2022 update

last updated May 1st, 2022.

On January 22nd, 2022, we transitioned The Hospital Handbook Project (HHP) as a program to a 501c3. So, now all direct donations to the HHP are eligible for tax-deductible status. For details, please see the disclaimer quote in italics below. To make a direct donation, go to this page.

Because we've been very low on funding for running the Issues in Hospital-based Practice resource, we had to pause for a few months and focus just on fundraising and transition work.

However, we are starting up the Issues sessions again in the summer of 2022. Please see the list of scheduled and potential (TBD) presentation topics and dates below.

********************************************************************************************************************************************

"Issues in Hospital-based Practice" is the webinar presentation series I have worked to get off the ground for the past several years.

"Issues in Hospital-based Practice" is a webinar presentation series we have not yet had full funding for (2020 - 2022). As of January 2022 we became part of a 501c3 nonprofit and are working toward funding of this resource, the Issues online resource. So, if you love this idea, please encourage others to sign up and support this resource. The webinar series is one of the most expensive outgoing costs of the resources we have created at the Hospital Handbook Project.

To be successful in running the Issues series for 2022 and beyond, we need to cover our basic operating costs. Please see this webpage for current information on our "basic operating costs" fundraiser, progress so far, and how you can support it.

Your subscription to this online resource helps us toward our funding goal.

If your organization would like to sponsor The Hospital Handbook Project's work, learn more about that option here.

The community has identified a need for this as an ongoing series this year and in future years. So I hope to get this off the ground this year. And I can do that with your help.

What are the Issues in Hospital-based Practice Webinar Series and its Online Resource?

These are zoom-based interviews and webinar sessions with hospital and healthcare system-based acupuncturist colleagues. Each session focuses on an identified issue in the healthcare system setting, focusing on the acupuncturist community. However, as you can see in our current issues list, these issues are common for most providers in the healthcare system-based integrative health community.

Your support helps us cover the following outgoing costs of running this series.

In May 2022, the current outgoing cost estimate for hosting one session that is 50 minutes or less in time is $500. This includes the costs of hosting the live sessions (platform costs, tech et al), recording the session, running a multi-voice transcript, working with a video editor, hosting the recording, and creating a companion "Notes" document. This cost increases for sessions that go longer than 50 minutes.

Running a professional transcript helps us

  • Improve our communication with our video editor. The transcript gives us accurate timestamps and word tags near edits.
  • Create accurate captions for our recording when we can host it on our YouTube channel
  • Captions improve accessibility for the hearing impaired and for colleagues who are watching recordings with the audio turned off
  • Helps me when I am creating the companion "Notes" document.
    • This feature, the "Notes" document, is much requested by the community. It includes a summary of the most important points in the presentation or discussion, graphics related to the presentation, timestamps with a quick summary of a section, and a list of related resources with hyperlinks.
    • However, it is very time-consuming to create this document. Running a transcript with the recording saves me several hours and helps improve the accuracy of my time stamps.
    • Colleagues have noted that they find the timestamps with summaries in the "Notes" document helpful when they navigate a recording to find a favorite section or an otherwise obscure section they missed during the live session.

Working with a video editor helps us improve the recording:

  • Clean up issues in the recording, especially if there are multiple speakers at different locations.
  • Clean up sound issues. Edits out long pauses or tech issues that detract from the recording.
  • Evens out the sound for ease of listening
  • Adds intro and outro/ending fades and transitions to help it look more professional
  • Stitches together multiple recordings as needed. For example, if 20 minutes of the first part of the session was lost because of connection issues (bad storm, presenter needed to switch devices to improve sound or connection, etc.) with a presenter, we can request the presenter to record themselves presenting that section. Then the video editor can stitch that section together with the cleaner parts of the recording to create one connected recording of the session.
  • A full version of editing is necessary to be able to share recordings on our YouTube channel. Edited recordings may be shared on the YouTube channel for a limited time or a longer period, as determined by the director of The Hospital Handbook Project.

Caveat: We have not yet been able to cover our outgoing costs for the Issues in Hospital-based Practice series. So most of the recordings you have access to through this online module have not been edited by our video editor. And some sessions were available only live, and just have notes or slides of pdfs, but no recording. I've included "notes" and pdfs of slides when available. However, not all recordings are available because we have not had the funding to cover editing costs.

With your support and the support of organizational sponsors, we can work with a video editor for this series in the near future.

Current issues we covered in 2021 and earlier that are "bonus" access available for those who subscribe to this resource in 2022:

Current issues we may be able to cover in 2022 and into 2023 when this webinar series receives enough funding

  • See the updated list toward the beginning of this course description page.

We will cover as many identified topics as I have the resources to do so.

The webinar series is organized as a monthly presentation, with the potential for 10 recorded (with video editing) presentations in a year, with full funding early in the year. Each session will also have a companion pdf "quick notes" created.

If successful this year, we hope to continue this series in future years. 🎆
