RESUMO

Este artigo, de caráter interdisciplinar, tem como objetivo articular questões da diversidade sociocultural com o direito à comunicação e à saúde e a estratégias de reconhecimentos identitários. Para isso, propomos uma análise de conteúdo, de abordagem qualitativa, da comunicação produzida pela Equipe de Base Warmis ­ Convergências das Culturas sobre o caso que ficou conhecido como Projeto pró-cesárea no SUS ou PL 435/2019, comparando-a ainda com matérias veiculadas sobre o tema na mídia tradicional comercial e em notas e comunicados oficiais de instituições formais de classe profissional envolvidas com a questão. Como recurso teórico-metodológico, utilizamos os conceitos de interculturalismo e comunicação intercultural. Entre os principais resultados, destacamos que processos comunicacionais, quando entendidos não somente a partir de seu alcance instrumental, mas, em seu sentido de vinculação sociocultural, interação simbólica e produção subjetiva, podem ter caráter mobilizador coletivo e de reconhecimento identitário visando, muitas vezes, a transformação da realidade social, ainda que essa signifique uma coexistência sociocultural capaz de ser negociada.


This interdisciplinary article aims to articulate issues of sociocultural diversity with the right to communication and health and identity recognition strategies. For this, we propose a qualitative content analysis about the communication produced by the Warmis Base Team ­ Convergences of Cultures on the case known as the Pro-cesarean project in SUS or PL 435/2019, comparing it with articles published about the theme in the traditional commercial media and in formal professional class institutions official notes involved with the case. As a theoretical-methodological resource, we use the interculturalism concept and intercultural communication. Among the main results, we highlight that communicational processes, when understood not only from their instrumental reach, but, in their sense of sociocultural attachment, symbolic interaction and subjective production, can have collective mobilizing character and identity recognition, often aiming at the transformation of social reality, even if it means a sociocultural coexistence able of being negotiated.

RESUMO

A Política de Saúde Integral da População Negra reiterou a urgência de qualificação dos processos educativos no Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS) em prol da superação do racismo institucional. A revisão integrativa, apresentada neste artigo, analisou as concepções teóricas e as práticas educativas em estudos dirigidos à saúde da população negra. Foram utilizadas as bases de dados da Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde (BVS); a Scientific Eletronic Library Online (SciELO); a ferramenta de pesquisa na web Google Scholar e o acervo darevista da Associação Brasileira de Pesquisadores/as Negros/as, a Revista da ABPN. A produção na temática é heterogênea, dispersa entre periódicos das áreas da educação, educação em saúde e interdisciplinar. Há vanguardismo da enfermagem e forte presença de estudos com povos e comunidades tradicionais. Nota-se dificuldade de interpenetração de referenciais teóricos e pedagógicos do campo da educação na sustentação das práticas educativas de saúde. Sugerem-se a cooperação e a integração científica entre esses campos visando ao protagonismo do sujeito negro nos processos de cuidado.


The Política de Saúde Integral da População Negra (Integral Health Policy of the Black Population) reiterated the urgency of qualifying educational processes in the Unified Health System (SUS ­ Sistema Único de Saúde) in order to overcome institutional racism. The integrative review presented in this article analyzed the theoretical conceptions and the educational practices in studies directed to the health of the black population. The databases of the Virtual Health Library (VHL); the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO); the web search engine Google Scholar and the collection of the Revista da ABPN that is the magazine of the Associação Brasileira de Pesquisadores/as Negros/as (Brazilian Association of Black Researchers) were examined. The production in this thematic is heterogeneous, dispersed in periodicals of the areas of education, health education and interdisciplinary. When the matter is the health of black population, the nursing is an avantgarde profession carrying out a number of studies with traditional peoples and communities. It was noted the difficulty of interpenetration of theoretical and pedagogical references of the field of education in support of educational health practices. We suggest the cooperation and the scientific integration between these fields aiming at the protagonism of the black population in the process of care.

RESUMO

Doctoral training has increasingly become the requirement for faculty in institutions of higher learning in Africa. Africa, however, still lacks sufficient capacity to conduct research, with just 1.4% of all published research authored by African researchers. Similarly, women in Sub-Saharan Africa only constitute 30% of the continent's researchers, and correspondingly publish little research. Challenging these gendered inequities requires a gender responsive doctoral program that caters for women's gender roles that likely affect their enrollment in, and completion of, doctoral programs. In this article, we describe a public and population health multidisciplinary doctoral training program - CARTA and its approach to supporting women. This has resulted in women's enrollment in the program equaling men's and similar throughput rates. CARTA has achieved this by meeting women's practical needs around childbearing and childrearing and we argue that this has produced some outcomes that challenge gender norms, such as fathers being child minders in support of their wives and creating visible female role models.

RESUMO

PACE programs (Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) across the United States provide a valuable service to older adults with a significant nursing need by allowing them to remain safely living in the community for as long as possible through the provision of extensive, community-based health care services to its participants. Clinical pharmacists have previously been underutilized in PACE, but ample opportunity exists to provide meaningful pharmacy services within PACE programs. Pharmacists working in PACE programs can expect to significantly impact clinical outcomes, health care expenditures, and patient advocacy.

RESUMO

There is evidence on interrelationships between several dental and chronic diseases. However, dentists and general practitioners often lack information when treating such multimorbid patients. Engagement of the patient in the decision making process may help to fill this gap and improve intersectoral care. The Dent@Prevent project therefore aims to develop a mobile application that can be used by patients to report information about their health status for interdisciplinary care. In this paper, the user interface concept and evaluation of the prototype of this mobile application is presented.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Cooperative interdisciplinary patient care is a modern healthcare necessity. While various medical and surgical disciplines have independent educational requirements, a system-wide simulation-based curriculum composed of different disciplines provides a unique forum to observe the effect of interdisciplinary simulation-based education (IDSE). Our hypothesis: IDSE positively affects intern outlook and attitudes towards other medical disciplines. METHODS: Using an established interdisciplinary simulation curriculum designed for first year interns, we explored the relative effect of IDSE on between-discipline intern attitudes in a convergent, parallel, mixed-methods study. Data sources included novel pre-post anonymous survey measurements (10-point Likert scale), focus groups, direct observations, and reflective field notes. This quasi-experimental pilot study was conducted at an academic, tertiary care medical center with two cohorts of interns: one exposed to IDSE and one exposed to an independent within-discipline simulation curriculum. RESULTS: IDSE exposed interns demonstrated statistically significant improvements when comparing mean pre-test and post-test score differences in five of seven areas: perceived interdisciplinary collegiality ([Formula: see text] = 0.855; p = 0.0002), respect (x̅ = 0.436; p = 0.0312), work interactions ([Formula: see text] = 0.691; p = 0.0069), perceived interdisciplinary attitudes (x̅ = 0.764; p = 0.0031), and comfort in interdisciplinary learning (x̅ = 1.164; p < 0.0001). There were no changes in interdisciplinary viewpoints observed among non-IDSE interns. IDSE interns were comfortable when learning with interns of different disciplines and believed others viewed their discipline positively compared to non-IDSE interns. Qualitative data uncovered the following themes related to the impact of IDSE including: 1) Relationship building, 2) Communication openness, 3) Attitude shifting, and 4) Enhanced learner experience. CONCLUSIONS: IDSE positively influenced intern outlook on and attitudes towards other medical disciplines. This unique learning environment provided interns an opportunity to learn clinical case management while learning about, from, and with each other; subsequently breaking traditional discipline-specific stereotypes and improving interdisciplinary relations. Future explicit focus on IDSE offers opportunity to improve interdisciplinary interactions and patient care.

RESUMO

The roots of interdisciplinary of medical informatics are sought through the analysis of the themes approached by the pioneers of this field. The data included in the study comes mostly from "personal stories" of European these scientists collected by IMIA WG History as well as from some biographical notes. Most researchers came from the technical-scientific field, but the double specialization was very common. The proportions of the main topic approaches are discussed. The roots of medical informatics interdisciplinary were formed during the pioneering period, when most major concepts and chapters of medical informatics took contour.

RESUMO

The treatment of multimorbid patients confronts physicians with special challenges. Complex disease correlations, insufficient evidence, lack of interdisciplinary guidelines, limited communication between physicians of different specialties, etc. complicate the treatment. To improve the present care situation for multimorbid patients we describe a development approach for an interdisciplinary Electronic Health Record (EHR). As part of the Dent@Prevent project, which aims to improve the intersectoral care of patients with correlating dental and chronic systemic diseases, the proposed EHR will first be tested in the field of dentistry and general medicine. Based on the HL7 FHIR standard the proposed EHR uses a modern three-tier (client-server) architecture. Crucial element of the EHR is a knowledge base, which comprises components for mapping diseases with their complex correlations, integrates patient reported parameters and classifies information in evidence levels. Using the FHIR standard the described elements need to be transferred into the data schema of FHIR resources. The development of an EHR to improve the treatment of multimorbid patients needs to be tailored to the specific needs of multimorbid patients. An interdisciplinary EHR offers the potential to facilitate communication between patients and physicians and provide them with evidence-based information on disease correlations. The next step is to test the practical implementation and applicability for further interdisciplinary disease correlations.

RESUMO

To assess the impact of multidisciplinary rounds (MDR) on 30-day readmissions and length of stay in hospitalized patients with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure in a community teaching hospital.Patients with primary admission diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF) were included. A before and after retrospective study was conducted once the intervention was implemented in 2014. The before and after study periods were each of 1-year duration and included 181 and 151 patients, respectively. Our multidisciplinary heart failure rounding team consisted of a staff cardiologist, case manager, pharmacist, social worker, and a nutritionist.The mean length of stay decreased from 5.7 days to 5 days, and 30-day readmissions decreased from 27.6% to 17.22% (P-value .026) after implementation of the multidisciplinary rounding. We observed a significant decrease of readmissions in ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) (from 33.61% to 14.01%; P-value .007) and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) (from 31.34% to 16.05%; P-value .028) patients. There was an increase in the percentage of patients hospitalized with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and, in particular, women patients with heart failure.Implementation of MDR program on CHF patients resulted in significant decrease in both readmission rate and length of stay in our hospital.

RESUMO

The ketogenic diet is an established, effective and well-tolerated treatment in refractory epilepsy. This paper provides practical information on the administration of ketogenic diet. It goes over the standardized protocols and the new ones that allow to broaden the scope regarding the clinical management of the ketogenic diet. It addresses issues such as the implementation, counseling and follow-up as well as the application and how to proceed in special situations such as anesthesia or acute illness. Finally, the aim of this paper is to highlight the relevance of the multidisciplinary teamwork and the family support throughout this laborious but interesting treatment.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Results of a questionnaire-based study to evaluate smart infusion pump end users' perceptions and understanding of the drug library update process are reported. METHODS: The Indianapolis Coalition for Patient Safety, Inc., in partnership with the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering, conducted a 33-item electronic, cross-sectional survey across 5 Indiana health systems from May through November 2017. Interdisciplinary participants identified for survey distribution included nurses, pharmacists, biomedical engineers, administrators, and medication safety officers. The survey assessed the following domains: patient safety, the drug library update process, knowledge of drug libraries and the update process, and end-user perceptions. RESULTS: A total of 778 submitted surveys were included in the data analysis, with a large majority of responses (90.2%) provided by nurses. The use of drug libraries for ensuring patient safety was deemed extremely important or important by 88% of respondents, but 36% indicated that they were unsure of whether drug libraries are updated on a routine basis in their health system. Approximately two-thirds agreed that the current update process improves quality of care (65.0%) and patient safety (68.1%). Moreover, 53.3% agreed that the current drug library update process was effective. However, less than 10% responded correctly when asked about the steps required to update the drug library. Furthermore, only 18% correctly indicated that when a pump is on it may not necessarily contain the most up-to-date version of the drug library. CONCLUSION: A survey of 5 health systems in Indianapolis identified several end-user knowledge gaps related to smart pump drug library updates. The results suggest that these gaps were most likely due to a combination of the 2-step update process and the fact that the current drug library version is not easy to find and/or user-friendly and it is unclear when an update is pending.

RESUMO

Resumo Finalizados, em 2018, 10 anos do início dos cursos de graduação em saúde coletiva no Brasil, muito se tem discutido sobre a atuação do sanitarista no mundo do trabalho e seu papel entre as diversas profissões da saúde historicamente reconhecidas. Muitas das possibilidades de atuação estão em construção nos espaços de estágio obrigatório nos currículos das universidades. Partindo desse solo, entendemos que os campos de estágio podem ser vistos como espaços propícios para a análise do perfil dos sanitaristas que estão sendo formados e a maneira como as diferentes áreas que fazem parte da saúde coletiva estabelecem os diálogos necessários para a formação do perfil desejado, eminentemente multidisciplinar. A partir de experiências dos autores na supervisão de estágios em saúde coletiva, o artigo debaterá os embates entre as áreas do campo no momento da construção da prática profissional. De que maneiras suas lentes moldam os campos e olhares disparados em ambientes de prática? Assim, inspirados no clássico Os argonautas do Pacífico ocidental, de Malinowski, a ideia é refletir sobre a atuação do sanitarista, especialmente o que e como fazem, bem como sobre o que dizem e pensam sobre o que fazem. Ao final, discorremos sobre a prática da própria saúde coletiva.


Abstract In 2018, ten years after undergraduate courses in collective health have begun being offered in Brazil, there has been much discussion about the health worker's performance in the work environment and their role among the various historically recognized health professions. Many of the possible actions are being developed in the obligatory internships present in the universities' curricula. From this point, we understand that the internships can be seen as favorable places for the analysis of the profile of the public health workers who are graduating and the way in which the different areas that are part of collective health establish the necessary dialogue to form the desired profile, eminently multidisciplinary. Based on the authors' experiences in the supervision of internships in collective health, the article will discuss the conflicts between the field's areas during the establishment of the professional practice. In which ways do its lenses shape the field and the perspectives borne in practice environments? In this sense, inspired by the classic Argonauts of the Western Pacific, by Malinowski, we aim at reflecting on the public health workers' role, what it entails and how it is performed, as well as about what workers say and think about what they do. Finally, we discuss the practice of Collective Health itself.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The ward round is a key element in everyday hospital inpatient care irrespective of the medical speciality. The underperformance in conducting ward rounds of junior clinicians has already been described. Therefore, necessary skills and competences of clinicians need to be defined, taught and delivered for curricular instruction. In addition to published data on ward round competences in internal medicine this study aims to determine the common competences for surgical and psychiatric ward rounds in order to find differences depending on the speciality. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews with surgical (N = 30) and psychiatric ward staff (N = 30) of a university hospital and five community hospitals were conducted. Competences necessary for performing ward rounds as well as structural aspects were identified by systematic content analysis and frequency analysis, supported by adequate statistics. RESULTS: Relevant competences for both fields are: collaborative clinical reasoning, communication with the patient and the team, organization, teamwork, management of difficult situations, self-management, error-management, teaching, empathy, nonverbal communication, patient-management and professionalism. Clinical skills were mentioned more often in surgical interviews, while nonverbal communication was described more often in psychiatric interviews. Empathy and communication with the team were more frequently attributed to psychiatric residents. CONCLUSION: The competences which were identified as necessary for conducting a ward round in surgery and psychiatry are similar and correspond to previously reported competences in internal medicine. Clinical skills are of greater importance in surgery than in psychiatry. Concerning empathy and nonverbal communication, further research is needed to determine whether they are of minor importance in surgery or whether there is a lack of awareness of these competences.

RESUMO

An expanded investment in interdisciplinary research has prompted greater demands to integrate knowledge across disciplinary boundaries. Vision and Change similarly made interdisciplinary expectations a key competency for undergraduate biology majors; however, we are not yet synchronized on the meaning of interdisciplinarity, making this benchmark difficult to meet and assess. Here, we discuss aspects of interdisciplinarity through a historical lens and address various institutional barriers to interdisciplinary work. In an effort to forge a unified path forward, we provide a working definition of interdisciplinary science derived from both the perspectives of science faculty members and scientific organizations. We leveraged the existing literature and our proposed definition to build a conceptual model for an Interdisciplinary Science Framework to be used as a guide for developing and assessing interdisciplinary efforts in undergraduate science education. We believe this will provide a foundation from which the community can develop learning outcomes, activities, and measurements to help students meet the Vision and Change core competency of "tapping into the interdisciplinary nature of science."

RESUMO

The number of Americans ages 65 and older is projected to more than double over the next four decades and to equal nearly one-fourth of the entire population by 2060. Recognizing that the health care workforce in the United States is not sufficiently prepared to meet the care needs of this growing population, the National Academy of Medicine has recommended curricular enhancements for health professional educational programs. To meet this challenge, the University of South Florida College of Nursing applied curriculum mapping principles and concepts to examine and align Family Nurse Practitioner and Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program curricula for congruence with Partnership for Health in Aging multidisciplinary geriatric competencies. Through this process, we developed a geriatric-specific curriculum map and threaded geriatric-specific content, learning experiences, and learning assessment strategies to promote attainment of all 23 competencies. Given the growing role that nurse practitioners are projected to play in the delivery of primary care for older adults in the future, it is imperative that colleges and schools of nursing provide students with learning experiences to support attainment of the knowledge and skills graduates will need to care for older adults in practice. The techniques and strategies described here represent our approach.
