concern and stress. Staff mention involvement of local support organisations, availability of a support network for the person with a disability and timely relevant training as factors supporting implementation. Staff also highlight logistical challenges in support needs in an individualised way including, for example, responding to individual expectations, and socio-demographic differences.

by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 9 OTPs can exist in multiple settings including intensive outpatient programs, residential programs, and hospital settings. OTPs are highly regulated, with requirements that patients receive psychosocial supports, complete frequent urine drug tests, and receive a limited number of take-home medications (thereby requiring frequent visits). 4 As of 2018, VHA operated 32 OTPs nationwide, but also contracts with an unknown number of OTPs

sequencing in a ‘lab-on-a-chip’ format are expected to be used to diagnose infections rapidly in a universal test requiring only limited laboratory space and operational training. ?

Characteristics in terms of the regularity or irregularity are helpful. The duration of individual episodes may help in terms of differentiation.

public ACOs have been largely stewarded by the Centre for Medicare and Medicaid. Beneficiaries are attributed to public ACOs based on being a Medicare beneficiary that also meets an agreed-upon definition, typically reliant on seeking a certain amount of care from providers included in the ACO.(3) However, providers attached to the ACO may also be delivering care to non-ACO beneficiaries. ACOs are reimbursed using shared-savings arrangements which are outlined in a shared-savings contract between (...) the payer (in the public system this is Medicare or Medicaid, and in the commercial, a private insurer) and the ACO. The shared savings contract defines the terms of the arrangement including a common understanding of the baseline cost of care from which improvements are benchmarked, as well as the extent of risk taken on by the ACO.(3) Providers attached to the ACO have been traditionally reimbursed for their services using traditional fee-for-service payments, although this is increasingly shifting

(1B) We suggest that, when the true, reference serum creatinine (SCr) is uncertain, the presence of an active episode of AKI occurring in secondary care can be inferred from frequent SCr testing (e.g. at 12 and 24 hours after the index value).

Recognition of the patient at risk of AKI Guideline 2.1 - Adults and Paediatrics (unless otherwise stated) We recommend that: ? patients at risk of AKI should be identified by the most appropriate risk factor profile (...) for that population or, where no specific risk factor profile exists, through clinical judgement and recognition of generic risk factors for AKI; in this way, appropriate preventative measures may be instituted as early as possible (1C) ? in-patients deemed at high risk of AKI should be closely monitored for AKI, particularly if there has been a new exposure.
