Grading dermatologic adverse events of cancer treatments: Dermatologic adverse events to cancer therapies have become more prevalent and may to lead to dose modifications or discontinuation of life-saving or prolonging treatments.
This has resulted in a new collaboration between oncologists and dermatologists, which requires accurate cataloging and grading of side effects. A proper understanding of this standardized classification system is essential for dermatologists to properly communicate with all physicians caring for patients with cancer. Published by Mosby, Inc. Integrating the patient’s perspective has become an increasingly important component of adverse event reporting. This instrument has been translated into German and linguistically validated; however, its quantitative measurement properties have not been evaluated.
Item quality was assessed by analysis of acceptability and comprehensibility. Reliability was evaluated by using Cronbach’s’ alpha and validity by principal components analysis PCAmultitrait-multimethod matrix MTMM and known groups validity techniques.
Participants’ median age was Moreover, construct validity was confirmed by the MTMM: Known groups validity was supported; PRO-CTCAE scores were significantly lower for those with impaired versus preserved health-related quality of life.
This Commentary describes development of the PRO-CTCAE by a group of multidisciplinary investigators and patient representatives and provides an overview of qualitative and quantitative studies of its measurement properties. These items were refined in a cognitive interviewing study among patients on active cancer treatment with diverse educational, racial, and geographic backgrounds. Favorable measurement properties of the items, including construct validity, reliability, responsiveness, and between-mode equivalence, were determined prospectively in a demographically diverse population of patients receiving treatments for many different tumor types.
A software platform was built to administer PRO-CTCAE items classificqtion clinical trial participants via the internet or telephone interactive voice response and was refined through usability testing. Eligible participants could read Claesification and had no clinically significant cognitive impairment. A total of epilepsj At least 1 symptom was reported by of Participants’ median age was 59 years; Adverse event AE reporting in oncology trials is required, but current practice does not directly integrate the child’s voice.
Cognitive interviews with retrospective probing were completed with children in the age groups of, and years. Two rounds of interviews involved 81 children and adolescents and 74 parent-proxies.
Fifteen of the 62 AE terms were revised after Round 1, including refinements to the questions assessing symptom severity. A few AE items assessing rare events were challenging to understand. Common usage of cardiologic anatomical terminology: Terminology and Lexicography have been especially addressed to the Allied Health Sciences regarding discussion of case reports or concerning publication of scientific articles.
The knowledge of Human Anatomy enables the understanding of medical classifiation and the refinement of Medical Terminology makes possible a better anatomicomedical communication in a highly technical level. Most of the scientific publications in both Anatomy and Medicine are found only in English and most of dictionaries or search resources available do not have specificity enough to explain anatomicomedical, terminologicalor lexicographical occurrences. To design and produce classificaiton multilingual terminological dictionary Latin-English-Portuguese-Spanish containing a list of English anatomicomedical terms in common usage in cardiology subspecialties addressed to medical students and professionals, to other allied health sciences professionals, and to translators working in this specific field.
ILAE Classification of the Epilepsies (2017)
Terms, semantical and grammatical components were selected to compose an anatomicocardiological epioepsy. The adequacy to the thematic terminological research requests and the translation reliability level will be settled from the terminology specificity in contrast to the semantics, as well as from a peer survey of the main terms used by national and international experts in specialized journals, Internet sites, claseification from text-books on Anatomy and Cardiology.
The inclusion criteria will be the terms included in the English, Portuguese, and Spanish Terminologia Anatomica – the official terminology of the anatomical sciences; nonofficial technical commonly used terms which classfication to terminology or translation misunderstanding often being a source of confusion.
A table with a sample of the most used anatomical cardiologic terms in English language peer-reviewed journals of cardiology and pediatric and adult thoracic surgery is shown.
The working up of a multilingual terminological dictionary reduces the risk of. A common terminology for the external anatomy of centipedes Chilopoda. Bonato, Lucio; Edgecombe, Gregory D. Abstract A common terminology for the external morphological characters of centipedes Chilopoda is proposed. Terms are selected from the alternatives used in the English literature, preferring those most frequently used or those that have been introduced explicitly.
A total of terms are defined and illustrated, and another ca. Reporting was conducted via wireless tablet computers in clinic waiting areas. Most patients enrolled in a multicenter chemoradiotherapy trial were willing and able to self-report symptomatic AEs at visits using tablet computers. Minimal effort was required by local site staff to support this system.
The observed causes of missing data may be. Common reasons for noncompliance were institutional errors, such as forgetting to provide computers to participants; patients missing clinic visits; Internet connectivity; and patients feeling “too sick.
The observed causes of missing data may be obviated by allowing patients to self-report electronically between. Terminology and reporting criteria for radiofrequency ablation of tumors in the scientific literature: To perform a systematic review of compliance with standardized terminology and reporting criteria for radiofrequency RF tumor ablation, proposed by the International Working Group on Image-Guided Tumor Ablation inin the published reports.
Literature search in the PubMed database was performed using index keywords, PubMed limit system, and eligibility criteria.
The entire content of each article was reviewed to assess the terminology used for procedure terms, imaging findings, therapeutic efficacy, follow-up, and complications. Accuracy of the terminology and the use of alternative terms instead of standard terminology were analyzed.
In addition, disparities in accuracy of terminology in articles according to the medical specialty cclassification the type of radiology journal were evaluated. The overall accuracy of each term showed a tendency to improve over the years. The most commonly used alternative terms for ‘technical classificatipn and ‘local tumor progression’ were ‘complete ablation’ and ‘local tumor recurrence’, respectively.
The accuracy of terminology in articles published in radiology journals was significantly greater than that of terminology in articles published in non-radiology journals, especially in Radiology and The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
The proposal for standardization of terminology and reporting criteria for RF tumor ablation has been gaining support according to the recently published scientific reports, especially in the field of radiology.
Systematic Review of Compliance with Reporting Standards. Objective To perform a systematic review of compliance with standardized iae and reporting criteria for radiofrequency RF tumor ablation, proposed rpilepsy the International Working Group on Image-Guided Tumor Ablation inin the published reports.
Materials and Methods Literature search in the PubMed database was performed using index keywords, PubMed limit system, and eligibility criteria. Conclusion The proposal for standardization of terminology and reporting criteria for RF tumor ablation has been gaining support according to the recently published scientific. Patients’ misunderstanding of common orthopaedic terminology: We investigated Patients’ understanding of orthopaedic terms to identify those words surgeons should make the most pf to explain.
Qualitative and quantitative data were collected using free text boxes for the Patients’ written definitions and multiple choice classifidation MCQs.
Speaking English as a second language was a significant predictive factor for patients who had difficulty with definitions.

There was no significant variation among different age groups. Educating patients in clinic is a routine part of practice.
Longitudinal observational clinical data on pediatric patients in electronic format is becoming widely available. A new era of multi-institutional data networks that study pediatric diseases and outcomes across disparate health delivery models and care settings are also enabling an innovative collaborative rapid improvement paradigm called the Learning Health System.
However, the potential alignment of routine clinical care, observational clinical research, pragmatic clinical trials, and health systems improvement requires a data infrastructure capable of combining information from systems and workflows that historically have been isolated from each other.
One key barrier is the lack of a common terminology that provides uniform definitions and descriptions of clinical observations and data. A well-characterized terminology ensures a common meaning and supports data reuse and integration. A common terminology allows studies to build upon previous findings and to reuse data collection tools and data management processes.
We present the current state of terminology harmonization and describe a governance structure and mechanism for coordinating the development of a common pediatric research terminology that links to clinical terminologies and can be used to align existing terminologies.
By reducing the barriers between clinical care and clinical research, a Learning Health System can leverage and reuse not only its own data resources but also broader extant data resources. Applicability of international consensus terminology and criteria for immune thrombocytopenia to a clinical pediatric population. Since pediatric immune thrombocytopenia ITP is relatively infrequent, comparisons among clinical studies are critical but have previously been limited by differences in terminology.
Inan international working group IWG developed consensus criteria to enhance comparability in future studies in adults and children. We performed a retrospective medical record review of all pediatric ITP patients seen at a single children’s hospital with a first visit between and and applied both historical criteria Hist and IWG criteria IWG ITP criteria to available clinical data.
A striking difference was that overall response to therapies was lower if the criteria IWG were used rather than the criteria Histparticularly for IVIG Only 2 subjects 0. Limitations to applying the criteria IWG included absence of treatment response durations, incomplete definition of pediatric “refractory ITP,” and exclusion of secondary ITP.
Nevertheless, the criteria IWG were more clinically relevant given the reliance on definitions based on bleeding and their ability to be applied prospectively.
The utility of using the criteria IWG within prospective trials remains to be determined. Transcatheter therapy for hepatic malignancy: The field of interventional oncology includes tumor ablation as well as the use of transcatheter therapies such as embolization, chemoembolization, and radioembolization.
Terminology and clzssification standards for tumor ablation have been developed. The development of standardization of terminology and reporting criteria for transcatheter therapies should provide a similar framework to facilitate the clearest communication among investigators and provide the greatest flexibility in comparing established and emerging technologies. An appropriate vehicle for reporting the various aspects of catheter directed therapy is classificstion, including classification of therapies and procedure terms, appropriate descriptors of imaging guidance, and terminology to define imaging and pathologic findings.
Methods for standardizing the reporting of outcomes toxicities, complications, and other important aspects that require attention when reporting clinical results are addressed. It is the intention of the group that adherence to the recommendations will facilitate achievement of the group’s main filetypr The field of interventional oncology with use of image-guided tumor ablation requires standardization of terminology and reporting criteria to facilitate effective communication of ideas and appropriate comparison between treatments fkletype use different technologies, such as chemical ethanol or acetic acid ablation, and thermal therapies, such as radiofrequency RFlaser, microwave, ultrasound, and cryoablation.
This iae provides a framework that will hopefully facilitate the clearest communication between investigators and will provide the greatest flexibility in comparison between the many new, exciting, and emerging technologies.
