Interventions for preventing falls in older people living in the community.
TLDR
Exercise interventions reduce risk and rate of falls, and home safety interventions did not reduce falls, but were effective in people with severe visual impairment, and in others at higher risk of falling. Expand
Effects of exercise on breast cancer patients and survivors: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Exercise is an effective intervention to improve quality of life, cardiorespiratory fitness, physical functioning and fatigue in breast cancer patients and survivors and larger trials that examine the long-term benefits of exercise are needed for this patient group. Expand
Interventions for preventing falls in elderly people.

Diagnosis and management of work-related asthma: American College Of Chest Physicians Consensus Statement.
TLDR
The substantial prevalence of WRA supports consideration of the diagnosis in all who present with new-onset or worsening asthma, followed by appropriate investigations and intervention including consideration of other exposed workers. Expand
The Canadian C-spine rule versus the NEXUS low-risk criteria in patients with trauma.
TLDR
For alert patients with trauma who are in stable condition, the CCR is superior to the NLC with respect to sensitivity and specificity for cervical-spine injury, and its use would result in reduced rates of radiography. Expand
Interventions for preventing falls in elderly people.
TLDR
The effects of interventions designed to reduce the incidence of falls in elderly people (living in the community, or in institutional or hospital care) are assessed to assess their effectiveness. Expand
Comparison of the Canadian CT Head Rule and the New Orleans Criteria in patients with minor head injury.
TLDR
For patients with minor head injury and GCS score of 15, the Canadian CT Head Rule and the NOC have equivalent high sensitivities for need for neurosurgical intervention and clinically important brain injury, but the CCHR has higher specificity for important clinical outcomes than does the N OC, and its use may result in reduced imaging rates. Expand
Cardiac resynchronization therapy for patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction: a systematic review.
TLDR
CRT reduces morbidity and mortality in patients with LV systolic dysfunction, prolonged QRS duration, and New York Heart Association class 3 or 4 symptoms when combined with optimal pharmacotherapy. Expand
The Epidemiology of Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury in Alberta, Canada
TLDR
Prevention strategies for SCI should target males of all ages, adolescents and young adults of both sexes, rural residents, motor vehicle collisions, and fall prevention for those older than 60 years. Expand
