The rebel nurse handbook : inspirational stories by shift disruptors / Rebecca Love, Nancy Hanrahan, Antonette Montalvo, Mary Lou Ackerman, Faith Lawlor, Amy Rose Taylor, Elizabeth Toner.

This compilation of stories from more than 40 diverse nurse leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs portrays the winding and demanding paths that every nurse has braved in order to improve themselves, their patients’ care, and the healthcare of today. These Rebel Nurses push the boundaries of their profession by demanding a seat at the table of healthcare innovation, lobbying on Capitol Hill, expanding their horizons to fix the broken healthcare systems around the world, and valuing the humanity of the inevitable moments of life’s end. The inspiring innovation and entrepreneurship of these nurse leaders range from the incorporation of informatics or design communities and the implementation of artificial intelligence, to the creation of New York’s Silicon Valley or nationwide adolescent programs that focus on school shootings–consistently disrupting the status quo through implementing life-changing procedures and policies. Readers will be inspired to transform today’s era of healthcare by improving communities, implementing proactive care, and enhancing the environment of health and healing through research and policy application

 

Medical writing : a guide for clinicians, educators, and researchers / Robert B. Taylor.

This book is a clear and comprehensive guide that assists readers in translating observations, ideas, and research into articles, reports, or book chapters ready for publication. For both researchers and practicing physicians, skills in medical writing are essential. The text includes in depth instructions for writing and publishing: review articles, case reports, editorials and letters to the editor, book reviews, book chapters, reference books, research protocols, grant proposals, and research reports. This third edition is additionally fully updated to include the intricacies of medical writing and publishing today, with new coverage of: open access, pay to publish and predatory journals, peer review fraud, publication bias, parachute studies, public domain images, and phantom authors

 

Crony capitalism in US health care : anatomy of a dysfunctional system / Naresh Khatri.

This book employs a broad theoretical framework of crony capitalism to understand US health care system dysfunction. This framework has not been applied before in any serious manner to understand the shortcomings in the US health care system. Specifically, the book examines the role of seven key players using this framework – politicians/interest groups, pharmaceutical companies, private health insurers, hospitals/hospital networks, physicians, medical device manufacturers, and the American public. Crony capitalism is a destructive force and is rampant in US health care system, causing much waste, inefficiencies, and malaise in the system. Current efforts and initiatives, such as patient-centered medical homes and precision medicine, for improving/reforming the system are of mere academic interest and tantamount to taking aspirin to treat cancer. They do not even pretend to address the root cause of the problem, namely, crony capitalism. Offering prescriptions to fix the U.S. health care system based on a comprehensive diagnosis of the dysfunction, this book will be of interest to researchers, academics, policymakers, and students in the fields of health care management, public and non-profit management, health policy, administration, and economics, and political science

 

The conversation : how seeking and speaking the truth about racism can radically transform individuals and organizations / Robert Livingston.  

An essential tool for individuals, organizations, and communities of all sizes to jump-start dialogue on racism and bias and to transform well-intentioned statements on diversity into concrete actions-from a leading Harvard social psychologist. How can I become part of the solution? In the wake of the social unrest of 2020 and growing calls for racial justice, many business leaders and ordinary citizens are asking that very question. This book provides a compass for all those seeking to begin the work of anti-racism. Robert Livingston addresses three simple but profound questions: What is racism? Why should everyone be more concerned about it and can we do to eradicate it?

 

Transgender and gender diverse health care : the Fenway guide / editors, Alex S. Keuroghlian, Jennifer Potter, Sari L. Reisner.

Demand for state-of-the-art health care services for transgender and gender diverse communities is rapidly increasing. Transgender and Gender Diverse Health Care: The Fenway Guide offers a roadmap for clinicians to provide culturally responsive care that meets the primary, preventive, and specialty health needs of transgender and gender diverse adult patients. With the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information, this practical guide reviews new data on terminology, demographics, and epidemiology; highlights key aspects of gender identity emergence across the lifespan; and provides guidance on both hormonal and surgical gender affirmation. Applying a health-equity model of care, this invaluable resource offers a foundation for clinicians when addressing health needs of transgender and gender diverse communities

home Cycle of Success, J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library Out Of the Box Thinking Helps Case Report Get Accepted

Out Of the Box Thinking Helps Case Report Get Accepted

What do you do when you are having difficulties with journals accepting your case report? Talk to your librarian, of course.

Dr. Evan Prost, Associate Teaching Professor of Physical Therapy, and his team worked on a case report about the solution to one patient’s back pain, but were having difficulties getting the manuscript accepted. “Many journals don’t accept case reports, and those that do seem to expect them to resemble a randomized control trial, ” says Dr. Prost. After the three rejections, Dr. Prost consulted with Diane Johnson, having previously sought her assistance with authorship and copyright questions.

Once learning about the case report topic and what the team was looking for, Diane recommended the team try the BMJ Case Reports from the British Medical Journal. “She was able to think outside the box and recommended an alternative target, and it worked!” says Dr. Prost. The case report was published in December 2021: https://casereports.bmj.com/content/14/12/e245807

“We take so much for granted with the smooth operation of the library and its website. Remember that there are real people behind the scenes making that happen. Also, the live chat has promptly come to the rescue many times for me. Thank you!”

If you are looking to publish in the future and not sure where to start, be sure to check out the publishing toolkit or contact the Health Sciences Library to help get you started.

Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

If you would like to submit your own success story about how the libraries have helped your research and/or work, please use the Cycle of Success form.

home J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library, Resources and Services Increase your Research Impact through ORCiD

Increase your Research Impact through ORCiD

Your research is important and we want to help you ensure it is making an impact. ORCiD is a great way to start increasing your research impact with minimal effort.

What is ORCiD?

An ORCiD ID is a permanent unique identifier for researchers. Using your ORCID iD is more accurate and secure than a name: many people can have the same name but each ORCID iD is unique. They protect your unique scholarly identity and help you keep your publication record up-to-date with very little effort.

Why should you get an ORCiD ID?

ORCiD ID’s are permanent and will follow you throughout your entire career.

ORCiD is increasingly used by individuals (e.g. as a signature in emails) and systems (e.g. in Scopus, PubMed), enabling recognition and discoverability.

ORCiD automatically updates your profile from other systems – saving you time.

ORCiD is unique to you.

How to get an ORCID ID?

Here is a detailed explanation of how to get your ORCID started. Reach out to the library for help!
