More residents in residential care communities with more than 25 beds were aged 85 and over compared with smaller communities. A higher percentage of residents in communities with 4-25 beds were receiving Medicaid compared with residents in larger communities. The prevalence of Alzheimer disease and depression was higher among residents of communities with 4-25 beds than in larger communities, but the prevalence of cardiovascular disease was lower. The percentage of residents needing assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, walking, or eating was highest in communities with 4-25 beds...

In an evidence-based health care environment, healthcare professions require a sustainable research culture to remain relevant. At present however, there is not a mature research culture across the chiropractic profession largely due to deficiencies in research capacity and leadership, which may be caused by a lack of chiropractic teaching programs in major universities. As a response to this challenge the Chiropractic Academy for Research Leadership, CARL, was created with the aim of develop a global network of successful early-career chiropractic researchers under the mentorship of three successful senior academics from Australia, Canada, and Denmark...

OBJECTIVE: To better understand how older adults currently manage emergency information, the barriers and facilitators to planning and management of emergency information, as well as the potential role of information technology to facilitate emergency planning and management. INTRODUCTION: Older adults face a much higher risk of sudden illness/injury and are the age group with the largest percentages of emergent and urgent healthcare visits. Emergency information (health information needed in an emergency situation such as emergency contact information, diagnoses, and advance directives) needs to be maintained and easily accessible to ensure older adults get appropriate care and treatment consistent with their wishes in emergency situations...
