#1
Nazarine T Jones, Charlotte Seckman
Best practice recommends the integration of clinical documentation into the hospital electronic health record to support safe, efficient, and timely patient care. A major barrier to successful adoption and optimization of computerized documentation systems is user satisfaction. The purpose of this descriptive, performance improvement initiative was to implement and evaluate user satisfaction with an electronic documentation system to facilitate successful adoption. The Clinical Procedure Flowsheets application was implemented in a geriatric extended care unit of a large healthcare system...

Tao He, Svetlana Farrell
Oral diseases, particularly caries and gingivitis, continue to be widespread. Incorporating a stabilized stannous fluoride dentifrice into patients' daily oral hygiene routine is a convenient, cost effective approach to improve and protect their oral health and the appearance of their smile. Unlike other common fluorides that only provide anti-caries benefits (e.g., sodium fluoride and sodium monofluorophosphate), stabilized stannous fluoride formulations have demonstrated broader and significantly greater protection, also reducing plaque, gingivitis, erosion, sensitivity, and halitosis...

Cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) chiral superstructures exhibit unique features; that is, polychromatic and spin-determined phase modulation. Here, a concept for digitalized chiral superstructures is proposed, which further enables the arbitrary manipulation of reflective geometric phase and may significantly upgrade existing optical apparatus. By encoding a specifically designed binary pattern, an innovative CLC optical vortex (OV) processor is demonstrated. Up to 25 different OVs are extracted with equal efficiency over a wavelength range of 116 nm...

The patterning of silicon surfaces by organic molecules emerges as an original way to fabricate innovative nanoelectronic devices. In this regard, we have studied how a diamine, N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (TMEDA, (CH3)2N-[CH2]2-N(CH3)2), chelates the silicon dimers of the Si(001)-2 × 1 surface. Starting from very low coverage to surface saturation (at 300 K), we used real-time scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in a scanning-while-dosing approach. The images show that the molecules can adopt two bonding configurations: the cross-trench (CT) configuration by bridging two adjacent dimer rows, and the end-bridge (EB) configuration by chelating two adjacent dimers in the same row...

Xingshu Li, Songyi Lee, Juyoung Yoon
Owing to its spatiotemporal selectivity and noninvasive nature, photodynamic therapy (PDT) has become a clinically promising approach for the treatment of a wide range of cancers and other diseases. However, the full potential of PDT has not been achieved thus far as a consequence of the lack of optimal photosensitizers (PSs) and/or smart transport/activation strategies. These problems, which unfortunately lie at the core of the PDT paradigm, include the oxygen reliance limits, the effect of PDT on hypoxic tumors, limitations of light penetration, and undesired skin photosensitization induced by "always on" PSs...

The pediatric rheumatic diseases are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases, posing a number of challenges for the use of traditional clinical and translational research approaches. Innovative comparative effectiveness approaches are needed to efficiently study treatment approaches and disease outcomes. The Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) developed the consensus treatment plan (CTP) approach as a comparative effectiveness tool for research in pediatric rheumatology. CTPs are treatment strategies, developed by consensus methods among CARRA members, intended to reduce variation in treatment approaches, standardize outcome measurements, and allow for comparison of the effectiveness of different approaches with the goal of improving disease outcomes...

Dialysis care is an integral part of the practice of nephrology. Despite this, education of fellows in providing dialysis often remains rudimentary, relying on a combination of didactics and learning through experience. This runs the risk of training nephrologists who can provide dialysis care without truly being experts on the subject. In this article, a collection of novel or innovative teaching methods is presented that are meant to provide training programs with additional tools with which to improve the training of their fellows in dialysis...

Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most frequent bone-forming malignancy in children and adolescents. Concerning its molecular landscape, there is no a direct relationship with a specific gene, but a combination of genetic events. A broad spectrum of activated oncogenes and downregulated suppressor genes has been already explored and considered crucial for its progressive pathogenesis. Mechanisms of gene deregulation include amplifications, point mutations, allelic losses and also epigenetic abnormalities such as aberrant promoter methylation...
