Objectives: Whether the lower Dutch cervical cancer (CC) screening participation of Turkish- and Moroccan-Dutch women is based on informed decision-making is unknown. Our aim was to explore how and why Turkish- and Moroccan-Dutch women decide to participate or not in the current Dutch CC screening programme as well as to learn their perceptions...

The Newborn Blood Spot screening programme (NBS) was introduced in the Netherlands in 1974. The programme is coordinated by the Centre for Population Screening (CvB) of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). The aim of the NBS is the early detection of a number of serious congenital diseases in newborns. Children...

The majority of people living with a common mental disorder are employed, but many are at greater risk of job loss and permanent labor market exclusion than colleagues without these problems (OECD; Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, 2012). In addition, the costs of mental ill-health for society are large, reaching 3;4.5% of...

Implementing climate and energy targets will require coordinated global action inmany domains, including capacity building, institutional strengthening, and arguably most importantly financing. Transitioning to clean energy will require cumulative investments of trillions of US dollars globally (IEA, 2014, 2017; IFC, 2016; NCE, 2016). Average...

Background: Prenatal exposure to organophosphate (OP) pesticides associate with impaired neurodevelopment in humans and animal models. However, much uncertainty exists about the brain structural alterations underlying these associations. The objective of this study was to determine whether maternal OP pesticide metabolite concentrations in urine...

Background: The maternity care system in the Netherlands is well known for its support of community-based midwifery. However, regular midwifery practices typically do not offer caseload midwifery care - one-to-one continuity of care throughout pregnancy and birth. Because we know very little about the outcomes for women receiving caseload care...

Objectives. Weight loss is a key element in the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D), but also a risk factor for lean mass (LM) loss in older adults. We evaluated whether a whey protein drink enriched with leucine and vitamin D preserved LM during 3-month lifestyle intervention and whether effects sustained during 6 months follow-up...

Objective: Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is defined as thyroid hormone deficiency at birth due to disorders of the thyroid gland (thyroidal CH, CH-T), or the hypothalamus or pituitary (central CH, CH-C). The Dutch Newborn Screening (NBS) strategy is primarily based on determination of thyroxine (T4) concentrations in dried blood spots followed,...

Young children rely on their parents with respect to oral health routines. However, parental knowledge on this topic is often insufficient. Well-child care may be an excellent route to reach parents because almost all of them attend. To evaluate the effectiveness of an 8.5 min web-based film about oral health, provided by well-child care, a non...

Given that it appears that the ‘intelligent lockdown’ is gradually being eased, more and more attention is being paid to a ‘restart’, with the question being: how can the Dutch economy emerge from the coronavirus crisis stronger? Our neighbours to the east have actually been increasing investments in innovation since the banking crisis in 2008....

Targets that are well camouflaged under static conditions are often easily detected as soon as they start moving. We investigated and evaluated ways to design camouflage that dynamically adapts to the background and conceals the target while taking the variation in potential viewing directions into account. In a human observer experiment...

In order to make the transition to a low-carbon energy system, sustainable energy sources are required as alternatives for fossil fuels. The heating and cooling sector is of major importance for the final energy consumption in Europe, and therefore the deployment of the thermal energy sector could be a good contribution to a sustainable energy...

BACKGROUND: Prenatal exposures to phthalates and bisphenols are associated with impaired brain development in animals. However, epidemiological studies investigating the association between prenatal phthalate or bisphenol exposure and cognition have produced mixed findings and mostly had modest sample sizes and measured the exposure during the...
