Career Development

You're Fired! Now What?

If you were let go from your position due to a reason other than restructuring or downsizing, it can be difficult to find the words to explain what happened during the hiring process. Many employers have been faced with making some hard staffing decisions in this economy, but if the situation was more complicated, Career Coach blogger and NP Renee Dahring can offer some suggestions.
 Where to go from here?

Accurate Detection of Fever in Children

Fever is a common parental concern that results in numerous medical visits to both outpatient clinics and emergency departments. Studies have demonstrated that although fever knowledge deficits and fears about its management and consequences, referred to as "fever phobia," are prevalent across all socioeconomic classes, caregivers' educational attainment is inversely related to increased utilization of the emergency departments for fever.
 Fevers often do not need to be managed in the ED.

Reducing Dementia Risk

Dementia is an umbrella term that encompasses neurodegenerative disorders that affect cognitive, behavioral and functional abilities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the number of Americans 65 and older will have doubled between 2007 and 2032. Because age is the most significant risk factor for dementia, the incidence of dementia will greatly increase as the population ages.
 Activity and weight management may prove to be useful.

Kawasaki Disease

Kawasaki disease is often misdiagnosed and therefore mismanaged in children. KD usually presents in children younger than 5 years and it is the most common cause of acquired heart disease. KD is usually transient, but it can result in coronary artery abnormalities in approximately 25% of patients. Coronary artery abnormalities such as dilation and aneurysm are the most deleterious adverse effects of this disease.
