Thank you for considering joining the PURLs Surveillance Team. PURLs (Priority Updates to the Research Literature) are published in The Journal of Family Practice and FPIN’s journal, Evidence-Based Practice. In addition, we are planning to expand to other family medicine journals. This expansion is due to both the popularity of the series and the number of practice-changing articles. Therefore, we need more nominators!
The PURLs Surveillance Team is a community of family medicine docs and primary care clinicians who share and discuss practice-changing research articles. These interactive conversations influence which articles are sent to the next level for consideration to be critically appraised further and potentially published as a PURL or a Diving for PURL.
Surveillance team members will be assigned to review one journal per month. In addition, the eTOC (electronic table of contents) will be sent monthly as a reminder to check for new articles. Finally, if a potential practice-changing article is discovered using the PURL criteria, the nominator is expected to submit it to the PURLs Nomination listserv for peer discussion.
