Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 101, 22.More infoThe number of systematic reviews (SRs) published continues to grow, and the methodology of evidence synthesis has been adopted in many fields outside of its traditional health sciences origins. SRs are now published in fields as wide ranging as business, environmental science, education, and engineering; however, there is little research looking at the nature and prevalence of non-health sciences systematic reviews (non-HSSRs). In this study, a large sample from the Scopus database was used as the basis for analyzing SRs published outside the health sciences. To map the current state of non-HSSRs, their characteristics were investigated and the subject areas publishing them determined. The results showed that a majority of the non-HSSRs examined were lacking at least one characteristic commonly expected in health sciences systematic review (HSSRs) methodology. The broad subject areas publishing non-HSSRs fall mostly within the social sciences and physical sciences.

Journal of Clinical Nursing, 31(17-18), 2418-2436.More infoAims and ObjectivesThe objectives of this review are to determine what is currently known about older adults' perceptions of their own fall risk in the hospital and associated factors and explore how perceived fall risk in the hospital is assessed. Every year, up to one million patients suffer an accidental fall in the hospital. Despite research efforts during the last decade, inpatient fall rates have not significantly decreased, and about one third of inpatient falls result in injuries. Limited evidence suggests that assessing hospitalised patients' perceptions of their fall risk and engaging them in their own fall prevention can reduce inpatient falls.

Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, 27(4), 271-282. doi:10.1177/1078390320939159More infoBACKGROUND: Despite wide-spread use, telepsychiatry use among psychiatric mental health advanced practice nurse practitioners (PMH APRNs) has not been systematically explored in the literature. AIMS: Systematically review the PMH APRN usage of live-time, synchronous telepsychiatry including audiovisual teleconferencing technology. METHOD: A comprehensive, systematic search was performed with no publication date restriction across CINAHL, the Cochrane Library, Embase, Google Scholar, PsycINFO, PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science on July 30, 2019, by a medical librarian. Each citation was blinded and independently reviewed by three reviewers, and consensus was reached for inclusion. Eligible articles were peer-reviewed research or quality improvement articles available in full-text, written in English, including real-time, synchronous, audiovisual telepsychiatry services with PMH APRN providers. Discussion articles and literature reviews were excluded. Article quality and bias were assessed using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) assessment tool. RESULTS: The search yielded a total of 342 articles, and only nine articles met full inclusion criteria. Overall, risk of bias was high in all studies, and the GRADE rating consisted of three "very low," five "low," and one "medium" quality article. However, considering the collectively positive outcomes from PMH APRN telepsychiatry use, the overall GRADE recommendation was to "probably do it" for seven studies and "do it" for two studies. CONCLUSIONS: Though existent literature is low quality and sparse, evidence supports that PMH APRNs can feasibly and successfully provide telepsychiatry services across a wide range of demographic patients and locations. PMH APRNs should contribute more original evidence to guide telepsychiatry implementation and adoption as the service expands.

American Journal of Men's Health, 12(1), 52-63. doi:10.1177/1557988315624509More infoResearch reports that perceived discrimination is positively associated with depressive symptoms. The literature is limited when examining this relationship among Black men. This meta-analysis systematically examines the current literature and investigates the relationship of perceived discrimination on depressive symptoms among Black men residing in the United States. Using a random-effects model, study findings indicate a positive association between perceived discrimination and depressive symptoms among Black men ( r = .29). Several potential moderators were also examined in this study; however, there were no significant moderation effects detected. Recommendations and implications for future research and practice are discussed.

A Meta-Analysis to Determine the Impact of Restaurant Menu Labeling on Calories and Nutrients (Ordered or Consumed) in U.S. Adults. Nutrients, 9(10).More infoA systematic review and meta-analysis determined the effect of restaurant menu labeling on calories and nutrients chosen in laboratory and away-from-home settings in U.S. adults. Cochrane-based criteria adherent, peer-reviewed study designs conducted and published in the English language from 1950 to 2014 were collected in 2015, analyzed in 2016, and used to evaluate the effect of nutrition labeling on calories and nutrients ordered or consumed. Before and after menu labeling outcomes were used to determine weighted mean differences in calories, saturated fat, total fat, carbohydrate, and sodium ordered/consumed which were pooled across studies using random effects modeling. Stratified analysis for laboratory and away-from-home settings were also completed. Menu labeling resulted in no significant change in reported calories ordered/consumed in studies with full criteria adherence, nor the 14 studies analyzed with ≤1 unmet criteria, nor for change in total ordered carbohydrate, fat, and saturated fat (three studies) or ordered or consumed sodium (four studies). A significant reduction of 115.2 calories ordered/consumed in laboratory settings was determined when analyses were stratified by study setting. Menu labeling away-from-home did not result in change in quantity or quality, specifically for carbohydrates, total fat, saturated fat, or sodium, of calories consumed among U.S. adults.

In talking to other librarians with science and health care liaison positions, I’ve been fascinated by some of the innovative methods they use in instruction, as well as by how long we have been doing instruction as a profession. I’d like to present some aspects of library instruction and information literacy as it is being practiced in academic libraries – I think you’ll find applications for many other venues, perhaps for your own, in these articles. I appreciate the information shared herein and hope that you enjoy it, too!

Phoenix, Arizona.More infoOver the past few decades systematic reviews have become a major component of the biomedical research literature landscape. While systematic reviews were originally developed for medicine and its related fields, they are increasingly published in other disciplines. Our research questions are,“What disciplines outside of the health sciences are adopting systematic reviews as a research method? What implications may this have for health sciences librarianship?”
- Slebodnik, M. B., Pardon, K., & Hermer, J. (2018, June). Investigating systematic reviews outside health sciences. American Library Association Annual Conference. New Orleans, LA: American Library Association.More infoOriginally developed for medicine and related fields in support of evidence-based practice, systematic reviews (SRs) are now published in other fields. We investigated non-health sciences disciplines that are publishing systematic reviews. We searched the Scopus database for articles with “systematic review*” in the title or abstract. Results were limited to review articles. Articles were examined by reviewers to determine if they a) were classified as SRs by the authors, b) written in English and c) addressed a non-health sciences topic. We reconciled differences for articles on which there was not initial consensus, and grouped remaining articles according to Scopus subject areas. Our filtered result set included 952 self-described systematic reviews outside the health science disciplines. We then examined a random sample of 90 articles and compared each article's methodology to health sciences systematic review criteria. Our results show that the non-health science disciplines with the highest number of self described systematic reviews appear to be the social sciences, environmental science, business, computer science and engineering. Details about inclusion/exclusion criteria and the databases used were often included. A majority of our sample did not clearly describe the search strategy or use published SR protocols as a basis for methodology. Librarians were consulted in only 3 of 90 articles we examined.

American Telemedicine Association Annual Conference. Chicago, Illinois: American Telemedicine Association.More infoEstimates suggest that one in five Americans ages 12 and older are suffering from mental illness, yet less than half receive treatment (1,2). One modality that increases mental health care access and treatment is telepsychiatry, which has demonstrated clinical effectiveness and satisfaction among providers and patients (3). Specifically, telepsychiatry use among psychiatric mental health advanced practice nurses (PMH APRNs)* does not have systematic exploration. Thus, this study is the first to systematically review PMH APRN’s role and usage of synchronous telepsychiatry.
