At least one nurse manager is reading this article - I ILLed it for her a couple weeks ago. As a "brag" of my own, a few weeks ago some scientists I serve at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment asked permission to acknowledge Dana Abbey of the NN/LM Midcontinental Region; Karen Dahlen, a librarian turned consultant who is working to get library services for public health departments; and I, once their article is published. Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2013 13:43:10 -0600 From: Julie Stielstra <[log in to unmask]> Subject: a brag! A team comprising APNs, a pharmacist, a respiratory therapist, nurses, and physical therapists here developed a new early mobility protocol for our patients in the ICU and intermediate care units. They presented it at a critical care meeting, and an editor at Physical Therapy journal was so impressed he asked them to write it up as a formal article. They did. I did the lit searches and the manuscript prep for it, and the February 2013 issue of the journal (print copy!) landed on my desk today. There is much high-fiving, hugging, and delighted relief around here today! I was happy to bestow the print issue on the lead author to be eternally cherished. Drolet, A et al. "Move to Improve: the feasibility of using an early mobility protocol to increase ambulation in the intensive and intermediate care settings." Physical Therapy 93(2): 197-eoa, 2013 February. Yes, my name is buried in there among the acknowledgements... and I got a very nice bottle of Riesling out of it too. -- Julie Stielstra, MLS Manager, Knowledge Resource Library Central DuPage Hospital 25 N Winfield Rd Winfield, IL 60190 phone 630-933-4536 fax 630-933-4530 email jstielstra [ at ] gmail.com "Never...be mean in anything; never be false; never be cruel.
