Healthcare Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (HFMEA) as an Effective Mechanism in Preventing Infection Caused by Accompanying Caregivers During COVID-19—Experience of a City Medical Center in Taiwan
Conclusion: The HFMEA model can effectively implement preventive risk assessment and workflow management of high-risk medical procedures. The model can adjudicate the health of hospital visitors during the epidemic/pandemic, provide epidemic/pandemic education training and preventive measure health education guidance for hospital visits, and improve their epidemic prevention cognition. When combined, these strategies can prevent nosocomial infection to achieve the best anti-epidemic effect. (Source: Quality Management in Healthcare)

Clinician Engagement in Quality: A Literature Review
Conclusion: There is a growing body of evidence indicating that clinical and nonclinical staff interpret the meaning of quality and quality improvement differently. Quality and quality improvement are interpreted in relation to the clinician's individual work, professional, and learning and development experience. The literature suggests that clinician interpretation is influenced in part by their own personal beliefs and values, in addition to their interpretation of their individual work/professional responsibilities.

A Health Care Value Framework for Physical Therapy Primary Health Care Organizations
Conclusion: Prior literature mainly discussed health care quality and context-specific performance for primary health care organizations separately. The current study met the need for a value-based framework, feasible for physical therapy primary health care organizations, which are for a large part micro or small. It also solves the omissions of incoherent literature and existing frameworks on continuous health care quality and context-specific performance. Future research is recommended on longitudinal exploration of the HV (health care value) framework. (Source: Quality Management in Healthcare)

Constructing Causal Networks Through Regressions: A Tutorial
This article introduces the causal network, its related concepts, and methods of analysis. The article demonstrates how hospital risk managers can use existing regression software to construct a causal network and identify root causes of an adverse event. Methods: Causal networks depict cause and effect in a set of variables. In this context, causes are strong correlations that meet 3 additional criteria: (1) causes occur prior to effects, (2) there is an articulated mechanism for how causes lead to effects, and (3) the association between cause and effect is not spurious, meaning the association persists even after oth...
