Can’t get enough of Bubble Wrap? The Bubble Wrap Plus is branching out and will be bringing great literature goodness to you every mid month! Bubble Wrap Plus is a monthly paediatric journal club reading list from Anke Raaijmakers working with Professor Jaan Toelen & his team of the University Hospitals in Leuven. This comprehensive list is developed from 34 journals, including major and subspecialty paediatric journals. We suggest this list can help you out relevant or interesting articles for your local journal club or simply to keep an finger on the pulse of paediatric research.
This edition of Bubble Wrap Plus is a bumper one – featuring both April & May’s journal articles.
April features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Does paracetamol accelerate the closure of PDA?’, ‘What is the value of imaging in concussion?’ and ‘Does celiac disease lead to more fractures in children?’
May features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Do infants born via CS end up with more pathogenic bacteriae in their gut?’, ‘Is melatonin a good treatment for sleeping disorders in children?’ and ‘How can we efficiently reduce unnecessary tests for children with bronchiolitis?’ There are also some interesting papers on the topic of teaching and education.
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
