CONCLUSION: This study examined knowledge and attitudes about splenectomy in a cohort of haemoglobinopathy patients in an Australian tertiary referral centre. The majority had good or fair knowledge with a strong association of some elements of post-splenectomy care with being placed on a spleen registry and having received targeted education. Implementation of systematic approaches by medical staff is likely to be the main benefit of a clinical registry approach in this setting. PMID: 29237357 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Early Cambrian Pseudooides prima has been described from embryonic and post-embryonic stages of development, exhibiting long germ-band development. There has been some debate about the pattern of segmentation, but this interpretation, as among the earliest records of ecdysozoans, has been generally accepted. Here, we show that the 'germ band' of P. prima embryos separates along its mid axis during development, with the transverse furrows between the 'somites' unfolding into the polar aperture of the ten-sided theca of Hexaconularia sichuanensis, conventionally interpreted as a scyphozoan cnidarian; co-occ...

This study aimed to investigate the cell cycle arrest and autophagy induced by iron overload inMC3T3‐E1 cells. MC3T3‐E1 cells were cultured in different concentrations of ferric ammonium citrate (FAC), and Perls' Prussian blue reaction was used to detect the iron levels of the cells. CCK‐8 assays were used to detect the growth of MC3T3‐E1. The level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within cells was investigated with DCFH‐DA. PI staining was used to analyze the cell cycle distribution of MC3T3‐E1 cells. Finally, the expression levels of cell cycle related proteins, autophagy related proteins, AKT, p38 MAPK, Stat...

CONCLUSIONS: Finding from this study highlight the important role that interpreters play in cognitive assessments with immigrants. However, there appears to be different perceptions of the role between clinicians and interpreters. When these different understandings are not resolved, they will lead to tension between clinicians and interpreters. These findings highlight the importance of relational aspects in interpreter-mediated assessment and suggest that the negotiation of the relationships between clinicians and interpreters is an important factor that determines the effectiveness and accuracy of these assessments. ...

CONCLUSIONS: CPBR model is a successful education and outreach tool with Latino communities. Our Dementia Awareness Campaign was a success with the first 20 Promotoras trained; at present we plan to train additional groups in nearby communities with significant Hispanic/Latino populations. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: In order to get Latinos to seek early detection, we need to first educate them about dementia, win trust, and encourage treatment-seeking. Early intervention, diagnosis, and prevention will benefit from educational campaigns using the CBPR model. PMID: 29240536 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Non-pharmacological approaches to pain in residential care settings are effective, especially when two or more are combined. Staff working in residential care settings should rely on best practice to recognise pain in residents with dementia. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Non-pharmacological interventions may be effective in reducing pain and reliance on PRN medications in residential care settings, especially when two or more are used. Staff working in residential aged care settings should be provided with training in pain assessment and management, with particular attention to residents with dementia. PMID:...

CONCLUSIONS: A bedside photograph improved connections between staff, patients and carers, promoting patients' dignity of identity. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Displaying a bedside photograph as a visual reminder of the patient in the pre‑illness state helps preservation of an individual's dignity, a core concept in patient‑centered care.
