Can’t get enough of Bubble Wrap? The 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 discover relevant or interesting articles for your local journal club or simply help you to keep an finger on the pulse of paediatric research.
This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Do vaccine-hesitant parents think that toxins in vaccines caused their children’s developmental delays?’, ‘What is the community use of paracetamol and ibuprofen in children with fever?’, ‘Is it safe to abandon prefeed gastric aspiration in preterms?’, ‘Is dissatisfaction with school toilets associated with bladder dysfunction?’ and ‘Why has the use of ICU in bronchiolitis doubled between 2010-2019?’.
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
