    • EuGMS Task and Finish group on Fall-Risk-Increasing Drugs (FRIDs): Position on Knowledge Dissemination, Management, and Future Research

      Seppala, L J; van der Velde, N; Masud, T; Blain, H; Petrovic, M; van der Cammen, T J; Szczerbinska, K; Hartikainen, S; Kenny, R A; Ryg, J; et al. (Springer, 2019-02)
      Key summary pointsFalls are under-recognized as adverse drug events.Healthcare professionals are reluctant to withdraw fall-risk-increasing medications.The EuGMS Task and Finish group on fall-risk-increasing drugs (FRIDs) proposes in this paper its recommendations on dissemination of knowledge about, management of, and future research on FRIDs. AbstractFalls are a major public health concern in the older population, and certain medication classes are a significant risk factor for falls. However, knowledge is lacking among both physicians and older people, including caregivers, concerning the role of medication as a risk factor. In the present statement, the European Geriatric Medicine Society (EuGMS) Task and Finish group on fall-risk-increasing drugs (FRIDs), in collaboration with the EuGMS Special Interest group on Pharmacology and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) Geriatric Medicine Section, outlines its position regarding knowledge dissemination on medication-related falls in older people across Europe. The EuGMS Task and Finish group is developing educational materials to facilitate knowledge dissemination for healthcare professionals and older people. In addition, steps in primary prevention through judicious prescribing, deprescribing of FRIDs (withdrawal and dose reduction), and gaps in current research are outlined in this position paper.
    • Evaluation of ICU practice in Scandinavia [editorial]

      Wernerman, J; Stefánsson, T (Blackwell Munksgaard, 2003-11-01)
      Intensive care medicine is a relatively young discipline, which in the Scandinavian countries is within the Anaesthesia speciality. Throughout the world the organization of intensive care medicine is very variable. Intensive care units (ICUs) may serve only one medical discipline or they may, as is most common in the Scandinavian countries, be multidisciplinary. The speciality of the doctors in charge of ICUs, the intensivists, also varies. In the Scandinavian countries an anaesthesiologist, profiled towards intensive care medicine is most common, but in other countries pulmonologists, surgeons, paediatricians, gastroenterologists etc, may also become intensivists.

      In recent years, tourism has become the number one account for foreign exchange income in Iceland, overtaking the fisheries industry and aluminium production. The rise of tourism has strongly affected Icelandic society in various sectors. With the increase of tourists visiting Iceland, the number of foreign citizens that died and were autopsied also rose.

    • Is there a future for obstetrics? NFYOG addresses the challenges ahead for trainees [editorial].

      Hauksdottir, Dögg; Oppegaard, Kevin Sunde (Blackwell Munksgaard, 2007-08-22)
      The Nordic Federation of Young Obstetricians and Gynecologists (NFYOG) was founded during the NFOG congress in Oslo in 2000. The initial members were a contingent of enthusiastic trainees from Denmark, Norway and Sweden who had noticed the lack of a Nordic collaboration of trainees and young specialists. This was made apparant in Rome the year before at a rather chaotic meeting for European trainees (ENTOG). With NFYOG it would not only be possible for the Nordic countries to present a coherent front at European meetings, but also for Nordic countries to gain inspiration from each other and exchange experiences in matters regarding training. Finding members was not a problem; each country has their national societies, so representatives from these joined NFYOG to form the first board. Funding was secured from the parent organisation NFOG and from the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk. To start with ambitions ran to having a session for trainees at the biannual NFOG congress. It was decided that the topic for the first session at the NFOG congress in Umea° in 2002 would be ‘Surgical training for everybody?’ This resulted in a lively discussion forum for 40 trainees and was judged to be a success. In January 2004 in Malmo¨ the first seminar organised by NFYOG was held, devoted to obstetrical and gynecological education. The following May another seminar was held on leadership for doctors. Both of these seminars received enthusiastic feedback from the participants and NFYOG decided that the board’s main focus would be a biannual seminar alternating with the NFOG congress. These seminars would be a valuable forum for Nordic trainees and an introduction to NFOG.
    • Lessons learnt from anonymized review of cases of peripartum hysterectomy by international experts: A qualitative pilot study.

      Jónasdóttir, Eva; Aabakke, Anna J M; Colmorn, Lotte B; Jakobsson, Maija; Äyräs, Outi; Baghestan, Elham; Svanvik, Teresia; van den Akker, Thomas; Bloemenkamp, Kitty; van Roosmalen, Jos; et al. (Wiley, 2019-08)
      Severe obstetric complications are not extensively studied and individual cases are used too little and inappropriately in quality improvement activities, due to limited numbers and prioritization of quantitative research. Nordic and European experts performed a qualitative pilot study using anonymized cases of peripartum hysterectomy. It was feasible to anonymize narratives and we learned lessons in the form of themes for improved clinical care and future research. Therefore, we plan a Nordic anonymized review of the care of women who have undergone peripartum hysterectomy based on narratives. The qualitative outcomes of clinically relevant themes for quality improvement and research will add value to the quantitative analyses from the Nordic medical birth registries. In the longer term, we believe that qualitative audits should be an essential part of the process of continuing improvement in maternity care.
