AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this paper is to describe CAD -patients' perceptions of family involvement in rehabilitation and the connection between background factors and family involvement. BACKGROUND: CAD-patients hospital stays can be very concise. Family members can support rehabilitation, but many challenges can emerge. There is a need to nurture patients and family members in an individual way and to recognize their concerns. More accurate patient education should be available for patients and their family members...

Families of children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis need a way to interact with Patient Education Materials (PEM) so that learning occurs at their own pace, on topics that are relevant to them. This paper proposes a novel, dialogue-based approach to address these needs. Using an extended version of Toulmin's model of argument as a theory-based classification method, we digitized paper-based PEM to render an interactive dialogue. The dialogue allows the user to explore a topic with respect to their interests and apprehensions as opposed to providing a static, generic document...

In Denmark, patients being treated on Haematology Outpatients Departments get instructed to self-manage their blood sample collection from Central Venous Catheter (CVC). However, this is a complex and risky procedure, which can jeopardize patient safety. The aim of the study was to suggest a method for developing standard digital patient education programs for patients in self-administration of blood samples drawn from CVC. The Design Science Research Paradigm was used to develop a digital patient education program, called PAVIOSY, to increase patient safety during execution of the blood sample collection procedure by using videos for teaching as well as procedural support...

Given the potential harm associated with anticoagulant use, patient education is often provided as a standard of care and emphasized across healthcare settings. Effective anticoagulation education involves face-to-face interaction with a trained professional who ensures that the patient understands the risks involved, the precautions that should be taken, and the need for regular monitoring. The teaching should be tailored to each patient, accompanied with written resources and utilize the teach-back method...

Patient educators come into the field from diverse professional backgrounds and often lack training in how to teach and develop patient education resources since no formal patient education professional certification program exists. A professional certification program for patient educators would further define the professional scope of practice and reduce variability in performance. The purpose of this study was to (1) determine the level of interest among Canadian cancer patient educators in a patient education professional certification program and (2) determine the competencies to be included in the professional certification program...

Addison's disease, or primary adrenocortical insufficiency, is a long-term, potentially severe, rare endocrine disorder. In pregnancy, it is even rarer. We report the case of a 30-year-old pregnant patient with Addison's disease, referred to Obstetrics-Endocrinology specialty consult at 14 weeks gestation. She had been to the emergency department of her local hospital various times during the first trimester presenting with a clinical scenario suggestive of glucocorticoid under-replacement (nausea, persistent vomiting and hypotension), but this was interpreted as normal pregnancy symptoms...

Interferon-beta (IFNβ) are effective treatments for relapsing multiple sclerosis. IFNβ treatment includes subcutaneous (sc) IFNβ-1b, intramuscular and sc IFNβ-1a, and sc pegylated IFNβ-1a (PEG-IFNβ-1a). PEG-IFNβ-1a offers the advantage of a prolonged duration of action with a less frequent administration (every 2 weeks) and a higher patient adherence. However, the use of subcutaneous interferons could be characterized by potential skin toxicity. Injection site reactions (ISRs), featured by erythema, edema, pain and pruritus, are the most common adverse reactions...

Synopsis Hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA) are among the leading causes of global disability, highlighting the need for early, targeted, and effective treatments. The benefits on symptoms and impairments of exercise therapy in people with hip and knee OA are substantial and supported by high-quality evidence, underlining that it should be part of first line treatment offered to all people with hip and knee OA in clinical practice. Furthermore, unlike other treatments for OA such as analgesia and surgery, exercise therapy is not associated with risk of serious harm...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies revealed that patients preferred plastic surgeons over cosmetic surgeons for surgical procedures, but few knew that any physician with a medical degree was legally qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. Results also indicated that a primary consideration for patients in selecting a surgeon was board certification. Although patient preferences concerning aesthetic surgery have previously been surveyed, no study examined a consumer's ability delineate between specialties based on Web sites...

BACKGROUND: Chronic peripheral joint pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) is extremely prevalent and a major cause of physical dysfunction and psychosocial distress. Exercise is recommended to reduce joint pain and improve physical function, but the effect of exercise on psychosocial function (health beliefs, depression, anxiety and quality of life) in this population is unknown. OBJECTIVES: To improve our understanding of the complex inter-relationship between pain, psychosocial effects, physical function and exercise...

Written patient education materials are essential to motivate and help patients to participate in their own care, but the production and management of a large collection of high-quality and easily accessible patient education documents can be challenging. Ontologies can aid in these tasks, but the existing resources are not directly applicable to patient education. An ontology that models patient education documents and their readers was constructed. The Delphi method was used to identify a compact but sufficient set of entities with which the topics of documents may be described...

Concurrent cisplatin based chemoradiotherapy(CRT)is the standard of care for patients with locoregionally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck(LA-SCCHN). Based on the Bonner trial showing the superiority of cetuximab plus radiotherapy to radiotherapy alone, cetuximab based bioradiotherapy(BRT)is considered as an alternative for patients with LA-SCCHN. However, the non-inferiority of BRT compared to CRT has not yet been demonstrated. Furthermore, severe mucositis and dermatitis induced by BRT cannot be neglected...
