Objective: To further study the development of burn rehabilitation in China, so as to promote the development of burn rehabilitation in China. Methods: The questionnaire about the development of burn rehabilitation treatment was started by Specialized Committee of Burn Treatment and Rehabilitation Science of Chinese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine (hereinafter referred to as Specialized Committee) in the end of 2014, and 65 affiliations of Specialized Committee members participated in. There was a total of 26 questions, mainly focusing on problems as below: (1) General information of the burn department of the units, including the number of authorized beds, annual admitted burn patients, annual admitted patients with extremely severe burn, doctors, nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and the condition of rehabilitation area and rehabilitation beds, etc...

Purpose Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has been established for many years and has become an increasingly important cornerstone of the diagnostic imaging of various organ systems. However, this modality is rarely performed by radiologists and is primarily employed by other medical disciplines. The goal of this questionnaire study is to present the current value of CEUS in radiology and to encourage reevaluation of the method within this medical discipline. Materials and Methods 560 directors of radiology departments throughout Germany were contacted and given a 3-page questionnaire...

Violence is increasing on medical-surgical units as a "silent epidemic." This quality improvement project employs a small non-experimental, single-group, pre- and post-test design (N = 11) to determine the effectiveness of de-escalation training on medical-surgical nurses' confidence levels when dealing with agitated patients. Regardless of age, education, or years of experience, scores improved for each question on Thackrey's (1987) Confidence in Coping with Patient Aggression Instrument after implementing Ten Domains of De-escalation by Richmond et al...

Although Kirkpatrick's original outcome-focused model is widely used to evaluate medical education programs, it is subject to criticism. To combat this criticism and address the complexities of learning environments, the New World Kirkpatrick Model has emerged. This brief article describes key aspects of the New World Kirkpatrick Model for program evaluation. Specifically, it highlights three major criticisms of Kirkpatrick's original model and discusses the ways in which this new model attempts to rebut them...

The use of point-of-care ultrasound (US) in the clinical setting has undergone massive growth, although its incorporation into training and practice is variable. Surgeons are interested in using point-of-care US and can incorporate it effectively into clinical practice. However, the current state of point-of-care US training in general surgery is inadequate. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education introduced the Milestones Project to evaluate resident and fellow performance. Emergency medicine is the only specialty with a point-of-care US milestone...

In 2015, the Parkinson's Disease Foundation sponsored the first international meeting on Palliative Care and Parkinson's disease and the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute funded the first comparative effectiveness trial of palliative care for Parkinson's disease. A council of Parkinson's disease patients and carepartners was engaged to assist with both projects. This council wrote the following manuscript as an opinion piece addressed to the clinical and research community on how palliative care could be applied to people living with Parkinson's disease and their families...

The number of companion animal wellness visits in private practice has been decreasing, and one important factor cited is the lack of effective communication between veterinarians and pet owners regarding the importance of preventive care. Checklists have been widely used in many fields and are especially useful in areas where a complex task must be completed with multiple small steps, or when cognitive fatigue is evident. The use of checklists in veterinary medical education has not yet been thoroughly evaluated as a potential strategy to improve communication with pet owners regarding preventive care...

BACKGROUND: Medical research strives to improve health; community-engaged research (CEnR) supports translation to the community. METHODS: This article describes the use of andragogical theory to develop asynchronous CEnR training. RESULTS: A total of 43 researchers and community members completed at least one module. The majority (67%-100%) stated that training met their educational needs and noted a desire for more information. CONCLUSION: The curriculum reinforced CEnR principles to enhance medical research...

EDITORIAL
Paul R Marantz, Harry P Selker, Emma A Meagher
The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) has instituted a new multiple choice examination in order to "certify" clinical and translational investigators. As experienced research educators, we argue that this certification process is unnecessary, values knowledge over competency, may be counter-productive, and is unlikely to achieve any worthwhile outcome. We lay out these arguments in the hope of stimulating a robust discussion among leaders, faculty, and learners engaged in clinical research education and training...

Online interventions for gambling, alcohol, and illegal drug related problems have been developing at a fast pace over the past decade. Yet, little is known about the content and efficacy of interventions provided entirely online for reducing drug/alcohol use and gambling, or about the characteristics of those who use these interventions. This systematic review aims to describe the characteristics of online interventions, their efficacy, and the profile of their clientele. Documentation was mainly obtained through four scientific databases in psychology, technology, and medical research (PsychINFO, MedLine, Francis, and INSPEC) using three keywords (substances or gambling, intervention, Internet)...
