EMN Wins APEX,
Daniel Runde, MD, received a silver award for best regular column in the annual competition of the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors. The honor was given for his column, Reasonable Doubt. Dr. Runde's work always strikes a nerve and regularly garners the highest page views on our website. He has two exceptional skills: to bust myths that ultimately produce better patient care and a deft writing talent that blends research, no-nonsense advice, and humor to make his point. Read all of his columns at http://bit.ly/EMN-ReasonableDoubt. The ASHPE competition is the most prestigious in health care publishing. The organization is dedicated to fostering the highest ethical standards and excellence in health care publishing.
Sandra Scott Simons, MD, has received a Grand Award for Writing in the APEX 2018 Awards for Publication Excellence. The honor was for her article, "Enough!" that recounted how administration and employers try to censor her and other EPs: http://bit.ly/2NG94IA. Dr. Simons regularly exposes her vulnerabilities and empowers others to feel they're not alone. Despite losing her job, which she wrote about in August (http://bit.ly/EMN-ERGoddess), she still speaks her truths in these pages every month. APEX Grand Awards are given to only a small number of entries deemed outstanding in each category.
The Clarion Award was given to Larry Mellick, MD, for his EMN video-blog, “M2E Too! Mellick's Multimedia EduBlog.” The winning blog was “Davos Technique Gains Traction for Shoulder Dislocations,” which included a video about that technique and a second one called “Ten Ways to Reduce a Shoulder.” The blog and videos can be found at http://bit.ly/MellickShoulder. The prestigious Clarion Awards are given for excellence in communications by the Association for Women in Communications. Past winners include the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Sports Illustrated, and BBC Global News.
Emergency Medicine News also received a gold award for best commentary in the annual competition of the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE). Congratulations to James Roberts, MD, for his piece, “How to be a Real EP: Advice for New Graduates (and a Good Reminder for Seasoned EPs, Too,”) which was published in his popular column, InFocus.
