This is my last full week in the office before vacation, save some work with the Army JAGs here in town, so I am glued to my to-do list. That being said I did manage to get some reading done this weekend (although the pull of 70+ degree weather and sunshine was irresistible), but much of it had to do with the terrible tragedy in Kansas yesterday. I know it will be part of our conversation around the Seder table tonight as we celebrate Passover, keeping the victims and their families and community in our prayers. A happy Pesach to all of you who observe. Click tghrough to check out what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:

I’m thinking quite a bit today about Evidence-Based Practice and figured I’d share a resource. We throw this word around a lot, but I find in talking with many clinicians that there is a fundamental difficulty in describing exactly what that means and how to ensure that your practice is indeed evidence-based. The American Journal of Nursing has a pretty comprehensive series on this subject, Evidence-Based Practice, Step by Step. The collection has 12 articles, and 10 are free full-text. There are also 4 CE opportunities attached to the collection (for a fee). Hopefully that will give folks some resources to look more closely at their own practices, if needed.

{Don’t forget: we also have the Understanding Research clinical guide to help with this topic, as well}

NSVRC is hosting a webinar with featured speaker, Dr. Megan Greeson on April 15th from 3-4:30 pm ET. The topic will be Rural SARTs: What the Research Tells Us. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Greeson in the past–I highly encourage attending. More details after the jump:

Lots of reading this weekend, so it’s a good list. But before I put it up, a quick reminder (again), since I got a nastygram from a reader who disliked one of the articles I posted last week: just because I read it doesn’t mean I agree with it. Everything on this site, be it articles in posts like this or webinar offerings or full-length reports, should be read with the understanding that, unless it is accompanied by a clear endorsement from me, is not actually an endorsement. This site is for information sharing. FHO readers are a smart bunch–you guys will decide what is relevant and what is valid for your own practices. That being said, here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
