The use of video job-aids to improve the quality of seasonal malaria chemoprevention delivery

In partnership with 13 National Malaria Control Programmes in West and Central Africa, Scott et al developed a user-friendly training video to support safe delivery of seasonal malaria chemoprevention during COVID-19. The use of the video to SMC providers was evaluated through a case study in Guinea and an online workshop with the programme coordinators.

Emulation of epidemics via Bluetooth-based virtual safe virus spread: Experimental setup, software, and data

This paper describes the Safe Blues Android app experimental setup and a currently running experiment at the University of Auckland City Campus. This experiment is designed to evaluate how physical interactions over time and between individuals affect the spread of epidemics by spreading multiple virtual safe ‘virus strands’ via Bluetooth based on the subjects’ unobserved social and physical proximity.

Monitoring chronic inflammatory musculoskeletal diseases mixing virtual and face-to-face assessments - results of the digireuma study

In rheumatology, the use of mobile applications provides an opportunity to improve disease management through the collection of large amounts of data. Here, the research team presents the development and implementation of a mobile solution and a hybrid care model using electronic patient-reported-outcomes (ePROs) to monitor disease activity, flares and problems with the medication in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis.

Identifying and analyzing sepsis states: A retrospective study on patients with sepsis in ICUs

Sepsis may be misdiagnosed if a patient is not thoroughly assessed or the symptoms are misinterpreted, which can lead to serious health complications or even death. To improve understanding of disease progression, this work identified distinct states in sepsis in terms of their extremal clinical manifestations, also known as archetypes. Six states were identified, each characterized by a unique set of pathological responses that can be mapped back to organ function(s), along with an association between patient attributes and sepsis states.
