Helpful & Trusted Resources on Depression

Posted on: |

Courtesy of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/Middle Atlantic Region:

The recent death of Oscar-winning actor and comedian, Robin Williams, has brought attention to the challenges of those who suffer from depression.  It is estimated that 1 in 10 adults struggle with depression (Centers for Disease Control).  Depression can be debilitating to those who suffer, as well as affecting their family and friends.  It can also adversely affect outcomes of chronic and other health conditions.

Air Pollution & Nurses

Posted on: |

What does air pollution have to do with nursing practice and research?  Recently, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy highlighted the importance of nurses and environmental health in this blogpost: http://blog.epa.gov/epaconnect/2014/07/acting-on-climate-change-nurses/ which states, “ Nurses know that the easiest ailment to treat is one that never develops—and as trusted health professionals, our nation’s 3 million nurses can have a huge impact on their patients and communities.”

Come to a local workshop.  It’s free but register by September 5, 2014.

PULSE: Voices from the Heart of Medicine

Posted on: |

You might like reading PULSE, as I do.  It “reveals the personal side of health care through stories, poems, and images.”  The authors include many different types of healthcare providers, as well as patients.  Treat yourself to a brief weekly story, or a haiku.   Wise, warm, witty, sobering, sad, searing, happy, hopeful, loving, critical – it’s all here.  Join me in staying open to life in all of its complexity.
