Public health and medicolegal implications related to medical travel deserve attention.

G. read it as a tribute to his father.
Although child maltreatment medical research has benefited from several multi-center studies, the new specialty of child abuse pediatrics has not had a sustainable network capable of pursuing multiple, prospective, clinically-oriented studies. The Child Abuse Pediatrics Network (CAPNET) is a new multi-center research network dedicated to child maltreatment medical research. In order to establish a relevant, practical research agenda, we conducted a modified Delphi process to determine the topic areas with h...

The purpose of this study was to create a system-wide education program in a large academic medical center to increase exposure and understanding of the evidence-based practice (EBP) process with multidisciplinary healthcare professionals. We also hoped to increase their confidence in utilizing and implementing EBP at the bedside. Although our approach to educating professional staff on EBP provided initial benefits, holding the gains over a 1-year period proved to be difficult.
