Clinical and translational research in global health and emergency care: a research agenda.
As policy-makers increasingly recognize emergency care to be a global health priority, the need for high-quality clinical and translational research in this area continues to grow. As part of the proceedings of the 2013 Academic Emergency Medicine consensus conference, this article discusses the imp...
Society for Academic Emergency Medicine's Global Emergency Medicine Academy: global health elective code of conduct.
Decreasing length of stay in the emergency department with a split emergency severity index 3 patient flow model.
There has been a steady increase in emergency department (ED) patient volume and wait times. The desire to maintain or decrease costs while improving throughput requires novel approaches to patient flow. The break-out session "Interventions to Improve the Timeliness of Emergency Care" at the June 20...
Non-emergency department interventions to reduce ED utilization: a systematic review.
We reviewed the literature on interventions in five categories: patient education, creation of additional non-ED capacity, managed care, prehospital diversion, and patient financial incentives. Studies written in English, with interventions administered outside of the ED, and a comparison group wher...
Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine (BEEM) rater scores correlate with publications' future citations.
The "BEEM" (best evidence in emergency medicine) rater scale was created for emergency physicians (EPs) to evaluate the physician-derived clinical relevance score of recently published, emergency medicine (EM)-related studies. BEEM therefore is designed to help make EPs aware of studies most likely...
Review of modeling approaches for emergency department patient flow and crowding research.
We compare and contrast these modeling methodologies, describe the fundamental assumptions each makes, and outline the potential applications and limitations for each with regard to usability in ED operations and in ED operations and crowding research. © 2011 by the Society for Acad...
The association of emergency department crowding and time to antibiotics in febrile neonates.
The objective was to assess the relationship between emergency department (ED) crowding and timeliness of antibiotic administration to neonates presenting with fever in a pediatric ED. This was a retrospective cohort study of febrile neonates (aged 0-30 days) evaluate...
Interventions to improve patient-centered care during times of emergency department crowding.
ACADEMIC EMERGENCY MEDICINE 2011; 18:1289-1294 © 2011 by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine ABSTRACT: Patient-centered care is defined by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) as care that is responsive to individual patient needs and values and that guides treatment decisions. T...
Risk for cost-related medication nonadherence among emergency department patients.
Risk for medication nonadherence due to cost concerns was identified in a quarter of nonemergent urban ED patients in our sample and was more likely to be reported by patients experiencing other economic and psychosocial risks. These findings indicate a need to include discussions about medicatio...
International Emergency Medicine: A Review of the Literature From 2009.
As the specialty of emergency medicine evolves in countries around the world, and as interest in international emergency medicine (IEM) grows within the United States, the IEM Literature Review Group recognizes an ongoing need for a high-quality, consolidated, and easily accessible e...
