There is growing interest in conducting public health research using data from social media. In particular, Twitter "infoveillance" has demonstrated utility across health contexts. However, rigorous and reproducible methodologies for using Twitter data in public health are not yet well articulated, particularly those related to content analysis, which is a highly popular approach. In 2014, we gathered an interdisciplinary team of health science researchers, computer scientists, and methodologists to begin implementing an open-source framework for real-time infoveillance of Twitter health messages (RITHM)...

The need for science education and outreach is great. However, despite the ever-growing body of available scientific information, facts are often misrepresented to or misunderstood by the general public. This can result in uninformed decisions that negatively impact society at both individual and community levels. One solution to this problem is to make scientific information more available to the public through outreach programs. Most outreach programs, however, focus on health initiatives, STEM programs, or young audiences exclusively...

BACKGROUND: Interventions to improve patient-centered care for persons with multimorbidity are in constant growth. To date, the emphasis has been on two separate kinds of interventions, those based on a patient-centered care approach with persons with chronic disease and the other ones created specifically for persons with multimorbidity. Their effectiveness in primary healthcare is well documented. Currently, none of these interventions have synthesized a patient-centered care approach for care for multimorbidity...

Background and Objectives: Smart home auto-prompting has the potential to increase the functional independence of persons with dementia (PWDs) and decrease caregiver burden as instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) are completed at home. To improve prompting technologies, we sought to inductively understand how PWDs responded to auto-prompting while performing IADL tasks. Research Design and Methods: Fifteen PWDs completed eight IADLs in a smart home testbed and received a hierarchy of verbal auto-prompts (indirect, direct, multimodal) as needed for task completion...

OBJECTIVE: To examine how expertise redundancy and transactive memory (TM) in interdisciplinary care teams (ICTs) are related to team performance. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Survey and administrative data were collected from 26 interdisciplinary mental health teams. STUDY DESIGN: The study used a longitudinal, observational design. Independent variables were measured at baseline, 6, and 12 months: expertise redundancy (the extent to which team members possess highly overlapping knowledge), TM accuracy (the extent to which team members accurately recognize experts in relevant knowledge domains), and TM consensus (the extent to which team members agree on who is expert in which knowledge domain)...

AIM: To explore allied health staff perceptions on the role of nurses in sub-acute care wards. BACKGROUND: A consequence of earlier discharge from acute hospitals is higher acuity of patients in sub-acute care. The impact on nurses' roles and required skill mix remains unknown. Similarly, nurses' integration into the rehabilitation team is ambiguous. DESIGN: Descriptive qualitative inquiry. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews conducted with 14 allied health staff from one sub-acute care facility in Melbourne, Australia...

Skilled nursing facilities and nursing homes are a care setting that offers increasing opportunities for pharmacists to be leaders when addressing the new updated Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requirements coupled with the enhanced quality measures reporting. Additionally, the complexity of the medication-related needs and comorbidities of the patients served in long-term care facilities promotes pharmacists practicing to the top of their license. Medication stewardship needs to be an interdisciplinary team activity led by the pharmacist...

BACKGROUND: To avoid emergency hospitalisation of elderly people with dementia, which often has negative consequences, there are two main approaches: consultation and day care hospitalisation. However, it usually takes some time to arrange a consultation, and geriatric day hospital facilities are over-subscribed and costly. In 2014, we created a "consultation de crise" (CMC) programme in our sector of Paris, with several special features: a short wait for an appointment, a consultation involving an interdisciplinary team, a weekly multi-disciplinary meeting to reassess complex patients, and the possibility of a rapid referral to a social worker...

To address an increase in unexpected poor outcomes in term neonates, our team developed a goal of high reliability and improved fetal safety in the culture of the Labor and Delivery nursing department. We implemented interdisciplinary reviews of fetal heart rate, along with a Category II fetal heart rate management algorithm and a fetal heart rate assessment rapid response alert to call for unscheduled reviews when needed. Enhanced communication between nurses and other clinicians supported an interdisciplinary approach to fetal safety, and we observed an improvement in health outcomes for term neonates...

CONTEXT: The American Society of Clinical Oncology recommends that all patients with metastatic disease receive dedicated palliative care (PC) services early in their illness, ideally via interdisciplinary care teams. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the time trends of specialty palliative care consultations from the date of metastatic cancer diagnosis among patients receiving palliative radiation therapy (PRT). A shorter time interval between metastatic diagnosis and first PC consultation suggests earlier involvement of palliative care in a patient's life with metastatic cancer...

Science increasingly consists of interdisciplinary team-based research to address complex social, biomedical, public health, and global challenges through a practice known as team science. In this article, I discuss the added value of team science, including participatory team science, for generating scientific knowledge. Participatory team science involves the inclusion of public stakeholders on science teams as co-producers of knowledge. I also discuss how constructivism offers a common philosophical foundation for both community psychology and team science, and how this foundation aligns well with contemporary developments in science that emphasize the co-production of knowledge...
