This week’s episode of Insights in Nursing kicked off with a great discussion about critical understanding of research published by various sources. The topic came from a great article about flawed meta-analysis in a research study by Amy Romano of the Science and Sensibility blog (ScienceandSensibility.org).
We followed that up with a look at EMS blogger, Chris Kaiser’s article on EMTs and Paramedics as “Sporks” of the medical community, in which he referred to nurses as the perfect and natural assistants to doctors. Chris wasn’t being malicious but was repeating a common misconception about nurses that seems to continue to exist despite all that nursing has accomplished over the years.
What is it about blogging that scares employers so much and what can we do to ensure that health care bloggers act responsibly when they discuss medical and nursing topics?
Join our panel of special nursing guests as we delve in to this topic. Kim McAllister from the Emergiblog, Amy Romano from Science and Sensibility, Paul Bond from Emergency Nursing Today, Terri Polick from Nurse Ratched’s Place and Jamie Davis of the Nursing Show.
