Objective: To determine the incidence of adverse events (AEs) associated with umbilical catheters in the neonatal population. Study design: Systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies and randomized controlled trials published between 2010 and 2020. Results: In total 14,226 umbilical venous catheters (UVCs) and 4228 umbilical arterial catheters (UACs) were included. Overall, 13.4% of UVCs were associated with an AE (95% CI: 10.1–17.0) or 2.4 per 1000 catheter days (95% CI: 1.8–3...

INTRODUCTION Adverse events associated with umbilical catheters include malposition, bloodstream infections, thrombosis, tip migration, and extravasation, resulting in loss of vascular access and increased risk of morbidity and mortality. There is a need for greater understanding of risk factors associated with adverse events to inform safe practice. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to summarise the existing evidence regarding risk factors for umbilical catheter-related adverse events to info...

BACKGROUND Home or residential care facility based blood transfusion is beneficial for individuals requiring transfusion due to reduced disruption to daily life and the comfort of a familiar environment. However, blood transfusion may result in serious adverse events. There is a lack of research in this area and there is a need to identify rates of adverse events and evaluate the system used for this service. OBJECTIVE To determine the rate of individual and system adverse events associated with...

Psychological interventions are often recommended as adjuncts to medical treatment for women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP). This is as women with CPP experience higher rates of mental health concerns and difficulties coping with their pain.. However, recent systematic reviews have highlighted that the efficacy of psychological interventions is no...

Objective: Establishing predictors of mental health outcomes is a crucial precursor to the development and assessment of psychological interventions for women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP). The objective of this study was to identify predictors of depression, anxiety and stress in a cohort of women with CPP. Design: Cross-sectional analytic study. Methods: Pre-treatment questionnaires were collected from 212 women with CPP, who had attended a private specialist pelvic pain clinic over a period ...

As a treatment summary (TS) documents information for follow-up care, it is believed to be an important communication tool for the patient, their GP, and other health professionals. The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to evaluate the impact of receiving a TS for cancer survivors when compared to receiving standard care and to identify knowledge gaps to inform future research. A systematic search of electronic databases and grey literature was undertaken from August 2018 to October 2018. S...
