      A paradigm shift is occurring in the definition of health and therefore also in the determinants of health. Social determinants of health, considered by many to be the premises of good health and a purposeful life, are now the focus of attention in determinants of health. These determinants of health bring attention to the conditions in which people are born and live and work. This article proposes that indicators of healthy work environments in nursing can be identified as determinants of health. Study findings from around the world confirm that the health and well-being of nurses and their patients is related to nurses' work and work environments. Therefore, the working lives of nurses should be identified as an inseparable part of their personal lives, leading to consideration of work environments and thereby the quality of nurse's work lives as determinants of health in the 21st century.

      Parents and health staff perceive hen's egg allergy (HEA) as a common food allergy in early childhood, but the true incidence is unclear because population-based studies with gold-standard diagnostic criteria are lacking.

    • Is there a future for obstetrics? NFYOG addresses the challenges ahead for trainees [editorial].

      Hauksdottir, Dögg; Oppegaard, Kevin Sunde (Blackwell Munksgaard, 2007-08-22)
      The Nordic Federation of Young Obstetricians and Gynecologists (NFYOG) was founded during the NFOG congress in Oslo in 2000. The initial members were a contingent of enthusiastic trainees from Denmark, Norway and Sweden who had noticed the lack of a Nordic collaboration of trainees and young specialists. This was made apparant in Rome the year before at a rather chaotic meeting for European trainees (ENTOG). With NFYOG it would not only be possible for the Nordic countries to present a coherent front at European meetings, but also for Nordic countries to gain inspiration from each other and exchange experiences in matters regarding training. Finding members was not a problem; each country has their national societies, so representatives from these joined NFYOG to form the first board. Funding was secured from the parent organisation NFOG and from the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk. To start with ambitions ran to having a session for trainees at the biannual NFOG congress. It was decided that the topic for the first session at the NFOG congress in Umea° in 2002 would be ‘Surgical training for everybody?’ This resulted in a lively discussion forum for 40 trainees and was judged to be a success. In January 2004 in Malmo¨ the first seminar organised by NFYOG was held, devoted to obstetrical and gynecological education. The following May another seminar was held on leadership for doctors. Both of these seminars received enthusiastic feedback from the participants and NFYOG decided that the board’s main focus would be a biannual seminar alternating with the NFOG congress. These seminars would be a valuable forum for Nordic trainees and an introduction to NFOG.
    • Lessons learnt from anonymized review of cases of peripartum hysterectomy by international experts: A qualitative pilot study.

      Jónasdóttir, Eva; Aabakke, Anna J M; Colmorn, Lotte B; Jakobsson, Maija; Äyräs, Outi; Baghestan, Elham; Svanvik, Teresia; van den Akker, Thomas; Bloemenkamp, Kitty; van Roosmalen, Jos; et al. (Wiley, 2019-08)
      Severe obstetric complications are not extensively studied and individual cases are used too little and inappropriately in quality improvement activities, due to limited numbers and prioritization of quantitative research. Nordic and European experts performed a qualitative pilot study using anonymized cases of peripartum hysterectomy. It was feasible to anonymize narratives and we learned lessons in the form of themes for improved clinical care and future research. Therefore, we plan a Nordic anonymized review of the care of women who have undergone peripartum hysterectomy based on narratives. The qualitative outcomes of clinically relevant themes for quality improvement and research will add value to the quantitative analyses from the Nordic medical birth registries. In the longer term, we believe that qualitative audits should be an essential part of the process of continuing improvement in maternity care.
