There has been extensive debate about both the necessity of orthogonal confirmation of next-generation sequencing (NGS) results in Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments-approved laboratories and return of research NGS results to participants enrolled in research studies. In eMERGE-PGx, subjects underwent research NGS using PGRNseq and orthogonal targeted genotyping in clinical laboratories, which prompted a comparison of genotyping results between platforms. Concordance (percentage agreement) was reported for 4077 samples tested across nine combinations of research and clinical laboratories...

BACKGROUND: Teaching residents how to teach is a critical part of residents' training in graduate medical education (GME). The purpose of this study was to assess the change in resident-as-teacher (RaT) instruction in GME over the past 15 years in the US. METHODS: We used a quantitative and qualitative survey of all program directors (PDs) across specialties. We compared our findings with a previous work from 2000-2001 that studied the same matter. Finally, we qualitatively analyzed PDs' responses regarding the reasons for implementing and not implementing RaT instruction...

The federal Indian Health Service (IHS) is the primary funding source for health services designated for American Indians (AIs; Gone & Trimble, 2012). Urban Indian health organizations (UIHOs), funded in part by IHS, are typically the only sites in large metropolitan settings offering treatments tailored to AI health needs. This is a first look at how mental health treatment is structured at UIHOs. UIHO staff at 17 of 34 UIHOs responded to our request to participate (50%), 14 employed behavioral health program directors who could complete the survey on behalf of their programs, and 11 of these submitted complete data regarding their current treatment practices and personal attitudes toward empirically supported treatments...

BACKGROUND: Hand hygiene is the single-most important nursing home (NH) infection control measure. We piloted a multifaceted hand-washing/surface cleaning intervention in 5 NHs. Our aims were to assess the feasibility of implementing this intervention by assessing staff participation, satisfaction, hand-washing compliance, and whether the intervention was associated with reductions in infection rates, new antimicrobial orders, or overall hospitalization rates. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, pair-matched pilot intervention in 10 Colorado NHs to reduce infections for all NH residents from October 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016...

Predental students are often unsuccessful in gaining admission to dental school because of low academic scores. Many of these students are from economically and/or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Postbaccalaureate and Master's programs provide these students with the opportunity to raise their grade point averages and/or scores on the Dental Admission Test and then apply or reapply for dental school admission. The aim of this study was to compare seven of these postbac programs and their success rates in gaining dental school admission for their graduates...
