High-ACE Low Wage Workers: Occupational Health Nursing Research and Praxis Through a Trauma-Informed Lens.

Individuals with a history of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) disproportionately have poor mental and physical health outcomes. These experiences affect individuals across the life span extending beyond health with deleterious impact on work-related outcomes. Low-wage workers are particularly at risk. Social service and health organizations are becoming aware of the extent to which the populations they serve have been affected by these experiences. Employment support programs may serve high-ACE individ...


Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis in Poland : Update 2017.

In the rapidly ageing society in Poland, osteoporosis is a growing epidemiological problem, and osteoporosis-related fractures are a cause of chronic disability and considerable increase of death risk. It turns out that 80 to 90% of patients suffering from osteoporosis, including osteoporosis accompanied by fractures, do not receive adequate pharmacotherapy. In this paper, a Guideline Working Group of experts from the Multidisciplinary Osteoporosis Forum update the existing Polish guidelines concerning the ...

Probing impaired neurogenesis in human brain organoids exposed to alcohol.

The fetal brain is highly vulnerable to ethanol exposure, which can trigger various long-term neuronal disabilities and cognitive dysfunctions. However, a comprehensive understanding of fetal brain development under ethanol exposure is challenging due to the limitations of animal models. Here, we propose a human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-based 3D brain organoid model, and explore the mechanisms underlying neural dysfunctions in prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) in vitro. Brain organoids were exami...

Transformation of a Geriatric Department in China.

China has the world's largest elderly population, and the oldest-old population, with a current disability rate greater than 50%, will triple in the next 35 years. The field of geriatrics is young, because almost all geriatric departments were established after 2000, and so faces many challenges. Management of diseases and hospital care is the focus. Senior physicians were trained in other subspecialties, such as pulmonary or cardiology, and junior physicians entered geriatrics departments as masters or doc...

Promoting father involvement in early home visiting services for vulnerable families: Findings from a pilot study of "Dads matter".

Despite mounting evidence on the importance of fathers in children's development, evidence-based perinatal home visitation programs have largely overlooked fathers in the design and delivery of services. This paper describes the design, development, and pilot testing of the "Dads Matter" enhancement to standard home visiting services. Dads Matter is a manualized intervention package designed to fully incorporate fathers into perinatal home visiting services. Twenty-four families were enrolled in a pilot stu...

Difficulty of confining recalcitrant tuberculosis patients in isolation wards in Japan, 2013-2014.

In Japan, approximately 7000 smear-positive tuberculosis (TB) cases were reported in 2014. According to the law, such patients must be isolated in a TB ward until they become at least sputum smear-negative. However, there are some recalcitrant patients who are difficult to isolate because of problematic behaviors. This study was conducted to characterize recalcitrant TB patients and determine why they left the hospitals and how they were followed up after they left.

A decision support tool for selecting the optimal sewage sludge treatment.

Sewage sludge contains significant amounts of resources, such as nutrients and organic matter. At the same time, the organic contaminants (OC) found in sewage sludge are of growing concern. Consequently, in many European countries incineration is currently favored over recycling in agriculture. This study presents a Multi-Attribute Value Theory (MAVT)-based decision support tool (DST) for facilitating sludge treatment decisions. Essential decision criteria were recognized and prioritized, i.e., weighted, by...

The electronic patient record - a great opportunity to rethink medical information and its use.

Since the early 2000s, the management of information concerning patient care has fundamentally changed. Previously stored in separate medical and nursing paper medical records, patient data are now gathered in a single electronic health record (EHR) thanks to the digitization of our hospitals, whose development and mastery are a major issue in today's health system.

Importance of handoffs for patient safety.

Handoffs are defined as the transfer of mission specific information and care authority from one healthcare professional to another. Handoffs may create gaps that are especially vulnerable to errors and may have an impact on patient safety. Conceptualising handoffs that are safe gains in importance in medicine with the growing clinical complexity, the reduction of working hours, and a great amount of care fragmentation. Different strategies on the handoff procedure have been identified to improve patient sa...

More Learners, Finite Resources, and the Changing Landscape of Procedural Training at the Bedside.

There is growing competition for non-operative, procedural training in teaching hospitals, due to an increased number of individuals seeking to learn procedures from a finite number of appropriate teaching cases. Procedural training is required by students, post-graduate learners, and practicing providers who must maintain their skills. These learner groups are growing in size as the number of medical schools increase and advance practice providers expand their skills to include complex procedures. These va...
