SPM Board Retreat
A group of 19 SPM members and Board members spent an entire Saturday in late October reviewing the impressive list of successes SPM has had in 2017, the partial successes where we want to build on our good start, and working on plans for the challenges we face.

It is impossible to capture all the insights and perspectives of an 8 hour retreat in this article, but some of the highlights include the following. Freshest in everyone’s mind was the i...

Conclusions: Nearly 1 out of 8 parents presenting to an urban pediatric ED reported using the Internet in the 24 hours prior to the ED visit. Among privately insured, at least one in 5 parents reported using the Internet prior to visiting the ED. Web-based medical information often influences decision making regarding ED utilization. Pediatric providers should provide parents with recommendations for high-quality sources of health information available on the Internet.
