Venous thromboembolism in patients with gout and the impact of hospital admission, disease duration and urate-lowering therapy.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Systemic inflammatory diseases have been associated with increased risk of venous thromboembolism. We aimed to quantify the risk of venous thromboembolism in patients with gout, the most common inflammatory arthritis, and to assess how disease duration, hospital admission and urate-lowering therapy affect this risk. METHODS: We used data from the population-representative, England-based Clinical Practice Research Datalink linked to Hospital Episode Statistics, to identify incident gout cases between 1998 and 2017. We matched cases individually to 1 control without gout on age, gender, gen...

Physician procedure volume and related adverse events after surgically induced abortion: a population-based cohort study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Induced abortion is a common procedure performed by physicians with varying degrees of clinical experience. We aimed to determine whether a physician's procedure volume influences complications after induced abortion. METHODS: We obtained population-based retrospective data on surgically induced abortion procedures in Ontario between 2003 and 2015 from Ontario health administrative databases held at ICES. Physician procedure volume was defined as the number of surgically induced abortions performed in the 1-year period preceding the index procedure date, categorized as low (

Abstract BACKGROUND: The Health TAPESTRY (Health Teams Advancing Patient Experience: STRengthening QualitY) intervention was designed to improve primary care teamwork and promote optimal aging. We evaluated the effectiveness of Health TAPESTRY in attaining goals of older adults (e.g., physical activity, productivity, social connection, medical status) and other outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a pragmatic randomized controlled trial between January and October 2015 in a primary care practice in Hamilton, Ontario. Older adults were randomized (1:1) to Health TAPESTRY (n = 158) or control (n = 154). Trained comm...

The association of continuity of care and cancer centre affiliation with outcomes among patients with cancer who require emergency department care.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with cancer have complex care requirements and frequently use the emergency department. The purpose of this study was to determine whether continuity of care, cancer expertise of an institution or both affect outcomes in patients with cancer in the emergency setting. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study using administrative databases from Ontario, Canada, involving records of patients aged 20 years and older who received chemotherapy or radiation in the 30 days before a cancer-related visit to the emergency department between 2006 and 2011. Patients seen in an emerg...
