Critical Time Intervention (CTI) is a time-limited mental health intervention offered to people with mental disorders during critical/transition periods. This study assesses the impact of CTI-BR on social performance and quality of life within a population in the process of deinstitutionalization, after long-term hospitalization in a psychiatric institution. The study population was split into two groups, one of which received CTI plus the regular care. Results showed no advantage of the intervention compared to the regular programs provided by the institution...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (QoL) in adult patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) has been variously reported. However, there is no study evaluating the impact of transition on quality of life. METHODS: Adult patients with classic or non-classic CAH diagnosed during childhood CAH, born between 1970 and 1990, were recruited from the registers of Pediatric departments belonging to the French reference center for endocrine rare disease. Primary end point was the quality of life (WHOQoL -BREF)...

BACKGROUND: In sub-Saharan Africa, rates of sustained HIV virologic suppression remain below international goals. HIV resistance testing, while common in resource-rich settings, has not gained traction due to concerns about cost and sustainability. OBJECTIVE: We designed a randomized clinical trial to determine the feasibility, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of routine HIV resistance testing in sub-Saharan Africa. APPROACH: We describe challenges common to intervention studies in resource-limited settings, and strategies used to address them, including: (1) optimizing generalizability and cost-effectiveness estimates to promote transition from study results to policy; (2) minimizing bias due to patient attrition; and (3) addressing ethical issues related to enrollment of pregnant women...

It is now well recognized that patient engagement in health care is a key factor in improving satisfaction; however, it is also critical if we are to improve the health outcomes of our patients, as well as the economic and quality outcomes of our health system. Medicine, though, has traditionally resisted a culture of patient-centered or patient-controlled care. What follow are the reflections of one otolaryngologist on the importance and challenges of making the transition to patient-centered care.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment with all oral direct acting antiviral agents (DAA's) achieve sustained virologic response (SVR) rates of 98%. Re-assessment of general US population screening for HCV is imperative. This study compared the cost-effectiveness (CE) of three HCV screening strategies: screen all (SA), screen Birth Cohort (BCS), and screen high risks (HRS). METHODS: Using a previous designed decision-analytic Markov model, estimations of the natural history of HCV and CE evaluation of the three HCV screening strategies over a lifetime horizon in the US population was undertaken...

Ovarian endometrioma (OMA) and deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) have long been recognized to have different histology and, as such, postulated to be 2 separate disease entities. Few studies, however, have attempted to elucidate the causes for their differences. Making use of ectopic endometrial tissue samples from 25 and 20 women with OMA and DIE, respectively, and control endometrial tissue samples from 25 women without endometriosis, we conducted an immunohistochemical analysis to evaluate the expression of a group of carefully chosen markers for epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), fibroblast-to-myofibroblast transdifferentiation (FMT), smooth muscle metaplasia (SMM), fibrosis, vascularity, hormonal receptors, and proteins involved in epigenetic modifications...

Increasing demand on hospital resources by an ageing population is impacting significantly on the number of beds available and, in turn, the length of time that elderly patients must wait for a bed before being admitted to hospital. This research presents a new methodology that models patient pathways and allows the accurate prediction of patient length of stay in hospital, using a phase-type survival tree to cluster patients based on their covariates and length of stay in hospital. A type of Markov model, called the conditional Coxian phase-type distribution is then implemented, with the probability density function for the time spent at a particular stage of care, for example, the first community discharge, conditioned on the length of stay experienced at the previous stage, namely the initial hospital admission...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric chronic kidney disease is psychologically, financially, and physically demanding on parents providing care. Parents often feel isolated because of the rarity of the condition, and geographic isolation often compounds this perception in Canada. Many parents seek assistance online for both information and social support. OBJECTIVE: This study examines an online portal, titled "Ability Online," which was designed to provide support and information to a diverse group of parents using chat facilities, bulletin boards, and e-mail...

REVIEW
Stuart R Chipkin, Fred Kim
Transgender people have a gender that is not in agreement with their birth sex. Previous barriers, including lack of provider knowledge, has created significant healthcare disparities for this population. Recent societal changes are increasing the numbers of transgender people seen by primary care. Ten key principles are provided to help primary practitioners create more welcoming environments and provide quality care to transgender patients. Overall, all members of the health care team (primary and specialty) need to become aware of the transition process and maintain communication regarding risks, benefits and goals...
