Moving through Suffering and Towards Resilience: The Compassionate Care Initiative, with Tim Cunningham
I caught up with Prof Tim Cunningham who will be presenting a keynote at the Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa's annual meeting in October 2017. Tim is an emergency trauma nurse specialising in paediatric care. He is also the director of the Compassionate Care Initiative at the University of Virginia (USA) and Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia School of Nursing and Department of Drama
I asked Tim a few questions about his upcoming keynote.
We are often asked if AfJEM is a good place to publish. The best answer is that it depends on your target audience. In fact, identifying your target audience and then aiming to publish in a journal with the best impact in that group should be a key consideration for any publication. This is a vital consideration to ensure that your paper reaches the audience that will benefit most from the content.
Every quarter, the African Journal of Emergency Medicine, in partnership with several other regional emergency medicine journals, publishes abstracts from each respective journal. Abstracts are not necessarily linked to open access papers, but where green access is available it is linked to. Click 'Read More' to read further.
