Health professionals are on the front lines of healthcare delivery, due to the current shortage, and ageing of medical staff, their recruitment and retention are crucial challenges for health policy-makers and managers. To get the opinions of decision-makers and practitioners concerning importance of the quality of management to improve the healthcare system we conducted interviews with selected stakeholders. According to our respondents, the main challenge for the Polish healthcare system is an employment of an adequate number of medical staff...

This contribution discusses the role of Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) in improving quality of care. The development of PRO in primary care using scoring methods on various domains such as trust, information, communication, clinical quality, access is important as a quality improvement tool, especially in the context of market disruption and disinvestment due to reforms of the welfare contracts.

The ways in which patient care is organized, managed and delivered are changing dramatically. As these changes continue to unfold, the organizational arrangements within which they take place - the production process - need to be redesigned. Redesign is always challenging, as peoples' routines, habits and expectations are frequently disrupted, and need to be modified or replaced by new ones. However, it should be a priority, as the need for change is only going to increase over time.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: There are two routine pulse-sequences for single voxel spectroscopy (SVS), point resolved spectroscopy (PRESS) and stimulated echo acquisition mode (STEAM). Although STEAM has several advantages in comparison to PRESS, signal/noise ratio (SNR) superiority of PRESS makes it the first choice for SVS. Application of Fast Padé transform (FPT) instead of Fast Furrier transform (FFT) might increase the SNR of the signal produced by STEAM pulse-sequence and therefore allows the benefits of its advantages...

This paper introduces a comprehensive fetal Electrocardiogram (fECG) Signal Extraction and Analysis Virtual Instrument that integrates various methods for detecting the R-R Intervals (RRIs) as a means to determine the fetal Heart Rate (fHR) and therefore facilitates fetal Heart Rate Variability (HRV) signal analysis. Moreover, it offers the capability to perform advanced morphological fECG signal analysis called ST segment Analysis (STAN) as it seamlessly allows the determination of the T-wave to QRS complex ratio (also called T/QRS) in the fECG signal...

Sun-Shil Shin, Won-Gyu Yoo
BACKGROUND: Patients with LSS tend to adopt a flexed lumbar posture and trunk position, particularly when stepping over an obstacle, as this activity alters the biomechanical demands placed on the trunk and lower extremities. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) on patients' trunk and lower-extremity kinematics, and on activities involving the gluteus medius (GMed) and vastus lateralis (VL). METHODS: All participants (9 older adult patients with LSS and 11 control subjects) were required to negotiate an obstacle while walking...

BACKGROUND: Conventional radiography (CR) is the imaging method of choice in monitoring bone remodelling and other stability parameters after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Quantitative roentgen- or computed-tomography-based methods to determine bone density are prone to metal artifacts and often very costly, which is why they are not used as standard in a clinical setting. Since subjective assessment of bone remodelling in CR also has a certain susceptibility to errors, semi-quantitative methods have been developed to help approximate periprosthetic bone density development via CR to open up an additional tool for documentation of radiographic THA follow-up...
