Life ‐story work in long‐term care facilities for older people: An integrative review

ConclusionThe review extends the current evidence on the experience of using life ‐story work in long‐term aged care facilities for older people. Life‐story work has the potential to enhance person centred care in long‐term care. However, improving the process of implementation of life story work will require education, time and resources and a commitment from service pro viders and managers.Relevance to clinical practiceStaff who undertake life ‐story work with residents need to be equipped with the skills to recognise and manage the challenges and issues that may potentially arise. Further research into the successful implementation of life‐story work and how it can be resourced is required.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractA 4-year-old boy with Noonan syndrome accompanied by hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy presented with refractory heart failure owing to severe left ventricular outflow obstruction and mitral regurgitation. He underwent mitral valve replacement and trans-mitral myectomy. The pathology of the resected myocardium was consistent with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and the mitral valve leaflets were severely degenerated. Compared with a control patient who is a non-syndromic 4-year-old boy with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, mitral pathology was much more severe in Noonan syndrome. Regarding trans-mitral m...

We examined the delayed effects of PM2.5 concentrations for the short-lag (1-4 weeks prior) and the long-lag (during the prior wildfire season months) on the following winter influenza season in Montana, a mountainous state in the western United States. We created gridded maps of surface PM2.5 for the state of Montana from 2009 to 2018 using spatial regression models fit with station observations and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aerosol optical thickness data. We used a seasonal quasi-Poisson model with generalized estimating equations to estimate weekly, county-specific, influenza counts for ...

Conclusion: Consistent with the Technology Acceptance Model, carers and participants were influenced by their approaches to technology and determined the usefulness of the prompter according to whether it worked for them and fitted into their routines. In addition, participants' decisions about using the prompter were also determined by the extent to which doing so would impact on their self-identity.

If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Emotional intelligence -- or EQ, short for emotional intelligence quotient -- is defined as the ability to use one’s emotions to full advantage. Emotionally intelligent people have full command of all their social skills (including self-awareness, empathy and the like) and when placed in leadership positions respect others’ views while inspiring outside-the-box thinking.  Additionally, bus...

Authors: Shionoya Y, Yamamoto M, Sunada K, Nakamura K Abstract Cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome is a rare condition characterized by congenital heart disease, craniofacial dysmorphology, and dermatological abnormalities. CFC syndrome is one of the RASopathies, a family of syndromes that also includes Noonan and Costello syndromes, all with underlying gene mutations involving the Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways. Important considerations for anesthesiologists caring for these patients include the need to evaluate for possible cardiac defects, anticipating and planning for potentially difficult airway...

Abstract On December 24, 2019, the pigment, melanoma, and photobiology research communities lost a treasure. Dr. Edward De Fabo passed away peacefully after a valiant 5-year battle against advanced colon cancer. He was 82. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Dr. Frances Noonan, who had also been his scientific partner. Together, they were a remarkable team, seeking and finding answers to critical scientific questions that had plagued researchers for decades. PMID: 32191388 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Lorenzo Mortara Human RNASET2 acts as a powerful oncosuppressor protein in in vivo xenograft-based murine models of human cancer. Secretion of RNASET2 in the tumor microenvironment seems involved in tumor suppression, following recruitment of M1-polarized macrophages. Here, we report a murine Rnaset2-based syngeneic in vivo assay. BALB/c mice were injected with parental, empty vector-transfected or murine Rnaset2-overexpressing mouse C51 or TS/A syngeneic cells and tumor growth pattern and immune cells distribution in tumor mass were investigated. Compared to control cells, mouse Rnaset2-expressing C51 cells showed s...

Conclusions: Lztr1 deletion phenotypically overlaps with bleeding diathesis observed in NS patients. ELISA screening of soluble VEGFR2 in the blood of LZTR1-mutated NS patients may predict both the severity of NS phenotypes and potential responders to anti-VEGF therapy. VEGFR inhibitors could be beneficial for the treatment of bleeding disorders in NS patients. PMID: 32175818 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
