Comparative effectivesness

David P Johnson, Whitney L Browning, James C Gay, Derek J Williams
OBJECTIVE: To determine pediatric hospitalists' perceptions about residents' effects on cost and quality of care and their own ability to provide and teach cost-effective, high-quality care. METHODS: A 15-item survey assessing hospitalist perceptions of resident impact on costs/quality and their role in teaching cost-effectiveness was developed and sent to 180 hospitalists from 113 institutions in the United States. RESULTS: Of 180 hospitalists surveyed, 127 completed surveys (71%)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this project was to determine the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of hysterectomy, first- and second-generation endometrial ablation (EA), and Mirena® (Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Pittsburgh, PA, USA) for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding. DESIGN: Individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis of existing randomised controlled trials to determine the short- to medium-term effects of hysterectomy, EA and Mirena. A population-based retrospective cohort study based on record linkage to investigate the long-term effects of ablative techniques and hysterectomy in terms of failure rates and complications...

Several studies have been performed to assess the effectivesness of the antibacterial coating of a biomaterial to reduce surgical site infection. However, evaluations of these materials are inconsistent, and therefore it is difficult to compare their antibacterial performance. In this study, we evaluated the influence of different media such as nutrient broth (NB), Mueller-Hinton broth (MHB) and fetal bovine serum (FBS) on the antibacterial activity of AgNO3- or gentamicin-added bone cement using a modified ISO 22196 standard to devise a method to evaluate the antibacterial activity of biomaterials in vitro...
