Healthcare workload has emerged as an important metric associated with poor outcomes. To measure workload, studies have used bed occupancy as a surrogate. However, few studies have examined frontline clinician workload and outcomes.
“We tried very hard, my daughter and I, to have a daughter-father relationship, not a daughter-doctor relationship,” said Dr. Michael Weiner on this episode of the “CURE® Talks Cancer” podcast, in which he discussed his career, his own cancer journey and his daughter's diagnosis.
There are a lot of urgent care clinics all over the country. But few of them, to my knowledge, also operate as regular primary care clinics. But that is exactly what is happening today in the Houston, Texas area with the emergence of Next Level Medical. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense to leverage all the facilities needed for a primary care clinic - exam rooms, physicians, etc. and use it to deliver regular and sometimes non-urgent care. We've discussed free standing ERs before that lower the cost of care with transparency so this seems like the next logical step with urgent care. We have also discussed pediatric urgent care clinics but those never had the component of doubling as primary care. What is Urgent Care? Probably the most puzzling questions you can ask even someone who works in health care is: What is the difference between urgent care and emergency care? The answer is that it depends which is why you really need a better triage system that people (patients) can access before then head across town to either the ER or UC clinic. It's this triage that is probably the most important way to keep ER visit costs low and less frequent. This is one of the services offered by Next Level Medical to their members. Why Urgent Care Membership? At first, it seems strange that one would establish any sort of membership status with an urgent care clinic. But Next Level has made it work by basically selling it as a one stop primary care clinic. Or a primary care clinic on steroids that comes equipped with supplies for taking care of fractures, lacerations, laboratory studies, and imaging. And if you have the same staff working a regular schedule you can get physician continuity for patients making well care a very achievable goal. Employers like the flexibility as it provides the primary care for their employees with convenience since there are clinics all over town. Additionally, the clinics can care for their employees who might get injured either at home or work. This added benefit means a whole lot less in expensive ER care and probably healthier employees since their primary care is taken care of without all the copays and hidden costs that keep lots of hourly employees from staying on top of their chronic conditions. Doctors Like the Schedule Doctors looking to become employed usually have to make a lot of concessions. First in their autonomy and second in the lack of control over their schedule. The amount of work they take home or 'unpaid' time can be large at times making a forty hour a week job quickly turn into 50 or 60. This is where Next Level can offer doctors the opportunity to truly do shift work, have a regular patient panel, but not take home their work and let the sophisticated call center triage their patients overnight.

This conversation with Marjorie Gloff, MD and Renee Robinson, DNP, APRN makes me convinced that the expression "Preparation is half the battle won" must have been coined with the idea of perioperative medicine and perioperative surgical home (PSH) in mind! They are the co-directors of the Center for Perioperative Medicine and Medicine in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. In this episode, they share how to desilo the care of pediatric patients especially around the perioperative period, how an informal conversation triggered a grassroots level effort which subsequently resulted in a well-organized multidisciplinary team that provides comprehensive, coordinated and team based care for children in need of surgical procedures, developed a comprehensive screening tool or the PSH. They also share the steps involved in the development of periop medicine and PSH programs that employs a biopsychosocial model to optimize systems and individualized best practices in the care of a complex child with multiple and/or complex needs. Takeaways In This Episode What perioperative medicine entails and how it fits into their roles Healthcare professionals that form their perioperative surgical home-based team The minimum elements of perioperative surgical home that can be incorporated by anyone in any setting to provide optimal perioperative outcomes Components of a perioperative surgical home Objective criteria to determine if a child patient's optimized health Diagnoses and procedures that lend themselves to this kind of care model How they determine what role each member of their team plays Elements of their program and the steps they took to develop their program and educate their fellow peers Why should a PSH model be considered and the expenses related to such a program Standardization vs. individualized care in perioperative medicine Distinction between PSH, perioperative medicine and Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) models.

Chronic pain is often overlooked, and when it comes to children, it is even more so. The continued neglect of children's pain affects the ability to truly evaluate the extent of the problem and challenges these kids and their families face. The United States Pain Foundation, a pain advocacy organization, conducted a survey to assess how children with a pain diagnosis and their families experience chronic pain, what challenges and barriers they face and what they hope for in their pain care. In this episode, I'm joined by Nicole Hemmenway, the current CEO of the US Pain Foundation and the Founder of the INvisible Project and Casey Cashman, Director of Fundraising and the Pediatric Pain Warrior Program part of the US Pain Foundation. They are strong advocates for pediatric pain, inspired by their own pain experiences. They discuss the findings of this survey, share their experiences with the pediatric pain patients and families that they support through their programs. They also share their hopes and some possible directions to address some of the challenges identified in this survey. As healthcare professionals and clinicians, these findings are eye opening and a call for action to collectively invoke change in the care of pediatric chronic pain. Takeaways In This Episode Chronic pain is frequently overlooked due to its subjective nature Why Ms. Hemmenway and Ms. Cashman got involved in the pediatric pain work, US Pain Foundation and the Pediatric Pain Warrior program The reason(s) that prompted this survey Survey findings How much focus should be on the number rating of the pain and how meaningful, helpful that is. Valuable way to assess and inquire about chronic pain and a patient's progress Psychological impact, extent of mental health issues including self-harm, suicidal thoughts, ideation and attempts amongst pediatric chronic pain patients Burden of disease on the family - financial and psychosocial What therapies do patients and families wish were emphasized more - (Hint: Medications were at the bottom of the wishlist!)

This week we review a recent work on the use of bivalirudin on outcomes of pediatric VAD patients. We speak with Dr. Caroline Carly Heyrend of Primary Children's Hospital in Utah about a recent work she co-authored on time in therapeutic range for this agent in children with VAD's. How does bivalirudin work differently than heparin and what are the theoretical benefits or disadvantages of this agent in comparison with unfractionated heparin? Why are thrombotic complications still common amongst those with pediatric VAD's even when anticoagulation is maintained appropriately? What are the factors at work that make safe anticoagulation so difficult in this complex and fragile group of patients? Dr. Heyrend provides the pharmacist's perspective this week.

Of the many different types of pediatric brain tumors some are noncancerous, or benign, and some are cancerous, or malignant. Treatment and chance of recovery, or prognosis, depend on the type of tumor, its location within the brain, whether it has spread, and your child's age and general health. Because new treatments and technologies are continually being developed, several options may be available at different points in treatment.On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Angela Mattke, a Mayo Clinic pediatrician and host of Ask The Mayo Mom, will discuss treatment options for brain tumors in children with guests Dr. Soumen Khatua and Dr. Jonathan Schwartz — both Mayo Clinic pediatric neuro-oncologists — and Dr. David Daniels, a Mayo Clinic pediatric neurosurgeon.

Jeremy has a conversation with Erin O'Hearn, co producer of the film Weediatrics; A Covert Medical Mission which follows the day to day lives of parents of children struggling with a host of medical challenges including autism and seizures, 2 of the most difficult conditions to care for because of the potential of physical harm.After covering the story as a television news journalist in Philadelphia, she was devastated to learn that many of these parents were risking prison time and losing their kids to child protective service to get access to medical cannabis specifically for these conditions because it wasn't legal for pediatric use in their state. The film follows these families showing the minute to minutes struggle, their travels across state lines to get the right cannabis compounds, and how they are using this medicine help their children and prevent the most devastating effects of their conditions. https://www.weediatricsthemovie.comSupport the show (http://patreon.com/highwaytohealth)
