BACKGROUND: Workplace violence (WPV) against healthcare workers is known as violence in healthcare settings and referring to the violent acts that are directed towards doctors, nurses or other healthcare staff at work or on duty. Moreover, WPV can cause a large number of adverse outcomes. However, there is not enough evidence to test the link between exposure to WPV against doctors, psychological stress, sleep quality and health status in China. OBJECTIVES: This study had three objectives: (1) to identify the incidence rate of WPV against doctors under a new classification, (2) to examine the association between exposure to WPV, psychological stress, sleep quality and subjective health of Chinese doctors and (3) to verify the partial mediating role of psychological stress...

BACKGROUND: The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) is designed to facilitate the expression of nursing diagnoses, interventions and outcomes. The development of the ICNP subsets may support nurses by providing appropriate terms for documenting nursing care. This project aimed to develop a subset of ICNP nursing diagnoses oriented by an Italian Nursing Conceptual Model (MPI) to describe nursing clinical data in medical and surgical acute hospital wards. STUDY DESIGN: A subset of ICNP nursing diagnoses was developed based on a literature review and on an expert consensus...

BACKGROUND: Since the emergence of electronic health records, nursing information is increasingly being recorded and stored digitally. Several studies have shown that a wide range of nursing information is not interoperable and cannot be re-used in different health contexts. Difficulties arise when nurses share information with others involved in the delivery of nursing care. The aim of this study is to develop a nursing subset of patient problems that are prevalent in nursing practice, based on the SNOMED CT terminology to assist in the exchange and comparability of nursing information...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of apnea is highly dependent on the type of apnea. Chest impedance (CI) has inaccuracies in monitoring respiration, which compromises accurate apnea classification. Electrical activity of the diaphragm measured by transcutaneous electromyography (EMG) is feasible in preterm infants and might improve the accuracy of apnea classification. OBJECTIVES: To compare the accuracy of apnea classification based on diaphragmatic EMG (dEMG) and CI tracings in preterm infants...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid cancer (ThyCa) is generally associated with a favorable prognosis and excellent surgical outcomes. Consequently, its treatment is medically focused and current guidelines recommend interdisciplinary care including access to a nurse for complex cases alone. To date, no studies have evaluated the need for and impact of an Interdisciplinary Team Based Care Approach(ITCA-ThyCa) for general Thyroid Cancer patients, including a dedicated nurse as part of a larger interdisciplinary team, as well as patient-reported outcomes, as is recommended worldwide in cancer care...

Accurately identifying death and its causes is integral to the compilation of mortality data and ultimately to the operation of the criminal justice and public health systems. A clear understanding of who is in charge of such processes is paramount to establishing the quality, or lack thereof, of the information provided in death certificates. Our study provides a comprehensive overview of all state statutes identifying death investigators charged with classifying and certifying death in the United States. We found that state statutes designate a broad range of individuals as responsible for the classification and certification of death...

Postoperative delirium (POD) represents an acute brain dysfunction in the postsurgical period. Perioperative physicians caring for the older adults are familiar with the care of dysfunction of organs such as lungs, heart, liver, or kidney in the perioperative setting, but they are less familiar with management of brain dysfunction. As early detection and prompt treatment of inciting factors are utmost important to prevent or minimize the deleterious outcomes of delirium. The purpose of this review is to prepare perioperative physicians with a set of current clinical practice recommendations to provide optimal perioperative care of older adults, with a special focus on specific perioperative interventions that have been shown to prevent POD...

INTRODUCTION: Femoral periprosthetic fracture (FPF) is a frequent complication in dependent elderly persons, with a limited life expectancy. Their management is difficult and the choice between osteosynthesis and prosthesis is still matter of discussion. To date, there is no study on unlocked plate with integrated cerclage cable and trochanteric hook for this indication. The objectives of this study were to analyze fracture healing, complication rate and functional outcome. Our hypothesis is that this technique allows a high rate of consolidation and a return to the previous state in terms of autonomy and place of residence...

Brain-computer interfaces are commonly proposed to assist individuals with locked-in syndrome to interact with the world around them. In this paper, we present a pipeline to move from recorded brain signals to real-time classification on a low-power platform, such as IBM's TrueNorth Neurosynaptic System. Our results on a EEG-based hand squeeze task show that using a convolutional neural network and a time preserving signal representation strategy provides a good balance between high accuracy and feasibility in a real-time application...
