The objective of our systematic review is to identify the current state of care review reported in peer-reviewed publications and to identify domains that contribute to successful systems of care review. METHODS: A librarian designed and conducted a comprehensive literature search of eight electronic databases...

BACKGROUND: Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant hereditary disorder resulting in vascular dysplasia and formation of arteriovenous malformations. Recurrent epistaxis is a hallmark of the disease. An array of medical therapies are used in this patient population, but robust evidence-based recommendations regarding the medical treatment of epistaxis are lacking. This systematic review was performed to look at the current literature and make meaningful evidence-based recommendations...

BACKGROUND: CFTR modulators are a new class of medications that target the underlying defect in in cystic fibrosis (CF). Ivacaftor (IVA) and IVA combined with lumacaftor (IVA/LUM) have been approved by the FDA for use in CF patients. However, the FDA label for these medications encompasses patient groups that were not studied as part of the drug approval process. CF clinicians, patients, and their families have recognized a need for recommendations to guide the use of these medications...

Background: REDCap, an electronic data capture tool, supports good research data management, but many researchers lack familiarity with the tool. While a REDCap administrator provided technical support and a clinical data management support unit provided study design support, a service gap existed. Case Presentation: Librarians with REDCap expertise sought to increase and improve usage through outreach, workshops, and consultations. In collaboration with a REDCap administrator and the director of the clinical data management support unit, the role of the library was established in providing REDCap training and consultations...

Adding patient encounters and simulation to the preclinical years of medical school is becoming increasingly popular. This article describes the creation of active learning opportunities by a clinical librarian that are aimed at training preclinical students through the use of simulated patient scenarios. Scenarios for second-year students walk them through the evidence-based resources needed in clinical years and beyond through a standardized patient encounter. Scenarios for first-year students involve role-play of cases where the patient and physician bring contrasting ideas to the outpatient interaction...

Low health literacy is well documented in East Tennessee. Before addressing the issue, librarians at the Preston Medical Library, University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, conducted a needs assessment of hospital staff to determine their knowledge of health literacy and the need for training. As a follow-up, library staff conducted training sessions for nurses through classes, small group meetings, and staff huddles. The result is an increased dialogue of health literacy at the hospital, along with new research projects, a forum, and a summit meeting...

REVIEW
Nikhil Mehta, Robert Vannozzi
Lithium has been used for the treatment of bipolar disorder for more than 6 decades. Reports of cardiac side effects resulting in both benign electrocardiographic (ECG) changes and near fatal arrhythmias have been reported in the literature. A systematic literature search was conducted on 2 electronic databases-PubMed and Medline-for the time period between January 1970 and March 2016 using the key word "lithium," along with "electrocardiography" or "ECG." All articles and their references were then screened by title for relevance by 2 authors and a librarian...

PURPOSE: To determine whether warming of irrigation fluids (32°C-40°C) compared with using room-temperature irrigation fluids (20°C-22°C) decreases the risk of perioperative hypothermia (<36°C) for patients undergoing shoulder, hip, or knee arthroscopy. METHODS: One reviewer, with the assistance of a medical librarian, searched the following databases: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Central, SPORTDiscus, Web of Science, and CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature)...

Librarian and information services focused on supporting research, teaching, and health care are vital for the generation of new knowledge and its application in health care, both by staff and students, helps to improve the quality of medical care. Therefore, in this article we expose an historical and social tour of 50 years of the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social's library services in Puebla. From 1964 to 2014 occurred many events in the development of these services in our area, from the creation of a small space in the basement, to the implementation of spaces created deliberately to provide dignified service to all users, which is why this historical sketch is here as an acknowledgement to the first librarians who contributed to the training of specialists in Mexico...
