Margaret OʼDonnell, Kathleen Shurpin, Brenda Janotha
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Despite demonstrated efficacy, the utilization of herpes zoster vaccine (HZV), recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for all immunocompetent adults aged above 60 years, is low (31%). The aim of this study was to identify nurse practitioner (NP) barriers to HZV administration and then to use these results to develop and evaluate the outcomes of an educational program. METHODS: This study used a two-phase design. In Phase I, barriers that obstruct the provision of HZV were identified and NPs were surveyed to determine current HZV practice...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Communication about risk factors for diabetes between nurse practitioners and college students may not be occurring as the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes increases. The purpose of this secondary analysis was to evaluate if college students are being told of their risk for diabetes based on known risk factors of weight, sleep, and depressive symptoms. METHODS: Descriptive, cross-sectional study was completed using National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011-2012...

Patrick OʼByrne, Jean Daniel Jacob
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Depression is a major health concern encountered by nurse practitioners working in an array of health care settings. Many current guidelines and articles on this topic recommend using the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) as a screening tool. Nurse practitioners should have a sophisticated knowledge of this tool. METHODS: Review of the criteria for diagnosing depression as well as depression screening tools. Database search of EMBASE, CINAHL, and MEDLINE for articles about the PHQ-9...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Diabetes mellitus is an epidemic. Many organizations and states have established reportable quality care measures. Our organization explored novel ways of chronic disease management. The purpose of this article is to decrease the percentage of patients with a hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) more than 8%. METHODS: Prospective, pre- and postintervention, quality improvement project was implemented in the Employee and Community Health Clinic using an endocrinology nurse practitioner (NP) to coordinate and provide care to adult patients with diabetes...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In 2015, an invitational think tank was convened by the Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners to update the 2010 Nurse Practitioner (NP) Research Agenda Roundtable. This effort was undertaken to provide guidance for future health care research. The purpose of this article is to introduce the process used for conducting four reviews that address critical topics related to specific research priorities emanating from the 2015 NP Research Agenda Roundtable...

Nicole Martinez de Andino
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) is a prevalent disorder affecting productivity, quality of life, and health care resource utilization. Nurse practitioners (NPs) play a critical function in managing patients presenting with CIC, with roles including evaluation, diagnosis, treatment decisions, and patient education. For adults with inadequate response or tolerability issues using over-the-counter treatments, three prescription agents (plecanatide, linaclotide, and lubiprostone) are available in the United States to treat CIC, of which plecanatide was mostly recently approved...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM), first reported by Japanese doctors, has gained an overall acknowledgment as an independent malady of international attention. It resembles the presentation of an acute myocardial infarction but lacks ischemic myocardial tissue. The objective of this article is to review the physiology, diagnostics, treatment, and complications of TCM and report a case study of a patient who developed TCM. METHODS: Observation through direct patient care allowed for data collection of this unique medical phenomenon...

Izabela Kazana, Marcia Pencak Murphy
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This quality improvement (QI) project was designed to increase walking activity for eligible residents in long-term care (LTC). Walking programs have positive benefits; however, they are underused in LTC. METHODS: The Model for Improvement and Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles were used to implement the key components including building a guiding coalition, environment and policy assessment, development of a patient-centered walking program protocol, staff education, mobility huddle to motivate and mentor staff, and ongoing evaluation and feedback...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In the past decade, there has been much advancement in oral antidiabetic agents, but few changes in insulin therapy. With the addition of the ultra-long-acting insulins, insulin glargine U300 (IGlar 300) and insulin degludec (IDeg 100 and IDeg 200), it is important to understand key aspects in the agents' clinical properties, efficacy, safety, dosing, packaging, and place in therapy. METHODS: A literature review was conducted using PubMed database and was limited to English, full-text articles published from January 2000 to January 2018...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Few studies have examined human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine communication in the context of the health care team. METHODS: In 2016, the investigators conducted a national, online survey of U.S. parents who reported having discussed HPV vaccination with their adolescent's health care team. Multivariable logistic regression assessed associations between HPV vaccine initiation (≥1 dose) and having: 1) discussed HPV vaccination with multiple team members and 2) received congruent recommendations about HPV vaccination...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In 2015, New York State adopted the Nurse Practitioners Modernization Act to remove required written practice agreements between physicians and nurse practitioners (NPs) with at least 3,600 hours of practice experience. We assessed the perspectives of physicians and NPs on the barriers and facilitators of policy implementation. METHODS: Qualitative descriptive design and individual face-to-face interviews were used to collect data from physicians and NPs...

Jane Currie, Mary Chiarella, Thomas Buckley
BACKGROUND: To facilitate the expansion of nurse practitioners working in community and primary health settings, legislative changes were enacted in 2010. These led to privately practicing nurse practitioners (PPNPs) being enabled to provide care subsidized through the Australian Government Medicare Benefits Schedule and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. Little is known about the impact of this legislation on patient access to care in Australia. PURPOSE: To explore how, why and in which contexts PPNP services in Australia impact on patient access to care...

Denise Coppa, Suzy Barcelos Winchester, Mary B Roberts
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was to describe the impact of one aspect of an academic-clinical partnership that showed how assigning nurse practitioner faculty to deliver home-based primary care services to clinically complex patients would decrease rehospitalizations and emergency department visit rates. METHODS: Rehospitalizations and emergency department visits of a cohort of 82 patients were recorded from April 15, 2016 to August 25, 2016 and compared with the same cohort during the two pre-home care inception periods (6 months and 1 year) using insurance claims-based data...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a high-mortality disease with limited treatment options. Optimization of gas exchange while limiting damage to the lungs is key. The use of neuromuscular blocking agents may limit hypoxemia while preventing ventilator-induced lung injury. METHODS: A literature search was conducted using Ovid Medline and the exploded MeSH terms ARDS, acute respiratory distress syndrome, neuromuscular blockade, neuromuscular blocking agents, and paralytics...
