first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 15 2018If patient engagement is the new ‘blockbuster drug,’ why are we not seeing spectacular effects? A team of researchers from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and the Berkeley School of Public Health at UC Berkeley recently conducted a study designed to help answer that question and to better understand how patient engagement and activation (PAE) practices –like goal-setting, motivational interviewing, and shared decision making–are being integrated into clinical practice. What they found was a great deal of positive sentiment about PAE among the healthcare professionals surveyed, but much less understanding and implementation of patient engagement and activation tools and approaches.”Patient engagement has featured prominently in recent healthcare research and policy, probably most notably in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) legislation. Yet, there hasn’t been much research to date on how patient engagement approaches are being integrated into new care delivery and payment models,” says lead author and Dartmouth Institute Assistant Professor Manish K. Mishra, MD, MPH.To address this gap, the research team assessed levels of patient engagement and activation at 71 primary care sites at two ACOs–the DaVita Healthcare Partners in Los Angeles and Advocate Healthcare in Chicago. They conducted 103 interviews with 68 healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, medical assistants, as well as, diabetic nurse educators, social workers, and site administrators. The researchers said they concentrated on particular aspects of PAE, such as, shared decision making, goal-setting, and motivational interviewing, due to The Dartmouth Institute’s extensive work in these areas. They chose to focus onACOs because of their reputation for undertaking patient engagement activities. The interviews designed to measure understanding of PAE and barriers to implementation were conducted in May of 2015 and May of 2016.In a report of their findings recently published in BMJ Open, the researchers say four dominant themes emerged during their analysis of the interviews: participants recognized and were well aware of PAE terminology; participants had positive appraisals of these PAE approaches; participants had limited understanding of specific PAE techniques including goal-setting, motivational interviewing, and shared decision making; participants reported or acknowledged partial implementation of PAE approaches.Related StoriesAXT enhances cellular research product portfolio with solutions from StemBioSysSchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds researchResearch sheds light on sun-induced DNA damage and repairWhile most interview participants expressed positive opinions about PAE and most (but not all) were comfortable answering questions about PAE concepts and skills, many had limited understanding of them–describing them in ways that didn’t align with accepted definitions. Some clinicians, for example, described “goal-setting” as the assigning (without collaboration) of clinical targets to their patients, such as, losing a certain amount of weight within a time period. Many participants also often failed to understand the difference between general patient education materials (patient information) and patient-facing tools designed to help patients understand trade-offs when comparing treatment options.Participants readily acknowledged that implementation of PAE was limited. However, they cited factors such as low levels of administrative support and lack of time as the primary barriers, as opposed to lack of understanding or training in PAE techniques. Researchers also described finding somewhat of a Dunning-Kruger effect, with health professionals and ACO leadership confident they are using PAE approaches, when, in reality, the in-depth, semi-structured interviews often revealed low levels of understanding and implementation.”When PAE is misinterpreted as pressing patients to meet incentivized targets, which we found evidence of in our analysis, that sets the stage for conflict, frustration, and professional burnout. And, just as importantly, these types of incentivized targets can lead patients to become disengaged,” Mishra says, adding that if healthcare organizations really want to achieve patient-centered care, they need to “move beyond a superficial understating of PAE.” Source:https://tdi.dartmouth.edu/news-events/patient-engagement-new-blockbuster-drug-not-quite-yetlast_img read more

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 13 2019Stimulating the brain with implanted electrodes is a successful, but very drastic measure. Researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology, Kempenhaeghe, Philips and Gent University will therefore be working on a method to stimulate the brain using electrodes that are placed on the head rather than inside it. Their goal is to customize treatment for patients with severe epilepsy. Incidentally, they will also settle the scientific discussion about the efficacy of non-invasive electrical neurostimulation.Epilepsy affects approximately 120,000 people in the Netherlands, about thirty percent of whom do not respond to medication and remain prone to seizures. For this group, electrical brain stimulation can be a solution. DBS (deep brain stimulation), with electrodes deep in the brain, has already proven to be effective. The electrodes must be positioned accurately so that they stimulate exactly the right brain area. This accuracy issue is still a bottleneck for non-invasive neurostimulation, because it is not yet sufficiently known where exactly the stimulation needs to be targeted and it is even more difficult to reach the right place in the brain from the outside.Related StoriesResearchers report how a popular antidepressant drug could rewire the brainStudy offers clues about how to prevent brain inflammation in Alzheimer’sResearch team to create new technology for tackling concussionPersonalizedThe researchers expect a new Philips medical instrument to provide the solution for focal seizures; seizures in a specific part of the brain. This is a system with 256 electrodes that not only measures brain activity (EEG), but can also apply very targeted current. Project leader and technical research leader Rob Mestrom of Eindhoven University of Technology: “This instrument therefore offers us the unique opportunity to see more accurately than before where exactly in the brain an epileptic seizure takes place. We can then stimulate precisely that point and measure the effect directly. This gives a personalized approach, because it is tailored to the readings of the individual patient.”The basic idea of the project, called PerStim, is simple, says Paul Boon, clinical research leader and professor at UGent and TU Eindhoven. “When we have located the source of the seizure, we target an electrical stimulus at that spot that is exactly the opposite of the measured activity. As a result, the seizure should be ‘extinguished’. We will investigate this with both direct and alternating currents.”Clinical testingThe first step in the research project is the development of a personalized calculation model to accurately reconstruct the epileptic focus. The researchers will then determine the stimulation parameters to achieve the desired focus of the stimulation. Then they will look at how they can best measure the effect of stimulation. The results will gradually be applied in clinical trials. Two PhD students and a postdoc will be appointed for the project. The research, with a budget of 1.9 million euros, is part of EindhovenMedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC), a broad research collaboration between TU/e, Kempenhaeghe and Philips, among others.

first_imgRepresentative image   –  RV Moorthy Orissa COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENTS SHAREcenter_img March 05, 2019 Published on The Odisha government on Tuesday approved Haldia Petrochemicals Ltd’s (HPL) proposal to set up an integrated refinery with an aromatics complex for the production of paraxylene and purified terepthalic acid (PTA) in Balasore district. The estimated investment on the project, which is set to come up near the Subarnarekha Port, is close to ₹28,700 crore ($4.05 billion), said a press statement issued by the State government. The investment proposal was accorded approval by the High Level Clearance Authority (HLCA) headed by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. As per the proposal submitted by Kolkata-based HPL on March 1, the land requirement for the project is close to 2,000 acres. This will be recommended for allotment post assessment by the Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Odisha Ltd (IPICOL). “The first phase of the HPL project approved today is expected to be operationalised within five years of allotment of land,” the release said. PTA, one of the products of the project, can be used to set up downstream units in polyester fibres and polyethyl terephthalate (PET). These products are used by several medium- and small-scale enterprises to make garments and food packaging applications. Other proposalsIn addition to HPL, the HLCA also approved the proposal of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd to set up a polyester products manufacturing unit of 300 KTPA capacity at the textiles park coming up at Bhadrak district, at an investment of close to ₹1,970 crore. The project will create employment opportunities for 209 people, and is expected to be implemented within four years of land allotment.The HLCA also approved two proposals of Rungta Mines Ltd. The first proposal was for the conversion/expansion of its 5 X 100 TPD sponge iron plant to a 0.53 MTPA integrated steel plant at Karakolha in Keonjhar district. The expansion would entail investment of around ₹1,678 crore. The second proposal by the company was for setting up an integrated steel plant of 0.53 MTPA capacity at Karakhendra in Keonjhar district at an investment of close to ₹1,848 crore. haldialast_img read more
