Join your SDS peers on an electronic quality network

American Health Consultants, the publisher of Same-Day Surgery, now offers an electronic forum, called a "listserv," that allows readers to network with one another via e-mail.

The listserv is free to our subscribers. It is intended to be an open forum for any and all same-day surgery nurses, managers, and administrators who wish to discuss their profession, exchange questions, or share their experiences with their peers.

All it takes to join is an e-mail account. Simply send a message to and put the words "subscribe sameday-surgery" in the body of the message followed by your first and last names. (For example, subscribe sameday-surgery jane doe.) You will then receive instructions on how the forum works, how to post messages to the forum, and how to exit the forum.

For those with access to the World Wide Web, you can visit our home page at and click on the button for our listservs and follow the prompts and instructions to subscribe to the forum of your choice.

The listserv is sponsored by American Health Consultants and is managed by the editors of Same-Day Surgery. Telephone: (800) 688-2421.
