Uno dei principali obiettivi della SIMEU è la crescita professionale del Medici d’Urgenza e del Territorio. In questa sezione sono raccolti i più sigificativi articoli per il settore dell’Emergenza, selezionati da 5 riviste internazionali di rilevante "impact factor".

Dall’aprile 2010 verranno presentati e raccolti una cartella dedicata, i migliori articoli full-text pubblicati su alcune delle più prestigiose riviste internazionali.

L’iniziativa viene ad affiancare il servizio di journal-watching e report "Novità in Urgenza" già attivo a cura dei colleghi C. Arrigo, A. Fabbri, M. Fallani, R. Ferrari, L. Iaboli, R. Previati.

La selezione degli articoli verrà effettuata sulle seguenti riviste:
Critical Care Medicine (a cura di F. Schiraldi)
Journal of Trauma (a cura di A. Fabbri)
New England Journal of Medicine (a cura di M. Fallani)
Annals of Emergency Medicine (a cura di F. De Iaco )
Assistenza Infermieristica e Ricerca (a cura di L. Gelati)

L’accesso alla cartella "Articoli Selezionati" è riservato esclusivamente ai soci SIMEU.
