However, not everyone who has these experiences also goes on to experience homelessness. This review is interested (...) facilities, and mental illness requiring hospitalisation. Homeless people have also been found to be over-represented among chronic users of emergency departments and commonly, they have had failed tenancies in both the private and social housing sectors. However, not all people with these histories experience homelessness. This Evidence Check aims to synthesise the knowledge about ‘who’ among these at-risk populations is likely to become homeless and the type of models or interventions shown

stimulants, for example Ritalin® (methylphenidate) or Adderall® (amphetamine), are often used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, 2016a). Prescription stimulants used as prescribed can be of significant benefit to those who need them.

Among Canadian post-secondary students past-year prevalence use is approximately 4–6%. ? Post-secondary students who perceive prescription stimulants as less harmful are more likely to report non-medical use. ? The most common reported motivation for non-medical prescription stimulant use among post-secondary students is for academic enhancement, despite research to suggest that those who do use

However, the true current incidence (...) of hemorrhage-related mortality ( ). The prevalence of ectopic pregnancy among women presenting to an emergency department with first-trimester vaginal bleeding, or abdominal pain, or both, has been reported to be as high as 18% ( ). Etiology The fallopian tube is the most common location of ectopic implantation, accounting for more than 90% of cases ( ). However, implantation in the abdomen (1%), cervix (1%), ovary (1–3%), and cesarean scar (1–3%) can occur and often results in greater morbidity because
