Time trends in health inequalities due to care in the context of the Spanish Dependency Law.

CONCLUSIONS: Between 2006 and 2012, trends in health inequalities attributable to informal care show different trends according to gender and share of responsibility. It is necessary to redesign and implement policies to reduce inequalities that take into account the most affected groups, such as women lone carers. Policies that strengthen the fair social distribution of care should also be adopted. PMID: 27491432 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

es DU Abstract Human t-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)-associated myelopathy (HAM) is a progressive neurological disease whose diagnosis is defined by clinical manifestations and seropositivity for HTLV-1 infection. Cognitive impairment (CI) is considered to occur after spinal impairment. A 51-year-old HTLV-1-infected man classified as an asymptomatic carrier presented difficulties in listening comprehension and executive memory.

Conclusion: Although the current evidence is limited, the findings suggest that VR-based rehabilitation in subjects with SCI may lead to positive effects on aerobic function, balance, pain level, and motor function recovery besides improving psychological/motivational aspects. Further high-quality studies are needed to provide a guideline to clinical practice and to draw robust conclusions about the potential benefits of VR therapy for SCI patients.

Imagine you’re in your early thirties, in a job you enjoy at a company you love, and you just got promoted (without lobbying for it), so you’re living a great life. All of a sudden, you’re bombarded with negative feedback from your manager.

You’re devastated, stunned, confused, hurt, embarrassed, lost, scared, and basically frozen...
