  1. Implementing an electronic medication overview in Belgium.

    Storms, Hannelore; Marquet, Kristel; Nelissen, Katherine; Hulshagen, Leen; Lenie, Jan; Remmen, Roy; Claes, Neree
    Background: An accurate medication overview is essential to reduce medication errors. Therefore, it is essential to keep the medication overview up-to-date and to exchange healthcare information between healthcare professionals and patients. Digitally shared information yields possibilities to improve communication. However, implementing a digitally shared medication overview is challenging. This articles describes the development process of a secured, electronic platform designed for exchanging medication information as executed in a pilot study in Belgium, called “Vitalink”. Findings: The goal of “Vitalink” is to improve the exchange of medication information between professionals working in healthcare and patients in order to achieve a more efficient...

  2. Bevindingen van zorgverleners bij de implementatie van een papieren medicatieschema.

    Storms, Hannelore; Claes, Neree; Hulshagen, Leen; Conings, Stefanie; Nelissen, Katherine
    Achtergrond Medicatiemanagement vereist een goede communicatie tussen zorgverleners intra- en transmuraal. Doelstelling In deze studie wordt nagegaan of een papieren medicatieschema de communicatie tussen zorgverleners van de eerste en tweede lijn in Zuidoost-Limburg verbetert. Methode In deze regio werd een papieren medicatieschema geïmplementeerd. Via een voor- en na-bevraging bij deelnemende zorgverleners werd het potentieel van het papieren medicatieschema nagegaan. De verwachtingen, de bevindingen en het gebruik van dit schema werden bevraagd. Resultaten Als belangrijkste valkuilen worden tijdsinvestering van zorgverleners en de medewerking van patiënten genoteerd. Een papieren medicatieschema blijkt voornamelijk te worden gebruikt om medicatiefouten te reduceren. Daarnaast zien slechts enkele zorgverleners het potentieel van een papieren medicatieschema als instrument...

  3. Towards inclusive careers: Reimagining, rethinking and reshaping careers from the perspective of disadvantaged groups

    VAN LAER, Koen; Verbruggen, Marijke; Janssens, Maddy
    In recent decades, we have seen the emergence of the ???new??? career discourse, describing the rise of ???new??? careers, characterized by increased career mobility driven by personal initiative and marketable skills and networks. The goal of this article is bringing the voice of disadvantaged groups in the conversations about ???new??? careers, which currently mainly seem to reflect the experiences of relatively privileged individuals on the labour market. Drawing on the literature on the careers and organizational experiences of historically disadvantaged groups, on the diversity literature, and on qualitative material about the careers of individuals from disadvantaged groups, this article explores...

  4. Implementing an electronic medication overview in Belgium.

    STORMS, Hannelore; MARQUET, Kristel; CLAES, Neree
    Objectives: Digitally sharing information enables improved communication, consequently increasing accuracy of a medication overview, resulting in reduced medication errors [1]. The aim of this study is to evaluate implementation of an electronic medication overview, particularly its accessibility and usability. Methods: In Belgium a project called ???Vitalink??? was implemented. Main objective of this project was to improve the exchange of health information between healthcare professionals as well as towards patients. Software packages generating an electronic medication overview out of patients??? health records, were developed. The generated medication overview listed all prescribed medication with name, dose, frequency, way of administration and moment of intake. Because data...

  7. Developing a Sustainable Nutrition Research Agenda in Sub-Saharan Africa-Findings from the SUNRAY Project

    Lachat, Carl; Nago, Eunice; Roberfroid, Dominique; Holdsworth, Michelle; Smit, Karlien; Kinabo, Joyce; PINXTEN, Wim; Kruger, Annamarie; Kolsteren, Patrick
    SUNRAY was funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme Grant Agreement nr. 266080. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.

  8. Ethical issues raised by whole genome sequencing

    PINXTEN, Wim; Howard, Heidi Carmen
    While there is ongoing discussion about the details of implementation of whole genome sequencing (WGS) and whole exome sequencing (WES), there appears to be a consensus amongst geneticists that the widespread use of these approaches is not only inevitable, but will also be beneficial [1]. However, at the present time, we are unable to anticipate the full range of uses, consequences and impact of implementing WGS and WES. Nevertheless, the already known ethical issues, both in research and in clinical practice are diverse and complex and should be addressed properly presently. Herein, we discuss the ethical aspects of WGS and...

  9. In between competing discourses: the disabled employee as a productive agent

    JAMMAERS, Eline; Zanoni, Patrizia; Hardonk, Stefan
    This article explores how workers with disabilities in one Flemish organization deal with societal and organizational discourses that contradict one another. On the one hand, the move from welfare to work and its strong emphasize on labour market activation of minorities brings along a discourse of participation through paid employment. On the other hand employers are reluctant to hire or promote people with disabilities because they have been historically burdened by a discourse of unproductiveness. Performance is key in organizations, yet disabled people are by definition defined by what they cannot perform. How individuals themselves engage with these colliding discourses...

  10. Werk-priv?? maatregelen, een oplossing om het beroep van verpleegkundige aantrekkelijker te maken?

    Lembrechts, Lieve; Dekocker, Vicky; Zanoni, Patrizia; Pulignano, Valeria
    De vergrijzing veroorzaakt de laatste decennia een steeds grotere vraag naar verpleegkundigen. Tot op vandaag is in Vlaanderen de job van verpleegkundige nog steeds een knelpuntberoep (VDAB, 2014). Als gevolg hiervan hebben ziekenhuizen moeite om voldoende personeel aan te trekken en in dienst te houden. Gezien onderzoek uitwijst dat verpleegkundigen vaak een onevenwicht tussen werk en priv?? ervaren ??? wat in de wetenschappelijke literatuur ???work-family conflict??? genoemd wordt (Kovner, Brewer, Wu, Cheng, & Suzuki, 2006; Pal & Saksvik, 2008; Simon, Kummerling, & Hasselhorn, 2004) ??? , lijkt het van groot belang om hier op in te grijpen. Daarom is het...

  11. Process evaluation outcomes from a global child obesity prevention intervention

    Pettigrew, Simone; Borys, Jean Michel; du Plessis, Hugues Ruault; Walter, Lea; Huang, Terry T-K; Levi, Jeffrey; VINCK, Jan
    Background: While it is acknowledged that child obesity interventions should cover multiple ecological levels (downstream, midstream and upstream) to maximize their effectiveness, there is a lack of evaluation data to guide the development and implementation of such efforts. To commence addressing this knowledge gap, the present study provides process evaluation data relating to the experiences of groups implementing the EPODE approach to child obesity prevention in various locations around the world. The aim of this exploratory study was to investigate the barriers and facilitators to program implementation in program sites around the world to assist in developing strategies to enhance...

  13. Incidence And Outcome Of Inappropriate In Hospital Empiric Antibiotic Therapy For Severe Infection: A Systematic Review.


  14. A study of the determinants of work-to-family conflict among hospital nurses in Belgium

    Lembrechts, Lieve; Dekocker, Vickie; Zanoni, Patrizia; Pulignano, Valeria
    Aims: This study examines the relative impact of three sources of work-to-family conflict among hospital nurses: work–family policy use (childcare assistance, schedule flexibility, part-time work),job dimensions (work overload, job autonomy, overtime hours, night shifts, regularity in type of shift, weekend work, hierarchical position, variation in tasks) and organisational support(physician/coworker support). Background: Many studies claim that organisational support and job dimensions are more important sources of work-to-family conflict than work–family policy use, a relation that has not been fully investigated. This study attempts to fill this gap by empirically assessing the relative impact of these sources on nurses’ workto- family conflict. Methods: Four hundred...

  15. ??motions, subjectivit?? et morphosyntaxe : l???impact de la cl??ture actancielle sur les verbes pronominaux ?? attribut de l???objet

    Lauwers, Peter; TOBBACK, Els
    Dans la pr??sente contribution, nous montrerons comment la morphosyntaxe, plus particuli??rement la construction pronominale, parvient ?? infl??chir le ?? sens ?? d???un certain nombre de classes de verbes qui se construisent avec un attribut du COD, le rapprochant de la sph??re du ressenti, de l???intuitif et du subjectif. Deux m??canismes seront identifi??s. D???une part, la cl??ture actancielle entra??n??e par l???op??rateur r??fl??chi modifie les fondements ??videntiels et cognitifs de l???attribution impliqu??e par les verbes en question. D???autre part, l???auto-attribution de propri??t??s donne lieu ?? des implicatures contrefactuelles. Ces m??canismes doivent ??tre distingu??s de la subjectivit?? obtenue ?? la suite d???un processus...

  16. The role of self-study time in freshmen’s achievement.

    Doumen, Sarah; Broeckmans, Jan; Masui, Chris
    Although invested study time is expected to relate to exam performance, research findings have been mixed. Therefore, the current study examined (a) the role of self-study time above and beyond relevant student characteristics, affective-motivational processes (i.e. academic self-efficacy, learning goal orientation, and action-state orientation) and the cognitive learning activities deployed while studying the course (i.e. deep, stepwise, and concrete processing), and (b) whether the effect of self-study time on course grade is moderated by these affective-motivational and cognitive learning activities and/or by student characteristics. Ninety three freshmen following a Macro-Economics course and 70 freshmen enrolling in Financial Accounting 2 participated....

  18. From Teacher Thinking to Teachers and Teaching: The Evolution of a Research Community

    This volume covers advances that have occurred in the thirty year existence of the International Study Association on Teachers and Teaching (ISATT), the organization that helped transition the study of teacher thinking to the study of teachers and teaching in all of its complexities. This evolution meant that teachers and the act of teaching are no longer exclusively studied from the outside, but from the inside as well. The chapters capture an international paradigm shift that set the course of teaching and teacher education research. The origins of the movement are traced, work of researchers who contributed to the movement...
