Little was known about the development of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract microbiota, until recently, because of difficulties in obtaining sufficient sequence information from enough people or time points. Now, with decreased costs of DNA sequencing and improved bioinformatic tools, we can compare GI tract bacterial communities among individuals, of all ages from infancy to adulthood.

Communicating openly and honestly with patients and families about unexpected medical events-a policy known as full disclosure-improves outcomes for patients and providers. Although many certification and licensing organizations have declared full disclosure to be imperative, the adoption of and adherence to a full disclosure protocol is not common practice in most clinical settings. We conducted a case study of Ascension Health's implementation of a full disclosure protocol at five labor and delivery demonstration sites.

Zeitschrift Fur Geburtshilfe Und Neonatologie

BACKGROUND: Berlin offers a variety of delivery facilities: maternity clinics, birth centres, obstetrical practices and ambulant working midwives for the various options and kinds of delivery. To select an individual service is a difficult task for most women. In this process of decision-making the gynaecologist plays an important part. This raised the question as to how established gynaecologists appraise the available services, which delivery sites they recommend, and what criteria are decisive for their recommendation.

Revue D'epidemiologie Et De Sante Publique

BACKGROUND: In Morocco, the majority of maternal deaths and severe obstetrical complications occurs outside a health structure. If accessibility to a referral hospital is clearly a problem, this problem can be exacerbated by the perception that women and their family have of the quality of care received in these maternity services. The objective of this article is to explore how women who went through a severe obstetrical complication experienced their hospitalisation and to confront this experience with the caregivers'perception.
