US Elsevier adds Transition to Practice platform to its nursing education offerings - 11 Apr 2019

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced the addition of the Transition to Practice platform to its complete nursing education offerings, spanning the nursing career continuum – from the critical transition of a newly graduated nurse from academia to practice through orientation and career advancement.

Transition to Practice is built to complement a healthcare organisation’s residency or orientation program or to be a standalone transitional program. This new platform is highly immersive, providing a safe environment for novice nurses to practice on virtual patients without negative repercussions, honing critical thinking, prioritisation, delegation and other professional skills. The assessment of each new nurse allows for a personalised learning experience, while accelerating professional ability. In addition, the platform focuses on ways to improve the core support team’s ability to monitor a new nurse’s feelings of confidence and support. Learning and performance data is combined to provide actionable insights which can then be used to detect at-risk new nurse graduates by tracking changes in nurse’s outcomes, improving communication, and identifying the root cause.

Hospitals struggle to retain newly licensed nurses, seeing an average turnover rate of up to 35 percent and an average cost of $70,000 to onboard each nurse. Transitioning from school to the clinical setting is a real challenge as new nurses often struggle with gaps in professional skills. Providing a comprehensive onboarding experience can reduce new nurse graduate’s anxiety levels and increase satisfaction and engagement.

Transition to Practice complements the existing portfolio which contains the highest quality evidence for best practices in nursing. The Clinical eLearning courses are developed in association with exclusive partnerships and clinical experts. As a new nurse begins their professional career or an experienced nurse transitions to a different specialty, it is important to ensure knowledge and skills are reflective of best practices and current evidence.

Mosby’s Medical-Surgical Nursing Orientation and ENA: Emergency Nursing Orientation 3.0 are just two examples of the didactic courses offered to help nurses during orientation, while building and refining their clinical judgement and critical thinking skills. These courses promote consistent care across a healthcare organisation and consequently decrease the demand on hospital resources.

Support for nurses does not end at orientation. There are a variety of new role transition courses available to nurses advancing their career, such as Mosby’s Preceptor.

Providing authoritative, evidence-based education and engaging support helps to improve satisfaction and retention, standardise care throughout the organisation, and improve patient outcomes. Elsevier is focused on all stages of the nurse’s journey and is leading the way with immersive, personalised education for clinicians from the new nurse graduate to advanced nurses practicing at the top of their license.

US Wolters Kluwer helps clinicians to redeem CE/CME credit on UpToDate mobile app - 11 Apr 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health has announced that the clinicians can now manage and redeem their Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits directly on the UpToDate® mobile app and mobile web. In addition, ABIM-certified physicians can submit CME credits earned using UpToDate to fulfil select Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements from the UpToDate mobile app and mobile web.

With an unabated flow of new medical research, healthcare professionals are challenged to keep up with new evidence and to identify relevant research that changes clinical practice. Researchers at Stanford estimate that about 1.47 million new biomedical research papers will be published in 2019, with an annual growth rate of about five percent.

To stay current, CME/CE/CPD is a key component of clinicians’ professional development and directly impacts their practice of medicine. From Australia to the United Arab Emirates, UpToDate is accredited and recognised as a continuing education resource by colleges, associations, and authorities from around the world. Over 20 organisations in the US and 35 internationally recognise CME earned in UpToDate. In 2018 alone, nearly 200,000 clinicians have taken advantage of UpToDate CME to fulfil their professional development requirements.

In addition to UpToDate, Wolters Kluwer is a provider of a range of continuing education resources including: AudioDigest; Lippincott® NursingCenter; Lippincott Learning; and CEConnection.

US SAGE Publishing announces video and data additions to its Research Methods resource - 11 Apr 2019

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced the release of SAGE Research Methods Datasets Part 2, a collection of 300 new datasets that demonstrate how-to support for data analysis, and SAGE Research Methods Video: Data Science, Big Data Analytics, and Digital Methods. With these additions, SAGE adds to its growing collection of resources that aid in the facilitation of data source training and data comprehension and analysis.

SAGE Research Methods Datasets Part 2 is a collection of datasets intended to support the learning and teaching of quantitative and qualitative analytical methods across the social sciences. The datasets are taken from real research projects and edited by statisticians, professors, lecturers and academics from around the world for use. Each dataset is accompanied by a step-by-step guide to walk users through the analysis technique being demonstrated, including software guides for quantitative methods.

As part of the collection’s expansion, the datasets cover additional methods, such as data management, network data techniques and quantitative geography-specific methods, the software package Python and more examples from across the social sciences. These 300 new datasets allow students to see how analytic decisions are made and use real data to practice analysis, helping them become confident researchers.

Containing 120 hours of streaming video, the Data Science, Big Data Analytics, and Digital Methods video collection covers data science methods, issues and challenges surrounding big data research and examples and applications of computational social science.

SAGE’s history of supporting the development of social science research methods dates to the 1970s and includes the publication of the Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences series, known as the ‘Little Green Books,’ supporting the development of evaluation and mixed methods, and later, creating digital tools that teach an expanding list of methodologies. Most recently, the company launched SAGE Ocean, an initiative to help social scientists navigate vast data sets and work with new technologies with a dedicated incubation team that is constantly developing new resources and tools.

The award-winning SAGE Research Methods platform features book and reference titles, cases, datasets, video and, coming Fall 2019, a new comprehensive reference work written by methods experts from around the world. The platform’s coverage spans the full range of research methods used in the social and behavioural sciences, as well as a wide range of methods commonly used in science, technology, medicine and the humanities.

UK Cambridge University Press and the University of California enter OA publishing deal - 11 Apr 2019

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press and the University of California have entered into a transformative agreement that will advance the global shift toward an open access future for research.

The agreement is designed to maintain UC’s access to Cambridge’s journals, while also supporting open access publishing for UC authors. The partnership is UC’s first open access agreement with a major publisher, and Cambridge’s first such deal in the Americas.

Under the agreement, UC will have full and permanent access to the Press’s entire collection of over 400 journals, and open access publishing in Cambridge’s journals will be available to authors across the UC’s 10 campuses. Because the subscription ‘reading’ fee will go down as UC’s open access publishing goes up, the university will see no significant overall increase to the cost of its contract. The three-year agreement will allow UC and Cambridge to pilot this approach from 2019 through 2021.

In the past two years Cambridge has also reached open access deals with the JISC consortium in the UK, the Bibsam consortium in Sweden, the UKB consortium in the Netherlands and, most recently, with the Bavarian State Library (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, BSB) on behalf of higher education and research institutions across Germany.

Guided by UC’s faculty-driven principles for transforming scholarly communication, the deal claims to be one of the first, and the largest, transformative open access publishing agreements in the US to date. As a public institution, a central tenet of the UC’s mission is to make knowledge more broadly available and to facilitate new discoveries that build on the university’s research.

US Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the National Academy of Sciences sign historic agreement - 11 Apr 2019

The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has signed a historic scientific cooperation agreement with The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities (IASH).

The purpose of the accord is to benefit outstanding scientists in both countries and to formalise cooperative relations between their scientific communities. Under the terms of the agreement, annual national scientific conferences with the participation of dozens of leading scientists will take place alternately in Israel and the US. The accord also provides for annual binational exchanges of eminent scientists and scholars, who will hold meetings and conduct seminars at local academic institutions and deliver public lectures.

The IASH has agreements with more than forty corresponding institutions around the world and has cooperation with the Royal Society and with several additional academies in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and the Far East. The NAS similarly collaborates with the academies of many other countries, including the Royal Society, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and French Academy of Sciences, as well as international networks of academies of science.

The cooperation agreement between the IASH and the NAS will be implemented with the support of the Blavatnik Family Foundation headed by the American businessman and philanthropist Len Blavatnik. The initial agreement will run for a five-year period, to the end of 2023.

Currently five NAS members work in Israel, in addition to fifteen Israeli researchers who are NAS foreign associates, twelve of whom work in Israel and three in the US.

US OCLC announces Gwinnett County Public Library as newest early adopter for OCLC Wise - 11 Apr 2019

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced that the Gwinnett County Public Library has signed on to implement OCLC Wise, the first community engagement system for US public libraries.

Gwinnett County Public Library (GCPL) joins Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Anythink, in Adams County, Colorado, as an early adopter for Wise. This robust system seamlessly integrates the power of customer relationship management, marketing, and analytics with typical integrated library system (ILS) functionality, such as circulation and acquisitions. Wise transforms traditional library management with a holistic, people-centered approach-empowering library staff to better understand and meet community needs.

The GCPL team has been transitioning many aspects of the organisation over the past several years to transform into a true community-oriented library. Adding Wise is another significant step in that transformation.

Wise is the first community engagement system for US public libraries. The system is currently used by more than 75 percent of public libraries in the Netherlands and has been tailored to address the specific needs of U.S. public libraries. OCLC will work with early adopters, other public libraries, and the library community at large to help inform Wise development efforts.

OCLC is actively recruiting early adopter partnerships for Wise. This special group of libraries will work closely and collaborate with OCLC's product team to evaluate ongoing development opportunities and to shape future library innovation.
