BACKGROUND: Early identification of virological failure (VF) limits occurrence and spread of drug-resistant viruses in patients receiving antiretroviral treatment (ART). Viral load (VL) monitoring is therefore recommended, but capacities to comply with this are insufficient in many low-income countries. Clinical algorithms might identify persons at higher likelihood of VF to allocate VL resources. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to construct a VF algorithm (the Viral Load Testing Criteria; VLTC) and compare its performance to the 2013 WHO treatment failure criteria...

Bethany Kruger, Ruth Northway
There is limited research that explores the experiences of how behavioural specialists actively involve people with a learning disability and challenging behaviour in the development of their positive behavioural support (PBS) plan. Accordingly, this exploratory research study aimed to explore this little understood area of practice. METHODS: The study included semi-structured interviews comprised of nine Behavioural Specialists in three focus groups across two health boards. A descriptive thematic analysis study...

Personhood and its realisation in person-centred care is part of the narrative, if not always the reality, of care for people with dementia. This paper examines how personhood is conceptualised and actualised in Ireland through a content analysis of organisational and individual submissions from stakeholders in the development of the Irish National Dementia Strategy, followed by an examination of the Strategy itself. The organisational submissions are further categorised into dementia care models. A structural analysis of the Strategy examines its principles, actions and outcomes in relation to personhood...

BACKGROUND: Applying a person-centred care (PCC) approach is an aspiration for many services attending people with dementia (PwD). However, the implementation and assessment of PCC practices represent a challenge to health professionals. AIM: To evaluate the impact on staff of a programme aiming to involve people with dementia (PwD) in their individualised care-planning (ICP) meetings in long-term residential settings; specifically, to explore the lessons that staff perceived they had learned from the experience...

BACKGROUND: Chronic wounds are a major health burden and have a severe impact on well-being. This synthesis of qualitative studies was undertaken to inform a health technology assessment of antimicrobial wound dressings. It aimed to explore patients' experiences of chronic wounds and determine improvements for clinical practice. METHOD: Inclusion criteria included use of qualitative methods, and English language publication. Databases searched included MEDLINE (Ovid), MEDLINE in Process (Ovid), EMBASE (Ovid), CINAHL (EBSCOHost), and PsychInfo (EBSCOHost)...

AIM: To assess the long-term effect of person-centred care (PCC) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHOD: Patients with ACS were randomly assigned to treatment as usual (control group) or an added PCC intervention for six months. The primary endpoint was a composite score of changes in general self-efficacy≥five units, return to work or to a prior activity level and re-hospitalisation or death. RESULTS: The composite score improved in the PCC intervention group (n=94) at a two-year follow-up compared with the control group (n=105) (18...

BACKGROUND: Older persons often have interacting physical and social problems and complex care needs. An integrated care approach in the local context with collaborations between community-, social-, and health-focused organisations can contribute to the promotion of independent living and quality of life. In the Urban Health Centres Europe (UHCE) project, five European cities (Greater Manchester, United Kingdom; Pallini (in Greater Athens Area), Greece; Rijeka, Croatia; Rotterdam, the Netherlands; and Valencia, Spain) develop and implement a care template that integrates health and social care and includes a preventive approach...

BACKGROUND: What already is known is that as many as 50% of all Swedish Ambulance Care Service assignments are considered as non-emergency. Therefore, due to medical protocols and triage system, patients are refused conveyance to the Accident and Emergency Department by the Ambulance Care Service. AIM: The aim of this study was to psychometrically explore the construct validity of a possible dimension of person-centredness, developed from a previous published qualitative study in a nonemergency ambulance care context...

BACKGROUND: Spirituality is defined as a search for answers to existential questions about the meaning of life and the individual's relationship with the sacred or transcendent. This relationship may or may not involve affiliation with a specific religion. Studies on spirituality have focused on palliative care, and there are limited studies into the spirituality in the care of older people with dementia. AIM: To describe the experiences of nurses supporting spirituality in the care of older people living with dementia...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To review hospital passports currently in use for people with intellectual disabilities in the United Kingdom and to make recommendations for practice. BACKGROUND: Hospital passports have been introduced internationally to address communication barriers that may limit access to appropriate healthcare for people with intellectual disabilities. They are viewed as promoting patient safety and person-centred care but their format may vary, they are not always used appropriately, and hence their effectiveness may be limited...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This critical review examines the extent that individualised education helps reduce depression, anxiety and improves self-care for people who've undergone Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery (CABG). BACKGROUND: Individualised discharge planning is increasingly important following cardiac surgery due to recurrent admissions as well as the issue of anxiety and depression, often due to lack of preparation. The hospital to home transition is fundamental in the recovery process...

BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for global approaches to palliative care development. Yet it is questionable whether one-size-fits-all solutions can accommodate international disparities in palliative care need. More flexible research methods are called for in order to understand diverse priorities at local levels. This is especially imperative for Indigenous populations and other groups underrepresented in the palliative care evidence-base. Digital storytelling (DST) offers the potential to be one such method...

Alzheimer's is a syndrome mainly suffered by women and the care they need is also mainly provided by other women. The aim of this paper is to describe the profile of users of professional support services and to find out if some socio-demographic factors are linked with those elections. The study was conducted from January to June 2012 thanks to the cooperation of over 41 Alzheimer's Associations in Andalusia, in the south of Spain. A person trained by the main researcher (a social worker or a psychologist) completed the questionnaire during an interview with the caregiver...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Low back pain (LBP) is a lifelong problem for many. In acute episodes, or as a persistent condition, LBP is fluctuating in nature, with pain and other features of the condition varying in intensity and duration over time. Symptom flares (also known as flare ups) contribute to this variation and can have a great impact on the lives of those who have LBP. An important goal of treatments for, and research on, LBP is arguably to decrease symptom flare in both frequency and severity...

Preparing a person-centred nursing workforce to work in diverse settings is a global health priority. Nursing students' first placement experience is a key transitional moment that shapes professional understanding and motivation to become a nurse. This paper reports the outcomes of combining flipped and simulated learning to enhance nursing students' understanding of person-centred care, the professional nursing role and preparation for placement. The study design was exploratory, the setting, an undergraduate nursing program in an Australian University...
