Dr Dork has been a mite preoccupied the last week, hence the scarcity of output.
Rather belatedly, he would like to mention that Change of Shift, the nursing blog carnival, is up at Emergiblog...and has been for a few days. Apologies, Kim.
Jumping the gun, conversely, Grand Rounds will be up later today at Envisioning 2.0. It is early evening here in Oz, and where the author of Envisioning, Fard Johnmar, is based, it is probably not Tuesday for some time yet.
Another planned themed topic this week, unfortunately, regarding aspects of the confusing American insurance systems. Well, confusing to Dr Dork, at least. Which isn't a particularly unusual event.
There are a few regular Grand Round type collections akin to the seminal creation of Nick Genes that Dr Dork would like to bring to the attention of any readers unaware of them.
Most tend to focus on the relevant area of expertise, but promote those from other disciplines contributing as well.
Apart from the above two, Dr Dork has so far become particularly aware of:
The Pediatric Grand Rounds, which Clark Bartram of Unintelligent Design established, are hosted often at his site - as per this week - but also at various other locations, as per the archive. These are published every second Sunday.
The Radiology Grand Rounds are generally produced by Dr Sumer at Sumer's Radiology Site, although there are guest hosts, and he has set up a handy archive as well. These come out on the last Sunday of each month.
Dr John Crippen publishes The Brit Meds, a collection of British medically related writing, each Sunday at NHSBlogDoc.
Those of us in the penal colony feel unloved, John. As perhaps do our colleagues from the religious pilgrimage.
Dr Dork is just kidding. He is sure there will be an Australian version, once some critical mass is reached.
(insert own joke about slothful Australians here)
Grand Rounds is published at various locations, each Tuesday, and there is a handy archive and schedule at Blogborygmi.
Change of Shift is generally published at Emergiblog, each Thursday.
Dr Dork has spent an embarrassing length of time today trying to organise some form of Grand Round linking omnibus to tack up in his sidebar, to no avail, and much vexation.
Dr Dork recommends perhaps bookmarking some or all of the above compendiums.
He also recommends unplugging your monitor before attempting to throw it through a window.
