Global Nursing Alliance on COVID-19 (GNAC-19)

This week we are launching a new community on Sosido called the Global Nursing Alliance on COVID-19 (GNAC-19) which connects 7,500+ nurses from around the world to share research and experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

GNAC-19 is spearheaded and led by the Cancer Nurses Society of Australia and supported by generous industry partners BD, Ipsen and Mylan.

Members of GNAC-19 will have access to a members-only online forum to ask and answer questions of their global nursing colleagues, and will receive a weekly email digest with a summary of COVID-19 updates, research and activity in the online forum.

Nurses who already have an account on Sosido will be automatically added to GNAC-19. You will soon receive an email letting you know you have access to the GNAC-19 community; you will continue to receive only one Sosido email digest every Wednesday, including content from all of your Sosido communities.

Nurses who do not currently have an account on Sosido are invited to sign up for free here: GNAC-19 sign-up form. The community is available to current, practicing nurse clinicians and nurse researchers only; eligibility will be verified prior to account setup.

Thank you, health care professionals, for the work you are doing to help us all. If you have ideas on how we can support you, email us at contact@sosido.com

University of Calgary researchers analyze Sosido data to reveal scientific publication trends in the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine: Is research activity by clinical medical physicists in decline?

Researchers from the University of Calgary analyzed Sosido publication data over a 3-year period to reveal trends in academic output for CCPM-certified medical physicists.

They found that earlier-career medical physicists are publishing less than their more experienced colleagues. Do medical physicists increase academic output over the course of their career? Or is the newer generation of medical physicists simply publishing less?
