Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) can be used to accurately detect fetal chromosomal anomalies early in pregnancy by assessing cell-free fetal DNA present in maternal blood. The rapid diffusion of NIPT, as well as the ease and simplicity of the test raises concerns around informed decision-making and the potential for routinization. Introducing NIPT in a way that facilitates informed and autonomous decisions is imperative to the ethical application of this technology. We approach this imperat...

However, little is known about the factors that influence the use of research evidence in the policy development in humanitarian crises. We examined how research evidence was used to inform two humanitarian policies made in response to the Syrian refugee crisis...

Background: We provide an examination of one medical school’s attempt to determine whether their cut-off point for number of interviews offered is congruent with the probability these applicants’ have for admission post-interview. Methods: Offer probability was determined by organizing pre-interview rankings from 2013-2017 (n = 2,659) applicant cohorts into bins of 50 applicants and finding the quotient of successful and total applicants in each bin.A linear-by-linear association Chi-square test...

Objectives Previous European data found that excess first trimester (T1) gestational weight gain (GWG) predicted total excess GWG. Our objective was to determine whether excess T1 GWG predicts total excess GWG, stratified by prepregnancy BMI for normal weight, overweight and obese Canadian women. Methods English-speaking women with a singleton pregnancy between 8+0 and 21+6 weeks were recruited from 12 obstetrical, family medicine and midwifery centres across Ontario. Excess weight gain (>2.0 kg...
