Nicholas A Giordano, Christine Bader, Therese S Richmond, Rosemary C Polomano
BACKGROUND: Understanding the complex interrelationships between combat injuries, physical health, and mental health symptoms is critical to addressing the healthcare needs of wounded military personnel and veterans. The relationship between injury characteristics, pain, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression among combat-injured military personnel is unique to modern conflicts and understudied in the nursing literature. AIM: This integrative review synthesizes clinical presentations and relationships of combat injury, PTSD, depression, and pain in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) United States military service members and veterans...

BACKGROUND: Even though multiple positive outcomes are the result of evidence-based care, including improvements in healthcare quality, safety, and costs, it is not consistently delivered by clinicians in healthcare systems throughout the world. AIMS: In an attempt to accelerate the implementation of evidence-based practice (EBP) across the United States, an invitational Interprofessional National EBP Forum to determine major priorities for the advancement of EBP was held during the launch of the newly established Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing and Healthcare at The Ohio State University College of Nursing...

BACKGROUND: Tremendous variability in EBP persists throughout the United States even though research supports that implementation of EBP leads to high-quality cost-effective care. Although the first set of EBP competencies for nurses was published in 2014, the state of EBP competency in U.S. nurses is currently unknown. AIMS: The purposes of this study were to: (a) describe the state of EBP competency in nurses across the United States; and (b) determine important factors associated with EBP competency...

Mary-Anne Ramis, Anne Chang, Lisa Nissen
BACKGROUND: Incorporating evidence-based practice (EBP) into clinical decision making and professional practice is a requirement for many health disciplines, yet research across health disciplines on factors that influence and predict student intention to use EBP following graduation has not been previously synthesized. AIM: To synthesize research on factors that influence development of EBP behaviors and subsequently predict undergraduate students' intention toward EBP uptake...

BACKGROUND: Patient-visitor violence (PVV) committed against nurses is a worldwide problem. Registered nurses in emergency departments (EDs) are particularly susceptible. The frequency and severity of PVV against emergency nurses (ENs) internationally is well documented. Little is known about factors that make ENs feel safe from PVV. AIM: Examine the psychometric properties of the Personal Workplace Safety Instrument for Emergency Nurses (PWSI-EN), developed to measure ENs' perceptions of safety from PVV...

BACKGROUND: Completion of a delirium detection tool allows rapid management, which alleviates complications. However, these tools are often underused. AIMS: To assess the effect of a knowledge transfer (KT) intervention on the completion of a delirium detection tool by nurses working with cardiac surgery patients. Secondary aims included describing completion rates per work shift, and patient characteristics associated with higher rates. METHODS: In a pre-post study, the intervention included a survey and focus groups to identify barriers to use of a delirium detection tool (Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist [ICDSC])...

Pınar Avşar, Ayişe Karadağ
BACKGROUND: A reduction in tissue tolerance promotes the development of pressure ulcers (PUs) and incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD). AIMS: To determine the cost-effectiveness and efficacy of evidence-based (EB) nursing interventions on increasing tissue tolerance by maintaining tissue integrity. METHODS: The study involved 154 patients in two intensive care units (77 patients, control group; 77 patients, intervention group). Data were collected using the following: patient characteristics form, Braden PU risk assessment scale, tissue integrity monitoring form, PU identification form, IAD and severity scale, and a cost table of the interventions...

Mae L Dizon, Cheryl Reinking
BACKGROUND: Transitions of care (TOC) from hospitals is a continuing focus for quality improvement to reduce readmissions. Sufficient resources to offer interventions remain an issue for hospitals, leading to efforts to target high-risk patients and identify effective interventions. OBJECTIVES: Describe and measure effects, hospital-wide and among high-risk patients, of a multifaceted TOC program on 30-day readmissions in a 441-bed acute care community hospital...

BACKGROUND: Stress is a part of daily life for graduate students, including graduate nursing students. Contemporary graduate nursing students are facing unprecedented challenges to meet rigorous academic standards as they prepare for their advanced professional role to meet the demands of the nation's complex and ever-changing healthcare system. Empowering graduate nursing students to ease their perceived stress and minimize undesirable health effects may benefit their capacity to adapt and successfully manage perceived stress in their future healthcare role...

BACKGROUND: Improving care quality while reducing cost has always been a focus of nursing homes. Certified nursing assistants comprise the largest proportion of the workforce in nursing homes and have the potential to contribute to the quality of care provided. Quality improvement (QI) initiatives using certified nursing assistants as champions have the potential to improve job satisfaction, which has been associated with care quality. AIMS: To identify the role, use and preparation of champions in a nursing home setting as a way of informing future QI strategies in nursing homes...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Renee Trambert, Mildred Ortu Kowalski, Betty Wu, Nimisha Mehta, Paul Friedman
BACKGROUND: Aromatherapy has been used to reduce anxiety in a variety of settings, but usefulness associated with breast biopsies has not been documented. AIMS: This study was conducted in women undergoing image-guided breast biopsy. We explored the use of two different aromatherapy scents, compared to placebo, aimed at reducing anxiety with the intent of generating new knowledge. METHODS: This was a randomized, placebo-controlled study of two different types of external aromatherapy tabs (lavender-sandalwood and orange-peppermint) compared with a matched placebo-control delivery system...

Joanne K Singleton
BACKGROUND: Doctors of Nursing Practice focus on leadership in evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP is influenced by one's beliefs in and implementation of EBP. Little is known to date about the EBP beliefs and implementation of Doctor of Nursing Practice students and outcomes of Doctor of Nursing Practice education. AIMS: Guided by the Advancing Research and Clinical practice through close Collaboration (ARCC) Model, the Evidence-Based Practice Beliefs (EBPB) and Implementation (EBPI) tools were used to assess the impact of EBP as a program pillar, curricular thread, and content area on EBPB and EBPI of Doctor of Nursing Practice-Family Nurse Practitioner students...

Cdr Jennifer M Zicko, Lcdr Rebecca A Schroeder, Cdr William S Byers, Lt Adam M Taylor, Cdr Dennis L Spence
BACKGROUND: Staff members working on our nonmental health (non-MH) units (i.e., medical-surgical [MS] units) were not educated in recognizing or deescalating behavioral emergencies. Published evidence suggests a behavioral emergency response team (BERT) composed of MH experts who assist with deescalating behavioral emergencies may be beneficial in these situations. Therefore, we sought to implement a BERT on the inpatient non-MH units at our military treatment facility. AIMS: The objectives of this evidence-based practice process improvement project were to determine how implementation of a BERT affects staff and patient safety and to examine nursing staffs' level of knowledge, confidence, and support in caring for psychiatric patients and patients exhibiting behavioral emergencies...

Lora Moore
BACKGROUND: Implementation of evidence-based practice (EBP) at the bedside has been difficult to achieve. Significant gaps between current research and actual practice have been identified and must be addressed in effort to increase utilization of EBP. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of an online EBP educational intervention and to examine the relationship between educational preparation and years of nursing experience on nurses' practice, attitudes, and knowledge and skills of EBP...
