Recap Review, August 24 Edition

OK so I’m just a tad bit late on this week’s Recap Review, after a busy weekend at the community fair where my girls each gathered up ribbons for their baking creations (first and a second:) !).  Nevertheless, late is always better than never, right?  At least for the good stuff.

Week In Review, August 24, 2009

  • To kick off our last week of reviews, we traveled virtually all the way over to South Africa where the docs there are giving us a real-world view of the real people and some of the politics behind the medical gown.  For a new appreciation of the other side of medicine, stop in at All Scrubbed Up.
  • Next we met a Mom and yoga instructor who is working hard to maintain the two loves of her life, her practice of yoga and her family.  There’s a lot to be learned about joy in its many forms and maintaining a centered life of balance at A Yoga Mama Is A Rama Mama.
  • Next we learned some excellent tips, tricks, recipes, and more from a man who definitely knows his way around the kitchen. Share in Chef Tom’s passion for food and his excellent collection of recipes and ‘copycat’ recipes at Chef Tom Cooks.
  • I’m very happy to have this blog fall into today’s recap, as it also happens to be my 13th wedding anniversary!  Ronnie and Lamar are working hard to deliver real-world examples, discussion, and advice for married couples and families, covering all the good, the bad, and the ugly,  and helping readers as they work through it all, for better or worse, at Black and Married With Children.

That rounds out our blog reviews for the past week.  Check out more from the week before at the previous week’s Recap Review, and stay tuned as there’ll be somthing new coming right along in short order!

The People Behind The Medicine

All Scrubbed Up

As patients in need, we tend to revere our doctors; and in so doing, we tend to forget that our doctors are people, too. People, that is, with opinions and personalities, frustrations, angers, and even senses of humor. That is the side of the profession that this blog is aiming to bring to light—the humanity of the medical profession.

All Scrubbed Up – Why You Should Go

All Scrubbed up is the team effort of one (understandably anonymous) doctor (SA Doc) in South Africa and IT expert Andy Hadfield. Their description of the blog is probably the best summation of what it is:

“What’s under the gown in the South African Medical Fraternity? Doctors, Surgeons, Practices, Hospitals and the funny, sometimes controversial stories that go with them.”

This blog is a behind-the-scenes look at the humor and controversy that is life in the medical profession. Of course, opinions expressed are those of these two contributors and any guests they might invite into the blog, but they do give a very good idea of what many doctors might be thinking or feeling in regards to the humorous stories and controversies that surround the practice of medicine and society in general. Those are opinions that many might be sharing, and worth following for a comrade in opinion arms (although if you don’t like strong, unwavering, truthful, in-your-face opinions you’ll probably not like this blog).

And by the way—did I mention humor? Because there are lots of medical funnies here, from the regular Old Time Medicine posts to jokes and cartoons and beyond. Along with the funny there are also serious posts, though, of either commentary or useful facts and resources for the public and the medical community.

Summing Up All Scrubbed Up

All in all All Scrubbed Up is puts a very human face on life as a doctor, and all the trials and triumphs that brings. It might just help you to connect a little better with the real people behind the medical masks that you entrust your care to.
