INTRODUCTION: Dizziness is a common symptom in general practice with a high prevalence among older adults. The most common cause of dizziness in general practice is peripheral vestibular disease. Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) is a safe and effective treatment for peripheral vestibular disease that entails specific exercises to maximise the central nervous system compensation for the effects of vestibular pathology. An internet-based VR intervention has recently been shown to be safe and effective...

BACKGROUND: The current literature indicates that a considerable number of patients in ovarian carcinoma clinical trials have histopathological diagnoses in conflict with inclusion criteria. It has been suggested that specialised pathology review prior to randomisation should become the standard procedure in study protocols. We hypothesised that our new, internet-based high-throughput infrastructure would be capable of providing specialised pathology review within 10 working days (w.d...

BACKGROUND: High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation. This study intended to review HIFU to explain the fundamentals of HIFU, evaluate the evidence concerning the role of HIFU in the treatment of prostate cancer (PC), review the technologies used to perform HIFU and the published clinical literature regarding the procedure as a primary treatment for PC. MATERIAL/METHODS: Studies addressing HIFU in localized PC were identified in a search of internet scientific databases...

The best practice in the primary care initiative was carried out in the UK to collate an evidence-based knowledge resource for primary care to in order to support better use of laboratory tests. The initiative examined a series of approximately 150 clinical questions and produced brief vignettes accompanied by core bullet point guidance. These were published in a review series in the Journal of Clinical Pathology and then assembled into a website to allow rapid easy access.Whereas previous studies have suggested that 'data pull', i...

PURPOSE: Creating an effective platform for multidisciplinary tumor conferences can be challenging in the rural community setting. The Duke Cancer Network created an Internet-based platform for a multidisciplinary conference to enhance the care of patients with lung cancer. This conference incorporates providers from different physical locations within a rural community and affiliated providers from a university-based cancer center 2 hours away. An electronic Web conferencing tool connects providers aurally and visually...

This technical note presents the development of a methodological laboratory niche Web site. The "Grossing Technology in Surgical Pathology" ( Web site is used as an example. Although common steps in creation of most Web sites are followed, there are particular requirements for structuring the template's menu on methodological laboratory Web sites. The "nested doll principle," in which one object is placed inside another, most adequately describes the methodological approach to laboratory Web site design...

Type II lesions are common lesions encountered in overhead athletes with controversies arising in term of timing for treatment, surgical approach, rehabilitation and functional results. The aim of our study was to evaluate the outcomes of arthroscopic repair of type II SLAP tears in overhead athletes, focusing on the time elapsed from diagnosis and treatment, time needed to return to sport, rate of return to sport and to previous level of performance, providing an overview concerning evidence for the effectiveness of different surgical approaches to type II SLAP tears in overhead athletes...

The contributors to this special issue of The Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session have given us a wide range of ideas about technology use among children and adolescents, illustrated with rich clinical material. Of the many interesting issues they raise, I briefly discuss four that are particularly salient: the interaction of technology with personality and development; the concept of Internet addiction; the importance of adult guidance and limit setting; and technology and clinical creativity. Taken as a whole, these papers suggest that while technology can certainly contribute to and help create pathology, it can also contribute to growth, and that in either case technology interacts with fundamental human needs and developmental processes...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: At the authors' institutions, faculty members and trainees work at multiple sites scattered miles apart, making it difficult to physically attend weekly teaching conferences. As a possible solution, a weekly online musculoskeletal teaching conference was undertaken. This quickly grew to include multiple other sites around North America. The authors share their experiences to assist other radiologists in organizing similar educational conferences. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The conferences are run using the Citrix GoToMeeting online meeting system...

BACKGROUND: "Case reports" is the title of a column in the Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association devoted to educational patient histories accompanied by an expert commentary. The aim of this study is to describe the patients and authors in this column since its introduction in 1999. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The study is based on electronic literature searches in the Journal's internet archive (2000-2011) supplemented by manual searches in the printed edition (1999)...

Genetically engineered mice and rats are increasingly used as models for exploring disease progression and mechanisms. The full spectrum of anatomic, biochemical, and functional changes that develop in novel, genetically engineered mouse and rat lines must be cataloged before predictions regarding the significance of the mutation may be extrapolated to diseases in other vertebrate species, including humans. A growing list of reference materials, including books, journal articles, and websites, has been produced in the last 2 decades to assist researchers in phenotyping newly engineered rodent lines...

The current research sought to identify the types of informal learning behaviours speech-language pathologists (SLPs) working in healthcare settings engage in as well as SLPs' motivations for engaging in informal learning. Twenty-four American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)-certified SLPs participated in this qualitative study. Data collection consisted of computer-mediated interviews, online journaling, and a virtual focus group. These textual data were coded and collapsed into themes. All participant SLPs reported that they learned through collaboration (inter- and intra-disciplinary), worked with patients to learn through trial-and-error, and consulted non-peer-reviewed material on the internet as well as peer-reviewed research in order to learn informally in the workplace...

OBJECTIVE: To review the clinical-pathologic features of heparin induced thrombocytopaenia/thrombosis. DATA SOURCES: Reputable haematology journals and the internet in English. Searches included thrombosis, heparin, and heparin induced thrombocytopaenia...

PURPOSE: The Babinski sign is a finding known since the start of the teachings of physical diagnosis by almost all medical students. This reflex is an incredibly helpful phenomenon that enables physicians to distinguish between central and the peripheral nervous system diseases right at the bedside. Yet, most students as well as physicians remain oblivious to the remarkable history behind the Babinski sign and what it means to evolutional history of the modern neurological exam. We intend to study the birth of the "signe de l'eventail" (the fanning sign) and how it transformed medical diagnosis as we practice it today...
