AbstractPrescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) are a crucial component of federal and state governments' response to the opioid epidemic. Evidence about the effectiveness of PDMPs in reducing prescription opioid-related adverse outcomes is mixed. We conducted a systematic review to examine whether PDMP implementation within the United States is associated with changes in 4 prescription opioid-related outcome domains: opioid prescribing behaviors, opioid diversion and supply, opioid-related morbidity and substance-use disorders, and opioid-related deaths. We searched for eligible publications in Embase, Google Scholar, MEDLINE, and Web of Science. A total of 29 studies, published between 2009 and 2019, met the inclusion criteria. Of the 16 studies examining PDMPs and prescribing behaviors, 11 found that implementing PDMPs reduced prescribing behaviors. All 3 studies on opioid diversion and supply reported reductions in the examined outcomes. In the opioid-related morbidity and substance-use disorders domain, 7 of 8 studies found associations with prescription opioid-related outcomes. Four of 8 studies in the opioid-related deaths domain reported reduced mortality rates. Despite the mixed findings, emerging evidence supports that the implementation of state PDMPs reduces opioid prescriptions, opioid diversion and supply, and opioid-related morbidity and substance-use disorder outcomes. When PDMP characteristics were examined, mandatory access provisions were associated with reductions in prescribing behaviors, diversion outcomes, hospital admissions, substance-use disorders, and mortality rates. Inconsistencies in the evidence base across outcome domains are due to analytical approaches across studies and, to some extent, heterogeneities in PDMP policies implemented across states and over time.

Shake This Square World and Blast Off for Kicksville: Teaching History with Post-WWII Prescriptive Classroom FilmsNeuhaus, Jessamyn (The History Teacher, 2010-11)The article discusses using social adjustment films from the late 1940s to the 1960s to teach students about U.S. history. It examines several films' themes including sexuality, manners, and drug use. Other films concerned safety, driving, and dating. The author reflects on her students' reactions to the films and analyzes humor as an educational tool. Several prescriptive classroom films are discussed, including "Marijuana" starring singer Sonny Bono, "A Date With Your Family" and "What to Do on a Date." The article also comments on viewing these mental hygiene films as reactions to social change.
Effects of a Diagnostic-Prescriptive System on the Reading Comprehension Scores of Fourth and Fifth Grade StudentsSmith, Arthur; Grazioplena, Mary Ann; The College at Brockport (1978-08-01)The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to investigate the effects of a diagnostic-prescriptive teaching system on the total reading comprehension scores of fourth and fifth grade students of varying achievements in reading. The study also examined which achievement level of students benefited the most from exposure to a diagnostic-prescriptive teaching system for reading. Three hypotheses dealing with method of instruction, achievement, and their interactions were tested. A sample, population of 108 (54 males, 54 females) fourth and fifth grade students was used. The control group utilized various basal programs. The experimental group employed various basal programs that were augmented by a diagnostic-prescriptive system for reading (Houghton-Mifflin, IPMS). Instrumentation included the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test (Levels I and II, Form W) as well as pretests, interim mastery tests, and posttests from the IPMS system. Significant differences and interactions were assessed by analysis of variance. There was no significant difference in the comprehension mean gain scores of both groups with respect to method of instruction. At both grade levels for both groups, there was a highly significant effect on comprehension mean gain scores with respect to achievement. Interaction effects were significant effect on comprehension mean gain scores with respect to achievement. Interaction effects were significant at the fourth grade level but not at the fifth grade level.
Health-Related Physical Fitness Benefits of Exercise Prescriptions for Individuals with Down SyndromeWooten, Kimberly; The College at Brockport (2016-12-08)This literature review synthesizes the published articles that relate to adolescents and adults with Down syndrome and the benefits of exercise prescription on specific health-related fitness components. Individuals with Down syndrome typically have lower levels of health-related physical fitness in regard to most fitness components. Participating in regular exercise can improve each of these components. Depending on the desired outcome of the exercise regiment administered, variations in type, frequency, duration and intensity of exercise can be adjusted. The results found in the literature are similar to the guidelines provided by the American College of Sports Medicine with a few slight differences. In regard to cardiovascular fitness for individuals with Down syndrome, it appears that lower intensities and frequencies can still be effective. In order to improve muscular strength and endurance a program should have a frequency of two to three days per week and consist of eight to 20 reps and two to four sets. Body composition can be improved in individuals with Down syndrome, however it may take more than 16 weeks to see the resulting changes.
