Podcast: Openly Discussing Suicide in Our Communities

   One of the most dangerous misconceptions about suicide is that asking a loved one if they are suicidal will increase the odds that they will attempt suicide.  Today Dr. Nate Ivers of Wake Forest University discusses the importance of making “the covert overt” by asking blunt, straightforward questions of those you suspect may be thinking about suicide.  What words should you use, and if the answer is yes, what should you do next?  And why are we so uncomfortable about asking these potentially lifesaving questions? Find out on this episode.

Consequently, the assumption that secondary mitral regurgitation is more a consequence than the cause of systolic heart failure needs to be revised; however, data from the simultaneously published MITRA-FR study showed no prognostic benefits for patients with advanced heart failure and severely enlarged left ventric...

Authors: Cheah PL, Li J, Looi LM, Koh CC, Lau TP, Chang SW, Teoh KH, Mun KS, Nazarina AR Abstract Since 2014, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) has recommended that colorectal carcinoma (CRC) be universally tested for high microsatellite instability (MSI-H) which is present in 15% of such cancers. Fidelity of resultant microsatellites during DNA replication is contingent upon an intact mismatch repair (MMR) system and lack of fidelity can result in tumourigenesis. Prior to commencing routine screening for MSI-H, we assessed two commonly used methods, immunohistochemical (IHC) determination of loss of...
