The current integrative literature review explored the impact of interactive delirium care education in facilitating knowledge transfer to health care practitioners and improving health outcomes for older adults. Academic databases, including MEDLINE, CINAHL, and Web of Science, were searched using the terms delirium and simulation or interactive education. Selected articles were analyzed using Critical Appraisals Skills Programme tools. Twenty studies were reviewed and three themes generated to explain the current understanding of the impact of interactive delirium care education on outcomes for: (a) individuals with delirium; (b) organizational health care; and (c) health care practitioners...

The need to provide evidence-based, person-centered care for long-term care (LTC) residents, which often include individuals with dementia, has led to a surge of interest in the implementation of individualized music (IM) programs. An exploratory study was conducted over a 6-month period using the Promoting Action on Research in Health Systems (PARiHS) framework to examine the implementation of an IM program with 19 residents in a LTC facility. All residents using IM had the device available at the end of the program, and 53% received IM at least two times per week...

Nighttime agitation, sleep disturbances, and urinary incontinence (UI) occur frequently in individuals with dementia and can add additional burden to family caregivers, although the co-occurrence of these symptoms is not well understood. The purpose of the current study was to determine the feasibility and acceptability of using passive body sensors in community-dwelling individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) by family caregivers and the correlates among these distressing symptoms. A single-group, descriptive design with convenience sampling of participants with AD and their family caregivers was undertaken to address the study aims...

Delivering person-centered care (PCC) is no longer an option for nursing homes (NH) that receive funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. NH staff need evidence-based protocols to guide efforts in honoring preferred choices of residents, especially those that are perceived to be risky. The Rothschild Care Planning Process for Resident Choice was created to honor such choices. The current article provides a case exemplar to demonstrate the use of the Rothschild Care Planning Process for Resident Choice with one NH resident who was perceived by staff to be making a risky choice...

Medical and psychiatric comorbidity in individuals with dementia is often associated with serious adverse health outcomes. Using a convenience sample of 76 residents with dementia in Jordanian nursing homes, the current study aimed to examine the relationship among comorbid burden, ability to verbally self-report symptoms, severity of dementia, and patient outcomes of pain and agitation. Comorbid burden and ability to verbally self-report symptoms were found to be significant predictors of patient outcomes of pain and agitation...

The purpose of the current article is to describe the use of photovoice with individuals from vulnerable population groups. Ten African American men and women ages 66 to 72 with heart failure from three different low income public housing facilities were recruited for participation in a qualitative photovoice project. Participants were given 5 weeks to take photographs of images that represented facilitators of and barriers to engaging in self-care behaviors. Each week, participants met as a group to discuss the photographs and their meanings to other participants...

Adults who complete an advance directive (AD) are not consistently offered information about the risks, benefits, or alternatives (RBA) of the life-sustaining medical procedures addressed on standardized forms. The current article describes a new patient-centered nurse-supported advance care planning (NSACP) intervention focused on providing information about RBA of life-sustaining procedures. Fifty participants (mean age = 50.26 years) at a Veterans Affairs medical center were randomized to the NSACP intervention or a comparison condition...

Elder abuse occurs in all practice settings and presents in various forms. The purpose of the current evidence-based practice guideline is to facilitate health care professionals' assessment of older adults in domestic and institutional settings who are at risk for elder abuse, and to recommend interventions to reduce the incidence of mistreatment. Limited research has been conducted on interventions to prevent or reduce elder abuse. Research is available on the prevalence of elder abuse and indicators of individuals who may be more susceptible to harm...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a distressing respiratory disease that may greatly impact a patient's quality of life. Although many treatment options exist, the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease Guidelines outline management strategies based on severity of daily symptoms and exacerbations. Although it is important to weigh the risks and benefits of medication use, involvement of patients in their overall care plan is imperative to optimal outcomes. According to recent studies, the prevalence of COPD in older adults is increasing, along with the complexity of care due to comorbidities, drug interactions, and side effects...

Achieving better fall risk management is an integral component of quality home care. The current qualitative study uncovers the challenges and opportunities of home health agencies (HHAs) in achieving better fall risk management. A secondary document analysis was adopted to learn from rich contextual information in fall incident reports recorded in a HHA. Poor engagement of patients and caregivers was a contributing factor in many fall incidents. Patients often fell as a result of not understanding or accepting their physical limitations...

Kalisha Bonds, Karen S Lyons
Dementia is a predominant problem in older adults, affecting African American individuals at higher rates than other ethnic groups; yet, African American older adults use fewer formal services. To identify factors influencing formal service use by African American individuals with dementia and their caregivers, an integrative review of the literature was performed using four databases from 1990 to July 2017. Fourteen articles (nine quantitative, five qualitative) describing formal service use were included in the review...

Limited research exists assessing problem-solving capabilities among caregivers of individuals with memory loss using a validated instrument. To address this gap, the current study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Problem Solving Inventory (PSI) using data at baseline and 8 weeks from a randomized controlled trial among caregivers (N = 78) of community-dwelling individuals with memory loss. Participants were mainly White (85.9%), female (71.8%), and on average age 66.5. Cronbach's alphas ranged from 0...

Resident-to-resident elder mistreatment (R-REM) occurs frequently in long-term services and support settings. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the effect of a R-REM training program for nursing and other frontline staff on resident falls and injuries in a cluster randomized trial of units within four nursing homes. Interview and observational data from a sample of 1,201 residents (n = 600 and n = 601 in the usual care and intervention groups, respectively) and staff were collected at baseline and 6 and 12 months...

In previous work, the current researchers examined attitudes and experiences of certified nursing assistants (CNAs) providing end-of-life (EOL) care in an assisted living facility (ALF). Results showed that 70% of participating CNAs felt unprepared to provide EOL care, largely due to not having received prior EOL care education within their schools or workplaces. Therefore, the goal of the current study was to implement and evaluate EOL and postmortem education to ALF CNAs. A focus group of 14 CNAs within an ALF was provided EOL education pertaining to the physiological and psychological changes observed in patients nearing EOL and postmortem care...
