Scoping reviews

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are important studies that can help avoid research waste by synthesising existing evidence, from randomised controlled trials for example, before embarking on new and expensive studies [1]. However many systematic reviews fail to identify sufficient high quality studies to include and therefore effectiveness of an intervention cannot be established. These are often conducted in areas where a condition is prevalent. Systematic reviews with and without meta-analyses are published in most issues of Physiotherapy (e.g.

This study was part of ESPaCe, a national survey aimed at documenting the views of individuals with cerebral palsy and their families regarding MR services via a questionnaire, developed by a multidisciplinary group. The ESPaCe questionnaire included the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ-8), whose total score was the primary outcome of this study. Survey participation was promoted nation-wide. The questionnaire could be completed by the person with cerebral palsy or their main carer. Analysis included the description of determinants across CSQ-8 quartiles and generalised linear modelling of the CSQ-8 score.ResultsFrom...

Authors: Yu X, Wang J, Hou S, Zeng R Abstract Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis in pediatric patients is rare and may cause severe micrognathia and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. The present study reports on the treatment and 4-year follow-up of a pediatric patient with early-onset bilateral TMJ ankylosis and severe secondary micrognathia, as well as obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. A typical 'bird face' appearance was noted with severe mandible retrognathism and a significant convex facial profile. The treatment of this patient involved TMJ ankylosis release with condylectomy and simultaneous bilateral m...

Publication date: Available online 5 December 2019Source: Plant ScienceAuthor(s): Sangam L. Dwivedi, Frederick L. Stoddard, Rodomiro OrtizAbstractPhenotypic plasticity refers to changes expressed by a genotype across different environments and is one of the major means by which plants cope with environmental variability. Multi-fold differences in phenotypic plasticity have been noted across crops, with wild ancestors and landraces being more plastic than crops when under stress. Plasticity in response to abiotic stress adaptation, plant architecture, physio-reproductive and quality traits are multi-genic (QTL). Plasticity ...

Conclusion: Non-odontogenic toothaches may be multifactorial. The case presented emphasizes the importance of a comprehensive evaluation to differentiate odontogenic pain from non-odontogenic pain. Irreversible dental procedures should be instituted after an accurate diagnosis and multidisciplinary management may be required in complex cases.

It is a key part of NHS (National Health Service) England health care policy, and schemes based on the social prescribing model have been developed in countries including Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Singapore. In this chapter, we consider the role that social prescribing can play in reducing stress related problems and su...
