Marsha King
This change project was developed in response to the lack of a high-fidelity simulation program at a midwestern university in the United States. The use of clinical simulation as a teaching-and-learning strategy has significantly increased within nursing education. Unlike some colleges, this university had a dedicated simulation laboratory with two high-fidelity simulators; however, there was no clinical simulation program to use this equipment. The expensive simulation equipment sat unused because of the lack of funding for dedicated faculty, lack of a champion to implement, shortage of faculty time, minimal knowledge of the use of high-fidelity simulators, and a lack of curriculum integration...

Static telepathology is one of the telepathology methods, in which the captured images of the slides are transmitted for consultation at a later time. This study aimed to compare the diagnostic accuracy of the conventional pathology and static telepathology systems. Eighty-two cases that had been selected randomly from 4 pathology centers in the city of Kerman were diagnosed by a pathologist, first based on light microscopy and then after 2 months based on static images (2 images per case) captured by a Nikon 50i microscopic camera...

James J Gillespie, Deborah Dunsire, Carolyn Buck Luce
In view of the increasing global importance of women as consumers/patients, employees, employers, and leaders, we discuss 10 best practices for the global health care organizations to attain greater gender parity: (1) make diversity and inclusion (D&I) an essential element of global strategy, (2), tailor global D&I to fit local needs, (3) embed D&I throughout organizations, (4) multiply D&I impact via external partnerships, (5) maximize the role of employee resource groups, (6) maximize the role of diversity councils, (7) leverage D&I for innovation, (8) leverage D&I for business development, (9) engage CEO, and (10) make sharing of D&I best practices a meta best practice...

Wilma Powell Stuart
Increasing numbers of doctoral-prepared nurses are joining interprofessional health care teams. Interestingly, the evolving doctoral programs for nurse leaders can be confusing to other health care professionals. Advanced education for nursing leaders is driven by a growing need for cost-effective implementation of evidence-based practices. Professional nursing organizations and nursing education programs have redefined education to respond to the call for knowledgeable experts to lead evidence-based quality improvements...

Kimberly Walker, Richard Jackson
The purpose of this study was to assess college students' knowledge of oral/oropharyngeal cancer and the relationship of human papillomavirus (HPV) to oropharyngeal cancer. Data were also collected to determine their perceived susceptibility to oropharyngeal cancer and awareness of emotions toward and intentions to receive an oral cancer examination in order to design tailored messages for promoting oropharyngeal cancer prevention on college campuses. Two hundred ten baccalaureate students in nonhealth majors from a public southeastern university were surveyed...

Thorough documentation is essential for hospital reimbursement from payors such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Inconsistencies and incomplete documentation can occur if workflow is not standardized especially in cases with interdisciplinary involvement. Documentation for patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with anesthesia services was examined and revealed an opportunity for improvement to avoid financial losses. A preprocedure checklist to improve documentation and standardize workflow was implemented...

The aim of this qualitative, phenomenological study was to explore the self-care habits of nurses in the hospital setting and how these habits influenced the perception of body image. The nursing profession often requires the nurse to place the health of patients before their own. Very little information is found in the literature regarding the self-care habits of nurses. The data were collected through in-depth interviews with 12 participants who worked as hospital nurses in northern Indiana. The analysis revealed 6 themes in self-care among nurses and how they viewed their bodies...

Problem-based learning (PBL) has become a distinct approach in learning. To assess the effectiveness of PBL in teaching ethics to medical students and the effect it has on their ethical reasoning, we decided to hold a PBL ethics workshop and then evaluate them based on pretest and posttest. This quasi-experimental comparative study in Shiraz University of Medical Sciences was designed based on pretest-posttest nonequivalent groups. After obtaining their consent, 120 health care providers were randomly selected and assigned in 4 groups and then asked to attend the ethics workshop...

In the United States, an estimated 20 million people, or 15% of the population, are currently infected with human papilloma virus (HPV). The prevalence of HPV is increasing in females aged 14 to 24 years. Assessing allied health students' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding HPV was performed using a 34-question survey. The survey was in four sections: general information, measuring knowledge of HPV and the vaccine, HPV vaccine, and HPV screening and diagnosis. Physicians were noted by 31.6% of the participants as the first individual who gave them information about HPV...

The 340B Drug Discount Program required drug manufacturers to provide discounted outpatient drugs to health care organizations serving vulnerable patient populations to allow these institutions to offer more services to more people. As the 340B program expanded, controversy centered on which entities have benefited from the program. Many health care organizations sold 340B drugs to well-insured patients at full price and have thus been financially rewarded. Amendments to the program have permitted 340B providers to use contract pharmacies to dispense 340B medications, furthering the debate over which stakeholders are benefiting from the program...

In 2014, the United States spent approximately $3 trillion on health care. Medicare accounted for $554 billion of these costs, and approximately $60 billion were squandered because of incorrect billing methods, abuse, and fraud. Types of fraud included kickbacks, upcoding, and organized fraudulent crimes. To reduce the financial burden associated with these activities, the United States has created various fraud prevention programs. The purpose of this study was to identify methods of Medicare fraud, examine the various programs implemented by the US government to combat fraud and abuse, and determine the effectiveness of these programs...

Operating rooms (ORs) are an important source of hospital revenue, and utilization rate is a key determinant of OR efficiency. Multiple factors contribute to OR underutilization, and OR managers may have biased views about which factors contribute most to OR underutilization. We examined various factors leading to OR underutilization at one academic tertriary care center.Data were collected retrospectively from over a 12-month period. Contribution to OR underutilization was measured in terms of hours of OR underutilization...

The shortage of nursing professionals in the United States is unquestionable. This shortage, which is predicted to continue into the foreseeable future, is a particularly salient problem within the nursing profession. This is especially true for long-term care facility administrators who not only are faced with the challenge of increasing numbers of aging residents but also regularly struggle with turnover among more cost-effective nursing staff, such as licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The primary purpose of this study was to examine whether perceived interpersonal conflict influences organizational commitment among LPNs...

Mental ill-health is a public health threat that is prevalent throughout the United States. Tens of millions of Americans have been diagnosed along the continuum of mental ill-health, and many more millions of family members and friends are indirectly affected by the pervasiveness of mental ill-health. Issues such as access and the societal stigma related to mental health issues serve as deterrents to patients receiving their necessary care. However, technological advances have shown the potential to increase access to mental health services for many patients...
