Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent, with around 1.5 million deaths reported in 2018, and is a major contributor to suffering worldwide, with an estimated 10 million new cases every year. In the context of the World Health Organization's End TB strategy and the quest for digital innovations, there is a need to understand what is happening around the world regarding research into the use of digital technology for better TB care and control.
Rapid advancements in technology and the ubiquity of personal mobile digital devices have brought forth innovative methods of acquiring healthcare data. Smartphones can capture vast amounts of data both passively through inbuilt sensors or connected devices and actively via user engagement. This scoping review aims to evaluate evidence to date on the use of passive digital sensing/phenotyping in assessment and prediction of mental health.
The uptake of digital health technology (DHT) has been surprisingly low in clinical practice. Despite showing great promise to improve patient outcomes and disease management, there is limited information on the factors that contribute to the limited adoption of DHT, particularly for hypertension management.
Digital healthcare is a rapidly growing healthcare sector. Its importance has been recognised at both national and international level, with the WHO recently publishing its first global strategy for digital health. The use of digital technology within cystic fibrosis (CF) has also increased. CF is a chronic, life-limiting condition, in which the treatment burden is high and treatment regimens are not static. Digital technologies present an opportunity to support the lives of people with CF. We included 59 a...
Cluster randomized control trials (cRCTs) have unique challenges compared to single site trials with regards to conduct of the trial, and it is important to understand these barriers. The aim of this scoping review was to describe the current literature surrounding the implementation of the cRCTs in hospitals.
(1) To review the literature on the use of technology to provide emotional and social support to nurses; (2) to identify and evaluate gaps in the research; (3) to assess whether a systematic review would be valuable and (4) to make recommendations for future research.
The rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) is important for patient treatment and infection control. Current molecular diagnostic techniques for TB have insufficient sensitivity to detect samples with low bacterial loads. The sensitivity of molecular testing depends on not only performance of assay technique but also nucleic acid extraction method. Here, we have presented a novel approach using exosomal DNA (exoDNA) and droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) platform to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA in clinical ...
Significant variation exists in microsurgery training resources provided across plastic surgery residency programs, and dedicated microsurgery courses can be logistically difficult to access (cost, location, protected time, etc). Widespread use of personal digital technology has facilitated the emergence of resources that enable easily accessible microsurgical training through digital modalities that augment traditional training. The authors sought to conduct the first systematic review of all such resource...
Nudging in microbiology is an antimicrobial stewardship strategy to influence decision making through the strategic reporting of microbiology results while preserving prescriber autonomy. The purpose of this scoping review was to identify the evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of nudging strategies in susceptibility result reporting to improve antimicrobial use.
Emeritus Professor , University of Southampton, discusses a new strand of the Government's , which is commited to more fully embrace digital innovations, including voice-assisted technology.
Loneliness is an emerging public health problem that is associated with social, emotional, mental and physical health issues. The application of digital technology (DT) interventions to reduce loneliness has significantly increased in the recent years. The effectiveness of DT interventions needs to be assessed systematically.
There have been increases in adolescent depression and suicidal behaviour over the last two decades that coincide with the advent of social media (SM) (platforms that allow communication via digital media), which is widely used among adolescents. This scoping review examined the bi-directional association between the use of SM, specifically social networking sites (SNS), and depression and suicidality among adolescents. The studies reviewed yielded four main themes in SM use through thematic analysis: quant...
Many health care organizations around the world have implemented health information technologies (ITs) to enhance health service efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. Studies have demonstrated that promising outcomes of health IT initiatives can be obtained when patients and family members participate and engage in the adoption, use, and evaluation of these technologies. Despite knowing this, there is a lack of health care organizations using patient and family engagement strategies to enhance the use and ...
Refugees are at increased risk of tuberculosis infection due to time spent in crowded camps, decreased nutrition and originating from countries whose own tuberculosis control systems may have been disturbed. In Australia, tuberculosis is screened for in for all refugees aged 11-34 years old and in those aged 2-10 years arriving from high-incidence countries. Our aims were to determine if refugee children aged under 2 years of age should also be screened.
Human tuberculosis is a life-threatening infection following the inhalation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, while the closely related bacteria Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium canettii are thought to be transmitted by ingestion. To explore whether M. tuberculosis could also infect individuals by ingestion, male BALBc mice were fed 2 x 106 CFUs of M. tuberculosis Beijing or phosphate-buffered saline as a negative control, over a 28-day experiment. While eight negative control mice remained disease-free, ...
Intestinal tuberculosis is an infectious disease of the extrapulmonary manifestation with the Mycobacteria tuberculosis complex. In developed countries, this disease is rarely seen. The clinical features are heterogeneous and unspecific. Furthermore, intestinal tuberculosis poses diagnostic challenges. Regarding intestinal tuberculosis the Ziehl-Neelsen staining for acid-fast bacillus, PCR examination and culture methods show only poor sensitivity and specificity. In this case series, we present three patie...
As DNA sequencing and synthesis become cheaper and more easily accessible, the scale and complexity of biological engineering projects is set to grow. Yet, although there is an accelerating convergence between biotechnology and digital technology, a deficit in software and laboratory techniques diminishes the ability to make biotechnology more agile, reproducible and transparent while, at the same time, limiting the security and safety of synthetic biology constructs. To partially address some of these prob...

This review synthesized data from three sources: (a) narrative reviews and meta-analyses conducted between 2014 and 2019, (b) large-scale preregistered cohort studies and (c) intensive longitudinal and ecolog...
In response to the promotion of sex and gender integration in health-related research, we conducted a scoping review evaluating to what extent sex and gender were considered in the transplantation literature.
The TNF inhibitors were the first immunobiologicals used to treat rheumatic diseases, but their use is associated with an increased risk of tuberculosis. The primary objective is to estimate the incidence of tuberculosis in patients with rheumatic diseases exposed to anti-TNF therapy. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the incidence of tuberculosis by region and subgroups of diseases, to review the presentation of tuberculosis in these patients, and to assess the time elapsed between onset of anti-TNF...
While the use of digital technology has developed in nursing practice in the hospital setting, this movement is late to arrive in homecare. Structural factors can explain these disparities, which are also due to insufficient training of private practice professionals and the fact that digital tools are not always suited to their mode of practice. However, there are adapted and innovative solutions, such as platforms for the organisation of homecare.
This scoping review aims to provide an overview of current evidence on huddles in health care settings involving frontline staff.
