RNchat Transcript – December 29, 2009

My friend Ellen Richter was very kind enough to answer my request for a moderator of RNchat held last night. One of my original goals in founding RNchat was to take advantage of the incredibly diverse range of nursing experiences and have several moderators. The benefits are obvious: every nurse has unique perspectives and experiences and opinions and having different moderators enriches the kinds of conversations we can have on these Twitter chats. Furthermore, I would eventually like to invite doctors and patients and patient activists and many others to moderate these chats. And I don’t want to exclude LPNs or CNAs (RNchat is just a shorter username than NurseChat).Please let me know if you’re interested in moderating – either email Info@RNchat.org or hit me on Twitter: @PhilBaumann.Below is a SlideShare of today’s #RNchat, organized in chronological order (from beginning of chat to sometime just after). Today’s topics were:

  1. Robo-nurses.
  2. Using software to deliver care using algorithms & decision-trees.
  3. Malpractice Litigation

You can download the file or view it in Full Screen mode as a slide show:
