Resource Discovery: Provider Resilience App

first_imgApps are something that many of us take for granted at this point, despite the amount we rely on them. The Provider Resilience app is another to add to the pages of our smartphones, to utilize when needed. This app is aimed towards clinicians, who often put their own self-care on the back burner as they care for their clients and others in their lives. According to the director of the program that created the app, it’s designed to fit easily and seamlessly into the busy schedule of practitioners in order to keep their emotional well-being in check. This is done through mini self-assessments that track an individual’s risk of compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary stress and provides personal resiliency rating. This resiliency rating consists of components such as rest and relaxation clock, burnout, and Professional Quality of Life. By: Caitlyn BrownProvider Resilience App [National Center for Telehealth and Technology]At MFLN Family Development, we have spent a lot of time discussing and exploring resiliency in military families. However, we do not want to overlook the importance of resiliency in our providers. As providers, we are often taught about self-care and work/life balance. However,  implementing what we are taught is often easier said than done. There are many situations and cases that may linger with us as providers; following us home and impacting our own affect, behavior, and thoughts. Fortunately, the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology has helped to fill that gap through the creation of an app called Provider Resilience. The Provider Resilience app is free to both Android and Apple users and can be found in the respective stores associated with each brand. We at MFLN Family Development encourage you to check out this resource and share with us how it is helpful to you in the comments below. We would also love to hear about ways in which you commit to your own provider resilience!center_img This post was written by  Caitlyn Brown of the  MFLN Family Development Team.

6 Things You Should Know About Mondays NCAA Championship Game

VIDEO: Gonzaga has the numbers, but UNC has the pedigree Why North Carolina can win:Gonzaga has the nation’s eighth-tallest team this season, with its third-tallest frontcourt, thanks to the 7-footer pairing of Przemek Karnowski and Zach Collins. But the Bulldogs’ size might meet its match (or at least close to it) in the Tar Heels, who boast 6-foot-9 Isaiah Hicks and 6-foot-10 Kennedy Meeks down low, plus 6-foot-8 Justin Jackson on the wing and 6-foot-11 Tony Bradley coming off the bench. The Zags won’t easily be able to push around a UNC squad that leads the tournament in rebound margin (see the last 6 seconds of the Oregon game for more evidence there), nor will they likely be able to get the ball down low as frequently as they did against South Carolina, whom Gonzaga out-posted 20-8 in the national semifinals.No matter what criteria you use, North Carolina is the best team Gonzaga has faced all season long. According to Pomeroy’s rankings, before Monday’s tip-off, you’d have to go all the way back to Nov. 25, a game against No. 5-ranked Florida, to find Gonzaga facing a similar class of opponent — North Carolina is ranked No. 3. The Bulldogs also barely beat the only top-10 team they had to face during the tournament (West Virginia). Making the national title game is never easy, but the Zags haven’t exactly navigated the toughest path. So although the uncertainty about Gonzaga’s true quality has been reduced significantly over the past three weeks, it’s easy to see how UNC’s talent edge could lead to a comfortable Tar Heel victory.The stats say Gonzaga is the nation’s best team; the bookmakers disagree. As I mentioned above, Vegas quickly installed North Carolina as the favorites in the national title game, numbers be damned. Some of it might be due to residual skepticism over the Bulldogs’ rise. However, some of it might also be owed to North Carolina’s pedigree — the Tar Heels have the higher preseason ranking, the superior recruiting classes, the legendary coaching of Williams, and the benefit of experience as the team plays in its second straight title game and enjoys a huge lead in all-time Final Four appearances over Gonzaga. There’s evidence from other sports that factors like experience and pedigree matter in addition to a team’s statistical resume, so it may be that pure numbers are underestimating Carolina’s chances Monday night. After a couple of nail-biters in Phoenix on Saturday, we’re down to one game remaining in the 2016-17 NCAA men’s basketball season. So trust your gut and be sure to box out under the basket — here’s your cheat sheet of what to watch for in Monday night’s championship game.No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 1 North CarolinaWhere to watch: CBS, 9:20 PM EDTWho’s favored: According to the FiveThirtyEight model, Gonzaga has a 62 percent probability of winning the national championship. If that surprises you, you’re not alone — in a break with the stats, Vegas has the Tar Heels favored by 2 points. (More on that later.)Why Gonzaga can win:Simply put, the Zags are the statistical darlings of this championship game. They rank ahead of UNC not only in the FiveThirtyEight statistical power ratings, but also in those of college-hoops stats guru Ken Pomeroy, USA Today’s Jeff Sagarin, and plenty of other analysts. Going into the tournament, Gonzaga faced questions about whether its weak strength of schedule was properly accounted for in these systems’ various adjustments, but by now, even the most hardened Bulldogs skeptic has to admit that the Zags are for real. By the numbers, at least, Gonzaga deserves to have the edge.Gonzaga’s defense is the best in the country according to Pomeroy’s ratings. It specializes in forcing teams into poor shots in the half court by using a good transition D that takes away quick buckets — the Zags are allowing the 14th-fewest transition chances per play of any team in the tourney — and an impenetrable interior defense of preposterous size. That formula might be custom-made to defeat a North Carolina squad that is efficient in transition but hasn’t been very effective in the half court during the tournament thus far. I’d thought the Heels’ recent poor shooting might reverse itself against Oregon, but instead UNC had one of its worst nights of the season from the field. (Using a twice-injured Joel Berry II didn’t help — he went 2-for-14 from the floor, while teammate Isaiah Hicks went 1-for-12.) With one game left, against a team whose defensive strengths match up particularly well against North Carolina’s offensive tendencies, the Tar Heels might not be able to avoid another disappointing shooting night.Gonzaga’s coach is real good. So good that Mark Few deserves to be in the same conversation as great coaches such as, say, UNC’s Roy Williams. Few’s winning percentage speaks for itself; he also gets bonus points for showing a willingness to think outside the coaching box. At the end of the Zags’ win over South Carolina Saturday night, he elected to foul while up 3 — a logical risk that’s rarely taken in the ultra-conservative world of college coaching. Yes, the numbers are split on whether it’s always the right call in a generic sense, but by taking the chance at a game-tying shot away from SC’s best player and setting Gonzaga up to use its size advantage on the boards in the event of an intentionally missed free throw, Few eked out those last few points of win probability that the Bulldogs may have needed to advance. read more

TCI Police under investigation called routine

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:five cays, investigate, jeff walkin, Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Jun 2015 – The fact that the Police have been called in to investigate the Police has concerned some members of the public but the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force described that this is standard operating procedure. Magnetic Media learned that it was 18 year old Jeff Walkin of Five Cays who was killed by police gunfire on Saturday morning; Walkin was described as masked and armed and hostile toward a team of plain clothes officers on Granny Hill in Five Cays. Now, a team of their counterparts from the Cayman Islands is in country this week to ensure the shooting of this alleged suspect and civilian was warranted. “It is in the interests of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force and everyone involved in an incident where firearms have been discharged by police officers that subsequent procedures should be open, transparent and the integrity of all actions is maintained.” This is from the TCI Police Force late yesterday, where it is also explained that the investigation of this matter is beneficial to the public trust, with assurance that the probe will be both sensitive and thorough. One man is said to be at large; he too was described as masked and with Walkin on the early morning in question. When Magnetic Media visited the crime scene yesterday; police tape was still hanging from a tree where residents say the suspect had fallen after being struck by bullet… there was no obvious evidence of that being the case though. Walkin died less than an hour after being shot, around 2am according to Police – reportedly at hospital. Public assistance is again solicited in this ongoing investigation.
