Soroush Abedi, Tavakol Pakizeh
Optical nano-antennas' capability for controlling the intensity and direction of freely propagating waves is a precursor to demanding on-chip optical communications. Here we present a novel and efficiently packed Yagi-Uda (P-YU) nano-antenna which is dramatically directive and shortened. This is due to the excitation of a pair of strong interacting Au nanorods as a feed in the form of conventional Yagi-Uda (YU). Using a sophisticated feed with a unidirectional radiation pattern in a wavelength close to the antiphase hybridized plasmon causes significant directionality in the designed nano-antennas' emission...

OBJECTIVES: The Quebec Emergency Department Management Guide (QEDMG) is a unique document with 78 recommendations designed to improve the organization of emergency departments (EDs) in the province of Quebec. However, no study has examined how this guide is perceived or used by rural health care management. METHODS: We invited all directors of professional services (DPS), directors of nursing services (DNS), head nurses (HN), and emergency department directors (EDD) working in Quebec's rural hospitals to complete an online survey (144 questions)...

Liang Wu, Huai Sun
The understanding of cholesteric liquid crystals at a molecular level is challenging. Limited insights are available to bridge between molecular structures and macroscopic chiral organization. In the present study, we introduce a novel coarse-grained (CG) molecular model, which is represented by flexible chain particles with helical interactions (FCh), to study the liquid crystalline phase behavior of cholesteric molecules such as double strand DNA and α-helix polypeptides using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations...

Factors at the level of family/healthcare worker-, organization- and system are neglected in medication nonadherence research in heart transplantation (HTx). The four-continent, eleven-country cross-sectional BRIGHT study used multi-staged sampling to examine 36 HTx centers, including 36 HTx directors, 100 clinicians, and 1397 patients. Nonadherence to immunosuppressants-defined as any deviation in taking or timing adherence and/or dose reduction-was assessed using the BAASIS® interview. Guided by the Integrative Model of Behavioral Prediction and Bronfenbrenner's ecological model, we analyzed factors at these multiple levels using sequential logistic regression analysis (6 blocks)...

Nutritional genomics is a growing area of research. Research has shown registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) have limited knowledge of genetics. Limited research is available regarding how didactic programs in dietetics (DPDs) meet the genetics knowledge requirement of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®). The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which the study of nutritional genomics is incorporated into undergraduate DPDs in response to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics position statement on nutritional genomics...

The 2015-2017 American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Special Taskforce on Diversifying our Investment in Human Capital was appointed for a two-year term, due to the rigors and complexities of its charges. This report serves as a white paper for academic pharmacy on diversifying our investment in human capital. The Taskforce developed and recommended a representation statement that was adapted and adopted by the AACP House of Delegates at the 2016 AACP Annual Meeting. In addition, the Taskforce developed a diversity statement for the Association that was adopted by the AACP Board of Directors in 2017...

Graduate education in the pharmaceutical sciences is a cornerstone of research within pharmacy schools. Pharmaceutical scientists are critical contributors to addressing the challenges of new drug discovery, delivery, and optimal care in order to ensure improved therapeutic outcomes in populations of patients. The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) charged the 2016-2017 Research and Graduate Affairs Committee (RGAC) to define the competencies necessary for graduate education in the pharmaceutical sciences (Charge 1), recommend collaborative curricular development across schools of pharmacy (Charge 2), recommend AACP programing for graduate education (Charge 3), and provide guidance on emerging areas for innovation in graduate education (Charge 4)...

BACKGROUND: Opioid addiction and overdose are epidemic in the U.S. Victims of traumatic injury are at greater than average risk for opioid misuse and related complications. Potential risk screens and preventive interventions in this clinical population remain under-investigated. The current project seeks to develop and pilot the implementation of a screening tool for opioid risk at American College of Surgeons (ACS) Level I and Level II trauma centers. METHODS: The project began with an online survey, which was sent to Wisconsin trauma center medical directors and trauma coordinators for the purpose of gathering information on current substance use screening practices...
