Using network analysis to illuminate the intergenerational transmission of adversity

Chad Lance Hemady, Lydia Gabriela Speyer, Janell Kwok, Franziska Meinck, G.J. Melendez-Torres, Deborah Fry, Bonnie Auyeung & Aja Louise Murray
Objective: The effects of maternal exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) may be transmitted to subsequent generations through various biopsychosocial mechanisms. However, studies tend to focus on exploring one or two focal pathways with less attention paid to links between different pathways. Using a network approach, this paper explores a range of core prenatal risk factors that may link maternal ACEs to infant preterm birth (PTB) and low birthweight (LBW). Methods: We used data from...

Felipe, Ricardo García, José Luis Gómez Hechavarría, Aretha Franklin Guimarães, Ernesto Medina, Adrian L.D. Paul, Nishanta Rajakaruna, Carla Restrepo, Stefan Siebert, Eduardo Van Den Berg, Antony Van Der Ent & Grisel Velasquez
This is a compiled geospatial dataset in ESRI polygon shapefile format of ultramafic soils of the neotropics showing the location of ultramafic soils in Guatemala, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Suriname, French Guiana, and Bolivia. The data are derived from seven geospatial datasets. Original datasets were subset to include only ultramafic areas, datasets were assigned a common projection (WGS84), attribute tables were reconciled to a common set...

Different Instruments, Same Content? A Systematic Comparison of Child Maltreatment and Harsh Parenting Instruments

Sophia Backhaus, Patty Leijten, Franziska Meinck & Frances Gardner
Child maltreatment and harsh parenting both include harmful actions by parents toward children that are physical (e.g., spanking, slapping) or emotional (e.g., threatening, yelling). The distinction between these two constructs, in meaning and measurement, is often unclear, leading to inconsistent research and policy. This study systematically identified, reviewed, and compared parent-reported child maltreatment (N = 7) and harsh parenting (N = 18) instruments. The overlap in parenting behaviors was 73%. All physical behaviors that were...

Hospital managers’ views on the state of patient safety culture across three regions in Ghana

Immaculate Sabelile Tenza, Priscilla Y. A. Attafuah, Patience Abor, Edward Nketiah-Amponsah & Aaron Asibi Abuosi
Abstract Background Improving patient safety culture in healthcare organisations contributes positively to the quality of care and patients’ attitudes toward care. While hospital managers undoubtedly play critical roles in creating a patient safety culture, in Ghana, qualitative studies focussing on hospital managers’ views on the state of patient safety culture in their hospitals remain scanty. Objective This study aimed to explore the views of hospital managers regarding compliance to patient safety culture dimensions in the...

Development of the HARM model for aviation dosimetry

GODFREY MOSOTHO, Du Toit Strauss & R. R. Nndanganeni
Primary galactic cosmic-rays (GCRs) and Solar energetic particles (SEPs) enter the Earth's atmosphere in varying amounts. Due to that, the aircrew and passengers are exposed to ionizing radiation in amounts that depend on severable factors. At the top of the atmosphere and beyond, cosmic radiation is modulated by the geomagnetic field and solar activity. Once ionising radiation, albeit from either GCRs or SEPs, crosses the geomagnetic field and enters the atmosphere, it interacts with the...

Untitled ItemCaecal microbial communities, functional diversity, and metabolic pathways in Ross 308 broiler chickens fed with diets containing different levels of Marama (Tylosema esculentum) bean meal

Peter Kotsoana Montso, AYANSINA AYANGBENRO & Caven Mguvane Mnisi
The caecum of a chicken harbours complex microbial communities that play vital roles in feed digestion, nutrient absorption, and bird health. Understanding the caecal microbial communities could help improve feed utilisation efficiency and chicken product quality and, ultimately, deliver sustainable poultry production systems. Thus, this study assessed the caecal microbial communities and their functional diversity and metabolic pathways in broilers reared on diets containing different levels of marama (Tylosema esculentum) bean meal (MBM). A total...

Data from: Specific leaf area is lower on ultramafic than on neighbouring non-ultramafic soils

Catherine Hulshof, , Claudia Garnica-Díaz, Dena Grosseenbacher, George Adamidis, Panayiotis Dimitrakopoulos, Stefan Siebert, Marko Spasojevic & Nishanta Rajakaruna
These are datasets in csv format for ultramafic and non-ultramafic sampling sites where specific leaf area (SLA) was collected in five climatically diverse regions: Puerto Rico (tropical wet), Costa Rica (tropical dry), South Africa (subtropical), California and Lesbos (both with Mediterranean climate). The datasets include plant species level mean SLA values, regional coordinates, regional climate data, bioclimatic variables for individual sites, and a joined dataset that includes site level coordinates and climate variables. The R...
