Compassionate care delivery enhances patient satisfaction and quality of life and reduces nurse burnout. This study measured the perceptions of nursing and midwifery leaders regarding the impact of the 'Leaders for Compassionate Care Programme' on their personal development, learning experience, service and care delivery, programme quality, and satisfaction with the programme. Seventy-nine leaders were surveyed using the Leaders for Compassionate Care Outcomes Evaluation Questionnaire and the Leaders for Co...
The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was launched in India in 2005 to address the health needs of under-served populations in rural areas, and to support universal access to care. Despite this initiative, unaccredited informal providers (IPs) often remain patients' first point of contact, which has led to inconsistencies in treatment, and has compromised the quality of care.
Hospitals are facing incentives to manage the total cost of care for episodes of illness, including the costs of inpatient care as well as the cost of care provided by physicians and postacute care (PAC) providers. PAC is an especially important component of the overall cost of care. One strategy hospitals employ in managing this cost is to own PAC providers. Prior work on the relationship between PAC ownership and cost has reached mixed conclusions.
Dental care is often an overlooked aspect of overall health care among older adults. Regular dental care is recommended for all older adults, even those with full dentures (1). Because Medicare does not cover routine dental care, older adults may have trouble accessing appropriate dental care (2). This report describes the prevalence, overall and by selected characteristics, of dental insurance, dental visits, and unmet need for dental care due to cost among adults aged 65 and over.
Changes in the current workforce of obstetrician-gynecologists and other health care providers of obstetric care, as well as changes in the delivery of health care services, prompt health care leaders to consider alternative strategies for approaching the essential shortage of obstetric care providers and facilities. Geographic variations in health care needs and resources require a tailored approach by individual communities and local health care providers. New and emerging technologies can support a range...
As Americans live longer lives, we will see an increased demand for quality healthcare for older adults. Despite the growth in the number of older adults, there will be a decrease in the supply of a primary care physician workforce to provide adequately for their care and health needs. This article reviews the literature that explores ways to address the primary care workforce shortage in a community-based geriatric healthcare setting, with special attention to elevating the role of nurses and caregivers an...
Pneumonia readmissions have significant quality of care and policy implications for patients and health care providers. Research indicates that initiatives to decrease readmissions should target high-risk subgroups. Older adults with dementia have an increased risk of pneumonia and subsequent hospitalizations, suggesting that they may be at high-risk of pneumonia readmissions. The purpose of this study was to determine if associations between patient factors and readmission rates differ for older adults wit...
Many of America's Veterans have unique medical and psychosocial needs related to their military service. Since most medical care received by Veterans occurs outside of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system, it is imperative that all medical providers have a working understanding of the unique needs of Veterans and some of the many programs and services available to Veterans through the VA. This article, created by an interdisciplinary team of palliative care and hospice providers who ca...
Care management programs have become more widely adopted as health systems try to improve the coordination and integration of services across the continuum of care, especially for frail older adults. Several models of care suggest the inclusion of registered nurses (RNs) and social workers to assist in these activities. In a 2018 national survey of 410 clinicians in 363 primary care and geriatrics practices caring for frail older adults, we found that nearly 40 percent of practices had no social workers or...
Health care providers' knowledge of and comfort working with adults with developmental disabilities (DD) affect the quality of care this growing population receives. Previous research on this topic has not included occupational therapy practitioners.
Little is known about care needs of young adults with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS). Patient-driven information is needed to improve understanding and support of young adults with FXS. A qualitative study was performed in 5 young adult patients (aged 18-30), and 33 parents of young adults. Concerns and care needs were categorized using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health. Results indicated concerns on 14 domains for males, and 13 domains for females, including physical, psycho...
Access to quality dental care for many adults and children remains a serious concern. Many communities throughout the U.S. are at great disadvantage for preventive care and treatment due to payment concerns, location and types of providers, and poor communication between dental providers and primary care professionals. Voids in shared technology and information also persist. Integrating primary care with oral health can boost both preventive care and interventions focused on increasing efficacy and efficien...
Older adults have higher rates of central obesity and greater risk for central obesity-related diseases compared to younger adults. Waist circumference measurement is a reliable indicator of preventable, central obesity-related disease risk. Despite its value, it is rarely measured in primary care settings due to providers' perceived patient discomfort with waist measurement. The current study examined community-based older adults' (N = 99) experience with, acceptance of, and willingness toward waist measur...

The authors compare advanced practice providers' education, training, scope of practice, and quality of care with that of physicians. A framework is essential to promote team-based primary care.
The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act (hereafter, Choice Program) seeks to improve access to care by enabling eligible Veterans to receive care from community providers. Veterans Affairs (VA) primary care providers (PCPs) play a key role in making referrals to community specialists, but their frontline experiences with referrals are not well understood.
This study examined (a) psychosocial health care needs of people with type 2 diabetes from the perspective of patients and diabetes health care providers in primary care, in terms of topics, attention in diabetes care and preferences and (b) factors associated with a positive attitude towards specialised psychosocial health care.

Face to face interviews were conducted from May to September 2017. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the qualitative data. Ten themes regarding ...
Using newly available U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administrative data linked with National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) data, this study estimates the prevalence of serious psychological distress (SPD) among non-elderly HUD-assisted adults and examines differences in health, health behaviors, and health care utilization for this population. The linked data estimate that 13% of HUD-assisted adults experience SPD. Controlling for individual characteristics and HUD program type, as...
Patients in many countries face poor access to specialist care. Electronic consultation (eConsult) improves access by allowing primary care providers (PCPs) and specialists to communicate electronically. As more countries adopt eConsult services, there has been growing interest in leveraging them as educational tools. Our study aimed to assess PCPs' perspectives on eConsult's ability to improve collegiality between providers and serve as an educational tool.
The evolving legal landscape for medical aid-in-dying (AID) in the USA raises clinical and public health challenges and concerns regarding how health care providers will accommodate AID while expanding access to high-quality end-of-life care.
The exchange of health information between primary care providers (PCPs) and surgeons is critical during transitions of care for older patients with multiple comorbidities; however, it is unknown to what extent this process occurs. This study was designed to characterize the extent to which factors associated with older patient's recovery, such as functional status, cognitive status, social status, and emotional factors, are shared among PCPs and surgical providers during care transitions.
