Commonwealth Games events today including Laura Kenny and Alex Yee in action

Commonwealth Games events today including Laura Kenny and Alex Yee in action

Laura Kenny, Alex Yee and James Wilby are among the Tokyo medallists targeting the podium as the Commonwealth Games get underway in Birmingham on Friday.

Wilby will be looking to kickstart England’s gold rush in the pool as he defends his men’s 200 metres breaststroke title. Scotland’s Ross Murdoch, who finished runner-up to Wilby on the Gold Coast four years ago, may have other ideas. Birkenhead’s Freya Anderson is in the women’s 200m freestyle alongside Olympic champion Ariarne Titmus, while Wales’ Dan Jervis is in the men’s 400m freestyle.

Kenny will be in action when the track cycling gets under way at the Lee Valley Velodrome in London, racing alongside Josie Knight, Maddie Leech and Grace Lister in the women’s team pursuit. And husband Jason will be coaching as Ryan Owens, Joe Truman and Hamish Turnbull chase gold in the men’s team sprint.

Birmingham-born Joe Fraser, the former world champion on parallel bars, will lead England’s bid to retain their men’s team title at the NEC on a day that also doubles as individual qualifications. Experienced duo Frank Baines and Hamish Carter will hope to steer Scotland into at least the silver medal position, while Northern Ireland’s Rhys McClenaghan attempts to qualify on pommel.

Yee is a big favourite to build on his silver medal from the Tokyo Olympics as he stars in the men’s triathlon. The outcome of the women’s event is far less cut and dried with Georgia Taylor-Brown, like Yee a double medallist in Japan, facing stiff competition from former world champion Non Stanford, who is representing Wales, and another world champion in Bermuda’s Flora Duffy.

England’s bid to retain the netball title they won so thrillingly on the Gold Coast kicks off with a Group B game against Trinidad and Tobago. Featuring a sizeable contingent of players who were present on the Gold Coast, Jess Thirlby’s side are full of confidence, but are sure to have to overcome perennial favourites Australia and New Zealand once again.

JAMA Study: U.S. Hospital Adverse Events Drop Significantly – UConn Today

JAMA Study: U.S. Hospital Adverse Events Drop Significantly - UConn Today

The largest medical record-based study ever of adverse events suffered by hospitalized patients in the U.S., published in the July 12 issue of JAMA, reports a significant decrease in the rate of adverse events over the last decade. The study findings hold promise for both the safety of patients and the effectiveness of hospital patient safety initiatives.

In this study, the de-identified medical records of 244,542 patients across 3,156 U.S. hospitals over 10 years were examined. Researchers used the Medicare Patient Safety Monitoring System (MPSMS), a surveillance system managed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) designed to assess 21 in-hospital adverse events in patients with the key conditions of acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, pneumonia, major surgical procedures, and all other conditions. Relative risks were adjusted for patient age, sex, race ethnicity, specific comorbidities, and each hospital’s characteristics.

The researchers report the rate of adverse events declined significantly between 2010 and 2019 in patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia, and major surgical procedures. Some of the adverse events captured included adverse drug events, hospital-acquired infections, procedural complications, pressure ulcers and falls.

Dr. Mark Metersky (Tina Encarnacion/UConn Health)

“Our study is the biggest and most comprehensive assessment of adverse events in patients hospitalized in the U.S. that is based on detailed analysis of the medical record as opposed to billing data, which can be misleading,” said co-author Dr. Mark Metersky, professor of medicine at UConn School of Medicine and chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at UConn Health. “There has been an improvement in patient safety in U.S. hospitals during the 10 years we studied. Our data shows that the major safety improvement efforts made by our country and our hospitals seems to be paying off.”

Researchers evaluated the in-hospital trends in the number of adverse events per 1,000 hospitalizations. For example, adverse events among patients who experienced heart attacks declined significantly over a decade from 218 in 2010 to 139 per 1,000 discharges in 2019; in heart failure patients, adverse events dropped from 168 to 116; in pneumonia patients from 195 to 119; and in major surgery patients, from 204 to 130. However, for those with other conditions there was no observed change in the number of adverse events in the same time period; however, reductions were seen in the first four groups and this fifth group as well when comorbidities and other factors, such as the age of patients, were taken into account.

Interestingly, the researchers observed larger improvements in the adverse event rate in older patients than younger ones, and there were few apparent differences in risk based on a patient’s race, ethnicity, sex or region of care in the U.S. All groups saw similar reductions. However, those patients who experienced adverse events throughout the period of study had substantially higher mortality rates and longer lengths of stays than those that did not experience an adverse event.

This study was funded by the AHRQ and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). At AHRQ, the collaborative research work was led by Noel Eldridge, who was the first author on the paper. Metersky from UConn is the clinical lead for the MPSMS and was a co-author along with a collaboration of researchers from Yale, CMS, the Federal ONC, Harvard, and others.

Macro events drive interest in reshoring, nearshoring production – Furniture Today

Macro events drive interest in reshoring, nearshoring production - Furniture Today

Rosemary Coates said the reshoring movement offers more security in a frenetic supply chain environment.

By Powell Slaughter, Contributing Editor

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Changes posing risks to the global supply chain during the past 10 years are spurring moves to bring manufacturing back to the United States, or at least North America.

That was the take during a presentation at the AHFA Logistics Conference by Rosemary Coates, president of Blue Silk Consulting and executive director of the Reshoring Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization she founded in 2014 focusing on expansion of U.S. manufacturing. She discussed the potential opportunities for furniture manufacturers looking to produce goods and source materials closer to home.

Coates called the 2012 U.S. presidential election, when both major candidates claimed commitment to bringing jobs back to the United States, as the catalyst of the reshoring movement.

Since then, macro events have spurred the trend. Examples cited include geo-politics, China-bashing in America and a corresponding reaction from Xu Xinping in China; global counterfeiting of products; lean manufacturing processes such as just-in-time inventories at greater risk to long supply chains; the rise of ethno-centrism; trade wars including the Trump administration tariffs; and now the lingering coronavirus pandemic.

She noted that several industries already face critical shortages of rare earths and neon gas (electronics and semi-conductors), and pharmaceutical building blocks that have been sourced abroad for years due to lower operations costs in places such as China. Coates said rare earths are found worldwide but are more expensive to extract here.

“In the U.S., we tend to let the market rule, but if we can’t make our own building blocks for pharmaceuticals, we can’t make antibiotics in North America,” she said, if those products are delayed or not available via the global supply chain.

Furniture makers have been plagued by similar shortages of mechanisms, kits, textiles and other inputs sourced offshore during the past two years.

Reshoring takes more than just shifting production to make economic sense, and Coates offered examples of what works and what doesn’t.

General Electric engineers, for example, developed a specific product for U.S. manufacture — the Geospring on-demand water heater targeting a higher end market — that commanded a price making its more expensive domestic production feasible. The company re-opened GE Appliance Park in Lousville, Ky., after a 20-year closure, utilizing new automated and highly engineered production lines.

“They put 4,000 people back to work in Louisville by developing a product that can be manufactured in the U.S.,” Coates said.

She offered the case of Otis Elevator as a reshoring failure. The company brought a production line back from Mexico in 2012 when it opened a new plant in Florence, S.C.

“It was highly automated, but they couldn’t find skilled workers,” Coates said, adding there was no partnering with local schools and colleges for worker training. It didn’t help that the opening was concurrent with an ERP implementation. Production delays cost Otis $60 million in lost business.

“If you are going to reshore, you need to know what sort of products you can make, who’s going to run it and what skills you’re going to need,” Coates said.
