Leucorrhea is a major gynaecological disorder that impacts women in both aspects, mentally and physically. The coriander seeds, water is used as a non-pharmacological approach to reduce the clinical symptoms of Leucorrhea. The present study aims to determine the effectiveness of coriander seeds soaking water among women with Leucorrhea. A total of 30 samples were collected using the purposive sampling technique and women with symptoms of Leucorrhea were used as samples. The demographic data and clinical variables were collected from the samples, followed by pretest were conducted by using standardized Leucorrhea assessment scale and numerical itching scale. After a period of intervention with coriander seeds water. Post-test was done by using the same Leucorrhea assessment scale. The study depicts that the pretest mean score of symptoms was 21.53 with a standard deviation of 5.34 and the posttest mean score of symptoms was 17.83 with a standard deviation of 3.96. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t = 3.022 was found to be statistically significant at p < 0.01 level. It also depicts that the pretest mean score of itching was 6.23 with a standard deviation of 2.61 and the posttest mean score of symptoms was 4.27 with a standard deviation of 1.74. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t = 3.079 was found to be statistically significant at p < 0.01 level. This infers that there was significant improvement was observed that coriander seeds, water on Leucorrhea were found to be effective in reducing the level of symptoms and itching among women with Leucorrhea

Abstract Background Lack of proper and timely patients' access to speech pathologists can affect the treatment and follow-up process; therefore, patients do not achieve the expected therapeutic goals. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of tele-rehabilitation on the stuttering patients using the goal attainment scaling (GAS). Methods This interventional study was carried out on patients who visited the rehabilitation centers affiliated to the Jahrom Welfare Office. They underwent remote speech therapy using Skype. To evaluate the treatment outcomes of the stuttering patients, GAS was used. Results The participants' speech and lingual skills improved using videoconferencing. The mean score of total GAS for patients was 53.08. Of 112 health goals, patients reached the expected or higher than expected levels in 78 goals. Conclusions Rehabilitation through video conferencing was effective for patients with stuttering, improved their speech, and decreased their stuttering. Since, application of remote rehabilitation services can provide regular access to healthcare services, it can lead to improving patient treatment provide more frequent and faster treatment follow-up.

To objective of this project was to reduce unplanned hospital admission rates in children related to asthma to the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals National Health Service Trust (NUTH).Multiple educational interventions were introduced both locally and regionally including: a collection of educational materials aimed at young people and families, schools, primary care and secondary care on the website www.beatasthma.co.uk; regional training days; a nurse-led one-stop clinic; a new pathway following an acute attendance to hospital with an asthma attack; a local asthma service and cascade training for schools.The primary outcome measure was reduction in unplanned hospital admission rates in children due to asthma to the NUTH.Results showed that admission rates had been increasing at a sustained rate of approximately 30% each year in the 3 years prior to our intervention. After the Beating Regional Asthma Through Health Education interventions, unplanned admissions to NUTH reduced by 29% and this reduction has been sustained for the last 3 years. This compares with a regional increase of 10% over the same time period.In conclusion, simple but effective educational interventions resulted in a significant and sustained reduction in unplanned asthma admissions to NUTH. Further work is underway to extend the reach of these interventions into primary care and schools.

Objective: The purpose of the study was to analyze the effect of clinical pharmacist intervention on glycemic control based on fasting blood glucose and glycosylated blood glucose level.  Methods: A randomized prospective interventional study was conducted in the outpatient department of a tertiary care hospital. Patients suffering from diabetes for a least 2 y were selected for the study based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The control group was not given any special pharmacist care, while the interventional group had a face-to-face interview, counseling, and telephonic follow-up during the study period. Based on the baseline values and endpoint parametric values, the result of the study was analyzed.  Results: The study was analyzed based on the difference in the glycemic index, using HbA1c and FBS values. The basal values of HbA1c were similar for both groups (8.5%), but a marked reduction to 7.2% was observed in the interventional group. FBS values reduced from 208 mg/dl to 186 mg/dl in the intervention group, while in the usual care group, the reduction was from 211 mg/dl to 198 mg/dl. Conclusion: The inclusion of clinical pharmacists in the healthcare team can offer a remarkable improvement in patient's condition by providing more support in the therapy.

AbstractAllogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) remains a treatment option for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who fail to respond to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). While imatinib seems to have no adverse impact on outcomes after transplant, little is known on the effects of prior use of second-generation TKI (2GTKI). We present the results of a prospective non-interventional study performed by the EBMT on 383 consecutive CML patients previously treated with dasatinib or nilotinib undergoing allo-HCT from 2009 to 2013. The median age was 45 years (18–68). Disease status at transplant was CP1 in 139 patients (38%), AP or >CP1 in 163 (45%), and BC in 59 (16%). The choice of 2GTKI was: 40% dasatinib, 17% nilotinib, and 43% a sequential treatment of dasatinib and nilotinib with or without bosutinib/ponatinib. With a median follow-up of 37 months (1–77), 8% of patients developed either primary or secondary graft failure, 34% acute and 60% chronic GvHD. There were no differences in post-transplant complications between the three different 2GTKI subgroups. Non-relapse mortality was 18% and 24% at 12 months and at 5 years, respectively. Relapse incidence was 36%, overall survival 56% and relapse-free survival 40% at 5 years. No differences in post-transplant outcomes were found between the three different 2GTKI subgroups. This prospective study demonstrates the feasibility of allo-HCT in patients previously treated with 2GTKI with a post-transplant complications rate comparable to that of TKI-naive or imatinib-treated patients.
