Abstract

Clinicians would benefit from decision support systems incorporating the knowledge of clinical practice guidelines. However, the unstructured form of the guidelines makes them unsuitable for formal representation. To remedy this shortcoming we translated a set of pediatric guidelines into Attempto Controlled English (ACE). An experienced pediatrician and a knowledge engineer assessed that ACE can accurately represent the clinical concepts and the proposed actions of the guidelines. Currently, we are developing a systematic and replicable approach to authoring guideline recommendations in ACE.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
