    Description: Falls can have a devastating effect on older people. Physical injury and fear of further falls may restrict social and physical activities, leading to a lack of confidence and social isolation. Nurses need to assess patients who have fallen to identify injury as well as to instigate appropriate interventions to reduce the risk of further falls. This article provides an overview of the assessment tools and management strategies that can be used in daily practice, particularly in the community setting.

    Description: With the emergence of intensive care in the 1950s and 1960s, delirium became more prominent. Doctors quickly set out to understand and prevent it, but delirium results from so many sources that decisive understanding remains elusive. Doctors have recognized delirium for centuries. Transient alterations in consciousness, attention, orientation, perception, or behavior were well known with malaria and alcohol withdrawal or after surgery. Delirium became more prominent in the 1950s and 1960s with the emergence of intensive care. Intensive care units (ICUs) made it possible for patients to survive more severe illnesses and for doctors to attempt more aggressive interventions that required physiological monitoring, respiratory support, and intensive nursing. Delirium, “the `new madness of medical progress,'”1 became more prevalent and more visible. Doctors set out to understand and prevent it, but, as the Critical Care Medicine article . . .

    Description: Over the years, the Journal has considered the Olympic competitions from the perspectives of eugenics, mental versus physical development, the health risks associated with athletics or mass gatherings, and the ethics of using performance-enhancing drugs, among others. In July 1912, the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal celebrated “American Supremacy,” noting that the “overwhelming success of the American athletes at the current Olympic games in Stockholm is as interesting physiologically as it is nationally gratifying (1912; see Historical Journal Articles Cited) (see poster). Although Sweden won the most medals, athletes from the United States won the gold medal count by the thinnest margin, 25 to 24. What accounted for their dominance? The large population of the United States “is more mixed of all races, and we should therefore be able to select the best strains and breed the . . .

    Description: The fate of the Affordable Care Act depends on the outcome of four events in 2012: state legislative sessions, the Supreme Court ruling on the law's constitutionality, the application deadline for grants for establishing health insurance exchanges, and the elections. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) is arguably the most significant health legislation enacted in generations. As remarkable a political and policy achievement as it was, what the reform will actually accomplish is largely yet to be determined. Whether it slows the growth of costs, increases access to care, or improves the quality of care will depend on how it is implemented. Although major components of the law do not go into effect until 2014, the fate of the ACA depends on the outcome of four key events in 2012. First is the 2012 state legislative . . .

    Description: The article discusses how bipartisanship has played an important role in framing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) in view of the DemocratsE and RepublicansE clash over the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The replacement of MedicareEs sustainable growth rate formula (SGR) with a new emerit-based incentive payment systemE was also welcomed by medical professionals. Also, MACRAEs extended health policy known as ChildrenEs Health Insurance Program (CHIP) was also considered a vital part of the US health care safety policy.

    Description: The decline of coronary heart disease mortality in the United States and Western Europe is one of the great accomplishments of modern public health and medicine. Cardiologists and cardiovascular epidemiologists have devoted significant effort to disease surveillance and epidemiological modeling to understand its causes. One unanticipated outcome of these efforts has been the detection of early warnings that the decline had slowed, plateaued, or even reversed. These subtle signs have been interpreted as evidence of an impending public health catastrophe. This article traces the history of research on coronary heart disease decline and resurgence and situates it in broader narratives of public health catastrophism. Juxtaposing the coronary heart disease literature alongside the narratives of emerging and reemerging infectious disease helps to identify patterns in how public health researchers create data and craft them into powerful narratives of progress or pessimism. These narratives, in turn, shape public health policy.
