Outbreak detection of influenza-like illness in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia: a community-based surveillance.

This study showed that the ILI outbreak might be caused by seasonal influenza A/H1N1 pdm09 spread from person to person. Poor living conditions and poor hygiene and sanitation practices were environmental factors that caused the outbreak. As the CBS system was unable to identify this epidemic, it needs to be improved.

However, whether NS1 also specifically regulates RIG-I transcription is unknown. Here, we identify a CCAAT/Enh...

CONCLUSIONS: Given increasing rates of opioid addiction and death, viable solutions are universally needed. Successful intervention measures should be widely shared between military, veteran, and civilian healthcare and public health communities. Increased collaboration between these groups could inculcate successful programs to prevent and decrease opioid use. Results received from recent military and veterans' programs for prescription and electronic medical record (EMR) monitoring and data sharing may also prove useful for civilian healthcare providers and hospital systems. Future evaluations from ongoing federally fund...

ConclusionsParticipants described how abusive partners may attempt to control or discredit their partners in pediatric healthcare settings, using subtle behaviors that may be easily missed by the healthcare team. These results set the stage for further research and clinical practice innovation including triangulating the findings with IPV survivors, examining how frequently these behaviors occur, and developing multidisciplinary IPV training for the pediatric healthcare team.

CONCLUSIONS: Significant barriers remain for objective and comprehensive evaluation(s) of post-acute program quality and purported patient outcomes in the United States. There remains a lack of consensually relevant and objective metrics. Further investigation is recommended for: consensus on longitudinal post-acute brain injury outcome measures; functional relevance of program accreditations/certifications; outcome differences based on team composition and program resources; and patient/stakeholder variables/input to support optimal post-acute service access and delivery.

CONCLUSIONS: Persistent Sport-Related Post-Concussion Syndrome is a topic of great interest to both professionals and the general public. There is much misunderstanding about the etiology, causation, diagnostic formulations, symptom presentation, prolonging factors and treatment involved in this syndrome. This article posits an individualized multi-system diagnostic formulation, examining all relevant factors, as generating the best interventions for neurorehabilitation of Persistent Sport-Related Post-Concussion Syndrome.

Influenza has been impacting public health on a global scale since the beginning of recorded history. Influenza, also known as the “flu,” has numerous organizations committed to public health research, developing vaccines, and educating on best practices to prepare for the upcoming flu season. By gaining an understanding of the flu through history, virology, and how it impacts our society, we can have a better appreciation for the commitment that’s involved with combating the flu. What Is Influenza (and What’s Not)? The eyes of an epidemiologist can twitch for a variety of reasons, one of them being...

This study represents an advance with respect to the field of participatory public health surveillance systems. To-date, reports in the literature of online participatory studies have been limited to self-reported syndromic information only. Some studies have combined self-reported influenza symptoms with serology to understand attack rates in the population. However, linkage to symptoms has been limited in self-sampling studies, and although other studies have demonstrated that individuals can obtain a nasal swab specimen from themselves, we report here that individuals prefer saliva and initial results indicate that it c...
