Numerous studies have confirmed that the patient safety challenge remains tangible. Innovative use of healthcare IT (Information Technology) could play a part in the solution, if the costs of development and implementation are weighed against the major potential savings by improving quality and safety. It is suggested through the "Safe Seven"-checklist, that the design of supporting eHealth solutions lends principles from the patient safety and physical design domains. Source

We have previously studied system failures involved in medication errors using a limited number of root cause analyses as source. The aim of this study was to describe a larger number of medication errors with respect to harm, involved medicines and involved system problems - thus providing information for the development of IT-based decision support. We evaluated 3,520 medication error reports derived from 12 months of consecutive reporting from 13 hospitals in the Capital Region of Denmark. We found 0.65% errors with serious harm and 16% with moderate harm. A small number of medicines were involved in the majority of the errors. The problems in the medication error process were heterogeneous. Some were related to specific medicines and others were related to the computerized order entry system. Accordingly decision support targeted at specific medicines and improved IT systems are part of the continuing work to reduce the frequency of medication errors. Source

Background: We assessed the prevalence of neck pain in the population in relation to headache. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, a total of 797 individuals completed a headache interview and provided self-reported data on neck pain.We identified migraine, TTH or both migraine and TTH (M+TTH) groups. Pericranial tenderness was recorded in 496 individuals. A total tenderness score (TTS) was calculated as the sum of local scores with a maximum score of 48. Results: The one-year prevalence of neck pain was 68.4% and higher in those with vs. without primary headache (85.7% vs. 56.7%; adjusted OR 3.0, 95% CI 2.04.4, p<0.001). Adjusting for age, gender, education and poor self-rated health, in comparison with those without headaches, the prevalence of neck pain (56.7%) was significantly higher in those with MTTH (89.3%), pure TTH (88.4%) and pure migraine (76.2%) (p<0.05 for all three group comparisons). Individuals with neck pain had higher TTS than individuals without neck pain (15.1±10.5 vs. 8.4±8.0, p<0.001). Conclusions: Neck pain is highly prevalent in the general population and even more prevalent in individuals with primary headaches. Prevalence is highest in coexistent M+TTH, followed by pure TTH and migraine. Myofascial tenderness is significantly increased in individuals with neck pain. © International Headache Society 2014.

In the last two years, the author participated in the work safety standardization assessments of dozens of units, and found some problems in the assessment process. This article analyzed the common problems in the standardization work of production safety in Beijing from the aspects of the attitude of administration of work safety, the attitude of the head of the enterprise, firm size and the level of review experts. Then corresponding countermeasures and suggestions to address these issues were proposed, these countermeasures and suggestions include administration of work safety putting themselves in a correct position, the head of the enterprise correcting their attitude, improving the level of safety management of enterprise and choosing appropriate experts. © 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
