Grand Rounds from the EMS Blogosphere: September 2010

Grand Rounds from the EMS Blogosphere provides updates from many of the popular EMS blogs on the Web.

Okay, so do you think you want to start an EMS blog? If your answer is yes, then go ahead and get started. The great thing about blogging is that you can pretty much write about anything you want. My tip this month is to try to concentrate on one major topic. Whether you are looking to write an educational blog or a journal-like blog, choosing a topic to focus on will help you get the ball rolling. As you write your blog, it is imperative to make sure that you never provide any information that could construed as a HIPAA violation. A good disclaimer statement on your blog, and a look at the Healthcare Blogger Code of Ethics, will assist you in avoiding any job-threatening allegations.
