The Purpose And Value For Students Of Pbl Groups For Learning, Vicki J. Skinner, Annette Braunack-Mayer, Tracey A. Winning 2015 University of Adelaide

The Purpose And Value For Students Of Pbl Groups For Learning, Vicki J. Skinner, Annette Braunack-Mayer, Tracey A. Winning

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

Groups are central to problem-based learning (PBL) and educational and professional outcomes relevant to clinical education. However, PBL groups in practice may differ from theoretical conceptions of groups. Therefore, this study explored students’ understandings of the purpose and value of PBL groups for their learning. We conducted a naturalistic study with novice (first-year) students at two dental schools (Australia, Ireland), using observation and interviews analyzed thematically. Students constructed PBL learning as individual knowledge gain, and group purpose as information gathering and exchange; few students acknowledged the learning potential of group processes. Group value depended on assessment and curriculum context. Findings ...


The Use Of Pbl In An Interprofessional Education Course For Health Care Professional Students, Kristine M. L'Ecuyer, David Pole, Sheila A. Leander 2015 Saint Louis University

The Use Of Pbl In An Interprofessional Education Course For Health Care Professional Students, Kristine M. L'Ecuyer, David Pole, Sheila A. Leander

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

A problem-based learning (PBL) framework was utilized in a series of six interprofessional team seminars (IPTS) for postbaccalaureate students from seven health professions. The goal of IPTS was to develop a collaborative practice-ready workforce prepared to respond to patient care needs through use of concrete examples, skills development, critical thinking, and problem solving in safe, faculty-facilitated small groups. The collaborative nature of PBL closely correlates with teaching methodologies of the IPTS series. This study analyzed critical reflection assignments of nursing students in accelerated programs to determine the effectiveness of IPTS at preparing students for interprofessional collaborative practice. Findings indicated that ...

Wikipedia And Medicine: Quantifying Readership, Editors, And The Significance Of Natural Language, James M. Heilman, Andrew G. West

Andrew G. West

BACKGROUND: Wikipedia is a collaboratively edited encyclopedia. One of the most popular websites on the Internet, it is known to be a frequently used source of healthcare information by both professionals and the lay public.

OBJECTIVE: This document quantifies: (1) The amount of medical content on Wikipedia, (2) the citations supporting Wikipedia’s medical content, (3) the readership of medical content, and (4) the quantity/characteristics of Wikipedia’s medical contributors

METHODS: Using a well-defined categorization infrastructure we identify medically pertinent English Wikipedia articles and links to their foreign language equivalents (Objective 1). With these, Wikipedia’s API can be ...

Nephrology : Encouraging Self-Study Among Patients Of Non-Medical Scientific Professionals, Chuen-Tat Kang

Chuen-Tat Kang (江俊达)

Medical journals are seldom touched by the scientific professionals that worked in non-related field of study. However, using nephrological journals to solve the health issues independently may be rare without relying on medical doctors and professionals that charge very high cost of medical consultation. For those patients potentially have been affected by renal diseases particularly related to diabetic nephrology, then it is recommended to assist oneself by taking additional initiatives to understand more about the health problem by summarising the content of independent nephrological research as below, not only able assist the patient affected but also helping the nephrology professionals ...

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

We present the case of a 55-year-old male with Parkinson’s disease who underwent staged DBS surgery. After placement of the electrodes in the left brain, the patient exhibited altered mental status that terminated the procedure and prevented placement of electrodes in the right brain. CT and MRI scans showed a small intracranial hemorrhage in the left dorsolateral STN. The patient recovered with no permanent adverse effects and was successfully implanted one month later. However, the patient reported substantial reduction in his right-sided tremor following the ICH. The stimulator in the left brain was thus left off for approximately one ...


Differ In Socio-Cognitive Processes? Some Comparisons Between Paper And Video Triggered Pbl, Jingyan Lu, Lap Ki Chan 2015 The University of Hong Kong

Differ In Socio-Cognitive Processes? Some Comparisons Between Paper And Video Triggered Pbl, Jingyan Lu, Lap Ki Chan

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

This paper investigates whether paper and video triggers stimulate different social and cognitive processes during PBL. The study focused on how medical students identified and described problems, and how they built shared cognitions that lead them to diagnose and solve problems. The results showed that students who used video triggers put more effort into communicating their understanding of the problem and relevant knowledge than students who used paper triggers. The findings contribute to discussions on how to evaluate the effectiveness of different PBL triggers in order to better integrate them into the curriculum.

Division of Education

Live for a little over two years, Lehigh Valley Health Network’s repository, LVHN Scholarly Works, has enhanced the Network’s reputation and research credibility by increasing the visibility of its scholarship. In addition to enhancing the Network’s reputation, LVHN Scholarly Works has been instrumental in saving time and easing workflows for several of its residency programs as well as for ACGME accreditation, and has even contributed to filling in missing pieces of institutional history. As the initiative moves forward, the library continues to look for ways to further increase the visibility of LVHN’s scholarship and help to ...

Intravenous Estrogen Is Not Proven Effective For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Guidelines Are Based On Flawed Evidence, Stephen Simmer 2015 Wayne State University

Intravenous Estrogen Is Not Proven Effective For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Guidelines Are Based On Flawed Evidence, Stephen Simmer

Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates

A critical appraisal and clinical application of: DeVore GR, Owens O, Kase N. Use of intravenous Premarin in the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding--a double-blind randomized control study. Obstet Gynecol. 1982 Mar;59(3):285-91.

This appraisal identifies significant statistical irregularities in the study. A reworking of the study's statistics leads to a conclusion different from that put forth by the authors of this paper: intravenous estrogen therapy is not, in fact, significantly more effective compared to placebo therapy for the cessation of acute abnormal uterine bleeding.

Statewide Survey Identifies Major Opportunities To Improve Patient-Centered Care, James Bailey Jr., Md, Facp, Wayne J. Pitts Phd, Jill Nault Mssw

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

Primary care physicians (PCPs) are being challenged to provide higher quality and more patient-centered care. The Patient-Centered Medical Home Model has been demonstrated to improve healthcare quality as well as patient and physician satisfaction by fostering patient self-management, team-based care, work flow redesign, care coordination, patient–centered care, population health focus, and open access.1-3 Many states like North Carolina and Louisiana have launched major statewide efforts to support the development of patient-centered medical homes.4,5 However, poorly aligned reimbursement mechanisms and inadequate quality improvement (QI) infrastructure make adoption of emerging best practices difficult. Little is known regarding PCPs ...
