BACKGROUND: Environmental justice research shows how socially disadvantaged groups are more exposed and more vulnerable to environmental pollution. At the same time, these groups are less represented and, thus, less visible in biomedical studies. This socioeconomic participation bias is a form of environmental injustice within research practice itself. METHODS: We designed, implemented and evaluated a targeted recruitment strategy to enhance the participation of socially disadvantaged pregnant women in a human biomonitoring study in Belgium...

BACKGROUND: Patient perceptions of quality of care (QoC) are directly linked with patient safety and clinical effectiveness. We need patient-designed QoC instruments that work across languages and countries to optimise studies across systems in this area. Few QoC measurement tools exist that assess all aspects of QoC from the patient perspective. This paper describes the development and validation of a comprehensive measure to assess patient perceptions of QoC that incorporates technical and interpersonal aspects of care and is grounded in the established Institute of Medicine (IOM) QoC framework...

Infertility is a major life crisis affecting couples' psychosocial and physical health. We aimed to assess the quality of life in Turkish infertile couples. This cross-sectional survey was carried out in 127 infertile couples admitted to a University Hospital. The quality of life was measured using the fertility quality of life tool (FertiQoL) scale. Women had lower overall quality of life than men. Women and men who were married for fewer than 10 years had a significantly lower emotional score. Women who had a history of infertility treatment, men who have lived in the town or village men with primary infertility and men who have had primary education or lower, had lower scores for mind/body subscale...

Congenital central hypothyroidism (C-CH) is a very rare disease. Alterations in genes included in pituitary development, mutations of the immunoglobulin superfamily member 1 (IGSF1) and transducin β-like protein 1(TBL1X ) can result in C-CH with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies. However, mutations of the thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor or TSH-beta (TSHB) gene are responsible for isolated congenital central hypothyroidism. In this paper, we present 2 patients from the same Turkish family with a novel mutation of TSHB...

Scimitar syndrome is the constellation of malformations including an abnormal venous drainage of the right lung into the inferior vena cava, associated with the right lung and systemic supply to the right lung. The anomalous vein looks like the curved, Turkish sword (scimitar), hence the name.The adult form of scimitar syndrome is rare, and it is usually an incidental diagnosis based on the characteristic finding on radiological imaging since the patients are usually asymptomatic or with minimal symptoms.Our patient presented with a rare presentation of scimitar syndrome, which is tachyarrhythmia (sinus tachycardia, with episodes of supraventricular tachycardia)...

BACKGROUND: In the Netherlands, ethnic minority populations visit their general practitioner (GP) more often than the indigenous population. An explanation for this association is lacking. Recently, health literacy is suggested as a possible explaining mechanism. Internationally, associations between health literacy and health care use, and between ethnicity and health literacy have been studied separately, but, so far, have not been linked to each other. In the Netherlands, some expectations have been expressed with regard to supposed low health literacy of ethnic minority groups, however, no empirical study has been done so far...
