REVIEW
R Riskiyana, M Claramita, G R Rahayu
Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the implementation of interprofessional education (IPE) across the globe. By looking at the timeline of each previous study, it can be inferred that the implementation of IPE has been improving continuously. However, the effectiveness of IPE still cannot be easily generalized due to misconceptions regarding how interprofessional collaboration capabilities should be evaluated. This study aims to generalize the learning outcomes that were produced by IPE in a global context and analyse the contributing factors...

Privacy is commonly regarded as a regulatory requirement achieved via technical and organizational management practices. Those working in the field of informatics often play a role in privacy preservation as a result of their expertise in information technology, workflow analysis, implementation science, or related skills. Viewing privacy from the perspective of patients whose protected health information is at risk broadens the considerations to include the perceived duality of privacy; the existence of privacy within a context unique to each patient; the competing needs inherent within privacy management; the need for particular consideration when data are shared; and the need for patients to control health information in a global setting...

Microtubules (MTs), polymers of alpha/beta-tubulin heterodimers, are involved in crucial functions in eukaryotic cells. MTs physiology can be influenced by a variety of post-translational modifications (PTMs), including tyrosination, detyrosination, delta 2 modification, acetylation, polyglutamylation, polyglycylation. In mammalian oocytes, MTs are essential for meiosis, regulating the formation of meiotic spindle and chromosomes movements. Considering that the patterns of tubulin PTMs (tyrosination, detyrosination, acetylation, polyglutamylation and delta 2 modification) have not been investigated in ovine oocytes, this study has been designed to investigate their presence and quantification in in vitro matured (IVM) adult and prepubertal ovine oocytes...
