Thank you to everyone that completed a workshop scholarship application! The scholarship committee is currently reviewing all applications. Award letters will be sent out no later than mid-September. If you have any questions please call 573-256-2066 or email email@example.com.
We have received many questions lately regarding how to document your HDAs in your WebADS, so we thought we would share the answer with all of our members! With the latest annual administrative update, there is now a clear spot on the faculty form to list your publications in the 3rd box:
“Number of other presentations given (grand rounds, invited professorships), materials developed (such as computer-based modules), or work presented in non-peer review publications in the previous academic year. Articles without PMIDs should be counted in this section. This will include publications which are peer reviewed, but not recognized by the National Library of Medicine.”*
If you have any additional questions about documenting your FPIN work, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 913-296-7062.

Keeping up with the EMS!
The Editorial Management System successfully launched this past summer for our HelpDesk Answers writing project! Here are some things to know about the system this month.
- Receiving invitations from the EMS
- Unavailable dates
All HDA Faculty Corresponding Authors who sign up for questions after July 1, 2015 will receive an invitation to author the question from the EMS within 2 business days of signing up for the question. If you did not receive an invitation, please remember to check your Junk or Spam Mail folder as invitations have made their way in there.
If you still did not receive an invite, please contact Adelina Colbert at 573-256-2066 or via email at Adelina@fpin.org.
Registered EMS users who are also peer reviewers will be able to login into their respective accounts and update personal information with your availability.
To do so, login into your account and click ‘Update My Information’. At the very bottom of the page, click ‘Unavailable Dates’. Then, enter in the dates you are unavailable to peer review for FPIN with an optional brief reason why and click ‘Submit’.
Once you have done so, you will not be invited to peer review any HDA drafts over the dates you that you are unavailable!
For HDA Faculty Corresponding Authors, always remember to…
- Submit your Author Disclosure form when you are submitting your first drafts. The form must be filled out by the corresponding author and any additional co-authors and be saved as one PDF copy. You can obtain a copy of the form here.
- Only submit first drafts as Microsoft Office Word Documents. References and tables can be in the form of a PDF or an Excel file.
- Respond to your invitation within 10 days! If you did not respond but would still like to author the question, please contact Adelina Colbert via email or at 573-256-2066.

Completed the FPIN Institute modules and looking to get started on your question or topic? This page is your home for signing up for your eMedRef, HelpDesk Answer or Clinical Inquiry.
Get residents involved in the scholarship of integration by writing a letter to the editor of Evidence-Based Practice. EBP is nationally and internationally disseminated to other FPIN programs and libraries. Writing a letter to the editor provides residents with the unique opportunity to synthesize knowledge, incorporate real life experience and back it with the best available evidence.
HelpDesk Answers (HDAs) are brief, structured, evidence-based answers to clinical questions written by physicians for physicians. HDAs are 450 to 600 words, drawing from the best available recent evidence including: meta-analyses, evidence-based guidelines, or original research.
HDAs are peer reviewed and published in Evidence-Based Practice.
The Clinical Inquiry (CI) project is designed for faculty with protected time for writing. Faculty interested in writing a CI must first successfully write and publish two HelpDesk Answers before beginning a CI. This rigorous writing project takes about 40-50 hours over 9-12 months to complete. CI’s are published in The Journal of Family Practice, American Family Physician, and Evidence-Based Practice.
PURLs (Priority Updates from the Research Literature) distill the latest literature to those few articles that are relevant, practice-changing, and able to be implemented immediately.
The PURLS system was developed in a collaborative partnership of the FPIN and The Journal of Family Practice.
