Welcome to the latest version of Change of Shift, the nursing blog carnival!

Lots of topics this week: H1N1 is on a lot of minds these days, there are a couple of posts for new grads and it looks like one particular blogger is going to have to re-evaluate her opinion on a certain Showtime show (cough!).

……………………………

Dr Val presents us with this informative interview: Can You Name The 10 Vaccines That Adults May Need?



Have you been checking out Dr Rob’s podcast, House Call Doctor? If not, here’s a good one to start with: How to Find a Good Primary Care Doctor, Episode 16: September 30, 2009.

It would be nice if there was find your dream doctor dot com that worked a lot like the match-making sites you see advertised all over the place. But despite the fact that there isn’t such a website, you can use some of their principles to narrow down your search. …….

Dr. Joshua Swimmer who goes by kidneynotes on twitter, ask this

Did I miss anything on this list of kidney diseases? http://ping.fm/n4rso

I don’t think it did. It’s an impressive list with links to more information on each disease. Check it out. Maybe bookmark it.

H/T to Dr Charles for the link to an exhibit entitled Dialogues with Darwin held at the American Philosophical Society Museum:   “amazingly good online museum tour in which you can get the same virtual experience as seeing the originals.”

I would LOVE to see and touch this piece of cloth on exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History.

A spectacular and extremely rare textile, woven from golden-colored silk thread produced by more than one million spiders in Madagascar, goes on display Wednesday, September 23 in the Museum's Grand Gallery. This magnificent contemporary textile, measuring 11 feet by 4 feet, took four years to make using a painstaking technique developed more than 100 years ago.
