As reimbursements are increasingly linked to patient experience, physicians and hospitals will need to find ways to incorporate patient and family input into operational decisions. Rather than starting from the beginning, health systems could learn from practitioners who have been experimenting in this space and are willing to share their experience. The authors share lessons learned from two decades of experience incorporating patient and family advisers into the clinical operation of a radiology department and the resulting culture change...

Since 1986, health promotion has had a place within the U.S. Department of Defense. Emphasizing the leading health indicators of Healthy People, the role of health promotion has continued to support the U.S. Armed Forces in perhaps one of the most challenging decades of wartime operations. Serving a sizable population with both typical and mission-related health issues, health promotion plays a critical role in maintaining and improving health. The purpose of this article is to highlight military health promotion by offering insight into the day-to-day life of a "boots on the ground" military health educator, reviewing the challenges and opportunities of working with a unique population...

INTRODUCTION: Despite significant progress made in the field of safety in anesthesia, morbidity (serious or not, completely or partially related to anesthesia) remains common and no health practitioner is immune from accidents. In the current context where priority is given to training programmes, to quality and safety improvement in health care, the occurrence of an anesthesia-related accident in the surgery department is an extremely traumatic event. The fear of prosecution, the emotional context make it difficult to manage...

BACKGROUND: A level 1 community hospital with a labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum (LDRP) unit delivering over 2800 babies per year was operating without dedicated neonatal resuscitation and stabilization support. PURPOSE: With lack of funding and space to provide an onsite level 2 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a position was created to provide neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) coverage to support the LDRP unit. METHOD: The article describes the innovative solution of having an NNP team rotate from a regional neonatal intensive care program to a busy community LDRP unit...

BACKGROUND: Coordinated health service utilisation in the ambulatory care sector is of major interest from a health policy perspective. This ecological study investigates the interplay between medical care utilisation in hospital outpatient departments and in freestanding physician practices by drawing on the example of the Austrian healthcare system, which is standing out due to three features: ambulatory care is provided by both free-standing public (contract) and private (non-contract) practitioners; medical specialists operate in free-standing physician practices and in hospital outpatient departments; essentially, no gatekeeping is in place...

: Introduction In preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games, existing syndromic surveillance systems operating in England were expanded to include daily general practitioner (GP) out-of-hours (OOH) contacts and emergency department (ED) attendances at sentinel sites (the GP OOH and ED syndromic surveillance systems: GPOOHS and EDSSS). Hypothesis/Problem The further development of syndromic surveillance systems in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games provided a unique opportunity to investigate the impact of a large mass-gathering event on public health and health services as monitored in near real-time by syndromic surveillance of GP OOH contacts and ED attendances...

INTRODUCTION: Timely, appropriate intervention is key to improving outcomes in many emergent conditions. In rural areas, it is particularly challenging to assure quality, timely emergency care. The TelEmergency (TE) program, which utilizes a dual nurse practitioner and emergency medicine-trained, board-certified physician model, has the potential to improve access to quality emergency care in rural areas. The objective of this study was to examine how the implementation of the TE program impacts rural hospital Emergency Department (ED) operations...

Tooth extraction is a treatment that can be carried out by general dental practitioners. It is suspected that the number of referrals to OMF-surgeons for simple tooth extractions has increased in the Netherlands in recent years. In a study, the health records of 2 groups of outpatients treated at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department of a university medical centre between 1996 and 2014 were investigated. Patients who had undergone tooth extractions were included. The complexity of the tooth extractions was analyzed according to 4 criteria...

: Aim To assess and improve the quality of Secondary to Primary Care communication on discharge with a focus on post-surgical wound care. BACKGROUND: Hospital discharge summaries are the principle means of relaying accurate information back to primary care healthcare providers regarding a patient's hospital attendance and any ongoing care that is required. The quality of these summaries can be quiet varied both nationally and local to our Trust. Subsequently the Surgical Directorate were seeing an increased level of additional emergency communication from Primary Care providers especially in relation to post-operative wound care...

OBJECTIVE: Emergency Departments and General Practitioner co-operatives collaborate increasingly in Urgent Care Collaborations (UCCs) by sharing one combined entrance and joint triage. The aim of this study is to examine the difference between UCCs and providers who operate separately with respect to the efficiency of patient flow. METHODS: This study had a cross-sectional observational design comparing three regions with UCC with three regions with usual care. Outcome measures were efficiency of patient flow, defined as a reducing length of stay (LOS), waiting time (WT) and the mean number of handovers...

The use of detention for psychiatric treatment is widespread and sometimes necessary. International human rights law requires a legal framework to safeguard the rights to liberty and personal integrity by preventing arbitrary detention. However, research suggests that extra-legal factors may influence decisions to detain. This article presents observational and interview data to describe how decisions to detain are made in practice in one jurisdiction (England and Wales) where a tension between policy and practice has been described...

Large, complex, multi-stakeholder exercises are the culmination of years of gradual progression through a comprehensive training and exercise programme. Exercises intended to validate training, refine procedures and test processes initially tested in isolation are combined to ensure seamless response and coordination during actual crises. The challenges of integrating timely and accurate situational awareness from an array of sources, including response agencies, municipal departments, partner agencies and the public, on an ever-growing range of media platforms, increase information management complexity in emergencies...

INTRODUCTION: Most emergency physicians routinely obtain shoulder radiographs before and after shoulder dislocations. However, currently there is limited literature demonstrating how frequently new fractures are identified on post-reduction radiographs. The primary objective of this study was to determine the frequency of new, clinically significant fractures identified on post-reduction radiographs with a secondary outcome assessing total new fractures identified. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review using appropriate International Classification of Diseases, 9(th) Revision (ICD-9) codes to identify all potential shoulder dislocations that were reduced in a single, urban, academic emergency department (ED) over a five-year period...
