There’s been an interesting surge in evangelist activity recently: I’ve been involved in several podcasts and webinars, all giving new life to the “gimme my data” movement. Here’s one that went live today on the HIMSS Learning Network. (It’s free but you may need to register.)[Read more…]
It ticks me off that the excellent site HealthNewsReview.org is going out of business due to lack of funding. More on that below. This independent website has for 12+ years been teaching us all how to watch out for BS in health news stories; they’re so important for informed health consumers that over on the e-patient blog I’ve written about them a dozen times.
Hi, this is Kristin, Dave’s assistant. If you’ve talked to Dave, you’ve probably talked to me. :-)
I’m happy to announce that Dave has again been named to a top social media list as an influencer worth following. This time it’s Health Tech magazine’s list. Not every list like this is great, but this one is – all top in their specialized area.
Quick link: the podcast is here; click “Listen to full episode”; my six minute segment starts around 21:00.
Longtime readers will remember when, after a keynote speech at Kingston General Hospital, I had an impromptu interview with Dr. Brian Goldman, the author of The Night Shift and The Secret Language of Doctors, both of which I found highly useful for understanding the lives and perspectives of clinicians.
The Night Shift is a fact-to-fiction account of one night of his life as an ER doctor in Toronto, with every case unpredictable and different; Secret Language is both a laugh riot (a successor to 1980’s famous House of God) and a real education about the things these highly trained people need to cope with in getting their jobs done.
He and I both did keynotes at that event. He asked me for an impromptu 20 minute interview for his CBC Radio program “White Coat, Black Art,” using his portable recording kit; we actually talked more than an hour(!) My post about it is here, including a lot of “footage” that didn’t make it on the air but which they posted online anyway.
