BMC series expands into engineering, launches new journal - BMC Biomedical Engineering
- 14 Jun 2018

BMC Biomedical Engineering, a new open access, peer-reviewed journal is now open for submissions and with it the BMC series enters for the first time a new subject area: engineering. This is the first of two newly launched journals in the BMC series.

2018 has been declared as the 'Year of Engineering' by the UK government, an initiative that has seen wide support by hundreds of national and international organisations. Biomedical engineering is a rapidly growing field that creates lasting impact on global health and society. It has existed for many centuries, in a mixture of forms, but it wasn't until the twentieth century when major discoveries in the physical sciences enabled it to evolve exponentially. The invention of the electrocardiograph by William Einthoven (Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1924) in the start of the century changed the course of the diagnosis and treatment for the cardiovascular system.

BMC Biomedical Engineering will provide the biomedical engineering community with a global open access venue for robust research with the ultimate goal of improving human health, by combining tools and methods from biology and medicine with mathematics, physical sciences and engineering.

As a member of the BMC series, the ethos of BMC Biomedical Engineering is open and inclusive, and the journal does not make editorial decisions on the basis of the interest of a study or its likely impact. Submissions are rigorously peer reviewed to assess scientific validity and published articles will become freely available to all readers irrespective of their location.

BMC Biomedical Engineering will complement and strengthen the open access portfolio of the BMC series, which currently focuses on biology and medicine, and expand it into engineering. Its multidisciplinary attributes allow it to collaborate with existing sister BMC series titles that represent established medical communities such as BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, BMC Medical Imaging or BMC Cancer, and make research visible to a wide network of relevant clinical audiences (for example, via cross-journal special issues).

Unbound Medicine and APSA launch ExPERT CME platform
- 13 Jun 2018

Unbound Medicine, a provider of knowledge management solutions for healthcare, and the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA), the nation's largest professional organisation serving the pediatric surgical specialty, has launched the Continuing Medical Education (CME) platform for pediatric surgeons. Dubbed ExPERT - the Exam-based Pediatric surgery Educational Reference Tool - this resource allows surgeons to both stay up to date and obtain Continuous Certification credits anytime, anywhere on their device of choice.

Traditionally, surgeons met continuing education requirements by attending conferences and lectures. Studies have shown, however, that improved learning occurs when it is more active, episodic and related to clinical scenarios faced in daily practice. With this in mind, ExPERT was developed as a daily knowledge companion - providing continuing education opportunities at the same time as answering daily clinical questions.

A visionary team of APSA leaders working with experts from Unbound Medicine developed the new approach to surgical knowledge management. APSA member surgeons now author evidence-based, media-rich assessment content in uPub - Unbound's online authoring and content management system. After online editing and digital approval by an APSA Continuing Education Committee, the content is dynamically integrated with other content and published in the APSA Pediatric Surgery Library.

Updated regularly, ExPERT questions and assessments are augmented by surgical images, videos, and the underlying journal literature. ExPERT can be purchased separately or part of a suite in the APSA Pediatric Surgery Library. Annual meeting attendance CME is also managed within the same platform.

Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology launches new section - Developmental Epigenetics
- 12 Jun 2018

Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology has announced the launch of a new section, Developmental Epigenetics. The section is led by Professor Rosalind M John from Cardiff University, UK, and Professor Claire Rougeulle from Paris Diderot University, France.

With this new section, Professor John and Professor Rougeulle aim to broadcast fundamental discoveries on the epigenetic processes and mechanisms involved in programming developmental trajectories, and on the consequences of unprogrammed rewiring of the epigenetic network in disease.

Both Chief Editors hope that greater exposure of the scientific work published within this section will facilitate fruitful discussion and collaboration between epigeneticists of various horizons and help to reunify conflicting interpretation of epigenetics.

With the expertise of an outstanding international editorial board, the section will ensure that high-quality research is openly accessible and easily disseminated to a broader audience. Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology's newest section is now open for high-quality article submissions and Research Topic proposals.

Wolters Kluwer Health launches Lippincott Clinical Experiences to prepare nursing students for population health nursing
- 08 Jun 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced the launch of Lippincott Clinical Experiences: Community, Public, and Population Health Nursing to prepare nursing students for practice in the burgeoning field of population health using an innovative virtual community with realistic, hands-on clinical experiences. Designed to be integrated in nursing programs, Lippincott Clinical Experiences delivers a wide-ranging variety of clinical encounters to help students gain proficiency in practice environments that are logistically challenging to simulate, such as natural disaster sites, domestic violence shelters or correctional facilities. The program can also help supplement clinical time or missed clinicals.

In response to emerging integrated wellness models, nursing programs have been called on to adapt and expand population health curricula. At the same time, nursing schools are challenged with planning clinical activities in a variety of non-hospital settings where students can gain a comprehensive understanding of the multifaceted nature of community and public health nursing. In many cases, schools are unable to expose students to enough settings, situations, and populations-in both urban and rural locales-to effectively demonstrate the breadth and depth of population health nursing. In other instances, legal, safety, and ethical issues prevent students from clinical experiences that are too sensitive, dangerous, rarely occurring, or with vulnerable populations.

The innovative new resource is authored by Jone Tiffany, DNP, MA, RNC-OB, CNE, and Barbara A. Hoglund, EdD, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CNE-both nurse educators with numerous publishing credits on the use of simulated clinical experiences in community and public health curriculum. Lippincott Clinical Experiences can be put toward clinical hours, assigned as homework, and/or used with interactive classroom activities. The included clinicals are diverse, ranging from public health nursing situations (e.g., WIC, screenings, and inter-professional care conferences) and community assessment, to intimate partner violence and elder abuse, to disaster assessment, response, and post-disaster recovery. Also featured are clinicals focused on home safety and the aging adult; case management/transitions of care in a primary care clinic; correctional facility nursing; gun violence, bullying and teen homelessness; health policy and social justice; global response to natural disasters and infectious diseases; and much more. Lippincott Clinical Experiences offers an unmatched level of clinical diversity to help students expand their mindset beyond nurse-client to a broader population health perspective.
