AbstractThe Orthognathic Team at the Eastman Dental Hospital has developed a new style of multidisciplinary clinic to supplement the traditional orthognathic consultation. The aim of the new clinic is to increase patient satisfaction and involvement in the consent and decision making process, as well as optimizing the information given to prospective patients regarding all aspects of this complex elective treatment. Results of a survey of patients attending the clinic found that 80% thought that the information given was 'just the right amount' and 96% were satisfied with the new structure. They particularly found it useful to meet a patient who had completed treatment. All of those who attended said that they understood the information given to them and would recommend the clinic to those considering orthognathic treatment. They also liked having other patients there with them on the clinic.

“What Is PER?” Patient Engagement in Research as a HitBélisle-Pipon, Jean-Christophe; Del Grande, Claudio; Rouleau, Geneviève (Programmes de bioéthique, École de santé publique de l'Université de MontréalÉrudit, 2018)Engaging patients in research conduct and agenda setting is increasingly considered as an ethical imperative, and a way to transcend views of patients as passive subjects by fostering their empowerment. However, patient engagement in research (PER) is still an emerging approach with debated definitional and operational frameworks. This song addresses the sometimes difficult encounter and elusive mutual understanding between researchers and patients. “What is PER?” is an impressionistic illustration of the challenges and issues that can be found in the universe of patient engagement in research.
Metabolic therapeutics in angina pectoris: history revisited with perhexiline.Inglis, S; Stewart, S (2012-02-02)The ever-increasing burden of ischaemic heart disease and its common manifestation chronic angina pectoris calls for the exploration of other treatment options for those patients who despite the maximum conventional pharmacological and surgical interventions continue to suffer. Such exploration has led to the increasing use of new metabolically acting antianginal agents and the re-emergence of an old and somewhat forgotten pharmacological agent, perhexiline maleate. This review aims to update the cardiac nurse with knowledge to manage the care a patient receiving perhexiline maleate treatment and provide a brief review of three new metabolic agents: trimetazidine, ranolazine and etomoxir.
