SAGE Publishing and The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine announce publishing partnership
- 20 Jul 2018

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced a partnership with The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine to publish Gender and the Genome. A peer-reviewed, open access publication, the journal examines ways in which biological sex influences new science of the 21st century, particularly in the areas of technology and human life.

Comprising original research, reviews, and commentaries, Gender and the Genome covers topics such as sex-specific differences in genomic, cellular, tissue, and whole animal function; new life forms generated by synthetic biology; technological advances meant to enhance the function in humans; manufacture and usefulness of robotic devices; and commentaries by ethicists, theologians, anthropologists, epidemiologists, and sociologists/social scientists on the achievements of 21st century science.

The journal integrates the pivotal scientific developments of gender-specific medicine and the interpretation of the human genome. With an editorial board of renowned scholars from around the globe, Gender and the Genome engages the community of molecular biologists, engineers, ethicists, anthropologists, and legal experts in a dialogue about the nature and implications of 21st century technology.

The journal is also the official publication of the International Society for Gender Medicine and The Israeli Society for Gender-and Sex Conscious Medicine. It is supported in part by a grant from Isobel and Marvin Slomowitz.

Oxford University Press to publish two journals of the American Ornithological Society
- 19 Jul 2018

Academic publisher Oxford University Press and the American Ornithological Society have announced their new partnership to publish The Auk: Ornithological Advances and The Condor: Ornithological Applications, the society's two peer-reviewed, top-ranked, Journal Citation Reports indexed journals. The Auk and The Condor will serve as OUP's flagship titles in ornithology.

The Auk: Ornithological Advances aims to advance fundamental scientific knowledge by increasing the basic knowledge of bird species, both living and extinct, and the knowledge of broad biological concepts through studies of bird species. The Auk has been published continuously since 1884 and was recently recognised as one of the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the past 100 years. The journal holds an Impact Factor of 2.442, making it the third-ranked journal in the field of ornithology. The Auk holds the highest 5 Year Impact Factor of all ornithology journals, 2.438.

The Condor: Ornithological Applications publishes original research, syntheses, and assessments focusing on the application of scientific theory and methods to the conservation, management, and ecology of birds; and the application of ornithological knowledge to conservation and management policy and other issues of importance to society. The Condor has been published continuously since 1899. The journal holds an Impact Factor of 2.722, making it the top-ranked journal in the field of ornithology.

Wolters Kluwer addresses staff onboarding and practice-readiness challenges with innovative orientation curriculum tailored for clinical nurse educators
- 19 Jul 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced the launch of a comprehensive collection of evidence-based curriculum assets that help nursing professional development practitioners move their staff quickly through training to productivity by having the ability to rapidly deploy 'need to know' content. Lippincott® Blended Learning is designed to help clinical nurse educators mitigate the pressures created by high turnover rates and associated staffing costs, as well as the growing volume of new nurses entering the workforce or working in educational settings.

With demand for nurses already at its highest point and climbing steadily, clinical educators have been challenged in their efforts to create tailored evidence-based training programs fast enough to meet their facilities' needs. This is compounded by high turnover rates as more than 17 percent of newly-licensed Registered Nurses (RNs) leave their first nursing job within the first year and one-third leave within two years, according to a study by the RN Work Project. The need to dedicate most of their resources on orientation programs to keep pace with demand and turnover in the acute care setting also makes it exceedingly difficult for educators to focus on longer-term knowledge acquisition and continuing education (CE) for their nursing staffs.

Lippincott Blended Learning features a growing library of customisable, online lesson plans and assets including presentations, case studies, exams and checklists that support live instructor-led training. Its flexible platform supports a flipped classroom environment that optimises learning and knowledge retention and is designed to facilitate 'instructional scaffolding' that allows educators to build upon nurses' knowledge and grow their expertise over time.

The Lippincott Blended Learning library is a growing collection of more than 100 lessons on Patient Care Delivery, Quality and Safety, Leadership and Professionalism, and Management, as well as specialty nursing orientation topics covering Medical-Surgical, Critical Care, Perioperative, Obstetrics, and Emergency. As part of the Lippincott® Solutions product suite, Lippincott Blended Learning maps to Lippincott® Procedures, Lippincott® Advisor, and Lippincott® Professional Development Collection, supporting intentional curriculum and reinforcing knowledge retention at all points.

AMIA launches FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program
- 18 Jul 2018

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has announced the launch of the Fellow of AMIA (FAMIA) Applied Informatics Recognition Program. The new program aims to recognise members who apply informatics skills and knowledge within their professional setting, who have demonstrated professional achievement and leadership, and who have contributed to the betterment of AMIA.

The use of health IT and EHRs is now ubiquitous across US hospitals and physician offices. Clinical and translational research increasingly depend on high-throughput computing and vast quantities of data. Consumers increasingly use tools and apps on their personal computers and mobile devices to collect and manage health-related information.

The field of informatics began as a science, dedicated to evaluating the use of information and communications systems in clinical care. In the intervening 60 years, informatics has grown to include a wide array of professions that leverage IT and data systems as point-of-care interventions for patients, facilitators of clinical and health services research, and how data-driven discovery of all kinds must depend.

FAMIA was established in May 2018, following several months of deliberation by an interdisciplinary Advisory Group of AMIA members to define the FAMIA Eligibility Criteria. These deliberations reaffirmed that the FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program be inclusive - balancing the needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and others within clinical informatics, with the needs of public health, clinical researchers, and others who apply informatics to their practice.

FAMIA is open to any AMIA member who directly impacts and improves healthcare, biomedical research, public health, and personal health through the practice of informatics. FAMIA candidates must demonstrate their eligibility across the following core areas: Education; Certification; Applied Informatics Experience; Peer Recommendation; AMIA Membership; AMIA Engagement; and Future Commitments.

FAMIA recognises professionals who apply informatics skills and knowledge towards the goals of enhanced personal and population health, improved organisational performance and learning, and individual empowerment in their health, care, and research.

Applications for the inaugural class of FAMIA are now open. Notifications are expected to be sent in October with a formal announcement of the new class at the AMIA 2018 Annual Symposium in November. The class will be inducted at the AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference in May 2019.
