: Similar to the trend worldwide, hypertension (HTN) is also the single most attributable cause for mortality in South-East Asia (SEA). But while in developed regions, the prevalence of HTN appears to be stabilizing or decreasing, the rates in SEA continue to rise. Around a third of the adult population in SEA have elevated blood pressure (BP) with nearly 1.5 million deaths (9.4% of total deaths) attributable to HTN annually.In several countries in SEA, awareness level of HTN is less than 50% but in the more affluent countries in the region, awareness ranges from 56% to 70%...

Specific changes to the national clinical nurse specialist (CNS) certification are necessitating a move away the psychiatric/mental health (P/MH) CNS population focus. However, a rapidly increasing older adult population with P/MH comorbidities such as depression and anxiety means that the adult-gerontology CNS (AGCNS) will likely be coordinating much of the complex care needs of this vulnerable population. Therefore, strategies are needed to ensure AGCNSs are competent in advanced practice P/MH nursing. In addition, at this critical time in the redesign of healthcare, the Institute of Medicine has made interprofessional practice center stage for healthcare professional education...

AS A NURSE, you would have to have been held hostage on Mars not to be aware of the implications to you of post-registration education and practice (PREP). No-one is exempt if they want to stay on the nursing register, and for many nurses, midwives and health visitors PREP has provided myriad and welcome opportunities for continuing development.

There is much negative publicity about the health care for the frail elderly especially in nursing homes. However, in scientific research programs the results are also quite disappointing. We see a low percentage (< 50 %) of treatment fidelity in the intervention programs at stake. Research on the education content with respect to the frail elderly showed that this is very poor for every profession. From the perspective of formal education the professionals who provide treatment and care the frail elderly are relatively unqualified and incompetent...

BACKGROUND: Graduate and post-graduate education for health professionals is increasingly delivered in an e-learning environment, where automated, continuous formative testing with integrated feedback can guide students' self-assessment and learning. Asking students to rate the certainty they assign to the correctness of their answers to test questions can potentially provide deeper insights into the success of teaching, with test results informing course designers whether learning outcomes have been achieved...

The International Council of Nurses has chosen as its theme for Nurses' Day 1996 'Better Health Through Nursing Research'. It is not surprising that there is an emphasis on research since this is a theme which is highlighted throughout the ICN Position Statements ( ICN 1993 ). The Position Statements contain a main category on research in which the ICN states that: 'It is convinced of the importance of nursing research for the quality of nursing practice and the health and welfare needs of people. The continuous and rapid scientific developments in a changing world highlight the need for research as a means to generate an up to date, organised body of nursing knowledge, to improve professional education and practice and effectively utilise resources...

The emergence of complex global challenges at the convergence of human, animal, and environmental health has catalyzed a movement supporting "One Health" approaches. Despite recognition of the importance of One Health approaches to address these complex challenges, little effort has been directed at identifying the seminal knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for individuals to successfully contribute to One Health efforts. Between 2008 and 2011, three groups independently embarked on separate initiatives to identify core competencies for professionals involved with One Health approaches...

This case highlights a dilemma for interprofessional trainees facing a traditional health professions hierarchy rather than an interprofessional collaborative practice culture within the clinical setting. In the case, the trainee must determine the best way to confront the attending physician, if at all, as well as the best way to mediate the situation with fellow health professions trainees and team members. The commentary provides guidelines for interprofessional collaborative practice as outlined by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative competencies, including determining team members' roles and responsibilities, providing clear communication, adopting clinical huddles, and embracing a sense of inquiry during times of conflict...

The general health status of the Turkish people has improved significantly in recent years. Improvements in the health status of the child population followed the introduction of health reforms, such as the Health Transformation Program. Presently, Turkey is undergoing further important changes concerning its medical system. The changes introduced during 2005-2015 have provided almost complete health insurance coverage and increased accessibility to primary health care givers. However, health providers realize that there are ongoing inefficiencies and deficiencies in both the health care system and health education...

We describe a framework used to analyze health policy content in baccalaureate nursing program courses that combines the conceptual model for nursing and health policy and the Adams influence model to account for knowledge and skills needed for health policy work. Our analysis of health policy content in courses in one baccalaureate nursing program focused on what policies were emphasized and how educational content supported the development of personal influence. The analysis revealed course content focused on public sources of health policies and lack of overt course content about policies from organizational and professional sources...
