Like last month, here’s this month’s update on travels, events, and articles (including a first for me!).
In my travels if you’re in the area and want to connect, contact me.
- Big news: my first article as lead author in a medical journal (right)! (In the world of medical journals, being listed as the first author is a big deal.) Open Visit Notes: A Patient’s Perspective and Expanding National Experience, in the Journal of Oncology Practice, with Jan Walker RN MBA. Thank you to the OpenNotes team for managing this!
- Do you use online symptom checkers? Go for it but be wise: Last Friday I was interviewed by the Boston Globe (see below) to comment on a new BMJ article. It was such a stimulating topic I wrote a much-mentioned post about it on e-patients.net, and I hope to be writing more
- Amazing Ginny’s amazing knee surgery: my post last week has been updated with amazing new videos of her moving around.
- That post has traveled: it got modified and posted on the much-read Glass Hospital blog, which was in turned picked up by the more-read MedPage Today update, and in turn caused a post about patient engagement on the Christ Church Charlotte nurse ministry blog.
