Assessment of competence to complete advance directives: validation of a patient centred approach. (1/1134)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a patient centred approach for the assessment of competence to complete advance directives ("living wills") of elderly people with cognitive impairment. DESIGN: Semistructured interviews. SETTING: Oxfordshire. SUBJECTS: 50 elderly volunteers living in the community, and 50 patients with dementia on first referral from primary care. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Psychometric properties of competence assessment. RESULTS: This patient centred approach for assessing competence to complete advance directives can discriminate between elderly persons living in the community and elderly patients with dementia. The procedure has good interrater (r=0.95) and test-retest (r=0.97) reliability. Validity was examined by relating this approach with a global assessment of competence to complete an advance directive made by two of us (both specialising in old age psychiatry). The data were also used to determine the best threshold score for discriminating between those competent and those incompetent to complete an advance directive. CONCLUSION: A patient centred approach to assess competence to complete advance directives can be reliably and validly used in routine clinical practice.  (+info)

Putting continuous quality improvement into accreditation: improving approaches to quality assessment. (2/1134)

The accreditation systems of the United States, Canada, and Australia have been restructured to reflect the adoption by health services of the industrial model of continuous quality improvement. The industrial model of quality makes assumptions about management structures and the relation of process to outcome which are not readily transferable to the assessment of quality in health care. The accreditation systems have therefore had to adapt the principles of continuous quality improvement to reflect the complex nature of health service organisations and the often untested assumptions about the relation between process and outcome.  (+info)

Goal attainment scaling in a geriatric day hospital. Team and program benefits. (3/1134)

PROBLEM BEING ADDRESSED: The Geriatric Day Program (GDP) of the Capital Health Region in Victoria, BC, is concerned with effective team processes, accountability for health service outcomes, and improving the quality of programs. The GDP identified a need to improve its interdisciplinary processes and generate useful patient outcome data. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To determine whether Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) could be introduced to facilitate interdisciplinary processes and to generate useful health outcome data. MAIN COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: The GAS procedures were incorporated into clinical routines based on published guidelines. The authors determined GAS outcome scores for patients who completed the program and developed outcome scores for specific geriatric problem areas requiring intervention. Outcome scores were made available to the clinical care team and to program managers for continuous quality improvement purposes. CONCLUSIONS: The GAS process was successfully implemented and was acceptable to clinicians and managers at the GDP. Team processes were thought to be improved by focusing on patient goals in a structured way. The GAS provided data on both patient outcomes and outcomes of interventions in specific problem areas. Accountability for patient care increased. Goal Attainment Scaling provided indicators of care for which clinicians could develop program quality improvements.  (+info)

Prescribing psychotropic medication for elderly patients: some physicians' perspectives. (4/1134)

BACKGROUND: The inappropriate use of psychotropic medication is widespread and has potential consequences for the autonomy of elderly people. This study explored physicians' perceptions and attitudes and the decision-making process associated with prescribing psychotropic medications for elderly patients. METHODS: In this qualitative study conducted between February and April 1996, 9 of 12 physicians who offered consultation services for elderly people in private apartment buildings in a suburban region of Montreal were interviewed. The transcripts of the interviews were analysed quantitatively using an iterative process. The authors assessed the physicians' perceptions of the elderly patient population, the decision-making process leading to the prescription of psychotropic medication and the nature of follow-up. RESULTS: All of the physicians interviewed perceived the aging process as a negative experience and stated that the long-term use of psychotropic medication is justified by the distress of their aging patients and the few negative side effects that are noticed. Most said that, when they re-prescribe, they see their role as a "gatekeeper" to monitor and control the type and quantity of medication prescribed. Most physicians felt that the solutions to the inappropriate prescribing of psychotropic medication were beyond the scope of the individual physician. INTERPRETATION: Physicians interviewed in this study had a patient-centered perspective. From a public health viewpoint this calls for an innovative approach to involve physicians in a multidisciplinary intervention strategy to examine the inappropriate use of psychotropic medication among elderly patients.  (+info)

Clinical interventions and outcomes of One-to-One midwifery practice. (5/1134)

BACKGROUND: Changing Childbirth became policy for the maternity services in England in 1994 and remains policy. One-to-One midwifery was implemented to achieve the targets set. It was the first time such a service had been implemented in the Health Service. An evaluation was undertaken to compare its performance with conventional maternity care. METHODS: This was a prospective comparative study of women receiving One-to-One care and women receiving the system of care that One-to-One replaced (conventional care) to compare achievement of continuity of carer and clinical outcomes. The evaluation took place in The Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust, the Queen Charlotte's and Hammersmith Hospitals. This was part of a larger study, which included the evaluation of women's responses, cost implications, and clinical standards and staff reactions. The participants were all those receiving One-to-One midwifery practice (728 women), which was confined to two postal districts, and all women receiving care in the system that One-to-One replaced, in two adjacent postal districts (675 women), and expecting to give birth between 15 August 1994 and 14 August 1995. Main outcome measures were achievement of continuity of care, rates of interventions in labour, length of labour, maternal and infant morbidity, and breastfeeding rates. RESULTS: A high degree of continuity was achieved through the whole process of maternity care. One-to-One women saw fewer staff at each stage of their care, knew more of the staff who they did see, and had a high level of constant support in labour. One-to-One practice was associated with a significant reduction in the use of epidural anaesthesia (odds ratio (OR) 95 per cent confidence interval (CI) = 0.59 (0.44, 0.80)), with lower rates of episiotomy and perineal lacerations (OR 95 per cent CI = 0.70 (0.50, 0.98)), and with shorter second stage labour (median 40 min vs 48 min). There were no statistically significant differences in operative and assisted delivery or breastfeeding rates. CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms that One-to-One midwifery practice can provide a high degree of continuity of carer, and is associated with a reduction in the rate of a number of interventions, without compromising safety of care. It should be extended locally and replicated in other services under continuing evaluation.  (+info)

The economics and challenges of breast cancer in a managed care environment. Based on a presentation by Alan H. Heaton, PharmD. (6/1134)

Breast cancer and its population effect are inseparable. One of the challenges managed care organizations (MCOs) face is instilling the idea that patients are part of a population, and in turn, that population is composed of patients. Therefore, there is a need to treat both patients individually and populations as a whole. Because breast cancer, like other major illnesses, involves large-scale expenditures for drugs, pharmaceutical benefit management companies are working with MCOs to look not only at drug costs but at global healthcare expenditures. Whereas treatment of breast cancer has direct costs to a healthcare plan, it is associated with a great deal of comorbidity as well. In dealing with such potential financial exposure, the challenge to health plans is to find individuals at risk, enable them to access the healthcare system, and see that they get proper care. A proactive communications effort involving such media as patient newsletters and a website can educate healthplan members, thereby facilitating the self-assessment of risk factors.  (+info)

The virtue of nursing: the covenant of care. (7/1134)

It is argued that the current confusion about the role and purpose of the British nurse is a consequence of the modern rejection and consequent fragmentation of the inherited nursing tradition. The nature of this tradition, in which nurses were inducted into the moral virtues of care, is examined and its relevance to patient welfare is demonstrated. Practical suggestions are made as to how this moral tradition might be reappropriated and reinvigorated for modern nursing.  (+info)

On becoming non-judgmental: some difficulties for an ethics of counselling. (8/1134)

The growth in the availability of counselling services has been accompanied by growing concern about the conduct of counsellors, which in turn has led to the expressed need for an ethics of counselling. This paper will argue that there is an inherent tension between this need and the central tenets of one variety of counselling, client-centred counselling. The tension is identifiable on the basis of an inquiry into the nature of moral judgment which results in the recognition of the implicit value base in client-centred counselling. It is only when this value base is made explicit that any adequate ethics of counselling becomes a viable possibility.  (+info)

Patient-Centered Medical Home in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Gabriel Ortiz1, Len Fromer21Pediatric Pulmonary Services, El Paso, TX; 2Department of Family Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USAAbstract: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive and debilitating but preventable and treatable disease characterized by cough, phlegm, dyspnea, and fixed or incompletely reversible airway obstruction. Most patients with COPD rely on primary care practices for COPD management. Unfortunately, only about 55% of US outpatients with COPD receive all guideline-recommended care. Proactive and consistent primary care for COPD, as for many other chronic diseases, can reduce hospitalizations. Optimal chronic disease management requires focusing on maintenance rather than merely acute rescue. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), which implements the chronic care model, is a promising framework for primary care transformation. This review presents core PCMH

Overview: Given the range of skills required to successfully manage and cope with atopic dermatitis (AD), multidisciplinary interventions have been developed to transfer necessary knowledge and tools to patients, with the aim of improving outcomes such as disease control, adherence, and quality of life. We review the evidence for different approaches to multidisciplinary interventions in atopic dermatitis for adults with severe AD and emphasize the common elements of successful programs. This activity will serve to educate healthcare professionals on the emergence of new agents and clinical data within the therapeutic area. Continuing education will improve the clinicians knowledge of AD and its treatment, allowing for appropriate use of medication, improved patient-centered communication and adherence, and enhanced health-related quality of life. Due to the complexities of the disease, a multidisciplinary, patient-centered management approach is ideal for the patient with AD ...
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a primary care model that provides coordinated and comprehensive care to patients to improve health outcomes. This paper addresses practical issues that arise when transitioning a traditional primary care practice into a PCMH recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). Individual organizations experiences with this transition were gathered at a PCMH workshop in Alexandria, Virginia in June 2010. An analysis of their experiences has been used along with a literature review to reveal common challenges that must be addressed in ways that are responsive to the practice and patients’ needs. These are: NCQA guidance, promoting provider buy-in, leveraging electronic medical records, changing office culture, and realigning workspace in the practice to accommodate services needed to carry out the intent of PCMH. The NCQA provides a set of standards for implementing the PCMH model, but these standards lack many specifics that will be

In 2013, Governor Kasich convened a CEO-level Advisory Council on Payment Innovation to help transform Ohio from volume-based fee-for-service payments to value-based payments that reward better health outcomes. The council identified experts to assist the state in designing value-based payment models that (1) support patient-centered medical homes and (2) reduce the incentive to overuse unnecessary services within high-cost episodes of care. Together, these models have the potential to benefit up to 90 percent of the states population by paying for what works to maintain and improve health while holding down the total cost of care.. In December 2014, Ohio was awarded a federal State Innovation Model (SIM) test grant to implement a payment model that increases access to patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) statewide as well as to implement an episode-based payment model statewide..

The drive toward value-based care is requiring the healthcare industry to make a 180-degree turn from where we were just a few years ago. Were moving away from a system focused on treating sickness to one that strives for wellness; from encouraging volume to demanding value; from filling beds to penalizing readmissions; and finally, from a system centered on the provider to one that rightfully revolves around the patient.. This new environment demands care that places the patients needs at the forefront. One area where this patient-centered approach is sorely lacking is measure sets. The majority of measures used today are process-based and understandably focus on whether clinicians adhere to established standards of care. But an overabundance of these measures shifts the care teams focus away from patient-centered care and outcomes and instead has them concentrating on complying with the processes. To keep patients at the center, we must also have condition-specific outcomes measures that ...
Nowadays, many people around the world are seeing their lives being shattered and even shortened due to one or more chronic conditions. Chronic illness is a dynamic ongoing process that is determined by a complexity of factors. Patient literacy, motivation, emotional well-being, and resources play an important role on patient adaption and are important challenges for healthcare providers. A systematic patient-centered approach that enables chronic patients to play an active role in their condition management and in the decision-making process on a day-to-day basis is required. However, some studies show that health professionals do not always guide their actions by Patient-centered orientation, either by personal issues or by professional and/or institutional barriers. The present chapter aimed to provide a comprehensive approach to patient-centered care in chronic disease and offer a structured guideline as a tool for formal academic education in chronic patient-centered care. This chapter is
The Nurse Practice Development Unit recognizes the need to continually improve the Standards of healthcare & the clinical learning environment in order to promote high quality, safe care to patients and support students to achieve their potential. Progress has been made with many advances facilitating an improved patient journey e.g. nurse prescribing, leading in uncertain times and policies guiding optimal care delivery. The underlying drivers in this process are Clinical Care Programmes, national standards, NMBI, learning from adverse incidences, feedback from patients, nursing staff and undergraduate nursing students. Enabling and sustaining change is the heart of practice development and we aim to achieve this using creative and innovative ways of engaging with and motivating staff. The NPDU are responsible for co-ordinating the clinical components of the BSc General nursing and BSc Integrated Childrens & General nursing undergraduate degree programmes, ensuring an optimal clinical learning ...
Historical luminaries such as Hippocrates and Osler exhorted physicians to place the patients interests above their own, and to consider patient values for medical decision-making. Nevertheless, only in recent decades has the medical profession begun to shift from a paternalistic doctor knows best stance towards one explicitly endorsing patient-centered, evidence-based, [50-52] shared decision-making [53-55]. The growing strength of patient-orientated shared decision-making in the U.S. is exemplified by the focus on patient-centered medical homes, [56, 57] the emphasis on patient-oriented evidence that matters (POEMs), [58-60] and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) [61]. In the U.K., the importance of patient-oriented decision-making is highlighted in the Equity and Excellence NHS white paper and in the National Health Service Constitution [62, 63]. Following these directives, the NICE lipid guidelines state, Treatment and care should take into account individual needs ...

104 A LOOK TO THE FUTURE Profile: Incorporating Routine Behavioral Health Screenings Into the Patient-Centered Medical Home Background Management of chronic diseases can be challenging in primary care,
Patient-centeredness is necessary for quality of care. Wide-spread incorporation of patient-centered practices across the health system is challenging in low and middle income countries (LMICs) given the complexity of scarce resources, competing priorities and rapidly changing social, economic and political landscapes. Health service managers and policy makers in these settings would benefit from a framework that allows comprehension and anticipation of forthcoming challenges for optimizing patient-centeredness in healthcare delivery. We set out to formulate such a framework, based primarily on analysis of general patterns of healthcare system evolution in LMICs and the current literature. We suggest that optimization of patient-centeredness in LMICs can be thought of as occurring in four phases, in accordance to particular patterns of macro transitions. Phase I is characterized by a deeply fragmented system based on conventional clinical approaches, dealing primarily with simple acute conditions. In
A large number of taxonomies are used to rate the quality of an individual study and the strength of a recommendation based on a body of evidence. We have developed a new grading scale that will be used by several family medicine and primary care journals (required or optional), with the goal of allowing readers to learn one taxonomy that will apply to many sources of evidence. Our scale is called the Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy. It addresses the quality, quantity, and consistency of evidence and allows authors to rate individual studies or bodies of evidence. The taxonomy is built around the information mastery framework, which emphasizes the use of patient-oriented outcomes that measure changes in morbidity or mortality. An A-level recommendation is based on consistent and good-quality patient-oriented evidence; a B-level recommendation is based on inconsistent or limited-quality patient-oriented evidence; and a C-level recommendation is based on consensus, usual practice, opinion, disease

By Elisabeth M. Oehrlein, PhD, MS, Senior Director, Research and Programs. Patient-centered research and care focuses on outcomes that are most important to patients, which often are about how they feel or function. Measures often need be developed to capture meaningful data on these kinds of outcomes in clinical trials for drug approval. The second webinar in our Clinical Outcome Assessment (COA) series introduces participants to the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) Roadmap to Patient-Focused Outcome Measurement in Clinical Trials. The Roadmap (in the picture below) was developed by the FDA to help researchers understand and then develop new or adapt existing tools to measure these important outcomes. This webinar features Laurie Burke, RPh, MPH, Founder, LORA Group LLC and Former Director of FDAs Study Endpoints and Labeling Development group, where she led FDAs COA team and developed the Roadmap..

Patients are very much at the center of what FDA does, and the agency has long sought input from patients and caregivers regarding their treatment options and needs. For many years, FDA has included the patient perspective at advisory committee meetings and during the review of new medical products in selected meetings with FDA and product developers.. More recently, FDA has encouraged and fostered the use of patient-reported outcome measures in clinical trials, such as impact on quality of life or pain control, to support labeling claims in medical product development. We are excited about our current efforts to expand the role of the patient perspective: the agencys Patient-Focused Drug Development initiative. Part of FDAs commitment under thefifth authorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA V), this initiative will gather patients perspectives on the impact of a condition on daily life and the available therapies to treat that condition.

An analysis of 282 primary care consultations and 163 diagnostic episodes has identified a process called inductive foraging that has been shown to precede the formulation of specific hypotheses.5,16 This process is the initial invitation to the patient to describe his orher problem. Usually, it goes far beyond the patient stating what is subsequently recorded as the presenting complaint. Patients spontaneously mention further symptoms, functional associations, and often also their own explanations or concerns. If they are allowed to do so without interference, they will lead their clinician to symptoms and problems as they perceive them, and will thus provide an exploration of the problem space.. To give some examples, a 63-year-old man with tiredness and depressed mood mentions to me his recent difficulties buttoning his shirt, thus providing a hint for early Parkinson disease. A 67-year-old retired plumber reports frequent episodes of cough in the recent past. Pondering whether to order ...
To establish medical homes, primary care providers must significantly restructure their practices to ensure care is offered in the most convenient and efficient way possible, institute new scheduling procedures, train staff for team-based roles, and engage patients in a new paradigm of care, according to a case study on the Veterans Health Administrations (VA) initiative to build patient-centered medical homes. In 2010, VA launched a program to create patient-centered medical homes in more than 900 primary care clinics over a 3-year period. In addition to improving chronic disease management, VAs initiative aims to increase access to care, intensify preventive health services, and improve coordination of care as patients move from primary care to specialty care providers and between the VA and private health care systems. VA modeled its approach on those developed in other integrated health care deliv-ery systems, including Kaiser Permanente, Geisinger Health System, and Duke University ...
That being said, the writing committee notes throughout the document that patients need to be informed and engaged in their own care. Patient preference is very important in terms of directing care, so the answer may not be the same for every patient, said Julius M. Gardin, MD, FACC, of Hackensack University Medical Center and vice chair of the writing committee. Additionally, to provide quality care, we need to consistently devote time to each patient to educate them about the things that they can do in terms of self-care - stopping smoking, watching their diet, losing weight, getting regular exercise and taking their medications as prescribed.. The writing committee also took a stance on when to use more invasive strategies. For the vast majority of patients with stable disease - even those with considerable ischemia - medical management is warranted before considering revascularization by placing a stent in the blocked artery or through surgical bypass grafting.

Figure 2 Antihyperglycemic therapy in type 2 diabetes: general recommendations. Moving from the top to the bottom of the figure, potential sequences of antihyperglycemic therapy. In most patients, begin with lifestyle changes; metformin monotherapy is added at, or soon after, diagnosis (unless there are explicit contraindications). If the HbA1c target is not achieved after ∼3 months, consider one of the five treatment options combined with metformin: a sulfonylurea, TZD, DPP-4 inhibitor, GLP-1 receptor agonist, or basal insulin. (The order in the chart is determined by historical introduction and route of administration and is not meant to denote any specific preference.) Choice is based on patient and drug characteristics, with the over-riding goal of improving glycemic control while minimizing side effects. Shared decision making with the patient may help in the selection of therapeutic options. The figure displays drugs commonly used both in the U.S. and/or Europe. Rapid-acting ...

Kavas beneficial effects as a natural therapy with few side effects have become internationally contentious. 1 Reports of potentially fatal liver toxicity observed in patients who used kava-based products, or extracts of kava, 2, 3 led to the withdrawal of kavabased therapies from sale in Germany, France, Switzerland and the United Kingdom in late 20011 and now Canada in 2002. 4 Medical alerts have been issued in the United States. 5 In Australia, kava products are the subject of a voluntary recall alert. 6 This was in response to a recent report of a Melbourne woman aged 56 who died despite a liver transplant for fulminant hepatic failure. She had been otherwise well prior to this. For 3-4 months before the onset of liver failure she had been taking five herbal remedies, one of which contained kava. While these controversies were evolving, Aboriginal people in Arnhem Land have ...

Our collective experience suggests that successful implementation of a patient- and stakeholder- engaged research paradigm involves: (1) defining the roles and process for the incorporation of input; (2) identifying the particular patients and stakeholders to build a foundation of key stakeholders who appropriately represent the target treatment population and its caregivers; (3) engaging patients and stakeholders so they appreciate the value of their own participation and have personal investment in the research process; and (4) overcoming barriers and challenges that arise and threaten the productivity of the collaboration. Engaging patients may include educating them so they understand the research process and how it is connected to changes in clinical practice, and are therefore equipped to make meaningful contributions (31). Foundations of trust and mutual respect are key elements to being able to successfully navigate all of the foreseeable and unforeseeable challenges that present ...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a highly prevalent, but undertreated atherosclerotic disease with a disproportionately poor cardiovascular prognosis, as compared with other cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac events are, however, only one manifestation of PAD. Patients health status (symptoms, function, and quality of life) are critical outcomes from patients perspectives. To date, there have been no systematic prospective evaluations of disease-specific health status outcomes in PAD and how these vary by treatment and patient characteristics. The long-term goal of our work is to create an evidence-based multi-modal PAD management program that can be individualized to each patient. Following our preparatory work in Pilot PCORI grant 1 IP2 PI000753-01, the current proposal will develop a multi-center observational registry called PORTRAIT (Patient-centered Outcomes Related to Treatment Practices in peripheral Arterial disease: Investigating Trajectories). PORTRAIT will prospectively define ...
Abstract (from Health Affairs): Medicines current evidence base is insufficient for many of the decisions made daily by clinicians, patients, purchasers, and policy makers. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) represents an effort by the US government to address this shortcoming by funding comparative effectiveness research (CER). Prioritizing that research will be a critical first step. To better understand components of an optimal process, NPC reviewed the literature and conducted interviews regarding the prioritization efforts of leading public and private health organizations in the United States and abroad. From this review, NPC proposes a framework for prioritization, poses and answers key questions, and makes recommendations regarding application of that framework. NPC also recommends that during the priority-setting process, there should be transparent conversations among those who make decisions about the priorities and the public.. ...

Patient-centered care (PCC) is a main determinant of care quality. Research has shown that PCC is a multi-dimensional concept, and organizations that provide PCC well report better patient and organizational outcomes. However, little is known about the relative importance of PCC dimensions. The aim of this study was therefore to investigate the relative importance of the eight dimensions of PCC according to hospital-based healthcare professionals, and examine whether their viewpoints are determined by context. Thirty-four healthcare professionals (16 from the geriatrics department, 15 from a surgical intensive care unit, 3 quality employees) working at a large teaching hospital in New York City were interviewed using Q methodology. Participants were asked to rank 35 statements representing eight dimensions of PCC extracted from the literature: patient preferences, physical comfort, coordination of care, emotional support, access to care, continuity and transition, information and education and family

Four primary care medical societies recently released guidelines for accrediting patient-centered medical homes that would prohibit nurse practitioners (NPs) from taking the lead in this new model for delivering care, says a Medscape Medical News article. Groups that currently accredit or recognize practices as medical homes are the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, and URAC, formerly known as the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission. The Joint Commission plans to unveil a similar program later this year.. The physicians societies are urging these groups to incorporate a set of medical home principles adopted by the 4 primary care societies in 2007. A principle in the guidelines that physicians should lead the medical home team of clinicians is a point of controversy because NPs also aspire to direct such teams, the article says. The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care agrees with the primary care medical ...
SAN FRANCISCO - The patient-centered studys premise was straightforward: Since there is a definite link between parents psychosocial stress levels and asthma suffered by inner city kids, if you provide stressed-out parents effective coping skills, would kids take their medicines more regularly and would their health improve?. A $2.2 million, first-of-its kind randomized study found no differences between kids with asthma who received standard care based on National Institutes of Health (NIH) guidelines compared with kids whose parents received stress-mitigation techniques in addition to evidence-based asthma care. The stress-mitigation techniques were designed by a team at Childrens National Health System funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.. While it is somewhat disappointing that we did not demonstrate a treatment effect from the parental stress-mitigation techniques, the good news for children suffering from asthma is that all study participants experienced ...

Background: In line with patient-centered health care, it is necessary to understand patients perceptions of health. How stroke survivors perceive their health at different time points after stroke and which factors are associated with these feelings provide important information about relevant rehabilitation targets. Objective. This study aimed to identify the independent factors of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) from a biopsychosocial perspective using the methods of multivariate regression at 3 different time points poststroke. Methods. Included in the study were 99 patients from stroke units with diagnosed first-ever stroke. At admission and at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 1 year poststroke, HRQoL was assessed using the EuroQoL-5D Visual Analogue Scale (EQ-5D VAS). Consequences in Body Functions and Activities and Participation, and Environmental Factors were documented using 155 categories of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Core Set for ...
Effectiveness and implementation trials additionally provide key records.

CHERYL BUSHNELL: Im going to start out by just mentioning that this study Im going to tell you about was funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. And if those of you who are not familiar with PCORI, it was actually a part of the Affordable Care Act. And so without getting too political, we do know that the Affordable Care Act is probably not going to be around much longer. I think the question is whether the funding for important research like if pragmatic trials and effectiveness will still continue. So on that note, were only going to get more positive from there. So my objective today is to help you understand what population health is this is a relatively new concept. Honestly, four or five years ago, I had no idea what this was but. Its now really a buzzword in all health systems. And just talk about how population health and stroke care and across the continuum is a really important facet of value based care. And then Ill also talk about the gaps and challenges with ...

Objective: This paper reports on patients perspectives on the nurse management of hypertension following consultation training, elicited as part of a randomised controlled study. Method: Telephone interviews were conducted with 16 patients in an intervention group (IG) and eight patients in a control group (CG), 3 years after nurses consultation training in primary health care. By means of a 3-day course, nurses were educated in patient centredness, Motivational Interviewing, the Stages of Change model, guidelines for cardiovascular prevention, lifestyle changes and pharmacological treatment. In addition, they took part in video-recorded consultation training with simulated patients. A specially designed educational booklet was developed for patients in the IG. Results: Of the 16 patients in the IG, 13 reported that their views and former experiences were taken into account and all eight patients in the CG reported the same. Patients in the IG reported that the nurse listened and they had been ...

Union Health Center, in Chelsea, is not a typical low-income health clinic. The waiting area is beautiful, but no one enjoys it for very long - in fact, a sign asks patients to speak up if they have waited for more than 15 minutes, because something is wrong. The staff move efficiently, but no one seems rushed. They take time to listen, a patient said, before being summoned by a member of the Green Team.. Teams are a central feature of Unions practice, which has adopted a model of care known as the patient-centered medical home, or PCMH. Over the past few years, the model has been endorsed by leading physician organizations, state Medicaid programs, and many healthcare policy experts. Proponents say it offers a blueprint for fixing a broken primary care system.. The medical home saves money, but it also makes physicians happier, said Mary Takach, who tracks PCMH initiatives at the National Academy of State Healthcare Policy. Its supposed to make the job easier, and its supposed to make ...

A working paper titled The Economics of Patient-Centered Care found that implementation choice for a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) affects performance, suggesting that generally unobserved features of primary care reorganization influence patient outcomes. A research group at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania notably had unique access to both patient-level claims data from Independence Blue Cross of Philadelphia and detailed National Committee for Quality Assurance data on specific capabilities for medical home practices.. The PCMH care delivery model is seen as a way to transform primary care for the better, but the evidence regarding the models impacts on patient experience, utilization and expenditures remains mixed. Adopting new models of care like PCMH requires implementation strategies to successfully revamp care delivery in your organization. To learn which strategies organizations should take, check out the Expert Insight: Sg2 Strategic Countdown: The Case ...

According to the most recent data from the 2011-12 NSCH, 54.4 percent of children were reported to receive care in a medical home. However, rates of medical home access varied by special health care need status, with less than half (46.8 percent) of CSHCN reported to have a medical home compared to 56.3 percent of children without such needs. These rates reflect parent-report of five measurable components of medical home: personal health care provider; usual source of sick and well care; receipt of family-centered care; referrals for doctors or health services if needed; and receipt of care coordination if more than one service was used in the past year.1 In 2011-12, CSHCN were slightly more likely to have a personal health care provider or usual place for sick and routine care (approximately 93 percent) compared to 89.7 percent and 91.0 percent, respectively, of children without such needs. In contrast, sizable disparities were observed for both receipt of needed referrals and care ...
As a member of the AUC technical panel, I am familiar with the reasoning that underlies the matrix constructed for stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD): according to the COURAGE trial, there should be no incremental survival benefit to a stent versus optimal medical therapy in my patients circumstances despite greater cost. But are body and greenback counts the only endpoints we should recognize? Reducing or eliminating symptoms and enhancing quality of life (irrespective of whether the symptoms are disabling or if medical therapy has been attempted first) are important from our patients perspective and ought to be part of the decision-making process. Why shouldnt patients participate in defining the goals of their treatment? And, why should physicians have to choose between serving the patients expectations or violating the AUC criteria? Shouldnt these be on a parallel path? From my patients viewpoint, the treatment strategy I advised was truly a patient-centered approach, and one he ...
by Srinidhi Lakhanigam, BSN, RN, CCRN, CMSRN , Dec 14, 2017 , Blog, Magazine, Minority and Community Health, Nursing Students , 0 comments. One of the most commonly heard phrases right from day one of nursing school is critical thinking. The common consensus is that everyone has to develop sound critical thinking in order to be a safe and effective, registered nurse (RN). This necessity is magnified when it comes to critical care areas where one decision by the RN can change the patients outcome. Nursing has changed from a simple caregiving job to a complex and highly responsible profession. Hence, the role of nurses has changed from being task-oriented to a team-based, patient-centered approach with an emphasis on positive outcomes. Strong critical thinking skills will have the greatest impact on patient outcomes.. So, what is critical thinking and how do we develop this? A precise definition was proposed in a statement by Michael Scriven and Richard Paul at the Eighth Annual International ...
