Please visit the new site at www.forensichealth.com
Subscribers, we’re working on transferring your subscriptions to the new site. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience!
You’ll have to go see for yourself, at FHO’s brand new home! Please reset your bookmarks to www.forensichealth.com. Email subscribers, we *should* have your addresses transferred over to the new site by the end of the weekend (cross your fingers). In the meantime, the site will be quiet until Monday as we finish furnishing our new home. I promise I’ll be back next week with a tour of the new features.
For all my American readers, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. See you all over at the new site!
Just a quick reminder: you have until Wednesday at noon ET to enter the Sexual Assault Quick Reference giveaway. Head over to the post and leave your comment to be eligible!
SAFE-TA (a project of IAFN) is offering a free webinar December 15th at 2pm, ET: Timing Considerations for Sexual Assault Examinations. Presented by Jack Ballantyne, Ph.D. and Pam Marshall, M.S., this webinar will offer advanced education to practitioners on issues involving timing of evidence collection, advances in forensic DNA technology, and factors affecting time since intercourse intervals.
Just a quick reminder: you still have a couple more days before the Sexual Assault Quick Reference giveaway. Head over to the post and leave your comment to be eligible!
Sometimes it’s a relief to just get back to basic clinical assessment skills. Anytime I see an offering that reinforces exam techniques, I’m all over it. I noticed that the American College of Forensic Examiners has an online course available that appears to be along this vein: Types of Knee Injuries and How They Occur–A Forensic Review.
This week over at the sustainability site, a few things for you to peruse:
- A great handwashing poster that made me smile, particularly timely since my house is currently germ-central
- A look at the challenges of asking for help and some of the opinions out there on how best to do it
- And of course, a reminder about our current giveaway here at FHO.
Speaking of which, please don’t forget to add your comment to the giveaway post to be eligible for the Sexual Assault Quick Reference, courtesy of G.W. Medical Publishing. It’s a perfect size for use in the clinical arena (did I mention it has photos?), or a fantastic gift to giveaway to a member of your team (say, the person who did the most cases in ’09 or took the most call). And please keep in mind, eligibility is not limited to US and Canadian readers, so for all of my international readers (I see you in my stats, so I know you’re out there), please include your comments, too. Deadline to enter is November 25th at 12pm ET.
Bonne chance and have a great weekend!
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
There are a lot of changes coming down the pike here at FHO. Last week we began working on a brand new website that will update our look and offer more content and more options for readers (I’m hoping for a smooth launch by end of the month–more on that soon). And this week I’m happy to announce a new partnership with G.W. Medical Publishing.
New partnerships are a cause for celebration. Given the nascent collaboration between Forensic Healthcare Online and G.W. Medical Publishing (soon to be STM Learning, Inc.), we are making merry by offering a free giveaway of a very useful resource. The only thing you have to do is offer your insight by answering this simple question:
