INTRODUCTION: The complexity of care required by many older people living in long-term care (LTC) facilities poses challenges that can lead to potentially avoidable referrals to a hospital emergency department (ED). The Aged Residential Care Intervention Project (ARCHIP) ran an implementation study to evaluate a multidisciplinary team (MDT) intervention supporting LTC facility staff to decrease potentially avoidable ED presentations by residents. METHODS: ARCHIP (conducted in 21 facilities [1,296 beds] with previously noted high ED referral rates) comprised clinical coaching for LTC facility staff by a gerontology nurse specialist (GNS) and an MDT (facility senior nurse, resident's general practitioner, GNS, geriatrician, pharmacist) review of selected high-risk residents' care-plans...

BACKGROUND: Exposure to road traffic noise was associated with increased risk of estrogen receptor (ER)-negative (ER-) breast cancer in a previous cohort study, but not with overall or ER-positive (ER+) breast cancer, or breast cancer prognosis. We examined the association between long-term exposure to road traffic noise and incidence of breast cancer, overall and by ER and progesterone receptor (PR) status. METHODS: We used the data from a nationwide Danish Nurse Cohort on 22,466 female nurses (age > 44 years) who at recruitment in 1993 or 1999 reported information on breast cancer risk factors...

Entry into practice for newly graduated nurses can be a demanding and overwhelming experience. These stressful work conditions have contributed to decreased retention and satisfaction amongst new nurse hires. The aim of this literature review is to answer the following question: in newly hired BSN graduates, how would the use of a one-year nurse residency program compared to a traditional orientation affect turnover rates and reported satisfaction of the new nurse hires over a one-year period? Peer-reviewed research and systematic reviews between the years of 2012-2017 found on the Medline, Nursing & Allied health, and CINHAL were used...

Breakdown in communication is a predictor of both nursing and surgical errors. In a 2013 survey at our institution, staff on the general surgery unit identified nurse-resident communication as the most important issue related to patient safety. The general surgery Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program sought to improve nurse-resident communication through a 3-year quality improvement initiative. A multidisciplinary working group conducted a root-cause analysis and developed initiatives addressing priority issues in nurse-resident communication...

OBJECTIVE: This retrospective study examined the nurse outcomes from new-graduate nurse residents completing an online nurse residency program (NRP). BACKGROUND: Studies have shown that hospital-based NRPs help new graduates transition from beginners to competent nurses. However, NRPs can tax the resources of smaller institutions, making such a program unrealistic. Little is published exploring the efficacy of online programs for nursing residents. METHODS: Surveys assessing the impact of the online program were completed by residents in an online NRP at initiation, 6 months, and at completion...

Many, especially newer, nurses lack the experience for nuanced skillful communication at end of life. This study incorporated the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) Core Curriculum Communication module into a nurse residency program and tested for change in attitudes toward end-of-life (EOL) care. Researchers found significant differences in attitudes toward care of the dying before and after the ELNEC training, and between nurses with greater than and less than 5 years experience. Findings support that ELNEC education can significantly impact nurse attitudes about EOL care...

Retaining qualified nurses at the bedside can have a positive impact on patient care safety and quality. Without support and resilience, nurses may become emotionally exhausted within the first year of practice. Nursing professional development educators must recognize that new nurses often struggle with stressors related to nursing and take the appropriate steps to help them build resilience. This article describes an education project implemented to assist new nurses in developing their resilience. It describes the process and outcomes of a resiliency training program infused into one healthcare facility's nurse residency program and may inform nursing professional development educators planning similar programs...

Recruitment and retention of nurses into the perianesthesia environment remains an ongoing challenge in the face of a national nursing shortage. An insufficient supply of experienced critical care nurses exists to fulfill the staffing needs of perianesthesia departments. Literature describes the impact of successful orientation programs on retention and employee engagement. To compensate for the diminished candidate pool and to improve retention, a nurse residency program was created. The program develops non-critical care experienced nurses into postanesthesia care unit-specific critical care nurses over the course of 1 year...
