C Stewart, S Bench
Quality improvement (QI) is a way through which health care delivery can be made safer and more effective. Various models of quality improvement methods exist in health care today. These models can help guide and manage the process of introducing changes into clinical practice. The aim of this project was to implement the use of a delirium assessment tool into three adult critical care units within the same hospital using a QI approach. The objective was to improve the identification and management of delirium...

BACKGROUND: Errors tend to be multifactorial and so learning from nurses' experiences with them would be a powerful tool toward promoting patient safety. AIM: To identify the nature of nursing errors and their contributing factors in intensive care units (ICUs). METHODS: A semi-structured interview with 112 critical care nurses to elicit the reports about their encountered errors followed by a content analysis. RESULTS: A total of 300 errors were reported...

Timely and adequate nutrition improves health outcomes for the critically ill patient. Despite clinical guidelines recommending early oral nutrition, survivors of critical illness experience significant nutritional deficits. This cohort study evaluates the oral nutrition intake in intensive care unit (ICU) patients who have experienced recent critical illness. The oral nutrition intake of a convenience sample of ICU patients post-critical illness was observed during a 1-month period. Data pertaining to both the amount of oral nutrition intake and factors impacting optimal oral nutrition intake were collected and analysed...

BACKGROUND: The shortage of critical care and specialist nurses has been an ongoing issue for many decades. Although all areas of nursing are affected, critical care areas are especially vulnerable to recruitment and retention problems. High nursing turnover in critical care areas is evident; however, research into the factors that influence nurses' intentions to leave adult critical care areas is limited. AIM: To explore factors that may influence nurses' intentions to leave adult critical care areas...

REVIEW
Michelle C Guilhermino, Kerry J Inder, Deborah Sundin
BACKGROUND: Intensive care unit nurses are critical for managing mechanical ventilation. Continuing education is essential in building and maintaining nurses' knowledge and skills, potentially improving patient outcomes. AIMS: The aim of this study was to determine whether continuing education programmes on invasive mechanical ventilation involving intensive care unit nurses are effective in improving patient outcomes. METHODS: Five electronic databases were searched from 2001 to 2016 using keywords such as mechanical ventilation, nursing and education...

BACKGROUND: Junctional ectopic tachycardia is a serious complication of surgery for paediatric congenital heart disease. R-wave synchronized atrial (AVT) pacing, an innovative temporary pacing technique, restores atrioventricular synchrony in these patients. The method is highly effective but technically complex. A standardized training model exists for doctors but not for paediatric intensive care nurses. AIMS: This study seeks to evaluate whether a standardized programme involving simulation and vignettes increases knowledge of AVT pacing and accuracy of its documentation, as well as recognition and management of specific complications...
