ABSTRACT

This article analyzes the differences between public and private health services regarding infrastructure and human resources at the state (subnational) and macro-regional levels in Brazil. The research collected monthly data on inpatient beds and the number of nurses, physiotherapists, and doctors from Brazilian states for 2020. Indicators were created following quarterly changes and comparing the actions of public and private healthcare entities. Variations were analyzed using temporal graphs based on means and standard deviation. The findings suggest: (1) exponential growth in health care infrastructure and human resources led by public sector investment in the second quarter, followed by a slowdown;(2) a more significant variation in the acceleration and deceleration of the public sector response in the North of Brazil and the states of Maranhäo, Rio Grande do Norte, and the Federal District;(3) the public sector was the primary response mechanism to the pandemic considering the variations throughout the year. The study concludes that the government was the leading actor in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil in 2020, pointing out that responses were uneven in the states.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practices (KAP) of patients who have undergone kidney and/or liver solid organ transplants (SOTs) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Method(s): This single institution cross-sectional study was conducted on patients who underwent a liver and/or kidney transplantation between June 01, 2020, and June 30, 2021 at Methodist Dallas Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, USA. A KAP questionnaire of 26 questions assessing KAP regarding COVID-19 was designed and sent to 1,053 SOT recipients. A score of 70% or higher was deemed to be sufficient for each corresponding category. Statistical significance amongst parameters was determined using Chi-Square test or Fisher's exact test. Result(s): A total of 238 out of 1,053 (22.6%) SOT patients responded to the survey questionnaire. Socio-demographic and clinical characteristics breakdown can be seen in Figure Attached. Those who scored sufficiently in knowledge were more likely to score higher in the practices portion of the survey (OR 4.25, 95% CI 1.59-11.38, p < 0.01). Those above 61 years of age were less likely to score higher than those between 41-60 years of age (OR 0.46, 95% CI 0.23-0.93, p = 0.0314). Combined liver and kidney transplant patients were more likely to score higher than liver only transplant patients (OR 4.84, 95% CI 1.01-23.24, p < 0.05). Patients on triple immunosuppression were more likely to adhere to sufficient COVID-19 practices than those who were not on triple immunosuppression (OR 4.07, 95% CI 1.99-8.33, p < 0.001). Conclusion(s): In this study we observed correlations between practice scores and knowledge, age, type of SOT, and use of triple immunosuppression. This information will better help medical workers, public health officials, and health education programs target areas of improvement to improve overall safety of this vulnerable population against COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>This conceptual paper aims to describe aging all over the place (AAOP), a federative framework for action, research and policy that considers older adults’ diverse experiences of place and life trajectories, along with person-centered care.Design/methodology/approach>The framework was developed through group discussions, followed by an appraisal of aging models and validation during workshops with experts, including older adults.Findings>Every residential setting and location where older adults go should be considered a “place,” flexible and adaptable enough so that aging in place becomes aging all over the place. Health-care professionals, policymakers and researchers are encouraged to collaborate around four axes: biopsychosocial health and empowerment;welcoming, caring, mobilized and supportive community;spatiotemporal life and care trajectories;and out-of-home care and services. When consulted, a Seniors Committee showed appreciation for flexible person-centered care, recognition of life transitions and care trajectories and meaningfulness of the name.Social implications>Population aging and the pandemic call for intersectoral actions and for stakeholders beyond health care to act as community leaders. AAOP provides opportunities to connect environmental determinants of health and person-centered care.Originality/value>Building on the introduction of an ecological experience of aging, AAOP broadens the concept of care as well as the political and research agenda by greater integration of community and clinical actions. AAOP also endeavors to avoid patronizing older adults and to engage society in strengthening circles of benevolence surrounding older adults, regardless of their residential setting. AAOP’s applicability is evidenced by existing projects that share its approach.

ABSTRACT

It is of no doubt that health professionals perform unique and demanding roles in their professional setting, exposing them to high levels of occupational stress and burnout, particularly in a country like India. Perfectionism is explained as a personality trait that has been studied to have an impact on variables like Job Burnout, Job Satisfaction, etc, which is not a rare trait among such professionals. Job Burnout can be understood as having three parts, emotional exhaustion, depersonalization/cynicism, and reduced personal accomplishment/efficacy. Through this study, we aim at understanding if psychological capital, which is a state like higher-order variable, has a mediating effect on the relationship between perfectionism and job burnout among healthcare professionals in India. 114 healthcare professionals currently practicing in India took part in the study. The Psychological Capital Questionnaire (2007);Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (1990);and The Job Burnout Scale (2009) were administered for measuring the variables. The mediation was studied by regression analysis and partial correlation. From the results of the current study, it was revealed that psychological capital has a mediating effect on the relationship between perfectionism and job burnout. Other results of the study included a highly significant correlation between perfectionism and burnout and between psychological capital and burnout. No significant correlation was established between perfectionism and psychological capital or its components, other than optimism. The Covid-19 pandemic situation in the country at the time of data collection of the study cannot be ignored while discussing the results of this study.

ABSTRACT

Background Global health interest continues to rise among pediatric trainees including those entering pediatric fellowships. While global health opportunities are being incorporated into many pediatric fellowship programs, there remains a paucity of global health training in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition (GHN) fellowships. In a 2014 survey by Jirapinyo et al. only 17% of responding GHN fellowships offered global health training activities. A 2018 survey by Crouse et al. showed that 34% of responding GHN fellowships offered global health electives, and none had formal global health tracks. We believe that creating a formalized global health track for GHN fellows will not only appeal to the increasing interest among applicants, but also provide a firm knowledge base on GHN topics specific to a more global level, build international collaborations, and contribute a unique perspective in our field. We aim to describe our experience with the development and implementation of a novel global health track in a pediatric GHN fellowship. Methods Planning commenced January 2021. A multidisciplinary team was assembled bringing together experts in different areas including those in other subspecialties involved in global health fellowship training. The team involved in development included GHN program director, GHN division chief, pediatric emergency medicine global health fellowship director, director of the pediatric infectious disease fellowship tropical and global medicine track, and Baylor international pediatric AIDS initiative (BIPAI) chief medical officer. Input was also received on certain aspects of the curriculum from the pediatric viral hepatitis program director, dieticians, a radiologist, an ultrasound technologist, and the pediatric point-of-care ultrasound fellowship program director. Existing clinical niche track curriculum developed within the GHN department at Texas Children's Hospital were used as a guide for the structure and different aspects to be incorporated into the track including, but not limited to, clinical activities, procedural opportunities, research, education, and teaching. Results A comprehensive, multifaceted global health curriculum was developed, and implementation began in July 2021. Clinical activities include participation in pediatric and adult viral hepatitis clinics, nutrition focused clinics, and tropical medicine clinic. Global health electives abroad were explored but deferred given travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. For procedural opportunities an ultrasound curriculum was developed including point of care ultrasound training as well as more focused training in liver, biliary, and gastrointestinal disease. A fellowship research project was developed in conjunction with the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) network in sub-Saharan Africa with mentorship both from faculty in the GHN department as well as the BIPAI network locally and abroad. The project is public health focused examining hepatitis B screening rates and prevalence among people living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. Education includes attendance of lectures given in different departments as well as cross departmental within the institution, and global lectures attended virtually. Other educational activities include review of a global health focused GHN topics and assembly of a library of resources including recent seminal papers for current and future fellows to use for review. Last, completion of the Diploma in Tropical Medicine and the Certificate of knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health Examination. Teaching opportunities include involvement in general global health education for US-based medical students and residents interested in pursuing careers in global health, and teaching residents and faculty on topics such as viral hepatitis, malnutrition, and diarrhea. Conclusion We have developed to our knowledge the first formal global health track in pediatric GHN fellowship that is feasible to integrate into the 2nd and 3rd year and omplete in the available time frame. Participation in the global health track by the first fellow is still in process and improvements are being made based on experience. A multidisciplinary team including support within the fellowship program and experts in global health training is essential to the success of a pediatric GHN global health track. International relationships either previously established by the fellow, within the department, or the institution are also necessary for the success of the track. We believe that this track will help to equip future gastroenterologists to pursue a career with a focus in global health. Future directions include recruiting future fellows to complete the curriculum within our institution, formal evaluation by fellows participating in the curriculum, and securing ongoing funding. We also hope to incorporate global health electives abroad when feasible.

ABSTRACT

Aim: This systematic review aims at presenting the moral impasse factors on health professionals in times of crisis such as pandemic covid-19 but also in the wider framework of the last decade and seeking enhancement methods of mental resilience. Methodology: The sources searched were based primarily on literature Pubmed database. Keywords such as "moral impasse", "mental resilience", "moral distress" and "covid-19" were used. The articles found, without timing, were 102 and here 13 were used. Inclusion criteria were the statistical representation, conclusions were presented additionally coupled with Covid-19 era and moral impasse and the creation of emotional resilience in healthcare sector according to the most recent studies. Results: Factors that contribute to healthcare workers' moral burnout are categorized into three classes: internal factors, external and clinical conditions. The emergence of SARS-CoV-2 revealed new factors for instance the availability and management of limited resources, the lack of protection for themselves and their loved ones, the time and critical cases management, the end of life care, the communication skills between colleagues, the infections' prevention and the imposition of new health protocols, which, added to already existing areas though. Analysis of factors and address them leads to the need for mental resilience enhancement of healthcare providers, which can be carried out at individual, interpersonal, but mainly in administrative-organizational level. Conclusion: The essential and foremost interventions pertain to the perception of ethical problems by the health administration at the time, the provision of understanding and solidarity to the clinical caregivers and their inclusion in the decision-making process but also the common response of the ethical issues that arise in the health sector both in times of crisis and in more general terms.

ABSTRACT

603,711,760 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported throughout the world and 6,484,136 individuals have died from complications of COVID-19 as of September 7, 2022. Significantly, the Omicron variant has produced the largest number of COVID-19 associated hospitalizations since the beginning of the pandemic. Cardiac injury occurs in ≥20% of the hospitalized patients with COVID-19 and is associated with cardiac dysrhythmias in 17 to 44%, cardiac injury with increases in blood troponin in 22 to 40%, myocarditis in 2 to 7%, heart failure in 4 to 21%, and thromboembolic events in 15 to 39%. Risk factors for cardiac complications include age >70 years, male sex, BMI ≥30 kg/m2, diabetes, pre-existing cardiovascular disease, and moderate to severe pneumonia at hospital presentation. Patients with prior cardiovascular disease who contract COVID-19 and experience a significant increase in their blood troponin concentration are at risk for mortality rates as high as 69%. This review focuses on the prevalence, the pathophysiologic mechanisms of CoV-2 injury to the cardiovascular system and the current recommended treatments in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in order that medical personnel can decrease the morbidity and mortality of patients with COVID-19 and effectively treat patients with Covid and post Covid syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Concerns regarding the high-level risk of infection among healthcare workers (HCWs) increased after COVID19 was declared as a pandemic in March 2020. Inadequate infection control owing to a shortage of personal protective equipment or an inconvenient usage of infection control measures may play a significant role in transmission to/among healthcare personnel. The study aimed to determine the characteristics and outcomes of COVID-19 patients who are healthcare workers along with possible transmission routes of COVID-19 in four different healthcare facilities in Istanbul. Methods: All hospital records were reviewed retrospectively. Demographic and clinical characteristics of HCWs were documented, and all infected HCWs were subjected to a phone-based mini-questionnaire and three-dimensional test (TDT). All statistical analyses were done using statistical packages SPSS Demo Ver 22 (SPSS Inc. Chicago, IL, USA). Results: Clinical features of COVID-19 were similar to the general public’s characteristics. The most frequent symptoms were cough, fever, and headache. HCWs with the O blood group tend to have asymptomatic COVID-19 infection. Hospital workers other than medical professionals have a lack of convenience of infection control measures. The median duration of PCR negativity was 9 days. HCWs who had a sore throat at the beginning of COVID-19 have a longer PCR-positive duration. Conclusion: Understanding the clinical features or characteristics of asymptomatic COVID-19 carriers may aid in the implementation of a feasible screening program for early detection. It is strongly advised that proper infection control precautions, education, and auditing of nonclinical staff be implemented. As a result, transmission among healthcare workers can be avoided.

ABSTRACT

Introduction and objective: From March 2022, China has been in the rapid progressing stage of the Omicron outbreak. However, the mental status of clinical nurses against infection by the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been not explored. Therefore, a nationwide online investigation with a larger sample size was conducted to explore the mental status of Chinese frontline clinical nurses, and its influencing factors using sound validated and reliable measurements. Material and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted, and 1,204 clinical nurses fighting the Omicron outbreak were recruited across various provinces of China. Results: The mean age of the nurses was 30.43 (SD=6.59) years. The majority were female. The rates of these nurses with depression, anxiety, stress, and insomnia symptoms were 29.2%, 37.2%, 19.1%, and 48.8%, respectively. The variables of department, insomnia, fear with COVID-19, turnover intention, job burnout, work coping style, and public recognition of nursing, were significant factors influencing the mental status of clinical nurses. Conclusions: The Chinese clinical nurses fighting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 had a similar level of depression and anxiety, a higher level of insomnia, and a lower level of stress, in comparison with nurses globally who experienced the initial period of the pandemic. Targeted investigation and interventions are urgently needed for Chinese frontline clinical nurses with high levels of anxiety, depression and insomnia, who fought against infection by Omicron. Much more professional advocacy is strongly recommended during control of the pandemic and recovery to consolidate the role and influence of nurses. The contribution and visibility of nursing should be recognized not only by the medical professionals, but by the public in general.
