Background Electronic consultation systems allow primary care providers to receive timely speciality expertise via iterative electronic communication. The use of such systems is expanding across the USA with well-documented high levels of user satisfaction. We characterise the educational impact for primary care providers of a long-standing integrated electronic consultation and referral system. Methods Primary care providers' perceptions of the educational value inherent to electronic consultation system communication and the impact on their ability to manage common speciality clinical conditions and questions were examined by electronic survey using five-point Likert scales...

This Point/Counterpoint acknowledges the transformation of dental practice from a predominantly technically based profession with primary emphasis on restoration of the tooth and its supporting structures to that of a more medically based specialty focusing on the oral and maxillofacial complex. While both viewpoints accept the importance of this transformation, they differ on the ultimate desired outcome and how changes should be implemented during training of dentists as oral health professionals. Viewpoint 1 argues that, in response to a shortage of both primary care providers and access to affordable oral health care, dentists need to be able and willing to provide limited preventive primary care (LPPC), and dental educators should develop and implement training models to prepare them...

INTRODUCTION: Health worker shortages pose a challenge to the scale-up of HIV care and treatment in Uganda. Training mid-level providers (MLP) in the provision of HIV and TB treatment can expand existing health workforce capacity and access to HIV services. METHODS: We conducted a cluster-randomized trial of, on-site clinical mentorship for HIV and TB care at 10 health facilities in rural Uganda. Twenty MLP and were randomly assigned to an intervention of eight hours a week of one on one mentorship, every six weeks over a nine month period; and another twenty to the control of no clinical mentorship...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of using mid-level providers for dental "check-up" examinations and the treatment of caries in different NHS settings in the United Kingdom. Mid-level providers are a broad category that describes non-dentist members of dental teams. This study focused on the potential use of Dental Hygiene Therapists undertaking dental "check-up" examinations and simple restorative treatment, instead of dentists. METHODS: A Markov model was used to construct the natural history of caries development in adults that visit a dental practice every six months over a five-year period...

INTRODUCTION: Horizontal violence (HV) is malicious behavior perpetrated by healthcare workers against each other. These include bullying, verbal or physical threats, purposeful disruptive behavior, and other malicious behaviors. This pilot study investigates the prevalence of HV among emergency department (ED) attending physicians, residents, and mid-level providers (MLPs). METHODS: We sent an electronic survey to emergency medicine attending physicians (n=67), residents (n=25), and MLPs (n=24) in three unique EDs within a single multi-hospital medical system...

BACKGROUND: Task shifting from established health professionals to mid-level providers (MLPs) (professionals who undergo shorter training in specific procedures) is one key strategy for reducing maternal and neonatal deaths. This has resulted in a growth in cadre types providing obstetric care in low and middle-income countries. Little is known about the relative importance of the different factors in determining motivation and retention amongst these cadres. METHODS: This paper presents findings from large sample (1972 respondents) discrete choice experiments to examine the employment preferences of obstetric care workers across three east African countries...

BACKGROUND: Echocardiographic screening for rheumatic heart disease in asymptomatic children may result in early diagnosis and prevent progression. Physician-led screening is not feasible in Malawi. Task shifting to mid-level providers such as clinical officers may enable more widespread screening. Hypothesis With short-course training, clinical officers can accurately screen for rheumatic heart disease using focussed echocardiography. METHODS: A total of eight clinical officers completed three half-days of didactics and 2 days of hands-on echocardiography training...

BACKGROUND: Computed tomography (CT) is a useful and necessary part of many emergency department (ED) assessments. However, the costs of imaging and the health risks associated with radiation exposure have sparked national efforts to reduce CT ordering in EDs. STUDY OBJECTIVE: We analyzed CT ordering habits prior to and following implementation of a feedback tool at a community hospital. METHODS: In this intervention study, we identified the CT-ordering habits of physicians and mid-level care providers (physician assistants and nurse practitioners) at baseline and after implementation of a system that sent quarterly feedback reports comparing their ordering habits with those of their peers...

BACKGROUND: In sub-Saharan Africa, the capacity of human resources for health (HRH) managers to create positive practice environments that enable motivated, productive, and high-performing HRH is weak. We implemented a unique approach to examining HRH management practices by comparing perspectives offered by mid-level providers (MLPs) of emergency obstetric care (EmOC) in Tanzania to those presented by local health authorities, known as council health management teams (CHMTs). METHODS: This study was guided by the basic strategic human resources management (SHRM) component model...

OBJECTIVES: The prevalence of overweight and obese individuals in the United States is growing, and primary health care represents a setting in which providers may address weight with their patients. However, many providers and medical trainees feel ill-prepared to address the full scope of complexities associated with weight loss. This study sought to investigate patients' perceptions of the barriers and facilitators they encountered in their weight loss journeys. The results of the mixed-methods study will be used to inform a better understanding among providers and medical students of how to address weight loss with their patients...

BACKGROUND: There has been concern that greater use of nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistants (PA) in face-to-face primary care may increase utilization and spending. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate a natural experiment within Kaiser Permanente in Georgia in the use of NP/PA in primary care. STUDY DESIGN: From 2006 through early 2008 (the preperiod), each NP or PA was paired with a physician to manage a patient panel. In early 2008, NPs and PAs were removed from all face-to-face primary care...

BACKGROUND: A question prompt sheet (QPS) is a structured list of potential questions available for patients to ask their doctor during a clinical encounter. Although it has been shown to improve physician-patient interaction during clinical consultations, there is paucity of data on its use in the palliative care setting. The aim of this study was to develop a single-page consensus list of prompt questions for use by patients attending outpatient palliative care. METHOD: An expert group of experienced physicians and mid-level providers were invited to participate in the study conducted in three Delphi rounds...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to explore low-income parents' perceptions of oral health and of mid-level dental providers as a means of improving access to care. As states increasingly consider adding mid-level providers to the dental workforce, understanding the views of potential patients toward such providers is important, since the success of this strategy will depend, in part, upon the willingness of potential patients to be treated by them. METHODS: Because little is known about the social acceptability of mid-level dental providers, the researchers employed a qualitative methodology, conducting in-depth interviews with 20 low-income parents in order to assess their perceptions of oral health, access to and need for dental care, and potential acceptance of mid-level dental providers...

BACKGROUND: Although sexual and reproductive health services have become more available in humanitarian settings over the last decade, safe abortion services are still rarely provided. The authors' observations suggest that four reasons are typically given for this gap: 'There's no need'; 'Abortion is too complicated to provide in crises'; 'Donors don't fund abortion services'; and 'Abortion is illegal'. DISCUSSION: However, each of these reasons is based on false premises...

Zambia has one of the most liberal abortion laws in sub-Saharan Africa. However, rates of unsafe abortion remain high with negative health and economic consequences. Little is known about the economic burden on women of abortion care-seeking in low income countries. The majority of studies focus on direct costs (e.g. hospital fees). This article estimates the individual-level economic burden of safe and unsafe abortion care-seeking in Zambia, incorporating all indirect and direct costs. It uses data collected in 2013 from a tertiary hospital in Lusaka, (n = 112) with women who had an abortion...
