Building a safety culture in global health: lessons from Guatemala.
(BMJ global health, 2018-01)
Programmes to modify the safety culture have led to lasting improvements in patient safety and quality of care in high-income settings around the world, although their use in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) ...
Validation of a host response test to distinguish bacterial and viral respiratory infection.
BACKGROUND:Distinguishing bacterial and viral respiratory infections is challenging. Novel diagnostics based on differential host gene expression patterns are promising but have not been translated to a clinical platform ...
Development of an international external quality assurance program for HIV-1 incidence using the Limiting Antigen Avidity assay.
(PloS one, 2019-01)
Laboratory assays for identifying recent HIV-1 infections are widely used for estimating incidence in cross-sectional population-level surveys in global HIV-1surveillance. Adequate assay and laboratory performance are required ...
Direct-from-blood RNA sequencing identifies the cause of post-bronchoscopy fever.
(BMC infectious diseases, 2019-10-28)
BACKGROUND:Antibiotic resistance is rising at disturbing rates and contributes to the deaths of millions of people yearly. Antibiotic resistant infections disproportionately affect those with immunocompromising conditions, ...
Regression of Epileptogenesis by Inhibiting Tropomyosin Kinase B Signaling following a Seizure.
(Annals of neurology, 2019-12)
OBJECTIVE:Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is a devastating disease in which seizures persist in 35% of patients despite optimal use of antiseizure drugs. Clinical and preclinical evidence implicates seizures themselves as one ...
Obstacles to social mobility in India—and the way forward
(Current History, 2019-04-01)
Increasing Physician Assistant Students' Team Communication Skills and Confidence Throughout Clinical Training.
(The journal of physician assistant education : the official journal of the Physician Assistant Education Association, 2019-10-25)
PURPOSE:An intervention was designed to increase physician assistant students' team communication skills using the Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation (SBAR) tool. METHODS:A variety of learning activities were ...
Universal Nonequilibrium I-V Curve at an Interacting Impurity Quantum Critical Point
The nonlinear I-V curve at an interacting quantum critical point (QCP) is typically out of reach theoretically. Here, however, we provide an analytical calculation of the I-V curve at a QCP under nonequilibrium conditions ...
Tunable quantum phase transitions in a resonant level coupled to two dissipative baths
(Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, 2014-02-18)
We study tunneling through a resonant level connected to two dissipative bosonic baths: one is the resistive environment of the source and drain leads, while the second comes from coupling to potential fluctuations on a ...
Importance of diameter control on selective synthesis of semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes.
(ACS nano, 2014-08-11)
The coexistence of semiconducting and metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) during synthesis is one of the major bottlenecks that prevent their broad application for the next-generation nanoelectronics. Herein, ...
