#1
Sonya Chelvanayagam, Janet James
Diabulimia has become a common term used to describe a condition when a person with type 1 diabetes has an eating disorder. The individual may omit or restrict their insulin dose to lose/control weight. Evidence suggests that as many as 20% of women with type 1 diabetes may have this condition. The serious acute and long-term complications of hyperglycaemia are well documented. Detection of this condition is challenging and health professionals need to be vigilant in assessing reasons for variable glycaemic control and weight changes...

Diana Comerford, Raakhee Shah
Ambulatory care (AC) is an approach within which inpatient chemotherapy regimens and supportive care are delivered in an outpatient service. Patients receive their treatments and supportive care daily in AC and stay at a nearby hotel or their home, rather than in an inpatient bed. A systematic literature search found a growing amount of literature on AC and the specific regimens used. However, little was found on AC with regard to the patient experience, safety, the benefits and challenges of running an AC service...

#11
Mel Aubin, Dominic Egan
Health and wellbeing education programmes, as part of the recovery package, are now recommended for all cancer patients on completion of treatment. There is limited evidence to determine whether such programmes improve the quality of life (QoL) for cancer survivors. The purpose of the systematic review was to synthesise the available research and provide recommendations for practice and education programme delivery. A critical appraisal and narrative synthesis of eligible randomised controlled trials showed that there was a small mean percentage difference in reported QoL for cancer survivors who participated in an education programme (8%) over those who received usual care alone (7%)...

Sandy Rolfe, Fiona Paul
The assessment, care and management of patients requiring oxygen therapy are key aspects of a nurse's role. Although oxygen therapy is an important treatment for many clinical conditions, it carries risks and complications; therefore, nurses and other health professionals have a responsibility to ensure safe and effective practice along with maintaining and developing their knowledge and skills in this therapy. The relevant aspects of physiology and pathophysiology were explored and discussed in part one of this article ( Rolfe and Paul, 2018 )...

This article critically compares transformational leadership and ethical leadership. It discusses the differences, similarities, weaknesses and strengths of the two styles. The importance of strong leadership in meeting an array of challenges and changes occurring in the NHS is highlighted. The article explores the influence of transformational and ethical leadership styles on the role of nurse leaders, particularly those in mental health, and also the influence of emotional intelligence in leadership. Over the last five decades, there has been a transformation in mental health, but more needs to be done to ensure everyone can access high-quality care when they need it...

Mel Burden, Melanie Thornton
Surgical site infection (SSI), which can range from superficial infection to life-threatening problems, puts extra strain on healthcare resources and can have a significant impact on patient quality of life. The majority of SSIs are preventable, with different members of the multidisciplinary team (MDT) playing their part at every stage of the patient journey from preoperative assessment to post-discharge follow up. Effective communication and cooperation between members of the MDT is key. This article provides an overview of the input at different stages along the patient journey...

The treatment of coronary artery disease has seen rapid change following the invention of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Since its introduction and widespread adoption for the treatment of coronary artery disease, efforts have been underway to minimise both the acute and long-term complications associated with the procedures, resulting in varying degrees of success over the years. These measures have taken many forms, from the adjunctive drug treatment regimen that patients receive before, during and after procedures to the actual mechanical intervention to the vessels themselves...
