The Lancet - doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(14)60805-9
Regular paracetamol is the recommended first-line analgesic for acute low-back pain; however, no high-quality evidence supports this recommendation.
We aimed to assess the efficacy of paracetamol taken regularly or as-needed to improve time to recovery from pain, compared with placebo, in patients with low-back pain.

Nursing Care using a Standardized Interface Terminology
Time and motion (T&M) studies provide an objective method to measure the expenditure of time by clinicians. While some instruments for T&M studies have been designed to evaluate health information technology.
Time in Care for Older People Living in Nursing Homes
Examination of the time spent on various care levels has been calculated using the Kruskal-Wallis test.

Nursing instructions are important for improving patient knowledge related to their diseases and treatments, but the short hospital stay often prevents complete education and guidance regarding the given therapy.
This study's aim was to test the effects of self-transcendence on depression among cognitively intact nursing home patients.
Depression was assessed by the depression subscale of the hospital anxiety and depression scale (HADS).....
