This is definitely not on topic, but I started a new job! At the VA! And for some reason I can’t access gmail, but I can access the forum? So random . . .AnneParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 1159Joined: 11/07/2017

I think they’re ultra paranoid about any file sharing — sending files out or putting any files on their computers. You can’t even stick a USB drive into a VA computer. To be fair, I’m sure the VA is a huge target for ransomware and they’d make national news if there’s a large data breach. So as long as the forum can’t do that I doubt they’d care.August 21, 2019 at 4:10 pm MST #240521SerrateAndDominateParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 486Joined: 02/01/2018
Yeah they’ve blocked out gmail for at least a few years. I wish they’d block Facebook while I rotate there. Things would move a tad faster
Haha you’re probably right about Facebook!
I hope they don’t block the forum, I’m going to need something for downtime.August 21, 2019 at 5:48 pm MST #240545ajm184ParticipantStatus: Other ProfessionalPosts: 635Joined: 07/14/2017
I work with our IT security team enough to be highly paranoid of a data breach.August 21, 2019 at 6:33 pm MST #240561ENT DocParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 3500Joined: 01/14/2017August 21, 2019 at 7:11 pm MST #240591

We once had a Chief of Staff (Navy Captain) put in a request to white-list E trade. His justification was, “not having access to my stocks could have a serious impact on my morale”. You should have seen the hoops they jumped through for that one. He ended up getting it, though. Signed off by the parent command back in the US.

I use YouTube in the clinic not infrequently to discuss exercises. Basically I vet the videos, I have ones I like that demonstrate what I want them to do and I show them to the patient in clinic and write down the YouTube episode for them to follow at home. I’ve found that compliance seems to be improved when I do this compared with just telling them what I want them to do or giving them a paper handout. I think it also helps when they can see that other people out there recommend this same exact thing it’s not just some exercise I made up lol.
