The one time I actually wore a white coat haha 🤣.
Shoutout to @austinchiangmd and the rest of the realest on here for creating this form of community awareness. A bunch of you tagged me last week to participate in the #verifyhealthcare campaign, so thank you @spinedocny @rsendher @drnikoleta @doctagoop @doctorrami.do for getting me involved.
I think formal degree-conferred qualifications can provide background on a healthcare provider's competence, but I feel it's important to share with us all that a piece of paper does not necessarily mean quality care or quality info (some of our most widely-used studies/generally accepted pieces of evidence are very biased in some form or another for instance).
There are plenty of people who teach informally without fancy certifications and plenty of non-quantifiable/non-qualifiable experiences. The important take away from this is to check the overall nature of sources. Check the data, cross-check it, and do your due diligence when making decisions (it's the same way 2 "experts" can "disagree" even with many years of experience and a formal knowledge of the subject).
Devil's advocate aside, spreading consciousness and awareness of collective thought aside, this is a part of my effort at transparency.
