Interdisciplinary rounds (IDRs) in the intensive care unit (ICU) are increasingly recommended to support quality improvement and to reduce preventable patient harm and conflicts. However, there are no evidenced based studies available about how to perform these rounds in an optimal way. Therefore, the authors developed, validated, and applied a scoring instrument (the IDR Assessment Scale) with quality indicators to assess the quality of IDRs in ICUs. In order to improve the quality of IDRs, the authors developed a leadership training for the leading physicians during rounds. The training consists of a 1-day training session in a simulation environment and workplace-based feedback sessions. The 10 essential quality indicators (which were derived from the validated IDR Assessment Scale) were used as a checklist. This leadership training improved the quality of the performed IDRs in the ICUs. This book describes our IDR Assessment Scale (including the manual), the 10-items-checklist and leadership training (including the training scenario). The aim of this book is to support ICU care professionals and ICU-managers for the ultimate goal of improved safety of patient care.
Speech quality plays key role in defining the consumer's perception of the overall Quality of Service offered to him by his telecommunications service provider. For this reason, it is essential for service providers to have the ability of online assessment of the perceived quality of speech during live calls. New technologies constantly emerge in the world of telecommunications, and along with their benefits come new types of potential degradations to call quality, which need to be monitored for, discovered, and quantified in a perceptually meaningful way. This book presents a new, non-intrusive speech quality assessment model. Detection of no specific type of degradation is performed by the model, only the overall pleasantness and intelligibility is assessed. This design choice was made in order to create a quality assessment method that can capably assess the quality of speech, under never-before-seen degradation types. Performance of the proposed model is shown to be competitive with those of current state-of-the-art quality assessment models. This book should be useful to any researcher in the field of speech, as well as professionals in the telecommunications industry.
