[Patient and public involvement in health-related research: How is the selection of participants reported?]
DISCUSSION: The various documents about and contributions to the topic of PPI should, in future, report more transparently and systematically on the selection of participants, especially to create practical added value for authors of studies. This includes, in particular, the description of the selection (studies with PPI), a complete overview of all relevant steps of the selection process (PPI guidelines), recommendations on how to deal with representativeness (studies on PPI), notes on reporting PPI (journals) as well as overviews of individual steps of the implementation process (PPI websites).

[Scoping Review of the Effectiveness of Screen-to-Screen-Therapy compared to Face-to-Face-Therapy on Naming Performance for Patients with Aphasia].
CONCLUSION: For many patients screen-to-screen-therapy is currently the only possibility to receive speech therapy treatment. Therefore it is a positive aspect that screen-to-screen-therapy is as effective as face-to-face-therapy. Screen-to-screen-therapy can provide expanded access to health care and professional expertise in health services. In this way, speech therapy care during the COVID-19 pandemic can be largely maintained. Further research is needed on evidence-based treatment methods and user-oriented apps for video therapy.

Implementation of patient-reported outcome assessment in routine cancer care: A systematic review of multicentric programs in Europe.
CONCLUSION: Few reports have so far been published on PROM programs that allow for both the monitoring of an individual patient's outcome and use in quality improvement initiatives. The studies revealed relevant information on existing PROM programs and gave valuable insight into issues that need to be considered when setting up such an infrastructure. Some critical issues, however, were hardly addressed, among them costs, staff resources and methods of reporting and responding.

CONCLUSIONS: GPs benefit from delegating to MFA with extended qualification as shown by the associated added values and setting of deployment for delivery of tasks. Delegation to non-medical staff should be considered by more GPs as a means of supporting healthcare delivery. In addition to legal changes, further procedures are needed to encourage GPs to get more actively involved with the issue of delegation and consider to further develop the competence of their staff and deploy them accordingly.

CONCLUSIONS: In the process of communicating non-numerical medical test results, people without a medical background understand neutral, descriptive adjectives better than adjectives that are considered judgmental in everyday usage. A corresponding change of written and oral communication can easily be implemented by medical experts in their everyday practice and particularly supports a population group that already suffers disadvantages in the medical system.

Authors: Brunsmann F Abstract The article addresses deficits in patient orientation and patient involvement in medical research from a patient's perspective and provides recommendations for their further development. Researchers often practice patient orientation as well as patient involvement in an unstructured and inconsistent manner. The decision if and how patient involvement takes place is, to a considerable extent, the researchers' responsibility. This decision should always be part of a patient-oriented alignment of the research project, which researchers pursue regardless of the existence, initiative and pa...

CONCLUSION: The main challenge in the HIOPP-3 iTBX study was to form interprofessional teams in each cluster. A stepwise, partly dependent recruitment process in a large group of potential participants presents organizational challenges that should be taken into account while planning the study. In order to reach the calculated sample size in the HIOPP-3 iTBX study, a pragmatic and flexible approach, adapted to local circumstances, was required. Further studies may benefit from the experiences made in the HIOPP-3 iTBX study. PMID: 32861614 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Zeitschrift fur Evidenz, Fortbildun...

CONCLUSION: Analysis of breast surgery quality indicators reveals a lower level of adherence to guideline recommendations for men with breast cancer compared to women in some aspects of the guideline, as measured by statutory quality indicators in breast surgery. Male breast cancer might be a rare disease, but nevertheless, awareness-rising is needed in diagnostics, treatment and interdisciplinarity in order to avoid inequality between the sexes.
