But a study published in the Might 24, 2010, Archives of Internal Medicine found that using techniques similar to those employed by pharmaceutical sales reps can help persuade doctors to follow the rules. Like drug product sales representatives, researchers in the study met with small groups of doctors, opinion leaders especially. They detailed suggestions for dealing with high blood circulation pressure, and passed out studies, news letters, pocket cards, exam area posters, etc. An examination of prescribing patterns found that this technique, referred to as educational detailing, influenced what medications doctors prescribed.Samples were taken weekly during being pregnant and for a calendar year after birth monthly. Fifteen of the women delivered prematurely. Those that gave birth prematurely were much more likely to have had greater bacterial diversity in the vagina, the study found. Women were especially likely to give birth if indeed they had this pattern of bacteria for several weeks prematurely. In some cases, the diverse germ community existed relatively early during pregnancy, DiGiulio said. ‘That is important because for over half of pregnant women who develop spontaneous preterm birth, we’re never in a position to predict that their baby will be born prematurely or to determine in retrospect why that happened,’ he said.
