OBJECTIVE Previous research suggests that anorexic behaviour may be an attempt to introduce control into a chaotic environment, and that the need for stability and meaning in life is an important factor in the development of psychopathologies. The phenomenon of 'existential anxiety' is a characteristic reaction to a lack of meaning in the life of an(More)
BACKGROUND Unlicensed medications are used all the time in the management of diseases in childhood. Tolvaptan (Jinarc®) is a vasopressin V2-receptor antagonist licensed for use to slow the progression of cyst development and renal insufficiency of ADPKD in adults with CKD stage 1 to 3 with evidence of rapidly progressing disease. Studies of animal models(More)
Technology mapping is an important step in the FPGA CAD flow in which a network of simple gates is converted into a network of logic blocks. We consider enhancements to a traditional LUT-based mapping algorithm for an FPGA comprised of logic blocks which implement only a subset of functions of up to k variables--specifically, the logic block is a partial(More)
Due to poor correlations between pre- and post-placement timing analysis, many post-placement optimization strategies have been proposed for the FPGA CAD flow to improve circuit performance. Typically, these methods depend on logic duplication or decomposition methods combine together with incremental placement. Circuit rewriting has proven to be a useful(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to develop a list of hospital based paediatric prescribing indicators that can be used to assess the impact of electronic prescribing or clinical decision support tools on paediatric prescribing errors. METHODS Two rounds of an electronic consensus method (eDelphi) were carried out with 21 expert panellists from the UK.(More)
Recent research has suggested that normal adolescent processes are important in understanding psychosis, and that young adult individuals with psychosis are often struggling to develop an individual and autonomous self (the "fundamental task" of adolescence). The current paper explores the utility of considering normative adolescent developmental processes(More)
The current study aimed to explore the personal meaning of eating difficulties. Eight women with a variety of eating issues were interviewed. These conversations were then analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to construct a framework for understanding the personal world of the interviewees. Three overarching themes identified in(More)
Background The implementation of electronic prescribing and medication administration (EPMA) systems is a priority for hospitals and a potential component of antimicrobial stewardship (AMS). Objectives To identify software features within EPMA systems that could potentially facilitate AMS and to survey practising UK infection specialist healthcare(More)
