${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Acute hospital-based services used by adults during the last year of life in New South Wales, Australia: A population-based retrospective cohort study 3 care episodes (median 2); 35% stayed a total of >30 days in hospital (median 17); 42% were admitted to 2 or more different hospitals. Twelve percent of decedents spent time in an ICU with median 3 days. In the metropolitan area, 80% of decedents presented to an ED and 18% had >3 presentations. Overall 55% died in a hospital or inpatient hospice. Although we could not quantify the extent and type of palliative care, 24% had mention of "palliative care" in their records. The very elderly and those dying from diseases of the circulatory system or living in the least disadvantaged areas generally had lower hospital service use. Conclusions: These population-wide health data collections give a highly informative description of NSW hospital-based end-of-life service utilisation. Use of hospital-based services during the last year of life was common, with substantial variation across sociodemographic groups, especially defined by age, cause of death and socioeconomic classification of the decedents' place of residence. Further research is now needed to identify the contributors to these findings. Gaps in data collection were identified - particularly for palliative care and patient-reported outcomes. Addressing these gaps should facilitate improved monitoring and assessment of service use and care.]]> Thu 08 Dec 2016 17:08:34 EST ]]> Clinician assessment, advice and referral for multiple health risk behaviors: prevalence and predictors of delivery by primary health care nurses and allied health professionals Thu 08 Dec 2016 17:01:42 EST ]]> Acute behavioural disturbance associated with phenibut purchased via an internet supplier Thu 08 Dec 2016 17:01:39 EST ]]> Active control of an active magnetic bearings supported spindle for chatter suppression in milling process Thu 08 Dec 2016 17:01:35 EST ]]> Active tracking using color silhouettes for indoor surveillance Thu 08 Dec 2016 17:01:31 EST ]]> Healthy food and beverages in senior community football club canteens in New South Wales, Australia Thu 08 Dec 2016 16:54:34 EST ]]> ACPSEM ROSG TBE working group recommendations for quality assurance in total body electron irradiation Thu 08 Dec 2016 16:54:33 EST ]]> Alcohol sponsorship of community football clubs: the current situation Thu 08 Dec 2016 16:54:31 EST ]]> Acknowledging how older Australian women experience life after stroke: how does the WHO 18-Item Brief ICF Core Set for Stroke compare?

The materials used were poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), glass, and anatase. The interaction of the bubbles, once brought into contact, was monitored using high-speed video recording. Visual inspection indicated that denser particles were more easily displaced during the contact of the bubbles and therefore the PMMA particles provided a particle barrier more resistant to coalescence. The coalescence events yielded information on the surface properties of the bubble and the detachment of particles. The attached particles commonly dampen the oscillation of the coalesced bubbles through viscous drag and change in the surface properties (e.g., area-exclusion principle). The dampening of the oscillation generally leads to a reduced mass of particles detaching from the bubble surface. It was found that the different materials investigated did not offer clear evidence of the effect of particle detachment on the bubble surface properties in the present systems. On the other hand, the detachment of different particle materials seemed to be consistent with one another when comparing the attachment and detachment forces exerted on the particles based on their density, size, and hydrophobicity. It was concluded that particles of lower density are more effective in stabilizing interfaces, and thus particle density is an important parameter in the selection of materials for the handling of dispersions.]]> Thu 08 Dec 2016 11:25:33 EST ]]> Panel testing for familial breast cancer: calibrating the tension between research and clinical care Thu 08 Dec 2016 11:25:31 EST ]]> The seduction of autonomy: countertransference and physician aid in dying Thu 08 Dec 2016 11:04:33 EST ]]> Design and analysis of large MIMO systems with Krylov subspace receivers Thu 08 Dec 2016 11:04:33 EST ]]> Abnormalities in cortical gray matter density in borderline personality disorder Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:57:34 EST ]]> Determinants of outcomes following resection for pancreatic cancer - a population-based study Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:57:33 EST ]]> Aboriginal student stories, the missing voice to guide us towards change Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:57:31 EST ]]> Learning anxiety in interactions with the outgroup: towards a learning model of anxiety and stress in intergroup contact Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:01:33 EST ]]> Presentations by ambulance under the NSW Mental Health Act to an emergency department with a 24-hour mental health team Thu 08 Dec 2016 09:54:32 EST ]]> Estimating the risk of chronic pain: development and validation of a prognostic model (PICKUP) for patients with acute low back pain Thu 08 Dec 2016 09:47:32 EST ]]> Emergency department transfers and hospital admissions from residential aged care facilities: a controlled pre-post design study Thu 08 Dec 2016 09:33:32 EST ]]> Cross-sectional data that explore the relationship between outpatients' quality of life and preferences for quality improvement in oncology settings Thu 08 Dec 2016 09:19:32 EST ]]> Retention mechanisms of citric acid in ternary kaolinite-Fe(III)-citrate acid systems using Fe K-edge EXAFS and L₃,₂-edge XANES spectroscopy Thu 08 Dec 2016 09:12:32 EST ]]> Abandoned metalliferous mines: ecological impacts and potential approaches for reclamation Thu 08 Dec 2016 08:51:31 EST ]]> Paul and union with Christ: an exegetical and theological study (book review) Fri 09 Dec 2016 17:31:29 EST ]]> Parkinson’s disease data classification using evolvable wavelet neural networks Fri 09 Dec 2016 17:31:28 EST ]]> Age-related gene expression changes in substantia nigra dopamine neurons of the rat Fri 09 Dec 2016 17:31:28 EST ]]> But these are written: essays on Johnannine literature in honor of Professor Benny C.

Comparing cotyledons cultured for 0, 3, 9, and 24 h to induce trans-differentiation of epidermal TCs identified 43 transcription factors that showed either epidermal-specific or epidermal-enhanced expression, and 10 that showed epidermal-specific down regulation. Members of the WRKY and ethylene-responsive families were prominent in the cohort of transcription factors showing epidermal-specific or epidermal-enhanced expression, consistent with the initiation of TC development often representing a response to stress. Members of the MYB family were also prominent in these categories, including orthologs of MYB genes involved in localized secondary wall deposition in Arabidopsis thaliana. Among the group of transcription factors showing down regulation were various homeobox genes and members of the MADs-box and zinc-finger families of poorly defined functions. Collectively, this study identified several transcription factors showing expression characteristics and orthologous functions that indicate likely participation in transcriptional regulation of epidermal TC development in V. faba cotyledons.]]> Fri 09 Dec 2016 15:39:31 EST ]]> Knockdown of GRP78 enhances cell death by cisplatin and radiotherapy in nasopharyngeal cells in vivo and assessed for possible clinical applications.]]> Fri 09 Dec 2016 15:39:30 EST ]]> Mechanisms of brief contact interventions in clinical populations: a systematic review Fri 09 Dec 2016 15:25:32 EST ]]> Hydrogen production from ventilation air methane in a dual-loop chemical looping process Fri 09 Dec 2016 15:11:31 EST ]]> Insensitivity of astrocytes to interleukin 10 signaling following peripheral immune challenge results in prolonged microglial activation in the aged brain KO astrocytes did not augment transforming growth factor β after immune challenge and failed to resolve microglial activation.

Results: Though family members are important partners in the care of older people, there has been little exploration of their experiences during delirium. Current literature identifies that family members experience unexpected, rapid and unpredictable changes in their older loved one, absence of the person they know, distress, not knowing about delirium nor how to help, and supportive and unsupportive relationships with health care staff. Conclusions: Health care staff need understanding about what it means for family to have someone close to them have delirium. Without understanding, it is difficult for staff to respond with compassion, provide support and appropriately include family in the older person's care. There is a need to mitigate family distress and provide support, including information which addresses family concerns.]]> Fri 09 Dec 2016 11:55:33 EST ]]> Advances in high-pressure processing of fish muscles Fri 09 Dec 2016 11:55:33 EST ]]> Aboriginal cultural tourism: enterprise, contested mobilities and negotiating a responsible Australian travel culture Fri 09 Dec 2016 11:55:31 EST ]]> Advances in oral nano-delivery systems for colon targeted drug delivery in inflammatory bowel disease: selective targeting to diseased versus healthy tissue.

Construction of a 33-km long sea-wall was completed in April 2006. We show that shorebird numbers at Saemangeum and two adjacent wetlands decreased by 130000 during northward migration in the next two years and that all species have declined at Saemangeum since completion of the sea-wall. Great Knots were among the most rapidly affected species. Fewer than 5000 shorebirds were recorded at Saemangeum during northward migration in 2014. We found no evidence to suggest that most shorebirds of any species displaced from Saemangeum successfully relocated to other sites in the ROK. Instead, by 2011-13 nearly all species had declined substantially in the ROK since previous national surveys in 1998 and 2008, especially at more heavily reclaimed sites. It is likely that these declines were driven by increased mortality rather than movement to alternate staging sites given that other studies have shown concurrent declines in numbers and survival on the non-breeding grounds. This is the first study in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway to confirm declines of shorebirds at a range of geographical scales following a single reclamation project. The results indicate that if migratory shorebirds are displaced from major staging sites by reclamation they are probably unable to relocate successfully to alternate sites.]]> Fri 09 Dec 2016 10:59:32 EST ]]> A power flow based model for the analysis of vulnerability in power networks Fri 09 Dec 2016 09:56:32 EST ]]>
