This cross-sectional research aimed to analyze the psychological demand and work control self-reported by the Education Administrative Technicians of a public university. This is a complete sample selection consisting of 833 Education Administrative Technicians who self-completed a questionnaire with questions structured in 2013/2014. A descriptive bivariate analysis was performed with the calculation of psychosocial stress at work, using the Demand-Control Model quadrants categorized as: low-demand work (low-demand and high-control), reference group, passive work (low-demand and low-control), active work (high-demand and high-control), high-demand (high-demand and low-control) - group with the highest exposure...

Calibration 2.000 was initiated 20 years ago for standardization and harmonization of medical tests. The program also intended to evaluate adequate implementation of the In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) 98/79/EC directive, in order to ensure that medical tests are fit-for-clinical purpose. The Calibration 2.000 initiative led to ongoing verification of test standardization and harmonization in the Netherlands using commutable external quality assessment (EQA)-tools and a type 1 EQA-design, where feasible. National support was guaranteed by involving all laboratory professionals as well as laboratory technicians responsible for EQA and quality officers...

BACKGROUND: Most prospective studies involving individuals receiving maintenance dialysis have been small, and many have had poor clinical translatability. Research relevance can be enhanced through stakeholder engagement. However, little is known about dialysis clinic stakeholders' perceptions of research participation and facilitation. The objective of this study was to characterize the perspectives of dialysis clinic stakeholders (patients, clinic personnel, and medical providers) on: (1) research participation by patients and (2) research facilitation by clinic personnel and medical providers...

PURPOSE: To estimate the prevalence and correlates of visual impairment in Mahabubnagar district, Telangana, India. METHODS: Fifty-one clusters of 80 people (all ages) were sampled with probability proportionate to size. Households within clusters were selected through the compact segment sampling. Visual acuity (VA) was measured with a tumbling "E" chart. An Ophthalmic Assistant or Vision Technician examined people with VA<6/12 in either eye. Other impairments (hearing, physical) were clinically assessed and self-reported functional difficulties measured using the Washington Group Extended Set...

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy) is the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals and the association that represents credentialed nutrition and dietetics practitioners-nutrition and dietetics technicians, registered (NDTRs) and registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs). An NDTR's scope of practice in nutrition and dietetics has flexible boundaries to capture the depth and breadth of the individual's practice. The NDTR's practice expands with advances in many areas, including nutrition, food production, food safety, food systems management, health care, public health, community health, and information and communication technology...

BACKGROUND: Protocols for neonatal care and mother-baby interaction at cesarean birth frequently differ from those at vaginal birth. There is increasing interest in adopting family-friendly or gentle protocols for women having cesarean birth. Current evidence suggests challenges in achieving interdepartmental cooperation and consensus are potential barriers to implementing gentle cesarean protocols. PURPOSE: To describe how care providers' professional role and characteristics may affect perception about gentle cesarean birth techniques and inform specific concerns about protocol changes...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Green cytoplasmic inclusions in neutrophils are an uncommon finding on the peripheral blood smear. A comprehensive review of the literature is presented here with the goal of summarizing knowledge to date and increasing awareness. RECENT FINDINGS: A total of 41 cases have been reported in the literature, indicating the rarity of these green neutrophilic inclusions. Clinically, the inclusions have most consistently been associated with elevated transaminases, hepatic failure, and a high early mortality rate...

Ophiocordyceps sinensis (= Cordyceps sinensis) and Ganoderma lucidum are medicinal mushrooms used in traditional Chinese medicine. The effects of O. sinensis and G. lucidum on cognitive function have been evaluated through the use of animal models and in vitro studies, which indicated beneficial effects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of treatment with a commercially available supplement of O. sinensis and G. lucidum on cognitive function in young, healthy human participants. Physical education students (n = 96 [53 men, 43 women]; mean ± standard deviation age, 26...
