After a great week in Germany, it’s nice to be home, if only for a minute. I head to FLETC tomorrow, though thankfully just overnight. I confess I have been a bit remiss in staying current with my social media sites, but I did manage to take a peak or two since I’ve gotten back. […]

Conversational Competency

February 18, 2016 | 1 Comment

I loved this TED talk–conversation really is an art. A quote I love so much: “”Most of us don’t listen with the intent to understand. We listen with the intent to reply.” It’s all so good. Whether it’s teaching, mentoring, interviewing potential team members, or just going about the every day activities of your daily […]

It’s been a long week, right? How could I possibly resist? The Truth About Hymens And Sex "The Truth About Hymens And Sex" – Watch Adam Ruins Everything Tuesdays at 10pm, on truTV! Posted by CollegeHumor on Monday, December 7, 2015 {H/t Kim Nash}

Another Monday post, another weekend spent reading about a senseless mass shooting in this country. It’s beyond appalling, and when it targets a women’s health clinic it feels all the more personal. There’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been said here in countless other posts; what was an otherwise lovely and peaceful […]

Happy Forensic Nurses Week to all of us! It feels like a particularly busy one, what with multiple deadlines looming. I’d love to hear how folks are commemorating the week, though–especially if there are some creative celebrations in the works. Don’t have anything planned yet? There’s still time–IAFN has a planning guide (PDF) to help you […]

SART Playlist

November 5, 2015 | 1 Comment

I was perusing my usual sites, and I noticed that over at SAFEta Kim posted the SART playlist on NSVRC’s Youtube channel, which I thought I would also share over here. There’s some good stuff on it, particularly if you’re working out issues around protocol development, leadership issues, or untested kits. It has also has Rebecca Campbell’s 3-part […]

Fear of Public Speaking

November 3, 2015 | 5 Comments

I wanted to close the loop on an issue that we discussed during the session Sasha and I did on public speaking in Orlando. I mentioned the excellent Mark Twain quote, “There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. The nervous. 2. Liars.” Fear of public speaking is exceptionally common, but it cannot be an […]

I mentioned in Monday’s post that the Society for Women’s Health Research had a new campaign, #BeyondtheBruises. This is a campaign geared toward raising awareness about the healthcare impact of domestic violence, so it’s a great resource for sharing with other members of your provider community. Of note: there’s a 5ish minute video included as […]

If, like me, you didn’t have the opportunity to travel to LA last month for the National Sexual Assault Conference (and I’m beyond excited that in 2016 it will be in DC since I haven’t been in some time), click through for videos of some of the plenary sessions from the conference, including Valerie Jarrett, […]
