Supporting nurse mentors to reduce the barriers to implementing alcohol Interventions and Brief Advice (IBA) in primary care

Conclusion This project indicates that by supporting nurse mentors in leading on the implementation of IBA there is potential for reducing alcohol-related harm within the existing resources of the surgery. This could support primary care in the practical implementation of an evidence based cost effective intervention which has experienced patchy uptake.

NAFLD is the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. As obesity, diabetes and other life style related diseases continue to rise, the spectrum of NAFLD e.g., NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis), liver fibrosis, liver cirrhosis, liver related morbidity and mortality will ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal of malignancies with 5-year survival of only 8%. A number of reasons account for the high fatality rate including few known modifiable risk factors, no effective screening tools, and lack of early diagnostic symptoms. Therefore, in this review, we aim to summarize existing evidence from major studies concerning (1) risk factors for risk assessment and risk stratification, and (2) screening modalities and early detection markers to better understand the ways to prevent pancreatic cancer or identify it at earlier stages. Improvements in primary and sec...

AbstractPatients who undergo bariatric surgery are at increased risk of developing alcohol problems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether patients who underwent bariatric surgery recalled receiving education about alcohol prior to having surgery and to investigate their alcohol use patterns. Patients (N = 567) who underwent bariatric surgery completed a survey regarding their knowledge of risks related to post-surgical alcohol use. Although most patients recalled receiving education about abstinence from alcohol after surgery, at least one-third of patients do not appear to understand the risk s ...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the liver manifestation of the metabolic syndrome linked to obesity and insulin resistance, affects 25% of the general population both in western and developing countries [1]. As in the other causes of chronic liver disease, liver fibrosis is the main determinant of prognosis in NAFLD [2]. The risk of liver-related mortality increases from fibrosis stage 2 and is exponentially higher when transitioning to stage F3 (bridging fibrosis) then F4 (cirrhosis) [2].

Authors: Kim SY, Min C, Oh DJ, Choi HG Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the relationship among smoking, alcohol consumption, and obesity and benign or malignant parotid tumors in a Korean population. Methods: The Korean National Health Insurance Service-Health Screening Cohort (for ≥40-year-olds) was assessed from 2002 to 2013. In total, 336 benign parotid tumors and 46 malignant parotid tumors were matched with controls at a ratio of 1 to 4 with respect to age, sex, income, region of residence, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. We analyzed previous histories of smoking, alcohol consumption, and obes...
