To alleviate the significant burden of vision impairment and blindness in low-resource settings, addressing the shortage in human resources in eye care is one of the fundamental strategies. With its postgraduate training programmes, The Fred Hollows Foundation New Zealand (FHFNZ) aims to increase workforce capacity in the Pacific Island countries and territories and Papua New Guinea. This paper presents an in-country model to offer support to graduates, an essential element to retain them in the workforce and ensure they are able to perform the tasks they were trained to do...

AIMS: The purpose of this study was to identify predictors of remediation in a medical programme and assess the underlying causes and the quality of remediation provided within the context of a recent curriculum change. METHODS: A mixed methods study incorporating a retrospective cohort analysis of demographic predictors of remediation during 2013 and 2014, combined with thematic qualitative analysis of educator perspectives derived by interview on factors underlying remediation and the quality of that currently provided by the faculty...

AIMS: Thirty-day mortality has been proposed to be a useful indicator of avoidable harm to patients from systemic anticancer therapies (SACT). As a quality assurance tool, we assessed the 30-day mortality rate at Auckland City Hospital and compared this with international standards. METHODS: Clinical characteristics and treatment details of medical oncology patients who died within 30 days of SACT from October 2014-September 2015 were collected and compared with data from a similar series performed from October 2008-September 2009...

AIM: To determine the most accurate data source for acute rheumatic fever (ARF) epidemiology in the Auckland region. METHOD: To assess coverage of the Auckland Regional Rheumatic Fever Register (ARRFR), (1998-2010) for children <15 years and resident in Auckland at the time of illness, register, hospitalisation and notification data were compared. A consistent definition was applied to determine definite and probable cases of ARF using clinical records. (www...

AIMS: To examine direct and indirect pathways between visual and cognitive function in advanced age. METHODS: We analysed cross-sectional baseline data from Life and Living in Advanced Age: A Cohort Study in New Zealand, which recruited equal sample sizes of Māori (n=421) and non-Māori (n=516) octogenarians. The Modified Mini-Mental State Examination assessed cognitive function. Vision was assessed with self-report and measured distance visual acuity. Associations between visual and cognitive function were explored using general linear models and structural equation modelling...

AIM: The purpose of this study is to identify patterns of medication-related harm from a national perspective, and to use this information to inform decisions on where to focus medication safety efforts. This study updates a 2013 study using the same methodology. METHOD: District health boards (DHBs) still actively using either the Adverse Drug Event (ADE) Trigger Tool (TT) or the Global Trigger Tool (GTT), submitted two years of anonymised ADE data (1 July 2013-30 June 2015) to the Health Quality & Safety Commission (the Commission) using a standard template...

AIM: To assess the circulating emm types of pharyngeal isolates of group A streptococcus (GAS) among school children living in Northland, the Gisborne region and Palmerston North, New Zealand. METHODS: GAS were isolated from throat swabs sent to laboratories in Northland (197 in 2013) and Gisborne (115 in 2014-15) and from children enrolled in the Palmerston North Solar Ventilation Project (70 in 2013-14). The incidences of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) cases in the three regions in 2014 were 9, 19...

Ongoing improvements in digital data acquisition and storage has led to the phenomenon of e(lectronic)-mortality, where digital data can now exist for a potentially infinite period. Globally, many countries are facilitating the acquisition and researcher-led access to large-scale, population-based digitised healthcare data sets. Their utilisation has led to numerous positive advances in healthcare. New Zealand's medical record system is becoming increasingly digitised, and as a consequence there will be an ever-increasing resource of posthumous healthcare data stored digitally, including genomic information...

AIM: The aim of this report is to provide hospitals in New Zealand with data about their own outcomes for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures and allow comparisons with other New Zealand units and with international data. METHODS: All PCI procedures (n=5,033) were identified in nine public hospital catheterisation laboratories between 1 October 2014 and 30 September 2015. Risk-adjusted mortality rates were derived for each hospital and compared with the national rate...

AIM: To explore relationships between student loans debt, financial support and career preferences upon graduation for all healthcare disciplines offered at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland. METHODS: The Faculty Tracking Project is a longitudinal study which invites students to complete a questionnaire at the beginning and end of their educational programmes, including questions on debt, financial support and career preference. Our analysis comprised three phases: (1) a descriptive analysis of data related to debt and financial support; (2) a principal component analysis in order to find related categories of career choice; and (3) logistic regression models to determine how career preference categories could be explained by either levels of student loans debt or financial support...

AIM: Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare disease that affects 1-2 per million population per year. Treatment with cytoreductive surgery with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS with IPC) has been well described. The purpose of this study was to look at the short-term outcomes following CRS with IPC for all such patients treated in Waikato. METHOD: Records for all patients presenting to surgery for CRS with IPC were retrospectively reviewed. CRS with IPC was performed in accordance with the techniques described by Sugarbaker...

AIM: Appendicitis in older adults may present as the first sign of underlying colorectal cancer. We aim to determine whether there was a difference in the rate of diagnosis of colorectal carcinoma for patients ≥45 years following a presentation with appendicitis, compared with New Zealand standardised rates. METHOD: Retrospective study of patients ≥45 years with a confirmed diagnosis of appendicitis from 2003 to 2015 inclusive. The rate of colorectal carcinoma diagnosed during the 36-month follow-up period was calculated and compared to standardised rates, as per the New Zealand cancer registry...
