Alison Cowley, Fiona Bath-Hextall, Joanne Cooper
BACKGROUND: Esophagogastric (EG) cancer is the fifth most common malignancy, and its incidence is increasing. The disease is fast paced, and five-year survival rates are poor. Treatment with palliative intent is provided for the majority of patients but there remains a lack of empirical evidence into the most effective service models to support EG cancer patients. OBJECTIVES: The overall objective of this quantitative systematic review was to establish best practice in relation to interventions targeted at healthcare professionals or the structures in which healthcare professionals deliver care (i...

BACKGROUND: Painful vaso-occlusive crisis is a hallmark of sickle cell disease (SCD) that commonly results in utilization of hospital services. Recurrent use of hospital services by SCD patients is associated with high healthcare costs and adverse clinical outcomes. Understanding the factors influencing the pattern of utilization is a first step in improving medical care of this patient population while reducing healthcare expenditures. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this systematic review was to determine what modifiable and non-modifiable factors influence utilization of hospital services by adult SCD patients...

Ritin S Fernandez, Astin Lee
BACKGROUND: Transradial access to percutaneous coronary procedures is becoming the preferred access route, and it is being increasingly used for emergent and elective procedures. However, radial artery occlusion (RAO) continues to remain an adverse occurrence following sheath removal or in the first 24 hours following sheath removal due to the smaller diameter of the artery. OBJECTIVES: The overall objective of this study was to synthesize the best available research evidence related to the effects of methods used to achieve hemostasis on RAO rates after percutaneous coronary procedures...

Wanda M Chernomas, Kendra L Rieger, Jane V Karpa, Diana E Clarke, Shelley Marchinko, Lisa Demczuk
BACKGROUND: The relationship between young adulthood, women and psychosis was the focus for this systematic review. Age and gender are factors that can influence responses to illness. Research indicates that there are differences in how young men and women are affected biologically and psychosocially, including the presentation of a constellation of symptoms, response to anti-psychotic medications and how they assess their life circumstances. Yet in literature that examines experiences of young people with psychosis, the specific needs of young women are usually not presented separately...

BACKGROUND: Physical activity, functional status and quality of life (QoL) are important determinants of the quality of life (QoL) after colorectal cancer (CRC) treatment; however, little is known on how the treatment impacts these outcomes. Having this understanding could help clinicians develop and implement strategies that would enhance or maintain the QoL of CRC patients. OBJECTIVES: To identify the impact of curative CRC treatment (surgery with or without radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy) on physical activity, functional status and QoL within one year of treatment or diagnosis...
