The shoulder's range of motion (ROM) is an important measurement for the diagnostic process and course of treatment for patients with shoulder disorders or injuries. Visual estimation to assess a shoulder's ROM is a fast measuring method, and therefore routinely used in clinical practice. Studies already proved this method as very subjective and unreliable. Misestimating the severity of a patient's disability can lead to improper treatment and should be avoided. Modern technology may help measuring the ROM more reliable, objective, non-invasive and still fast...

In the 1990s, dedicated education units transformed undergraduate preceptorships, but graduate preceptorships remain static. The dyadic nurse practitioner preceptorship model supports an environment where faculty, students, and preceptors may overlook nuances that affect the teaching-learning process. This article describes an innovative clinical education model, Student and Preceptor Advancement in a Dedicated Education Site, designed to improve preceptorships for advanced practice nurses. The focus is on adaptations made to facilitate use in advanced practice nursing programs...

Sarah Oerther, Sunny Hallowell, Alicia Rossiter, Deborah Gross
In 2010, the Institute of Medicine released a landmark report, "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health," calling for a transformation of the nursing profession in education, leadership, and practice (Institute of Medicine [IOM], 2010). Consistent with the call to transform nursing and its role in health and health care, the American Academy of Nursing (the Academy), an organization of approximately 2,500 nursing leaders from around the world, created the Jonas Policy Scholars Program...

BACKGROUND: Self-care practice within the palliative care workforce is often discussed, yet seemingly under-researched. While palliative care professionals are required to implement and maintain effective self-care strategies, there appears little evidence to guide them. Moreover, there is an apparent need to clarify the meaning of self-care in palliative care practice. This paper reports qualitative findings within the context of a broader mixed-methods study. The aim of the present study was to explore the meaning and practice of self-care as described by palliative care nurses and doctors...

BACKGROUND: In many countries, GPs and home care nurses are involved in care for patients with advanced cancer. Given the varied and complex needs of these patients, providing satisfactory care is a major challenge for them. We therefore aimed to study which aspects of care patients, GPs and home care nurses consider important and whether patients receive these aspects. METHODS: Seventy-two Dutch patients with advanced cancer, 87 GPs and 26 home care nurses rated the importance of support when experiencing symptoms, respect for patients' autonomy and information provision...

BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) promotes conversations about future health care needs, enacted if a person is incapable of making decisions at end-of-life that may be communicated through written documentation such as advance care directives. To meet the needs of multicultural and multifaith populations in Australia, an advance care planning website, ACPTalk, was funded to support health professionals in conducting conversations within diverse religious and cultural populations...

Interventions focused on ensuring safe transitions for patients from hospital to home can assist in providing continuity of care, preventing readmissions, and reducing duplication of services. Patients undergoing a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) procedure are often frail, elderly, and have multiple co-morbidities. A pilot initiative evaluating transitional care strategies through telephone follow up was implemented in a tertiary centre with the aim to identify gaps and intervene, preventing re-admission and improving patient outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: The study identifies what constitutes nurse manager (NM) support and other resources that enable clinical nurses (CNs) to engage in evidence-based practice (EBP). BACKGROUND: Clinical nurses report that NM support enables them to use EBP but what constitutes NM support is still unclear. METHODS: Nurse managers, CNs, and EBP mentors received specialized education and use a team approach for EBP. Data were collected preintervention, mid-intervention, and postintervention from observations, interviews, journaling, and surveys...

The primary purpose of this narrative is to elucidate the numerous significant changes that occur at the intensive care unit (ICU) level as a medical center pursues becoming a Level I trauma center. Specifically, we will focus on the following important areas: (1) leadership and strategy issues behind the decision to move forward with becoming a trauma center; (2) preparation needed to take a highly functioning surgical ICU and align it for the inevitable changes that happen as trauma go-live occurs; (3) intensivist staffing changes; (4) roles for and training of advanced practice practitioners; (5) graduate medical education issues; (6) optimizing interactions with closely related services; (7) nursing, staffing, and training issues; (8) bed allocation issues; and (9) reconciling the advantages of a "unified adult critical care service" with the realities of the central relationship between trauma and surgical critical care...

Recent advances in human papillomavirus (HPV) science have led to updates to national HPV vaccine recommendations. This column takes a second look at two recent studies that provide evidence to support the current two-dose HPV vaccination schedule for youth ages 9 to 14 years. This short review will help nurses and other clinicians understand the health and economic benefits of the current dosing recommendation. Nurses are leaders in national vaccination efforts; therefore, it is vital that they remain up to date on the latest evidence that supports vaccination practice as well as health counseling and HPV vaccine recommendations...

To evaluate perinatal nursing care for Deaf women, we conducted a pilot, descriptive study exploring women's prenatal, labor, and postpartum experiences. We used the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) framework to analyze women's responses and to explore implications for practice. Themes and women's stories are presented within the QSEN structure to promote informed and individualized perinatal nursing care for Deaf families. It is essential for nurses to stay abreast of resources and technological advances and to use culturally competent principles of communication...

Joni Watson
OBJECTIVE: To describe the increasing professional use of social media within oncology health care practice. DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed and lay publications. CONCLUSION: Social media has changed the communication landscape over the last 15 years. An integral part of worldwide culture, oncology health care professionals can utilize social media to listen, learn, engage, and co-create to advance cancer care. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: Nurses must be aware of the professional uses for social media, how to use the media, and where to find evidence supporting health care social media efforts within cancer care...

General practice nurses wishing to develop their careers in general practice are often unsupported, relying on the culture of individual practices. Given the structural diversity of Australian general practice, we qualitatively explored staff experiences of organisational governance, what supports are in place and can be used to assist nurses to advance. Semi-structured interviews with 28 staff (including nurses, GPs, receptions and practice managers) were undertaken across three practices, as part of a case-study approach...

BACKGROUND: The recent UK Government paper 'Five year forward view' describes the need to move much patient management from secondary to primary care, and this will require a significant increase in the numbers of General Practice Nurses (GPNs). Until recently, there has been no clear recruitment strategy to address this. There have however been a number of proposed solutions to address the impending GPN recruitment crisis and to increase the numbers of new GPNs in post. General Practitioners (GPs) working in the Advanced Training Practice Scheme (ATPS) have been commissioned by Health Education England to provide placements for student nurses...

BACKGROUND: As the role of advanced practice providers (APPs) expands to include increasingly complex patient care within the intensive care unit, the educational needs of these providers must also be expanded. An onboarding process was designed for APPs in the neurocritical care service line. METHODS: Onboarding for new APPs revolved around 5 specific areas: candidate selection, proctor assignment, 3-phased orientation process, remediation, and mentorship. To ensure effective training for APPs, using the most time-conscious approach, the backbone of the process is a structured curriculum...
