Midwifery education in the U.S. - Certified Nurse-Midwife, Certified Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife.

US midwifery education is provided through graduate education for the CNM/CM and didactic education with apprenticeship for the CPM. Clinical practice varies throughout the country depending on the credential held and current state legislation. A lack of clinical sites for midwifery education is a significant challenge to all programs and a barrier to meeting the national maternity care provider shortage.

Prescribing for Children with Rheumatic Disease: Perceived Treatment Approaches between Pediatric and Adult Rheumatologists.

According to the Arthritis Foundation there are more than 300,000 children in the US with juvenile arthritis and there are many more children with musculoskeletal conditions that could benefit from rheumatologic care. Yet there are only about 350 board certified pediatric rheumatologists in this country and 8 states do not have a single board certified practitioner. As a consequence over 75% of children with rheumatic disease are cared for by an adult certified rheumatologist. This article is protected by c...

Development of a Hazard Classification Scheme for Substances Used in the Fraudulent Adulteration of Foods.

Food fraud, the intentional misrepresentation of the true identity of a food product or ingredient for economic gain, is a threat to consumer confidence and public health and has received increased attention from both regulators and the food industry. Following updates to food safety certification standards and publication of new U.S. regulatory requirements, we undertook a project to (i) develop a scheme to classify food fraud-related adulterants based on their potential health hazard and (ii) apply this s...

Lack of Improvement in Scientific Integrity: An Analysis of WoS Retractions by Chinese Researchers (1997-2016).

This study investigated the status quo of article retractions by Chinese researchers. The bibliometric information of 834 retractions from the Web of Science SCI-expanded database were downloaded and analysed. The results showed that the number of retractions increased in the past two decades, and misconduct such as plagiarism, fraud, and faked peer review explained approximately three quarters of the retractions. Meanwhile, a large proportion of the retractions seemed typical of deliberate fraud, which mig...

The Impact of Education on Certified Nursing Assistants' Identification of Strategies to Manage Behaviors Associated With Dementia.

The nursing care of hospitalized patients with dementia is planned and supervised by registered nurses. This care is delivered using a team approach, including certified nursing assistants, who may lack the knowledge and skills to properly provide care and manage the challenging behaviors associated with dementia. This article describes an innovative, multimodal education program designed to help certified nursing assistants acquire this knowledge and skill. Use of post-then-pre evaluation showed the positi...

Is there evidence that the yearly numbers of children newly certified with sight impairment in England and Wales has increased between 1999/2000 and 2014/2015? A cross-sectional study.

To use routine data capture from hospitals in England and Wales to identify whether there has been an increase in the annual numbers of children newly certified sight impaired in England and Wales between 1999/2000 and 2014/2015 and to examine causes of certifiable sight impairment in children certified in 2014/2015.

Algorithm guided outlining of 105 pancreatic cancer liver metastases in Ultrasound.

Manual segmentation of hepatic metastases in ultrasound images acquired from patients suffering from pancreatic cancer is common practice. Semiautomatic measurements promising assistance in this process are often assessed using a small number of lesions performed by examiners who already know the algorithm. In this work, we present the application of an algorithm for the segmentation of liver metastases due to pancreatic cancer using a set of 105 different images of metastases. The algorithm and the two exa...

Certified Nurse-Midwives' Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behaviors About Infant Safe Sleep.

Little is known about the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of certified nurse-midwives related to sudden infant death syndrome and infant safe sleep. However, this population is an important and trusted source of information for pregnant women and may provide guidance on infant care. We explored these topics with certified nurse-midwives to identify potential barriers as well as enabling and reinforcing factors associated with providing infant safe sleep education in the prenatal health care environment.

The Extrapolation Conundrum: Finding a Unified Theory for the Use of Statistical Sampling in Medicare Fraud Cases Brought Under the False Claims Act.

The limits of the decentred state: the case of policing insurance claims fraud.

Existing research clearly shows that the public-private divide is continuously being challenged, recast and transformed. However, this article argues that a sharp distinction between public and private continues to operate as an important norm for professionals involved in the investigation of insurance claims fraud in Sweden. It shows how power within private insurance companies and the police authority is organized around the public-private divide, which is in turn mobilized to justify repression and to g...

Characteristics of Spontaneous Births Attended by Midwives and Physicians in US Hospitals in 2014.

This study compares characteristics and birth outcomes of women attended by certified nurse-midwives/certified midwives (midwives) and physicians in US hospitals in 2014.

Multifactorial assessment of measurement errors affecting intraoral quantitative sensory testing reliability.

Measurement error of intraoral quantitative sensory testing (QST) has been assessed using traditional methods for reliability, such as intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs). Most studies reporting QST reliability focused on assessing one source of measurement error at a time, e.g., inter- or intra-examiner (test-retest) reliabilities and employed two examiners to test inter-examiner reliability. The present study used a complex design with multiple examiners with the aim of assessing the reliability of...

An opportunity for PAs as obstetrical laborists.

The obstetrical laborist, based on the hospitalist model, can improve quality and safety of labor and delivery care. A laborist can be a physician assistant (PA), certified nurse midwife, or obstetrician/gynecologist who provides care using a scheduled shifts model. Workforce trends show a rapid increase in certified nurse midwives and PAs, which could stimulate the laborist movement and increase opportunities for PAs.

Immediate Postpartum Contraception: A Survey Needs Assessment of a National Sample of Midwives.

Immediate postpartum long-acting, reversible contraception (LARC)-providing intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants immediately following birth-is an effective strategy to prevent unintended pregnancies and improve birth spacing. We measured US certified nurse-midwives' (CNMs') and certified midwives' (CMs') knowledge, training needs, current practice, and perceived barriers to providing immediate postpartum LARC.

Brain death and organ donation in Argentine pediatric intensive care units. A multicenter study.

Brain death (BD) is a condition determined by the complete and irreversible absence of brain functions. Maintenance of vital functions creates an opportunity for organ donation. A retrospective study was carried out in 7 pediatric intensive care units of Argentina (from 1/1/2013 to 9/30/2016) to determine the incidence of clinical and certified BD, and the proportion of effective transplantations. Among deceased patients, 19.14% (147/768) met the clinical requirements for BD, and the main cause of BD was mu...

Applying high-resolution melting (HRM) technology to olive oil and wine authenticity.

Olive oil and wine production have a worldwide economic impact. Their market reliability is under great concern because of the increasing number of fraud and adulteration attempts. The need for a traceability system in all its extension is crucial particularly for the cases of olive oils and wines with certified labels, in which only a limited number of olives and grapevine varieties, respectively, are allowed in a restricted well-defined geographical area. Molecular markers have been vastly applied to the ...

Secondary organic aerosol production from gasoline vehicle exhaust: Effects of engine technology, cold start, and emission certification standard.

Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation from dilute gasoline vehicle exhaust was investigated using a Potential Aerosol Mass (PAM) oxidation flow reactor during chassis dynamometer testing using the cold-start unified cycle (UC). The test fleet consisted of 16 vehicles, 10 equipped with gasoline direct injection engines (GDI vehicles) and 6 equipped with port fuel injection engines (PFI vehicles), certified to a wide range of emissions standards, from Federal Tier0 to California Super Ultra-Low Emission V...

Repeatability and reproducibility of a telemanipulated fracture reduction system.

We evaluate the inter- and intraobserver variability of a telemanipulated femur fracture reduction system using a joystick device. Five examiners performed virtual reduction of 3D femur fracture models on two separate occasions. We assessed the inter- and intraobserver variability for the final alignment and reduction. The average difference between testing rounds was only 0.3 mm for overall displacement and 0.5° for overall rotation. There was an average time reduction between rounds of 11.7 s. The mean...

Fuzzy inference model evaluating turn for Parkinson's disease patients.

Parkinson's disease is a chronic illness that affects motor skills. The Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale sponsored by the Movement Disorder Society (MDS-UPDRS) quantifies the current state of the disease based on clinician's observations. In this scale, turning is part of the gait assessment, yet specific guidelines on which features to observe and rate are still unclear. What is more, only visual impairment detection is used as the main subjective rating tool. In this respect, four biomechanical fe...

The use of real-time feedback to improve kinematic marker placement consistency among novice examiners.

Marker placement deviation has been shown to be the largest source of error in gait kinematic data, limiting the ability of clinicians and researchers to conduct between-day or between-center investigations. Prior marker-placement standardization methods are either impractical for a clinical setting or rely on expert marker placement. However, a recently developed, real-time feedback tool has been developed and shown to improve marker placement and downstream kinematic calculations. The purpose of this stud...

An Appraisal of the Carlisle-Stouffer-Fisher Method for Assessing Study Data Integrity and Fraud.

Data fabrication and scientific misconduct have been recently uncovered in the anesthesia literature, partly via the work of John Carlisle. In a recent article in Anaesthesia, Carlisle analyzed 5087 randomized clinical trials from anesthesia and general medicine journals from 2000 to 2015. He concluded that in about 6% of studies, data comparing randomized groups on baseline variables, before the given intervention, were either too similar or dissimilar compared to that expected by usual sampling variabilit...

DNA barcoding reveals the mislabeling of fish in a popular tourist destination in Brazil.

The consumption of raw fish has increased considerably in the West, since it is said to be potentially healthier than processed fish (for containing omega 3 and 6, essential amino acids and vitamins). However this potential benefit, as well as the taste, value and even the risk of extinction are not the same for all species of fish, constituting grounds for fraud. Using the principles of the DNA barcode we revealed mislabelling of fish in Japanese restaurants and fishmarkets in Florianópolis, a popular tou...
