Traditional (boring) anatomical pose (Watson) vs sassy anatomical pose (Cohen)



A hand on the hip, bent knee, and lateral pelvic tilt deviate from the front and center standard diagram. The fun I have exploring our collection.

AHRQ presentation re: Health IT and patient outcomes

If the most recent Woods Hole training wasn’t enough, AHRQ had a webinar today focusing on Health IT and patient outcomes, particularly for vulnerable and disadvantaged populations.

The webinar consisted of 3 researchers presenting different projects  ranging from immunization alerts for children, diabetes self-care management, and usability of personal health records by adults with intellectual disabilities and their care givers.  For 1.5 talk with questions, this delved into the meat of the research rather quickly and gave some good framework and ideas about future improvements or project expansions.

Otherwise, AHRQ will be posting a recording of the session.
