Antithrombotic prescribing in atrial fibrillation: application of a prescribing indicator and multidisciplinary feedback to improve prescribing. (1/132)

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation is common in older people, and is associated with an increased risk of ischaemic stroke. Antithrombotic therapy reduces stroke-risk, but is known to be under-prescribed. OBJECTIVES: To use an evidence-based indicator to audit antithrombotic prescribing for older hospital inpatients with atrial fibrillation, and to assess whether feedback of audit results to hospital staff increases antithrombotic use. DESIGN: Cross-sectional notes-based audits, before and after feedback. SETTING: Six Aged Care and three General Medicine units at nine Australian public teaching hospitals between September 1998 and May 1999. SUBJECTS: 1416 hospital inpatients aged 65 years and over (median age 81). METHODS: Medication charts were reviewed to identify patients prescribed digoxin or amiodarone. Presence of atrial fibrillation was confirmed by review of the patients' medical notes. To be considered appropriate, patients with atrial fibrillation had to be receiving either warfarin or aspirin (or both), or have documented contraindications to both agents. Feedback of audit results was provided to medical, pharmacy and nursing staff at multidisciplinary meetings. Changes in antithrombotic prescribing 4-8 weeks and 6 months after feedback were assessed. Prescribing 8 weeks prior to feedback was assessed retrospectively. RESULTS: Appropriateness of the decision to prescribe (or not prescribe) antithrombotic therapy increased from 81/112 (72%) immediately prior to feedback to 97/105 (92%) 4-8 weeks later (P<0.0001). Six months after feedback, appropriateness of prescribing declined slightly, to 85% (p=0.36). Over the 8 weeks prior to feedback, appropriateness of prescribing did not change (74% versus 77%, p=0.80). Increased aspirin prescribing accounted for most of the improvement in antithrombotic use after feedback, while warfarin continued to be under-used. CONCLUSIONS: Antithrombotics were under-prescribed for older patients with atrial fibrillation. Audit and multidisciplinary feedback resulted in increased antithrombotic prescribing. The intervention had a greater impact on aspirin prescribing compared with warfarin.  (+info)

Treatment-resistant depressed patients show a good response to Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. (2/132)

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a class-based programme designed for use in the prevention of relapse of major depression. Its aim is to teach participants to disengage from those cognitive processes that may render them vulnerable to future episodes. These same cognitive processes are also known to maintain depression once established, hence a clinical audit was conducted to explore the use of MBCT in patients who were currently actively depressed, and who had not responded fully to standard treatments. The study showed that it was acceptable to these patients and resulted in an improvement in depression scores (pre-post Effect Size=1.04), with a significant proportion of patients returning to normal or near-normal levels of mood.  (+info)

A comparison of patients' perceptions and an audit of health promotion practice within a UK hospital. (3/132)

BACKGROUND: UK hospitals are required to monitor the health promotion services they provide for patients. We compared the use of audit and patient questionnaires as appropriate tools for monitoring whether patients are screened for modifiable risk factors (smoking, alcohol use, obesity, diet, and physical activity), whether staff correctly identify risk factor presence and deliver health promotion when a risk factor is identified. METHODS: We sent a questionnaire post-discharge to 322 hospitalised adult patients discharged alive between January and March 2006, and audited their hospital case notes for evidence of screening for risk factors, identification of risk factors, and delivery of health promotion to change risk factors. Agreement between the audit and questionnaire findings was assessed by Kappa statistic. RESULTS: There was little relationship between what was written in the case notes and what patients thought had happened. Agreement between the audit and questionnaire for screening of risk factors was at best fair. For the delivery of health promotion agreement was moderate for alcohol, poor for exercise, and no different from chance for smoking and diet. Agreement on identifying risk factors was very good for obesity, good for smoking, and moderate for alcohol misuse. The identification of diet quality and level of physical activity was too low in the audit to allow statistical comparison with self-reported diet and activity. CONCLUSION: A direct comparison of data gathered in the audit and patient questionnaires provides a comprehensive picture of health promotion practice within hospitals. Poor screening agreement is likely to be due to errors in patients' recall of screening activities. Audit is therefore the preferred method for evaluating screening of risk factors, but further insight into screening practice can be gained by using the questionnaire in conjunction with audit. If a patient does not recognise that they received health promotion, then this is tantamount to not receiving it, we therefore recommend that the patient questionnaire is the preferred method for monitoring health promotion delivered. For monitoring the accuracy of risk factor identification either method is appropriate as long as the hospital uses validated screening tools for identifying alcohol misuse, diet, and physical activity.  (+info)

Effects of study methodology on adverse outcome occurrence and mortality. (4/132)

PURPOSE: To assess the impact of variables related to setting, study design and definition on adverse outcome occurrence and mortality in hospitalized patients. DATA SOURCES: Pubmed and Embase. STUDY SELECTION: Articles in English from 1980 onwards, in non-selected patients or surgical patients only. DATA EXTRACTION: Data were extracted independently by two authors using a predefined form. Included study methodology variables were general variables such as setting, patient variables like age, study variables like number of reviewers and definition and the resulting adverse outcome occurrence and mortality. RESULTS: Eleven studies reporting on 76 617 non-selected patients and 18 studies representing 136 292 surgical patients were included. Adverse outcomes were estimated to occur in 16% (12-19%) of non-selected patients and in 18% (14-22%) of surgical patients, taking into account the heterogeneity between studies. The study methodology variables were not statistically significant in explaining variation in adverse outcome occurrence, but the individual studies, when used as a random effect variable, were significant. Conversely, the study variable was not significant to explain variation in mortality rates, whereas the study methodology variables were: having more than one reviewer increased mortality by 30-80%, older study populations resulted in higher mortality and including a cause in the definition halved the mortality rate. CONCLUSION: Study methodology variables do not explain differences in adverse outcome occurrence between studies. Other inter-study differences are more important. However, study methodology is an important predictor for mortality differences and should be taken into account when interpreting differences between studies.  (+info)

Metastatic spinal cord compression as an oncology emergency: getting our act together. (5/132)

BACKGROUND: Metastatic spinal cord compression is a dreaded complication of cancer affecting 5-10% of patients requiring urgent treatment. A clinical practice improvement project was carried out to review and fine tune the clinical pathway for the acute management of patients with metastatic spinal cord compression. OBJECTIVE: To improve the quality of care for metastatic spinal cord compression over 6 months by ensuring that >90% of patients receive definitive treatment within 24 h of radiological diagnosis. METHOD: Using clinical practice improvement project methodology, the clinical pathway of 17 patients treated with radiotherapy for metastatic spinal cord compression within the last 6 months were reviewed to identify gaps and delays in the system. Interventions to form a multidisciplinary acute spinal cord crisis team, fine tune clinical referral processes and formulate a standardized treatment protocol were then implemented. Post-intervention of 22 subsequent patients were monitored for time to start steroids and radiation therapy, length of stay and hospitalization bill. RESULTS: With the interventions implemented, the mean response time to start steroidal therapy was reduced from 8.4 to 2.6 days and radiotherapy from 9.9 to 3.9 days. These translated into shorter mean length of stay from 23.8 to 14.7 days and smaller hospitalization bill size from 13,723 to 8,808 Singapore dollars. CONCLUSION: A clinical practice improvement project, to improve the quality of care for patients with metastatic spinal cord compression, can shorten response time to start steroidal therapy and definitive radiotherapy resulting in shorter length of stay and smaller hospitalization bill.  (+info)

Association between quality of primary care and hospitalization for coronary heart disease in England: national cross-sectional study. (6/132)

BACKGROUND: A new pay-for-performance scheme for primary care physicians was introduced in England in 2004 as part of an initiative to link the quality of primary care with physician pay. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between the quality of primary care and rates of hospital admissions for coronary heart disease. DESIGN: Ecological cross-sectional study using data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework for family practice, hospital admissions, and census data. PARTICIPANTS: All 303 primary care trusts in England, covering approximately 50 million people. MEASUREMENTS: Rates of elective and unplanned hospital admissions for coronary heart disease and rates of coronary angioplasty and coronary artery bypass grafting were regressed against quality-of-care measures from the Quality and Outcomes Framework, area socioeconomic scores, and disease prevalence. RESULTS: Correlations between prevalence, area socioeconomic scores, and admission rates were generally weak. The strongest relations were seen between area socioeconomic scores and elective and unplanned hospital admissions and revascularization procedures among the age group 45-74 years. Among those aged 75 years and over, the only positive association observed was between area socioeconomic scores and unplanned hospital admissions. CONCLUSIONS: The lack of an association between quality scores and admission rates suggests that improving the quality of primary care may not reduce demands on the hospital sector and that other factors are much better predictors of hospitalization for coronary heart disease.  (+info)

Scaling up clinical audits of obstetric cases in Morocco. (7/132)

OBJECTIVES: To follow-up on the process of implementing clinical audits of obstetric cases in Morocco as recommended by the Ministry of Health (2001) and to explore both the barriers to and factors facilitating sustainability of clinical audits. METHOD: Questionnaires were sent to heads of all 61 Moroccan health provinces (response rate 69%) to ask if their maternity units had implemented clinical audits between 1998 and 2003. Twenty of the 42 public maternities which responded had performed so. Thirteen of these 20 hospitals were visited and 56 semi-structured interviews held with administrators and health professionals. Locally available audit registers were consulted to triangulate data. RESULTS: Eleven of 13 maternities visited conducted an average of 6.8 case reviews per year with a total average of 16.7 cases per hospital (range 4-38). Although interviewees confirmed that audits resulted in better quality of care, five hospitals had ceased performing audits altogether and the remainder did them less frequently, because of audit teams encountering staff resistance, insufficient understanding of the audit concept, difficulties in organizing sessions, and lack of administrative support. Insufficient training and external assistance hindered the implementation of complete audit loops, resulting in a loss of staff motivation. CONCLUSION: Implementing clinical audits as a means to improving quality of care requires a significant investment in training and various kinds of on-going assistance--factors which decision-makers should be aware of.  (+info)

National audit of continence care for older people: management of urinary incontinence. (8/132)

INTRODUCTION: the Department of Health report 'Good practice in continence services' highlights the need for proper assessment and management of urinary incontinence. The National Service Framework for Older People required service providers to establish integrated continence services by April 2004. A national audit was conducted to assess the quality of continence care for older people and whether these requirements have been met. METHOD: the audit studied incontinent individuals of 65 years and over. Each site returned data on organisational structure and the process of 20 patients' care. Data were submitted via the internet, and all were anonymous. RESULTS: the national audit was conducted across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Data on the care of patients/residents with bladder problems were returned by 141/326 (43%) of primary care trusts (PCT), by 159/196 (81%) of secondary care trusts (involving 198 hospitals) and by 29/309 (9%) of invited care homes. In all 58% of PCT, 48% of hospitals and 74% of care homes reported that integrated continence services existed in their area. Whilst basic provision of care appeared to be in place, the audit identified deficiencies in the organisation of services, and in the assessment and management of urinary incontinence in the elderly. CONCLUSION: the results of this audit indicate that the requirement for integrated continence services has not yet been met. Assessment and care by professionals directly looking after the older person were often lacking. There is an urgent need to re-establish the fundamentals of continence care into the practice of medical and nursing staff and action needs to be taken with regard to the establishment of truly integrated, quality services in this neglected area of practice.  (+info)

This study aims to determine the audit tenure as the moderating influence of firm size on audit report lag. The population in this research is manufacturing companies listed in Indonesia Stock Exchange 2009-2014 period. The samples used as many as 34 companies by purposive sampling method. The analysis technique used is Moderated Regression Analysis (MRA). Based on the analysis and hypothesis testing, then we got the conclusion that (1) the size of the companys negative effect on the audit report lag which shows that the bigger the company, the shorter the audit report lag, (2) tenure audit able to moderate (strengthen) the effect of firm size on audit report lag which shows that companies are audited by an auditor to audit the long tenure has a level of audit report lag is low. Completion of the audit will be faster if the auditors audit the audit firm with long tenure at a large company.
A review of the literature found that the translation of clinical audit from human to veterinary medicine had resulted in confusing and conflicting advice for practitioners working with all species. The definition of clinical audit seemed unclear, advice on how to conduct the process differed between authors and the relationship with evidence and guidelines was ambitious. Very few publications were based on research evidence and most centred on expert opinion. There was also no information on how clinical audit was used or understood by farm animal practitioners. A cross-sectional study to collect experiences and attitudes of farm animal veterinary surgeons in the UK towards clinical audit was conducted using a nationwide survey. Despite the emphasis put on the process, the survey revealed that many veterinary surgeons had never heard of clinical audit, or never been involved in clinical audit in farm animal practice. The participants knowledge of clinical audit varied widely, supporting the ...
Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. The top priority of secondary prevention is to control modifiable risk factors. However, current cardiovascular risk factor management remains inadequate and monitoring programs, like clinical audits, are lacking. Objectives: i| to summarize the importance of clinical audits in daily practice; ii| to describe CVD risk factor recording and management in routine practice; iii| to assess potential determinants within and between different geographic regions; and iv| to summarize the use of cardiovascular medication in China. Results: The consistency and representativeness of existing clinical audits were still limited. SURF CHD (SUrvey of Risk Factors Coronary Heart Disease) was a straightforward and targeted clinical audit to simplify the recording and monitoring of routine CVD risk factors. SURF recruited 10,186 CHD patients in 11 countries among three different regions (Europe, Asia, and the Middle East). Recording

This is our final report on the Audit of Contracting Through Interagency Agreements With the Library of Congress. We made the audit from February through May 1989. The audit was made in response to information provided to us by the General Counsel and the Inspector General of the Library of Congress. The information concerned possible improprieties relating to the practice by several DoD activities of providing funding to the Library of Congress for the purpose of contracting for services and supplies through the Librarys Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) procurement program. This included the contracting for non-library related services and supplies that were outside of the intended scope of the FEDLINK procurement program. The number of DoD activities participating in the FEDLINK procurement program increased from 551 in FY 1987 to 735 in FY 1988. The value of the interagency agreements entered into increased from $35.6 million in FY 1987 to $83.4 million in FY 1988. The audit

Source: TIGTA analysis of SAAS audit trails.. In addition to not recording events and data elements that fully reflected the nature of the transactions we observed, we also identified three other deficiencies where some events were not captured as they occurred, variable fields contained long strings of useless information, and timestamps were inconsistent from application to application and may not have been properly synchronized.. Our testing showed that some events were not captured as they occurred. Specifically, we found no one-to-one correlation between transactions and the events that were recorded in the SAAS. For example, when two returns from different tax years were accessed in the same user session, only one record was written to the SAAS, and it did not capture the tax years. Additionally, the AMS allowed users to access information from other applications, and these accesses were not recorded in the SAAS either by the AMS or the other applications.

This month I also had some casework, which was mostly routine. The worst thing I had was with the audit reports on a European Network of Excellence project FIDIS. Although I like doing the work in the project, this did not work out with the accountants. Our accountants are very afraid to give an audit report since cases as Enron etc, and that means that they will look after any small detail, and for a relatively small sum, 10 percent of the cost and work is in the meantime audit costs. They still refuse to give such a report, and are on vacation untill September (which is of course to late for the European Commission). That is the dark side of these projects, they cost lots of bureaucracy and the creativity and enthousiasm is lost for the work if it works like this. This is also true for many other project management models, such as Prince 2. This month I had so many reports with lots of text, that it was not easy to find how the project is working out.

The Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA) provides income and medical cost protection to covered Federal civilian employees injured on the job, employees who have incurred a work-related occupational disease, and beneficiaries of employees whose death is attributable to a job-related injury or occupational disease. Claims incurred for benefits for VCRTF employees under FECA are administered by the Department of Labor (DOL) and are ultimately paid by the VCRTF. The future workers compensation liability has two components, (1) unpaid billings, and (2) an amount of estimated unbilled claims. The unbilled claims are estimated by applying actuarial procedures. The DOL calculated the liability of the Federal Government for future compensation benefits, which includes the expected liability for death, disability, medical, and miscellaneous costs for approved compensation costs. The liability was determined using the paid-losses extrapolation method calculated over the next 23-year period. This ...

So, clinical audit is not new; it is something that many health professionals have done for a long time now as part of everyday practice.. But, HANA is different from many national audits in that it aims to monitor the whole patient pathway including complications and outcomes, which we think will make it even more valuable in terms of identifying and promoting best practice and improving patient care in the future.. We are very keen to continue to involve patients in the development and implementation of HANA. This should ensure that the audit is asking questions that are relevant to the people who are particularly affected ...
A flash memory device programs cells in each row in a manner that minimizes the number of programming pulses that must be applied to the cells during programming. The flash memory device includes a pseudo pass circuit that determines the number of data errors in each of a plurality of subsets of data that has been programmed in the row. The size of each subset corresponds to the number of read data bits coupled from the memory device, which are simultaneously applied to error checking and correcting circuitry. During iterative programming of a row of cells, the pseudo pass circuit indicates a pseudo pass condition to terminate further programming of the row if none of the subsets of data have a number of data errors that exceeds the number of data errors that can be corrected by the error checking and correcting circuitry.

But Ritter and his energy director, former Rep. Tom Plant, have questioned why a 2010 audit of federal stimulus and grant money funneled to the energy office resulted in a no issues favorable finding.. And Plant said the energy office has experienced a high turnover since Hickenlooper took office in January 2011 and he might have been able to answer questions the new staff could not.. Michelle Colin, a legislative audit manager who oversaw the recent energy-office audit, said the audit team bases its results on documentation, not interviews with people who have left state government.. When we audit any organization in the state, we expect the documentation, the information that we need, to be within that organization, she said. We do not say in the audit report that they misspent these funds and we didnt say they were not spent cost effectively. We said they were not able to provide us documentation to show us they were spent cost effectively.. The committees that reviewed the audit were ...

By Brad Clyburn Ph D., Chr. Hansen Animal Health & Nutrition. Ensiled forages account for the majority of most dairy rations around the world. The main purpose for feeding ensiled forages is to preserve and recover organic dry matter, while retaining nutritional value and palatability. Proper or improved silage management can have a significant impact on the overall profitability of the dairy.. The Chr. Hansen Silage Audit is a program designed to assess silage quality at the farm level and provide suggestions for improvements. To get started, a Chr. Hansen Account Manager analyzes the bunker with an infrared thermal-imaging camera. With this imagery a silage audit report is created that includes a detailed visual analysis, as well as pH, temperature, density, fermentation profile and a thermal infrared photo of the silage face. It is important to note that the purpose of this audit is not to be a report card, but rather a means to help good managers become great managers. Porosity samples are ...

This is an the fourth of four online AbilityNet sessions looking at digital accessibility, specifically how to understand the results of accessibility evaluations and testing results. The new Web Accessibility regulations require Universities to conduct audits and testing across all their digital estates, form websites to learning environments. These tests can be carried out by external contractors or your own in-house teams (see Workshop 3 for how to do this yourself) Although built around common standards such as WCAG2.1, many people find accessibility test results and audit reports difficult to understand. Automatically generated reports or expert audits can produce a list of issues that need prioritising. Organisations must also decide how these accessibility barriers are communicated through their accessibility statement and how they can remediate them in the future. This session is aimed at anyone creating, managing or procuring digital content or systems. It will also be of value as an ...

Our courses are structured and created in a standardized fashion. The process starts with the writing of a step-by-step guide which is then followed by filming the procedure using high-resolution cameras. The film is then edited with the addition of highlights, inlays, and voice-overs to guide and augment learning. The step-by-step guide is written based on the thorough and rigorous review of international guidelines, peer-reviewed publications, and audit reports. It is then reviewed by internal and external surgical specialists.. Our MDs spend more than 40 hours (on average) on a film. The production and editing team (specialized in 3D filming) spends 30-50 hours on every film. Under the supervision of experienced anatomists, a relevant anatomy lesson is added to the courses. Apart from the 2D/3D film of the procedure and the anatomy lesson, other smart learning tools such as goals, objectives, pre- and post-operative information are included in our courses.

Each year, the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) is required to prepare a risk-based audit plan which sets out the priorities of the internal audit activity, consistent with the organizations goals and priorities. The audit planning process is aligned with the Departments strategic objectives. The input from the Departmental Audit Committee (DAC) and senior management is considered in setting audit priorities.. The starting point for the risk-based planning process is the audit universe which is comprised of NRCans auditable entities. These auditable entities include programs, activities, processes, policies and initiatives which collectively contribute to the achievement of the Departments strategic objectives. The Audit Branch used NRCans Program Activity Architecture (PAA) as well as an inventory of external legislated services to help assess completeness of the audit universe. The NRCan audit universe includes 120 auditable entities.. All programs, projects, activities, processes, policies ...
While we are making good progress in rejuvenating our buildings, we have also implemented various measures to green our built environment. We have introduced legislation to require new buildings and buildings that are undergoing major retrofitting to comply with minimum energy efficiency standards in order to enhance the energy efficiency performance of buildings. Hotels and commercial buildings are further required to comply with a statutory standard to reduce heat transfer through building envelopes, thereby saving energy consumption for air-conditioning. The mandatory standards are developed with reference to the latest developments in technology and practices and are subject to regular reviews. We are also an international pioneer in requiring commercial building owners to carry out mandatory energy audits once every ten years, and to publish the audit results ...
ONE OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRYS MOST DREADED JOBS. Nobody likes doing company fuel tax and preparing IFTA reports. Its takes forever, its an extremely tedious job, and when your company doubles in size, it means youll have double the paperwork. For even small to medium sized trucking businesses, fuel tax can often take 40+ hours of someones time - every single quarter. On top of all that, it needs to be done right. A few small mistakes can leave your company on the hook for serious fines, penalties, and/or interest payments. If youve been in the industry for a while, you have probably heard stories about failed audits and what a huge problem they can be for the unfortunate carriers. Many people dont realize that around 75% of IFTA audits result in a penalty of some kind.. Having to double-check your fuel tax calculations makes an already tiresome and stressful job take even longer.. Its almost 2020… Havent we figured out a better way to do this yet?.

Step 4 If any of the records in error were new, you must change the database function for the records. Because Cisco ER has already exported these records, Cisco ER will label them as updates rather than new insertions. However, because these records failed on upload, the service providers database will view them as new. ...
A method and system for managing uncorrectable data error conditions from an I/O subsystem as the UE passes through a plurality of devices in a central electronic complex (CEC) is disclosed. The method and system comprises detecting a I/O UE by at least one device in the CEC; and providing an SUE-RE (Special Uncorrectable Data Error-Recoverable Error) attention signal by at least one device to a diagnostic system that indicates the I/O UE condition. The method and system further includes analyzing the SUE-RE attention signal by the diagnostic system to produce an error log with a list of failing parts and a record of the log. A method and system in accordance with the present invention provides a new fault isolation methodology and algorithm, which extends the current capability of a service processor runtime diagnostic code (PRD). The method allows for the accurate determination of an error source and provides appropriate service action if and when the system fails to recover from the UE condition.

Conducting a self-review based on the audit protocols can help BAs prepare for desk audits; it can also help BAs and CEs get ready for the more exhaustive on-site audits. And as OCR steps up investigations of breaches large and small-while cyberthreats continue to mount-the audit protocols offer a blueprint that can help an organization identify and address risks. Following protocols The phase two audit protocols were built on the phase one protocols and updated to include changes made by the 2013 HIPAA omnibus final rule. (For more information on the phase two audit protocols, see the July issue of BOH.) The updates also include information specifically for BAs. But the protocols are useful beyond simply checking boxes for audited organizations: Any CE or BA can use them to evaluate compliance. Every affected organization should be routinely conducting reviews of its regulatory compliance, says Kate Borten, CISSP, CISM, HCISSP, founder of The Marblehead Group in Marblehead,
