Self-assessment is fundamental in surgical training. Accuracy of self-assessment is superior with greater age, experience, and the use of video playback. Presently, there is scarce evidence in the literature regarding predictors for a surgical trainee's aptitude for self-assessment. The objective of this study was to investigate whether emotional intelligence or visual-spatial aptitude can predict effective self-assessment among novice surgeons performing laparoscopic appendectomy (LA).
Fall risk assessment is a time-consuming and resource-intensive activity. Patient-driven self-assessment as a preventive measure might be a solution to reduce the number of patients undergoing a full clinical fall risk assessment.
Objective assessment of symptoms in bronchiectasis is important for research and in clinical practice. The COPD Assessment Test (CAT) is a short, simple assessment tool widely used in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The items included in the CAT are not specific to COPD and also reflect the dominant symptoms of bronchiectasis. We therefore performed a study to validate the CAT as an outcome measure in bronchiectasis.
Preoperative surgical risk assessment is important in terms of postoperative morbidity and mortality. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these surgeries via an ideal risk assessment model, and reduce risks via applying some findings (for instance, perioperative beta-blockers). There are some risk assessment systems, but these have generally not been verified for patients with gynecologic cancer. The aim of this study was to assess the risk of surgery for gynecological oncologi...
The surgical success related with many factors belonging to the patient and disease. This study aims to analyze the preoperative, intraoperative characteristics and postoperative results, and factors affecting the surgical success in different types of chronic otitis media (COM).
The aim of the study was to examine baseline neurocognitive impairment (NCI) prevalence and factors associated with NCI among patients enrolled in the Neurocognitive Assessment in the Metabolic and Aging Cohort (NAMACO) study.
Non-invasive assessment of portal hypertension is an area of unmet need. This proof of concept study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a multi-parametric magnetic resonance technique in the assessment of portal hypertension. Comparison to other non-invasive technologies was a secondary aim.
In Australia it is recommended that all older people undergoing rehabilitation have a cognitive screen. We performed a longitudinal study comparing the correlation of two cognitive screening tools - the Rowland Universal Dementia Assessment Scale (RUDAS) and Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) with discharge outcomes in a geriatric inpatient setting. The RUDAS cut-off (
Unpredictable difficult laryngoscopy (DL) remains a challenge for anesthesiologists, especially when difficult ventilation occurs during standard laryngoscopy. Accurate airway assessment should always be performed, but the common airway assessment methods only perform superficial screening. Thus, the deep laryngopharyngeal anatomy may not be evaluated. Ultrasound-based airway assessment has been recently proposed as a useful, simple, and non-invasive bedside tool as an adjunct to clinical methods, which may...
Self-assessment and critical thinking skills are required for students to reflect on the knowledge and skills they acquire in a dental hygiene program. The Commission on Dental Accreditation states that all graduates must be competent in the knowledge, skills, and values needed to practice as a new practitioner. In order to foster self-assessment, an e-portfolio incorporating a graduate competency template was implemented into a newly designed seminar course. The purpose of this study was to gain student pe...
Pain assessment is the first step in managing pain; however, this can be challenging, particularly in settings such as the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). This paper reports the current pain assessment practices from a study that was conducted describing the prevalence of pain, pain assessment, painful procedures, interventions, and characteristics of critically-ill children. Specifically, this paper addresses the child's communicative ability, pain scales, and characteristics of pain.
Health-related Quality of Life (QoL) is one of the most important endpoints in bronchiectasis (BE). However, the majority of HRQoL questionnaires are time-consuming or not validated in BE. The COPD Assessment Test (CAT) in an easy-to-use questionnaire. The objective of this study was to perform a complete validation of CAT in BE.
Safety assessment is crucial for the development of continuous improvement strategies. However, most studies assess construction safety with cross-sectional information and thus management tends to be passive. This study proposes an evidence-based methodology incorporating hazard rectification efficiency for project safety assessment.
Lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduces cardiovascular risk irrespective of age, but the evidence is less strong for older patients.
Maximum repetition rate (MRR) is often used in the assessment of speech motor performance in older children and adults. The present study aimed to evaluate a standardized protocol for MRR assessment in young children in Dutch.
To study and evaluate the predictive value of strain imaging parameters in patients undergoing viability assessment postmyocardial infarction (MI) in comparison with Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) alone.
Little is known about whether off-the-shelf wearable sensor data can contribute to fall risk classification or complement clinical assessment tools such as the Resident Assessment Instrument-Home Care (RAI-HC).
The quality of outcome assessment in acne studies has been either subjective/insufficient or time consuming through the ordinary lesion counting.
The assessment of loss of tissue autofluorescence (LAF) has been proposed as an adjunct to comprehensive oral examination to enhance the detection of mucosal lesions harbouring dysplasia or carcinoma. The assessment of LAF is not based on completely objectified parameters therefore intraobserver and interobserver cannot be neglected alongside the issue of correct interpretation of LAF. The present study evaluated intraobserver and interobserver variability in the clinical assessment of LAF as performed by o...
Patient global assessment (PGA) is purported to add the patient's perspective in the composite measures of RA. However, PGA is not standardized and it is not known whether patients' interpretation of the measure is consistent with its intended purpose. This study aimed to explore difficulties experienced by patients with RA in completing PGA, and to assess the impact of a structured explanation in improving its validity and reliability.
Persistent cognitive impairment is prevalent in unipolar and bipolar disorders and is associated with decreased quality of life and psychosocial dysfunction. The screen for cognitive impairment in psychiatry (SCIP) test is a validated paper-and-pencil instrument for the assessment of cognition in affective disorders. However, there is no digital cognitive screening tool for the brief and accurate assessment of cognitive impairments in this patient group.
Inertial sensors have the potential to provide objective and practical methods to assess joint and limb function in the clinical setting. The aim of this study is to evaluate the psychometric properties of inertial sensor metrics in the assessment of patients with subacromial shoulder pain.
