New Oxford University study finds that parenting interventions for helping children with behaviour problems are just as effective in school age, as in younger children.
In a paper published Sept. 19 in the journal Science Advances, an international team led by scientists at the University of Washington reports that DNA test results of large ivory seizures made by law enforcement have linked multiple ivory shipments over the three-year period, when this trafficking reached its peak, to the same network of dealers operating out of a handful of African ports.
People who feel anxious surrounding mass shootings tend to abandon their political ideology on typically divided issues, according to a study by two University of Kansas professors.
Women that have undiagnosed sexually transmitted infections may be at greater risk of experiencing negative premenstrual symptoms (PMS), according to new Oxford University research. The study was conducted as part of a long term partnership with the female health, fertility and period-tracking app, CLUE. The findings, published in Evolution Medicine & Public Health, suggest that the presence of an undiagnosed STI might aggravate the negative premenstrual experience.
Low-income Michigan residents who enrolled in a new state health insurance plan didn't just get coverage for their health needs -- many also got a boost in their financial health, according to a new study. People who gained coverage under the state's expanded Medicaid program have experienced fewer debt problems and other financial issues than they had before enrollment, the analysis of thousands of individuals shows.
A new study on the quality of online responsible marijuana vendor for cannabis (RMV) training has just been released. The study used an online RMV training that was developed in consultation with state regulators, store personnel, and local law enforcement in Colorado and Washington state. The training focused on knowledge of state statutes and regulations, ID checking, the health effects of marijuana, customer service practices (including recognizing intoxicated patrons), and rules of the trade.
Undocumented immigrants have the worst rates of health care utilization and access, numbers that are worse than 15 years ago and are likely to continue their downward trend. However, they have lower risk of chronic disease than other immigrants and U.S. citizens.
Doctors and nurses are always grateful when they are given advance notice that a patient is about to seriously deteriorate (or 'crash,' to use today's clinical vernacular). Recent years have seen important advances towards this goal in the form of what are known as 'Clinical Early Warning Scores.'
The development, manufacture and sale of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States is a complex landscape of intellectual property and federal regulation. The status quo of the US pharmaceutical market may soon be turned on its head. That's due in part to a growing community of do-it-yourself 'biohackers' who are disrupting business-as-usual for pharmaceutical discovery, development and distribution.
Nearly 2.3 million times last year, Americans learned they had a sexually transmitted disease. But despite these record-high infection rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea, most patients only receive treatment for their own infection -- when they probably could get antibiotics or a prescription for their partner at the same time. A team of physicians looks at the barriers that stand in the way of getting expedited partner therapy to more people.
