  • Organised inpatient (stroke unit) care for stroke: network meta-analysis. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020 04 23; 4:CD000197.Langhorne P, Ramachandra S, Stroke Unit Trialists' Collaboration
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found moderate-quality evidence that stroke patients who receive organised inpatient (stroke unit) care are more likely to be alive, independent, and living at home one year after the stroke. The apparent benefits were independent of patient age, sex, initial stroke severity, or stroke type, and were most obvious in units based in a discrete stroke ward. We observed no systematic increase in the length of inpatient stay, but these findings had considerable uncertainty.
  • Functional changes in Hofbauer cell glycobiology during human pregnancy. [Journal Article]
    Placenta. 2015 Oct; 36(10):1130-7.Jones CJ, Choudhury RH, Aplin JD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hofbauer cells have properties commensurate with their phagocytic activity with numerous lysosomal vacuoles and heavily glycosylated plasma membranes and granules, most evident in the first half of pregnancy. Their carbohydrate metabolism appears to rely on glucose mobilisation rather than storage as glycogen, reflecting their peripatetic mode of existence.
  • The importance of, and the benefits derived from, forward dental peripatetic clinics in Afghanistan. [Journal Article]
    Br Dent J. 2015 Mar 13; 218(5):303-6.Davies TJ, McCormick RJ
  • The majority of dental care for military personnel is carried out in clinics that would be familiar to all dental professionals. In times of conflict, however, dental care is often required to travel to those in need. Dental morbidity has a detrimental effect on a fighting force, both at the personal level and for maintaining combat efficiency. In Afghanistan, two main dental centres provided the…
  • A hop count based heuristic routing protocol for mobile delay tolerant networks. [Journal Article]
    ScientificWorldJournal. 2014; 2014:603547.You L, Li J, … Hu L
  • Routing in delay tolerant networks (DTNs) is a challenge since it must handle network partitioning, long delays, and dynamic topology. Meanwhile, routing protocols of the traditional mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) cannot work well due to the failure of its assumption that most network connections are available. In this paper, we propose a hop count based heuristic routing protocol by utilizing t…
  • Creating safe places: an exploratory evaluation of a school-based emotional support service. [Journal Article]
    Pastor Care Educ. 2013 Sep; 31(3):211-228.Segrott J, Rothwell H, Thomas M
  • School-based interventions for young people with emotional/mental health problems are often provided by external practitioners and their relationship with host schools is a key influence on implementation. Poor integration within school systems, schools' tendency to define interventions around pupils' behaviour and teachers' control over access, may undermine therapeutic relationships. This study…
  • Benefits of a peripatetic port mentor. [Journal Article]
    Nurs Times. 2012 Aug 21-Sep 3; 108(34-35):23-5.Butler K
  • Mentors play a crucial role in helping student nurses to develop their knowledge and skills, yet the quality of mentoring can be inconsistent. Peripatetic mentor support could promote consistency in placement learning by helping to bridge some gaps between clinical staff and universities. This article describes the introduction of a new role--peripatetic support mentor--and its benefits.
  • A centralised respiratory diagnostic service for primary care: a 4-year audit. [Journal Article]
    Prim Care Respir J. 2012 Jun; 21(2):180-6.Starren ES, Roberts NJ, … Partridge MR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Misdiagnosis has significant financial, ethical, and safety implications. This risk may be minimised by better support for primary care physicians such as diagnostic centres (CRAU) or alternative peripatetic practice-based services operating to quality-controlled standards.
  • Australasian ophthalmology: trans-Tasman ties. [Historical Article]
    Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 2012 Jan-Feb; 40(1):108-14.Hadden OB, Kaufman DV
  • Links between Australian and New Zealand ophthalmology began with peripatetic surgeons who worked in both countries. Links continued with the Intercolonial Medical Congresses which began in 1887. Ophthalmologists from both countries were involved in the founding of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons in 1927. There were combined meetings of the Ophthalmological Societies of Australia and New…
  • Urban parasitology: visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil. [Review]
    Trends Parasitol. 2011 Sep; 27(9):403-9.Harhay MO, Olliaro PL, … Costa CH
  • Since the early 1980s, visceral leishmaniasis (VL) which is, in general, a rural zoonotic disease, has spread to the urban centers of the north, and now the south and west of Brazil. The principal drivers differ between cities, though human migration, large urban canid populations (animal reservoir), and a decidedly peripatetic and adaptable sand fly vector are the primary forces. The exact numbe…
  • Travelling educational workshops for clinical teachers: are they worthwhile? [Journal Article]
    Clin Teach. 2011 Mar; 8(1):52-6.Gallagher P, Pullon S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Whereas the subject matter of the workshops was of interest to those who attended, of equal importance was the opportunity the workshops created to interact with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition, the workshops were the catalyst for some clinicians to formally pursue their particular educational interests.
  • Peripatetic intravenous service for metabolic bone disease: case study in patient centred-care for new NHS. [Clinical Trial]
    Curr Med Res Opin. 2010 Aug; 26(8):2033-9.Davie M, Jeffreson P, … Mitchell P
  • CONCLUSIONS: PIVS is cost neutral compared with a conventional service, leads to a better patient experience, a significant cutback in hospital transport costs and a reduction of the NHS carbon footprint. However not all drugs may be suitable for this service: the area served was rural with large distances and poor public transport and mileage savings may not accrue in urban areas. Insurance was not included in the calculation of costs.
  • [Heat and Fever in ancient Greek physiology]. [Historical Article]
    Uisahak. 2009 Dec; 18(2):189-203.Yeo IS
  • This paper aims at clarifying the relationship of physiological heat and pathological heat(fever) using the theoretical scheme of Georges Canguilhem as is argued in his famous book The Normal and the Pathologic. Ancient authors had presented various views on the innate heat and pathological heat. Some argued that there is only pathological heat while others, like Galen, distinguished two differen…
  • Peripatetic health-care workers as potential superspreaders. [Journal Article]
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2009 Oct 27; 106(43):18420-5.Temime L, Opatowski L, … Guillemot D
  • Many nosocomial outbreaks exhibit "superspreading events" in which cross-transmission occurs via a single individual to a large number of patients. We investigated how heterogeneity in Health-Care Worker (HCW) behaviors, especially compliance to hand hygiene, may cause superspreading events. In particular, we compared the superspreading potential of peripatetic (noncohorted) HCWs with that of oth…
