US Clinicians across 139 nations turn to Wolters Kluwer’s UpToDate Advanced for high-quality care - 12 Jul 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health has announced that the use of UpToDate® Advanced continues to grow significantly around the world since its release in February 2018. In 16 months, nearly 700 hospitals and health systems in 25 countries as well as 17,000 individual UpToDate subscribers in 139 countries have taken advantage of the interactive pathways to improve care.

UpToDate Advanced clinical pathways target common medical conditions with unwarranted variability in care, helping clinicians meet national and international quality measures. Care variations can be costly for hospitals. After analysing care variation in 468 hospitals, The Advisory Board found that a typical facility could save up to $29 million annually by delivering care in line with cost benchmarks for high-quality hospitals.

UpToDate Advanced supports appropriate treatment decisions with evidence-based clinical decision-making. It helps clinicians reduce inappropriate testing and treatments and provides guidance on when and which antibiotics should be prescribed.

Clinicians are also taking advantage of over 100 Lab Interpretation monographs to more accurately interpret abnormal lab results, helping to address another source of care variation.

In 2019, some of the top clinical pathways clinicians turned to UpToDate Advanced to include Atrial Fibrillation, Hyponatremia, Hypertension and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

The Veterans Health Administration, a part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and also the largest healthcare system in the United States, recently added UpToDate Advanced to its range of solutions from Wolters Kluwer.

UK Taylor & Francis introduces new online library collection and teaching facility aiming to help create a sustainable future - 12 Jul 2019

Academic publisher Taylor & Francis has introduced its new Sustainable Development Goals Online platform, featuring an online library of over 12,000 articles and chapters – covering some of the world’s biggest ongoing challenges – as well as a selection of materials to help lecturers teach sustainability and enhance students’ satisfaction with their institutions.

This new venture from Taylor & Francis provides a platform in which to engage higher education students, their tutors, and the researchers in their universities, in learning about and addressing the issues set out in the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – including poverty, inequality, climate change, pollution, and conflict.

Developed alongside various UN bodies, SDGO provides an interdisciplinary collection of digital content – including Taylor & Francis’ books and journals across all disciplines, themed around the SDGs –, as well as teaching and learning materials including presentations, videos, case studies, teaching guides, and lesson plans.

The aim of the new platform is to enable students and tutors to deliver the change they want throughout their careers and lives.

According to a global survey of 1,800 recent university graduates, 96% expect to be involved in sustainability in some way during their careers. 70% of respondents also believe that sustainability should be covered by their university course. Those students believe their university should teach them how to apply the principles of sustainability in their careers, equipping them to be effective advocates for the changes that they know needs to happen through their whole lifetime. And they are putting pressure on universities to meet their expectations.

This pressure means that the momentum for sustainable education is building across the world.

Harnessing the energy and brainpower of the student population behind the SDGs, Taylor & Francis is looking to help build the next generation of leaders who have sustainable development hard-wired into their sensibilities with its launch of SDGO.
