Weekly Wrap-Up & Giveaway Reminder

with 2 comments

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:

Next week I will be traveling to the surface of the sun Bakersfield, CA and will be gone most of the week, so posts may be a bit lighter, depending on how my time ends up being use while I’m there. But that’s next week. This week, over at the sustainability site:

Have a great weekend, everyone!

leave a comment »

Over the last couple weeks I’ve received several questions related to using Toluidine Blue dye in sexual assault medical-forensic exams, so I figured it was time to put together a clinical guide on the topic.

Guide: Literature Searches

with one comment

I was asked to do a post on literature searches, and since I’m always harping on the importance of keeping up with the science, I think it’s a good idea. There are many ways to access current literature, so I’ll outline a few here. But before we get to where, let’s take a minute to look at how.

Domestic Violence

The University of Louisville offers an online domestic violence course for physicians and nurses. Featuring Dr. William Smock, with whom many of you are familiar, the course consists of two videos and accompanying handouts. Participants can then opt to pay $25 to take the online test to receive CE credits. Total time to complete the course is estimated at approximately 3 hours.

Leadership Reader

leave a comment »

Today, for the 2nd installment of the Leadership Reader, I wanted to highlight a book about money. Many of you have talked with me about the challenges of funding your programs and the need to explore new ways to bring in operating dollars. Grants are always a good avenue to pursue, but they often come with serious restrictions on how the money can be used. Fundraising, on the otherhand, allows you much more freedom and flexibility in alotting those dollars to areas grants often don’t cover, like general operating funds or travel for education and conferences.
