Top Pediatric Article As Presented At SHM Annual Meetings 2015 and 2016


Keeping abreast of the latest literature in pediatric hospital medicine (PHM) is an ongoing challenge. As a service to its members engaged in PHM, the SHM annual meeting includes a “Top Articles” session to engage its members in high-impact articles. Although attendees are encouraged to read the full text of these articles from the links supplied, there is no mechanism by which members can assess their knowledge gained from these articles. This online activity will allow participants to review articles from past “Top Articles” talks in detail and assess the knowledge gained from this review.
