Bristol to improve signposting to specialist support for domestic violence and abuse in UK military families
Bristol to improve signposting to specialist support for domestic violence and abuse in UK military families
The University of Bristol has been awarded a grant of £46,938 by the Forces in Mind Trust for a 15-month study to investigate domestic violence and abuse (DVA) in UK military families. The research will investigate what criteria might constitute specialist DVA provision for this group, and what service providers, if any, already meet these criteria, in order to help improve signposting to the service providers best placed to meet the needs of UK military families suffering DVA.

Bowel scope cuts cancer risk for at least 17 years
Bowel scope cuts cancer risk for at least 17 years
A one-off screening test reduces the risk of developing bowel cancer by more than one third and could save thousands of lives, a study has found. Researchers based at Imperial College London found that the test - which examines the lower part of the large bowel - prevented more than half of potential bowel cancers from developing in that area and two thirds of deaths were avoided.

Better health for women involved in clinical trials
Better health for women involved in clinical trials
Women who participate in obstetric and gynaecology clinical trials experience improved health outcomes compared to those who are not involved in trials, according to research by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). This is the case regardless of whether or not the treatment is found to be effective in the trial.

Heat from Earth’s core could be underlying force in plate tectonics
Researchers find the East Pacific Rise is dynamic as heat is transferred, showing that plate dynamics are driven significantly by additional force of heat drawn from Earth's core. For decades, scientists have theorized that the movement of Earth's tectonic plates is driven largely by negative buoyancy created as they cool.

Crowdfunding expands innovation financing to underserved regions
Crowdfunding expands innovation financing to underserved regions
Crowdfunding platforms, such as Kickstarter, have opened a funding spigot to startups in regions that have suffered from a venture capital drought, a new UC Berkeley study shows. Historically, funding for innovation has come from venture capitalists, which tend to fund entrepreneurs that often mirror the investors in terms of their educational, social and professional characteristics.

Risk of long-term disability in older adults who visit the ED
Risk of long-term disability in older adults who visit the ED
Older adults who go to the emergency department (ED) for an illness or injury are at increased risk for disability and decline in physical abilities up to six months later, according to a study by Yale researchers. The study was published on Jan. 6, 2017, in the Annals of Emergency Medicine. Most adults aged 65 and older who visit the emergency department each year are treated and sent home.
