Addressing Gaps in Care, UArizona Health Sciences Offers Dual Pharmacy-Nursing Degree with Family Nurse Practitioner Add-on

Students at the University of Arizona Colleges of Nursing and Pharmacy soon will be offered the opportunity to simultaneously earn a Master of Science in Nursing, a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and a Family Nurse Practitioner certificate through a first-of-its-kind program created with the future of health care in mind.

The program responds to a national need for qualified health-care providers. The Association of American Medical Colleges projects a shortage of between 42,600 and 121,300 physicians by 2030, while demand for primary-care services is projected to increase at a more rapid pace than physician supply. An aging population, mixed with an exodus of primary care providers entering retirement, has stretched health-care resources thin, particularly for individuals living in rural or medically underserved areas that lack regular provider access.

“This unique program allows student

'Very active' flu season continues as a second wave could be coming

The 2019-20 flu season continues to be more active than normal, with Influenza B the leading type of virus among patients nationwide. But patient visits were down compared to the previous week in much of the country, indicating the early Influenza B wave may reach a peak and start declining in the coming weeks, according to researchers at the Biocomplexity Institute at the University of Virginia who work in a research partnership with AccuWeather.

However, those researchers expect that eventually an Influenza A wave will arrive and cause considerable infections later in the season.

The percentage of visits for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) dropped over the last week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Nationwide, 3.2 percent of patient visits reported through the U.S. Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet) were due to influenz

Simple tool shows life expectancy after dementia diagnosis

Simple tool shows life expectancy after dementia diagnosis

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet and from the Netherlands have developed a simple tool that shows the survival probability of a person with dementia disease over three years. This, they hope, will facilitate dialogue with the most seriously affected and help doctors and others plan the necessary care. The study is published today in the scientific journal Neurology.

Dementia diseases are currently incurable. There are, however, many kinds of dementia, which develop differently from person to person. Some people can live for many years with their disease, while others have a disease that progresses more aggressively. This means that doctors need a simple tool to indicate the severity of the disease at the point of diagnosis. This can help in planning care and help these patients understand how their disease is likely to de

Obesity may alter nearly 70 percent of routine blood tests in children

Weight may affect doctors’ ability to correctly interpret routine blood tests in children, according to new research published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The number of U.S. youth who are overweight or obese has risen dramatically over the past three decades. The State of Obesity reports about 18.5 percent of children are obese. With the rising rates of obesity in children and teens becoming a major public health concern, it is important for patients and doctors to understand the potential influence of weight on routine blood tests.

“We performed the first comprehensive analysis of the effect of obesity on routine blood tests in a large community population of children and found that almost 70 percent of the blood tests studied were affected,” said the study’s first author, Victoria Higgins, Ph.D. of The Hospital for Sick Children and The
