Archive for the ‘Powerpoint Presentation’ Category
STIPDA, ASTHO, and NACCHO have several archived injury prevention webcasts, 2 of which might appeal: Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Maternal and Child Health Programs, and Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Healthy Again Initiatives. They are free to access–the archive site also includes a variety of supporting articles and other materials for the maternal-child session that are probably worth perusing, particularly for those of you working in the area of abusive head trauma (scroll to mid-page to find them).
Much of the content on the sustainability site this week was pretty self-centered, I must say. But hopefully it’s useful, so, if you’ll indulge me:
- The slides from the session I did at NSAC on sustainability are posted here under Conference Handouts (click here to go to them directly). They’ll be available for 30 days (after that, by request).
- I’ll be hosting a web forum on sustainability for OVC Sept. 30th from 2-3pm
- A fantastic (and relatively brief) tool for managers of all stripes: a guide to effective communication that has some great recommendations for delivering bad news, holding meetings that don’t waste people’s times, and much more.
I’m off to the wilds of Colorado this weekend and will be working from there most of next week. I’ll try and keep posts pretty regular, assuming my connectivity is reasonable. Have a great weekend!
I received a request from a reader looking for information about the medical care of children pulled out of meth labs (also known as drug endangered children). I know several of you out there are doing this kind of work, so please chime in with recommended resources you like and use.
Monday, pharmaceutical companies can start marketing a generic version of Plan B. I hope this will increase access to emergency contraception (EC), but I am skeptical. Part of the problem is a fundamental misunderstanding of how Plan B works (or doesn’t work, for that matter). Part of the problem is the regulatory issues which won’t change just because there’s a generic version.
I’d like to think that clinicians are better informed about EC today, but I’m not sure that’s true everywhere. However, I stumbled across a pretty cool tool that can assist you in putting together a high quality presentation on this topic, should you care to provide some training to staff or colleagues.
I don’t know how many of you read the Sunday NY Times, but this past weekend the Magazine ran a special series: Saving the World’s Women. There were a few articles that were particularly interesting, including The Women’s Crusade and an interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Not surprisingly, trafficking and gender-based violence were discussed repeatedly.
CROWD has a really terrific powerpoint on gynecological consideration in treating women with physical disabilities. I post it here because it’s a great overview of some of the exam techniques that can be useful (a consideration for those of us completing SAFE exams); challenges in identifying STIs and other GYN issues in this population; and potential red flags for physical and sexual abuse. The slides are accompanied by detailed notes, making the whole thing a great educational tool.
Well, I finally did something I should have done long ago: went through all of the posted webinars and provided archive info for them where available. This means that any live event I have posted should have a link to the PDF presentation, audio, video and/or supplemental materials except:
- If the event hasn’t actually occurred yet
- The information was posted in a separate entry OR
- I couldn’t find archived materials
Click on the Webinar link on the right side of the page under Categories to pull up all of the webinars that have been posted here. All updated information is in red. You can now find archived materials for some of the most popular posts I’ve put up, including the recent Injury & Terminology session, Death Investigation, and Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in Tribal Communities.
The good folks over at the Center of Excellence in Elder Abuse and Neglect have posted the presentations from this year’s ASA‐NCOA Aging in America Conference 2009, Elder Abuse sessions (PDF) on their site. It’s an unbelievable resource, with 16 different sets of slides on a wide variety of elder abuse issues, several health care related. I seriously recommend you check this out if your practice includes the elderly. It’s not only useful for clinicians, but it would be a valuable asset for many of multidisciplinary team members, as well.
UPDATE: Broken link is now fixed.
Medscape has a new slideshow available: Recognizing Child Abuse. It’s free to access (registration is required, also free) and would make another fantastic continuing education presentation for your team. The slideshow includes multiple annotated injury photos, films and recent stats, but it’s still brief enough to review during a staff meeting or inservice (there are 25 slides total). Child sexual abuse is also addressed, albeit briefly.
It’s certainly not the most comprehensive presentation on the topic, but it’s a nice overview. I’ll look forward to hearing your opinions…
The Children’s Hospital of Denver has an archived grand rounds presentation on caring for LGBT patients and their families in pediatric and adolescent medicine that was initially presented last November. It’s a 40 minute video with Powerpoint slides, and I particularly like that it’s focused on peds, since that subset of this specialized patient population is even less well represented in the online continuing education offerings.
Sadly, they don’t provide CEs for video archives, so no love there.
The Ash Institute at Harvard’s Kennedy School has an amazing series of “expert chats” with topics near and dear to my heart. One of the archived chats is Sexual Assault on College Campuses, and it features some incredibly knowledgeable speakers, including Dr. David Lisak and Marnie Shiels from the Office on Violence Against Women. You must register with the site to access the archived materials, which is free.
The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education has a series of grand round webinars on mental health issues for rural and frontier healthcare providers. CEUs & CMEs are available 1 year from the time of the original offerings, so all of these have CEs in place through at least November, ’09 (and 3 of the 4 well into Spring 2010). Access is free of charge; all are approximately 90 minutes long.
HRSA’s Maternal Child Health Bureau has an archived webinar on the intersection of HIV/AIDS and violence against women, originally presented last spring. You can view the offering with slides and audio, or download an MP3 to listen to on your iPod later on. There are also transcripts of the session available. These guys put on a great array of webinars–a lot of topics not being presented frequently that are truly clinically relevant. Now if they would just start offering CEs with them…
