Jan 9th, 2022 - Blood glucose levels during pregnancy may reflect the severity of insulin secretory defects and/or insulin resistance during gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) pregnancy. We hypothesized that suboptimal glycemic control in women with GDM could increase the risk of postpartum type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or prediabetes. Our objective was to evaluate the impact of plasma glucose levels throug...

Jan 2nd, 2022 - Infectious outbreaks are known to cause fear and panic. Exploration of pregnant individuals' psychosocial condition using a qualitative lens during an infectious outbreak is limited. In this study we explore pregnant individuals' lived experiences as well as their psychological and behavioural responses during COVID-19 with the goal of providing useful strategies from the patient's perspective ...

Jan 2nd, 2022 - Disrespect and Abuse (D&A) during childbirth represents an important barrier to skilled birth utilization, indicating a problem with quality of care and a violation of women's human rights. This study compared prevalence of D&A during childbirth in a public and a private hospital in Southeast Nigeria. This study was a cross-sectional study among women who gave birth in two specialized health fa...

Jan 2nd, 2022 - High-quality randomised clinical trials testing moderately fractionated breast radiotherapy have clearly shown that local control and survival is at least as effective as with 2 Gy daily fractions with similar or reduced normal tissue toxicity. Fewer treatment visits are welcomed by patients and their families, and reduced fractions produce substantial savings for health-care systems. Implement...

Jan 1st, 2022 - We investigated treatment outcomes and complications during reirradiation of patients with oral cancers. Six patients who received definitive radiotherapy for oral cancer as the initial treatment and brachytherapy for recurrence were included. Local control and overall survival rates, soft tissue and mandibular complications, and tooth extraction were investigated. The five-year local control a...

Jan 1st, 2022 - This study investigated the feasibility and efficacy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided dose-escalated hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiation therapy with simultaneous integrated boost (IMRT-SIB) for glioblastoma. Eighteen patients underwent postoperative IMRT-SIB for glioblastoma using three MRI sequences: double inversion recovery (DIR), diffusion tensor imagin...

Jan 1st, 2022 - Panel management processes have been used to help improve population-level care and outreach to patients outside the health care system. Opportunities to resolve gaps in preventive care are often missed when patients present outside of primary care settings but still within the larger health care system. We hypothesized that we could design a process of "inreach" capable of resolving care gaps ...

Jan 1st, 2022 - Provision of reproductive health preventive services to adolescents is critical given their high rates of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies. Pediatricians are well positioned to provide these services but often face barriers. With this project, we aimed to build quality improvement (QI) capacity within pediatric practices to improve adherence to national guidelines for ...

Jan 1st, 2022 - Transportation influences attendance at posthospitalization appointments (PHAs). In 2017, our pediatric hospital medicine group found that our patients missed 38% of their scheduled PHAs, with several being due to transportation insecurity. To address this, we implemented a quality improvement project to perform inpatient assessment of transportation insecurity and provide mitigation with the g...

Jan 1st, 2022 - Potential relationship among loan applicants can provide valuable information for evaluating default risk. However, most of the existing credit scoring models either ignore this relationship or consider a simple connection information. This study assesses the applicants' relation in terms of their distance estimated based on their characteristics. This information is then utilized in a proposed...

Dec 31st, 2021 - Despite the important increase in in-facility births, perinatal mortality rates have remained high and slow to decrease in many developing countries. This situation is attributed to poor childbirth care quality. The reason why women delivering in health facilities do not always receive care of an adequate standard is unclear. We assessed the determinants of childbirth care quality along the car...

Dec 30th, 2021 - During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, convenient accessibility and rapid publication of studies related to the ongoing pandemic prompted shorter preparation time for studies. Whether the methodological quality and reporting characteristics of published systematic reviews (SRs)/meta-analyses are affected during the specific pandemic condition is yet to be clarified. This study...

Dec 30th, 2021 - Novel therapies, including cell and gene therapies, can radically improve outcomes among patients with rare disorders, especially if provided early. Newborn screening (NBS) could support early access to novel therapies, but the speed of new therapy development is a disruptive event for which the public health NBS system and state newborn screening programs are unprepared. To identify and evalua...
