Reducing discard is important for the US transplantation system because nearly 20% of the deceased donor kidneys are discarded. We use logistic regression that includes cold ischemia time, Kidney Donor Risk Index, and other covariates selected from literature.
In interviews with clinicians, they expressed barriers to delivering chronic kidney disease care. To address barriers, clinicians outlined intervention points, such as building models, and structural triggers to identify patients who may be appropriate for palliative care.
Using large-scale international workplace survey data, this study assessed the burden of nocturia in the workplace by investigating associations between nocturia and subjective well-being, work engagement and productivity.
Nocturia is a troublesome lower urinary tract condition that causes people to wake up two or more times a night to empty their bladder. Researchers calculated the overall economic cost associated with nocturia in a working-age population across six countries.
Frequent visits to the bathroom at night could cost the U.S. economy $44.4 billion a year. Waking up more than twice a night due to nocturia, a health condition that affects the lower urinary tract, can have a detrimental effect on a person's wellbeing and productivity at work, which in turn has an impact on a country's GDP.
Nocturia, a urinary tract condition causing numerous night-time bathroom visits, can have negative impacts on sleep, wellbeing and productivity. Our results show a set of associations between nocturia and a range of conditions, outcomes and factors.
The authors conducted eight focus groups of female UCPPS (interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome) patients at four sites from the MAPP Research Network to explore the full spectrum of flares and their impact on patients' lives.
