This article will highlight and provide selected examples of existing community services. It will attempt to serve as a reminder and reference for providers to help them improve efforts at utilizing available resources and perhaps institute new services. Coordinating care across all aspects of delivery can help achieve improved control of population health and chronic disease. Community resources can assist the efforts of providers in delivering more complete and continuous care. Those in health care are aided when a collaborative effort is used to help improve care...

Population health management (PHM) is a new health care model being implemented. It has been defined as "the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group." This includes health outcomes and patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions that link these two. Moving from a fee-for-service payment system to a quality- or value-based system, this model places on the clinician more responsibility for the costs of health care and its reimbursements...

Rising costs, poorer outcomes, and dissatisfied patients have challenged medical systems to rethink their approach to health care delivery. Although up to 70 percent of primary care visits stem from psychosocial issues, behavioral health services have traditionally occurred in separate buildings and systems. In order to decrease barriers and meet patients' and providers' needs, primary care practices have begun integrating behavioral health professionals into their clinics. Various levels of integration exist, but the best models fully integrate behavioral health clinicians into primary care teams, allowing for seamless collaboration...

H Bruce Vogt, Jeremy J Vogt
Health care reform has focused on improving health care delivery, quality, and patient safety. An interprofessional, team-based approach to health care is considered by many experts to be essential to meeting these goals. The evidence for this is growing. Core principles for team-based care and the interprofessional competencies necessary for a team to function effectively have been identified and can be taught. Resources for interprofessional education, which must begin at the health professions student level, are available to academic institutions, healthcare systems, and professional organizations to prepare students and current health care professionals for this cultural change...

A central question important to understanding DNA repair is how certain proteins are able to search for, detect, and fix DNA damage on a biologically relevant timescale. A feature of many base excision repair proteins is that they contain [4Fe4S] clusters that may aid their search for lesions. In this report, we establish the importance of the oxidation state of the redox-active [4Fe4S] cluster in the DNA damage detection process. We utilize DNA-modified electrodes to generate repair proteins with [4Fe4S] clusters in the 2+ and 3+ states by bulk electrolysis under an O2-free atmosphere...

With the growth of scholarly collaboration networks and social communication platforms, members of the scholarly community are experimenting with their approach to disseminating research outputs, in an effort to increase their audience and outreach. However, from a researcher's point of view, it is difficult to determine whether efforts to make work more visible are worthwhile (in terms of the association with publication metrics) and within that, difficult to assess which platform or network is most effective for sharing work and connecting to a wider audience...

BACKGROUND: Since its initial detection in Brazil in 2015, Zika Virus (ZIKV) has spread rapidly throughout most of the Caribbean and South, Central and North America. An upsurge in congenital syndrome associated with ZIKV and Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has been associated with the increase in ZIKV. This amplification in numbers led to the need for funded research initiatives focusing on various countries globally and on specific experimental types. OBJECTIVES: To determine the financial institutions involved in the production of primary research into the ZIKV epidemic...

Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria remain the only countries where the transmission of endemic wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) continues (1). This report describes polio eradication activities, progress, and challenges in Afghanistan during January 2016-June 2017 and updates previous reports (2,3). Thirteen WPV1 cases were confirmed in Afghanistan in 2016, a decrease of seven from the 20 cases reported in 2015. From January to June 2017, five WPV1 cases were reported, compared with six during the same period in 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Dynamic tests of fluid responsiveness have been developed and investigated in clinical trials of goal-directed therapy. The impact of this approach on clinically relevant outcomes is unknown. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate whether fluid therapy guided by dynamic assessment of fluid responsiveness compared with standard care improves clinically relevant outcomes in adults admitted to the ICU. DATA SOURCES: Randomized controlled trials from MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL, clinicaltrials...

Fragmentation of health care negatively impacts quality; one of the contributing factors may be ineffective collaboration among health care professionals. This article describes the implementation of an interprofessional education curriculum for graduate students enrolled in nursing, psychology, and speech-language pathology programs. Over 3 semesters, students engaged in interprofessional collaboration modules, unfolding case studies, virtual simulation, and shared case planning experiences. The curriculum's impact on students' attitudes and values toward interprofessional collaborative practice was measured...

Physicians' experience with high quality training in breastfeeding during their medical education is historically varied. The process of becoming a board-certified physician entails more than 20 years of education, and although medical school and residency training timelines and courses are relatively standardized across the United States and even internationally, breastfeeding education varies greatly across schools and programs. The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) exists, in part, because historically, physicians have received too little clinical training in breastfeeding and infant nutrition...

Importance: To prevent subsequent unintended pregnancy, contraception should be initiated soon after surgical and medical abortion. Evidence regarding the safety of postabortion contraception, especially for longacting reversible methods, has accumulated in recent years. Objective: This review seeks to provide up-to-date recommendations about the provision and timing of contraception after surgical and medical abortion. Evidence Acquisition: Recommendations are based on the US Medical Eligibility Criteria (MEC) or on the authors' review of the current literature for topics that the MEC does not address...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of displaced midshaft clavicle fractures remains controversial. METHODS: We undertook a multicenter randomized controlled trial to compare effectiveness and safety between nonoperative management and ORIF (open reduction and internal fixation) for displaced midshaft clavicle fractures in adults. Three hundred and one eligible adult patients were randomized to 1 of the 2 treatment groups and followed at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 9 months after recruitment...
