Ukraine steels itself for winter as Novorossiya forges ahead

Ukraine steels itself for winter as Novorossiya forges ahead
Description
Written by Professor Stefan Wolff and Professor Tatyana Malyarenko (Professor of Public Administration at Donetsk State Management University). The EU-Asia Summit in Milan, Italy, delivered little, if any, tangible progress to resolve the crisis in Ukraine.

Patient-reported outcomes: the heart of healthcare research?

Description
The moment a patient is recruited to participate in a clinical trial, we start to collect data. Much of this data derives from the information that only patients can give, that we cannot acquire through any test or scan. Are they experiencing pain? What are the side effects? These important insights are captured in a trial using PROs (patient-reported outcomes).
