Improving Consumer Experiences in Permanent Supportive Housing Co-Located With Health Centers: A Case Study From the Department of Veterans Affairs
DISCUSSION: Given the value placed on ease of access to healthcare, these data suggest the value of this PSH model for persons with healthcare vulnerabilities. Specific recommendations for the planned PSH expansion include: (1) continuation of proximate, open-access healthcare; (2) clear tenant policies; (3) tenant councils for each development; (4) staff knowledgeable of non-VA resources and social services; (5) Veteran-preferred hiring practices by Property/Service management; (6) gender-specific accommodations; and (7) robust 24/7 security on-site.PMID:35578766 | DOI:10.1177/21501319221098530 (Source: Primary Care)

Sexual Communication Self-Efficacy and PrEP Literacy Helps to Meet HIV Prevention Outcomes Among Black and Latinx Individuals
CONCLUSION: Providing information about PrEP to those at risk of acquiring the virus may help them connect with treatment or prevention services. Healthcare professionals should take the time to understand their patients' levels of PrEP literacy and communication self-efficacy regarding sexual health.PMID:35578769 | DOI:10.1177/21501319221099789 (Source: Primary Care)

Primary Caregiver Retention and Perceptions of Retention Strategies in a 36-Month Prospective Childhood Caries Study
CONCLUSIONS: Retention strategies were focused on frequent routine contact and increasing monetary incentives. Those strategies may have resulted in retention exceeding the proposed goals. At the end of the study, primary caregivers were comfortable with the 4-month intermediate contacts.PMID:35578770 | DOI:10.1177/21501319221097668 (Source: Primary Care)

Linking a peer coach physical activity intervention for older adults to a primary care referral scheme
CONCLUSION: Linking a peer coach physical activity intervention for older adults to a primary care referral scheme reached only a small fraction of the estimated target population. However, of the people that came to the peer coach intervention a large portion continued to participate during the entire study period. The number needed to refer to engage one older person in long term physical activity was similar to other referral schemes for lifestyle interventions. The potential benefits could be regarded proportional to the small effort needed to refer.PMID:35581538 | DOI:10.1186/s12875-022-01729-4 (Source: Primary Care)

The health of detainees and the role of primary care: Position paper of the European Forum for Primary Care
We present three case descriptions of detainees' encounters with the organisation of prison health care in three European countries. Finally, we describe the position that the European Forum for Primary Care takes. Prisoners and ex-prisoners have a worse physical and mental health compared with a cross-section of the population. However, access to good quality treatment and care is often worse than in the outside situation. In particular, well-organised primary care in the prison context could benefit prisoners and, indirectly, society at large. Moreover, continuity of care between the community and the prison situation ne...

Migrant GPs and patients: a cross-sectional study of practice characteristics, patient experiences and migration concordance
CONCLUSION: Patient experiences did not vary with GPs' migration status. Although experience of discrimination was uncommon, first-generation migrant patients experienced more discrimination. Primary care should provide non-discriminatory care, through GP awareness of unconscious bias and training to address this. Key messagesThere were large differences in percentage of migrant GPs between countries.Migrant GPs' practices had an above average proportion of people from ethnic minorities.In general, patients' experienced discrimination from GPs and practice staff was low, but first-generation migrant patients more often exp...

Exploration of the feasibility to combine patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic heart failure in self-management groups with focus on exercise self-efficacy
CONCLUSION AND IMPLICATIONS: Patients with COPD or CHF have similar levels of exercise self-efficacy, symptoms, functional capacity and health status. More severe symptoms are associated with lower levels of exercise self-efficacy regardless of diagnosis, sex and age. When forming self-management groups with a focus on exercise self-efficacy, it seems more relevant to consider level of symptoms than the specific diagnosis of COPD or CHF.Key pointsExercise training is an important part of self-management in patients with COPD and chronic heart failure (CHF). High exercise self-efficacy is required for optimal exercise train...

A qualitative assessment of medical assistant professional aspirations and their alignment with career ladders across three institutions
CONCLUSION: MAs held positive perceptions of career ladders in theory, yet recommended a number of improvements to their practical implementation across three institutions including improving clarity and consistency around requirements for advancement and matching compensation to job responsibilities. The emergence of two distinct clusters of MA professional needs and desires suggests an opportunity to further optimize career ladders to provide tailored support to MAs in order to strengthen the healthcare workforce and talent pipeline.PMID:35578176 | PMC:PMC9109348 | DOI:10.1186/s12875-022-01712-z (Source: Primary Care)
