Novi, Silvana; Gjoni, Maksim; Mersini, Ehadu; Burazeri, Genc; Tushe, Eduard ( 2012-12-01 )
AIM: The aim of the adoption process of the "Quality of hospital care for mothers and newborns babies, assessment tool" (WHO, 2009) was to provide the Albanian health professionals of maternity hospitals with a tool that may help them assess the quality of perinatal care and identify key areas of pregnancy, childbirth and newborn care that need to be improved. METHODS: Four maternity hospitals (one university hospital and three regional hospitals) were selected for the assessment using this standard tool covering over 600 items grouped into 13 areas ranging from supportive services to case management. Sources of information consisted of site visits, hospital statistics, medical records, observation of cases and interviews with staff and patients. A score was assigned to each item (range 0-3) and area of care. The assessments were carried out in two rounds: in 2009 and in 2011. These assessments provided semi-quantitative data on the quality of hospital care for mothers and newborns. RESULTS: Data collected on the first round established a baseline assessment, whereas the second round monitored the subsequent changes. The findings of the second round revealed improvements encountered in all maternities, notwithstanding differences in the levels of improvement between maternities, not necessarily linked with extra financial inputs. CONCLUSIONS: The Albanian experience indicates a successful process of the adoption of the WHO tool on the quality of hospital care for mothers and newborn babies. The adopted tool can be used country-wide as a component of a quality improvement strategy in perinatal health care in Albania.

Adult oncology and chronically ill patients: comparison of depression, anxiety and caregiver's quality of life
Sherif, T.; Jehani, T.; Saadani, M.; Andejani, A.W. ( 2001 )
A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating for patients and their loved ones. We compared the intensity of anxiety and depression for 30 terminally ill cancer patients and 30 chronically ill patients and the quality of life of their most attendant caregivers. Hamilton depression and anxiety scales were used with the patients and the quality of life scale [family] was used with the caregivers. Cancer patients and their caregivers had significantly higher scores on these scales and suffered more from depression and anxiety than chronically ill patients and caregivers. Cancer patient caregivers also had poorer quality of life than did caregivers of the chronically ill

Advance supply of emergency contraception: a systematic review
Curtis, Kathryn M; Kapp, Nathalie; Rodriguez, Maria I; Jackson, Emily; Gaffield, Mary Lyn ( 2012-10-04 )
BACKGROUND: Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) are an underutilized means to reduce unintended pregnancy. Advance provision of ECPs may increase timely use, thereby decreasing risk of unintended pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN: We searched MEDLINE and EMBASE through February 2012 for randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) pertaining to safety and efficacy of advance provision of ECP. The quality of each individual study was evaluated using the United States Preventive Services Task Force evidence grading system. RESULTS: The search strategy identified 714 articles. Seventeen papers reported on safety or efficacy of advance ECPs in adult or adolescent women. Any use of ECPs was two to seven times greater among women who received an advanced supply of ECP. However, a summary estimate (RR 0.90, 95% CI 0.69-1.18) of four RCTs did not demonstrate a significant reduction in unintended pregnancy over 12 months when advance provision was compared with standard provision of ECPs. Patterns of contraceptive use, pregnancy rates and incidence of sexually transmitted infections did not vary between treatment and control groups in the majority of studies among either adults or adolescents. CONCLUSION: Available evidence supports the safety of advance provision of ECPs. Efficacy of advance provision compared with standard provision of ECPs in reducing unintended pregnancy rates at the population level has not been demonstrated.
Advanced maternal age and pregnancy outcome
Amarin, V.N.; Akasheh, H.F. ( 2001 )
To assess the effect of maternal age on obstetric intervention and pregnancy outcome, a retrospective study compared obstetric intervention, pregnancy complications and outcome in 73 women of age > 35 years with 471 women of age 20-25 years attending Prince Ali Military Hospital, Jordan from June 1999 to May 2000. Older women were found to have significantly higher rates of medical complications such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus. Despite significantly increased frequency of large babies, trisomy 21, twin pregnancy and antepartum haemorrhage, overall outcome was satisfactory. We conclude that older women, managed by modern obstetric methods and delivered in a modern health-care centre, can expect good pregnancy outcomes
