Pediatric severe sepsis in U.S. children's hospitals.
The objective of this study was to compare epidemiological trends in the prevalence, resource utilization, and mortality of pediatric patients with severe sepsis and septic shock. The researchers found that the prevalence of severe sepsis/septic shock has increased in the studied U.S. children’s hospitals between 2004 and 2012, whereas resource utilization and mortality have decreased over that time period.

Stimulated recall methodology for assessing work system barriers and facilitators in family-centered rounds in a pediatric hospital.
In this study, the researchers implemented and evaluated the use of a stimulated recall methodology for collective confrontation in the context of family-centered rounds (FCRs). They concluded that their study demonstrated the value of the stimulated recall methodology to identify a range of work system factors that either positively or negatively influence family engagement during FCRs.
