M S Nieuwboer, A Richters, M A van der Marck
BACKGROUND: A redesigning of primary care is required to meet dementia patients' needs. In the Netherlands, current dementia care still falls short in areas including ad hoc collaboration, lack of feedback on quality to professionals involved, and insufficient implementation of established multidisciplinary guidelines. OBJECTIVE: DementiaNet is a collaborative care approach, which aims to reduce the burden of the disease on individuals, healthcare services and society via network-based care that encourages collaboration, enhances knowledge and skills and stimulates quality improvement cycles...

BACKGROUND: Accrediting bodies require medical schools to teach patient safety and residents to develop teaching skills in patient safety. We created a patient safety course in the preclinical curriculum and used continuous quality improvement to make changes over time. OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of resident teaching on student perceptions of a Patient Safety course. DESIGN: Using the Institute for Healthcare Improvement patient safety curriculum as a frame, the course included the seven IHI modules, large group lectures and small group facilitated discussions...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to clarify how large a proportion of fatal medical accidents can be considered to be caused by poor non-technical skills, and to support development of a policy to reduce number of such accidents by making recommendations about possible training requirements. DESIGN: Summaries of reports of fatal medical accidents, published by the Japan Medical Safety Research Organization, were reviewed individually. Three experienced clinicians and one patient safety expert conducted the reviews to determine the cause of death...

BACKGROUND: The majority of human errors in healthcare originate from cognitive errors or biases. There is dearth of evidence around relative prevalence and significance of various cognitive errors amongst doctors in their first post-graduate year. This study was conducted with the objective of using high fidelity clinical simulation as a tool to study the relative occurrence of selected cognitive errors amongst doctors in their first post-graduate year. METHODS: Intern simulation sessions on acute clinical problems, conducted in year 2014, were reviewed by two independent assessors with expertise in critical care...

: 159 Background: Our CCC serving a mixed rural/urban population is part of a large integrated healthcare system in Eastern WI. The closest PC specialist/team is 45 miles away at one of the tertiary care facilities. To fill this service gap we implemented a primary PC model. An initial outpatient palliative care family conference (OFC) and use of cancer nurse navigators (CNN)are hallmarks of this program. METHODS: The VLCC, housed in a standalone facility is staffed by two medical oncologists and one radiation oncologist and has an infusion center and a full-fledged radiation oncology unit with support staff, including cancer nurse navigators, research nurses, social workers, a clinical psychologist, a pharmacist, a nutritionist, a therapy dog and a chaplain...

: 162 Background: Routine screening to identify palliative care (PC) needs, followed by assessment and management of needs is critical for high-quality cancer care. Our current healthcare system there is poor screening for PC needs, low referral rates to PC services, and unmet needs. In response to these gaps, we developed a dedicated triage center to streamline the assessment of PC needs and better connect patients with appropriate supportive care services. METHODS: We identified 24 services at our academic cancer center that provide PC and supportive services...

High maternal mortality ratios (MMRs) serve as objective indicators of the poor condition of women's health in any country and point to violations of human rights that are entrenched in national, regional, and global laws. For more than a decade, Nigeria has consistently been one of the top five listed countries with the highest MMRs in the world; in 2015, its MMR was estimated at 814 deaths per 100 000 live births, accounting for 19% of maternal deaths worldwide and approximately 58 000 deaths each year...

: 135 Background: Patient safety is a priority for all hospitals and staff members. With approx. 1:10 hospitalized patients experiencing an adverse event(1), healthcare lags behind other industries with regards to safety. Oncology patients have an increased risk of adverse events due to an immunocompromised status, coupled with complex treatments. Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Eastern Regional Medical Center (ERMC) recognized the need to heighten patient safety while maintaining a positive patient experience...

: 258 Background: The national standard survey, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), measures the patient's perspective on hospital care. One area that continually evokes sub-optimal results is the 'quiet at night' measurement. Our investigation explored the patient's perception of nighttime "noise" in the hospital setting. METHODS: Patients in our medical surgical/telemetry floors subjectively evaluated the noise level at night...

: 104 Background: Kaiser Permanente (KP) is an integrated healthcare system providing comprehensive services to over 10 million members. The KP Interregional Breast Care Leaders, a multidisciplinary clinician group, developed a comprehensive evidence/consensus-based algorithm for breast cancer survivors, the KP Breast Cancer Survivorship National Clinical Algorithm (BCSNCA). The BCSNCA is intended to reduce variation in medical and psychosocial surveillance and improve outcomes by providing guidance to locally implemented survivorship programs, ie, recommendations for surveillance, late effects management, and risk reduction...

BACKGROUND: The roots of advanced practice nursing (APN) can be traced back to the 1890s, but the nurse practitioner (NP) emerged in Western countries during the 1960s in response to the unmet healthcare needs of populations in rural areas. These early NPs utilized the medical model of care to assess, diagnose and treat. Nursing has since grown as a profession, with its own unique and distinguishable, holistic, science-based knowledge, which is complementary within the multidisciplinary team...

European cancer nurses have to face many challenges as a result of the rapidly changing economic and political context in which balancing health care needs has become strategic for healthcare delivery. Currently, cancer nurses must overcome many obstacles arising from clinical, organisational, and educational issues. Within this scenario, the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) shaped its tenth congress programme to boost discussion and reflections, to share experiences and research, and to see how cancer nurses try to anticipate and embrace changes...
