Conclusion: These findings support the hypothesis that in FM a deteriorated function of cortical inhibition, indexed by a higher SICI parameter, a lower function of the DPMS, together with a higher level of BDNF indicate that FM has different pathological substrates from depression. They suggest that an up-regulation phenomenon of intracortical inhibitory networks associated with a disruption of the DPMS function occurs in FM. Introduction Major depressive disorder (MDD) and fibromyalgia (FM) present overlapped symptoms. Although the connection between these two disorders has not been elucidated yet, the disruption...

Authors: Forbat L, Mnatzaganian G, Barclay S Abstract Despite the widespread incidence of conflict and its detrimental impact across a range of health-care settings, there is no validated tool with which to measure it. This paper describes the international innovation of a tool to measure staff-family conflict in pediatrics, intensive care, emergency, palliative care, and nursing homes. Sixty-two health-care workers contributed to focus group discussions to refine a draft tool developed from the literature. Subsequently, 101 health-care workers applied the tool to fictionalized vignettes. The psychometric propertie...

AbstractCancer is the second cause of mortality in the world. Increased incidence of cancer and its growing trend have drawn attention to care for these patients. Palliative care is a solution for improving the quality of cancer care. However, only 14% of cancer patients in the world are receiving palliative care and most nurses lack the adequate knowledge and education to implement different palliative care models for cancer patients. This review of the literature intended to identify the palliative care models used by nurses for cancer patients as well as the similarities and differences between these models. Databases s...

CONCLUSION: Our study strongly affirms the efficacy of an interdisciplinary approach including surgical and innovative medical strategies based on immunotherapy in patients with advanced chemo-resistant synchronous cervical and lung cancer. The present findings support the use of NGS to drive a targeted rational treatment especially in heavily pre-treated patients. PMID: 31007844 [PubMed]
