Educational health care materials available on both the CIRSE and the SIR Web sites are presented in language in the aggregate that could be too difficult for many lay people to fully understand. Given the complex nature of vascular and interventional radiology, it may be advantageous to rewrite these educational resources at a lower reading level to increase comprehension. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available Abstract Background Malnutrition in dependent patients has a high prevalence and can influence the prognosis associated with diverse pathologic processes, decrease quality of life, and increase morbidity-mortality and hospital admissions.
On a schedule of 0—6—12 months, patients are evaluated as follows: Mini Nutritional Assessment MNA, food intake, dentures, degree of dependency Barthel test, cognitive state Pfeiffer test, mood status Yesavage test, and anthropometric and serum parameters of nutritional status: albumin, prealbumin, transferrin, haemoglobin, lymphocyte count, iron, and ferritin.
Discussion The nutritional status of dependent patients has been little studied. This study allows us to know nutritional risk from different points of. Though recommended, participation of patients with specific expertise in therapeutic education programs TEP is rare. This work reports the experience of a national reference centre for rare systemic diseases. Involvement of "expert patients " EP has been planned from the development of a TEP dedicated to systemic lupus: patients ' roles and required expertise have been defined and linked to the pedagogical tools.
Such patients have been recruited during individual interviews and called to participate to specific pedagogical training. EP intervention have been evaluated by questionnaire to EP and health care providers.
asthma education intervention: Topics by xepimpthirsneca.gq
Three EP's functions have been identified: sharing experiences, giving "tips and tricks" and promoting dialogue. EP's interventions has been organised into a hierarchy from sharing to co-animation. For EP as well as for health care providers, EP's intervention seems beneficial visual scale scores of 7. Though difficult to organise, EP's intervention in TEP dedicated to rare systemic diseases seems useful and would earn to be increase. Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effects of an exercise education intervention on exercise behavior, depression and fatigue status of chronic kidney disease CKD patients.
The authors used the…. The effects of medication education and behavioral intervention on Chinese patients with epilepsy. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of medication education and behavioral intervention on Chinese patients with epilepsy and to compare the difference between them. A total of patients with epilepsy who did not to take their antiepileptic drugs AEDs more than once were randomly assigned to two intervention groups: the medication education group group I and the medication education with behavioral intervention group group II.
Group I was initially provided with medication education in the form of oral education and written materials, and this education was reinforced by monthly calls from the pharmacist over the next six months. The behavioral intervention provided to group II consisted of a modified medication schedule which was based on cue-dose training therapy. The outcomes that were evaluated both in the beginning and in the end of the study included adherence, which was measured using the four-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale MMAS-4 , the number of seizures, knowledge of AEDs, and the number of patients who missed a dose of their AEDs.
Differences within and between the groups were analyzed. After intervention , the adherence and knowledge of AEDs increased greatly in all patients , and the number of patients who had seizures or missed AEDs decreased. However, no significant differences were observed between groups I and II. The observed changes were group I vs group II, p value increased adherence: In addition, the percentage of patients who forgot to take their AEDs decreased to These findings clearly demonstrate that medication education and reinforced telephone calls from pharmacists can help to increase adherence to AEDs, the knowledge of patients regarding AEDs, and seizure control.
Patient -led training on patient safety: a pilot study to test the feasibility and acceptability of an educational intervention. Training in patient safety is an important element of medical education. Most educational interventions on patient safety training adopt a 'health-professional lens' with limited consideration on the impact of safety lapses on the patient and their families and little or no involvement of patients in the design or delivery of the training. This paper describes a pilot study to test the feasibility and acceptability of implementing a patient -led educational intervention to facilitate safety training amongst newly qualified doctors.
The intervention , which will be further tested in an NIHR-funded randomised controlled trial RCT , was successfully implemented into an existing training programme and found acceptance amongst the patients and trainees. The pilot study proved to be a useful step in refining the intervention for the RCT including identifying appropriate outcome measures and highlighting organisational issues. Nursing staff's communication modes in patient transfer before and after an educational intervention.
The objective was to explore and describe nursing staff's body awareness and communication in patient transfers and evaluate any changes made after an educational intervention to promote staff competence in guiding patients to move independently. In total, 63 nursing staff from two hospitals wrote weekly notes before and after the intervention. The topics were: A reflect on a transfer during the last week that you consider was good and one that was poor; B reflect on how your body felt during a good and a poor transfer.
The notes were analysed with content analysis. The results showed five different communication modes connected with nursing staff's physical and verbal communication. These communication modes changed after 1 year to a more verbal communication, focusing on the patient 's mobility.

The use of instructions indicated a new or different understanding of patient transfer, which may contribute to a development of nursing staff's competence. Therefore, verbal and bodily communication can have an integral part of training in patient transfer; furthermore, the educational design of such programmes is important to reach the goal of developing new understanding and enhancing nursing staff's competence in patient transfer. Effect of patient education and standard treatment guidelines on asthma control: an intervention trial.
Denial of having a chronic condition, poor knowledge of the disease process and lack of adherence to standard treatment are often considered to be important factors that increase morbidity in asthma. We evaluated the effect of standard treatment guidelines and asthma education programme on asthma control among patients enrolled from a referral health facility of Delhi in India. Fifty patients who visited the health facility first time for treatment of asthma were enrolled after confirming the diagnosis of asthma by symptoms and reversible spirometry.
Patients were interviewed at baseline using three researcher-administered questionnaires - quality of asthma management questionnaire, asthma control questionnaire ACQ and asthma knowledge questionnaire AKQ. All patients were given pharmacotherapy according to standard treatment guidelines. In addition, every alternate patient was also given a face-to-face educational intervention.
Patients were followed up at 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks. The paired t test was used to detect significant changes in various domains of asthma control.
The knowledge of asthma among patients and the care provided by previous health-care providers were found to be poor at baseline assessment. The application of standard treatment guidelines improved asthma control by the second week and the changes became significant by the fourth week, which persisted till the twelfth week p Standard treatment guidelines and asthma education improved asthma control. Effectiveness of an educational intervention and physical exercise on the functional capacity of patients on haemodialysis.
To describe the impact of a standard hospital educational intervention including active physical exercises on personal well-being, functional capacity and knowledge of the benefits of prescribed physical activity for patients undergoing haemodialysis. An uncontrolled, quasi-experimental, before-and-after study with repeated measures of response variables at 4, 8 and 12 weeks after participating in an educational and physical exercise hospital intervention.
It was performed at the Nephrology Unit at the Hospital Complex in Vic within september and december The patients ' well-being, functional capacity and knowledge were assessed. We included 68 After 12 weeks, the patients had better scores of personal well-being 2. All of the score differences were statistically significant P educational intervention and active exercise performed at hospital level improved the personal well-being, knowledge and functional capacity of patients on haemodialysis.
To evaluate the effectiveness of providing an educational intervention in primary care PC alongside a pharmacological treatment for insomnia. Single blinded non randomised clinical trial. All patients initiated treatment with lorazepam 1mg in the evenings and had four weekly 15 min visits plus a follow-up visit after another month. The IG received training for control of stimuli, sleep hygiene and respiration and relaxation techniques in the four visits. The CG had only non invasive measures taken. Mean change in PSQI to final visit and follow-up visit was: Twenty nine patients in GI and 17 in GC completed the trial.
Per protocol analysis showed similar results. The educational intervention in PC improves sleep quality and reduces the need of treatment with benzodiacepines. Differential effect of a patient-education transition intervention in adolescents with IBD vs. Patient education programs PEPs to improve disease management are part of standard and regular treatment in adolescents with diabetes. Generic PEPs have been developed in order to improve transition from child-centered to adolescent health services.
A 2-day transition workshop was oriented at improving psychosocial skills and addressed both generic as well as specific aspects of the condition. Transition competence and QoL were assessed at baseline and 6-month follow-up. Transition-oriented PEPs can have differential effects in different patient groups. However, this needs further longitudinal investigations. The 2-day workshop.

Many interventions for the treatment of low back pain exist, but the mechanisms through which such treatments work are not always clear. This situation is especially true for biopsychosocial interventions that incorporate several different components and methods of delivery. The study objective was to examine the indirect effects of the Cognitive Patient Education COPE intervention via illness perceptions, back pain myths, and pain catastrophizing on disability outcome. This study was a secondary analysis of the COPE randomized controlled trial.
Mediation analysis techniques were employed to examine the indirect effects of the COPE intervention via residualized change baseline - posttreatment in the 3 variables hypothesized to be targeted by the COPE intervention on posttreatment disability outcome.
sme.ltd.uk/map3.php Pain intensity at baseline, pain duration, clinician type, and a treatment-mediator interaction term were controlled for in the analysis. Preliminary analyses confirmed that changes in pain catastrophizing and illness perceptions not back pain myths were related to both allocation to the intervention arm and posttreatment disability score. However, the inclusion of an interaction term led to the indirect effects being significantly reduced, with the effects no longer being statistically significant.
