MCN Five on Friday


Summer is pouring its bounty into farmer’s markets across the country -- the days are getting hot. For clinicians, now is a great time to remind outdoor worker patients of the risk of heat stress and how to prevent it. How do you adjust your conversations with patients as the seasons wear on? Let us know on Facebook


  1. Karen, CEO, shared “Emerging from EHR Purgatory — Moving from Process to Outcomes,” a recent perspective piece in the New England Journal of Medicine.

  2. Candace, Specialist in Clinical Systems and Women’s Health, forwarded on an email: “A recent survey found that 88 percent of human trafficking survivors had some kind of contact with health care providers while being exploited; a new manual from Dignity Health can help organizations better identify and care for these individuals.”

  3. Ileana, Senior Advisor for Scientific and Strategic Planning, found this article on “social prescribing” in the UK interesting.

  4. Claire, Writer & Editor, shared last month’s CDC update on Zika antibodies: “New data suggest that Zika virus infection, similar to some other flavivirus infections, may result in Zika antibodies staying in the body for months after infection for some individuals. As a result, results of these tests may not be able to determine whether women were infected before or after they became pregnant.”

  5. Jillian, Director of Professional Development and Education, shared Hesperian’s sale -- 60% off all Spanish titles and 75% for orders of more than 10 books! Use code “salud” before June 15th.


Have a safe and healthy weekend.
