Impact of an internal medicine nocturnist service on care of patients with cancer at a large Canadian teaching hospital: a quality-improvement study
CMAJ Open. 2021 Jun 18;9(2):E667-E672. doi: 10.9778/cmajo.20200167. Print 2021 Apr-Jun.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Nocturnists (overnight hospitalists) are commonly implemented in US teaching hospitals to adhere to per-resident patient caps and improve care but are rare in Canada, where patient caps and duty hours are comparatively flexible. Our objective was to assess the impact of a newly implemented nocturnist program on perceived quality of care, code status documentation and patient outcomes.METHODS: Nocturnists were phased in between June 2018 and December 2019 at Toronto General Hospital, a large academic teaching hospital ...

The real-world cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery for the treatment of severe obesity: a cost-utility analysis
This study evaluates the real-world cost-utility of therapy for severe obesity, from the publicly funded health care system and societal perspectives.METHODS: We conducted a cost-utility analysis using primary data from a prospective observational cohort of adults living with severe obesity (BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2 and a major medical comorbidity or BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2) who were enrolled in a regional obesity program over 2 years. We extrapolated 10-year and lifetime Markov models, validated and supplemented with literature sources, to compare medical, surgical and standard care therapies. We performed deterministic and probabilis...
