After providing an introduction to the principles of scholarship and describing questions that the Guide addresses, the authors offer a(More)
PURPOSE Despite widespread use of mobile technology in medical education, medical students' use of mobile technology for clinical decision support and learning is not well understood. Three key questions were explored in this extensive mixed methods study: 1) how medical students used mobile technology in the care of patients, 2) the mobile applications(More)
INTRODUCTION Since 1977, many systematic reviews have asked 2 fundamental questions: (1) Does CME improve physician performance and patient health outcomes? and (2) What are the mechanisms of action that lead to positive changes in these outcomes? The article's purpose is to synthesize the systematic review literature about CME effectiveness published since(More)
Five quinolone antimicrobic agents were tested to determine the mean inhibitory concentration (MIC) of each of 17 clinical strains of Bordetella pertussis by the agar dilution method. Ciprofloxacin demonstrated the best in vitro activity with an MIC90 of 0.06 microgram/ml. Norfloxacin, ofloxacin and enoxacin were also highly active with MIC90s of 0.25,(More)
Librarians are increasingly moving out of the library and into the wider university setting as patrons spend more time seeking information online and less time visiting the library. The move to embed librarians in colleges, departments, or customer groups has been going on for some time but has recently received more attention as libraries work to find new(More)

Roxithromycin is a novel oxime ether derivative of erythromycin. Previous studies have demonstrated similar in-vitro activity for roxithromycin and erythromycin. Roxithromycin has improved pharmacokinetic properties and may be a useful alternative agent for infections where erythromycin is indicated. We compared the efficacy and toxicity of roxithromycin(More)
