REVIEW
Susan Gerry Riley, Katherine Irene Pettus, Julian Abel
We describe in this paper the story of the 'Buddy Groups' for bereaved people that were set up at Weston Hospicecare in 2008 and have endured ever since. The group have helped bereaved people to find meaning and value despite their grief. We observed that, through the strength of the relationships formed, people were able to recover well. Group members reported back to us the significant value they placed on being in a Buddy Group.

Background: With increased delayed discharges from acute NHS hospitals, especially for older patients, solutions like the 'Discharge to Assess' (D2A) scheme aim to facilitate quicker discharge and improve experiences for patients and carers. Setting: This report examines the quality process from the patient perspective of the D2A scheme implemented in a London Northwest Healthcare NHS Trust (LNWHT). A retrospective audit was conducted using the first cohort of patients discharged through this pilot scheme from April to July 2017...

The safe and effective treatment of patients accessing multiple NHS services relies upon efficient communication between primary care, secondary care, and out of hours providers. There is a theoretical risk to patient safety from delays in these processes, to which paper communications are particularly vulnerable. When letters are received they must be reviewed and prioritised in order of clinical importance, a process that requires both time and clinical resources. This is relevant to the challenge of resource allocation to maximise patient benefit...

Background: The NHS is undergoing unprecedented change, central to which is policy aimed at integrating health and social care services, resulting in the implementation of new care models. GPs are at the forefront of this change. However, there is lack of academic literature on General Practitioners' perceptions on their role in light of the new models of care proposed by the NHS Five Year Forward View which this small-scale study begins to address. Objectives: This study aims to produce a description of how GP's construct their current and future general practice, professional status and identify within the context of the current NHS transformation agenda...

Context: Two reforms (2014, 2015) characterised by the merger of public health care establishments profoundly shaped the current organisation of Quebec's healthcare system. In 2015, 22 megastructures called Integrated Health and Social Services Centres/Integrated University Health and Social Services Centres (IHSSC/IUHSSC), were created and mandated to organise care delivery to their local populations. Objective: To describe the service configuration of the 2015 healthcare system reforms, emphasising on how it shaped the organisation of primary health care (PHC) in Quebec...

The RCGP conference, like other annual healthcare conferences offers a protected space for reflection on ethical aspects of practice. This paper presents a summary and discussion of a fringe session led by the RCGP Committee On Medical Ethics at the 2017 RCGP annual conference in Liverpool. Well thought-out rules offer a potential solution to the burden of responsibility for making every single decision from first principles. But guidelines can be difficult to follow, too numerous to know, may conflict with each-other and may not be appropriate in all circumstances...

The concept of integrated care has been advocated for many years to address some of the challenges faced by the NHS. This report examines the experiences of respiratory healthcare specialists working in an integrated role. Twelve qualitative telephone interviews were undertaken with a range of integrated respiratory specialists and their teams working in both hospitals and the community. A descriptive and thematic approach to data analysis was adopted. Participants were very enthusiastic about their roles and saw themselves as ambassadors for this new way of working...

The rapidly increasing number of people who have long-term conditions requires a system of coordinated support for self-care throughout the NHS. A system to support self-care needs to be aligned to systems that support shared-care and community development, making it easier for the multidisciplinary teams who provide care to also help patients and populations to help themselves. Public health practitioners need to work closely with clinicians to achieve this. The best place to coordinate this partnership is a community-based coordinating hub, or local health community - a geographic area of about 50,000 population where different contributions to self-care can be aligned...

Japan's healthcare system is primarily focused on general care, and psychiatric services are mainly concerned with institutional solutions to serious mental health issues. As a result, child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) have been slow to develop, and there is a limited evidence base to guide treatment. As such, providing treatment to this population is a challenging endeavour. This landscape piece aims to illustrate the current state of child and adolescent services in Japan and provides a description of a recently opened private clinic for children with mental health conditions in Kuroyashi, a city in the Tottori prefecture...

Oman is an emerging economy which has witnessed rapid development and demographic shift over the past four decades. With such changes, the country has witnessed a surge in the number of young people with various mental health problems. Despite the increasing need for mental health services for the young, there is a scarcity of such services in Oman due to severe shortage and maldistribution of facilities. Currently, only two institutes in Oman offer child and adolescent mental health services to the whole country...

This study aims to provide an overview of mental health problems of children and adolescents in Malaysia in general and the state of Terengganu in particular. It also highlights the challenges and the opportunities in the establishment of child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). CAMHS in Malaysia are developing slowly but have not reached the standards found in developed countries. Significant improvements are needed to ensure that the service can provide optimal help to children and adolescent as well as their families...

With emerging technology, computerised, internet-based and virtual reality (VR)-based treatment and training became increasingly popular. VR provides an immersive experience into a simulated environment. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is characterised by social communication deficits and repetitive behaviours. Children with ASD often require social skills training while VR provides a safe, controllable environment to practice skills repeatedly. The Centre for Innovative Applications of Internet and Multimedia Technologies (AIMTech Centre) at City University of Hong Kong developed a VR-enabled training program to examine its efficacy on emotional and social skills with six VR scenarios depicting the daily lives of typical children in Hong Kong...
