Implementation Of A Blended Learning Approach To Teaching Evidence Based Practice: A Protocol For A Mixed Methods Study, Dragan Ilic, Rusli Bin Nordin, P. Glasziou, Julie Tilson, Elmer Villanueva

Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine Publications

Background: Evidence based practice (EBP) requires that health professionals are competent in integrating the best evidence in their decision making. Being 'evidence-based' requires skills and knowledge in epidemiology, biostatistics and information literacy. EBP is commonly taught in medical and health sciences degrees, yet there is little evidence to guide educators as to the best teaching modality to increase learner competency in EBP. Methods/design. This study is mixed methods in design. A randomised controlled trial will examine the effectiveness of blended learning versus didactic approach of teaching EBP to medical students. The primary outcome of the RCT is EBP competency ...

Libraries Respond To Mobile Ubiquity: Research And Assessment Of Mobile Device Usage Trends For Academic And Medical Libraries, Megan M. Hurst, Eleanor I. Cook, J. Michael Lindsay, Martha F. Earl

Charleston Library Conference

The authors consider trends in mobile device usage for the Internet as a whole, for EBSCO Discovery Service across all client libraries, and at two specific libraries: Preston Medical Library, serving the University of Tennessee (UT) Graduate School of Medicine and UT Medical Center, and the Joyner Library at East Carolina University, serving students and faculty on the main campus. Librarians at Preston Medical Library conducted a survey to determine which mobile devices, platforms, and apps were used by their patrons in 2012. East Carolina University piloted an iPad and e-reader lending program in 2010–2011. The results of each ...

Student Safety And Patient Violence: The Basic Facts, Kevin J. Black

Kevin J. Black, MD

When our main view of patients is that we are there to help them, it seems odd to discuss the possibility that they may hurt us. Fortunately, this is rare. Unfortunately, it does happen. Below I have tried to give a few facts and hints to help keep you safe during your clinical years as a medical student.

Vehicles Of The Future: Building Course Pages To Promote Use Of Medical Library Resources, Suzanne P. Nagy Msls, Martin Wood Mslis

Maguire Medical Library Faculty Posters

In 2005, Course Pages were created to resolve the underutilization of medical library resources in the core areas of Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME). Course Pages may include e-books, e-journals, mobile resources, other online library resources, and reserve books.

Six initial Course Pages were developed. After successful integration with the curriculum, a Course Page is now available for every required course in UGME at Florida State University. The 2005 Course Pages emphasized a variety of relevant course resources; the 2013 standardized design emphasizes usability and relies on faculty approval of all course resources.

In 2010, Course Pages became accessible from any ...

More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz 2014 Syracuse University

More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Patient-centered care is a framework for providing medical services in a humanistic, patient-focused manner. Although there are many proposed dimensions, it is simply the perspective of caring for the patient as a person with psychosocial needs, not just a diagnosis. Extensive literature review was completed to gain understanding of the application of patient-centered care in undergraduate medical education, as well as the evidence behind implementing patient-centered methods. Aspects of patient-centered care may be taught in many medical schools but their importance warrants a stronger focus. Incorporating aspects of patient- centered care is not only most ethical, but also is also ...

Assessing The Readiness Of Nairobi Deaf Youth To Accept A Best-Practice Hiv/Aids Intervention, Ke'ala Morrell 2014 Providence College

Assessing The Readiness Of Nairobi Deaf Youth To Accept A Best-Practice Hiv/Aids Intervention, Ke'ala Morrell

Annual Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society

After nearly forty years of HIV/AIDS research in the global community, data on HIV/AIDS in the Deaf population is still disproportionately neglected. No surveillance system is in place to monitor prevalence, awareness or mode of HIV infection in the Deaf community. Additionally, prevention and education interventions have yet to be tailored to meet the specific needs of this highly vulnerable population.

Purpose: This project attempted to assess the readiness of the Nairobi Deaf youth community to accept a best-practice HIV/AIDS intervention. The broad objective of this research was to assess HIV awareness, perceptions and behaviors of Deaf ...


Defining Obesity: An Argument For The Social Environment Perspective, Meghan McInnis 2014 Providence College

Defining Obesity: An Argument For The Social Environment Perspective, Meghan Mcinnis

Annual Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society

It is well documented that obesity is a growing problem in the U.S. and worldwide. By 2010, 35.9% of U.S. adults age 20 and older were obese (Overweight and Obesity, CDC). Obesity has been associated with many health problems, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, stroke, and cardiac disease (Lucey, 2008, p.202). What has just been described is the traditional, medicalized narrative of obesity. In this narrative, obesity is viewed as an epidemic that demands an immediate and widespread response (Lucey, 2008, p.202). The blame is placed largely on individuals, while social factors, such as ...
