The concern of the study is to know the long-term result of MBCT with the use of standardized measures of depressions (BDI-II), mindfulness (MAAS), and rumination (RSS) and the outcomes are collected yearly for 3 years. Thirty-nine participants were observed and the results showed a significant decrease in depression. Although the depression scores for the last year increased, it was still inside the normal range of BDI-II. Rumination and mind attention showed a strong negative correlation which means as rumination increases, the mind attention decreases and vice versa. It was therefore concluded that continued MBCT aids and training can help relapse prevention.
The patient’s demographic data, operating time, hemoglobin drop, complications (Clavien-Dindo), and length of hospital stay were prospectively studied. A complete stone-free status or CIRF at 1 month was accepted as the criterion for final clinical success. Results: A total of 17 patients with a median age of 9 years were studied. The stone size ranged from 5.3mm to 24.9mm. The median operative time was 40 minutes.

The paper below evaluates spinal manipulative therapy and the extent to which it is a useful treatment strategy for chronic lower back pain. It is proposed that spinal manipulative therapy offers therapeutically acceptable short-term relief for patients in the treatment of chronic lower back pain due to its non-invasive nature. Thorough reviews of several studies were the means by which this hypothesis was tested. EBSCO host and PubMed searches were used for this paper. The strategy entailed careful review of relevant peer reviewed scholarly articles produced over the past several years with emphasis on journals with a high impact factor.
Traditional rehabilitation interventions have been only partially successful in achieving motor recovery in this patient population. Therefore, a number of interventions have been recently proposed in an attempt to improve functional outcomes. Intensive upper limb exercise , functional electrical stimulation , robotic therapy [161, 162], virtual reality , and constraint induced movement therapy [164, 165] are some of the approaches recently investigated to improve motor recovery in patients post stroke. Unfortunately, clinical outcomes of upper limb rehabilitation are still unsatisfactory in a large percentage of patients chronically . The process of motor recovery after stroke starts in the inpatient and outpatient settings
If the patient is not a high risk patient, the fall assessment is done weekly or upon change in patient condition. Not forgetting pediatric patients, it is a must to nurse patient who are below then three years old in a baby cot.

Bone marrow transplantation has also been used in this matter because it has evolved over the past decade and It is considered as the only treatment that doctors are impressed with, because it gives patients long survival and is highly recommended to patients who could not be cured by the drugs in a minimum of 10 to 20 days after treatment. Doctors are impressed by the recent progress in the treatment of this disease, as it started or was discovered about three decades ago. Maintenance chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and CNS prophylaxis have little role in AML. It is not yet clear whether the therapy might be effective in the next coming years because even though it is highly recommended, the side of the therapy might cause actual and long-time damage to the patient but if procedure goes accordingly, there should be answers to this question of whether chemotherapy can be accepted as a cure of AML. Future progress in the treatment of AML awaits new and more improved methods for detecting leukaemia and treating it with immediate effect but for now the more effective use of current therapy treatment and the introduction of new effective drugs can be acknowledge and found as a cure to AML until further analysis are made and a more effective treatment is found.
Psychotherapy is as effective as medication in treating depression and is more effective than medication in preventing relapse (DeRubeis, Siegle, & Hollon, 2008).

There is a well-established literature regarding effective cognitive behavioral therapy in treating mental health problems, specifically those utilizing face-to-face counseling.
