Long Term Care: Outgoing Editor Larry Goldman shares some parting thoughts in his Notes column while Outgoing Chair Gene Gantt talks about the strides made by the section during his tenure in his. We also have a profile of our 2012 Specialty Practitioner of the Year, plus articles on OSHA’s new focus on nursing home injuries among staff, Medicare penalties for excessive readmissions to the acute care hospital, and cell phones and the risk of infection they pose to our patients and residents.

Management: This issue kicks off with a profile of our Specialty Practitioner of the Year, then features three great articles managers won’t want to miss: the first delves into the lead, teach, coach, manage model of leadership; the second is Part II of our series on managing staff in a union environment; and the third is an open letter to hospital administration on understanding RT productivity.

Neonatal-Pediatrics: The section’s 2012 Specialty Practitioner of the Year takes center stage here too, and we also offer profiles on the other folks nominated for this year’s award. An informative article on the respiratory management of patients with Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy rounds out the issue.

Sleep: Meeting educational criteria for polysomnography is covered in our feature article, and we also have a profile of our Specialty Practitioner of the Year.

Surface & Air Transport: Outgoing Chair Steve Sittig thanks the membership for its support during his tenure in his Notes column and we are introduced to our new chair, Billy Hutchinson, and Bulletin co-editor, Bryan Byrd, in theirs. Our Specialty Practitioner of the Year is highlighted as well, and we have an informative article on the development of critical care levels going on now at CAMTS.
