The Journal CHEST on CK Global

Please note that the journal CHEST® was added to CK Global on March 15, 2017. A 1-year embargo is in place for the CHEST journal, meaning that articles published within the past 12 months will be made available via abstract only on ClinicalKey.

CHEST; ISSN: 0012-3692; Package/Collection: Pulmonary Disease; https://www.clinicalkey.com/dura/browse/journalIssue/00123692

When viewing any CHEST article from the past 12 months, ClinicalKey users will see a message regarding the embargo of the full-text article. Articles published prior to that 12-month period will display as full text. Currently, full-text articles are available on ClinicalKey for CHEST issues dated January 2011 through December 2015.

Each month, as the new (most current) issue of abstracts is added, the 12-month-old issue of abstracts will be replaced with its corresponding issue of full-text articles.

Due to the embargo, customers who currently subscribe to CHEST will need to keep their subscriptions to have access to the full-text version of the articles available as abstracts-only on ClinicalKey. Users with a subscription to ClinicalKey and CHEST will be able to link out to the full-text articles from ClinicalKey via a link resolver.

April is National Autism Awareness Month!

Posted on: |

National Autism Awareness Month 2017 seeks, as always, to promote autism awareness, autism acceptance and to draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year.  In addition, this year the focus is on the rest of us – ensuring acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that results in true appreciation of the unique aspects of all people. We want to get one step closer to a society where those with ASDs are truly valued for their unique talents and gifts.

Also visit Autism Speaks to read inspiring stories and learn about the Global Autism Public Health Initiative (a nice tie in with National Public Health Week!).

Patient Safety Awareness Week

Posted on: |

The National Patient Safety Foundation initiative to increase awareness about patient safety among health professionals and the public (because everyone is a patient at some point) is ongoing, but culminates in Patient Safety Awareness Week March 12-18.   Health care consumers can get involved by spreading the word, advocating for patients that are friends and family, or sharing a memorial of someone who was harmed or died as a result of medical error.   Health care professionals can advocate at their institutions and use campaign materials to educate colleagues.

The Center for Patient Safety also has a handy toolkit of templates and materials to use in the patient care facilities.

AccessMedicine (for UB HUBNET patrons) offers some links with related content:

Pick Your Poison: new exhibit in the HSL Lobby

Posted on: |

Mind-altering drugs have been used throughout the history of America. While some remain socially acceptable, others are outlawed because of their toxic, and intoxicating, characteristics. These classifications have shifted at different times in history, and will continue to change. The six banner traveling exhibition Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures & Medical Prescriptions explores the factors that have shaped the changing definitions of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace.

A “Digital Gallery” offering a selection of digitized, historical texts from the History of Medicine Division’s diverse collections can be found as part of the online version of the exhibition.

Stop by and view the six panels through March 18, 2017.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the National Museum of American History.

One Health Day, November 3, 2016

Posted on: |

onehealthday‘One Health’  is a worldwide initiative – a comprehensive approach to preventing disease and saving lives by working with physicians, ecologists, and veterinarians to monitor and control public health threats. Learning how diseases spread among people, animals, and in the environment leads to proactive measures that reduce risk.   Learn more about the One Health approach used at the Centers for Disease Control      What are Zoonotic Diseases?

Today’s inaugural One Health Day will help focus global attention on the need for One Health interactions among researchers in both human and other animal areas to improve the lives of both.

The One Health Commission, centered in North Carolina, seeks to ‘Connect’ One Health Advocates,  to ‘Create’ networks and teams that work together across disciplines to ‘Educate’ about One Health and One Health issues.

Don’t miss the inspiring TED talk by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at UCLA Medical School, who provides a unique perspective on how human well-being, including mental health, can be improved by insights into animal health.

Don’t be surprised if your next medical checkup includes your veterinarian!
