I got a much better sleep last night, thank you all!
I know I owe some of you emails and phone calls, but I'm a little busy today fiddling with this blog. For the next week or so something is going to be going on, so a few of my posts will be altered or vanish, to deter googlers. They will be back in about a week. I'm not going password protect or anything, this is just a temporary blip.
(And thank you to those of you who have de-lurked lately. I love knowing who's out there! Anyone else wants to, I'd love to hear from you too.)
Oh, and on a recent post, I discussed the whole idea that a minimum volume of patients is necessary for a Doctor to keep up their skills, which is why smaller rural hospitals are less likely to have specialists and several of you had some great comments. Well, lo and behold, what do I see in the paper this a.m.? This study, which talks about the issue in relation to NICUs. Turns out that practice makes perfect after all. And the best part? Doctors and midwives can usually figure out ahead of time which pregnant women are at highest risk for extremely early premature delivery and ensure they are directed to the best facility for them and their babies.
Speaking of midwifery, for those of you who want to learn more about midwifery in Ontario, and how it may vary from the other provinces and countries, The Star has a great article right here.
Have a lovely weekend, and get a good night's sleep, trust me, it can make you feel awesome!
