Occupational dermatitis is the second most common occupational disease in Europe, with a notable prevalence among healthcare workers-approximately 20% of whom are affected. However, these figures may be underestimated due to underreporting. Despite the presumed scale of the problem, there is no recent European data providing real numbers. This study seeks to address the knowledge gap regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on occupational dermatitis within the healthcare workers population. EPIDERMAPS is a retrospective cohort study that analyzes data from two specialized centers in the Paris region. The primary goal is to assess changes in the proportion of dermatology-allergology consultations among healthcare workers before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Secondary objectives include evaluating the pandemic's effect on occupational dermatoses incidences, attributed to increased PPE and hygiene products usage. The major focus will be on work-related allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, contact urticaria, acne, and rosacea. The latter objective is to identify new allergens or contributing factors. Participants include active healthcare workers aged 18 or older who sought consultations for dermatological or dermatology-allergology related motifs between March 15, 2017, and March 15, 2023. Exclusions apply for patients who have consulted for other than dermatology-allergology related motif and those opposing to participate. Data will be stored, anonymized, and analyzed using EasyMedStat. Data collection is scheduled between March and December 2024. This research aims to offer insights into COVID-19's dermatologic and allergic effects on healthcare professionals, informing future preventive measures and enhanced care strategies.
This research challenges our current approach to fee-for-service palliative care and is significant because it will advance the fields of palliative and person-centered care, clinical practice, public policy, and health care financing. However, the most important effect will be on seriously ill patients and their families through increased access to palliative care outside of hospitals, enhanced palliative continuity across health settings, and improved affordability via reformed payment structures. Nation-wide replication of reimbursable HBCP models is anticipated.
Randomized, controlled study of long-term maintenance Cereset Research after an initial 4-session intervention bolus versus usual care control following an initial 4-session intervention bolus.
Alcohol and other drug use is common among people living with HIV in South Africa and is associated with worse engagement in HIV care. There is evidence that healthcare workers in this setting, including community health workers who play a central role in re-engaging patients back into HIV care, exhibit stigmatizing behaviors towards HIV patients who use substances. In general, healthcare worker stigma towards alcohol and other drug use is associated with poorer treatment of patients who use substances, and in this setting, healthcare worker stigma towards alcohol and other drug use has been associated with worse patient engagement in HIV care. In the United States, peer recovery coaches (PRCs), who are trained individuals with lived substance use recovery experience, have helped patients who use substances engage in healthcare. Theoretically, integrating a PRC onto a healthcare team also increases healthcare worker contact with a person with substance use experience, which may be associated with lower stigma. Yet, a PRC model has not yet been tested in South African HIV care. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop and pilot a PRC model integrated into community-based primary care teams providing HIV services in South Africa. The study aims to compare a healthcare team with a PRC to a team without a PRC. The investigators will primarily assess the implementation of this PRC model and rates of patient re-engagement in care.
This study is based on the implementation of the method named "Learning-from-excellence", see methodology www.learningfromexcellence.com. The project is a longitudinal cohort study based on data from both qualitative and quantitative data, presented in two different research articles, one qualitative and one quantitative, using : - an electronic questionnaire on "work-engagement, team collaboration and patient safety climate" before and after implementing Learning from Excellence. - focus group interviews to explore experiences with the method of Learning from excellence from the view of healthcare professionals.
Purpose of Research: This study; It will be done in order to determine the psychological effects of the Covid-19 pandemic process on the health personnel working in the filiation team and to examine the possible effects in depth. This research was planned as a mixed methods research. Research Questions 1. What are the psychological effects of the pandemic process on the healthcare personnel working in the filiation team? 2. Do the socio-demographic characteristics of the healthcare personnel working in the injection team affect their psychological status? 3. What are the opinions of the health personnel working in the filtering team about the psychological effects of the pandemic?
The current study will be a randomized controlled trial (RCT) investigating an adapted online Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program versus daily online self-help mindfulness exercises, in preventing incident/prevalent psychopathology in healthcare workers allocated to work with COVID-19 patients. Outcome measures include depression, anxiety, somatoform symptoms, post-traumatic stress, insomnia, substance abuse, post-traumatic growth and positive mental health. The study also aims to explore possible working mechanisms such as perseverative thinking, mindfulness skills and self-compassion. The study will have a follow-up duration of 7 months from baseline.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of Cereset Research to improve the symptoms of stress in healthcare workers in an open label, waitlist controlled pilot clinical trial, during the period of COVID-19.
The aim of this study is to apply serology testing methods for SARS-CoV2 antibodies in samples collected from HCWs in an acute hospital. This will enable the identification of those who are protected and non-infectious for SARS-CoV2 and those who are seronegative and therefore potentially susceptible and infectious on patient contact. Prospective testing will provide data on the acquisition of SARS-CoV2 infections among HCWs and associated risk factors for transmission during a pandemic at an acute care hospital facility in the capital region of Denmark. Hypothesis: Serial seroconversion measurements in hospital employees improve the organization of the clinical treatment and care during the COVID-19 pandemic at Nordsjællands Hospital and Nykøbing Falster County Hospital.
The investigators will follow a single prospective cohort of 50 Health Care Workers in the Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires (Argentina) from May 15th to August 31st 2020 using antibody testing for SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG at baseline and every 2 weeks in order to assess the incidence of COVID-19, the prevalence of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies (IgM and IgG) and incidence of reinfection or reactivations of previous COVID-19 using viral gene sequencing in this cohort.
