Working with Older People | On-line information and registration with services: patterns of support for carers in England

Kirrina's insight:

Carers are increasingly expected to use websites as a way of gathering information about sources of support but councils vary in the extent to which their websites are informative and easy to navigate. Council information strategies need to consider those carers whose lack of computing skills and/or literacy in written English exclude them from using websites. Practitioners should seek feedback from carers about what information they have found useful.

Patients' and family members' views on patient-centered communication during cancer care - Mazor - 2013 -

Kirrina's insight:

The complexity of cancer care today suggests that efforts to improve communication must be multilevel, acknowledging and addressing patient, clinician, organizational and policy barriers, and facilitators. Measurement tools are needed to assess cancer patients' and family members' experiences with communication over the course of cancer care to provide meaningful, actionable feedback to those seeking to optimize their effectiveness in communicating with patients with cancer.

Potential negative consequences of non-consented switch of inhaled medications and devices in asthma patients- 2013 - International Journal of Clinical Practice | HL | Scoop.it
Kirrina's insight:

Asthma requires individually tailored and careful management to control and prevent symptoms and exacerbations. Selection of the most appropriate treatment is dependent on both the choice of drugs and inhaler device; however, financial pressures may result in patients being switched to alternative medications and devices in an attempt to reduce costs.

A comparative analysis of neurosurgical online education materials to assess patient comprehension

Americans have increasingly utilized the internet as a first-line resource for a variety of information, including healthcare-oriented materials. Therefore, these online resources should be written at a level the average American can understand. Patient education resources specifically written for and available to the public were downloaded from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons website and assessed for their level of readability using the Flesch Reading Ease, Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level, Simple Measure of Gobbledygook Grading, Coleman-Liau Index, and Gunning-Fog Index.

Physicians' Perspectives of Managing Tensions Around Dimensions of Effective Communication in the Emergency Department

Physicians' Perspectives of Managing Tensions Around Dimensions of Effective Communication in the Emergency Department | HL | Scoop.it

(2013). Physicians' Perspectives of Managing Tensions Around Dimensions of Effective Communication in the Emergency Department. Health Communication.

 

The purpose of this study was to explore emergency department (ED) physicians' perspectives of guidelines for effective communication. More specifically, the ways in which physicians manage the tensions among effective communication dimensions framed by relational dialectics theory are examined. This study used in-depth interviews with 17 ED physicians and 70 hours of observations to identify five dimensions of effective communication: efficiency, clarity/accuracy, relevance, comprehension, and rapport. Two communication tensions resulted from these dimensions: efficiency versus rapport and efficiency versus comprehension. In almost all instances, physicians chose efficient communication at the expense of comprehension or rapport. In addition, there was a tension between patient and physician perspectives of clarity and relevance that physicians tended to resolve by emphasizing what was relevant and clear from their own perspective. Implications for managing tensions in terms of efficiency and a physician-centered approach are discussed.

Taking Collective Action to Improve Patient-Provider Communication | HL | Scoop.it

There are many reasons for speech-language pathologists (SLPs), especially those who work in the area of augmentative and                     alternative communication (AAC), to take an active role in improving patient-provider communication. Effective patient-provider                     communication is fundamental to patient-centered care and correlates strongly with better patient outcomes, as well as increased                     patient safety and patient satisfaction.
