SGNA 2003 UPDATE

eHEALTH IN GI PRACTICE: NEW DEVELOPMENTS & LEGAL ISSUES

Greetings to all SGNA members! I've just returned from the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, Inc. (SGNA) 30th Annual Course May 17-21, 2003,  in Atlanta, Georgia.  I've met some wonderful GI Nurses!!  Several of us had the opportunity to spend the day together during two sessions that I presented, "Legal Issues In Telephone Nursing" and "eHealth In GI Practice-New Developments & Legal Issues."

During the "eHealth In GI Practice-New Developments & Legal Issues" session I demonstrated how eHealth can be used in the GI setting.  I mentioned that I'd post some of the website links used during the presentation for you to share with your patients and with each other.  I encourage you to post on the bulletin board your comments and suggestions as well as some of your favorite websites and I'll add them to this list.  I've always liked the saying "The true measure of your education is not what you know, but how you share what you know with others."  Enjoy! Carol M. Stock JD, MN, RN

I look forward to seeing you in Dallas, Texas at the 31st Annual Course!  I am proposing several sessions, one on Telephone Nursing Issues, a large focus will be on pre and post telephone calls in light of HIPAA; another session on eHealth in GI Practice, and perhaps another all day session on Legal Issues In Telephone Nursing.  Let me know your thoughts via email at carolstock@seanet.com or you can post on the bulletin board at http://www.carolstock.com/board/tbb.html  

In the meantime, Carol M. Stock is available to speak at local, regional, national and international SGNA and other nursing meetings.  Contact Carol Stock at carolstock@seanet.com for more information.
