To make up for my lack of recent updates I will try and squeeze a few interesting items into one sensational blog post!
- According to an entirely unreferenced article by Dr. Jaan Sidorov - Generation Y/Millienial physicians will be less concerned with issues of rank than their predecessors and will be more flexible by allowing other health care professionals to adopt and utilize skills sets once firmly entrenched within the medical profession.
- I recommend checking out www.ifitweremyhome.com, which compares any (or almost any) two countries to one another based on a number of different criteria commonly linked to quality of life and sustainability such as energy usage, birth rate, earning power, employment, cost of health care etc. and provides the results to you in a neat, simple. graphic. You can then upload your selected comparison to your Facebook page or Twitter feed.
- If you are interested in health care and the arts and how the two meet and mingle, you should check out the open access, peer-reviewed journal The International Journal of the Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice. Access to full-text articles is free (that's what open access means :) The latest issue has an article about using literature to help medical students better understand issues of social justice and public heath.
