There exists low uptake of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) testing among Tuberculosis (TB) patients through Provider-Initiated HIV Testing and Counseling (PITC) under the national TB control program in Nepal. The degree and quality of program delivery were explored through determining whether the PITC program is currently implemented as intended. This study aimed to assess three major components of the programs implementation fidelity: adherence to PITC service, exposure, and quality of program delivery in order to optimize and standardize PITC implementation by exploring its barriers and enablers. This research used a sequential explanatory mixed method design. Retrospective cross-sectional study of TB patients enrolled in five TB treatment centers of the Kathmandu district from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017 was done to assess PITC adherence to Direct Observed Treatment-Short Course (DOTS) protocols. The centers TB-DOTS readiness was assessed using the WHO Service Availability and Readiness
Assessment of the implementation fidelity of a strategy to scale up integrated care in five European regions: a multimethod study.
Results Trial recruitment was 9% (1033/11015). 74% (258/351) of nurse group participants attended all 3 consultations and 4% (15/351) attended none. Planned consultation durations were 30 min (session 1) and 20 min (sessions 2 and 3). Mean durations for session 1 were 30 (range 20-60) minutes for self-report, 26 (range 12-57) minutes for audio-recorded; and for sessions 2 and 3, 23 (range 5-60) minutes for self-report, 17 (range 9-29) minutes for audio-recorded. Content adherence was high, mean completion at session 1 of 11/11 items and sessions 2 and 3 of 5/6 items. Quality of delivery: 89% (232/262) felt heard, understood and respected by the nurse. Participant responsiveness: 79% (208/262) reported the consultation number was just right; 76% (198/262) felt able to maintain PA changes; and across both groups 79% (549/692) returned completed PA diaries. ...
These uncertainties in periprocedural management are reflected in international guidelines where recommendations are usually provided with low-grade evidence.. Taking into account a 3-tiered thromboembolism risk categorization (high, moderate, low) of the most common patient groups on coumarins (eg, mechanical heart valve, atrial fibrillation, and venous thromboembolism), and a bleeding risk based on high- versus non-high-bleed-risk procedures, the recent 9th Edition American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) Guidelines (2012)1 suggest continuing coumarin administration for minor dental or dermatologic procedure and cataract surgery (Grade 2C), with heparin bridging for high thromboembolic risk patient groups (Grade 2C); however, the guidelines did not qualify a recommendation for moderate thromboembolic risk groups, which requires assessment of individualized risk factors for bleeding and thrombosis.1. In this issue of Circulation, Siegal et al11 performed a systematic review and meta-analysis ...
A growing proportion of people are living with long term conditions. The majority have more than one. Dealing with multi-morbidity is a complex problem for health systems: for those designing and implementing healthcare as well as for those providing the evidence informing practice. Yet the concept of multi-morbidity (the presence of |2 diseases) is a product of the design of health care systems which define health care need on the basis of disease status. So does the solution lie in an alternative model of healthcare? Strengthening generalist practice has been proposed as part of the solution to tackling multi-morbidity. Generalism is a professional philosophy of practice, deeply known to many practitioners, and described as expertise in whole person medicine. But generalism lacks the evidence base needed by policy makers and planners to support service redesign. The challenge is to fill this practice-research gap in order to critically explore if and when generalist care offers a robust alternative to
Translating scientific evidence into evidence-based practice in the real world has been challenging for many reasons, ranging from the lack of generalisability of results from highly controlled clinical trial situations to barriers arising from organisational, cultural and personal factors.1 Yet, it is critical that we overcome these barriers if we are to really improve patient outcomes. In particular, evidence for efficacy of implementation of evidence-based practices on a large scale has been lacking. In this study, the authors prospectively examined a large cohort of infants (n=7336) born preterm (between 24+0 and 31+6 weeks gestational age) in 335 … ...

This research described the development, dissemination and implementation of STARS, which was designed with the objective of increasing state and local capacity to conduct retail tobacco marketing surveillance to inform policy change. STARS dissemination activities achieved broad reach (downloaded by users in 46 US states and several countries globally), and found its intended audience: nearly half of registry participants were from state and local health departments. Results from surveys suggested that the majority of registered users intended to use STARS results to raise awareness or advance policy goals.. This research also provides evidence of good implementation fidelity. Self-trained data collectors obtained reliable data from STARS, and measures with low reliability were generally those assessing product price and price promotions, which tend vary over time to reflect industry marketing activities. The reliability of these items might be improved if training materials include more ...
Behaviour change is key to improving healthcare and health outcomes. Behaviours may be those of healthcare workers, such as implementation of evidence-based practice, of patients, such as medication adherence, or of the general population, such as smoking cessation and increasing physical activity. Despite high-level recommendations to improve implementation of evidence-based practice [1, 2] and a rapidly developing field of implementation science, implementation remains variable, with numerous organisational and individual factors influencing healthcare workers behaviour. These factors include the availability of evidence, its relevance to practice, the dissemination of evidence and guidelines, individual motivation, the ability to keep up with current changes, clarity of roles and practice, and the culture of specific healthcare practices [3, 4].. Improving implementation of evidence-based practice by healthcare workers depends on changing multiple behaviours of multiple types of people ...
This book is based on the idea that a behavior management plan can be as effective in preventing problematic classroom behavior as it is in managing it and utilizes an evidence-based approach to solving problems. It offers easy-to-implement, research-based plans for addressing problematic classroom behavior in two key areas: on-task time/assignment completion and disruption/rule violation. The author introduces a dozen behavior management plans in non-technical language. This eliminates the need for extensive training in behavior therapy or learning theory.

The Multisite Evaluation of the Honest Opportunity Probation with Enforcement Demonstration Field Experiment (the HOPE DFE Evaluation) has four goals: (1) Design and implement a randomization process in each of the four DFE sites; (2) Conduct a comprehensive process evaluation to assess implementation fidelity and identify lessons learned that will enhance future replications; (3) Conduct a rigorous experimental outcome evaluation to determine the effect of the HOPE model and its components on individual probation outcomes; and (4) Conduct a cost evaluation to assess the cost effectiveness of HOPE. The RCT will involve identifying in each of four sites a pool of HOPE-eligible probationers who will be randomly assigned to HOPE or to probation as usual (PAU). The evaluation will randomly assign approximately 400 eligible probationers to HOPE or PAU in each of the four sites for a total sample size of 1,600 (800 HOPE and 800 PAU).

Session presented on Monday, November 9, 2015: Todays healthcare environment is increasingly complex and ever changing. Evidence-based practice (EBP) has been identified as a critical requirement to achieve the Triple Aim in healthcare. Although it is well established that evidence-based practice (EBP) improves healthcare quality and patient outcomes as well as reduces morbidities, mortality, medical errors, and costs of healthcare services, it is not standard practice by the majority health professionals in healthcare systems. Many healthcare providers, across the care continuum, continue to deliver care based upon tradition, outdated policies and procedures, and information learned years ago in their educational programs. It is essential for healthcare organizations to transform their institutions to evidence-based enterprises by deeply integrating EBP into their day to day operations, culture, and work environments to meet national goals, exceed benchmarks, and provide high quality care to ...

These scientific findings and the ensuing listing of IFS on NREPP affirm the vast potential of IFS Therapy for advancing emotional healing and mental well-being. In particular, they indicate promising effects on mind (depression, anxiety), body (physical health conditions), and spirit (personal resilience and self-concept). Such outcomes deepen our resolve to catalyze additional research studies, both in clinical settings and in applications beyond psychotherapy, as further examination of the efficacy of IFS will help expand its empirical evidence and position us well for an updated NREPP posting, with more outcomes, five years from now.. We see in the NREPP news an indirect acknowledgment of the work of Richard Schwartz, PhD, who developed the modality 30-some years ago, and the longstanding efforts of this growing community of IFS trainers, practitioners, psychotherapy clients, and individuals for whom the model has offered a new way of being in the world.

Improvement Science Research Network www.ISRN.net However, it is estimated that only a small percentage of nurses and other health care providers are consistently using this approach to clinical practice. AIM: The aim of this study was to report on the development and psychometric properties of two new scales: (1) the 16‐item EBP Beliefs Scale that allows measurement of a persons beliefs about the value of EBP and the ability to implement it, and (2) the 18‐item EBP Implementation Scale that allows measurement of the extent to which EBP is implemented. METHODS: Nurses (N= 394) attending continuing education workshops volunteered to complete the scales. Data were analyzed to evaluate reliability and validity of both instruments. RESULTS: Cronbachs alpha was , .90 for each scale. Principal components analysis indicated that each scale allowed measurement of a unidimensional construct. Strength of EBP beliefs and the extent of EBP implementation increased as educational level increased (p , ...

By providing funds for community-wide implementation of home visiting programs, the Affordable Care Act of 20101 heightened the need for rigorous evaluation of impact when programs are implemented at scale in community settings. Although some evidence supports the positive impact of nurse home visiting programs on reducing infant injuries when the program is implemented with small samples,2,3 it has been reported that community-wide implementation of the same programs reduces participation and retention rates by up to 67%,4 decreases implementation fidelity by up to 50%,5 and raises challenges in finding adequate community resources to meet every familys identified needs.6 Distressingly, Matone et al7 found 14% more injuries for home-visited infants than matched comparison infants when an evidence-based program was scaled up in a community setting.. Problems in community-wide implementation have been overcome by the Durham Connects (DC) program,8 which was designed in collaboration with ...

Although the effectiveness of interventions for prevention and treatment of mental health and behavioral problems in abused and neglected youth is demonstrated through the accumulation of evidence through rigorous and systematic research, it is uncertain whether use of research evidence (URE) by child-serving systems leaders increases the likelihood of evidence- based practice (EBP) implementation and sustainment. Information on URE was collected from 151 directors and senior administrators of child welfare, mental health and juvenile justice systems in 40 California and 11 Ohio counties participating in an RCT of the use of community development teams (CDTs) to scale up implementation of Treatment Foster Care Oregon over a 3 year period (2010-12). Separate multivariate models were used to assess independent effects of evidence acquisition (input), evaluation (process), application (output), and URE in general (SIEU Total) on two measures of EBP implementation, highest stage reached and ...
Although the science of translating research into practice is fairly new, there is some guiding evidence of what implementation interventions to use in promoting patient safety practices. However, there is no magic bullet for translating what is known from research into practice. To move evidence-based interventions into practice, several strategies may be needed. Additionally, what works in one context of care may or may not work in another setting, thereby suggesting that context variables matter in implementation.80
Suboptimal quality of care is an evident issue in current healthcare services. Clinical pathways (CPs) have the potential to facilitate evidence-based practice and interprofessional teamwork, and thereby improve patient safety and quality of care.. The overall aim of the thesis was to develop comprehensive empirical knowledge and understanding of CP implementation and teamwork in Swedish intensive care units (ICUs). Four studies were included (I-IV).. Study I was a survey including all Swedish ICUs (N84) and a document analysis of CP examples (n12). In total, 17 (20%) ICUs used CPs and many had implementation plans. The quality, extent and content of the CPs (n56) varied greatly, with sometimes insufficient interprofessionalism, evidence base and renewal.. Study II was a mixed method including ICUs using CPs. The implementation processes were retrospectively explored through questionnaire data (n15) and qualitative content analysis of interviews with key informants (n10). The CP implementation ...

The Global Burden of Disease Study, a comprehensive regional and global assessment of mortality and disability from 107 diseases and injuries and 10 risk factors, is an example of an evidence-based input to public health policy debate. The study, which includes projections of the burden through the year 2020, uses the disability-adjusted life year as a composite measure of years of life lost due to premature mortality and years lived with disability. Future patterns of death and disability are likely to change dramatically because of aging of the worlds population, the epidemic of tobacco-related disease, the human immunodeficiency virus epidemic, and the likely reduction in death rates from communicable diseases in children.. ...

Speakers: Anne Sales, Rajeev Ramchandran, Gullapalli N. Rao, Edith Holloway, and Judith Goldstein. Implementation science is the study of methods to promote the adoption and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions and policies into routine health care and public health settings. While there are many proven strategies to prevent and treat eye diseases and rehabilitation models for those people with permanent vision loss, the large numbers of people around the world affected by vision impairment and blindness make provision of care a major challenge. In this mini-symposium, we will provide an overview of implementation science and how it can be applied in ophthalmology.

The shift towards individualisation in service delivery demands that service providers focus on using evidence based employment practices to meet client demands. Customised Employment is one such evidence-based process that supports individualisation, however like other forms of person centred processes, service providers often adopt the term but not the full process leading to failures and loss of confidence in the Customised Employment Process. Customised Employment is an evidence-based process that is underpinned by the Discovery process. The Discovery process in the USA is a federally mandated employment process for disability and rehabilitation service providers. The Centre for Disability Employment Research and Practice in collaboration with University of Melbourne have undertaken research into Customised Employment and the Discovery process and the recently released Discovery Fidelity Scale to determine its fidelity within the Australian setting.

New and better services are being created through the combined forces of increasing numbers of clinically important studies, increasingly robust evidence synthesis and synopsis services, and better information technology and systems. The need for these resources is spurred by demands for higher quality at lower cost from health services, but the impact of better information resources is being blunted by noisy pretenders promising the earth but yielding just the dirt. Providers and consumers of evidence-based health care can help themselves to best current evidence by recognising and using the most evolved information services for the topics that concern them.. The figure provides a 4S hierarchical structure, with original studies at the base, syntheses (systematic reviews) of evidence just above the base, synopses of studies and syntheses next up, and the most evolved evidence-based information ...
MedicalResearch.com: What can you tell us about the computerized training as compared to more traditional cognitive rehabilitation?. Response: Current treatments focus on in-person, 1:1 cognitive rehabilitation (e.g., training a person to use a calendar to make up for lapses in memory) - approaches that can be helpful, but are difficult to scale to all service members and veterans, and to all the places where they live.. TBI patients receiving top quality care have a range of treatments within their individual evidence-based plans in order to address their full range of needs. For example, pain might be addressed with a course of physical therapy or pain-killers, or depression might be addressed with a course of psycho-therapy or anti-depressants. Theres not been a lot of options when it comes to evidence-based programs for cognitive deficits. This study presents Class 1 evidence of a highly-scalable intervention, that quickly personalizes to each individual and that can be delivered ...
Study Purpose: The purpose of the study was to evaluate promising and evidence-based programs in community settings to identify how well programs worked in reducing and preventing the harmful effects of childrens exposure to violence (CEV) on children. Study Design: The outcomes evaluations were designed to examine whether implementation of each Safe Start intervention was associated with individual-level changes in specific outcome domains. The evaluation utilized an intent-to-treat approach that was designed to inform policymakers about the types of outcomes that could be expected if a similar intervention were to be implemented in a similar setting. To prepare for the evaluation, the sites worked together with the national evaluation team to complete a Green Light process that developed the specific plans for the intervention and assured that the evaluation plan would align well with the intervention being offered and would be ethical and feasible to implement.. As a result of the Green ...
Friends for Life was first implemented in our school in 2016. Its junior programme, Fun Friends was introduced to junior and senior infants in 2017.. The FRIENDS for Life programme is a school-based positive mental health programme. The World Health Organisation cites FRIENDS for Life as the only evidence-based programme effective at all levels of intervention for anxiety in children (WHO 2004). The programme helps students to develop effective strategies to deal with worry, stress and change and teaches the skills required to reduce anxiety and promote resilience. It is beneficial for all students, irrespective of their anxiety level.. The word FRIENDS for Life is an acronym that helps children and adolescents to remember the coping steps to follow:. ...
The University of Washingtons Northwest Research Group on Aging is partnering with Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) in Washington and Oregon to complete this translational investigation of RDAD (Reducing Disabilities in Alzheimers Disease). RDAD is an evidence-based program with demonstrated efficacy in helping older adults with dementia maintain physical function and remain physically and mentally healthy. This study asks two questions: 1) Can AAA partners successfully translate and implement RDAD, and 2) Is AAA implementation of RDAD effective in producing desired outcomes among agencies, providers, and older adults with dementia and their family members. This study is being conducted in Washington and Oregon states ...
Matter of Balance (MOB) is a researched and evidence-based program, designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults. MOB classes are held for 8 sessions, two-hours each. During these classes participants learn to view falls and fears of falling as controllable, learn to set realistic goals for increasing activity, learn to change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and promote exercise to increase strength and balance. This is taught through group discussion, problem-solving, skill building, assertiveness training, exercise training, videotapes, and sharing practical solutions.. Powerful Tools for Caregivers® ...
Research has shown that many healthcare professionals have problems with guidelines as they would prefer to be given all relevent information relevent to decision-making rather than being told what they should do. This study assesses doctors judgement of the validity, relevance, clarity and usability of the Italian translation of Clinical Evidence (CE) after its free distribution launched by the Italian Ministry of Health Opinions elicited using a standardised questionnaire delivered either by mail or during educational or professional meetings Twenty percent (n = 1350) doctors participated the study. Most of them found CEs content valid, useful and relevant for their clinical practice, and said CE can foster communications among clinicians, particularly among GPs and specialists. Hospital doctors (63%) more often than GPs (48%) read the detailed presentation of individual chapters. Twenty-nine percent said CE brought changes in their clinical practice. Doctors appreciated CEs nature of an evidence
recording and cataloguing the evidence for systematic retrieval. Much of the credit for todays EBP techniques belongs to Archie Cochrane, an epidemiologist, author of the book, Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services. Cochrane suggested that because resources would always be limited, they should be used to provide forms of health care which had been shown in properly designed evaluations to be effective. Cochrane maintained that the most reliable evidence was that which came from randomised controlled trials (RCTs). One of the main reasons that EBPs have been so successfully incorporated into treatment services is the vast amount of studies linking clients improved health outcomes and the general attitude that treatments should be based in scientific evidence (Institute of Medicine, 2001; Sackett & Haynes, 1995). It is now assumed that professionals must be well-informed and up-to-date with the newest knowledge in order to best serve their clients and remain ...
Systems of care and evidence-based practice possess distinct histories. Though each developed out of attempts to improve services to youth with emotional and behavioral disorders, they did so from perspectives so different as to appear diametrically opposed. Service systems exist at multiple levels, including the practice, program, and system levels (Rosenblatt, 1988, 2005; Rosenblatt & Woodbridge, 2003). Research on health and mental health service systems similarly varies, often by level of the service system, with the research methods, independent and dependent variables, populations of interest, and ultimately the consumers of the research product interacting differentially in the creation and understanding of what constitutes a knowledge base for service delivery. Systems of care and, with limited exceptions, evidence-based practices exist at different levels of the service delivery structure, require and derive from different research approaches, and speak to overlapping but historically ...
The principles of evidence-based practice are examined using various examples of psychosocial, behavioural and health interventions. The levels of evidence, criteria for efficacy and effectiveness, and the importance and limitations of evidence-based practice will be evaluated. The process of moving knowledge derived from high quality evidence into practice will be appraised throughout the course. Students will have the opportunity to build knowledge in their own areas of interest ...
