Its clinical features include widespread pain and tenderness — often associated with high levels of poor-quality sleep, fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. The mechanism leading to fibromyalgia development is associated with a change in the sensitivity of the pain-related nervous system, as well as other sensory systems. In turn, emotional distress plays a facilitatory role in this process. Non-pharmacological management focuses ...

While environmental, behavioural, communicative, therapeutic and supportive interventions are critical considerations for any individual with ASD, pharmacologic interventions are often helpful and can be necessary for improving level of functioning and quality ... Tue, 10 Oct 2017 15:43 GMT Antimicrobial therapies for Gram-positive infections- salvadore.info http://salvadore.info/research/antimicrobial-therapies-for-gram-positive-infections/20203363.article http://salvadore.info/research/antimicrobial-therapies-for-gram-positive-infections/20203363.article Gram-positive bacteria are among the most common human pathogens associated with clinical infections, which range from mild skin infections to sepsis. In an era defined by antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and an increasing drive toward delivering patient care via ambulatory pathways, the paradigm for the management of infections is changing. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), the best known cases of ... Tue, 12 Sep 2017 15:28 GMT An update on the management of chronic hepatitis B and C infection- salvadore.info http://salvadore.info/research/an-update-on-the-management-of-chronic-hepatitis-b-and-c-infection/20203306.article http://salvadore.info/research/an-update-on-the-management-of-chronic-hepatitis-b-and-c-infection/20203306.article Chronic hepatitis B and C infection are leading causes of liver-related morbidity and mortality worldwide. Current therapies for chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection consisting of nucleos(t)ide analogues (NA) rarely lead to functional cure. With a better understanding of the HBV lifecycle, novel agents have been developed with the hope of achieving functional cure. The development of direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for hepatitis C virus (HCV) therapy has led to ... Wed, 9 Aug 2017 14:46 GMT Safe dispensing in community pharmacies: applying the software, hardware, environment and liveware (SHELL) model- salvadore.info http://salvadore.info/research/safe-dispensing-in-community-pharmacies-applying-the-software-hardware-environment-and-liveware-shell-model/20202919.article http://salvadore.info/research/safe-dispensing-in-community-pharmacies-applying-the-software-hardware-environment-and-liveware-shell-model/20202919.article The human aspects of the community pharmacy work system are vulnerable to medication-related errors. Established models of human error can identify actual or potential hazards, and are important in our understanding of the interaction between human and system factors that influence performance. The software, hardware, environment and liveware (SHELL) model, a traditional human factors framework, is used in this article to classify potential sources of error in community ... Sat, 1 Jul 2017 00:00 GMT Examining the implications of analytical and remote monitoring in pharmacy practice- salvadore.info http://salvadore.info/research/examining-the-implications-of-analytical-and-remote-monitoring-in-pharmacy-practice/20202516.article http://salvadore.info/research/examining-the-implications-of-analytical-and-remote-monitoring-in-pharmacy-practice/20202516.article Remote patient monitoring (RPM) incorporates digital technology that collects health data from individuals in one location and electronically transmits secure data to healthcare providers in a different location for review and assessment. This allows healthcare professionals to make recommendations to optimise patient care without the patient having to be in the healthcare setting. With the implementation of RPM, pharmacists can use objective data obtained by remote ... Mon, 5 Jun 2017 17:14 GMT
