In England, opt-out dry blood spot prison screening for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C (HCV) has been introduced to scale-up access to care. Recent advances in point-of-care HCV diagnostics provide an opportunity to improve diagnosis and treatment uptake. We compared the retention along and time intervals between each aspect of the HCV care continuum for an alternative rapid point-of-care-testing and simplified treatment strategy with existing national opt-out HCV dry blood spot testing and treatment at a...
Hepatitis B viral (HBV) infection remains an important public health concern particularly in Africa. Between 1990 and 2013, Hepatitis B mortality increased by 63%. In recent times, effective antiviral agents against HBV such as Nucleos(t)ide analogs (NAs) are available. These drugs are capable of suppressing HBV replication, preventing progression of chronic Hepatitis B to cirrhosis, and reducing the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma and liver-related death. Notwithstanding, these treatments are underused de...
In Australia, Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) treatment is declining, despite broad access to direct-acting antiviral medication. People who inject drugs are proportionally over-represented in emergency department presentations. Emergency department assessment of people who have injected drugs for HCV presents an opportunity to engage this marginalised population with treatment. We describe the outcomes of risk-based screening and point-of-care anti-HCV testing for emergency department patients, and linkage to outp...
Nurses have been at the forefront of the care of patients with hepatitis C since hepatitis C virus was identified in 1989. Treatments of patients with hepatitis C have evolved over the time to the present moment, where there are numerous options available for patients that are efficacious, simple, and well-tolerated. However, many patients with hepatitis C do not know they are infected or have never been treated. Nurses can continue to influence patients' engagement in their care, direct patients toward tes...
User-friendly information at the point of care should be well structured, rapidly accessible, and comprehensive. Also, this information should be trustworthy, as it will be used by health care practitioners to practice evidence-based medicine. Therefore, a standard, validated tool to evaluate the trustworthiness of such point-of-care information resources is needed.
Point-of-care ultrasound has become an important adjunct for diagnostic assessment in pediatric emergency medicine. In this case series, we demonstrate how ocular point-of-care ultrasound is used to correctly diagnose ocular pathologies and to expedite care.
The prevalence of anti-hepatitis C virus antibody in Punjab, India is 3.6% with an estimated 728,000 persons with viremic chronic hepatitis C (CHC). The Mukh-Mantri Punjab Hepatitis C Relief Fund, launched on 18 June 2016, provides no-cost generic direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) with sofosbuvir+ledipasvir±ribavirin or sofosbuvir+daclatasvir±ribavirin with the goal to eliminate CHC from Punjab. We assessed the safety and efficacy of decentralized treatment of CHC in a public health care setting.
Hepatitis C virus elimination may be possible by scaling up direct-acting antiviral (DAA) treatment. Due to the safety and simplicity of DAA treatment, primary care-based treatment delivery is now feasible, efficacious and may be cheaper than hospital-based specialist care. In this paper, we use Prime Study data - a randomised controlled trial comparing the uptake of DAA treatment between primary and hospital-based care settings amongst people who inject drugs (PWID) - to estimate the cost of initiating tre...
We aimed to describe point of care communication encounters with patients' families in centers with open visitation practices.
World Hepatitis Day, observed each year on July 28, was established to raise awareness and promote understanding of viral hepatitis around the world. The theme of this year's World Hepatitis Day is "Invest in Eliminating Hepatitis," underscoring the need to increase commitment for hepatitis response. In 2015, an estimated 257 million persons were living with hepatitis B and 71 million with hepatitis C worldwide (1).
Point of-care (POC) HIV-1 RNA tests which are accurate and easy to use with limited infrastructure are needed in resource-limited settings (RLS). We systematically reviewed evidence of POC test performance compared to laboratory-based HIV-1 RNA assays and the potential utility of these tests for diagnosis and care in RLS.
Point-of-care (POC) C-reactive protein (CRP) testing in the primary healthcare setting is a cost-effective approach for reducing antibiotic prescriptions, but has yet to be widely adopted.
In recent years, point-of-care ultrasound has revolutionized the care of critically ill patients, and currently, it is considered an essential work tool for practitioners. Although its use is growing in developing countries of Latin America, for many reasons it is still underutilized. In this article, we describe the current status of point-of-care ultrasound in critical care in several developing countries of Latin America and address the problems and barriers that prevent its implementation. Finally, we p...
An adolescent female patient presented to the emergency department with diffuse, severe lower abdominal pain and vomiting. The initial suspected diagnosis was appendicitis. Point-of-care ultrasound did not visualize the appendix but demonstrated a suspected left ovarian torsion, which was confirmed by radiology-performed ultrasound. The clinical presentation, in combination with images obtained via point-of-care ultrasound, helped to expedite gynecology consultation and immediate surgery.
The objective was to study the long-term (lifetime) cost effectiveness of four different hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment models of care (MOC) with directly acting antiviral drugs.
Mobile applications allow health care providers to capture point-of-care medical photographs and transfer them to the electronic health record (EHR). It is unclear how providers use these photographs or how they affect clinical care.
To identify the time at which point of care ultrasound static image recognition and image acquisition skills decay in novice learners.
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is an emerging clinical tool in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Recent literature describing the use of POCUS for various applications in the NICU has garnered increased interest among neonatologists.
As hepatitis C virus birth cohort (1945-1965) screening in primary care improves, testing patterns in response to persistently abnormal liver tests are less well known.
Point-of-care ultrasonography is a real-time dynamic examination that is useful for evaluating the location of foreign bodies in a patient's gastrointestinal tract and soft tissue. In particular, it is useful for identifying radiolucent foreign bodies that are difficult to visualize using routine x-ray examinations. This case study describes the visualization of a radiolucent foreign body in a patient's subglottic region using point-of-care ultrasonography.
Many Indigenous Australians in northern Australia living with chronic Hepatitis B are unaware of their diagnosis due to low screening rates. A venous blood point of care test (POCT) or oral fluid laboratory test could improve testing uptake in this region. The purpose of this study was to assess the field performance of venous blood POCT and laboratory performance of an oral fluid Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) test in Indigenous individuals living in remote northern Australian communities. The study w...
Rapid group A Streptococcus point-of-care testing is not currently used in the United Kingdom in the management of acute tonsillitis. This prospective, observational study describes a strong association between a molecular-based point-of-care testing result and outpatient antibiotic prescribing (odds ratio = 48; P < 0.001) in 339 children seen at our center. It highlights challenges in implementing new rapid diagnostics.
The Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System is among the largest integrated health systems in the United States. Many VA enrollees are dual users of Medicare, and little research has examined methods to most accurately predict which veterans will be mostly reliant on VA services in the future. This study examined whether machine learning methods can better predict future reliance on VA primary care compared with traditional statistical methods.
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between self-care agency and health self-efficacy measures, in patients with viral hepatitis.
