Utilization of maternal health care services is key to reducing the number of perinatal deaths and post-natal complications in sub-Saharan Africa. With a few exceptions, many studies that examine the use of maternal health services in sub-Saharan Africa have focused largely on individual-level explanations and have ignored the importance of contextual and community-level explanations. In Ghana, progress has been made in reducing maternal mortality ratio from 740/100,000 in the late 1990s to 319/100,000 in 2...
Chiral pharmaceuticals (CPs), including non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), β-blockers and some herbicide and pesticides, are widely used in aquaculture, clinical treatment and many other fields. However, people are increasingly concerned about such ubiquitous pollutants, which can frequently be detected in contaminated soil and water. In large part, the significant sources of chiral pharmaceuticals stem from industrial processes, such as the direct discharge of untreated or incompletely treated ...
World Health Organization recommends the use of maternal near miss as a tool to monitor and improve quality of obstetric care. Severe maternal outcome corresponds to the sum of maternal near miss and maternal death cases. This study was aimed at validating Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II and IV, Simplified Acute Physiology Score III, and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment in pregnant and postpartum women in predicting severe maternal outcome.
Maternal delivery is the costliest event during pregnancy, especially if a complicated delivery occurs that requires emergency hospital services. A health financing scheme or program that covers comprehensive maternal services, including specialized hospital services in the benefits health package, enhances maternal survival and improves financial risk protection.
A doctor of nursing practice (DNP) portfolio rubric for faculty to use when evaluating student portfolios and for students to use to critique their work is described. No rubrics or tools were found in the literature that provided guidelines to evaluate the extent to which portfolio exemplars meet American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice. The rubric provides criteria to evaluate whether portfolio documents demonstrate achievement of the DNP Es...
The association between maternal pre-pregnancy obesity and adverse child health outcomes is well described, but there are few data on the relationship with offspring health service use.
