Musculoskeletal (MSK) practitioners in primary care: an evaluation of a MSK core capabilities framework and review process.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) practitioners in primary care: an evaluation of a MSK core capabilities framework and review process. Educ Prim Care. 2019 Dec 03;:1-4 Authors: Locke R, Wilkinson E, Collier R, Harden B Abstract The General Practice Contract 2019/20 established first contact musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapists in primary care. This paper describes an evaluation exploring the feasibility of using the MSK Core Capabilities Framework and a peer review process to evidence capability. It discusses how this process may be developed to ensure MSK practitioners are able to evidence the level of practice required within the complex environment of primary care. MSK practitioners were supported to evidence their capabilities against the MSK Framework. Twenty-two participants took part in the evaluation of this intervention via semi-structured interviews. A robust and iterative process of qualitative data analysis was undertaken. The findings are framed in terms of Davis' Technology Acceptance Model of evaluation (i.e. user perceptions).There were a range of perceived benefits of the Framework including as a means of quality assurance, career progression, the promotion of knowledge consolidation and reflective practice. There were however, a number of 'translation into practice' issues. Given the newness of the MSK Framework, it is perhaps not surprising there is a need for refinement. This evaluation highlights key enablers for reviewing capabilities of MSK ...

RESUMO Objetivo: Comparar as propriedades de medida (consist ência interna, confiabilidade intra e interavaliadores, validade do construto, e efeitos teto e piso) da Escala de Estado Funcional para UTI (FSS-ICU - Functional Status Score for the ICU) e da Medida de Independência Funcional (MIF)-domínio motor). Métodos: Neste estudo de propriedades de medi da, a FSS-ICU e a MIF foram aplicadas em 100 pacientes (72,1 ± 15,9 anos; 53% masculino; Sequential Organ Failure Assessment = 11,0 ± 3,5 pontos; Simplified Acute Physiology Score 3 = 50,2 ± 16,8 pontos) na unidade de terapia ...

ConclusionsThe preliminary findings showed that the influence of VR training on the balance ability in patients with incomplete SCI is promising. Applying 12 to 20 sessions of 30 to 60 min of VR training may show meaningful effects. Further randomized controlled trials strongly needed.

Copper oxide nanoparticles (CuO NPs) use has exponentially increased in various applications (such as industrial catalyst, gas sensors, electronic materials, biomedicines, environmental remediation) due to their flexible properties, i.e. large surface area to volume ratio. These broad applications, however, have increased human exposure and thus the potential risk related to their short- and long-term toxicity. Their release in environment has drawn considerable attention which has become an eminent area of research and development. To understand the toxicological impact of CuO NPs, this review summarises the in-vitro and ...

Several investigations mentioned the pivotal role of oxidative stress in this complication. Betaine (BET) is widely investigated for its physio/pharmacological properties. It has been found that BET mitigates oxidative stress in dif...

Conclusions: To learn observational skills, students, facilitated by an experienced teacher, need to take the lead in their own learning process. This might imply a need for additional training for teachers. A realistic context is a precondition for learning; it might be necessary to increase possibilities for observations in clinical contexts or to invest in training for (simulated) patients as participants in education. Further research is needed to test the applicability of the design principles and a proto-theory for other professionals with a focus on observation and analysis of movements.

Conclusions Unsupervised isometric exercise was effective in improving pain and disability, but not perceived rating of change and pain-free grip strength when compared with wait-and-see at 8 wk. With only one of the three primary outcomes being significantly different after isometric exercises, it is doubtful if this form of exercise is efficacious as a sole treatment.
