INTRODUCTION: The health information needs, information source preferences and engagement behaviours of women with metastatic breast cancer (mBC) depend on personal characteristics such as education level, prior knowledge, clinical complications, comorbidities and where they are in the cancer journey. A thorough understanding of the information behaviours of women living with mBC is essential to the provision of optimal care. A preliminary literature review suggests that there is little research on this topic, but that there may be lessons from a slightly broader literature...

To evaluate the impact of a Perinatal Medical Case Management (PCM) Program for women living with HIV (WLWH). Characteristics of pregnant and postpartum WLWH were compared between those who engaged in PCM and those who did not. Using secondary data collected from routine HIV surveillance, multivariable regression models were used to evaluate the association between PCM and four outcomes adapted from the HIV care continuum. In multivariable models, compared to WLWH not in PCM, participants (n = 448, 52.8%) were almost twice as likely to achieve HIV suppression before delivery (aOR 1...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) risk is elevated for individuals with an opioid use disorder (OUD). Routine HCV testing is recommended for high-risk individuals, including those with an injection drug use history. HCV antibody testing addresses the first step in the HCV treatment care cascade, with uptake and completion of HCV treatment among individuals with chronic HCV as the optimal care cascade endpoint. The aim of this study was to characterize self-reported HCV treatment cascade outcomes among individuals with an OUD in outpatient medication assisted treatment (MAT)...

Although HIV services are expanding, few have reached the scale necessary to support universal viral suppression of individuals living with HIV. The purpose of this systematic review was to summarize the qualitative evidence evaluating public health HIV interventions to enhance linkage to care, antiretroviral drug (ARV) adherence, and retention in care. We searched 19 databases without language restrictions. The review collated data from three separate qualitative evidence reviews addressing each of the three outcomes along the care continuum...

REVIEW
Fiona Winterbottom, Misty Jenkins
Solid organ transplantation has become a well-established standard of care for end-organ failure, and the nurse in the intensive care unit may be exposed to these patients at any stage in the care continuum of pretransplant or posttransplant care. Knowledge of risk factors, timing, and treatments for infections may help to enhance clinical practices and optimize patient safety and clinical outcomes.

In Thailand, young men who have sex with men (YMSM) and transgender women (TG) are disproportionately affected by HIV and have suboptimal care continuum outcomes. Although Thai YMSM and young TG are early adopters of emerging technologies and have high Internet and technology access and utilization, the potential of technology has not been harnessed to optimize the HIV treatment cascade. We interviewed 18 behaviorally HIV-infected YMSM and young TG regarding care challenges, identified how eHealth could address care needs, and elicited preferences for eHealth interventions...

: 256 Background: Institutional implementation of a standard pregnancy screening policy for women will enhance the safe and timely delivery of treatment throughout the care continuum. In 2012, we developed and implemented an initial policy on pregnancy screening test (PST). The policy indicated that all providers should fully discuss with their female patients of child bearing potential regarding the potential risks of cancer treatment on fertility and the adverse effects on the fetus...

: 210 Background: Effectively managing comorbidities is an essential component of high-quality cancer care. Evidence suggests colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with multiple comorbid conditions are less likely to complete standard treatments and can have lower rates of survival. In order to provide personalized care, it is critical to understand how comorbid conditions cluster within CRC patients. METHODS: We identified Kaiser Permanente Southern California CRC patients diagnosed with first malignancy between 01/01/2008 - 12/31/2013...

: 109 Background: Disease Pathway Management (DPM) is used by Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) to set priorities for cancer control, plan cancer services, and improve the quality of care in Ontario by promoting standardization. The DPM approach applies a framework to examine the performance of the entire system from prevention to end of life care, and to identify any gaps within the system. In 2014, DPM began its breast cancer pathway initiative by mapping the patient journey, depicting evidence-based best practice along the breast cancer care continuum, identifying where further guidance is needed for clinical decision making, and identifying gaps in quality of care and performance measurement indicators...

Since the release of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) (1) and the establishment of the federal Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Care Continuum Initiative (2), federal efforts have accelerated to improve and increase HIV testing, care, and treatment and to reduce HIV-related disparities in the United States. National HIV Surveillance System (NHSS)* data are used to monitor progress toward reaching NHAS goals,(†) and recent data indicate that blacks have lower levels of care and viral suppression than do persons of other racial and ethnic groups (3)...

The HIV care continuum is a tool that describes the quality of HIV care for people living with HIV and assess the extent to which achieve the goal of viral suppression. In 2014, we conducted a retrospective cross-sectional study to assess the characteristics associated with three steps of the HIV continuum of care in Italy (i.e., most recent diagnoses, people diagnosed and in care who are on therapy, and people with viral load (VL) suppressed among those on therapy). Among the 10,262 individuals diagnosed and linked to care, 9,810 (95...

BACKGROUND: Because many people who inject drugs (PWID) are at high risk of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and have poor access to medical care, many HCV-infected PWID remain undiagnosed and unaccounted for in surveillance systems. Syringe exchange programs (SEPs) are an under-utilized resource for collecting information missing from surveillance systems. Partnerships with public health agencies represent a potentially innovative approach to studying the HCV epidemic for PWID. The goal of this study was to characterize the HCV care continuum for a cohort of PWID using database linkages...

In the United States (US), there are high levels of disengagement along the HIV care continuum. We sought to characterize the heterogeneity in research studies and interventions to improve care engagement among people living with diagnosed HIV infection. We performed a systematic literature search for interventions to improve HIV linkage to care, retention in care, reengagement in care and adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the US published from 2007-mid 2015. Study designs and outcomes were allowed to vary in included studies...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Healthcare worldwide is evolving to yield enhanced care provided at a lowered cost. Patient-centric paradigms that hasten surgical recovery and strengthen collaboration amongst medical professionals are gaining impetus. This review will discuss the changing healthcare landscape and outline its implications on anesthesiology practice. RECENT FINDINGS: Anesthesiologists must be nimble and versatile as they adapt to healthcare redesign. An increased responsibility for patient outcomes should be embraced by extending the breadth and depth of clinical practice throughout the surgical care continuum...

Care coordination that improves patient care and patient outcomes is becoming increasingly necessary as bundled payment programs are developed. Rather than looking at each aspect of the patient's care, the entire care continuum from preoperative preparation through completion of the episode will become the norm. The length of the episode of care may be 30 days or as long as 90 days. The transition to different care providers during that episode requires information sharing. This is best accomplished by a technology platform that allows for real-time information sharing...

BACKGROUND: Retention in care is the most challenging step along the HIV care continuum. Many patients who engage in care and achieve viral suppression have care interruptions, characterized by moving in and out of care ("churn"). Poor retention has clinical consequences and contributes to new HIV transmissions, but how to predict or prevent it remains elusive. This study sought to understand the relationship between individual- and structural-level barriers, and poor retention for persons living with HIV/AIDS in Atlanta, GA...

BACKGROUND: Improved detection and linkage to care of previously undiagnosed HIV infections require innovative approaches to testing. We sought to determine the feasibility of targeted HIV testing in geographic areas, defined by continuum of care parameters, to identify HIV-infected persons needing linkage or engagement in care. METHODS: Using HIV surveillance data from Washington, DC, we identified census tracts that had an HIV prevalence >1% and were either above (higher risk areas-HRAs) or below (lower risk areas-LRAs) the median for 3 indicators: monitored viral load, proportion of persons out of care (OOC), and never in care...
