Norcross, Georgia (PRWEB) June 24, 2016
EB Medicine presented its first-ever “Issue of the Year” awards today at the Clinical Decision Making in Emergency Medicine conference in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The awards honor the outstanding work of leading practitioners who have authored journal articles published in Emergency Medicine Practice and Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice.
“With this award, we recognize the efforts of authors who expand and enhance the body of evidence-based emergency medicine literature through their contributions to our journals,” says Andy Jagoda, MD, FACEP, Medical Director, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY and EB Medicine’s Editor-in-Chief.
“Dr. Jagoda and the other judges considered criteria such as timeliness, relevance in practice, scope of review and coverage, clarity, and writing style to determine the winners,” said Stephanie Williford, CEO of EB Medicine. “Readers also weighed in. We ask them how our journal issues change the way they practice, and each month hundreds of emergency physicians tell us how our articles have impacted their clinical practice. The authors of the winning issues were very highly commended by their peers.”
The inaugural “Issue of the Year” award-winning articles and authors were:
- “Intracerebral Hemorrhage In Anticoagulated Patients: Evidence-Based Emergency Department Management,” by Natalie Kreitzer, MD, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine; Fellow, Neurocritical Care and Neurovascular Emergencies, University of Cincinnati; and Opeolu Adeoye, MD, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Neurosurgery, University of Cincinnati
This article, published in the December 2015 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice, discusses recent advances in stroke care, including the urgent management of patients who are taking oral anticoagulant medications and experience bleeding in the brain.

This article, published in the June 2015 issue of Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice, covers approaches for delivering emergency care to pediatric patients with special needs, who often have medical devices, subtle presentations, and behavioral or psychiatric issues.
