The Birds, Bees, and Special Needs: Making Evidence-Based Sex Education Accessible for Adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities

This study demonstrates the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), an educational framework, guidelines, and checklist tools (Eagleton, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Salem Press, Ipswich,2015; Center for Applied Special Technology, UDL curriculum self-check 2011 (updated 2011),2011.http://udlselfcheck.cast.org/resources.php) to increase accessibility in HIPTeens, an evidence-based sexual risk reduction intervention (Morrison-Beedy et al. in J Assoc Nurses AIDS Care 13(1):21 –27,2002; Res Nurs Health 28(1):3 –15,2005; AIDS Behav 10(5):541,2006; J Assoc Nurses AIDS Care 21(2):153 –161,2010; West J Nurs Res 33(5):690 –711,2011; J Adolesc Health 52(3):314 –321,2013; J Assoc Nurses AIDS Care 28(6):877 –887,2017). As a result, supplemental curriculum components were developed with UDLguided technology use recommendations. A UDL-integrated evidence-based sexual risk reduction intervention could increase accessibility and, with additional research, could help inform inclusive policy.

Authors: Siamashvili M, Davis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bromocriptine mesylate quick release (QR) is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist and is the only oral, primarily centrally acting drug that can be used for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. AREAS COVERED: The authors describe current recommendations on the use of bromocriptine mesylate QR. Major efficacy and safety parameters of the late phase trials, including The Cycloset Safety Trial, have been identified and presented. EXPERT OPINION: Efficacy of bromocriptine mesylate QR monotherapy appears to be low but is compensated by favorable safety pr...

CONCLUSION: When gastroenterologists encounter NAFLD/NASH patients, serum CK should be verified. If hyperCKemia, frontal baldness, a hatched face, history of cataract surgery, and grip myotonia are noted, the possibility of MD may be considered. PMID: 33033573 [PubMed]

Authors: Frías JP Abstract INTRODUCTION: The glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists (RA) have increasingly gained prominence in the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) based on their glycemic benefits and favorable body weight and cardiorenal effects. Despite this, continued development of therapeutics with superior efficacy is important to help address persistent challenges in the attainment of metabolic goals in many patients with T2D. AREAS COVERED: Tirzepatide is an unimolecular dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP)/GLP-1 RA in development for the treatment of T2D. This re...

Conclusion: It appears that the knee OA pain and disability can be decreased after a dual-frequency LLLT applied to acupoints (SP9, SP10, and EX-LE2). The clinical efficacy of LLLT is highly related to the therapeutic settings of the laser apparatus; hence, more clinical trials with diffident parameter settings are needed to be further clarified.
