    From the quotes above:
    1 in 4 young adults seriously considered suicide in June
    My mind is blown by this statement. If this isn't a national emergency, I don't know what is.

    Here's the latest cop shit (or is it citizens resisting arrest shit?) example:

    Erik Barath - This happened in Hartford yesterday. This... | Facebook

    (Woman's car is on a list as possibly stolen; police want to run her license and registration through the system but she is belligerent and not complying and eventually tries to flee, resulting in her being physically restrained while she miraculously screams at the top of her lungs despite "not being able to breathe")

    How many crimes or calls for help went unanswered thanks to the half dozen officers here who had to help handle running a simple license registration check?

    And, help me out here, the difference between the unmuzzled girl at the football game and this unhinged lady is what?
    My best guess is that in the former situation the young lady was protesting removal from public property over a citation, not a duly passed law, while the young lady in the latter situation is protesting a simple reasonable suspicion act of checking a driver's license and registration, which has been law and has been done in our country for decades.

    Or am I applying a double standard here, as our SSC forum member predicted we would a few posts ago?

    I completely disagree. This is as fundamental to the daily work of a doctor as is drug dosing, understanding basic sterilization procedure, knowledge of anatomy or any other core subject they are expected to have basic knowledge of and the ability to use that knowledge in practice.

    This is like a doctor prescribing and publicly advocating the use of a medication without understanding what it is or what it does. In that case, would you claim the doctor shouldn't have that knowledge because he is not a pharmacist or a chemist?

    Well, you are wrong about what most doctorsí daily work entails. Most doctors are not, and shouldnít be, on TV telling people what is up with covid or health policy.

    My point was not that people making policy donít have to know about things like PPV, it was that public health is a narrow slice of medicine, so finding out that a bunch of clinicians canít calculate PPV isnt surprising or even worrisome. My comment was in relation to the survey of clinicians linked above.

    An example: The PPV of urinalysis for UTI, if I test everyone, is likely to be about 50%. Thatís if 1% of the people have a UTI, so this may be high. But in real life Iím not testing everyone, only symptomatic people. Letís say 75% of the symptomatic people Iím testing have an actual UTI. So the PPV is now about 99%. This test got a lot better when applied to the correct population. So when I order a urinalysis I have no thought of calculating a PPV, nor should I. It simply doesnít help me in this case. Calculating a PPV isnít of use to clinicians very often.

    So, being a doctor doesnít necessarily give someone authority to make health policy. But having a medical degree doesnít disqualify someone either, if they have a public health background.

    One other thing to add: while Iím saying that calculating a PPV is not a core skill, there are a group of clinicians who should study up on the concept of PPV, even if they canít calculate it: the overtesters. I see this mostly in private practice: doctors and NPs who use lots of tests in a futile attempt to reduce the uncertainty inherent in clinical decision-making. Ironically, many patients feel that doctors who do lots of tests are paying close attention and giving them higher-quality care. The opposite is mostly true. Unfortunately, I donít think that a PPV refresher will solve their problem.
