The impact of a multidisciplinary approach on caring for ventilator-dependent patients. (1/2766)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical and financial outcomes of a highly structured multidisciplinary care model for patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) who require prolonged mechanical ventilation. The structured model outcomes (protocol group) are compared with the preprotocol outcomes. DESIGN: Descriptive study with financial analysis. SETTING: A twelve-bed medical-surgical ICU in a non-teaching tertiary referral center in Ogden, Utah. STUDY PARTICIPANTS: During a 54 month period, 469 consecutive intensive care patients requiring mechanical ventilation for longer than 72 hours who did not meet exclusion criteria were studied. INTERVENTIONS: A multidisciplinary team was formed to coordinate the care of ventilator-dependent patients. Care was integrated by daily collaborative bedside rounds, monthly meetings, and implementation of numerous guidelines and protocols. Patients were followed from the time of ICU admission until the day of hospital discharge. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients were assigned APACHE II scores on admission to the ICU, and were divided into eight diagnostic categories. ICU length of stay, hospital length of stay, costs, charges, reimbursement, and in-hospital mortality were measured. RESULTS: Mortality in the preprotocol and protocol group, after adjustment for APACHE II scores, remained statistically unchanged (21-23%). After we implemented the new care model, we demonstrated significant decreases in the mean survivor's ICU length of stay (19.8 days to 14.7 days, P= 0.001), hospital length of stay (34.6 days to 25.9 days, P=0.001), charges (US$102500 to US$78500, P=0.001), and costs (US$71900 to US$58000, P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a structured multidisciplinary care model to care for a heterogeneous population of ventilator-dependent ICU patients was associated with significant reductions in ICU and hospital lengths of stay, charges, and costs. Mortality rates were unaffected.  (+info)

Ward pharmacy: a foundation for prescribing audit? (3/2766)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the extent and nature of prescription monitoring incidents by hospital pharmacists and to derive a performance indicator to allow prescription monitoring to be compared among hospitals in North West Thames region. DESIGN: Survey of all self recorded prescription monitoring incidents for one week in June 1990. SETTING: All (31) acute hospitals in the region with pharmacy departments on site, covering 10,337 beds. SUBJECTS: 210 pharmacists. MAIN MEASURES: Number of prescription monitoring incidents recorded, their nature, and outcome; a performance indicator of prescription monitoring (incidents/100 beds/week) and its variation according to specialty and site. RESULTS: 3273 prescription monitoring incidents were recorded (median 89 per hospital, range 3-301), the most common being related to the dose and frequency of administration of the drug (933 incidents, 29%). These incidents led to alterations of prescriptions on 1611 occasions; the pharmacist's advice was rejected on 81. The greatest number of prescription monitoring incidents/100 beds/week by specialty was recorded for intensive therapy units (median 75); the medians for medicine and surgery were 32 and 21 respectively. This performance indicator varied 20-fold when analysed by site, values ranging from 3.6 to 82.1 (median 29.8). CONCLUSIONS: Hospital pharmacists play a large part in monitoring and improving prescribing, and most of their interventions are related to the basics of prescribing. They therefore have a role in medical audit, working with clinicians to identify prescribing problems, and to set standards and monitor practice. A performance indicator of prescription monitoring incidents/100 beds/week allows comparison of pharmacists' activities among sites and may be a valuable tool in auditing them.  (+info)

Paediatric home care in Tower Hamlets: a working partnership with parents. (4/2766)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the first two years of a paediatric home care service. DESIGN: Observational cross sectional study, 1989-91. SETTING: One inner London health district. PATIENTS: 611 children referred to the service; 50 children selected from those referred during the first year, whose parents were interviewed and whose general practitioners were invited to complete a questionnaire. MAIN MEASURES: Description and costs of service; views of parents and general practitioners of selected sample of children. RESULTS: In its second year the team received 303 referrals and made 4004 visits at a salary cost of 98000 pounds, an average of 323 pounds/referral and 24 pounds/visit. This represented a referral rate of 3.2% (258/7939) of inpatient episodes from the main referring hospital between 1 December 1989 and 30 November 1990. Of all referrals to the service, 343(56%) came from hospital inpatient wards. The service was used by disadvantaged and ethnic minority families. The children's parents (in 28(61%) families) and the home care team did a wide range of nursing tasks in the home. Parents of 47(94%) children sampled agreed to be interviewed, and those of 43(91%) found the service useful; guidance and support were most commonly appreciated (33, 70%). Parents of 25(53%) children said that hospital stay or attendance had been reduced or avoided. Parents and general practitioners disagreed on clinical responsibility in 10 children, and communication was a problem for some general practitioners. CONCLUSIONS: The service enabled children to receive advanced nursing care at home. Clinical responsibility should be agreed between parents and professionals at referral.  (+info)

Diabetes care. (5/2766)

Providing good quality diabetes care is complex but achievable. Many aspects of the care do not require high tech medicine but, rather, good organisation. Diabetes is a costly disease, consuming 1500 pounds per diabetic patient per year versus 500 pounds on average for a non-diabetic member of the population in health service costs. Investment now in good quality diabetes care is sound: patients will benefit from a better quality of life associated with a reduced incidence of the complications of diabetes and the direct costs to the health service in treating these complications and the indirect costs to employers will be reduced. Physical and clinical assessments--measurements of blood glucose and glycosylated haemoglobin concentrations, weight, and blood pressure and assessment of eyes, kidneys, feet, and heart--are clearly important, but quality must include consideration of people and their reactions to life and diabetes--a lifelong entanglement--for which much more support should be provided.  (+info)

The dangers of managerial perversion: quality assurance in primary health care. (6/2766)

The promotion of primary health care (PHC) at the Alma Ata conference has been followed by a variety of managerial initiatives in support of the development of PHC. One of the more promising vehicles has been the implementation of quality assurance mechanisms. This paper reviews recent examples of this genre and argues that the thrust of both primary health care and quality assurance are in danger of being distorted by a rather antiquated approach to management.  (+info)

Understanding adverse events: human factors. (7/2766)

(1) Human rather than technical failures now represent the greatest threat to complex and potentially hazardous systems. This includes healthcare systems. (2) Managing the human risks will never be 100% effective. Human fallibility can be moderated, but it cannot be eliminated. (3) Different error types have different underlying mechanisms, occur in different parts of the organisation, and require different methods of risk management. The basic distinctions are between: Slips, lapses, trips, and fumbles (execution failures) and mistakes (planning or problem solving failures). Mistakes are divided into rule based mistakes and knowledge based mistakes. Errors (information-handling problems) and violations (motivational problems) Active versus latent failures. Active failures are committed by those in direct contact with the patient, latent failures arise in organisational and managerial spheres and their adverse effects may take a long time to become evident. (4) Safety significant errors occur at all levels of the system, not just at the sharp end. Decisions made in the upper echelons of the organisation create the conditions in the workplace that subsequently promote individual errors and violations. Latent failures are present long before an accident and are hence prime candidates for principled risk management. (5) Measures that involve sanctions and exhortations (that is, moralistic measures directed to those at the sharp end) have only very limited effectiveness, especially so in the case of highly trained professionals. (6) Human factors problems are a product of a chain of causes in which the individual psychological factors (that is, momentary inattention, forgetting, etc) are the last and least manageable links. Attentional "capture" (preoccupation or distraction) is a necessary condition for the commission of slips and lapses. Yet, its occurrence is almost impossible to predict or control effectively. The same is true of the factors associated with forgetting. States of mind contributing to error are thus extremely difficult to manage; they can happen to the best of people at any time. (7) People do not act in isolation. Their behaviour is shaped by circumstances. The same is true for errors and violations. The likelihood of an unsafe act being committed is heavily influenced by the nature of the task and by the local workplace conditions. These, in turn, are the product of "upstream" organisational factors. Great gains in safety can ve achieved through relatively small modifications of equipment and workplaces. (8) Automation and increasing advanced equipment do not cure human factors problems, they merely relocate them. In contrast, training people to work effectively in teams costs little, but has achieved significant enhancements of human performance in aviation. (9) Effective risk management depends critically on a confidential and preferable anonymous incident monitoring system that records the individual, task, situational, and organisational factors associated with incidents and near misses. (10) Effective risk management means the simultaneous and targeted deployment of limited remedial resources at different levels of the system: the individual or team, the task, the situation, and the organisation as a whole.  (+info)

How patients perceive the role of hospital chaplains: a preliminary exploration. (8/2766)

OBJECTIVE: An exploratory study of the attitudes of hospital patients to the service provided by hospital chaplains. DESIGN: Questionnaire study of hospital inpatients in December 1992. SETTING: One large teaching hospital in London. PATIENTS: 180 hospital inpatients in 14 different general wards, 168 (93%) of whom agreed to take part. MAIN MEASURES: Attitudes to chaplains and their role contained in 12 questions developed during a pilot study on hospital inpatients (16) and staff (14) and their relation to patients' age, sex, length of hospital stay, and religious beliefs, according to Kendall rank order correlations. RESULTS: Of 168(93%) respondents, 72(43%) were women; mean age of patients was 63.1 (SD 16.8) years. Forty five (27%) were inpatients of three days or less and 22(13%) for one month or more. 136(81%) were Christian; 17(10%) atheist, agnostic, or had no religion; and 15(9%) were of other religions. In general, patients showed positive attitudes towards the role of hospital chaplains and to the services they provided. The correlation analysis showed that there was a significant tendency for older patients, those who had been inpatients for longer, and those with religious beliefs to be more sympathetic to the role of hospital chaplains. CONCLUSIONS: Hospital chaplains provide a service which is appreciated by patients. This study provides a simple instrument for assessing patients' attitudes to chaplains.  (+info)

Practical, proven techniques for improving team performance in the health care world Teams and collaboration have become an expectation in most healthcare facilities and environments. It is accepted that high performance, patient focused teams are critical to quality patient care. However, there is often a wide gap between traditional practices and the new behaviours and practices required for teamwork and collaboration. Improving Health Care Team Performance goes beyond theory to provide the knowledge, tools, and techniques required to develop a single team, or to develop an organization wide team based culture, from which exceptional patient care emerges. Most uniquely it emphasizes that effective teamwork goes far beyond team dynamics and provides detailed description of additional requirements, such as shared learning and change compatibility, and how to fulfill them. A practical handbook for healthcare leaders striving to ensure a superior patient experience and high quality of care, Improving

Introduction NICE Nutrition Support In Adults (2006) recommends that all Trusts should have a multidisciplinary Nutrition Support Team (NST). Austin & Stroud (2007) suggest its implementation can improve parenteral nutrition (PN) services and potentially reduce PN usage by up to 25%. At Croydon University Hospital (CUH), a multidisciplinary NST was set up in October 2010, consisting of a Consultant Chemical Pathologist, Consultant Gastroenterologist, dietians and pharmacists. It combined the previous PN team with the enteral nutrition (EN) team with the aim to optimise the EN of patients thereby reducing inappropriate PN usage as recommended by NCEPOD 2010. We aimed to investigate the use of PN 1 year prior to the implementation of a multidisciplinary NST and compare this to the use of PN 1 year post-implementation at CUH. ...

Introduction: In-hospital resuscitation is performed by an ad hoc cardiac arrest team. Team members generally change daily. Lack of task allocation and delayed team leader identification may compromise the quality of resuscitation. Team meetings at the beginning of members duty period and post-arrest debriefings may improve resuscitation quality.. Aim: To investigate 1) knowledge of task allocation among physicians on cardiac arrest teams, 2) if cardiac arrest team meetings were held at the beginning of members duty period, and 3) if debriefings were held post arrest.. Methods: This is a nationwide cross-sectional study covering all Danish public, somatic hospitals (n=45). Telephone interviews were conducted with all physicians, who were member of a cardiac arrest team on the day of the interview. Interviews were performed using a structured questionnaire.. Results: In total, 93 physicians (53% male) participated. There was a median of 2 (IQR: 1-3) physicians on each team. In hospitals (n=36) ...

While a group of team owners "are seeking a cut" of TV rights from the Tour de France, another "proposed remedy for cyclings general instability is to adopt a league structure like other sports, in which the teams are fixed franchises that can be bought and sold," according to Ian Austen of the N.Y. TIMES. Most teams are using the "spectacle of the Tour to amaze and lure new sponsors," but cycling team budgets are, by American standards, more like a "couple of star athletes salaries." At the top, British-based Team Sky "spends an estimated" $40.6M a year (all figures U.S.) and about six major teams are in the $23M range. Most of that money "comes from sponsors" because cycling spectators "do not pay to watch" the Tour. Although sponsors names and logos "decorate the riders clothing, cars, buses and anywhere else they will fit, the teams are usually owned by small, little-known companies." Even at the "best of times, it has been a precarious arrangement, forcing some teams to change names and ...

Assume first that the teams are labelled, with the two teams of three having labels A and B, and the three teams of four having labels C, D, and E.. There are $\binom{18}{3}$ ways to choose the people who will be on Team A. For each of these ways, there are $\binom{15}{3}$ ways to choose Team B. For every way to choose Teams A and B, there are $\binom{12}{4}$ ways to choose Team C, and then $\binom{8}{4}$ ways to choose Team D, and finally, if we like, $\binom{4}{4}$ ways to choose Team E.. However, when we remove the labels, the number of choices for the $2$ three-person teams gets divided by $2!$, and the number of choices for the $3$ four-person teams gets divided by $3!$, for a total of $$\frac{\binom{18}{3}\binom{15}{3}\binom{12}{4}\binom{8}{4}\binom{4}{4}}{2!3!}.$$.

BACKGROUND: Breakdown in communication among members of the healthcare team threatens the effective delivery of health services, and raises the risk of errors and adverse events. AIM: To describe the process of developing an authentic, theory-based evaluation instrument that measures communication among members of the operating room team by documenting communication failures. METHODS: 25 procedures were viewed by 3 observers observing in pairs, and records of events on each communication failure observed were independently completed by each observer. Each record included the type and outcome of the failure (both selected from a checklist of options), as well as the time of occurrence and a description of the event. For each observer, records of events were compiled to create a profile for the procedure. RESULTS: At the level of identifying events in the procedure, mean inter-rater agreement was low (mean agreement across pairs 47.3%). However, inter-rater reliability regarding the total number of

Laser Prostate Centers of America affiliated physicians utilize multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) to deliver high resolution images of the prostate gland and localize suspicious lesions. This enables a personalized, targeted treatment plan for each patient that meets their needs and treatment goals.. On the day of the procedure, the prostate anatomy is imaged and the tumor location and size is confirmed using real-time image guidance software. Our team will place a laser applicator in the targeted tissue. Then, the clinical team will carefully calculate a "safety zone" to protect healthy tissue and critical structures. Once placement is confirmed, the laser is activated and begins to heat and destroy tumor cells. The ablation of the targeted lesion is controlled by the clinical team in real-time with temperature monitoring software.. This cutting edge procedure is safe and effective.. ...
Typically, patients with existing diabetes are monitored for HbA1c every three to six months. This generally involves a visit for venipuncture at the lab, with a follow-up appointment one to two weeks later to discuss results once they are available. Now available at the Family Health Team is HbA1c Point of Care Testing (POCT). This involves a finger prick, much like when you test your blood sugars at home and a six minute wait for the results. From a patient experience perspective, use of Point of Care Testing for HbA1c can enhance satisfaction levels. This is because use of POCT means that after just one visit, they can leave with an immediate action plan or relevant prescription, should results indicate the need.. ...

As expected, we found that in high performing teams, immediate consequences of team monitoring were speaking-up and providing unsolicited assistance. Talking to the room led to further talking to the room and substituted explicit coordination. The results highlight the relevance of team monitoring and talking to the room for team coordination and performance in dynamic healthcare environments. ...
Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and proper treatment can be complex. This synthesis provides good evidence to show that intensive therapy using a team approach is an effective way to reach the major goals of diabetes therapy: lowering glucose (blood sugar) to appropriate levels and avoiding or postponing the onset of serious complications.

DDTT is comprised of a specialized mobile team of professionals including psychiatrists, behavioral specialists, recovery coordinators, nurses, and a pharmacist consultant. In Pennsylvania there are nine teams and these teams have 60 or 70 staff total, depending on the individual team. In California there are two teams with a total of 12 staff members. Mr. Kumpf explained the importance of finding and retaining the right staff members:. A big part is that the positions are advertised appropriately and that candidates understand the nature of this service. Part of that is the education piece when people interview and making sure they know what they are signing up for. And there is also making sure that you are wrapping enough support around the staff. If the staff feels supported, and there is an internal team that provides enough support to each team so that any clinical concerns that might arise, that clinical team would be available on a regular basis to intervene and provide guidance to the ...
Authors Note: Following a hospital survey, several questions were raised about how physicians and nurses share their work. The survey team was alarmed that some physicians were allowing registered nurses with associate degrees (two-year diplomas) to complete patient evaluations. While SETMAs work was lauded, because SETMA is committed to changing how various members of the healthcare team relate to one another, this allowed SETMA to re-think our team-approach to inpatient-healthcare delivery. This is an analysis of the process SETMA employs in the hospital.). SETMAs team approach to inpatient care is a success as demonstrated by the facts that our lengths of stay, quality metrics, cost of care and patient satisfaction are excellent. And it is one of the reasons why the indigent, uninsured and unassigned patients for whom we care receive the same quality of care as our private patients. I would offer the following observations about SETMAs team. SETMA has licensed and credentialed healthcare ...
Interprofessional teams form the basis of many health care problem-solving and decision-making mechanisms. However, more than 70% of medical errors are attributable to dysfunctional team dynamics. The recent suggestion that health care teams are more complex than nonmedical teams suggests that we re...
Hypertension). Insights into the interactions between genes and environment that independently influence the noncoding genome laid the foundation for the field of epigenetics. Armed with a variety of sensitive and specific molecular techniques, contemporary medicinal practice seeks to provide the molecular underpinning of complex pathobiologic processes and identify individuals at risk for common diseases. To fully exploit modern medicine, clinical teams are increasingly relying on a detailed understanding of cellular mechanisms and on precision drugs that disrupt the fine-structural targets underlying the molecular basis of disease. Promoter sites undergoing active transcription and relaxation of chromatin structure that become susceptible to enzymatic cleavage by nonspecific DNAase I are called hypersensitive sites. Transcription factors on promoter sites may gain access by protein-protein interactions to enhancer elements containing tissue-specific proteins at remote sites (several thousand ...

The participants were selected using the county councils staff database and included medical, caring and rehabilitative staff within hospitals, primary care, dentistry and laboratory medicine. The inclusion criteria were permanent employment and clinical work. Invitations were sent to 5787 persons to participate in the study and 1445 persons answered the questionnaire.. Results Knowledge used in daily clinical practice was mainly based on information about the patient, personal experience and local guidelines. Twenty per cent answered that they worked in the way they always had, and 11% responded that they used evidence from research as a basis for change. The participants experienced that EBP was not used enough in clinical healthcare and explained this with practical and structural barriers, which they thought should be better monitored by the organisation and directors.. Conclusion Overall, the results indicate that the scientific evidence for healthcare is not used sufficiently as a base ...

In previous seasons, one team or another has run away from the pack by this point in the season. Last year it was Dallas (until they hit the Golden State buzz saw). But this year, with the exception of Boston running away from the rest of a very weak Atlantic conference, most of the top teams are taking turns beating one another.. It would be the prefect setting for the Rockets to get their act together, as the team in the Western Conference with two starting all-stars. Maybe this last stretch of games has shown they just might.. In the West, San Antonio and Phoenix are in the lead, yet both have looked vulnerable; SA has lost 3 of their last 5, including home losses to Phoenix and Toronto (??). Phoenix has recently been beaten by Dallas and the Lakers on the road. Dallas, next in the standings, lost to Cleveland at home and Utah on the road this week. The top 8 teams are all within 4 games of each other in the Western Conference standings, with the Rockets and Utah 9th and 10th at six games ...
The main organizer, S ren Laugesen is talking about the huge work what Match Racing Denmark has done for this event to be successful. The Marina has almost turned into a Venue for now. All our volunteers are working really hard to make sure that this will be the best organized event that the Melges 24 class sailors have attended. Everything starts when the sailors arrive at the gate - hopefully they loved the designated parking spots for each team, took advantage of the extra lift in the parking area, and enjoyed the trip down to the crane with our little tractors. This clears the pier from parked vehicles, and gives everybody a great opportunity to go directly to the crane. The majority of the measurements went really well and the boats are ready to race ...

The answer is we have been moving to a new server in the UK from one in the USA to try and provide the best service to everyone that visits the site. Normally with a move like this I would expect very little downtime and for the other sites I host that was true but there was a few things that slowed down the transfer of PSN. The biggest problem we had was the new hosting companys support team took a very long time to identify the problem which was for some reason you cant buy a domain name with them from one account and then buy hosting from them on another account and then connect the two to get a working site. The domain name and hosting have to be ether on the same account or the domain name has to be registered to another company and then pointed to the hosting for everything to work. Now Im sure you can forgive me for thinking that if I use the same company for everything it would make life easier but as you can see that is not true and it also took the hosting support team nearly a week ...

Nearly all of the extant literature on NFL betting uses the point "spread" as the wager of interest. The spread is the number of points by which one team (the favorite) is favored over the opponent (the underdog). Suppose team A is favored over team B by 7 points. A wager on team A is successful only if team A wins by more than 7 points (also known as "covering" the spread). Symmetrically, a wager on team B is successful only if team B loses by fewer than 7 points or, of course, team B wins or ties the game-in any of these cases, team B "covers." Vergin (2001) and Gray and Gray (1997) are examples of research that focus on the spread. Based on NFL games from 1976 to 1994, Gray and Gray (1997) find some evidence that the betting spread is not an unbiased predictor of the actual point spread on NFL games. They argue that the spread underestimates home team advantage, and overstates the favorites advantage. They further find that teams who have performed well against the spread in recent games are ...

Hospitalization in an intensive care unit (ICU) can be a frightening and sometimes traumatizing experience for patients. Although engaging the patient and improving communication among the clinical team can positively impact care and the patient experience, the ICU environment can be a challenging place to engage patients.

In order to do my assignment I visited IPE level 2 on UWE on line every workday from the day after the Interprofessional Conference on the 5th of October, the reason to do this was to find information on how to do the self-assignment and to check new announcements, to check course materials, where many of the conferences speakers put their presentation which make it easier to work, to check the facilitator announcements, and to check my table team communication. We have in total 89 messages but I think only very few of them were really useful. I only contributed five times on my table discussion board. After the conference, we tried to meet on line but that was impossible as we have different schedules. Then some of the groups members wanted to change the statements that we already had agreed and decided at the conference. I felt that some members of the group just wanted to do the essay their way, making statements of what they were going to do instead of sharing information. They were not ...

This years Stanley Cup Final concluded with a somewhat surprising outcome. The Vancouver Canucks - who were widely regarded as the leagues best club - were defeated by the underdog Bruins. To those who regard the NHL playoffs as a competition designed to determine the leagues best team, the result can mean only one thing - that the Bruins were the best team all along, and the Canucks mere pretenders. A more reasonable explanation, however, is that shit happens over the course of a seven game series and, because of that, the better team doesnt always win. The Canucks were better than Boston during the regular season, and were likely better in the first three rounds of the playoffs as well. They were better than Boston last year and theres a good chance that theyll do better next year. They were probably the better team. The Canucks may or may not have been the best team in the league, but if they were in fact better than Boston, then that means that a team other than the best team in the ...

Like in the "International Genetically Engineered Machine" (iGEM) competition, you will work in a small team to develop a new biological part, module, or device. Our teams are small, but I expect each team to develop something new - something that does not yet exist in the repository of biological standard parts. This is a very challenging task for the few sessions we have and not necessarily something all teams will be able to accomplish. Therefore, very good planning is required. The better your team plans the entire project from the beginning, the better your chances are being able to complete your project. Since good planning is very important, it will contribute 20% to your grade. Your team has to carefully describe your project on your project homepage and give a presentation during the third week of class. It is up to each team to make a decision which new part to make. However, teams should carefully study the parts list to find something thats not already there. New parts can be as ...
Greetings. We are Linda Cabral and Laura Sefton from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Center for Health Policy and Research. We are part of a multi-disciplinary team evaluating the Massachusetts Patient Centered Medical Home Initiative (MA PCMHI), a 3-year, statewide, multi-site demonstration project engaging 46 primary care practices in organizational transformation to adopt this primary care model of care. Part of the qualitative component to our evaluation included site visits to a select group of practices to interview project-related staff. Given the projects resources, the team was only able to visit 8 sites. So with 46 practices to choose from, how did we go about selecting which 8 to visit?. In order to answer our primary evaluation question - how do practices transform to become medical homes? - we knew that we wanted to visit practices that had transformed substantially, as well as those that had not (to date). Each practice had staff complete the TransforMEDs Medical ...

Team training has become a tradition in healthcare, where it has helped produce significantly positive results in patient safety. It is widely acknowledged that medical teamwork is essential, yet the coordination, communication, and cooperation behind it has never been carefully examined. This book provides a comprehensive study of the science behind improving team performance in the delivery of clinical care.
After stretching, the girls enter the rink and line up their drinks along the plexiglass. Lines painted on the cement floor outline the track. Most leagues play flat track derby instead of the traditional banked track because its cheaper, easier to learn on and results in less injuries. With their coach out of town, volunteer and occasional cameraman Man-O-Pause steps in to lead the teams. After a few warm-up laps the girls do drills like swerving, crouching and stops, practice maneuvers like dick in a box, then do endurance. Man-O-Pause, with a roller derby Bratz doll affixed to his helmet, follows behind the girls and barks orders. The teams are preparing for their February 13th bout, Love Hurts, between the Back Bay Bombshells and the Huntington Heartbreakers. Although each girl is assigned to a specific team, they all practice together, learn the same techniques and occasionally play on teams different than their own to even out the talent, challenging themselves and making the bouts more ...
A week later in my follow up appointment I learnt that my ovarian cancer was active again. This time it didnt come as a complete surprise as it was always probable it would be back at some point. Having gone almost 3 years since my initial diagnosis I was increasingly hoping that I might be one that defied the odds, but confirmation of a relapse quickly brought back home that I was living with a cancer that needed managing. The prospect of treatment felt less daunting, after all Id navigated that previously, I was keen to get going and find out what it meant for the next few months ahead.. As my case needed to be discussed at a multi-disciplinary team meeting I had to wait another 8 days before I knew what lay in store. Again I found that wait incredibly tough - contemplating what lay ahead, whether it would be surgery, more chemo or more worryingly whether the options were potentially exhausted. After hearing the devastating news of the relapse and starting to come to terms with it, the next ...
Responsibilities:. ➔ Shadowing assessments and other members of staff: I was given many opportunities to sit into assessments which measure a persons suitability for psychological therapy. During this, the clinician usually requested me to make notes from which I could make a formulation (see below). As youll be working in a multi-disciplinary team, you will be able to shadow other team professionals such as psychiatrists, occupation therapists and support workers.. ➔ Writing formulations and case histories: Throughout the year, I was involved in planning service user care programmes. Following an assessment, I would use the 5P formulation (Predisposing, Precipitating, Presenting, Protective and Perpetuating factors) to organise the notes and present them to the clinician. Also I was given the task of completing detailed case histories which required reading through their past history and summarising the information into one easy to read document. Both helped in making a decision whether ...
Beckett and Woolhouse have investigated the inequality in access to surgery for individuals with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in England.1 2 They have used the number of patients entered into the National Lung Cancer Audit (NLCA) as a surrogate marker for the specialist qualities of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and concluded that this marker does not influence surgical resection rate or survival.. An MDT with a high number of patients may reflect a high level of experience, but this may not be the case for every MDT. It would be helpful to see the actual numbers of patients per MDT in each quintile and the raw data for survival. Only the largest of MDTs may link to specialist qualities. MDTs reviewing a large number of patients, but outside the top quintile, may reflect those that are under-resourced and struggling to cope.. Other factors that may influence the outcomes of individuals with lung cancer in England may be: access to positron emission tomography scanning, cardiovascular ...

For almost ten years, the research team at UIE has been searching to uncover the secrets behind great designs. As we talk to team after team, a key truth continues to emerge: The best teams communicate internally really well, while those teams that struggle also struggle at their internal communication.. When we think of a team that communicates, the first things that comes to mind are hallway conversations, meetings, and emails. But, as our research continues to show, are only a part of the communication puzzle.. It turns out that one of the differences between the successful teams and the struggling teams is their use of diagrams and maps. Struggling teams almost always try to communicate important design ideas through talking or word-based documents, while the successful teams put a heavy emphasis on diagrams.. Often times, these diagrams become living documents - things the team revisits and updates frequently. And its the process of discussing and modifying that makes the inherent design ...
Dont discount high stress. The leading cause of high practice stress is outdated systems. When you have bad systems, chaos reigns. Upset patients yell at the front desk and then storm out of the practice. The clinical team hurries from patient to patient, but can never catch up because theres always another late patient to see.

BACKGROUND: Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) have decreased significantly over the last decade. Further reductions in CLABSI rates should be possible. We describe a multidisciplinary approach to the reduction of CLABSIs. METHODS: This was an observational study of critically ill patients requiring central venous catheters in 8 intensive care units in a tertiary medical center. We implemented a catheter bundle that included hand hygiene, education of providers, chlorhexidine skin preparation, use of maximum barrier precautions, a dedicated line cart, checklist, avoidance of the femoral vein for catheter insertion, chlorhexidine-impregnated dressings, use of anti-infective catheters, and daily consideration of the need for the catheter. Additional measures included root cause analyses of all CLABSIs, creation of a best practice atlas for internal jugular catheters, and enhanced education on blood culture collection. Data were analyzed using the Poisson test and regression. RESULTS:
