BACKGROUND: Although bodies of evidence on copayment effects on access to care and quality of care in general have not been conclusive, allowing copayment in the case of emergency medical conditions might pose a high risk of delayed treatment leading to avoidable disability or death. METHODS: Using mixed-methods approach to draw evidence from multiple sources (over 40,000 records of administrative dataset of Thai emergency medical services, in-depth interviews, telephone survey of users and documentary review), we are were able to shed light on the existence of copayment and its related factors in the Thai healthcare system despite the presence of universal health coverage since 2001...

BACKGROUND: There is a large volume of health information available, and, if applied in clinical practice, may contribute to effective patient care. Despite an abundance of information, sub-optimal care is common. Many factors influence practitioners' use of health information, and format (electronic or other) may be one such factor. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of interventions aimed at improving or increasing healthcare practitioners' use of electronic health information (EHI) on professional practice and patient outcomes...

BACKGROUND: : Qualitative research can inform the development of asthma patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures and user-friendly technologies through defining measurement constructs, identifying potential limitations in measurement and sources of response error, and evaluating usability. OBJECTIVE: : To inform the development of a comprehensive asthma PRO assessment with input from patients and clinical experts. METHODS: : Self-reported adult asthma patients recruited from a 3000-member New England area research panel participated in either one of three focus groups (n = 21) or individual cognitive item debriefing interviews (n = 20) to discuss how asthma impacts their health-related quality of life (HR-QOL), and provide feedback on a preliminary set of asthma impact survey items and prototype patient reports...

OBJECTIVE: Although seclusion is legally sanctioned in France, its use remains controversial, and debate continues over ethical and therapeutic aspects of the practice. Seclusion continues to be widely used in the management of disturbed behaviour in hospitalized patients. Although recent studies serve to strengthen the link between the use of seclusion and negative patient responses, they are limited in extending our understanding of the seclusion experience. The objective of this work was two-fold: to examine the perceptions and experiences of patients about their seclusion experience and then suggest ways of improving the use of seclusion in relation to an ethical perspective...

Cancer patients (n = 913) who received treatment within the previous 2 years were interviewed to quantify reports of symptoms associated with cancer, measure the impact of symptoms on lifestyles, document experiences with accessing information and treatment for cancer and its symptoms, and record attitudes about the level of care received. Cancer patients were primarily recruited through newspaper ads placed throughout Canada and asked to complete a self-report questionnaire. Patients called a toll-free number and were interviewed to ensure eligibility...
