Tom P Harrod, Alexandra W Gomes
The launch of the revised medical school curriculum in fall 2014 provided new opportunities for librarians to collaborate with clinical faculty. As a result of past informatics instruction embedded in the first-year curriculum, librarians were invited to expand this content as part of a new Formative Objective Structured Clinical Examination (FOSCE) initiative. This article describes the stages of this project from writing and teaching the FOSCE informatics cases to improvements which were made after the first year...

BACKGROUND: Spitz nevi are uncommon melanocytic neoplasms found in children. Historically, the diagnosis and management of these tumors has lacked consensus among oncologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons, and dermatologists. Once interpreted and treated as a "juvenile melanoma", many have argued for the benignancy of such tumors in certain patient age groups, encouraging a conservative approach. The lack of consensus surrounding the diagnosis and perceived malignant potential of these tumors has led physicians to approach them on a case-by-case basis and institutional protocols...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolism (Wickham et al., 2012 [1]) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with cancer; however, primary thromboprophylaxis is not routinely recommended. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized control trials (RCTs) to measure the impact of primary VTE prevention and its effect on mortality among patients with lung cancer. METHODS: With assistance from a master librarian, we searched Ovid, Scopus, DARE, CINAHL, MEDLINE, EMBASE, EBM reviews-Cochrane database of systematic reviews, EBM reviews-ACP journal, and EBM Reviews-Databases for relevant studies following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: Cognitive impairment is a well-known complication of classical galactosemia (CG). Differences in patient characteristics and test methods have hampered final conclusions regarding the extent of intellectual disabilities in CG. The primary aim of this systematic review was to assess intellectual performance in early-treated (≤4 weeks of life) individuals with confirmed CG (defined by absent or barely detectable GALT enzyme activity and/or the presence of two null or severe missense variations), assessed with comparable test instruments...

BACKGROUND: Fluid therapy is a mainstay during the resuscitation of critically ill children. After initial stabilization, excessive fluid accumulation may lead to complications of fluid overload, which has been independently associated with increased risk for mortality and major morbidity in critically ill children. OBJECTIVES: Perform an evidence synthesis to describe the methods used to measure fluid balance, define fluid overload, and evaluate the association between fluid balance and outcomes in critically ill children...

REVIEW
Frances A Brahmi, F Thomas D Kaplan
Adding a librarian to an upper extremity surgical and therapy practice has many advantages (educational, research, remaining on the cutting edge of technology). As an embedded team member, the librarian at the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center prepares literature reviews, creates Google Scholar Alerts for individual clinicians, and introduces developing technologies such as 3-dimensional printers, Smartphone Apps, and online access to nontraditional resources. With the librarian relieving clinicians of these responsibilities, surgeons can devote more time to clinical and research activities...

OBJECTIVE: With the myriad of cases presented to clinicians every day at our integrated academic health system, clinical questions are bound to arise. Clinicians need to recognize these knowledge gaps and act on them. However, for many reasons, clinicians might not seek answers to these questions. Our goal was to investigate the rationale and process behind these unanswered clinical questions. Subsequently, we explored the use of biomedical information resources among specialists and primary care providers and identified ways to promote more informed clinical decision making...

BACKGROUND: Citing numerous pediatric-specific deficiencies within Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended that EMS systems appoint a pediatric emergency care coordinator (PECC) to provide oversight of EMS activities related to care of children, to promote the integration of pediatric elements into day-to-day services as well as local and/or regional disaster planning, and to promote pediatric education across all levels of EMS providers. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature was undertaken to describe the evidence for pediatric coordination across the emergency care continuum...

INTRODUCTION: Previous studies have reported an association between classic galactosemia (CG) and decreased bone mass. The primary objective of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to determine the extent of bone mineral density (BMD) Z-score reduction. Low BMD was defined as a Z-score ≤-2 standard deviations (SD). The secondary objective was to evaluate other indicators of bone status through a descriptive analysis. METHODS: Systematic search strategies were developed by an experienced clinical librarian...

INTRODUCTION: Trauma is a leading cause of mortality and disability in children worldwide. The World Health Organization reports that 95% of all childhood injury deaths occur in Low-Middle-Income Countries (LMIC). Injury scores have been developed to facilitate risk stratification, clinical decision making, and research. Trauma registries in LMIC depend on adapted trauma scores that do not rely on investigations that require unavailable material or human resources. We sought to review and assess the existing trauma scores used in pediatric patients...
