Barbara St Marie
The risk of opioid misuse for the treatment of chronic pain requires nurses to understand the societal impact of chronic pain and prescription opioid misuse. Patient safety is imperative while managing pain, including orofacial pain. When opioids are required, identifying risk to the patient through thorough assessment using opioid risk tools, monitoring using toxicology screens, and using state prescription drug monitoring databases, will help reduce risk for misuse or abuse. Treatment plans must be balanced using multimodal and interprofessional approaches in order to capitalize on the diverse knowledge of the healthcare team to provide the best care to patients...

Pain is a prevalent global health concern, and pain assessment and treatment is a patient right. This evidence-based practice project targeted translating pain management interventions into practice for adult and pediatric patients undergoing needle stick procedures in ambulatory settings. Evidence-based interventions should consistently be offered to patients who often experience procedural pain or discomfort. Implementation of the practice change included multiple interactive, reinforcing strategies. Pre/post-implementation evaluation measures included clinician knowledge, perceptions, and current practices...

A 13-year-old boy with Down syndrome (DS) presents to the pediatric otolaryngologist after being lost to follow-up for several years. The child is accompanied by his stepmother, who has recently been granted full custody together with his father. The stepmother states that the child's mother was non-compliant with his medical care and now, as she describes it, they are "playing catch-up." According to his stepmother, he has a history of recurrent ear infections and had tympanostomy tubes inserted in the past (date(s) unknown)...

Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) are developed to inform clinical decision-making and standardize care based on scientific evidence, benefits and harms of treatment, and patient preferences to achieve optimal health outcomes. This survey study explored the level of awareness of otorhinolaryngology (ORL) nurses in using CPGs in clinical practice. The study sought to answer the following: (1) How aware are ORL nurses of CPGs developed by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF)? (2) Which CPGs are most widely identified by ORL nurses? and (3) Do ORL nurses perceive that AAO-HNSF guidelines can benefit their practice? An online survey was developed, piloted, and launched to all eligible registered nurse SOHN members in October 2015...

All health care professionals want to provide their patients with the best care possible. In order to accomplish this, the most current research must be incorporated into their daily practice. Many medical specialty societies have developed clinical practice guidelines to help facilitate achievement of safe, high quality patient care. This manuscript highlights the recommendations from the clinical practice guidelines developed and published through the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation...

Purpose Patients with cancers of the head and neck experience multiple distressing symptoms. The purpose of this study was to describe occurrence of symptoms and level of symptom distress reported by head and neck cancer (HNC) patients in either active treatment or palliative care. Methods Sixty HNC patients from one community in Southwest Florida were included. Patients reported presence of symptoms based on a list provided and indicated the distress caused by the symptom on a 0-10 scale. Results Patients most commonly reported dry mouth (68%), fatigue (62%), feeling drowsy (62%), pain (58%), difficulty swallowing (58%) and poor appetite (52%)...

Introduction The care of head and neck cancer patients is complex and requires the expertise of professionals from across the allied health spectrum. Perioperative nurses play a crucial role in ensuring that head and neck cancer patients receive high-quality care, but are not afforded the opportunity to witness preoperative and postoperative management decisions. We hypothesized that shadowing a senior head and neck surgeon in an outpatient setting would result in improved understanding of clinical decision making and pathophysiology with the ultimate goal of improving patient care...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Emily Sanders
Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is now recognized as a major risk factor for the development of oropharyngeal head and neck cancers, specifically HPV type 16. HPV-16 positive oropharyngeal cancer may in fact represent a distinct disease entity which is associated with improved prognosis and survival (National Cancer Institute, 2016). In this study, we examined the characteristics of patients with early stage HPV-16 positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma and their post-operative course contrasting the findings to patients with HPV-16 negative tumors...

Approximately 1,500 tonsillectomies are performed annually at a large pediatric academic medical center each year. Families need to be educated on how to care for their child after this surgery. Most tonsillectomy patients are discharged home either the same day as surgery or after one night of observation, resulting in post-operative tonsillectomy recovery and care falling upon the patient's family. Multiple quality improvement efforts to improve family education post tonsillectomy surgery have been performed over the last several years at a large pediatric academic medical center...

REVIEW
Vinciya Pandian, Vaibhav Garg, Ryan Antar, Simon Best
AIM: The aim of this review was to assess and synthesize current literature evaluating caregiver education and coping after children were discharged with a tracheostomy. BACKGROUND: Tracheostomy tube placement is a transformative event for the child who receives it and the family members who care for the child. As a result, it is imperative to provide caregivers a comprehensive and effective education on how to care for the tracheostomy and how to cope with a tracheostomy...
