Despite research supporting measurement-based care grounded in standardized progress measures, such measures are underutilized by clinicians. Individualized measures of client-specific targets present an alternative, but little is known about their acceptability or use. We compared attitudes toward and use of standardized and individualized progress measures in a national sample of 504 clinicians. Clinicians reported neutral to positive attitudes toward both types of measures, but strongly preferred and were more likely to use individualized measures...

To investigate canine kobuvirus (CaKoV) infection in southwest China, 107 fecal samples were collected from dogs with obvious diarrhea in Sichuan and Chongqing regions, China. CaKoV infection was detected in 54 diarrheic samples (50.46%) by RT-PCR targeting a partial fragment (504 bp) of the 3D gene. Comparison of these partial 3D gene sequences from 14 of these CaKoV-positive samples show 95.4%-99.0% nucleotide (nt) identity within this group, and nt identities ranging from 93.1% to 98.2% with previously reported CaKoV 3D gene sequences...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Several questionnaires to screen for eating disorders have been validated in Malaysia. However, these tools are lengthy, and require specialist interpretation. The sick, control, one stone, fat, food (SCOFF) is easy to administer by non-specialists, but has not been validated in Malaysia. Therefore, the aim of our study was to validate the SCOFF on a non-clinical sample of tertiary students to determine if it could identify individuals with an eating disorder. METHODS: We recruited second year tertiary students from five faculties in a university in Malaysia, from June-November 2014, who could understand English...

INTRODUCTION: Higher contact force (CF) theoretically increases the risk of blood charring, diminishing lesion formation. We aimed to investigate the relationship between CF, impedance change and char formation during pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). METHODS: CF was assessed during PVI in 65 patients. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with power-controlled mode was applied in the point-by-point manner. The RFA were divided into 5 groups: group-A [CF < 10 g], group-B (10 g≤CF < 20 g), group-C (20 g≤CF < 30 g), group-D (30 g≤CF < 40 g), and group-E (CF≥40 g)...

OBJECTIVE: There are several prognostic indices (PIs) to predict overall survival (OS) in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) patients. Before using a clinical prediction model in the actual clinical setting, empiric evaluation of its performance based on datasets that were not used to develop the model (i.e., external validation) is essential. The purpose of this study was to conduct an external validation of the PIs for MPM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed on MPM patients treated at 2 tertiary hospitals in Japan between 2007 and 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent shoulder instability after arthroscopic Bankart repair is still a common complication. For primary Bankart repair studies have shown that the rotator cuff can recover completely. The ability of muscles to regenerate after arthroscopic revision Bankart repair (ARBR) has not been studied. Does the ARBR using a three-portal method allows complete muscle integrity compared with an uninjured imaging control group (ICG)? MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-two (1 female, 21 males) physically active patients (mean age at follow-up 28...

We examined the role of self-efficacy in preventing bystander inaction in dangerous alcohol situations. Participants (N = 504) completed an online survey that assessed whether they had previously witnessed or intervened in alcohol-related emergencies, their self-efficacy for intervening, and their likelihood of intervening in the future. Previously intervening was positively associated with self-efficacy and likelihood of intervening in the future. Furthermore, self-efficacy mediated the association between previously intervening and likelihood of intervening in the future...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is among the top causes of death 1 year after heart transplantation (HTx). Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is a potential alternative to invasive imaging in the diagnosis of CAV. However, the higher heart rate (HR) of HTx recipients prompts the use of retrospective ECG-gating, which is associated with higher radiation dose, a major concern in this patient population. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the feasibility and image quality of low-radiation-dose prospectively ECG-triggered coronary CTA in HTx recipients...
