Measuring performance on the Healthcare Access and Quality Index for 195 countries and territories and selected subnational locations: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016

Measuring performance on the Healthcare Access and Quality Index for 195 countries and territories and selected subnational locations: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016: GBD 2016 provides a more detailed understanding of past success and current challenges
in improving personal health-care access and quality worldwide. Despite substantial
gains since 2000, many low-SDI and middle-SDI countries face considerable challenges
unless heightened policy action and investments focus on advancing access to and quality
of health care across key health services, especially non-communicable diseases. Stagnating
or minimal improvements experienced by several low-middle to high-middle SDI countries
could reflect the complexities of re-orienting both primary and secondary health-care
services beyond the more limited foci of the Millennium Development Goals.

Deriving a Framework for a Systems Approach to Agitated Patient Care in the Emergency Department

Deriving a Framework for a Systems Approach to Agitated Patient Care in the Emergency Department: The rising agitated patient population presenting to the emergency department (ED)
has caused increasing safety threats for health care workers and patients. Development
of evidence-based strategies has been limited by the lack of a structured framework
to examine agitated patient care in the ED. In this study, a systems approach from
the patient safety literature was used to derive a comprehensive theoretical framework
for addressing ED patient agitation.
