Health Care Reform And Women: A Comparison Of The ACA And The AHCA
By Susan Blumenthal, M.D. and Alexandrea Adams The recent commemoration of National Women’s Health Week provided an important time to mark the progress that has been made in advancing women’s health over the past two decades and to highlight what more needs to be done to achieve women’s health equity in America. Historically, women have experienced discrimination in health care despite making 80 percent of health care decisions for their families, using more medical services than men, and suffering greater disability from chronic disease. Before the mid 1990’s, women were often excluded as subjects ...

Conclusion This randomised controlled trial assessed high dose supplementation with vitamin D for a period of 12 months as a way of preventing acute respiratory infections in older adults in long term care. This study was well designed and reduced risk of bias where possible. However, there are some important limitations which affect the reliability of the findings: The study has a small sample size and the authors state they did not manage to reach their target recruitment level; this means the study did not have the statistical power required for certainty in the findings. There were some differences in the character...

Interviewing 102: Making a Match that Will Last

A truly good interview is rather a step in the process of making the best possible match. As you’ve likely heard before, a large percentage of EP’s stay in their first job less than two years.

Each year, approximately 700,000 people die from drug-resistant bacterial infections. A study by UCLA life scientists could be a major step toward combating drug-resistant infections. The research, reported in the journal Royal Society Interface, found that combinations of three different antibiotics can often overcome bacteria’s resistance to antibiotics, even when none of the three antibiotics on their own — or even two of the three together — is effective. The researchers grew E. coli bacteria in a laboratory and treated the samples with combinations of one, two and three antibiotics from a g...
