PURPOSE: Despite the growing presence of social media in graduate medical education (GME), few studies have attempted to characterize their effect on residents and their training. The authors conducted a systematic review of the peer-reviewed literature to understand the effect of social media on resident (1) education, (2) recruitment, and (3) professionalism. METHOD: The authors identified English-language peer-reviewed articles published through November 2015 using Medline, Embase, Cochrane, PubMed, Scopus, and ERIC...

PURPOSE: Community-based faculty play a large role in training medical students nationwide and require faculty development. The authors hypothesized that positive relationships exist between clerkships paying preceptors and requiring faculty development, and between protected clerkship directors' time and delivering face-to-face preceptor training, as well as with the number or length of community-based preceptor visits. Through under standing the quantity, delivery methods, barriers, and institutional support for faculty development provided to community-based preceptors teaching in family medicine clerkships, best practices can be developed...

BACKGROUND: The term "holdover admissions" refers to patients admitted by an overnight physician and whose care is then transferred to a new primary team the next morning. Descriptions of the holdover process in internal medicine are sparse. OBJECTIVE: To identify important factors affecting the quality of holdover handoffs at an internal medicine (IM) residency program and to compare them to previously identified factors for other handoffs. DESIGN: We undertook a qualitative study using structured focus groups and interviews...

BACKGROUND: Trauma-induced coagulopathy, one of the leading causes of trauma-related death, is detected in about one of four trauma patients upon hospital admission. The current European Management of Major Bleeding and Coagulopathy Following Trauma guidelines, published in 2013, recommend that tranexamic acid (TXA) be administered as early as possible to inhibit hyperfibrinolysis (grade of recommendation (GoR 1A)). Furthermore, it is suggested that protocols for the management of patients with bleeding or showing signs of bleeding include the administration of the first dose of TXA at the site of injury or during transportation to hospital (GoR 2C)...

In order to enhance patient outcome and patient safety in healthcare, interprofessional education (IPE) has over the years become a specific area of interest focusing on teaching concepts, research methods, and implementation strategies. To achieve commitment and positive attitudes as part of the institutional readiness towards IPE, the adoption of change management aspects can support its early implementation. This short report presents results of a baseline survey on attitudes and preferences for IPE among first-year students in medicine and nursing, as well as among chief physicians, nurse directors, and administrative directors at the associated university hospital...

: Accreditation of medical residency programs has become globally important. Currently it is moving from the goal of attaining minimal standards to a model of continuous improvement. In some countries, the accreditation system engages peers (physicians) to survey residency programs. The surveyors are sometimes volunteers, usually engaged in multiple clinical and education activities. Few studies have investigated the benefits of residency program evaluation and accreditation from the perspective of the surveyors...

BACKGROUND: Interest in global health training during residency is increasing. Global health knowledge is also becoming essential for health-care delivery today. Many U.S. residency programs have been incorporating global health training opportunities for their residents. We performed a systematic literature review to evaluate global health training opportunities and challenges among U.S. residency specialties. METHODS: We searched PubMed from its earliest dates until October 2015...

BACKGROUND Antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) effectively optimize antibiotic use for inpatients; however, the extent of emergency department (ED) involvement in ASPs has not been described. OBJECTIVE To determine current ED involvement in children's hospital ASPs and to assess beliefs and preferred methods of implementation for ED-based ASPs. METHODS A cross-sectional survey of 37 children's hospitals participating in the Sharing Antimicrobial Resistance Practices collaboration was conducted. Surveys were distributed to ASP leaders and ED medical directors at each institution...

: 162 Background: There is an emerging standard to provide patients rapid electronic access to elements of their medical records,; this practice is controversial among practicing oncologists. Previous studies have primarily reported on patient access to physician notes and lab tests in primary care. In oncology, the emotional import and complexity of the results may be greater, particularly for staging imaging and biopsies. We report the opinions and experiences of oncologists after enabling patient access to radiology and pathology results for four months during which time finalized results were released upon physician action or after seven days...

: 181 Background: The recommendations of the Choosing Wisely campaign are evidence -based strategies to reduce cost without sacrificing outcomes. Yet tying the recommendations to indicators of use at the physician and case level has been challenging. As practices become responsible for total cost of care, an easy to use analytic method to determine appropriate use will be critical. We here describe a tool for rapid assessment of individual cases to achieve that objective. METHODS: The population was a payer defined cohort of lung cancer patients treated at Texas Oncology (TxO)...

: 216 Background: Considerable medical research done in the last decade, have brought new diagnostic and therapeutic options to the medical oncology field. This has, fortunately, greatly improved treatment options and outcomes of our cancer patients. Newer therapies such as immunotherapies have changed the toxicity profile of our interventions. In addition to "classic chemotherapy toxicity" these therapies can induce autoimmune phenomena including pneumonitis, colitis, etc. that may not initially be considered in patients' differential diagnosis...
