LATEST POST ON THE EBA FORUM
Descriptive analyses suggested that combining acupuncture with other medicines can effectively improve the clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) and ovulation rate, and reduce luteinizing hormone/follicle-stimulating hormone ratio, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance, and body mass index (BMI). When compared with medicine alone, acupuncture alone also can improve CPR.
Further, when compared with no intervention, acupuncture had a better effect in promoting the recovery of menstrual cycle and reducing BMI. Acupuncture was reported to cause no adverse events or some adverse events without serious harm.

Effects of acupuncture and medical training therapy on depression, anxiety, and quality of life in patients with frequent tension-type headache
Acupuncture and the combination of acupuncture and medical training therapy elicit positive effects on depression, anxiety, quality of life, and symptom intensity in patients with episodic and chronic tension-type headache.
Acupuncture appears to play a central role in mediating the therapeutic effects, underscoring the clinical relevance of this treatment.
Leveraging Interprofessional Collaboration to Collect Agreed Common Outcomes in Everyday Clinical Practice
Research suggests that women are more likely to seek out complementary and alternative medicine, including acupuncture, and, therefore, are a good starting point for research priority areas.
Collecting consistent IPD across the lifespan would generate a massive longitudinal data set (with cross-sectional data opportunities as well).
We propose, to realize this direction, the development of a working group of a deliberately selected panel of experts in women’s health across the lifespan to participate in a Delphi consensus process.
Expert opinions, scholarly and clinical literature on the key issues which compose ‘pattern identification’ (PI) were identified with respect to the history, development, nature and the different strategies used by different PIs for diagnosing and treating patients.
This is the first in a series of papers by the international Pattern Identification Network Group (iPING) helping to clarify the area of research on PIs and which seek to expand lines of research on PIs so that teaching, practice, clinical and laboratory research can be more consequential.
