APSA Education Day Evidence Reviews
Each year this committee presents evidence reviews during the APSA Annual Meeting.
Systematic reviews are summaries of the medical literature that are performed using a thorough literature search. Each review addresses a clearly formulated question. Note: Systematic reviews aid, but do not replace, sound clinical reasoning.
OEBP Literature Reviews
This committee prepares monthly reviews of the scientific literature which is of interest to the pediatric surgeon’s practice, but which may be outside the usual literature sources that the pediatric surgeon surveys. The selections are reviewed by the members of the OEBPC, but are not endorsed as definitive practice. These compilations are part of the committee’s goal to help identify best-practice and appropriate standards for clinical management of pediatric surgical disease. View the OEBP Literature Reviews
This committee is dedicated to helping APSA membership identify best-practice and appropriate standards for clinical management of pediatric surgical disease. Often, the best evidence may consist of opinions and experiences of our membership. Correctly quantifying these experiences and opinions is of critical importance. One of the committee’s responsibilities, as assigned by the APSA Board of Governors, is to examine and approve surveys requested for distribution to the general membership.
