Funded by a $2.45 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Connected Emergency Care (CEC) Patient Safety Learning Lab at Johns Hopkins will use systems engineering methods to reduce health and financial harm for ED patients, with an initial focus on patients with lower respiratory...
The goal of this project is to design radiation treatment plans that deliver a high enough radiation dose to the tumors that eradicate cancer cells, but still spares healthy tissue as much as possible....
Older patients are highly susceptible to the extreme physiological stresses of major surgery and the harmful effects of post-surgical bed rest. Preliminary studies show that physical conditioning prior to surgery, often called prehabilitation, can provide significant benefit to patients including reduced complications, shorter recoveries, and lower costs. However, results have...
