The purpose of this article is to identify characteristics of home healthcare nurses that enable them to be successful home healthcare team members and leaders. A search of the literature was conducted to compile a list of...


Transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in long-term care facilities and their related healthcare networks.

Long-term care facilities (LTCF) are potential reservoirs for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), control of which may reduce MRSA transmission and infection elsewhere in the healthcare system. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) has been used successfully to understand MRSA epidemiology and transmission in hospitals and has the potential to identify transmission between these and LTCF.

Primary care interventions and current service innovations in modifying long-term outcomes after stroke: a protocol for a scoping review.

Interventions delivered by primary and/or community care have the potential to reach the majority of stroke survivors and carers and offer ongoing support. However, an integrative account emerging from the reviews of interventions addressing specific long-term outcomes after stroke is lacking. The aims of the proposed scoping review are to provide an overview of: (1) primary care and community healthcare interventions by generalist healthcare professionals to stroke survivors and/or their informal carers to...


Designated specialized units: How Ontario's long-term care homes fill a gap in care.

Ontario has eight designated Specialized Units (SUs) located in Long-Term Care (LTC) homes. Each unit serves a well-defined group of residents whose needs go beyond what regular LTC homes can offer but do not require the complexity and range of care provided in hospitals. An applied qualitative research project looked at the realities of designated SUs, explored their role in health system capacity planning, and created a tool kit to help stakeholders navigate the designation process. Results outline the be...

Stroke survivors' experiences of communication with healthcare providers in long-term care settings: a systematic review protocol.

Supporting long-term follow-up of young adult survivors of childhood cancer: Correlates of healthcare self-efficacy.

Healthcare self-efficacy (HCSE), the perceived confidence to manage one's health care, has been identified as a critical component in the transition process from pediatric to adult-oriented care for childhood cancer survivors (CCSs). HCSE is amenable to intervention and associated with long-term follow-up care among CCSs. However, factors associated with HCSE have not been fully explored among CCSs.

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...

Shock, but no shift: Hospitals' responses to changes in patient insurance mix.

Medicaid reimburses healthcare providers for services at a lower rate than any other type of insurance coverage. To account for the burden of treating Medicaid patients, providers claim that they must cost-shift by raising the rates of individuals covered by private insurance. Previous investigations of cost-shifting has produced mixed results. In this paper, I exploit a disabled Medicaid expansion where crowd-out was complete to investigate cost-shifting. I find that hospitals reduce the charge rates of th...

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. .

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.

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...

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...

Investing in Post-Acute Care Transitions: Electronic Information Exchange Between Hospitals and Long-Term Care Facilities.

Electronic health information exchange (HIE) is expected to help improve care transitions from hospitals to long-term care (LTC) facilities. We know little about the prevalence of hospital LTC HIE in the United States and what contextual factors may motivate or constrain this activity.
