BACKGROUND: Most surgical wounds heal by primary intention, that is to say, the edges of the wound are brought together with sutures, staples, adhesive glue or clips. However, some wounds may be left open to heal (if there is a risk of infection, or if there has been significant tissue loss), and are known as 'surgical wounds healing by secondary intention'. They are estimated to comprise approximately 28% of all surgical wounds and are frequently complex to manage. However, they are under researched and little is known of their impact on patients' lives...

BACKGROUND: A key component of the delirium management is prevention and early detection. OBJECTIVE: To develop an automated delirium risk assessment system (Auto-DelRAS) that automatically alerts health care providers of an intensive care unit (ICU) patient's delirium risk based only on data collected in an electronic health record (EHR) system, and to evaluate the clinical validity of this system. DESIGN: Cohort and system development designs were used...

BACKGROUND: Decision makers are searching for models to redesign home care and to organize health care in a more sustainable way. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to identify and characterize home care models within and across European countries by means of structural characteristics and care processes at the policy and the organization level. DATA SOURCES: At the policy level, variables that reflected variation in health care policy were included based on a literature review on the home care policy for older persons in six European countries: Belgium, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Italy, and the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers of people with dementia have significant unmet health needs. There is a lack of research that differentiates between the needs that are specifically relevant to partner and offspring caregivers. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the health needs of partner and offspring caregivers of older people with dementia, including the barriers they experience in meeting their needs. METHOD: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 24 family caregivers of community-dwelling people with dementia...

REVIEW
C L Downey, W Tahir, R Randell, J M Brown, D G Jayne
BACKGROUND: Early warning scores are widely used to identify deteriorating patients. Whilst their ability to predict clinical outcomes has been extensively reviewed, there has been no attempt to summarise the overall strengths and limitations of these scores for patients, staff and systems. This review aims to address this gap in the literature to guide improvements for the optimization of patient safety. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted of MEDLINE(®), PubMed, CINAHL and The Cochrane Library in September 2016...

BACKGROUNDS: Costs of intensive care reach up to 30% of the hospital budget with workforce expenses being substantial. Determining proper nurse-patient ratio is necessary for optimizing patients' health related outcomes and hospitals' cost effective functioning. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate nurses' workload using Nine Equivalents of Nursing Manpower Use Score and Nursing Activities Score scoring systems while assessing correlation between both scores and the severity of illness measured by Simplified Acute Physiology Score II...

BACKGROUND: Despite prevention efforts, the incidence of sexually transmitted infection among HIV-positive men who have sex with men remains high, which is indicative of unchanged sexual risk behaviour. Discussing sexual risk behaviour has been shown to help prevent sexually transmitted infections among HIV-positive men who have sex with men. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to identify factors that influence whether - and how - specialised HIV nurses discuss sexual risk behaviour with HIV-positive men who have sex with men...

N Campling, A Richardson, M Mulvey, M Bennett, B Johnston, S Latter
BACKGROUND: Pain is a frequently reported symptom by patients approaching the end of life and well-established that patients and carers hold fears relating to opioids, and experience side effects related to their use. The management of medicines is intrinsic to achieving effective pain relief. The concept of self-management support whilst well characterised in the context of chronic illness has not been elaborated with respect to end of life care. AIM: To identify patient, carer and professional views on the concept of self-management support at end of life, specifically in relation to analgesia and related medicines (for side-effect management) in order to describe, characterise and explain self-management support in this context...

Mieko Omura, Jane Maguire, Tracy Levett-Jones, Teresa Elizabeth Stone
BACKGROUND: Communication errors have a negative impact on patient safety. It is therefore essential that healthcare professionals have the skills and confidence to speak up assertively when patient safety is at risk. Although the facilitators to and barriers of assertive communication have been the subject of previous reviews, evidence regarding the effectiveness of interventions designed to enhance assertive communication is lacking. Thus, this paper reports the findings from a systematic review of the effectiveness of assertiveness communication training programs for healthcare professionals and students...

BACKGROUND: Pain on the day after caesarean section is often treated with controlled-release oxycodone to supplement the decline in analgesia from intrathecal opioids. Evidence suggests that caesarean birth is a biopsychosocial experience where a comprehensive approach is needed that promotes control and participation in pain management. OBJECTIVES: This study compared immediate-release oxycodone integrated with supportive educational strategies to controlled-release oxycodone...

BACKGROUND: The creation of advanced nursing roles in diabetes management, with specific skills such as nurse prescribing, has resulted in nurses taking on roles that have traditionally been associated with doctors. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the effectiveness of nurse-led clinics, in which nurses were involved in prescribing, on haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) among people with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: We systematically searched the literature, Medline, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), EMBASE and Allied Health Literature database guide (CINAHL) databases, to identify randomised controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the effect of nurse prescribers on HbA1c...

REVIEW
Virginia Jones, Marie Crowe
BACKGROUND: The increasing prevalence of diabetes is well-documented along with the findings that some ethnic minorities have a higher prevalence than non-minority individuals. Along with possible biological differences between ethnicities, access to economic, social, cultural and symbolic capital may impact on the success of managing type-2 diabetes. OBJECTIVES: To examine how people from ethnic minorities in Western countries describe their experiences of managing type-2 diabetes mellitus...

BACKGROUND: Diminished social networks are common in psychosis but few studies have measured these comprehensively and prospectively to determine how networks and support evolve during the early phase. There is little information regarding perceived support in the early phase of illness. The aim of this study was to describe social support, networks and perceived satisfaction, explore the clinical correlates of these outcomes and examine whether phases of untreated psychosis are linked with social network variables to determine potential opportunities for intervention...
