The Daily Mile is designed to increase physical activity levels with children running or walking around school grounds for 15-min daily. It has been adopted by schools worldwide and endorsed as a solution to tackle obesity, despite no robust evidence of its benefits. We conducted a cluster randomised controlled trial to determine its clinical and cost-effectiveness. Forty schools were randomly assigned (1:1) to either the Daily Mile intervention or control group in which only the usual school he...

Stepped-wedge cluster randomized trials (SW-CRTs) are increasingly popular in health-related research in both high- and low-resource settings. There may be specific ethical issues that researchers face when designing and conducting SW-CRTs in low-resource settings. Knowledge of these issues can help to improve the ethical conduct of SW-CRTs in a global health context. We performed an ethical analysis of two studies using SW-CRT designs in low-resource settings: the Que Vivan Las Madres study con...

Background In countries undergoing rapid economic transition such as China, rates of increase in childhood obesity exceed that in the West. However, prevention trials in these countries are inadequate in both quantity and methodological quality. In high-income countries, recent reviews have demonstrated that school-based prevention interventions are moderately effective but have some methodological limitations. To address these issues, this study evaluated clinical- and cost- effectiveness of th...

Introduction: Weaning from ventilation is a complex process involving several stages that include recognition of patient readiness to begin the weaning process; steps to reduce ventilation while optimising sedation in order not to induce distress; and removing the endotracheal tube. Delay at any stage can prolong the duration of mechanical ventilation. We developed a multi-component intervention targeted at helping clinicians to safely expedite this process and minimise the harms associated with...

Introduction Two-thirds of maternal deaths and 40% of intrapartum-related neonatal deaths are thought to be preventable through emergency obstetric and newborn care (EmOC&NC). The effectiveness of ‘skills and drills’ training of maternity staff in EmOC&NC was evaluated. Methods Implementation research using a stepped wedge cluster randomised trial including 127 of 129 healthcare facilities (HCFs) across the 11 districts in South Africa with the highest maternal mortality. The sequence in which a...
