  • Screening for Atrial Fibrillation With Electrocardiography: An Evidence Review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force [BOOK]

  • CONCLUSIONS: There is uncertainty about the benefits and harms of screening for AF with ECG. Although screening with ECG can detect previously unknown cases of AF, it has not been shown to detect more cases than opportunistic screening that is focused on pulse palpation. Most older adults with previously unknown AF have a stroke risk above the threshold for anticoagulation. Multiple treatments for AF reduce the risk of stroke and all-cause mortality, and increase the risk of bleeding, but trials have not assessed whether treatment of screen-detected asymptomatic older adults results in better health outcomes than treatment after detection by usual care or after symptoms develop.

  • CONCLUSIONS: The use of nutritional interventions in psychiatry equips therapists with a promising tool for both the prevention and treatment of psychiatric disorders. Besides pharmacological therapy, psychotherapy and physical activity, nutritional interventions are an important pillar in the multifactorial, biopsychosocial treatment of psychiatric disease and could be used as a potential therapeutic target.
  • Coordinating the prevention, treatment, and care continuum for HIV-associated tuberculosis in prisons: a health systems strengthening approach. [Journal Article]
  • COCurr Opin HIV AIDS 2018 Sep 14
  • Herce ME, Muyoyeta M, … Reid SE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Realizing ambitious international HIV and TB targets in prisons will only be possible by first addressing the root causes of the TB/HIV syndemic, which are deeply intertwined with human rights violations and weaknesses in prison health systems, and, second, fundamentally re-organizing HIV and TB services around a coordinated PTCC. Taking these steps can help ensure universal access to comprehensive, good-quality, free and voluntary TB/HIV prevention, treatment, and care, and advance efforts to strengthen health resourcing, staffing, information management, and primary care access within prisons.
