Meeting the review family: exploring review types and associated information retrieval requirements.

The last decade has witnessed increased recognition of the value of literature reviews for advancing understanding and decision making. This has been accompanied by an expansion in the range of methodological approaches and types of review. However, there remains uncertainty over definitions and search requirements beyond those for the 'traditional' systematic review. This study aims to characterise health related reviews by type and to provide recommendations on appropriate methods of information retrieval...


Reduced humidity experienced by mice in vivo coincides with reduced outflow facility measured ex vivo.

Mice are routinely used to study aqueous humour dynamics. However, physical factors such as temperature and hydration affect outflow facility in enucleated eyes. This retrospective study examined whether differences in temperature and relative humidity experienced by living mice within their housing environment in vivo coincide with differences in outflow facility measured ex vivo. Facility data and environmental records were collected for one enucleated eye from 116 mice (C57BL/6J males, 9-14 weeks) at two...

Assessing the Relative Contribution of Resident Versus Facility Characteristics Associated With Antipsychotic Medication Receipt Among Nursing Facility Residents.

In 2012 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) launched a multifaceted initiative aimed at reducing the unnecessary use of antipsychotic medications in nursing facilities due to evidence these medications are associated with little or uncertain benefit and substantial risk. Yet, little is known about whether efforts to reduce antipsychotic medication should be focused on residents with targeted characteristics, or on nursing facility regulation (eg, staffing levels). Our objective was to identify ...

Do Alarm Devices Reduce Falls in the Elderly Population?

It is plausible to assume that healthcare practitioners do not know to what extent bed/body alarms could reduce falls when compared to other fall prevention measures. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine the following: Do bed/body alarms reduce the incidence of falls and/or subsequent injuries in a facility that uses such devices, as compared to a facility in which no bed/body alarms were used among the elderly over a 5-month period? A retrospective chart review was conducted in 2 homogenous lon...

The impact of facility characteristics on Merkel cell carcinoma outcomes: a retrospective cohort study.

Previous work has suggested that facility-level characteristics such as case volume and academic affiliation are associated with patient survival for rare malignancies. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare neuroendocrine skin cancer with high mortality and rising incidence. The impact of facility characteristics on MCC outcomes is not yet established.

Development of new TB regimens: Harmonizing trial design, product registration requirements, and public health guidance.

Christian Lienhardt and colleagues discuss the importance of communication and coordination between regulators, researchers, and policy makers to ensure tuberculosis trials provide high-quality evidence for policy decisions.

Spinal tuberculosis: A systematic review of case studies and development of an evidence-based clinical guidance tool for early detection.

Despite research being done on spinal tuberculosis, diagnosing this condition at an early stage remains problematic due to its insidious onset and the varying symptoms being associated. Most individuals present to the health care facility with either simple back pain at an early stage or neurological complications at a later stage, when spinal compression and vertebral collapse have occurred as a result of delayed diagnosis. The prevention of secondary complications is therefore dependent on early recogniti...

Undergraduate nursing student perceptions of directed self-guidance in a learning laboratory: An educational strategy to enhance confidence and workplace readiness.

A self-directed learning laboratory (SDL Lab) was established in which undergraduate nursing students were provided access to experienced nurses in a simulated ward environment to enhance preparedness for clinical practice. The aim of this study was to explore perspectives of final year, undergraduate student nurses about the SDL Lab and directed self-guidance, with particular focus on the impact on learning and preparedness for professional practice. The study was framed within a qualitative descriptive ap...

Effective coverage of facility delivery in Bangladesh, Haiti, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal, and Tanzania.

The persistence of preventable maternal and newborn deaths highlights the importance of quality of care as an essential element in coverage interventions. Moving beyond the conventional measurement of crude coverage, we estimated effective coverage of facility delivery by adjusting for facility preparedness to provide delivery services in Bangladesh, Haiti, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal, and Tanzania.

Successive Norovirus Outbreaks at an Event Center - Nebraska, October-November, 2017.

In October 2017, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) was notified by a local health department of a gastrointestinal illness outbreak among attendees of a wedding reception at facility A, an event center. Shortly thereafter, state and local public health officials began receiving reports of similar gastrointestinal illness among attendees of subsequent facility A events. An investigation was initiated to identify cases, establish the cause, assess possible transmission routes, and p...

Investigating Haptic Guidance Methods for Teaching Children Handwriting Skills.

Haptics technologies have the potential to considerably improve the acquisition of handwriting skills by providing physical assistance to improve movement accuracy and precision. To date, very few studies have thoroughly examined the effectiveness of various haptic guidance methods to leverage the acquisition of handwriting skills. In this paper, we examine the role of several methods for haptic guidance, namely full haptic guidance, partial haptic guidance, disturbance haptic guidance, and no-haptic guidan...

Frameworks and guidance to support ethical public health practice.

This article reports and reflects on an element of a recent survey of UK public health professionals, specifically in relation to the Public Health Knowledge and Skills Framework (PHSKF) and the ethical requirements that underpin public health practice. Only 38.4% of respondents reported accessing the PHKSF and a mere 13.7% reported accessing the accompanying background paper on ethical public health practice. Given that ethical practice underpins the PHSKF, it is concerning that so few respondents are fami...

Relevance of a skilled vascular surgeon and optimized facility practices in the long-term patency of arteriovenous fistulas: a prospective study.

Arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) are the best hemodialysis vascular accesses, but their failure rate remains high. Few studies have addressed the role of the vascular surgeon's skills and the facility's practices. We aimed to study these factors, with the hypothesis that the surgeon's skills and facility practices would have an important role in primary failure and patency rates at 12 months, respectively.
