Grand Rounds 4.48 at Six Until Me
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the blog Six Until Me, you should take the time to check it out. Not only is the author, Kerri, a gifted writer, she brings something a bit unique to the world of blogging, a patient’s perspective on diabetes.
I have not one, but two friends who use insulin pumps. One just happens to be a newly graduated pharmacist. I thought both them and Kerri yesterday whilst discussing back pain with a patient who also uses a pump. It constantly amazes me how other bits and pieces of my life, like watching J9 (the new pharmacist!) change her pump and patiently teach me while she did it, roll into my world as a nurse and as an NP. Because I could talk to this patient about her pump, she felt more comfortable with me helping her with her other medical problems. Instant credibility.
So, Kerri, thanks for your blog and great job with hosting Grand Rounds this week and including me!
J9—thanks for teaching me. I miss you btw.
UPDATE: My world constantly amazes me. Just saw another young patient on a pump, talked to her about online resources and gave her the address to Six Until Me. How cool is that!
