Outrage: Taking Away Rights From Vulnerable Nursing Home Residents
In a horrible destruction of nursing home residents'rights, the Feds have destroyed the basic legal privilege of taking a claim in a nursing home to court. Forcing secret arbitrations on these elders and disabled is a travesty. Government regulations should protect, not harm elders.
Conclusions: Neurocutaneous syndromes are clinically heterogeneous and the surveillance of potential clinical complications is challenging. The availability of genetic diagnosis and novel imaging methods in this group of disorders is likely to further expand their clinical spectrum. Guidelines for assessment and management will need to be modified based on new available data. PMID: 31443616 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions. The BENECA mHealth lifestyle application with a supervised rehabilitation program had a statistically and clinically significant effect on QoL and upper-limb functionality in breast cancer survivors and is a unique and important promising new approach.
Kerry Thompson, 40, from Milton Keynes, waited more than a decade for a smear test as a result of her disability. Luckily, Kerry's results came back clear. But her story is not unique.
Lindau David Lewis Disability-disaggregated data are increasingly considered important to monitor progress in Universal Eye Health Care. Hospital-based data are still elusive because of the cultural ambiguities of the term disability, especially in under-resourced Health Information Systems in low-and middle-income countries. The aim of this study was to estimate the hospital-based rate of disability in patients presenting at an eye department of a rural hospital in Paraguay and to discuss implications for the management of access barriers. Therefore, we introduced two standardized sets of the Washington Group (WG) ...
Conclusions: Interventions to promote hearing aid use need to focus on addressing reasons for the perception of hearing difficulties and how to promote hearing aid use. Interventions to promote hearing aid use may need to target demographic groups that are particularly unlikely to use hearing aids, including younger adults, those who live alone and those from ethnic minority backgrounds.
Conclusion - Our studies substantiate the eligibility of mice and zebrafish models for human MCT8 deficiency. However, differences in the intrinsic transporter properties of MCT8 orthologues may exist, which should be realized when comparing MCT8 deficiency in different in vivo models. Moreover, our findings may indicate that the protein domains outside the substrate channel may play a role in substrate selection and protein stability.

Signaling defects caused by dysregulation of its NTrk2 (TrkB) kinase (TrkB.FL) and truncated receptors (TrkB.T1) have been linked to the pathophysiology of several neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. We found that upregulation of Rbfox1, an RNA binding protein associated with intellectual disability, epilepsy and autism, increases selectively...
ConclusionsThese studies demonstrate child sleep problems are associated with poorer parent mental health and higher parenting stress.ImplicationsFuture longitudinal research including multiple measurements of child sleep problems and family functioning is required to clarify the directionality of associations. Such knowledge is key in adapting sleep interventions to better meet the needs of children with ADHD or ASD and their families.
