Telepsychiatry expands access to psychiatric care. However, telepsychiatry for elderly adults is only reimbursed in the US if the patient is assessed while in a clinical setting. This case study presents a homebound older woman previously hospitalized for schizophrenia who had not seen a psychiatrist in over 20 years. Care was provided with hybrid telepsychiatry (team-based practice with social worker traveling to the home with electronic tablet for connection with psychiatrist). The intervention resulted in detecting unrecognized depression and complex trauma...

Nurses are often recognized for their volunteer efforts following disasters and international humanitarian crises. However, little attention is paid to the activities of nurses who promote a culture of health in their communities through local volunteer work. In this article, we describe nurses' perceptions of how they promote health in their communities through formal and informal volunteer work. Using 315 written responses to an open-ended question included in a 2016 survey of the career patterns of nurses in the U...

The objective of the study was to measure patient attitudes and experience of information received during drug counselling for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) medications. This is a cross-sectional UK postal questionnaire study. Three RA patient groups-disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) only, first anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF) and failed anti-TNF-were sent postal questionnaires. Data on patient history/demographics, drug counselling experience, knowledge of drug side effects, attitudes to vaccinations, cancer screening and blood borne virus testing was collected; 264/679 (39%) patients responded (median age 65 years, 66% female, median disease duration 15 years)...

Impetus for action: Inequity of dental health and dental service use for Travellers in the UK. National guidance on improving community oral health, stresses an imperative to involve and engage with "those whose economic, social and environmental circumstances or lifestyle place them at high risk of poor oral health or make it difficult for them to access dental services". Solution: Oral health promotion and simple treatments were provided on two Traveller sites from a mobile dental unit (MDU) over a 5-day period and patients with extensive oral disease were referred to a fixed-site clinic for continued care...

Four nurses from University of California Davis Medical Center, facilitators of the Re-Igniting the Spirit of Caring curriculum that engages, grounds, renews, and unifies staff from all disciplines within health care organizations, traveled to Minnesota for recertification, and attended a Nursing Salon at "the home of the master," Marie Manthey. They experienced the progress from superficial chat to deeper, heartfelt conversations-being present with each other and collectively held by peers.

When a urinary catheter is not inserted using proper technique, becomes unclean, or remains in place for too long, microorganisms can travel through the catheter lumen or along the outside of the catheter and infect the bladder or kidneys, resulting in a catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Urinary tract infections resulting from catheter use are one of the most common health care-associated infections. The insertion of a urinary catheter is considered to be routine care. Improving practices of placement and removal of urinary catheters requires education aimed at changing the habits of nurses and physicians...

Many agency nurses bill for their services through a limited or personal services company. In the past, this has reduced the tax they need to pay, allowing some profits to be taken as dividends. It has also allowed them to offset costs, such as travel, against their profits.

Your first day is a celebration of all the hard-won achievements throughout your training, so here are a few tips to help you make the most of it: » Organise a ward induction beforehand, or have a look around. Knowing where you are going and what your workplace looks like can help quell your nerves. » Running around trying to find a pair of scrubs to wear during handover is not ideal, so see if you can get your uniform in advance...

It's more than likely that a patient, their family member or a colleague may have recently asked you "Is there an app for that?" Mobile technology is inescapable. It is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life. Wherever we look, people are often hunched over and fully immersed by a small 6 x 3 inch screen, whether it be walking on the street, travelling on the bus, at the coffee shop or in the clinic waiting room. Mobile devices have infiltrated most aspects of our lives and offer quick, adaptive tech-based solutions to many previously administrative, repetitive or otherwise time-consuming tasks...

Each year, more than 130,000 children younger than 13 years are treated in the emergency department after evaluation of injuries sustained from motor vehicle crashes (MVCs). Many of these injuries can be prevented with use of child restraints. In this study we sought to assess emergency nurses' knowledge of child passenger safety (CPS) and its use to keep children safe while traveling in motor vehicles. METHODS: A cross-sectional anonymous study was distributed electronically to 530 emergency nurses who were asked to forward the survey link to other emergency nurses through snowball sampling...
