Emergency departments (EDs) are an important health care setting for the identification of elder abuse (EA). Our objective was to develop an ED-based tool to identify EA. The initial tool included a brief cognitive assessment, questions to detect multiple domains of EA, and a physical examination. Refinement of the tool was based on input from clinical experts and nurse and patient feedback. The revised tool, which included 15 questions about EA, was then tested in an academic ED. We calculated the inter-rater reliability, sensitivity, and specificity of individual EA questions...

INTRODUCTION: Negative symptoms are prevalent in schizophrenia and associated with a poorer outcome. Validated newer psychometric instruments could contribute to better assessment and improved treatment of negative symptoms. The Negative Symptom Assessment-16 (NSA-16) has been shown to have strong psychometric properties, but there is a need for validation in non-English languages. This study aimed to examine the psychometric properties of a Spanish version of the NSA-16 (Sp-NSA-16). MATERIAL AND METHOD: Observational, cross-sectional validation study in a sample of 123 outpatients with schizophrenia...

Diagnostic consensus criteria cannot be applied in a major proportion of patients with upper limb complaints, many of which are regarded as "non-specific". The three empirical studies in this thesis aimed to address this diagnostic challenge by incorporating representative neurological qualities in the physical examination.
Patterns of muscle weakness, sensory abnormalities and nerve trunk allodynia based on the nerves' topography and their motor and cutaneous innervation were defined to reflect peripheral nerve afflictions and their locations...

AIM: To investigate the diagnostic reliability and accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to differentiate periapical lesions of endodontic origin, and to compare the results with histopathologic information. METHODOLOGY: The radiolucent periapical jaw lesions of 34 patients, which were surgically enucleated, were investigated by two radiologists using MRI, based on the same six criteria, to categorise the lesions as granulomas, radicular cysts, or other. After apicoectomies, two oral pathologists (blinded to the radiologist's diagnoses) analysed all specimens by referring to seven specific parameters and diagnosed the specimens as granulomas, radicular cysts, or other conditions...

Background: Simulation-based training has become an accepted clinical training andragogy in high-resource settings with its use increasing in low-resource settings. Video recordings of simulated scenarios are commonly used by facilitators. Beyond using the videos during debrief sessions, researchers can also analyze the simulation videos to quantify technical and nontechnical skills during simulated scenarios over time. Little is known about the feasibility and use of large-scale systems to video record and analyze simulation and debriefing data for monitoring and evaluation in low-resource settings...

BACKGROUND: Surgeons' non-technical skills are an important part of surgical performance and surgical education. The most widely adopted assessment tool is the Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) behaviour rating system. Psychometric analysis of this tool to date has focused on inter-rater reliability and feasibility rather than validation. METHODS: NOTSS assessments were collected from two groups of consultant/attending surgeons in the UK and USA, who rated behaviours of the lead surgeon during a video-based simulated crisis scenario after either online or classroom instruction...
