Background: To ensure high quality patient care an effective interprofessional collaboration between healthcare professionals is required. Interprofessional education (IPE) has a positive impact on team work in daily health care practice. Nevertheless, there are various challenges for sustainable implementation of IPE. To identify enablers and barriers of IPE for medical and nursing students as well as to specify impacts of IPE for both professions, the 'Cooperative academical regional evidence-based Nursing Study in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania' (Care-N Study M-V) was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency departments (EDs) have seen harm rise for both patients and health workers from an increasing rate of agitation events. Team effectiveness during care of this population is particularly challenging because fear of physical harm leads to competing interests. Simulation is frequently employed to improve teamwork in medical resuscitations but has not yet been reported to address team-based behavioral emergency care. As part of a larger investigation of agitated patient care, we designed this secondary study to examine the impact of an interprofessional standardized patient simulation for ED agitation management...

Introduction: In Canada, the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) has given nurse practitioners (NPs) the power to authorize cannabis for therapeutic purposes (CTP) to eligible patients. This expansion in NPs' scope of practice underscores the importance of delivering balanced, evidence-based education on cannabis to NPs. The aim of this national study was to assess NPs' knowledge and practice gaps related to CTP to inform the development of future education resources that increase NPs' clinical competence and improve patient care related to medical cannabis...

General surgeons provide life-saving trauma care to a large portion of Canadians. Although trauma care has evolved significantly over the last few decades and now requires fewer operations, when a life-saving operation is required the expectation of competence to perform this operation has not been reduced. A recent study from the United States found decreased resident case-log volumes of trauma operations. Such findings raise the alarm of declining exposure of residents to trauma operations and beg the question of whether graduating residents are competent to care for trauma patients...

BACKGROUND: Intentional use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has previously only been researched in small, possibly biased, samples. There seems to be a lack of scientific information regarding healthy individual's attitudes and presumed use of CAM. The aim of this study is to describe prevalence and characteristics of participants who intend to see a CAM provider compared to participants who intend to see a medical doctor (MD) only when suffering from a chronic, non- life-threatening disease and in the need of treatment...

As part of a reorganisation of the delivery of health care in Denmark therapies for chronic medical conditions are moved out of hospitals and disease-specific patient education programmes instituted to train patients to assume responsibility for treating their disease at home, that is, perform tasks and functions traditionally done by healthcare professionals. Drawing on video-recordings (90:25h) from a programme for self-management of end-stage renal disease through automated home peritoneal dialysis, the study employs conversation analysis to examine nurses' instructional practices for providing patients with the necessary knowledge, skill and competences...

BACKGROUND: In Canada, all nurses are required to engage in evidence-based practice (EBP) as an entry-to-practice competency; however, there is little research that examines Licensed Practical Nurses' (LPNs') information seeking behaviors or preferred sources of knowledge to conduct EBP. AIMS: Due to the differences in education and roles of LPNs and Registered Nurses (RNs), it is both necessary and important to gain an understanding of how LPNs utilize evidence in their unique nursing practice...
