BACKGROUND: Efforts are underway to improve living kidney donor (LKD) education, but current LKD concerns and information-gathering preferences have not been ascertained to inform evidence-based resource development. As a result, prior studies have found that donors desire information that is not included in current informed consent and/or educational materials. METHODS: We conducted semi-structured interviews with 50 LKDs who donated at our center to assess (1) concerns about donation that they either had personally before or after donation or heard from family members or friends, (2) information that they had desired before donation, and (3) where they sought information about donation...

BACKGROUND: Latinas suffer disproportionately from breast cancer (BC) in part due to lower guideline-concordant screening. Multiple intervention approaches have been developed to promote screening through direct patient education and empowerment approaches (i.e., training community members to share BC information). This study compares the relative effects of these approaches on: 1) women's BC screening; and, 2) women's dissemination of BC information within their social networks. DESIGN/METHODS: Our quasi-experimental trial is being implemented in community venues in two predominantly Latino neighborhoods in South and West Chicago...

BACKGROUND: Children who receive all doses of scheduled vaccines reduce their susceptibility to vaccine-preventable diseases. In India, full immunization coverage has increased significantly. However, only a small proportion of children are immunized on time. Globally, studies on factors affecting coverage of childhood immunization have found a significant impact by demand and supply-side determinants. This paper explores the demand-side determinants of timely immunization of the third dose of oral polio vaccine (OPV3) among children aged 6-11 months in the catchment areas of CORE Group Polio Project India...
