NORWALK, Conn., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net, a leading online community for women's health professionals, features physician-written blogs that address the clinical, practical, and ethical challenges of practicing obstetrics and gynecology in today's health care environment.
The content featured on OBGYN.net is designed to keep women's health care professionals apprised of current studies, guidelines, and best practices. However, studies and guidelines generally don't address the more personal or ethical challenges of being a dedicated health care provider. The blogs, however, offer a window into the experiences and challenges of other OB/GYNs and cover a variety of subjects, such as informed consent, the morcellation debate, and work-life balance.
Some recent highlights include:
- Diversification Key to Addressing Professional Boredom: This blog from Deborah Ottenheimer, MD, details how she pulled herself out of a professional rut and became re-inspired after 20 years of clinical practice.
- What's an Ethical Response to Home Birth: Our ethical OB/GYN Paul Burcher, MD, PhD, considers the professional obligations of obstetricians in a hospital setting to women who opt for a home birth.
- The Price of Private Practice: Deborah Ottenheimer, MD, evaluates her move from a hospital staff physician to a solo private practice, a decision that came with significant professional costs.
