Restrictive abortion laws in Northern Ireland affect women's health, study shows

(University of Texas at Austin) Despite a policy change to provide free abortion services for women traveling from Northern Ireland to clinics in Great Britain, Northern Irish women still experience multiple barriers accessing care. The study also found that some women preferred to use medication from online telemedicine services to self-manage their own abortions at home, but that the experience is dominated by fear and isolation due to the risk of prosecution.

CONCLUSION: In agreement with the patient, medical care should focus on a pain-free situation during the last phase of life and not on exhausting possible treatments to prolong life unnecessarily. Appropriate care at the end of life can be broader, and all 34 subthemes can be important in early healthcare planning. Significant differences between general practitioners and nurses deserve attention because patients and family members expect that healthcare providers will work together as a team.

CONCLUSION: Our findings demonstrate feasibility and preliminary efficacy for this brief video-delivered relaxation intervention and suggest that older adults can benefit from technology-delivered interventions with minimal provider contact. Although activity engagement did not improve, lessons learned suggest that targeted coaching around activity goals may help target this outcome. PMID: 30765288 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 16 February 2019Source: Microbiological ResearchAuthor(s): Kavleen Kaur, Aarjoo Sharma, Neena Capalash, Prince SharmaAbstractThe acquisition of metal ions such as iron, copper and manganese is essential for the survival of microorganisms as these are constituents of metalloproteins including enzymes, storage proteins, structural elements, transcription factors and antimicrobial factors in various biological processes. However, excess of these metal ions is associated with significant toxicity due to spontaneous redox cycling of ions and obstruction of normal metabolic pathways. To overcom...
