The very most part of clinical research in France takes place in teaching hospitals. Advantages to develop it in others hospitals are numerous: access to innovative treatments, improvement of healthcare quality, hospitals' attractiveness, increased inclusion rates and reduced selection bias. The objectives of the study are to report the current situation of clinical research outside of teaching hospitals in France.
The investigators will evaluate sensitization to animal allergens and allergic symptom during contacting animal allergens in Korean veterinary researchers who attend their annual conference. The investigators will compare sensitization to animal allergen and other clinical and occupational factors between subjects who suffer from allergic symptom during contacting animal and those who do not.
Core elements of effective antibiotic stewardship programs (ASPs) have been identified and evidence-based guidelines have been developed for implementation. The majority of the evidence used for these guidelines are from published studies on the effectiveness of ASPs in large academic or large community hospitals. A significant portion of healthcare in the United States, however, takes place in small hospitals. In 2015, 73% of US hospitals had < 200 beds (4,057 hospitals) and a...

This study investigates the short-term biopsychosocial effects that occur when animals are present during therapy sessions in comparison to therapy sessions without animals, observing a group of 25 patients over 24 therapy sessions. While half of the sessions are held in presence of an animal and half without, they are as comparable as possible wit...
The study investigates the effects of animal-assisted therapy on patients with severe disorders of consciousness. The focus lies on the short-term biopsychosocial effects that occur when animals are present during therapy sessions in comparison to therapy sessions without animals, observing a group of 10 patients during 16 therapy sessions. While half of the sessions are held in presence of an animal and half without, they are as comparable as possible with respect to content ...
Management of animal induced occupational asthma is mainly avoidance, but this is not feasible for many occupations. Treatment with avoidance and conventional treatment is also not always successful. Omalizumab is FDA approved for the treatment of allergic asthma and may be effective at reducing symptoms and disease progression in the animal handlers population.
The investigators aim to conduct a randomized controlled trial of women who are pregnant or considering pregnancy to understand whether women provided with specific data on hospital-level cesarean delivery rates are more likely to select higher quality hospitals, defined as hospitals with cesarean delivery rates below the Federal HealthyPeople 2020 target of 23.9%.
Levels of blood pressure in adolescents with preeclampsia and eclampsia: Multicenter case-control study (Latin America). Maternities in Latin America: Two hospitals in Panama, one hospital in Mexico, one hospital in El Salvador, one hospital in Guatemala, two hospitals in Honduras, one hospital in Colombia, two hospitals in Peru and two hospitals in Bolivia. The objective is to evaluate the basal levels of blood pressure during pregnancy and determine if there is any in...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the common symptoms leading to an Animal Assisted Therapy consult, and to measure its (AAT) influence on the symptoms and feelings of hospitalized patients.
The relationship between human beings and animals, especially dogs, has existed for thousands of years. Historically, animals have held an important role in this relationship as they provide company, stimulus and motivation. Animals are excellent company, since their visitation they do not discriminate or segregate any person, that is, they are free of prejudice. In spite of the long-lasting presence of companion animals in human life, the idea that interaction with anim...
Effects of complementary therapies on heart failure, a leading cause of hospitalization, are unknown. Animal-assisted therapy improves physiological and psychosocial variables in healthy and hypertensive subjects. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a 12-minute hospital visit with a therapy dog improves hemodynamics, lowers neurohormone levels, and decreases state anxiety in patients hospitalized with heart failure.
This study will engage hospitals working with the New Mexico Perinatal Collaborative (NMPC) on implementing immediate postpartum long-acting reversible contraception programs. All hospitals in New Mexico interested in implementing immediate postpartum LARC programs will be eligible to participate in the NPMC program evaluation. The study will evaluate the components of this implementation program at several New Mexico hospitals using a stepped wedge design,with components being...
There is practical evidence but no scientific investigations that persons with severe disorders of consciousness can profit from animal-assisted therapy regarding their level of awareness. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of animal-assisted therapy on brain activity of inpatients at REHAB Basel with severe disorders of consciousness. To do so, the frontal brain activity of 20 the inpatients at REHAB Basel in a minimally conscious state is investigated ...
A cluster randomised pragmatic trial will be conducted within an emerging clinical information network composed of 12 Kenyan county hospitals. Hospitals will be randomised to an enhanced feedback intervention delivered over a six month period and compared to standard feedback. The trial to be implemented during a phase of implementing change in guideline recommendations for pneumonia will assess the impact of enhanced feedback on hospital uptake of the revised pneumonia treatme...

Children with severe malnutrition who are admitted sick to hospitals have a high mortality(death rate), usually because of infection. All children with severe malnutrition admitted to hospitals are treated with antibiotics(medication used to kill bacteria). However, the current antibiotics used in hospitals may not be the most effective. It is possible that the antibiotics that are currently used after initial antibiotics should be used first. No studies have been carried out t...

Antibiotic resistance in gram-negative bacteria continues to increase in US hospitals. This comes at a time when there are few new drugs in development that are active for these resistant organisms. The implication is that we must learn to use the drugs that we have more wisely and develop new strategies that will preserve existing agents. Antimicrobial "stewardship" programs are one strategy that many hospitals are adopting to improve the quality of antimicrobial use. The goa...
