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...
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...

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...
Effect of race and insurance on outcome of pediatric trauma.
After controlling for ISS and type of injury, mortality disparity exists for uninsured, African American, and Hispanic pediatric trauma patients. Although the reasons for this are unclear, efforts to decrease these disparities are needed....
Bedside ultrasound diagnosis of clavicle fractures in the pediatric emergency department.
Compared to radiographs, bedside US can accurately diagnose pediatric clavicle fractures. US causes no more discomfort than radiography when detecting clavicle fractures. Given US's advantage of no radiation, pediatric EPs should consider this application....
