Article of the Month

Each month, ASLME Insider readers can download the "Article of the Month" free of charge!

This month's featured article is "Return of Results: Towards a Lexicon?" by Bartha Maria Knoppers and Amy Dam from JLME 39.4.

JLME Update

As we wrap up the year, we are reminded of the symposium issues we published in 2011: “Health Legacies: Militarization, Health and Society” guest edited by Susan L. Smith; “Cost and End-of-Life Care” guest edited by Thaddeus M. Pope, Robert M. Arnold, and Amber E. Barnato; “Public Health Reform: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Implications for the Public’s Health” guest edited by Elizabeth Weeks Leonard; and lastly, “Return of Research Results: How Should Research Results Be Handled?” guest edited by Bartha Maria Knoppers and Emmanuelle Lévesque. We are indebted to your readership and support, and could not have done it without you and our wonderful guest editors and authors. Thank you for another year of relevant and quality content! 

We are currently working on JLME 40.1, a special issue for us as it marks the 40th volume of JLME and 100th anniversary of ASLME. This issue also introduces a new symposium guest edited by Robert M. Sade: “The Graying of America: Challenges and Controversies.” First presented at the 16th Annual Thomas A. Pitts Memorial Lectureship, the articles address ethical issues in the often overlooked health care of the elderly population—from end-of-life decision making to inequities in health care access, among other important topics.

Also in 2012 we will publish a history of ASLME written by Executive Director and JLME Editor Ted Hutchinson. Included will be perspectives from former editors and staff members at ASLME. It will nicely present who we are and what we have been passionately working towards for the past century. 

Until then, Happy Holidays!
