Evaluations are essential to judge the success of public health programmes. In Europe, the proportion of public health programmes that undergo evaluation remains unclear. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control sought to determine the frequency of evaluations amongst European national public health programmes by using national hand hygiene campaigns as an example of intervention.
Leukemoid reaction is defined as leucocytosis >50,000/?L. When it occurs in association with a malignancy, and infection or leukemia has been ruled out, it is termed as paraneoplastic leukemoid reaction. A patient presented with fatigue, generalized weakness, and abdominal distension and was incidentally noted to have a white blood cell count of 139,000/?L. Leukemia was ruled out by peripheral smear and flow cytometry. Computed tomography-guided biopsy of thickened omentum revealed poorly differentiated metastatic carcinoma. He died 3 days after admission with a peak white blood cell count of 180,000/?L. Previous reports and pathophysiology of paraneoplastic leukemoid reaction are reviewed.
In the past few weeks, I have had the privilege of attending a series of seminars exploring the themes emerging from the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry to date. They are highly relevant to nurses and to the future of nursing. They have explored system and professional regulation, organizational culture, board leadership, information systems, nurse training, patient experience and commissioning.

What is Visualize?
JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.
How does it work?
We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.
Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...
In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
