On a Sunday afternoon almost six months ago, we were deeply moved by the news that our Krešimir is no longer with us. The sad news spread from Sarajevo with the speed only most horrible and saddest news can achieve. And everybody who was reached by these news wondered whether it was possible and whether it was true. Because our professor Kostović left us a day before his 48th birthday. Krešimir Kostović was born on the 16th October 1969 in Zagreb, where he completed primary and secondary education. He enrolled at the University of Zagreb School of Medicine in 1988, and got his medical degree in 1995...

OBJECTIVE: Breaking bad news (BBN) should be trained, preferably early and following a helical model with multiple sessions over time, including feedback on performance. It's unclear how medical students evaluate such an approach. METHODS: We gathered student opinions regarding a helical BBN training programme, the feedback and emotional support they received, and the applicability of the skills training immediately after BBN skills training (Q1) and after finishing their clinical clerkships (Q2)...

BACKGROUND: Society always has limited resources to expend on health care, or anything else. What are the unmet medical needs? How do we allocate limited resources to maximize the health and welfare of the people? These challenging questions might be re-examined systematically within an infodemiological frame on a much larger scale, leveraging the latest advancement in information technology and data science. OBJECTIVE: We expanded our previous work by investigating news media data to reveal the coverage of different diseases and medical conditions, together with their sentiments and topics in news articles over three decades...

BACKGROUND: Asymmetries in knowledge and competence in the medical encounter often mean that doctor-patient communication can be compromised. This study explores this issue and examines whether the likelihood of patient question asking is increased following the delivery of diagnostic test results. It also examines whether that likelihood is related to the way in which the test results are delivered. OBJECTIVE: To examine when and how patients initiate questions following diagnostic news announcements...

OBJECTIVES: To examine how medical students notice issues in a vignette and construct their meaning, and how this construction influences their plan to communicate with the patient. METHODS: Following a breaking bad news course for 112 senior medical students, we qualitatively analyzed the participants' written descriptions of the issues they noticed as requiring special attention, using an Immersion/Crystallization iterative consensus process. RESULTS: Different students noticed different issues, but no-one noticed all 19 planted issues (Mean of issues noticed by students = 6...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to utilize sentiment analysis to describe online opinions toward vaginal mesh. We hypothesized that sentiment in legal Web sites would be more negative than that in medical and reference Web sites. METHODS: We generated a list of relevant key words related to vaginal mesh and searched Web sites using the Google search engine. Each unique uniform resource locator (URL) was sorted into 1 of 6 categories: "medical", "legal", "news/media", "patient generated", "reference", or "unrelated"...

CONTEXT: Breaking bad news (BBN) is a challenge that requires multiple professional competencies. BBN teaching often includes didactic and group role-playing sessions. Both are useful and important, but exclude another critical component of students' learning: day-to-day role-model observation in the clinics. Given the importance of observation and the potential benefit of reflective writing in teaching, we have incorporated reflective writing into our BBN course. The aim of this study was to enhance our understanding of the learning potential in reflective writing about BBN encounters and the ability to identify components that inhibit this learning...

There are few reports of the association of nutritional status with in-hospital mortality of acutely ill medical patients in sub-Saharan Africa. This is a prospective observational study comparing the predictive value of mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) of 899 acutely ill medical patients admitted to a resource-poor sub-Saharan hospital with mental alertness, mobility and vital signs. Mid-upper arm circumference ranged from 15 cm to 42 cm, and 12 (24%) of the 50 patients with a MUAC less than 20 cm died (OR 4...

REVIEW
M Roessler, N Eulitz
The scope of emergency calls for emergency medical services staffed by an emergency physician (EMS-EP) includes calls to patients with life-limiting diseases. Symptom exacerbation as well as psychosocial overburdening of caring relatives are the most frequent reasons for activation of an EMS-EP. Pain crises, acute dyspnea, massive bleeding and/or an impending or overt cardiac arrest are the most frequent symptom exacerbations. Under the conditions of a prehospital emergency physician mission, particular challenges are the evaluation of the overall situation, the prognosis and the presumed will of the patient...

The opioid epidemic is dominating news headlines and inspiring greater calls for political action in the United States. While opioid addiction isn't a new issue, its devastating consequences are now being felt across the country. "What's got everybody's attention is that so many people are dying," says Dr. Richard Ries (Figure 1), director of the University of Washington School of Medicine?s addictions divisions and medical director of the Outpatient Addictions Program at Harborview Medical Center, Seattle...

BACKGROUND: The atrocities in Syria have been covered in the four general medical weekly journals in the USA and the UK. Medical journal articles addressing political determinants of public health have rightly described and criticised the international community's failure to enforce humanitarian law while urging global bodies of power to ensure protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure and medical services. Discussions of the political influences on health of people in the occupied Palestinian territory (West Bank and Gaza Strip) seem to be considered politically out-of-bounds by some medical journals...

#20
Mikkel Brabrand, Daniel Pilsgaard Henriksen
IMPORTANCE: The CURB-65 score is widely implemented as a prediction tool for identifying patients with community-acquired pneumonia (cap) at increased risk of 30-day mortality. However, since most ingredients of CURB-65 are used as general prediction tools, it is likely that other prediction tools, e.g. the British National Early Warning Score (NEWS), could be as good as CURB-65 at predicting the fate of CAP patients. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether NEWS is better than CURB-65 at predicting 30-day mortality of CAP patients...
