In labour market policy and planning, it is important to understand the motivations of people to continue in their current job or to seek other employment. Over the last decade, besides the increasingly medical approach to pregnancy and childbirth and decreasing home births, there were additional dramatic changes and pressures on primary care midwives and midwifery care. Therefore, it is important to re-evaluate the career plans of primary care midwives and their intentions to leave their current job.
This article is a review of the literature on the experiences of parents and their interactions with healthcare providers while caring for their technology-dependent child(ren) in their homes. Results are presented in the following themes: information needs, respect and partnership with healthcare providers, care coordination, and experiences with home healthcare nurses. Parents needed information and guidance and felt supported when providers recognized parents' expertise with the child's care, and offered...
Palliative care (PC) is no longer offered with preference to cancer patients (CA), but also to patients with non-malignant, progressive diseases. Taking current death statistics into account, PC in Europe will face a growing number of patients dying from non-cancer diseases (NCA). More insights into specialized palliative home care (SPHC) in NCAs are needed.
One of the toughest decisions faced by elderly people is whether to stay at home or move to a care facility. This study seeks to evaluate the impact of training interprofessional home-care teams in shared decision making combined with a decision aid on the proportion of elderly people who report being active in the decision-making process regarding whether to stay at home or move to a care facility.
In Japan, palliative home care is subject to increasing demand from patients. However, the number of deaths at home is still not as high as that of palliative home care users.
The purpose of this article was to study, from a feminist perspective, the diversity and homogeneity in the career paths of female primary care physicians from Andalusia, Spain in the early 21st century, by analyzing the meanings they give to their careers and the influence of personal, family and professional factors. We conducted a qualitative study with six discussion groups. Thirty-two female primary care physicians working in urban health centers of the public health system of Andalusia participated in...
Given the increasing reliance on both formal (paid) and informal (unpaid) assistance for the care of older adults and the close relationships which are often formed with home care workers, the present study evaluated satisfaction with the relationship from the perspectives of the three members that make up the home caregiving triad: older adults, their family members and their home care workers.
The present study is a follow-up study of factors contributing to an undesirable quality of work environment and sick leave rate in the home care services in a Norwegian municipality. The underlying assumption is that organizational discrepancies in the perceptions and appraisals of significant factors and processes in an organization have detrimental effects on the management of the organization and on work environment conditions. Thus, the study aim is to explore potential organizational discrepancies in ...
In the UK, intermediate care (IC) is conceived as a range of service models aimed at 'care closer to home' and involves the expansion and development of community health and social services. Intermediate care in Denmark is more clearly defined, where approximately 45% of all the counties in Denmark have established a community-based IC unit in which public health-care services are offered to older people who have completed their hospital treatment. The impact of this organisational initiative is yet to be e...
Although the Patient Centered Medical Home is a considered an optimal model for care, some children still do not receive care in this model. Beyond the clinical and practitioner factors known to affect having a medical home, family and environmental risks [referred to as adverse childhood experiences (ACE)] may also be associated with having a medical home. This study's purpose was to examine whether family and environment risks are associated with children having a medical home.
The home beauty device market is rapidly growing, having more than tripled in the last four years. This study evaluates several specific attachment heads using a novel home skincare platform (HSP). By incorporating multiple treatment heads for cleansing, skin smoothing, and skin infusion, this device has the potential to address many potential treatment goals. The first subset of this study is a blinded, randomized split-face study evaluating the efficacy of the HSP device with a standard brush head for mak...
How sad to read that care home nursing is seen as 'something people do when they cannot get a job elsewhere' (News, April 29). I chose care home nursing straight out of university.
To examine and compare child and parent or guardian physical and mental health outcomes in families with children with special health care needs who have medically complex technology-dependent needs in home care, long-term care (LTC), and medical day care (MDC) settings. The number of children requiring medically complex technology-dependent care has grown exponentially. In this study, options for their care are home care, LTC, or MDC. Comparison of child and parent/guardian health outcomes is unknown.
In countries with ageing populations, home care (HC) aides are among the fastest growing jobs. There are few quantitative studies of HC occupational safety and health (OSH) conditions. The objectives of this study were to: (1) assess quantitatively the OSH hazards and benefits for a wide range of HC working conditions, and (2) compare OSH experiences of HC aides who are employed via different medical and social services systems in Massachusetts, USA.
In addition to providing high-quality care to vulnerable patient populations, home healthcare offers the least costly option for patients and the healthcare system, particularly in postacute care. As the baby boom generation ages, policymakers are expressing concerns about rising costs, variation in home healthcare service use, and program integrity. The Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation seeks to develop a research-based strategic framework for the future of home healthcare for older Americans...
The neurological disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) requires pain palliation during end-of-life stages. From the view point of a home-care doctor who assists patients with their final wishes to die at home, I summarize the issues involving the section of medical treatments, the extent and frequency of end-of-life pain, the methodology of pain palliation, and the facts of end-of-life care at home. I also present several clinical cases of end-of-life home care and discuss its demand and problems.
The long term effects of remote monitoring on hospital utilization and health care costs are understudied in home health care. The researchers performed a retrospective study, in a hospital based home health care agency, to consider the effects of remote monitoring in 326 patients with heart failure 90 days after discharge from services. While statistical significance was not noted, clinical significance suggests that there was a decreased hospital utilization rate and decreased average cost per hospitaliza...
This study was undertaken to provide a snapshot of the academic primary health-care workforce in Australia and to provide some insight into research capacity in academic primary health care following changes to funding for this sector. A convenience sample of individuals self-identifying as working within academic primary health care (n=405) completed an anonymous online survey. Respondents were identified from several academic primary health-care mailing lists. The survey explored workforce demographics, c...
Home care clinicians often have to transport supplies to patients' homes, and remove and transport items from the home after care is provided. This article will provide guidelines and best practices for the proper methods of managing and storing infection prevention and control supplies and regulated medical waste in a home care clinician's personal vehicle.
This article presents the case of a mother who is planning a home birth with a midwife with the shared knowledge that the fetus would have congenital anomalies of unknown severity. We discuss the right of women to choose home birth, the caregivers' duty to the infant, and the careproviders' dilemma about how to respond to this request. The ethical duties of concerned careproviders are explored and reframed as professional obligations to the mother, infant, and their profession at large. Recommendations are ...
Incorporating clinical nurse specialists (CNS) into home healthcare models is crucial for agencies that want to be on the leading edge of healthcare. As an advanced practice nurse, the CNS adds value by working with patients, home healthcare clinicians, and systems to improve patient outcomes. The CNS is a change agent who directly impacts the client during transitions in and out of home care, throughout the course of chronic disease management, and by assuring quality care is delivered by field clinicians.
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of care in the home (CHM) compared with usual care (UC) in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) on clinical outcomes and healthcare use including a cost-effectiveness analysis.
This article reports on the findings of a study that explored older lesbian and bisexual women's access to publicly funded home care in Ontario. Recent health reforms have increasingly shifted the bulk of care of individuals from health care institutions to private homes and communities. Although these reforms have had consequences for all individuals, they may be particularly problematic for this population of older adults who face added health risks and barriers. Sixteen women participated in a qualitativ...
This paper makes the case for a specific set of competencies required to adequately care for care home residents. It proposes that staff with these competencies need to work in an appropriate service context in order to achieve the best outcomes. These competencies and contextual factors are not currently recognised or championed by any single constituency within the existing healthcare infrastructure and there is a case that service delivery would be well served by recognition that 'care home medicine' is ...
