Dear Members,

Letter from the President: CIR is coming this Saturday, 2 February 2019

Dear colleagues,

Happy New Year, MLK Day, and Lunar New Year!

Why Idaho? A Resident's Perspective

I chose the Idaho Advanced Clinician Track for myriad reasons, principally because it places me in a premier position to be prepared for my intended future employment. I practiced and learned in the heart of a major city, working the most difficult of cases with the support of a superb academic facility. Not only did I gain experience in an urban center and the challenges it posed, I then moved to a much smaller city, now work in community hospitals, and am acquiring experience in practices such as telepsychiatry and integrated care.

Letter from the President

Dear colleagues,

Winter is coming. In a few weeks the season will again change and UWHA contract negotiations will begin. The literal and figurative meanings of the statement adequately capture the brevity of this time.

Tools for our MDs: Medication Reconciliation Tutorial

In response to patient harm events resulting from medication reconciliation errors, a very short tutorial has been developed for all providers describing resources available in ORCA as well as other strategies for efficiently obtaining and documenting an accurate home medication list upon a patient’s hospital admission.
