Relationships between various attitudes towards self-determination in health care with special reference to an advance directive. (1/2029)

OBJECTIVES: The subject of patient self-determination in health care has gained broad interest because of the increasing number of incompetent patients. In an attempt to solve the problems related to doctors' decision making in such circumstances, advance directives have been developed. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between public attitudes towards patient autonomy and advance directives. SUBJECTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A stratified random sample of 600 adults in northern Sweden was surveyed by a questionnaire with a response rate of 78.2%. The subjects were asked about their wish for control of their health care, their concerns about health care, their treatment preferences in a life-threatening situation (both reversible and irreversible), and their attitudes towards the application of advance directives. RESULTS: Numerous relationships between various aspects of self-determination in health care (desire for control, fears of over-treatment, and choice of treatment level) in general and advance directives, in particular, were found. Those who wanted to have a say in their health care (about 94%) also mainly supported the use of an advance directive. CONCLUSIONS: The fact that almost 30% of the respondents were undecided concerning their personal use of advance directives points to a lack of knowledge and to the necessity of education of the public on these issues.  (+info)

Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. (2/2029)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

Diabetes care: who are the experts? (3/2029)

OBJECTIVES: To identify issues that patients and professionals consider important in diabetes care and differences in their priorities for care and to determine patients' and professionals' judgements of the relative importance of their chosen priorities. DESIGN: Structured group interviews using the nominal group technique. SETTING: Five district health authorities on Tyneside. SUBJECTS: Five nominal groups: expert (seven), non-expert (seven) health care professionals; insulin dependent (four), non-insulin dependent patients (eight); and carers of diabetic patients (eight). MAIN MEASURES: Items important in diabetes care to each nominal group (themes of care), ranked into a series of "top 10" items for each group, and allocated a score according to relative importance to individual members; scores were standardised by individual weighting and group weighting for comparison within and between groups. RESULTS: Patients and professionals agreed that information given to patients, interaction between professionals and patients, patient autonomy, and access were important for good diabetes care, but the importance assigned to each differed. Thus the professionals emphasised empathy and aspects of good communication and patients the desire to know enough to live a "normal" life. Differences were also found within the patient groups; these related to changes in patients' needs at specific points in the development of their illness and in their orientations to care. CONCLUSION: Patients differ from professionals in their orientation to diabetes care, and they can, and should, be involved in setting priorities for care. Since these priorities are dynamic further work is needed to explore the nature of patient satisfaction with diabetes care.  (+info)

User fees and patient behaviour: evidence from Niamey National Hospital. (4/2029)

Evidence is presented on the effects of price changes on the delay before seeking care and on referral status in a sample of hospital patients in Niger. Price changes are measured as differences across patients at one hospital in whether or not they pay for care, rather than as differences in prices across several hospitals. User fees are charged, but the fee system allows exemptions for some payor categories such as government employees, students, and indigent patients. Evidence is also presented on the effect of income on the delay before seeking care and referral status. The analysis demonstrates a technical point on whether household consumption or current income is a more appropriate measure of income. The analysis shows that user fees affect patient behaviour, but the effects are not the same for outpatients and inpatients. Outpatients who pay for care wait longer before seeking care, but inpatients do not. Inpatients who pay for care are more likely to be referred, but outpatients are not. Patients with more income wait less time to seek care and are less likely to be referred than other patients. Further, household consumption explains patient behaviour better than current income.  (+info)

Knowledge, attitudes and practices during a community-level ivermectin distribution campaign in Guatemala. (5/2029)

Community acceptance and participation are essential for the success of mass ivermectin chemotherapy programmes for onchocerciasis (river blindness). To explore the local understanding of the purpose of ivermectin and willingness to continue taking the drug, we performed questionnaire surveys in four communities with hyperendemic onchocerciasis after each of three ivermectin treatment rounds. More than 100 respondents participated in each KAP survey, representing the heads of 30% of the households in each community. The respondents rarely stated that the goal of the ivermectin treatment programme was to prevent visual loss. Instead, they said they were taking the drug for their general well-being, to cure the onchocercal nodule (filaria), or to cure the microfilaria, a term newly introduced by agents of the treatment programme. The principal reason identified for refusal to take ivermectin was anxiety about drug-related adverse reactions, and there were marked differences between communities in acceptance of treatment. In one community over 50% of residents initially refused to take ivermectin, although participation rates improved somewhat after programmatic adjustments. We recommend that ivermectin distribution programmes establish surveillance activities to detect where acceptance is poor, so that timely and community-specific adjustments may be devised to improve participation.  (+info)

Adapting total quality management for general practice: evaluation of a programme. (6/2029)

OBJECTIVE: Assessment of the benefits and limitations of a quality improvement programme based on total quality management principles in general practice over a period of one year (October 1993-4). DESIGN: Questionnaires to practice team members before any intervention and after one year. Three progress reports completed by facilitators at four month intervals. Semistructured interviews with a sample of staff from each practice towards the end of the year. SETTING: 18 self selected practices from across the former Oxford Region. Three members of each practice received an initial residential course and three one day seminars during the year. Each practice was supported by a facilitator from their Medical Audit Advisory Group. MEASURES: Extent of understanding and implementation of quality improvement methodology. Number, completeness, and evaluation of quality improvement projects. Practice team members' attitudes to and involvement in team working and quality improvement. RESULTS: 16 of the 18 practices succeeded in implementing the quality improvement methods. 48 initiatives were considered and staff involvement was broad. Practice members showed increased involvement in, and appreciation of, strategic planning and team working, and satisfaction from improved patients services. 11 of the practices intend to continue with the methodology. The commonest barrier expressed was time. CONCLUSION: Quality improvement programmes based on total quality management principles produce beneficial changes in service delivery and team working in most general practices. It is incompatible with traditional doctor centred practice. The methodology needs to be adapted for primary care to avoid quality improvement being seen as separate from routine activity, and to save time.  (+info)

Incorporating patients' voices in the audit process. (7/2029)

Obtaining patients' views about their experiences of care should be an integral part of clinical audit. The importance of listening to patients as an aspect of quality can be attributed, in part, to the growth of consumerism in health care, and this in turn has led to the widespread use of satisfaction surveys to obtain patients' views. This paper raises some doubts about current methods for assessing patient satisfaction, and recommends the use of qualitative methods to capture patients' voices in audit.  (+info)

Understanding lay perspectives: care options for STD treatment in Lusaka, Zambia. (8/2029)

Understanding lay persons' perceptions of STD care is critical in the design and implementation of appropriate health services. Using 20 unstructured group interviews, 10 focus group discussions and 4 STD case simulations in selected sub-populations in Lusaka, we investigated lay person perspectives of STD services. The study revealed a large diversity of care options for STD in the communities, including self-care, traditional healers, medicine sold in the markets and streets, injections administered in the compounds, private clinics, health centres and hospital. The factors identified as influencing care seeking behaviour are: lay referral mechanisms, social cost, availability of care options, economics, beliefs, stigma and quality of care as perceived by the users.  (+info)

AIMS: To explore nurses views of patient participation in nursing care on medical wards. BACKGROUND: Nurses have frequent contact with patients, highlighting their potential role in enabling patient participation. However, some nurses actions and attitudes act as barriers, failing to achieve core requirements of patient participation. Discovering nurses views may assist in developing strategies to encourage patient participation in hospitals. DESIGN: Interpretive study. METHODS: Twenty nurses were recruited from four medical wards, located in two Australian hospitals. In-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted between November 2013-March 2014 and analysed using content analysis. FINDINGS: Five categories emerged from the nurses views. The first category, acknowledging patients as partners, showed nurses respected patients as legitimate participants. In the second category, managing risk, nurses emphasized the need to monitor participation to ensure rules and patient safety were ...

Introduction: Patient participation is important for improving outcomes and respecting selfdetermination and legal aspects in care. Heart failure is a chronic condition that puts high demands on self-care and patient participation. Patients often need advanced care due to deterioration of their heart failure symptoms, and one option is to provide care as home-care. There is limited knowledge of how patients with heart failure and their partners view participation in home-care.. Aim: The overall aim of this thesis was to describe different perspectives of participation in structured heart failure home-care among patients with heart failure and their partners.. Methods: All patients in this thesis received structured heart failure home-care, according to a model aiming to facilitate care, where safety, participation, and gaining knowledge about the illness and treatment, are in focus. Study I had a prospective pre-post longitudinal design including 100 patients with heart failure receiving ...
In the US, trends in patient participation have been influenced by a variety of sources and previous political movements. One such source for patient participation in clinical research was the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s. During the epidemic, the AIDS activists argued not only for new clinical trial models, but for the importance of additional social service groups to support a wider range of potential human subjects.[65] Since then, the FDA has taken several steps to include patients earlier in the drug development process. The authorization of Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) V in 2012 included the Patient-Focused Drug Development (PFDD) initiative to provide the FDA with a way of hearing the patients perspectives and concerns.[66] Similarly, the European Medicine Agency (EMA) has been attempting to incorporate patient perspectives during the evaluation of medicinal products by the EMA scientific committees.[67] There has been an increased interest among healthcare providers, ...

The problem focussed on concerns interaction in health and medical settings between patients and health care professionals. The issues studied relate to patient participation and influence in face-to-face encounters with professionals, and to patient evaluation of selected aspects of their experiences of modem health care.. In the theoretical background, it is argued that the health care setting is an example of a communicative situation characteristic of modem society in which people who vary in communicative power and expertise interact. Institutionalized communication thus typically involves encounters between the general public- often referred to as laymen - and one or more experts representing the views and traditions of an institution. At a general level, the central concern of the study is one of making visiblethe patients reactions and of scrutinizing their possibilities of making themselves heard.. The methodological approach utilized is multidisciplinary. In the ftrst two articles, a ...

Background There have been recent important advances in conceptualizing and operationalizing involvement in health research and health-care service development. However, problems persist in the field that impact on the scope for meaningful involvement to become a routine - normalized - way of working in primary care. In this review, we focus on current practice to critically interrogate factors known to be relevant for normalization - definition, enrolment, enactment and appraisal. Method Ours was a multidisciplinary, interagency team, with community representation. We searched EBSCO host for papers from 2007 to 2011 and engaged in an iterative, reflexive approach to sampling, appraising and analysing the literature following the principles of a critical interpretive synthesis approach and using Normalization Process Theory. Findings Twenty-six papers were chosen from 289 papers, as a purposeful sample of work that is reported as service user involvement in the field. Few papers provided a clear ...

We found that different concepts of user involvement coexisted within a single organisation. As user involvement was loosely defined in programme documentation there was little dissent about whether activities constituted real involvement or not. Previous studies have looked at responses of different professional categories to the idea of user involvement suggesting responses ascribe to the interests of the particular discipline.26 27 Here we observed differences within professional and service user groupings based on individual ideologies, circumstances, and needs. Within professional groupings we identified two categories. Firstly, professionals who viewed user involvement as an exercise in democracy and promoted patients expertise as valid as that of professionals were identified. In contrast there were those who unquestionably enacted out the policy of involvement as a directive to be implemented as part of a patient centred NHS.. Despite some promoting the philosophy of patient ...

Service user involvement (SUI) is a principal and a guideline in social and health care and also in mental health and substance abuse work. In practice, however, there are indicators of SUI remaining rhetoric rather than reality. The purpose of this study was to analyse and describe service users' conceptions of SUI in mental health and substance abuse work. The following study question was addressed: what are service users' conceptions of service user involvement in mental health and substance abuse work? In total, 27 users of services participated in the study, and the data was gathered by means of interviews. A phenomenographic approach was applied in order to explore the qualitative variations in participants' conceptions of SUI. As a result of the data analysis, four main categories of description representing service users' conceptions of service user involvement were formed: service users have the best expertise, opinions are not heard, systems make the rules, and courage and

Recently I was asked to identify a patient driven innovation for a workshop at the 7th Global Patients Congress. The title was Patient organisation led innovation-what works?. The innovation I chose is known as community advisory boards (CABs). Such boards are common tools in local and regional organisations of healthcare, but they also exist on national and international levels. I chose to give an example of a CAB created within a patient driven organisation. On this specific platform the pharmaceutical industry, researchers and their networks, regulatory and academic bodies can meet with representatives of the interests of patients.. Steven Epstein (1996) first noted how the impact of AIDS treatment activism on HIV research resulted in Impure Science. Patients were fighting for their own rights to break into drug development. In the US community groups started their own experiments, politicised the exclusion and social neglect of people living with HIV/Aids, and stopped business on Wall ...
We need to work on giving patients more choice in clinical trials, even at the protocol level, says Agnieszka Gackowska, MD, senior director for Global Site Solutions with Parexel. Shes a big proponent of leveraging technology and concepts surrounding decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) to increase participation by making it easier for patients to engage and remain involved for the duration of the trial.. Most experts agree the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way clinical trials are conducted, and Gackowska is among that group. Like the majority, she also believes many of those changes will remain long after the pandemic is a memory. Theres no going back from how weve been reimagining clinical trials to adjust to COVID-imposed limitations, she says.. Gackowska acknowledges that the initial financial considerations associated with DCTs could make trial conduct more costly for the clinical trial industry, but the effort will ultimately more than pay for itself. If leveraged properly, DCTs ...
The CURIA app aims to create a new world of possibilities for patient participation and research. At its core it is designed to provide patients with vital information to help them manage their disease and make the important decisions about their treatment journey. Patients also have access to services such as a second opinion, the ability to be matched with the most similar patient in the app to share experiences, and other in-app offerings.. Now comes the crux of how this patient ecosystem can revolutionise cancer research. Researchers can submit studies, surveys or questionnaires to the app, in which patients can choose to participate. Information collected may include blood reports, pathology reports, doctors letter, or researchers may be looking to ask more qualitative questions - for example, regarding quality of life. The data patients share is licensed out to researchers securely over blockchain, meaning patients always remain in control. Furthermore, patients are rewarded for their ...
Patients prioritised those problems that they thought would be helpful to discuss at their next review appointment. Other patients discounted those problems that they felt were unrelated to their health, or that they already had plans for dealing with. Patients found that using the form and then reflecting on their answers by attempting to prioritise three problems helped them to identify where their main issues were and reflect on health issues as they related to the rest of their life, rather than in a condition-specific way (as is the norm in a consultation).

In response to the doctors introduction of ankle swelling as an item the patient had checked off on her health history form (lines 1-3), the patient reports a historical lack of foot swelling and its corroboration by admiring observers (You know myfeet never used to swell at all. In fact that was one of the things I always got iv:- (0.2) was admired by everybody.=How come you can take your shoes o(h)ff and you(h)r feet never swell.).6 The patient thus casts foot swelling as an unusual or novel symptom for her, one that is worthy of the doctors attention. This becomes an important component in the patients subsequent reasoning about a potential cause of her foot swelling (summer heat)..

Our previous duty doctor system meant that urgent requests to speak to a doctor always went to the duty doctor; this potentially left a patient, whose health was deteriorating, talking to, or being seen by, different doctors. We have introduced telephone appointments specifically to support continuity; these are now available each day a doctor works. There may not always be sufficient appointments to satisfy all patients, but we hope to be able to accommodate the majority of patient requests and greatly improve continuity ...

Rates of adverse events during hospitalisation have been estimated at between 3% and 16% globally and, despite increasing attention, have demonstrated very little improvement over the last 10 years.1 The role that patients could play in promoting safety and reducing adverse events is now an international policy priority. For example, the WHOs World Alliance for Patient Safety cites mobilisation and empowerment of patients as one of six action areas that will be taken forward in its Patients for Patient Safety programme.2 Despite international emphasis and repeated calls for greater patient involvement,3 Wachter referred to the lack of progress in this area as a troubling gap, when rating the achievements of healthcare in promoting safety.4 Perhaps even more troubling is the dearth of research evidence on how best to involve patients and whether such involvement leads to improvements in safety. The evidence that does exist indicates that patients are willing and able to participate in error ...

In 2005, the International Patient Decision Aids Standards Collaboration identified twelve quality dimensions to guide assessment of patient decision aids. One dimension-the delivery of patient decision aids on the Internet-is relevant when the Internet is used to provide some or all components of a patient decision aid. Building on the original background chapter, this paper provides an updated definition for this dimension, outlines a theoretical rationale, describes current evidence, and discusses emerging research areas. An international, multidisciplinary panel of authors examined the relevant theoretical literature and empirical evidence through 2012. The updated definition distinguishes Internet-delivery of patient decision aids from online health information and clinical practice guidelines. Theories in cognitive psychology, decision psychology, communication, and education support the value of Internet features for providing interactive information and deliberative support. Dissemination and
In 2005, the International Patient Decisions Aid Standards (IPDAS) Collaboration developed quality criteria for patient decisions aids; one of the quality dimensions dealt with disclosure of conflicts of interest (COIs). The purposes of this paper are to review newer evidence on dealing with COI in the development of patient decision aids and to readdress the theoretical justification and definition for this quality dimension. The committee conducted a primary systematic literature review to seek published research addressing the question, What is the evidence that disclosure of COIs in patient decision aids reduces biased decision making? A secondary literature review included a systematic search for recent meta-analyses addressing COIs in other spheres of health care, including research and publication, medical education, and clinical care. No direct evidence was found addressing this quality dimension in the primary literature review. The secondary review yielded a comprehensive Institute of
Patient decision aids are increasingly regarded as important components of clinical practice that enable shared decision making (SDM) and evidence based patient choice. Despite broad acceptance of their value, there remains little evidence of their successful implementation in primary care settings. Health care practitioners from five general practice surgeries in northern England participated in focus group sessions around the themes of patient decision aids, patient and practitioner preferences and SDM. Participants included general practitioners (n = 19), practice nurses (n = 5) and auxiliary staff (n = 3). Transcripts were analysed using a framework approach. We report a) practitioners discussion of the current impetus towards sharing decisions and their perspectives on barriers to SDM, and b) the implementation of patient decision aids in practice and impediments such as lack of an evidence base and time available in consultations. We demonstrate two orientations to sharing decisions: practitioner

Involving patients in decision-making is an important part of patient-centred care. Research has found a discrepancy between patients desire to be involved and their actual involvement in healthcare decision-making. In Asia, there is a dearth of research in decision-making. Using Malaysia as an exemplar, this study aims to review the current research evidence, practices, policies, and laws with respect to patient engagement in shared decision-making (SDM) in Asia. In this study, we conducted a comprehensive literature review to collect information on healthcare decision-making in Malaysia. We also consulted medical education researchers, key opinion leaders, governmental organisations, and patient support groups to assess the extent to which patient involvement was incorporated into the medical curriculum, healthcare policies, and legislation. There are very few studies on patient involvement in decision-making in Malaysia. Existing studies showed that doctors were aware of informed consent, but few
As the number of disease-modifying therapies available for multiple sclerosis increases, patients and physicians can struggle to identify the right one for the right patient, highlighting the need for a patient decision aid.
The IT-systems in the Health Care section does not perform well since the user acceptance among the different professions is low. When IT-systems become unable to support health operators in their daily work, it can cause a variety of effects such as stress, lack of time and reduced patient safety. Hence we see that IT systems should be developed from the user point of view to be able to fulfill its function as a tool in health care. This paper intends to investigate how user involvement in system development projects in health care, can be developed. The study is based on interviews which aimed to map the current situation in health care. Based on this, we propose techniques and tools that can help providers and clients to improve user involvement when implementing new IT systems in healthcare..

THE THREE SWANS SURGERY PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP ANNUAL REPORT MARCH 2015 Our Patient Participation/Reference Groups support the surgery by helping to improve our quality of care and shaping our services for all of our patients. At our meeting in November 2013 the future of our PPG was in question as our existing Chair, Margaret Roper, had retired from the role, meetings were not very well attended and even though Margaret spent a lot of time in the surgery trying to raise awareness and encourage new members to join the group this was not proving to be successful, in patients attending meetings or putting themselves forward to be Chair. It was agreed that the group would continue and we would work hard to find a new Chair. In January 2015 a willing and enthusiastic volunteer has agreed to act as Chair for our PPG and at our recent AGM he was introduced to the group, where it was unanimously agreed for him to take on this role. A further meeting will be held to discuss the committee and future ...

Theres a mantra in healthcare right now to drive patient engagement. The idea is that informed and engaged patients play a crucial role in improving the quality of care our health system delivers. With the right information, these healthcare consumers will be more active participants in their care, select providers based on quality and value metrics, demand appropriate, high-quality, high-value services and choose treatment options wisely after a thorough process of shared decision-making.. This drive for patient engagement often fails to recognize one important truth: Our healthcare system inadvertently, yet potently, discourages engagement. It ignores the fact that the patient is already the most engaged person in healthcare. The patient bears the disease, the pain, the scar - and, ultimately, the bill. In our search for greater engagement, we must realize what the comic strip Pogo said years ago - we have met the enemy, and he is us.. As physicians, we expect patients to bring test ...
Medicines are developed to improve the lives of patients. Serving patients in the best way possible requires a deep understanding of their medical conditions, needs and priorities. This can be gained only through direct, sustained and constructive interactions with patients - a definition that includes those with the medical condition and their family or carers. Health stakeholders agree that broadening patient engagement is key to improving drug development and providing solutions that achieve both clinical and patient-desired outcomes. As a result, there is an encouraging and increasing number of patient engagement (PE) initiatives that aim to integrate the patient voice in medicines development specifically, and in the healthcare arena generally.. However, current PE is sporadic, fragmented and unstructured with no clearly defined framework or agreed process. Without such a framework, the ability of PE activities to meet agreed and desired objectives will be compromised. What is needed is a ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Experiencing cancer treatment decision-making in managed care. AU - Wenzel, Jennifer. AU - Shaha, Maya. PY - 2008/9/1. Y1 - 2008/9/1. N2 - Aim. This paper is a report of a study to explore womens perceptions of and experiences with breast cancer treatment decision-making in managed care organizations (MCOs). Background. Managed care organizations are the predominant form of employer-sponsored healthcare insurance in the United States of America. These healthcare financing entities minimize cost by streamlining healthcare delivery and may impose choice restrictions. The extent of these restrictions has not previously been studied from an in-depth patient perspective. Method. A qualitative descriptive approach was adopted using interviews with a purposive sample of 14 managed care enrollees diagnosed with breast cancer at all stages. The data were collected between 2003 and 2005. Data analysis involved a reflexive process of transcript reading, categorization, data reduction and ...

Were hearing a lot about how important it is to become an engaged patient these days. But as industry tries to cash in on the growing patient engagement movement, and as patients feel pressured to do more, be more and self-track more, we start to wonder if this engagement applies to the medical profession, too.
A new report reveals that 69% of healthcare providers are using patient engagement to get patients more involved in their own care, but its authors suggest that number should be closer to 100%.
Karlyne Reilly, PhD, discusses the Rare Tumor Patient Engagement Network and the importance of getting patients with rare conditions involved in cancer research.
Background: Cancer is currently the second leading cause of death in the USA, however many gains are being made in cancer therapeutics due in large part to patient participation in clinical trials. It is estimated that 20% of patients nationwide are eligible for a clinical trial, but only 3% are actually enrolled. At the University of Chicago, almost 50% of new patients are eligible for a cancer clinical trial, but only 15% are enrolled. Furthermore, only half of eligible patients are offered enrollment. African-Americans have worse outcomes across the cancer care continuum compared to Caucasians; however these outcomes can be ameliorated when patients receive standardized care according to a clinical trial. African-Americans are underrepresented amongst cancer clinical trial participants, despite evidence from our institution that African-Americans were more than twice as likely as Caucasians to enroll in a cancer clinical trial when offered. We hypothesize that a provider-directed intervention ...
WELCOME TO THE PACER NETWORK. Patient-centred care is widely advocated as fundamental to healthcare delivery and is a strategic priority of many healthcare organisations across Australia and internationally. However, this requires evidence about the preferences, needs and values of patients and their families, as well as active patient involvement. The methodologies used in patient-centred research and the processes for engaging and involving patients in research and healthcare are dynamic, evolving and challenging. The PACER Network provides a unique opportunity for researchers and health professionals to exchange learnings, collaborate, access relevant resources, and receive training in patient-centred research and patient involvement.. The PACER Network is a joint initiative of The University of Sydney, and the Kids Research at The Childrens Hospital at Westmead, Westmead Hospital, and the Westmead Institute for Medical Research. The network was established in 2018 and the aim of the network ...

Nurse plus digital plus patient equals better outcomes, say Rebecca Galbraith and John Procter in their feature article in Deep Dive: Digital II.. Digital technology is allowing healthcare providers to do things they never could before: remotely monitor patients, whether they are a few miles away, or thousands; access electronic medical records from anywhere, and check patients vital signs from wearables in real time. However, where patient engagement and patient-centric medicine are concerned, there has to be more to care than data alone.. In a survey of 340 clinicians, clinician leaders and hospital executives carried out by the New England Journal of Medicine between February and March 2016, almost 60% said that they felt increasing face-to-face time with patients was the best engagement strategy. Shared decision-making initiatives, the crux of patient engagement, were ranked as important by 54% of the healthcare professionals.. Patient engagement and patient experience are seen as ...

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the United States and is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death. The overall management of breast cancer includes the treatment of local disease with surgery, radiation therapy, or both, and the treatment of systemic disease with cytotoxic chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, biologic therapy, or combinations of these. The NCCN Guidelines specific to management of large clinical stage II and III tumors are discussed in this article. These guidelines are the work of the members of the NCCN Breast Cancer Panel. Expert medical clinical judgment is required to apply these guidelines in the context of an individual patient to provide optimal care. Although not stated at every decision point of the guidelines, patient participation in prospective clinical trials is the preferred option of treatment for all stages of breast cancer. ...

We will also highlight the importance of our groups links to the national organisation INVOLVE, that was set up to support greater involvement in public health and social care research. ...
Background: Considerable controversy surrounds the optimal treatment for localized prostate cancer (LPC). Better understanding of mens treatment decision making process and its influencing factors may help men improve the quality of their treatment decision (e.g. decisional satisfaction, regret, or conflict). The influence of race on these factors is not well understood. We assessed the effects of mens personality, types of physicians seen, and involvement of family and friends on the treatment choice for LPC and the quality of this choice.. Methods: A population-based sample of 154 men (85 white, 69 black) ≤ 75 years with newly diagnosed LPC were mailed a self-administered survey during a pilot study. Patient treatment choice, the reasons for the treatment choice, personality traits, and decisional qualities were assessed using either validated scales or scales developed based on literature review and qualitative research.. Results: Mean age was 61(±7.3) years; 2/3 had ,high school ...

Systematic reviews of health effectiveness have traditionally been undertaken by teams of topic experts, primarily clinicians or health researchers. Nearly 10 years ago, the involvement of service users and carers was referred to as a phenomenon emerging out of the shadows1 which was relatively underdeveloped. Recent research confirms that user involvement remains relatively rare, with few organisations engaging consumers.2. In the field of community development, patient and public involvement (PPI) is not new. In the UK, for example, national legislation has reflected an increasing policy drive to involve patients, service users and carers in health research.3 ,4 PPI is regarded as an umbrella term, used to refer to a variety of stakeholders or end users/recipients/beneficiaries of research and means working with patients and the public as members of the research team.. Three rationales for PPI in designing primary health research have been put forward in the literature. First, PPI is ...

They are designing very personalized, data-driven strategies for members of every risk profile and for different populations, meaning every different ethnicity and education and income level.. Plans know that increased compliance helps them save money and that the investment in reaching consumers the right way is more than offset by improving levels of engagement..

Mr Dziworski reiterated that the partnership has the overall aim of adding two healthy life years to the average life expectancy by 2020 which gives the project a nine-year timeframe. If this can be achieved, he said, there will be a triple win situation whereby the health status and quality of life of the EU older citizens will be improved, the sustainability and efficiency of more integrated care services will be ensured and the elderly will be able to age actively and independently. This should boost EU competitiveness and, at the same time, decrease health costs. Therefore by helping the individual, society also benefits. The Commission hopes this project will make a difference in a very practical way and one way this can be achieved is by recognising the importance of end-users involvement. At the moment, Mr Dziworski said, end- users involvement is insufficient. He added that the Partnership is not just about research (which will be continued), but about the identification and development ...
