BACKGROUND: The number of people with intellectual disability and dementia increases; this combination causes behavioural changes. Dementia Care Mapping (DCM) supports staff in dementia care in nursing homes and may be useful in intellectual disability-care. This qualitative study examines the feasibility of DCM for older people with intellectual disability and dementia. METHODS: The present authors obtained data in focus groups and interviews with professional users and analysed using a framework for feasibility studies...

Mentoring skills are valuable assets for academic medicine and allied health faculty, who influence and help shape the careers of the next generation of healthcare providers. Mentors are role models who also act as guides for students' personal and professional development over time. Mentors can be instrumental in conveying explicit academic knowledge required to master curriculum content. Importantly, they can enhance implicit knowledge about the "hidden curriculum" of professionalism, ethics, values, and the art of medicine not learned from texts...

REVIEW
Carolyn Rabin
The aim of this review was to determine the impact of a cancer diagnosis and history on young adults' ability to initiate and maintain romantic relationships. MedLine and PsycInfo databases were used to identify articles that address dating, romantic relationships, or marriage among 18- to 45-year-old cancer survivors. Twenty-one relevant articles were identified. Findings indicate that young adult cancer survivors struggle with when/how to disclose their cancer history to potential partners, are delayed in initiating their first romantic relationships, have fewer romantic relationships than peers, and are less likely than peers to marry...

Although the organisation of mental health service users and ex-users in Latin America is a recent and under-researched phenomenon, global calls for their involvement in policy have penetrated national agendas, shaping definitions and expectations about their role in mental health systems. In this context, how such groups react to these expectations and define their own goals, strategies and partnerships can reveal the specificity of the "user movement" in Chile and Latin America. This study draws on Jacques Rancière's theorisation of "police order" and "politics" to understand the emergence of users' collective identity and activism, highlighting the role of practices of disengagement and rejection...

At the end of life patients often show distressful symptoms which significantly reduce their quality of life. The goal of all healthcare professionals should be to recognize the beginning of this end of life period in order to provide good symptom management. For this purpose, existing symptoms have to be recorded, suitable therapeutic goals have to be defined for the current situation and potential therapeutic strategies have to be individually formulated. Besides the identification of underlying causes with the possibility of causal treatment, a symptom-based therapy is often necessary...

INTRODUCTION: 1.2 million people in the UK have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that causes breathlessness, difficulty with daily activities, infections and hospitalisation. Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), a programme of supervised exercise and education, is recommended for patients with COPD. However, only 1 in 10 of those who need it receive PR. Also, the UK National COPD Audit Programme concluded that the COPD treatment might not be accessible to people with disabilities...

BACKGROUND: The internet offers major opportunities in supporting mental health care, and a variety of technology-mediated mental and behavioral health services have been developed. Yet, despite growing evidence for the effectiveness of these services, their acceptance and use in clinical practice remains low. So far, the current literature still lacks a structured insight into the experienced drivers and barriers to the adoption of electronic mental health (eMental health) from the perspective of clinical psychologists...

BACKGROUND: Primary care health professionals, especially family physicians, see a variety of wounds, and yet-despite the frequency of providing wound care-many family physicians do not feel confident in wound care management. This is partly due to a lack of formal wound education in Family Medicine programs. While there are numerous electronic wound care resources available in the UK and North America, none were identified that address the specific need in supporting clinical decision-making in wound dressing selection...

BACKGROUND: Recent clinical practice guidelines from major national organizations, including a joint United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD) committee, have substantially changed recommendations for the use of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications after years of relative stability. Because statin medications are among the most commonly prescribed treatments in the United States, any change in their use may have significant implications for patients and providers alike...

BACKGROUND: Traditional clinical surveillance relied on the results from clinical trials and observational studies of administrative databases. However, these studies not only required many valuable resources but also faced a very long time lag. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to illustrate a practical application of the National Taiwan University Hospital Clinical Surveillance System (NCSS) in the identification of patients with an osteoporotic fracture and to provide a high reusability infrastructure for longitudinal clinical data...

REVIEW
Kaitlyn Reasoner, Mihir J Desai, Donald H Lee
Medical professionals are often regarded as influential community figures, yet their actual civic engagement may not match these expectations. Physicians certainly have a commitment to their own patients, but principles of medical ethics and professionalism suggest that physicians are also responsible for treating patients who lack access to care. Physician volunteerism is beneficial for entire communities, but can be particularly transformative for uninsured, underinsured, or geographically isolated patients...

BACKGROUND: Emergency department (ED) visits are increasing among patients ≥65 years of age. Geriatric EDs (GED) provide specialized emergency care for this older population. Interdisciplinary education of GED staff and providers is needed as part of the development of a GED. OBJECTIVES: We sought to describe the effective use of a GED bootcamp as an educational mechanism for the introduction of a GED to a health system. METHODS: An all-day, in-person GED bootcamp was held on the campus of our health system's medical school campus and was led by experts in geriatric emergency care...

Drug eruption is defined as an adverse cutaneous eruption secondary to drug intake. The most frequent variation is a morbilliform exanthema, although the clinical presentations may vary widely. The diagnosis is clinical, why thorough medical history and assessment are essential for the risk stratification of possible adverse cutaneous reaction. In Western hospitals, the prevalence is estimated to be 2-3% of the patients. Identification of the condition is therefore important for all healthcare professionals...
