Developing Authentic Mentorship Through Professional Organizations.

Am J Pharm Educ 2022 Aug 10:9006. Epub 2022 Aug 10.

University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, Jackson, Mississippi

Harsh realities in pandemic fatigue, burnout, inequities, and isolation are impacting academic pharmacy. Mentoring programs, especially inter-institutional programs like those provided within the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), may help combat some of these issues. Unfortunately, year after year, academy members continue to request information on mentoring, whether it be the opportunity to pair up, advice on how to be better at it, or guidance on how to develop a program on mentoring.

Medicaid Expansion and Change in Federally Qualified Health Center Accessibility from 2008 to 2016.

Med Care 2022 Aug 10. Epub 2022 Aug 10.

Department of Biostatistics, Boston University School of Public Health, Boston, MA.

Background: The Affordable Care Act expanded health coverage for low-income residents through Medicaid expansion and increased funding for Health Center Program New Access Points from 2009 to 2015, improving federally qualified health center (FQHC) accessibility.

Multi-Institutional Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Incident Learning: Evaluation of Safety Barriers Using a Human Factors Analysis and Classification System.

J Patient Saf 2022 Aug 10. Epub 2022 Aug 10.

From the Department of Radiation Oncology, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Objectives: Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) can improve therapeutic ratios and patient convenience, but delivering higher doses per fraction increases the potential for patient harm. Incident learning systems (ILSs) are being increasingly adopted in radiation oncology to analyze reported events. This study used an ILS coupled with a Human Factor Analysis and Classification System (HFACS) and barriers management to investigate the origin and detection of SBRT events and to elucidate how safeguards can fail allowing errors to propagate through the treatment process.

ABA Supports AMA Regarding Monkeypox Name Change: A Satire.

Philip R Cohen

Clin Dermatol 2022 Aug 7. Epub 2022 Aug 7.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, CA; Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine, Vallejo, CA. Electronic address:

The names of organizations, teams, and medical conditions can elicit controversy when presumedly non-intentional defamation of a subset of individuals is perceived. Indeed, this has recently resulted in changing the names of sports teams and diseases. Previously the ABA (American Baboon Association) solicited the other ABA (American Bar Association) and the drug reaction initially described to as baboon syndrome is now appropriately referred to as symmetrical drug-related intertriginous and flexural exanthema (SDRIFE).

Dive Performance and Aquatic Thermoregulation of the World's Smallest Mammalian Diver, the American Water Shrew ().

Physiol Biochem Zool 2022 Sep-Oct;95(5):438-463

AbstractAllometry predicts that the 12-17-g American water shrew ()-the world's smallest mammalian diver-will have the highest diving metabolic rate coupled with the lowest total body oxygen storage capacity, skeletal muscle buffering capacity, and glycolytic potential of any endothermic diver. Consistent with expectations, and potentially owing to their low thermal inertia, water shrews had a significantly higher diving metabolic rate in 10°C water (8.77 mL O g h) compared with 30°C water (6.

Sci Adv 2022 Aug 10;8(32):eabn2927. Epub 2022 Aug 10.

Mikajy Natiora Association, Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Primates, represented by 521 species, are distributed across 91 countries primarily in the Neotropic, Afrotropic, and Indo-Malayan realms. Primates inhabit a wide range of habitats and play critical roles in sustaining healthy ecosystems that benefit human and nonhuman communities. Approximately 68% of primate species are threatened with extinction because of global pressures to convert their habitats for agricultural production and the extraction of natural resources.

Transfer from spatial education to verbal reasoning and prediction of transfer from learning-related neural change.

Sci Adv 2022 Aug 10;8(32):eabo3555. Epub 2022 Aug 10.

Department of Psychology, Georgetown University, DC, USA.

Current debate surrounds the promise of neuroscience for education, including whether learning-related neural changes can predict learning transfer better than traditional performance-based learning assessments. Longstanding debate in philosophy and psychology concerns the proposition that spatial processes underlie seemingly nonspatial/verbal reasoning (mental model theory). If so, education that fosters spatial cognition might improve verbal reasoning. Read More

Telehealth to improve continuity for patients receiving buprenorphine treatment for opioid use disorder.

Ann Fam Med 2022 Apr 1;20(20 Suppl 1). Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Context: Buprenorphine is medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder. It is a controlled substance and most states limit the dispensing to a 30-day supply. Patients with opioid use disorder often have social determinants of health barriers that make it difficult to engage with the health system to obtain a new supply of buprenorphine every month.
