You will find articles on a multi-national perinatal morbidity and mortality outcomes study among pregnant women with and without COVID-19, innovative models to predict suicide attempts in mental health patients, and papers that identify themes and gaps associated with patient deterioration within older adult care homes and for in-patient care physicians.
