OBJECTIVES: Following the Xiongnu and Xianbei, the Rouran Khaganate (Rouran) was the third great nomadic tribe on the Mongolian Steppe. However, few human remains from this tribe are available for archaeologists and geneticists to study, as traces of the tombs of these nomadic people have rarely been found. In 2014, the IA-M1 remains (TL1) at the Khermen Tal site from the Rouran period were found by a Sino-Mongolian joint archaeological team in Mongolia, providing precious material for research into the genetic imprint of the Rouran...

Law enforcement officers, whether working the streets or on narcotic detail, and even those who operate in strike teams, face a new danger from an old drug: carfentanil. Drug dealers seeking to increase profits cut this cheap synthetic drug into expensive heroin, providing an extreme high. As a potent synthetic opioid narcotic, it is finding its way to the streets of the United States and can pose a threat to life for law enforcement, first responders, and medical examiners.

BACKGROUND: It is difficult to assess applicants' higher-order cognitive thinking skills during conventional resident interviews. Application metrics currently employed are useful indicators of academic and personal success in targeted areas, yet value of this information in predicting future clinical performance is limited. OBJECTIVE: We developed an assessment tool to evaluate higher-order cognitive function in real time during anesthesiology resident applicant interviews...

UNLABELLED: WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Individuals with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) now constitute a substantial portion of the caseload for community teams. Specialized treatments for BPD often consume a large portion of available psychology resources and also involve lengthy waiting lists. The STEPPS programme is a treatment approach which is growing in evidence, particularly in the US. However, further evidence for the effectiveness of this programme within the UK healthcare system is needed...

Purpose - Patient involvement in the design and improvement of health services is increasingly recognized as an essential part of patient-centred care. Yet little research, and no measurement tool, has addressed the organizational impacts of such involvement. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach - The authors developed and piloted the scoresheet for tangible effects of patient participation (STEPP) to measure the instrumental use of patient input. Its items assess the magnitude of each recommendation or issue brought forward by patients, the extent of the organization's response, and the apparent degree of patient influence on this response...

OBJECTIVE: High voice users (individuals who demonstrate excessive or loud vocal use) are at risk for developing voice disorders. The objective of this study was to examine, both acoustically and perceptually, vocal changes in healthy speakers after an acute period of high voice use. METHODS: Members of a university women's volleyball team (n = 12) were recorded a week before (pre) and week after (post) the 10-week spring season; n = 6 control speakers were recorded over the same time period for comparison...

INTRODUCTION: Patient safety, risk management, and cultural competency are essential topics for health care provider mastery in a high stakes, urban, academic labor and delivery unit. METHODS: A prospective cross-sectional pilot study was performed with institutional review board-exempt status to examine the effect of an Internet-based educational curriculum on topics including patient safety, risk management, and cultural competency over 6 months amongst obstetrics and gynecology and family medicine medical students, nurses, and physicians...

OBJECTIVE: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive high-resolution imaging technique that permits characterization of microarchitectural features in real time. Previous ex vivo studies have shown that the technique is capable of distinguishing between parathyroid tissue, thyroid tissue, lymph nodes, and adipose tissue. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the practicality of OCT during open and minimally invasive parathyroid and thyroid surgery. METHODS: During parathyroid and thyroid surgery, OCT images were generated from parathyroid glands, thyroid tissue, lymph nodes, and adipose tissue...

In Argentina there have been far more events involving multiple victims. Forensic dentistry was able to contribute with a high incidence in the identification of victims of mass disasters such. The purpose of this paper is to present how they were carried out the work of identification from dental methodology and the problems that the team had to face. Each of these events has demanded different work methodologies given the conditions in which showed the bodies and threw different results depending mortem pre existing documentation...

The complex multidisciplinary nature of neonatal intensive care combined with the numerous hand-offs occurring in this shift-based environment, requires efficient and clear communication and collaboration among staff to provide optimal care. However, the skills required to function as a team are not typically assessed, discussed, or even taught on a regular basis among neonatal personnel. We developed a multidisciplinary, small group, interactive workshop based on Team STEPPS to provide staff with formal teamwork skills, and to introduce new team-based practices; 129 (95%) of the eligible 136 staff were trained...

BACKGROUND: An evidence-based teamwork system, Team-STEPPS, was implemented in an academic medical center's pediatric and surgical ICUs. METHODS: A multidisciplinary change team of unit- and department-based leaders was formed to champion the initiative; develop a customized action plan for implementation; train frontline staff; and identify process, team outcome, and clinical outcome objectives for the intervention. The evaluation consisted of interviews with key staff, teamwork observations, staff surveys, and clinical outcome data...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of the implementation of a TeamSTEPPS (Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety) program at an Australian mental health facility. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based teamwork training system developed in the United States. Five health care sites in South Australia implemented TeamSTEPPS using a train-the-trainer model over an 8-month intervention period commencing January 2008 and concluding September 2008...

Conventional graduate training related to tropical conservation and development has typically separated the two fields, with students focusing on either conservation from the perspective of the biophysical sciences or development as an extension of the social sciences. On entering the workforce, however graduates find they are required to work beyond disciplinary boundaries to address the complex interconnectivity between biological conservation and human well-being. We devised a framework for graduate education that broadens students' skill sets to learn outside their immediate disciplines and think in terms of linked socioecological systems, work in teams, communicate in nonacademic formats, and reflect critically on their own perspectives and actions...

BACKGROUND: Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving (STEPPS) is a new cognitive group treatment for outpatients with borderline personality disorder. METHODS: The English and Dutch language literature was reviewed on the STEPPS program. RESULTS: STEPPS was introduced in The Netherlands in 1998 under the acronym VERS. Reasons for its rapid dissemination throughout Holland include a user-friendly manual, its 20-week duration, ability to maintain the patient's current treatment team, and ease of therapist training...

Case management is a rapidly growing strategy to help vulnerable populations access the health care they need in a fragmented U.S. service delivery system. A number of lessons can be learned from the successes and challenges of a developing, hospital-based, community-focused case management group in Sedgwick County, Kansas. The Community Case Management program has a case management team based at each of four hospitals. Each team has a social worker and a nurse, whose main goal is to help the uninsured find a primary health care home...

The objective was to describe the experiences of one gynecologic oncologist in Mongolia. Gynecologic oncologists can contribute to the health of women in developing countries through education of the health care team and research into novel ways to deliver health care. Partnering with our colleagues in developing countries is a personally enriching experience. The development of gynecologic cancer care must ultimately be culturally relevant.
