Variation in GP decisions on antihypertensive treatment in oldest-old and frail individuals across 29 countries by Sven Streit( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background: In oldest-old patients (>80), few trials showed efficacy of treating hypertension and they included mostly the healthiest elderly. The resulting lack of knowledge has led to inconsistent guidelines, mainly based on systolic blood pressure (SBP), cardiovascular disease (CVD) but not on frailty despite the high prevalence in oldest- old. This may lead to variation how General Practitioners (GPs) treat hypertension. Our aim was to investigate treatment variation of GPs in oldest-olds across countries and to identify the role of frailty in that decision. Methods: Using a survey, we compared treatment decisions in cases of oldest-old varying in SBP, CVD, and frailty. GPs were asked if they would start antihypertensive treatment in each case. In 2016, we invited GPs in Europe, Brazil, Israel, and New Zealand. We compared the percentage of cases that would be treated per countries. A logistic mixed-effects model was used to derive odds ratio (OR) for frailty with 95% confidence intervals (CI), adjusted for SBP, CVD, and GP characteristics (sex, location and prevalence of oldest-old per GP office, and years of experience). The mixed-effects model was used to account for the multiple assessments per GP. Results: The 29 countries yielded 2543 participating GPs: 52% were female, 51% located in a city, 71% reported a high prevalence of oldest-old in their offices, 38% and had >20 years of experience. Across countries, considerable variation was found in the decision to start antihypertensive treatment in the oldest-old ranging from 34 to 88%. In 24/29 (83%) countries, frailty was associated with GPs % decision not to start treatment even after adjustment for SBP, CVD, and GP characteristics (OR 0.53, 95%CI 0.48 % 0.59; ORs per country 0.11 % 1.78). Conclusions: Across countries, we found considerable variation in starting antihypertensive medication in oldest- old. The frail oldest-old had an odds ratio of 0.53 of receiving antihypertensive treatment. Future hypertension trials should also include frail patients to acquire evidence on the efficacy of antihypertensive treatment in oldest-old patients with frailty, with the aim to get evidence-based data for clinical decision-making

Compassionate care provision an immense need during the refugee crisis : essons learned from a European capacity-building project( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: The refugee crisis has resulted in massive waves of migration towards Europe. Besides sufficient and appropriatehealthcareservices,thesevulnerablepopulatio ns need kindness, respect, acceptance, empathy, and attention to basic needs. Healthcare professionals ought to have a respe ctfulandcompassionateapproachtosafeguardthedignity and interests of the people they care for. Aim: The overall aim of the European Refugees-Human Moveme nt and Advisory Network (EUR-HUMAN) project was to provide good and affordable, comprehensive, person-centred, integrated and compassionate care for all ages and all ailments, taking into account the transcultural settings and the needs, wishes and expectations of the newly arriving refugees. This paper reports on findings to help establish what the nature of compassionate care for refugees consists of and implies and how its implementation could be promoted across European countries and healthcare settings. Methods: A two-day Expert Consensus Meeting (ECM) took place in order to reach consensus in different thematic areas including cultural issues in health care, continuity of care, information and health promotion, health assessment, mental health, mother and child care, infectious diseases, and vaccination coverage. Results: Notably, all experts stressed the need to address mental health problems. Interactions and input received during the meeting highlighted the urgent need for compassionate care for these vulnerable populations. Additionally, the needs reported by refugees and other migrants helped identify a serious gap in terms of compassionate attitudes exhibited by healthcare workers. Linguistic and cultural barriers exacerbate the effect of the lack of compassion, especially where healthcare information and psychological support are urgently needed but an appropriate supportive framework is missing. Conclusions: This European collaborative capacity-building project attempts to develop a long-term strategy to tackle this issue, focusing in particular on the design and deliver y of appropriate person-centred and compassionate-based primary healthcare (PHC) services. A list of recommendati ons developed by this consensus panel may facilitate the design and implementation of similar capacity-building efforts, as wel l as the design of educational intervention programmers for a person-centred and compassionate PHC for vulnerable populations
