F.A. Davis Company on Davis Connect

This Week @ F.A. Davis, 4/20-4/26

Happy Monday, everybody. With a busy week ahead of us, I thought I’d start us off with some news from our trip to the AOTA Annual Conference. It was a great trip for all of us, and we’re already looking forward to next year’s conference (and the year after, when it will take place in F.A. Davis’s hometown of Philadelphia).

Health Care Link Roundup: Nursing workload stress, fadavis.com promotions, and more!

I’ll be honest; if I read everything that interested me, I’d never get off the Internet. To help us all avoid eyes blinded by monitor screens and atrophied muscles, here’s a roundup of the best health care links I found this week. Let me know if I missed anything in the comments!

HuffPost’s Health News posted some great articles on job satisfaction and productivity for nurses, and even more importantly, tips for nurses to handle their professional stress. I like the focus in both of these articles on health care systems allowing nurses the time and opportunity to administer compassionate care.

Prolific YouTube channel Crash Course is currently doing an excellent series on the fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology – this is a must-watch for any student beginning this course, thinking about a career in health sciences, or if you just need a refresher!

Struggling to stick to your New Year’s resolutions? In this recent article on The New York Times’ Well Blog, scientists try to find the connection between mindfulness and satisfaction with exercise.

And last but not least, this is the last week to use the promo code LOVE2REVIEW on FADavis.com for 20% off and free shipping on your entire order! We’re betting some of you have midterms on the horizon, and even more of you have started wondering how you’ll do on the NCLEX exam. Review early and often, and let us know if you’re looking for any specific tools! We’re here to help.

Links We Love: Healthcare Triage busting common cold myths

While we love YouTube for dancing cat videos, there are also plenty of channels out there devoted to education, particularly in our favorite healthcare fields. Lately we’ve been loving Healthcare Triage for their straightforward, information-packed videos on cold weather health myths, “cures” for the common cold that have been scientifically proven to be old wive’s tales, and the reasons you should get a flu shot featuring evidence provided by SCIENCE. In the Internet age of overwhelming “news” headlines where vitamins are essential for your health one day and evil the next day, it’s nice to see videos that explore these questions using documented studies.

Here are a few recent videos that have bolstered our preventative health confidence this winter:
