BACKGROUND: The optimal strategy for monitoring metastatic breast cancer (M-MBC) is unclear. Nevertheless, M-MBC influences patient's quality of life and it affects the use of resources in terms of both drugs and diagnostic exam prescription. We aim to disclose oncologists' approach on M-MBC, identifying controversial areas. METHODS: An anonymous online survey was conducted among GIM members who, based on their on-field experience, shared their own method for M-MBC planning...

We investigated the incidence and predictors of non-adherence towards clinic visits in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients on entecavir or tenofovir treatment. This was a retrospective study of CHB patients treated for at least 3 months in a tertiary referral hospital in The Netherlands. Lack of attendance in clinic visits was defined as a missed follow-up visit without notice. 338 patients (48% Caucasian, 37% Asian) were followed for a median of 3.5 years. During 1283 person-years, 183 scheduled follow-up visits were missed in 101 patients resulting in 0...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 5 to 7% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the treatment of coronary artery disease require chronic oral anticoagulation (OAC) on top of aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist, mainly due to non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). The advent of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) increased treatment options, while there is cumulative evidence that dual combination of a NOAC and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist attenuates risk of bleeding, compared to traditional triple therapy, consisting of a vitamin K antagonist (VKA), aspirin, and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist, without significantly compromising efficacy...

INTRODUCTION: Older adults recently discharged from hospital have greater incidence of adverse events, functional decline, falls and subsequent readmission. Providing education to hospitalised patients on how to prevent falls at home could reduce postdischarge falls. There has been limited research investigating how older adults respond to tailored falls prevention education provided at hospital discharge. The aim of this study is to evaluate how providing tailored falls prevention education to older patients at the point of, and immediately after hospital discharge in addition to usual care, affects engagement in falls prevention strategies in the 6-months postdischarge period, including their capability and motivation to engage in falls prevention strategies...

INTRODUCTION: Delirium, which is prevalent in postcardiac surgical patients, is an acute brain dysfunction characterised by disturbances in attention, awareness and cognition not explained by a pre-existing neurocognitive disorder. The pathophysiology of delirium remains poorly understood. However, basic science and clinical studies suggest that sleep disturbance may be a modifiable risk factor for the development of delirium. Dexmedetomidine is a α-2A adrenergic receptor agonist medication that patterns the activity of various arousal nuclei similar to sleep...
