Minimal literature exists describing the process for development of a Joint Commission comprehensive spine surgery program within a community hospital health system. Components of a comprehensive program include structured communication across care settings, preoperative education, quality outcomes tracking, and patient follow-up. Organizations obtaining disease-specific certification must have clear knowledge of the planning, time, and overall commitment, essential to developing a successful program. Health systems benefit from disease-specific certification because of their commitment to a higher standard of service...

BACKGROUND: Antipsychotic polypharmacy is defined as the concomitant prescribing of more than 1 antipsychotic medication for an individual patient. Despite clinical guideline recommendations, long-acting injectable antipsychotics (LAIAs) are often used together with oral antipsychotics (OAPs) to treat a variety of psychiatric illnesses. Little research exists to address this form of antipsychotic polypharmacy, and its role in therapy is poorly understood. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the prevalence of this prescribing pattern at our facility, identify provider rationale for polypharmacy, and analyze trends...

Over the past 2 decades, a large number of guidelines for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) management have been proposed. The primary aim of these "evidence-based" guidelines is to improve the care of aSAH patients by summarizing and making current knowledge readily available to clinicians. However, an investigation into aSAH guidelines, their changes along time and their successful translation into clinical practice is still lacking.We performed a literature search of historical events and subarachnoid hemorrhage guidelines using the Entrez PubMed NIH, Embase, and Cochrane databases for articles published up to November of 2016...

Traumatic spinal cord injuries have a tremendous impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole. Substantial heterogeneity in the patient population, their presentation and underlying pathophysiology has sparked debates along the care spectrum from initial assessment to definitive treatment. This article reviews spinal cord injury (SCI) management followed by a discussion of the salient controversies in the field. Current care practices modeled on the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons joint section guidelines are highlighted including key recommendations regarding immobilization, avoidance of hypotension, early International Standards for Neurological Classification of SCI examination and intensive care unit treatment...

Hypertension represents a major burden in Asia, with a high prevalence rate but poor level of awareness and control reported in many countries in the region. Home blood pressure monitoring has been validated as an accurate and reliable measure of blood pressure that can help guide hypertension treatment as well as identify masked and white-coat hypertension. Despite its benefits, there has been limited research into home blood pressure monitoring in Asia. The authors reviewed the current evidence on home blood pressure monitoring in Asia, including but not limited to published literature, data presented at congresses, and national hypertension management guidelines to determine the current utilization of home blood pressure monitoring in clinical practice in the region...

AIM AND OBJECTIVE: To explore new graduate nurses' experiences with recognition and prevention of failure to rescue. BACKGROUND: Failure to rescue is recognized as a quality of care indicator, a core measure of nursing care in hospitals, and a determinant for staffing in acute care facilities. Clinical reasoning is an essential component in preventing failure to rescue and should be emphasized in nursing education and new graduate orientation. Many nurses graduate without the ability to use clinical reasoning in providing patient care which can lead to adverse patient outcomes...

AIM: Population pharmacokinetic modelling has been widely used across many therapeutic areas to identify sources of variability, which are incorporated into models as covariate factors. Despite numerous publications on pharmacokinetic (PK) drug-drug interactions (DDIs) between antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), such data are not used to support the dose rationale for polytherapy in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Here we assess the impact of DDIs on plasma concentrations and evaluate the need for AED dose adjustment...

AIMS: In response to concerns regarding resource expenditures required to fully implement the 2012 NIA-AA Sponsored Guidelines for the neuropathologic assessment of Alzheimer's disease (AD), we previously developed a sensitive and cost-reducing Condensed Protocol (CP) at the University of Washington (UW) Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) that consolidated the recommended NIA-AA protocol into fewer cassettes requiring fewer immunohistochemical stains. The CP was not designed to replace NIA-AA protocols, but instead to make the NIA-AA criteria accessible to clinical and forensic neuropathology practices where resources limit full implementation of NIA-AA guidelines...

Clinicians and clinical decision-support systems often follow pharmacotherapy recommendations for patients based on clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). In multimorbid patients, these recommendations can potentially have clinically significant drug-drug interactions (DDIs). In this study, we describe and validate a method for programmatically detecting DDIs among CPG recommendations. The system extracts pharmacotherapy intervention recommendations from narrative CPGs, normalizes the terms, creates a mapping of drugs and drug classes, and then identifies occurrences of DDIs between CPG pairs...

The use of pharmacogenomics (PGx) in clinical practice still faces challenges to fully adopt genetic information in targeting drug therapy. To incorporate genetics into clinical practice, many support the use of Pharmacogenomics Clinical Decision Support Systems (PGx-CDS) for medication prescriptions. This support was fueled by new guidelines to incorporate genetics for optimizing drug dosage and reducing adverse events. In addition, the complexity of PGx led to exploring CDS outside the paradigm of the basic CDS tools embedded in commercial electronic health records...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide and yet remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. Early detection is important, because PAD is strongly associated with an increased risk of mortality and morbidity. In this study, we built a PAD surveillance system using natural language processing (NLP) for early detection of PAD from narrative clinical notes. Our NLP algorithm had excellent positive predictive value (0.93) and identified 41% of PAD cases before the initial ankle-brachial index (ABI) test date while in 12% of cases the NLP algorithm detected PAD on the same date as the ABI (the gold standard for comparison)...

The standard of care for most patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is immunotherapy with intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), which activates the immune system to recognize and destroy malignant cells and has demonstrated durable clinical benefit. Urologic best-practice guidelines and consensus reports have been developed and strengthened based on data on the timing, dose, and duration of therapy from randomized clinical trials, as well as by critical evaluation of criteria for progression...
