AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The primary objective was to assess intensive care unit nurses' knowledge of intensive care unit delirium and delirium assessment before and after an educational intervention. In addition, nurses' perception on the usefulness of a delirium assessment tool and barriers against delirium assessment were assessed as secondary objectives. BACKGROUND: Early identification of delirium in intensive care units is crucial for patient care. Hence, nurses require adequate knowledge to enable appropriate evaluation of delirium using standardised practice and assessment tools...

Patricia S Groves, Jacinda L Bunch
The aim of this paper is discussion of a new middle-range theory of patient safety goal priming via safety culture communication. Bedside nurses are key to safe care, but there is little theory about how organizations can influence nursing behavior through safety culture to improve patient safety outcomes. We theorize patient safety goal priming via safety culture communication may support organizations in this endeavor. According to this theory, hospital safety culture communication activates a previously held patient safety goal and increases the perceived value of actions nurses can take to achieve that goal...

AIM: To determine if delivering electronic messages from nurses during the first six months postpartum is feasible, acceptable and effective in improving mood and decreasing parenting stress. BACKGROUND: Competing demands during the postpartum hospitalization make focused time for nurses to provide education and support difficult.

Sharon E Bryant
Over the last 20 years, the emergence of the hospitalist has changed the face of medicine. Hospitalists may serve as either general or specialty-focused providers caring for acutely ill patients in the hospital setting. As the demands and constraints of hospital-specific patient management have continued to grow, an increased need for inclusion of nurse practitioners (NP) into current hospitalist staffing models has occurred. A hospitalist-focused educational model has been developed to better prepare NP students for a variety of hospitalist roles after graduation...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is one of the most effective forms of contraception available. The utilization of LARC remains low despite being recommended by major health organizations such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, and the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Health care professionals play an essential role in the potential increased use of LARC...

BACKGROUND: Family refusal (FR) to heart beating donation (HBD) in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is increasing in recent years with a significant impact on the number of transplantable organs. Fostering setting humanization, quality of relationships, respect for will and family reliance towards ICU could be relevant in containing FR to organ donation (OD) in ICU. Our aims were to highlight the effects of structural features of ICUs and humanization determinants on FR in HBD process, and to describe visiting policies, structure and modalities of support in ICUs...

The paper describes historical and contemporary challenges experienced by Black nurses throughout their nursing education and in practice. It also highlights how social and institutional discourses continue to marginalize and oppress Black nurses as leaders and render them invisible.

The field of oncology has been permeated with the use of pharmacogenomics. There have been a few studies on oncology nurses' attitudes surrounding this topic. A study conducted in 2015 revealed six themes: consistency, effectiveness, cost, disparity, genetic counseling needs and need for further education. Further information obtained while conducting a pilot study for continuing education related to pharmacogenomics have revealed novel perspectives surrounding pharmacogenomics among oncology nurses. The previous six themes were substantiated...
