Elbow Injury Prevention In Youth Dominican Baseball Players: A Training Intervention Pilot Study, Chelsey Erbaugh Franz, Dawn Hall-Bibb, Myra Stockdale, Aliya Thompson, Bailey Biggs
Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice
Background: Research suggests deficits in shoulder and elbow strength and flexibility may explain the role of elbow injuries in overhead athletes, specifically ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury in baseball players. Significant damage to this ligament typically requires operative care for continued activity in the sport. Several studies have demonstrated the success of rehabilitation programs post-surgery; however, few studies have examined the role of UCL injury prevention programs. A recognized upper extremity (UE) injury prevention method is the Thrower’s Ten Program. This program may create elbow stability when pitching and throwing, theoretically reducing the risk of UCL injury. Purpose: The ...

Interprofessional Student Hotspotting: Impact Of Federally Qualified Health Centers (Fqhc) On Complex Patients, 2019 Thomas Jefferson University
Interprofessional Student Hotspotting: Impact Of Federally Qualified Health Centers (Fqhc) On Complex Patients, Alexis Amendola, Pallavi Chary, Andrew Day, Graziella Holland, Michelle Murray, Jesse Simpson
Individuals with complex health and social needs drive much of the total cost of care, accounting for nearly 50% of annual costs. Studies show that patients’ use of community health centers is associated with lower health care costs, less frequent use of emergency departments, and fewer preventable hospitalizations, compared to patients who do not use the health centers. Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) provide patients with medical homes where they can build ongoing, personal relationships with treatment teams, resulting in continuous, comprehensive and integrated care.
Additionally, addressing these individuals' needs and decreasing costs requires interprofessional teams to engage with communities ...

An Overview And An Experience Of Hotspotting, Adam Myer, Allyson Psillos, Brianna Brown, Anne Bono, Stephen Kern, Phd, Otr/L, Faota, Jamie Smith, Michele Zawora, Md
United States Healthcare Dilemma
In the United States, a large proportion of healthcare resources and costs are utilized by a small percentage of the population.
- Approximately 25% of the United States healthcare costs are incurred by 1 percent of the population, while 5% are of healthcare costs are incurred by 50% of the population. The small percentage of the individuals who consume large amounts of resources has led to the term “super-utilizers.”
- These patients usually have complex and hard-to-manage conditions, as well as socioeconomic barriers to care, which frequently lead to potentially avoidable emergency department and hospital admissions and complications ...
Bridging The Gaps: Team 6 Hotspotting Experience, 2019 Thomas Jefferson University
Bridging The Gaps: Team 6 Hotspotting Experience, Sean O'Sullivan, Rebecca Schuck, Sean Tonnesen, Gabrielle Sallade, Emily Osisek, Avninder Ubhi
Healthcare spending in the U.S. reached $3.5 trillion in 20171. Half of this spending was due to only 5% of patients. Hotspotting is the practice of identifying high-utilizing patients and providing them ancillary care. Supporting such patients with nutrition information, care coordination, clinician communication, health education, and treatment adherence coaching benefits the patients, clinicians, and healthcare system. The Jefferson Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Program places students of different educational programs into teams to identify high-utilizing patients and provide them individualized and holistic care. It is an intimate longitudinal clinical experience for students and an opportunity to improve the health ...

Listen To Us: Dad-Endorsed Strategies For Ehdi Professionals, Holly F. Pedersen Dr., Jerusha Olthoff
Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention
While fathers play an increasingly important role in today’s families, there is an imbalance of research regarding fathers of children with disabilities compared to mothers. Modest research with mothers of children who are deaf/hard of hearing exists; however, very limited research is available specific to fathers of that population. With the advent of newborn hearing screening, the number of children who have hearing loss being identified within the first six months of life has significantly increased. Thus, the number of fathers participating in EHDI services has also increased. Seeking to answer the question, What do fathers’ experiences in ...
Using Short Message (Sms) To Deliver Appointment Reminders And Reduce No-Show Rates: An Evidence-Based Practice Project, 2019 University of San Diego
Using Short Message (Sms) To Deliver Appointment Reminders And Reduce No-Show Rates: An Evidence-Based Practice Project, Fernando Serrano
Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts
Background/Objectives: Missed appointments (MAs) are correlated with reduced treatment efficacy, increased financial burden on medical institutions, and early treatment terminations for therapy (DeFife, Conklin, Smith, & Poole, 2010). MAs occur for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to severity of illness, financial/geographic constraints, and forgetting the appointment (Filippidou, Lingwood, & Mirza, 2014). Appointment compliance within outpatient mental health clinics has a wide variance with some clinics reporting MAs ranging from 15% to 50% (Car, Gurol-Urganci, de Jongh, Vodopivec-Jamsek, & Atun, 2013).
With decreasing costs and a subsequent massive increase in mobile phone technology use by the general population, Short ...

Learning Science: Physical And Life Sciences In Curricula Across U.S. Schools Of Nursing, Valerie C. Sauda
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Nursing educators are being challenged to provide curriculum that meets the changing healthcare environment and demand for creative, innovative nurses to assist in transforming healthcare into the future (Benner, Sutphen, Leonard, & Day, 2010; Institute Of Medicine, 2011). The liberal education provided within a baccalaureate of science in nursing (BSN) degree program provides a diversity of courses within the curriculum, including courses in the natural, physical, mathematical, and social sciences (American Association of Colleges of Nursing [AACN], 2008). Although nursing programs have included science courses in curriculum since the early 1900s (Nutting & Dock, 1907), there is lack of nursing educational research as to ...

International Journal of First Aid Education
Background: Teaching first aid to laypeople is a cost-effective way to improve public health. However, it is currently unclear what the most effective ways are to teaching first aid. It has already been shown that simulated patients have an added value in teaching emergency care to healthcare professionals. This paper describes the protocol for a cluster-randomized controlled trial that will investigate the influence of using a simulated patient during basic first aid training for laypeople on their knowledge, skills and self-efficacy.
Hypothesis: The null hypothesis of this research is that the use of simulated patients during basic first aid training ...

Insights From A Pilot Study Of Naloxone Education, Tracey A. Taylor, Lucy Ellis, Penny Newell, Emily Oliver
International Journal of First Aid Education
Background and Aims: We wanted to test whether introducing an additional Naloxone component into overdose education would affect the willingness and confidence of a potential overdose witness to intervene effectively. A further aim was to test the potential of education to reduce barriers to administering Naloxone and barriers to calling 999 (UK Emergency services).
Methods: We used quantitative methods to gather and analyze data from both control (overdose education, n=15) and experimental (overdose and Naloxone education, n=57) participants, facilitated by educators in the North West of England and London, for opioid users (n=5), former users (n=19 ...
Short-Interval Self-Learning To Improve Retention Of Resuscitation Skills: A Randomized Controlled Trial, Ryuhei Sato, Chika Nishiyama, Kosuke Kiyohara, Makiko Sano, Tasuku Matsuyama, Tomonari Shimamoto, Toshihiro Hatakeyama, Taku Iwami
International Journal of First Aid Education
The optimal interval and methods for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) retraining remain unclear. We evaluated the difference in CPR skills one year after a 45-minute chest compression-only CPR training among participants receiving short self-learning refresher training at 3-month intervals, those receiving this training at 6-month intervals, and those without the refresher training.
Participants were randomly assigned to the 3-month group, 6-month group, or control group. Resuscitation skills were assessed immediately after the initial training, and at 1 year after the training. The primary endpoint was the number of chest compressions performed with appropriate depth one year after the training. Among 129 ...

Oncogenesis- Kaleidoscopic And Multi-Level Reality, 2019 Craiova University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Department of Surgery, 1 Tabaci Street, Craiova, Romania
Oncogenesis- Kaleidoscopic And Multi-Level Reality, Firmilian Calota, Cristian Mesina, Stelian Stefanita Mogoanta, Dragos Calota
Journal of Mind and Medical Sciences
Oncogenesis is an extremely complex phenomenon. The mechanisms by which cancer is induced is only partially known. Consequently, therapeutic targets may be uncertain and results are often unsatisfactory. The purpose of this paper is to develop a trans-level and multiple transdisciplinary perspective describing the kaleidoscopic reality of oncogenesis. This manner of understanding oncogenesis as a complex process characterized by a non-linear dynamic, far from equilibrium and with unpredictable evolution, transcends the classical perspective and requires a paradigm shift. This approach is also facilitated by recent studies that focus on group phenomena, with emerging behaviors in a continuous phase transition. Biological ...
