"Nuclear" medicine physicians as communicators: their point of view on the aftermath of "nuclear" disaster
TLDR
This review intends to discuss emerging problems and enlighten a way to communicate in such events, tell people how to react in such scenarios and prevent panic by providing rational information. Expand
Learning from practice variation to improve the quality of care.
TLDR
This paper describes some of the quality improvement techniques used in medicine, which include selecting the 'package' of clinical actions to implement, identifying subsidiary actions to achieve the improvement aim, designing the implementation strategy and ways to incentivise QI. Expand
Comparison of a Trigger Tool and Voluntary Reporting to Identify Adverse Events in a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
Whereas the Trigger Tool is a simple, efficient and robust method, voluntary reporting is inadequate and captures very few adverse events in the intensive care unit environment. Expand
Did a quality improvement collaborative make stroke care better? A cluster randomized trial
