ABSTRACT:

Background
The demand for hiring pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) is strong. However, the number of newly educated PNPs has remained relatively flat during the past several years. Understanding the rationale and timing for the decision to pursue this profession is essential to having a positive impact on increasing the future workforce.

Methods
A mail survey of all new PNPs certified between January 2009 and July 2011 (N = 1040) was conducted.

Results
The response rate was 79.9%....

ABSTRACT:

Background 
Research networks formalize and institutionalize multi-site collaborations by establishing an infrastructure that enables network members to participate in research, propose new studies, and exploit study data to move the field forward. Although practice-based clinical research networks are now widespread, medical education research networks are rapidly emerging.

Aims 
In this article, we offer a definition of the medical education practice-based research network, a brief description of networks in existence in July...

ABSTRACT:

The domain for self-directed learning and/or self-improvement as a physician is complex, involving 10 competencies focused on learning and improvement around abilities that allow a pediatrician to become a more masterful doctor. The notions of internal motivation, desire to improve and do better, and self-determination are all at work in this domain. Internal motivation is hard to directly observe but can be inferred by longitudinal observation of behaviors. Malcolm Knowles1 first established the definition of self-directed learning as a process in “which individuals take...

ABSTRACT:

In this issue of Pediatrics Schumacher et al1 provide an analysis of the resource domains needed to implement the Pediatrics Milestones into residency training. While noting the promise of Pediatrics Milestones “for developing a valid . . . way to track residents’ development and provide a roadmap for their learning,” the authors question the ability of training programs to marshal necessary resources. Faculty raise similar concerns with variants of the following questions: Why change (from the current training and assessment system)? What is the evidence (that milestone...

ABSTRACT:

This supplement to the Pediatrics Milestone Project marks a milestone for the project itself. It allows us to archive the milestones' first iteration in our communities' peer review literature and facilitate our ability to acquire more meaningful information about how these milestones have impacted the community at large. By tracing citations to the individual articles representing each domain, its competencies, and their milestones over time, we will learn what the community is paying attention to and what they are not, as well as how others are improving upon and advancing this work. We...
