    Collaboration is Key: Advancing the Academic Health Sciences Library's Mission Through Campus Partnerships Within Library Spaces
    (Chandos Publishing, 2019) Jaguszewski, Janice M.; McGuire, Lisa A.
    Academic health sciences libraries are actively engaged with their health professions faculty and administrators to advance teaching, learning, and research. This chapter offers strategies for success when cultivating and working with partners, using the Health Sciences Libraries partnership model and resulting in a new suite of space-enabled services (e.g. Faculty Commons, Virtual & Augmented Reality Studio, 1:Button Studio, Visualization Lab, Wangensteen Historical Library, and Innovation Space). It also discusses impact and lessons learned.

    Rethinking How to Create a Health Disparity Tutorial
    (Medical Library Association, 2011-05) McGuire, Lisa A
    This poster describes the creation of an online tutorial on how to research a health disparity topic. Contents include: defining health disparities, introduction to the MEDLINE database and the PubMed interface, and identification of medical subject headings that are useful in researching health disparities in the published journal literature.

    Frequency of Nonodontogenic Pain after Endodontic Therapy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
    (Elsevier, 2010-09) Nixdorf, DR; Moana-Filho, EJ; Law, AS; McGuire, LA; Hodges, JS; John, MT
    INTRODUCTION: Little is known about ill-defined pain that persists after endodontic procedures, including an estimate of the problem's magnitude. We conducted a systematic review of prospective studies that reported the frequency of nonodontogenic pain in patients who had undergone endodontic procedures. METHODS: Nonodontogenic pain was defined as dentoalveolar pain present for 6 months or more after endodontic treatment without evidence of dental pathology. Endodontic procedures reviewed were nonsurgical root canal treatment, retreatment, and surgical root canal treatment. Studies were searched in four databases electronically, complemented by hand searching. A summary estimate of nonodontogenic tooth pain frequency was derived using random-effects meta-analysis. RESULTS: Of 770 articles retrieved and reviewed, 10 met inclusion criteria, and nine had data on both odontogenic and nonodontogenic causes of pain. A total of 3,343 teeth were enrolled within the included studies and 1,125 had follow-up information regarding pain status. We identified 48 teeth with nonodontogenic pain and estimated a 3.4% (95% confidence interval, 1.4%-5.5%) frequency of occurrence. In nine articles containing data regarding both odontogenic and nonodontogenic causes of tooth pain, 56% (44/78) of all cases were thought to have a nonodontogenic cause. CONCLUSIONS: Nonodontogenic pain is not an uncommon outcome after root canal therapy and may represent half of all cases of persistent tooth pain. These findings have implications for the diagnosis and treatment of painful teeth that were previously root canal treated because therapy directed at the tooth in question would not be expected to resolve nonodontogenic pain.

    Frequency of persistent tooth pain after root canal therapy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
    (Elsevier, 2010-02) Nixdorf, DR; Moana-Filho, EJ; Law, AS; McGuire, LA; Hodges, JS; John, MT
    Little is known about the frequency of persistent pain after endodontic procedures even though pain is a core patient-oriented outcome. We estimated the frequency of persistent pain, regardless of etiology, after endodontic treatment. METHODS: Persistent tooth pain was defined as pain present > or = 6 months after endodontic treatment. Endodontic procedures included in the review were pulpectomy, nonsurgical root canal treatment, surgical root canal treatment, and retreatment. Four databases were searched electronically complemented by hand searching. Two independent reviewers determined eligibility, abstracted data, and assessed study quality. A summary estimate of persistent all-cause tooth pain frequency was established by using a random-effects meta-analysis. Using subgroup analyses, we explored the influence of treatment approach (surgical/nonsurgical), longitudinal study design (prospective/retrospective), follow-up rate, follow-up duration, initial treatment versus retreatment, and quality of reporting (Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology rankings) on the pain frequency estimate. RESULTS: Of 770 articles retrieved and reviewed, 26 met inclusion criteria. A total of 5,777 teeth were enrolled, and 2,996 had follow-up information regarding pain status. We identified 168 teeth with pain and derived a frequency of 5.3% (95% confidence interval, 3.5%-7.2%, p < 0.001) for persistent all-cause tooth pain. High and statistically significant heterogeneity among studies (I2 = 80%) was present. In subgroup analysis, prospective studies had a higher pain frequency (7.6%) than retrospectives studies did (0.9%). Quality of study reporting was identified as the most influential reason for study heterogeneity. CONCLUSIONS: The frequency of all-cause persistent tooth pain after endodontic procedures was estimated to be 5.3%, with higher report quality studies suggesting >7%.

    Planning for a pandemic influenza outbreak: roles for librarian liaisons in emergency delivery of educational programs
    (Haworth, 2007) McGuire, Lisa
    In February 2006, two librarians at the University of Minnesota’s Bio-Medical Library were asked to participate in a task force at the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health (SPH). The charge from the dean of SPH was to determine how the school could continue to deliver its educational programs in the event of a pandemic influenza outbreak. This paper will outline the work of the task force, discuss its recommendations, and offer ideas on how other librarians can work with their liaison areas to plan for a similar project.

    Purchase/reject decision factors of computer-assisted instruction programs by health sciences faculty.
    (MC Journal, 1999) McGuire, Lisa; Littleton, Dawn; Mueller, Mary
    The University of Minnesota Bio-Medical Library's education technology program purchases computer-assisted instruction (CAI) software for curriculum support of health sciences courses. CAI purchase decisions are made after preview by a faculty member and a librarian. Purchased software is housed in the Core Collection and Reserve locations within the library. At the library, 77 CAI programs were previewed for purchase consideration between 1996-1998. Analysis of the comments made by health sciences faculty during the preview process suggests some of the factors used when choosing a CAI title for curriculum support.

    Chronic pain: information resources on the internet
    (Haworth, 2010-01) McGuire, Lisa A
    Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than one month after onset, or pain that recurs after onset of injury or illness. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain conditions, whether from diseases such as diabetes or HIV infection, or as a result from injured nerves, bones, or other tissues. The socioeconomic burden of chronic pain is immense. Estimates of the economic impact alone from healthcare expenses, lost productivity, and lost wages are $100 billion annually. This article provides a general overview of non-cancer causes of chronic pain symptoms, conditions, disease burden, and treatments. Authoritative web sites for chronic pain information and patient resources are included.
