Data from 603,904 kindergarten pupils found that most children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) had teacher-reported home problems interfering with classroom functioning.

A better understanding of the characteristics of FASD may be an important starting point in improving the ability to early identify FASD in children and anticipate future needs, supports and services. Read more about the study: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32472249/

Applying the Involvement Matrix before and during different phases of a project has the potential to help researchers and patients to make clear agreements about research involvement and engagement of patients. Read more about the study: https://researchinvolvement.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40900-020-00188-4

Interest in patient involvement in research is growing. Research should rather be ‘with’ or ‘by’ patients, and not only be ‘about’ or ‘for’ patients. Patients’ active involvement in research is not self-evident and special efforts have to be made. If we make efforts towards patient...
