The shortage of nursing professionals in the United States is unquestionable. This shortage, which is predicted to continue into the foreseeable future, is a particularly salient problem within the nursing profession. This is especially true for long-term care facility administrators who not only are faced with the challenge of increasing numbers of aging residents but also regularly struggle with turnover among more cost-effective nursing staff, such as licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The primary purpose of this study was to examine whether perceived interpersonal conflict influences organizational commitment among LPNs...

BACKGROUND: In Canada, all nurses are required to engage in evidence-based practice (EBP) as an entry-to-practice competency; however, there is little research that examines Licensed Practical Nurses' (LPNs') information seeking behaviors or preferred sources of knowledge to conduct EBP. AIMS: Due to the differences in education and roles of LPNs and Registered Nurses (RNs), it is both necessary and important to gain an understanding of how LPNs utilize evidence in their unique nursing practice...

A projector-based augmented reality intracorporeal system (PARIS) is presented that includes a miniature tracked projector, tracked marker, and laparoscopic ultrasound (LUS) transducer. PARIS was developed to improve the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN). In particular, it has been demonstrated to effectively assist in the identification of tumor boundaries during surgery and to improve the surgeon's understanding of the underlying anatomy. PARIS achieves this by displaying the orthographic projection of the cancerous tumor on the kidney's surface...

A critical problem for developing personalized treatment plans for cognitive disruptions is the lack of understanding how individual differences influence cognition. Recognition memory is one cognitive ability that varies from person to person and that variation may be related to different genetic phenotypes. One gene that may impact recognition memory is the monoamine oxidase A gene ( MAO-A ), which influences the transcription rate of MAO-A. Examination of how MAO-A phenotypes impact behavioral and event-related potentials (ERPs) correlates of recognition memory may help explain individual differences in recognition memory performance...

To elucidate ideal strategy of treatment for advanced lower rectal cancer, we investigated 11 patients with clinically suspected lateral pelvic node(LPN)metastasis among 36 patients who received neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy(NCRT). Nodal metastasis was diagnosed as positive when the major axis of a lymph node was over 7mm in computed tomography(CT). Both tumor and nodal downstaging were observed in CT after NCRT; pathological complete response and ypN0 was obtained in 2(18.2%)and 6(54.5%)cases, respectively, and positive LPN was observed only in 2 cases...

We investigated whether the late posterior negativity (LPN) is a component linked to stimulus retrieval or rather to complex, higher-order stimulus evaluation processes or response preparation processes. Participants performed three separate tasks across separate sessions: an encoding task, a memory recognition task, and a visual discrimination task. In the visual discrimination task, the difficulty of stimulus evaluation was manipulated via stimuli varying in complexity (easy vs. moderately difficult) and duration of stimulus presentation (short vs...

Resection of completely endophytic renal tumors is a huge challenge for surgeons due to a lack of definite visual clues, especially in the laparoscopic approach. Three-dimensional (3D) kidney models, which can illustrate the clear relationship between renal masses and surrounding health tissues, were considered as reliable tools for understanding renal tumor characteristics in previous studies. We hypothesized that 3D kidney models can be used not only for planning but also for navigating laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) in patients with completely endophytic renal tumors...
