About the series

You’ve seen these situations before – you’ve probably described them as something to the effect of:

  • A pickle
  • Catch-22
  • Rock and a hard place
  • Sitting on a powder keg
  • Between Scylla and Charybdis (if you are a fan of Greek mythology)

The blog posts, interactive activities, and podcasts from this series focus on bleeding and clotting issues in emergency, ambulatory, and inpatient settings. The content is based on what you and your colleagues identified as important in a social-media based needs assessment in Fall 2016.
