VHMA Practice Pulse
Member Article Submissions
VHMA invites our members to submit articles to our monthly newsletter Practice Pulse. This is a great opportunity to share your insights with your colleagues about innovative projects and initiatives from which others can learn. VHMA members are creative and innovative and pride themselves on their unique approach to addressing issues that arise in their practices. Your success stories provide others with the tools to have an impact on their practices.
Article Submission Guidelines:
#1. Articles must be management specific in nature, and must be focused on one of the following topic areas: human resources, law and ethics, marketing, organization, and finance.
#2. Articles must be no more than 750 words in length and may contain charts or graphics.
#3. Articles must be original works and not previously published, or copyrighted material.
#4. Articles must be edited for grammer and puntuation prior to submission.
#5. Articles must be submitted electronically in Word document to the VHMA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submitted articles will be placed in the newsletter in no specific order. If you have any special requests be sure to note that on your submission form.
TIPS FOR WRITING YOUR ARTICLE:
- You may submit an article on any topic you wish within the topic areas listed above. We encourage you to write an article about something that you do or researched for your hospital that you think other members can benefit from.
- You don't have to be a subject matter expert, you just need a great idea that others can benefit from.
- Be sure to clearly identify the problem or issue you were addressing when you implemented your solution or proposed your idea.
- Including "lessions learned" can be helpful to readers dealing with similar problems.
