Clinical Connections is an internal publication distributed from the Medical Director's Office to attendings, residents, students and credentialed providers electronically on a bi-weekly basis.
The purpose of this publication is to serve as a central source for internal communication to educate MUSC Health medical staff with valuable, top-line information, news, announcements, initiatives and positive outcomes. We are dedicated to maintain the high quality standards of MUSC and provide timely communication of issues important to our staff.
Patrick Cawley, M.D., chief medical officer and executive medical director, sponsors this newsletter from the Medical Director's Office.
"We have a lot to say and our informational piece allows us to utilize an effective medium to communicate and disseminate key information to our core audience and influencer groups."
Our regular columns include a letter from Cawley, CDI Corner, Risk Management and MUSCare Innovations. We also include short features about patient safety, Joint Commission readiness, and centerwide projects such as Epic.
We welcome feedback on ways to improve our communication dissemination as well as invite you to contribute a story for an upcoming installment. Deadline to submit a story is a week before the release date.
The deadline dates through the year include: July 5, July 19, Aug. 2, Aug. 16, Aug. 30, Sept. 13, Sept. 27, Oct. 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Nov. 22, Dec. 6 and Dec. 20.
