Grand Rounds and Polls

Susan at Rickety Contrivances of Doing Good put up this week's Grand Rounds. It is an interesting edition and it's subject is Narrative Medicine.

Pioneered by Rita Charon, an internist and professor at Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons, Narrative Medicine trains doctors and other caregivers to use careful listening and reflective writing to forge deeper connections with their
patients, resulting in better care.

Susan included my post on helping people with social anxiety in the first cut. Many thanks, Susan!

Go check the whole story. It sounds very interesting:


Second news is that I put up a new poll with questions on what are you using to help with your social anxiety. I think we are all curious what percentage of us uses medication vs. what else is used. I will leave this poll up through the whole month of September.

That’s an interesting post over at Rickity Contrivances; she has some great links too. I’ve never heard of narrative medicine before. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, and I’m interested to see the results of your poll. Personally, I’ve found blogging to be enormously helpful.
