Conservative Management Following Closed Reduction Of Traumatic Anterior Dislocation Of The Shoulder

Conservative management following closed reduction of traumatic anterior dislocation of the shoulder (Cochrane Review) Handoll HHG, Hanchard NCA, Goodchild L, Feary J The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2006, Issue 1. Art. No.: CD004962. Abstract Authors' conclusions: There is a lack of evidence from randomised controlled trials to inform the choices for conservative management following closed reduction of traumatic anterior dislocation of the shoulder.Sufficiently powered, good quality, well reported randomised controlled trials with long-term surveillance of conservative management are required. In particular, trials examining the type and duration of immobilisation would be useful.

Effect and offset of effect of treatments for hip fracture on health outcomes

The authors evaluated two hypothetical interventions to prevent hip fracture in the overall female population and in a high-risk female population. For one intervention the authors assumed treatment costs approximating treatment with bisphosphonates, and for the other intervention the authors assumed treatment costs approximating those of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

National Institute of Clinical Excellence - United Kingdom

NICE - The National Institute for Clinical Excellence - was set up as a Special Health Authority for England and Wales on 1 April 1999. It is part of the National Health Service (NHS), and its role is to provide patients, health professionals and the public with authoritative, robust and reliable guidance on current “best practice”. The guidance will cover both individual health technologies (including medicines, medical devices, diagnostic techniques, and procedures) and the clinical management of specific conditions. NICE offers the NHS and its patients a new service, which we intend shall earn, and retain, the confidence and respect of the community as a whole.

Respect for patient autonomy is an important ethical principle for medical practitioners; however, previous investigators have reported inconsistent attitudes amongst practitioners towards respect for patient autonomy. This study in empirical ethics used qualitative methods to investigate GPs' attitudes towards respect for patient autonomy in consultations for low back pain.

Prevention and Management of Hip Fracture in Older People

Hip fracture is a common serious injury that occurs mainly in older people. For many previously fit patients it means loss of prior full mobility; for some frailer patients the permanent loss of the ability to live at home. And for the frailest of all it may bring pain, confusion and disruption to complicate an already distressing last illness. Mortality after hip fracture is high: around 30% at one year. Despite significant improvements in both surgery and rehabilitation in recent decades, hip fracture remains, for patients and their carers, a much-feared injury.
