: 39 Background: Tumour factors (eg primary site, size) helpful in prognostication in early stage cancer may be less important than patient factors, such as Karnofsky performance status (KPS), later in the disease trajectory. We evaluated the utilization of the parameters attitude (ATT) and psychosocial support (PSS) in predicting remaining lifespan by two experienced multidisciplinary teams (MDT). METHODS: After clinical assessment of consecutive patients, a quantitative clinical prediction of survival (CPS) was made prospectively, independently and anonymously by each health care provider (HCP)...

BACKGROUND: Self-assessment in nursing education is a ubiquitous tool for developing independent learners and critical thinkers. However, self-assessment may be influenced by both demographic and perceptual factors, making it far more complex than students or instructors realize. METHOD: A demographically heterogeneous group of nursing students (N = 322) was asked to evaluate their performance of a standard clinical procedure-the insertion of a needle into a peripheral vein of an arm simulator; their assessments were compared with those of an instructor...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic relapsing condition with a high burden of illness and need for urgent and healthcare services. Recent international quality measures for IBD have highlighted the need for dedicated IBD nurses, and published studies have demonstrated associations between telephone calls and urgent/emergent care utilization. At baseline, all calls routed to a nurse were staffed by general nurses involved in multiple gastroenterology sections. We evaluated the impact of the sequential introduction of 2 dedicated IBD "nurse navigators" at a tertiary IBD center on telephone call volume and other parameters...

Susan K Patton
Nationally, approximately one third of older adults fall each year. Falls and resulting injury result in decreased mobility, functional impairment, loss of independence, and increased mortality. Utilization of evidence-based protocols by health care providers to identify older adults at risk of falling is limited, and rates of participation by older adults in prevention activities is low. Because of nursing's increasing role in caring for older adults, development of fall prevention education for nursing students would result in increased awareness of the need for fall prevention in community-dwelling older adults and increased access of older adults to falls risk assessment...

The Postgraduate Year (PGY) Program allows doctors-in-training to learn about the diagnosis, treatment and nursing of various common, general diseases. These items form the core curriculum and are mostly learned through caring for patients and clinical teaching. Doctors-in-training are evaluated for their knowledge through written tests or assignments, based on which the effectiveness of their training is also assessed; however, this generally produces a negative learning attitude among them. So we introduced the flipped classroom into PGY training program to change PGY students' learning behavior...
