  • Severity
  • We investigated the contribution that the three components of the RISC ( concern , its severity , and the ability of the caregiver network to manage concern) make to the accuracy of the instrument, across its three domains (mental state, activities of daily living (ADL), and medical state), by comparing their accuracy to other assessment instruments in the prospective Community Assessment of Risk and Treatment Strategies study.

  • patient
  • In these analyses, the patient-given global rating served as the dependent variable, and experiences regarding structure (waiting times, continuity of care), process (doctor-patient communication and information) and outcome aspects (improvement or worsening of symptoms) served as independent variables. (bmj.com)
  • The patient groups did not differ with respect to the type of quality aspects that most predicted the overall assessment. (bmj.com)
  • T-tests showed that the intervention program increased understanding of patient mental health, assisted in decisions about medication/referral and helped in diagnosis when compared to the attention-comparison program. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Mixed model analysis showed no differences in GP-patient rapport nor in pathways to care. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The importance of selecting an appropriate patient-reported outcome measure is specifically emphasised in the paediatric population. (cambridge.org)
  • The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of eliminating traditional resident work shifts (i.e. greater than 24 hours in length) on patient safety and resident educational outcomes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The primary outcome is the rate of preventable adverse events per 1000 patient days. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • For example, the difference in level of direct involvement in patient care activities (writing notes, performing procedures, etc) between the two schedules. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Technically, the patient will be blinded (by virtue of illness), and in any case knowledge of the feeding intervention they are receiving would not influence outcome. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Unfortunately, the introduction of new technologies and devices is not a benign process, and even subtle changes to existing implants can have a disastrous effect on patient outcome. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Evaluation of a Patient-Specific Index as an outcome measure for physiotherapy in Parkinson's disease. (biomedsearch.com)
  • disease
  • Low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) bear nearly 90% of the global burden of disease 1 , 2 and yet have severe shortages of trained healthcare providers. (bmj.com)
  • quality of l
  • In addition, long-term improvements in health-related quality of life and physical activity levels may result in these ICU survivors once they are back in the community. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The symptoms of pain, morning stiffness of short duration and physical dysfunction in the activities of daily living (ADL) can have an effect on many aspects of health, affecting quality of life. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Findings
  • Findings are published in scientific publications and educational monographs, as well as videotapes that have been distributed to health programs in colleges throughout the United States. (northeastern.edu)
  • From these findings, we developed a new intervention for improving staff interactions and information exchange in long term care settings. (duke.edu)

  • better
  • To better understand how to impute within-arm correlation for meta-analyses of continuous outcomes when data are missing, this study describes the range of correlation values in a representative set of studies with sufficient data reported, and simulates the effect of using different correlation values on meta-analysis summary estimates when imputing missing data. (ahrq.gov)
  • First, caregivers who participate in the intervention group will demonstrate better outcomes than caregivers in the control group. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Second, children with SCI whose caregivers participate in the intervention group will demonstrate better outcomes than children with SCI whose caregivers participate in the control group. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Preterm prelabour rupture of the membranes before 28 weeks: better than feared outcome of expectant management in Africa. (biomedsearch.com)
  • impact
  • Innovative medical technologies are included in one of six essential building blocks of the WHO Health System Framework 3 , 4 and can have particular impact in LMICs. (bmj.com)
  • My research program is concerned with understanding and improving nursing management practices and their impact on outcomes, with a particular interest in resident outcomes in nursing homes. (duke.edu)
  • Control group analyses demonstrated that the environmental impact on outcome was independent of hospital-wide or regional improvement efforts. (biomedsearch.com)
  • risk
  • The Risk Instrument for Screening in the Community (RISC) is a short, global risk assessment to identify community-dwelling older adults' one-year risk of institutionalisation, hospitalisation, and death. (hindawi.com)
  • No subtest or assessment instrument accurately predicted risk of hospitalisation. (hindawi.com)
  • Few have targeted risk of institutionalisation, an important marker of healthcare utilisation [ 11 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • I used a risk-adjusted cumulative sum (CUSUM) model to compare observed outcomes with predicted outcomes according to a validated scoring system and to analyze outcomes with adjusting for risk on a case-by-case basis. (biomedsearch.com)
  • intervention group
  • GPs identified and referred eligible participants (those with mild or more mental health concerns) who were randomly assigned to either the intervention group (where mood, stress and daily activities were monitored) or the attention-comparison group (where only daily activities were monitored). (biomedcentral.com)
  • The intervention group will participate in the 2-day, in-person Parent Forum and receive monthly phone calls from a mental health professional for 12 months. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • studies
  • It is common that studies do not report sufficient data to allow meta-analysis of continuous outcomes. (ahrq.gov)
  • The inclusion criteria applied for this review were: quantitative studies, inclusion of at least 20 study subjects, existence of a control and performed in healthcare settings including nursing homes and home care. (diva-portal.org)
  • OBJECTIVE: In this review, we focus on studies that examined such prognostic indices in relation to predicting a fatal outcome from pancreatitis. (biomedsearch.com)
  • mood
  • The mobiletype program is a mobile phone mental health assessment and management application which monitors mood, stress and everyday activities then transmits this information to general practitioners (GPs) via a secure website in summary format for medical review. (biomedcentral.com)
  • symptoms
  • Barriers to detecting mental health problems include lack of screening tools, limited appointment times and young people's reluctance to report mental health symptoms to GPs. (biomedcentral.com)
