Knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes of older women in HIV/AIDS prevention. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Jan-Feb;71(1):40-46 Authors: Costa MS, Moreira MASP, Silva AO, Leite ES, Silva LM, Sampaio JB Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze the knowledge, religious beliefs and the adoption of preventive measures against HIV/AIDS of non-Catholic elderly women. METHOD: A qualitative study, carried out in religious institutions of a municipality in the state of Ceará, Northeast Brazil, with 78 elderly women. Of these, 64 were evangelicals, seven spiritualists and seven Jehovah's Witnesses. A semi-structured interview script was used followed by thematic content analysis of participants' responses. RESULTS: After analyzing the empirical data, three categories were elaborated: the first presented the knowledge they had about AIDS; the second, highlighted the beliefs attributed to people with HIV/AIDS; and the third, presented the preventive measures to HIV/AIDS adopted by them. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: There were participants with knowledge gaps and failure to use preventive measures against HIV/AIDS. They suggested that religious institutions can be venues for lectures on HIV/AIDS prevention. PMID: 29324943 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: The algorithm can be implemented in most clinical ultrasound machines with minor additions to the PW Doppler processing algorithm. The algorithm is optimized to be robust for a variety of blood flow velocities and is shown to perform well when the signal from the blood is on par in amplitude with the catheter signal. Significance: Unambiguous and distinct visualization of catheter tip facilitates real-time tracking of the catheter and aids minimally invasive procedures.

One of the most sought-after tickets on Broadway these days is Angels in America, a revival of Tony Kushner’s seminal play about the AIDS crisis and its aftermath. While only a few of us will be fortunate enough to see the show in person, everyone can benefit from the following insight: When the play originally debuted in 1991, HIV/AIDS was considered a death sentence and slapped with a stigma that isolated and ostracized those with the disease and their families. The same type of stigma is happening now with substance abuse and the opioid epidemic. Since 1991, we have learned how to treat, humanize, and support thos...

It’s finally getting warm here in New England, and most of us have plans to enjoy the beautiful weather. And that’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released a report raising awareness about how to prevent the tickborne infections that typically occur during this time of the year.
