BACKGROUND: In many countries, GPs and home care nurses are involved in care for patients with advanced cancer. Given the varied and complex needs of these patients, providing satisfactory care is a major challenge for them. We therefore aimed to study which aspects of care patients, GPs and home care nurses consider important and whether patients receive these aspects. METHODS: Seventy-two Dutch patients with advanced cancer, 87 GPs and 26 home care nurses rated the importance of support when experiencing symptoms, respect for patients' autonomy and information provision...

The clinical field of wound healing is challenged by numerous hurdles. Not only are wound healing disorders complex and multifactorial, but the corresponding patient population is diverse, often elderly and burdened by multiple comorbidities such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc. The care of such patients requires a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, nurses, and scientists. In spite of the critical clinical need, it has been over 15 years since a treatment received approval for efficacy by the FDA in the United States...

Advancing evidence-based policy change is a leadership challenge that nurses should embrace. Key tips to ensure that evidence-based policy changes are successful at the individual, community, and population levels are offered to help nurses through the change process. The public trust in the nursing profession is a leverage point that should be used to advance the use of evidence, expedite change, and improve health for students and across communities.

Interventions focused on ensuring safe transitions for patients from hospital to home can assist in providing continuity of care, preventing readmissions, and reducing duplication of services. Patients undergoing a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) procedure are often frail, elderly, and have multiple co-morbidities. A pilot initiative evaluating transitional care strategies through telephone follow up was implemented in a tertiary centre with the aim to identify gaps and intervene, preventing re-admission and improving patient outcomes...

BACKGROUND: The Patient Self-Determination Act (PSDA) requires hospitals, home health agencies, nursing homes, and hospice providers to offer new patients information about advance directives. There is little evidence regarding whether encounters with these health-care providers prompt advance directive completion by patients. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether encounters with various types of health-care providers were associated with higher odds of completing advance directives by older patients...

Medical advances have made it possible to save lives of children with severe refractory diseases. As a result, the number of children who need continuous medical care at home has increased. However, currently, few medical personnel of both medical institutions and pharmacies are aware of home visiting intervention for pharmaceutical management. Home visiting intervention should be utilized more for severely impaired children who are highly dependent on medical care to effectively reduce the nursing care burden of the family and to secure pharmaceutical supply path...

After the Great East Japan Earthquake, we re-recognized the importance of self-help efforts of home-cared persons and their families and the necessity of advanced measures. In 2013, we designed a disaster drill to enhance the self-help ability of home-cared persons and their families in a stepwise fashion. In 2016, for the purpose of reviewing the achievements of the designed drill and its contents, the disaster drill was conducted on 21 users of our home-visit nursing station, followed by a questionnaire survey regarding the training contents, date/time, documents used, change in awareness, disaster-preventive actions, etc...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: With advances in the understanding of adult spinal deformity (ASD), more complex osteotomy and fusion techniques are being implemented with increasing frequency. Patients undergoing ASD corrections infrequently require extended acute care, longer inpatient stays, and are discharged to supervised care. Given the necessity of value-based health care, identification of clinical indicators for adverse discharge disposition in ASD surgeries is paramount. PURPOSE: On nationwide and surgeon-created databases, identify predictors of adverse discharge disposition after ASD surgeries and view corresponding differences in charges...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The Integrated Narrative Nursing Model (INNM) is an approach that integrates the qualitative methodology typical of the human sciences, with the quantitative methodology more often associated with the natural sciences. This complex model, which combines a focus on narrative with quantitative measures, has recently been effectively applied to the assessment of chronic patients. In this study, the model is applied to the planning phase of education (Integrated Narrative Nursing Education, INNE), and proves to be a valid instrument for the promotion of the current educational paradigm that is centered on the engagement of both the patient and the caregiver in their own path of care...

BACKGROUND: Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) programs are increasingly seen as the way in which education for health care professionals can be transformed, giving access to effective ongoing learning and training even where time or geographical barriers exist. Given the increasing emphasis on this mode of educational support for health care practitioners, it is vital that we can effectively evaluate and measure impact to ensure that TEL programs are effective and fit for purpose. This paper examines the current evidence base for the first time, in relation to the evaluation of TEL programs for health care professionals...

BACKGROUND: For patients with advanced dementia, pain diagnosis and assessment requires observations of pain-indicative behavior by others. One type of behavior that has been shown to be a promising candidate is the facial response to pain. To further test how pain-indicative facial responses are, we investigated the predictive power of observational facial descriptors to (i) predict the self-report of pain and (ii) to differentiate between non-painful and painful conditions. In addition, the expertise of the observers (nurses vs...

OBJECTIVE: To identify how certification is defined, conceptualized, and discussed in the nursing literature. BACKGROUND: Although it is hypothesized that credentialing is associated with better patient outcomes, the evidence is relatively limited. Some authors have suggested that the lack of consistency used to define certification in nursing literature may be one of the dominant obstacles in credentialing research. METHODS: This scoping review was guided by Arksey and O'Malley's framework, and quantitative and qualitative analyses were conducted...

OBJECTIVE: The study identifies what constitutes nurse manager (NM) support and other resources that enable clinical nurses (CNs) to engage in evidence-based practice (EBP). BACKGROUND: Clinical nurses report that NM support enables them to use EBP but what constitutes NM support is still unclear. METHODS: Nurse managers, CNs, and EBP mentors received specialized education and use a team approach for EBP. Data were collected preintervention, mid-intervention, and postintervention from observations, interviews, journaling, and surveys...

The field of neurointerventional radiology (NIR) therapy, including acute ischemic stroke intervention, endovascular intracranial aneurysm management, and treatment of intra- and extracranial large-vessel disease, has evolved over the past 18 years. To support this specialized advanced care requires nursing standards of care for staff to provide direct patient care in NIR suites and intensive management of this high-risk patient population. The intent of this paper is to provide a complementary document for the Stroke Interventional Laboratory Consensus (SILC) statement that will specifically address the nursing standards of care for patients in an NIR suite...

The primary purpose of this narrative is to elucidate the numerous significant changes that occur at the intensive care unit (ICU) level as a medical center pursues becoming a Level I trauma center. Specifically, we will focus on the following important areas: (1) leadership and strategy issues behind the decision to move forward with becoming a trauma center; (2) preparation needed to take a highly functioning surgical ICU and align it for the inevitable changes that happen as trauma go-live occurs; (3) intensivist staffing changes; (4) roles for and training of advanced practice practitioners; (5) graduate medical education issues; (6) optimizing interactions with closely related services; (7) nursing, staffing, and training issues; (8) bed allocation issues; and (9) reconciling the advantages of a "unified adult critical care service" with the realities of the central relationship between trauma and surgical critical care...
