In light of World Elder Abuse Day here’s another great clinical resource. This one is a brief (less than 10 minute) slide presentation (narrated), Red Flags of Elder Abuse: History and Interview by Dr. Laura Mosqueda from the National Center on Elder Abuse at UC Irvine. Note that you must register with QuantiaMD to access [...]
First off, thanks for the lovely comments and emails from last week’s post. I heart FHO readers in a big way. Secondly, I know it’s not Monday where most of you are, but it is Monday here (albeit really, really early on Monday here). So since I’m awake, how about a run down of what [...]

It’s a very short piece (under 7 minutes), and while this isn’t the most electric talk I’ve heard from the folks at TED, the content [...]

I’m such a big fan of science–but of course, you know this. I will always post resources and tools that are grounded in solid science. That is, science that’s been shown to be valid and reliable. Science I cite when I teach and when I testify.
A reader asked me if I had anything on drug endangered children that could be used for staff training. As it so happens, I do: the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (whose healthcare protocols I’ve mentioned before here) has many archived webinars on this topic that are geared toward both law enforcement and medical audiences:
The California HIV/STD Prevention Training Center has several online offerings that would be useful–particularly for new clinicians who need to shore up on basics, including the CDC Guidelines. There are online courses, archived webinars and podcasts to choose from, so it’s worth checking out the site. Take note–one of them is a video (15 minutes [...]
I’ve featured Ed Gavagan on this site before, but this time, I have a video of his talk about survival, filmed here in DC at the 2012 TEDMED gathering. The last minute is really something.
