Letter from the Web Editor - Brenda Jean Mears, MD, FAAP
February 27, 2013
Good day to all of you,
You may reach our latest section page update from your “My AAP” page.
The section election begins March 1. Don’t forget to check our candidates’ biographies and vote.
Many movie trailers, documentaries, television programs and even some complete movies are available on such sites as YouTube. On the history, literature, media and the arts page, there is now a separate subsection for television programs and shorter programs. The programs are alphabetized by the name of the overall program first, then the name of the episode. For instance the Bonanza episode “The Quality of Mercy” is under Bonanza and then Quality of Mercy. I will add programs as I run across them but if any of you have ones with which you are familiar, let me know and I will add them.
The newsletter archive includes newsletters from Spring of 2006 to Fall of 2012. Our Pediatrics in Review articles and AAP Grand Rounds articles are linked on the website.
There are updates and some proofreading corrections in many of the sections including the outside organization policy statements, current articles, classic articles and all 3 book pages. We are continuing to add links in the External Organizations Policy Statements and Other Reports list.
Virtual Mentor has had issues recently on hospital: business and public service, improving allocation of limited resources, and ethical issues in evidence-based medicine.
You will find in the meetings section information on various meetings for which I have received information.
These projects are for your interest and use. Most of the information included is not endorsed by the AAP or by me personally. The news articles and blog links in particular, may sometimes have inaccurate information. The goal is to spark ideas, discussions and assist you in anticipating what your families may wish to discuss.
Since it is impossible to follow everything published, what is included is, of necessity, idiosyncratic. If you see something we have overlooked please send it on. I will try to include in the next update. We are specifically looking to increase the number of bioethical studies, bioethical novels and useful policies from other organizations in our reference lists.
Of course, any member may use the LISTSERV® e-mail list at Bioethics@listserv.aap.org. If you are not receiving at least occasional messages from me let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My thanks to Anjie Emanuel, Michael Chorvat, the members of the Section Executive Committee and all the others who provide assistance in the ongoing projects of our Section.
Brenda Jean Mears
