Socioeconomic factors may influence outcomes through multiple mechanisms including difference in co-morbidities and differential treatments including less aggressive care.
However, little is known about the impact of socioeconomic factors in patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest both in Denmark and internationally. We wish to assess the relationship between socioeconomic factors and treatments and outcomes for patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest in Denmark. Identifying such relationships will facilitate interventions to improve equality in treatment and outcomes.
The aim of this project is to determine whether there is a difference in return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) depending on the type of vascular access (intravenous or intraosseous) placed during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).
The projects aims at investigating how healthcare professionals use an information system (IS) to support patient treatment in a shift work context. Theoretically, use is motivated by a number of factors related to the individual user’s domain such as usefulness to the individual user’s work or ease of use. In a setting in which close collaboration not only within a single work shift, but also across is a prerequisite for the quality of patient care/outcome, the use of IS may be motivated by other factors than usefulness and ease of use.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected healthcare systems and patient safety worldwide; however, with different implications for societies, health, and survival. So far, published research on organizational changes and their possible clinical consequences during Covid-19 is sparse. To be well prepared for a new pandemic or future crises affecting healthcare, it is crucial to evaluate the efforts and learning embedded in handling the pandemic
The aim of the project is to analyze the organizational steps at various levels in two acute healthcare systems (Denmark and Italy) and further analyze the clinical consequences on flow and patient safety.
Treatment of elderly patients in own home – a cross-sectorial alternative to emergency admission
The purpose of this research project is to avoid cases with unnecessary emergency admissions of elderly, medical patients to reduce the risk of infections, delirium and physical and psychical loss of function at a vulnerable patient group.
TAME Cardiac Arrest is a phase III, multi-centre, randomised, parallel-group, controlled trial to determine whether targeted therapeutic mild hypercapnia (TTMH) improves neurological outcome at 6 months compared to standard care (targeted normocapnia (TN)) in resuscitated cardiac arrest patients who are admitted to the intensive care unit.
The overall aim is this project is to improve the performance of PEWS and its acceptability among healthcare professionals. Three studies including a scoping review, a Delphi study and a prospective, cluster-randomized cross-over project will be conducted. The project will contribute to the existing knowledge of PEWS and nurses’ clinical judgment in relation to clinical deterioration of children.
The project investigates ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) among patients with multimorbidity. The project uncovers patient-related and organisational characteristics of admissions to hospital emergency departments. The aim is to develop and test risk assessment tool for use in primary care in order to prevent certain acute admissions effectively.
The aim of this project is to develop a blended teaching program with spaced simulation training compared to traditional instructor-led classroom teaching. This study will contribute with important knowledge on how to optimally acquire competence in ultrasound guided thoracentesis at both a national and international level. The results of this project will help set standards for future evidence-based training as no guidelines exist for training in thoracentesis.
The aim of the study is to improve acute pain treatment in the ED, for both opioid tolerant and opioid naïve patients. KeTMo is a randomized, double-blinded trial, investigating the combination of IV LDK and IV morphine versus IV morphine and placebo as regards to analgesic. This study is the first to examine the effect of LDK as an adjunct to morphine in a general patient population in the ED with a prior use of opioids and to compare it with the effect for patients without a prior use of opioids.
The overall purpose of the project is to describe and characterize the evolution of trauma epidemiology and mechanisms over the past 20 years in a representative region of Denmark.
The focus will be concerned trauma types, severity, epidemiological parameters, uptake area and vital parameters upon arrival at the Aarhus University Hospital Trauma Center.
