Welcome to the next experiment in TAFP member interaction, the Texas Family Docs blog. In a post-health-reform era of rapid changes to the practice of medicine, your Academy hopes to use this space to delve into the topics most important to the family physicians of Texas.
This means explaining measures of health reform as they are implemented and tweaked, but also providing an insider’s look into Texas health policy, sharing practice management tips for all settings, highlighting tools and resources to improve your practice experience, sharing media links from the most influential medical journals, and more.
This is where you come in. The entire project began because you asked us to bridge these tough topics in a highly active forum. We want this to be a space where members contribute to the discussion. Comment on our posts or ask us how to submit your own. Share the most pressing issues facing your practice, a story from your medical training, or a “best practice” pearl that has helped you along the way. The possibilities are endless.
As the specialty of family medicine moves forward, we hope you’ll join us. Questions? Want to become a contributing author? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
