To investigate hearing aid owners' decisions to attend or not to attend an annual hearing aid review (HAR) appointment. To investigate the possible factors associated with appointment attendance, including age, gender, transportation, travel time, and hearing aid outcomes. A prospective cohort study. Potential participants were notified of their annual HAR appointment in the usual process employed by their clinic. Two months later, potential participants were identified as those who had attended and those ...
Online appointment scheduling systems have been designed in response to the problems of the traditional ones. In Iran, most outpatient clinics and our study population suffer from high patient' no-show rate and long waiting times because of not using online appointment scheduling system. In this study, the effect of an online appointment scheduling system was investigated by comparing the evaluation metrics of appointment scheduling before and after the intervention. This before-after pilot study was conduc...
We examined factors contributing to initial appointment attendance, alignment between parents' pre-visit and clinicians' diagnostic impressions, and family commitment to follow-ups at an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) specialty clinic. Sample sizes were n = 6558 (initial), n = 1430 (alignment), and n = 1353 (follow-up). Parents completed surveys and clinicians provided their ASD diagnostic impressions. When children were not receiving intervention, families were less likely to keep their initial...
Previous studies have shown that a large proportion of women invited for bowel cancer screening prefer endoscopists of the same gender. We tested whether women who are initially disinclined to undergo flexible sigmoidoscopy screening would be more willing to have the test with a female practitioner if they were also offered a decoy appointment with a male practitioner. We conducted two online experiments with women aged 35-54, living in England, who did not intend to undergo flexible sigmoidoscopy screening...
To assess the efficacy of a text messaging (SMS) strategy to improve appointment attendance, treatment adherence, and biological markers (viral load and CD4) in continuous patients with high activity antiretroviral therapy (HAART) who were late to their last scheduled appointment.
Patients and general practitioners often report on difficulties in finding a psychotherapist. In this prospective study, we investigate how much effort patients have to invest and how long it takes until they get an appointment with a psychotherapist.
Genetic counseling (GC) provides critical risk prediction information to women at-risk of carrying a genetic alternation; yet racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities persist with regard to GC uptake. This study examined patterns of GC uptake after a referral in a racially diverse population. In an urban academic medical center, medical records were reviewed between January 2016 and December 2017 for women who were referred to a genetic counselor for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Study outcomes ...
Patient satisfaction with healthcare is associated with clinical outcomes, provider satisfaction, and success of healthcare organizations. As the clinic day progresses, provider fatigue, deterioration with communication within the care team, and appointment spillover may decrease patient experience.
Background The expansion of available vaccines in recent years has increased the overall costs of the vaccine programme and put pressure on providers responsible for vaccination. In England in 2016-17, GP practices responsible for vaccinating their local population were paid £227 million. However, the costs to general practice of delivering the programme and the factors influencing these costs are unknown. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the costs of delivering the routine vaccination prog...
Technological advancements in radiation therapy have led to more complex treatment techniques such as volumetric modulated arc therapy, and in turn, more daily image verification. As treatment complexity increases, it is important to consider what effect this may have on treatment time. Additional factors that may influence treatment times are patient-centered care and mobility status. The aim of this study is to determine optimal radiation treatment appointment times based on site, technique, imaging requi...

This article discusses trends in health inequalities and access to health services across the regions of Brazil using data from household surveys conducted between 1998 and 2013. Social inequality was measured based on the ratio between the extremes of years of schooling considering two age groups (18 to 59 years and 60 years and over). The findings show a decline in health status and increase in prevalence of diabetes and hypertension in both age groups, which may be related to the expansion of primary hea...
General practice training in Australia is uniquely structured to allow half of all registrars to train in rural areas, in order to increase rural workforce development and access to rural primary care. There is, however, limited national-scale information about rural general practice supervisors who underpin the capacity for rural general practice training. The objective of this research was to explore the factors related to rural general practitioners (GPs) supervising general practice registrars.
Clinical judgement is intrinsic to diagnostic strategies in general practice; however, empirical evidence for its validity is sparse.
General practitioners (GPs) are required by the Australian professional colleges of general practice - The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and The Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine - to practise a high standard of professional behaviour. General practice registrars (GPRs) learn this in their training practices not only from their general practice supervisors, but also the practice managers (PMs). Little is known of PMs' views of the meaning of the term 'professional behaviou...
Missed primary care appointments occur frequently among urban, low-income patients-some of the costliest and sickest patients. We conducted semi-structured interviews with 43 patients who reside in West Philadelphia (100% insured by Medicaid, 95% were non-Hispanic African Americans, and 47.1 years old on average) to identify why recent primary care appointments were or might have been missed. Existing transportation options, including public transportation, were considered unreliable and alternative options...
Nonattendance in alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment has been a persistent issue for service provision. The study reports on the outcomes of implementing a group intervention, titled Getting Ready for Change (GRFC), as the default entry pathway into an AOD counseling service that aimed to improve initial attendance and retention through reduced wait days and improved clinical capacity. Clients of the service ( = 274) were offered either an individual appointment (baseline) between September 2015 and...
is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes Pierce's Disease (PD) in grapevine. is xylem-limited and interfaces primarily with pit membranes (PMs) that separate xylem vessels from one another and from adjacent xylem parenchyma cells. PMs are comprised of both pectic and cellulosic substrates, and dissolution of PMs is facilitated by cell wall degrading enzymes (CWDEs). A polygalacturonase, which hydrolyzes the pectin component of PMs, is required for both movement and pathogenicity in grapevines. Here, we de...
