In spite of the dramatic improvement of the long-term prognosis of inflammatory arthritic conditions, patients living with arthritis remain more likely to have a shorter lifespan in contrast to the age-matched population without arthritis. This high incidence of morbidity-mortality has been attributed to an increased prevalence of comorbidities, particularly cardiovascular disease, infections, and the development of malignant space-occupying lesions. In spite of the published guidelines highlighting the importance of comorbidity assessment and management, implementing these recommendations in standard clinical practice remains a challenge for the treating rheumatologists and rheumatology nurse specialists...

Jo Riley, Phillip Kr├╝ger
Inhaled therapies play a central role in the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); however, studies indicate that many patients do not use their inhaled medication as directed, resulting in decreased medication delivery and suboptimal disease control. Key factors that should be considered when evaluating whether patients are achieving optimal outcomes with inhaled therapies are: if patients are using a correct inhalation technique; if patients have adequate dexterity to use the prescribed inhaler; if patients have sufficient inspiratory flow rate to achieve adequate lung deposition (for dry powder inhalers); and if the inhaler is accepted by the patient...

The prompt assessment of patients as fit for photopheresis is imperative to ensure delivery of a safe and efficient service. Before January 2015 the photopheresis unit was reliant on patients contacting the department directly to cancel their appointment if they were unwell or were suffering from any pre-defined exclusion criteria. Methods to reduce the number of cancellations and patients arriving unwell were therefore examined. The authors combined aspects of patient pre-assessment with telephone triage to develop a system that could provide better care and improve the use of resources within the department...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to examine perceived barriers to assessment of delirium for critical care nurses, and the impact of education on their knowledge and practice. BACKGROUND: Delirium is a significant problem in critical care, leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Many authors have found variations in assessment by critical care nurses, but there has been limited analysis of the reasons for this. Education on the topic improves knowledge and practice, but the best approach has not been examined...

People with Asperger's syndrome/high functioning autism (AS/HFA) are just as likely to experience the full range of health conditions and needs as 'neurotypicals', people who do not have AS/HFA. However, many people with AS/HFA fall between the cracks of health service design and provision as they do not receive support from learning disabilities or mental health services. This article highlights the need for a comprehensive review of healthcare provision, led by people on the autism spectrum.

An evaluative study aimed to capture the 'mentor voice' and provide an insight into the mentoring role from the perspective of the nurse mentor. Participants from each of the four fields of nursing practice were asked to comment on the satisfying and frustrating aspects of their mentoring role. The narrative data gleaned from the evaluation were qualitatively analysed and subsequently organised into key themes around the student-mentor relationship and the clinical environment. Given that the landscape of nurse education is set to change, in terms of new standards from the professional bodies and the political drivers, not to mention the changing profile of the student nurse, it is hoped that the findings may help to shape the relationship between the mentor, the student and the higher education institution...

This article explores the experiences of undergraduate healthcare students within interprofessional education (IPE) using a qualitative research study. The motive to undertake this study was as a result of mixed evaluations of IPE sessions. The study aimed to analyse student experiences of IPE, and as a result provide greater insight into how this type of education could be enhanced. Participants were selected through voluntary recruitment and data were collected using a focus group involving 12 participants who responded...

Diabetes mellitus (type 1) is an autoimmune condition leading to absolute insulin deficiency resulting in hyperglycaemia and its associated manifestations. It is the most common type of diabetes seen in children, characterised by the 4Ts (toilet, thinner, thirsty, tired). The signs and symptoms can sometimes be non-specific and a delay or missed diagnosis may be catastrophic to the health of the child. Children with an established diagnosis of diabetes often present to the health service with issues such as hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia, or diabetic ketoacidosis...
