In 2014, the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) launched a project called Clarity in Collaboration to develop data definitions related to midwifery and maternity care delivery processes. These definitions are needed to ensure midwifery care delivered in collaborative care models is accurately and consistently captured in clinical documentation systems, data registries, and systems being developed as part of health care restructuring and payment reform. The Clarity in Collaboration project builds on the efforts of the Women's Health Registry Alliance (WHRA), which was recently established by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists...

BACKGROUND: Medication nonadherence is problematic throughout health care practice. Patient nonadherence is a result of several factors, such as financial issues, confusion about the medication, or concerns about possible side effects. Efforts to improve adherence have been implemented, but new strategies are needed to ensure that patients fill their medication prescriptions and adhere to their prescribed use. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether providing patients with a free 30-day supply of medication at the point of care via a dispensing kiosk-a secure, computerized cabinet placed in the prescriber's office-that provides sample medication and educational materials had a measurable impact on adherence and health care cost...

BACKGROUND: The INVESTIGATE-I study was designed to inform a future definitive randomised trial of invasive urodynamic testing, compared to basic clinical assessment with noninvasive tests prior to surgical treatment, in women with stress urinary incontinence or stress-predominant mixed urinary incontinence. In a pilot randomised controlled trial, women from seven participating sites were screened, consented and randomised. Overall, 771 patients were identified from clinic notes and correspondence as being potential recruits and were sent the Patient Information Leaflet...

The 'problem' identified in the paper [J. Chem.Phys. 144, 044109 (2016)] does not arise in a properly formulated non-relativistic Hamiltonian formalism for both classical and quantum electrodynamics.

The uniqueness issue of SDE decomposition theory proposed by Ao and his co-workers has recently been discussed. A comprehensive study to investigate connections among different landscape theories [J. Chem. Phys. 144, 094109 (2016)] has pointed out that the decomposition is generally not unique, while Ao et al. recently argue that such conclusions are "incorrect" because the uniqueness of the decomposition for Ornstein-Uhlenbeck (O-U) process has been claimed before. In this response, we will demonstrate that the claimed "uniqueness" of the O-U process decomposition is invalid to serve as a counterexample according to the original definition of SDE decomposition...

For the vertical electron detachment energies of triply-bridged Mg2(CN)5(-) superhalides, the Outer Valence Green Function (OVGF) yields results similar to those of the coupled-cluster singles and doubles plus approximate triples, or CCSD(T), method. Invalid comparisons between states with different symmetry or localization properties underlie the assertion of Yin et al that OVGF produces large discrepancies with respect to CCSD(T) for several isomers of Mg2(CN)5(-).

Connections between a "SDE decomposition" to other frameworks constructing landscape in non-equilibrium processes were discussed by Zhou and Li [J. Chem. Phys. 144, 094109 (2016)]. It was speculated that the SDE decomposition would not be generally unique. In this comment, we demonstrate both mathematically and physically that the speculation is incorrect and the uniqueness is guaranteed under appropriate conditions. A few related issues are also clarified, such as the limitation of obtaining potential function from steady state distribution...

The control of network-coupled nonlinear dynamical systems is an active area of research in the nonlinear science community. Coupled oscillator networks represent a particularly important family of nonlinear systems, with applications ranging from the power grid to cardiac excitation. Here, we study the control of network-coupled limit cycle oscillators, extending the previous work that focused on phase oscillators. Based on stabilizing a target fixed point, our method aims to attain complete frequency synchronization, i...

AIM: To describe and characterise the first cohort of Post-Authorisation Safety Study (PASS) protocols reviewed under the recent European Pharmacovigilance Legislation. METHODS: A systematic approach was used to compile all publicly available information on PASS protocols and assessments submitted from July 2012 to July 2015 from Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) minutes, European Medicines Agency (EMA) and European Network of Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology (ENCePP) webpages...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this mixed-methods study was to investigate vicarious posttraumatic growth in certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) who have struggled after attending traumatic births. Vicarious posttraumatic growth involves positive changes in a clinician's life due to caring for patients who are traumatized. METHODS: A convergent parallel mixed-methods design was used. The American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) sent out e-mails to all CNM members with a link to the electronic survey...

Hypertension is associated with alterations in the vascular structure, which in turn enhance the risk of cardiovascular events. Notably, anti-hypertensive treatment may prevent or regress the changes of arterial wall structures. Lercanidipine is a third-generation CCB with peculiar pharmaceutical properties. Enalapril is an effective drug acting on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone axis. This commentary discusses the vascular effects of the lercanidipine/enalapril combination, and comments on their potential clinical relevance...

Hewett Cottrell Watson and Edward Forbes were two naturalists of the Victorian age. They were protagonists on a dispute that generated comment and serves as an illuminating case study of misunderstanding in priority issues. Watson accused Forbes of having plagiarized his original classification of the British plants into groups on the basis of their geographical distribution. This controversy originated mostly from a so-far-ignored basic difference in Watson's and Forbes' ideas about biogeographical regionalization...
