Dialogue on Race and Policing Series Launches in Baton Rouge

The July 2016 death of Alton Sterling at the hands of two Baton Rouge police officers and the subsequent decision by the Louisiana Attorney General and Department of Justice to not prosecute these officers added new chapters to the long, troubled history between local law enforcement and the city’s minority communities. For many Baton Rouge residents, these are not seen as isolated instances of injustice. Rather, they are part of the systemic pattern of law enforcement misconduct in interactions with marginalized communities that had gone unacknowledged for far too long. Others in the community, though, believe the officers acted reasonably under the circumstances. They view the ensuing civil protests, like other criticism of the police, as largely unjustified.

Executive Summary

People who work on remote teams face communications challenges consistently. As more and more of our interactions happen digitally, we will continue to experience new forms of miscommunication and misunderstanding. The solution lies in building a skill set that reflects the demands of our digitally-driven age. For instance, when communicating digitally, don’t assume that others understand your cues and shorthand. Spend the time to communicate with the intention of being ultra clear. Don’t bombard your team with messages – it’s ineffective, and annoying. Consider creating team acronyms for digital communications like “Four Hour Response (4HR)” and “No Need to Respond (NNTR)” that bring predictability and certainty to virtual conversations. And remember to create space for celebrations and socializing with remote teams, which can strengthen relationships and lay the foundation for future collaboration.

Remote communication isn’t always easy. Do you recognize yourself in any of these examples?

At 10 p.m., a corporate lawyer gets a text from a colleague and wonders (not for the first time) if there’s a protocol about work-related texts after a certain hour.

After a long and liquid client dinner, an advertising executive opens an email from his boss reminding him to submit his expenses on time. Annoyed by this micromanagement, he immediately responds with his uncensored thoughts.

On the weekly team conference call, a remote team member is confused about whether her colleague is really on mute when she delays a response to a question or if she s just not paying attention and is using this as an excuse.

Microalbuminuria is an early sign of progressive cardiovascular and renal disease in individuals with and without diabetes. Despite compelling data, at present only a minority of patients with diabetes and rarely individuals without diabetes are screened for albuminuria in a systematic way. All of the criteria to implement systematic albuminuria screening are fulfilled in diabetes, and most are nearly fulfilled for microalbuminuria screening in individuals without diabetes. Because of the growing evidence that treatment of microalbuminuria in individuals without diabetes may offer a cost-effective benefit to prevent cardiovascular disease, nephrologists and other health care providers should pay more attention to the early detection and subsequent treatment of individuals with microalbuminuria.

Microalbuminuria is an early sign of progressive cardiovascular and renal disease. We discuss whether screening for albuminuria is warranted and, if so, how screening and subsequent monitoring could be carried out.

The criteria that a screening program should fulfill have been described by Wilson and Jungner ( 1 ) and are given in Table 1 . As more data are available on the impact of elevated albuminuria on renal and cardiovascular prognosis in individuals with diabetes than in individuals without diabetes, we discuss separately the evidence that is available for the need for albuminuria testing in these two groups.

Albuminuria screening first may be used as a tool to detect individuals with undiagnosed chronic kidney disease (CKD). Elevated albuminuria (30 to 300 mg/d albumin is the definition of microalbuminuria) is an early predictor of progressive renal function loss in type 1 ( 2 , 3 ) and type 2 diabetes ( 4 , 5 ). At the time that microalbuminuria becomes manifest, GFR typically is normal or elevated or only modestly impaired (stage 1 or 2 CKD). Increased urinary albumin excretion (UAE) also may indicate a worse renal prognosis in individuals without diabetes. In a Japanese study, >100,000 individuals were tested for dipstick proteinuria. After a period of >17 yr, the likelihood of being on dialysis increased according to the degree of dipstick proteinuria at baseline ( 6 ). A similar finding was reported from the Prevention of Renal and Vascular End Stage Disease (PREVEND) study: After a 4.2-yr follow-up, the number of individuals who de novo had developed stage 3 or worse CKD was related to baseline albuminuria ( 7 ) ( Figure 1 ). By screening for elevated albuminuria, one of course will not only detect individuals with microalbuminuria but also individuals with macroalbuminuria (>300 mg/d), who most likely are already in stage 3 or 4 CKD.
