Network evaluation of an innovation platform in continuous quality improvement in Australian Indigenous primary healthcare

Frances Clare Cunningham, Boyd Alexander Potts, Shanthi Ann Ramanathan, Jodie Bailie, Roxanne Gwendalyn Bainbridge, Andrew Searles, Alison Frances Laycock & Ross Stewart Bailie
Abstract Background From 2014 to 2019, the Centre for Research Excellence in Integrated Quality Improvement (CRE-IQI) was evaluated as an innovation platform focusing on continuous quality improvement in Indigenous Australian primary healthcare. Although social network analysis (SNA) is a recognized method for evaluating the functioning, collaboration and effectiveness of innovation platforms, applied research is limited. This study applies SNA to evaluate the CRE-IQI’s functioning as an innovation platform. Methods Two surveys (2017, 2019) were conducted...

Poor collateral flow with severe hypoperfusion explains worse outcome in acute stroke patients with atrial fibrillation

Jianhong Yang, Yuefei Wu, Xiang Gao, Qing Shang, Yao Xu, Qing Han, Jichuan Li, Chushuang Chen, Andrew Bivard, Mark W Parsons & Longting Lin
Background:Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with poorer functional outcomes in acute stroke patients. It has been hypothesized that this is due to poor collateral recruitment.Aims:This study aimed to investigate the relationship between AF and collaterals with outcome in thrombectomy patients.Methods:This retrospective cohort study identified 1036 acute ischemic patients from the INternational Stroke Perfusion Imaging REgistry. The cohort was divided into two groups: 432 with AF and 604 without AF. Patients were stratified by collateral grades...

Rationale:The evidence base for acute post-stroke rehabilitation is inadequate and global guideline recommendations vary.Aim:To define optimal early mobility intervention regimens for ischemic stroke patients of mild and moderate severity.Hypotheses:Compared with a prespecified reference arm, the optimal dose regimen(s) will result in more participants experiencing little or no disability (mRS 0–2) at 3 months post-stroke (primary), fewer deaths at 3 months, fewer and less severe complications during the intervention period, faster recovery of unassisted walking, and...

Abstract Objective To compare colorectal cancer (CRC) incidences in carriers of pathogenic variants of the MMR genes in the PLSD and IMRC cohorts, of which only the former included mandatory colonoscopy surveillance for all participants. Methods CRC incidences were calculated in an intervention group comprising a cohort of confirmed carriers of pathogenic or likely pathogenic variants in mismatch repair genes (path_MMR) followed prospectively by the Prospective Lynch Syndrome Database (PLSD). All had colonoscopy surveillance, with...

Management of post-stroke fatigue: an Australian health professional survey

Stewart Blackwell, Gary Crowfoot, Julie Davey, Avril Drummond, Coralie English, Margaret Galloway, Gillian Mason & Dawn Simpson
Evidence for post-stroke fatigue management is limited. We aimed to explore how Australian health professionals assess and assist fatigue management. Our objectives were to identify fatigue assessment tools and interventions used, explore clinician’s confidence managing fatigue and explore whether management of post-stroke fatigue differs from management of fatigue related to other conditions. An online cross-sectional survey was completed by Australian health professionals (n = 60) providing services to people with fatigue. Analysis of open-ended questions...

Sarah Morton, Jennifer Hall, Claire Fitzsimons, Jessica Hall, Coralie English, Anne Forster, Rebecca Lawton, Anita Patel, Gillian Mead & David J. Clarke
Sedentary behaviour (SB) is associated with negative health outcomes and is prevalent post-stroke. This study explored SB after stroke from the perspective of stroke service staff. Qualitative mixed-methods study. Non-participant observations in two stroke services (England/Scotland) and semi-structured interviews with staff underpinned by the COM-B model of behaviour change. Observations were analysed thematically; interviews were analysed using the Framework approach. One hundred and thirty-two observation hours (October - December 2017), and 31 staff interviewed (January...

Heidi Janssen, Marie-Louise Bird, Julie Luker, Ben Sellar, Angela Berndt, Samantha Ashby, Annie McCluskey, Louise Ada, Jannette Blennerhassett, Julie Bernhardt & Neil J. Spratt
This study aimed to investigate rehabilitation staff perceptions of factors influencing stroke survivor activity outside of dedicated therapy time for the purpose of supporting successful translation of activity promoting interventions in a rehabilitation unit. Purposive sampling of multi-disciplinary teams from four rehabilitation units was performed, and semi-structured interviews were conducted by telephone, digitally audio-recorded and then transcribed verbatim. A stepped iterative process of thematic analysis was employed until data saturation was reached. All but one...

Greater muscle volume and muscle fat infiltrate in the deep cervical spine extensor muscles (multifidus with semispinalis cervicis) in individuals with chronic idiopathic neck pain compared to age and sex-matched asymptomatic controls: a cross-sectional study

Suzanne J Snodgrass, Peter Stanwell, Kenneth A. Weber, Samala Shepherd, Olivia Kennedy, Hannah J Thompson & James M Elliott
Abstract Muscle size and composition (muscle volume and muscle fat infiltrate [MFI]) may provide insight into possible mechanisms underpinning chronic idiopathic neck pain, a common condition with no definitive underlying pathology. In individuals with chronic idiopathic neck pain > 3 months and age- and sex-matched asymptomatic controls, muscle volumes of levator scapulae, multifidus including semispinalis cervicis (MFSS), semispinalis capitis, splenius capitis including splenius cervicis (SCSC), sternocleidomastoid and longus colli from C3 through T1 were quantified...

Health Experiences of Nurses during the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Mixed Methods Study

Melissa L. Harris, Anne McLeod & Marita G. Titler
This study characterizes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental and physical health of nurses. Qualitative data (collected using semi-structured interviews) were integrated with quantitative data (collected concurrently using the SF-12 Health Survey). Nurses (N = 30) compared their health prior to and during the first pandemic wave (March–May 2020). Interviews were analyzed thematically; descriptive statistics and t-tests compared pre-pandemic to current SF-12 scores. Qualitative findings demonstrated an impact on nurses’ mental health...
