Vopr Kurortol Fizioter Lech Fiz Kult 2020 ;97(1):51-59

Clinical and Research Institute of Emergency Pediatric Surgery and Trauma of the Department of Healthcare of Moscow, Moscow, Russia.

Introduction: Children who have suffered brain damage form a large group of patients in need of rehabilitation. For rehabilitation, patients require not only surgical, neurosurgical, traumatological, pharmacological and other medical support, but also the creation of special conditions for psychiatric care, psychological and pedagogical correction of their psychophysical potential. Neurological, motor and mental consequences of severe injuries of the nervous system in children lead to a high degree of disability with a subsequent restriction of their life, where social maladaptation and a violation of the quality of life are the primary problems.

Peer approaches to self-management (PALS): comparing a peer mentoring approach for disease self-management in African American women with lupus with a social support control: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.

Trials 2019 Aug 23;20(1):529. Epub 2019 Aug 23.

Department of Social Work Programs, Hospital for Special Surgery, 535 East 70th Street, New York, NY, 10021, USA.

Background: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) is a chronic autoimmune disease that is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, healthcare costs and decreased quality of life. African Americans in the USA have three to four times greater prevalence of SLE, risk of developing SLE at an earlier age, and SLE-related disease activity, damage, and mortality compared with Caucasians, with the highest rates experienced by African American women. There is strong evidence that patient-level factors are associated with outcomes, which justifies targeting them with intervention. Read More

Outcomes of reablement and their measurement: Findings from an evaluation of English reablement services.

Health Soc Care Community 2019 11 1;27(6):1438-1450. Epub 2019 Aug 1.

Department of Health Sciences, University of York, York, UK.

Reablement - or restorative care - is a central feature of many western governments' approaches to supporting and enabling older people to stay in their own homes and minimise demand for social care. Existing evidence supports this approach although further research is required to strengthen the certainty of conclusions being drawn. In countries where reablement has been rolled out nationally, an additional research priority - to develop an evidence base on models of delivery - is emerging. Read More
