Since 2015 a significant increase in tuberculosis cases is notified in Germany, mostly due to rising numbers of migrants connected to the recent refugee crisis. Because of the low incidence in previous years, knowledge on tuberculosis is more and more limited to specialized centers. However, lung specialist and healthcare workers of other fields have contact to an increasing number of tuberculosis patients. In this situation, guidance for the management of standard therapy and especially for uncommon situations will be essential...

Retronychia, the posterior embedding of the nail bed into the proximal nail fold, can be a complex clinical dermatologic diagnosis that may mimic other inflammatory ungual diseases or tumors of the nail. It has been related to a history of severe systemic conditions that secondarily affect the nail matrix and is commonly associated with onychomadesis. We present a case of retronychia of the foot with a purely traumatic origin, nonconcomitant with onychomadesis, that was diagnosed by color Doppler ultrasound in a long-time practitioner of martial arts who was otherwise healthy...

With a paucity of literature on professional organization membership by nurse practitioners (NPs), the authors base the discussion of the personal benefits associated with membership on literature focusing on clinicians other than NPs and their personal experiences as members of multiple organizations. Membership is described as related to NP socialization, engagement, networking, mentorship, advocacy, policy, leadership development, research dissemination, professional development, and volunteerism. In addition to encouraging active participation in one or more professional organizations, the need for research into factors influencing the degree to which NPs participate in organizations and the associated benefits is identified...

Nature in cities is concentrated in urban green spaces, which are key areas for urban biodiversity and also important areas to connect people with nature. To conserve urban biodiversity within these natural refugia, habitat restoration such as weed control and revegetation is often implemented. These actions are expected to benefit biodiversity, although species known to be affected by urbanization may not be interacting with restoration in the ways we anticipate. In this study, we use a case study to explore how urban restoration activities impact different bird species...

BACKGROUND: Conversations about goals of care in hospital are important to patients who have advanced heart failure (HF). METHODS: We conducted a multi-centre survey of cardiology nurses, fellows, and cardiologists at 8 Canadian teaching hospitals. The primary outcome was the importance of barriers to goals of care discussions in hospital (1=extremely unimportant; 7=extremely important). We also elicited perspectives on roles of different practitioners in having these conversations...

Our response to the Great British Medallist (GBM) study focuses on three concerns. First, we discuss the extent to which the findings presented are actually novel and offer practitioners genuine guidance and information about how to structure talent development pathways. Second, we suggest that a lack of critical consideration of the findings against the considerable body of knowledge that already exists in this domain is a significant limitation. Finally, and most pertinently from a practitioner perspective, we highlight our concerns about the extent to which the findings presented may be prematurely adopted by practitioners without a genuinely appropriate evidence base...

Insomnia disorder is a high prevalence condition with a high disease burden, which, left untreated, can increase risk of poorer health outcomes. Due to Insomnia's tendency towards having a chronic course, long-term treatment approaches are required to reduce the impact of Insomnia over time. After reviewing the available literature, The Australasian Sleep Association (ASA) recommends Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) as a first line treatment in the management of Insomnia. The ASA notes that in addition to CBT-I, there is emerging evidence for the use of Mindfulness Based Therapy for Insomnia when used in combination with behavioural techniques (MBT-I)...

Patients with complex chronic pain conditions are often difficult to treat with analgesia alone. Psychosocial intervention is needed to help them gain control and find an appropriate level of activity. This article summarizes the possibilities of psychosocial treatment of pain patients at the general practitioners and in specialist units of multidisciplinary pain treatment. The theoretical frame used is cognitive behavioural therapy. In practice, psychoeducation, mindfulness, and relaxation exercises are introduced to the patients to help them with daily life activity and work...

BACKGROUND: Despite the alarming prevalence of neuropsychiatric disorders in South Africa, mental health care remains under-resourced. The Mental Health Framework Policy of South Africa outlined the objective to integrate mental health into primary health care. The aim is to make mental health care more accessible, affordable and acceptable. Practitioners, however, find the application of the policy challenging. The identification of challenges can guide efforts to create conditions favourable to the implementation of the policy...

Although fractures are associated with short-term reductions in functional status, there is limited information on longer-term burden of fracture. This study documents evidence of an association between fractures and significant declines and functional health and activities that persist but attenuate beyond two years. INTRODUCTION: Although fractures are associated with short-term reductions in functional status and may have other short-term effects on healthcare utilization (hospitalization and follow-up care), there is limited information on long-term burden of fracture beyond 12 to 24 months post-fracture...
