ABSTRACTBackground:Non-pharmacological interventions for Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) have been developed; however, a systematic review on the effectiveness of this type of intervention from a perspective of ergonomics is lacking. According to ergonomics, the capabilities of Persons with Dementia (PwD) should be considered in the interventions for the outcomes to be reliable. We aimed to systematically review the non-pharmacological interventions for BPSD in nursing home residents with an additional assessment criterion based on ergonomics, specifically, capability consideration...

BACKGROUND: More patients are dying in non-palliative care settings than in palliative care settings.

The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of health care providers in caring for patients at the end-of-life stage in non-palliative care settings. METHODS: This is a qualitative study. Twenty-six health care providers from eight health care institutions which are based in Shanghai were interviewed individually between August 2016 and February 2017...

Demographic changes in Germany means that nursing and medical care is becoming increasingly complex. This is especially true for intensive care. Despite the closure of hospitals in Germany, the number of beds in intensive care units rose between 2002 from 23,113 to 26,162 in 2010. At the same time the number of patients treated in intensive care units increased by 148,989 to 2,049,888. The increasing complexity requires specific education for nurses in intensive care based on a model of advanced nursing practice (ANP)...

BACKGROUND: In 2013, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network began requiring transplant centers in the United States to collect and report postdonation living kidney donor follow-up data at 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Despite this requirement, <50% of transplant centers have been able to collect and report the required data. Previous work identified a number of barriers to living kidney donor follow-up, including logistical and administrative barriers for transplant centers and cost and functional barriers for donors...

BACKGROUND: Simulation-based learning was developed to enable nursing and medical students to obtain clinical experience in a safe and controlled environment. The extent to which students concentrate in simulation situations can influence their educational outcomes. However, there are no studies yet on the factors that influence flow in simulation practice. Understanding which factors influence flow might help in achieving better simulation-based learning outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to identify the factors related to flow in simulation practice, including stress, self-esteem, and collective efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal surgery has undergone major changes during the last two decades with a general shift from open, invasive surgery to closed minimally invasive surgery. Accordingly, pain management strategies have also changed, especially with the introduction of ultrasound-guided abdominal wall blocks. Despite laparoscopic abdominal surgery classified as minimal, pain can be quite significant and needs to be addressed appropriately. PURPOSE: This narrative review focuses on adequate pain strategies for various types of surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Preventive home visits (PHV) are a measure for promoting the health of elderly people. A study of these measures used over the past 40 years in many countries across the globe revealed a very diverse picture regarding targeted groups, applied structures and intervention contents. So far, there has been no clear evidence of their effectiveness on outcomes such as mortality, need for care, hospital or nursing home admissions. However, a steady increase in PHV programmes in Germany warrants an examination of the current national practice...

Background: Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is an effective means of preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE) among medical inpatients. Compared with unfractionated heparin, LMWH is equivalent or superior in efficacy and risk of bleeding. Despite its advantages, LMWH is underused in VTE prophylaxis for general-medicine patients hospitalized at our institution. Thus, a quality improvement (QI) initiative was undertaken to increase LMWH use for VTE prophylaxis among medical patients hospitalized on resident teaching services...

Transgender individuals are disproportionately affected by negative mental and sexual health outcomes. School nurses have prime opportunities to combat these outcomes through affirming nursing care, especially when transgender students are socially transitioning. Examples of affirming practice include recognizing students' gender-affirming names, using their pronouns, ensuring safe locker rooms, advocating for student's clothing choices, stopping bullying and harassment, and refraining from making assumptions about their transgender students' sexual orientation...

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...
