BACKGROUND: Sustained-release (SR) tapentadol was listed on Australia's Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) in 2014 for chronic severe pain requiring long-term opioid treatment. Dispensings have increased since listing despite declining trends in other PBS-listed opioids. Preferential prescribing of SR opioids may increase the risk of dependence and accidental overdose, particularly when used to treat acute pain. AIMS: To explore the quality use of publicly subsidised tapentadol in Australia...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
James Nolan, Ian Mackay, Timothy Nolan, Julian de Looze
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Clinical deterioration within the first 24 h of patient admission triggering a Medical Emergency Team (MET) call is a common occurrence. A greater understanding of these events, with a focus on the recognition and management of sepsis, could lead to quality improvement interventions. METHODS: A retrospective observational review of general and subspecialty medical admissions triggering a MET call within 24 h of admission at a quaternary Australian hospital...

BACKGROUND: There are few reports on drug use in patients while hospitalised and none regarding management or clinical outcomes. AIMS: To describe cases of drug use by inpatients requiring an urgent clinical response. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed cases at a teaching hospital in Sydney, Australia, from February 2019 to March 2021. RESULTS: Thirty cases were identified, with no deaths. Two patient groups were identified: (i) substance use disorders, using illicit drugs and (ii) self-harm history, using prescribed or over-the-counter drugs...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Virtual ward (VW) models of care established during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic provided safe and equitable provision of ambulatory care for low-risk patients; however, little is known about patients who require escalation of care to hospitals from VWs. AIM: To assess our VW model of care and describe the characteristics of patients admitted to the hospital from the VW. METHODS: Observational study of all patients admitted to a tertiary hospital COVID-19 VW between 1 December 2021 and 30 June 2022...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
John Aaskov, G Dennis Shanks
Although reports of outbreaks of dengue-like diseases in the Asia Pacific region were frequent from about 1870, the disease probably did not become endemic in Australia until about 1885. Several seminal discoveries about this disease were made in Queensland and later in Sydney. These included a refined case definition for dengue, identification of the mosquito vector, demonstration of a viraemia and its duration, quantification of the incubation time, demonstration of immunity after experimental infection and recognition that the virus could cause a fatal haemorrhagic fever, and this was more frequent in second or subsequent infections...

Susannah Ward
In 2016, as a trainee doctor, I wrote a paper on changing the culture of medicine. I felt the medical system was broken back then, and it seems even less functional now, with higher rates of burnout, dropout and staff shortages nationally. As a result of a lack of resources, it feels impossible to provide the care to our communities expected of us, making our work challenging and disheartening. Until all stakeholders acknowledge the systemic issues faced by our workforce, service outcomes and physician well-being may not improve...

The changing phenotype of coronarvirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may quickly render guideline-recommended interventions obsolete. We developed a 40-question clinician survey in consultation with the Australasian COVID-19 Trial site investigators. The survey was designed to assess clinician perceptions of the current treatment strategies and future research priorities in the management of non-critically ill patients admitted to hospital with SARS-CoV-2 infection. There were 84 complete responses from predominantly Australian and New Zealand clinicians...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is associated with an increased incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE), approximately 10%. We performed a systematic review to evaluate the efficacy and safety of prophylactic anticoagulation in patients with NS. METHODS: Studies evaluating prophylactic anticoagulation in NS were identified by an electronic search of MEDLINE and EMBASE databases until December 2021. Weighted mean proportion and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) of thromboembolic and haemorrhagic events were calculated using a fixed-effects and a random-effects model...
