Introduction to the themed issue: Nurse Practitioner EducationNo abstract availableDedicationNo abstract availableVaccine hesitancy: Not a new phenomenon, but a new threatVaccines have been recognized as one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century. In 1998, a study on the connection between measles, mumps, rubella vaccine and autism was published by the now discredited Andrew Wakefield. That study was retracted in 2010, but the damage was already done. The purpose of this article...

Immediate Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction in Suboptimal Patients Using an Air-filled SpacerIntroduction: Immediate prepectoral breast reconstruction offers excellent aesthetic results with less pain and elimination of animation deformity due to avoidance of pectoralis dissection and subpectoral implant placement. Concerns about the effects of prostheses on flap perfusion have limited use of the technique to highly selected patients. We present a series of "suboptimal" patients that have undergone...

Evaluation of the Use of Open Versus Closed Short Peripheral Catheters on Catheter Dwell TimeShort peripheral catheters (SPCs) vary by design and materials. The investigators conducted a before-and-after study comparing catheter dwell time and complications with open and closed system SPCs. Many SPCs in the study were saline locks. Results showed that the closed system SPCs had a significantly longer dwell time than open system SPCs. Complications overall were few and not different between groups....

It has been widely known for more than 100 years as a process by which the biogeochemical N-cycle is balanced. To study this process, we develop an individual-based model called INDISIM-Denitrification. The model embeds a thermodynamic model for bacterial yield prediction inside the individual-based model INDISIM...
