Aspire. Empowering professionals to lead Haemophilia care

Abstract

Members of the multi-disciplinary team involved in delivering haemophilia care face a range of significant clinical and service leadership challenges. These include the developing treatment landscape, the drive towards individualised care, an uneven age structure among haemophilia nurses and constrained budgets. Faced with such challenges, the ASPIRE programme has been established to encourage and support a new generation of haemophilia leaders who are committed to improving haemophilia care across the UK, and beyond. The programme is open to healthcare professional from multiple disciplines, and is designed to support the development of a leadership community comprising members of the haemophilia care team in a way that contrasts with hierarchical leadership and management courses more typically found in the NHS.

Multidisciplinary Treatment of Voluminous Pelvic Tumor With Gluteal Development - Case Presentation

Abstract

The aim of the paper was to present the case of a 64-year-old patient with no significant pathological history, accusing the significant increase in volume of her left buttock, accompanied by sciatic compression and pelvic pain phenomena. Clinical evaluation revealed a large, left gluteal tumor, of regular shape and medium consistency, painless at palpation, causing hyperesthesia in the sciatic territory by compression. The IRM with contrast enhancement described a heterogeneous tumor, measuring about 25 centimeters in diameter, isointense in the T1 and T2 signals, with hypointense areas and imagistic aspect suggesting differential diagnosis between liposarcoma and fibrolipoma. From the imagistic point of view, the origin of the tumor was pelvic, with a threadlike tract in the sciatic hole and development in the gluteal region for the most part. Surgery was decided on a multidisciplinary team including a gynecologist, orthopaedist, and general surgeon, using a double approach through laparotomy and gluteal incision. The first operative step consisted in laparotomy with pelvic tumor dissection at the level of the iliac vessels and its prolongation at the level of the sciatic hole. The large gluteal incision was used during the second step in order to mobilize the tumor form between the gluteal fibers. Subsequent thorough hemostasis was performed with postoperative aspect inspection through both approaches. The postoperative evolution was favorable without immediate or late complications. The histopathological result was fibrolipoma, with good prognosis for the patient. In conclusion, the multidisciplinary surgical approach in this patient presenting with a pelvic tumor with transischial gluteal development was the optimal choice, which led to a favorable outcome in a complex case.

Odontogenic suppurative rhinosinusitis with oculo-orbital and cerebral complications - case series

Abstract

BACKGROUND. Odontogenic rhinosinusal suppurations have a high potential for major ocular-orbital and cerebral complications because of the presence of anaerobic bacteria flora, with continuity, contiguity and haematogenous propagation mechanisms. This pathology is often diagnosed in other departments than ENT such as ophthalmology, neurosurgery or OMF surgery.

MATERIAL AND METHODS. We present three clinical cases of odontogenic rhinosinusal suppurations with major complications: a 36-year-old patient with odontogenic pansinusitis complicated with orbital phlegmon and cerebral frontal lobe abscess; a 19-year-old patient with complicated maxillary-ethmoidal-frontal sinusitis complicated with frontal subdural empyema and frontal bone osteomyelitis (with a history of craniofacial trauma one year before); a 66-year-old patient with odontogenic maxillary-ethmoidal sinusitis complicated with orbital apex syndrome.

RESULTS. The treatment was surgical, by external approach, with endoscopic nasal control, in interdisciplinary teams. We have associated massive antibiotic therapy. Surgical drainage for complicated rhinosinusitis should be done in emergency, within the first 24 hours after admission, according to guidelines. The bacteriological examination for aerobic and anaerobic flora can guide the diagnosis - two cases associated maxillo-ethmoidal aspergilloma lesions. The evolution of the cases was favourable.

CONCLUSION. Interdisciplinary teams have successfully solved these complicated odontogenic rhinosinusal suppurations. Two of the cases were admitted and cured within 2 weeks, in the context of very hot weather, which exacerbated dormant dental infections.

An Inclusive Secondary School in Bratislava

Abstract

The study presents a characterization of an inclusive secondary school in Bratislava and provides information about the forms and methods used in the work of the teachers, school psychologists, special teachers with regard to students with special needs (students with Attention and Hyperactivity Disorder, i.e. ADHD, with learning difficulties, with emotional and behaviour difficulties, etc.), who are educated together with mainstream students. It also provides information on the first results of the measurements of the socio-emotional health of the students in the inclusive school, both as to its overall level (covitality index) and as to the level of the four psychological dimensions of mental health. The pilot project of the inclusive school confirms that inclusive secondary schools and inclusive education operating within the intentions of positive psychology help the students to develop their cognitive and socio-emotional competences, to create favourable attitudes to diversity, to form the students’ scale of positive values and to encourage positive interpersonal relationships, social cohesion and social classroom climate.

The role of stimulating employees’ creativity and idea generation in encouraging innovation behaviour in Irish firms

innovation. To date, a lot of attention has been paid to the role of research and development ( Cohen et al., 1987 ; Doran et al., 2013 ) and networking ( Boschma, 2005 ; Doran et al., 2012b ; Freel, 2003 ) in the innovation performance of firms. While a number of qualitative studies and case studies have been conducted on the role less tangible factors such as brainstorming and multidisciplinary teams play in a firm’s innovation performance, there has been relatively little quantitative analysis. Drawing on insights from the Componential Theory of Creativity
