The legalization of recreational marijuana use and sales in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington State is a dramatic change in U.S. substance abuse policy that places a priority on developing regulatory and enforcement systems that prevent distribution of retail recreational marijuana to minors. Responsible marijuana vendor training, modeled after effective responsible alcoholic beverage training, has the potential to help the states prevent distribution to minors. This res...
The overarching goal of B'More Healthy Retail Rewards (BHRR) is to develop, implement, and evaluate a pilot multi-level communications and pricing intervention to improve access to and consumption of healthy foods in low-income areas of Baltimore City, Maryland. BHRR has three primary aims: (1) to conduct formative research with representatives of multiple levels of the Baltimore food environment (i.e., local wholesalers, retail food store owners, and consumers) in order to se...

The researchers hypothesize that there is a correlation between Vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) performance and innate athletic skill level. A similar study was conducted in female, young adult gymnasts where a correlation was shown between VOR performance and gymnastic skill level. However, the results from this study did not suggest that VOR differences develop as a result of practice; rather that the differences in VOR may simply allow some individuals to become better perform...
It is generally agreed that artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) is the malaria therapy of choice but there is much less agreement about the best ACT-deployment strategies. Countries are now beginning to adopt policies to enhance ACT deployment that aim to address 2 key goals: (i) making ACTs more readily and speedily accessible to patients: or (ii) targeting ACTs to patients shown to have malaria parasitaemia. The Tanzanian Government has secured funding to address bo...
The purposes of the present study are to determine the glycemic and insulinemic responses, the satiety rate and the postprandial plasma concentrations of free fatty acids, triglycerides and satiety hormones after the ingestion of four types of breads: handcrafted bread made with wheat organic flour; handcrafted bread with wheat flour of large-scale retail distribution; handcrafted bread with organic einkorn flour and a commercial wheat bread.
Background: People with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) tend to get infections more easily. This is because their immune systems are weakened. Hepatitis B is a virus that can be transmitted when body fluids from an infected person enter the body of an uninfected person. This virus can be dangerous for people with leukemia and lymphoma. HEPLISAV-B is a new hepatitis B vaccine. Researchers want to see if it can protect people with CLL...
NuVal® shelf nutrition labels rate the nutritional quality of foods on a scale of 1 (worst) to 100 (best). In 2014, NuVal updated their nutrient profiling system which changed the NuVal score on many foods. The investigators took advantage of this "natural experiment" to assess the extent to which a change in the NuVal score at a grocery chain influenced yogurt purchases, a category with a wide range of more and less healthy alternatives. The investigators supplemented the ret...
The study team will implement and evaluate a team-based, informatics-driven intervention that integrates primary care clinical decision support with active outreach from pharmacists. The intervention will proactively (1) identify and address nonadherence for adults with chronic diseases; (2) improve management of previously uncontrolled blood pressure, blood sugar, and lipid disorders; (3) increase patient involvement in medication decision making; and (4) develop informatics s...
In Qatar, tobacco use is one of the main causes of premature deaths and preventable diseases. As per the 2013 Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS), 12.1% of adults and 20.2% of men in Qatar smoke tobacco, and 55.4% of this smoke an average of 16 cigarettes or more per day. Moreover, 15.7% of school students aged 13 to 15 years currently use some form of tobacco according to the 2013 Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS). In Qatar, tobacco-related diseases including cardiovascular di...
In efforts to promote a healthy diet, the Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB) has attempted to use Front-of-Pack (FOP) labelling to supplement traditional nutrition labelling. The Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS) identifies food items within a specific category of foods as healthier choices. The original logos were enhanced to include additional information focusing on particular macronutrients, taking one of two themes; it either indicates that a product contains more of a hea...
This study will investigate the effect of simulation-based training with mastery learning (SBML) on novice performers' lumbar puncture (LP) performance in a clinical setting. The study will investigate the effect on operators' performance, stress level, and on patient experienced stress, confidence in operator, and patient-related outcomes of pain, and risk of subsequent Post Dural Puncture Headache (PDPH), and days of sickness leave. The study will compare the effect of the t...
The aims of the study are: - To measure health literacy (HL) levels in a sample composed of members of a health mutual (Solidaris), and its potential associations with several determinants (health, health services consumption, health behaviours...) - To identify potential groups at risk of a lower HL - To identify the determinants of HL level
This study evaluates the feasibility and the potential positive health impacts of a novel "health education theater," which will task participants of a health education program to create an original 10-minute theater that is required to use the health guidelines about physical activity and diet/nutrition. The outcomes include the changes in (a) knowledge about and (b) compliance to these guidelines.
Cochlear implants are surgically implanted devices which restore the ability to hear to the hearing impaired. While remarkably successful, even in the best of performers restoration of hearing to levels of normal listeners is unusual. Approximately 3 weeks after surgery, cochlear implants are activated via mapping - a process in which each individual electrode (FDA approved cochlear implants have between 12 and 22 electrodes) is turned on and the stimulus level adjusted to a le...
This is a research study to determine if a personal health record, called myHERO, will help improve health. A personal health record is a secure internet (also called online) tool that contains personal health information like medications, diagnosed conditions, allergies and laboratory values (like CD4 cells and viral load). This study will also help explain if a personal health record influences the relationship with a doctor or nurse practitioner and their patients. The purpo...

This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a medical illness self-management program in improving the health and health behavior of people who are receiving care at a community mental health center.
A randomised trial with individual patients as units of observation will be carried out. Health coaching is used to modify health behaviour and thus improve disease control and health status, as well as use of health care services. A personal health coach is assigned to each patient and they are in weekly contact through telephone. The intervention lasts for 12 months. No intervention is offered to the patients in the control arm.

This project is designed to examine the impact of tailored feedback on site performance. The investigators' objective is to evaluate whether a 'personalized and targeted' feedback, education and performance improvement intervention has a greater impact on adherence to recommended guidelines than standard feedback. The investigators hypothesize that a site-specific report with centrally identified targets for improvement paired with target specific interventions will enable si...
