Welcome to the Show

Welcome to this week's episode of the Nursing Show, I'm your host Jamie Davis and I'd like to welcome all of you to this week's program. I'm looking forward to this week's episode including a look at a news item on simple nursing interventions improving outcomes for chemotherapy patients. I'll also be talking about ways you can direct your patients to high quality online health care information resources. That's coming up right after this week's nursing news items.

Tip of the Week - Internet Health Resources
In this week's tip of the week, I will be looking at that final news item on patients using the internet to self diagnose health problems. This is a growing problem and, as that article points out, telling them to "just say no" is not an option. We need to provide our patients lists of credible online resources so they get good information about their problems. I've put together a list of resources I use and recommend here for the tip this week.
