A performance-based lottery to improve residential care and training by institutional staff. (1/476)

Two experiments were conducted on four units of a residential facility for the multiply-handicapped retarded in an attempt to improve daily care and training services. Experiment I compared the effects of two procedures in maintaining the work performance of attendants, using an A-B design on two units. One procedure consisted of implementing specific staff-resident assignments, the other consisted of allowing attendants who had met performance criteria to be eligible for a weekly lottery in which they could win the opportunity to rearrange their days off for the following week. Results showed that the lottery was a more effective procedure as measured by the per cent of time attendants engaged in predefined target behaviors, and by their frequency of task completion in several areas of resident care. Experiment II replicated and extended these results to the area of work quality on two additional units, using a multiple-baseline design. The performance lottery was found to be an effective econimical procedure that could be implemented by supervisory staff on a large scale.  (+info)

Use of SoloShot autodestruct syringes compared with disposable syringes, in a national immunization campaign in Indonesia. (2/476)

Autodestruct syringes can reduce the improper reuse of syringes, which present a significant risk in the transmission of bloodborne pathogens in developing countries, especially during immunization campaigns owing to the high number of injections given per session. SoloShot is an autodestruct syringe, distributed by UNICEF, which has been shown to be safer and easier to use than standard syringes. This study analyses the accuracy and dose-efficiency of SoloShot, compared with disposable syringes, during a national tetanus toxoid immunization campaign on the Indonesian island of Lombok. Observation and dose measurements revealed that SoloShot syringes delivered more precise and consistent doses and 15% more doses per vial than disposable syringes. Vaccine savings may partially be offset by the higher price of SoloShot. Vaccinators preferred SoloShot, describing it as easier to use, faster, and more accurate than the disposable syringe. The study indicates that SoloShot is highly appropriate for use in immunization campaigns by reducing vaccine wastage and improving injection safety.  (+info)

Evaluation of technician supervised treadmill exercise testing in a cardiac chest pain clinic. (3/476)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy and safety of trained cardiac technicians independently performing treadmill exercise stress tests as part of the assessment of patients with suspected angina pectoris. DESIGN: Retrospective comparison of 250 exercise tests performed by cardiac technicians and 225 tests performed by experienced cardiology clinical assistants (general practitioners who perform regular NHS cardiology duties), and consultant cardiologists over the same time period. SETTING: Regional cardiac centre with a dedicated cardiac chest pain clinic. PATIENTS: All patients were referred by their general practitioners with a history of recent onset of chest pain, which was suspected to be angina pectoris. OUTCOME MEASURES: Peak workload achieved, symptoms, indications for termination, complications. RESULTS: The diagnostic yield of technician supervised tests (percentage positive or negative) was similar to that of medically supervised tests (76% v 69%, NS). The average peak workload achieved by patients was less by 1.2 mets (p < 0.005). This was probably due to more tests being terminated earlier due to chest pain and ST segment depression in the technician group compared with doctors (10% and 16% v 5% and 11% respectively, p = 0.06 and 0.07). One patient in the technician supervised group developed a supraventricular tachycardia during the recovery phase of the exercise test. CONCLUSIONS: Technician supervised stress testing is associated with a high diagnostic rate and low complication rate in patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease. Its efficacy is comparable to tests supervised by experienced doctors and its use should be encouraged.  (+info)

Primary health care, community participation and community-financing: experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal. (4/476)

Although community involvement in health related activities is generally acknowledged by international and national health planners to be the key to the successful organization of primary health care, comparatively little is known about its potential and limitations. Drawing on the experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal, this paper reports on research undertaken to compare and contrast the scope and extent of community participation in the delivery of primary health care in a community run and financed health post and a state run and financed health post. Unlike many other health posts in Nepal these facilities do provide effective curative services, and neither of them suffer from chronic shortage of drugs. However, community-financing did not appear to widen the scope and the extent of participation. Villagers in both communities relied on the health post for the treatment of less than one-third of symptoms, and despite the planners' intentions, community involvement outside participation in benefits was found to be very limited.  (+info)

Resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: is survival dependent on who is available at the scene? (5/476)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is influenced by the on-scene availability of different grades of ambulance personnel and other health professionals. DESIGN: Population based, retrospective, observational study. SETTING: County of Nottinghamshire with a population of one million. SUBJECTS: All 2094 patients who had resuscitation attempted by Nottinghamshire Ambulance Service crew from 1991 to 1994; study of 1547 patients whose arrest were of cardiac aetiology. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Survival to hospital admission and survival to hospital discharge. RESULTS: Overall survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains poor: 221 patients (14.3%) survived to reach hospital alive and only 94 (6.1%) survived to be discharged from hospital. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the chances of those resuscitated by technician crew reaching hospital alive were poor but were greater when paramedic crew were either called to assist technicians or dealt with the arrest themselves (odds ratio 6.9 (95% confidence interval 3.92 to 26.61)). Compared to technician crew, survival to hospital discharge was only significantly improved with paramedic crew (3.55 (1.62 to 7.79)) and further improved when paramedics were assisted by either a health professional (9.91 (3.12 to 26.61)) or a medical practitioner (20.88 (6.72 to 64.94)). CONCLUSIONS: Survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains poor despite attendance at the scene of the arrest by ambulance crew and other health professionals. Patients resuscitated by a paramedic from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest caused by cardiac disease were more likely to survive to hospital discharge than when resuscitation was provided by an ambulance technician. Resuscitation by a paramedic assisted by a medical practitioner offers a patient the best chances of surviving the event.  (+info)

Patient education in nuclear medicine technology practice. (6/476)

This is the second article of a two-part series on patient education. This article builds on the first one by discussing some of the unique considerations in providing patient education in the nuclear medicine department. Concrete strategies for nuclear medicine technology practice are discussed here. After reading this article, the technologist should be able to: (a) describe the affective and technical aspects of the nuclear medicine technologist's role as a patient educator; (b) identify some strategies that nuclear medicine technologists can use to become better teachers; and (c) describe factors that affect patient learning in the nuclear medicine department and some approaches to overcome or minimize learning barriers.  (+info)

Practical aspects of radiation safety for using fluorine-18. (7/476)

The use of positron-emitting nuclides is becoming routine in nuclear medicine departments today. Introducing these nuclides into the nuclear medicine department can be a smooth transition by instituting educational lectures, radiation safety protocols and patient education. The radiation safety concerns of the technical staff, physicians and ancillary personnel are important and must be addressed. Nuclear medicine departments can be optimistic about implementing PET imaging while staying well within ALARA guidelines. After reading this article, the technologist should be able to: (a) describe at least three ways to reduce the radiation dose to the technologist during the performance of PET imaging procedures with 18F; (b) discuss the relationships between gamma-ray energy, the amount of activity administered to a patient, exposure time and occupational dose; and (c) describe one strategy to minimize the radiation dose to the bladder in patients who have received 18F.  (+info)

Mapping the literature of perfusion. (8/476)

Perfusionists select and operate the equipment necessary for monitoring, supporting, or temporarily replacing the patient's circulatory or respiratory function. There are over 3,000 perfusionists working in U.S. hospitals, medical and perfusionist groups, and as independent contractors. The purpose of this study was to identify the core literature of perfusion and to determine which major databases provide the most thorough access to this literature. This paper is part of the Medical Library Association Nursing and Allied Health Resource Section's project to map the literature of the allied health professions. It uses a bibliometric methodology to identify core journals. A group of forty-three journals was determined to make up the core journal literature of perfusion. MEDLINE provided the best overall indexing coverage for these journals, but librarians and perfusionists will wish to supplement its use with the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature in order to access the journals written primarily for perfusionists. The study results can guide purchasing and database searching decisions of collection development and reference librarians, encourage the database producer to increase coverage of titles that are unindexed or underindexed, and advise perfusionists of the best access to their core literature.  (+info)

No matter whether you are a physician (no matter your specialty) or an allied health professional, like it or not, the role of allied health professionals is growing.. From the medical doctor perspective, this brings an initial reaction of fear. From the paraprofessional perspective, this brings an initial reaction of opportunity. And from the hospital perspective, especially the hospital-with-"aligned"-providers perspective, this brings an initial reaction of the opportunity to play more competitors off of one another.. The latest tectonic event in this regard: A March 15, 2012, ruling of the California Court of Appeal, the states intermediary level court, that was of little surprise to legal scholars but of tremendous angst to the California Medical Association and the California Society of Anesthesologists, in which the court affirmed that California law does not require that CRNAs be supervised by physicians. In other words, unless overturned by the California Supreme Court, CRNAs may ...
This is the first study to examine the experiences of allied health managers in the managing of and training for the staff that deliver weekend allied health services. It has revealed two major uncertainties faced by managers when providing weekend allied health services on acute medical and surgical wards: "Do the costs outweigh the benefits?" and "What type of service should be provided?" These uncertainties indicate there may be great variation in how these services are delivered in real life and in the actual cost-effectiveness of these real life programs. The challenges described by the participants in this study imply that running a sustainable and efficient weekend service is very difficult, given the problems with recruiting, training, rostering and retaining staff and the limitations to other service availability on the weekends.. A number of managers perceived benefits to both patients and the health service in providing weekend allied health services and saw the decision to provide ...
In addition to seeing our neurosurgeons, you may also be scheduled with one of Tallahassee Neurological Clinics allied health professionals for follow-up care. The allied health professionals are board certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants who practice in collaboration with the neurosurgeons, providing a team approach in the management of patients health care.. The goal of the allied health professional is to provide you with greater continuity and access to neurosurgical care. Their appointments are structured so that they can speak with you in depth about your diagnosis and test results. Allied health professionals are highly skilled in teaching and counseling to help you better manage your condition. They will report back to your doctor to keep him or her updated on your condition until your next follow-up visit.. ...
Once a health (facility) has committed to providing this service, it is very difficult to remove. Trials like ours provide an evidence base that should have been created two decades ago before these services were implemented so broadly," Haines said.. As reported in PLoS Medicine, Haines and his colleagues conducted two trials over the course of about a year, involving almost 15,000 patients.. First, weekend allied health services were incrementally removed from 12 acute surgical or medical wards in two hospitals in Melbourne.. Next, researchers asked doctors, nurses and allied health staff to identify and prioritise the most important tasks for allied health services to provide on weekends. Based on those interviews, newly redeveloped services were reintroduced incrementally into the same wards.. The researchers found that removing allied health services didnt appear to affect the time patients spent in the hospital and didnt seem to impact safety issues.. In addition, adding the new services ...
As a general rule Medicare refunds do not cover psychology services.

Important, misunderstood, and challenging: a qualitative study of nurses’ and allied health professionals’ perceptions of implementing self-management for patients with COPD Hannah ML Young,1 Lindsay D Apps,1 Samantha L Harrison,1 Vicki L Johnson-Warrington,1 Nicky Hudson,2 Sally J Singh1,3 1National Institute of Health Research CLAHRC-LNR Pulmonary Rehabilitation Research Group, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, 2School of Applied Social Sciences, De Montfort University, Leicester, 3Applied Research Centre in Health and Lifestyle Interventions, Coventry University, Coventry, UK Background: In light of the growing burden of COPD, there is increasing focus on the role of self-management for this population. Currently, self-management varies widely. Little is known either about nurses’ and allied health professionals’ (AHPs’) understanding and provision of self-management in clinical practice. This study explores nurses’ and AHPs’ understanding and
Compassion is a complex and multifaceted concept that has been explored from a range of cultural, philosophical, theological, and sociological perspectives. It can be considered a prerequisite for optimal health care, an expectation of the general public from their health care system, and a specific approach to care which should underpin the work of health care professionals globally. Given the nature of life-limiting illness and the challenges that shifting goals of care impose, the place of compassion as the underlying construct governing health care decisions would seem paramount. Yet there is an increasing concern-particularly in the UK media and recent reviews of clinical practices around end-of-life care-suggesting that somehow compassion has been lost as a governing principle of care giving. The reasons for this are not always clear, but increased clinical intervention, the over-professionalization of care, and lack of formal teaching on the topic of compassion are all indicated. Given ...
Dozens of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are published annually with the potential to improve the quality and safety of health care. However, failure to implement CPG recommendations has resulted in patients receiving care that is inappropriate, unnecessary, or even harmful [1-3]. Effective interventions are needed to address the barriers to change required for successful implementation of CPGs.. The most comprehensive systematic review to date identified small to moderate effects of most interventions to implement CPGs [4]. Despite some promising interventions, existing studies provide limited guidance on the factors that moderate the effects of these interventions in different settings, professional groups, and for different targeted behaviours. Consequently, we know little about how to formulate effective strategies for implementing CPGs. The use of theory has been advocated to inform intervention development with the potential to improve our understanding of why a ...

Paramedic Scope of Practice under the Regulated Health Professions Act (1991) The Regulated Health Professions Act details the controlled acts that a physician or his delegate can perform with respect to an individual. The list is comprised of 13 main acts. Of these 13 acts, it is within the Paramedic Scope of Practice to perform 8 procedures* on the list when the Paramedic is certified under a Base Hospital Physician who is licensed to practice in the Province of Ontario. This means that aside from Physicians, Paramedics are able to perform more controlled acts under a standing order from their own Base Hospital Physician than any other medical discipline including Nurses, Respiratory Therapists and Midwives. CONTROLLED ACTS A "controlled act" is any one of the following done with respect to an individual: 1.* Communicating to the individual or his or her personal representative a diagnosis identifying a disease or disorder as the cause of symptoms of the individual in circumstances in which it ...
Respiratory Therapists are allied health professionals who are educated and trained as physician-extenders. We are patient care managers who based on physical examination, and ongoing patient assessment, determine the need for and allocate respiratory care services, managing clinical resources from acute care through discharge planning, to sub-acute and/or home care. We interpret clinically derived patient data, and modify treatment, as the patients needs change.. As respiratory therapists we often work with our patients from the time of their admission through to their discharge, so we get to see the change that results from what we do for them. When we go home at the end of the day we carry a sense of satisfaction that is uncommon in many careers because when we treat and manage our patients there is immediate and measurable improvement.. Our focus is in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients suffering from diseases of the cardiopulmonary system. We serve as members of cardiac ...

A paramedic whose life has been saved by at least 70 people after developing leukaemia has urged others to give blood and save more lives.
Vanessa flipped over to her hands and knees and we continued to listen to the baby, whose heart rate soon returned to normal. The bleeding stopped. The heart rate dropped a little bit during the next few contractions, and then didnt drop at all. When the paramedics arrived, they peaked into the room where Vanessa was laboring on her hands and knees on the bed while we listened to the babys heart rate. The head paramedic assessed the goings-on in the room, and said to me, "I see you have everything under control, just come out here in the hallway and tell me what is going on." I was pleased with his respectful, hands-off attitude. I stepped out of the room and gave him report; what had happened and how my concern was quickly diminishing.
