Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an effective, nonsurgical treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis. The optimal treatment strategy for treating concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) has not been tested prospectively in a randomized clinical trial. Nevertheless, it is standard practice in the United States to perform coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention for significant CAD at least 1 month before TAVR. All existing clinical trials were designed using this strategy...

Suicide is a major health problem and a leading cause of death throughout the world. A primary goal for suicide prevention is reforming health professional education in order to increase the competence of health professionals in assessing and managing suicide risk. Nursing leadership is involved in this reform, yet nurses frequently lack the competence to care for patients in suicidal crisis. An identified gap in baccalaureate nursing education is instructional competencies for assessing and managing suicide risk...

New diagnostics are urgently needed to address emerging antimicrobial resistance. The Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group (ARLG) proposes a strategy called MASTERMIND (MASTER protocol for evaluating Multiple INfection Diagnostics) for advancement of infectious diseases diagnostics. The goal of this strategy is to generate the data necessary to support FDA clearance of new diagnostic tests by promoting research that might not have otherwise been feasible with conventional trial designs. MASTERMIND uses a single subject's sample(s) to evaluate multiple diagnostic tests at the same time, providing efficiencies of specimen collection and characterization...

Nurses must have appropriate knowledge and skills to provide safe and effective nursing care in recognition of evolving science. Knowledge of genomics is required to ensure appropriate referral and education of patients who would benefit from genetic services. This article describes the process the Veterans Healthcare Administration's (VHA's) Office of Nursing Services used to determine the nursing genomic competencies appropriate for VHA nurses and identify available resources for educating nurses on these nursing competencies and a strategic plan for long-term implementation...

OBJECTIVE: This study was intended to determine whether positioning emergency department (ED) physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners at the same workstations as registered nurses (RNs) improved communication and teamwork. BACKGROUND: Historically in this organization, providers and staff had separate physical locations (workstations). Construction of a new ED provided the opportunity to redesign the physical layout and to study whether a new design improved the perception of communication and teamwork among medical providers...

As incentives grow for healthcare organizations to improve the patient experience, an increasing number choose to add consumers directly into their leadership structures. In this final installment about the value of patient and family advisory councils, the senior director of quality at a large, Magnet®-recognized Texas hospital explains how tapping into a well-established Magnet culture helped the organization adopt innovative approaches that produced positive change. Based on an interview with the author, she notes that seeing basic issues through patients' eyes challenged long-held beliefs and led to improvements in a wide variety of areas...

BACKGROUND: Hospital-acquired venous thromboembolism (HA-VTE) is a potentially preventable cause of morbidity and mortality. Despite high rates of venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in accordance with an institutional guideline, VTE remains the most common hospital-acquired condition in our institution. OBJECTIVE: To improve the safety of all hospitalized patients, examine current VTE prevention practices, identify opportunities for improvement, and decrease rates of HA-VTE...

BACKGROUND: Effective, scalable strategies to improve maternal, fetal, and newborn health and reduce preventable morbidity and mortality are urgently needed in low- and middle-income countries. Building on the successes of previous checklist-based programs, the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners led the development of the Safe Childbirth Checklist (SCC), a 28-item list of evidence-based practices linked with improved maternal and newborn outcomes. Pilot-testing of the Checklist in Southern India demonstrated dramatic improvements in adherence by health workers to essential childbirth-related practices (EBPs)...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is one of the greatest public health challenges worldwide. It is not only a medical but also a philosophical, ecological, economic, sociocultural, and psychological problem as well as a severe consequence of our modern value definition to 'receive more and more'. Therefore, physicians are not able to treat obesity broadly and should not be used as tools to achieve certain weight goals. METHODS: This article presents an outline of conservative obesity therapy...
