The Promise of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research for the Treatment of Autism

Finding a cure for previously untreatable injuries and diseases is the main aim for the regenerative medicine. This promising medical field tries to restore or establish normal structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. To achieve this goal, a great opportunity is offered by stem cell therapy. Indeed, stem cells could represent the future of molecular and regenerative medicine. Using several types of stem cells is a real way to provide a valid approach to curing some untreatable human diseases. In addition, stem cell therapy is suitable for developing new cell-based drugs for the future molecular and regenerative medicine.

Tissue Engineering Approaches for Motor Neuron Pathway Regeneration

During fetal development, a tightly-regulated spatio-temporal pattern of guidance cues directs and maintains motor neuron axonal growth along specific pathways to reach the target cells and tissues. However, an inflammatory environment resulting from an injury (e.g., trauma, stroke) or disease [e.g., amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), and hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP)] leads to progressive degeneration of motor neurons and destruction of axonal tracts in the adult CNS. Failure to reinstate healthy axonal connections under these conditions can severely compromise locomotor function, resulting in muscle atrophy, paralysis and death.

A Collaborative Approach to Improve Support Provided to Bereaved Siblings

Within the bereavement community, there is general agreement that the loss of a loved one poses significant and complex challenges for children. To help address the needs of grieving children and teens, a range of services have been made available, including specialized counseling, support groups, grief camps, and remembrance events. Websites dedicated to supporting grieving children and families have been developed, and books and informational material have been produced to offer guidance and support.

Emergency Nursing

As per available reports about 154 journals, 95 Conferences, 95 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Emergency nursing and about 2030000 articles are being published on the current trends in Emergency nursing. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to Emergency nursing as reported in ENA today article the nursing specialty that encompasses caring for patients of all age groups and conditions, from delivering babies and resuscitating trauma arrests to administering medication. The pace of emergency nursing also varies from slow to hyper drive, and it can change within minutes. Emergency Nurses treat patients in emergency situations where they’re experiencing trauma or injury. These nurses quickly recognize life-threatening problems and are trained to help solve them on the spot. They can work in hospital emergency rooms, ambulances, helicopters, urgent care centers, sports arenas, and more. As an Emergency Nurse, you’ll treat a variety of conditions from sore throats to heart attacks for patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Health Literate Healthcare Organizations and their Role in Future Healthcare

There is a growing need for a system change towards more patient-centred and health literate healthcare systems. One valuable approach for change on the system-level is the redesign of health organizations to health literate healthcare organizations (HLHO). This process requires sufficient efforts in teamwork, committed leadership and outcome monitoring. Nurses could make major contributions to the overall system change by integrating their expertise in the redesign of health care organizations in health literate ones.
