Continuity maintenance in older adulthood is a psychosocial adaptation strategy by searching for preference and familiarity, making a sense of connection, and creating coherence. Continuity maintenance is a useful concept for effective dementia care, which could bring psychosocial benefits. This review investigates effective ways of co...
Health literacy is a significant determinant of health behaviors, but the pathways through which health literacy influences health behaviors are not completely clear nor consistent. The purpose of this systematic review is to critically appraise studies that have empirically tested the potential pathways linking health literacy to health behavior.
Clinical practice guidelines advocate the importance of continuing professional development (CPD) that supports health professionals (HPs) to discuss the sensitive topic of maternal weight management with women. However, there is a lack of accredited CPD related to this important area of preconception and antenatal care. Therefore, aims were to evaluate HPs' reactions to accredited online CPD regarding weight management for pregnancy and their knowledge, attitudes, confidence, and commitment to provide wome...
The network scale up (NSU) method is an indirect size estimation method that has received remarkable attention in estimating the sensitive behaviors. Using methadone maintenance therapy (MMT), which is a treatment for opioid use disorder, is a sensitive topic in many societies. The aim of this manuscript was to estimate the number of MMT users and its failure ratio using the NSU method in the city of Kerman, Iran, in 2016.
Much has been written about the need for participants on global health service-learning experiences to contemplate ethical features of their involvement. This literature tends to neglect the role of self-interest in global engagement, however. This article explores how awareness of one's own interests is critical to successfully engaging in global health experiences and proposes how US-based health professions students and trainees can practice critical self-exploration. Six themes beginning with the letter...

Hokianga Health in New Zealand's far north is an established integrated health service that includes a rural hospital and serves a largely Māori community. The aim of this study wa...
The impact of a training programme incorporating the conceptual framework of the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) on behaviour regarding interprofessional practice in Rwandan health professionals: A cluster randomized control trial.
Appropriate collaboration between health professionals (HP) can reduce medical errors, enhance the spread of critical information, and assist in interpretation of health information resulting in improved patient care. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) may provide a useful conceptual framework to facilitate better interprofessional practice.
The Swedish Association of General Practice has published a set of guidelines for general practitioner's (GPs') learning in general practice/family medicine. This article is a summary of principles, guidelines and applications regarding Swedish GPs' continuing professional development (CPD). We argue that reflection on own practice, reflection with colleagues in small groups and use of written learning plans and portfolios for courses and lectures are important parts of CPD and should be increasingly used a...
Environmental health ethics is a relatively young field of study, drawing on experience from medical ethics, public health ethics, and the ethics of radiological protection. Fundamental to all of these in one way or another are the four "principles of biomedical ethics", originally proposed by Beauchamp and Childress (1979) as a guide for decision making in clinical practice. Suggestions have been made of various other principles which should be added to address the specifics of the individual disciplines u...
Optimal oral health education is limited in nursing curricula and may therefore, not translate as a priority for nurses in clinical practice.
Research in health communication frequently views it as an information dissemination strategy, thus neglecting the intricacies involved in communicating a sensitive topic such as menstruation. The social patterning in menstrual communication, a taboo in India, and its consequent health-effects on adolescents are under-studied.
The PLOS Medicine Editors discuss migrant and refugee health, and announce a forthcoming special issue devoted to the topic.
Clients on methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) have high attrition rates that are attributed to personal and system-related factors. To develop supportive interventions for these clients, it is imperative to understand social demographic characteristics and challenges that clients in the MMT program face.
Each year, approximately 2 million US children 18 years or younger sustain a concussion, a type of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Concussions can have detrimental effects on physical, cognitive, emotional, or sleep health.
Familial hypercholesterolemia is characterized by severely elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels and premature cardiovascular disease. The short-term efficacy of statin therapy in children is well established, but longer follow-up studies evaluating changes in the risk of cardiovascular disease are scarce.
Imatinib is an effective tyrosine kinase inhibitor which has different therapeutic actions. The recent work demonstrated the possible beneficial effects of imatinib on the progression of atherosclerosis, endothelial dysfunction, and hypercholesterolemia-associated liver damage in rabbits.
Autosomal dominant familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is caused by mutations in LDLR,APOB and PCSK9. Two new putative loci causing FH have been identified recently, the p.(Leu167del) mutation in APOE and new mutations in the signal transducing adaptor family member STAP1. We aimed at investigating the role of STAP1 mutations in the etiology of FH.
Interprofessional education is essential to ensure that health care graduates are prepared for collaborative practice. One way to prepare students for interprofessional practice is to expose them to interprofessional activities throughout their educational program.

Background Healthcare professionals (HCPs), largely doctors, paediatricians, health visitors, midwives and practice nurses are in a good position to provide information, help, advice or guidance to parents for child sleep. However, evidence suggests there is a gap between the number of parents who desire assistance from HCPs and those that make use of these sources, yet very little is known about the reason for this apparent disparity. The aim of this study was to understand the barriers reported by parents...
