Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-15-123 Opportunity Category: DiscretionaryFunding Instrument Type: GrantCategory of Funding Activity: HealthCFDA Number: 93.912Eligible Applicants Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification)Agency Name: HHS-HRSAClosing Date: Apr 06, 2015Award Ceiling: $0Expected Number of Awards: 8Creation Date: Feb 05, 2015Funding Opportunity Description: This announcement solicits applications for the Rural Health Care Coordination Network Partnership Program (Care Coordination Program). The purpose of the Rural Health Care Coordination Network Partnership Program is to support the development of formal, mature rural health networks that focus on care coordination activities for the following chronic conditions:? diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).? Care coordination in the primary care practice involves deliberately organizing patient care activities and sharing information among all of the participants concerned with a patient?s care to achieve safer and more effective care.? Rural Americans are unhealthier, with higher rates of chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, CHF, and COPD and have higher rates of high-risk behaviors such as smoking, physical inactivity, and poor nutrition.[1],[2],[3],[4]? These high-risk behaviors cause many of the illnesses, suffering and deaths due to chronic diseases and conditions.[5]? The increasing...

In this work, two dimensional p-type MoS2 nanosheets are introduced on the surface of p-type ZnO derived from metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) to produce ZnO@MoS2 core/shell heterojunctions as a novel acetone sensor, showing a great enhancement of acetone response, about two orders of magnitude than that of pure Z...

Long-term physiological hyperglycemia will aggravate the degree of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) proteins. Because the abnormal changes of non-enzymatic process can cause a series of pathological variation, NEG proteins have attracted more and more attention. Mass spectrometry (MS) is an indispensable and powerful analytical tool for the qualitative and quan...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: TechnovationAuthor(s): Jonathan D. LintonAbstractGeneralizability is the goal for scientists (both social and natural). In the social sciences invoking generalizability is more problematic as it is often based on assessment of a mainstream population, but may not apply to groups outside of the mainstream. This is a significant challenge to developing appropriate policy and interventions suitable for Other groups. An example is given of how this concern was overcome through consideration of the Voice Of the Customer (VOC) and utilizing cognitive maps to consider the...

We present a review of the classifications, pathophysiology, and evidence-based guidelines for planning and preventive measures, as well as best practice recommendations for both routine and urgent therapeutic management of diabetes and glycemic complications. These recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks or burdens for each recommendation.

This study evaluated whether CM improved psychosocial status and prevented rehospitalization in patients with HF in comparison with self-management education (SM), and usual care (UC).We randomly allocated 59 patients into 3 groups; UC (n = 19), SM (n = 20), and CM (n = 20). The UC group received one patient education session, and the SM and CM groups participated in disease management programs for 12 months. The CM group received telemonitoring concurrently. All groups were followed up for another 12 months. Data were collected at baseline and at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months.The primary endpoint was quality of life (QOL). Sec...

Abstract Adenosine is a purine nucleoside, responsible for the regulation of a wide range of physiological and pathophysiological conditions by binding with four G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), namely A1, A2A, A2B and A3 adenosine receptors (ARs). In particular, A1 AR is ubiquitously present, mediating a variety of physiological processes throughout the body, thus represents a promising drug target for the management of various pathological conditions. Agonists of A1 AR are found to be useful for the treatment of atrial arrhythmia, angina, type-2 diabetes, glaucoma, neuropathic pain, epilepsy, depression and ...

In the coming decade, as the fee-for-service model of healthcare financing wanes, primary care physician incomes are expected to expand at the expense of hospitals and specialists whose profitability is based on remuneration for tests and procedures. This assumes that enhanced primary care will be able to modify the cost of care by reducing hospitalizations, length of stay in nursing and rehabilitation facilities, emergency department visits, and frequency of diagnostic testing. Medical conditions whose costs are judged to be the most modifiable include obstructive chronic pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, type ...
