Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is the most frequently used bone void filler in orthopedic surgery. However, the interface between the PMMA-based cement and adjacent bone tissue is typically weak as PMMA bone cement that is inherently bioinert and not ideal for bone ingrowth. The present study aims to improve the affinity between the polymer and ceramic interphases. By surface modifying nano-sized hydroxyapatite (nHAP) with ethylene glycol and poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) sequentially via a two-step ring opening reaction,...

Data from: A study of how using an interactive multimedia e-book improves teachers’ ability to teach evidence-based medicine, depending on their seniority

Mao-Meng Tiao
Background The role of the electronic book (e-book) is a useful adjunct to traditional teaching methods. Our aim is to study the use of the e-book for teaching effects. Methods This study group was introduced to learning evidence-based medicine (EBM) from an interactive e-book available on the Internet, and a control group using a PowerPoint presentation. Questionnaires (21 items) assessed learners’ EBM skills before and after the learning. EBM learning sessions were 20–30 minutes long,...
