AIM: Managed Flow C20 (MFC20) is an integrated care pathway (ICP) for rectal cancer implemented at a public teaching hospital. This study aims to quantify resource utilization and estimate direct costs and outcomes associated with the use of this ICP. METHODS: We evaluated consecutive rectal cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) followed by surgery, comparing the period before the ICP implementation (Pre-MFC20 group) and after (MFC20 group)...

BACKGROUND: Important gaps still exist in malaria case management despite implementation of the World Health Organization parasitological diagnosis before treatment recommendation. This calls for evidence-based strategies to improve health providers' adherence to these guidelines. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this project was to improve adherence of confirmed parasitological diagnosis prior to antimalarial prescription in the outpatient department. METHODS: The Joanna Briggs Institute Practical Application of Clinical Evidence System program was used to facilitate collection of baseline and post-audit data...

Judith Hocking, Julian McNeil, Jared Campbell
AIM: The systematic review was undertaken to investigate the effectiveness of physical therapy interventions for improving gross motor skills (GMSs) in people with an intellectual disability aged 6 years and older. There is a lack of physical therapy research for GMSs in this population, and no prior systematic review. People with an intellectual disability may require specific teaching approaches within therapy interventions to accommodate their cognitive and learning needs. People with an intellectual disability who suffer from GMS deficits can benefit from physical therapy to help improve their GMSs...

BACKGROUND: Although nurses recognize the importance of evidence-based practice (EBP) to improve health outcomes, they still find its implementation complex. Successful EBP requires nurses to have the knowledge and expertise to appraise and critically apply evidence into practice. OBJECTIVES: The study sought to identify Central Vietnam nurses' knowledge, skills, and attitudes to implementing EBP. METHODS: A cross-sectional descriptive research design was implemented to identify nurses' ability to conduct EBP in two large hospitals in Central Vietnam...

BACKGROUND: Drug interactions contribute significantly to adverse-related events and hospital admissions. Example of common drug interactions includes combinations of medications that induces serotonin syndrome. Pharmacists are well placed in the multidisciplinary team to alert prescribers of these drug interactions and offer an alternative management. OBJECTIVE: The objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of pharmacists' input in preventing patients being discharged on clinically relevant drug interactions that have the potential to cause serotonin syndrome in an Australian hospital...

METHODS: A search of databases and online resources was undertaken to identify published literature on medication safety in the acute care setting in Australia from 2008 to 2013. Data on the rates of adverse drug reactions and medication errors associated with hospitalization was extracted from the published studies...
