Podcasts for Improvement

What podcasts do you listen to?

Podcasts, of course, are similar to radio shows, except that you can download them to your iPod or iPhone (or computer) and listen to them at any time.

Beginning from tomorrow, The Institute for Healthcare Improvement is offering free audio shows.

These will be ‘lively 60-minute discussions with international experts on the latest thinking and strategies to improve patient care. The program will be offered every other week, beginning May 7 with “Breaking the Cycle of Readmissions.”’

Although the programs are free, you need to enrol through a rather convoluted process at the IHI website
, and then list to them through the (free) webex software.
(I guess this makes them not true podcasts.)

Other IHI audio programs, including the’ Author in the Room’ series, are available by podcast, and perhaps the new programs will be added later.

    A weekly podcast looking at the top medical stories of the week for people who want to become informed participants in their own health care. With Elizabeth Tracey, director of electronic media for Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Rick Lange M.D., professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins and vice chairman of medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

    I recommend the POEM of the week podcast, which is not about poetry but rather “Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters”. The shows are short and in the form of a conversation between two academic family physicians in the USA. The topics are often relevant to Australian general practice.

    This selection is focussed on neurolinguistic programming but has some good topics about motivation, change management and leadership.

    My appeal to the real intelligentia of Telangana to use their good offices to stop this mindless destruction and violence. This kind of incidents will only defame the Telangana Agitation.
