Despite growing research on youth language brokering in immigrant families, evidence regarding its developmental outcomes remains mixed. This study took a person-centered approach, exploring subgroups of language brokers and identifying predictors and long-term outcomes of the subgroup membership. Participants were Chinese American adolescents (N = 350 at Time 1; M = 17.04; SD = 0.72; 59% female) followed over two waves spaced four years apart (longitudinal N = 291). Two distinct subgroups o...
Patient portals are expanding as a means to engage patients and have evidence for benefit in the outpatient setting. However, few studies have evaluated their use in the inpatient setting, or with vulnerable patient populations.
The number of asylum seekers entering the Netherlands has increased. However, the screening, detection and treatment of infectious diseases in asylum seekers has barely changed over the last 15 years. Infectious diseases, including vaccine-preventable diseases are being carried into the Netherlands by asylum seekers. However, neither the number nor the type of disease pose a real threat to public health. It is important to be alert to carriers of multidrug-resistant organisms among asylum seekers. National ...
This study analyses public perceptions and preferences regarding scope, access and funding of health care for asylum seekers (AS).
Anxiety and subjective memory complaints (SMC) are major risk factors for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and dementia. However, the association between anxiety, SMC and medical help-seeking due to complaints is not clear. Here, we assessed anxiety which rose specifically by memory examination and compared it between help-seekers in memory clinics (HS) and non-help seekers (NHS).
The aim of this study was to assess asylum seekers' views on their legal situations, asylum procedures and living conditions, and the relationship of these factors towards psychological stress.
In 2016, over 65 million individuals were displaced from their homes due to human rights abuses, and 262,000 people applied for asylum in the USA. Individuals who have experienced persecution are present in many primary and specialty clinics. A medical forensic evaluation can increase the likelihood of a successful asylum case. This paper reviews the legal framework for asylum and the contribution forensic evaluations can make to this vulnerable population. Physicians without asylum expertise can help these...
The progress and recovery of a patient with mania during hospitalization is differently seen by professionals working at an admission ward and by relatives of the patient. Professionals often indicate that the situation of the patient is improving while relatives estimate the improvement to be minimal in relation to the recovery of the patient.
Continued advancements in perioperative care and anesthesia technology have improved surgical outcomes and accelerated the patient's ability to resume preoperative activities. With the current emphasis on decreased utilization of expensive hospital resources, a shorter length of stay while maintaining patient satisfaction is encouraged for maximum reimbursement. Through the implementation of evidence-based protocols that standardize care and promote patient medical optimization, the surgical stress response...
Sensation seeking is closely related to practicing high-risk sports. This domain offers individuals an opportunity to achieve an increased level of arousal. Moreover, stress reactivity implies interindividual differences in the capacity to respond to a stressor. The purpose of this study was to examine whether high sensation seekers (HSS) compared to low sensation seekers (LSS) experience lower levels of stress on a physiological and psychological basis. Stress was induced in a sport-specific experimental p...
Patient expectations have been demonstrated to influence recovery following spine surgery. Addressing patient expectations specifically in regards to pain and post-surgical healing is an important factor in improving recovery patterns. Pre-surgical education can potentially help manage patient expectations.
Visual analog scale patient global assessments (PGA-VAS) are widely used in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) practice and research. Low PGA-VAS scores are required for remission. Vulnerable patients may have difficulty completing the PGA-VAS. There is limited information about both patients' perceptions of PGA-VAS and how patients score VAS model disease states. The objective of this study is to understand vulnerable patients' perspectives regarding PGA-VAS and model disease states.
This article details the obstacles of implementing a cardiac-specific enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program in a 919-bed not-for-profit community-based health system and the benefits of ERAS programs for different patient populations.
Early detection of vulnerable older adults at the emergency department (ED) and implementation of targeted interventions to prevent functional decline may lead to better patient outcomes.
The majority of children supported with ventricular assist devices (VADs) are bridged to heart transplantation. Although bridge to recovery has been reported, low recovery patient numbers has precluded systematic analysis. The aim of this study was to delineate recovery rates and predictors of recovery and to report on long-term follow-up after VAD explantation in children.
Improvement of recovery parameters using patient-controlled epidural analgesia for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy in enhanced recovery after surgery: A prospective, randomized single center study.
We compared the effects of thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) to conventional patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) on several postoperative parameters of recovery after elective video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy.
In recent years Europe has experienced a dramatic increase in migration flows. Nevertheless, limited data is available about the occurrence of neglected parasitic diseases among migrant population. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of intestinal and urinary parasites in newly arrived asylum seekers.
Treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) with direct-acting antiviral (DAA) regimens has resulted in high rates of sustained virologic response (SVR). Treatment of vulnerable populations may be improved by incorporating an on-site intensive specialty pharmacy (ON-ISP).
Colorectal surgery outcomes must be accurately assessed and aligned with patient priorities. No study to date has investigated the patient's subjective assessment of outcomes most important to them during and following their surgical recovery. Although surgeons greatly value the benefits of laparoscopy, patient priorities remain understudied.
To investigate the effect of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program on perioperative outcomes with an emphasis on opioid consumption and patient-reported outcomes in the immediate and extended postoperative periods.
While there are no clear definitions of recovery, it is clear that the goals of recovery depend on the severity of acute kidney injury and the clinical context. The degree of renal recovery affects both renal and clinical prognosis. There are presently few guidelines on recovery targets, which range in extent from dialysis independence via normalization of serum creatinine to recovery of renal functional reserve. However, while there are no validated biomarkers for predicting recovery, evidence suggests tha...
Introduction Vulnerable pregnant women (e.g. women with low socio-economic status or recent immigrants) are less likely to receive adequate prenatal care or to attend perinatal education classes. CenteringPregnancy (CP) is a model of group prenatal care which combines assessment, education and support. This study aimed to assess patient experience among vulnerable women in group prenatal care compared to individual care. Methods Women participating in CP at a community-based health centre in urban Alberta w...
Among asylum seekers (AS), mental health conditions are highly prevalent. However this population group has poor access to adequate services and frequently incurs discontinuity of mental healthcare. Many factors explain discontinuity of mental healthcare for asylum seekers. The aim of this study is to evaluate if facilitation of care for AS decreases healthcare provider stereotypes of this population and improves their continuity of care.
