ACEP in Need of Doc Blog Content

ACEP in Need of Doc Blog Content


POSTED IN: Fall 2016,

ACEP is in need of “Doc Blog” content for their Emergency Care For You site. They are looking for articles on basic consumer-health information and have provided suggested topics below.

If you have other ideas, they are open to that as well. Articles should be 400-500 words in length, created in a Word document, and have some element of personal experience (mainly a patient or patients you treated once and how that experience can help others, etc.). Please reach out to Michael Baldyga, mbaldyga@acep.org, prior to writing content to verify there is still content needed for that topic.

Suggested Topics:

What all parents (medically) need to know when sending kids off to live at college

Food poisoning

Lyme disease

A patient experience anaphylaxis

Injuries from being hit by a car

Sickle Cell – what is it?  What are the symptoms? Treatments?

Importance of giving blood

Injuries at the playground

Poisonous Snakebites

Electrical shock injuries

An example of a patient who waited too long before going to the ED
