Academic research is increasingly cross-disciplinary and collaborative, between and within institutions. In this context, what is the role and relevance of an individual's spatial position on a campus? We examine the collaboration patterns of faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, through their academic output (papers and patents), and their organizational structures (institutional affiliation and spatial configuration) over a 10-year time span. An initial comparison of output types reveals: 1...

INTRODUCTION: The multi-disciplinary antimicrobial stewardship team at the study hospital conducts prospective review and feedback on all inpatient orders of piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems. In addition, the team provides non-antibiotic recommendations (i.e. additional investigations and infectious disease reviews). This study aimed to describe the impact of these recommendations on patient outcomes. METHODS: Patients on carbapenem and piperacillin-tazobactam who received at least one non-antibiotic recommendation between January 2012 and August 2014 were included in this study...

In many centres, anaesthesia now incorporates perioperative medicine. Preeclampsia is a perioperative medical challenge requiring a multi-disciplinary team. New definitions stress the rapid progression of the disease and highlight the importance of early detection. Anaesthesiologists should understand the pathophysiology of the disease and develop the ultrasound skills required to assist in the assessment of disease severity. This facilitates the choice of anaesthesia method and perioperative management in complicated cases...

INTRODUCTION: A large number of women experience pregnancy after bariatric surgery. The purpose of this review was to understand the evidence base in this area to come up with practical, evidence-based recommendations. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We examined PubMed for all published articles on pregnancy in patients who have previously undergone a bariatric surgery. EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: There is an increasing body of evidence pointing towards a beneficial effect of weight loss induced by bariatric surgery on female and male fertility prompting calls for recognition of infertility as a qualifying co-morbidity for patients between the BMI of 35...

The need for multidisciplinary research to address today's complex health and environmental challenges has never been greater. The One Health (OH) approach to research ensures that human, animal, and environmental health questions are evaluated in an integrated and holistic manner to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the problem and potential solutions than would be possible with siloed approaches. However, the OH approach is complex, and there is limited guidance available for investigators regarding the practical design and implementation of OH research...

One Health is held as an approach to solve health problems in this era of complexity and globalization, but inadequate attention has been paid to the competencies required to build successful teams and programs. Most of the discussion on developing One Health teams focuses on creating cross-disciplinary awareness and technical skills. There is, however, evidence that collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams need skills, processes and institutions that enable policy and operations to be co-managed and co-delivered across jurisdictions...

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is a rural, academic medical center in the northeastern United States; its General Internal Medicine (GIM) division performs about 900 low and intermediate surgical risk preoperative evaluations annually. Routine preoperative testing in these evaluations is widely considered a low-value service. Our baseline data sample showed unnecessary testing rates of approximately 36%. A multi-disciplinary team used a micro-systems approach to analyze the existing process and formulate a rapid cycle improvement strategy...

To determine if medical or functional factors influence the ability of a pediatric patient with a tracheostomy to tolerate decannulation. Retrospective evaluation of patients at a tertiary Children's Hospital undergoing evaluation with capped tracheostomy polysomnogram (cPSG) for possible tracheostomy decannulation. Charts were reviewed for demographic information, functional status, cPSG characteristics, and success or failure of decannulation. Statistical analysis was performed to determine which patient factors were predictive of successful decannulation...

PROBLEM AND BACKGROUND: Despite a generally affluent society, the caesarean section rate in Switzerland has steadily climbed in recent years from 22.9% in 1998 to 33.7% in 2014. Speculation by the media has prompted political questions as to the reasons. However, there is no clear evidence as to why the Swiss rate should be so high especially in comparison with neighbouring countries. AIM: To describe the emerging expectations of giving birth of healthy primigravid women in the early second semester of pregnancy in four Swiss cantons...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Virtual reality (VR) based simulators offer numerous benefits and are very useful in assessing and training surgical skills. Although they are standard in some surgical subspecialties, their actual use in spinal surgery remains unclear. Currently, only technical reviews of VR based simulators are available for spinal surgery. PURPOSE: Thus, we performed a systematic review which examined the existing research on VR based simulators in spinal procedures...

Despite an explosion in the number of options available for helping diabetic patients heal wounds, major amputation remains a critical issue for these persons. Since diabetes prematurely ages tissues and no organ system is immune to its presence, it makes inherent sense that multi-disciplinary team approaches to these patients is necessary to make significant strides forward. Here, we present literature from the fields of podiatric surgery/medicine, vascular and plastic surgery and introduce the successes that a multi-disciplinary limb salvage center can have on the lives and limbs of patients with diabetes...

Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is expressed ubiquitously throughout the body. Thus, while respiratory manifestations dominate much of cystic fibrosis (CF) care, there are prominent multi-organ manifestations and comorbidities. In the general population, the number of comorbidities increases with aging. Few illnesses have experienced such a dramatic improvement in survival as CF, which has been transformed from an illness of childhood death to one of adult survival. Hence, as longevity increases in CF, it is paralleled by an increasing number of patients with multicomplex comorbidities availing of care from adult CF multi-disciplinary teams...

Continuous glucose monitoring associated with intensive insulin regimens represents a useful tool to lower HbA1c in selected adults with type 1 diabetes. Recent randomized controlled trials demonstrated greater glycemic benefits in type 1 diabetic patients treated with multiple daily injections of insulin and continuous glucose monitoring over usual care. These positive outcomes, however, are counter-balanced by several limitations that restrict the use of continuous glucose monitoring in the real life, including the apparent lack of benefits in children and pregnant diabetic women, the high cost, the stringent patients' selection, and the presence of a multi-disciplinary team with specific expertise...

BACKGROUND: The ascending aorta is an uncommon site for non-infective thrombus. In non-aneurysmal and non-atherosclerotic vessels this condition becomes extremely rare, while it represents a source of potential cerebral and peripheral embolic events. Currently, there is no consensus in the guidelines on how to treat a free floating thrombus in ascending aorta, therefore we present our decision making process and therapeutic strategy. CASE PRESENTATION: A healthy 48-year-old man was hospital admitted with acute abdominal pain...
