Moving from place to place in the last year of life: A qualitative study identifying care setting transition issues and solutions in Ontario.

Moving from one care setting to another is common as death nears. Many concerns exist over these end-of-life (EOL) care setting transitions, including low-quality moves as mistakes and other mishaps can occur. Delayed or denied moves are also problematic, such as a move out of hospital for dying inpatients who want to spend their last hours or days at home. The aim of the study was to identify current issues or problems with care setting transitions during the last year of life as well as potential or actua...

The role of personal resilience and personality traits of healthcare students on their attitudes towards interprofessional collaboration.

Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) improves communication between healthcare workers and healthcare delivery. Interprofessional education (IPE) is essential in preparing healthcare students for cooperating with other healthcare disciplines in a real work setting. Although higher education settings have a responsibility to provide collaborative healthcare practice to students, IPE has not yet been prompted worldwide as a formal division in health professional education and in Israel IPE among health profe...

A Hilly path through the thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of protein solutions.

The opus of Don Winzor in the fields of physical and analytical biochemistry is a major component of that certain antipodean approach to this broad area of research that blossomed in the second half of the twentieth century. The need to formulate problems in terms of thermodynamic nonideality posed the challenge of describing a clear route from molecular interactions to the parameters that biochemists routinely measure. Mapping out this route required delving into the statistical mechanics of solutions of m...

Highlighting a Common Quality of Care Delivery Problem: Overuse of Low-Value Healthcare Services.

Low-value healthcare services (LVHS) are defined as procedures delivered that provide little or no clinical benefit. Overuse of LVHS, or delivery when the risks exceed the benefits, contributes to excessive spending without improved outcomes. Furthermore, overuse contributes to healthcare waste.

Rural and remote speech-language pathology service inequities: An Australian human rights dilemma.

Access to healthcare is a fundamental human right for all Australians. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights acknowledges the right to freedom of opinion and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas. Capacities for self-expression and effective communication underpin the realisation of these fundamental human rights. For rural and remote Australian children this realisation is compromised by complex disadvantages and inequities that contribute to communication delays, inequity of ...

Interventions to increase tuberculosis case detection at primary healthcare or community-level services.

Pulmonary tuberculosis is usually diagnosed when symptomatic individuals seek care at healthcare facilities, and healthcare workers have a minimal role in promoting the health-seeking behaviour. However, some policy specialists believe the healthcare system could be more active in tuberculosis diagnosis to increase tuberculosis case detection.

Free Active Chlorine in Sodium Hypochlorite Solutions Admixed with Octenidine, SmearOFF, Chlorhexidine, and EDTA.

The therapeutic effects of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solutions are dependent on the levels of free available chlorine (FAC). Mixing these solutions with irrigants can result in significant reductions in FAC. Although the effect of some irrigants on FAC is known, the effect of other commonly used irrigants is not. Thus, the therapeutic ramifications of the concurrent use of these on the efficiency of NaOCl solutions is not known.

Assessing healthcare professionals' experiences of integrated care: do surveys tell the full story?

Unlike many other nursing specialties, home healthcare nursing has few professional organizations to develop or support its practice. This article describes how an international n...

Can the Aviation Industry be Useful in Teaching Oncology about Safety?

Healthcare practitioners have long considered aviation as a domain from which much can be learned about safety. Over the past 30 years, attempts have been made to apply aviation safety-related concepts to healthcare. Although some applications have been successful, a few decades later, many healthcare safety experts have learned that the appeal of the aviation-healthcare analogy is an illusion. Both domains are so basically dissimilar that simple adoption of aviation concepts will not be successful. However...
