BACKGROUND: Improving accuracy of identification of COVID-19-related deaths is essential to public health surveillance and research. The verbal autopsy, an established strategy involving an interview with a decedent's caregiver or witness using a semi-structured questionnaire, may improve accurate counting of COVID-19-related deaths. OBJECTIVE: To develop and pilot-test the Verbal Autopsy Instrument for COVID-19 (VAIC) and a death adjudication protocol using it. METHODS/KEY RESULTS: We used a mu...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment has experienced a rapid transformation in the USA. New direct-acting antiviral (DAA) medications make treatment easier, less toxic, and more successful (90% or greater viral cure) than prior, interferon-based HCV medications. We sought to determine whether DAAs may have improved access to HCV treatment for hard-to-reach populations such as the homeless. In a retrospective study of VA electronic medical record data, a cohort was created of 63,586 veterans with a ...

Despite enormous changes in medicine over the last 50 years, the oral presentation of newly admitted patients remains a core activity in academic teaching hospitals. With increased pace and complexity of care, it is time to refresh this tradition, as its efficiency and utility in contemporary practice are open to question. In this paper, we suggest a revised structure to help presenters organize their thoughts before the oral presentation and provide an online tool for doing so. We then offer ti...

Polypharmacy is associated with the increased use of potentially inappropriate medications, where the risks of medicine use outweigh its benefits. Stopping medicines (deprescribing) that are no longer needed can be beneficial to reduce the risk of adverse events. We summarized the willingness of patients and their caregivers towards deprescribing. A systematic search was conducted in four databases from inception until April 30, 2021 as well as search of citation of included articles. Studies th...
