Progress in Evidence Based Care and Solutions Are Shown On “Informed” With Rob Lowe

There have been revolutionary advances in the healthcare sector over the past decades. Better understanding of the various mechanisms causing diseases has led to the improvement of the ability to diagnose, treat, and prevent common afflictions. The innovations that underlie this progress continue advancing and accelerating change as medical interventions and new technologies offer new options for care as well as treatment.

Robe Lowe’sInformed” series highlights a range of issues in the US society. One of the episodes shows progress in evidence-based care and solutions.

Evidence-based medicine or care started in response to the limitations or challenges in both the understanding and the use of published evidence. Initially, the focus of evidence-based care was to educate clinicians to understand and effectively use published evidence to optimize clinical care. Part of the understanding involved the science of systematic reviews. As evidence-based medicine progressed, there was recognition of the limitations of using evidence alone. For this reason, there was need to emphasize on combining critical appraisals of the available evidence with the preferences and values of the patients through shared decision-making.

Evidence-based care has also progressed to incorporate and further develop the science of producing guidelines of clinical practice that are trustworthy. Some of the contributions of evidence-based care include using solid scientific interventions in the practice of medicine, recognizing the role of the patients’ preferences and values in clinical decision-making, and developing more sophisticated evidence hierarchies.

The newest episode from the “Informed” series, hosted by Rob Lowe, will be discussing the Curse of Tippecanoe

The Curse of Tippecanoe is a phrase that is used to describe the in office death of a US president elected in years divisible by twenty, starting in 1840. The “curse” is said to have originated after the Battle of Tippecanoe when the Native American leader, Tenskwatawa, cursed all future presidents elected in office the same year as William Henry Harrison. The “curse” was first widely noted in a “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” book published in 1931. All presidents elected into office in a year ending in zero up until Ronald Reagan did in fact die during their first or second term. This fact is what gained the phrase popularity. Since the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 no president has died whilst in office.

Tune into this episode from “Informed”, an educational series distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations, for insight into this little known piece of American history.

Rob Lowe, host of the educational series “Informed”, is presenting the topic of Cable-Stayed Bridges to viewers in the series’ latest episode. 

Cable-stayed bridges are of a unique design that are the ideal structures for crossings in which a regular cantilever bridge is not long enough and a suspension bridge is not feasible for one reason or another. A cable-stayed bridge is a great alternative to a suspension bridge at a crossing where the soil on either side is not strong enough to support the main cables, or the cost of the excessive amount of cables to get across the gap would far outweigh that of the cable-stayed. Crossings that are too large would mean that a cantilever bridge would become heavy to the point that the roadway would be compromised and the cost of materials would be too great. Cable-stayed bridges also offer engineers and architects a chance to create a bridge that is not only functional, but aesthetically pleasing. This episode will include interviews with engineers and architects to find out what goes into making a bridge like this a reality and this pro’s and cons to this type of construction.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the premier of this latest episode from the “Informed” series, with your host Rob Lowe. “Informed” is produced and provided for Public Television PBS Member stations.

Rob Lowe, host of the educational series “Informed”, will be examining the topic of Voice Recognition Software in the newest segment from the series.

Voice Recognition software is a ground-breaking software that enables anyone to enter text into a word processing program through the spoken word. Voice recognition software enables the user to type without ever having to actually touch the keyboard. Individuals who are blind now have the ability to communicate via text without having to worry about seeing the screen.

Voice recognition software started out rather primitive but has evolved into a system that can translate hundreds of languages. Modern voice recognition software has no problem translating hundreds of thousands of spoken words into text in real time. This software is perfect for those that suffer from diminished eyesight, carpal tunnel, or simply need to multi task as they create the document.

Voice recognition technology does much more than simply translate text; it can also open apps, send e-mails, as well as a myriad of other functions on the computer. Be sure to tune into this episode of “Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe, a production distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations if you’re someone who has a need for voice recognition technology.
