I’m hustling today, big time. The weekend was a busy one, with my kiddo heading back to school and deadlines closing in. So a short list for you today, but still interesting. Here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
In light of last week’s post on my observations from court and the recent activity on a couple of the listservs to which I belong, I thought I would expand a bit on the issue of making changes to your practice. I find that people float a lot of ideas out there and some folks are awfully quick to up and make changes based on what they read without necessarily having much evidence to do so (especially when it’s a bright and shiny new toy or a well-known name attached to a particular idea). But the thing is, when you are trying to provide the best possible care to patients AND you will need to be able to explain and defend the clinical decisions you make with those patients in court from time to time, there needs to be actual evidence to support changes you ultimately make to your practice.
I get *a lot* of questions about funding. It comes up to one extent or another anytime a group of medical folks are together, and it most definitely comes up when we talk about sustainability (although if we’re having that conversation, hopefully we’re talking about more than just money). There is a lot of good information out there about potential funding. For example, VAWnet has a bi-weekly funding alert to which you can subscribe.
