In recent years, the emergency medical services in Wiesbaden and the Rheingau-Taunus district made great efforts to standardise structures. Since there are only few established procedures in the annual examinations for paramedics, there is reason to assume that treatment procedures for patients have not been standardised either. Materials and equipment are not handled uniformly, and employee satisfaction has significantly decreased over the last few years. To solve these problems, all paramedics undergo standardised and structured trainings...

Hundreds of validated evidence-based intervention programs (EBIP) aim to improve families' well-being; however, most are not broadly adopted. As an alternative diffusion strategy, we created wellness centers to reach families' everyday lives with a prevention framework. At two wellness centers, one in a middle-class neighborhood and one in a low-income neighborhood, popular local activity leaders (instructors of martial arts, yoga, sports, music, dancing, Zumba), and motivated parents were trained to be Family Mentors...

BACKGROUND: Although women comprise an increasing proportion of US medical school faculty, they are underrepresented at higher ranks. Lack of effective mentoring may contribute to this disparity. We examined the role of academic rank, research focus, parenting, and part-time work on mentoring importance, needs, and gaps. METHODS: In 2009, women faculty members of Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine were invited by e-mail to participate in a 28-item structured questionnaire...

PURPOSE: Acquired perineal hernias through the reconstructed pelvic floor can complicate radical pelvic operations including abdominoperineal resection of rectum. Operative intervention is indicated for symptomatic hernias. There is a lack of consensus as to the best operative technique. Here we present a novel method for repairing perineal herniation using saline-filled tissue expanders. METHODS: Perineal hernia repair may be affected either via an abdominal or via a perineal approach...

In the practice of nursing, organizations with progressive evidence-based practice programs implement structures and processes whereby nurses are engaged in the review of existing research and in the development of clinical practice documents to better align nursing practices with the best available scientific knowledge. At our academic hospital system, clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) took the lead to help transform a traditional nursing policy and procedure committee into a hospital-wide, staff-represented Clinical Practice Council (CPC) that ensures evidence-based nursing practices are reflected in the organization's nursing practice documents for the provision of patient care...

BACKGROUND: Art therapy is used in the whole field of psycho-oncological maintenance to support coping mechanisms with creative techniques. Previous studies stated effects of art therapy just by referring to the participants' ratings. This study wants to extend the perspective by including the views of all involved parties--participating patients, dropouts, art therapist and supervisor. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We developed and tested an art therapy programme for cancer patients...

BACKGROUND: The demand for bilateral mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction has increased in recent years, primarily due to the development of genetic testing. The aim of this study was to evaluate if there was a difference between anatomically shaped and round permanent expandable implants in one-stage bilateral breast reconstruction after bilateral prophylactic mastectomy. METHODS: The anatomically shaped permanent expander implant McGhan Style 150 (Inamed, Santa Barbara, Calif...

INTRODUCTION: Round expander-implants (Beckers 25 and 50) and anatomical expander-prostheses filled with firm cohesive gel (McGhan Style 150) are established choices for single-stage expander breast reconstruction. Because of their drawbacks we selectively adopted the anatomical Becker-35 expander-implant filled with soft cohesive gel from January 2005. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients undergoing reconstructive breast surgery using the Contour Profile Becker-35 expandable implant over a two-year period were retrospectively reviewed with respect to indication, implant sizes, inflation details, complications and outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: This article describes the process and preliminary findings that a department of psychiatry developed to meet a new Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) educational standard known as ED-2. METHOD: At an educational retreat, 92% of faculty and 56% of residents who attended developed the types of patient symptoms all students should see and document during a 6-week psychiatry rotation. Data from the first three rotations were collected, including the opinions of faculty and students...

To prepare their students and residents for the practice of medicine in a rapidly changing environment, medical educators must teach the business of medicine as well as the science and art of medicine. Recognizing the value of and demand for physician leaders, the authors sought to introduce residents to diverse aspects of medical administration within the context of an academically rigorous internal medicine residency program. The Physician Management Pathway (PMP) was developed in 1997 to expose interested residents to the management concepts employed by physician managers; to help physician trainees begin to develop the leadership and technical skills they will use as physician managers; to provide career mentoring; to provide experiences that enrich the resident's training in clinical medicine; to enhance resident-directed educational activities; and to produce physicians who can successfully work in any health care environment...

The ability to effectively and efficiently develop competent head nurses is a major challenge in today's health care environment. Memorial Hospital of South Bend, IN, a 526-bed tertiary care facility, faced this challenge. As a result, a program was developed that reduced the learning time of newly appointed head nurses. Mentoring and hands-on practical learning strategies were used. This article describes (1) the reasons for developing a competency-based head nurse orientation program, (2) the steps necessary for its implementation, (3) the benefits of such a program, and (4) the results of the program at Memorial Hospital...
