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).

Adolescent Witnesses to Family Violence

leave a comment »

I know I said I’d be posting on IAFN, but right now, all of my time here has been spent outside of sessions (staffing the NSVRC booth and in meetings). So I promise I will try to have some reports (other than that the turnout is amazing) soon. In the meantime, please note that JWI‘s National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse is sponsoring a teleconference November 5th on adolescent witnesses to family violence.

Articles of Note: October Edition

leave a comment »

Time once again for a run down of some of the new and noteworthy articles in the current literature. All of these are from the September/October issues (with the exception of one published in late August, but newly available electronically). As always, please keep in mind this in no way a comprehensive list; simply items that have caught my attention from a selection of peer-reviewed journals. Most links lead to PubMed abstracts (except for one free full-text article); from there you can choose what’s worth a.) paying for; b.) a pilgrimage to your nearest medical library;  or c.) downloading via the full-text access you possibly have at your disposal.

New CEU Offerings

leave a comment »

RN.org has several new CE offerings available that might be of interest to readers. It’s a flat $19.95 for unlimited CEs (in a 12 month period), and they offer some of the state mandated courses, as well as a general selection. That’s actually a pretty fantastic value for the money–something to consider springing for if you just don’t have the budget to send your team members to conferences this year.
