  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Mainstreaming Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
           insurance in India: Opportunities and challenges
    • Abstract: Trivedi, M
      Millions of Indians fall into poverty because of the private high Out of Pocket pattern of health financing, due to the absence of insurance coverage. Conditions like HIV and AIDS also influence poverty due to a lifelong treatment requirement. Access to insurance coverage (commercial or voluntary) has been denied to People Living with HIV (PLHIV) through various clauses. However lately, there have been certain experiments on inclusion of HIV into new or existing schemes. This paper provides a systematic review of coverage, managerial and financial systems of selected cases of HIV insurance pilots in India with an objective to explore its sustainability and ability to be replicated.

      A cross-sectional descriptive analysis of existing literature and in-depth case studies of relevant health insurance schemes were used for the review. Data was compiled using qualitative data collection tools such as in-depth interviews with officials. The schemes were analysed using two frameworks viz. managerial ability and coverage ability. The managerial ability was analysed through a Strength-Weakness-Opportunity- Threat (SWOT) analysis. The coverage ability was analysed through three dimensions viz. a) breadth b) depth and c) height. In India, there are two types of insurance policies vis- -vis HIV coverage. These were categorised as HIV-specific and HIV-sensitive policies.

      Of the seven pilot schemes reviewed, the small-scale health insurance schemes show limited success owing to smaller pool and limited managerial capabilities. The large schemes offer avenues for mainstreaming but pose issues of governance as well as marketing among PLHIVs. The findings of the research identify a specific set of issues and challenges for sustainability and replication from three perspectives viz. a) market, b) cost recovery and sustainability and c) equitable coverage.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - The influence of politics on accountabilityof health
           professionals in Bangladesh: An analysis of the quality of health service
           delivery
    • Abstract: Islam, M
      This study explored the role and responsibility of elected officials including political actors and addressed the factors of politics, decentralisation, bureaucratic management, and political commitment to understanding accountability in health service delivery. This study used qualitative case studies for which a total of 68 in-depth interviews and five focus group discussions were conducted in two areas of rural and urban Bangladesh. The findings show that political actors have poor commitment to improving accountability and healthcare delivery. The elected officials are not interested in organising regular meetings and they are even reluctant to organise a health service committee to make health officials accountable. The opposition political parties have no participation in health service organisations as the existing political culture does not allow it. Moreover, elected officials have a limited administrative authority because of an inadequate decentralised health system that leads to poor accountability and inadequate healthcare delivery. Further, bureaucrats want to capture power and are unwilling to decentralise the health system. The policy recommendation includes the decentralisation of healthcare provision and increased participation of elected representatives in a decentralised system.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Understanding pharmacist communication and medication
           errors: A systematic literature review
    • Abstract: Sassoli, M; Day, G
      Objective: To better understand the inter-professional clinical communication between pharmacists, other health professionals and medication errors.

      Methods: This research study used a systematic literature review approach by searching online databases including Medline, PubMed and CINHAL to understand the relationship between pharmacist clinical communication and medication errors. The results of this study show that from 1158 studies that were screened and assessed, only 454 studies were initially selected after the application of inclusion and exclusion criteria. A PRISMA chart and descriptive analysis was used to present the result.

      Results: The results concluded that of the 18 studies, 17 showed a relationship between communication and medication errors, while only one study indicated no relationship. Thematic synthesis was used to classify the result of the 17 studies. The result was classified into five general themes based on the literature review and similarity among the studies.

      Conclusions: This systematic literature review investigated the interrelationship between communication and medication errors. In regards to patient safety, the research highlights that structured communication is effective in preventing medication errors. These errors can occur within the medication management cycle at any point of the drug distribution chain. This is due to the involvement of different health professionals, and different steps in the cycle from the correct prescription through to correct administration. Thus, to effectively prevent medication errors and reduce the rate of patient harm, structured communication (verbally and non-verbally) is highly recommended.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Remaking practices in the redesign of a primary
           healthcare program
    • Abstract: Rule, J; Dunston, R; Solomon, N
      Objective: To develop a detailed account of changed practices in everyday work in the redesign of primary healthcare program.

      Design: The research aimed to produce layered and rich descriptions of the complex and multidimensional remaking of health practices. Empirical data was gathered through ethnographic methods including; interviewing, self-reporting, observation and shadowing. The subjects of the research were involved as active participants in the research design, data gathering and analysis.

      Setting: HealthOne was a New South Wales government attempt to provide a local and responsive model to improve chronic disease management in primary and community healthcare settings. We report specifically on the HealthOne program implemented in a suburb of Western Sydney.

      Main outcome measures: The research did not aim to evaluate the program but to uncover instances of professional learning though identifying changes in professional practice. These were noted and observed by the researchers and research participants or through reflexive conversations with the program planners, healthcare workers and the research team.

      Results: Drawing on the work of a number of learning and practice-based theory writers, particularly those using a socio-material approach, we describe how practice change has occurred and how work practices have been remade at this site - especially in the role of the General Practice Liaison Nurse (GPLN).

      Conclusions: The research demonstrated the potential for new categories and practices of health work to emerge; this was especially seen in the work of the GPLN but also extended to new ways of working through General Practitioners and community health networks.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Flexible, capable, adaptable: A dynamic allied health
           workforce
    • Abstract: May, K; McAlinde, F; Splawa-Neyman, M; O'Rourke, M; Sturgess, T
      Objective: The Allied Health Executive at a major Metropolitan Health Service was experiencing an increasing number of flexible work requests and was keen to ensure that local and legislative requirements were met, our highly skilled and specialist staff were supported to remain in the workforce as their life outside work changed and the operational demands of a bed-based service delivery model were not negatively impacted.

      Design: A root cause analysis was completed identifying three main contributing factors for the current, adhoc approach to flexible work requests. Current and past flexible work participants were surveyed, along with their managers and the Nurse Unit Managers of the clinical work areas. A literature review and environmental scan regarding frameworks for decision making for and supporting flexible work requests was undertaken.

      Findings: There was a lack of consistent information as to how to establish and manage a flexible work request. There had been an historical view that flexible work requests were difficult to operationalise and there were missed experiences with flexible work arrangements for the people involved, their managers and their colleagues.

      Outcome measures: The combined data was then utilised to develop a framework to support decision-making around whether a role could operate as a flexible work arrangement. A framework on how to best support the staff considering and entering into these arrangements to ensure all the benefits of a flexible work arrangement are realised and many of the challenges minimised was also developed.

      Conclusion: Flexible work arrangements should be considered in appropriate circumstances, and will have the best opportunity for success when supported by a consistent, evidenced-based framework.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Introduction of the community rehabilitation Northern
           Queensland service
    • Abstract: Mervin, M; Barker, R; Sealey, C; Comans, T
      Objective: To analyse trends in length of hospital stay before and after the implementation of the Community Rehabilitation Northern Queensland Service (CRNQ) in Townsville, Australia.

      Design: Retrospective analysis of collected administrative data provided by the data custodian Townsville Hospital Health Service District.

      Setting: All patients discharged from the Townsville hospital between 1 July 2008 and 30 June 2013 for whom the Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups were stroke (B70), degenerative nervous system disorders (B67) or rehabilitation (Z60).

      Main outcome measures: Average length of stay and total number of inpatient episodes coded stroke, degenerative nervous system disorders or rehabilitation.

      Results: Length of stay for the selected diagnosis related groups was consistently ranging from 23 days to 25 days for the period 2008-2012. In the first year of full operational capacity of CRNQ (2012-13), there was an average reduction of six days in length of stay. The major reductions in length of stay occurred in patients admitted for rehabilitation care.

      Conclusions: This study adds additional evidence that earlier discharge can be facilitated for patients with neurological conditions living outside metropolitan areas when appropriate rehabilitation services are available in the community.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Leadership in allied health: A review of the
           literature
    • Abstract: Bradd, P; Travaglia, J; Hayen, A
      Background: It is well established that effective clinical leadership improves the quality of healthcare service provision and promotes leadership outcomes. [1,2] Leadership capacity and capability of allied health professionals is needed for successful clinical service provision, [3] but less is known about allied health leadership than about other clinical groups.

      Aims: The literature review aimed to identify research about leadership and leadership development of allied health practitioners in healthcare settings.

      Methods: A database review was undertaken using SCOPUS, CINAHL, Medline and Business Elite databases from December 2014-September 2015. Three leadership journals were also hand searched. A total of 1665 articles were identified. These were scanned and 129 articles were retrieved with 70 articles shortlisted for indepth review.

      Results: After application of inclusion and exclusion criteria, seven journal articles were included in the literature review. Review of the studies identified two areas of primary focus: leadership styles and outcomes and leadership development programs.

      Conclusions: Findings showed that there are currently a limited number of robust published reports in relation to leadership and allied health practitioners. Implications for Practice: Well-designed research studies to further evaluate leadership skills of allied health practitioners as well as to determine the effectiveness of leadership programs in developing transformational leaders are required.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Identifying and ranking areas of relative need for new
           public dental clinics using a state-of-the-art data simulation approach
    • Abstract: Dudko, Y; Robey, D; Kruger, E; Tennant, M
      Background: Lower socioeconomic groups and country residents are more likely to experience dental disease. Previous research has found that it is generally more cost effective to provide subsidised dental care through publically employed dentists when compared to subcontracting the work out to the private sector.

      Objective: The primary objective of this study was to identify and rank areas of relative need for new public dental care facilities across Australia. The secondary objective was to gauge how many of these areas are located in the vicinity of an existing public hospital (medical) with a view to utilise existing infrastructure for future service rollout.

      Methods: Usual resident population, employment status and socioeconomic distribution data was downloaded from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website at Statistical Area 1 level. A mathematical weighing formula was applied to those variables, which subsequently allowed for ranking of the results based on magnitude of the product values.

      The findings were considered in terms of proximity to existing public health infrastructure.

      Results: A total of 49 SA1 areas were identified and preselected as potential sites for new public dental clinics across Australia. Eighty per cent of the identified areas of relative need were located outside metropolitan areas. Fifty per cent of those were found to be in close proximity to an existing public hospital (medical).

      Conclusion: Offering subsidised dental care through existing public hospitals may be an option. Such an approach has a potential to improve access to subsidised dental care in regional centres while minimising capital expenditure on infrastructure.
