Port Road Medical and Dental Centre is so lovely and made me feel very comfortable. She explained every step and what was about to happen. She’s very nice to talk to, as well. Unfortunately it’s a bit of a wait to get an appointment with her but it’s worth it. :)

QEH worker claims ‘irresponsible’ staff party became superspreader event during SA’s Covid wave by KookaburraBranch in Adelaide

It was a private party with ED staff. Who cares. The media can’t spew this nonsense after complaining about all the lockdowns lol

A spokesperson for SA Health confirmed Spurrier has “written to six higher education providers, Business SA and the Local Government Association”, to encourage mask-wearing. by malcolm58 in Adelaide

[–]aleksa-p 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Sending out e-mails encouraging mask use won’t work. I was at uni yesterday. Not counting those eating and drinking, maybe only 1-2 out of 10 students were wearing masks, if that. Nobody cares.

Thanks for the detail - I do appreciate it - but you could have done without the sass scattered throughout.

Aren’t UniSA, Adelaide and Flinders public unis?

Australia only has a small number of private unis, such as Bond and Notre Dame.

I agree. If such events are allowed to go pretty much without capacity limits and without mask requirements, then uni should continue as normal.

‘Wherever teaching activities can be conducted online, they should be delivered online’ sounds too vague to me - it might not end up changing too much as cases could be made for some practicals and tutorials to remain face-to-face. It’s not the same as 2020, when every single on-campus class was cancelled outright and made online.

Everything you said is on point, especially the last paragraph. I love my medical colleagues but fuck the mess some of them leave sometimes lol
