AIMS: Special interest groups provide opportunities for collaboration and networking, but a void exists in the literature regarding the impact of student special interest groups (SSIGs). The purposes of this study were to: 1) describe doctorate of physical therapy (DPT) student and faculty attendance and perceptions of SSIGs; 2) explore how student participation in SSIGs affected their perceptions of confidence with clinical decision-making, knowledge, and performance of clinical skill; and 3) explore perceptions of interprofessional opportunities within SSIGs...

Patient satisfaction has become a topic of interest within orthopedics as the landscape of provider reimbursement continues to evolve to reward value of care. Online internet physician rating sites are becoming increasingly popular ways for patients to subjectively express their provider experience. Understanding what patients value during their episode of care is important in the modern healthcare environment. The purpose of this study is to determine what preferences, if any, patients have when selecting their physician and how they experience care in an outpatient orthopedic setting...

BACKGROUND: Orthopedic operating room (OR) nurses entail specialized skills and training, which are not part of the regular curricula at most nursing college. Instead, many nursing students' exposure to orthopedic care in the orthopedic range is limited to occasional observational assignments. Additionally, teamwork is an important factor affecting the performance of the orthopedic OR nurses. This results in a knowledge gap in clinical nursing education. Problem and scripting based learning (PSBL) method is a crucial tool of pre-operative prepared improvement...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate the effect of teaching a simplified treatment-based classification of proximal femoral fractures on the accuracy, confidence, and inter-reader agreement of radiology residents. The authors hypothesize that these measures will improve after viewing an educational presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three radiology residents independently classified 100 operative proximal femoral fractures, both before and after viewing a 45-min educational video describing the simplified classification scheme, with a washout period of at least 12 weeks between sessions...

BACKGROUND: A recent ransomware attack led to the shutdown of the electronic health information system (HIS) at our trauma center for 2 mo. We investigated its impact on residency training during the downtime. MATERIAL AND METHODS: General and orthopedic surgical residents who rotated at the hospital were invited to participate in a survey regarding their patient care and residency training experiences during the downtime. Attending surgeons from both the specialties were invited to participate in a semistructured interview regarding their attitude toward residency training during the downtime...

BACKGROUND: A goal of shared decision making (SDM) is to ensure patients are well informed and receive preferred treatments. However, the relationship between SDM and health outcomes is not clear. OBJECTIVE: The purpose was to examine whether patients who are well informed and receive their preferred treatment have better health outcomes. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A prospective cohort study at an academic medical center surveyed new patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis, herniated disc, or spinal stenosis 1 week after seeing a specialist and again 6 months later...

Introduction: There are over 200 emergency medicine (EM) residency programs in the United States. While there are basic criteria defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), there can be significant variation between programs with regard to rotation distribution. Therefore, it would be valuable to have a benchmark for programs to understand their rotation mix in the context of the national landscape. This study aimed to provide a breakdown of the length and percentage of EM residency programs with each clinical rotation in the United States...

BACKGROUND: Nearly 2.8 million people are hospitalized in the USA annually for traumatic injuries, which include orthopedic and internal organ injuries. Early post-injury pain is predictive of poor outcomes, including inability to eventually return to work, and long-term psychological distress. The goal of the present study was to improve our scientific understanding of trauma-related pain by examining (1) the nature and frequency of inpatient trauma pain and (2) the associations between inpatient trauma pain, education, opioid analgesic equivalent use, pain catastrophizing, and sleep quality...

The treatment of children and adolescents with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) has progressed substantially during recent years. Multiple different factors have played a role in this advancement: improved medical treatment due to the introduction of new drugs, structural improvements with provision of units specializing in childhood rheumatology, multidisciplinary treatment concepts, structured educational programs for patients and parents, improved functional treatment including sports therapy, and selective surgical and orthopedic interventions improving functional capacities...

Background: Roller massage (RM) has become a popular intervention prescribed by physical therapy (PT) professionals. While this popularity has stimulated an increase in research and product development, the trends in the use of RM among PT professionals remain undocumented. It is unknown how professionals are using RM and integrating the research into their clinical practice. Purpose: To survey and document responses in the knowledge, clinical application methods, and use of RM devices among PT professionals in the United States...

Vertebral augmentation techniques are used to stabilize impacted vertebrae. To minimize intraoperative risks, a solid education of surgeons is desirable. Thus, to improve education of surgeons as well as patient safety, the development of a high-fidelity simulator for the surgical training of cement augmentation techniques was initiated. The integrated synthetic vertebrae should be able to provide realistic haptics during all procedural steps. Synthetic vertebrae were developed, tested and validated with reference to human vertebrae...

BACKGROUND: Due to orthopedic surgery's unique educational model, recent changes within graduate medical education have the potential to impact the methods and outcomes of specialty training significantly. Using Mind the Gap: Representation of Medical Education in Cardiology-Related Articles and Journals (Allred et al., 2016) as a framework, this study investigates educational research within the field of orthopedics. OBJECTIVE: Two main objectives were evaluated: (1) quantitative analysis of the amount and type of orthopedic education-related research in orthopedic, general surgery, and medical education journals and (2) estimate the priority of orthopedic journals to publish education-focused articles...

Background: As the use of biologic therapies for the management of knee pathology continues to expand, it is more likely that patients will turn to the Internet to gather information on this topic. Given the lack of scientific consensus on the use of biologics, care providers must understand what information is available online. Questions/Purposes: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality of websites that patients may use to educate themselves on knee biologics...
