Three Reasons To Read the New Issue of Streamline
Perhaps this post’s title is a bit too boastful, but we couldn’t help it! We are proud to announce the launch our newest issue of Streamline, Migrant Clinicians Network’s quarterly clinical publication. We’ve enjoyed hearing the feedback from clinicians and health advocates so far, and we wanted to share the top three reasons why you, too, should dive into the pages of the fall issue of Streamline.
- Because the opioid epidemic has affected someone in your town. Our front page article explores how rural clinics are addressing the opioid epidemic through a new project called the Team-Based Opioid Management Project -- and it covers the most up-to-date resources you can access to address the problem in your own community.
- Because we all experience burnout. Clinicians are tasked with continuously recalibrating to strike a balance in their work and life responsibilities -- especially during the holidays. Hear how one health center has shifted its approach.
- Because exposure to pesticides during childhood can cause health concerns. Two articles in our Environmental and Occupational Health section cover events during which children are exposed to chemicals in the home -- from common over-the-counter products to combat lice, to commercially available insecticides for use inside the home.
After you’ve read those articles on hot-button issues, perhaps you’ll peruse the article on how a team of CHWs in Washington has improved the needs assessment process at their health center, or read up about the social determinants in adolescent health. The issue also has a summary of newly updated migrant clinician’s guides to federal policy, a profile of Dr. Selwyn Rogers, a surgeon hard at work on social justice issues, and an update on our newest comic book.
The current issue (not to mention years of back issues) is available online on our Streamline page. If you wish to receive Streamline in-print, email your snail-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. What’s your favorite Streamline article?
