REVIEW
Rujun Hu, Huiming Gao, Yansheng Ye, Zhihong Ni, Ning Jiang, Xiaolian Jiang
BACKGROUND: In recent years, the flipped classroom approach has been broadly applied to nursing courses in China. However, a systematic and quantitative assessment of the outcomes of this approach has not been conducted. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the meta-analysis is to evaluate the effectiveness of the flipped classroom pedagogy in Chinese baccalaureate nursing education. DESIGN: Meta-analysis of randomized controlled studies. DATA SOURCE: All randomized controlled trials relevant to the use of flipped classrooms in Chinese nursing education were retrieved from the following databases from their date of inception through September 23, 2017: PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, CINAHL, the China National Knowledge Infrastructure, the Wanfang Database, and the Chinese Scientific Journals Database...

Application of high-reliability (HR) principles into daily healthcare processes can drive culture change, safety, and quality outcomes. Understanding foundational practices to full HR principle integration in an organization's quality and safety programs strengthens evidence-based practices, reduces clinical variation, and improves nurse-sensitive patient outcomes. Quantifying the cost impact of reduction in preventable harm and improved nurse-sensitive patient outcomes is an initial attempt to formulate an empiric measure of nursing value...

BACKGROUND: Young people living with perinatally-acquired HIV require age-appropriate support regarding sex and relationships as they progress towards adulthood. HIV affects both genders but evidence suggests that young women are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse and more prone to engaging in sexual behaviours to meet their daily survival needs. This can result in poor sexual and reproductive health (SRH) outcomes. HIV services in Malawi provide support for young women's HIV-related clinical needs, but it is unclear whether there is sufficient provision for their SRH needs as they become adults...

Joyce L Merrigan
Miscarriage is the unwanted ending of a pregnancy before 20 weeks gestation. Women experiencing miscarriage require specialized care from nurses and other healthcare professionals. Many women are dissatisfied with emergency care related to miscarriage and desire honest communication, validation of urgency, and more robust information at discharge. Perinatal bereavement education offers an opportunity for emergency department nurses to acquire specific knowledge and communication skills that assist with understanding the individualized experience of early pregnancy loss...

BACKGROUND: There has been a tremendous surge in stroke prevalence in sub-Saharan Africa. Hypertension (HTN), the most potent, modifiable risk factor for stroke, is a particular challenge in sub-Saharan Africa. Culturally sensitive, efficacious HTN control programs that are timely and sustainable are needed, especially among stroke survivors. Mobile health (mHealth) technology and task-shifting offer promising approaches to address this need. METHODS: Using a concurrent triangulation design, we collected data from stroke survivors, caregivers, community leaders, clinicians and hospital personnel to explore the barriers, facilitators and perceptions toward mHealth related to HTN management among poststroke survivors in Ghana...

BACKGROUND: Bangladesh has achieved major gains in maternal and newborn survival, facility childbirth and skilled birth attendance between 1991 and 2010, but excess maternal mortality persists. High-quality maternal health care is necessary to address this burden. Implementation of WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist (SCC), whose items address the major causes of maternal deaths, is hypothesized to improve adherence of providers to essential childbirth practices. METHOD: The SCC was adapted for the local context through expert consultation meetings, creating a total of 27 checklist items...

INTRODUCTION: Contracting the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a genuine concern for sexually assaulted patients. Emergency departments are a place where sexually assaulted patients seek care, including treatment to prevent HIV. Prompt administration of nonoccupational postexposure prophylaxis is essential because of the time-sensitive nature of the medications. Quality improvement measures at an urban hospital revealed delays in administration of postexposure prophylaxis to these patients...

OBJECTIVES: Nursing homes (NHs) collaboration with hospices appears to improve end-of-life (EOL) care among dying NH residents. However, the potential benefits of NH-hospice collaboration may vary with the patterns of this collaboration. This study examines the relationship between the attributes of NH-hospice collaboration, especially the exclusivity of NH-hospice collaboration (ie, the number of hospice providers in a NH), and EOL hospitalizations among dying NH residents. DESIGN: This national retrospective cohort study linked 2000-2009 NH assessments (ie, the Minimum Data Set 2...

BACKGROUND: Contraception counseling and provision is an essential preventative service. Real-time assessment of these services is critical for quality improvement and comparative study. Direct observation is not feasible on a large scale so indirect measures, such as chart review, have been determined to be acceptable tools for this assessment. Computer-aided chart review has significant benefits over manual chart review as far as greater efficiency and ease of repeated measurements...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: While development is under way of accurate, point-of-care molecular tests for influenza infection, the optimal specimen type for molecular tests remains unclear. Compared with standard nasopharyngeal swab specimens, less invasive nasal swab and midturbinate swab specimens may cause less patient discomfort and be more suitable for routine emergency department (ED) testing, although possibly at the expense of diagnostic accuracy. We compare both the accuracy of a polymerase chain reaction molecular influenza test and discomfort between these 3 intranasal specimen types...
