Relationship-centred practice is key to delivering quality care in care homes.

The key attributes are: be courageous, connect emotionally, be curious, consider other perspectives, collaborate, compromise and celebrate. This paper reports on a study to explore its relevance to the care home setting and the development of an educational intervention, based on the framework, to enhance development of human interaction...

BACKGROUND: Pregnancy termination for fetal abnormality (TFA) may have profound psychological consequences for those involved. Evidence suggests that women's experience of care influences their psychological adjustment to TFA and that they greatly value compassionate healthcare. Caring for women in these circumstances presents challenges for health professionals, which may relate to their understanding of women's experience. This qualitative study examined health professionals' perceptions of women's coping with TFA and assessed to what extent these perceptions are congruent with women's accounts...

This qualitative study employed semi-structured, audio-recorded interviews analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Purposive sampling was used to recruit nursing leaders (n=11) within one Community NHS Trust...

: 221 Background: To our knowledge, no study has examined adherence to antiemetic guidelines with soon-to-be-approved or newly approved chemotherapy agents. In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration approved 18 cancer drugs, underscoring the timeliness of this topic. Here, we hypothesize that patients prescribed new drugs are at risk for poor guideline adherence, and we report on antiemetic prescribing practices and outcomes with TAS-102, a recently approved drug for metastatic colorectal cancer...

Niemann-Pick type C (NP-C) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder. Management is mainly supportive and symptomatic. The investigational use of 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) showed a promising role in treating NP-C, although efficacy and safety have not been established. We conducted searches of MEDLINE, Cochrane, EMBASE, and other databases of reported cases of HP-β-CD compassionate use in NP-C disease. Sixteen reported cases were eligible, including evaluable information of 17 patients. The median onset age of HP-β-CD was 14 years (range 2-49 years)...

The dramatic growth of persons over 65 and the increased incidence of multiple, chronic illness has resulted in the need for more comprehensive healthcare. Geriatrics and palliative care are medical specialties pertinent to elderly, yet neither completely addresses the needs of older adults with chronic illness. Interprofessional faculty developed Geriatric Education Using a Palliative Care Framework (GEPaC) to teach an integrated approach to care. Interactive online modules use a variety of instructional methods, including case-based interactive questions, audio-visual presentations, reflective questions, and scenario-based tests...

BACKGROUND: Human papillomaviruses (HPV), the causative agent of anogenital warts, are the most prevalent sexually transmitted infectious agents, and wart treatment poses a persistent challenge. We assessed the safety and efficacy of treating HPV with ranpirnase, an endoribonuclease from the Northern Leopard frog that has been used extensively in Phase III oncology trials. METHODS: As initial verification of ranpirnase antiviral activity, we assessed its ability to eliminate papillomaviruses in cultured cells...

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with an incidence that is expected to increase in the coming years. Prostate cancer is usually diagnosed in men >65 years of age, thus the concurrent presence of cardiovascular diseases might influence the treatment, owing to the increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. The introduction of new drugs, such as abiraterone and enzalutamide for the management of metastatic disease has created further interest in treatment-related cardiovascular toxicities, although limited data from trials specifically designed to identify cardiovascular toxicities of these agents are currently available...
