Midwives are working harder than ever before. With a rising birth rate and a shortage of 3,500 midwives, professional burnout and stress are increasingly common. We simply cannot continue as we are - relying on overstretched teams to keep our maternity services afloat is not good enough. We know Royal College of Midwives' (RCM) members have never felt so challenged in their ability to provide high-quality care.

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether favourable perceptions of the learning environment (LE) were associated with better quality of life, less burnout and more empathy across three undergraduate medical education programmes in Israel, Malaysia and China. METHODS: Cross-sectional surveys were administered at the end of the 2013-2014 academic year at three medical schools: Technion American Medical Students Program (TAMS) in Israel, Perdana University-Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland School of Medicine (PURCSI) in Malaysia and Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) in China...

PURPOSE: The University of Surrey-Lilly Real World Evidence (RWE) diabetes cohort has been established to provide insights into the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). There are 3 areas of study due to be conducted to provide insights into T2DM management: exploration of medication adherence, thresholds for changing diabetes therapies, and ethnicity-related or socioeconomic-related disparities in management. This paper describes the identification of a cohort of people with T2DM which will be used for these analyses, through a case finding algorithm, and describes the characteristics of the identified cohort...

REVIEW
Gus Koerbin, Jillian R Tate
Reference intervals (RIs) are used to help clinicians determine if a patient can be classified as being in a diseased or healthy state and there are often sound scientific and clinical reasons for differences in RIs. One of the current strategic priorities for the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists is to encourage and assist laboratories to achieve harmonisation of RIs for common clinical chemistry analytes where sound calibration and traceability are in place. This need is based on good laboratory practice, providing the clinician with results that allow appropriate and reliable clinical interpretation and progression further toward the national e-health framework and a single electronic health record...

For more than a decade there has been a global effort to harmonise all phases of the testing process, with particular emphasis on the most frequently utilised measurands. In addition, it is recognised that calculated parameters derived from these measurands should also be a target for harmonisation. Using data from the Aussie Normals study we report reference intervals for three calculated parameters: serum osmolality, serum anion gap and albumin-adjusted serum calcium. The Aussie Normals study was an a priori study that analysed samples from 1856 healthy volunteers...

This was a questionnaire-based study of overseas doctors, who came to the United Kingdom through the International Doctors Training Programme (IDTP) of Obstetrics and Gynaecology during the period of 2009-2012. The study was conducted at the end of their two-years training placement to find out what went well, what did not go well, where problems were encountered, and how they could have been avoided. We traced 48 overseas doctors, 35 (73%) responded to our questionnaire. Only 30% (9) felt that less than 50% of their expectations were met during their training period, 73...

The aim of this study was to objectively measure demand for critical care services in a southern African tertiary referral centre. We carried out a point prevalence study of medical and surgical admissions over a 48-h period at the University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, recording the following: age; sex; diagnosis; Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) status and National Early Warning Score. One-hundred and twenty medical and surgical admissions were studied. Fifty-four patients (45%) had objective evidence of a requirement for critical care review and potential or probable admission to an intensive care unit, according to the Royal College of Physicians (UK) guidelines...

BACKGROUND: The changing focus of transfusion medicine (TM) toward the hospital rather than the blood center and the involvement of TM specialists in a wide range of patient blood management and other specialist activities in the hospital, rather than just blood bank activities, means that the training of the transfusion specialists of the future should be under constant review. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: We provide overviews of the current training programs of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education in the United States and the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board in the United Kingdom, along with specific descriptions of our own training programs at Stanford and Oxford...

How might translational vaccinology contribute to tackling some of the greatest global health challenges of modern times? Camilla Benfield, a lecturer in virology at the Royal Veterinary College, recently attended an international conference that considered this question and how some of the key barriers to the development and launch of new global health vaccines might be overcome. Here, she highlights areas where cross-fertilisation of ideas and techniques between veterinary and human fields could have mutual benefit...

This paper describes the clinical treatment of two cases presented by the recipient of the 2015 Bi-collegiate Membership in Orthodontics John Kay Williams Gold Medal of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Glasgow. The first case describes the management of an 11-year-old male with a class II Division 1 malocclusion with a 9 mm overjet complicated by an upper anterior odontome and moderate upper arch crowding. The second case describes a 14-year-old female with a class III malocclusion with a reverse overjet complicated by moderate lower arch crowding and previously removed upper permanent canines...

BACKGROUND: Oxytocin has been proposed to mediate amygdala dysfunction associated with altered emotion processing in schizophrenia, but the contribution of oxytocin pathway genes is yet to be investigated. AIMS: To identify potential different contributions of three oxytocin receptor polymorphisms (rs53576, rs237902 and rs2254298) between patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders (SCZ), affective spectrum disorders (AD) and healthy controls (HC). METHOD: In a total of 346 participants (104 with SCZ, 100 with AD, and 142 HC) underwent genotyping and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during an emotional faces matching paradigm...

BACKGROUND: Although there is evidence of a relationship between religion/spirituality and mental health, it remains unclear how Brazilian psychiatrists deal with the religion/spirituality of their patients. AIMS: To explore whether Brazilian psychiatrists enquire about religion/spirituality in their practice and whether their own beliefs influence their work. METHOD: Four hundred and eighty-four Brazilian psychiatrists completed a cross-sectional survey on religion/spirituality and clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Routine symptom monitoring and feedback improves out-patient outcomes, but the feasibility of its use to inform decisions about discharge from in-patient care has not been explored. AIMS: To examine the potential value to clinical decision-making of monitoring symptoms during psychiatric in-patient hospitalisation. METHOD: A total of 1102 in-patients in a private psychiatric hospital, primarily with affective and neurotic disorders, rated daily distress levels throughout their hospital stay...
