BackgroundSome reports suggest a history of keratinocyte carcinoma (KC) may be associated with increased mortality. The high prevalence of KC makes the possibility of associated subsequent mortality from other causes important from a clinical and public health perspective. However, the variable methods and findings of existing studies leave the overall significance of these results uncertain. To provide clarity, we conducted a systematic review to characterize the evidence on the associations of KC with: 1) all-cause mortality, 2) cancer-specific mortality, and 3) cancer survival...

AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To review what is characteristic of registered nurses' intuition in clinical settings, in relationships, and in the nursing process. BACKGROUND: Intuition is a controversial concept and nurses believe that there are difficulties in how they should explain their nursing actions or decisions based on intuition. Much of the evidence from the body of research indicates that nurses value their intuition in a variety of clinical settings. More information on how nurses integrate intuition as a core element in daily clinical work would contribute to an improved understanding on how they go about this...

BACKGROUND: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is a subjective, multidimensional and changing over time construct. When HRQoL is decreased, a child is less likely to be able to develop normally and mature into a healthy adult. Physical inactivity is a priority public health problem. Evidence suggests how even moderate levels of physical activity or high fitness levels are associated with benefits for the health in children and adolescents. The aims of this systematic review are to examine the evidence about the relationship between physical activity, sedentary behavior, and fitness with HRQoL, and estimate the effects of interventions that have tested the effectiveness of the increase of the physical activity, the improvement of the physical fitness or the avoidance of sedentary behaviors in HRQoL in healthy subjects aged under 18 years old...
