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...

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...

INTRODUCTION: The increase in obesity rates in the U.S. and other less developed industrial countries have led to a worldwide epidemic of chronic disease states. Increased obesity rates are implicated in the treatment failures for illnesses such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, heart failure, hypertension and cancer. Effective prevention of obesity through diet and exercise contributes to the successful medical management of multiple chronic disease states. OBJECTIVE: Review the last 10 years of literature (2006-2016) on the effects of diet and exercise as they relate to the prevention of chronic disease...

Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative illness after Alzheimer's disease. In its advanced stages, it is characterized by various special symptoms. In addition to non-motor signs, motor complications are most prominent and most often can only be inadequately improved with pulsatile oral therapies. However, with the aid of continuous dopaminergic stimulation, improvements can be achieved even in advanced stages of the disease. This will not only alleviate motor and non-motor symptoms, but will also lead to a better quality of life...

OBJECTIVE: After remission of an anxiety disorder, subjects often experience persistent functional impairments. We examined whether impairments in mental and physical functioning following remission are a continuation of premorbid lower functioning (trait effect), due to impairments that develop during the anxiety disorder and persist beyond recovery (scar effect), or both. METHODS: Data were derived from the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study-2 (NEMESIS-2), a prospective psychiatric epidemiologic study among the general population with a 3-wave design (6-year follow-up, with the study starting in 2007 and ending in 2015)...

Malignant mesothelioma is a malignant tumor on the pleura or the peritoneum caused mostly by asbestos. Although asbestos is not currently used in South Korea, the incidence of mesothelioma is increasing due to its long latent period. This study predicted the incidence of malignant mesothelioma in South Korea over the next 20 years using an age-period-cohort (APC) model. Data regarding mesothelioma incidence from 1994-2013 were acquired from the Korea Central Cancer Registry (KCCR). Demographic data, including prospective resident data, were acquired from the Korean Statistical Information Service (KOSIS) for 1994-2033...

Hypertension is an important and common risk factor for heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death in adults in the United States. Despite considerable improvement in increasing the awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension, undiagnosed and uncontrolled hypertension remain public health challenges (1). Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) were used to estimate the prevalence of hypertension, as well as awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension among adults aged ≥18 years in Los Angeles County compared with adults aged ≥18 years in the United States during 1999-2006 and 2007-2014...

Essential tremor (ET) is among the most common neurological movement disorders that causes postural or action tremors, with an estimated prevalence nationwide of less than 3% of the population. The incidence of ET increases with age but often affects younger adults and has a familial trait association. Depending on disease progression, ET can cause significant limitations for individuals, in many cases, significantly limiting their ability to perform activities of daily living and occupational responsibilities...

Protein tyrosine phosphatase-1B (PTP1B) is an important negative regulator of insulin receptor- and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-dependent signalings in endothelial cells. Genetic or pharmacological inhibition of PTP1B has been shown to enhance endothelial cell proliferation and migration, and increase nitric oxide production. In vivo, inhibiting PTP1B can reverse endothelial dysfunction, promote angiogenesis, and accelerate wound healing. Intense research is currently continuing in an effort to discover novel selective PTP1B inhibitors, primarily for treating insulin resistance...
