The 2015-2016 epidemic of Zika virus in the Americas raised concerns about the range of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) in the United States. In response, the University of Wisconsin Medical Entomology Laboratory coordinated with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services in 2016 to conduct Aedes spp. surveillance and set up an oviposition trap (ovitrap) network operated by local public health partners across southern and western Wisconsin. During 2016, 916 ovitrap events were processed, but only Aedes triseriatu...

Kopernicki 19th century.
In the 60th anniversary of Chinese burn medicine, I am honored to review the development of Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery in the Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical College. The Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical college was relocated to Zunyi in 1969 to support the development of southwestern China and renamed Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical College. Only a few medical workers stayed in Zunyi when the State Council decided to reestablish Dalian Medical University in 1978. In the last 30 ...
College-bound young people experience sexual assault, both before and after they enter college. This study examines historical risk factors (experiences and exposures that occurred prior to college) for penetrative sexual assault (PSA) victimization since entering college.
Antimicrobial resistance merits surveillance because of its impact on quality health care. Past surveillance efforts in Wisconsin involved generation of a statewide antibiogram on the basis of antibiogram compilation. However, this modality of surveillance possesses limitations.
Patient "handoffs" or "sign outs" in medicine are widely recognized as highly vulnerable times for medical errors to occur. The Emergency Department (ED) has been identified as an environment where these transitions of care at shift changes are particularly high-risk due to a variety of factors, including frequent interruptions, which can further lead to errors in transfer of information. Our primary objective was to evaluate whether simple interventions could minimize interruptions during the sign out peri...

In 2017, our hospital was identified as a "High Outlier" for postoperative Clostridium difficile infections (CDI) in the American College of Surgeons NSQIP semi-annual report. The Department of Surgery initiated an CDI Task Force with representation from Surgery, Infectious Disease, Pharmacy, and Performance Services to analyze available data, identify opportunities for improvement, and implement strategies to reduce CDI.
Neonicotinoids are a popular and widely-used class of insecticides whose heavy usage rates and purported negative impacts on bees and other beneficial insects has led to questions about their mobility and accumulation in the environment. Neonicotinoid compounds are currently registered for over 140 different crop uses in the United States, with commercial growers continuing to rely heavily on neonicotinoid insecticides for the control of key insect pests through a combination of in-ground and foliar applica...
Surgeons in academic medical centers have traditionally taken a siloed approach to reducing postoperative complications. We initiated a project focusing on transparency and sharing of data in order to engage surgeons in collaborative quality improvement. Its key features were the development of a comprehensive Department Quality Dashboard and the creation of a Clinical Operations Council that oversaw quality. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of those efforts.

Wisconsin physicians are experiencing burnout at levels that surpass national benchmarks. The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society), in conjunction with the American Medical Association (AMA), conducted a survey of 1,165 Wisconsin physicians to assess burnout and its contributing factors. The results indicate that primary causes of physician burnout include utilization and interactions with electronic health records (EHR), lack of a supportive practice environment, the loss of autonomy, and poor work/life bal...
This study examines the prospective relationship between substance use during college and two outcomes: having definite plans to attend graduate school; and, among individuals with plans, enrolling in graduate school upon college graduation.
Since the late 19th century the ectoparasitic copepod Salmincola cf. edwardsii have been observed infecting brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis in Wisconsin streams. A perceived increase in the incidence of S. cf. edwardsii infection across the state and the observation of an S. edwardsii epizootic leading to declines in brook trout recruitment in Ash Creek, Wisconsin, have raised concerns about the extent to which S. edwardsii threaten other populations of brook trout in Wisconsin streams. In 2013-2017, broo...

In order to prepare a sufficient rural physician workforce, several state-funded programs are collaborating to monitor the number of rural graduate medical education (GME) opportunities available, assess the number of rural physicians needed to meaningfully reduce the shortage, and promote effective development and expansion of new and existing opportunities. Fro...
