OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of a physician and pharmacist teamwork approach to uncontrolled hypertension in a medical resident teaching clinic, for patients who failed to meet the recommended goals of the fifth Joint National Commission on Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. HYPOTHESIS Physician and pharmacist teamwork can(More)
The earth-and ocean-science communities are developing the concept of a "system of systems" (www.epa.gov/geoss) for observing the earth and oceans. Related initiatives in the ocean sciences range from the application-oriented Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) to the research-oriented Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). In an ideal world, all ocean(More)
Communities that want to share information often do not know enough about the available standards or how to choose the best one. One is example is marine communities that want to share observation data. Even selecting a standards body, such as the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), is not enough. For example, OGC has more than one standard that could(More)
