We’ve been talking this week about testimony and about research, so let’s end the week with the interface of the two. Our selection for this week’s Full-Text Friday is an oldy, and perhaps not really that much of a goody. The reason I include it then? Because it exists in the peer-reviewed literature, and as […]

So I feel like I say this every month, but holy hell there’s some *awesome* stuff in the literature this month. How can you not get excited by some of the articles being published right now? (Don’t roll your eyes at me, people, I can totally see you.) Even the stuff that’s not 100% relevant […]

Well, my friends, I am heading out the door bright and early tomorrow for a week of work in the Pacific. I will be putting in some guaranteed long hours so posts next week may be spotty. Please note that if you send me requests or questions I may be a bit delayed in responding, […]

I’m hanging out at the Army JAG school for a few days, teaching and waiting to hear if I will actually be on the road 2 days or 2 weeks (I could get excited about either, but I’m definitely feeling the pull of being home with my spouse). I could be headed to Hawaii at […]

An unexpected week at home means serious immersion into curriculum writing and some work for the military. There really is nothing so amazing as finding out that your week of travel is now being covered by someone else (although I am missing the opportunity to cross off my 50th state by staying home). Knowing I’d […]

A reader sent me a question asking if I had anything concise and, more importantly, free on asphyxia versus the narrower topic of strangulation. Turns out I do. Medscape published an article on this very subject: Pathology of Asphyxial Death. Even if you’re not interested in the death investigation aspect of the article, there’s still […]

Greetings from sunny Naples, FL, where I have been immersed in family for the weekend. A couple pieces of business for this Monday. First, congratulations to Deb O’Hay who is the winner of our latest giveaway! Deb, please contact me with your address so we can get your book to you. Second, although I have […]

Medscape has a free (very) concise overview on Drugs of Abuse for clinicians that’s worth perusing. It’s in no way comprehensive, but it is a good way to familiarize yourself with some of the newer drugs you may be seeing in your practice, such as Molly and bath salts. Medscape requires registration to access the […]

I had a comment by a reader recently regarding trauma-informed care and kids, in which she mentioned that trauma and trauma-informed care isn’t just limited to abuse and violence. Agreed, and in light of that comment, I figured I’d present a CE offering (for nurses) that looks at the issues in broader terms–this one from […]

Time for this month’s Articles of Note, where we give you some of the latest published research from the peer reviewed journals. As always this is not an exhaustive list, just some of the eye catching stuff. For those of you working with the elder population, this is an especially good month for you.
