My hunch is you are falling into one of two categories professionally right now–either ridiculously busy as you try and manage the clinical fallout that is the reality of the pandemic (I see you ED and critical care folks, and all you who are floating right now to lend a hand), or (my situation) eerily at a standstill as much of the work has fallen off the calendar and you are, for the time being, grounded. I am fortunate that my consulting firm has a diverse portfolio that includes a substantial amount of policy and writing work that I am able to do remotely, so for the time being, that will be where my focus lies. This also allows for some catch up with reading, so, as scheduled, it’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly romp through the newly released peer-reviewed literature. If things are slower for you, perhaps you’ll be able to catch up on some reading, as well. You’ll notice there’s more this month, and for those of you who include elder abuse among your areas of concentration, you’re particularly in luck–there was quite a bit this month on that subject.
Here’s hoping this finds you in good health; that those of you with school aged-children are figuring this out as schools are closed but work continues; that acts of kindness aren’t scarce in these uncertain times; and that the world resumes some sense of normalcy sooner rather than later. Stay well everyone.
