Both homozygous and heterozygous glucocerebrosidase 1 mutations confer an increased risk for developing Parkinson disease. Current estimates indicate that 10 to 25% of Parkinson patients carry… (More)

To manage pain effectively, clinicians need to have an understanding of the processes involved in the facilitation of pain transmission from the site of injury to the CNS and processes that augment or inhibit that transmission. Significant advances in our under-standing of the complex and integrated communication system involved in pain transmission have… (More)
Major technological advances in the last ten years have facilitated the efficient harvesting and manipulation of specialised haemopoietic progenitor cells that have the capacity to reconstitute the body's entire haemopoietic and immune system following myeloablative cancer therapy.
We present a framework for comprehensive model-based systematic design and staged verification of Human-in-the-Loop Cyber-Physical Systems (HiLCPS) to handle their inherent complexity. HiLCPS are systems where humans are in the middle of the feedback loop between their cyber and the physical components. HiLCPS designers require modern tools and simpler… (More)
Regardless of their area of clinical practice, nurses are faced on a daily basis with the challenge of effectively managing their patient's pain. Despite significant technological advances, inadequate treatment of pain is still widely reported in the literature.
Guidelines for the handling of cytotoxic drugs and related waste in health care establishments have recently been developed by the WorkCover Authority of NSW in collaboration with the New South Wales College of Nursing. Competencies for accreditation of staff involved in the reconstitution, storage, transport, administration and management of waste related… (More)
