ACCELERATING MEDICINES PARTNERSHIP (AMP) PDF Print E-mail
New Resources Announcements

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 00:00

Dr. Frances Collins, NIH Director, recently announced the launching of the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP) which will “strive to identify better targets so we can develop better drugs at a faster pace.” Participants include the NIH, Foundation for the NIH, 10 biopharmaceutical firms (AbbVie, Biogen Idec, Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Lilly, Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi, Takeda) and several non-profit organizations and patient-advocacy groups (Alzheimer’s Association, American Diabetes Association, Lupus Foundation of America, Foundation for the NIH, Geoffrey Beene Foundation, PhRMA, Rheumatology Research Foundation, USAgainstAlzheimer’s).

The AMP will begin by investing $230 million in pilot projects in three disease areas:

Alzheimer’s disease
Type 2 Diabetes
Autoimmune Disorders (Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis)

The cost will be shared 50% by NIH and private industry. The 3-5 year pilot projects will set the stage for broadening AMP to other diseases and conditions. This joint collaboration will take advantage of “recent advances in genomics, proteomics, imaging, and other technologies which have led to the discovery of more than a thousand risk factors for common diseases—biological changes that ought to hold promise as targets for drugs,” stated Dr. Collins in a press conference on February 4th, at Washington, DC.

New! Spanish Edition of the Desk Reference to the Diagnostic Criteria from DSM-5 PDF Print E-mail
New Resources Announcements
Written by Carmen Bou-Crick   
Monday, 17 February 2014 00:00

The Spanish edition of the Desk Reference to the Diagnostic Criteria from DSM-5™ (Guia de Consulta de los Criterios Diagnósticos del DSM-5™) is now available as a PDF at the Psychiatry Online DSM Library. This new publication may also be accessed by going directly to the DSM Library collection on PsychiatryOnline, and through the Calder Library Website eDatabases tab. DSM-5 is the latest edition (2013) of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, used by psychiatrists and psychologists to diagnose patients who suffer from mental illness.

The Spanish Edition of the Desk Reference should be used as a practical guide for Spanish-speakers in conjunction with the English version of DSM-5. Both publications contain the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM Codes for each of the mental disorders. The Spanish Edition has two sections: Section 1 has basic concepts of the DSM-5 and instructions on how to use the manual and Section 2 has the list of all the diagnostic criteria with the codes.

Also in the DSM Library are the DSM-5 Handbook of Differential Diagnosis and DSM-5 Clinical Cases. The DSM-5 Handbook of Differential Diagnosis provides a six-step diagnostic framework, decision trees, and differential diagnosis tables (one for each of the most important DSM-5 disorders) which “should improve clinicians’ skills in formulating a comprehensive differential diagnosis by presenting the problem from a number of different perspectives.” The DSM-5 Clinical Cases book features 103 cases “chosen to demonstrate one or more DSM-5 diagnoses and each of the cases is followed by a short diagnostic discussion.” The cases were based on actual patients. According to the authors, “both books can be used by people outside the mental health field, although both books emphasize that seasoned clinical judgment is often required to differentiate the normal from the pathological in regard to the making of an overall diagnosis, the assessment of specific diagnostic criteria, and the recognition of important comorbidities.” - Quoted from PsychiatryOnline

NEW! UpToDate Graphics Search PDF Print E-mail
New Resources Announcements
Written by Carmen Bou-Crick   
Monday, 27 January 2014 00:00

UpToDate now offers the option of searching an extensive library of high-quality graphics, including more than 27,000 pictures, tables, illustrations, diagrams, graphs, algorithms and videos, without using a separate search engine.  After entering the search term(s)—it can be a disease, symptom, laboratory abnormality, procedure, or drug; click on the Graphics link to quickly and easily search the database for graphics related to that topic. For example, in a search for “anemia,” results include a series of algorithms for treatment of anemia, pictures of anemia-induced skin conditions, pictures of blood smears, radiographs and angiographs, multiples graphs comparing treatments, tables of risk factors, practice guidelines, and useful information that will enhance the clinician’s ability to diagnose and treat patients.  Graphics results are presented as thumbnails with titles (see below).  Click on any thumbnail to enlarge the image.  Once the image is enlarged, it can be sent by email, printed, or exported to MS PowerPoint (PPT), making this resource useful for enhancing instructional materials (when “Export” is selected the specific image is converted into a fully-referenced PPT slide).  Each graphic also provides references and links to related topics of interest (look for “Appears in Topics”).

To learn more about conducting a Graphics Search, sharing information with patients or colleagues, and exporting graphics to a presentation, watch a short video tutorial that can be found at: www.uptodate.com/home/help-demo.

Please do not hesitate to contact a Reference Librarian at Calder Library for assistance with UpToDate.  You may contact us by phone at 305-243-6648 or by email at reference@med.miami.edu.

The 12th Biennial Gross Lecture PDF Print E-mail
Calder in the Community
Written by Kelsa Bartley   
Wednesday, 11 December 2013 15:36

The Louis Calder Memorial Library hosted the 12th Biennial Ralph H. and Ruth F. Gross Lecture on November 21, 2013.  Featured speaker Bernd A. Wollschlaeger, M.D, a German-born Jewish physician, delivered his deeply personal perspective on the anatomy of hate.  The son of a German tank commander who received the Iron Cross from Adolph Hitler personally, Dr. Wollschlaeger described his journey of emotional and spiritual struggle with the Nazi legacy of hate and the shadow it cast over his family and all of Germany.  His desire to live a more meaningful life led to him converting to Judaism, immigrating to Israel, and serving in the Israel Defense Forces as a Medical Officer.  He eventually moved to the United States to complete his medical training.  Now practicing in Aventura, he is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Miami and Past President of the Dade County Medical Association and the Florida Society of Addiction Medicine.  In 2012, Dr. Wollschlaeger was honored as the Family Doctor of the Year by the Florida Academy of Family Physicians.

“For me, hatred against other people has a very personal meaning,” said Dr. Wollschlaeger, speaking about the origins of hate and how we overcome it. “But I have learned that we all think in stereotypes, because our ancestors long ago had to put people in categories quickly in order to avoid danger.  Today, that type of thinking can lead to hatred against Jews or Muslims, blacks or whites.  As physicians, we have a moral responsibility to make a conscious effort to overcome our personal biases and treat everyone in an equal manner.”

Dr. Mary Moore, Librarian Professor and Chair of the Department of Health Informatics, welcomed the more than 150 attendees and thanked the Gross family members for their support. Patricia Bergman, one of the daughters of Ralph H. and Ruth F. Gross, recommended Dr. Wollschlaeger as this year’s speaker. She attended the event with her sister, Carol Clarkson. The Ralph H. and Ruth F. Gross endowment, made to the Calder Library by Mrs. Gross in memory of her husband, sponsors the event, which was hosted by the Department of Health Informatics, the Medical Faculty Council, Calder Library, and the Miller School’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.
