Quote from Emergent
Many of our patients consult with Dr Google. So do I. He scares the daylights out of me sometimes.
How is Dr Google helping or hurting healthcare today?
Dr Google is here to stay. We can complain about it, or we can use it. We can wish he would retire, but its not gonna happen.
There are some great sites out there, and I try to direct people to them. Mayo clinic is a good example. Most of the government sites- CDC, NIH,
I google stuff all the time. Everybody does.
I recently was tasked with showing a couple of new nurses how to use a Morgan lens. As I am a relatively senior ER nurse, this should be easy, except for the fact that I don't know how to do it. I have only done it once. Every other time, I have said "Anybody any good with the Morgan lens?" and let them do it.
So, I modified "see one, do one, teach one". I went straight to "Google one, teach one."
It went OK.
