Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. This is exactly the kind of feedback I need. You have really hit the nail on the head, and I guess you could say that I haven't yet found my "voice" in this blog. And, since it is my very first blog, it is a little hard to know how to reach the people who might be most interested in what is going on here. The answer to your question is that I am actually hoping to reach parents, general folks in the community who have an interest in child health, as well as colleagues. It would be wonderful for other docs to be able to see comments that parents and others might leave that could help guide us in the way we deliver care.
Do you think I am trying to do too much?
I was very careful in the beginning (one week ago) to use only non-technical terms, but then I started to feel that it might not be sounding exactly right. You know, its kind of funny, this is exactly one of the problems we have when we do patient and family centered rounds. How to get our students and physicians to talk to families in a way then can understand, without all the technical jargon. Thanks for pointing this out. I hope you will visit again.
