The use of WhatsApp breaks down traditional hierarchies and allows doctors to communicate more freely with their immediate clinical team. The groups allow doctors to work together more effectively, and enable shy or less-experienced team members to seek help when they need it. Because of this, the maternity and obstetrics department staff members at Masaka Regional Referral Hospital are relying on a WhatsApp group for effective and fast communication while monitoring patients.
By Christopher Kisekka & Moses MuwulyaMasaka — On a cold Monday evening, Ms Aisha Namukasa's five-year-old daughter developed a high temperature and began convulsing. Ms Namukasa, a resident of Kako Village, Kalagala Parish, Mukungwe Sub-county in Masaka District took her child to a nearby Health Centre III, but the health worker directed her to seek medical assistance from a member of Village Health Team (VHT), claiming that she was tired.
According to Ms Aisha Nakaliisa, a VHT member in Nyendo, a Masaka Town suburb, some health workers have made it a habit to refer patients to them even when they can be easily managed at health centre level. “We are overstretched, many of us handle more than 200 households and most health workers send patients to us yet they don’t want to give us drugs,” she says.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
