Integrating Injury & Violence Prevention

leave a comment »

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).

Weekly Wrap-Up @ the Sustainability Blog

leave a comment »

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:

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!

Drug Endangered Children

leave a comment »

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.

Generic Plan B

with 2 comments

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.

Trafficking in Persons

leave a comment »

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.

Treating Women with Physical Disabilities

with 2 comments

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.

Updated Webinars

leave a comment »

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:

  1. If the event hasn’t actually occurred yet
  2. The information was posted in a separate entry OR
  3. 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.

You’re welcome:)
