Increasing quality of life and improving hand functions are very substantial treatment goals for physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Trunk control is important for these parameters in children with hemiparetic and diparetic Cerebral Palsy.
Rationale: The rate of postoperative complications after high-risk surgery remains high despite recent advances in perioperative management. There is a lack of objective and reliable information that can be used for risk stratification and to guide treatment decisions. Objective: To describe the perioperative biomarker response in surgical patients with and without a postoperative complication and construct a preoperative and postoperative prediction model for postoperative complications. To systematically collect perioperative blood samples and clinical data in high-risk surgical patients for the development en analysis of biomarkers. Study design: Multicenter, prospective, observational study. Study population: 4819 patients undergoing elective cardiac, colorectal, vascular and lung surgery. Intervention (if applicable): Not applicable. Main study parameters/endpoints: Main study parameters are levels of PCT, CRPhs, IL-6, GDF-15, sFLT, NT-proBNP, cTNThs, CysC and NGAL. Main study endpoint is the occurrence of a major postoperative complication which is defined as a surgical site infection, pneumonia, sepsis, acute kidney injury, major adverse cardiovascular events or death within 30 days of surgery. Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: In each patient five blood samples will be drawn for analysis. Most of the blood samples are drawn simultaneously with routine perioperative laboratory testing, which is common in this study population. In case a patient is admitted to the Intensive Care Unit blood samples will be collected using an arterial line. There are no direct risks or benefits for patients included in the study.
The present prospective cohort study aims to assess factors associated with of one-year health-related quality of life and physical, cognitive and mental health outcomes among adult patients with mild COVID-19. Adult patients with symptomatic COVID-19 not requiring hospitalization will be followed through structured and centralized telephone interviews performed at 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after enrollment.
This randomized control trial aims to explore a data-driven, proactive approach to identifying patients at greatest risk during the pandemic, and assess the impact of an embedded System Navigator in a primary health care setting. The System Navigator works one-on-one with patients to identify and provide support to their biological, psychological and social needs (e.g. income, housing, food security). Investigators are doing this study to find out whether proactive identification of vulnerable patients and linking to a System Navigator leads to reduction in emotional distress associated with managing complex health conditions and unmet social needs during COVID-19, compared to usual care. Investigators will involve approximately 180 patients from primary care clinics that are a part of the University of Toronto Practice-Based Research Network (UTOPIAN). The information from this study will be used to help us understand how proactive engagement within a primary health setting can help to improve the health of patients during COVID-19, and beyond.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a movement and posture disorder accompanied by sensory, perception, cognition, communication and behavioral disorders that cause activity limitations by causing various non-progressive disorders of the fetal or infant brain. Spastic CP, according to the affected area in the body; It is classified as hemiparetic, diparetic and is observed most frequently. Diparetic CP, on the other hand, is characterized by significant spasticity in the pelvis and lower extremities, mild hypertonus or spasticity in the upper extremities, and incoordination, mostly involving the lower extremities and some upper extremities.Although lower extremity involvement is observed in different degrees in children with diparetic CP, studies showing how upper extremity and hand functions are affected are insufficient.The aim of this study is to compare the effect of upper extremity functional skills on quality of life and participation levels in children with diparetic CP with their healthy peers.
Analysis of outcomes and adverse events of patients undergoing radiation therapy. Quality control using data base of patient records 2000-2025
This research will be carried out to determine the effect of walking exercises performed using a behavioral change model on symptom severity and quality of life in patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
The purpose of this study is to test the adapted protocol, CAPABLE Family which builds upon the evidenced based CAPABLE program to address older adults with co-occurring physical disability and mild cognitive impairment or early stage dementia and the older adults' caregivers. It will consist of two phases - an open label pilot and waitlist control trial.
Experimental open-label randomized clinical trial to determine the effect of virtual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) on the quality of life of patients with HIV, COVID-19 and anxiety or depression. It will be carried out at the hospital for 6 months, where people over 18 years of age with HIV from the infectious disease service will participate. In the study, patients will be randomized 1:1 in an intervention group, who will receive eight sessions of virtual CBT by 02 psychotherapists, and a control group. Additionally, patients will be consulted about the participation of at least one adult family member or caregiver in the study, if the patient and the family member agree, the family member or caregiver will enter the study. The informed consent process will be conducted by telephone, during the call the recruiting staff will read the consent document and the participant (patient and family member or caregiver) will give their consent by answering affirmatively to the questions asked at the end of the document. The main objective will be evaluated by comparing the quality of life measurement at three months with the baseline measurement, as well as the variation of anxiety and depression scores.
There are few published data on the benefit of Enhanced recovery program in radical prostatectomy in the management of localized prostate cancer. All the studies available on the subject are retrospective (1-3). This randomized comparative study is proposed in order to compare in a homogeneous population (place and time) the interest of RAAC specifically in this surgery.
