Health professionals' understanding of person-centred communication for risk prevention conversations: an exploratory study.

Conclusions: Person-centred communication was embedded in clinical practice; the 'patient voice' was considered central. Clinical risk was a priority. Education to improve communication was highlighted as a way to enhance person-centred communication. PMID: 31514630 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: de la Cruz Torres B Abstract CONTEXT: Lateral epicondylalgia (LE) refers to a painful condition at or around the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. LE is one of the most common injuries of the elbow; however, the cause of the pathology is not clear. Patients often experience symptoms consistent with a radial nerve injury; however, data on the involvement of the radial nerve are needed. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the relationship between electrophysiologic excitability and morphology of the radial nerve in patients with unilateral chronic LE. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Department of Phys...

Plescia Work-related stress is a growing health problem in modern society. The stress response is characterized by numerous neurochemicals, neuroendocrine and immune modifications that involve various neurological systems and circuits, and regulation of the gene expression of the different receptors. In this regard, a lot of research has focused the attention on the role played by the environment in influencing gene expression, which in turn can control the stress response. In particular, genetic factors can moderate the sensitivities of specific types of neural cells or circuits mediating the imprinting of the enviro...

o Carla Taramasco Automatic fall detection is a very active research area, which has grown explosively since the 2010s, especially focused on elderly care. Rapid detection of falls favors early awareness from the injured person, reducing a series of negative consequences in the health of the elderly. Currently, there are several fall detection systems (FDSs), mostly based on predictive and machine-learning approaches. These algorithms are based on different data sources, such as wearable devices, ambient-based sensors, or vision/camera-based approaches. While wearable devices like inertial measurement units (IMUs) an...

ConclusionOur data provide the first demonstration in UVH patients that earlier is better to improve DVA and passive aVOR gain. Gaze stabilization exercises would benefit from the plastic events occurring in brain structures during a sensitive period or opportunity time window to elaborate optimal functional reorganizations. This result is potentially very important for the VR programs to restore the aVOR gain instead of recruiting compensatory saccades assisting gaze stability.

CONCLUSION: CFT reduced disability, but not pain, at 6 and 12 months compared with the group-based exercise and education intervention. Future research should examine whether the greater reduction in disability achieved by CFT renders worthwhile differences for health systems and patients. TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: registry (NCT02145728). PMID: 31630089 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
