Alexa Colgrove Curtis, Barbara Sattler
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In March 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reversed course on a proposal to ban the agricultural use of the organophosphate (OP) insecticide chlorpyrifos (CPF). The purpose of this article is to examine the evidence leading to this controversial decision and provide clinically applicable health promotion guidance for nurse practitioners on CPF exposure and risk reduction measures. METHODS: Environmental Protection Agency documents on CPF regulation and corresponding research referenced within the EPA reports are reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Evidence-based, multimedia applications to supplement clinical care can improve patient engagement and clinical outcomes. Patients with diabetes with potentially devastating complication of foot ulcers present a substantial opportunity to improve engagement. This project examines how providing an online, multimedia self-management program affects patient engagement and self-reported medication adherence scores within 4-6 weeks compared with preprogram scores. METHODS: Participants included 14 adult, diabetic outpatients receiving care at a Wound Care Center in suburban New York...

Brian K Jefferson, Joan E King
BACKGROUND: Frequent laboratory testing may be necessary at times for critically ill patients. However, the practice of indiscriminate laboratory test ordering is common. PURPOSE: The purpose of this quality improvement project was to assess the effectiveness of the acute care nurse practitioner (ACNP) in reducing the number of unwarranted laboratory tests ordered for ICU patients. To determine whether the presence of an ACNP would make a difference, an ACNP was present on daily ICU multidisciplinary rounds to facilitate the discussion of the laboratory testing needs for each patient for the following 24-hour period...

Joseph Hagan, Derek L Curtis
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased utilization of nurse practitioners (NPs) has been proposed to reduce the shortage of primary care providers, so identifying factors related to retention of NPs is important for health care organizations. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of Misener Nurse Practitioner Job Satisfaction Scale factors and nurse demographic characteristics with NP retention, as defined by the number of years at the current position and intention to leave the current position within 5 years...

#6
Guillermina R Solis, Bibiana M Mancera, Megan Johnson Shen
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this literature review was to evaluate strategies used in primary care settings to initiate advance care planning (ACP) conversations leading to the completion of an advance directive (AD). Approximately 50% of older adults have an AD; few talk to their primary care provider (PCP) about end-of-life wishes. The Institute of Medicine report and recent changes in Medicare reimbursement policies create opportunities for PCPs to address ACP in primary care settings...

Jack Mayeux, Krysten Lisella Arekapudi, Azita Amiri
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Asthma in adults remains a leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and increased health care costs. Asthma action plans (AAPs) have demonstrated improved health outcomes in this populace; however, AAPs continue to be underused by providers. This article aims to re-emphasize the importance of AAPs for adults and refresh providers on the effectiveness and methods to use this indispensable tool. METHODS: A literature search of MEDLINE, PubMed, Google Scholar, and CINAHL was performed, and subsequent findings were reported...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Evidence suggests that nurse-coaching can improve health outcomes, but application of this skill is not well understood. The purpose of this study is to describe the practices of nurse coaches including their work settings, clients/health conditions, motivations behind becoming certified as coaches, and the personal benefits experienced by nurse coaches. METHODS: A cross-sectional online survey was emailed to certified nurse coaches (n = 315); 164 completed the survey, including 68 (41...

Jessamyn Phillips, Prabjot Sandhu
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is one of the most effective forms of contraception available. The utilization of LARC remains low despite being recommended by major health organizations such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, and the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Health care professionals play an essential role in the potential increased use of LARC...

Josephine Etowa, Shannan MacDonald, Jean Hannan, J Craig Phillips, Nana Yaa Boadu, Seye Babatunde
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The World Health Organizations (WHO) strategy is to eliminate pediatric HIV. HIV prevention guidelines in high-income countries recommend mothers living with HIV avoid breastfeeding. Yet, breastfeeding is promoted as the normal and unequalled method of feeding infants. This creates a paradox for mothers coming from cultures where breastfeeding is an expectation and formula feeding suggests illness. Therefore, the purpose of this literature review is to examine the context influencing infant feeding among African immigrant women living with HIV to develop interventions to reduce the risk of HIV mother-to-child transmission...

#14
Barbara Wise, Terie Dreussi-Smith
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is a much recent emphasis on the social determinants of health, and poverty is the most influential of these. It is not enough merely to understand the influence of poverty on health-the primary care provider must understand how to effectively treat patients who live in poverty. METHODS: This article applies the Bridges to Health and Healthcare model for understanding poverty to primary care practice from an individual provider's perspective...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Over half of Americans reports a history of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), which have been associated with many chronic health conditions. Yet primary care providers infrequently screen patients for ACEs and fail to consider the relationship between ACEs and adult health. Therefore, the purposes of this study were to test the effectiveness and feasibility of a screening interview for ACEs and to confirm the prevalence of ACEs among individuals with chronic health conditions...

#16
Michelle Schmerge, Sally Earl, Carol Kline
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprising deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs), including apixaban, betrixaban, dabigatran, edoxaban, and rivaroxaban, are as effective and safe as vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) for primary prophylaxis, treatment, and/or secondary prevention of VTE and present significant advantages in convenience of use. This review provides guidance to nurse practitioners (NPs) and pharmacists on NOAC usage for the management of VTE and examines how traditional anticoagulation clinics can adapt to cater to patients on NOACs...

Wendy L Wright, Kathleen M Zelman
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Poor diet quality has been associated with increased mortality and an increased risk of chronic disease. Given the shortfalls in the typical American diet and the prevalence of nutrition-related chronic disease among US adults, the need for nutrition education is paramount. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are well placed to provide basic nutrition counseling but often face challenges to making this a reality. In a typical office visit, the time available to discuss diet and nutrition can be as little as one minute or less...
