Compare 2 application techniques of ChloraPrep Swabstick--3 swabsticks at once versus 3 swabsticks used one-at-a-time. Hibiclens applied according to the manufacturer's directions. Sterile swabsticks (wetted with sterile water) applied using the same method as the ChloraPrep Swabstick.
White matter fiber tracking may provide a novel tool to assess the integrity of injured motor tracts in the cervical spine. It provides information about fiber directions which is not given by conventional MRI. White matter fiber tracking in the brain is used at several institutions, including our own medical college, for presurgical planning of tumor excision. We believe that the technical and clinical experience gained for the brain can be applied to fiber tracking in the cer...
Introduction The most common breast cancer originates within the breast milk ducts, and is called ductal carcinoma. After the stage where the cancer is found only within the ducts, it invades the breast tissue beyond the ducts, and becomes invasive cancer (Infiltrating Duct Carcinoma). Breast cancer located within the ducts is called intra ductal carcinoma in situ- DCIS. DCIS is the developing cancer and usually does not metastasize. Another type of breast cancer originates wit...
The investigators are doing a study to learn how to support patients aged 60+ in taking more breaks from sitting. The goal of the study is to find out if using commercially available devices are helpful in reducing sitting time.

This study will look at how different areas of the human brain control fine hand movements. Thirty-five participants 21 years and older will be enrolled in this study-25 healthy, right-handed people, and 10 stroke patients. They will undergo two outpatient sessions, each lasting up to 3 hours...
This is an observational, multicenter, nationwide study where information will be collected on the follow-up of patients with chronic hepatitis C who have a viral response at the end of treatment with peginterferon alfa-2b plus ribavirin (administered according to the directions on the products' labeling). No administration of treatment is planned as a result of study enrollment.
The proposed study would evaluate the benefits of riluzole add-on treatment to patients with schizophrenia who are already receiving medications, but still experience symptoms. Neuroprotective medication riluzole is currently approved for treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease), a severe neurological illness. Due to its unique mechanism of action, riluzole, if effective in helping the symptoms of schizophrenia, would open novel directions in treatment ...
There are several benefits of over-the-counter medications, yet there is little research evaluating how to increase patient compliance when a health care provider suggests an over-the-counter (OTC) medication. We are evaluating two types of physician directions to see which increases patient compliance with OTC medications.
The purpose of the study is to collect outcomes related to a quality improvement project assessing the feasibility and effectiveness of a medical scribe program in which medical scribes accompany clinicians during their visits with patients. The medical scribes involved in the project are professional scribes and medical students who will accompany clinicians during patient visits and takes notes, enabling the clinician to engage more directly with the patient.
PCI (optimal catheter-based coronary revascularization) + intensive medical therapy is superior to intensive medical therapy alone using the combined endpoint of all-cause mortality or nonfatal MI.
The primary objective of this study is to document the rates of success and serious complications among women having outpatient medical abortions with 200 mg mifepristone + 800 buccal misoprostol at 64-70 days of gestation.
Medical clowns are known to assist in relaxing children and allowing better cooperation during performance of medical procedures. The ability of medical clowns to improve the motivation of children to perform active tasks was never examined to date. The investigators would like to examine the influence of the clowns' presence on the performance of pulmonary function test.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if BhCG testing to determine the completion of medical abortion simplifies the medical abortion protocol. Investigators hypothesize that women randomized to ultrasonographic determination of completion of medical abortion will have MORE follow-up visits/interventions beyond standard protocol than those randomized to medical abortion follow-up with serum BhCG. The investigators also hope to explore satisfaction with BhCG based follow-up ...
The doctor-patient relationship was becoming worse. More and more work-related violence has happened to physicians and nurses. A portion of medical students felt depressed and thought that the career future was gloomy. The study was designed to measure the empathy, an vital element of professionalism, well-being of mental and study emotion. Furthermore, the investigators explored an intervention of group study to promote medical students' professionalism, mental health and stud...
Recently The Department of Health of Taiwan has launched the "Internationalize Medical Services Flagship Program", expecting to promote Taiwan's high-quality of medical services to the international market, and anticipating "customers stroll in, medical services walked out". In order to avoid expansion of this program might alienate the rights and best interests of local people seeking medical services, therefore, this research project is a join effort of experts to form...
