INTRODUCTION: To describe multimedia presentation development and assess impact of use on student and educator performance in a drug information course. METHODS: Slides were modified from bullet-point format to simplified pictorial format and three-slide handouts became outlined Word documents. Student performance, via exam scores and class average, and educator evaluation scores were compared between 2013 and 2014. RESULTS: Presentation revision resulted in a similar number of slides per presentation and smaller handout packets...

Purpose: We explored patients' perspectives on home exercise programmes (HEPs) and their experiences using a mobile application designed to facilitate home exercise. Method: Data were generated using qualitative, semi-structured, face-to-face interviews with 10 participants who were receiving outpatient physiotherapy. Results: Establishing a therapeutic partnership between physiotherapists and patients enabled therapists to customize the HEPs to the patients' lifestyles and preferences. Analysis suggests that using the mobile application improved participants' ability to integrate the HEP into their daily life and was overwhelmingly preferred to traditional paper handouts...

Hepatitis C virus infection is the most common chronic blood-borne infection in the United States (U.S.). Increasing rates of hepatitis C virus infection among drug users present a significant public health problem in the U.S. and globally. This article describes the effect an educational intervention on hepatitis C virus knowledge. A project was conducted using the Brief Hepatitis C Knowledge Scale to assess pre- and post-test intervention knowledge. An educational intervention consisting of a video (Hepatitis C: Get the Facts) and a written handout, as well as a question-and-answer session, was administered to participants at a local health department...

Formal lectures have been a traditional part of medical and dental education, but there is debate as to their compulsory status. This study was designed to explore dental and medical students' views on compulsory lectures and the use of Video-Recorded Lectures (VRL). A cross-sectional study of University of Bristol students in Years 2 to 4 was conducted using an online questionnaire. The majority of both dental (76%) and medical (66%) students felt lectures should be non-compulsory. The most common learning resources used by both dental and medical students were live lectures, lecture handouts and VRL...

BACKGROUND: Pain is a challenge for patients following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT). OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to develop and test the feasibility, acceptability, and initial efficacy of a Web-based mobile pain coping skills training (mPCST) protocol designed to address the needs of HCT patients. METHODS: Participants had undergone HCT and reported pain following transplant (N=68).

PURPOSE: We investigated whether written guidelines for surgeons and educational handouts for patients regarding safe and effective opioid use after hand surgery could reduce prescription sizes while achieving high patient satisfaction and a low refill rate. METHODS: All patients undergoing isolated carpal tunnel release or distal radius volar locked plating in a hand surgery group practice during a 6-month period were prospectively enrolled. Surgeons prescribed analgesics at their own discretion based on written guidelines...

BACKGROUND: A well-visualized colon during colonoscopy has a direct impact on interpretation of findings and need for repeat procedure. Studies have been conducted in the adult population to assess factors contributing to improved bowel preparation. The primary aim of this study was to determine barriers and facilitators to good preparation in children. METHODS: A qualitative descriptive approach was utilized. Children age 2 to 18 years old, and their parents were recruited from the McMaster University Gastroenterology clinic from May 2015 to January 2016...

BACKGROUND: We hypothesized that the addition of a novel verbal electronic audio reminder to an educational patient hand hygiene bundle would increase performance of self-managed patient hand hygiene. METHODS: We conducted a 2-group comparative effectiveness study randomly assigning participants to patient hand hygiene bundle 1 (n = 41), which included a video, a handout, and a personalized verbal electronic audio reminder (EAR) that prompted hand cleansing at 3 meal times, or patient hand hygiene bundle 2 (n = 34), which included the identical video and handout, but not the EAR...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Despite recommendations supporting human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, pediatric vaccination rates remain suboptimal in the United States; lack of tools to support provider counseling is one barrier. We sought to evaluate HPV-related counseling materials for readability, suitability, and content, and assess parent perceptions of materials, using a health literacy perspective. METHODS: A systematic search was conducted for written materials developed for HPV vaccination counseling by examining state Department of Health Web sites and associated links to local and national organizations...

BACKGROUND: Patient portals specifically designed for the inpatient setting have significant potential to improve patient care. However, little is known about how the users of this technology, the patients, may interact with the inpatient portals. As a result, hospitals have limited ability to design approaches that support patient use of the portal. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate the user experience associated with an inpatient portal. METHODS: We used a Think-Aloud protocol to study user interactions with a commercially available inpatient portal-MyChart Bedside (MCB)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Effective public provision of contraceptive services depends upon regular interventions at the primary care level. Recognizing the need to improve the frequency and quality of contraceptive counseling at a rural family medicine residency, this study sought to determine if the introduction of a simple teaching tool would lead to an increase in the rates of such counseling. METHODS: Resident physicians at a rural clinic provided contraceptive counseling to all eligible women, utilizing a simple educational table as a teaching aid...

CONTEXT:   Health care research evidence suggests that early patient encounters (PEs), as well as the purposeful implementation of professional core competencies (CCs), for athletic training students (ATSs) may be beneficial to their ability to provide care. However, no investigators have related facets of the clinical education experience with CC implementation as a form of summative assessment of the clinical experience. OBJECTIVE:   To determine the relationship between the frequency and length of PEs, as well as the student's role and clinical site during PEs, and the students' perceived CC implementation during these encounters...

Ensuring that written materials used in behavioral interventions are clear is important to support behavior change. This study used the Clear Communication Index (CCI) to assess the original and revised versions of three types of written participant materials from the SIPsmartER intervention. Materials were revised based on original scoring. Scores for the entire index were significantly higher among revised versions than originals (57% versus 41%, p < 0.001); however, few revised materials (n = 2 of 53) achieved the benchmark of ≥90%...

Most of the 100 million Americans with persistent pain are treated in primary care clinics, but evidence-based psychosocial approaches targeting pain-related disability are not usually provided in these settings. This manuscript describes the rationale and methods for a protocol to pilot test the feasibility and effectiveness of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based psychological treatment for persistent pain, delivered by a Behavioral Health Consultant in primary care. Eligible patients are identified through electronic health record registries and invited to participate via secure messaging, letters and a follow-up phone call...
