OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of two methods in encouraging the consideration of a leap from one patient management routine to another: (i) real-time review of the facts by an external medical team (ii) implementation of the 're-thinking-protocol' ('de-Freezing') by both treating and external medical teams. DESIGN: Students accompanied doctors, nurses and patients as non-interrupting observers. When an obvious gap between the expected and actual findings occurred, it was discussed four times: by two teams (treating team, external medical team) in two discussion modes (real-time review, de-Freezing-questionnaire)...

PURPOSE: Comfort is central to patient experience but the concept of comfort is poorly defined. This review aims to develop a framework representing patients' complex perspective of comfort to inform practice and guide initiatives to improve the quality of healthcare. DATA SOURCES: CINAHL, MEDLINE Complete, PsycINFO and Google Scholar (November 2016); reference lists of included publications. STUDY SELECTION: Qualitative and theoretical studies advancing knowledge about the concept of comfort in healthcare settings...

OBJECTIVE: To compare health service utilization and disability claims among military personnel with multisymptom illness (MSI) (but no chronic diseases), those with chronic disease(s) and those without MSI or chronic diseases. MSI is also known as Gulf War illness. DESIGN: Cohort study. SETTING: Australia. PARTICIPANTS: In total, 1288 participants of a Gulf War veterans' study conducted in 2000-2003 (Wave-1) were followed up in 2011-2012 (Wave-2), aged on average 40 years...

QUALITY ISSUE: Approximately 10% of patients are harmed by healthcare, and of this harm 15% is thought to be medication related. Despite this, medication safety data used for improvement purposes are not often routinely collected by healthcare organizations over time. INITIAL ASSESSMENT: A need for a prospective medication safety measurement tool was identified. CHOICE OF SOLUTION: The aim was to develop a tool to allow measurement and aid improvement of medication safety over time...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate factors, other than those clinical, precipitating the risk of aspiration in hospitalized patients. DESIGN: The Critical Incident Technique was adopted for this study in 2015. SETTING: Three departments located in two academic hospitals in the northeast of Italy, equipped with 800 and 1500 beds, respectively. PARTICIPANTS: A purposeful sample of 12 registered nurses (RN), all of whom (i) had reported one or more episodes of aspiration during the longitudinal survey, (ii) had worked ≥3 years in the department, and (iii) were willing to participate, were included...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine whether pharmacist-provided home-based medication review (HBMR) can reduce readmissions in the elderly. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Patient's home. PARTICIPANTS: Records of patients referred to a care transition program from March 2011 through March 2015 were reviewed. Patients aged 60 years and older taking more than 5 medications and had at least 2 unplanned admissions within 3 months preceding the first home visit were included...

REVIEW
Taofikat B Agbabiaka, Martina Lietz, José J Mira, Bruce Warner
PURPOSE: To establish from the literature, cost of preventable adverse events (PAEs) to member states of the Joint Action European Union Network for Patient Safety and Quality of Care. DATA SOURCES: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE and CINAHL for studies in Europe estimating cost of adverse events (AEs) and PAEs (2000-March 2016). Using data from the literature, we estimated PAE costs based on national 2013 total health expenditure (THE) data reported by World Health Organization and converted to 2015 Euros...
