Parkinson's disease psychosis: symptoms, management, and economic burden.

Parkinson's disease psychosis (PDP) is a costly, debilitating condition that generally develops several years after diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD). PD is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease, and it imposes a significant burden on the healthcare system. Non-motor symptoms commonly manifest in PD, contributing to the severity of a patient's disability. The neuropsychiatric symptoms that are common in PD can be a significant source of distress to patients and caregivers. Recent studies have...

Cost Effectiveness and Economic Impact of the KineSpring® Knee Implant System in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis in Spain.

We investigated the efficacy and cost effectiveness of the KineSpring System in the Spanish healthcare system, as compared to other standard treatments methods. Cost-utility ratios were calculated using derived cost data and we calculated quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) gained for each method of treatment. Cost-utility ratios were calculated assuming lifetime and 10-year durability. Assuming lifetime durability, cost-utility ratios of total knee arthroplasty (TKA), unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UK...


The Prevalence of Compassion Fatigue and Burnout among Healthcare Professionals in Intensive Care Units: A Systematic Review.

Working in the stressful environment of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is an emotionally charged challenge that might affect the emotional stability of medical staff.

Improving the Education and Training of Primary Care Nurse Practitioners to Meet the Healthcare Needs of Long-Term Cancer Survivors.

The United States has a well-documented shortage of primary care providers (PCPs) and oncologists. Cancer survivors are living longer because of advances in treatment, and, consequently, more are seeking survivorship care from PCPs; this trend is predicted to continue. One proposed solution is to increase the use of nurse practitioners (NPs). However, most NP programs do not provide adequate training or education that is specific to the needs of long-term cancer survivors. .

Rethinking Care Coordination: Paradigm Shifting From Volume to Value.

Although care coordination is not a new concept, it has been fraught with a myriad of definitions. Among these, core themes can be gleaned to help the home healthcare clinician understand their role and responsibilities as part of a high-functioning team. For a shift from volume to value to occur, in a way that is meaningful to the patient, a holistic paradigm needs to be fully embraced by all members of the interdisciplinary team. As healthcare continues to shift to a fair-market demand for services system...

From wandering to wayfaring: Reconsidering movement in people with dementia in long-term care.

The movement of people with dementia in long-term care continues to be an issue of concern among clinicians, caregivers and families. This article will examine the social construction "wandering" and its association with pathology, risk discourse and surveillance technologies. Further, the article will explore the recent shift from the term "wanderer" to the phrase "people who like to walk" in person-centred dementia care. Engaging with Ingold's concept of movement as wayfaring, an alternative becoming-cent...

Healthcare Cost and Impact of Persistent Orofacial Pain: The DEEP Study Cohort.

Few data are available on the healthcare costs of those suffering from persistent orofacial pain (POFP). This cohort and cost analysis study examined the direct costs of POFP from the perspective of the healthcare provider (specifically, the UK National Health Service) in 2012 pounds sterling and sought to identify whether dichotomized (high, IIb to IV; low, 0 to IIa) graded chronic pain scale (GCPS) status is predictive of the total cost of healthcare over the last 6 mo. The healthcare utilization data of ...

Adherence clubs for long-term provision of anti-retroviral therapy: Cost-effectiveness and access analysis from Khayelitsha, South Africa.

As the scale of the South African HIV epidemic calls for innovative models of care that improve accessibility for patients while overcoming chronic human resource shortages, we (1) assess the cost-effectiveness of lay health worker-led group adherence clubs, in comparison to a nurse-driven 'standard of care, and (2) describe and evaluate the associated patient cost and accessibility differences.

Value-Based Cancer Care.

In June 2015, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) published a proposed framework for assessing the value of various cancer treatments.(1) The goal was to evaluate selected treatment regimens on the basis of their clinical benefit, toxicity, and cost. ASCO's ideas about cost had been incubating for a long time: the organization had created a Task Force on the Cost of Cancer Care in 2007, although, like most medical specialty organizations, it had generally remained silent on the issue of cost. B...

Osteoporosis Diagnosis and Management in Long-Term Care Facility.

Contemporary estimates of the prevalence of diagnosed osteoporosis among long-term care facility residents are limited.

A comparison of the diagnostic accuracy of the AD8 and BCAT-SF in identifying dementia and mild cognitive impairment in long-term care residents.

We compared the accuracy of the Brief Cognitive Assessment Tool-Short Form (BCAT-SF) and AD8 in identifying mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia among long-term care residents. Psychometric analyses of 357 long-term care residents (n = 228, nursing home; n = 129, assisted living) in Maryland referred for neuropsychological evaluation evidenced robust internal consistency reliability and construct validity for the BCAT-SF. Furthermore, hierarchical logistic regression and receiver operating chara...

Long-term use of benzodiazepines: Definitions, prevalence and usage patterns - a systematic review of register-based studies.

Numerous treatment guidelines recommend that long-term use of benzodiazepines (BZD) should be avoided primarily due to development of tolerance and a risk for BZD dependence. Despite this, long-term BZD use remains a controversial subject in clinical patient care with "for and against" debates. However, there is no explicit understanding of what is meant by long-term BZD use in real world. The aim of this study was to assess different definitions, usage patterns, prevalence and other characteristics of long...

Long-term clinical and cost-effectiveness of psychological intervention for family carers of people with dementia: a single-blind, randomised, controlled trial.

Two-thirds of people with dementia live at home supported mainly by family carers. These carers frequently develop clinical depression or anxiety, which predicts care breakdown. We aimed to assess the clinical effectiveness (long-term reduction of depression and anxiety symptoms in family carers) and cost-effectiveness of a psychological intervention called START (STrAtegies for RelaTives).

Trends and reforms in long-term care policies for the elderly.

A systematic review included articles, studies, and comparative international reports published from 2010 to 2015. The results show three trends in the design and development of these policies: (a) focus on the oldest or most dependent elde...

A Budget Proposal for China's Public Long Term Care Policy.

Long-Term Care (LTC) policy is at an experimental stage in China, characterised by various regional pilot programmes. The public cost of LTC is difficult to estimate due to a lack of clarity about policy detail from the central government. This paper analyses the current disabled status for vulnerable older people without sufficiently financial resources and family supports. It focuses on estimating a safety net public subsidy policy to LTC services in China, both for today and into the future, using CHARLS...

Improving Patient Outcomes With Oral Heart Failure Medications.

Hospitals are under immense pressure to reduce heart failure readmissions that occur within 30 days of discharge, and to improve the quality of care for these patients. Penalties mandated by the Affordable Care Act decrease hospital reimbursement and ultimately the overall cost of caring for these patients increases if they are not well managed. Approximately 25% of patients hospitalized for heart failure are at high risk for readmission and these rates have not changed over the past decade. As a result of ...
