The goal of this study is to describe the state of mental health of Wisconsin medical students.
Two other optically related water quality variables also directly affect SD: non-algal suspended solids (SS ) and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM, expressed as the absorption coefficient at 440 nm, a ). Using a database of ~ 1460 samples from ~ 625 inland lake basins in Minnesota and two other Upper Midwest states, Wisconsin and Michigan, we analyzed relationships among these variables, with special focus on CDOM levels that influence SD values and the Minnesota SD standards used to assess eutrophica...
In 2016, 4,353 Wisconsin children under 6 years of age were identified with elevated blood lead levels (≥ 5 μg/dL). There is no safe level of lead in the human body; extensive research shows that children with blood lead levels < 5 μg/dL may still be at risk for adverse health effects including developmental delays.
Opioid overdoses and opioid-related fatalities have increased dramatically in Wisconsin over the past decade. The observed rise in morbidity and mortality parallels increased opioid prescribing and greater use of illicit drugs such as heroin. Increased availability of both prescription and illicit opioids may increase the risk of exposure and overdose among the pediatric population.
Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is responsible for over 450 deaths and 21,000 Emergency Department visits annually in the United States. In Wisconsin, multiple large-scale CO poisoning events have occurred in recent years. This analysis explores trends in CO exposure events in the state from 2006 through 2016.
In 2011, Wisconsin introduced the 2003 Revision of the US Standard Certificate of Live Birth, which includes a variable for principal payer. This variable could help in estimating Medicaid coverage for delivery services, but its accuracy in most states is not known. Our objective was to validate Medicaid payer classification on Wisconsin birth records.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Neurosurgery delivers subspecialty adult and pediatric neurosurgical care that is patient-centered, evidence-informed, and value-based. MCW research advances the science of neurological disease with the goal of making a positive translational impact on clinical care. The department supports an environment of education and scholarship for trainees, faculty, and staff alike. The journey to become a neurosurgical center of excellence was accomplished with th...
Sam Foster, Chief Nurse, Oxford University Hospitals, considers the need for an evidence base for a best practice NHS volunteer model to improve care quality, rather than using volunteers as a means to cut costs and training initiatives that could include enabling volunteers to switch careers.
Wisconsin currently has a 6.4% uninsured rate. In Milwaukee, it is not known what proportion of the currently uninsured may be eligible for health insurance and why those eligible have not enrolled.
Multiple global change drivers are increasing the present and future novelty of environments and ecological communities. However, most assessments of environmental novelty have focused only on future climate and were conducted at scales too broad to be useful for land management or conservation. Here, using historical county-level datasets of agricultural land use, forest composition, and climate, we conduct a regional-scale assessment of environmental novelty for Wisconsin landscapes from ca. 1890 to 2012....
Wisconsin physicians are experiencing burnout at levels that surpass national benchmarks. The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society), in conjunction with the American Medical Association (AMA), conducted a survey of 1,165 Wisconsin physicians to assess burnout and its contributing factors. The results indicate that primary causes of physician burnout include utilization and interactions with electronic health records (EHR), lack of a supportive practice environment, the loss of autonomy, and poor work/life bal...
A vermiculite processing plant in a Minneapolis, Minnesota neighborhood utilized asbestos-containing ore from Libby, Montana from the late 1930's until 1989. Multiple pathways of exposure to Libby asbestos were characterized in a cohort of over 6000 plant workers and residents living near the plant.
This study explores associations between job satisfaction, career flexibility, and burnout among physician assistants (PAs) in Minnesota.
To compare results of the observational Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) and global gait indexes such as GDI/GVI, constituting an objective method of assessing gait, and taking into account parameters identified during 3-dimensional gait analysis.
The physician shortage is an increasing concern across the nation. Wisconsin is seeing this shortage grow even more prominently in rural counties. In order to prepare a sufficient rural physician workforce, several state-funded programs are collaborating to monitor the number of rural graduate medical education (GME) opportunities available, assess the number of rural physicians needed to meaningfully reduce the shortage, and promote effective development and expansion of new and existing opportunities. Fro...
Livers of 25 common garter snakes () from Minnesota (2015-2016) were analyzed for heavy metals by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy. Dry weight mean concentrations (ranges μg/g) were arsenic, 118.94 (0.26-1245.56); cadmium, 1.44 (0.15-7.59); lead, 0.21 (
To assess the construct validity of the Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) in subjects after stroke.
Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) is an observational tool for the evaluation of gait quality in individuals after stroke with hemiplegia. It is divided into four subscales, which assess a total of fourteen spatiotemporal and kinematic parameters of gait observed during the consecutive gait phases. However, the WGS score change indicative of important and clinically meaningful change has not been determined.
Minnesota's medical cannabis program is unique, in that it routinely collects patient-reported scores on symptoms. This article focuses on changes in symptom severity reported by patients with cancer during their first 4 months of program participation.
There is limited research into the experiences of receiving and providing help in the context of hoarding disorder.
Falls are the leading cause of traumatic injury and injury-related emergency department visits in the state of Minnesota for children aged 0-14 years. We hypothesize that few of the Minnesota trauma centers and public health departments responsible for injury prevention (IP) efforts in the community are focusing on fall prevention interventions for children. The purpose of this study was to examine the current state of childhood IP interventions in Minnesota, identify potential partners to collectively addr...
The Minnesota family of exchange-correlation (xc) functionals are among the most popular, accurate and abundantly used functionals available to date. However, their use in plane-wave based first principles MD has been limited by their sparse availability. Here, we present an implementation of the M05, M06 and M11 families of xc functionals within a plane wave/pseudopotential framework allowing for a comprehensive analysis of their basis set dependence. While it has been reported that in Gaussian bases, some...
The development and expansion of wind energy is considered a key global threat to bat populations. Bat carcasses are being found underneath wind turbines across North and South America, Eurasia, Africa, and the Austro-Pacific. However, relatively little is known about the comparative impacts of techniques designed to modify turbine operations in ways that reduce bat fatalities associated with wind energy facilities. This study tests a novel approach for reducing bat fatalities and curtailment time at a wind...
