We report clinicopathological experience of microscopic colitis in a population-based case series in Northern Ireland, over a nine year period.
The lack of information on public and private physiotherapy supply in Ireland makes current and future resource allocation decisions difficult.
Abnormalities in blood lipid levels are causally linked with cardiovascular disease and pancreatitis. Data is limited regarding lipid abnormalities in Ireland.
The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI) Delphi process identified prevention and treatment of parastomal hernia (PSH) as the second highest priority non-cancer related colorectal pathology. This position statement aims to summarize the current evidence base.
Treatment for opioid dependence in Ireland is provided predominantly by general practitioners (GP) who have undergone additional training in opioid agonist treatment (OAT) and substance misuse. The National Methadone Treatment Programme (MTP) was introduced in 1998, and was designed to treat the opioid dependent population and to regulate the prescribing regimes at the time. The past two decades have seen the increased prescribing of methadone in primary care and changes in type of opioid abused, in particu...
Centralisation of rectal cancer surgery has altered the delivery of colorectal cancer care in Ireland. This has resulted in an increased demand for elective surgical beds in designated centres.
The objective of this study was to measure consensus among expert stakeholders on a set of positive ageing outcome indicators in Ireland. Stakeholders from academic, public, and voluntary sectors and older people participated in a 3-round, online, Delphi study to evaluate indicators for participation, security, healthy ageing, attitudes to ageing, and information access. Evaluation criteria included: acceptability, utility, accessibility, ranking, and balance and coherence. Consensus was achieved on 56 key ...
The objective of this non-interventional study was to investigate the long-term safety and effectiveness of certolizumab pegol (CZP) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the UK and Ireland.
The Republic of Ireland has one of the world's most restrictive abortion laws, allowing abortion only to preserve a pregnant woman's life. We examined the impact of the law on women's options for accessing abortion, their decision-making regarding whichpathway to follow, and their experiences with their chosen approach.
Erectile dysfunction is common among older men; however, diagnosis and treatment compared to reported prevalence is low. We aim to identify the degree to which older men are offered treatment for the condition and determine the level of unmet need within Northern Ireland (NI).
This study aimed to investigate the practice of advance care planning (ACP) education within pulmonary rehabilitation programs (PRPs) in Ireland.
The re-emergence of iodine deficiency in the UK has recently been reported in a large cohort of teenage girls including from Northern Ireland (NI) using the gold standard spot urinary iodine concentration. We wished to explore and confirm this by analysing neonatal thyroid stimulating hormone (nTSH) levels in the NI population.
Group A streptococcus (GAS) is responsible for mild to very severe disease. The epidemiology of an upsurge in invasive GAS (iGAS) infections in Ireland, 2012-2015 was investigated.
Health has a complex relationship with economic conditions. Ireland's economic recession (2008-2013) and sharp recovery (from 2014 onwards) offers a valuable opportunity to study self-reported health and its correlates in the context of rapid economic change.
A systematic investigation into the Ireland-Claisen rearrangement of α-alkoxy esters is reported. In all cases, the use of KN(SiMe) in toluene gave rearrangement products corresponding to a Z-enolate intermediate with excellent diastereoselectivity, presumably because of chelation control. On the other hand, chelation-controlled enolate formation could be overcome for most substrates through the use of lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) in tetrahydrofuran (THF).
Despite subsisting on a low-cariogenic diet comprising virtually nothing more than potatoes and dairy products, poor oral health affected the quality of life for the poor of nineteenth-century Ireland. This study investigates potential biocultural reasons that may explain why this was the case.
The rate of induction of labour varies across Health Service Executive hospital regions in Ireland averaging at 23.3 per 100 deliveries in 2005-2009. The increasing rate of elective induction of labour in Ireland calls for more studies looking into associated maternal and/or neonatal outcomes.
Humans have always affected their ecosystems, but finding evidence for significant and lasting changes to preindustrial landscapes is rare. We report on human-caused changes to the nitrogen cycle in Ireland in the Bronze Age, associated with intensification of agriculture and animal husbandry that resulted in long-term changes to the nitrogen isotope values of animals (wild and domesticates) during the Holocene. Major changes to inputs and cycling of soil nitrogen occurred through deforestation, land cleara...
The International Spinal Cord Society and World Health Organisation recommend the collection of epidemiological data on traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI). A 1-year prospective study is ongoing in Ireland. While the results of this study are awaited, it was concluded from a feasibility exercise that a complete retrospective dataset, 2010-2015, could be obtained and would be useful for service planning.
The prevalence of mental incapacity for treatment decisions among medical and surgical hospital inpatients is poorly understood or not known in many countries, including Ireland.
Nursing is informed by values that guide care ethos and activities. Embodiment of these core values, has become a matter of concern. Reports outlining deficiencies in health care followed by polemics in nursing journals have called into question whether nursing students are sufficiently motivated by values and educated in their application. This paper explores these values among undergraduate nursing students in the Republic of Ireland. Considering the strong religious tradition in health care in Ireland, r...
Clinical guidelines place considerable emphasis on early swallow screening, as it has significant impact on patient outcomes. This study aims to examine perspectives and practices of speech and language therapists (SLTs) in the Republic of Ireland on swallow screening, exploring challenges in screening methods to improve practice and facilitate research.
During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, toothache must have been a common complaint in Ireland, to judge from the number of toothache 'cures' reported as part of The Schools' Collection (SC) or 'Bailiúchán na Scol', a folklore-collecting scheme that was undertaken in the Irish Republic in 1937 and 1938, and upon which this article is based. These cures range from quasi-medical treatments, such as packing the affected tooth with tobacco, to more folkloric, or magico-religious cures, such ...
A combined academic and clinical training programme for junior doctors in Ireland, the academic track for internship, has recently been launched. The academic track offers newly graduated doctors protected time within the working week to undertake a research project in addition to funding, an academic supervisor, and additional training in research skills. This study seeks to investigate the views of undergraduate medical students.
